MOHCD prepares environmental review for proposed housing developments in San Francisco at their planning stage in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Part 58 of Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

An environmental review measures the impact of a proposed project on the human environment as well as the impact of the environment on future residents of the proposed project.

The environmental reviews are organized by project with the most recent listed first.

NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNFICANT IMPACT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS

This project was evaluated as an Environmental Assessment under CFR 24 Part 58.5. This determination is reflected, along with an evaluation of the project’s potential environmental impact, in the Environmental Review Record.

April 1, 2024

Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development City and County of San Francisco

1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor San Francisco, CA 94103

628-652-5965 

Madeleine.Sweet@sfgov.org

These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

On or about April 19, 2024 the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development of the City and County of San Francisco (MOHCD) will submit a request to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Planning and Development Division for the release of two million one hundred thirty-one thousand five hundred and twenty-six dollars ($2,131,526) in Community Development Block Funds (CDBG) as authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Title I, Part 24, Section 570, Public Law 93-383, 88 Stat. 633, 42 U.S.C 53015321, as amended; to undertake a project known as the 772 + 758 Pacific Avenue Affordable Housing Development.

The 772 + 758 Pacific Avenue Affordable Housing Development project seeks to develop the properties located at 758-772 Pacific Avenue as affordable senior housing for very low income persons. The project is planning a 15-story structure of 175 affordable units, including one 2-bedroom manager's unit with the rest of the units comprised of studios and 1-bedroom units. Out of total 175 units, 23% of the units or 40 units will be set aside for those having experienced homelessness funded through the Local Operating Subsidy Program (LOSP). These residents will be referred to the project via a coordinated entry system through the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (SF HSH). The project is also planning to obtain local Senior Operating Subsidies (SOS) for 40% of the units or total of 70 units, which would allow city rental subsidies to come in to allow 15% and 25% local Area Median Income units to be financially sustainable at 60% MOHCD Area Median Income (''AMI''). There will be no parking required as there is robust public transportation, including bus lines and a subway station within walking distance. On the ground floor, there will be a double-height commercial space for a Chinese Banquet Hall with a mezzanine space to re-introduce the banquet hall that the new project is replacing. Above the commercial space will be residential floors interspersed with laundry rooms, community room and property management and resident services offices to support the residents of the building. The entire project will aim to achieve affordability for extremely low-income seniors, not to exceed 30% AMI, which will require additional rental subsidies beyond the LOSP units as well as SOS units.

Estimated Total HUD Funded Amount: $2,131,526

Estimated Total Project Cost (HUD and non-HUD funds): $172,000,000.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

The Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (“NEPA”) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (“ERR”) on file at the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103 and may be examined or downloaded from the MOHCD website at https://sfmohcd.org/environmental-reviews or at the HUD website at https://cpd.hud.gov/cpd-public/environmental-reviews. If you do not have access to the internet or prefer a hard copy, a copy of the ERR can be mailed to you. Please request hard copies from Madeleine Sweet at MOHCD, One South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103 or 628-652-5965 or Madeleine.Sweet@sfgov.org.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, City and County of San Francisco, 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, attn.: Madeleine Sweet or to Madeleine.Sweet@sfgov.org All comments received by 5:00 pm April 19, 2024 will be considered by the MOHCD prior to authorizing submission of a Request for Release of Funds (“RROF”). Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing: the Notice Of Finding Of No Significant Impact or the Notice Of Intent To Request Release Of Funds. MOHCD is asking that written comments be submitted via email to Madeleine.Sweet@sfgov.org. If you are unable to access email, please send your comments to Madeleine Sweet at MOHCD, 1 South Van Ness Avenue – 5th Floor, San Francisco, California 94103.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

The City and County of San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development

certifies to HUD that Daniel Adams in his capacity as Director of the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

HUD will accept objections to the Responsible Entity's (RE) Request for Release of Funds and Environmental Certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date specified above or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development; (b) the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58 or by CEQ regulations at 40 CFR 1500-1508, as applicable; (c) the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development has omitted one or more steps in the preparation, completion or publication of the Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Study per 24 CFR Subparts E, F or G of Part 58, as applicable; (d) the grant recipient or other participant in the development process has committed funds for or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before release of funds and approval of the environmental certification; (e) another Federal, State or local agency has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be emailed to the HUD grant administration office at: RROFSFRO@hud.gov and to Alice.Walkup@hud.gov.

