The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday created a new “one-stop shop” to handle policies for marijuana businesses once recreational cannabis becomes legal. “We’ve had an industry that’s been on the margins of legality for a large part of its existence, and now the state is about to fully legalize adult use,” Sheehy said, noting that the new state law left many policy issues open for debate. “We have not done a good job of getting equity in the tech sector,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, who feared that the people who were most harmed by U.S. policies would be excluded from the cannabis business. The city budget included $700,000 to fund three Office of Cannabis positions — a manager, a principal analyst and a management assistant — along with overhead, website development and public outreach. Mayor Ed Lee also set aside $665,227 this year for five new Department of Public Health employees who would help oversee permitting for medical cannabis dispensaries. Separately, the board finally passed a set of comprehensive affordable housing laws that require developers of new market-rate projects to set aside a portion of their units — 18 percent for rentals and 20 percent for condominiums — for low-, moderate- and middle-income families. [...] a proposal to dilute a 2014 law mandating that companies beautify sidewalk utility boxes hit resistance at Tuesday’s meeting. The measure by Supervisor Malia Cohen would have allowed telecom and Internet service providers such as AT&T to pay fees instead of planting trees near the boxes or decorating them with murals. The owner move-in law, which had been the focus of months of debate between the moderate and progressive wings of the board, passed unanimously on a final vote.

- Utah's crowded Zion National Park may require reservations

[...] it's an option that Utah's Zion National Park is considering to manage an overwhelming surge of visitors to its sweeping red-rock vistas and canyons.National Park Service rangers struggle to cope with overcrowded tour buses and to alleviate damage to Zion's natural wonders that includes soil erosion and human waste near trails.People without reservations could pay an entrance fee and drive through the park, but they couldn't stop to hike or picnic.After a series of public meetings, Zion rangers are proposing an online reservation system, similar to the way campsites are reserved now.Making reservations to visit a public park could be frustrating, especially if tourists who travel across the country or from abroad to see Zion's spectacular vistas find themselves shut out if their plans change and they miss their time slot, said Darren Shipley, a video producer from Nashville, Tennessee who's visited Zion.Officials said vehicles spilling out of parking lots were a safety hazard and that throngs of tourists were trampling sensitive habitat.

- S.F. supervisors amend, then pass, affordable housing law
By Rachel Swan - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed two pieces of legislation intended to keep lower- and middle-class residents in the city, each requiring a hard-won compromise between the board’s moderate and progressive wings.The second law requires developers of large properties to make a portion of their units — 18 percent for rentals and 20 percent for condominiums — affordable, dividing them up among low-, moderate- and middle-income families.Months in the making, the law became a drawn-out piece of political theater at City Hall, as progressive Supervisors Aaron Peskin and Jane Kim haggled with their moderate counterparts, London Breed, Ahsha Safai and Katy Tang.“Everything we fought for with this legislation was to expand the definition of ‘affordable’ to include working people,” Safai said after the meeting.The board on Tuesday also approved a $120,000 settlement with an electrician who claimed he was sexually harassed by a fellow city employee while doing repairs at the Hall of Justice.
