One of the last South San Francisco farmlands is looking to be developed with a Public Hearing coming before the Planning Commission on Thursday December 4, 2014 at 7pm at the MSB 33 Arroyo Drive.
This 1.7 acre site owned by Antonio Cuneo is located in the Sunshine Gardens neighborhood with boundaries at Mission Road, Baywood and Edgewood Avenues. This proposed development would include the following:
4 Single family 2 story homes with 3-5 bedrooms, garage, driveway, and 4 guest parking spaces with access via Baywood Avenue
31 Townhome style 3 story-3 bedroom Condos with 4-7 units per building, with garage and guest parking. Ten of these units and 1 guest parking space would be accessible via Edgewood Avenue and with the balance having access via Mission Road.
Other amenities of this BART Transit Village would include a children’s playground.
Units and homes would be sold to private parties with 20% (7 units) designated to low and medium income per the City’s Inclusionary Housing Regulations with 2 incentives to the developer: height increase from 25 to 35 feet and architectural designs. The City would remain involved in this process through the City’s first time home buyer program and would oversee the application and lottery process. Additional requirements may be put forth beyond the income limits per the Staff reports.
At the November 2014 city outreach meeting approximately 20 residents attended and voiced concern over the impact this development would have on the existing neighborhood as Baywood and Edgewood Avenues have been ‘cu-de-sac’ areas since they were built in 1952. Traffic and privacy concerns were among the hottest issues. Project plans take into consideration privacy for the existing neighborhood by placing townhouse windows on the east side to minimize direct visibility between the new and the old.
For those who would like to speak at this Public Hearing, please arrive a bit before 7pm and fill out a speaker card which is located in the back of the Chambers. Return your completed card to the Clerk in the front and wait for your name to be called. Upon hearing your name, proceed to the podium where you will be allowed to address the Planning Commission for up to 3 minutes.
