On the Noe Valley SF Blog - I can't link the original LTTE that I wrote because it's not online (the Noe Valley Voice is online but always a bit behind).
I think perhaps Chris Daly has joined the plaza opposition. That can't be a bad sign.
This may or may not be a bit off topic. It relates to the proposed Noe St. plaza.
Did anyone read the letter from John Murphy pontificating and ranting on and on about the notion that the plaza is THE only solution, and that he is right. period. period.
Oh, and that we are "special" in our little valley. Fact is, we are no more "special" than Glen Park, or Bernal, or Twin Peaks, or Potrero Hill, etc. Each neighborhood is unique, with good and not so good qualities.
god, what a bunch of arrogant, self-centered bs. talk about feeling entitled.
As others have stated very professionally and eloquently, you don't just push a so called "trial plaza" on the neighborhood with the intent of circumventing legitimate and important planning and traffic studies. It's irresponsible and smacks of sweeping public due process under the rug.
Quite simply, the so called "trial plaza" is not, by any stretch of clever words a "bold experiment" as Mr. Murphy states.
It is a quick, sneaky attempt to close off a public street, paid for with public taxes, for the benefit of a few. Don't be mislead. Please continue to contact Bevan Dufty and Andres Power and express your opinion to oppose this project.
