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:
