Urgent: without support, Redwood City approval is expected mid-October with immediate construction, and hundreds evicted in January 2013.
Why action is needed:
*Pete's Harbor is a 60-year-old local landmark with public vistas and access to the nearby wetlands; it is open to the public with a restaurant and liveaboard marina community of hundreds, some of whom have lived there for decades.
*The People “Saved Pete’s Harbor” in the 70s & 80s for use as a harbor and marina, not upscale, luxury housing, and voted against a similar plan by the same out-of-state developer several years ago.
*The huge development project is on a fast track for City approval without sufficient public notice or involvement.
*The public trust leases and historic “Save Pete’s Harbor” legislation may be violated.
*An out-of-date, 10-year-old Environmental Impact Report is being used in lieu of, and bypassing, the current developing Inner Harbor Plan.
*The unique harbor community will disappear and the public's access to the state's waterways at Pete's Harbor may be lost if action doesn't take place NOW.
