On Tuesday, the North Beach Library/Joe DiMaggio Playground Master Plan cleared another hurdle at the Board of Supervisors meeting. The board shot down an appeal of the project's final environmental impact report. This decision hopefully marks the end of a two-year battle between people who want change and people who want everything to stay the same, forever. The plan calls for the library branch to be rebuilt on a triangle-shaped space at the corner of Lombard Street and Columbus Avenue. "The North Beach library is one of the most used sites in the city," Supervisor David Chiu said, "and from my perspective, the current library has been inadequate, has been inaccessible, and has been insufficient for needs and it has been seismically unsafe."
