St. John’s is blessed with a beautiful campus which has a treacherously steep entrance and exit, making our campus less accessible, hospitable, and safe for parishioners and the broader community. The Gateway Project addresses these long-held concerns. It will create a new entrance or ‘gateway’ to our church campus. It entails installing a prefabricated concrete bridge from Thornhill Drive over Temescal Creek, which runs alongside the north edge of the church property, creating a new driveway and turning circle and upgrading our parking, landscaping, and outdoor lighting. The proposed new entrance will greatly improve traffic safety for school children and residents in our neighborhood and enhance our visibility and accessibility for both the parish and the greater community. The City of Oakland, neighborhood groups, and the local community have expressed strong support for The Gateway Project.
