SocketSite reports that the San Francisco Planning Commission will this week review an ordinance that essentially will make it tougher to demolish, merge or convert existing San Francisco residential units.
The measure, which is designed to protect the city’s affordable housing stock, was introduced on July 30. It would prohibit approval of a demolition, merger or conversion on a property if one or more units had been subject to a no-fault eviction over the previous decade.
The city’s planning department has recommended approval with modifications. Specifically, those modifications are that the prohibition be triggered by no-fault evictions that take place after the ordinance’s effective date, and that the prohibition last five rather than ten years.
This issue will be heard on Thursday, Oct. 24.
