San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors votes today on a proposal to redevelop Treasure Island, a former naval base, into an environmentally friendly mini-city. The plan includes 8,000 new housing units, 200 acres of parks and open space including an organic farm and a wind farm. But critics say the plan doesn’t fully consider the potential for flooding and liquefaction on the island or the impact that 19,000 new residents will have on Bay Bridge traffic.
