All of the hype surrounding the redevelopment of the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and Candlestick Point has drawn a lot more interest than The City anticipated.
A Redevelopment Agency public hearing Tuesday was attended by many city residents looking to provide their 2 cents. As a result, the public comment period was extended by 15 days and will conclude Jan. 12.
That will give interested parties enough time for some light reading of the draft environmental impact report, which checks in at 4,000 pages.
The proposed redevelopment of 700 acres includes 10,500 new homes, 32 percent of which are to be designed as affordable housing.
