Late last month, the Mission’s fourth 100-percent-affordable housing development broke ground, and three — perhaps four — more are on their way. What’s more, Mayor London Breed seems to have an interest in building even more affordable housing in the neighborhood. Just yesterday, she rode around in a lowrider with Mission leaders to scope out affordable housing sites.

But the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community development also needs to hear from ordinary District 9 residents like you. And that’s why on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church, MOHCD will be asking about your needs for housing, social services, barriers to fair housing, and improving housing affordability.

The Planning Department and the Mayor’s Office of Workforce and Economic Development will be using your input for their strategies as well.

If it was my neighborhood, I would want a say on which programs are prioritized,” said Kim Dubin, a spokeswoman with MOHCD. 

Dubin said that input will help shape their office’s priorities for program funding and service needs. It will also play heavily into how the office shapes its strategic plans

Participants will likely give their input in breakout groups that will focus on different priorities and areas of need.

In addition to the forum — or if you don’t have time to attend — share your input through this online survey.

When: Wednesday, Feb. 13, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
