10:16 am
2013 and passed this committee in 2014 and the bos passed them and became efecktdive in december. the divisadero runs 12 blocks from haight at the south to [inaudible] the fillmore runs 9 blocks from mu calster at the south and bush to the north. the ncd allow [inaudible] diverse modes of transit and invite active and appealing architecture and create a frame work. they are a important part of divisadero and fillmore long term plans to create vibrant cor drbs. all the legislation today does is remove the parcel based controls. to emphasize that point i'll read the operative sentence . density will be
10:17 am
restricted by envelope control by height, [inaudible] all other applicable controls of this and other codes as well as applicable design guides and applicable developments and rareia plan and design review. curltly divisadero limits 1 [inaudible] for regular housing and one bedroom for 275 square feet of lot area for group housing. fillmore limits dwelling to 1 unit per 600 square feet and one bedroom for [inaudible] those controls are outdated in in the 2007 [inaudible] including rto and several new nct, the soma, mission street, ocean avenue and glin park nct. the legislation gives people to
10:18 am
build unit without change thg sides or appearance of buildings or the characteristic of the neighborhood. required to provide at least 40 percent 2 bedrooms or 30 percent 3 bedrooms and a existing unit can only be divided if it exceeds 2 houn square feet or more than 3 bedrooms or at least 2 bedrooms and [inaudible] this won't cause a avalanche of microunits. far from it. the sit a doesn't have more lands so must accommodate without impacting neighborhoods. divisadero and fillmore are major cor doors so it is logical to provide it here. the ordinances are small measure to address the housing affordability crisis and allow fillmore [inaudible]. i want to thank tom rudual vich the
10:19 am
[inaudible] for all the work he did on the ordinances. we have incorporated the recommended changes including fwo clerical correction jz one minor exempention the lot merger for nct. with that i'm happy to answer questions. any questions colleagues? no. okay. >> good afternoon errhine star planning department staff. before you are 2 separate ordinances to rezone fillmore and divisadero district. the rezoning would mainly effect how density is calculated. fillmore as ratio on 1 to 600 and divisadero is 1 to 800.
10:20 am
this removes the [inaudible] in the planning code. in addition the fillmore ordinance rezones one property that [inaudible] one property that is zoned rm 3 and one rh 3 to fillmore street nct. no other land use controlerize changed. the planning commission herds these 2 items and voted to recommend approval with recommendation of both ordinances. the recommendation of fillmore is include rezoning of 2 [inaudible] nc 1 recommended to be chaivl today rto. and a add the lot merger restrictions to nct district for 121.7. the recommended modifications for divisadero is add the lot merger restrictions. [inaudible] i understand supervisor breed [inaudible] and we thank supervisor breed
10:21 am
if doing that and that conclude my remarks. thank you >> supervisor kim >> thank you. i just have a couple of questions. first, only because some of this had been in effect for many decades prior, i was wondering historically what was the thinking behind setting the minimums for dwelling units that were put into place? >> that is a good question. i think it was a way to restrict density so neighborhoods didn't become over crowded but what we find is we piled on so many restrictions density controls are a little irrelevant. you can only go up so high, you have to have so much yard and every unit needs exposure so that controls it. >> could you remine me if in the nct there is a requirement
10:22 am
of parking? >> no there is no. fillmore and divisadero do not have parking requirements. that was done when they were created last year >> my final question is how many soft sites are there along these 2 corridors that are developable? >> i believe we did, i don't have the exact number. these 2 corridors didn't have that many from my recollection >> i'm curious and think this is-i support this and glad we are moving forward. i think it is good to have density on these 2 corridors, they tend to be transit rich and could absorb that density so happy to see presents breed is looking at the amendments. there is already a lot of development already built on these 2
10:23 am
corridors >> divisadero is built up but the lots be29 fillmore and oak there is potential there and did get a proposal for those lots >> great thank you >> supervisor wiener-mr. star >> i have a comment. i just want to thank president breed for bringing forward this legislation and creating both new nct in district 8 we did something similar in glen park and also on upper market and it is long overdo. we know that one key aspect of meeting our cities dramatic and profound housing shortage is to make sure that we are putting housing on transit corridors
10:24 am
and so whether it is glen park or upper market or divisadero or fillmore where we have strong transit access that is where we need to put new housing. and having this somewhat outidated approach to maximum unit density, it makes sense to move beyond that so i'm very supportive of this legislation >> thank you. let's take public comment on this item? any member of the public that would like to comment on items 4 and 5 please come up >> this is really cumber some i have to take time out of my busy schedule. i get this second hand information. what is going on here? usual
10:25 am
business. i'm appalled but i won't say anything bad about any supervisors on here but this is appalling. how in the hell do you think who ever put this legislation together that without community input you sit up here and think it is good. have you been to the fillmore lately? have you been to the addition and [inaudible] have you been to rosa parks where we have violations of contractors that don't give a dam n about us. i go to the streets and they look at me like i'm a peon because there is no voice. dam, it after the first there is a voice. washington post, california is a voice for today but with vision for tomorrow. i'm not saying i'm for or against this because i don't know nothing about it and that is the problem. the community don't know nothing about it. i
10:26 am
was there in the creation of the cbd and all these things in the fillmore. you better wake up in listen. people that are in my community that call themselves legislatures. it is called community reform. that is how we put legislation together and find out what the community wants. you are looking at me like i'm crazy. [inaudible] i would say the rest of it but it don't go good at city hall. you get so silly because- >> any member thofz public that would like to speak on this item? seeing none public comment is closed. thank you. staff thank you for your presentation. is there a
10:27 am
motion we could entertain a motion- >> motion to move forward with recommendation on item 4 and 5 >> without objection this motion passes. thank you. madam clerk is there any other items for us today? >> there is no further business for the committee. >> there is no further business this meeting is now adjourned. thank you.
