Board of supervisors

Board to vote on ordinance protecting rec centers

Legislation comes before the board Tuesday that would require developments that would impact large recreational facilities to undergo a hearing before the Planning Department. Former District 4 Supervisor Fiona Ma had drafted the legislation about a month before she vacated her seat on Dec. 7 to serve as 12th District assemblywoman. The measure is aimed at protecting recreational facilities, which some say are vanishing to make way for housing.

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday, at 2 p.m., at City Hall, Room 250.
