Tune into ULI San Francisco member Matt Slepin’s excellent podcast interview with San Francisco Planning Director John Rahaim.
John talks about his time spent working in Pittsburgh, PA and Seattle, WA before coming to become the Planning Director in San Francisco.
John opens up about diversifying the Planning Department’s responsibilities, including co-leading the city’s efforts on sea level rise and building a community development team focused on stabilizing vulnerable neighborhoods, to leading the city’s efforts on transportation planning.
Also discussed are San Francisco’s major challenges, John’s advice to aspiring planners, and a healthy exploration of a career dedicated to public service.
