We are happy to report that the Board of Supervisors has approved the grants that support the project. This renovation was made possible thanks to a generous $5 million funding commitment from UCSF, who committed this grant through their Dogpatch Community Task Force to help address potential impacts from proposed UCSF projects in the neighborhood. Of that $5 million commitment, $835,000 was granted by UCSF to the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District, to provide design services for the project, in close coordination with Rec and Park and as an in-kind grant to the City. The remaining $4.165 of UCSF’s $5 million commitment will be granted directly to Rec and Park as a cash grant to be used for construction of the project.
The design team is on boarding subconsultants, building out a detailed project schedule with submittals and reviews, and working on the Design Development phase of the project.
You may see some crews on site in mid-June. We will be completing soils testing that is required per the City’s Maher Ordinance. We’ll also be testing the soil for infiltration capacity.
Please stay tuned for more updates!
