Scientist Against Bayview Redevelopment

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KCBS)- An environmental scientist renowned for her expertise will join Bayview Hunters Point residents today at a news conference Monday in San Francisco.

Their purpose is to ask the Board of Supervisors to reject the environmental impact report for the Lennar Corporation’s shipyard redevelopment project.

Chemist Wilma Subra has worked on behalf of local communities for over thirty years.

She says the report “fails to evaluate and assess the cumulative impacts of exposure to people and the environment as a result of exposure to the chemicals present at the site.”

The federal government has contributed about $700 million to the site’s clean up, but much of it remains contaminated.

Lennar wants to turn five hundred acres of the site into a community with homes, stores and office space.
