The Project Sponsor shall apply for the appropriate sign permits, and shall follow the requirements of Article 6 of the San Francisco Planning Code. 7.

Planning Code Section 303 establishes criteria for the Planning Commission to consider when reviewing applications for Conditional Use approval. On balance, the project does comply with said criteria in that: A. The proposed new uses and building, at the size and intensity contemplated and at the proposed location, will provide a development that is necessary or desirable, and compatible with, the neighborhood or the community. The size of the bar is in keeping with other storefronts on the block face. The bar will not impact traffic or parking in the District because it is not a destination bar and is meant to serve the immediate neighborhood. This will complement the mix of goods and services currently available in the district and contribute to the economic vitality of the neighborhood by removing a vacant storefront. B. The proposed project will not be detrimental to the health, safety, convenience or general welfare of persons residing or working in the vicinity. There are no features of the project that could be detrimental to the health, safety or convenience of those residing or working the area, in that: i.

The proposed work will not affect the building envelope.

ii.

The accessibility and traffic patterns for persons and vehicles, the type and volume of such traffic, and the adequacy of proposed off-street parking and loading; The Planning Code does not require parking or loading for an 865 square-foot bar. The bar is designed to meet the needs of the immediate neighborhood and should not generate significant amounts of vehicular trips from the immediate neighborhood or citywide. The bar relies on foot traffic or transit and does not require off street and loading.

iii.

The safeguards afforded to prevent noxious or offensive emissions such as noise, glare, dust and odor;

5

Draft Motion February 9, 2017

CASE NO. 2016-013271CUA 3608 Taraval Street

C. That the use as proposed will comply with the applicable provisions of the Planning Code and will not adversely affect the General Plan. The proposed project complies with all relevant requirements and standards of the Planning Code and is consistent with objectives and policies of the General Plan as detailed below. The bar recently went through a change-of-use permit and is currently compliant with the Building Code and Planning Code. D. That the use as proposed would provide development that is in conformity with the purpose of the applicable Neighborhood Commercial District. The proposed project is consistent with the stated purposed of NC-1 Districts in that the intended use is located at the ground floor, will provide a compatible convenience service for the immediately surrounding neighborhoods. E. With respect to a Eating and Drinking Use, the Commission shall make the following findings: i. The concentration of such establishments should not exceed 25 percent of the total commercial frontage as measured in linear feet within the immediate area of the subject site. For the purposes of this Section of the Code, the immediate area shall be defined as all properties located within 300' of the subject property and also located within the same zoning district. The proposal is to change the hours of operation for a previously approved bar. There is no increase in the concentration of eating and drinking establishments in the area. 8.

General Plan Compliance. The Project is, on balance, consistent with the following Objectives and Policies of the General Plan:

NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCE Objectives and Policies 6

Draft Motion February 9, 2017

CASE NO. 2016-013271CUA 3608 Taraval Street

OBJECTIVE 1: MANAGE ECONOMIC GROWTH AND CHANGE TO ENSURE ENHANCEMENT OF THE TOTAL CITY LIVING AND WORKINIG ENVIRONMENT. Policy 1.1: Encourage development which provides substantial net benefits and minimizes undesirable consequences. Discourage development that has substantial undesirable consequences that cannot be mitigated. Policy 1.2: Assure that all commercial and industrial uses meet minimum, reasonable performance standards. Policy 1.3: Locate commercial and industrial activities according to a generalized commercial and industrial land use plan. The proposed development will provide desirable goods and services to the neighborhood and will provide resident employment opportunities to those in the community. The expanded scope of the existing business to include extended hours of operation will not result in undesirable consequences. Further, the Project Site is located within a Neighborhood Commercial District and is thus consistent with activities in the commercial land use plan. OBJECTIVE 2: MAINTAIN AND ENHANCE A SOUND AND DIVERSE ECONOMIC BASE AND FISCAL STRUCTURE FOR THE CITY. Policy 2.1: Seek to retain existing commercial and industrial activity and to attract new such activity to the City. The Project will retain an existing commercial activity and will enhance the diverse economic base of the City. OBJECTIVE 6: MAINTAIN AND STRENGTHEN VIABLE NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL AREAS EASILY ACCESSIBLE TO CITY RESIDENTS. Policy 6.1: Ensure and encourage the retention and provision of neighborhood-serving goods and services in the city’s neighborhood commercial districts, while recognizing and encouraging diversity among the districts. No commercial tenant would be displaced and the project would not prevent the district from achieving optimal diversity in the types of goods and services available in the neighborhood.

