On Monday, April 30, San Francisco supervisors will hold a hearing on the resolution to protect Clipper Cove, the city’s largest and best-protected cove. Come speak up for preserving public access to the San Francisco Bay and protecting the Bay’s fragile ecosystem!
Monday, April 30, 1:30 PM, San Francisco City Hall, Legislative Chamber, Room 250, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, San Francisco, CA 94102-4689.
Each year Clipper Cove at Treasure Island attracts several thousand families and youth who come to sail and boat in one of the Bay’s most scenic and protected locations, including 1,500 public school 4th and 5th graders who yearly participate in a sailing and science STEM program. However, the Cove has also attracted developers who propose to takeover the heart of the Cove to build a private luxury marina dedicated exclusively to very large yachts. Construction and maintenance dredging for the new marina would also imperil the Cove’s beds of eelgrass, a threatened and vitally important keystone species in the Bay’s ecosystem.
You can also support Clipper Cove by emailing/calling your supervisor and asking them to cosponsor the Clipper Cove planning resolution. You can find your Supervisor and their contact information here: http://sfbos.org/
