10:30 pm
reasonable request for this commission i've made this before. you've done a number of sets of building that has been in front of this commission that's clear and basically for any architect particularly as you moved we're not requesting the dbi drawings this is the disclosure when you look at any other things you can see what we're expecting and i think staff has upheld it. it is ultimately in the electronic transfer yesterday which tips it over the scale i will hover when i opened them i realized i can't print them their 11 by 17 and i couldn't see a site plan so the real
10:31 pm
issue the meat of the dr is on the adjacent property to understand in the context and that drawings wasn't included. having said that there's a lot of material handed to us today and i believe there was enough notice for the architect and i don't think the plan has changed to add the requirements and then to hear recall fully so in support of the department the architect expects the department a print them and messenger them to us is too much. i ask we treat outline architects and applicants in front of us equally and 89.9 percent economy and in this particular case it's not okay. i would like to look at it
10:32 pm
>> commissioner antonini. >> i could be in support of this it's a complicated site. we need to look at it with all the ramifications of how it has to be there's complicated issues of the rear yard and other issues but it would be a good addition i'll be supportive of that maybe, sir maybe you can tell us about calendar. the dr requester didn't want it to be on the tenth but are reokay. on is 17th >> that's the unfortunate matters commissioner antonini april 10th would have been previous the calendar is light but tenth is cancelled because of holiday. april 1st i - may first, i
10:33 pm
closed this morning there were 7 retail formula scalding asked to calendar if you want to continue it to may 1st, you maine 8 is not likely either. this morning i closed may first, because of the edition of the formula recital. so it's one big formula recital >> we'll ask the commission to consider those. >> you have the formula retail excuse me. that's been continued but the housing and the district discussions on both of those dates. >> ms. gallagher do you want to
10:34 pm
comment on the date. >> i wanted to emphasize and bring up an alternated if you want to hear the merits the meats of the policy issues today and do a final action at a future time when everybody is present? no >> i appreciate that our challenge is the request from commissioner moore is time to digest of the materials that were handed to us today so we won't be able to have a full public hearing today. >> i'll be supportive at this time if things get too busy we can continue. >> things often come off the calendar. this will not preclude the withdrawal the dr and come back to you so that does preclude the
10:35 pm
she means to >> i am one of the neighbors i want to say on may 1st, i'm not viable i want to be here there's impact to my building too. >> thank you. we'll take into account. >> to the public there's an opportunity for general public comment at the end of the commission it just happens that opportunity will come sooner you making can make public comment. >> commissioners do you hear a motion. >> i move to continue to may 1st. >> second. >> commissioners, on the motion on the motion to continue item 13 to may 1st. >> commissioner antonini. commissioner borden.
10:36 pm
commissioner hillis. commissioner moore commissioner sugaya and commissioner president wu so moved, commissioners, that motion passes with commissioner commissioner hillis voting against as i talked about 1314 a on carolyn street that discretionary has been withdrawn and so at the conclusion of you're hearing the zoning administer will consider the variance so that bring you to general public comment. i i have no speaker cards. ma'am, if you wish to submit our comments now this is our opportunity >> while she's coming up are we to keep the materials. >> for 88 carolyn.
10:37 pm
>> offender for ashbury i believe you do. >> when you have been speaking sophisticating will turn on the projector. >> okay. thank you. >> hello, i'm a concerned neighbor i want to show some pictures. first, this is explaining my building is right her in the proposed project is two lots over. i'm sure you're aware of the house sits in the rear of the building. essentially my myself and other two owners in our attacking have 4 concerns about the plan the first is the proposed building is not comparable with the 0 neighborhood. as you see the building s are 3 stories at all and this is at 4 stories the building covers ups 080 percent of the lot.
