We have won a major battle! Due to the hard work of a broad coalition – including historic preservation organizations, environmental groups, and neighborhood associations – the proposal to build the large, Fisher contemporary art museum at the Presidio has been withdrawn. The project would have threatened the historic integrity and natural beauty of the Presidio, which is a national historic landmark.

Although the Fisher museum proposal is now dead, the Presidio Trust is still considering other large construction projects for the Main Post. These projects include a new building on the site of the bowling alley, a hotel complex along the eastern edge of the Main Parade Ground, an addition to the historic theater, an addition to the Presidio Chapel, and the demolition of the two historic barracks buildings opposite the Officers’ Club. These proposals are being evaluated in terms of their impact on the Presidio’s historic and natural resources
