We hope to see all Golden Gateway Tenants Association members (and those wishing to join GGTA) at the annual membership meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at L’Olivier Restaurant, 465 Davis Court.

This year, we’ll meet in the restaurant’s main dining room rather than the annex, so there should be more space for everyone to fit comfortably. We will have membership sign-up forms on site for anyone who is not a member but would like to join and attend the meeting. Please remember, you can also join online.

District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin will speak about current events at City Hall and issues expected to arise in 2017. Gateway resident and longtime activist Lee Radner will report on the State Lands Commission lawsuit, set for decision in the near future, that seeks to abolish our voter-approved height limits along the waterfront. 

Outgoing GGTA president Bill Hannan will summarize the proposed affordable housing development at 88 Broadway, the proposed Teatro ZinZanni hotel and dinner theater at Broadway and the Embarcadero, the condominiums under construction at Battery and Pacific, and the proposed hotel and condominiums at 447 Battery where Cort Furniture is now. He’ll also speak on security issues and ask for a volunteer to serve as security liaison.

GGTA nominating committee chair Desa Belyea will announce the slate of officers and directors for the coming year (please see below). Also, social chair Kim Breeden will report on our schedule of social events, which, thanks to energetic new board members, should be prolific and diverse this year.
