Redevelopment Agency Commission President will step down

After serving for 12 years as a San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Commissioner, Ramon Romero announced Tuesday he will step down from the commission after its next meeting.

“It’s been a wonderful experience,” said Romero, who currently serves as the commission’s president, during a meeting. “It’s been very trying at times.”

The Oct. 20 commission meeting will be Romero’s last, he said.

Romero said he is stepping down from the commission because of time commitments in his law practice.
