Harvey Milk Terminal, Not Airport

The bid to renamed San Francisco International for Harvey Milk has apparently ended in a compromise agreement to name one of the airport's terminals for the slain gay rights icon.
Under a deal aimed at avoiding a ballot fight and a load of potential political embarrassment, Supervisor David Campos has settled for putting Milk’s name on a yet-to-be-determined terminal. The compromise comes after weeks of negotiations between Campos — chief backer of rechristening SFO in Milk’s honor — and the mayor’s office and some fellow supervisors who weren’t too hot on the idea. Campos initially suggested he would be open to naming the international terminal after the slain supervisor. But some supervisors thought that should be reserved for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the former mayor who was instrumental in its building.
SFO has three domestic terminals.
