Washington -- Navy Secretary Gordon England and San Francisco Mayor
Willie Brown signed an agreement yesterday that gives the city its first
parcel of land for development at Hunters Point shipyard, vowing that
despite many earlier misfires, the accord finally begins the
transformation of the 500-acre former naval facility. 

The big difference, the two men said in the Capitol offices of San
Francisco Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the new House minority whip, is that the
accord contains $50.6 million approved by Congress to clean up much of
the heavily polluted base and make it fit for people to live and work

Another difference, Pelosi and Brown said, is that the new plan was
created with more community input, including from San Francisco
Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, who represents the area, and environmental

The accord, a follow-up to an agreement signed in November 2000, also
pledges the city and the Navy to a conflict-resolution process over the
cleanup and putting pieces of the base in city hands.
