2018 Participatory Budgeting Results


I am proud to announce the results of the District 10 Participatory Budgeting process. During this year’s program, hundreds of District 10 residents voted to decide on how we should spend $250,000 to improve and enhance our neighborhoods.


The winning projects are listed below in the order of the number of votes received. Thank you to all who participated in this process. From submitting a project idea to getting fellow residents involved, your participation made a difference. The process gave me an opportunity to hear from all of you about your ideas, priorities and vision for District 10.

On April 21st, 2004 the San Francisco Office of the Public Defender hosted a
Juvenile Justice Summit; themed “Raising Up Our Youth: Building Safer Communities”.
From there, the idea of MAGIC (Mobilization for Adolescent Growth in our Communities) was officially born. Since then we have worked in collaboration with community residents and leaders, faith based organizations, local government, nonprofit organizations, and schools to
address the needs of Bayview Hunters Point children, youth and families.
We are so grateful for the partnerships we have made over the last 15 years,
and are looking forward to another 15 years and beyond.
Happy Birthday BMAGIC!
