Thank you to all who attended our Community Open Houses on November 13, July 9, and April 27, 2013 and participated in our online surveys. We have incorporated your input into the final project design concept. Our open house connected community members with city staff from SFMTA, SF Planning, SFPUC and Invest in Neighborhoods (Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development) to hear about projects proposed in the Mission. 

If you weren't able to make it, see how your input shaped the final design concept for the Mission and Valencia Green Gateway in the workshop boards from the open house.

Improving Our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community

The Mission & Valencia Green Gateway is a partnership of the SFPUC, Planning Department, and Department of Public Works, located along Valencia Street between Cesar Chavez and Mission streets.

This project will feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include rain gardens, permeable pavement and bulb outs to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer system, which overwhelms the system and may result in neighborhood flooding.
