B.         COMMISSIONERS’ QUESTIONS AND MATTERS

 

3.         Commission Comments/Questions

·         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.

 

Commissioner Antonini:

I have had a few meetings in the last week with certain individuals about various projects coming up. One of them is with neighbors at 899 Valencia; I believe that is on our calendar for next week.  I also met with representatives of 55 Laguna regarding some modifications.  It will be on calendar in 2 or 3 weeks.  I also had meetings with representatives of 4436 Pleasant, as well as with neighbors involved in 1945 Hyde. Those are the meetings I had last week.

Commissioner Miguel:  

Although I was out last week with illness, I did watch the entire Commission meeting on TV. I have also had meetings regarding CPMC and Chase Bank. I am sure all of the commissioners read the article in the paper regarding Walgreens. I referred to them as a grocery store, not a retail pharmacy, I would be really interested if I see any official papers come in for Walgreens or CVS as a retail pharmacy. I would be very tempted to throw them out the window as being inaccurate.

Commissioner Fong:

I just want to mention that a large event is happening in San Francisco next week called Powow.
It does not have anything to do with planning, but it does have a lot to do with the future of San Francisco. This brings 5500 international buyers into San Francisco. They are folks who bring wholesale buying into the United States. It should be good for the City. Everybody who represents San Francisco will have an opportunity to be a host member of the City.

Commissioner Sugaya:

To follow-up Commissioner Miguel – the Powell Street and Sutter Walgreens are in the process of restocking and re- shelving the back of those stores to have food items and full dairy items.

Commissioner Olague:

I was going to ask if the City can look into what we can do with that situation. We have seen that a lot with formula retailers such as with 7-11.  This type of retailer is going into certain neighborhoods that have a certain number of mom and pop stores or family-owned groceries or prepared food [services], and little restaurants. There is a concern that the impact could be great on those kinds of businesses.  I was wondering if it is something that we could prohibit from happening, or limit the square footage of certain kinds of food or products.  It was raised before. I think we should calendar it. We will calendar it for July 7 as an item.

Commissioner Moore:

I support what she was suggesting.  The question is whether or not the definition of formula retail needs to be re-defined or tied up. I do believe that the policy involved, while it is a forward-looking policy in the protection of the essence of the City being small-scale retail, needs specific protection, in specific parts of the City. You could make that the theme of our special meeting. I think that would be fantastic.

Commissioner Sugaya:

I would like to request if we could have a short staff memo on the Masonic Auditorium.  It does not have to be calendared. In a recent court case it is my understanding that the environmental report needs to be redone if they move forward with their current plans. The other part of the court decision seems to invalidate that use at the moment; it is about the extension of the commercial district of a ¼ of a mile. If we could get an interpretation of that, that would be great.

Commissioner Moore:

Hand in hand with that, is the question of whether the interior of that particular facility is to be preserved; whether it is completely untouched?  It is absolutely magnificent and the Historic Preservation Commission at the time when this project was before them did have the time to look at that. This is the time to look at all issues.

 

C.         DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

4.         Director’s Announcements

           

Director Rahaim:

A couple of announcements:  I wanted to make mention of an upcoming meeting on the Market Street Project. This is a project that will look at the design of Market Street itself. The Department of Public Works is managing that with the assistance of the Transportation Authority and the MTA. We are in the process of gathering public comment. This is Tuesday the 24th - next week. You are all welcome to come. This will move into concept alternatives next year.

I just wanted to give you a piece of news regarding our new web site offering the property confirmation map that was just unveiled less than a month ago. Staff gave me statistics on the number of hits. It is getting an unbelievable amount of views. We are getting 27,000 hits a day on the web site. There is a lot of interest. Hopefully, it is providing a service to the public. 27,000 hits a day is a staggering number. I never would have imagined that large of a number of hits on the website. I think that is it for me.

 

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

 

LAND USE COMMITTEE:

§         BF various Parkmerced. This week the hearing at the land use committee focused on updates to the draft Development Agreement and technical amendments to the Planning Code ordinance.  There was little discussion.  After taking public comment and accepting the proposed amendments to the documents, the hearing was continued without action.  The Committee will consider action on the Parkmerced ordinances at a special Land Use Committee hearing scheduled for 9:00am on Tuesday, May 24.  At its full Board hearing next Tuesday, the Board will not only consider the EIR Appeal-- but also if the EIR is upheld, the Board will go on to consider all of the actions related to the Parkmerced project.

