SF Examiner: Approval process for Balboa Reservoir project gets underway
Apr. 9, 2020 6:15 p.m.
The Balboa Reservoir project received the first approval on Thursday needed to rezone 17 acres of public land into housing.
At its first-ever virtual public meeting Thursday, the San Francisco Planning Commission unanimously approved the initiation of a General Plan Amendment for the 1,100-unit Balboa Reservoir project in Ingleside.
The vote rezones a parking lot for a proposed large mixed-use development adjacent to City College of San Francisco that has been under discussion for decades, and sets the stage for a public hearing scheduled to take place on or after April 30.
It remains unclear, however, whether that meeting will be held in person.