Revisions to the Programmatic Agreement

By and among the City and County of San Francisco, the California State Historic Preservation officer, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation regarding Historic Properties affected by use of revenue from the Department of Housing and Urban Development Part 58 Programs.

The City and County of San Francisco, acting through the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD), is negotiating revisions to the Programmatic Agreement for HUD funded programs (PA) it has with the California State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP).  This revision includes developing standard treatment measures for undertakings that could have an effect on historic properties that are archeological in nature.  The amended PA will allow for the expedited review of construction projects which have the potential to affect cultural resources and which are subject to 24 CFR Part 58 while not diminishing any protection of archeological resources. By adopting these revisions, the need to execute project specific programmatic agreements will be eliminated.  All projects affecting cultural resources are carried out under the guidance of the San Francisco Planning Department.   Projects subject to 24 CFR Part 58 include the Community Development Block Grant Program, Emergency Shelter Grants, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS, as well as other numerous HUD programs.

The amendment to the PA will not reduce the level of protection afforded by the National Historic Preservation Act to cultural resources, but will only expedite and streamline their review under the National Environmental Policy Act.  The PA is authorized by 36 CFR §800.14(b).  This revision will facilitate the implementation of HUD funded construction grants by reducing the time for project review by approximately three months and by reducing the cost of administration for the construction grants.  These time and cost savings will inure to the benefit of the ultimate recipients of Part 58 funding, low and moderate-income persons.

As an interested party you have the right and are encouraged to participate in open and good faith consultation with this office in the revision of this agreement.  The consultation process required by Federal law requires that we “…seek, discuss, and consider the views of other participants, and, where feasible, seek agreement with them regarding matters arising in the Section 106 process”.  Section 106 seeks to balance the preservation of historic resources with the mission of federal agencies and the recipients of their grants.  The mission of MOHCD is to promote economic self-sufficiency for low- and moderate-income families; to strengthen neighborhood vitality; to increase the provision of timely, relevant and effective social services; and to promote equity-based public policy strategies.

It is our hope that through your awareness and/or participation in the development of a revised programmatic agreement you will be able to assist us in achieving the beneficial purposes of the Historic Preservation Act and Part 58 programs.  The San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) will hold a hearing on the revisions to the Programmatic Agreement this Fall and will seek public comment.  Our office will advise you of the date of the hearing when it is scheduled.

Your are invited to submit any comments, questions and concerns you may have to Lorena.Guadiana@sfgov.org or at MOHCD, 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA  94103.  If you need more detailed information or have further questions please contact MOCD staff, Lorena Guadiana at 628-652-5965.  Thank you for your time and consideration of this very important matter.

Stanyan Letter to Residents.pdf

The Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development of the City and County of San Francisco (MOHCD) is in negotiations to purchase the property at 700-730 Stanyan Street (APN 1249/024).  It is MOHCD’s intention to use federal funding from the Community Development Block Grant Program to purchase the site.  In order to purchase and develop the site, MOHCD needs to engage the public in two processes mandated by federal law.

The first of these processes is the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA).  MOHCD will prepare the EA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations and United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations at 24 CFR part 58. The second of the processes is compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA). The proposed project is an Undertaking for the purposes of Section 106 of the NHPA and is subject to the Programmatic Agreement By And Among The City And County Of San Francisco, The California State Historic Preservation Officer, And The Advisory Council On Historic Preservation Regarding Historic Properties Affected By Use Of Revenue From The Department Of Housing And Urban Development Part 58 Programs (PA) (2007).

Upon acquisition of the parcel MOHCD will consider the following alternatives for development.  After completion of the Environmental Review and the Section 106 process, the director of MOHCD will make a selection of one of these alternatives based upon public input, results of the environmental studies and results of the Section 106 Review and which would best realize the underlying purpose and need of developing affordable housing.  Both alternatives will include the demolition of the existing 5,000 square foot building as well as the paved parking lot.  Consideration may be given to including ground floor commercial space, community programs space, bike storage, and an at-grade open space in either alternative. 

