La Playa Safeway Neighbors,
Thank you again to the neighbors who attended our February 24 community meeting and to everyone that has provided comments on the “Underground Dock Plan” site plan and architecture. We appreciate all of the feedback and have been studying several of the suggestions we received.
We have added a landscape architect, acoustical (sound) engineer, and transportation planner to our project team. These experts will assist us in addressing the neighbor-specific interests that have been raised this past year.
Additionally, the San Francisco Planning Department is requesting that Safeway submit a Preliminary Project Assessment (PPA). The PPA is a new informal City process that reviews projects internally before a formal development application is filed. This preliminary assessment is designed to give project applicants initial City feedback and procedural instructions within sixty days. The PPA is not a development application and issuance of a PPA letter isnot a development approval or denial. To learn more about the PPA, please visit the City’s website:
Safeway will turn in its PPA on Tuesday, June 14, 2011, and post a copy to the La Playa Safeway website:
To reiterate, the PPA is not a formal project application but rather a pre-application assessment.
Safeway is continuing to refine the “Underground Dock Plan” to address neighbor questions about sound implications, parking circulation and the interim use of land intended for residential development. We do not have an official date for formal project application, but would estimate a Fall 2011 submittal. We will keep you updated on our timing for submitting a formal project application.
We appreciate the public involvement that has helped to shape this new Safeway. There will be many more opportunities for input as we move through the submittal and review process. In the near future, we are working with PAR to get on the agenda of one of its upcoming general membership meetings. We will email and post the date once it is confirmed. In the meantime, if you have questions or comments, or would like to see the virtual 3-D model of the site plan calibrated to your address, please let me know by reply email.
