City Hall Hearing: Utility Box Blight


The San Francisco Planning Dept has given AT&T permission to install 726 utility boxes on public sidewalks throughout the city. Most of these utility boxes will be about 4 feet high, 4 feet wide and 30 inches deep. AT&T is implementing its rollout neighborhood by neighborhood- many affected communities are still unaware of the project and its impact on city sidewalks.

San Francisco Beautiful has filed an appeal, which will be heard by the full Board of Supervisors:

Tuesday, April 26 at 4pm
Board Chambers, 2nd Floor, Room 250
San Francisco City Hall

More information is available at San Francisco Beautiful. Please plan to attend the hearing and support their effort.

Pre-Application Meeting Replay


A meeting was held on December 21 to review the development proposed for 1050 Valencia. 15 neighbors attended and found that none of their earlier concerns had been addressed in the plans presented by the architect, Steven Antonaros. The plans also failed to incorporate any of the suggestions made by the Historic Preservation Commission or the Planning Commission.

The proposed building will be 55′ tall plus a roof deck, including 15 units over a commercial space and 4 parking spaces. The plans also appeared to include rooms without windows and apartments without bathrooms.

Some of the neighbors’ concerns are the height and bulk of the building, lack of parking, having the service entrance on Hill Street, and the unit density.

A video recording of the entire meeting is available for viewing here:
