More on NIMBY Wars

Over at the San Francisco Bay Guardian Steven T. Jones and Amanda Witherell have an article on all the various problems faced recently by groups trying to stage street fairs, create public art, and generally extend the fun in our city. It looks like the odious fee increases that were being slapped on the How Weird Street Faire and groups that wanted to use public parks for events (like Free Movie Night in Dolores Park) are being put off for the time being, but there is still a lot to be done in working out compromises between city agencies, NIMBYs who don't want to suffer disruptions (no matter how limited) to their lifestyles, and those who want to create more public events for the citizens of San Francisco.
