Are You an Urbanist?


Urbanists are people who love cities. We believe that cities are the key to our future. They foster economic innovation. They facilitate the invention of new art forms and new political movements. And they hold the answer to our ecological problems. 


At SPUR, we work to make our cities live up to their highest potential.


Through research, education and advocacy, SPUR promotes good planning and good government in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a member-supported nonprofit organization, we play the crucial role of uniting citizens to jointly craft solutions to the common problems our cities face.


Now is the time to join our movement.


Founding membership starts at $75 and includes:

• A year of The Urbanist, the West Coast’s leading planning and policy magazine

• Free or discounted admission to more than 200 events

• An official SPUR membership card


Join as founding members at $1,000 for 2 designated members, with 2 tickets >>
Join as founding members at $2,500 for 4 designated members, with 4 tickets >>
