2019 North Beach Neighbors Membership Survey

North Beach Strongly Supports The Central Subway
Our strong support for the extension of the Central Subway to North Beach continues. Last year, 89% supported the extension.
Our Complete Streets committee is focused on making sure the extension is a top priority for SFMTA and all officials.
More Information is Needed about a Possible Navigation Center
To help our Members get answers, we wrote a letter to Mayor Breed, Supervisor Peskin, and the The Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing. From that letter and follow-up discussions, we learned that there are no longer plans for a Navigation Center at the Bay & Kearny site, and no other locations in all of District 3 are being considered.
Quality of Life is Getting Worse for Most
This is similar to last year’s survey in which 60% of respondents thought the quality of life was declining.
