Save Dolores Heights started this petition to City and County of San Francisco and
  • The Board of Supervisors under Supervisor Rafael Mandelman's leadership voted on Dec 1, 2020 at the San Francisco Board of Supervisors Meeting to allow for yet another mega mansion to be built at 617 Sanchez Street and destroy the beautiful Dolores Heights historic neighborhood.  
  • Although mandated by law, the project blatantly ignores Racial and Social Equity, as well as  discrimination against the Black community.
    In 1913, African American Harvey Scott and his family moved into 617 Sanchez Street.
  • From 1917 – 1952,  617 Sanchez was owned by the Scott family, who raised two daughters in this house. The Scotts were the first and only African American family in the entire area to own a home and lived here for 39 years.
  • Public Views from the street which are protected for the San Francisco Citizens will be no more.  Instead of looking at the beautiful City, neighbors and people walking by will be seeing not one but two gray cement blocks side by side.
    The property is located in the LGBTQ Cultural District, set up by supervisor Mandelman to protect this historic and cultural neighborhood.
  • Senior citizen John Fusco, an openly gay man and small business owner, who served his country in the Coast Guard, lived in this house for over 43 years.  He could walk up the steep hill until his last year at 85, when he was married to a "mystery" woman and died 9 months after his marriage. The lady sold the house to an LLC to disguise the real owners, with the goal to tear down the home and build the mega mansion.  
  • This senior citizen abuse along with the Planning Department pushing the paper-work for builders needs to STOP. 
  • How can the same progressive Supervisors who create laws to protect our City ignore their own legislation including Slope Protection Ordinances that are applied only in rich neighborhoods such as Telegraph Hill and cater to big money and corporations to sell out their own neighborhoods?
  • We want our elected officials to work for the people of San Francisco, not for big builders and the super rich who want to tear down historic parts of the City and sell out our neighborhoods to the highest bidder.  
  • Please sign this petition and tell your friends.  Thank you!  #blacklivesmatter #LGBTQ
