City agency may vote on Civic Center district

The Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee postponed a key vote on whether it would support formation of an improvement district for the Civic Center area, which would assesses a fee on property owners in the area.

The committee said it had concerns about using its influence, since there are a number of public buildings in the proposed district, to force private property owners to pay the fee even if they don’t support it. Instead, the committee decided to wait until the votes are in from the private property owners.

Thursday at 4:30 p.m., the Library Commission is scheduled to vote on a resolution that would endorse the proposed Civic Center Community Benefit District and “urging the Board of Supervisors to approve city participation.”

The commission meets in the Koret Auditorium, Main Library, lower level.