  1. Alternative One: Construction of a 50 foot, 5-story residential building
  2. Alternative Two:  Construction of a 65 foot, 7-story residential building
  3. Alternative Three:  No build no action alternative.

The Undertaking will involve ground disturbing activities that have the potential to affect archeological resources.  Per Stipulation XI of the PA, (Consideration And Treatment Of Archeological Resources) MOHCD requested that the Northwest Information Center of the California Historical Resources System at Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, California, (“IC”) conduct a records search for the Undertakings APE.  The IC responded on August 1, 2017.  The IC advised MOHCD that there is a moderate potential of identifying Native American archaeological resources and a moderate potential of identifying historic-period archaeological resources in the project area.  The IC recommended that a qualified archaeologist conduct further archival and field study to identify cultural resources.  On September 5, 2017, MOHCD notified the California State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) of the IC’s recommendation.

As the field studies cannot be initiated until such time as the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issues an Authority to Use Grant Funds (AUGF) and it is the considered opinion of the Director of MOHCD as Agency Official under the NHPA that a Standard Mitigation Measures Agreement is not appropriate, MOHCD desires to negotiate a site specific Programmatic Agreement with the SHPO and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation that will put into effect mitigation measures that will eliminate any adverse effects on archeological resources that might occur.

The proposed site is across the street from the Golden Gate Park, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (National Register) as a Historic District, as well as the National Register listed Stanyan Street Hotel.  The IC has recommended, prior to commencement of project activities, that if the Stanyan Street Hotel is to be affected by the proposed project activities, it be assessed by a qualified professional familiar with the architecture and history of San Francisco County. The project is subject to Section 106 of the NHPA; therefore, a qualified architectural historian will identify an area of potential effects (APE) and evaluate any historic-age buildings in the APE for NRHP-eligibility. This will allow any potential adverse effects to be identified and, if necessary, mitigated in the EA.

Environmental Justice

MOHCD  is negotiating a Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA) with McDonald’s Corporation for the sale of 700-730 Stanyan Street to the City and County of San Francisco. The completion of the sale is subject to contingencies, one of which is a successful completion of a federal environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  As part of the environmental review process, MOHCD is conducting an Environmental Justice (EJ) analysis to determine if the proposed project will disproportionately affect either low income or minority populations, often referred to environmental justice communities.  The EJ analysis includes consultation with representatives of the EJ communities and other interested persons and parties regarding potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures.  MOHCD has identified the impacts that need to be mitigated as well as the measures necessary to mitigate these impacts and is seeking your comments on them and whether you believe there are alternatives to the identified mitigation measures.  Follow the link below to read the EJ Notice.

EIS Reevaluation TB Block 7.pdf

The Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) of the City and County of San Francisco has assumed responsibility for environmental review, decision-making, and action that would otherwise apply to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and other provisions of the law that further the purposes of NEPA, as specified in 24 CFR Part 58.  MOHCD is adopting those portions of the March 2004 Transbay Terminal/Caltrain Downtown Extension/Redevelopment Project (Transbay Program) Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (2004 EIS) that covers redevelopment at Transbay Block 7 (referred to as Block #3728 within the 2004 EIS, p. S-11). The 2004 EIS was prepared by U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Transit Administration, the City and County of San Francisco, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, and the former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency.

MOHCD is issuing this notice to advise the public and interested agencies that MOHCD, as Responsible Entity for HUD, has decided to adopt portions of the 2004 EIS issued by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in 2004 in order to satisfy HUD’s National Environmental Policy Act obligations related to issuing project based housing vouchers for 24 affordable housing units at Transbay Block 7. Additionally, MOHCD has made available an Environmental Reevaluation of the EIS, updating certain relevant sections of the environmental analysis and incorporating environmental standards articulated in 24 CFR Part 58, Environmental Review Procedures For Entities Assuming HUD Environmental Responsibilities.

Under applicable Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations, MOHCD, as Responsible Entity for HUD, may adopt and recirculate the FTA’s Final EIS since MOHCD’s proposed action is substantially the same as the action covered by the FTA’s EIS, and MOHCD has determined that the FTA EIS meets the standard for an adequate statement under the CEQ Regulations. In addition, under HUD’s environmental procedures, MOHCD is required to issue a reevaluation of the adequacy, accuracy and validity of a final EIS in certain circumstances, which MOHCD has also done for this project.

