Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: San Francisco (CA) supervisors to consider Hunters Point Naval Shipyard plan
Vision for Transforming Hunters Point Comes Before Supervisors

April 29, 2010

But this is Hunters Point, where a legacy of toxic waste and poverty has meant that change comes slowly.

For 10 years, city officials and the Lennar Corporation, a home builder based in Miami, have been preparing a far-reaching plan to replace the contaminated Hunters Point Naval Shipyard with one of the largest development projects the city has seen.
