Blog Thursday 10/17: Support 803 homes in South San Francisco!

Oct. 14, 2019

This coming Thursday, October 17th at 7pm, the South San Francisco Planning Commission will be voting on a mixed-use development on a former San Francisco Public Utilities Commission site.

The meeting will be held at the Municipal Services Building, Council Chambers, 33 Arroyo Drive, South San Francisco 94080.  Please join us in voicing support for this important project.

The project is a rare opportunity to build much-needed homes and resources for the community on public land, located at 1501 Mission Road.  The development is currently slated to include:

  • 803 homes, 161 of which will be designated as affordable
  • A ~8,300 sqft childcare facility
  • A 12,992 SF commercial retail space
  • A one-acre public park, and related infrastructure

Renderings and more detail on the project are available at

This project is located close to El Camino Real transit routes, is fairly close to the South San Francisco BART station, and is within a couple miles of many local biotech, home improvement, and airport-related jobs.

The housing provided by this development is essential as the community grows alongside large local employers like Genentech — who are currently making room to as much as double their workforce.

Please join us at the meeting to support this project, and please also reach out to the Planning Commission by email, particularly if you can’t attend in person:

See you on Thursday!
