3:00 pm
public works to submit prove that proper notice was given the department of public works did provide that documentation to the board on october 13th 2015 as to the merits of that case, i would note i guess it's been noted the appellants are not presents that is consistent with the fact that although they filed an appeal not a brief in support of the appeal prior to the last hearing nor in other papers in between the only ground that was mentions in that one-package document the original notice of appeal was concerns about radio frequency emissions the board is aware and bryan indicated to the board singles the prior hearing at the time of the prior hearing federal law and specifically refer to section 332 of the
3:01 pm
title 47 of the u.s. code part of the telecommunications act forbids the city and/or county or state to deny the permit for the wireless facilities based on any concerns regarding radio frequency emissions moving of moving beyond that castle conformed with the city's requirement regarding the emissions as you may know from the record a submit to the report from a qualified professional engineer the facility compiles with the standards it does see and in fact, the maps allows the emissions on one percent of accountable frequency because of notice issue that was on the boards minded was addressed i object to speak to any questions
3:02 pm
that the board might have. >> okay. >> anyone here on behalf of the appellants? >> seeing none, any public comment on many item commissioners, the matter is submitted. >> >> question for ms. short. >> i assume that was one of the accurate permits. >> that's right. >> thank you. >> well, i'll start ought to be consistent i think that the permit was issued if error and equipment on both poles and radius should ethics commission have gone out to one 50 radius of both locations the department reflects the first one. >>was issued in error.
3:03 pm
>> is there a motion? >> what would it be? >> remember back to the definition of what required notice in the type equipment they said that the what was it the - charge or something didn't have to be noticed. >> it was ambiguous regarding the equipment that on one pole they felt it was only specific - >> units. >> a battery. >> battery pack yeah. >> yeah. >> so the primary equipment those was on one pole.
3:04 pm
>> so far as i am concerned, it is one pole. >> can you help me director. >> you're asking to grant the appeal and deny the permit on the basis the notice was defective; is that correct. >> thank you. >> then we have that motion by the vice president commissioner fung no. >> commissioner president lazarus. >> no commissioner swig there's a vote of 2 to 2 on that motion so that fails bargaining any other motions the permit will be absolved by default. >> do you want to carry it over for additional - >> commissioners will not make a difference only 4 votes to the motion. >> sorry. >> okay.
3:05 pm
>> so move on to the next item appeal rosemary versus the department of building inspection with the planning department powerful protesting the issuance to gregory and ann of an entertainment commission permit to construct changes to front stairs and reconfigure the stairs to stairs of landing the hearing was held on july 2015 and on for further consideration today, the matter was continued to allow the permit holder to prepare the consolidated plans and commissioners those plans are in our packet and my understanding is the party have reached on agreement noted 100 percent sure but representative from each side to step forward and address the board on the
3:06 pm
agreement they would like you to help them do yoadopt. >> hi my name is matthew representing gregory and ann can as of this week we came into a agreement with rose on a couple different items regarding this permit we've consolidated the plans reviewed them with a couple members of planning including scott sanchez and come to an agreement of the restrictions with rose and as far as we understand we're in agreement on those aspects the primary thing is just making sure that dpw reviews the stair.
3:07 pm
>> good evening. i'm rose the property owner on fifth after the adjacent property we did review the plans and have a plan i believe that meets the city planning requirement as well as my moaning own a concern about the as built stairwell it encroaches on public sidewalks so the reason for the asking dpw with whoever the appropriated agency within the city planning or inspectors to look at before the plans are updated to make sure no improvement on the public sidewalks as in the stairwell and as noted the plans upon the plans, however, i do want to call out in may of 2014 we did also agree upon a set of plans
3:08 pm
the concerns were brought up in the last appeal hearing was that the execution of those plans did not conform to what was in the plans in terms of what was built was vast different than in the plan and covered in great detail at the last hearing the important point wife agreed on a plan and time to make sure we execute those plans and the only caveat to the plan to commence the work to make sure that stairwell was positioned now is not on public space. >> thank you. >> and thank you for working things out. >> this agreement is based on the plans submitted to us? >> yeah. >> i want to ask the first
3:09 pm
