The State

A developer who is building more than 860 apartments in a San Francisco neighborhood has hired a consulting firm to help stop a proposed baseball park nearby because of possible noise and traffic congestion. The Cleveland-based Forest City Development reportedly paid $10,000 to back “San Franciscans for Planning Priorities,” which describes itself as a community-based movement supported by neighborhood activists and environmentalists. The group is urging citizens to write Mayor Art Agnos and Spectacor Management Group, a Philadelphia firm that is negotiating with the city to develop a ballpark and arena.
