Thank you to everyone in the jobs group for helping make the Reset San Francisco launch event such a success! We want to keep the discussion going online so that the ideas we began to touch upon during our discussion can further develop, perhaps into actionable solutions.

One of the big issues several members of the jobs group pointed out were the regulations and roadblocks that can hamper business growth or keep new companies out of San Francisco altogether. The discretionary review process was a source of some frustration, as was the issue of why storefronts remain empty even when there are business that would like to move in.

I’d like to invite the members of the jobs group – as well as any other San Franciscan who has an opinion on jobs and business in the city – to voice their opinions as to the way forward. Or, if you think there are bigger fish to fry as to the jobs issue, what are they?
