Sharp Park Suit Dismissed, Restoration Can Move Forward

I've only seen a PDF of Judge Susan Ilston's dismissal of the environmental group Wild Equity's suit alleging Endangered Species Act violations by the City and County of San Francisco, but this would appear to be a huge step forward for Alister MacKenzie's public gem in Pacifica.

There are still significant hurdles to a restoration, but Wild Equity's suit was the most problematic.

Good news! For a change. I wonder what Hawtree is up to these days?

Am amazing effort by the San Francisco Golf Alliance to organize and fund the effort to save the golf course.

Congratulations are in order! But as noted in the link below, there is still more fighting ahead.

Thank you to the SFGA and their tireless efforts to save Sharp Park!

This is very good news. That part about the 10yr estimated frog and snake death count being 1 of each made my day.

+1 for the MacKenzie's legacy, golfers and common sense. ZERO/NADA/NULA for the greenies....HA!

I just got finished reading the opinion. It is devastating to the plaintiffs' case and it will be difficult for them to ever win.
1) The judge found no evidence that the snake is there - thus there can be no taking.
2) There is undisputed evidence that the number of frogs on the site is growing despite its current use as a golf course. In total, the evidence suggests that the current practices at the size are "good for frogs."

Judge Ilston usually gets it right. No exception here.
