Review of two Ordinances (Planning Code Text Amendment and Zoning Map Amendment) that would rezone parcels in the Upper Market NCD (Upper Market Neighborhood Commercial District) to the Upper Market NCT (Upper Market Neighborhood Commercial Transit District).

Planning Code Text Amendment.  This proposed Ordinance [Board File No. 12-0901], introduced by Supervisor Wiener, would amend the Planning Code, amending Sections 721.1 and 733.1 to modify the explanation of boundaries of the Upper Market Street Neighborhood Commercial District (NCD) and the Upper Market Street Neighborhood Commercial Transit District (NCT), and amending Section 703.2(b) to permit, in a limited area, food processing as an accessory use to a nearby off-site non-residential use; and would adopt findings, including environmental findings, Planning Code Section 302 findings, and findings of consistency with the General Plan and the priority policies of Planning Code Section 101.

Zoning Map Amendment. This proposed Ordinance [Board File 12-0902], introduced by Supervisor Wiener, would amend the Planning Code Sectional Map Sheets ZN07 and HT07 to change the use classification of specified lots on Blocks 3561 through 3565, now in the Upper Market NCD (Upper Market Neighborhood Commercial District) to the Upper Market NCT (Upper Market Neighborhood Commercial Transit District) and to change the height and bulk classification of Block 3563, Lot 034 from 50-X to 65-B.  The proposed amendment would rezone most of the Upper Market NCD to Upper Market NCT land use controls.  Two lots near the northwest corner of Market and Castro Streets would remain in the Upper Market NCD district.  The proposed amendment would also change the Height and Bulk designation on one lot at the southwest corner of Market and Noe Streets from 50-X to 65-B.  The Planning Department may propose additional rezoning of the remaining Upper Market NCD parcels at the northwest corner of Market and Castro Streets from the Upper Market NCD to the Upper Market NCT zoning.

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:
