Poll finds mixed reactions over closing Golden Gate Park at night 

Ever wonder what happened to a proposal to close Golden Gate Park at night? We reported in March that former Mayor Gavin Newsom's legislation to make the park safer in the wee hours was all but dead, but it was still a little hazy as to why. So someone out there decided to do a poll on the measure.

An informal poll conducted by mayoral candidate Assessor Recorder Phil Ting on his Reset San Francisco website shows just how divided people are on the idea.

While it’s hardly scientific, the poll does have more than 1,700 votes and it finds that public support is all over the place on the issue.

On the curfew from 1 to 5 a.m. in Golden Gate Park, 29 percent strongly support the idea, 26 percent somewhat support it, 20 percent strongly oppose the curfew and 24 percent somewhat oppose it.

“That’s 54% in favor and 44% opposed to the current curfew plan,” reads the blog. “In the political world, that’s a wobbler.”
