Community development sees new oversight

The Board of Supervisors gave unanimous and final approval Tuesday to changes in how the citizens’ community development advisory committee functions.

The committee helps guide the city in how to spend federal dollars on development projects.

The new committee structure was proposed with the help of Supervisors Chris Daly and John Avalos following a consolidation between the Mayor’s Office of Housing and the city’s community development. The existing community development advisory committee of 17 members will be reduced to nine, each of whom will be appointed by the mayor, subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors.

The committee's first business will be to help the city put together a five-year plan on how to spend $200 million in federal funding.
