Glen Park Community Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) Published
The Planning Department is pleased to announce the publication of the Glen Park Community Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) on April 27th, 2011. The Draft EIR is intended to inform the public and decision-makers of potential significant environment effects related to the Glen Park Community Plan. It also identifies ways to minimize significant effects and evaluates reasonable alternatives to avoid or reduce them. EIRs are an important part of getting neighborhood infrastructure improvements implemented. The document is large but contains a briefer Executive Summary that describes the EIR's conclusions regarding Land Use, Aesthetics, Cultural Resources, Transportation, Noise/Vibration, Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
Copies of the document can be found at these locations:
Readers are invited to submit written comments during the approximately 45-day public review period, ending June 13, 2011. Written comments should be submitted to:
Bill Wycko, Environmental Review Officer
The San Francisco (SF) Planning Department held a series of public workshops in 2003 to develop a community plan for the "downtown" Glen Park neighborhood. The study area included downtown Glen Park, the BART station area, city streets and public open spaces. The intensive planning process involved community members, business owners and public agencies in developing a long-term plan for the neighborhood to guide future infrastructure improvements and update zoning, design guidelines and other city policies for future development.
Circulation issues important to the community, including pedestrian safety, access to transit, traffic flow and parking are addressed in the Plan. Ways to respect the neighborhood’s character through zoning, design guidelines and other city policies are also included. The Plan explores public improvement opportunities like the use and design of buildings surrounding the BART station, the design and character of streets, and connecting public open spaces and neighborhoods.
Now that the environmental review process for the Plan is underway since Spring 2009, the Plan is moving along a path to adoption by the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is expected to take 18 months. Adoption of the Plan will follow. Once approved, the Community Plan will help guide investment in public improvements around the neighborhood and may result in changes to zoning, design guidelines, or other city policies.
The Planning Department is partnering with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) on the Plan.