speaker provide us with a speaker card so we have your name shall we hear in the department mr. sanchez anything on this. >> scott sanchez planning department the department has no problem with the revised plans revised plans are code compliant and not being built according to the plan we expect what was matched with the plan and be informing with the code and plans and in particular the issues related to the permit of the doorway it should be built and if that is the cased we'll be okay. >> thank you mr. sanchez. >> mr. duffy. >> joe duffy dbi i did have a discussion with respond that he dbi current member someone
3:10 pm
representing the permit holder and the encroachment on the sidewalk came up that was something that the dpw will deal with it is into the public sidewalks the permits got reviewed by at finally by clinton a ground checker and have inspectors if it is encroached dpw will have an issue. >> is there a notation for them to be aware. >> the plans were inside the property line not anything on there but dpw signed off required prior to dbi so dpw will need to sign off prior to the dbi board of directors on the main permit in 2013 an issued permit not signed off yet
3:11 pm
i'm not sure but the appellant could let dpw know that there would be potentially an issue okay. >> so what i'm hearing is that the current as built stairway was not to the built but has been built is currently encroaching on the public right-of-way. >> that's what their claiming. >> so what do we do formally or who does it formally to make a request to dpw to do a survey to share assure that the current as built stairway is not encroaching on the public right-of-way. >> it could come from dbi or the appellant. >> what is your suggestion
3:12 pm
because your objection before and what kind of rank my bell a little bit was note earlier and that is the it was kind of ran glad building the plans were one thing and the structure turned out to be something sixth different so we had the option i believe to ask the owner of the building to tear the whole thing down so i think it would be appropriate for us to assure on behalf of the appellant and the neighbor that one it gets built according to plan but two we request proper action to make sure that dpw does a survey to
3:13 pm
protect public interests. >> that's fine i believe that the plans are i believe showing all the work within the property line but we can certainly i mean dpw needs to go out and inspector that before dbi those are most permits with garages and part of progress and probably i could take it upon myself to contact the gentleman and make sure that it was - as strong inside the property line and not on the public way there may be a way to allow that i mean a matter of encroachment i don't know that is not example they got approved. >> i would feel for comfortable the board is protecting the public interest by insuring that when something is built at and according to
3:14 pm
plans and according to what we approve and did not invade the public space and i totally agree yeah. >> i would add the following commissioners that the weather action this board takes if it is acceptable to this board then those documents would not have to be that any type of motion to continue with the permit and to its finalization the permit documents that are included shows within the property line yeah. >> i'm only addressing the one issue not the issue of whether it was serial permitting or something else that was going to
3:15 pm
be determined by dpw they still have to sign off the other issue of whether conforms to the document now, some scrutiny brought to that i have no comment on whether the issue of renegade buildings is an issue. >> okay. thank you. >> the most. >> first any. >> sorry. >> that's okay. no public comment and you have a last comment or a question. >> yeah. >> we did actually ask the permit holder to include the as built drawings they denied that saying that was not required for the permit to be approved by city planning so i don't know
3:16 pm
from the prrlz has the jurisdiction in terms of how this plan is executed we have reached terms and with all due respect we've tried to engage him in the process that led up to the structure of this today so i guess the real concern i have as the neighbor and the public just whatever we need to do to insure that the plans and permits are executed in terms of guidance or oversight from this board and we do have additional photos we didn't include another piece was not to be submitted but i think the other picture in the packet clearly show a clear possibility what is already there not in conformity with the
3:17 pm
submitted plans. >> again i'll ask from the board to know how they'll provide oversight or make sure that is executed correctly. >> island i'll add the department of dbi will have the responsibility to make sure that is conforming to what is submitted in not conformed then they'll have to file a permit additional be repealed and jurisdiction maintained by this board okay. >> question. >> so if you wish to adopt this request from the parties you'll have to grant the appeal and issue the permit with the revised plan and state a reason because the parties have reached an agreement. >> sounds good to me. >> is that your motion. >> that's my motion and to be
3:18 pm
specific this is the revised plans october 21st, 2015, on that motion by the president commissioner fung commissioner honda. >> commissioner swig thank you very much commissioners that motion carries then item 8 has been continued to november 4th so we're on to item 9 versus this zoning administrator the property on 650 protesting the issuance on september 23rd of a letter of determination the current legal use is a two residential building not established at the property we'll start with the appellants 7 minutes to present our case weather is going to speak step forward. >> good evening.

