Treasure Island environmental report due Monday 

The impacts of San Francisco’s highest-profile planned redevelopment project will be outlined in a report due Monday.

The draft environmental impact report for the redevelopment of Treasure Island and parts of Yerba Buena Island is scheduled to be published Monday, according to city planning official Rick Cooper.

The public will be invited to comment on the draft report in writing or in person at a City Hall hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. Aug. 12.

The report must be finalized in response to public comments and then certified by city leaders before construction work can begin.

The redevelopment project would radically change the skyline east of San Francisco’s northern waterfront, with hotel and residential towers up to 60 stories planned on the artificially made island.

Roughly 8,000 new homes are planned on the island, which is between San Francisco and Oakland and is currently sparsely populated.

New bus and ferry services are planned to help move residents between the island and the mainland.

The draft report is due to be published Monday on the website of the Major Environmental Analysis division of the San Francisco Planning Department.
