Public comment period extended for shipyard redevelopment

Residents and officials who want to comment on the expected impacts of a 702-acre southeastern San Francisco redevelopment project were granted a time extension.

The late December deadline for public comments about the draft environmental impact report for the redevelopment of the shuttered Hunters Point Naval Shipyard had been criticized because the comment period coincided with the winter holidays.

The San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, which is a state agency, on Tuesday extended its deadline for public comments to Jan. 12, according to redevelopment official Thor Kaslofsky.

A public hearing about the draft report by the agency’s commissioners that was held Tuesday evening will continue on Jan. 5, according to Kaslofsky.

The San Francisco Planning Department, which is a city agency, is also accepting public comments about the draft report, which it prepared.

The San Francisco Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing into the report at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Commission chairman Ron Miguel said it’s possible that the commission will vote to extend the Planning Department's public comment period.

“There has been a push for the extension,” Miguel said Wednesday. “Since it has been extended by Redevelopment, that lends more credence to [the Planning Department extending its deadline] to the same date.”
