Judge rules contested Sunset District affordable housing project can proceed
A seven-story affordable housing complex in San Francisco's Sunset District will be allowed to go forward despite a neighborhood association's lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order that would have suspended pre-development work on the...
Mid-Sunset Neighborhood Association President Flo Kimmerling said the lawsuit was necessary because the developer and the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development — which is in contract to buy the site for $9 million — refused to consider a scaled-back, neighborhood-supported alternative that would be five-and-half floors instead of seven and 80 units instead of 91.
“We had two choices: lay down and die or go to court,” said Kimmerling. “We picked the latter.”
SOMEONE THINK OF THE ZUCCHINI
Supervisor Gordon Mar, who represents the Sunset, has endorsed the downsized neighborhood alternative. He declined to comment on the lawsuit.
Real talk, this really stings. I went to a meeting in support of a project early on, and Mar was present. He implied his support for the full development at the time, but it seems as if his words were nothing.
This is great. We need more housing. There are other lots around me in the Sunset that could support development too.
Excellent! We need much much more affordable and low income housing everywhere in SF.
I want to post something witty but I'm too happy to think right now!
