$400K grant to help transform Bayview parcel into park

With help from a $400,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, San Francisco will begin clean up of a waterfront Bayview parcel for a public park.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the grant Tuesday to clean up contamination at the 900 Innes Ave. site. The City purchased the site, along with two others, three years ago.

Total cleanup will cost $1.1 million, which includes $764,000 from Recreation and Park’s open space acquisition funds. The City purchased the 2.4-acre Innes Avenue site from its previous owner, the nonprofit Tenderloin Housing Clinic.

The site includes the historic Shipwright’s Cottage where author Jack London’s Snark was built.

Next steps for the park clean up is the release of a draft environmental review report set for March 2017 with certification expected in fall of 2018. The remediation work would then follow.
