Hi Neighbors
This is not the end, but the fight to preserve the Corbett Slope has passed the biggest hurdle.  The 3 supervisors who sit on the Land Use Committee voted unanimously to support the transfer.
First, and foremost, I’d like to thank Supervisor Scott Wiener for sponsoring the transfer.  Without this the land would have languished with the Dept. of Real Estate until the time that the city would sell it, and market-rate monster homes would be built there.
Thanks so much to all of you who showed up at City Hall this afternoon to speak: Nancy Peoples, Michaeline Kiss, John and Leslie Koelsch, Janice Low, John Easterday, Janet Roubian, Aaron Chapman and Mark Ryser. (Hope I’m not forgetting someone.)
And HUGE thanks to Karla Nagy from KitchenGardenSF!
Next Tuesday this will go before the full board.  It is unlikely that the board will go against a unanimous decision by Land Use, but there could be fierce opposition by affordable housing advocates.  I’ll let you know the next steps.
But so far - congratulations to all of us!
- Gary
