California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Appeal Rights 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 (415) 554-5184. Under CEQA, in a later 
court challenge, a litigant may be limited to raising only those 
issues previously 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 
involving certain parking or traffic modifications, whether made by 
the City Traffic Engineer or the SFMTA Board, can be reviewed by the 
Board of Supervisors pursuant to Ordinance 127-18. Information about 
the review process can be found at:
