Happy New Year everyone-
Every time I drive or walk over the little bridge at Islais Creek, it baffles me how the foul
and offensive odors of a rendering plant would be allowed within smelling distance of
such a beautiful waterfront. Then again I think this each time I smell the sewage plant or
see the remnants of the pg&e power plant. Such a beautiful area with such noxious
smells-smells that would not be accepted in any other part of San Francisco and that is
why our neighborhood is home to them. Just because these businesses have become
Bayview-Hunters Point institutions, does not mean that acceptance is the best course of
action. Industry is one thing, harmful to your health and quality of life industry is another.
So phone on!
P.S. When are we all getting together for a coffee pow-wow again?
