Coalition Formed to Keep the Warriors in Oakland
San Francisco, CA – June 21, 2017 – The Good Neighbor Coalition today announced it has started to collect signatures and will work within the legislative system to allow voters to decide whether or not it is correct for the City of San Francisco to encourage a move by the Warriors from their home court in Oakland to a site in San Francisco across the street from a children’s hospital and medical center. The Good Neighbor Coalition is a group of citizens from both sides of the Bay who believe that voters should be involved with planning decisions that would have a major impact on their communities. The Coalition believes San Franciscans have concluded that the deal developed by SF City Hall and the sports team’s owners is out of character – no city worth its salt would disrespect its closest neighbor and simultaneously push a plan that would interfere with public health.Read more
Top scientists oppose arena site in an open letter to Mayor Edwin M. Lee:
Dear Mayor Lee,
We write as faculty members at UCSF who are also members of the US National
Academy of Sciences. Many of us either are, or have previously been, leaders on this Campus. We have seen this University rise to true excellence over the course of the past 40 years, and we look forward to an even greater future for UCSF and the exciting private biotech and medical organizations that it has attracted to Mission Bay. But we are seriously concerned that this future is threatened by the plan to construct a very large sports, entertainment, and event arena in our midst.

The Golden State Warriors’ home court has been in Oakland for over 45 seasons and it will remain that way with your help.
From those of us who remember when former Warriors head coach, Al Attles jumped out of his seat and onto the court in support of his star player, in the Warriors 1975 championship victory, to those who celebrated after the 2015 championship, we do not have to settle for the Warriors leaving Oakland, CA.Read more
