The Mission Valencia Green Gateway is designed to create a welcoming community focused entryway to the Mission with the benefit of managing stormwater locally through infiltration. The project is located on Valencia Street between Cesar Chavez and Mission Streets as well as adjacent portions of Duncan Street, Tiffany Avenue, and Mission Street.

The Mission Valencia Green Gateway includes rain gardens and permeable pavement to allow stormwater to soak into the soil on site before it can enter the combined sewer system.

The project created a new plaza area at the corner of Valencia and Mission streets in addition to streetscape improvements benefiting transit, bicycle, and pedestrian access across the project area.

The Mission Valencia Green Gateway project is a collaboration between the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), SF Planning Department, and SF Department of Public Works. Planning of this project included input from three public workshops held in conjunction with other City agencies, along with multiple smaller community group meetings. Two online planning surveys also helped us receive additional community feedback.

Maintenance plans within green infrastructure will include removal of trash and debris, plant establishment and care, and permeable pavement cleaning. The maintenance schedule and frequency of activities will vary based on the site conditions and needs of the green infrastructure technology employed. The SFPUC will monitor the green infrastructure facilities for proper functioning over time and update maintenance needs and schedules as appropriate.
