Policies for Commission on the Environment
The Commission on the Environment advises the Mayor and Board of Supervisors on environmental matters. Suggestions from the Commission usually take the form of Resolutions, which, when adopted, are directed to the Board of Supervisors. Many of these resolutions have informed legislation adopted by the City & County of San Francisco. The following are resolutions the Commission on the Environment has passed over the years.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
