Sunol RFI Community Survey Results:

Thank you so much to those who responded to the Sunol RFI survey from late 2019. We received 644 responses. We are pleased to provide you with the results here.

What happens next?

The SFPUC will analyze the results of the survey and finalize the list of uses at the RFI Properties and develop a draft site plan.  The draft site plan will be shared with the community, and may include a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) process to select operators for each of the chosen concepts.

Responses to the RFI

During the submittal period, the SFPUC received the following proposals, including two new proposals:

Staff evaluated the proposals to ensure that each met the minimum qualifications as reflected in the evaluation criteria described in the RFI Brochure. The proposals were not ranked or prioritized. The results of that evaluation can be found here.

A more detailed description of the various proposed uses can be found here in the introductory letter

The Community Survey closed on January 17, 2020. 

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is seeking interest letters and proposed concepts to consider in developing a future formal Request for Proposals (RFP) for lease of portions of approximately 642 acres of real property located at 6900 Mission Road, in Sunol California (the Property), comprised of a former 309-acre golf course (Golf Course Parcel) and a 333-acre parcel of land currently used for cattle grazing (Grazing Parcel).

The SFPUC envisions a mixture of SFPUC utility uses (uses that serve a utility purpose) and third-party uses at the Property. The SFPUC previously identified potential utility uses for the Property. These uses are not necessarily mutually exclusive, and they have not been prioritized. The list of potential uses is not exhaustive. Proposers may submit proposals for any legal uses, except for golf course, marijuana cultivation, and quarry uses.
