FOGG Alert – October 5, 2014


FOGG is advising you of a very important meeting on Thursday, October 9, 2014 at City Hall in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors Government Audit and Oversight Committee will be meeting at 11:00am, in City Hall Committee Room 263.

We ask that our friends and supporters make every effort to attend.

The Committee will be hearing testimony by FOGG’s attorney, Sue Hestor, covering the Planned Unit Development (PUD) issue that covers the development of the Gateway Commons and our outdoor recreational center – The Bay Club at The Gateway.

The Agenda can be read at this link. Agenda

We are first on the AgendaHearing on the status of the 8 Washington site including but not limited to questions about location’s zoning history.”

Our District 3 Supervisor and Board President David Chiu is the sponsor of this Agenda Item.

The members of the Government Audit and Oversight Committee are London Breed (Chair), Katy Tang, and David Chiu.

FOGG first reported on this important issue in our July 12, 2014 FOGG Alert.

The Alert can be read on this website.

This Alert explains in detail why FOGG is seeking action by the SF Supervisors and Planning Department to redress the serious errors that have been made by ignoring the original PUD and its approval by City Agencies.

While the PUD does not directly affect the SF Port’s Seawall Lot 351, and their planned development of this lot, the impact of maintaining the rightfully and original PUD ruling will (and should) have an important impact on the future development of SWL351.

FOGG and its many community supporters, as we have stated before, ask that the SF Port will endorse the Asian Neighborhood Design’s (AND) Community Vision for San Francisco’s Northeast Waterfront.

The AND Vision can be read at the Page link on this website.

Please see for yourself how developing SWL351 as a major bicycle/sports center (including a corner café), similar to Chicago’s successful Millennium Parks Bicycle Center will better serve our community. The SF Port should be working with us on making this something we can all support.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, October 9th at City Hall.
