Gov. Jerry Brown assures redevelopment funds for Hunters Point are safe

SF Examiner
Apr. 14th, 2011

One of the concerns we pointed out in a story on Sunday about a city effort to rebuild eight of San Francisco’s most decrepit public housing developments was that one of the sites, Alice Griffith, depended on $40 million in matching redevelopment funds. Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to cut redevelopment funds, however, led to some major concerns over major projects that have been years in the making -- such as the development of the old naval shipyard at Hunters Point. But Brown’s office has come forward to assure Mayor Ed Lee and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom that The City’s plans for Bayview-Hunters Point can still count on the Redevelopment Agency for funding.
