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 working with AGI Avant and Kasa Partners to develop the PUC Site, in accordance with the State-approved Long Range Property Management Plan for former Redevelopment Agency properties. 

The selected developer is in the process of 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. 

Fact Sheets

A number of questions have been raised about the PUC Site development, 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.
