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.)

… AND AN OP ED
The Westside Observer’s Mitch Bull couldn’t “comprehend the logic of the proposal by UCSF to better ‘manage’ their section of the Sutro Forest.” Here’s his take on it:
He ends by saying, “The UCSF draft EIR elicited over 200 comments. I hope they listen.“
If anyone with half a brain should see through this. It’s more than about trees. What about everything the trees support? UCSF sees land!!!!!!!! not trees.
