Survey on Diviz and Oak development

Neighbors Developing Divisadero sends this:

Your two cents

Take this survey to shape the future of inclusive development at SE Divis & Oak.

158 units of housing along with ground floor retail have been proposed to replace the Shell gas station and car wash at 444 Divisadero. Neighbors Developing Divisadero has created an online survey so that we can take the neighborhood pulse on this proposed project. Here's your chance to weigh in on the proposal. This survey is geared towards neighbors who reside in the following zip codes: 94117, 94115, and 94118.

It's great that helped bring this to neighbors' attention with their recent article so that we can provide preliminary feedback to the project sponsors and Planning Department in an easy to read report, rather than waiting to give public comment on an EIR designation hearing a year down the road. 

Read the full preliminary project assessment here.

Neighbors Developing Divisadero has a mission to support inclusive, enriching, and sustainable neighborhood development in the Divisadero Corridor and surrounding neighborhoods. In alignment with the results of 2014's Proposition K, Neighbors Developing Divisadero actively promotes the inclusion of at least 33% on-site units for low-and- moderate-income households and at least 50% on-site units for middle-class households.

Rob's comment: The project calls for only 78 parking spots for 158 housing units. Instead there should be a parking spot for every unit.

Wow... I'm really excited to see this proposal. Anything is better than a gas station and this looks like a solid one. But you're wrong about parking. There should be ZERO parking spots in this development. That is the new reality, get used to it!

You mean if we don't build parking spaces people will stop driving cars? The opposite is the reality: a shortage of parking leads to more traffic congestion.

Every American shall be provided one (1) parking spot whether they need it or not. It's in the Constitution.

Didn't Ed Reiskin say at a hearing that at least 30% of the traffic congestion in San Francisco is caused by cars circling again and again looking for parking? Why is it so horrible for new projects to provide off street parking?

Other surveys conclude that people are less likely to own cars if they aren't provided with parking. I'd build zero parking.
This also will make the units more affordable

There is a mega residential project (was originally 380' now going to 400') at Mission and So.Van Ness, the GoodWill site. As part of that project the city will also build a 200' tower to consolidate DPW. The two project combined will have 120 parking space. Go figure...I just KNOW that people will own cars that move there, and they will be endlessly circling for street parking.
