City officials endorse Treasure Island plan

A $1.2 billion plan to transform Treasure Island into a vibrant neighborhood centered around transit was endorsed late Wednesday night by two board committees and will come before the full Board of Supervisors for a vote Tuesday.

The plan would create a neighborhood of 13,500 residents with 6,000 housing units, a 300-acre park and a transit system.

The board meets Tuesday, at 2 p.m. at City Hall, Room 250.

Affordable housing urged for eastern neighborhoods

A resolution holding the Planning Department to very high standards for new zoning plans due out next year for The City’s eastern neighborhoods was unanimously approved by the Land Use and Economic Development Committee. Supervisor Sophie Maxwell drafted the resolution to ensure that high numbers of affordable housing units are built in areas such as the Mission, Potrero Hill, eastern South of Market and the central waterfront. The resolution also urges the department to analyze how the zoning would help keep families with children in The City. The full board will vote on the resolution Tuesday.

School district prepares to hire new principals

On Thursday, school district officials announced a new initiative to recruit new school administrators, bring up potential principals from within the district’s teaching staff and retain existing principals. According to district data, The City’s public schools will lose nearly one-third of their principals and assistant principals in the next five years through retirement and attrition. The SFUSD Leadership Initiative is a partnership between the district and several nonprofit education foundations, as well as the UC Berkeley Center for Urban School Leadership.
