At 5 p.m. tonight in City Hall’s Room 416, representatives and supporters of The Marsh, the cafe and theater on Valencia Street, will make a case before the Board of Appeals to guarantee conditions during the demolition and construction of a five-story condo building next door to their property.

“We need to make sure the city requires ENFORCEABLE restrictions and conditions in regards to the proposed condos next door,” The Marsh’s Stephanie Weisman, founder and artistic director wrote in an e-mail. “Protect The Marsh from sound and other interference that could be disastrous to our programs and shows. The demolition, construction, and building design all pose a number of threats to the daily functioning of The Marsh.”
