Pelosi Statement Praising Presidio Trust Announcement on Letterman

June 14, 1999

Congratulations to the Presidio Trust on their announcement of a "preferred alternative" for the Letterman Complex at the Presidio. Several excellent alternatives for Letterman were under consideration by the Trust and the step taken today marks a major milestone on the Trust's journey to sustainability.

Today's decision on the preferred alternative exemplifies the fine leadership of the Presidio Trust. The Letterman lease will be a major accomplishment for the Trust, which will preserve the park's environmental integrity while ensuring that the Presidio becomes a self-sustaining national park. The Trust has an important challenge from Congress to become self-sufficient, and I am confident that its leadership will realize even greater success for the Presidio and bring great pride to our community as a place of beauty and recreation.

Many members of the Presidio Trust were involved with the Presidio Council in developing the general concepts for the Trust and in the public planning process with the National Park Service. Their participation resulted in legislation passed by Congress to create a unique management model for a unique national park.
