The Bay Area needs you.
This has been a great year for California. We’re building high-speed rail. We raised the gas tax to pay for better transportation. We even made some progress on housing reform.
The Bay Area is a central player in this progress. But our cities are also struggling to solve day-to-day problems. Thousands of our neighbors sleep in tents every night. We have the highest housing costs in the country. And many people are forced to sit in traffic for hours to get to work. This is not acceptable.
Our job at SPUR is to solve these problems. And we are not as far away from figuring them out as it might feel. The region we envision is affordable and inclusive. It is linked by high-speed transit that’s easy and convenient to use. It leads the world as the first carbon-free metropolis.
Together, we can make the Bay Area a model for how a metropolitan region should work.
We are making real progress with your support. Please consider making a gift to SPUR at this year end as an investment in our capacity to solve the problems facing the Bay Area.