3:21 pm
>> mines the room in the back and the upstairs and the commercial in the front i'm confused on the what i have it in the city i want to fix it to continue to use it commercial the fronts community facility either with the backroom or without the backroom the commercial and the upstairs house the flat. >> thank you. >> you've owned this. >> yes. >> for a long time and yes. >> did you recollect ref the two notices talking about non-conforming commercial sent to you by two different zoning administrator's. >> we never saw anything no paper nothing this came to our way to know. >> but you've eendz this
3:22 pm
property. >> we've owned this property for a long time yeah. >> 7 or 8. >> thank you thank you. we kept using it as commercial we didn't know. >> thank you and you can take those papers with you. >> mr. sanchez. >> thank you scott sanchez planning department i think the facts in this case are clear we outlined them clearly in your letter of determination the subject property was originally a single-family dwelling above ground level commercial the space was a non-conforming use with the provisions the blood the planning code in 19 that 8 the planning department and mr. steel sent a notice to the property owner of the termination date and the status non-conforming status was termed
3:23 pm
in february of 1993 the then zoning administrator issued a letter which has the materials regarding the building permit and the letter states the non-residential space of the ground floor can't be retained it was expired and the letter states the property is for residential dwelling units in an rh2 zoning district that didn't permit the commercial use the ground floor area can't be used for a commercial laundry and dry sclaern or other industrial uses and that was approved and issued to legalize ground floor a second dwelling unit on the property in addition to the building permit that was substantially renewed and completed a notice of special refresh my recollection was recorded on the deed avenue
3:24 pm
property by the property owner stating that the legal use of property was either a two family twenl this was recorded in the assessors officer by the property owner on the deed of their property preempting restricting and noticing the use is only a two family typically with no commercial use again recorded by the property owner on the property so under the planning code under the building permit the notice of special restrictions a illegal a two single dwelling they're seeking to remove that whether or not it was used as a dwelling unit over the years but they're seeking to remove a dwelling unit through their actions and restore a commercial use where one is not allowed to
3:25 pm
exist so it is clear we have the documents that were submitted and i'm available to answer any questions thank you. >> they're asking to remove a dwelling unit or add a experimental to two dwelling units. >> based on the arguments this is only a single-family dwelling no this of. >> no, no my question is she brought up alternatives she could go to one with between and one commercial unit i wasn't sure whether this meeting room occupied the entire ground floor or partially. >> the property owner a can explain that but there is no local use of community room that was noted in the zoning administrator's decision in 19933 that building permit in
3:26 pm
the review we don't have evidence of that legally on the ground floor. >> mr. sanchez how do the that come about a complaint. >> the gentleman requested a letter of depreciation that was unifying provoked by your department. >> what did you ask for . >> we respond to the letter of depreciation and issued the letters with the facts and attachment dozens of pages of them and that was appealed to this board. >> a followup question enforcement so f currently non-warranted non-used what happens if they continue to do so. >> we'll pursue enforcement double check our file not an actual complaint at a time yeah, we'll then pursue enrollment.
3:27 pm
>> what would be the enforcement. >> their had been two enforcement cases on the property relate to unpermitted fences so nothing related to subject use and the enrollment process will state the legal use it a two go family typically they need to restore that and we'll pursue the enforcement that results to penalties up to $250 a day. >> thank you any public comment? >> you have rebuttal please step forward. >> i have one flat and the commercial downstairs and everybody in the secession inspector know me and my plays and it has been there a long time 27 years and never stopped me we want to continue to use the community facility thank you and
3:28 pm
i appreciate your understanding it has not been residential only commercial i want to continue commercial you like to have more residents i could add another one i want to keep this one as a commercial i hope your understanding i'm helping the community too. >> i have a question the zoning administrator received the special restrictions you filed on the property do you recall those. >> notice of special restrictions maybe. >> when. >> 1993. >> which kind of a special restrictions. >> concerning the use of property. >> no, i don't know anything about that. >> well, you filed. >> what we understood the backroom and bath could be used as a unit and the commercial commercial so we have 3 that was said and he fixed it and we
3:29 pm
continue to use is that way all those years. >> a residence on the first floor. >> room and a back and that will be - >> so it is a room and bath no kingdom kitchen. >> we're going to use it as a coffee area like an office. >> ms. goldstein will share this notice you don't recall. >> i have a question perhaps of the council our one lawyer is not here and a lease will not be described a lease you said you lease with someone. >> not necessarily a
3:30 pm
contractual document. >> so notice to a party's all right. thank you. >> the business license would help but that's not disputed that would be helpful. >> it is independent of the site. >> no, i think they only indicate a use that was in place not necessarily that it is illegal. >> right. >> the paperwork for the record or the what he explained to us in the room in the back we could use it as as upstairs unit we kept on using it and everybody knows about it. >> thank you. >> okay is there more times left sir, you can speak. >> good evening thank you for this opportunity state your name for the record.
