8:17 pm
housing bonus program took to february and other continuance impacted the advanced calendar the additional to stay here until you midnight or 2:00 a.m. so i don't think you want to do that i suggest we reinstate the march 31 to the 2016 schedule and possibly discuss the hearings easily the day like 10 or 11:00 a.m. you could we arrange the agenda to take up certain items for commissioners that may not be able to attend i'll leave that up to you initially take a vote to reinstate march 21st, 2016.
8:18 pm
>> commissioner antonini. >> i've very much in favor of that project sponsors were concerned about trying to get on calendar i explained the calendar is busy you i think that is wise for us to reinstate that day and also whether to start of the mergers earlier not a lot on thursday so might as well start on 10 o'clock it is just a consensus. >> no motion required to start earlier the day but you will need some consensus to open a hearing. >> as far as the 31st. >> the 31st we need a vote. >> i'll move to add the 31st. >> second. >> on that motion. >> comment first. >> commissioner hillis so, yeah i'm supportive of adding the extra day and possible future extra days i
8:19 pm
have difficulty with the 10:00 a.m. start date i go into the office in the morning and just would be impossible to do that and work a half or a couple of hours before coming here on thursday i'm happy to add dates but avoid starting earlier. >> commissioner moore. >> we have been put on notice for a few weeks things continue to be filled calendar so i believe that even at the beginning of the year we left it on we'll be reinstating the 31st i'm supportive but any earlier starting i don't think it is appropriate i'd rather have full other meetings than coming before that. >> commissioner vice president richards. >> i also not in supportive
8:20 pm
support of an elder start time but a half an hour earlier and not take a break in the afternoon but more efficient to take a quick break starting at 11:30 verse 12 no lunch. >> commissioner antonini. >> anytime we can gain restrictions some of the commissioners would be helpful i think things come up as we'll hear about later in the calendar probably have a session not as long as usual today and continuance frequently occurs calendar seemed to be jammed they can quickly become less busy but we can't put anything in this items are continued to calendar more day is a good idea. >> commissioner moore. >> many of us work and spend the morning i want to hear from
8:21 pm
commissioner hillis whether or not thirty minutes is amenable to you or would that be a problem. >> so i am not i'd like to keep it at noon and moving to 11:30 avoid that move it to dloushgs and not take a break. >> i appreciate that a normal work break is at the noon or one together and one person appealing off earlier is difficult i'll stand in support of what commissioner hillis explained. >> commissioner wu. >> i'm post to the 31st seems fine i suggest we keep it at noon and take a shorter break try tee eat lunch before coming. >> (laughter). >> so jonas may suggest the
8:22 pm
consensus is for the 31st to keep the meetings at noon and not take a long break and commission a couple of few weeks this starts to bloom we're not gaining on the number of items and perhaps one meeting that start earlier to catch. >> we're going to there is a motion and a second we should take public comment on the march cynthia i 31st. >> commissioner moore i'll ask is for the president and the vice president to very careful work with the director for more balanced schedule for the commissioner vice president richards raised that when we came on the commission he noticed an imbalance and there's a reason for coping but not coping particularly you want to tip the scale and leave at 4:30 or 5 and leave at midnight i
8:23 pm
know we can't extend the public comment but think historical experience to be able to kind of guess what we're expecting a lot of people an attempt to get a balance. >> commissioner vice president richards. >> i agree with commissioner moore maybe be a little bit more be fine tuning the way we balance things part of public comment i hate to keep cutting public comment down and down and down when people come here for hours and get a minute i'd like to have rather additional meetings i've learned quite a bit. >> speaking of which any public comment on the addition of march 31st meeting? not hearing or seeing any public comment is closed. >> thank you on that motion commissioners to add march 31st
8:24 pm

8:28 pm
50 years nfl give me one sentence i'll be more informed to understand. >> well, this is obviously the super bowl 50 it is not so much the event itself but the heeding security around it i believe that there are demonstrations that were scheduled throughout the super bowl week i think the building management including the city administrators is concerned about safety of the building itself with this sort of hi profile of members of nfl membership participating this after that. >> commissioner antonini. >> i think that mr. highland's put it well, it is an event with national significance and a possibility of things that might be disruptive on a national scale that is what separates it if the local events but i am in

8:31 pm
