    The environmental impact report is out on the proposed Golden State Warriors arena in San Francisco, and as expected, traffic is the big issue. Mark Matthews reports. (Published Friday, June 5, 2015)

    A coalition that includes UCSF donors and doctors is petitioning to halt the proposed Golden State Warriors stadium in San Francisco.

    The Mission Bay Alliance is described on the website as "a coalition of UCSF stakeholders, donors, faculty, physicians and the working men and women of San Francisco who are concerned about the impact of the proposed Golden State Warriors stadium on the future of the vibrant community and medical campus at Mission Bay."

    Chief concerns expressed in the petition include traffic gridlock, difficult-to-access emergency and urgent care for both UCSF and Kaiser Permanente, and commute challenges for the staff of the Mission Bay campus.

    But the coalition does not officially speak for UCSF. Representatives of the university provided a statement to NBC Bay Area in April that said in part, ". . . we are encouraged by the city's effort" to minimize traffic concerns, particularly on days when there might be events at the new stadium and nearby AT&T Park .
