Rethinking Sunset Boulevard

The SFPUC wants to know how Sunset Boulevard can work better for you. 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 are being presented to 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 survey is helping us plan and design the upcoming Sunset Boulevard Greenway project. Over the past month, we presented at the following community groups to discuss the public feedback we have received, next steps for the project, and ask for input on project alternatives.
If you would like to request a presentation for your community group, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can still provide input on the project design alternatives. Provide input today at sunset.metroquest.com.

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.
