Potrero Yard Modernization Project — January 2024 Update
► Environmental and Entitlements Update
Last Thursday, January 11, 2024, the Potrero Yard Modernization Project reached a major milestone at the SF Planning Commission as the commission voted unanimously to both certify the Final Environmental Impact Report under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and recommend that the Board of Supervisors approve legislative amendments to the General Plan, Planning Code and Zoning Map to enable development of the Project. You can view the presentations from SF Planning and the SFMTA/PNC team about the Project or watch a video of the meeting. The Project was items 11 and 12a–12e on the agenda.
The commissioners noted the robust community participation and support for the Project which began in 2018 and continues to this day. More than 20 letters were submitted in support of the Project from community members, organizations, and local businesses.
The legislation will now proceed to the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Transportation Committee and then to the full Board of Supervisors.
