Businesses in western SOMA up for debate

What kind of businesses should pop up in the western SOMA neighborhood? Zoning discussions are heating up about what to prohibit and what to allow – from bars, medical marijuana dispensaries, large retail stores and movie theaters.

On Thursday, residents and city officials will discuss the matter at the Business and Land Use Committee Meeting. <br />
The Western SOMA Community Plan, hailed by some residents for maintaining the neighborhood’s historic qualities and criticized by San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association for its limited scale on buildings, is currently undergoing environmental impact report analysis.

Thursday’s discussion will take place at 6 p.m. in Room 421 of City Hall.
