C.         COMMISSIONERS’ QUESTIONS AND MATTERS

 

6.         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 would like to thanks the San Francisco Forty-niners for a great season, regrettably, with a sad ending. I was thanking the 49ers., with particular reference to that defense, not to the exclusion of the entire team, but for one of the greatest seasons the defense has had in the history of the NFL.  That should remind us, as San Franciscans we always have to be tenacious in the defense of our traditions, institutions, and civic treasures and always be tirelessly a good advocate and representative of our City.

Commissioner Borden:

This week, I met with J. Mathews.  While I was meeting with him on a second item, we were talking about some of the things going on with planning.  He had spoken with Commissioner Moore previously but was wondering how they can work more closely with the Department on the innovative initiatives with greater transparency and more innovation. They are very interested in learning about the permit tracking system we're going to look at next week and maybe we can invite him to join us for that so we can know more what he is doing in that space. We' e looking at how to create innovations within existing departments to make it easier for the public to go through a very serious city process these and to figure out how to better work with his office because he is one guy trying to figure out all the different city agencies. If there is a way we can work with him, because we interface with the public so much more frequently that would be useful. He was eager to hear we were hiring a communication person and I would like to look at how that would apply to other departments as well.

 

 

Commissioner Moore:

I would very much support what you just said. He is a terrific guy and we would have a very good ally in things that we are interested in being involved in including new technology and communication. I want to bring to the Commission's attention an article I saw in the paper which is only hinting at San Francisco begins issuing medical marijuana dispenser permits again. I would like our staff to at some point to [get] less than a short-term brief of how they see it from their perspective regarding the newspaper article. It seems to be pointing into the direction of what the City policy is. I found the article quite interesting. I would be happy to pass it around.

President Miguel:

I recently met with people from San Francisco MOMA and it was very interesting. I have been talking to people at North Beach regarding grocery stores and have met with the people at the Metro Theater which may finally come to pass. It seems a distant memory when that was before us. I was also at a public meeting regarding the Waterfront the other day on the playground proposed. They have done an excellent job with it and there is great enthusiasm, particularly from a lot of little kids who recognize all of the play equipment and really like it. Yesterday, one of the noontime forums regarding retail and fresh food and trying to get more of it into various areas of San Francisco was a very interesting forum.

 

D.         DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

7.         Director’s Announcements

           

Director Rahaim:

I just wanted to give you a brief review of my talk in Seattle the last couple of days.  I was there at the request of an organization that had been called The Cascade of Land Conservancy and has recently changed their name. I am not quite sure why the change except they are expanding their purview and they were more a traditional land conservancy agency and they have expanded their mission in recent years.  With a basic understanding that's in order for them to take care of the land outside the urban areas and control urban sprawl, they need to spend more time and attention on what happens to make those more livable and all walkable. It is interesting to see that perspective. What happens outside cities is related to what happens inside cities and that is interesting. They started a rural to urban transit development program where the development rights are sold and transferred to the center City of Seattle. It is pretty interesting. It is something we had done 15 years ago in Seattle and it is very interesting. I also want to report that the City received a very interesting award this past week. It is an international award from the Institute for Transportation Development Policy granted to the City. It is an interesting program they have put together. Our program is to take over underutilized rights of way. They mentioned those programs and gave us a strong acclaim for the work we're doing.  They also made a strong point of mentioning the City's Bicycle Plan and network related to those programs, but this is a substantial reward we are to receive. Congratulations to the staff and the department for all of the work on those things.
