Document Description
The San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority's Board of Directors (Board) approved the San Francisquito Creek Flood Reduction, Ecosystem Restoration, and Recreation Project, San Francisco Bay to Highway 101 (Project) by Resolution Number 13-07-25 on July 25, 2013. The Project as approved by the Board is described as follows. The project would construct flood reduction facilities along an approximately 1.5-mile stretch of San Francisquito Creek from East Bayshore Road to the San Francisco Bay. The Project would protect properties and infrastructure between East Bayshore Road and the San Francisco Bay from San Francisquito Creek (Creek) Flows result from 100-year fluvial flood flows occurring at the same time as a 100-year tide that includes projected sea level rise through 2067; accommodate future flood protection measures that might be constructed upstream of the Project; enhance habitat along the Project reach, particularly habitat for threatened and endangered species; enhance recreation uses; and minimize operation and maintenance requirements. The project would consist of the following major elements: An overflow terrace at marsh elevation adjacent to the Baylands Preserve. Levee setback and improvements to widen the channel and increase levee height and stability between East Palo Alto and the Palo Alto Golf Course. Floodwalls in the upper reach downstream of East Bayshore Road. Extension of Friendship Bridge via a boardwalk across new marshland within the widened channel. The majority of the Project elements would occur on properties in Palo Alto and East Palo Alto and owned by the City of Palo Alto; or within Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) or San Mateo County rights-of-way.
