About TransForm's Campaign on the South San Francisco Downtown Plan:
TransForm, in coalition with a number of social justice, labor, housing, and environmental advocacy groups, is working to influence the South San Francisco Downtown Specific Plan. Our goal is to work constructively with City staff and elected officials, advocating for a plan that outlines equitable strategies to make the City’s Downtown and Caltrain Station Area a thriving neighborhood in which to live, work, and play. Check out the South San Francisco Downtown Plan Coalition's platform document by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
The Plan represents a great opportunity for the City of South San Francisco and Region to capitalize on the area’s already walkable downtown streets, transit access, and proximity to a major regional job center. To visit the City's official plan webpage go to:http://www.ssfdowntownplan.org/
