Mitigate Baylands Impact on Candlestick Point

This petition had 153 supporters

Candlestick Preservation Association started this petition to City of Brisbane Planning Department and

Candlestick Point is one of the premier windsports destinations in the United States.  But after 30 years, the adjacent Baylands development threatens to block the wind and increase pollution.

Under current proposals, buildings could reach as tall as 200' above sea level and as close as nearly 500' from the water's edge.  The current upwind trash plant that generates incredible stench and litter is proposed to quadruple in size and handle additional noxious compost and other potentially hazardous waste.

Current environmental impact studies that claim the development will have no impact on Candlestick do not (1) measure the true recreational windsurfing area in use or (2) use a valid impact significance test that measures absolute post-impact change in the recreational resource availability.
