    San Francisco Examiner: "Let’s build the Treasure Island community"

    Examiner Editorial

    It seems hard to believe that after a dozen tortuous years of paperwork, hearings and compromises, nobody except a few ultrapurist ecology groups and some Telegraph Hill residents fronted by former Supervisor Aaron Peskin noticed the $5.8 billion, 8,000-home Treasure Island development had an environmental impact report that was, in their words, “inadequate and incomplete.”

    But now an appeal has been filed. So creation of a new “green” 19,000-population community will not receive final approval from the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. That had seemed ready to happen during a few relieved moments Wednesday after the Budget and Finance Subcommittee, without any drama, approved Treasure Island’s financial plan and sent the project for a full board vote.

    The environmental report was already approved by the Planning Commission on April 21 in a contentious marathon hearing. A long line of speakers thoroughly debated the issue. Some glowingly portrayed Treasure Island’s potential to become a self-sustained ecotopia.

    I prefer to read a blog, plain and simple. Unless it’s a podcast or internet radio show that is interviewing a favorite blogger.
