ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW NOTICE

Notice is hereby given to the general public of the following actions under the Environmental Review Process. Review of the documents concerning these projects can be arranged by calling (415) 558-6373 and asking for the staff person indicated.

PLANNING COMMISSION
NOTICE OF HEARING ON DRAFT
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THE FOLLOWING

2007.0039E – San Antonio Backup Pipeline Project: The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) proposes to implement the San Antonio Backup Pipeline (SABPL) project to provide reliable conveyance capacity for planned and emergency discharges of Hetch Hetchy water out of the SFPUC regional water system under future flow conditions. The project is needed because the existing SFPUC facilities do not have sufficient capacity to discharge the future maximum Hetch Hetchy flow of 315 million gallons per day. The proposed improvements include a 7,000-foot-long backup pipeline, a new discharge facility at an open quarry pit (Pit F3-East), a cutoff wall to facilitate the management of water levels in Pit F3-East and an adjacent quarry pit (Pit F3-West), dewatering facilities, a pump station and wet well, and new pipelines to connect to other existing pipelines. The proposed improvements would allow the SFPUC to discharge the full maximum future flow to Pit F3-East, and subsequently conserve the discharged water by pumping the water to either San Antonio Reservoir for storage or to the Sunol Valley Water Treatment Plant for treatment and subsequent delivery to customers. In addition, the proposed project would increase operational flexibility and delivery reliability during emergencies and planned maintenance activities by making it possible for the SFPUC to simultaneously discharge quality-impaired Hetch Hetchy water out of the regional water system while accessing water supplies stored in San Antonio Reservoir, thereby minimizing the risk of service interruption.

The proposed project has a 21-month construction schedule, from approximately October 2012 through June 2014. All project components would be located in the Sunol Valley on Alameda watershed lands owned by the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) and managed by the SFPUC. [SMITH]

Notice is hereby given to the general public as follows:

  1. The San Francisco Planning Department has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on the project. The Draft EIR can be viewed online at www.sfplanning.org. Paper copies of the Draft EIR are available for public review at (1) San Francisco Planning Department, Planning Information Counter at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor, San Francisco; (2) San Francisco Main Library at Civic Center, 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco; (3) Alameda County Main Library, 2400 Stevenson Boulevard, Fremont; (4) Dublin Public Library, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin; (5) Livermore Public Library, 400 Old Bernal Avenue, Pleasanton. In addition, referenced materials are available for review by appointment at the San Francisco Planning Department offices at 1650 Mission Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco (call 415-558-6373 to schedule an appointment). 
  2. The Draft EIR found that implementation of the proposed project would result in the following significant environmental effects that could not be mitigated to a less than significant level: construction-related emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx), and the project’s cumulative construction-related NOx and toxic air contaminant emissions. 
  3. Public hearing on the Draft EIR will be held on: Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at Sunol Glen School (11601 Main Street, Sunol) starting promptly at 6:30pm; and at San Francisco City Hall (Room 400, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, San Francisco) on Thursday, February 23, 2012 beginning at 12:00 p.m. or later (call 415-558-6422 the week of the hearing for a recorded message giving a more specific time). 
  4. Public comments on the Draft EIR will be accepted from January 25 through March 12, 2012. Written comments should be addressed to Bill Wycko, Environmental Review Officer, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 941031. Comments received at the public hearing and in writing will be responded to in a Comments and Responses document.

2005.0912E: Significant Natural Resources Areas Management Plan

In February 2006, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department developed the Significant Natural Resource Areas Management Plan (SNRAMP), which guides resource protection, habitat restoration, trail and access improvements, other projects, and maintenance within the Natural Areas: Balboa, Bayview Park, Bernal Hill, Billy Goat Hill, Brooks Park, Buena Vista Park, Corona Heights, Dorothy Erskine Park, Duncan-Castro, Edgehill Mountain, Everson/Digby, Fairmount Park, Glen Canyon Park and O’Shaughnessy Hollow, Golden Gate Heights, Golden Gate Park (Oak Woodlands, Lily Pond, Whiskey Hill, and Strawberry Hill), Grandview Park, Hawk Hill, India Basin Shoreline Park, Interior Greenbelt, Kite Hill, Lake Merced, Lakeview/Ashton Mini Park, McLaren Park, Mount Davidson, Palou-Phelps, Pine Lake, Rock Outcrop, Tank Hill, Twin Peaks, Grandview Park, 15th Avenue Steps, and Sharp Park (in Pacifica).

The SNRAMP delineates Natural Areas into management areas and proscribes both general management activities and activities specific to each Natural Area.

NOTICE OF HEARING ON DRAFT
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THE FOLLOWING

2007.1035E and 2008.0877E: Western SoMa Community Plan, Rezoning of Adjacent Parcels, and 350 Eighth Street Project. The proped project consists of three components. The first is the Draft Western SoMa Community Plan, a plan to guide the future development within the Western SoMa area. The Plan Area is irregularly shaped and consists of two connected areas: one roughly bounded by 13th Street to the east, Bryant Street to the south, Seventh Street to the west, and Minna Street to the north, and the second area roughly bounded by Townsend Street to the south, Fourth Street to the east, Harrison Street to the north and Seventh Street to the west. The proposed Plan would amend the Western SoMa Special Use District and implement new planning policies and controls for land use, urban form, building height and design, street network, and open space. The goal of the Draft Plan is to maintain the mixed‐use character of the Plan Area and preserve existing housing, while encouraging new residential and resident‐serving uses within the proposed Residential Enclave Districts north of Harrison Street and targeting larger parcels south of Harrison Street for local‐ and region‐serving, primarily commercial uses and large‐scale commercial developments. The second component of the proposed project is the rezoning of approximately 46 parcels adjacent to the Plan Area (generally bounded by Seventh, Ninth, Mission, and Minna Streets) in order to reconcile their use districts and height and bulk districts with those of the neighboring properties. These parcels would be rezoned to Downtown General Commercial (C‐3‐G) and Eastern Neighborhoods Mixed Use Office (MUO). The third component of the proposed project is a privately funded proposed mixed‐use development at 350 8th Street (Block 3756, Lots 3 and 15), within the Draft Plan Area. The site is occupied by a large paved lot and three small, single‐story administration and maintenance structures, which would be demolished to accommodate approximately 444 dwelling units, 33,650 sq. ft. of commercial space, 8,150 sq. ft. of light industrial/artist space, and 1,350 sq. ft. of community space. [GIBSON]

Notice is hereby given to the general public as follows:

  1. A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared by the Planning Department in connection with this project. A copy of the report is available for public review and comment online at http://tinyurl.com/sfceqadocs. CDs and paper copies are also available at the Planning Information Center (PIC) at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor. Referenced materials are available for review at the Planning Department’s office at 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, as part of Case File Nos. 2007.1035E and 2008.0877E.
