SWL 333 Development/March Calendar











SWL 333
- Advisory Panel of SWL 333 Development held an all day public workshop Saturday morning at Jelly's Cafe, across the street from SWL 337.
Meeting started at 9:30 a.m. in the morning and the place was jammed packed.
Four suitors gave their presentations:
Kenwood Investments Team
San Francisco Giants Team
Federal Development Team
Build Inc. Team
(go to San Francisco Port website and look for SWL337 - you will find complete submissions - very extensive with colored graphics.)
There was a handout out Exhibit A: SWL 337/Pier 48 RFQ Submittals which is 4 pages long which is an excellent presentation of facts.
Things were tense because there were so many people ready to give their presentation - sort of like before a sporting event begins. Lots of hours, lots of hard work, a very important project for San Francisco - worth a lot of money. High stakes.
Besides the developers, public relations people, there were also neighbors from South of Market and Potrero Hill. Jennifer Clary from San Francisco Tomorrow was in attendance along with the renowned neighborhood activist Toby Levine.
Questions from the audience: affordable housing percentages; parking, traffic, cooperating with Labor, environmental issues and financial stability. Some attendees brought up the issue of this area "capturing people" so they would not move on to other tourist areas (i.e. Pier 39 and other restaurant owners who are already in the area.)
Not knowing all the issues involved in such a huge undertaking I don't have a favorite, I would like to take parts of all presentations and come up with the best project. I like the idea of a large open green area, having walking areas right down to the water and the concept of a theatre or concert area and part of the area focusing on art.
This is only the beginning of a long, long process.

Rules on voting are complex. Go to www.cadem.org for latest information. Meeting open to public. Information could change:
Candidates need 70% of the votes cast to secure a place on the State Convention Consent Calendar. This is a public vote. A single roll call vote via signed written ballot, in the same form as the absentee ballot, shall be taken. If you cannot attend the conference in person, the VBM ballot in voter packet must be mailed or delivered only to the Regional Convener responsible for the district. VBM ballots which are late or are delivered to the wrong Regional Convener are not valid. Once received by the designated Regional Convener, a ballot, absentee or otherwise, may not be retracted, rescinded, or otherwise changed and shall be counted in the totals. Proxy voting is not allowed.
The names of the voters for each district will be read aloud and the conference secretary will read the vote cast in accordance with the signed vote-by-mail ballot that was received by the Regional Convener.
At the end of the roll call, the votes for each candidate and for "no endorsement" will be tallied.
Should a candidate receive the 70% of the vote, s/he will be recommended candidate for endorsement. Such recommendations will go on the Consent Calendar to be ratified at the State Convention on Sunday, March 30, 2008, at the San Jose Convention Center.
If no candidate receives the required 70%, the conference shall have taken the position of "no recommendation" for endorsement.
If one candidate received over 50% for a district, the race will go to the caucuses held during the March convention.
