Mayor Breed is working on a huge expansion of S.F.'s homeless housing. How much will it help?

Mayor Breed is working on a huge expansion of S.F.'s homeless housing. How much will it help?

Felecia Smith doesn’t want to grow old in the room she calls home in the Tenderloin. She dreams of one day having her own apartment in a safe neighborhood — a long shot in San Francisco’s impossibly pricey housing market.Smith, 59, pays nearly half her income to live in one of the city’s permanent supportive housing units, which help the formerly homeless. While she’s thankful for the roof over her head, she said the neighborhood she’s loved for four decades is becoming untenable, with drug dealers harassing her on the sidewalk.“It’s getting pretty dangerous,” said Smith, who has bipolar...

S.F's budget will be saved from painful cuts thanks to federal stimulus. What about in the next one?

S.F's budget will be saved from painful cuts thanks to federal stimulus. What about in the next one?

The federal stimulus package likely to be signed by President Biden this week will erase the majority of San Francisco’s projected $650 million budget deficit over the next two years, saving City Hall from having to make painful service cuts and layoffs — for now.While the federal stimulus is a boon for the economy in the short term, it will not solve all of the city’s financial woes. San Francisco’s ultimate recovery heavily depends on how quickly parts of the local economy bounce back, from tourists visiting the city to employees returning to downtown offices.Without a substantial...

Free summer camp for all young S.F. public school students? Costly city proposal could help families

Free summer camp for all young S.F. public school students? Costly city proposal could help families

After another school year upended by the pandemic, a group of San Francisco supervisors wants to make summer camp free for all public elementary school students — regardless of their family’s income level.Supervisors Connie Chan, Hillary Ronen, Myrna Melgar and Matt Haney plan to propose a $15 million budget supplemental at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. But even they acknowledge that will not be enough money to cover the costly program, and they’ll likely need philanthropists or other city funding to make it a reality.“We’re going to call everyone to join us and make this happen,”...

'We are flying blind': Bay Area politicians say they're in the dark about vaccine rollout

Photo: Yalonda M. James / The ChronicleAs residents wonder where and when they can get vaccinated, some Bay Area officials are getting inundated with calls and emails from constituents, many of whom are angry at the slow rollout and confusion about the process.But local politicians said their hands are largely tied as they wait for the state health department and private providers to give them more information on how many doses they have — and how quickly they can distribute them to eligible populations.California has fallen woefully behind almost every other state in its pace of...

Exclusive: S.F. rejects Warriors' plan to allow fans, for now, as coronavirus cases surge

Exclusive: S.F. rejects Warriors' plan to allow fans, for now, as coronavirus cases surge

San Francisco’s Department of Public Health rejected the Warriors’ ambitious plan to bring back more than 9,000 spectators to games during the upcoming NBA season, while pledging to work with the team to host fans at Chase Center once the coronavirus pandemic eases.Health Officer Tomás Aragón’s letter to the Warriors, a copy of which was obtained by The Chronicle, raises the possibility of allowing 25% capacity (about 4,500 fans) if San Francisco reaches California’s yellow tier of coronavirus case rates. The county recently moved two levels from the yellow tier to the more restrictive red...

S.F.'s new Caren Act makes false, racially charged complaints illegal

S.F.'s new Caren Act makes false, racially charged complaints illegal

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the Caren Act Tuesday — a new law that makes it illegal for someone to call 911 with a false, racially charged complaint. The name of the law — Caution Against Racially and Exploitative Non-Emergencies — is a play on the internet meme of “Karens,” which represent entitled white women complaining about people of color. The law, which must pass a second vote next week, would allow people to sue the 911 caller in civil court if they felt harassed or discriminated against by the action. The legislation comes amid a national reckoning...

Opponents of S.F. real estate tax measure raise over $2 million. Here's why

Opponents have raised more than $2 million to defeat a proposal to double San Francisco’s real estate transfer tax on sales of $10 million or more. It’s the biggest chunk of money spent on any San Francisco race this year, making Proposition I one of the most contentious local measures on November’s ballot.Voters likely will begin seeing an onslaught of mailers, door hangers, TV commercials and social media ads against the measure Thursday. It’s an all-out campaign largely organized by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce — which often opposes new taxes — to defeat a measure that critics...
