Good News Today --- Day 3/23

Walk: JCCSF, Trader Joe's
Distance: 2 miles and take yoga class

The Presidio Trust Board of Directors announces that it has unanimously decided not to pursue any of the proposals to build a cultural institution at the Mid-Crissy Field site.

Ciwt says Yay!!   She (and it sounds like many others) wrote the Presidio Trust requesting that they postpone any decisions about a huge, spectacular part of our Presidio until the very extensive changes (new greenway, more connections to the waterfront, restored wetlands, youth education camp, and more )now in progress are complete and new use and traffic patterns naturally evolve.  In a few years the site will be even more glorious, and perhaps then it will be determined that the best 'cultural institution' on the designated eight acres is Nature Itself.

How Totally, Totally neat and fine that the Presidio Trust Board of Directors saw it the same way, and had the strength and vision to wait even voting down the likes of George Lucas and his supporters (Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Jerry Brown and a host of powerful others). Wonderful!!!
