About the Bay Area Monitor
Launched in 1975, the Bay Area Monitor is published six times a year by the League of Women Voters of the Bay Area Education Fund, and primarily covers transportation, air quality, water, open space, and land use issues in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The publication is distributed to League members, elected and appointed officials, government employees, libraries, media outlets, nonprofit organizations, business leaders, and engaged residents. Every edition is also posted to this website.
To receive print copies of the Monitor, or to sign up to receive e-mail notifications when new editions are posted online, please visit our subscription page.
