Please clear your calendars and be willing to speak at this important meeting scheduled for Monday May 9th. This is the date of the hearing at SF City Hall. At this time we are uncertain the exact hour this item will come up and we will continue to update so please keep a watch on our FB page
The opposition to access reform will be there.
Now is the time to get organized to create a better future for our children on the SF Peninsula.
If you can represent the interests of residents rights to access our Watershed in an "official" capacity, please let us know. For example if you are a business owner, elected official, public figure, or trail group organizer, or an environmentalist, your help is imperative that you email the SFBOS on letterhead (pdf) and relay the importance of this resolution passing.
If you represent trail users in any capacity, or an environmentalist interest it is imperative that you email the SFPUC and asked to be added to their list of stakeholders, which now is almost entirely comprised of our opposition.
I would like to express my support for improved public access to the San Francisco Public Utility Commission's Crystal Springs Watershed. This issue is very important to me. The public has been closed off from the Watersheds scenic, historical and recreational experiences for too long. Please do what you can to help achieve access reform
I support the resolution to grant responsible access to the SFPUC watershed lands over existing service road such as Fifield-Cahill Ridge, Pilarcitos Road, Whiting Ridge, and to historical sites for the following reasons:
-There is no science-based reasons behind not granting access to the SFPUC lands from a water supply perspective nor a public safety perspective.
-The trails in question are currently heavily used by SFPUC trucks as well as private parties such as cell phone operators, antenna owners as well as other private owners. Why not grant the public access to their lands.
-Local elected official such as SF Supervisors John Avalos, Scott Wiener & David Campos and San Mateo Supervisors David Pine and Don Horsley support access reform
-Docent programs like the one in place fail when one looks at the social justice issues around how they are being implemented. for example working people can’t use the lands due to the hours that the docent programs operate.
Thank you for your public service.
