In a desperate attempt to ensure that all his colleagues are getting yelled at by their constituents as much as he is, Supervisor Matt Haney introduced an ordinance this week requiring every Supervisor district in the City to have a Navigation Center in the next 30 months.
The SF Chronicle Editorial Board praised the legislation, but noted: "It doesn’t specify a punishment for districts that fail to fulfill their commitment. When asked why, Haney said that he expects districts to follow this law as they would any others. 'I don’t know what a punishment would be,' he said. 'We depend on people to follow the law.'"
Supervisor Sandra Fewer's COPA legislation, which gives non-profits the right of first offer and first right of refusal on the sale of any multi-unit building in the City, passed unanimously at the Board of Supervisors this week.
Non-profits housing organizations hope to utilize the COPA legislation with the funds created by Mayor London Breed's $500m housing bond, on the ballot this November.
But before they can do that, they may have to go to the courts. The legislation is likely to be sued and faces various legal challenges.
