Panels approve Hunters Point shipyard report John Wildermuth San Francisco Chronicle June 4, 2010Plans 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.

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.
