AB 1273 (Ting): Tidelands and submerged lands: City and County of San Francisco: Pier 30-32: multipurpose venue.

May 29, 2013

AB 1274 By Phil Ting, Summary

(1)Under existing law (the Burton Act), the state granted certain lands to the City and County of San Francisco in trust for purposes of commerce, navigation, and fisheries, and subject to specified terms and conditions relating to the operation of the Port of San Francisco. Existing law (the McAteer-Petris Act) establishes the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and requires the commission to regulate fill and development within a specified area in San Francisco Bay. Existing law declares specified lands along the San Francisco waterfront to be free from the public trust for commerce, navigation, and fisheries, as provided, and authorizes the San Francisco Port Commission to approve a cruise ship terminal development, other maritime facilities, and commercial and office space on a specified area of the San Francisco waterfront. Existing law authorizes the State Lands Commission to convey to the City and County of San Francisco all of the rights, title, and interest held by the state in trust to specified lands along the waterfront, but prescribes terms and conditions for the use of those lands in connection with the cruise ship terminal development, as provided.

This bill would revise the above-described authorization for the conveyance of lands for use for a cruise ship terminal development to instead authorize the San Francisco Port Commission to approve a mixed-use development on the San Francisco waterfront at Pier 30-32, which would include a multipurpose venue, if specified conditions are met. The bill would authorize the State Lands Commission to convey to the City and County of San Francisco all of the rights, title, and interest held by the state in trust to specified lands along the waterfront, but would prescribe terms and conditions for the use of those lands in connection with a multipurpose venue, as described. The bill would make conforming changes with regard to the revised authorization.

(2)This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City and County of San Francisco with respect to the development of Pier 30-32.

    It seems that there are ethics laws, owned by the rich and therefore totally unenforced.
