1:31 am
benefit transition to residential. >> so. >> may i make a comment. >> i'd rather have mr. levi explain about the roof. >> if i may add one question on top of that that is pertinent the fence you've mentions needs a variance i couldn't find that on the plans nor the the reference of notice it was my understanding the vanities is for the height of the fence so if you can show me that fence open the plans. >> so on the upper photo on the right hand is the fence in question as it exists and the requests to heighten it was not
1:32 am
part of the question 18th and commissioner moore we discussed the odd roof and the work is being done there is drainage material to support the plant life and in regards to the small patio it can be modified relative to neighbor privacy and having a bay window as mentioned in life as far as the people that on elizabeth street are concerned that bay window need not a have west side view to protect the people and for the maker of the motion. >> we don't have a motion. >> i want to listen first particularly to mr. richard idea of phasing conditions because

1:35 am
>> the calculation is 72 occupants with three staff and i would say there's been a lot of planning configurations but the number of feet in the drawing in front of you. >> i have a quick count it smells more than 70 or 80 from - >> it is also been every time configured it is about what fits in the illusion and no other person talked about meeting with the neighbors but i'll go ahead and make a motion to have

1:37 am
let's get this together and figure out. >> commissioners april 23rdrd. >> mr. levi i want to participate since your ultimately having the client that would like to stay open late at night i'm concerned the skylights that are wonderful at night nobody spills out over night when the rear yard in the neighborhoods are dark i myself have experienced frequently how windows and lights face the wrong way and is a nuisance that's onsite an issue if you want to comment i'd appreciate that. >> if i could get the overhead i'm aware we did speak with charles about the acoustic

1:45 am
of the facades on pine came down. they that had whole area cordoned off. >> no, there's a high speed chase. so it had nothing to do with the building. this brings up the question. do we make them rebuild it? >> that's a good question. there are ceqa implications and policy implications to figure out what is the best course of action. i will say that somewhat related now that we have a compliance staff member, we are talking with the zoning administrator about certain policies on whether or not to require somebody to build something if it's been demolished or neglected and some of those policies will be
1:46 am
coming to you this year hopefully by the summer and maybe at that time is a good opportunity to discuss situations like you are bringing up. i know, was it the columns at the san francisco center, there was a lawsuit >> no. the front part of the building. >> when we have that discussion can you bring some of the information because some of the analysis done was very good. i read it about 10 years ago. that would be good to rereview as part of that discussion. >> commissioners that will place us under commission matters.

