Consideration to Recommend to the Board of Supervisors Landmark Designation of the Diamond Heights Safety Wall as an individual Article 10 Landmark pursuant to Section 1004.1 of the Planning Code. Constructed in 1968, the Diamond Heights Safety Wall is the notable work of Bay Area artist and architect, Stefan Alexander Novak, is an important visual landmark for the Diamond Heights neighborhood, and is significantly associated with the Diamond Heights Redevelopment Project, which dramatically reshaped the area into a neighborhood characterized by postwar Modernist master planning and Bay Area regional Modernist design.

It is located in a Residential-House, Two-Family (RH-2) zoning district and 40-X Height and Bulk district.

  • The Recreation and Parks Commission meets Thursday, December 21 at 10 a.m. in City Hall, room 416.

I’m told agendas are published 72 hours before the meetings. You can be put on the email list to receive agendas, but 1) I’ve never received one in my email despite being on the list and 2) I’ve been on the site 72 hours before other RecPark commission meetings and not seen agendas. Here is the link to the site where agendas should be published.

  • The SF Planning Commission meets Thursday, December 21 at 1 p.m. in City Hall, room 400. See supporting documents here. Presumably agenda will be available soon.

Supporting documents include a presentation on the 2016 SF Housing Inventory, which seemed noteworthy.
