Eastern Neighborhoods

The biggest problem we face is the elimination of traffic lanes and parking spots on our major streets.

An anonymous group of what organizers describe as big-bucks donors to UCSF hired an imposing cast of consultants — including former UCSF Senior Vice Chancellor Bruce Spaulding and, for a time, Chronicle columnist and former Mayor Willie Brown — to block the plan for the arena and adjacent twin office towers in Mission Bay near the waterfront…

The emergence of the opposition group comes just a month before the final environmental impact report for the Warriors’ arena is due…
