Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Main Post plan, Presidio of San Francisco
Deadline is today for comments on Presidio plan

Today marks the end of the public comment period on land use changes proposed for the Main Post of San Francisco's Presidio - a deadline that may sound bureaucratic but in fact signals the next round in an acrimonious battle unlikely to end anytime soon.

The changes, if eventually approved by the Presidio Trust, would clear the way for Gap founder Donald Fisher and his family to build a museum for their contemporary art collection. There'd be room for a hotel and a multiplex cinema, along with extensive archaeological excavations and a landscaped green replacing a large parking lot.

The unveiling of the proposed museum design in January 2008 unleashed criticism of how the Main Post is being treated by the trust, an autonomous agency that manages most of the 1,491-acre national park at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
