Today’s Land Use & Economic Development Committee Meeting on Supervisor Fiona Ma’s Resolution on Preserving Recreational Space (File #061493)

We have received many responses to our November 1st Open Letter, and want to share some of them with our supporters.

I have been a member of Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim (GGTSC) since moving to San Francisco ten years ago.  I have used it regularly both to swim and to play tennis over the years.  Additionally, my children have taken tennis lessons there and gone to summer camp as well.
