Planning commission meets about Armory on March 8th

Thanks to Socketsite for catching this one…

Looks like the Planning Commission is giving both the NIMBYs and the NITBYs a chance to voice their opinions on the past, present, and future use of the Armory at 14th & Mission.

The meeting is on Thursday, March 8th @ 10AM, and the agenda is nothing more than “1800 MISSION STREET – southwest corner of Mission and 14th Street – Informational hearing on the occupancy of the Mission Armory by a film production studio (d.b.a.”.

Informational hearing? I think this is just a chance for those far and wide to try to stop a legal and allowable use of a building that was fought over for too damn long.

I think what Peter Ackworth (owner of did was brilliant. But despite his following all available rules and laws, as well as going above and beyond to be a good neighbor, people just won’t acknowledge that they blew it.

Fight about something for long enough, and you lose that opportunity forever.

Let this be a lesson learned.

Or on the other hand, perhaps this will be yet another lesson learned for those that dare challenge the progressive activist community…

And if you can’t be there in person, watch it live on SFGTV
