Editor, Your “Short Cuts” on the April Boosters Zoom meeting, in which Flower Market representatives presented plans for relocating to Potrero Hill, was inaccurate and misleading. It certainly didn’t portray the same meeting I and many of my neighbors participated in.  Contrary to your description, participants expressed overwhelming support for moving the Flower Market to…

Editor, My question may be trivial in light of the current pandemic, but I wanted to reach out regarding the article about the proposal for a cannabis dispensary at 667 Mississippi Street (March 2020, “Residents Worry that Dogpatch May Become Dopepatch”).  The widely accepted east-west border between Dogpatch and Potrero Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, and…

Editor, Apropos of recent View articles about new residential developments, am I missing something?   I’d think that building all luxury housing will also help create affordable housing, since that’d free up the previous units from the new owners.  The previous units are probably not as luxurious.   Raymond ChuiPennsylvania Avenue Editor, The January issue…

Letters to the Editor – June 2018

Editor, Thanks for “Citizen Involvement Embedded in San Francisco’s Planning Process” in last month’s View.  Note that there’s another approval process that wasn’t covered in the article: Large Project Authorization (LPA), which is required in the Eastern Neighborhoods for bigger developments. It was a LPA for 88 Arkansas that the Potrero Boosters took to the San Francisco…

Editor, The February piece the View ran in its Short Cuts section about Tacolicious’s new no-straw initiative was great, but it didn’t tell the whole story. You state that we’ve replaced our plastic straws with paper ones. In actuality, we’ve eliminated plastic straws entirely and paper straws are now available only by request, barring a…

Editor, As I read Jason Bourne’s article about the cost of retaining commercial college counselors (“Families Retain “Counselors” to Negotiate Daunting College Application Processes,” July) and the quotes from an unnamed parent who felt that using these costly services exacerbated the divide between the haves and the have nots, I kept waiting to read a…

Editor, In response to “City Budget May Face Cliff,” in the March View, it’s unfortunate that future generations, unable to vote today, will bear the costs of many enacted pension programs, entitlements and boondoggle projects, requiring them to pay higher taxes and work later into their lives to pay for these promises. It’s the inmates…

Editor, Thank you, The Potrero View, for publishing a mix of viewpoints on the Pier 70 redevelopment project. Potrero Hill residents deserve to know the degree to which their views will be obstructed, as well as the demands Pier 70 will place on already overtaxed infrastructure. The articles create an opportunity to have a more…

Editor, As a member of the Driscoll’s family and the Bay Area farming community for more than three decades, it’s my responsibility to share facts about farmworker treatment in response to your story, “Driscoll’s Boycott Hampered by Poor Information” (December, 2016). A core aspect of Driscoll’s vision, one that I deeply believe in, is to…

Editor, I’m writing as an old Potrero Hill resident to advise View readers of a serendipitous event.  A month ago, my car was burglarized, right in my own driveway.  Anything of value was stolen, including the prescription sunglasses I need for driving.  A week or so later, I received a phone call from a local…

OP-ED University of California, San Francisco: Déjà Vu

in by

As the great, inimitable Yogi Berra once said, it’s dОjИ vu all over again. There are growing concerns among Dogpatch and Potrero Hill residents that the University of California, San Francisco is expanding outside Mission Bay.  This, along with the tenacious legal actions by UCSF backers to block the Warriors Arena from being developed on…
