The Sunset District is a residential community comprised of families, strong small businesses and sweeping ocean views. Situated at the western edge of San Francisco, and surrounded by Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach and the San Francisco Zoo, the Sunset District is an oasis in the City. Supervisor Katy Tang, working with neighborhood leaders, residents and subject matter experts, is initiating a community process to build a blueprint for the Sunset District with goals, objectives and strategies for the next decade and beyond. This blueprint is an important step in defining the community’s collective vision in five key areas: children & families, public safety, economic development, transportation and pedestrian safety, and land use. This process will guide the Supervisor’s Office by providing a strong platform to advocate for funding and grant opportunities, and in developing partnerships to move District 4 forward.
The Empowered Communities Program‘s Neighborhood HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco. The HUB initiative provides essential support to residents as they recover community stressors and disasters. A national conversation has begun which points to the importance of creating strategies for local organizations and residents to assume lifesaving responsibilities in the event of a disaster. These activities include search and rescue, mass feeding, and supporting people sheltering in place.
