Forum to consider City's economic plan 

The San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association is holding a forum at noon Tuesday to discuss the completed draft of The City’s Economic Development Plan.

Members of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development and the plan’s lead author, Ted Egan, will be on hand to describe the report’s key recommendations.

In 2004, San Francisco residents passed Proposition I, requiring The City to develop the Economic Development Plan.

The forum will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at SPUR, 312 Sutter St., Fifth Floor.

Federally funded food boxes may get board’s support

The Board of Supervisors will vote on a resolution Tuesday urging Congress to maintain the country’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which has provided low-income seniors monthly food boxes for more than two decades.

The Bush administration has proposed eliminating the program next year. In San Francisco, 9,600 low-income seniors receive food boxes. About 900 seniors in The City were cut from the program last year.

The board will meet at 2 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, Room 250.

Text-message alert system to be explained at meeting

The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management will give an informational presentation on The City’s emergency text-message alert system at the Port Commission’s regular meeting Tuesday.

Last year, Mayor Gavin Newsom announced the launch of AlertSF, a system that text messages information to registered users after a natural disaster.

The meeting will be held at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Port Commission Hearing Room at the Ferry Building, Second Floor.
