On Monday, Feb 13 at 1 PM in the Supervisor’s Board Room at City Hall, the Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee is having an informational hearing to discuss the impacts off of large scale events in Golden Gate Park including Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Outside Lands, and Bay to Breakers. This is a follow-up hearing to those that were held in 2009 and 2010. This hearing promises to be well attended by neighborhood organizations who would like to either shut down or otherwise limit events like these. The Committee is chaired by Supervisor Eric Mar, and also includes Supervisors Scott Wiener and Malia Cohen.
Although there are no action items on the table, it is imperative that we as a community counter the NIMBY organizers with a coalition of fans that strongly supports these events and better represents the majority of the Bay Area residents and businesses who want music and entertainment to continue in Golden Gate Park. Golden Gate Park serves the whole city, not just the immediate neighbors.
The Land Use Committee Meeting will take place on Monday, Feb 13 at 1 PM in the Board of Supervisors Chambers. We have been told that the item will be scheduled towards the beginning, but it will likely be a long hearing.
