Board of Supervisors: Vote on Transbay Transit Center Development Tax

10:29 PM PDT on September 7, 2014

Developers who are building towers around the Transbay Transit Center in SoMa are fighting to reduce a special property tax that will be levied on developments in the area. The biggest loser could be the downtown rail extension to bring Caltrain and California high-speed rail into the terminal, as funds for the regional rail hub and other long-term projects would disappear.

The Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on approval of the "Mello-Roos" development tax district as originally agreed to by developers. Read more here.

Members of the public can speak on the issue at the hearing or email their supervisors on the issue before the meeting.
