NEW PLANNING COMMISSION HEARING DATE SET
FOGG is confirming that the SF Planning Commission Hearing on the 8 Washington/SWL351 proposed development is now scheduled for Thursday, March 22, 2012. The Hearing will begin at 10:00 am. It is at City Hall – Supervisors Legislative Chambers, Room 250.
We ask as many FOGG supporters as possible attend this very important meeting. We also ask you to be prepared to offer testimony on behalf of preserving our open recreational space.
Well, we have been here before in the past several months, but this time FOGG expects this hearing to take place.
A tip of our hat goes to our steely eyed attorney, Sue Hestor. The SF Planning Commission had to once again, cancel a hearing (now 4 times since December, 2011). Sue found a serious discrepancy in the required public notice that prevented the Commission from holding the March 8, 2012 hearing. Every delay is a plus for us and a real headache (financially and in achieving his ill-gotten ends) for Mr. Snellgrove and his supporters.
We owe Sue a deep debt of gratitude for her knowledge and experience in understanding the intricacies of the legal maze that we are up against. That is why it is so very important that FOGG receive your tax deductible donations to keep the momentum we have achieved moving ahead. FOGG thanks the many who have contributed to our success so far, but we really need additional funds to support and continue our efforts. This is not the time to slow down.
Please send your tax deductible donation to Friends of Golden Gateway, P.O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126. Please make your checks out to PDF/FOGG, and on the memo line write “tax deductible donation”.
Or you can donate online by clicking on the Donations to FOGG link on this website.
FOGG knows we can count on you to come through at this critical time.
This delay also gives those of you who have not written emails or letters of support additional time to send them in. You can review our TALKING POINTS at the link on this website. The the list of public officials to send your email of support to is in our Alert dated March 1, 2012 on this website.
We will update you on how FOGG will be preparing for the hearing in the coming days, and thanks to the many who have already written on our behalf.
Lastly, the Tuesday, March 13, 2012 SF Port Commission vote on the project has been postponed. There is no need to attend this hearing. This meeting is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 27, 2012.
