Westside Observer “Cannot Comprehend the Logic” of UCSF’s Sutro Plan

The West of Twin Peaks Central Council is one of San Francisco’s oldest neighborhood organizations. It’s actually a “club of clubs” – an umbrella organization comprising twenty west-side neighborhood groups. It meets every month to consider issues that concern its member organizations.

On June 24th, 2013, one of the issues they considered was Sutro Forest. They invited presentations from UCSF and from the San Francisco Forest Alliance/ SaveSutro, which were reported by The Westside Observer, a local newspaper.


Here’s that report. (It’s not online yet; we’ll provide a link when it is.)
