Sharp Park Golf Course: Peaceful Coexistence (Good Fences Make Good Neighbors)


So far "all's quiet on the western front," as they say. Have you seen the new fence on the levee (see photos above and below)? It will help keep dogs off the course and away from the frog and snake habitats. Also, signage has been installed around Laguna Salada deeming it a sensitive area and asking golfers to keep out. We also will re-mark the course with several new environmental areas. These will be considered hazard areas and golfers are not to enter under threat of being asked to leave. Several golf courses in the Bay Area have these areas on their courses and mostly the golfers respect these areas. With these changes, I'm sure that we will have a solution that all can live with.

Since Ms. Jana is not responding to you, Butch, I will further support the golf course remaining as such with this info from the Marin Independent Journal, revealing what happens to a small community/neighborhood when camping is allowed:
Of specific interest to Pacificans who do not support SAVING SHARP PARK GOLF COURSE, I extracted the following statements from the article for your consideration:

“Bolinas Beach will be closed to year-round camping as county supervisors Tuesday approved a ban aimed at promoting health and safety while curbing pollution, noise, fire danger, traffic and other ills.
Campers triggered health and safety concerns as the nearest public toilets are a quarter-mile away. Litter, noise, rowdy behavior, fireworks, campfires and parking congestion also were at issue.
Of specific import to our organization is that the ban will discourage homelessness and vagrancy, discourage sales and distribution of illegal drugs, free up parking for day users who contribute to our local economy and most importantly, create a safer environment for our community, especially.
Fifty-six percent of Bolinas residents who cast advisory ballots in a Bolinas Community Public Utility District election last November endorsed a year-round ban. The measure has also won support from the Bolinas Community Land Trust and the Bolinas Fire Protection District.”

I seem to remember many folks expressing the desire for the golf course to be reborn as a National Park with the fences knocked down and camping availability. Do Ms. Jana and others who are promoting this plan really think drunken, disruptive campers will respect the domain of the endangered species? Is this what we really want? I do hope Pacificans and Sharp Park neighbors in particular think carefully about promoting this agenda.

Ms. Jana, as I have asked you countless times, where do you live? If you live here in Pacifica, your argument about money is a loser. Where do you come up with $50 million for Sharp Park? Show us your numbers.

As for frogs and snakes voting for their habitat back, how many frogs and snakes lived here when it was sand dunes and salt ponds? ZERO!!!!!

"We will have a solution that all can live with."

Pacificans should have no problem living with this; it's San Francisco that is paying the bill, $5O million and counting, courtesy of the San Francisco taxpayer. Sounds good to me!

If wildlife could vote, it would vote for its habitat back. But it has no say in this!
