The event is being held by SPUR (the nonprofit Bay Area public policy organization), with the invitation reading, “Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island, situated in the heart of the San Francisco Bay, share a long history. From providing an anchor for the Bay Bridge to hosting the Golden Gate International Exposition and, subsequently, the US Navy, the islands have seen considerable change over the last century. But both are now undergoing a truly radical evolution. Geotechnical work, new streets, utilities and infrastructure are being completed, new freeway ramps and a new ferry landing are in place, and new housing, both market-rate and affordable, will be ready for occupancy in 2022. Join us to hear about Treasure Island’s past, the plan for its future and a progress update on the grand vision that San Francisco adopted over a decade ago.”

Guests include:

    FYI – The Bay Conservation Development Commission meeting on Thursday, April 7, 2022 starts at 1:00 p.m. This is relevant since the plan to charge a toll to visitors to the island to subsidize a ferry that is already siphoning $35M/annually in Regional Measure 3 money, is projected to operate in the red for at least seven (7) years and is of no use to windsurfers, wingers, SUP’ers, or anyone needing to move gear to enjoy the Bay violates both the BCDC development permit issued to TIDA and the State Lands Commission 2014 trust agreement. Latitude 38’s April 1 spoof article to charge vehicles being driven to get to your sailboat, unfortunately, was not a joke.
