City Hall News

After seven years of failed negotiations with Caltrans over use of its 2.8-acre property near Interstate 280, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will ask the Board of Supervisors today to authorize taking the land through eminent domain.

The vote, however, is not expected to take place after all. Caltrans has made a last-minute offer to The City, which is now being considered.

The state-owned parcel is part of an 8.5-acre site that Muni has selected to build a state-of-the-art $73.75 million facility to house and maintain low-emission vehicles. The site is located adjacent to Islais Creek in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood.
