If you are traveling northbound on 101 and take the Third Street exit, you enter the Bayview. Residents there want everyone to recognize the area for its beauty and charm, so the Bayview Hill Neighborhood Association, HOK Architects, and SF Public Works have joined forces to come up with visual elements and landscaping that will beautify and identify the entrance to the Bayview neighborhood.
Together, these partners are leading a public visioning process and design effort to identify and beautify the entrance to the Bayview neighborhood. The Bayview encompasses some of San Francisco’s premier ecological and cultural landmarks including Bayview Hill, a natural hill that sits at the southeast entrance to San Francisco. They have been working closely with the Bayview community to develop a unified vision for the neighborhood and will develop a gateway pilot site that will highlight the cultural richness of this area. This important project will not only provide a long-awaited gateway for this historically neglected community, but it will also help galvanize the effort to tie together wider open space planning goals and green corridor efforts.
The Bayview Hill Neighborhood Association, HOK and San Francisco Public Works have hosted several community meetings to introduce plans, gather input from neighbors, and finalize a unified vision for the project. The project was well received and many people expressed interest in exploring partnership opportunities for implementation and maintenance.
The group is now soliciting input from the wider Bayview community. They will be collecting materials for the mosaic and asking for community volunteers. Please check out their website to learn more about opportunities to get involved.