10:38 pm
my preliminary concern is the impact on the light into my apartment. in this 3 unit building my apartment is in the rear and the only windows that get light are the south facing windows the kitchen and bathroom currently, i get light will 4 plus hours of the day because one at the 10 arching sits at the end of the lot this is from december 21st, 2013, not a lot of bright light open for about 4 hours. what happens with the proposed study and the proposed building now you can see 2:30 there's in the morning any light to my bedroom and permeate so there's
10:39 pm
one hundred percent elimination of sunlight and skylights not help because the shadows extend up to the roof as well. the concern number 3 we have myself and unit two because his bedroom window faces south is that with the new fourth story edition there will be eye line sight solos of privacy and concern 4 essentially the topgraphy of the lot is an upward slope it impacts the loss of light and privacy from the fourth story edition. so there was essentially a neighborhood competition encompassing the cycling area
10:40 pm
that supported to downsize the scale of the project. so ultimately we are asking the planning commission to make the changes to the proposal specifically that fourth floor is the major impact of the light and privacy >> thank you, ma'am your time is up. >> thank you - commissioner sugaya. >> yeah. could you submit those to the secretary. >> any future jumping. >> since the topic of plan came up i want to talk about a general issue i represent the sponsors and neighborhoods. i applaud you for asking for better plans you need plans to make decisions but what's happening is there's a greater difference between the plans.
10:41 pm
the neighborhoods get a 311 set of plans this is what you get this was a plan recently on a 311 it lacked reconcile any sexual zero squall. it lacked every indictment is was wrong in the elevation. i raised the issues it didn't follow the departments implicitly did a 311 really occur here if none of the qualifications for this plan occurred. i asked again and again please send this is what they sent the same thing with the small-scale and the plan yes, it's on 11 by 171 but tiny tiny thing with no
10:42 pm
indemnities you should see where the developers are doing when not asked >> thank you. >> i'd like to comment about a few of the things 3 that ms. gallagher brought up. i think it's important to have a standardized format that is being asked from the project sponsor to provide to the city. whatever is going out should be standard did i see to reduce the confusion. i was surprised to be given 36 hours to turn it around if we have this type of standardization all the information will be provided to the commission and no last
10:43 pm
minute continuance of plans. the other thing i want to address is the shadow study i met with the neighbor two door downstairs we went through the every most of the year hour by hour i spent two hours reviewing that and we've come to the conclusion there's two hours out of the year for a person - i still have is a minute and 45 minutes i can speak paralyzing i met with her and we discussed this in detail the result was a total an hour and a half two most out of the year i provided shadow studies i'll condition to provide shadow studies asia look forward to presenting my case >> any future general public
10:44 pm
comment. >> i'm sorry. >> because of the outburst that came out of the audience this is has been continued off the calendar so this is just an opportunity just as the woman who submitted her comments and i'm the architect i live in the ashbury and am glad commissioner moore recognized my face i try to make the projects compatible very briefly we're happy to provide the information several we'll make sure that gets done and work with the planning and my apologizes not having done that already. >> go ahead. >> thank you commissioner borden. >> so i know we've discussed
10:45 pm
the matters i've been talking to the commissioner we had new guidelines in our rolls for submission i want to whether understand who those met the guidelines if not do we need to update the guidelines. >> for the benefit of the commission those guidelines are obey upgrade and considered by design team. using this case ann as an example the teams have been ri78d the need diligence in reviewing the plans but even more so when a building application t iss circulated >> so the question is the guidelines have not been implemented to the project sponsor wouldn't have got those.
10:46 pm
>> those have not been formally added, however, the guidelines indicate the indemnities. >> so in the future if we don't have the time then let the project sponsor know. >> well quite honestly the issue shouldn't be calendar before. >> commissioner moore. >> i like the staff to say there's not extraordinary i asked about consistentlycy within the planning department procedure matters not a difficult thing to do about
10:47 pm
indemnities and this is what the commission looked like comparing the right of an applicant and the full right of somebody who has a grievance and the fox has to be crystal clear without boys to start with and take the argument and develop an understanding of who there's a rightful complaint are the dr is completely in compliance. it didn't take an einstein >> their met in a sense but not before. >> with that public comment is closed and the meeting is
