The Islais Creek facility will include a bus yard to house 184 vehicles, a building to wash and maintain the buses, and administrative offices, according to Muni officials.

The facility is being built on 8.4 acres of city-owned land at 1301 Cesar Chavez St. Construction began in March and is expected to wrap up in July 2012.

As part of the project, the agency is creating a space along the Islais Creek shoreline for public access that will include a small pedestrian bridge and public art. The space will also foster local wetlands to allow colonization by native plant and animal life, according to Muni officials.

Today’s meeting is scheduled to run from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will take place at the Muni Metro East Maintenance facility, located in Room 235 at 601 25th St.
