1.         2010.0182UT                                                                      (E. LOVEJOY: (415) 575-9026)

Standards for Bird-Safe Buildings - The Planning Commission will consider two items: 1) a draft policy document titled "Standards for Bird-Safe Buildings" and 2) a proposed Ordinance that would amend the Planning Code to implement the proposed policy document. The actions are intended to a) reduce building-related hazards for San Francisco’s resident and migrant bird species; b) establish consistent building standards for creating bird-safe buildings; and c) provide certain exemptions from these requirements. The proposed Ordinance would amend the Planning Code to create a new Section, 139 Bird-Safe Building Standards; and would amend other sections, including Section 145.1; and adopting findings, including environmental findings, Section 302 findings, and findings of consistency with the General Plan and priority policies of Planning Code Section 101.1.

Preliminary Recommendation: Approve a draft Resolution recommending approval of amendments to the Planning Code and adopting a Commission policy document titled "Standards for Bird-Safe Buildings".

Commissioner Miguel:

During this week I met with people regarding 401 Grove, Pier 70, 55 Laguna, and also with AT&T.  I would like to point out that the American Society of Landscape Architects, Northern California Chapter, has awarded the Mission District Streetscape Plan, their 2011 Merit Award. David Alumbaugh and their team should be congratulated.  In addition, this would not have happened in normal circumstances. The plan wouldn't have even started under normal circumstances, because this is the type of planning -- long-range planning basically that is normally funded through the General Fund and there literally isn't any General Fund.  This was because of the Department being able to secure grants to do the work. So the Department deserves -- accolades on both counts.

Commissioner Borden:

A couple of things: a little nitpicky thing about the website, when you go to the website it says click on this week's agendas and it takes you to all the different weeks. It would be easier if we can go directly to the agendas for that week. It's really annoying. That's how I check my agendas, because it usually changes. So that's number one. Number two: I know a member of the public is going to talk about this in public comment and it reminds me of last week. But I would love to have a conversation about the protocol for informing the D.R. Requestors, or people in opposition to a project, making sure that they know in a timely manner if they want to submit things when their deadline is and how many packets they need to provide and how much advance notice they can get. I understand that sometimes dates change and the Department's working primarily with the Project Sponsor. But to the extent possible, if we can get to people we know who have been vocal -- we're not saying that people have not identified themselves as being related to a project must be notified. But, at least for those people who have been identified to be interested in the project, to get notice about deadlines for submitting materials in particular, I think it would be very useful and would prevent continuances and a lot of strife that people feel their issues are not heard adequately. So that is my other thing. And finally: I think that in terms of the last item, I think it would be useful after our closed session to have an open session to talk about the issues, and I know that there's a hesitancy with legal opinions to release them broadly, because you don't want to release legal strategy. You want to protect the city against liability. But I think that in some cases we have to kind of come down on a position and let the public know - so the public knows how to react and behave and pursue other legal action if they want. But I think it's important that we -- that the public knows what the city's position is generally on the various laws that are passed down to the extent that it doesn't expose our legal strategy should we have to go to court.

Commissioner Antonini:

A meeting this week with leaders and residents in my office, and we talked about a couple of issues, one of which was a project which is on the calendar for today but has been continued, and that's 2055 Lombard. But also, a lengthy discussion about another project that will be coming before us in the future, it is my understanding, a bed-and-breakfast at Scott and Lombard, I think. I forget the cross street. It's another issue surrounding emancipated foster youth. But they raised a lot of very serious concerns that were different than was the case with earlier projects at 800 Presidio that we had heard. So I think this is something we have to look at very closely. I know it's on our calendar, I believe, but I will want to have some answers to some of these questions before we hear that.
Commissioner Sugaya:

On the website: for me I think it would be adequate if you just reversed the orders of the agendas and the years starting from 2011 and go down. But the agendas start in January and go down. So if you flipped it, it might be helpful.

President Olague:

I also met with representatives of 55 Laguna this week and AT&T representatives as well. I met with some seniors from District 5, but mostly the Western Addition and it was really interesting. The issue of the census came up and the increasing number of seniors that are going to be here in San Francisco. So a lot of issues concerning their quality of life were raised.  I met with some youth from the South of Market also, who raised issues that they are concerned about as it relates to housing and other issues of low income and homeless youth. Finally: this morning I attended the preview, I guess, or presentation on the expansion of the MOMA, and that was really fun. So it's pretty exciting, really. And I guess we'll be hearing from them on the 23rd of June. So it's just kind of nice to have something really positive going on in the City, because sometimes when we're here we forget that there are really some amazing things that are going on. That happens to be one of them I think. So it was a good, positive presentation. So, it is something to look forward to.

Commissioner Borden:

I did have one more question. I know that Supervisor Wiener is working on legislation dealing with the mobile food cart issue, moving it from the interior of the parks to a kind of like pad that's going to be built more on the exterior.  And I wanted to know if that would be something that would come to us or something that we would look at. Because I know -- if it's still part of the public space but then it's starting to get into the public realm, I wondered if it's something that we would look at, particularly because it has to do with -- also with our eating and drinking in the neighborhood and all this other stuff.

