Project Advisory Committee (PAC)

The cleanup and closure project was successfully completed, thanks to public input and community partners who regularly participated in meetings and site walks. PG&E held regular meetings with the Hunters Point Project Advisory Committee (PAC) to discuss the cleanup and restoration efforts at the site. With the PAC’s input, the project team carried out the work needed in a manner that was sensitive to site neighbors. The PAC was made up of the following groups:

  • Community leaders
  • Labor leaders
  • Clergy members
  • Local residents
  • Community-based organizations
  • Environmental justice groups
  • City staff
  • Local businesses

 

Get involved with NOW Hunters Point

In 2013, the NOW Hunters Point Program was launched on the PG&E Hunters Point Power Plant site (next to Heron’s Head Park near the intersection of Cargo Way and Jennings Street). NOW Hunters Point is a series of events intended to inspire and inform citizens of the new vision for the former power plant site.


Over the past three years, over 40 community-focused events have been hosted such as movie nights, an annual circus event, a BBQ cook-off, art camp, and health/job fairs. Over 11,000 people have attended. All the events were intended to preserve the community’s rich history and gather ideas for the future of the site.


More community-oriented events are coming in 2017. For additional information about interim-use activities and events, visit NOW Hunters Point.

Local hiring and sustainability

PG&E has implemented sustainability and local hiring practices that benefit workers, the community and the environment. These include:

  • Running one of the top local hiring programs in San Francisco. For the recent shoreline remediation and restoration, 36 percent of the project’s laborer/operator workforce was hired locally and worked over 17,000 hours on the project.
  • Transporting excavated soil by rail from the rail yard located near the site on Cargo Way. The rail transport reduced greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 31,622 metric tons.
  • Recycling more than 548,542 tons of waste since 2011.
  • Using local businesses and vendors whenever possible.

PG&E is proud of the local jobs created at the site since the plant closed. The project team coordinated the community-hiring program with the City of San Francisco’s CityBuild program and local labor leaders. To learn more about CityBuild and its services, including job opportunities throughout San Francisco, please call 415-701-4848 or access the CityBuild Academy website.


The Hunters Point Power Plant project’s goal was to get a minimum of 30 percent of its labor from the local community. The goal was met or exceeded every year since the project became active, with local labor typically reaching around 40 percent.
