1. (J. Lau: (415) 558-6383)

Presentation on Proposed Planning Code Amendments to Industrial Districts in Bayview Hunters Point - Informational Item. The Department is preparing a set of zoning modifications for certain M-1 and M-2 designated areas in the Bayview Hunters Point district. The Department is proposing this zoning update to implement various objectives from the Bayview Hunters Point Area Plan, which seeks to retain space for jobs and light industrial activities and to reduce land use conflicts between housing and industry in the Bayview. In general, the Code amendments would continue to permit a wide range of light and contemporary industrial activities, while restricting the size of retail and office development in the area. The zoning revisions will also standardize and codify existing land use policies and controls that currently discourage or prohibit residential development in these industrial zones.

Preliminary Recommendation: Hold hearing on informational item. No action is proposed at this time.

At the hearings, the Planning Commission will consider a rezoning and public improvements program to realize the vision articulated by the community through the Market and Octavia community planning process. For more information on this six-year planning process, please visit our website at http://marketoctavia.betterneighborhoods.org.

Specifically, the Commission will consider the following actions:

  • Case 2003.0347E – Certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report and adoption of CEQA Findings on the Market and Octavia Plan.
  • Case 2003.0347M - a proposed General Plan amendment that would add a new area plan, the Market and Octavia Area Plan, and make related amendments to the Commerce and Industry, Housing, Recreation and Open Space and Transportation Elements, the Civic Center Area Plan, Downtown Area Plan, South of Market Area Plan and the Land Use Index;
  • Case 2003.0347T - a proposed Planning Code text amendment that would revise Planning Code controls, including controls for land use, height and bulk, building design, loading, parking and new fees;
  • Case 2003.0347Z - a proposed Zoning Map amendment that would revise Maps 2 and 2H, 7 and 7H, and 2SU and 7SU. The proposed Planning Code text and map (Zoning Map) amendments would a) establish three new zoning districts, b) amend the Hayes-Gough, Upper Market, and Valencia Neighborhood Commercial Districts (NCDs), c) update height and bulk districts, d) establish the Market and Octavia Community Improvements Impact Fee, and e) make related revisions necessary to implement the General Plan.

Together, these four Commission actions are intended to implement the Market and Octavia Plan. Generally, these changes are described on page 3 of this document.

In addition, an historic survey is currently being done of the project area; property owners considering constructing or altering a building in this area should consult with Planning Department staff to determine the historic resource status of their property. Property owners and interested parties are advised that height limits and other controls do not provide unqualified rights to development, but rather, proscribe the maximum potential building envelope that may be permitted; proposed buildings may not reach the maximum permitted building height/envelope.

Members of the public may review a copy of the proposed amendments at the San Francisco Planning Department office at 1660 Mission Street 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, at the Public Library (the Main Library 100 Larkin St., and Harvey Milk branch library, 1 Jose Sarria Ct.
