3. MATTERS OF THE BOARD

Cherny

He informed the Board that there is water damage on the murals at Coit Tower. He wasn't sure if it was appropriate that the cat door on the second floor at Coit Tower be open because murals are located in that room. The Rincon Center murals have been repaired and restored.

Street

She asked if there was any development on the Cottage Row issues. Have there been a response from the Graffiti Advisory Board regarding the letter that was sent by the Landmarks Board.

Maley

She asked if amending Article 10 only for Cottage Row historic district was possible. She asked if there was more information on 576 Shotwell Street.

Luellen

He informed Board member Street that there was a meeting held with the concerned neighbors from Cottage Row and Board Member Martinez also attended. There were no changes in the regulatory issues. The District itself is in the Redevelopment Agency area. The fence does not require a permit, or a Certificate of Appropriateness, and there is no provision within Article 10. The Planning Department recommended remedy is to amend Appendix K (of Article 10) to include the review of that type of features but the amendment would not affect this issue. In response to Board Member Martinez, this issue has been sorted out by the City Attorney office and the Planning Department. Article 10 does not apply to this particular situation. In response to President Maley, it appears that Appendix K is the only appendix that does not have that provision.

Martinez

He believes that there is significant language in Article 10 to find the fence inappropriate for a historic district. He thought the Planning Department was going to pursue the issue on Cottage Row as inappropriate.

Damkroger

If Article 10 is amended will those changes come before the Landmarks Board?

Maley

Will the amendment be just for the Cottage Row Historic District to cover that issue or for every Districts?

4. LANDMARKS WORK PROGRAM 2005-2007 UPDATE

Street

There was another site visit to the Temple Emmanuel with the student who wrote the nomination; she did a good job. Board Member Street is going to assist with the architectural description and will be contacting the next door building owner because that building is also associated with the church. She will discuss if the building should be one or two separate landmarks.

  1. HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND COMMITTEE UPDATE

The committee discussed if they were going to fund surveys, although the survey manual has not be completed. The Committee decided to fund up to $25,000 for surveys. The Sunset and Mission neighborhoods are interested in pursuing a neighborhood based survey. Discussion will continue regarding the current survey work program.

REVIEW AND COMMENT

8. (J.A. KUGLER: (415) 575-6925)

CENTRAL SUBWAY PROJECT-PHASE 2 OF THE THIRD STREET LIGHT RAIL PROJECT: Public Hearing to assist the Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board to prepare a comment letter on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report. SFMTA is proposing to provide improved transit service from South of Market to Chinatown. The Study Area includes a corridor along Third/Fourth Streets, Stockton Street and Columbus Avenue from Fourth/King (the terminus of Phase 1 of the Third Street Light Rail) to Jackson/Stockton Streets, with a construction related tunnel to Columbus Avenue/Union Street near Washington Park. The supplemental document focuses on changes to the project that have occurred since the certification of the 1998 FEIS/FEIR. Three alternatives are evaluated within the Study Area: a No-Project/Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Alternative; an Enhanced EIS/EIR Alternative with an alignment along Third, Fourth, and Harrison Streets, south of Market, a shallow subway tunnel under Market, Kearny, and Geary Streets as in the original 1998 FEIS/FEIR; and a Fourth/Stockton Street Alternative with a deep subway tunnel under Market Street with two design options. Stations would be located along the alignments to serve South of Market, the Convention Center, Market Street and Union Square and Chinatown. A Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIS/SEIR) has been prepared by the San Francisco Planning Department and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in connection with this project.

NOTE: The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was published on October 16, 2007. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to receive comments on the adequacy, accuracy, objectivity and completeness of information in the Draft EIR on November 15, 2007. This hearing is intended to assist the Landmarks Board such that the Board may prepare written comments on the Draft EIR to submit to the Planning Department. Written comments on the Draft EIR will be accepted at the Planning Department until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 10, 2007.

(Continued from 10/17/07 AND 11/7/07)

SPEAKER(S):

None

BOARD COMMENTS

A Board member asked for clarification regarding the appendices to the historic resources report and the DEIR. A Board member questioned if any studies were performed on the feasibility of locating the Chinatown station underground or within an existing building. A Board member had concerns with the proposed mitigation measures for impacts to historic resources. The Board felt that if the Stockton Street building was demolished or altered then documentation of the building should be stipulated as a mitigation measure. A Board member suggested that there should be a mitigation measure that addresses the vibration monitoring and the depth of the tunnels. Furthermore, the DEIR should evaluate what the impacts to the historic districts will be and it should provide alternatives and mitigation measures that address this issue. A Board member encourages as a mitigation measure an education/training program for workers and consultants about potential damage to historic resources as a result of construction and vibration. Further, a Board member felt that the MTA should fund and sponsor the actual designation of the potential historic districts that could be impacted by the project. A Board member requested clarification regarding the vent shafts and their potential to impact historic structures. The Board believes that it would be helpful if maps were included in the background studies and DEIR identifying the location of historic resources. The Board believes that the meaning of the loss of historic buildings needs to be assessed in terms of the economic and cultural impact to the historic districts and neighborhoods. A Board member recommended that the Programmatic Agreement included a thorough evaluation of the Preservation Alternative to demolishing the buildings on Stockton Street. A Board member recommended that the Preservation Alternatives be prepared by a Preservation Architect that meets the qualifications of the Secretary of the Interior Standards. A Board member suggested including a list of unreinforced masonry buildings in the project boundary so that there could be some evaluation for the potential for damages prior to excavation. A Board member suggested that the Preservation Architect, not the contractor, monitor the character-defining features of historic buildings on the exterior during construction. A Board member requested that any major changes to the project be brought back before the Landmarks Board for review. A Board member feels that it would be helpful to include specific dates when reviews are scheduled to take place for the stations. The Board was pleased to see the protection of the street lights and generally supports the Central Subway Station Project.

Board Comments

A Board member alerted the project sponsors to proceed with caution when removing the stucco because there may be murals underneath. A Board member feels that it would be helpful to know the condition of the stucco and how much repair it will need and the approach for repairing the stucco. A Board member requested side-by-side comparison elevations showing existing conditions and proposed alterations. A Board member would also like to be provided information regarding the entire project so as to understand the relationship of the Landmarked buildings to the proposed work at the project site. A Board member encourages the project sponsor to allow San Francisco Architectural Heritage to review and comment on the proposed plans. A Board member requested a full window survey be conducted to determine the condition of the windows in each of the Landmarked buildings. A Board member recommended that the auditorium windows (in Woods Hall) remain the same size. A Board member recommended that all consultants involved with the project be informed of and in agreement with the project in total so as to ensure that there are not conflicts in the scope of proposed changes. A Board member requested more details on the proposed openings in the site walls and how they will work. A Board member feels that the proposed openings on Laguna and Hermann Streets are too large, particularly in height. A Board member feels that the guardrail (at Wood Hall Annex) looks intrusive. A Board member also feels that it is not necessary to move the Sacred Palm Tree. A Board member requested information on the seismic and mechanical intervention, so that the Board can understand how the project meets the Secretary of Interior Standards. A Board member requested more information about the entire proposed project and requested to review the landmark designation report and/or the case report to compare with the proposed plans. A Board member would like to review the condition assessment protection plan as stated in the revised mitigation measures. A Board member would like the project sponsor to revisit the preservation alternatives put forward in the EIR. A Board member asked if there was a need to install elevators in the buildings and requested more information on the balconies and feels that a site visit may be necessary to understand the impact of the balconies.
