Bisexual elected president of SF Planning Commission

Christina Olague, a bisexual woman, is once again president of the San Francisco Planning Commission. She had been serving as the oversight body’s vice chair and replaces Ron Miguel in the president post.

The commissioners made the decision at their meeting Thursday, January 27. It will be Olague’s second term as president; back in 2008 she also led the commission, which oversees development projects in the city.

On her Facebook page today (Friday, January 28) she thanked those who had left congratulatory messages and noted the commission will likely have a busy year ahead of it.

“Thanks for all the positive feedback ! I really appreciate it ! It will be an intense year for all of us !” wrote Olague, who was appointed by the supervisors to the planning body in 2004. Her current term expires in 2012.

Projects expected to seek the commissioners’ approval in 2011 include the remodel of  St. Luke’s Hospital in the Mission and California Pacific Medical Center’s plans for a new hospital on Van Ness Avenue in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood.

Other projects include the proposed Target on Masonic Avenue and a medical cannabis dispensary in the Castro, which will go before the commission next Thursday, February 3.
