SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) A long-planned police substation along San Francisco's blighted Sixth Street will open some time next month, Mayor Ed Lee said today.
Supervisor Jane Kim asked Lee about the substation during his monthly voter-mandated question-and-answer session with the city's Board of Supervisors.
The site, located in Kim's district at 72 Sixth St. between Jessie and Mission streets, has long been slated for the substation but plans stalled early in 2012 when a new state law went into effect ordering the dissolution of local redevelopment agencies.
San Francisco's redevelopment agency was overseeing the project, prompting officials to alter their plans and instead pay $775,000 out of the city's general fund for renovations to the building.
The substation had tentatively been set to open Dec. 1 but is now scheduled for opening some time in February with construction ending by the end of this month, Lee said.
