San Francisco’s legislative body is holding a public hearing on the proposed development plan — which includes a new stadium for the San Francisco 49ers — that was recently rejected by the NFL team owners as unsatisfactory. Last week, 49er co-owner John York announced that he planned to build the team’s new stadium in Santa Clara. The plan’s developer, Lennar Corp., has been invited to come to the Board of Supervisors meeting to answer questions about elements of the plan, which York has said has too many infrastructure, public transportation and parking needs.
The hearing will be held at City Hall on Tuesday, at 2 p.m.
San Francisco to buy electric system from PG&E?
The Board of Supervisors Local Agency Formation may make the first official moves in a scheme to wrest San Francisco’s electrical power distribution system out of the hands of Pacific Gas and Electric on Friday. The commission’s agenda includes discussion of its intent to evaluate PG&E’s transmission and distribution system, “in order to acquire the system to provide long-term savings to electric ratepayers.”
The City’s third-graders are given free dictionaries
A free dictionary was provided to every third-grader in San Francisco’s public schools on Thursday, courtesy of the California Dictionary Project. Distributing the dictionaries were nearly 200 volunteers, recruited through San Francisco School Volunteers and SF Connect, a nonprofit jump-started by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
