It's time to fix San Francisco.

We are a city in crisis. Our officials have failed at the basics: housing, transit, schools, and public safety. For too long, San Francisco has feared change. A truly world class city must embrace change. Outcomes matter more than ideology. That's why GrowSF pursues common sense solutions to create a San Francisco that works for everyone.

What we're working towards.

Visit our issues page

to learn more and read our in-depth platform

Build more housing at all price points

From young families seeking homeownership to seniors who want to downsize, everyone needs new housing.

Invest in public safety

Fund the police and elect a reform-minded district attorney who will effectively prosecute crimes by dangerous and repeat offenders.

Reduce homelessness

Build shelters of all types: navigation centers and innovative "tiny homes" as well as permanent supportive housing.

Streamline small business regulations

Celebrate the new ideas that can save our local economy instead of stifling innovation.

Improve public schools so they treat parents like partners.

Elect a school board that puts the needs of students and families above ideology.

Make our public transit system fast, safe, and reliable.

From subway tunnels to bus lanes, build infrastructure projects that get transit out of traffic — without letting them become boondoggles.

Reimagine how we use public space.

Create an oceanside park at the former Great Highway, make Golden Gate Park’s JFK Drive permanently car-free, and expand outdoor dining.

Ensure City Hall embraces innovation and is free from corruption.

We need to audit every city program and only pay for what works.

Our Mission

GrowSF is a non-partisan group of volunteers who want San Francisco to be safe, clean, affordable, and vibrant.

Visit our mission page

for a full look at our goals, strategy, and long-term vision.

GrowSF prioritizes outcomes over ideologies. Our local leaders are not focused on actual progress, and residents feel under-informed about local issues and elections. We want to change that.

Our elected officials have failed us on the basics: housing, transit, schools, and public safety. We want common-sense solutions to the problems that regular people face. It’s time to fix San Francisco.

GrowSF supports solutions that embrace San Francisco values. We celebrate art and culture, value compassion, seek sustainability, and practice social justice. GrowSF supports a city government that is efficiently managed, responsive to quality of life issues, and above all follows common sense.
