The Commons SF presents an evening's training for social justice advocates interested in maintaining the "public" in public infrastructure.
The topic is "Land and Public Infrastructure." In two hours you'll get new and powerful insights and arguments in how to fund public education, public transportation, fire and police protection, the court system, museums, health care, bridges, roads and highways.
The Commons SF offers a sage yet neglected perspective, namely that land values reflect the growth of community and should be socialized. This model reconciles expenditures with services by intimately linking locational value with public revenue.
