Following the Thursday Meeting of the BCDC, we were granted, as displaced low-income housing refugees,
A Temporary HUMANITARIAN Respite, NOT a Permanent Placement.
- All those with Legal Liveaboard Status who signed and those who did not sign.
- All those who were once Legal Liveaboard and had that taken away for a different designation By a threat to Evict by Management
- All those who were otherwise without designation and used their Vessel as their residence.
WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN 1 Year at Oyster Point Marina To Find a liveaboard slip elsewhere.
GET IT STRAIGHT PLEASE – We have had our security/our peace of mind/our homes TAKEN FROM US. Our homes are our VESSELS.
WE PAY FOR SAFE HARBOR. OUR PERMANENT SAFE HARBOR IS DENIED NOW at OCM.
We have been given by the BCDC and County and City REPRESENTATIVES WHO CARE, all of us who considered Oyster Cove Marina, their Permanent residence, a HUMANITARIAN allowance to TEMPORARILY occupy as Legal liveaboards, LIVEABOARD SLIPS at Oyster Point. until we can find liveaboard status in other Marinas.
We will have 1 year to find a PERMANENT HOME at other marinas INDIVIDUALLY not as a community. WE HAVE TO ADVOCATE as a community to INCREASE THE LIVEABOARD ALLOWANCE PERCENTAGE.
The BCDC, is not able, unless the BAY PLAN is amended, to institute a change in Live Aboard Allowance at Marinas. According to the Bay Plan and McAteer Petris Act LAB allowance now stands at 10% of all slips in a particular marina, not current occupancy. I.E. if a Marina has 200 slips and only 100 are occupied by vessels 20 liveaboards are allowed by the BCDC.
MAKE NO MISTAKE, you have a RIGHT to housing. Your housing at OCM has been taken away through a process where KILROY REALTY and KIDDER MATTHEWS have misrepresented their intentions for a period of 4 years. TIDELINE MARINE served notices on 6/16 of this year giving a very small compensation offer from KILROY and refused to dialogue with us as did KILROY.
In 2018 we were given the assurances of NO EVICTION by the previous owner, GREENLAND USA, in a meeting WITH City of South San Francisco Representatives PRESENT at that meeting. This assurance was given just prior to Kilroy Realty‘s purchase of the 42-acre development site.
Following Kilroy‘s purchase “Public Meetings” by Oyster Point Development (Kilroy‘s entity) were held where we were not given any reason to believe that this previous assurance of no eviction would be altered or changed when we questioned this matter directly, we believe this was intentional.
More and more Liveaboard Residents in the SF Bay are under threat.
Its time to advocate and organize.
This is because we have NO RECOGNITION of our HOUSING RIGHTS.
Join Us to change that!