 The complete ERR is also available for viewing at the Transbay Joint Powers Authority website at http://transbaycenter.org/documents/final-eiseir and the Federal Railroad Administration website at https://www.fra.dot.gov/Page/P0454.  Copies of the 2004 EIR can also be obtained at the San Francisco Public Library at 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA and the Transbay Joint Powers Authority offices at 201 Mission St # 2100, San Francisco, CA 94105.

Mission Bay Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing at 1150 Third Street

Revised NOIRROF.pdf

Final PA Mission Bay VASH.pdf

Third Street 1150 EA Signed.pdf

Notice of Preparation of an Environmental Assessment and Section 106 Review

Chinatown Community Development Center (“CCDC”) and Swords to Plowshares (“STP”) are co-developing 1150 3rd Street (the "Project"), a 119-unit affordable housing development financed in part by the San Francisco Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure ("OCII"), the Successor Agency to the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency. The Project is new construction providing homes for formerly homeless veterans and low-income families in SF's Mission Bay neighborhood. The development program for the project includes a unit mix of 12 Studios and 50 one-bedroom units serving formerly homeless veterans; 5 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedroom units, 21 three-bedroom units all serving low-income families; and one two-bedroom manager’s unit.  The Project is comprised of a 5-story, U-shaped building fronting 3rd Street that surrounds a two-story central open space.  The U-shaped design consists of three wings: the 3rd Street wing is the development’s civic face as 3rd Street is exposed to arterial car traffic and public transit lines, while the Mission Rock and Lot A (a private street) wings are along secondary streets with limited traffic and feature a more pedestrian scale.  The Project includes a large central community room and kitchen located along the 3rd  Street wing, an adjacent computer lab, teen gathering space, a multipurpose room, a young kids’ play room, resident services and property management offices,  restrooms, mailboxes, bike parking room, and two laundry rooms.  The Project also provides 25 off-street parking spaces in an enclosed garage.  At the center of the three building wings is a large, two-level open space with areas for gathering and children’s play, and separate areas for respite and relaxation.  All of the units will be restricted to families earning no more than 60% of SF's unadjusted Area Median Income (“AMI”) but half of the units are set aside for formerly homeless veteran households with rents not to exceed 30% AMI.  Furthermore, the homeless units must include administrative and supportive services which will be coordinated with the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (“DHSH”).  The proposed financing structure includes 4% low-income housing tax credits and tax-exempt bonds, a permanent loan from OCII, Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention Program (“VHHP”) funds administered by the State of California’s Housing and Community Development (“HCD”) office, and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (“VASH”) project-based vouchers.

As stated above, the building design evidences a U-shaped structure with three distinct wings surrounding a central courtyard.  Each wing fronts a street: the Lot A wing faces north, the 3rd Street wing faces east, and the Mission Rock Street faces south.  The ground floor contains a handful of residential units (3 family units in the Lot A wing and 2 veterans units in the Mission Rock wing).  However, most of the development’s communal functions described above are located here.  Those communal spaces that primarily serve the veterans units are located in the veterans (Mission Rock) building wing, whereas the spaces that serve the family units are located in the family (3rd Street and Lot A) wings.

The two-story central courtyard is a unique project element.  The lower and upper courtyards are connected by a staircase, accompanying ramp, and a landscaped berm.  The ramp achieves the grade change by zig-zagging up the elevation.  The lower courtyard, which is adjacent to the common areas and program spaces, is geared towards large community activities and provides play space for children.  The lower courtyard also includes a communal table and outdoor cooking area to promote large group gatherings.  The upper courtyard is smaller than the lower courtyard; subsequently it focuses on smaller group activities.  It is directly accessible from the second floor of the building and will feature a community garden and seating.

