Open-space advocates want extended comment for redevelopment 

Open space advocates want to extend the public comment period for the 4,000 page draft report for the Hunters Point redevelopment project even further since it was released just before the holiday season.

The Neighborhood Parks Council, a coalition of neighborhood parks organizations that put a large parks bond on the ballot in 2000, is asking on its Web site for people to write letters to Mayor Newsom for the extension.

The draft for the redevelopment of 700 acres includes 10,500 new homes, 32 percent of which are to be designed as affordable housing, was released the Nov. 12, with 45 days for public comment. The Redevelopment Agency extended that period to Jan. 12. The NPC acknowledges the extension helps, but says it’s was not enough time, especially given the holidays.
