SF launches PolicySF to help governments share ideas

 
 

The City of San Francisco has launched PolicySF, a Website to ‘help communities share good ideas with one another.’ The site provides ‘policy toolkits’ with FAQs, processes, sample policy documents and ordinances on SF-specific initiatives. Other governments can also share their ideas.

Initial toolkits includes Healthy SF, Plastic Bag, SF Promise, JobsNowSF! and Open Data.