 

D.         DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

9.         Director’s Announcements

 

Director Rahaim:

Last night was the community meeting on the Showplace Square Historic Survey. There were, I think, maybe 25 people in attendance. We had a somewhat lively discussion that is scheduled to go to the Historic Preservation meeting next week at their June 1 meeting for their consideration of adoption of that survey. Two days ago there was the second of two meetings on the Better Market Street Project. This one was at the Whitcomb Hotel under the Department of Public Works.  We are working very closely with them to redesign Market Street. There were about 100 people in attendance at this meeting. It was a good crowd, a good discussion, and that project is completing its first phase, which is a kind of analysis of existing conditions and looking at best practices of other cities. The next couple of months we'll move into the phase of ideas for the future of Market Street, and I also wanted to let you know that I convened a meeting this week. I think I mentioned last time with the wireless providers as well as the City's Department of Technology, the City Attorney's Office and staff about this issue of the wireless facilities and the possibility or the potential of looking at some sort of larger plan or context for those facilities. We had a good discussion. We're pulling together some notes and some ideas from that meeting, and I will reconvene that group in a few weeks to talk about what we think we could be doing in that regard, and what a potential plan might look like; might cost; what the scope of that might be.  And I just wanted to also thank Commissioner Miguel for his comments about the Mission Streetscape Plan. You're right, that plan would not have been possible without grants, because those types of projects are no longer funded through the City's General Fund, and so I appreciate your comments.  And I want to congratulate staff for winning the third award in the last month on our project. We're really pleased about that.

           

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

 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS:

§         BF various Parkmerced. The Land Use Committee held a special hearing on the morning of Tuesday May 24 to consider Parkmerced. At that hearing Board President David Chiu introduced a package of amendments to the Development Agreement intended to strengthen the tenant and rent control protections in the agreement. The highlights include:

o        providing that tenants themselves become 3rd Party beneficiaries of the agreement and are explicitly vested in the agreement and given rights to bring legal action over enforcement of the agreement (as opposed to just the City);

o        instituting an explicit financial penalty, equal to approximately $192million, if the developer challenges the rent control provisions in court, whose proceeds would be used to subsidize the rents of relocated tenants;

o        designating certain blocks of existing garden apartments to remain until the last phase of development or 20 years, whichever is sooner, and allow existing tenants with tenure of over 10 years to move to these units if they wish;

o        requiring the Developer to allow a group of relocating tenants to collectively move to the same block of new housing if they wish to stay together; and

o        inserting the explicit ability of tenants to petition the Rent Board for a rent reduction for loss of patio or balcony space in a new replacement unit. 

o        An amendment to the Design Standards + Guidelines document was also adopted that would eliminate the organic farm and replace it with additional sports fields. These amendments were all adopted, and the Committee forwarded all of the items to the Full Board without recommendation by a vote of 2-1 (Wiener and Cohen support, Mar opposed).

The same afternoon, the Full Board voted to uphold certification of the EIR and on first reading to approve all actions on the project by a vote of 6-5. In favor were Chiu, Chu, Cohen, Elsbernd, Ferrell, and Wiener. Opposed were Avalos, Campos, Kim, Mar, and Mirakrimi. The project will go before the MTA Board and PUC Commission in June for those agencies to ratify their respective portions of the Development Agreement.

§         AT&T Lightspeed Appeal.  This item was continued without discussion at the request of Supervisor Wiener.  The Board approved a five-week continuance.  Also at the hearing, Supervisor Wiener introduced a hearing request on DPW’s Order governing Excavation Permits for the Installation of Surface-Mounted Facilities in the Public Rights-of-Way.  Specifically, the supervisor requested “a discussion with Public Works, City Planning, SFMTA and the PUC of the extent to which the DPW Order conforms with the General Plan and the Better Streets Plan”.

§         1787 Union St.  This appeal concerned the Cat Ex for “The Brickyard”. Neighbors alleged that a cat ex should not have been issued due to a potentially significant impact from sound at the premises.  Further, they alleged that Department staff and the Commission had acknowledged the impact by using certain CEQA terms during the DR review.  The appellants specifically cited the use of “impact” and “mitigations”.  At the hearing, the Department countered that two sound readings by an Entertainment Commission Inspector demonstrated that there was no significant impact from the project. Countering the appellant’s argument that the conditions to address sound were “mitigations” under CEQA, the Department demonstrated that the Commission was, in fact, applying conditions above and beyond CEQA to address concerns over sound.  The Board agreed and upheld the Cat Ex unanimously.

 INTRODUCTIONS: 

            The hearing request from Supervisor Wiener was the only introduction of note this week.

BOARD OF APPEALS:

There was no hearing by the Board of Appeals last week.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION:

The Historic Preservation Commission did not meet this week.

G.         PUBLIC COMMENT

 

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 with one exception.  When the agenda item has already been reviewed in a public hearing at which members of the public were allowed to testify and the Commission has closed the public hearing, your opportunity to address the Commission must be exercised during the Public Comment portion of the Calendar.  Each member of the public may address the Commission for up to three minutes.

 

The Brown Act forbids a commission from taking action or discussing any item not appearing on the posted agenda, including those items raised at public comment.  In response to public comment, the commission is limited to:

 

(1)  responding to statements made or questions posed by members of the public; or

(2)  requesting staff to report back on a matter at a subsequent meeting; or

(3)     directing staff to place the item on a future agenda.  (Government Code Section 54954.2(a))
