SF planners find Harvey Milk Plaza to be historically important

effort underway to renovate the entire plaza to create a more significant memorial to its namesake, the city's first gay supervisor who was assassinated 11 months into office the morning of November 27, 1978 along with then-mayor George Moscone inside City Hall.

Milk's successor, the late gay supervisor Harry Britt, who died last month, and former supervisor John Molinari led the effort to designate the plaza in honor of Milk in 1985.But the remodel proposal has been fiercely opposed by some in the community who have countered the goal of better honoring Milk can be achieved within the confines of the current design and at less cost than the estimated $10 million price tag for the fuller renovation proposal.
