10:35 am
mcd with many uses are already requires the conditional use one one block the intersection of 18 and castro there are 3 existing paramedics and two medical service uses and for an aspect of a vibrant and thriving district it, it is the diversity and over concentration of the few uses particularly uses that are are not necessarily retail and unique in nature we want thriving retail uses and unique uses it can jeopardy the health of the neighborhood last year colleagues as you recall i sought the board of supervisors unanimously passed requiring the conditional use for medical services in 24th street
10:36 am
neighborhood commercial district those interim controls will louis the time to study how best to legislate a permanent solution for the over concentration of those types of used in the castro mcd i've distributed a few amendments adding some additional finding for the documents intent of those interim controls along the lines of the statement i just made be specifically relating to the mix of uses in the castro mcd the over concentration of little medical and paramedic uses and so forth so colleagues after public comment ask the community to forward this item with recommendation as a committee report thank you. >> thank you, supervisor wiener is it all right. if we go to
10:37 am
public comment at this time okay ladies and gentlemen, item 2 is up if you want to comment on this item please come forward. >> good afternoon i support a heath commercial corridor in the castro an essential is a health and safety corridor is a mix of uses and makes the neighborhood less interesting for businesses high-level of concentration in one such as pharmacies that is important a high-level of concentration for the uses of community to weigh no on what makes sense for the neighborhood conditional use authorization helps to insure the community voice is heard i think the emergency rooms will help sure the over concentrated pharmacy and uses i support those controls thank you for the murder approach for keeping the
10:38 am
health of the castro district i urge you to support the legislation. >> thank you anyone else all right. got at this time supervisor wiener there amendments. >> supervisor peskin may have a question. >> i was going to make a general comment around neighborhood commercial districts that is, i think as far as there are 20 neighborhood commercial districts throughout the city in all the supervisorial districts that is he generally my belief that constituents in each of the districts know what kind of taylor of the mcd controls are needed know when an over concentration so i would move the additional findings amendments and will be happy to send that item as a committee report to the for with a positive recommendation after supervisor wiener's comments all
10:39 am
were meant to be dynamic and were meant to adjust to the challenges of the time instance north beach is everything from ground floor financial $0.71 institutions that were meeting the neighborhood serving spaces and eventually put a limit neighborhood we've banned formula retail and cuffing are required and other formula retail uses so sounds like an over concentration of the pharmacy services 1, 2, 3, 4 the castro for the equitable balance that supervisor wieners controls make sense. >> i agree supervisor wiener they make sense and a motion by supervisor peskin and without objection that that item passes as amended thank you. >> adapting the amendments and
10:40 am
forwarding with recommendations. >> it was said thank you item 3. >> item 3 is a resolution imposing emergency rooms so for the space and conditional use authorization for the distribution and required use for the artists. >> thank you so colleagues on i'm the author and introduced this is to negotiate a legislative solution to the issues regarding the also have pdr and art space in the mission and south of market and instead of a ballot measure however, after several hearings at the rules committee and the discussion at the full board meeting it appears no desire to place the controls on excuse me - it appears there the desire for place the controls on the ballot in november so therefore after public comment we continue
10:41 am
this item through the chair so with that said open up for public comment. >> hi, thank you i really appreciate our listening to public comment and sorting the legislation as a ballot measure as one of the artists that is organizing the various arts organizations and artists to come together in light of the massive loss of diversity of creativity in the city and we even the legislative the ballot measure falls short of what we hope to get not only stop the bleed to figure out not just stop the bleed but the over gentrification and the multi culture and find a way inform encourage the culture
10:42 am
development and invite back the nonprofits we lyft the sierra club it was embarrassing to lose the artists and the diversity as well and so critical that we find ways to stop the bleed of the loss and try to find way to incentivizes the tax incentives and i appreciate everybody trying to workout or work together this is the first temple but not far enough and stop the approval in the pipeline the blanket approval and start to have a one to one replacement of pdr loss thank you. >> thank you anyone wish to comment on item number 3? okay public comment is closed. at this time >> thank you to the commenter
10:43 am
for rushing down colleagues i'm going to make a motion to continue to the through the chair may i have. >> without objection without objection this item passes unanimously madam clerk can you call item four and five and the that the commission does not tolerate outbursts of any kind of the board of supervisors to order the continental portion uses with within the phase that the park merced and item 5 a vacation of portions of the streets that exist one ab in the property development project. >> we have paul from dpw here to present on those items the floor is yours thank you. >> gadget chair members and thank you for the opportunity the park merced segment a large
10:44 am
multi phase and multi year development it is governed by the agreement in the case of the street vacation requests there tied in with the first two subdivision that was received by the public works in february of 2015 we circulated to all agencies including the develop of city planning and received the approval on august the 24, 2015 and granted pardon me august the 6 and granted tentative map approval which basically allows the project to proceed on august the 24th the project sponsor has requested that the city vacate portion the street to realign them i'll showing you the northwest portion of the project and be as you can see maybe
10:45 am
clearly a red patched in the patched area the green is what the city will receive in the future dedication and the red that is requested to be vacated the net gain to the city in conformance with the agreement the city gets a surplus the second portion - of the development area on the southeast corner of park merced area per and again we've got the red patched for the vacationed and the green to be dedicated portions the subdivision maps are the approval what is happening and condition future dedications and
10:46 am
street improvements as part of the progress if you have any questions specifically and any questions colleagues. >> i generally vote against evacuating the streets but this time a like for like and as part of a program that the board approved pursuant to the development agreement and unlike the matter that i descended in last week we remember giving up a city street and not replacing with another city street this situation is different i'll be supporting it. >> all right. thank you we're going to public comment oh, i'm sorry supervisor wiener. >> a question so the adjoin plan referral has two specific conditions in it the action today just to confirm by the committee and board will not
10:47 am
preclude the imposition on the final map; is that correct. >> yes, sir. conditions of approval on the tentative map in the past and the final maps will come up in the next few months 0 not recorded until those conditions from the planning department are met. >> okay. and does the department support or oppose any of the conditions. >> no. >> no we've endorsed those their included. >> so i think does the department support conducting and imposing. >> does the department of public works supportism posing those conditions. >> yes. >> any other questions we have a few actions to take but before that open up for public comment ladies and gentlemen, is there anyone that wants to speak on items four or five come up
10:48 am
seeing none, public comment is closed. so there's a few actions to take first action we need to amend item 4 the first action to - to include the date the board will sit as a committee to hear the street vacation this to the further resolve clause the resolution to state the board will hear it on september 6th as september 6th at 3 o'clock may i have have a motion to make the change. >> so moved. >> without objection the motion passes and thank you the second action is for item 5 must come out of committee with a without a recommendation but item 4 can move forward as a committee report so colleagues, i just want to
10:49 am
ask that item 4 before us today be moved as a committee report, however, pursuant to the standard practices an vacation item 5 needs to be forwarded to the full board to the september 6th meeting is there a motion on those two items? >> madam chair i'll move with recommendation as committee report for august 2nd and item 5 be moved with recommendation to the meeting of september 6th in the normal could you say of business. >> i appreciate that without objection. >> i - mr. gibner. >> without objection those motion pass unanimously any other commission? >> >> there's no further business. >> thank you the meeting is adjourned .
