No Bites For Lake Merced Boathouse

Last year, SF Rec and Park announced its Request for Proposals for a "qualified" someone to operate the Lake Merced Boathouse. This someone would need to submit an "impressive business and operations plan" by February 4th. The agreement would be for the second floor of the boathouse building, the second floor deck, immediate grounds and parking area. Shoot forward to present day and not a single application was submitted and the opportunity has ceased. Now the city agencies in charge of the space that's been vacant for eight years will be responsible for improvements and renovations to the building. Rec and Park was in charge of finding a vendor, but the SFPUC owns the land. Both agencies will work together to figure out what's next.
