Phase Three Outreach Events: Visitacion Valley and Portola Community Based Transportation Plan
During the project’s early outreach we got a lot of input from Visitacion Valley and Portola communities. We turned this input into a series of potential projects across the community and went back to the community to find out what we got right, what we got wrong and what we missed altogether. During our second phase of outreach in summer 2022, we shared a map of potential projects in Vis Valley and Portola. We reached over 1,000 residents and collected almost 300 surveys and 250 additional written comments. We used what we learned from the second phase of outreach to rework our projects to better reflect community voices, needs, challenges and values.
Based on all of our community engagement and feedback, we developed the Draft Plan, which includes:
- Over $25 million in infrastructure projects across Visitacion Valley & Portola
- A concept design for Mansell Street that proposes transforming the median into a community open space
- Policy recommendations for other community needs and challenges outside the scope of the Visitacion Valley and Portola Community project
The graphic below shows the final list of projects proposed in the Draft Plan.
In our final phase of outreach, we are asking residents to help us prioritize the order in which we will build these projects. Your input will determine which projects we will build first. Please rank these projects in our survey. The survey closes at the end of January 2023
