Supervisor Kim's CEQA proposal

Jamie Whitaker of the Rincon Hills blog sends his newsletter, which includes this on CEQA reform:
South Beach/Rincon/Mission Bay Neighborhood Association Meeting on May 13th
Please mark your calendar to attend the next SBRMBNA meeting at the South Beach Harbor Services Building's Community Room on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 6 p.m. I believe that Supervisor Kim (or a representative) will present her CEQA appeal process legislation to neighbors for a good chunk of the meeting. Joshua Sabatini has a decent article summarizing the difference between Supervisor Kim's legislation and Supervisor Wiener's competing legislation on the matter.
The main differences are that Supervisor Kim's legislation provides more robust notifications to neighbors about what is being proposed for demolition and new construction in the neighborhood and that the clock starts ticking after the final approval for a project for citizens who spot errors by City employees or bad or inadequate information to appeal that final approval. Supervisor Wiener's legislation shuts the door after the first approval.
In South of Market, where we're being overwhelmed with the amount and large size of projects, Supervisor Kim's legislation is the way to go, but you can hear it for yourself from the Supervisor at this meeting!

"Democrats in Sacramento are still trying to gut CEQA"
