Sunset Forward

Sunset Forward is a community-driven process to identify current needs and craft a collective vision for a livable, diverse, and thriving future in the Sunset District. Through the participation of residents, we hope to craft a community plan which will set local priorities on housing, transportation, and neighborhood businesses and services in District 4.

If you live, work, study, or play in District 4, please come participate in the community planning process! Sign up to receive email updates about the project, including future events and opportunities to participate.

Sunset Forward is a collaboration between the Office of District 4 Supervisor Gordon Mar, the San Francisco Planning Department, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, and the District 4 Youth and Families Network (D4YFN), a coalition of non-profit community based-organizations in the Sunset District.

We are hosting a series of focus group discussions to understand the community’s most pressing needs, and hear personal stories and perspectives from a diverse cross-section of District 4 community members.