it so save on the public comment side and continue it to make sure that people are able to comment who may want to comment and 0 not say it was anticipated for continued or because i have traffic a demonstration and assess was not possible. >> the project sponsor is fully aware the circumstances and the risk he and his team with taking whatever reason i'm speaking with the representatives of t t n a not ware they're here and prepared. >> commissioner moore. >> i this is a little bit confusing bus i received a response from the public incumbent there was the presumption the commission had continued the item and that is not the case we have been asked to continue culp lane, however, from the staff to the monday

8:45 pm
so i asked any time we have a demonstration agreement with a threshold affordability the exercise is given to us it is a great transparent to look at it afterward i'd like to a or so a consultant take apart the numbers secondly, there was an article in the chronicle on the 28 that was lecturers hearing, talking about areas being affordable and walkable and now the world wants to live close together and walk to everything the post millennial generation only 14 percent of the country is more walkable and two place the u.s. have those washington, d.c. and seattle a third of maintenance convert to school or work by foot compared to they were percent of baby boomer so we're

8:52 pm
recalculation for all pending dr cases and the 311 for the rh1, rh3 two excuse me. i think the reason it is important because maybe they need drs southern the executions with mr. sanchez and commissioner vice president richards it was discovered that was a 40 percent issue that 40 percent of time some of these should have been calculated as demolitions and those remodels so i would hope that if you're going to go forward and have the staff consider how they calculate in the future that perhaps at least consider it for pending dr case and thing that these that involved involve
8:53 pm
major altercations and relocation of a unit as i said it was discovered at least 40 percent likelihood they're not calculated correctly the samples i submitted for the case study there they're the ones he had photos of whole process of demolition and the new project that is a lot i didn't get mid process maybe we missed some but at least 40 percent i think that is mandatory drs are necessary it will have a loss of five and six affordable housing so if this is okay with you i'm hand that in i'd like to put that in the minutes thank you very much. >> good afternoon,
8:54 pm
commissioners i'm thoosie i'd like to bring uo your attendance the planners frequently accepting revisions from project sponsors without requiring them to submit them to the planning department this is a problem not knowing what and when provisions are submitted the public is the dark and at transparency is lost how else can we find out if the plans are nothing but in his opinion and tucks and 6 thousand square feet mcmansion a monster home when we complained previously we were told that was the expectation to the rule and only being done with the project
8:55 pm
sponsor was unsure how to respond to the pdr the planner can give me a quick look and submit to the building inspection right afterward this is expanded and it has expanded dramatically to the point that almost may be one 3rd of planners are letting this happen and almost most projects and most revisions if a revision is under review is the concern for the neighbors the opportunity to engage the department and engage with staff and negotiate with the project sponsors and then slapped with a 311 notification what is the recourse file a dr this will add to the volume of drs and you'll

9:15 pm
planning department activities the department began working with the controller's office 0 evaluate your measures this is in concert coyotes controller's office upcoming design with the citywide metric system so we are proposing a series of new performance measures that focus on the high-level output rather than counting the types of applications like how many residential additions or process within certain timeframes and small residential construction programs 100 percent affordable housing projects, community salutation our parklet 0 program we're proposing i won't go through them all but proposing to report and count the metrics under those various items and finally our budget calendar on the 20 of january we went to

9:17 pm
tom just commissioners to summarize quickly the heart of budget proposal is those in any positions that ac that tom went over and the 40 bucket on page 11 of the slide show so those bucket are dealing with the backlog to deal with new policy initiative to deal with process improvements and to fallout grow our ability to do better community outreach those are the issues i've benefit hearing from the board of supervisors and the mayor for the last year we hope those kind of address those issues in an appropriate way i'm just want to under the influence this is the vast majority of the revenues we're seeing going to fund those 14 to 9 positions the next two years with that, weigh close our presentation and anxious to hear our comments as well. >> open up for public comment if there is any public comment on this item.
