The Marina Community Association is urging residents in the district to write letters to their elected officials opposing a youth transitional house by a Monday deadline.
According to the neighborhood organizations website, residents oppose the Mayor's Office of Housing’s plan to convert the King Edward II Inn on the corner of Scott and Lombard streets in to a 25-unit transitional housing project for Transitional Age Youth because the proposal is “deeply flawed.”
The community association’s president says the project is being implemented without public input and that “financially, this effort makes little sense and suggests that there is more at stake than low-income housing.”
Members of the Marina Community Association have asked Mayor Gavin Newsom to withhold signing the $4.5 million loan from the office of housing in order to further examine the project.
The organization asks for supports and opponents of the project to make their voices heard before June 7, by emailing the Mayor’s office, the Mayor’s office of housing, the district’s Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier and the community association.
