Compromising

As we mentioned back in January, Supervisor Scott Wiener raised a brow when he got word of the shenanigans to preserve much of the Golden Gate Park and a branch library in North Beach. The Supervisor's main concern is that the city isn't striking a balance between preserving history and building for the future. Wiener will be raising questions at today's meeting of the Land Use and Economic Development Committee. Wiener's stated that he's a supporter of the voter-approved Proposition J that launched the Historic Preservation Commission in 2008, and supports the board's goals in general. "This will be a discussion about where you draw the line," Wiener said. "The key is not having tunnel vision and making preservation decisions in a vacuum." [SF Examiner/previously, Curbed SF]
