I signed on-line,how about you?
Other ststes do a better job at preserving their history. I've mentioned " Wings over the Rockies " as a close example of what can be done with former hangars.
The real irony; a commercial lighter than air company could lease the space or Hangar One could be the jewel in any World's Fair type exhibition.
Hanger One reminds me of the song " Big Yellow Taxi ":
" You pave paradise and put up a parking lot ".
Hangar One should have Landmark status...after all it IS a landmark for the South Bay and one of the first things you see that is unique to the SFBA...

We are in a severe financial crisis. The Federal and state governments are out of money to pay for basic programs.
The hangar is cool-looking and it is somewhat historical, although it didn't play any major military role or anything like that.
We actually have a commercial airship hosted at Moffett and they chose not to use Hangar One.

2400 signatures is nothing. I could go to a concert at Shoreline and get 2400 signatures to ban dihydrogen monoxide. This is a ridiculous idea. That money needs to be put to a better purpose.
