Hunters Point Shipyard

I was very glad to see the Board of Supervisors uphold the Final EIR on the Hunters Point Shipyard Redevelopment Plan last week. That area has been neglected by the City for far too long and there is finally a viable opportunity to redevelop the historic area. There's another vote upcoming on Tuesday which I'm confident the Board will approve and get the project going. Hopefully soon enough this neighborhood will be great again.

Jobs

Let's make sure they watch the project - so as many of the jobs as possible go to SF. Good we are getting the jobs - much better if we get the jobs for people who live here.

How do we watch the project?

Too many of SF's projects have been put on the back-burner and forgotten about. Does anyone know how we (the community) can watch and input our opinions on the development of this? All I could find was http://www.hunterspointcommunity.com/timeline.html, but it seems too broad.

Local jobs

On that same website, looks like a lot of jobs are reserved for local residents, particularly those in the Bayview-Hunters Point community.

Jobs and Housing

Bayview Hunters Point needs jobs and housing.  This development promises both and its our job to make sure both are delivered to the community.  Over 3,000 of the 10,000 housing units are supposed to be affordable.  Critical family housing in the SE part of SF.  Additionally, we need to ensure the jobs go a large number of local residents.  How can we do something for a community if we dont give them jobs?  The plan sounds great - let's make sure all the promises are kept.
