SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco planners approved a plan to add thousands of homes to San Francisco's East Side on Thursday. The new zoning scheme still needs final approval from the Board of Supervisors.

Former industrial zones that make up a quarter of the city's land would be rezoned to allow affordable housing to be built.

It requires developers of any new housing to rent or sell at least 15 percent of their homes at affordable levels.
