NO WALL ON THE NE WATERFRONT

Both the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor have approved the upzoning of San Francisco’s waterfront for the 8 Washington Street luxury condominium project.

It is now time for our supporters to provide the financial support we need to defeat this ordinance.  We need to help pay for the expenses of putting on the ballot our Referendum to defeat the ill-conceived ordinance.

Your continuing donations are vital to this effort.

Checks should be made out to “NO WALL ON THE NE WATERFRONT COMMITTEE.”  They should be mailed to Friends of Golden Gateway, P. O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126.  FOGG will see that they are committed to the petition Referendum account.

The headquarters for the No Wall On The NE Waterfront is at 15 Columbus Avenue (at Montgomery) across the street from the Transamerica Pyramid.  If you have any questions about the referendum or petition drive you may call 415-894-7008.

FOGG knows that our supporters will continue to contribute and provide the needed support for securing a final and City wide positive decision that will assure our success.

PORT COMMISSION VIDEO – THE WALKOUT

As stated in our May 31, 2012 Alert, dozens of FOGG Supporters ‘took a walk’ at the Tuesday, May 29, 2012 SF Port Commission meeting when the Commissioners rubber stamped the 8 Washington Street/SWL351 luxury condominium project.

Janet Lautenberger presented our ‘YOU DO NOT LISTEN’ ultimatum as to why we are steadfastly united in opposition to the development and have plenty of fight left.

This video is now available for viewing at the ‘FOGG at the SF Port Commission’ link on this website.

FOGG will be asking for your help frequently in the next several weeks, as we have lots of things planned.  With your support, we can preserve our open recreation space.
