He visited Rincon Center and met with residents on July 23, 2022. He promised to contact the Mayor's Office of Housing about procedural irregularities in the BMR Program. He also plans to find out why a private club is being developed for the public park atop the Transbay Terminal. We pointed out that the city often cuts down trees and builds in public parks and greenbelts. We asked him to put a stop to these unfortunate abuses of the public's open space.
ASSEMBLYMAN MATT HANEY
He has visited Rincon Center and met with residents on several occasions. When he was a city supervisor, we asked his office to help get the gap filled in the Howard Street bike lane between Main and Beale streets. They were unresponsive. In the Assembly, he has co-sponsored legislation to allow bars and clubs to stay open until 4 AM. This is seen as contrary to the quality-of-life of residents in the city.
STATE SENATOR SCOTT WIENER
The senator's office will assist constituents having trouble with the state unemployment department (EDD). We have also asked the senator to assist the building's BMR tenants with maintaining the viability of the program. He introduced legislation in the Senate to allow bars and clubs to stay open until 4 AM. This puts the interests of bar owners ahead of residents.
As a city supervisor, Tom Ammiano consistently came to the aid of Rincon Center tenants. He and his staff called and attended two meetings on our behalf with city officials. Mr. Ammiano wrote one of Rincon's owners reminding him that "to be successful, participants in the City's BMR programs must know that their rents are actually below market levels."
