September 19th General Assembly Meeting Agenda Highlights
  • Program:
    • ETHICS ISSUES IN 2017- SF Ethics Commissioners and Friends of Ethics
  • Resolutions & Votes
    • Approval of the 2017-2018 CSFN Draft Budget
  • Dear Planning Commissioners:
    The Coalition for San Francisco Neighborhoods (CSFN) opposes the elimination of Tantamount to Demolition thresholds (Planning Code 317), use of Floor Area Ratio thresholds in RH zoning districts, and the to-be-defined Residential Expansion Threshold proposals. CSFN requests that no portion of Section 317 be eliminated until after the proposed amendments to the Planning Code to replace current practices are developed and there is appropriate public review of the changes. The impacts on RH-zoned buildings, on facilitating new affordable units, on neighborhood character, and on open space created by the Planning staff proposals have not been evaluated. It is premature to pursue these changes before an impact assessment on the neighborhoods is made.
