Entering 2020, none of us could have anticipated the events about to unfold:
a global pandemic
a mass awakening to racial injustice
severe wildfires
an endangered democracy
Together, these events provided a mirror, allowing us to see the true design of our societal systems…
and the disturbing yet predictable results of that design.
As a policy organization with deep roots in urban planning, SPUR sought solutions that focused on the essential elements of place: housing, transportation and the environment.

But creating great places is not enough.
For the Bay Area to thrive, we must also ensure opportunity and belonging for people.
SPUR staked out new ground this year, initiating a policy practice in economic justice.

We sought solutions for the thousands of Bay Area residents who experience the gaps in our society’s safety net…
and for the small businesses that underpin our collective economic welfare, many of whom are struggling to survive.

While we rolled up our sleeves to respond to the immediate crisis, we also kept our eyes on its structural causes.
We focused on the solutions that would safeguard our communities in the future:

producing enough housing for all income levels

preventing displacement of long-time residents
creating a transit system that’s fast, inexpensive and easy to use

protecting communities from sea level rise.
Most importantly, we honed in on the key elements of what it will take for the Bay Area’s cities and towns to thrive in the future… 

the principles and policies that provide for quality of place...

and those that ensure diverse, vibrant communities in which all people know they belong. 
2020 presented enormous challenges. But with continued commitment, our response to these challenges can serve not only to address today’s crises…

but to lay the groundwork for a stronger, healthier region for generations to come.


SPUR’s research considered how the region can equitably tackle its biggest challenges, from the immediate crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic to long-term issues such as housing affordability, economic inequality and climate change. SPUR continued work on its Regional Strategy initiative and is nearing publication of this vision for the Bay Area of 2070.

A Future Bay Area for Everyone

SPUR released the report Model Places, which envisioned a future Bay Area that can welcome everyone. In partnership with AECOM, SPUR investigated what it would take to accommodate new residents and jobs without paving over green spaces or pushing out long-time community members. Using land-use data to assign “place types'' to every part of the region, Model Places imagined what six of these place types — from residential suburbs to dense downtowns — could look like if they grew in more equitable and sustainable ways.

Working Toward Seamless Transit

SPUR continued work on how to make the region’s two dozen transit services function like one rational, easy-to-use network. The Future of Transportation described how public transit and private emerging mobility providers, such as ride-hailing and shared-scooter companies, can play to their respective strengths, function as a seamless network and provide access for everyone. A separate report, A Regional Transit Coordinator for the Bay Area, looked at what it would take to coordinate transit operations and investments across a cohesive regional network. The answer lies in giving one institution the job — and the authority to carry it out.

A Close Look at the Housing Crisis

SPUR took an in-depth look at how much housing the Bay Area needs to build to sufficiently address the region’s housing crisis and stop income inequality from getting worse. What It Will Really Take to Create an Affordable Bay Area determined how many units the region should have built over the last 20 years and laid the groundwork for future efforts to provide housing for all residents of the region. This research helped to generate a series of policy recommendations, to be published this spring. SPUR also partnered with California Forward to produce a paper that explored whether state housing policy discourages housing production.


Columbus and Union, San Francisco

A More Equitable and Inclusive Economy

SPUR launched a new area of work, Economic Justice, to explore policies that can enable all people to gain economic security and participate in the Bay Area’s thriving economy. The report Undue Burden looked at three options for instituting a low-income sales tax credit or supplement to create a more equitable tax code. Mending the Net examined three state benefits programs and explored how application processes could be streamlined so that more people get the support they need. And Ladders Out of Poverty looked at the successes of existing unrestricted cash transfer programs and offered five options the region should consider pursuing.

Building Transit in Less Time, for Less Money

Delivering transit megaprojects is notoriously difficult. They take decades from start to finish and frequently go over budget. SPUR’s report More for Less offered 10 policy proposals for delivering transportation projects in less time and for less money to create a more reliable, integrated and frequent transit network. A companion report, Infrastructure Bay Area, expanded on SPUR’s recommendation to create a specialized entity that would lead the procurement and delivery of all of the Bay Area’s major transit projects.

