Tell Mayor Lee You Support Restoring Sharp Park!!!
In 2011, San Francisco took an important step towards a healthy and sustainable future for Sharp Park. The Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance that directs the City to negotiate a long-term management agreement for the property with the National Park Service, creating a new, sustainable public park on land that has been occupied by a money-losing, endangered species-killing golf course for decades.
But when the legislation went before the Mayor, he vetoed the ordinance without even meeting with the champions of this cause. We need all our supporters to contact the Mayor and chastise him for this veto, and tell him you support restoring Sharp Park. Call Mayor Ed Lee now at 415-554-6141, or scroll down and use the form below to send him an email and tell him so today!
It was obvious to all present at the Board hearing that our campaign is driven by a diverse coalition of college students, families, and long-time San Francisco residents who want to make our City sustainable for everyone. On the other side? Golf purists who’ve already taken millions from City coffers to create golf courses, and Chambers of Commerce CEO’s who want to use a bailed-out golf course to encourage more development on California’s coast.
