Dear Supervisor David Chiu:
We, the undersigned, call on you as the elected representative for North Beach and President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, to ask the Board of Supervisors to adopt an emergency resolution imposing a moratorium on all Central Subway-related construction and utility relocation work in North Beach until the anticipated two years of major disruptive impacts to local businesses and residents can be fully understood and addressed to the satisfaction of North Beach businesses and residents.
You have been a big supporter of the Central Subway Project. However, the Central Subway is not going to serve North Beach while the massive and constant disruptions that will be caused by two years of street closures and construction on Columbus Avenue next to Washington Square Park will cause devastating damage to the heart of this vibrant and vital neighborhood.
Muni plans to start this work imminently so please act now!
