3:30 am
desirable because it will-less even the impact on the city hall about thirty to 40 feats there's a question about how much open space has been developed one the speakers 35 or 26 point they're asking for a rear yard exemption we want to make sure we have the figures on the open space we can create and still end up with the same project that has to be part of the analysis and obviously later on we'll talk about the breakdown of the unit it's not before a before us today i'll be all for two or three bedroom units that's nor another day other thing we're talking about
3:31 am
was whether the demolition again, they talk about the information in the property report the timing of the demolition might have a lesser impact when the school was not in session that will be something to work out. >> also the other things there was a question about the traffic study in late june and later in the day whether or not that's adequate i feel the traffic study is adequate we have to california probate it to address the schapgz that occur in businesser time what they're in session and international studies the kip school and a lot more activities different times of the year again as ron said the freeway
3:32 am
entrance is difficult that has to be changed but it would be wise with the growth that's occurring in the area that caltrain do something to improve that certain we have to look at the amount of open spaces i've talked about earlier let's see in terms of the shadow it addresses the shadow an jackson park it seems like it limited to the the months of november through february and mostly in december i have a question for staff why is this - one speaker raised a question this project should
3:33 am
have been into the blanket eir into the neighborhood each project has to have its own eir and better not to answer the question today. >> that will be my question i'll take it one speaker brought the point why this one has to occur and why in the past they've con formed environmentally to the area plan they don't have to have it separate 40 feet in height is the maximum height so considerations to shadow implications 40 feet and under there's a difference we have to know about that and look at that and then certainly i am supportive and wanted to make
3:34 am
sure by analysis comments and responses if there was a change in the lay out of the project and they moved some unit around and created open space on the plan the impact is still not increased by doing that arrest so those are my main comments so far i think the elements of all the environmental analysis are present in the plan we have to make sure that the plan may evolve this analysis is still adequate it sounds like the changes i'll advocate for are those that not in active the impact i think the plan looks at pretty complete. >> commissioner moore. >> i appreciate the community coming out and with the project as far developed as this one not
3:35 am
all irs are as developed i know there's a number of issues which the community comments helped to focus i hoped we accelerated pace with the development in the eastern neighborhood allows the eir to more carefully address the delta between what was anticipated to occur when and when the particular project comes forward with its oppose project eir the eastern neighborhood is a program eir that latinos lays out in the broadest sense what will occur this projecting project comes as a faster pace than anticipated i want the eir that is set up quite well, to be more specific in terms of where are we falling short in the overall growth as we are looking
3:36 am
at the project the second point that arises from the strong preservation of people interested in the school the impacts of the critical infrastructure we sit here literally every thursday and hear from people in order for the city to remain attractive and support a liveable attractive future for families that schools our biggest asset and needs to be protected at all costs we have 3 schools in the jackson square a facility that was not addressed i believe needs to be analyzed so the impacts not only of shadow are more clearly explained i'll elaborately but the toxicity and
3:37 am
the access to light as well as noise needs to be address so the schools are one of the most protected resources the live oaks school is a use of app an existing industrial building we've all kernel it's typical to building schools with that building where what clamors are it's extremely important to get the details i suggest on 340 following the impacts of shadow on the school be explained in larger detail i had a hard time knowing where the shied line falls the depictions of the shadow that time 69 year is small i believe we need to be able to see clearly in order to contempt e comment or detrack
3:38 am
comments that's the few of a you on school break the school has facing i think the west side and there the eir needs to be more generous in describing that i think those are the comments i will make at this point. >> commissioner johnson. >> thank you i definitely support all the comments that commissioner moore made i won't repeat i'll add a couple of things in terms of transit for this particular project and for eir in general that may come or the community plan exception it will be helpful to mention instead of saying the trains are not impacted it should be less significant with mitigation that is the effected time from the
3:39 am
mta i'll echo commissioner moore's comments it's difficult for app an analysis that is stagnant i don't know how you can do that when you are caught in deal with a system that's snapshot by snapshot one way over time when the systems converge and refrp the d e p that is a long-running program with a lot of planning will hope help to mitigate those programs where's the buffers and unfortunately mta is on their own track i've peppering tried to push for claugs collaboration
3:40 am
rethey have their own schedule and referencing the eir will help to say that's some of the mitigation in terms of construction i saw quite a bit there i'd like to see more detail we have a sensitive receptor here in terms of schools that's abutting two different sides of the project and the rest of it as a school surrounding the projects that are surrounding this school so if we can have specifics around the conduct i know that generally comes from the project plan when you get a permit you file for our construction plan with the department of building inspection but it will be good for an impact and anything we can do all around further noise around the types of commit and
3:41 am
all of that but if anything we can do for noise shielding those can be pointed out in the eir for this project. >> commissioner richards and it's interesting i'm sitting here and kind of here we go again one more time on the neighborhood what the effect is been i'm a neighborhood plan guy and grew up in octavia plan i'm wondering what's the difference i agree i'll come to that in a minute i agree with the potrero hill busters gentleman some of the status when i was begun i was watching this while i was eating we recognize the 25 year oufbz in the first years hournl honestly, i saw director ram quoted an article on twitter but
3:42 am
the community benefits doesn't appearing for caught up up here market octavia sits american people market street here you have all those clashes around the development and not the infrastructure to support it yet that's a concern you know interestingly i went to 100 hooper street to visit the site i drove my car and drove round and round and round there are a lot of vacant buildings i've driven past hooper and already at 1601 mariposa there's an issue around transportation i'm concerned this will add more to it and 33 hundred car trips a
3:43 am
day will add it to there's not much alternative not the infrastructure to support the growth in moving people around i'm worried about the impact on the school i agree with the commissioner moore and others you know we're trying to encourage families and here we're impacting the construction piece you have to have construction and side noise that effects elapsing it remind me of the draft eir it effected people at the seniors next door trying to regain memories and here we have young students trying to learn and noise dust and post construction for the shadow the shadows definitely the passageway will alleviate
3:44 am
that and the age of in question i want to understand that are we using old data so make new models i agree i hope we'll see a changed project and move towards the superior alternated thanks. >> commissioner moore. >> i'd like to ask one more question that is jackson park we have acreage in jackson traditionally citywide baseball programs happen in the park at least if i see this it doesn't look inviting it is surrounded by a chain linked fence,
3:45 am
however, an occasional stroll is somewhat difficult my question has the population increased the number like the rec and park open space is a program change or a ring with the harmonies of liberty; refinement how the park is laid out to stay adequate of all the needs of the surrounding area again i don't play baseball i used to play tense but it's difficult this year's in stroll or right to the park dogs are not ann an issue i there's a if he has i'm wondering are we effectively using the park to effect changes. >> commissioner richards. >> i hope we have an it possible on the monitoring and
