Governor Brown Signs Bill For Warriors Arena Development

A watered down version of Phil Ting’s Assembly Bill 1273 which could help clear the way for the proposed Warriors Arena to be built upon San Francisco’s Pier 30-32 was signed into law by Governor Brown on Friday.

The amended legislation will require the project to undergo CEQA review and gives the State Lands Commission the final say on whether the proposed project complies with the public trust doctrine governing waterfront development.

The Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) which had formally opposed the bill as it was originally drafted appears to be ok with the revised legislation.
