Warriors Reveal Plans for SF Move

The Golden State Warriors want to leave Oakland for San Francisco and they have finally made those plans public.

Warriors May Face Permitting Challenges

The Golden State Warriors want to move into a new arena by 2017. But building that arena -- even with private money -- on two San Francisco Bay piers will be a challenge for San Francisco's notoriously byzantine permitting process. But if the team can get fast-tracked for permmitting, then maybe those new processes will filter down to the mom-and-pop businesses that are trying to get started.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors took another step to making the Golden State Warriors' dream of moving to the city a reality Tuesday.

The board signed off on a resolution supporting the idea of the Warriors building a new arena on Piers 30-32.

They also waved the usual competitive bidding rules, which clears the path for the Warriors' development plan of the aging pier to be the only one the city will consider at this time.

Supervisor Jane Kim, who represents the neighborhood, voted for the measure but she said that her colleagues and her met with the team and they were assured that community meetings would be held before any design plans are finalized.

Residents and neighbors are concerned about traffic a new arena might bring to the area and water views being blocked by the arena.
