With objections and accusations including that the elimination of language requiring “a neighborhood-support community planning process” for planning code changes to further accommodate housing near transit will “make it likely that the efforts of the residents to maintain neighborhood character will be subordinated to the City’s growth objectives,” it’s a long list of appellants behind the appeal of San Francisco’s plan for housing growth.
The signed appellants include the Pacific Heights Residents Association, the Cow Hollow Association, the Presidio Heights Association of Neighbors, the Jordan Park Improvement Association, the Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association and eight others, all members of San Franciscans for Livable Neighborhoods (SFLN).
Other objections include “changing the definition of “major transit lines,” where infill housing would be encouraged, to include major bus lines running through the city,” and the elimination of “the policy basis which maintained density limits designed to protect neighborhood character.”
Approved by the Planning Commission in March, the Board of Supervisors will hear the appeal of the plan this afternoon.
