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…)

Dust, noise, and street blockage — the sewer replacement project affecting Sunnyside streets right now is an inconvenience for many residents, prompting complaints posted on NextDoor. Why is the work being done? When asked about it, Jean Walsh, the contact for the project at SFPUC, had this to say about it:


300 block of Hearst Ave. Several other blocks are effected.

This project is to expand the capacity of the sewers in the area in order to reduce flooding. The project is scheduled to take place May 2017 through approximately November 2017.

I am planning to get the most updated schedule for each affected street and post to Nextdoor next week. In the meantime, here is a bit more information:

The project consists of the following:

1. Sewer capacity improvements:

  • Constructing an auxiliary sewer along Foerster Street (from Hearst Avenue to Melrose Avenue)
  • Replacing the existing 8” sewer with a 12” sewer along Mangels Avenue (from Foerster Street to Detroit Street)
  • Replacing the existing 8” sewer with 24” to 27” sewer along Hearst Avenue (from Edna Street to Detroit Street)
  • Replacing the existing 15” sewer with 30” sewer along Detroit Street (from Hearst Avenue to Flood Avenue)

2. Surface drainage improvements at 2 intersections on Foerster Street (@Joost Avenue and @Mangels Avenue)

  • Constructing 2 raised crosswalks to reduce surface flows that cross Foerster Street
  • Installing associated curb ramps to maintain pedestrian and ADA accessibility
  • Installing catch basins to improve surface drainage

3. Paving restoration following the construction of sewer and drainage improvements.
