San Francisco Bay Area Renters' Federation

Ask a question:

Commenting at a public meeting is a time consuming process.

SFBARF #1 intern, Sade Kammen, interviewed participants at the October Planning Commission hearings, she found the average wait time to be 112.5 minutes, or almost 2 hours!

We filed a complaint with the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force arguing the Brown Act (requiring the opportunity for public comment) is violated when it is impossible for the public to know when their item of interest will be called.

Read the complaint here.

A hearing on the complaint has been scheduled:
Date: February 17th, 2015
Time: 4:00 pm or 5:00pm, who knows though, really.
Location: SF City Hall, Room 408

Come Testify, this means YOU!

I KNOW you have a story of waiting all day for your item to be called. Come share, possible happy hour afterwards!

If you absolutely cannot come, please email your testimony to . Reference File No. 14108. .