7

Draft Motion February 9, 2017

CASE NO. 2016-013271CUA 3608 Taraval Street

The following guidelines, in addition to others in this objective for neighborhood commercial districts, should be employed in the development of overall district zoning controls as well as in the review of individual permit applications, which require case-by-case review and City Planning Commission approval. Pertinent guidelines may be applied as conditions of approval of individual permit applications. In general, uses should be encouraged which meet the guidelines; conversely, uses should be discouraged which do not. Eating and Drinking Establishments Eating and drinking establishments include bars, sit-down restaurants, fast food restaurants, selfservice restaurants, and take-out food. Associated uses, which can serve similar functions and create similar land use impacts, include ice cream stores, bakeries and cookie stores. Guidelines for eating and drinking establishments are needed to achieve the following purposes:  Regulate the distribution and proliferation of eating and drinking establishments, especially in districts experiencing increased commercial activity;  Control nuisances associated with their proliferation;  Preserve storefronts for other types of local-serving businesses; and  Maintain a balanced mix of commercial goods and services.  The regulation of eating and drinking establishments should consider the following:  Balance of retail sales and services;  Current inventory and composition of eating and drinking establishments;  Total occupied commercial linear frontage, relative to the total district frontage;  Uses on surrounding properties;  Available parking facilities, both existing and proposed;  Existing traffic and parking congestion; and  Potential impacts on the surrounding community. The proposal is to change the hours of operation for a previously approved bar. There is no increase in the concentration of eating and drinking establishments in the area. Policy 6.2: Promote economically vital neighborhood commercial districts which foster small business enterprises and entrepreneurship and which are responsive to the economic and technological innovation in the marketplace and society. An independent entrepreneur is sponsoring the proposal. The proposed use is a neighborhood serving use. This is not a Formula Retail use. 9.

Planning Code Section 101.1(b) establishes eight priority-planning policies and requires review of permits for consistency with said policies. On balance, the project does comply with said policies in that: A. That existing neighborhood-serving retail uses be preserved and enhanced and future opportunities for resident employment in and ownership of such businesses be enhanced. The proposal would enhance the district by allowing extended hours of operation for an approved bar. The business is locally owned and has created nine employment opportunities for the community. 8

Draft Motion February 9, 2017

CASE NO. 2016-013271CUA 3608 Taraval Street

B. That existing housing and neighborhood character be conserved and protected in order to preserve the cultural and economic diversity of our neighborhoods. The existing units in the surrounding neighborhood, including those located within the subject property, would not be adversely affected. C. That the City's supply of affordable housing be preserved and enhanced, No housing is removed for this Project. D. That commuter traffic not impede MUNI transit service or overburden our streets or neighborhood parking. The area is well-served by the bus stations at Taraval and 46th Avenue, which has the L-Taraval light rail line and also accessible by the 18-bus line. It is presumable that the employees would commute by transit thereby mitigating possible effects on street parking. E. That a diverse economic base be maintained by protecting our industrial and service sectors from displacement due to commercial office development, and that future opportunities for resident employment and ownership in these sectors be enhanced. The Project will not displace any service or industry establishment. The project will not affect industrial or service sector uses or related employment opportunities. Ownership of industrial or service sector businesses will not be affected by this project. F.

That the City achieve the greatest possible preparedness to protect against injury and loss of life in an earthquake. This proposal will not impact the property’s ability to withstand an earthquake.

G. That landmarks and historic buildings be preserved. A landmark or historic building does not occupy the Project site. H. That our parks and open space and their access to sunlight and vistas be protected from development. The project will have no negative impact on existing parks and open spaces. The Project does not have an impact on open spaces. 10. The Project is consistent with and would promote the general and specific purposes of the Code provided under Section 101.1(b) in that, as designed, the Project would contribute to the character and stability of the neighborhood and would constitute a beneficial development.