The building is designed to facilitate a connection to community that many homeless veterans are lacking.  Through clustering the veterans and family units in separate wings of the building that wrap around joint community spaces and a large central courtyard, there are numerous opportunities for interactions and friendships amongst veterans and families.  At the same time, there are also opportunities for privacy, even within the communal spaces.  Clustering the 62 veterans units in the Mission Rock and 3rd Street wings enables the design team to incorporate universal design principles in these sections of the building.  The Sponsors have learned through their experience working with San Francisco’s chronically homeless veterans that this population can be of poor health or disabled.  Therefore, they’ve incorporated the universal design principles in the veterans wing so that residents there can age in place.

The Project includes a parking lot with controlled access parking for 25 vehicles including 1 ADA accessible space.  Cars will enter and exit the garage from Mission Rock Street. Based on other affordable housing for formerly homeless individuals, parking demand from the 62 formerly homeless veterans units is expected to be minimal. Combined with the Project’s transit-rich location, proposed car sharing in the Project, and existing car sharing in the neighborhood, the 25 parking spaces provide an additional transportation option for the remaining 56 households. The limited parking is in line with San Francisco’s transit first policy which encourages residents to utilize public transit, car sharing, and bicycling, as well as recognizes the transit rich location of the site.  A Muni stop is located directly in front of the site on 3rd Street and the future central subway line will connect to the existing 3rd Street lines. 

The building is Type V over Type I construction to minimize cost and the building’s façade materials will be harmonious to the surrounding buildings.  Green elements include optimal stormwater management, durable materials, and solar photovoltaic and thermal panels will provide clean electricity to the Project.   The building will achieve a Green Point Rated standard of 125 points or better.

Casa-de-la-Mision

The proposed project, Casa de la Misión, is the mixed-use development of 50 units of low-income housing for seniors and 1,900-2,500 square feet of commercial space.  Development of the housing will include site acquisition, demolition of two existing structures and the construction of a six story structure.  The 6,000 square foot ground floor will include a lobby, housing management office and nonprofit or retail space. The second through sixth floors will house 50 studio apartments including a staff unit. The site is located at 3001-3013 24th Street in San Francisco's Mission District.  The total cost of the project is estimated to be $50,000,000.

A Response to Comments to the draft joint Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared by the City and County of San Francisco Planning Department and the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD). The Response to Comments and the Draft EIR/EIS along with the cover sheet comprise the Final EIR/EIS.  It is available by clicking the links immediately below this paragraph and is also available for viewing at MOHCD at 1 South Van Ness Avenue 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103 or at the San Francisco Planning Department, Planning Information Center (PIC) counter on the first floor at 1660 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement

A draft joint Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared by the City and County of San Francisco Planning Department and the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD).

For purposes of the National Environmental Policy Act, MOHCD is the Federal Responsible Entity acting under authority of Section 104(g) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5304(g)), Section 288 of the HOME Investment Partnerships Act (42 U.S.C. 12838), Section 26 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437x) and HUD's regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 for redevelopment of the Potrero Terrace and Potrero Annex Public Housing sites as part of the HOPE SF development program. The Proposed Action is the approval by HUD of funding and development agreements associated with redevelopment of the Project site with affordable housing. This notice is in accordance with regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) at 40 CFR Parts 1500 – 1508. All interested parties including Federal, State, tribal and local agencies, in addition to the public are invited to comment on the Draft EIR/EIS. Agencies having jurisdiction by law, special expertise, or other special interest should inform MOHCD of environmental information germane to their responsibilities.

Project Description: The Proposed Project would demolish 620 public housing units and develop housing for a range of income levels for a total up to 1,700 new units on the Project site, which is located in Potrero Hill and comprised of the existing Potrero Terrace, and Potrero Annex housing developments, and Block X. The purpose of the Proposed Project is to revitalize the distressed Potrero Housing Development as part of the HOPE SF program and add additional affordable housing options in the City of San Francisco. The Proposed Project would include, but not be limited to, new vehicle connections, new pedestrian connections, a new street and block layout, new transit stops, and new water, wastewater, and storm water infrastructure. In addition, the Proposed Project would incorporate green construction and sustainable principles, retail, community facilities, and open space. The Proposed Project would be built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) standards. The Proposed Project would be developed in three non-overlapping phases over at least a 10-year period.

