Herrera Applauds Dedication of Junior Giants Field in Hunters Point Hill Neighborhood

SAN FRANCISCO (September 13, 2005) — At a dedication ceremony at Milton Meyer Recreation Center today, City Attorney Dennis Herrera praised the opening of the new Junior Giants field on Hunters Point Hill, applauding the broad public-private partnership that is helping refurbish neighborhood recreational and public safety facilities. The unveiling of the newly renovated field marks an important first among a number of community improvement projects scheduled for completion in the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood, of which several will be funded by $1 million secured by the City last September to settle litigation involving four federally-subsidized apartment complexes owned by AIMCO, a Denver-based real estate investment trust.

Garamendi’s endorsement aims to add heft to what had been a lightly regarded proposal and to elevate the profile of a seemingly appealing, frightfully bad idea to one worthy of consideration by California voters and policy makers.
