The City of San Francisco is developing a new earthquake retrofit program to identify and strengthen vulnerable concrete buildings. We are convening a Working Group of internal and external partners to provide guidance and feedback to City staff on the development of the Concrete Building Safety Program. The Working Group consists of approximately 25 people representing different stakeholder groups that may be impacted by the Program, including residential building owners and managers, commercial and industrial building owners and managers, tenants rights advocates, business advocates, builders and developers, labor unions, and technical experts.
The Working Group will:
- Help the City understand the concerns of stakeholders from vulnerable communities
- Provide useful recommendations for program policy & design that support programmatic goals
- Help ensure program products have a high level of usability among the general public
- Support the program at public meetings or participate in other forms of community education and outreach
