CENTENNIAL PLAZA IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
In November 2022, the Foundation awarded a $500,000 strategic grant to the City of San Bruno to support the Centennial Plaza Improvement Project in downtown San Bruno. As part of its efforts to enhance and beautify San Mateo Avenue, the City plans to renovate Centennial Plaza and create a welcoming gathering space for outdoor dining, entertainment, and community events.
With the assistance of Callander Associates Landscape Architecture, the City has developed plans to transform Centennial Plaza, which is located at the intersection of Jenevein Avenue and San Mateo Avenue, from a currently underutilized, roped-off site to a landscaped focal point for activity in the downtown core. The conceptual design includes a flexible plaza area, a small stage, café-style seating, picnic tables, a play area, festoon lighting, and landscaping, among other features.
Pending further approvals from the San Bruno City Council, the Centennial Plaza Improvement Project should proceed to the construction documents development stage in early 2023, with construction targeted to begin in the late summer or early fall and to be completed in early 2024.
