America’s Cup gets unanimous approval from bay regulator
Posted On: Jun 08, 2012

Plans to hold the America’s Cup regatta on San Francisco Bay sailed smoothly past the latest stage, earning unanimous approval from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, Bay City News reported.

The commission voted 17-0 Thursday to issue permits for construction along the waterfront in advance of the sailing race, which begins with preliminary races starting this August and ends with the America’s Cup Finals in September 2013.

More than a dozen people spoke during the public comment portion of Thursday’s meeting and not a single one opposed the project, Bay City News reported.

The absence of drama comes after a tumultuous time earlier this year when the city and race organizers agreed to drastically scale back plans for the race, including eliminating a long-term development agreement for waterfront property, Bay City News reported.

The America’s Cup still needs more approvals. The National Park Service, U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers still have to authorize parts of the project.
