here on behalf of my school it is across from the 901 tennessee construction project i realize your e-cigarette this project and looking to see if so compliant with the rules and regulations but i want to bring complexities you currently 5 projects that are about to be approved by the planning commission adjacent to that project we run a risk of 57 simultaneous construction projects the approval the planning commission and the financing and the execution of these is out of control but? a neighborhood experiencing thousands of new unit within a 7 block radius and schools with hundred and 20 preschools with
8:50 pm
young children being built the issue are construction we've met with the developers i met with them a number of times in the dog patch area i would ask you to consider those projects your approving the recommendation to the building inspection or the inspectors they take into consideration that we could end up with 5 projects simultaneously and it presents a hazard to the children and the droufts that happen with the 20 plus children and consider what impact that has as your going forward the other consideration i'm sure you're aware of the planning commissions have been more existing in the bay area we saw hundred protesters in oakland and saw a moratorium approval in the mission as well we're seeing impacts the teachers are being priced out of
8:51 pm
the city and driving an hour to get to school and compete with a lot of traffic but not a number of light zones for droufts for the parents and even the public schools are finding the private schools are being challenged for the teachers trying to educate our children i support the project thank you. >> of this i'm linda chambers the operations manager inform the international school as directly crossing we've met with the builder and architect the design is economically conscious and the building and design and
8:52 pm
generally they need to work with us mitigate any impact on the children's health and safety our concern with the next two years we'll be dealing with 5 projects can you see dust and noise and possible abatement issues and traffic and deliveries impacting 2, 3, 4 years placing across the street and parent hundred and 20 families trying drop out of their children this is currently no regulation or oversight around building around the schools but air quality and things like that but anyone morntsdz things across the street from the school the health is incredibly important
8:53 pm
families are concerned we want to be informed about particular days when they're deliveries are coming do doing abatement and parent may not wanted to bring them to school depending on the time some are starting in the fall the beginning of the school year our school goes year around there's no time better for us the open air playground is across the street and the children are there at staggered times we support the project but want to be involved as much as possible with the planning commission any way we think the facility we rent the owner is an elderly gentleman that might be getting the paperwork if i can give you
8:54 pm
my contracted information i get the flier of this meeting a i don't know it has been on the book for equivocal i'll give you any information to have a contact with the school and myself specifically thank you. >> any other public comment on this item - i saw a little bit of stretching okay that being said and opening up to commissioners commissioner moore. >> thank you for adding the context map and the activities of construction in the area this puts credibility to public comment and thank you it is a good to your case the department is using we have a large shared and wonderful things i'm enadam
8:55 pm
but i do careful explanation and not just trying to pass a monster but speaking to what inspires you you do that eloquently i'm in support of that there are positive issues about the project, however, this year's one of great certain this is a very unit driven unit driven that unfortunately asks for 50 percent of the dwelling units to be exempt from the dwelling unit exposures while in closed residential districts we have a situation all the geographies 50 percent is just too much and i will explain in a minute
8:56 pm
why this is a site a m m u for that reason it falls not acquit under the residential review by the department but really is discussed more in urban design group under the gentleman's guidance the project fails in its cross section to provide as intentional or untim it doesn't matter in the building on this courtyard side didn't need to meet the requirement a 22 foot separation is between building facade and building facade while the requirement ask a 45 degree spring point from the dprr to the top of the roof and that particular requirement
8:57 pm
which we very carefully discussions the enforcement of other buildings of similar design and this building as far i can tell will need to basically correspond to it requirement what is critical in the section you've submitted to the commissioners yesterday the gentleman was kind enough to copy it yesterday afternoon it is clear that the two building facades are too close to each other since your drawing a tree but fail to draw the garden wall your proposing in that courtyard what is left is barely 3 feet with the tree in the middle making that i am partial you have basically bedrooms 20 feet awe from the leadership and we
8:58 pm
all know the visual privacy t is between 60 and 70 percent i'd like to ask the gentleman to answer are why we didn't pursue this. >> thank you, commissioner i'll be happy to answer simply over the last year or two a number of projects that raised the same question that has had somewhat compressed courtyards the direction about their expectations for the quality of space for a dimension that provides a certain amount of privacy going so far to address
8:59 pm
window replacement and that contributes to privacy in those experimental situations but not part of the street experience in this case the project did go through that review and comments were made accordingly expressing concerns about those aspects of this project unfortunately, it simply was not communicated to the sponsor and was not reflected in the ultimate design so it is not a not always a perfect system this is one the moments and we had a clear direction based on the principally conversations and other related projects that communication came too late in the project to effect the project before you
9:00 pm
unfortunately, we have this opportunity to receive direction. >> it is very interesting since we're having a building with a double corridor in the west facing part of the project in the same corridor in the eastern part of the site it is the western side we'll ask for the racking of the building on the 45 that's the sun direction we're tdr in it will effect a couple of units will maple rest. paul the outdoor i'm not going to tell you what you do but a need to adjust the building to those requirements we're asking for the outcome as well. >> commission
