2:30 am
play yard i'd like to see eld elevated particularly at the northeast plaza direct showed of a building that comes out for a exception and past the shadow that probably could be yielded would not be considered but it had been a code compliant project that note indeed create shadow 0 onto a space when i go to the mission not everyday is indeed a very active space with a different life every time he go there saturday night if i pass there on a friday afternoon and van ness and cob to the mission station it is a completely different community function i believe that that space has a right to be analyzed foreshadowing impacts i'd like to see that including what
2:31 am
sunlight means to the bart plaza i see people wait for their families to come off of bart mothers with their children and shopping things waiting there i want to see a larger discussion in this eir those were any comments at that moment and probably submit additional comments. >> commissioner hillis. >> i echo my fellow commissioners want to raise two quick issues after i think that is that would be great to look at the eir kind of maximum affordable housing alternative or variance land dedication that gets the affordable housing percentages increased it would be that would be helpful to look at that option as a variance alternative in the eir and then we heard a good deal
2:32 am
about parking and whether the parking is causing the building to be perhaps too high or bulky i don't think any of the alternative transportation looked at the no parking lot alternative but one that eliminates that and perhaps uses it for other uses and bring down the side of the building to reduce other impacts i ask you to add those. >> thank you my personal thoughts i've read the document here i guess the digest i started to delve into it what's the last date to submit comments. >> july 15th and the comment closes on july 5th assassinate
2:33 am
5 o'clock. >> i understand to understand tennis the beast on bryant last week this project was affordable percentage and they need to comply with the codes the current code i don't have the specific information at this time. >> okay. okay thank you. >> but we would provide whatever it available. >> thank you i agree with commissioner hillis that on affordable housing maximize affordable housing would be a good thing to understa i do think that the transportation 10 years ago when the eastern neighborhood plan was adopted and constructed was very different world i really want to understand whether or not we're dealing with in terms of google buses ride hale apps and out mitigation and in
2:34 am
immigration whether on acid test and the vehicle miles traveled we don't understand the bmt for the immigration i'd like to see that i have a hard time having a development sitting on top of a bart station having no parking other than car share it didn't feel right. i sat in the eastern neighborhoods construction and adoption and came up well but .4 spaces is way too high i know that people own cars we talk about the future for when those parking spaces have no use they'll not have use and time to figure that
2:35 am
out and understand why this much parking is asked for on top of bart's station with people for housing and also talking about environmental issues and things like that yet we see projects that don't sit on top of van ness bart and a muni station had a 5 ratio i didn't support i don't understand - i understand the environmental is c the raised playground in section h at the end of the report, however, significant unavoidable the school gets a structure they could use for different other activities on top of what is the playground would still have shadow impacts but don't understand any alternative that is available beyond that that could myth that
2:36 am
i don't understand permanent or personally i'm not a father and no children that maybe someone can talk about the lack of sunlight on school-aged conditioner with going back to a 10 by 10 room with their family some of the children do get during the day or after school could be avoided but i understand the additional active room structure is good for the school and the children as well i don't have the mission interim controls under which this project is subject i know in that document for a project for the cu would grants are not granted it talks about the effect on a host of issues which a good portion of them a soica
2:37 am
economic how it impacts the displacement of businesses so even though we don't have a soica economic component in under ceqa the interim controls should pickup that up there was an report for the emeralds a sub component he read it when i first became a commissioner that was not adopted i want to understand the interim controls overlaying it how document or on the money and help to inform whatever documentation needs to be handed in under our sdmdz something i'm raise that issue for the other issues mentioned by the conversion of the sro hotels to tourist hotels on
2:38 am
short-term rentals all that needs to be turned in to into the enforcements planning and planning department we understand exactly what is happening i think the short-term rentals legislation that was passed should go a long time with the interim controls up to thirty days the other portion of this we have approved demolition of a multi story building down to the frame next to a school willing over the top of a school in the neighborhood i'm concerned again, the health of the children i want to make sure that the plan the project sponsor has for the construction all that stuff a well documented and he had community understand that should this project move forward i think that is the third project we've had literally next to a school
2:39 am
probably one of the bigger ones we have the second biggest we're not demolishing a big building we are demolishing a small one but the healthy is a paramount concern and probably have additional comments by july 5th thank you for coming out today commissioner moore. >> one additional comment i'd like to add that is i'd like to see as to who it elevates the playground with a proper response to playground i'm concerned that in the long run noise impacts will be xrand by the neighbors sitting above the playground good school buffer their schools with landscaping
2:40 am
and i'd like the eir to find the analogs in the long run between what we encourage to be an each time we should be prepared so have reading this environmental impact report provides that is indeed a viable each time not to talk about the winds impacts these are small children only one sport place i know in the bayview that's at tense court eased uc berkley up telegraph avenue and it is a parking garage a tense court on the top and most people laugh about that it was done way back in the 60s and early san jose and a good idea didn't work here adults playing
2:41 am
on top of a garage wanted to be explored children's playground are loud they're loud that's the nature of what they are we i have no speaker cards. understand if there are impacts. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah. once again i think that is important as we go to comments and responses staff try to subsequent traffic patterns and we really have to look at some numbers and subtion has to how ohio how the developments since the time of the community plan with the eastern neighborhoods eir was complete and the final thing is although this is way ahead of us we have
2:42 am
to look at the architecture and make sure it is conceptually and fits in with the mission district and this is a massing usually the case yeah. something that has that's right something that has a little bit more of the revival style in the mission district probably a lot better facade. >> okay one last closing comment to the members of the public i don't know what the gosh i'm losing my train of thought marvel the marvel how much shadows it indicatcasts whateve marvel looks like there that be environmental impact with a no project alternative so whatever
2:43 am
