      From the latest update we had was work was to begin possibly in July as the developer moves forward with retail only, no housing. We do have an email out to the developer to see if this might still be true and we will update our website once we learn more.
      Thank you.

    Once again, SSF residents earn a civic apology for the courtesies afforded construction crews and developers (and their investors) by the city – at the expense of significant inconvenience to those residents.

    Not a mention of an apology for additions to the civic tax burden for services to the occupants of the new residential and commercial construction.

    South Airport & Gateway Boulevards continue to experience substantial traffic delays due to the (unplanned and badly-organized) construction at the San Bruno Canal bridge. Meanwhile, drivers persist in running red-lights and cruising through stops because of the unwarranted number and punishing duration of traffic-halts along the thoroughfares used by people to get from one part of SSF to another.
