What are the arguments on both sides? Is a decision being made tonight? Any more info on this?

Man good luck. A similar thing happend in San Diego last year. The Zlac rowing club in Mission Bay started crying to the city about how they need to have Sail Bay all to themselves, even though they only use the water way from 5am-8am. Luckily the city decided to keep the mission bay rules the way the have been, which is fair to all users. <BR> <BR>I suggest highlighting the point that giving rowers this time frame is baised to only their group and is unfair to others who use the waterway as well. If the city wants to maintain a fair and PUBLIC waterway all users should be able to enjoy the activities anytime of the day.

Well the joke of the whole thing from what I saw at the last meeting is this. <BR> <BR>- City council wants their marina project passed. <BR>- City council holds meeting a local rowers association to discussed plans. <BR>- Rowers bitch about the city's plans taking away some of their rowing space in an already busy spot (makes it more dangerous and congested) <BR>- City council without suggestions from rowers comes up with plan to appease rowers by increasing non boating time in Marine Stadium <BR>- At meeting city council states this is not a discussion forum for the use of marine stadium (<font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> up!) <BR>- Three different rowing club leaders/presidents spoke up at meeting I was at saying they DON'T WANT the extra time in marine stadium, they just want the docks not to stick out any farther than they do now (which latest plan accomplishes). <BR>- Nothing accomplished

Don't just attend the meetings. Make sure your write your representatives and politicians and if you have a representative organization have them schedule meetings to discuss the groups concerns. <BR> <BR>It's good to get strong turn-outs to these public forums but it's often looked at as a obligation to the public and bitch session.
