UCSF’s support for the Golden State Warriors’ proposed Arena and Events Center to rise in Mission Bay will be contingent on securing a binding and funded agreement “to address traffic concerns that are projected to result when large, dual or overlapping events occur at the proposed Warriors complex and nearby AT&T Park.”
As outlined in a just revealed “Win-WinSF” campaign, UCSF will require three pieces to be in place in order to support the arena:
1. An agreed-upon strategy for real-time monitoring and management of traffic during large dual or overlapping events
2. A mechanism for managing the scheduling of large dual or overlapping events, if needed, to protect patient safety and ensure access to the Mission Bay hospitals.
3. A means for ensuring follow through on the commitments for years to come.
Keep in mind that around 1,500 UCSF health care workers change shifts each day at 7 p.m., which is often peak time for arena events and is likely fueling the California Nurses Association’s opposition to the arena.
