Background History

The Southeast Community Facility (SECF) was established by the City as a mitigation measure in return for the Bayview Hunters Point (BVHP) community’s acceptance of the Southeast Water Treatment Plant in the midst of their neighborhood.  The operation of the SECF is intended to further the gainful employment of residents in the BVHP community; create opportunities for them to participate in educational programs; establish and expand opportunities for children’s daycare; and provide information and resources for the enhancement and growth of the community as a whole.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission was established in 1987 by ordinance of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.  The members of the Commission are appointed and serve under the leadership of the Mayor.  The purpose of the Commission is to review and provide guidance regarding the operations of the SECF and other facilities under its jurisdiction.  Their goal is to promote and advocate special services for the improvement of the general economic, health, safety and welfare of residents in the southeastern sector of the City.  The SECF Commission continues to maintain good relations with its residents, community groups, government officials and other neighborhoods in the City.
