Yesterday, the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) unanimously certified the Warriors Environmental Impact Report and approved plans for the organization’s Event Center in Mission Bay! This decision would not have been made possible without the hard work and commitment of neighbors, small business owners, and community leaders of San Francisco. Pro-arena support was largely apparent at this hearing, as Warriors Ground SF members filed in to City Hall bright and early Tuesday morning to speak in favor of the project. In fact, the Warriors had so many pro-arena supporters that an overflow room down the hall had to be opened! One correspondent, Mark Matthews of NBC, noted that supporters of the project outnumbered naysayers by a count of 30 to 1.
As one supporter put it, “Honey, you couldn't come up with a better plan.”
Yesterday was a huge success; San Francisco is yet another step closer to becoming Warriors Ground.
