The Board of Supervisors is hearing a CEQA appeal of 2395 Sacramento Street. This is an adaptive reuse project in Pac Heights that will add 24 homes and bring new life to a historic medical library. Historic Preservation and Planning both approved this project and it's exactly the kind of smart infill we need that honors our past while making space for our future
Unfortunately, as is too often the case, people have organized against it over spurious concerns like wind corridors and other supposed impacts that will suddenly exist because of one new apartment building. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is once again being bent to stop some of the best housing we can build for our environment, dense urban infill in an amenity-rich neighborhood.
