Commission to hear grocery stores presentation

Supervisor Sean Elsbernd will give a presentation Monday on his proposed ordinance designed to curb the trend of grocery stores leaving neighborhoods. Elsbernd will make his presentation before The City's Small Business Commission. The law would remove grocery stores from The City’s definition of formula retail, those businesses with 11 or more locations. The City prohibits formula retail, or chain stores, in some neighborhoods and, in others, holds them to tougher zoning conditions. The Small Business Commission meets Monday at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall, Room 400.

Committee on violence to consider foot patrols

The Select Committee on Ending Gun and Gang Violence will take up several items focusing on crime in San Francisco on Monday.

The committee is also scheduled to consider an ordinance to establish a one-year pilot program to require foot patrols in crime-impacted areas of The City. The committee meets at 10 a.m. Monday in City Hall, Room 263.
