Balboa Park Station Community Advisory Committee

Overview

The Balboa Park Community Advisory Committee advises a number of public agencies making improvements to the Balboa Park Station area.

What We Do

The Balboa Park Community Advisory Committee was established through Board of Supervisors legislation enacted on March 5, 2012, sponsored by Supervisor John Avalos (District 11).  The committee is responsible for advising a number of public agencies making improvements to the Balboa Park Station area.  These agencies include the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, the San Francisco Planning Department, the Department of Public Works (DPW), the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).  The BPCAC will meet periodically to provide feedback and ensure that staff are delivering improvements that are timely and of high benefit to the community.

 

PURPOSE

  • Provide input and community oversight on the prioritization and implementation of the transportation and other public improvements
  • Ensure balanced implementation of the plans for the Balboa Park Station Area, guide prioritization, and oversee timely progress of public improvement projects.
  • Relay information between public agencies and community stakeholders.
  • Provide a forum for coordination, information-sharing, and collaboration between community, transportation agencies, and developers.
  • Monitor the progress of the San Francisco Municipal Tranportation Agency (SFMTA), the Bay Area Rapid Tranist District (BART), the Transportation Authority, the Department of Public Works (DPW), the San Francisco Planning Department and California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in advancing plans and public improvement projects; track project development responsibilities and timelines, collaborate with transportation agencies
