Supervisor Wiener couldn't get a single vote from the Planning Commission in support of his attempt to undermine the public's right to appeal City Hall projects. From the Examiner:
Commissioners ultimately delayed a definitive opinion of the proposed law and voted 6-0---with Commissioner Rich Hillis absent---to recommend that Wiener gather more public opinion and clarify certain aspects of the proposal, such as what should be considered the “first discretionary permit” that would trigger the appeals period. Planning Commission staff compiled data showing that of thousands of permits and projects pursued, 48 appeals have been filed since the beginning of 2010.
Hillis was probably busy planning to screw up Fort Mason.
