Newsom coming home from NY with ideas for Golden Gate Park

Gavin Newsom visited Central Park on his trip to New York for the Clinton Global Initiative and is coming home all revved up to solve the problem of homeless people camping out in Golden Gate Park.

Central Park was privatized in 1980 when a group called the Central Park Conservancy took it over, raised $300 million and cleaned up the park. Privatization isn’t in the cards for Golden Gate Park, but a zero-tolerance policy for homeless encampments is.

I predict that Chris Daly and other activists declare war on this plan, outlined in an article in today’s Chronicle.
