From taxes to zoning to public spending, the decisions made by your San Francisco Board of Supervisors can have a major impact on your life. So we've scoured the upcoming agenda for the next meeting on Sept. 10 to bring you this report on what’s scheduled in local city government. Read on to find out what’s up for discussion and voting.  

One major item on the agenda is a resolution to issue revenue bonds for up to $23.5 million, to finance construction of a 55-unit multifamily rental housing project to be called the Bernal Gateway Apartments.

The Board of Supervisors is also set to consider a resolution that would condemn the attempted assassination of San Francisco native and U.S. citizen Brandon Lee in the Philippines by suspected elements of the 54th Infantry Battalion of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. The resolution would urge the city's federal representatives to initiate a congressional investigation.

Other agenda items include:

  • A resolution to sell up to $92.7 million in taxable affordable housing General Obligation bonds.
  • A resolution to allow temporary long-term parking and overnight camping in vehicles, as well as ancillary uses (including administrative offices, restrooms, showering or bathing facilities, kitchen or other food preparation facilities, and eating areas) at 2340 San Jose Ave.
  • A resolution to sell up to $3.1 million in Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks general obligation bonds.
