The Board of Supervisors will vote tomorrow on legislation
that would limit new garages in Chinatown, North Beach and
After approving the legislation on first reading by a 7-2 vote on
February 9, the supervisors voted on February 23 to continue the measure until tomorrow. Supervisor Bevan Dufty, whose vote would be crucial to override a
potential veto from the Mayor, has wavered in his position on the legislation, saying the measure moved through the legislative
process too quickly for him and his constituents to give it a close enough look.
Garage addition companies, landlords and condo conversion
supporters are reportedly pressuring Dufty to vote down the measure,
while affordable housing, transit, pedestrian and bicycle advocates are
rallying behind the garage legislation.