9:18 pm
>> okay not seeing any, public comment is closed. commissioner moore. >> this is always different to respond we're not day to day following how the numbers go up and down i appreciate the departments work, however, i have a couple of questions obviously without really knowing i have to say i don't the increase in expenditures with salary and infringes is staggering is goes up by $6 million and the first step and an additional 2 and a half million dollars the second step it's a an incredible amount of money the line item which spriepdz me on the materials and supply side the increase is very, very large between the adopted budget of today and how we're moving into the future three hundred and 6
9:19 pm
to $350,000 with the decrease in costs for computers, etc. that and you mentioned a whole bunch of other things there is a huge step on this number as a replacement i understand that for many reasons we need place holder with the certainty of housing will create and complete change. >> of how we use technology i'd like to ask is that under which particular line item are you counting people who are more in support felt commission themselves for example, we have a long list of action items that gets longer and longer i'd like to see at least a certain amount of man power allocated for people to attend to the questions we ask in a timely manner thing on the list are way
9:20 pm
over a year old and not been able to note the answers we need to participate in a way that's one question commission yeah. the commission staff is commitment to devolved under the department administration you see think outside the box on the first page well, after 3224 the memo looks like that so you'o you'l you'll4 the memo looks like that you'll see the - >> i'd like to see the presentation laid in how to affect us i'm in no position to question the numbers i'm observing a certain mulch e amount of detail missing
9:21 pm
there's the other thing i wanted to ask that the increased confusion with enforcement i want to make sure that the department staffing and we've been supportive of with the mr. sanchez work and his staff work that we are properly covered to connect the newly instituted airbnb and short-term rental enforcement including increase ability to cooperate with dbi particularly because they lost the computer program to help make things for efficient i want to make sure we're covered for the next year or two or three until we have a technical basis to coordinate.
9:22 pm
>> fine we'll do that we have 3 enforcement planners entirely tloftsdz to shortly and the zoning administrator has 32, 3, 4 one office and those are 6 full-time city staff devolved to the projeted d we have more double the number a furious we're proposing one more code enforcement. >> in particular worked on georgia said are those particular increases the work cost by what you have listed at the moment. >> well the work i believe that the commissioner vice president richards men's is work by the zoning administrator staff yes and by the current
9:23 pm
planning staff one the aspects of the work looking at the code language and whether we can address changes to the demolition rifrlt that is done by the lotta's fountain earthquake staff. >> theotta's fountain earthquake staff. >> thea's fountain earthquake staff. >> tfontain earthquake staff. >> thearthquake staff. >> tuake staff. >> tke staff. >> the last question miff i'd like to see licensed architect to what type of projects we're reviewing it helps the commission and helps the general amount of cus the art we have many of them dealing with the architecture issues and we agree certainly two new architecture positions within this project. >> i hope that is sufficient. >> (laughter) so do i i think. >> and also into a summer
9:24 pm
program with architects are assigned in other words, to learn i encourage that very much and see a proper balance in how we contributoattract interns. >> i'm glad you put if positions for that one comment i'll make the measurement section i don't see is a measure for what the for those positions and i'll recommend there is a type of process whatever that will. >> for that position. >> okay.