A portion of the Project site, Block X, would need a zoning amendment from P to RM-2 to be consistent with the Potrero Annex and Potrero Terrace areas of the Project site. The existing height and bulk designation of the Project site would need to be amended through a Height and Map Amendment to allow buildings above 40 feet.
The Draft EIR/EIS discusses the purposes and need for the Proposed Project and identifies and evaluates three alternatives: Alternative 1 – Reduced Development Alternative; Alternative 2 – Housing Replacement Alternative; and Alternative 3 – No Project Alternative.

DRAFT EIR/EIS: The Draft EIR/EIS finds that implementation of the proposed project would lead to significant unavoidable project-level and cumulative impacts related to air quality, noise, and transportation and circulation. The buildings used for the public hearings are accessible to person with disabilities. Any individual who requires special accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter, accessible seating, documentation in alternative formats, are requested to contact Eugene Flannery at Eugene.Flannery@sfgov.org or at Call: (415) 701-5598. The Draft EIR/EIS is also available for viewing at MOHCD at 1 South Van Ness Avenue 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103 or at the San Francisco Planning Department, Planning Information Center (PIC) counter on the first floor at 1660 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103.

Public comments on the Draft EIR/EIS will be accepted from November 7, 2014 to 5:00 p.m. through January 7, 2015. Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the Draft EIR/EIS to: Sarah Jones, Environmental Review Officer, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, California 94103. All comments received by 5:00 P.M. P.S.T January 7, 2015 will be considered.

Mixed Use Development 55 Laguna Street Project

The Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development of the City and County of San Francisco (MOHCD) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) which describes the potential environmental effects of the proposed development of housing, retail and community uses at the San Francisco State Teachers College. The EA was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347), as amended, Title 24 Part 58 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and Council on Environmental Quality Regulations. (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508).

Based upon the EA, MOHCD has determined that the project is not an action that will result in a significant impact on the quality of the human environment and has published a Combined Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact and Notice of Intent to Request Release of Funds (FONSI/NOIRROF) in accordance with 24 CFR §58.43.  The Finding of No Significant Impact is based upon compliance with mitigation measures which have been identified as necessary to reduce the environmental impacts of the proposed action to a point or level where they are determined to be no longer significant.

The FONSI/NOIRROF was published in the San Francisco Examiner on September 21, 2012 and is also posted on this website.  It can be accessed by clicking the link below, “FONSI/NOIRROF”. The FONSI/NOIRROF was also mailed to individuals and groups known to be interested in the proposed action, to the local news media, to the appropriate tribal, local, State and Federal agencies; to the Regional Offices of the Environmental Protection Agency having jurisdiction and to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Field Office in San Francisco.

During the 30 day comment period, the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development received timely comments from the Law Offices of Mary Miles on behalf of the Coalition for Adequate Review (CAR) on October 3 and on October 21, 2012. MOHCD received a comment from Helene Whitson of Save the Laguna Street Campus on October 21, 2012. No other comments were timely submitted. Comments and Responses to the Comments can be accessed by clicking on the "Response to Comments" and "Appendices to Response to Comments" links below.

The Environmental Assessment has been modified as a result of the consideration of the comment received for the FONSI/NOIRROF. However, the original findings are still valid. The Final EA can be accessed by clicking on the "Final EA" link below.

The Environmental Review Record (ERR), including the Environmental Assessment and supporting documentation is on file at the MOH, 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103. It is available for review and may be examined or copied weekdays 9:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M. The Environmental Review Record is also available for review and downloading by clicking on the links below.

MOHCD submitted a Request for Release of Funds and Certification (RROF - form HUD-7015.15) to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Community Planning and Development on November 6, 2012. The RROF serves as a certification of the MOHCD’s compliance with environmental laws and regulations in the exercise of its duties as a responsible entity for environmental review, decision-making, and action that would otherwise apply to HUD under NEPA. The form also serves as a request for the release of funding. MOHCD has requested the release of an estimated $1,400,000 in HOPWA funding $10,000,000 in Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) grants under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, as amended; and $400,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended; to undertake the proposed project.

HUD will accept objections to the Release of Funds and Environmental Certification for a period of fifteen days following the submission of the Request for Release of Funds. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Office of Community Planning and Development, United States Department of Housing and Urban Development at 600 Harrison Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
