City to decide on housing proposal

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco may soon give new meaning to the word “downsizing.”

Supervisors are set to vote on Tuesday on a proposed change to the city’s building code that would allow construction of among the tiniest apartments in the country.

Under the plan, new apartments could be as small as 220 square feet (a little more than double the size of some prison cells), including a kitchen, bathroom and closet, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Current regulations require the living room alone to be that size.