3:31 pm
>> we didn't they especially\change the style of the building that front so the empowering is the same way since 20 or thirty years ago at the time they pulled the permit a problem in the plubing and probably pulled the permit to fix the plumbing in the backroom they had to fix something that was why and someone explicit inform them or not clear the signing the paper maybe shift the way this property works if you look at the property it looks like commercial front ends we're not interested when they bought the property at the time thes they knew that was commercial that's the purpose of buying it they don't intend to open a grocery or restaurant to each year e keep it something to do with kids they're not interested in
3:32 pm
making a brick and mortar business at this point thank you, ma'am. >> mr. sanchez. >> any rebuttal. >> thank you scott sanchez planning department so 1992 permit shows the entire ground floor as residential no commercial use at all the notice it it special restrictions is very explicit to that of the ground floor the entire ground floor being residential the property owner has innovates indicated otherwise the 3-r report are generated at the time of sale that's a code enforcement they've owned the property quite a long time they've said they have a 3-r report i've not seen
3:33 pm
that there has been more half a dozen permits since the 1992 and all say 2 single-family dwelling the facts are clear in this case that is legally a two family building and based on this is no commercial use the legal commercial use was termed and subsequent to that the permit was sought to establish the between on the second floor as allowed by the zone and they accident see and filed a notice of special restrictions the property owner name in the document and yeah that's all i can say. >> mr. sanchez ii should have disclosed i went online to do a 365 and across the street is a building that looks like this and it looks like a commercial grocery store
3:34 pm
why is that why was that grocery store do you think allowed to continue as the whole neighborhood and my understanding and my reading was rezoned to for bid that same thing. >> the planning code does allow for certain limited commercial use to be remained those are less intense retail used ligrocery stores so it is e limited provisions of the planning code that's been operated consistently and never sought a permit to convert it to the between in this case. >> the key phrase in our response to me serve the community which seems to me a thought which is being offered by the owner of the building and
3:35 pm
what their intent to serve the community it also when i'm hearing also is that there was work done and the proper permit was initialed a contractor who is doing the work advised someone that was misinformed to sign this document here and give up all and clear you know that you're giving up the rights and then low and behold a decade or so later the property owner and i'd like to know why spontaneously wanted to clear the or make educators on the use they files a piece of paper they're being
3:36 pm
pushed. >> what about the prior notifications and that's the hard part. >> a question for the da. >> in terms of neighborhood serving uses that a legally a between that is a neighborhood dwelling use on a daily basis basis losing dwelling units so i think that serves a reasonable function also in terms of the property owner sought a permit in 1992 that permit had on it establishing the legal use of ground floor as a residential use the notice of special restrictions is not something counter signed and they have to go personally to the assessors office to record on the deed of property those conditions and
3:37 pm
pay a fee to do that typically so i think there is a process involved certainly the property owner can say whatever they're saying to you at the board but the fact are very clear about what has happened this is a legal unit as part of housing stock they're seeking to remove that and what their thrilling their goal to have this great neighborhoods serving function there's no permit before you to do that they were seeking to have that dwelling unit be removed be expunged from the record and at this point what any commercial use allowed will it be considered a limited use cafe maybe a usable the building has historically had uses the appearance in that case this is not thinking common in san francisco in some cases people
3:38 pm
that take the uses and converted them to residential unit and a terrible persistence or preepsz to say someone went through the process decided they said or don't want to go through the proper process section 317 they can go ahead but not back to a commercial use this is a zoning district that doesn't have a lot of commercial uses i appreciate your clarity and your instruction and education of for me understand totally and clearly so - if they wanted to file if they wanted to sustain that as a
3:39 pm
non-brick and mortar that is their terms retails use that is a cafe or anything but in - in fact, they wanted to establish it through the filing of that 317 a non-permanently non-retail use a. >> but with conditional use
3:40 pm
authorization they could seek the conditional use authorization to have a legal use as part of that seat to have the dwelling unit removed. >> if we deny their appeal and they want to pursue that direction that would be the direction they will take not a closed book they still have the tubtsz to go back and be clear and specific non-retail use under the umbrella of a church or temple of a community-based situation. >> absolutely to declare a better determination responds to a specific question asked they especially\ask how they could establish an institutional use of property they i think the letter that was submitted had been in the absorption they were a limit commercial use and could restore as a commercial use we clarified
3:41 pm
that in our letter. >> i punishment are appreciate our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boardunishment are ap our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boanishment are appre our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boaishment are apprec our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boashment are apprecir education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boahment are apprecia education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boaent are appreciate education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boant are appreciate education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boat are appreciate o education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boa are appreciate ou education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boaare appreciate our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boare appreciate our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boae appreciate our education of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boa appreciate our edn of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boaappreciate our edu
3:42 pm
of me and your advice and actually mr. sanchez. >> this boards advertised a lever of determination overturned not allowed for use right. >> yes. >> in other words, it didn't the denial excuse me. the over turning of this finding didn't grant them necessarily the commercial use but has to go through the process. >> this is not an action, an is before this time but hospitals dwelling units depending on the boards decision if it finds this is legally not two dwelling units they will need to come in for a building permit to show it is two dwelling units and you know we'll have to go through the process we will want to consultant with the city attorney's office the best way to proceed and whether do a dr because the city's records shows it as two dwelling units. >> i understand all that i'm saying they're still additional process. >> yes. but i mean certainly i don't know what the basis of boards decision or direction. >> that's neither hooerl. >> to approve a permit that show see that is legally a use we don't have on city records?
