If you missed it, yesterday the City announced that it was offering $270 million for the renovations necessary to host the next America’s Cup. It also announced that it had submitted its negotiated term sheet to the supes.

"Today is a big day for San Francisco’s America’s Cup Bid," said Kyri McClellan, project manager with the Mayor’s office. We’ve introduced the term sheet — our negotiated offer to the BMW ORACLE Team — at the Board of Supervisors and are enjoying strong support out of the gate from the Board — already six co-authors."

"The term sheet will be referred to the Board of Supervisor’s Land Use Committee and heard next Monday, October 4 at 1 p.m. at City Hall, Room 263," McClellan said. "This is your chance to show your support for bringing the 34th America’s Cup to the San Francisco Bay. Please come to the hearing and testify, and between now and then call, email and write the members of the Board of Supervisors to share your support. Here is a link to their contact information: ( When we have a meeting agenda we will forward that as well."
