The Western SoMa Plan goes to the Board of Supervisors for its first reading today. If approved, it will require a second reading next week and will then be sent on to the Mayor for his signature.
If minor amendments are offered, best case scenario is that there might be a delay of a couple weeks. Worst case scenario, if the amendments involve issues that were not covered in any of the options studied, is that they may require re-opening the EIR for further analysis which could amount to as much as a six month delay. Let’s all hope that any amendments are turned down.
I will be undergoing surgery at Kaiser Santa Clara at the same time this is all playing out. Corey Teague and the Planning Department staff and Supervisor Jane Kim will be representing the Plan. There will be no public comment but your attendance at the Board would be appreciated.
