APPEAL NOS. 88-293/4/5
NOTICE OF DECISION ON SCOPE OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT
FOR PROJECT AT 959 POWELL/8 WETMORE STREETS
To: Parties on attached list
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Permit Appeals has conducted a public hearing for the purpose of determining the scope of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) as required by the Superior Court, Case No. 908-819. The hearing was held on June 5, 1991 between 4:00 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. in Room 282, City Hall. After taking testimony the Board voted 5-0 upon a motion by Commissioner Makras to recommend that the EIR required by the Superior Court have five alternative proposals in it and have a scope as described by the Environmental Review Officer in her letters to the Board dated May 8, 1991 and August 15, 1990. The five alternatives should cover: (1) a project with fewer units; (2) a project with less height; (3) a project with the existing 12-unit apartment house retained; (4) a project in complete compliance with the Planning and Building Codes; (5) a project retaining the number of affordable dwelling units presently existing on the site.
After completion of the EIR process the Board of Permit Appeals shall schedule a rehearing of Appeal Nos. 88-293/4/5. The Board shall rescind its vote of March 1, 1989 on the three matters at that time and shall adopt a new decision, this time after consideration of the EIR. The Superior Court shall retain jurisdiction for 60 days following the Board’s decision.
Any questions concerning this or any permit appeal matter can be directed to the staff of the Board at (415) 554-6720.
