Exchange of park, wasteland OK'd

The City could soon own all of Little Hollywood Park in the Bayview, but it would have to give Norcal Waste Systems a strip of land to expand its facilities in Potrero Hill.

Currently, Norcal Waste leases the 35,250 square feet of land at the southwest corner of Tocoloma and Lathrop avenues – a little more than half of Little Hollywood Park.

What the company wants is a 50-by-628-foot strip of Channel Street on the southwest side of Seventh Street adjacent to one of its facilities, which is too small to make into a highly recreational area, the Recreation and Park Department said.
In addition, Norcal Waste is offering The City $400,000. The offer was tossed around before, but did not get the go-ahead.

The Recreation and Park Commission decided this time before recommending the exchange to the Board of Supervisors that it would request that the $400,000 be given to the open-space fund specifically for creating more open space on eastern side of The City.
Neighbors in the area were sad to see their only strip of open space go, but were hopeful The City might find other ways to compensate for it with the $400,000.

Since the Rec and Park Commission approved the proposal, the Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the issue in December.