. >> congratulations to your work and assistance. >> thank you, i set some goals for those two years.2 years. >> i really appreciate your vote of confidence. i really enjoy my tenure. thank you. >> commissioners, item 6. questions? >> i unfortunately wasn't able to be at the last commission meeting. but i did want to recognize that at the history expo at the old mint, the last of february and first of march, the
1:50 am
planning department historic preservation commission had a booth. i noticed there was a map there where people can pinpoint things they were interested in. i saw there was a respectable crowd outside of the booth talking to the people who were manning it and i thought it was extremely nice. >> thank you. commissioner hyland? >> i had two things. one for those who may or may not know this, i had the opportunity to go to washington d.c., that's where i was last hearing and we were doing legislative day for the american institute of architects and we had the opportunity to meet nancy pelosi's aids. mostly what i wanted to bring up today is advocate for three legislations and one of them was the continuance of the historic
1:51 am
preservation tax credits. what you may or may not know is that nationally we are going through a whole tax reform that's being pushed by ryan out of wisconsin. anyway, but today is a deadline and unfortunately it's too late for our commission to do anything, but senator loom nar, i'm sorry, congressman and turner from ohio have introduced legislation that would make the federal historic preservation tax credit permanent that would take it outside of the tax reform and they at the close of businesses the last day to actually reach out to our legislators. so i just wanted to bring that up if people can reach out before 5:00 eastern. >> what's the legislation? hr
1:52 am
what? >> i can forward that e-mail. yes. >> okay. that was one thing. the second thing is we met the cultural heritage assets committee met earlier today and had an update for you. >> christina from the small business office and was passed on march 10th. it's waiting for the mayor's office. it's the legacy business registry legislation. it did pass and waiting for the mayor's signature. the original legislation had tax included. it has been removed. the idea is that
1:53 am
as the legislation gets further and the small business commission, as it's being put into the purview of the small business commission there to bring back recommendations by -- september 30th of how this registry is going to be branded marketed. currently the tax incentives or any other kind of incentive that our committee is hoping to create as goals coming out of our effort is currently not in the legislation. they also changed the definition of a legacy would be and they changed that and added backen that it would be a business nominated by the mayor, board of supervisors or small business commission. that's another little tweak to the legislation. if it's a business that's been in
1:54 am
existence for 30 years with no break more than 2 years, then it will be eligible. it will be tools to -- to be nominated. we did have a good meeting. we had charted out our next 6 months. so for april, may and june we are going to have further presentations to our committee. in july we are going to try to pull those together and identify what the goals of our committee will be. in july and august try to create, right to reach out to more of the community neighborhood meetings. we are working with legal and with jonas about how we can attend the community hearings without while we are still adhering to the sunshine
1:55 am
ordinance requirement. >> commissioner hyland, if i may i actually conferred with our city attorney on that subject matter and she's actually here and prepared to respond to that. >> hi, victoria wong. city attorney's office. i think the legal requirements will depend on the exact format of the way in which the members of the committee wish to participate in the community meetings and whether these meetings are taking the place of regular hearings or you are there to just listen. so we can discuss the specifics of what you may have in mind or what the different possibilities are and what the public notice and other requirements would be based on those different scenarios. >> so lastly, i don't know where our advanced calendar in the agenda, i see it's scheduled for april 1st.
1:56 am
so we may need to reschedule the next hca meeting for the third, wednesday of the month. >> do we have an agenda item on april 1st? >> it's the 20th. >> two items on the agenda. >> okay. commissioner hasz? >> so just to going back a little bit i want to thank tim frye publically for my time as president and the amount of time tim put in to helping me reach these goals and putting up with my philosophy on stuff and why i would come to ideas and etc. any ways, tim, thank you very much. i appreciate all of your time. thank you. >> commissioners, if there is nothing further we can move on to your regular calendar. you have one item
1:57 am
agendaized item 7 for 2014-001501 crv, the presentation -- preservation alternatives policy. >> before i turn it to the planning with environmental division, i wanted to recap what we have addressed since our last hearing. there is a revised version in front of you that is different and it's a clean copy and slightly different than what was in the packet and we have some copies for the public. the only change between the two documents is the second paragraph of the preservation alternatives section. and the language is essentially the same, but the city attorney has helped us reword a few things just to
1:58 am
make it clear. so then that is there for your review. from the last hearing a few things that we addressed or we feel like we've addressed from the hpc and public comments is one. the preservation alliance to request cultural landscapes and i believe we were all copied on an e-mail that the alliance believe we have addressed their comments successfully. we've also included san francisco architectural heritages comments within the revisions while not word for word, we think we have addressed the substance of their comments but heritage is here and they can let us know if we have thought fully addressed what they believe should be included. and then finally the commissioners had a variety of comments as small edits that we have all incorporated but primarily
1:59 am
there was a broad discussion about facade retention. we left the meeting with an understanding that the commission wants to have a discussion about facade retention more as a design discussion, but will schedule that for a future date. at this time though as part of the resolution, there seems to be an interest in moving that facade retention discussion minimizing it and including it in the partial tournament. lisa is here to walk you through the resolution and any of the details that you think warrant discussion. but i'm also available for questions. thanks. >> good afternoon, congratulations to the new president and vice-president of the commission. i'm lisa gibson with the planning department. my walk through of the changes are very
2:00 am
brief because there are not too many to describe. starting with no. 1 under preservation alternatives. this is where we first addressed the changes reflecting the cultural landscapes, the preservation alternatives, the second line there, says that it would, if the project results in significant impacts on historical resource, it previously said structures. this is where we change the resource to be more broad. there are other locations where we did similar change in the second paragraph under preservation alternatives. the parenthetical where we changed from a building to a resource and further on there are several other locations where it went from structures to resource. also under item no. 1, preservation alternatives, we added some emphasis that alternatives don't need to
