Presentation to the SF Planning Commission July 18

At 12noon July 18, Jean and Dean were at the planning commission meeting to ask for a continuance because Juan was not able to be present.  We had to wait until case 2011.0439E was on the agenda in order to make that request.  This case was number 12a on the agenda.  Sometime after 6:30,  12a and 12b were called simultaneously.  Ten neighbors representing MUNA each took a section of the presentation:  Presentation5 and spoke for 2-3 minutes.  Following other comments, the commissioners discussed the project.  Commissioner Sugaya was very concerned because the Verdi Club has been identified as a Historical Resource and it was not addressed in the Neg Dec.  Commissioner Moore was concerned about the way the proposed building’s architecture would fit in with the Verdi Club.  When the vote was called Commissioner Sugaya said “stay” and the consideration of the 480 Potrero project is now postponed until the August 8, 2013 Commission meeting.

Pre-Application Meeting – July 12, 2012

The SF Building code required a pre-Application meeting when the use of a building is going to change.   That meeting was held July 12 at 626 Potrero.  The proposal is to open a Dialysis Clinic in the building.  This clinic will be part of the RAI Dialysis centers.  These centers are all over the US, with three already in San Francisco.  The plan updates the building interior,  adds trees on the Potrero and 18th Street sides of the building as well as in the parking lot and replaces the chain link fence with a metal fence similar to the one at SF General.     I have a paper copy of the plan and scanned in some of the drawings.   My scanner does not scan 11×17, so this is partial.