1. The project sponsor performed extensive community outreach associated with the recent Change of Use, and identified that the vast majority of neighbors are very much in favor of more eating and drinking establishments. Neighbors noted that there are currently no desirable, upscale bars in the neighborhood open past 11pm. This Conditional Use to extend hours would create a desirable neighborhood destination that would relieve residents from a long trip downtown just to visit a bar with friends. 2. (a) The project sponsor has worked with community leaders and immediate neighbors to create a plan for the Bar ownership to boost the cleanliness of the block, and to insure (to the extend possible) the relative peace and quiet that the neighbors enjoy. (b) The project is directly accessible north-south by bus (18 line) and east-west by light rail (L-Taraval). (c) The project sponsor, a neighborhood resident, will be present during business hours personally ensure noise levels outside the bar to not effect the peace and quiet of the immediate neighborhood. (d) The project sponsor will personally ensure that bar patrons to not loiter, smoke, etc. in the adjacent landscaped seating areas along the sidewalk. 3 The extended bar hours will encourage residents to enjoy themselves in the neighborhood, rather than driving.

Referring the project by Matt Lopez at 3608 Taraval St.

My name is Lauren Crabbe and I have lived in the Sunset District of San Francisco for 9 years. My husband and I own Andytown Coffee Roasters and we are opening our second café location right across the street from Matt’s proposed bar. I first met Matt Lopez when he was a customer at our café. He is a warm-hearted individual who truly cares about the neighborhood he calls home. Matt has joined us in our efforts to revitalize the Outer Taraval corridor. Like us, Matt sees potential in the abandoned storefronts of Outer Taraval. The Outer Sunset is full of residents who love living close to the mighty Pacific Ocean, but when we want to partake in San Francisco’s thriving food or nightlife scene, we are forced to commute across town. The residents of the Outer Sunset—myself included—are craving more food and beverage options in our neighborhood. Everything that Matt has told be about his bar has me excited for it, but I’m not naïve to the concerns that many folks will have about another bar opening on Taraval. (I mean, as a café, we are going to be the people cleaning up the sidewalk at 5:00AM when we start our day.) I know that as a neighbor, Matt will make sure that his patrons will respect the surrounding businesses and homes. I believe that a business can foster a culture of respect, and that attitude will attract like-minded individuals to patronize the business. So far, Matt has gone above and beyond to inform his neighbors of his plans and to listen to their suggestions and concerns. I am confident that Matt will continue to make sure his business has a positive impact on the block. I support Matt Lopez’s bar opening at 3608 Taraval and the proposed hours extension to 2AM. Matt’s bar will benefit the Outer Taraval neighborhood by bringing additional foot traffic to the area and by providing a welcoming environment for neighbors to socialize.

Sincerely, Lauren Crabbe Owner, Andytown Coffee Roasters

The 1

business will not be able to succeed if we are not allowed these hours and we also hope to help with some of the issues that occur late at night in this area. I was hoping you would be able to write a letter of support for the bar and the extended hours. All that is needed is a brief description of your association to the area and that you support the project and the hours. If you could address the letter to the planning commission but send it back to me at this email address that would be great. I am also filling out the rental agreement, so I can host a meeting at the congregation to update the residents on the project. I will drop the agreement off ASAP. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Cheers Matt

Begin forwarded message: From: Todd Wiley Subject: SF Planning Commission Date: January 17, 2017 at 11:19:19 AM PST To: Matt Lopez To Whom this may concern at the SF Planning Commission, I am a resident of the Outer Parkside and a home owner at 2563 43rd Avenue. My wife and I have called San Francisco our home since 1989 and we've owned our home since 1999 where we are raising two children who attend local schools are Lincoln High School and St. Gabriels k-8. That said, I support Matt Lopez’s bar project at 3608 Taraval St and his request for extended hours until 2am.

I have been selling real estate in San Francisco since 2003 and have seen great improvement to our neighborhood over the 20 years. Much of what continues to improve the Outer Avenues is the entry of new and exciting commercial establishments. A nice cocktail lounge is definitely something that would further bolster the momentum we're seeing to improve the options for local dining and after hours places to enjoy with friends. We live in a great city and much of what makes this town what it is are locally owned businesses represented by people who know and love the area in which they live. Matt Lopez is a native San Franciscan raised in the Sunset District. He has a successful track record starting and managing small business in the area. Matt's vision for this location is a good one and I feel strongly about exciting new options that will continue to raise the bar for our neighborhood by the beach!

