To save wildlife sometimes you need to hike to City Hall.
The date for the hearing is set for Nov 19. A week earlier than we expected! We hope you will join us to support this very important legislation to separate the Sharp Park plan from the Significant Natural Resource Areas Management Plan. The hearing is at San Francisco City Hall in Room 250 and starts at 1:00pm.
We need people to provide public comment in support of this legislation at the hearing!!! Each person will have about 1-2 minutes to speak. We will have talking points, but the best comments come from the heart. If you are too shy to give public comment we still need your support in the audience. Come to the hearing!!! This is a great opportunity for extra credit at school.
A bit of background about the legislation:
Sharp Park is a wetland owned by City of San Francisco, but it is located in San Mateo county. The park is home to two endangered species. The current management plan of the park endangers these imperiled species.
In 2005, San Francisco submitted its Significant Natural Resource Areas Management Plan for environmental review. At the time, Wild Equity staff, and others, requested that the City consider changes to make the plan for Sharp Park more environmentally and economically sustainable. The request was rejected. This new legislation would separate the Sharp Park redevelopment plan from the Significant Natural Resource Areas Management plan. This separation would allow for greater examination of and public input on the the future of Sharp Park.
We need your help! Please attend and tell the Board of Supervisors to VOTE YES!
