The PUC Site is a 5.9 acre parcel of land owned by the Successor Agency to the former South San Francisco Redevelopment Agency. The Site is located along Mission Road, just north of the planned Community Civic Campus.
The City is currently in the process of selecting a developer for the PUC Site, in accordance with the State-approved Long Range Property Management Plan for former Redevelopment Agency properties.
After a developer is selected, the selected developer will begin a community engagement process, which will inform a formal application for development. That application will be reviewed by staff, the Design Review Board, the Planning Commission, and considered for approval by the City Council.
A number of questions have been raised about the PUC Site developer selection process, including a potential project's impact on schools, the role of the former Redevelopment Agency, and how the City will evaluate a future project application on the Site. Below are a number of Fact Sheets developed to answer some of these pressing questions.
Developer Wants to Hear From You
AGI Avant and KASA Partners are partnering with leading online community engagement platform coUrbanize to launch a comprehensive, inclusive outreach process for the development of the South San Francisco PUC site. With coUrbanize, AGI-KASA will keep the project on track by efficiently communicating their vision and collecting constructive input online from South San Francisco community members.
AGI-KASA will be hosting a series of public meetings and workshops for the project starting this fall, and will be using the coUrbanize project site for ongoing engagement throughout the process. Community members can find more information about the project, as well as opportunities to share their feedback directly with AGI-KASA, at courb.co/ssfpucdev.