Feel free to call me with any questions. Best regards,

Todd Wiley Resident of the Outer Parkside 2563 43rd Ave 415-317-5888

Begin forwarded message: From: Jonathan Maguire Subject: Letter of support for 3608 Taraval Date: January 17, 2017 at 11:12:52 AM PST To: Matthew Lopez Dear Planning Commission, I am writing in support of the proposed new bar at 3608 Taraval St. along with extending its operating hours to 2am. My family has lived in the neighborhood for over 10 years. Our home is three blocks away from the location and I can attest that our neighborhood is in much need of and would benefit greatly from this new establishment. It would be wonderful to have a local place to walk with my wife to enjoy a nice cocktail. Currently, we have to travel across town to do so. The location is conveniently served by both the L-Taraval and 18 Muni transit lines which will help to mitigate any impact on the area in terms of parking. This crucial commercial corridor is in desperate need of dynamic and locally owned businesses such as this one to help revitalize our neighborhood. I attended a community meeting about this project and was very impressed by the proprietor, Matt Lopez, who responded sincerely to all potential concerns from the attendees. I came away confident that this business will be a true asset for our neighborhood and urge the Planning Commission to support this venture to the fullest extent.

Dear Planning Commission,

As residents and local business owners of the Outer Sunset, my husband Dave and I are pleased to hear that another business will open up in our neighborhood. We have very few bar and nightlife establishments in this area of the city, we look forward to having a local bar that we know we will feel comfortable going to, with an owner we support. With a lack of establishments open after 10 or 11pm, we fully support Matt Lopez’s bar project at 3608 Taraval Street and his request for extended hours until 2am. Matt and his family are well-loved in this community, known by many over a span of a few generations. The friends and people who want to support Matt opening his bar are the kind of people who will help another local business succeed. The Outer Sunset is going through a positive growth, and adding a business that will bring community together is just what this neighborhood needs.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Christina and Dave Beer Owner at Ocean Beach Yoga SF, LLC

To whom it may concern; My name is Matt Ciganek and I’m a homeowner a few blocks from the location at 3608 Taraval Street where Matt Lopez is seeking to establish his new business. I am also a Realtor who specializes in the Outer Sunset and Parkside districts. New and vibrant businesses that will enhance the appeal and enjoyment of the neighborhood for local residents are important to the further development of the community. The neighborhood has been on an upswing for several years and this is largely a result of an increase in exciting commercial establishments that would, in years past, only exist in other parts of the city. We are very excited to have a bar like Matt is planning on running in our neighborhood. There are only a few out here and they’ve served the same clientele, by and large, for decades. They’re open until 2 am and I see no reason why Matt’s establishment wouldn’t be able to operate safely in the same manner. Matt’s business would bring a new and fresh approach to neighborhood gathering. I’ve known Matt Lopez personally for many years and his drive and personality are perfect to make this a reality and a wonderful new spot for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you, Matt Ciganek 2064 Great Highway San Francisco CA 94116

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Al Fenton and I am a fifth generation native San Franciscan. I am writing to you because I fully support Matt Lopez’s Bar Project at 3608 Taraval Street and his request for extended hours.I have owned a house in the Sunset District on 48th Avenue for the last twenty years. My children were born and raised in the Sunset District and have been a big part of the growing community. My children have attended St.Gabriel’s, A.P. Giannini and St.Ignatius College Preparatory and Lincoln High School. My family and I are also members of the St.Gabriel Parish. I have watched the growth and development of the Sunset District and I believe that Matt Lopez’s Bar Project at 3608 Taraval Street would be a positive influence and addition to the Sunset District community. I also support his request for extended hours until 2am. Our community needs an owner and business like Matt Lopez and his bar project.The Sunset District needs someone who is a San Francisco Native, embraces what the Sunset District community represents and appreciates and respects the community. I’ve personally known Matt Lopez for over twenty years now and he’s a big part of the Sunset District community from Noriega Street Fair to Ocean Beach clean ups. He is a well rounded, educated young adult who shows dedication and enthusiasm. I would greatly appreciate a San Francisco Native owner in the Sunset District because us natives are a rare breed nowadays. I believe that in order for the Sunset District to grow and to hold onto our San Francisco native roots, we need the bar project that Matt Lopez is requesting. It would only make our district thrive and blossom. Sincerely, Al Fenton

