Lands End Visitor Center final design to be revealed
The GGNRA plans a visitor center including a small shop and limited food service on a triangular section of land uphill from Louis’ Diner, on the south side of the Lands End parking lot adjacent to Point Lobos Avenue. The plans also call for restrooms to be built next door in a separate structure.
Tuesday’s meeting “will be really focused on sharing with the community the final drawings,” said Jennifer Greene Ringgold, community-engagement manager for the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. The conservancy is a nonprofit organization that works with the GGNRA to support its parks and programs.
The GGNRA, an arm of the National Parks Service that oversees federal lands including Lands End and Ocean Beach, had planned to start construction on the visitor center in February 2011. But after public input and internal reviews called for changes in the appearance of the largely concrete structure, the project architects reworked the design. That means construction on the Lands End Visitor Center now is scheduled to begin in May 2011 and wrap up in the spring of 2012, Ringgold said.
Although the designs that will be presented at Tuesday’s 6 p.m. meeting represent the final plans, Ringgold said, people will be able to comment on them at the meeting.