Lake Merritt, Oakland

Strengthening the Region’s Resiliency

The Bay Area faces myriad climate-related threats, including wildfires and rising sea levels. SPUR released Safety First: Improving Hazard Resilience in the Bay Area, which used a region-wide lens to look at how to improve resilience to multiple hazards. This report offered policy recommendations for enhancing data and information gathering, community planning and funding to strengthen resilience to wildfires, flooding and earthquakes throughout the Bay Area.

Guadalupe River, San José

Inclusive Public Spaces

As more and more Bay Area residents find themselves without homes, it is essential that cities design and manage public spaces for coexistence so that people of all backgrounds can find joy, belonging and safety in them. As part of an ongoing project to reimagine how San José’s Guadalupe River Park can better serve the community, SPUR worked with Gehl Studio to produce Coexistence in Public Space, an engagement toolkit designed to help cities create shared spaces in places with homelessness. The toolkit has had national influence and is being used in cities across the country as well as locally.



Throughout the pandemic, SPUR participated in critical economic recovery task forces and convened local leaders to create guidance on how cities in the Bay Area could support their residents and small businesses. Seeing an opportunity to influence policy on a broader scale, SPUR also grew its presence at the state level and co-sponsored three pieces of legislation that were passed in September 2020.

Stockton Street, San Francisco

Responding to the Pandemic

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, SPUR adjusted its focus to respond to the immediate crises facing the communities of the Bay Area. Under the Rising Together initiative, SPUR worked with community partners and stakeholders to provide policy recommendations to safeguard small businesses and ground-floor retail, address crippling water debt, expand access to social safety net programs, save transit from economic collapse, reallocate public spaces for healthy uses and shore up critical housing production. SPUR was also a strong voice in support of slow streets — closing certain routes to traffic so residents could comfortably enjoy the outdoors.

Economic Recovery Efforts

During the COVID-19 pandemic, SPUR leaders participated in the region’s major recovery task forces, including the San Francisco Economic Recovery Task Force, the Silicon Valley Recovery Roundtable, the City of Oakland’s Economic Recovery Advisory Council and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC’s) Blue Ribbon Transit Recovery Task Force. SPUR advocated for policies and practices that would help cities in the Bay Area recover while laying the groundwork for a more equitable future.

State Legislation on Housing, Emergency Shelter and Sustainable Transportation

SPUR co-sponsored three bills that were signed into law in September 2020. AB 831 clarified 2017 legislation that streamlined the housing approvals process (SB 35), making it simpler and faster to build multifamily housing with affordable units. AB 2553 made it easier for cities that declare a shelter crisis to provide shelter. SB 288 expanded California Environmental Quality Act exemptions to speed up the delivery of the state’s sustainable transportation projects, including bicycle and pedestrian projects, buses, bus rapid transit, light rail and zero-emission fueling infrastructure.


1st Street, San José

San José’s 2040 General Plan

SPUR co-chaired the Envision San José 2040 Task Force and provided critical insight as the city reevaluated key goals of its general plan and made adjustments moving forward. Among the many topics SPUR has helped San José address are housing issues, the implementation of urban villages, Coyote Valley preservation and policies to reduce driving.

Embarcadero, San Francisco

Adapting to Rising Sea Levels

SPUR served on Bay Adapt’s advisory committee to help establish regional agreement on what is needed to protect people and the environment from sea level rise. The San Francisco Bay Shoreline Adaptation Atlas, a collaboration between SPUR and the San Francisco Estuary Institute, has served as a guiding resource for this group as it works to address this imminent threat.

MacArthur BART, Oakland

Encouraging Transit-Oriented Development

SPUR worked with MTC’s technical advisory committee to update the commission’s transit-oriented development policy to help ensure that the Bay Area continues to leverage its transit hubs to deliver dense, diverse and vibrant communities that take advantage of transit resources and provide stability for existing residents.

Building a Strong Coalition

SPUR was a lead convener of the new California Home Builders Alliance, an informal advocacy coalition focusing on state legislation and regulatory reforms to build more housing. Priorities include streamlining the approvals process and changing zoning rules to increase the supply of housing, particularly for lower- and moderate-income households.

