DALY CITY TO CONDUCT COMMUNITY MEETINGS TO REVIEW VISTA GRANDE DRAINAGE BASIN OPTIONS

Daly City, CA – The City of Daly City will be conducting two Public Meetings to review the Draft Vista Grande Alternatives Analysis – Alternatives Evaluation Report. The draft report evaluates several alternatives in managing storm water in the northwest portion of Daly City and Unincorporated San Mateo County.

“This is an important undertaking affecting a number or our residents that have experienced flooding in the past,” says Patricia Martel, City Manager. “We want to make sure that we can manage our storm water in an environmentally conscious way.”

The meetings will be held at 7:00 p.m. on February 21, 2008 in the City Council Chamber at City Hall, 333-90th Street, Daly City, and at 7:00 p.m. on February 26, 2008 in the Larcombe Clubhouse, Westlake Park, 99 Lake Merced Boulevard, Daly City.

The program recommended in the draft plan includes construction of a new storm water tunnel, construction of a detention basin in Westlake Park, and potential for treatment wetlands in San Francisco to treat stormwater for diversion to Lake Merced. The Draft Vista Grande Drainage Basin Alternatives Evaluation Report will be available for public review on February 6, 2008 on the Daly City website at www.dalycity.org, or at the Westlake, Serramonte and John Daly Libraries.

“The public is encouraged to attend,” says Patricia Martel, City Manager. “At a cost of $145 million to $200 million, this is the largest public works project Daly City has ever undertaken.”
