Check out our video:
Potrero Gateway Loop is a community initiative to improve the neglected space around 101 and under the freeway between San Bruno, Vermont, 17th and 18th streets. Major design goals are to improve the safety, cleanliness and usability of the open space. The project is a partnership between the community and different state and local agencies including Caltrans, Department of Public Works (DPW) and SF Parks Alliance. SF Parks Alliance is the fiscal sponsor of the project.
Beginning in 2007, with a petition to add a sound wall to San Bruno Avenue, a MUNA committee of neighbors from San Bruno and Mariposa reached out to city agencies for help. In 2010, after finding no help for a sound wall, the committee decided to approach the problem using re-landscaping for safety, sound control and beauty. In early 2012 neighbors from the 400 block of Vermont joined the project forming the Potrero Gateway Loop steering committee. The project raised $15,000 and retained the services of Bionic, a San Francisco based landscape architecture firm.
Beginning in February 2013, the steering committee worked with broader community and Bionic to conduct three community design meetings. The final outcome of this process was a comprehensive conceptual design for the project which is now being used to win funding and sponsorships from the city, local businesses and other state programs.
