3.         2008.0081E                                                                             (D. JAIN: (415) 575-9051)

950 Mason Street – Fairmont Hotel Project - Certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report -  The project site is located at 950 Mason Street (Assessor’s Block 0244, Lot 001). The proposed project includes: 1) renovation of portions of the landmark 1906 Fairmont Hotel building (City Landmark # 185), including consolidation of up to 60 hotel rooms; 2) reconfiguration of some existing hotel uses; 3) demolition of the 1961 23-story Fairmont Hotel tower above the five-story podium; and 4) construction of a new 160–unit, 26-story residential tower and five-story midrise residential component, both above a five-story podium, on the site of the existing hotel tower and podium (proposed to be demolished). The proposed project would include below-grade parking for about 350 vehicles.  The 113,400-square-foot project site is located in an RM-4 (Residential Mixed-High Density) Use District and the Nob Hill Special Use District (SUD), and in 200-E, 300-E and 320-E Height and Bulk Districts.  The proposed project would require Conditional Use (CU) authorization for height and bulk and for a Planned Unit Development (PUD) including exceptions to the 25 percent rear yard requirement, as well as require Planning Commission approval under the “Large Tourist Hotel Conversion Ordinance,” Administrative Code 41F.3(f), among other approvals. The proposed exterior changes to the historic 1906 Fairmont Hotel building would also require a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Historic Preservation Commission. The Draft EIR found that implementation of the proposed project would result in a significant unavoidable environmental impact on cultural resources, related to demolition of the Tonga Room, which has been identified as a historic resource under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

NOTE: The action for this item falls under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Planning Commission.

Preliminary Recommendation: Certify the Final Environmental Impact Report.

6.             Commission Comments/Questions

Commissioner Sugaya:

At last Thursdays’ hearing, I made a comment regarding TipTop Market, that was -- let me put it in context. Commissioner Borden was in the process of saying what her feelings were about the project, and in summing up, she made a comment that there might be other opportunities to make money at the store, something else could be sold in the store, and she mentioned perhaps clothing, and I think kind of shrug it off as something that probably was not possible. In that context, I made a comment, which I learned on Monday from Supervisor Kim was taken as being very insensitive to the Tenderloin Community, and for that, I' m very, very sorry. It was not meant to be taken in that regard, and the comment was at that time directed to the project sponsor of TipTop Market, who is seeking a conditional use permit, so it was not intended to be addressed to the larger community, but it has been taken that way. Subsequently, I have talked to the owner of the market -- the tiptop market, to make sure that what I said was not offensive to him. He assured me that it was not, and he volunteered to come here today if needed, but I told him I did not think that was necessary and that I think people can take my word that he did not have a problem. I also then subsequently called and talked to Mr. Buckley at the central city  collaborative. He did say that members of the collaborative were interested in having a meeting with me, and we are currently in the process of setting that up, which I assume will be fairly shortly. To the greater community and especially the Tenderloin community and to Supervisor Kim, I do truly apologize for making that comment.

Commissioner Antonini:

Part of our general correspondence was a letter from the Jones Hall Law Firm, I believe directed to Michael Yarney, January 21, 2011, which is a restatement of infrastructure – proposed infrastructure refinancing, I believe it is available online, but I would like to see if we can get a hard copy of that. I think there was just the one copy. I do not remember receiving a is for today. I think that is an important issue and one I would like to look at a little bit more, It is a fairly long document to print out. Also want to thank SFPUC, I had a meeting with them I think the 12th of January, very productive meeting regards to the item we will be considering later on our agenda, and I met with Peter from SFMTA and we went over some very interesting plans for different parts of the City, and I thank him for taking the time, and I think we will be talking about those in greater detail in the weeks and months that follow.

Commissioner Moore:

I would like to spend a moment suggesting something to the Commissioners after receiving an e-mail regarding CEQA training. CEQA training is, for me, personally, an issue which is part of renewing my professional license. It takes time, but given or rendered by the proper people, that allows me to get the professional credits, given the organization that is doing it. While I am open for staff to give the training to the Commissioners, I would like to suggest that we perhaps stepped it up so that staff or a number of people who need the same training could get the credits from outside organizations like the Association of Environmental Professionals or the American Planning Association or the American Institute of Certified Planners to give this lesson to the Commissioners with staff being present, so that indeed, it is a win-win, for all of us who need to spend additional time. I' m not getting any discussion about CEQA. I believe it is in flux as being discussed that an outside organization might provide as training, which leaves those issues in flux, and we can acknowledge them. I think it would be better training, and it would help everybody in a broader way. That is just a suggestion on my part. I' m not representing any professional group which is doing this. I' m just suggesting taking a step further.

