Update on the Balboa Reservoir Development and Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Study

A brief history
This Spring, the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) approved a set of Principles and Parameters that were pulled together after two years of public meetings. The Principles and Parameters were folded into a Request for Proposal for developers. Three developer teams out of a pool nine were selected by a cross-City department group which also includes one representative from the BRCAC, Lisa Spinali, and one representative from City College, the Associate Vice President of Facilities Management.

In June of this year, the public was invited on two occasions to listen and provide comments on the three developer team proposals. The proposals were also posted online. These are initial proposals, and as one of the developers said, the end product will probably look very different from the first version.

Going forward
The next step in this process is the selection of the winning developer. The same group that chose the three finalists have interviewed the developers again and are currently reviewing more detailed proposals. They will choose one developer based on three criteria:

  • How responsive the developer is to community concerns;
  • The financial viability of the developer; and
  • How well the proposals address the Principles and Parameters submitted by the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee.

Their selection is then approved by the SFPUC General Manager, and they hope to announce an approved developer team in early September.     (more…)

Free tuition already appears to be paying off for City College of San Francisco, where early signs indicate that student enrollment may grow for the first time in the fall semester since 2008, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.

Student enrollment for the first tuition-free semester at the college this fall is up 17 percent compared to this time last year, according to college data from July 5. Enrollment in credit courses, which city officials have funded for San Francisco residents, has grown 25.5 percent.        (more…)
