The Board of Supervisors are set to meet on Tuesday afternoon, but the topic of the day will be the outcome of another meeting: a joint session of the Board of Supervisors and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority that will consider a car-free future for JFK Drive, a proposal that’s launched heated debate and high-dollar lobbying.

During its regular session, the board will consider the purchase of a 200-unit building for use as permanent supportive housing under Project Homekey, a state program funding long-term housing for those experiencing homelessness. They’re also expected to clear new affordable housing on Treasure Island, and extend time for considering a new law that will enable more people to appeal permits. 

More Project Homekey Deals

The board is expected to approve another property purchase to add to the city’s portfolio of permanent supportive housing. The proposed site at 333 12th Street would be the second project local developer Panoramic Interests has sold to the city under Project Homekey, which reimburses local governments for the purchase of residential hotels and apartment buildings for use as long-term housing for homeless individuals.

        The Board will also likely approve development and loan agreements for a 138-unit affordable housing project on Treasure Island

                  Democratizing Permit Appeals

                  Another housing-related milestone on the board’s agenda is legislation from District 7 Supervisor Myrna Melgar. The legislation would make commercial and residential leaseholders eligible signatories to appeal conditional use permits.
