AstroTurf's Tears of Joy

New, 1 comment

To get a commission to vote unanimously in favor of AstroTurf: present children who dream big, and make a grown man cry. Such was the scene last night at the Rec & Park Commission hearing to renovate the Beach Chalet soccer fields west of Golden Gate Park. Dissenters said brighter lights would kill their view of the moon and stars, while others raised concerns about the environmental impacts of synthetic turf. Ultimately, though, the "kids just want to have fun" card won the night. [Richmond SF]
