Mayor Breaks Ground on Newcomb Improvement Project
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today broke ground on the Newcomb Avenue Streetscape Model Block Improvement Project, a first of its kind project on the 1700 block of Newcomb Avenue in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood to transform the street into one of the most sustainable streets in the City. The pilot streetscape improvement project will replace significant areas of concrete with new landscaping, street trees, introduce stormwater planters and permeable pavers on this flood prone street to allow rainwater to permeate into the ground.
“San Francisco continues to be at the forefront with innovative projects and programs that are transforming our streets and public spaces,” said Mayor Lee. “The Newcomb Avenue Streetscape Model Block Improvement Project is an investment that will transform and create one of the greenest and most sustainable streets in San Francisco and provide us with information and feedback we will need to help us improve streets citywide.” Read more.
