ADJOURNMENT
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 SFMTA.com/EngineeringResults
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
SFMTA.com/BOSAppeal.
