under Chapter 31 of the San Francisco Administrative Code: 
For Approval Actions, the Planning Department has issued 
a CEQA exemption determination or negative declaration, 
which may be viewed online at 
http://www.sf-planning.org/index.aspx?page=3447. Following 
approval of the item by the SFMTA City Traffic Engineer, 
the CEQA determination is subject to appeal within the time 
frame specified in S.F. Administrative Code Section 31.16, 
typically within 30 calendar days of the Approval Action. 
For information on filing a CEQA appeal, contact the Clerk 
of the Board of Supervisors at City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. 
Goodlett Place, Room 244, San Francisco, CA 94102, or call

raised at a hearing on the project or in written correspondence 
delivered to the Board of Supervisors or other City board, 
commission or department at, or prior to, such hearing, or as part 
of the appeal hearing process on the CEQA decision. 
 
Whether the City Traffic Engineer’s decision is considered a Final 
SFMTA Decision is determined by Division II, Section 203 of the 
Transportation Code.  If the City Traffic Engineer approves a parking 
or traffic modification, this decision is considered a Final SFMTA 
Decision.  If a City Traffic Engineer disapproves a parking or traffic 
modification and a member of the public requests SFMTA review of that 
decision, the additional review shall be conducted pursuant to Division II, 
Section 203 of the Transportation Code.  City Traffic Engineer decisions 
will be posted on https://www.sfmta.com/committees/engineering-public-hearings 
by 5 p.m. on the Friday following the public hearing. Final SFMTA Decisions
