SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco planners want Apple to keep a beloved city fountain, as it moves forward with plans for a new store in Union Square.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/152MQ88) that planners released a review of Apple's design proposal on Thursday. It calls for the Cupertino-based company to keep the fountain at its current spot or find another place for it in the city.

Apple is currently envisioning one of its classic cube-style stores.

Plans submitted to the city last month showed no space for the fountain designed by famed local sculptor Ruth Asawa, prompting an outcry from residents.

Apple spokeswoman Michaela Wilkinson says the company and Hyatt intend to find the best place for the fountain when the project is approved.

The fountain was installed in 1973 as part of what was then the new Hyatt complex.
