Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Treasure Island (CA) would be safe from Tsunami

Protecting residents: Developers working to revamp Treasure Island say it can withstand a 10-foot wave if the ground is elevated and compacted, which is called for in existing plans. (Mike Koozmin/The Examiner) San Francisco officials re-examining the proposed Treasure Island redevelopment project in the wake of the recent tsunami in Japan say the threat of inundation has already been addressed in design plans.

The multibillion-dollar redevelopment project was questioned at last week’s Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee meeting by Supervisor Eric Mar, who wanted more information about a tsunami’s potential impact.

On Friday, Deputy Director Rich Hillis of the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development said no major changes are in store because the disaster potential has already been addressed.
