Concept B for Sunset Boulevard Greenway

Wide streets with large landscaped areas provide many opportunities for improving stormwater management in the area. We've asked for your help to identify the community’s priorities for improving the local landscape, such as habitat enhancement, trail and transit access, educational opportunities, and pedestrian amenities.

The project team refined alternatives from our July 25, 2013 workshop that were presented for public input in Fall 2013 at the below community engagements.

Community Engagements

We have presented to the following community groups to discuss the public feedback we have received, next steps for the project, and ask for input on project alternatives. We also hosted two coffee talks near the northern and southern project area to raise awareness about the project and collect feedback.

Improving Our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community

The Sunset Boulevard Greenway will feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include rain gardens to naturally capture stormwater and allow it to soak into the landscape 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, which overwhelms the system and may result in neighborhood flooding. Proposed rain gardens along Sunset Boulevard can improve stormwater management for more than 20 acres of paved surfaces in the Sunset District.


Proposed Green Features

  • Rain gardens:Create functional landscaping to manage stormwater in undeveloped green areas 

Project Timeline:

  • Planning:  Winter 2013 – Spring 2014
  • Design: Spring 2014 – Summer 2015
  • Construction: Summer 2015 – Summer 2016

Additional improvements:

  • Enhance habitat for local plants and wildlife
  • Provide community space
  • Beautify the Sunset District
  • Increase public education about Green Infrastructure
  • Create real life green science opportunities for local youth