9:25 pm
>> the other thing regarding the measures completely support the measures that you have the only thing i worry about how do you hand the details not due to the staffing this is something either part of project sponsor it can take two years i want to make sure that the numbers don't get distorted you or your staff have to do interesting enough we're zg couple of on our advanced calendar some ceqa reform on transportation once we talk about that will help the process i've been a party to discussions an ceqa reform or ideas of second not reform efficiency in the mayor's office of housing i understand from the documentation there is a desire
9:26 pm
to survey the properties in the city to maybe circumvented that historic preservation commission ceqa review the question i'll have maybe i missed it is there any plans to beef up survey team or staff to go out and do that so we can save on the ceqa portion of the ceqa. >> yes. this year's the funding inform a full-time position to work on a survey as well as the funder for the survey itself we're the process of hiring that position. >> i guess to councilmember glover's point on the action item list we're going i'm going to put together kind of a list you itself and hand out a ballot for all commissioners to prioritize to get an idea what is most important for this
9:27 pm
commission i don't know if so it too late i mentioned this last year maybe perhaps our be biggest issue is the intern project to tackle two of those items i threw that out there last year i don't know how we are the process of hiring an intern but maybe knockoff one of the projects i think on the i like the two architecture position that commissioner moore talked about it will help and some of the things we'll have potentially a project today where is there an translation of the residential guidelines in upper market street those two architects with the architect and the staff really help make sure that design guidelines and why the project conformed or and
9:28 pm
exploratorium and the trade offs and what happened that had been a good investment so not having what we're seeing today and help the public transparent how the design gets done. >> enforcement the short-term rentals enforcement and the on the enforcement i know there is a lot of great people working on that i know wooefsh we'll have a i guess angle enforcement presentation it is yet to be scald but flush out you know, i think the enforcement cases with included the overall cases and highway patrol u how much is the short-term rentals and the etc., ect, etc. to understand how that all falls out and make sure the number of people on that are working on it correctly and some enrollment cases we're in short-term rentals it is so hard to figure out whether there is a
9:29 pm
violation or not you don't have a threat they take forever and the process may be a person can recognize ways to curtail that like a valid register. >> understood thank you. >> commissioner antonini. >> a couple of questions director rahaim first of all, do we have team efforts or redundancy maternity leave or project do they wait or assigned someone can pick up the relieve. >> they're typicallyy assigned it is i will say that reassignment slows down the work the new planner has to get up to speed but typically reassigned e assigned when an extended leave. >> one suggestion might not at the beginning of every project so have co-assignments you may
9:30 pm
not have enough staff to do that but two people are brought up to speed with every project in the case of an absence someone can pickup and not have to be retrained on another efficiency item i assume we simultaneously salute i i know that environmental has to proceed other things in order of approval you can't really approve something for many of the aspects of the project until the environmental has been completed but it would seem as though the project could be evaluated even though the environmental has to be completed before any approvals i hope it is sort of what we are doing. >> the goal is that the environmental review precedes no
9:31 pm
parallel. >> rather than sequencely. >> and the advantage of the environmental review can to the project review we're not quite there we were better but trying to get the paralyze and the environmental review takes the long-term minded we time to make sure it happens in that window of time. >> thank you. >> commissioner wu. >> so is it so great to see that that that is all projects review is working well, we're continuing that work and happy to see the dedication of the legacy business and the renewed work on the housing policy those are issues that commission has talked about a lot i'll continue to ask to pay attention the deficit of hiring especially diversity of the
9:32 pm
experience like the business legacy program or working on housing it is the different prospective kind of helped to bring understanding to the staff level that something sort of more robust coming to the commission and then i said to ask a specific question from public comment come into ask about the filipino cultural heritage district whether or not that was included the work plan. >> i need some help from any colleague it is included in this year's plan one of the now you mentioned is one the issues the funding that was proposed as part of knowledge approval project and it is not totally clear where the funding which agree or entities is the recipient of
9:33 pm
that the bottom line i don't think it is reflected in this work plan if i'm not mistaken but we need to clarify that point about where the funds is coming from to be honest is being tied up in the legal delays over the 5 m approval i'll try to have a better i eyes. >> united states cultural district is not about the 5 m it didn't incapsulate 5 m are removing quickly think central soma it is central to think about central soma so a part of larger work. >> commissioner vice president richards. >> i echo commissioner wu's comments if you can grab that money i think that was three hundred k grab it and use it if
