Job Creation and Training
A primary goal of the Proposed Project is to provide economic opportunities for current and future Visitacion Valley residents and businesses to take part in the rebuilding and revitalization of the community, and the generation of temporary and permanent jobs by the Proposed Project is a key component.
During the demolition and remediation phases of the Proposed Project, a number of environmental and construction jobs would be available over several years. San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and UPC, in partnership with City Build, are developing a comprehensive workforce program to ensure local residents have access to these temporary jobs. City Build is a program of the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development's Workforce Development Division that provides recruiting, training and placement services to job seekers, employers and contractors working in San Francisco's construction industry.
City Build has partnered with several organizations, such as the Anders and Anders Foundation, a community-based organization located in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood, to begin recruitment and training for potential job opportunities generated by the VVTOD Project and other developments in the southeast quadrant of the city. See below for contact information.
Once built out, the proposed development would provide for permanent jobs directly and indirectly associated with future grocery store, restaurants, and other retail shops, and housing operations, as well as professional and community office-type jobs in the renovated Historic Office Building. These jobs would increase employment opportunities for local residents, particularly jobs that minimize commute distances.
