FOGG Open Letter – July 1, 2010

Please mark Thursday, July 8, 2010 on your calendar.  That is the date that the Planning Department states they will finally present their Northeast Embarcadero Study to the Planning Commission.

The meeting will be at a special time:  10:00am.  It will be held at City Hall, Commission Chambers, Room 400.

The Study can be read at this link:  NES Report

As presently scheduled the Planning Department hopes to present the Study to the Port Commission on Tuesday, July 13.

We are asking that as many friends & supporters attend the July 8th meeting and give testimony before the Commissioners.

At this meeting, our joint community cooperative effort that includes Friends of Golden Gateway (FOGG), Telegraph Hill Dwellers (THD), Golden Gateway Tenants Association (GGTA), and Chinatown community groups will be presenting our own Northeast Embarcadero Plan.

This formal response to the Planning Department’s Study, still in process, is a broader, more comprehensive and cooperative effort by residents of the community to create an active vibrant waterfront for all with better connections to Chinatown, North Beach and Telegraph Hill.

This community wide effort is being led by the professional staff of Asian Neighborhood Design (AND).

FOGG will send you further details early next week to remind you of this extremely important meeting.

Please plan on being there to show your support and give testimony before the Commissioners.  Everyone counts.

Thank you for your continued support and interest on behalf of better neighborhoods.
