Sutro Tower DTV Community Meeting MON June 23, 2008

June 12th, 2008


MONDAY, JUNE 23, 2008 – 7:00 PM

A community meeting is scheduled to discuss and answer questions on the federally mandated conversion to all digital television broadcasting in the United States. Sutro Tower will be making certain modifications to its broadcast facilities to accommodate this conversion.

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared and published by the Planning Department. A public hearing before the Planning Commission to take public comments on the DEIR is scheduled for June 26, 2008. Comments can also be submitted in writing to the Planning Department. The DEIR can be downloaded or read from the Planning Department web site. It is also available at the Planning Department Information Counter at 1660 Mission St.

We expect to have another community meeting after the date for final approval is scheduled.

As some of you may know, UCSF has been tentatively awarded a Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) grant to undertake fire mitigation activities within UCSF’s Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve.  The Reserve is about 61 acres and this project will cover about 8 acresThe project area is near the southwestern portion of the reserve, near Crestmont Avenue, Clarendon Avenue and Christopher Drive. We plan to hold a broader informational meeting in July or August to brief neighbors on the project but we want to have a focus group meeting with key stakeholders to brief you.
