Oh, it’s on. It’s going to be on at our Presidio Trust‘s Board of Direcor’s meeting tonight at 6:30 PM.
Why, well it’s cause the Presidio Historical Association, area NIMBYs, and local business interests will be on hand to object to anybody competing with existing lodging and entertainment purveyors outside of the Presidio. That’s why.
Now, this was the before and after for the lodge that was proposed a couple years back:
Do you think that the proposed buildings would have interfered with the historic Great Parking Lot of Northern San Francisco? I don’t, but the motel owners of Lombard Street didn’t like the idea one bit. We’ll have to wait and see how the new proposal for a lodge fares.
Same thing with the Main Post Theatre. This shot is from while ago but I’m sure the view of the moribund lobby is the same:
There are proposals to reopen this real Presidio Theatre with fewer seats than it had back in the day. But, again, that runs up against interests of those who own theatres outside of the Presdio. Oh well.
(Man, how the NIMBYs would squeal if all those thousands of horny military mens and womens came back to the Presidio to breath the air and clog up the streets. Wouldn’t that be a nightmare scenario, having those, those people in our hair again?)
Anyway, see you after the jump, where you can see the board’s agenda, the PHA’s POV and a statement from one of the District 2 Supervisor candidates.
