Neighborhood meeting tonight

A message from Affordable Divis:

Tonight: 400 Divisadero presents to Affordable Divis

We're not done with 650 Divisadero, but 400 Divisadero has started the process to file their project application. Come hear about this proposal for the Touchless Carwash/Shell Station property at Oak and Divisadero, and what the developer has to say about a commitment for on-site affordable housing. 

The SF Weekly covered last week's 400 Divisadero meeting at the Independent, hosted by NOPNA and ASNA.

400 Divisadero proposal

From the SF Weekly story linked above:

...Due to a rezoning of Divisadero Street launched by District 5 Sup. London Breed in 2015, 400 Divisadero is a bit trickier to develop than other projects in the city right now. In 2015, the Divisadero corridor from Haight Street up to Geary Blvd. was rezoned from a neighborhood commercial district (NC-2) to a neighborhood commercial transit district (NCT). 

One little word allowed higher density housing to be built along Divisadero Street, more than tripling the original housing proposal for 400 Divisadero from 51 units to 177.

Then came the backlash. Neighbors from the group Affordable Divis accused Sup. Breed of upzoning the neighborhood without community input and without increasing affordability requirements. Then in 2016, Sup. Breed promised to increase affordable rates on Divisadero and Fillmore up to 23 percent. But according to Gus Hernandez, president of the Alamo Square Neighborhood Association, Breed has yet to follow through on that promise.

While Breed skipped Monday’s meeting, Samantha Roxas, Breed’s legislative aide, showed up to answer questions from neighbors. Roxas told SF Weekly that the supervisor is “looking into requiring (on-site affordable units)” to be built on the site. Roxas hinted that the new study, set to be presented to the Planning Commission Thursday, shows that a 22 or 23 percent on-site inclusionary requirement is feasible...
