As part of the project, riders are asked to fill out 10 questions online, including which Muni lines they ride and what improvements they would like to see. To take the survey go to http://www.sftep.com/.

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.
