Planning Commission to review proposed sit-lie law 

A controversial proposed anti-loitering law will be reviewed by the San Francisco Planning Commission.

The commission is scheduled on Thursday to discuss Mayor Gavin Newsom and Supervisor Michela Alito-Pier’s so-called "sit-lie" law.

The law would outlaw sitting or lying on sidewalks between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

The commission was tasked with comparing the proposed legislation with similar laws nationwide, analyzing how it would affect The City’s Pavement to Parks program and reviewing existing policies in San Francisco’s general plan.
