Sharp Park still a hot topic

The Park, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Committee joined the bandwagon to uphold the Sharp Park plan for restoration Tuesday evening by near-unanimously voting to keep the 18-hole course.

Fourteen out of 15 members at the meeting voted to endorse the Recreation and Park Department’s plan released in November to rehabilitate habitat at the western end of the property for two threatened species while it keeps the course open .

PROSAC members are nominated through the Recreation and Park Department and appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Their vote is consistent with the Board of Supervisors of San Mateo County and Pacifica City Council to keep the course open.

But the Center for Biological Diversity is the nonprofit that threatened to sue if The City doesn’t do something to save the animals, and they’re still not impressed.

And while the course sits in Pacifica, the park is governed by The City so it is ultimately up to the Board of Supervisors to decide how to keep the red-legged frogs and San Francisco garter snakes out of danger.
