CPMC and Moscone and Warriors, Oh My!

New, 1 comment

Maybe they're hustling to get as much done before the holidays as possible, but it'll be a jam-packed agenda at the Board of Supervisors hearing today. Let's dive right in.

CPMC: The on-going drama surrounding the California Pacific Medical Center's long range plan will hopefully be concluded today, as the Supes will take a final vote whether or not to uphold the certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report. The CPMC plan has been under a lot of heat in response to worries over jobs for minorities, health care expenses, and the fate of medical care in the Mission at St. Lukes.

TINY APARTMENTS: After a slew of continuations, the board will (attempt to) vote on Sup. Wiener's ordinance reducing the minimum square footage requirement for Efficiency Dwelling Units to 220 sq.ft. There was some back-and-forth with the Planning Commission about capping the number of units constructed per year, but everyone seems to be on the same page now.

MOSCONE: The Supes will vote to establish a business-based business improvement district to be known as the "Moscone Expansion District." A Moscone Center expansion project would add more than 200,000 sq.ft. of underground and above ground convention and meeting space, and the district will serve to increase hotel room taxes to help pay for the convention center's growth and renovations.

WARRIORS: Another day, another Warriors Arena issue. The Supes will vote on a resolution finding the Piers 30-32/Seawall Lot 330 fiscally feasible and to urge City and Port officials to make evaluating the proposed project among its highest priorities. We're sure there will be plenty of public speakers who will argue otherwise.

NUDITY: Anti-public nudity (sort of) crusader Sup. Wiener has proposed legislation to "prohibit nudity on public streets, sidewalks, street medians, parklets, and plazas, and on public transit vehicles, stations, platforms, and stops, except as part of permitted parades, fairs, and festivals." A few weeks ago the City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee voted to recommend approval of the legislation, and today the Supes will take their full board vote on the matter. We'll see if anyone gets naked at this hearing too.
