FOGG Alert – May 29, 2013


Allan Jacobs, long time member of our outdoor recreational center, and former Director of the SF Planning Department, wrote an excellent to the point editorial in the Tuesday, May 28, 2013 San Francisco Examiner on developer Simon Snellgrove’s effort to place an initiative on the November 5, 2013 San Francisco ballot.

You can read this editorial at the link provided in the NO WALL May 28, 2013 email below.

For those who could not attend the Saturday, May 25th NO WALL workshop on how to counter Mr. Snellgrove’s proposed ballot initiative, you have another opportunity to support our efforts.

A Campaign Mobilization will be held this Saturday, June 1, 2013 at NO WALL Headquarters, 15 Columbus Avenue in San Francisco beginning at 12:00 noon.  District Three Supervisor and Board President, David Chiu will help us kick off the Campaign.

FOGG knows that our supporters will continue to keep up the pressure to insure our success in winning November’s ballot referendum on height limits.

Subject: Former SF Planning Dept. Director Says “Read The Fine Print On 8 Washington”        

Please Read & Share.  There is a powerful Op-Ed piece about the fraudulent “8 Washington Street Special Use District Petition” in today’s San Francisco Examiner.  Professor Allan Jacobs, the former Director of the San Francisco Planning Department, took the time to analyze the 13,000 word petition to see whether the purported “parks, affordable housing, and open waterfront” are really in there.  Instead, he finds that the measure is poor ballot-box planning policy that would block the waterfront by raising waterfront height limits, reduce open space and recreation, and create exactly zero units of affordable housing on the site.  You can read Professor Jacobs’ op-ed by clicking here.

Join Supervisor David Chiu for a Campaign Mobilization This Saturday at 12 noon.  The petition for the 8 Washington counter-initiative is on the streets right now and we need your help to let voters know exactly what is hidden inside the petition they are being asked to sign.  Please join Supervisor David Chiu and the No Wall on the Waterfront Campaign this Saturday, June 1st at 12:00 noon at 15 Columbus Avenue for a Volunteer Training & Campaign Mobilization.  After the brief training, if you can volunteer for a few hours we will give you campaign literature and send you to key locations around the city where voters are being asked to sign the fraudulent 8 Washington petition.  Voters can make up their own minds whether to sign, but they deserve to know the facts.

Hope to see you this Saturday, June 1st at 12:00 noon at the No Wall on the Waterfront office at 15 Columbus Avenue.
