Having been dropped from the development plans last month, Piers 30-32 are back in play with respect to the America’s Cup. Under the latest proposal, the Port of San Francisco would invest up to $8 million to refurbish the piers and prepare them for use as the base for the five competing teams but would maintain control of the piers after the Cup.
The new proposal awaits a vote from San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors and a reaction from “Waterfront Watch,” the group which filed a lawsuit in an attempt to block, or at least delay, any race related development.
