We have had intermittent difficulties with Earthlink, including email.
Please be patient if this happens again! We will endeavor to post updates on Facebook (unless, of course, all
of Earthlink goes out....)
and volunteer to
have fun with us at the
SF Ocean Edge - Beach Chalet table
Streets, Richmond District
Wear a fun costume - OR come as you are!
Some folks think we have given up - we haven't. Others don't even know
about this project! Let folks know what's going on and that you are still
going to protect Golden Gate Park! The more people we have,
the better our "presence."
11:00 a.m. to 1:00
p.m. (If we have confirmed volunteers, we can stay later.)
Clement Street near 6th Avenue (see map attached)
for: Our table and signs
Got a great costume? Wear it! It can be park-themed, environmental
or whatever tickles your fancy. Or come in regular wear. Just
come! (Be sure to dress in layers.)
Let us know that we will have the pleasure of your company: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
House Party a success!
About 30 folks attended the House Party for No on B and C. We received
an update on the Beach Chalet soccer fields project and background information on the CEQA lawsuit from Sierra Club Bay Chapter
President Arthur Feinstein. We then watched the new video on Beach Chalet produced by Rasa Gustaitis. (See our
video page for the link to this inspiring and beautiful film.)
After that we watched the No on B
and C and Yes on B TV ads -- the Yes on B ads provoked amused laughter from those in the know in our audience.
Mayor Art Agnos spoke eloquently about protecting the Bay and the Coast, and the importance of voting No on B and C.
you all for coming - and for bringing so much delicious food and drink!
Thank you all for coming
to the BEACH
CHALET CEQA TRIAL and
August 16 and August 21st, 2013
Over 30 of our supporters attended the August 16th trial and a small but
loyal group attended the follow-up hearing on August 21st. Thank you all for coming and for staying so many hours!
Both sides argued their case before Judge Teri Jackson. Both sides will
submit documents in mid-September. After that the judge will consider all of the arguments and issue her decision.
We don't have a date for her decision, but we will keep you posted

THE CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION HAS REJECTED YOUR APPEALS OF THE BEACH CHALET SOCCER COMPLEX!
On May 9th, the California Coastal Commission made an astonishing decision to ignore the Coastal Act.
This was despite the presence of over 60 of our supporters, who took the time off from work to travel to Marin, despite a
Staff Report recommending NO ARTIFICIAL TURF in Golden Gate Park, despite a report from the leading expert on the impacts
of night lighting detailing the negative effects that this project will have on wildlife, despite a report from the Chair
of the United States Advisory Council on Historic Preservation on the destruction of the naturalistic character of the western
end of Golden Gate Park, despite all of this -- the California Coastal Commission rejected over 200 appeals of the Beach
Chalet project. We will have more to say about this in the future.
