The Community Window on the Hunters Point Shipyard Cleanup is an information clearinghouse on the environmental cleanup of the Hunters Point Shipyard, located in the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco. This is an environmental justice project dedicated to empowering the Bayview community and all residents of San Francisco with the information and resources needed to become meaningfully involved in the cleanup of the Hunters Point Shipyard Superfund site.
Through our office in the Bayview and this web site, our aim is to ensure that you, the public, have the support you need to express your concerns about the cleanup and to ensure that the cleanup of the Hunters Point Shipyard meets your goals for health, safety and environmental protection.
