here’s the Board of Supervisors session about 900 Innes, April 14, 2007
Randy Shaw at 5:50
two tenants of Tenderloin Housing Clinic up next, one of whom is a paid tenant rep of THC bringing to 3 out of 4 paid people to show up in support of THC
Steve Collier of THC (attorney) at 22:00 who seems to confuse people by suggesting 900 Inness be moved when Randy Shaw never mentions that
Paul Hogarth of THC at 49:30 who gets a real rise out of Sophie Maxwell
And don’t miss Walter at 36:45 who sings it best
Something that might have been missed, is the two THC residents, Bob Bowers (9:40) and Byron Griffin (10:30) are currently residents of the Galvin apartments which, as you can see from the link, involves the exact same Joe Cassidy who donated 900 Innes to THC recently.
in terms of support of THC at this hearing, this was posted in all their buildings (on every floor in this one) in the days leading up to it. This is how they drum up support, from their Care not Cash buildings, largely publicly funded by the city of SF. Since it is publicly funded, I’m sure Shaw and THC wouldn’t have a problem with the India Basin Neighborhood Association posting their own flyer in the same buildings?
Also, as Randy Shaw says and commented on Curbed, when it was still Cassidy’s project it went from 170 to 208 units in 2007, so supposedly when 900 Innes gets preserved it will lose 12 units which would bring it down to 196, so this would be a loss in THC?
I detected at least three times people expressed confusion with the reasoning of THC staff. Welcome to the club, Bayview
Here’s a nice clip about 900 Innes
Preserving 900 Innes is a great thing, in my opinion, but I’ll bet the people of Bayview are going to have a bigger problem on their hands when they find out just how much extra police, fire, ambulance are going to be showing up in the new THC apartments every single day, if the past is any indication
