Planning Commission to mull doggy day care in Tenderloin

Following a brief break, the Planning Commission will meet this week, when it will consider an application to open a doggy day care center in the Tenderloin.

The commission, which approves, rejects and modifies applications to construct, demolish and change buildings, last held a regular Thursday meeting at City Hall on Aug. 12. It normally meets weekly.

One of the briefest hearings on the short agenda could be consideration of an application to open a day care facility for up to 60 dogs inside a long-abandoned bath-house at 130 Turk Street. 

The Planning Department has received six letters of support from neighbors and has not received any correspondence indicating that opposition to the project exists within the dense neighborhood, documents show. Planning staff recommended approval of the project.
