SLOW THE ROLL!
PAUSE THE POWERS!
South San Francisco residents speak out loudly about the unbridled developments impacting every neighborhood in our City.
8-15-STORY DEVELOPMENT PLANNED FOR OLD MISSION/CHESTNUT/ECR
This 15-story development has been on the agenda of City officials for nearly a decade as the renderings below show. However, it was not until these past few weeks residents were awoken to the news that officials were set to choose between the two development firms that were the finalist from a panel of 12.
“The developer’s architecture is the primary concern for the council at this point” the City Manager said. The closed-door session that would follow that council meeting would be the appropriate time to discuss the financial aspects attached to either proposal. Is the vision of a 15-story monstrosity a done deal? If you’ve spoken to the City Manager you’d think so, but it is NOT.
Why haven’t our elected officials or staff enlightened the general public, the residents, of their intentions to offer 8-15-story high rises in the geographical center of our City? Did any of them share this vision with community groups, neighborhood get togethers, or in any way bring this to the Public’s mind?
There are growing groups of dissatisfied residents who say enough is enough and are working to bring voices to our elected officials, reminding them who they are presenting.
If the biotech industry vetoes high density in their backyard, why would residents, community members, want it in the center of ours?
When did we, the residents, sign onto this high rise, high density in the middle of our City? And why did you, our leaders, mislead us? And more important how do we ‘slow this roll and pause the powers’ allowing residents to direct those officials that are to represent us, the residents and voters of this City?
DO NOT LET THE CHARACTER OF OUR CITY BE SWALLOWED UP BY MASSIVE DEVELOPMENTS
WE ARE NOT SAN FRANCISCO, NOR DO WE WANT TO BE