Promoting Food as Medicine

SPUR led a statewide coalition of more than 100 organizations to advocate that the California Department of Health Care Services officially permit Medi-Cal funds to be used, on a pilot basis, to pay for interventions such as produce prescriptions, grocery boxes and food pharmacies, making healthy food more affordable for low-income Californians.

Expanding Access to Fresh Produce

SPUR’s Double Up Food Bucks program doubled in size as the pandemic spurred a jump in the number of people using CalFresh, the state food assistance program. By the end of 2020, low-income families had redeemed twice as many Double Up Food Bucks benefits as they had in the previous year, helping them better afford fresh fruits and vegetables.



In March, shelter-in-place orders stymied one of SPUR’s greatest strengths: bringing people together in person to discuss ideas and learn from each other. In one afternoon, SPUR pivoted its public forums to online “digital discourses” to meet people where they were. During a time when many folks felt isolated, SPUR continued to build community by bringing people together to discuss how the Bay Area can address the most pressing challenges.

SPUR virtual forum

Expanding the Audience, Virtually

SPUR’s digital discourses attracted more than 15,000 people and featured an array of amazing speakers covering a range of timely topics. Key partners collaborated to deliver engaging and thought-provoking content to residents in their homes. SPUR hosted two programs with KQED on civic engagement, which drew more than 3,000 viewers. In partnership with Move LA, SPUR also co-hosted a three-part series called Vision 2022, which explored the critical need for major action on climate change and the possibility of a climate-funding ballot measure in 2022.

Equity and Public Space: Ideas + Action 2020

Equity and Public Space: Ideas + Action 2020

At a time when public spaces — and who gets to use them — took on unprecedented importance for our communities, SPUR’s first Ideas + Action symposium brought together public space experts from across North America and attendees from even farther away. More than 1,500 people took part in keynotes, panel discussions and small-group workshops that explored the challenges and triumphs of creating and maintaining inclusive and equitable public spaces.

A Bigger and Better SPUR Voter Guide

Ahead of a generation-defining election, SPUR expanded its November 2020 voter guide to include all state propositions and local measures in San Francisco, San José and Oakland. SPUR researched 35 measures, weighed the pros and cons of each and considered their equity impacts before issuing voting recommendations. The guide garnered over 350,000 unique page views in October alone.

Bay Area Mayors

Mayors’ Forum: Leadership in a Time of Crisis

In August, SPUR hosted a forum with Mayors Breed, Liccardo and Schaaf of San Francisco, San José and Oakland, respectively, to discuss how the cities of the Bay Area can collectively work toward a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous region, especially in the context of a global pandemic and economic recession.

Honoring Bay Area Leaders

SPUR’s 2020 Silver SPUR Awards honored three extraordinary individuals striving to build belonging in the Bay Area: Kofi Bonner, Carla Javits and john a. powell. SPUR welcomed nearly 2,000 attendees to the virtual event, which featured a conversation between The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah and SPUR President and CEO Alicia John-Baptiste.

SPUR’s President, Alicia John-Baptiste

The Road to Renewal

As the world enters a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, we at SPUR are looking forward with cautious optimism. We know there is a long road ahead: Not only did the pandemic unmask serious structural challenges in the Bay Area and beyond, it exacerbated them. Our communities have been devastated, our small businesses are under threat and our downtowns are largely empty.

The path to renewal is steep, but there is also cause for hope. Never before has there been such a shared desire for a “better normal.” And we have proven across the region that when we work together, we can overcome even the deadliest of threats. That spirit of cooperation is essential to achieving a brighter future.

Throughout the pandemic, SPUR has remained committed to bringing our best policy thinking to the table and collaborating with civic leaders throughout the region to advance a stronger Bay Area. This spring, we will publish the SPUR Regional Strategy, a road map for the equitable, sustainable and prosperous region so many of us wish to see. In the coming year, we will work to implement the central principles of this strategy — from graceful growth to a just economy — to ensure that our region experiences not only a recovery but a renewal.

Facing a global pandemic, racial injustice and severe climate dangers has sharpened our focus at SPUR. We are more eager than ever to bring to life our vision for a Bay Area where all people thrive. We are grateful for your support and partnership in this most challenging of years, and we look forward to what we will create together in the year to come.
