8:09 pm
main street hidden on the streets but and you mention the bad thing they only went up 2 floors with their additions or 3 floors instead of putting you housing above and they didn't do that and they also the little town doesn't have the essential services no market in the little town a few things i need and neighborhoods serving uses like restaurant and maybe some banks and a few other things but not too much of the residents that live in those are areas like elderly that walk to. >> by and large they did a lot of good things it is instructive some of the streets that mind to mind is are west portal it went through a lot of sort of things the older buildings were notably
8:10 pm
only 2 floors in the 60s 234ir7 replaced by banks and surface parking lots this is an opportunity for a con turk always for the buildings to blend and certainly transit rich you can't be more transit rich than the transit links doubt through the subway i'm not advocating for a huge you can densification of it you know there's a properly planned densification they've done in pleasant and main street but they managed to keep the context so i think that that would be something we can take some examples from the architecturally was we a lot about our streets that under go

i'd like to dooushgs to the selma plan your staff released several policy papers for public review their drafts i urge you all to take into account it there are very, very crucial items that are interesting proposals worthwhile i'd like to dooushgs to the one today about 127b89 the puncture line of the paper is recommending a echo district one is a water plan and an energy basically engineering those are worthwhile you little to do with the community buildings and another major area a habitat that has real potential it is not much daily and for some reason that omits community gardens which are a long established neighborhood greening strategy that is
8:18 pm
worthwhile and popular i hope they release they left it out i want to directing your attention to our freeway the sustainable plan ignores the freeway that freeway the i 80 was built in the early cvs i saw it coming from my family from oakland a lot of distribution down the bridge then it was south of market and i'll not forget it hocking hundreds of housing many small factories and warehouses were destroyed and that freeway south of market has been there for 60 years it is fufk urge it is the biggest structure in the neighborhood and most importantly it sits on 16 acres
8:19 pm
of land there's no excuse for taking every secret of the 16 acres and making productive use out of it whether their habitat or for dog runs type of arts and high occupancy vehicles for parking lots or depose every square footage should be productive recycled for sound use and, of course the uglyness of the thing is unexcusable it didn't have to be urge or ugly if there's budget with more stronger efforts with urban freeways have been transformed into places tatsdz a blight and time to stop that we urge that to be put into our program thank

8:22 pm
atmosphere those nc ds are important to create the vibrant neighbors and corridor all the legislation before i does it remove the arbitrary density control all the other controls remain i know for those of us this is pretty well logical and easy to comprehend we're worried about high-rise in divisadero and other areas that is not the case i want to emphasize this is a small tweaked john controls all the regular controls are in place the nice thing it is essentially on one sentence i'll read the sentence now so everyone understand no there will be i'm not quoting
8:23 pm
exactly no residential lot area density restricted by the height and unbelievable and open space, exposure required mixed use and other applicable controls of this code as well by plausible and area plans in the general and design review so all the controls will remain in planning place the only change not an arrest warrant try based on the parcel size pursue currently divisadero has 8 dwelling units for regular housing and one bedroom for 2 hundred and 75 lot areas for group housing fillmore limits to 6 units and one bedroom for 2 had had and 10 square feet of lot area for group housing this legislation is one small measure to aid the
8:24 pm
housing affordability criticize the city didn't have more land so without negatively good-looking the historic neighborhoods that is what it does those are major vibrant corridors it is logical to have more opportunity here the city starting to adapt the zoning without the controls after 2007 those include several nc t including the selma and ocean avenue and glen park they give people the option to build more smaller unit without 0 impacting the visible character and the 5 units is 40 percent of 2 bedrooms or thirty percent with 3 bedrooms and the existing units can only be if it has more
8:25 pm
than 3 bedrooms and has at least with an of the resulting units has more than 2 head and 50 square feet this will not cause micro units it allows the existing buildings or more units newly constructed awhile maintaining the controls of the sets back and everything else it is a new practice the fillmore nc t incorporates 2 papers on fillmore at the south end and on the north pr this will make the existing non-common business at 863 to a non-existing and church and large parking lot we have not heard any indication they are going to further develop the program and steiner era a
8:26 pm
residential building again, no plans to change it but this give thems more options and the two recommended i'll consider clerical changes are fine with supervisor breed thank you at&t park for his report and, of course, all tom the executive order of liveable cities and the planning code the divisadero created a vehicle for merchant and resident to help shape the future of the neighborhood. >> thank you for your support amending to the nc t allows the neighborhoods to incorporate a few more housing that's essentially it i'll be happy to answer any questions thank you very much. >> so you've heard from connor
8:27 pm
this rezones two distracts the next e effects of the density controls based on lot area and controlled by height limitation and sets back and requirements and the feasible and the bedroom counts the department allows those because it helps the city to mediate its future demands while preserving the earner neighborhood character two represents for the fillmore nc t height district the first one will include the rezoning of the parcels at fillmore and fulsome from nc one so rto and the reflection of the current zoning with recommendation one the property across the street from the nc it a inconsistent with the nc t zoning district and they're not commercial the
8:28 pm
section recommendation is fair vice president wants the commission to include a recommendation that's not in the kinds report that addresses something the department works on to increase the affordable housing in the city the department works closely with the mayor's office to have the policy changes called for by the working group with a bonus program it is still underdevelopment and according the depth represents those are able to participate in future applications of the program but the commission urges the board of supervisors to make the changes to facilitate the ability of property owners in the fillmore and other areas to participate in the future density program i have text of the proposed recommendation i'll pass out to you
8:29 pm
that concludes my remarks thank you. >> opening it up for public comment michael (calling names). >> hi commissioners i'm michael 134i8g9 wick thanks for the opportunity to speak i've lived open scott street one block over from divisadero and foreign 26 years and seen the neighborhood change and been a part of the chunk in the work essentially along the community driven planning process and including the medium down the center i'm
8:30 pm
enthusiastically supportive i've come to say that is a positive thing we need to improve and increase the density to accommodate people and doing it it in a one smart way by increasing the density on the corridors is u the way to do it you'll hear people say we're not here for that but the housing crisis is a crisis people people say no, i say yes, in our backyard i'm disappointed to hear the density is not increased i don't know why not have taller buildings on the divisadero at concerns about the parking i find self-serving i've lived here 26 years
