    SPUR has been pushing the Central Corridor plan for years, now it isn’t good enough? Did I miss something?

    Guess this is how we will pay for the Central Subway. http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/2013/05/scott_wiener_muni_surcharge.php

    Planning published the draft plan only a month ago and now SPUR is responding to that draft (which they had some influence over, but didn’t write themselves.) City Planning is being pulled in two different directions: the vision of SPUR (taller, denser, walkable, etc.) and the demands of local residents (leave us alone.) The result is a bipolar plan with a patchwork of height zones that attempt to please both sides.
