Formula Retail Study Releases Findings

The City Controller released its economic analysis on formula retail in San Francisco. While the study shows evidence that limiting formula retail will not expand the local economy, it remains unclear whether or not new regulation will have a net positive or negative impact on the local economy. The Planning Department is initiating its own study, and the Chamber continues to encourage lawmakers to take pause on any legislative action until that study can be completed. The Chamber continues to assist this effort by convening stakeholders to identify balanced policies that lead to successful and thriving neighborhood commercial districts.
