To the Editor:
If the City of San Francisco wants to save money, fire the Planning Department, or at least cut it by 50%. We don’t need the planning department. Nothing gets done fast enough to benefit from any of the plans that come out of the planning department. They are always solving yesterday’s problems, or I should say last decades’ problems. Put those people to work inspecting and processing plans so the property owners that have plans can realize them in a timely manner using their own money. The city needs at least a five year moratorium on arbitrary building restrictions. Removing obstacles from the building process is the fastest cheapest way for the city to put people back to work and improve the tax base.
