The San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ Land Use & Economic Development Committee met today.

Item 4 on the agenda was a hearing on the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Draft Dog Policy, which has some dog owners rabid with dismay over proposed reductions in allowable off-leash areas for dogs within the federally supervised land.

The committee is made up of Supervisors Mar, Cohen, and Wiener, who has said he opposes the plan.
