I got the idea to write about erosion at Sunset Cliffs Natural Park during a conversation I had with City Councilman Kevin Faulconer a few weeks ago. Faulconer noted that he’d found $250,000 to fund a study that will produce recommendations for reducing erosion at the park.

During the conversation, Faulconer also told me that he would be rolling out a ballot initiative this fall that would ask voters to amend the city’s charter. The goal: To keep more lease revenues generated by Mission Bay Park businesses in the park — using them for park improvements.

I later spoke with one of Faulconer’s assistants about the erosion study. I asked: Where did the $250,000 for the study come from?

The answer: Those same Mission Bay Park lease revenues that Faulconer says he wants to use to improve Mission Bay Park.
