City loses on "navigation center"



The lawsuit based on the city not following its own rules, surprisingly, won at least one round

Their view is that all of those approvals and commissions and EIRs are for the little people who don't matter - the city does what it pleases. In this case not.

Neighborhood News: Proposed Embarcadero Navigation Center
Recently a court said in its written order<> that Safe Embarcadero for All "has shown a likelihood of prevailing on the merits of one of its claims." That one claim is the primary one, that the City needs State Lands Commission approval to use Seawall Lot 330 for a Navigation Center. The court found the City's excuse for not seeking State Lands Commission approval "unpersuasive."

There is widespread support for continuing the litigation. Thanks to the pledges made by the community, SEFA is starting a fundraiser with a goal of raising $25,000 for the next phase of the litigation. If you would like to contribute please click here<>.

While the Association has chosen to stay impartial on the Embarcadero Navigation Center, the Board of Directors has decided to share information about the project including upcoming community meetings on the topic as well as information that has been received from fellow residents that can be found below.
