In reality, a few people within the Park system started a campaign against the range a year before the lease was set to be renewed - using noise as the issue.

Despite a huge outpouring of support, the park board members basically went full Pontius Pilate and washed their hands of the situation.

It was all rather disgusting...to the point where much of what goes on in the Bay is mired in corruption at the end of the day.
