FOGG Alert – May 15, 2017

State Lands Commission Lawsuit – 2nd Update

In our January 4, 2017 FOGG Alert we advised you that the State Lands Commission lawsuit concerning Proposition B would be heard on May 31, 2017, in Superior Court before Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos.

You may review the reasons for this lawsuit by the State Lands Commission on this website in the January 4, 2017 post.

The SLC, headed by Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, is challenging the voters of San Francisco, who voted overwhelmingly for Proposition B in June, 2014. 

Proposition B requires voter approval before a developer can exceed the present height limits on San Francisco Port waterfront properties.

The May 31, 2017 court hearing has been moved to Wednesday, June 28, 2017, at 2:00pm for the hearing on Cross-Motions for Summary Judgement.

FOGG looks forward to a positive decision by the Court that favors the City, and protects an open waterfront for everyone.

FOGG will keep you up to date if there are any further changes.
