11:44 pm
>> hi lisa of the liberty hill association some of us made it clear to the foundation they need a workable transportation plan we mediating met and proposed they insensitive vices so staff could access public transit we've asked for shuttle for patients and staff and improvements in the valencia park and last minute response our proposals were dismissed instead their securing the parking spaces for the residents on valencia when you pay two to $3 million for a condo you're not going to be sub leasing our parking
11:45 pm
garage and attempting us with the same lease scheme at the over full embarcadero garage and it's been abandon all those negotiations are for the convenience of the doctors and technicians it's assuming they'll drive to work it's noting nothing it easy the burn burden for the rest of the staff those are unenforceable and unacceptable solutions this facility will become a parking magnet and only contribute to travel congestion our narrow streets like 20 and 21st traffic congestion is cumulative and growing with every new condo and retail space in the hill and our fear is that the lines of cars on those streets make it difficult and
11:46 pm
dangerous for emergency vehicles to pass those those streets are narrow we never meant to hold the amount of traffic when the river gets narrow the flow is a trickle and then add more traffic the flow stops the primary care is in the wrong place st. luke's is only 6 blocks away 7 hundred square feet for one doctor and 4 hundred square feet store competing with numerous nearby valencia shops wouldn't make a healthy neighborhood we don't want the neighborhood to be used by st. luke it will be gent if i had in a neighborhood that is
11:47 pm
more and more awe influenced please delay the authorization until there's a clear assessment on the da. >> commissioner president fong i'm bob apprentices i'm here for the jobs and just the coalition of over 50 labor coalitions that is actually and - i'm guessing one of the letters was one of the ones we sent thank you we're - the concern we have this scope of this is not just about a conditional use authorizations but it has potential implementations for an agreement we're hoping outline consider that as you make your decision about this and i'm referring specifically to the reference to the construction of a medical office building that is on the
11:48 pm
site of the current hospital once the new hospital is completed they'll raise the hospital and build an office building there is a contingency it will needle a commitment of agreements of 75 percent occupancy of the new building it is a uncertainty what we're hoping that you along with the health department that shares the monitoring of the agreement will make an assessment of the potentially implementation of this on the conditions that leads to the construction of the medical office building our request you'll defer the decision on this would ask the health department to work with the reasonable projections about the prospects of creating a medical office building and what the clinic applies for that
11:49 pm
thank you. >> good afternoon commissioner johns and the rest of the commission my name is taken place steven i'm. an architect on lexington 2 hundred feet from the proposal on the corner of 20th and valencia the strongly oppose the project on the basis of the scale of the project the size of the project, is more than twice what was agreed upon of the b project about four or five years ago and more independent small retailers along valencia street the model is working on 20th and 8th project we want to see that yes ma'am last day in
11:50 pm
the may 21st meeting i thought commissioner johnson commissioner wu and commissioner hillis we have a good discussion about independent vendors and what constitutes independent merchant the number of doorways and the independent retail along valley street what makes it vibrate the designation retail is different than the designation health care you will not with a sick child not stroll for 4 hours and sild suddenly take your child in for a area act or blood work the parking streets on 20th and valencia are very different the analysis of off-street parking there's been slithering o pack at the moment the number of condo owners that
11:51 pm
will give up parking spaces on 20th and vanessa e valencia is not vetted to c pmc center staff we transmittal ask that going back to the may 21st meeting that more independent storefronts are truly not part of this project tether this to st. luke's 6 blocks away the salvation army sites deeper into the mission if you truly want to serve or serve the disserved or help st. luke's the sites between the 3 hundred radius are necessary thank you. >> kilogram
11:52 pm
natural union the health care workers we're asking you today to defer this decision until you can work with the health department to come up with solutions to the problems. implementing c pmc has reached their agreement with the van ness property and from the units prospective i think the nurses will agree there are problems with the da that c pmc has not fulfilled the traffic issues are under c pmc they agreed to pay for clipper cards for employees they've not lived up to that this matter needs more attention and hold their feet to the fire on this issue so, please defer to the health department and come back at another date thank you
11:53 pm
>> i must have forgotten a card. >> i'm david i spoke last time as a independent rarmentd on valencia i'm here reporting the coalition we're oppose the conditional use permit we've met with the proponents and were unwilling to work with the plan suggested by the planning commission it faces to live - they've made no attempt to address the concerns that the commissioners brought up at the last hearing their solutions were rendering the bart images of offering trees on the sidewalks plaza balances their noting refusing to be good neighbors we believe there is a need for this type of
11:54 pm
service and welcome them to the neighborhood if it they find better spaces there are vacant spaces a block away as for the c u hearing the commercial spates be broken into smaller spaces for the appropriate for retail and to combine is into one retail is a step in the wrong direction respectfully b c m a. >> commissioners good afternoon peter cohen council of community housing organizations i promise that is the last item i'm here for today i thought i would be here for a short time thank you, thank you you've
11:55 pm
heard speakers very long and detailed development agreement that was negotiated over a period of time and to the previous couple of speakers point it is important to not see this independently of the campus expansion and how they relate to each other the medical companions that c mc have are related to each other even though their listed as independent from ground level to make sure you're taking our time and looking at the this with the hunt to understand it's implication with st. luke and the committee how they trigger each other's movement forward is not to suggest it is to make sure you're doing it right and i also want to make a point as a
11:56 pm
civilian, if you will, on the corridor i'm a bicyclist this is a high injury corridor a lot of bike traffic one of the things i live on noah street it there is a lot of traffic and tendency for a lot of drops off it didn't matter if someone is stopping for 30 seconds or thirty minutes by the tendency for shuttle or folks dropping off patients or a doctor running in it high how it is migrated i'm sure the promotions promoter will say shouldn't be underestimated an emphasis to fidget how this activity fits in a dense
11:57 pm
urbanized 1ri6r789 where we're promoting pedestrian and bicyclist activity thank you. >> sue hester i want to follow up on the commenters that raised the issue of c pmc and st. luke's hospital it is where it came into planning dealing with the oldsmobile days what you have here is a facility you have the large amount of money to develop a place they can develop a decent place and not on valencia this is should be one of the things that the planning commission looked at valencia is a neighborhood retail street the eastern neighborhoods plan, which that commission approves this project they focused on
11:58 pm
small-scale retail that's a lifeblood of the mission on valencia street we have a different type of construction and space on mission street than valencia street their taking the valencia centers spate for a mission street size sea it doesn't pedestrian traffic is not don't want on this facility the developer will be happy he has a fixed budget they'll be paying their rent and not have the problems that retail tenants have i understand the motivation for the developer he makes auto like a bandit he gets a deep pocket client with no problems you should be concerned about how valencia will work valencia needs to work as a
11:59 pm
retail designation in small spaces the people if you take the facility like this and plop it down it hurts the other people around it c p n or mc could move to mission street and do an numerously great program in another location this should be not your consideration your consideration is what is best for planning or the neighborhood what's best for your deal for many years on c p m for st. luke's what's best for the retail development volunteer streets it's uniting in my neighborhood, too i live in bruno heights i'm asking you to stop this is not what we had in
12:00 am
mind for this location when we diverse individual up the retail space go to another place c pmc you can do it they have enormous resources. >> is there any additional public comment. >> public comment is closed. and commissioner antonini. >> yeah. it's interesting we hear option defending all the high-end valencia street that are the target of opposition themselves so it is kind of i'm sure there would be equal or other arguments on mission street or close to the st. luke's it has more trench with the medical office building but tenth the mission is under south side of when i was in dental school
