Next neighborhood meeting:
Wednesday, 11/11/2015
7:30 to 9pm

NCPC -- Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council for Beat 9X with Tui Pollard, Community Resource Officer -- Bring your questions and concerns.

8pm: City's proposal for secondary (in-law) units which is to go to council very shortly. From Valerie Winemiller, PANIL Land Use Chair-- The secondary unit proposal, designed to respond to the "Roadmap for Housing Affordability" passed earlier this year by council, would allow new secondary units to be created without additional parking in areas within a half mile of BART, or of major bus stops on routes with buses 15 minutes apart or less. This puts most of the Piedmont Ave neighborhood under these new regs. Requirements for setbacks would also be loosened to allow living units on the lot line for conversion of existing structures (i.e., garages are legal at the lot line, but habitable units are not currently,so this would allow legal conversion), and to 4 feet for new structures, where currently one must have 5 feet on the side lot line and 10 feet on the rear lot line.
