Don't rush the Candlestick EIR - Page 2

One of the few times that the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors will get to weigh in on the biggest land-use decision facing San Francisco today

The EIR broadly proclaims that "construction activities associated with the project would not result in a human health risk involving the disturbance of naturally occurring asbestos, demolition of buildings that could contain hazardous substances in building materials, or possible disturbance of contaminated soils or groundwater within one-quarter mile of an existing school." That is — at the very least — a matter of some dispute.

There's lots more - 4,400 pages more - and if the approval process is going to be anything other than an utter farce, the Planning and Redevelopment directors need to extend the public comment period for at least another 45 days. *
