In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the Trust is requesting public comment on the Presidio Trust Management Plan (PTMP) Main Post Update Draft SEIS. The Draft SEIS evaluates alternatives to the planning concept for the 120-acre Main Post district at the Presidio of San Francisco identified in the 2002 PTMP, the Trust's comprehensive land use plan and policy framework. The Draft SEIS considers planning proposals that were not anticipated in the PTMP, including a contemporary art museum and a lodge, and identifies Alternative 2 as the proposed action, which is further described in the Draft Main Post Update of the PTMP. By extending the comment period, the Trust anticipates more in-depth comments on the Draft SEIS that will promote a better-informed decision. The Draft PTMP Main Post Update and Draft SEIS can be reviewed at local libraries, at the Trust headquarters at 34 Graham Street, San Francisco, CA 94129, and on the Trust Web site at http://www.Presidio.gov in the Major Projects section. Although the time for comments has been extended, the Trust requests that interested parties provide comments as soon as possible.
The purposes of the public meeting are to provide an Executive Director's report, to receive public comment at a second public meeting of the Trust's Board of Directors on the Draft PTMP Main Post Update and Draft SEIS, and to receive public comment on other matters in accordance with the Trust's Public Outreach Policy. The meeting will be held on Thursday, November 13, 2008, at 6:30 p.m., at a location to be announced in a future notice.
