[From the Tuesday, May 27, 2015 DZLU Meeting]
The Design, Zoning and Land Use Committee of Russian Hill Neighbors meets monthly to review notices of new construction and remodeling projects and to follow up on continuing projects. We monitor such things as the neighborhood impacts of traffic on Lombard Street’s “crooked” block, installation of AT&T U-Verse boxes, etc.
This month’s items of interest to the Community are…
California Assembly Bill 57, which has been recently voted and approved by the State Assembly, would authorize wireless companies to place facilities on any wooden utility pole without notification or review. RHN is sending letters to Senator Leno, urging a no vote, and Governor Brown, urging a veto.
RHN continues close involvement with the Francisco Park Conservancy – an organization spear-heading the creation of the 4 acre Francisco Reservoir site into a park. The Francisco Park Conservancy is in active communication with Rec & Park Department, Planning Department, and Supervisor’s office to determine the design and the ongoing maintenance arrangement of the Park.
RHN is disappointed to report the relocation of Star Glass on Pacific Street, after decades of service to the community. We’ve been told Star Glass plans to move the main facility to South San Francisco. They do plan to retain a small retail presence in the neighborhood.
