‘Westside Observer’ Covers Crestmont Controversy
The Westside Observer had a detailed article about the planned San Francisco Overlook project. This is the 34-unit development planned for the end of Crestmont, a long winding road that has no other exit. (Click on the picture below to go to the Westside Observer website.)
I’ve been following the story for some years now, but it seemed like it was mainly being watched by a bunch of blogs. Now there’s a detailed story out there.
Of course, our neighborhood doesn’t need to read about the potential downsides of a large development in this location. We can see for ourselves. Just a quick walk through the area shows the risks: steep and unstable terrain; narrow roads where it’s a real possibility that emergency vehicles can’t get through; more traffic on a road where people walk and children play.
The hearing at City Hall is today, 7 March 2013, starting at 12 noon. Crestmont Preservation is calling on neighbors to turn out and make their presence felt. All the details are HERE.
