Fort Winfield Scott’s future

In January, 2018, the Presidio Trust issued a Request for Concept Proposals (RFCP) with the goal of turning the Fort Scott buildings into a “Campus for Change”

Several proposals were submitted early in the summer of 2018 – these are on the Presidio website at https://www.presidio.gov/fort-winfield-scott/proposals, as are the Trust staff’s preliminary recommendations.  Public comment was also invited.

The Presidio Historical Association’s letter PHA Fort Scott Concepts Comments   focused on the importance of providing for historic interpretation in the planing for the reuse of the Ft Scott site.

The Presidio Trust Board will consider these proposals at the regularly scheduled Board meeting:Thursday, September 27, 2018, from 4:30 PM – 09:00 PM, at the Presidio Officers’ Club, 50 Moraga Avenue.  There will be an opportunity for public comment at the meeting – Representatives of PHA will be in attendance at the Trust Meeting this Thursday and will reinforce the recommendations and concerns listed in our formal response during open comment.  PHA encourages you to attend and voice your opinion as well.
