    Any word on the MTC vote re: Masonic?

  • I saw the link you tweeted. That meeting is tomorrow. The sense I have is that the approval isn’t in serious question. The MTC is just signing off on the locally-approved packages of One Bay Area Grant projects included in applications from the entire region. It’s such a late step in the process that Save Masonic folks are pretty wishful (or just have a poor understanding of the process) if they think there’s a pivotal decision they can influence.

    Ah, day off. And I had the same impression but wanted to make sure I cc’d Save Masonic on my letter of support.

    Gotta love SFGate comments. Made my day!

  • Regarding that fire code story – supes passed a law, but SFFD unilaterally removed that law from the books?

    Isn’t that kind of illegal?
