Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: San Francisco panels "approve Hunters Point shipyard report"
Panels approve Hunters Point shipyard report

Plans to turn the vacant Hunters Point shipyard into a new neighborhood for 24,500 people received an important boost Thursday night when San Francisco's planning and redevelopment commissions narrowly approved the project's hotly contested environmental impact report.

"This project has a long way to go, but this is a start," said Planning Commission President Ron Miguel. "And it's about time it got started."

While the Redevelopment Commission approved the report unanimously, the Planning Commission split 4-3, with Christina Olague, Kathrin Moore and Hisashi Sugaya opposed.

The long, contentious meeting pitted neighbor against neighbor as they argued over the future of the neighborhood. Concerns about the toxic waste that will be left underground at the shipyard and the environmental impact of the construction plan clashed with the city's promise of thousands of permanent and construction jobs, millions of dollars in community benefits and the revitalization of a long-abandoned part of the city.