9:34 pm
not try to use it internally that's important thanks. >> okay. >> no further questions commissioners that concludes this item we'll hear it in two weeks. >> commissioners, that places you under your item 8 the upper market expansion a planning code amendment. >> good afternoon, commissioners my name is monique mohan planning staff i'm here to ask adoption changes for the upper market commercial district before i begin someone from supervisor wiener's will be here. >> good afternoon on this on behalf of the supervisor
9:35 pm
wiener's briefly the the item before you provides an opportunity for an existing use the planning code we allowed the project sponsor working closely with the organization and craft the controls bra you today that explicit explicitly legalize the use but provide a path though the - the triangle neighborhood association and potrero castro and the castro upper market have sponsored this and briefly in terms of staffs recommendations it is reasonable to me the only concern we have one of the recommendations was expend those controls to the limited restaurant as well i think on the face of it we were open to considering that that has not been part of discussions with the neighborhood we'll be reluctant but we're open to be
9:36 pm
back thank you. >> currently in the european market street the commercial the mtc requires the conditional use to work on the greater and not permitted on upper scenarios of the building this is to amend the planning code in upper market to expand with the constructive with the following conditions met one is a if it has been converted two an internal staircase bar use connection exists and 3 no expansion of the building envelope. >> neighborhood commercial district like upper market and mtc was to help the land use controls and support for the additional finding and city to make sure this is not a negative
9:37 pm
impact on the validate phone number for the housing stock the city understand to those legalize or lists one bar but this limit restaurant the corridor that maybe good candidates and other restaurant uses because of the behavioral issues associated with alcohol as an expansion to have a bar on the second floor maefrns the department - while specific to say an arrest warrant try requirement for an expansion forecast did planning department didn't hinder the community to provide to make changes to the project sponsors as part of the conditional use authorization the planning commission can impose taeld consideration if the space has not on a roll call
9:38 pm
and no expansion of the building envelope and i'm available to answer any questions. >> okay opening it up for public comment. >> hi taifd if the triangle association we are definitely supportive of the entire second story for the particular bar in question they've been a good neighbor and a good special event space for parties and that kind of things we've had enough of that kind of things in the neighborhood i'm weary to lend our support to a general expansion of this for restaurants this is not
9:39 pm
something we've thought about or get into the weeds or the imperial staircase might be problematic it is news to be hearing about that in terms of what is actually on the agenda could i we're definitely in support thank you. >> is there any additional public comment? >> okay public comment is closed. commissioner antonini. >> sound like reasonable legislation and as we heard when that was presented of this passes which it should i believe it will require any other establishment to go to the conditional use process we certainly have a good oversight sometimes 72 hour are more problematic then other retail uses and so might make a good use whether there are
9:40 pm
vacancies or issues for the rattler and permitted use on the 72 hour second story i think this benefits one particular establishment it it has broad support and this legislation allows that to happen and allows us to consider any instances that may come forward the future but have to be deemed necessary and desirable i'm in support. >> i would like to support the comment the public made leaving out the staircase if i understand supervisor wiener correctly dealt with a particular circumstance which i feel strongly supporting, however, if i had el i'm not prepared and could be amended later this as specific understanding of the district
9:41 pm
per say and situations or situations that maybe similar but the broader dafgs definition of the stair i'm prepared to so for the or support it the other thing more a question to supervisor i'd like to see a restriction on the use of outdoor space which we always try to only catch when it is too late this moment to discuss that is that at issue and perhaps you can answer that. >> you say outside spaces. >> a bar they use it and don't have approval and i would like to prevented that from having the gentrification of bar used by not spelling out what is included i'll be remiss of the question. >> this location as i
9:42 pm
understand is a second story building a full lot coverage so there isn't a rear yard no outside space that is clear not allowing an expansion of the building envelope not a deck or something created devoted to housing. >> all your address about noise you're making a comment about only keeping the windows clotted. >> that was a recommendation by the staff. >> i'm in support without the recommended modifications or the provision that could be happening later if it is substantive support from the person that created this legislation. >> i'm making a motion to - it is a motion of intent to approve as it is brought forward by the supervisor and - how do i say that.
