Sorry for the lateness. There’s a lot going on. And there will be a lot going on at this meeting.
We start the evening with Board and Commission interviews, followed by a closed session regarding a lawsuit that has been filed against the City by San Francisco Baykeeper.
The general meeting starts with a couple of fun special orders. First up is recognizing National Arts and Humanities Month. This is followed by an annual event that’s always a good time – the annual Fire Safety Poster contest.
There’s a fair sized consent calendar, including a crime prevention grant and a Homeland Security grant, a pavement contract, and second reading of the Payday Lending Establishments ordinance. Staff is also recommending rejection of a bid for electric golf carts and putting it out for rebid.
Item 2 involves the frontage road issue along Mathilda in the Downtown, but staff is requesting it be continued so that the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission can weigh in.
Item 4 is the big one – consideration of annexing Butcher’s Corner and another chunk of land near Central Expressway. Staff is recommending annexing the Central Expressway parcel but leaving Butcher’s Corner un-annexed for the time being.
Item 5 involves the ordinance that Council requested for increasing project review in the Peery Park area until such time as the Peery Park Specific Plan is finished.
And item 6 is another big one – possibly reconfiguring Mary from Remington to Maude to support bike lanes. There are a lot of options, and this may involve removing lanes or parking, so it’s a big issue.
That’s about it.
