Board of Supervisors

Board approves legislation meant to protect grocery stores

Changing a grocery store to some other use or demolishing a grocery store building will require a Planning Commission hearing, after the Board of Supervisors approved legislation aimed at keeping grocery stores in neighborhoods.

Supervisor Sean Elsbernd’s legislation requiring a conditional use permit to change the use of a grocery store was approved by the board in a 10-0 vote Tuesday, and is up for final approval Dec. 5. Elsbernd drafted the measure following the recent closure of an Alberstons on Alemany Boulevard and another on Clement Street.
