At an SFBOS hearing, a public commenter just said that the University of California is trying to push through its environmental impact report for UCSF before anyone could read its 5,000 pages.

Gotta love CEQA?
George Wooding (West of Twin Peaks Central Council) said that the 1987 MOU for UCSF was great because it forced UCSF to develop land in Mission Bay and Dogpatch for greater hospital capacity.

Hmm, this tune sounds awfully familiar.
The 70s are back, baybee
I just heard a commenter say that the City deserves "payback" for allowing a hospital to be build, and that the City ask for a UCSF plan which will "not cause so much harm to us."

This is a meeting about a hospital.

Hello San Francisco. I'm attending a meeting of the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council. David Woo is MCing. Christin Evans will present on the Haight Street Neighborhood Commercial District, and Calvin Welch will present how the Haight voted.…
Christin is now presenting.

Christin: I had an idea for this recovery plan. I'm also going to highlights from the shopping survey and start a dialogue about it.
Evans: I started worrying about Haight St vacancies in. 2016. A number of storefronts weren't being marketed, left vacant for long periods of time, so I started counting vacancies between Stanyan and Central.

2016: 9 vacancies, 6%
2020 (Feb): 21 vac/14%
2020 (Dec): 31 vac/21%

I've received a community meeting notice about a T-Mobile cell antenna project in my neighborhood. I love democracy. Image
The address corresponds to a building containing apartments over a CVS. Image
Installing or modifying a wireless antenna requires conditional use authorization in most of the City—including this parcel—which means that a hearing before the Planning Commission will be required. Image

Hello San Francisco. I'm attending a Planning Commission meeting to watch a presentation by Planning Department about Prop H, which voters approved on November 3.… Image
We're on a preceding item, which is a review of land use events at the Board of Supervisors and other boards/commissions. Planning Dept representative Aaron Starr notes that the Whole Foods approved by the Planning Commission in June was subject to a CEQA appeal on Tuesday.
Starr reports that the CEQA appeal was approved because the loading traffic for the Whole Foods was underestimated, since the Planning Commission found that the air quality impacts from loading would fall within acceptable levels.

Hello, San Francisco. I'm attending a meeting of the Coalition for a Complete Community. Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council Board Member David Woo is introducing the meeting. There will be a representative from the Mayor's Office later.… Image
Calvin Welch, HANC land use chair, is presenting some background on the project. There have been three affordable housing projects in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood since the 80s. He makes note of Mercy Family Plaza Apartments, the old Polytechnic High School, + 1 other.
CCC put together a plan with four ideas in mind:

• It should be transit-oriented, with no parking
• It should have mixed-use residential and ground floor commercial
• It should serve seniors, transitional aged youth, and families with children
• There would be an interim use

The SF Bay Area's housing goals for 2022–2030 are based on population projections by the CA Department of Finance. ABAG/MTC also modeled how changes in housing prices would impact population. It's all in one chart. Image
Lets' talk DOF county-level projections. Folks, they are Wild™.

Alameda and Contra Costa Counties are expected to grow by >350K and >500K apiece. Meanwhile, San Francisco is projected to gain less than 100K people. Marin: only 20 thousand people.
In the last 50 years, SF has added over 370 thousand jobs but only 60 thousand homes. If we change nothing, the state does not expect our housing deficit to change.

That means more supercommuters from our far-flung counties, instead of Marin close by.
