Today the Supes will vote on the legislation for better signage at the city's POPOS (Privately Owned Public Open Spaces). Plaques are already required, but since there's no regulation on size or location, the signs and POPOS are hard to find. Back in June the Planning Commission approved the new rules, which would require signs to have information including hours of operation, features of the space, directions, and a uniform logo. Now the Board of Supervisors will have the final vote, which would amend the Planning Code. These changes are set to pair up nicely with the new SPUR guidebook app that documents and maps downtown's POPOS, making the spaces even easier to find.
