Central Subway: North Beach Group Files Suit

The final day of July was a busy one for Muni's legal representatives. Not only did the Municipal Transportation Agency receive a demand letter from a lawyer hired by the North Beach Business Association, it was sued by another North Beach group.

Save North Beach, formed and led by area man Marc Bruno, filed suit Tuesday against the city, Muni, the Board of Supervisors, and Planning Department regarding the proposal to extract tunnel-boring machines for the Central Subway near Washington Square Park.

Along similar lines to the arguments made by attorney Susan Brandt-Hawley in her letter penned on behalf of the North Beach merchants, Bruno claims the notion of an extraction tunnel is merely a cover to begin work on the unfunded and largely unplanned “Phase III” of the Central Subway project prior to tackling myriad environmental requirements.
