San Francisco’s earthquake readiness called into question 

After years of study and about $1 million, The City has pages and pages of recommendations on what to do to better prepare San Francisco for the next big quake, which is expected to come any year now.

Implementation of the recommendations, however, may not be so easy. How do you get private property owners to do the seismic upgrades on the thousands of soft-story buildings that are most vulnerable to earthquakes? And who pays for it all?

The so-called Community Action Plan for Seismic Safety will undergo its first hearing before the Board of Supervisors on Monday at its Land Use and Economic Development Committee. The hearing is at 1 pm, at City Hall, in room 263.
