ON April 2, 2024, Congressman Kevin Mullin presented the Daly City with two grant awards totaling almost $2 million. Congressman Mullin is an advocate for Daly City, and the community will benefit from these grants that will help fund two important projects:

  • City of Daly City: Serramonte Street Resurfacing Project – $1,000,000

The Serramonte Street Resurfacing Project ($1.6 million estimated cost) will resurface a segment of Serramonte Boulevard, install ADA ramps, and implement striping enhancements over a heavily traveled part of Serramonte Boulevard which enables access to Serramonte Center — a mall containing over 1.1 million square feet of retail space that is a major economic driver of the local economy and attracts customers from all over the city and surrounding area.

  • City of Daly City: Vista Grande Drainage Basin Improvement Project – $959,752

The Vista Grande Project is the largest public works infrastructure project in the history of Daly City ($150 million estimated cost), and it is critical to the future of the community. This is a project that will bring multiple benefits to the region including jobs, improved stormwater treatment, flood management, additional drinking water sources, and protection of the environment.

Both projects are anticipated to begin by the summer of 2025.

“On behalf of the community, I want to extend my gratitude to Congressman Mullin for his partnership and prioritization of bipartisan federal government funding to support two significant projects,” said Mayor Juslyn C. Manalo. “The Serramonte Street Resurfacing Project and Vista Grande Drainage Basin Improvement Project are critical projects that will enhance the quality of life in Daly City.”

“Delivering for my district is my primary goal as a Member of Congress and I was incredibly pleased to bring home $14.36 million in federal funding for local communities, including almost $2 million for Daly City. These community projects will have widespread environmental and economic benefits including improving stormwater and flood protection, as well as roadway safety enhancements for those visiting a major regional shopping center,” said U.S. Rep. Kevin Mullin (CA-15).