§         Housing Element.  At Monday's Land Use Committee hearing, the Board considered the draft Housing Element.   For this item, the     Board has already heard the appeal of the EIR and upheld the CEQA      document with an 8-3 vote.  Therefore this week the Land Use Committee was able to take action on the draft Housing Element (HE).  The Committee heard public  comment that was largely consistent with comments made at the  Planning Commission hearing (some expressed concern that adoption of the housing element would result in a re-zoning of RH districts - staff clarified that this is not part of the housing element).  After public comment the Committee thanked staff for their work, asked staff to respond to public comments and clarify the effect of the Housing Element, and expressed support for the Housing Element; the Committee voted unanimously to recommend adoption of the Housing Element to the full Board.  The Board is scheduled to vote on the HE at next Tuesday's meeting.

FULL BOARD OF SUPERVISORS:

§         New Legislation for 800 Presidio.  Commissioners, on April 28th, 2011 you heard legislation related to a proposed project titled the “Booker T. Washington Community Services Mixed Use Center.”  At that time you took actions approving the project with about 50 units of housing (including 24 low income units and 24 transitional housing units for youth at risk), a community center and a gym within a 55’ height limit.  Since your action two new pieces of legislation have been introduced at the Board.  The first, was introduced by Supervisor Farrell.  It is an amendment to his original legislation for the project.  This new version would limit the height to 45’ [BF110116, version 2].  The second piece of legislation was introduced by Supervisors Mirkarimi, Mar, and Avalos [BF 110658].  This second, proposed Ordinance would allow a 55’ building-- consistent with the project you have approved.  Since you have already considered this project, the Board has calendared both versions of the legislation without the typical 90-day wait.  Currently the Ordinances are scheduled for a June 6th hearing before the Board’s Land Use Committee.

§         New hearing request.  Title:  Hearing on the San Francisco Administrative Code Article 36 regarding the Interagency Plan Implementation Committee Annual Progress Report and San Francisco Planning Code Section 409 regarding the Development Impact Fee Report.  Sponsors:  Eric Mar 

INTRODUCTIONS: 

·         110116 Planning Code - Zoning Map - Presidio-Sutter Special Use District - 800 Presidio Avenue.  Ordinance amending the San Francisco Planning Code by adding Section 259.53 to: 1) establish the Presidio-Sutter Special Use District for property located at 800 Presidio Avenue (Assessor's Block No. 1073, Lot No. 13); 2) amend Sheet HT03 of the Zoning Map to change the Height and Bulk District from 40-X to 45-X; and 3) amend Sheet SU-03 of the Zoning Map to reflect the boundaries of the Presidio-Sutter Special Use District; adopting findings, including environmental findings, Section 302 findings, and findings of consistency with the General Plan and the Priority Policies of Planning Code Section 101.1.  Mark Farrell, Eric Mar, Ross Mirkarimi

·         110482 Planning Code - Miscellaneous Technical Amendments.  Ordinance amending the San Francisco Planning Code to: 1) correct clerical errors, make language revisions and update Sections 121.2, 134, 136.1, 142, 185, 201, 204.1, 204.2, 205, 205.1, 205.3, 207.2, 209.3, 217, 243, 303, 309, 311, 312, 317, 602.25, 602.26, 607.1, and various Sections and Tables in Articles 7 and 8; and 2) adopting findings, including findings under the California Environmental Quality Act, Planning Code Section 302 findings, and findings of consistency with the General Plan and Planning Code Section 101.1.  Planning Commission.

Board of Appeals:

Kelley Amdur, I am the Acting Zoning Administrator for today and tomorrow. I have a very brief report from the Board of Appeals hearing last night. There was one signed case being heard at 926 Howard.  The appeal was denied. This was an appeal from Foster Interstate Media and the Department's permit was upheld.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION:

Historic Preservation Committee did meet yesterday. There are three items I would like to bring to your attention. One is was a proposal for the Administrative Certificate of Appropriateness -- the Commission approved that with some modifications:  they would allow the administrative approval of this if the property has less than 20% of the façade being modified that would require the Certificate of Appropriateness within the Department in a five-year period. The “issue” of the Administrative Certificate of Appropriateness would have to come back to the Commission within a year. The Commission also had a Historic Resource Survey. There was some discussion. They did not take action. They continued the item to the next meeting on June 1.  There was also a hearing on the nomination of the North Beach library to the National Registry of Historic Places. The Commission just passed a motion that they are informing them that they cannot reach consensus either way on the nomination. They could not decide to nominate it or not, so they sent it forward without support either way.
