The City of San Francisco desires to use the space for other storage purposes and would like to see The Exposition Organ moved out as soon as possible.

This aspiration could compromise the instrument's protection and security over time.

The instrument has been in storage for over eighteen years. It is time for its resurrection as a tourist attraction and for public use and enjoyment.