3:43 pm
>> i don't know what the expectation of the board to make a decision to overturn the recommendation and what it would be. >> i don't have any i don't intend to go that way. >> (laughter). >> he knows if i go that way i'll have an answer for him. >> thank you. >> commissioners, the matter is submitted. >> and just as a reminder under the standard. >> i'm prepared to make a motion. >> move to deny the appeal on the basis that the zoning administrator neither errored or used incorrect discretion. >> that motion commissioner fong commissioner vice president honda commissioner swig thank you that motion carries 34
3:44 pm
to zero and commissioner president lazarus there's no further business. >> in that case we're adjourned. >>
3:45 pm
3:46 pm
3:47 pm
3:48 pm
>> gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. and welcome to the san francisco transportation authority mom meeting i'm supervisor wiener the chair and mr. clerk. >> roll call commissioner avalos supervisor breed supervisor campos supervisor christensen
3:49 pm
supervisor cowen supervisor farrell supervisor kim absent supervisor mar. >> supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee we have quorum. >> okay. thank you very much we will now go do the chair's report colleagues i have several update for the regional and local levels you may have seen after the months of reporting congress failed to pass the transportation authority budget we'll have a mutilate services authorization next month as sooeps to the short time measures the house and senate passes the reformation and
3:50 pm
overall the house bill is better than the senate that is less transit funding for the bay area our staff at the transportation authority and the mtc are both working to avoid any reduction agency those bills are reconciled the congressional leaders want this before the 2016 expiration and more fun and games in washington, d.c. through the detriment of transportation and other critical needs interestingly an amendment during the house floor debate will provide extra $40 billion by locking down the capital reserves this is in conference and maybe possible to fund for 5 years rather than the of years that is a plat funding level i want to applaud the 40 major organizations including the
3:51 pm
american transit association the u.s. chamber of commerce and labors and trade used that are recommending the higher level of funding of it means pga a shorter 5 year bill and keeps up with inflation and as noted in the industry groups quote holding the transportation at or blow the power levels will not create the york congestion in the transportation and the we urge the congress and president obama to get that passed the mtc this month has the best way to coordinate the sustainable strategy in the bay area we agreed to look at a full mtc abag merger this will bring our region into a similar structure
3:52 pm
of other metropolitan organizations across california but requires a careful thinking how we in san francisco are recommended in the framework and i've made clear i will not be supporting any 3450erger that jeopardizes or undermines the need of our large city in the bay area that process is ongoing we need to have some sort of inclusion by june of next year and at a local level i'm struck by the progress our transportation agrees are making in planning and project delivery both small and large last week, a meeting for the environmental review that process has taken far too long we are nearing the end the construction of van ness pedestrian underpass sfmta
3:53 pm

3:57 pm
seek transportation isolated or justice isolated it is enter tweend the grassroots if the bottom-up was excellent in looking at an equality less than not only transportation but many other policies and development without displacement policies the cost had the black lives matter around the country it is inspiring and it was important i also began to see san francisco oakland santa fe and san raphael as a major section as other cities and metropolitan adrenalin talked about their work we're the fifth go largest metropolitan adrenalin the $8 million or soon to be 9 million people is the fifth bringing behind la and chicago

3:59 pm
a major transportation harming their ability to link up the sgathd city of nashville it is 25 percent african-american or more than that they're almost invisible in the country music and tv and hollywood it is seeing how the transportation policies address the equality that the lack of equality that exists in nashville i want to see if there is anything egg to add like the bike sharing the transportation caucus getting together with people work only anti displacement or transportation in the context of anti displacement make those gathered so valuable and helps me to do my work here with a better race and class and gender and neighborhood equality plans
