Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Hunter's Point Shipyard (CA) Court Decision
Redevelopment of San Francisco's Hunters Point clears court hurdle

San Francisco can go forward with the redevelopment of the Hunters Point Shipyard after a San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled in favor of The City in an environmental lawsuit. Judge Ernest Goldsmith found that the report complied with California law. However, he said that if The City authorizes an early transfer of any property on the site from the Navy to the developer, further environmental review would be required. That leaves the Navy in charge of cleanup.

The development has been held up by a series of lawsuits stemming from the former Navy facility’s designation as a highly toxic Superfund site by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

This lawsuit against developer Lennar Urban was the last to be decided. It was brought by two community groups, People Organized to Win Employment Rights and Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice, which challenged the project’s environmental impact report.
