Public Meeting November 28: Your Ideas Count

The public has a chance to influence the future of the historic Presidio of San Francisco. Be at the Officers Club on Main Post near the flagpole at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 28. Come with your ideas on what you would like to see happen on Main Post: what alternatives do you want the Presidio Trust to Study? What has not worked out in the old plans for Main Post? How do we make the central area of the Presidio National Historic Landmark District into a great National Park for all the people?

Where should one go to find groups/people who are actively trying to stop the commercial use of the Presidio?

One way to help keep the historic nature of the Presidio preserved as environmental regulations provide for is to join and support the Presidio Historical Association. E-mail them at the link on their web site This is the group leading the charge for achitectural preservation and for a history museum.

Everyone needs to recognize that someone has to pay for the expensive job of maintaining and restoring the historic buildings. That places real pressure to rent out those buildings to whoever has the means to pay, be it for commercial use or house a non profit foundation.
