"This is about this project," Scharff said. "That's what you're voting on. Do you want this particular project?"

Scharff is at once disingenuous and savvy. Although Measure D is technically only about this particular project, if he really believes that's how the voters see it he has been living in a bubble. On the other hand, if Scharff has been tuned in, he knows the only way to pass D is to decouple it from the citywide revolt against excessive bulk and ugliness. Too late for that.

If this article is true, then PAHC should have picked a neighborhood more suitable, like maybe wait for Castilleja to move away or something. Pick a street that isn't. Eying used as an alternate quick route to and from the freeway ( because some idiots narrowed Arastradero).

Pick a neighborhood where there are not dozens of children bikeriding to school every day on a busy street.
