FOGG ALERT – June 29, 2007

Hello FOGG Supporters!

We want to update you on what has happened since our last Open Letter and ask for your help again.

Senate Bill 815 sponsored by Senator Carole Migden will be heard before the California State Assembly Committee on Natural Resources this coming Monday, July 2, 2007.

This bill has been amended, and FOGG supports what has been changed. Seawall Lot 351, next to the Club, is not included in the bill, and will remain in the Public Trust. This is good news.

FOGG owes Senator Migden a debt of gratitude for her willingness to listen to the community and to act on their behalf. The amended bill also includes maintaining existing height and bulk limitations as of January 1, 2007 on those seawall lots located in the historic northeast waterfront district.

Senate Bill 815 as amended June 26, 2007 can be accessed by the link on this web site.

This is a critical time and we need your help. The Chair of the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources is Loni Hancock. We ask you to write, fax or email her as soon as you can.

Please tell Chair Hancock that you support SB 815 as amended. The amended bill will allow the SF Port to have a means to generate additional income and provide safeguards for those who live, work and spent their free time in the San Francisco northeast waterfront district.

Her mailing address is:

Loni Hancock
Chair, Assembly Committee on Natural Resources

She can be reached by phone in her State Capital Office at 916-319-2014 or in her District Office at 510-559-1406. Her fax number in the State Capital Office is 916-319-2192.

Her email address is disabled.

Please also send a copy to Senator Migden.

Her fax number is: 415-557-1252 and her email address is Senator.Migden@sen.ca.gov.

(FOGG would appreciate a copy of your email, by sending it to coaches@fogg.us .)

For our FOGG supporters who are also in the Barbary Coast Neighborhood Association (BCNA) or the Telegraph Hill Dwellers (THD), this legislation has significant meaning to the future of our waterfront. We thank both BCNA and THD for their hard work in bringing this issue forward, and we also give special thanks to San Francisco Tomorrow for their great contribution and support. This has truly been a united community effort. For the first time, the community has come together for a worthwhile cause.

If you would like to see more images of the proposed development that would be built on the Club, please click on ‘Images of Proposed Development.’ on this web site.

Also be advised that FOGG representatives will attend the hearing in Sacramento on Monday, July 2, 2007.
