Good news Nob Hill is staying. Since they are, maybe they can finally remove the errant bike wheel attached to their bike rack by the driveway.

Frankly, I don't understand how these rumors start. That said, I'm incredibly pleased that those shopping centers will not be closing.

"If a property owner becomes interested in redeveloping a village center site sometime in the future, updating the zoning ordinance today actually gives the city more control over what that development can look like, Ramirez explained."

I don't understand this statement at all. I'm extremely skeptical. They are loosening the zoning rules to accommodate mixed-use housing rather than just commercial use. But somehow that gives the city MORE control. Explain it to me like I'm five.
