Have "Your Say"
on the Future of Our City

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

This group of caring citizens has come together to help bridge the gap that exists between our city's government and its residents to better meet challenges we face such as budget cuts, strain on our environmental resources, and an uncertain economic future.

We intend to play an active role in guiding decisions that will affect our ability to create a sustainable and vibrant community, and we invite you to participate. Mark this page to stay current on upcoming issues, activities, and concerns that may be of interest to you.

Some of its members along with other citizens founded "People for Housing Not High Rises" in 2004, conducting the successful No on Measure Q campaign.
