San Francisco Needs a Better Plan
We oppose the way city authorities are handling the housing crisis.
We oppose any plans to substantially alter San Francisco’s residential neighborhoods and request that city authorities focus on solving these problems in a manner that does not displace people or continue to alter our landscape.
We want homes we can afford, jobs for San Francisco residents, and streets that move freely,
Therefore we request that you:
1. Stop approving expanded development in all our residential neighborhoods.
2. Stop amending City Planning Codes to incorporate more density into residential neighborhoods.
3. Enforce zoning laws that restrict development in residential neighborhoods.
Why is this important?
Signing this petition will let city authorities know you have had ENUF and why you are signing this petition. All comments go directly to the recipients.
City Hall wants to bring dense development into all our neighborhoods. No area of the city will be spared unless we stop them.
1. Dense development is coming to all our neighborhoods including the Marina, Cow Hollow, Richmond, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Western Addition, and the Sunset. Described and illustrated by charts and maps seen here. http://www.sf-planning.org/AHBP
2. You can say goodbye to private yards, garages and other single-family home amenities in the future San Francisco. If you don’t have your own now, you probably have friends who do.
3. This program was designed without any neighborhood groups or residents’ knowledge or involvement. The city authorities plan to approve it very soon with as little public notice as possible.
4. No notice was given to citizens who are signed up to get such notice; and no property owners have been mailed any notices about this new plan.
5. Citizens became aware of the program when this article was posted on BizJournals.com August 11, 2015.
6. No full Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is planned for his program. The EIR will rely on the 2014 Housing Element EIR, seen as “legally defensible.”
