The wealthy SF neighborhood seeks historic status. YIMBYs say it’s an effort to block housing
Despite overwhelming opposition from housing advocates, a state commission voted unanimously on Friday to recommend San Francisco’s St. Francis Wood neighborhood for historic designation — a move that could allow the wealthy neighborhood to escape state law intended to encourage denser development.
A landmark designation would protect St. Francis Wood from SB9, the state’s housing law that allows two-unit housing and the subdivision of lots in areas zoned for single-family homes.
