Final Design Open Houses
Join one of two upcoming community open houses on the Sunset Boulevard Greenway co-hosted by District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang: Saturday, April 12 and Thursday, April 17. Come see how your comments from the public open house, presentations, and surveys have been integrated into the project design. More details below.
April Community Meetings
Next month, the SFPUC is hosting two community open houses with District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang. This green infrastructure project will utilize rain gardens to capture and infiltrate stormwater runoff from 16 blocks of Sunset Boulevard. At these April meetings, our project team will unveil the project's final design concept including the proposed rain garden locations for each block along the length of Sunset Boulevard from Lincoln Way to Sloat Boulevard.
Making Sunset Boulevard Work Better for You
Concept A for Sunset Boulevard Greenway
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 has refined alternatives that were presented for public input.
Thank you for attending our Community Open House
Thank you to those of you who attended the Community Open House on July 25, 2013. The feedback we’ve received from the meeting and from our online surveys is helping us plan and design the Sunset Boulevard Greenway project.
Over the past few months, 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.
