Now that the selection of the developer for the Balboa Reservoir site has been made, the prospect of the new housing project directly to the south is becoming more real for residents in Sunnyside. Community involvement through the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) will be an ongoing process for at least the next 12 months, as the developer is called to develop plans that mitigate the impacts–parking, traffic and public amenities–on Sunnyside and other adjacent neighborhoods.

All residents are welcome at the meetings of the BRCAC. Next meeting is Monday Nov 13, 6:15-8pm, Multi-Use Building, Room 140, 55 Phelan Avenue, San Francisco CA.  (more…)

CCSF board disagrees over future of Balboa Reservoir development

By Laura Waxmann on October 30, 2017 1:00 am

City College of San Francisco trustees last week declined to take a stance against a proposed housing project on city-owned land adjacent to campus.

A resolution introduced by CCSF Trustee John Rizzo and Board of Trustees Vice President Brigitte Davila urging the college to claim ownership of the 17-acre Balboa Reservoir was tabled Thursday after failing to win sufficient support by the trustees. A housing development is planned for the site, which is owned by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The resolution called on the college to enter negotiations with the SFPUC on transferring its ownership of the lot, which provides over 1,000 parking spots.   (more…)

September 13, 2017  The Guardsman
By Bethaney Lee

The Guardsman photographed the usage of the parking lot in contention with the Balboa Reservoir Project (BRP) every hour on Aug. 28, and concluded it was used consistently throughout the day. It was highly impacted at peak class hours and the surrounding neighborhoods and streets cannot support the amount of vehicles displaced by the removal of the lower parking lot.

Tensions first arose after the BRP reported its goal was to repurpose the lot into mixed-income level housing.
