SF Supervisors To Debate New Rules On Nudity

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – A plan to regulate public nudity in San Francisco is set to go before a Board of Supervisors’ committee.

The board’s Public Safety Committee will consider the proposal by Supervisor Scott Wiener at a hearing Thursday at City Hall.

Wiener wants nudists to cover up in restaurants. His proposal would also require them to put a cloth or other barrier under their bottoms if they take a seat in public.

Public nudity isn’t illegal in San Francisco. But Wiener said he is concerned about public health and sanitation and wants nudists to show basic courtesy to others.

Some nudists have said the proposal is unnecessary since putting down a towel is already etiquette among nudists.

Nudists are welcome to testify at Thursday’s hearing although under City Hall rules they would have to cover up.

    I’m no nudist but Wiener and the rest of the Board of Supervisors’ and it’s Public Safety Committee would benefit greatly by FIRST being “concerned about public health and sanitation” in the Streets of SF and amoungst the homeless and homeless camps.
