This is making the rounds on Facebook today:
Dear Mission Community!
After many years, the 24th Street BART Plaza will get a fresh face. However, BART is not planning on putting the face of the Mission Community on it. BART staff and committee members have decided to hire an artist from LA to do the work. They have said that the Mission is changing and that the new face must reflect that change. So, they are looking to give it a “Burning Man flavor”.
It was for this reason that Precita Eyes’ approved plan was rejected by the committee. Almost all of the committee members don’t live here.
The people of the Mission paid a huge price when BART was imposed on Mission Street. We need to let them know that we will not accept the wiping out of the community just yet!
So far the process has been flawed. We are still here and want the process stopped and redone with our voice included. We need to have people who live in the Mission be on the committee.
BART will host the next Community Meeting to update
you on the 24th Street plaza redesign next Wednesday night.
We hope you can join us for this meeting of the Community Advisory Committee.

I mean, I thought we were all in agreement about Burning Man being a thing of the Mission past.
