Deferred Projects

Project Name Description
REC – Recreation & Parks Roads  REC is responsible for all roadways within Golden Gate Park, Lincoln Park, McLaren Park and Balboa Park, and does not have a dedicated funding source to maintain them. REC continues to look for projects with funding opportunities that can improve the roadway infrastructure and enhance parks accessibility, such as the Mansell Streetscape Improvement Project in collaboration with SFMTA within McLaren Park.
The estimated roadways backlog is approximately $77.5 million, of which nearly $70 million  is within Golden Gate Park.
ARTS – African American Art & Culture
Complex Retrofit & Renovation
A facility assessment for the African American Arts and Culture Complex (AAACC) was completed in January 2020. AAACC received an SHR rating of 4. A renovation plan to improve the building to an SHR rating of 3 includes a structural retrofit; roof replacement and insulation; repairing exterior walls; replacement of all skylights, exterior doors, windows, louvers, interior doors; ADA barrier removal; a new fire alarm system; code required HVAC; new electrical switchgear, and new EV charging stations.
The cost estimate for this project is $15 million.
ARTS – SOMArts Cultural Center Retrofit & Renovation A facility assessment for the SOMArts Cultural Center (SOMArts) was completed in March 2019. SOMArts received an SHR rating of 4. A repair plan to bring the building to an SHR rating of 3 includes structural retrofit; partial exterior cladding replacement; limited replacement of exterior doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, lighting; replacement of HVAC system; minor roof and gutter repairs; new fire water connection and new double detector check valve; additional electrical outlets per code to address safety issues; and partial sitework replacement (paving, landscaping and fencing).
The cost estimate for this project is $15.5 million.
LIB – Main Library Seismic Moat and Joint Initial exploration and design work were accomplished on the seismic moat, working with Public Works architects and engineers.  In the meantime, the moat covers have remained stable enough that minor repairs are maintaining the covers safely for the time being.  It is believed safe to defer this project temporarily due to the fiscal challenges presented by COVID-19.
CCSF – Districtwide Projects CCSF has identified several projects that have been deferred due to lack of funding: the renovation and seismic upgrade of Cloud Hall at Ocean Campus, renovation of the Science Building and the Performing Arts Education Center at Ocean Campus, construction of a Performing Arts Education Center, modernization of the Downtown Center and the Evans Center, and an addition to the John Adams Center.
The total budget for CCSF’s deferred projects is $450 million. The College will continue to pursue State funding for deferred projects.
CCSF - Cloud Hall Academic Building Renovation This project will upgrade the building and address seismic safety needs. Elevators will be added to improve accessibility, and both indoor and outdoor student gathering/study spaces will be added at ground level.
SFUSD – Deferrals The unfavorable bidding climate has resulted in the deferral of 17 school site renovation projects, estimated at $508 million, originally slated for completion prior to the next SFUSD G.O. Bond in 2022.
