Notice is hereby given to the general public that the ERO intends to hold a PUBLIC HEARING on the below item on Thursday, March 11, 2021, beginning at 9:00 am. Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the ERO will conduct this hearing remotely. 

2019-022126ENV: Golden Gate Park Music Concourse 150th Anniversary Celebration - Appeal of a Determination That Change in Exempt Project Is Not a Substantial Modification. The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department proposes a four-year operational extension of the observation wheel. The wheel was scheduled to open April 4, 2020 and be removed in March of 2021; however, Covid-19-related restrictions resulted in limited operation and capacity of the wheel. The project proposes to extend the operation of the wheel until March 1, 2023 to offset financial hardship experienced by the vendor and further extend operation until March 1, 2025 to support economic recovery. The proposed change in the operation of the wheel from one year to a maximum of five years, would not result in any additional changes to the project site. For further information, call Don Lewis at (628) 652-7543 or email at don.lewis@sfgov.org.

Persons who are unable to attend the scheduled ERO hearing may submit written comments regarding this case to the individual listed above via email. Comments received by 8:30 a.m. on the day of the hearing will be made as part of the official record and will be brought to the attention of the ERO.
