Now that the selection of the developer for the Balboa Reservoir site has been made, the prospect of the new housing project to the south may be more real for residents here.

Community involvement through the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) will be an ongoing process, as the developer is called to mitigate the impacts–parking, traffic and public amenities–on Sunnyside and other adjacent neighborhoods. All residents are welcome at the meetings of the BRCAC. The next meeting is Monday October 2nd, 2017.

The developer for the site has been chosen, but there is much that remains yet to be determined about the development, and community input will remain an important element of the direction that the plans take. Additional information at the Balboa Reservoir tab at top.

From Jennifer Heggie of SNA’s Balboa Reservoir Committee (presented at recent SNA Quarterly Meeting). More about this important local housing development at tab at top of this page.

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…)