9:43 pm
>> we're going or we're adopting a recommendation for approval. >> it sound like your in favor of the modifications. >> the one i was not in favor of the stair. >> on that particular issue not the issue is whether there is an existing stair but staff's recommendation that someone could put in a stair to connect about it you don't want to go that way that's fine. >> i have to hear the motion gnaw could you help me to formulate the proper motion with leaving out the. >> the establish portion. >> may i have a motion i don't know it was our represents the windows were closed but part of d t and a recommendation we excluded those are an informational item if you want
9:44 pm
to approve how how the supervisors proposed it do a recommendation of approval that's all you have to do. >> i'm in support of windows closing i don't want to come back later and say a recommendation of approval that the windows need to be closed during proclamation. >> if i report a disturbance than they'll be an action you're also saying - >> not you. >> the staff recommendation those are proposed recommendation for the church i will bar to expand to the second story d ta has old positions we included the staff to brought to your attention and show you the types of concerns the neighborhood has. >> those are perfect i'm in full support i'll leave out the
9:45 pm
stair and in favor of everything must the stair. >> the recommendation not to remedy the d ta approval for the actual approval. >> you'll include those when churchi churchill. >> it will come to you. >> this is complicated that tries to explain and this is the abstract it is difficult to understand. >> okay. >> i think that is clarified we're trying - this is the legislation it is a prohibited use the bar is prohibited use. >> if you don't want to support staff's recommendation do a recommendation of approval that's all that's fine. >> is that your motion.
9:46 pm
>> i'll second commissioner moore's motion. >> thank you, commissioners commissioner richards. >> okay just to be clear so the stairs the motion includes the existing supervisor language or not. >> the existing motion is just to adopt a recommendation for the approval for the legislation as proposed by the supervise the issuance of stair will come back to you when the project comes back. >> jonas i'll correct there are dual legislation with supervisor wiener it includes the existing staircase. >> so to recommend approval with the existing legislation so the way it is proposed the first part. >> so i know executive branch i will and occasionally mr. i'm havi
9:47 pm
blank. >> i like the legislation we have actually a couple of great bars on the second floor the lookout one around the corner and maybe a future expansion a great long time is eureka they have a great restaurant downstairs and a great bar upstairs i was there and greeted supervisor wiener so i will work with the neighborhood association to make sure you can create for spaces they really work in some cases so support of legislation and happy to have the community room in churchill. >> commissioner hillis. >> not to xhablth the
9:48 pm
staircase but a staircase in every building you have to get up to the first story but it is odd to have this? the legislation just the staircase has to exist in the footprint of the bar that wants to expand? >> yeah. so. >> that's how the legislation is written correct. >> so staffs recommendation make sense in that case we're tayloring we might as well put in the named churchill a first story use going up to the second floor. >> snits the basis for the staff's recommendation. >> i be in we're making a recommendation but have to understand we're making a recommendation of the legislation that yeah, we
9:49 pm
recognize that churchill will come back and ask for a cu but to commissioner vice president richards point if we want this to apply to something else we should take the staircase language out that will not apply or we'll build the staircase dpaints. >> any concern that by not having that language in there we'll create an incentive for merging spaces we're not ready to do so do the right thing but we're not ready to advance it policy. >> limit to churchill we don't expect any other use but a cu. >> we're not done all the surveys it is possible maybe an existing staircase between them we do know that for sure.
9:50 pm
>> likely yeah likely didn't exist. >> like a single-family homes. >> if you do that you wanted to expand to the second story you'll not been able to do that you have to come back and amend the legislation we want to trailer this to churchill that's fine. >> commissioner vice president richards. >> the intent mr. powders to have a formally two flats with we have in the upper market and seen quite a few of the of and a commercial downstairs and a door on the right and formally a residence maybe an office or maybe turned back into housing you don't want to - i have to go out to the front door and up the steps to the second story to you support that because the second story is vacant they can go back
9:51 pm
to a second story unit i like the legislation. >> commissioner moore. >> following up on what commissioner johnck's said this legislation speaks to a particular building type not a particular user i think we need to leave the emphasis that smaller create circumstances, which an, an internal stair are suitable for to documentation and not advertise it is confusing the body of text a reference to the body but that's not reference to our discussion. >> commissioners is there anyone from the public that wishes to speak to adopt a recommendations for approval.
9:52 pm
>> commissioner antonini commissioner hillis commissioner moore. >> commissioner wu commissioner vice president richards and commissioner president fong so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously 6 to zero and places us on item 9 sacramento street conditional use authorization. >> game-changer commissioner president fong and members of the commission i'm collin clark planning staff the item before you conditional use authorization to allow skin spirit to change from a vacant to a retail and personal service use ton is empowering of on existing second story commercial

10:12 pm
