Put Brakes On Luxury Condos Built On Public Land!

Budget & Finance Committee Meeting
Thursday, March 15, 10:00 am
City Hall Room 250

Under Chapter 29 of the City’s Administrative Code, the SF Board of Supervisors must deem a project fiscally feasible in order to proceed. The Balboa Reservoir Project will be considered at this meeting.

Please call, email the Supervisors and/or show up at this meeting!
Ensure that they do not approve the fiscal feasibility of the Balboa Reservoir Project.

The essential message:
The elimination of parking at CCSF due to the Balboa Reservoir Project will cause grave and permanent damage to CCSF and hence to San Francisco. This damage would affect the college’s economic value to the city: such losses would exceed the modest benefits the developer claims for the project. Therefore, Chapter 29 of the Administrative Code requires that the project be halted until the parking situation is resolved.

Talking points:
•    According to the September 2013 report of the Budget and Legislative Analyst, the City determined that the economic value CCSF gives to the City exceeded $311 million. Now that City College has survived the accreditation attack and enrollment is growing, the value is likely now exceeds $400 million.
•    The current plans for the Balboa Reservoir will eliminate 2,000 parking spaces which is unacceptable for a commuter school. Adaquate parking is crucial to its future. A reliable analysis of the damage this will cause to CCSF is needed since this damage may result in a loss in the value that CCSF gives to San Francisco.
•    CCSF’s own Facilities Committee – an official part of the college’s shared governance structure with members from all constituencies – unanimously passed a resolution urging that CCSF “re-examine the entire concept of the Balboa Reservoir Project because of its public significance, and the grave and permanent damage that would be done to City College of San Francisco….”
•    The Facilities Committee further recommended a parking study to determine how to best protect CCSF.
•    Even AvalonBay, the lead developer of the Balboa Reservoir Project, and the City have stated publicly that the project cannot continue unless a resolution is reached on alternative parking.

Not one inch of public land should go to private interests!
