Rethinking Sunset Boulevard

The SFPUC wants to know how Sunset Boulevard can work better for you. Wide streets with large landscaped areas provide many opportunities for improving stormwater management in the area. We need your help to identify the community’s priorities for improving the local landscape, such as habitat enhancement, trail and transit access, educational opportunities, and pedestrian amenities.
Tune in for more information on the Sunset Boulevard Greenway’s first public workshop coming late-July 2013 where you can learn more and provide input! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Improving Our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community
The Sunset Boulevard Greenway will feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include rain gardens to naturally capture stormwater and allow it to soak into the landscape before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer, which overwhelms the system and may result in neighborhood flooding. Proposed rain gardens along Sunset Boulevard can improve stormwater management for more than 20 acres of paved surfaces in the Sunset District.