As a resident of the Outer Sunset for more than 10 years, I have seen many commercial improvements to certain corridors of our neighborhood including Outer Judah and Noriega. These improvements not only align with our diverse and evolving community, but they have actually transformed parts of the Outer Sunset into notable destinations for shopping, dining, and socializing. These pockets provide a community gathering area for neighborhood residents. Yet despite civic efforts to renovate the Outer Taraval corridor with striking plantings, a welldesigned parklet, and sculpture reflective of the neighborhood's personality, the commercial aspect leaves much to be desired and the strip remains desolate. The addition of a new cocktail bar would be beneficial in helping spark a renaissance for this area that has so much potential. Please support this proposed asset to the community so residents like myself could have a nice place to socialize with friends within a walkable distance from home.

1-17-2017 To: San Francisco Planning Commission, 1650 Mission St #400, San Francisco, CA 94103 RE: Letter in Support of Bar at 3608 Taraval Street Dear members of the Planning Commission, As a former county planning commissioner, I know how difficult your job is and sincerely thank you for your time and effort. I also know the upside of your job – you can make people’s lives better. And how many people can really say that? One way you could make Sunset/Parkside resident’s lives better is to approve the bar at 3608 Taraval, and importantly, to allow it to be open until 2am. Everything pretty much shuts down out here at 10pm. We need options. And let’s face it, this is risky enough for the applicant as it is; Let’s not hamstring this thing. The Outer Sunset/Parkside is currently underserved for bars and restaurants. The local pizza place has lines out the door. There’s no walkable bar here I would take my parents to. We badly need more retail, especially bars and restaurants, to make the neighborhood more vital and walkable and to give our corners more redundancy in case one place is closed. I carry on my service to community by now serving as neighborhood watch captain, and I know the community out here vastly favors this bar opening. I know the proprietor, Matt Lopez, as a neighbor and surfer and he is truly an outstanding member of our community. He’s lived here his whole life and has devoted himself to this 100%. We want to help Matt be successful however we can. Bars are one of our cultural institutions, defining corners from Manhattan to San Francisco since our country was founded. Our neighborhood needs this one. I urge you to support the new bar opening at Taraval and 47th Ave. and to allow it to operate until 2am. Thank you,

Brian Veit 1798 Great Hwy #1 SF CA 94122

I am a resident of the Sunset District, a small business owner, and a personal friend of Matt Lopez. I have known Matt for over 20 years. He is a respected member of this community, and I am confident he will run a very professional business. This neighborhood is lacking a higher end bar, and this project will fill that need. Regarding the late-night permit, I fully support the new bar being allowed to open until 2am. There is already a business on the same block of Taraval that is open until that time. Allowing the new bar to remain open late would not dramatically change the dynamic of this neighborhood. Regards, Jeff Duerson 415-994-0397 2030 48th Ave San Francisco, CA 94116

To whom it may concern at the City Planning Commision, I am writing on behalf of Matt Lopez, a good colleague, respected friend and member of the community, as well as on behalf of the entire Sunset community. I am writing in regards of the new business at 3608 Taraval St and the hours of operation. I have been a Sunset and Outer Richmond resident for 7 years now and can speak to the need and want of the residents here who have been waiting for such an establishment to open. There is a need for more food and drink businesses locations in the area, and there is an entire community that wants to support them, however closing down at an early hour is a major shortcoming. San Francisco and the Sunset District are a hub of creative and unique residents. Over the last 5 years we have seen serious a serious shift of long time residents being pushed out of their neighborhoods. This community needs a place that people can gather, connect, and thrive. Please consider extending the hours of this business. Taraval Street has undergone a long deserved change - and in the right direction for that matter. It would be a shame to close down early and send people home, or to other parts of the city that benefit from their commerce and community support. Thank you for your time and consideration. I urge you to take our requests into consideration with a perspective of the long term benefits in mind and the people who live, shop, and gather together in this location. Best, Rosemary Williams
