SF Board of Supervisors votes to rename Justin Herman Plaza

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The supervisors voted Tuesday to rename Justin Herman Plaza on the Embarcadero. It is currently named after the city's longtime redevelopment chief who is widely blamed for bulldozing the Western Addition.

The plaza sits across from the Ferry Building.

Although the board has no legal authority to change the name, every supervisor co-signed the resolution and voted in favor of it. It's now up to the city's recreation and park commission to make a final decision.
