"Let's Chat, Brisbane"

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

community conversation

With the passage of Measure JJ last November, many community members have been asking what happens next in Brisbane.  While much planning still needs to be done, we believe it’s time for a different type of conversation.  We're not here to debate Yes or No on whether we need more housing or not.  It’s time for our community to come TOGETHER.

Talking directly with others who live and work in Brisbane – people who care about this city as much as you – builds a stronger foundation for our community’s future.  Before a shovel ever breaks ground, let’s share our ideas about how to strengthen our community.

The City’s aim now is to hear from you.  We hope that you can join us on March 21st to express your experiences, hopes, and concerns.  Questions to consider in advance of this first conversation include:

  • How are you and the people you know experiencing the issue of housing in Brisbane?
  • What hopes do you have for the future of our community?
  • How can development of the Baylands improve quality of life for the entire Brisbane community?

Please contact us at creatingcommunity@brisbaneca.org or (415) 508-2120 with your suggestions for how to make this conversation as inclusive as possible.  We look forward to seeing you at Mission Blue Center (475 Mission Blue Drive) on March 21st!  Dinner is included and childcare will be available at BES through our Parks and Rec. Dept.  Please RSVP for the event by Monday the 18th at 5pm here or click on the image above.
