VICTORY: San Francisco Bay Waters Protected

SF_Bay_big

Developers in the San Francisco Bay area wanted to build a 12-story basketball arena and entertainment complex with 90,000 square feet of retail space over open bay waters on Piers 30-32. A bill in the California Senate would have allowed the developers to circumvent environmental regulatory processes for the San Francisco Bay area by giving sole authority to the Port of San Francisco—one of the major proponents of the development. That’s why Jamie Whitaker and the San Francisco Waterfront Alliance created a MoveOn Petition to the California Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water, asking them to stop the regulatory shortcuts in their tracks. The campaign was successful, and the Senate committee amended the bill to make sure new developments will be regulated by an independent agency.
