FOGG Alert – October 21, 2015

State Lands Commission Throws in Towel!!

We have more good news for you concerning FOGG’s efforts to preserve our neighborhood open recreational center.

The State Lands Commission met in San Diego last Friday, October 16, 2015 to discuss the appeal they lost in the 1st District Court of Appeal on September 17, 2015.

The deputy attorney general handling the case advised attorney Susan Brandt -Hawley that SLC (led by Chairman Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom), decided NOT to seek review by the California Supreme Court.

Great job Susan!!

As you may recall from our FOGG Alert of September 21, 2015, the 1st District Court of Appeal upheld the judgement of the SF Superior Court that SLC cannot overturn the voters of San Francisco and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and to set aside “its unlawful approval of the transfer of public-trust property known as Seawall Lot 351 to the Port of San Francisco.”

Our ‘Defend Our Waterfront’ allies together with FOGG wins another one thanks to Susan, and preserves our outdoor recreational center (Bay Club – The Gateway).

Once again FOGG calls upon the SF Port to redirect their efforts together with the many community organizations in developing SWL 351 that will open itself to public activities.

We offer the Asian Neighborhood Design (AND) Vision Plan as a positive alternative to the proposed, now deceased, high rise luxury condominiums for the very few.

There couldn’t be a more opportune time for all parties to meet and move forward.

FOGG appreciates the SF Port’s new Waterfront Vision Workshop initiative. Our supporters are actively participating. We will keep you updated on the progress.

Let’s get moving!
