Academy of Art back in the hot seat — again! 

Supervisor Sophie Maxwell plans to hold a hearing Monday before the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee on the Academy of Art’s effort, or lack thereof, in completing a required master plan.

“Despite its assurances that it will complete both required studies we have not seen much by way of progress by this school,” Maxwell said during a meeting. “Instead we know that the organization continues to operate in violation of a number of city codes and even continues to acquire property to expand its illegal operation throughout The City.”

“Given the negative effect that the university has had on The City’s affordable housing supply it may be time to discuss amendments to the jobs-housing nexus linkage fee that would address for-profit educational institutions.”
