This Section 4.1-3 shall apply to all buildings on land owned by the City and County of San Francisco ("City") and all buildings that are leased to or by the City, whether such buildings are new or existing. For existing buildings, the City department or agency with jurisdiction over the building shall have six months from the effective date of this Section to comply with the requirements.
(a) New Construction. At least one all-gender toilet facility shall be provided on each floor in any new building constructed on City-owned land or that is constructed by or for the City where toilet facilities are required or provided. For purposes of this subsection (a) and subsection (b), below, "all-gender toilet facility" means a toilet facility that is not restricted to use by persons of a specific sex or gender identity by signage, design, or installation of fixtures.
(b) Existing Buildings. Unless not allowed by an existing lease, whenever extensive renovations are made on one or more floors in any building on land that the City owns or in a building that is leased to or by the City, at least one all-gender toilet facility shall be provided on each floor where the renovations take place and toilet facilities are required or provided. For purposes of this subsection (b), "extensive renovations" shall mean a renovation where the renovation construction costs exceed 50% of the costs of providing toilet facilities that comply with the requirements of this Section 4.1-3.
(c) If there are five or more toilet facilities in the building that are designed for use by multiple occupants, at least one such facility in the building shall be identified as all-gender by the recognized California geometric symbol for such facilities so long as the minimum number of separate male and female toilet facilities required by Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations is maintained. The City official with management authority over the building shall decide which toilet facilities shall be designated.
(d) Nothing in this Section 4.1-3 shall be construed as requiring or authorizing (1) a reduction in the number of toilet facilities that are required by Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations or (2) a reduction in the number of toilet facilities accessible to persons with disabilities that are otherwise required under either Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations or the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act.
