Yosemite Creek Daylight Plans To Be Revealed At Thursday Meeting

Rendering of the proposed daylighted creek along Wayland Street.

It’s been a long time coming but we will finally get to see the plans for the daylighting of the Upper Yosemite Creek.  On Thursday night (3/23) representatives from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (P.U.C.) will present the plans at a community meeting.  Here are the meeting details:

What:  Upper Yosemite Creek Daylighting Final Concept Open House

Where:  Christ for All Nations Lutheran Church  Downstairs Hall  465 Woolsey Street

When:  Thursday, March 23, 2017  5:00pm to 7:00pm

If you missed the initial planning meetings, you can learn more about the project in our past reporting here or check out the project website here.  In a nutshell though, the Yosemite Creek originates from a natural spring in McLaren Park but most of it has been covered up.  It now flows through the neighborhood and out to the bay by means of a covered pipe under the streets.  The project aims to daylight a portion of the creek along the park boundary with the Portola.  The project has practical benefits such as rain waiter collection but judging from the rendering above, it might be a big visual upgrade for the neighborhood as well.  But you can judge for yourself and give your feedback at the open house this Thursday!
