Eliminate SF's Conditional Use Requirement for Demolitions That Would Add New Units

Policy Letter

Current law allows the demolition of "demonstrably unaffordable" single-family homes without a conditional use authorization. SPUR supports the same treatment for these projects as for less valuable homes, but we suggest eliminating conditional use approvals for the demolition of non-historic single-family homes where additional units would be added post-demolition, regardless of their value.