Commissioner Sugaya:   I believe it is in this current issue of the "Business Times" -- there is a small article mentioning that there was a city study done that said that ParkMerced was financially unfeasible. The problem with that paragraph’s little note, was that it was not referenced. It did not say whether it was an official City of San Francisco study or if it was done by someone independently or whatever. It had no references or anything, so I do not know what they were referring to. It made it sound like it was an independent study apart from the project sponsor. Maybe staff could look into that.

 

·         Inquiries/Announcements.  Without discussion, at this time Commissioners may make announcements or inquiries of staff regarding various matters of interest to the Commissioner(s).

·         Future Meetings/Agendas.  At this time, the Commission may discuss and take action to set the date of a Special Meeting and/or determine those items that could be placed on the agenda of the next meeting and other future meetings of the Planning Commission.

8.         Review of Past Week’s Events at the Board of Supervisors, Board of Appeals, and Historic Preservation Commission.

 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS:

For the Board hearings this week, Finance Committee  met and discussed the Rincon Hill and the Mission Financing district. You did consider it the enabling legislation on July 22, 2010. You heard an ordinance that would create an area plan infrastructure finance committee to advise the City on infrastructure finance districts. You recommend approval knowing that it would be the first pilot program proposed. You ask that the Board seek additional funding to extend the pilot program to include it for the Eastern Neighborhood and ask that the City include additional study on the long- term effects for the general plan. The area plan infrastructure finance committee has been established. The Planning Department is one of the members of the Committee and is committed to ensuring that the concerns of the Commission are fairly considered. This week was an informational hearing at the Land Use Committee, and no action was taken. As far as the full Board, they did consider the appointment and reappointment of members of the Preservation Commission. On Tuesday, the Board approved appointments. All three members were approved. Also, there were a couple of introductions I would like to mention. Supervisor Winner requested a hearing on the impact of Historic Preservation policies on other major policy goals and the need to adopt legislation to ensure that policies are achieved. Supervisor Farrell introduce an amended ordinance to allow new restaurants not defined as formula retail and to require the Planning Commission to consider date time usage on the block when approving a new restaurant. Lastly, several supervisors introduced a resolution opposing current proposed changes to the California State budget to eliminate Redevelopment Agencies. 

BOARD OF APPEALS:

As far as the Board of Appeals, Zoning Administrator Scott Sanchez informed me that although the  Board met, they did not consider any items pertinent to your Commission. Those are the only things I have to report for board of appeals.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION:

Last week, you did not get an update on the Historic Preservation Commission, but this week, you will for the hearing that was held last week.  Some items of interest to this Commission would be their request for review and comment to some resolution and findings recommended to approve nominations for the South San Francisco Opera House, and 3232 Pacific Avenue, the Jillian Labor House. Both of those motions were adopted. Finally, there was a request for appropriateness to replace ground floor store fronts installing windows and signs for the commercial tenant and civic center historic district.  Those will just the highlights of that hearing.

 

E.         GENERAL PUBLIC COMMENT – 15 MINUTES

 

At this time, members of the public may address the Commission on items of interest to the public that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Commission except agenda items.  With respect to agenda items, your opportunity to address the Commission will be afforded when the item is reached in the meeting.  Each member of the public may address the Commission for up to three minutes.

 

None

 

F.         PUBLIC COMMENT ON AGENDA ITEMS WHERE THE PUBLIC HEARING HAS BEEN CLOSED

 

            At this time, members of the public who wish to address the Commission on agenda items that have already been reviewed in a public hearing at which members of the public were allowed to testify and the public hearing has been closed, must do so at this time.  Each member of the public may address the Commission for up to three minutes.

9.         2005.0161E                                                                            (C. KERN: (415) 575-9037)

            CALAVERAS DAM REPLACEMENT PROJECT - Certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report - The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is proposing to implement the Calaveras Dam Replacement Project (CDRP) to meet WSIP levels of service for delivery reliability, seismic reliability and water quality. Since 2001, the SFPUC has operated Calaveras Reservoir at a reduced capacity of approximately 38,100 acre-feet under order of the California Department of Water Resources Division of Safety of Dams (DSOD) due to seismic safety concerns. The replacement dam would be the same height as the existing dam (completed in 1925) and would restore the capacity of Calaveras Reservoir to its pre-2001 DSOD restricted level of 96,850 acre-feet. The CDRP is located on Calaveras Creek in the Diablo Mountain Range in Alameda County, approximately 12 miles south of the City of Pleasanton and 7.5 miles east of the City of Fremont. Calaveras Reservoir straddles the border between Alameda and Santa Clara Counties.

Preliminary Recommendation: Certify the Environmental Impact Report

NOTE: The public hearing on the Draft EIR is closed. The public comment period for the Draft EIR ended on December 21, 2009. The Planning Commission does not conduct public review of Final EIRs.
