Given the population density of the area, the San francisco bay area is a bad place for a nuclear power reactor.

The Hayward fault is currently considered the most dangerous in the world. It is due for a major quake in the next 30 years. Per the San Leandro Times, this power plant is currently being built. It will be located a few miles from the Hayward fault. This is beyond disgusting. Can anyone in charge look at Japan and have a clue????? This is criminal!

Number one I don’t remember seeing or hearing anything to do with a nuclear power plant in San Leandro till this day March 31, 2011. If perhaps something might have been said before hand by this illustrious Republican news rag, there might have been time in which the public could have intervened into such a vast undertaking as to destroy the health of our Bay Area biosphere as is now presented by the San Leandro Times in an exclusive report. Why did the SLT not say something about this before the contracts were signed? Did they not know being the premier newsletter of San Leandro? Were there no reporters to document this world changing event at City Hall?

Number two has there been an environmental impact report posted or even done? The last I heard from the San Leandro Times was that there was going to be a business park built at the Marina and that the boats were going to have to dock elsewhere.
Let me say one more thing; this deal does not pass the smell test of an open debate and appears to be a back room sell out to financial interest concocted by a mayor whose skin appears to be as thick as his neck and cares nothing about the health of his constituents just as he cares nothing about his own health.
This project can be stopped at the local level and is not a mandate handed down from Congress and I for one intend to stop this insanity of having San Leandro become the home of a nuclear power plant in the Bay Area and will do so by any means necessary under the law. Until fuel rods used by nuclear energy companies to feed the military’s need for weaponry is replaced by pebble bed nuclear reactor technology there will be no nuclear power plant in this town.

You guys are hilarious! Did anyone notice the subheading under the title of the article? Did you notice the name of the plant's spokesperson? Go re-read the article, and then look at the calendar.

For some reason when I try to find the article Nuclear Power Coming to SL which I read on the front page of the San Leandro Times April 1 and lauded as an exclusive I keep getting to some innocuous poll having to do with nuclear power in general and not a mumbling word concerning nuclear power in San Leandro. Where is that article concerning a power plant that was published in the March 31, 2011 SL Times? This entire affair reeks to high heaven with secrecy since that front page exclusive is nowhere to be found on the internet. Was it published by mistake and now the newspaper is scrubbing it from their site in order to end any debate on this issue?

There is no proper public consultation. No communication plan to surrounding residences in San Leandro and surrounding cities.

When/where was the EPA study involved? Is SL city council aware of the earthquake in Japan that occured March 11 and the severe threats it caused at the nuclear plant in Fukushima???!
How can you be so upset about wildlife endangerment when toying with the idea of building new developments(Heron Bay) but not with this?
Is the Oakland Aiport aware of this decision? How would people feel knowing that they are flying into an International Airport, right over a nuclear plant, that sits within view of the runway?!
Why wasn't this brought to the voters?!!!!!
If SL wants to stimulate the Marina area and bring in revenue, how come they haven't proposed to build a stadium for the Oakland Athletics there?! There's lots of room and it would be the perfect area for new restaurants and businesses to thrive.

Hey Marga,
Go read the recent copy of the San Leandro Times and then you go back and re-read this article here.
Ribbon cutting for this nuclear plant is April 1, 2011. That's not 'ground-breaking' ribbon cutting. That is beyond discussion

In light of what is happening in Japan, having a nuclear power plant is too risky.

A funny thing happened to me on my way to the pebble bed reactor dispute, I was waylaid by my local newspapers sense of humor. The headline read Nuclear Power Coming to San Leandro and then it went on to be explained by the Acme Nuclear Power Companys spokeswoman April Fulzh(April Fools) how the Marina waters provided the perfect cooling system for the plants nuclear fuel and how that if there ever were an accident the Marina could supply an endless amount of water . The joke went even further by the newspaper stating that a vial of plutonium would be given to all residents that attended the celebration of the agreement.

My only problem is that I went for it hook line and sinker and wrote a rather scathing opinion on the subject being blinded by my emotions concerning the subject. Its hell to laugh and cringe at the same time. Its tough being fool of the month. Thank you San Leandro Times for posting the article I will always remember as one of the funniest days of my life.
