Mayor’s Office

Survey seeks reasons S.F. businesses may not grow

The Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development is asking business owners and employees to take a 35-question online survey to determine the barriers to business growth in San Francisco.

The survey, which can be accessed at www.sfgov.org/site/moed, is part of the San Francisco Economic Strategy, a voter-mandated planning process intended to make it easier to do business in The City. The results of the survey will be used to create city policies aimed at fostering economic development.

Ethics Commission

Panel to toot own horn at today’s meeting

The City’s Ethics Commission will present the commission’s history and role in San Francisco’s politics today.

The commission will also discuss doing away with paper filing and having candidates file the necessary documents only via electronic mail. City voters established the Ethics Commission in November 1993 with the passage of Proposition K. The commission works to ensure ethical behavior by politicians and city office hopefuls.

The Ethics Commission meets today, 10 a.m. at 25 Van Ness Ave. in room 220.

Department of the Environment

Endangered Species Act’s impact on S.F. discussed

The City’s Department of the Environment will hold a series of brown bag lunches starting today with a forum on the Endangered Species Act, its impact on San Francisco and what can be done to protect animals. On Thursday, the department will host 16 artists from the United Kingdom who recently returned from a trip to the Arctic. The artists will share their experiences as well as their work. Both events begin at noon at 11 Grove St. and are free to the public.
