Discreationary Review
  Written by Rob Power

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on the extortionist and anti-growth
policy known as "discretionary

*"San Francisco is the only large city in the state that has discretionary
review," Planning Director John Rahaim said. *

*"There has been more than one instance we've heard of where it has been
used by neighbors to get money from a person or project sponsor," Rahaim
said. " 'Give me $20,000, and I won't file a DR' kind of thing."*

Truly, only in San Francisco.
