SEC. 94A.1.  THE PLACES FOR PEOPLE PROGRAM; ESTABLISHMENT AND PURPOSE; CORE AGENCY JURISDICTION.
   (a)   Establishment and Purpose. There is hereby created a San Francisco Places for People Program (“Program” or “Places for People Program”). A People Place is intended to be a temporary space on City-owned property, and in some cases also on nearby privately-owned spaces, where the public can gather and participate in various commercial or non-commercial offerings and events. Under the Program, a public or private entity may obtain City approval to create a People Place by occupying the location with reversible physical treatments or improvements and/or activating the location with programming.
      This Chapter 94A sets forth a streamlined process by which the Planning Department, Department of Public Works, Municipal Transportation Agency, Department of Real Estate, and Entertainment Commission (collectively, defined in Section 94A.2 as the “Core City Agencies”), and their successor agencies or departments, if any, will coordinate the review and approval of a request to occupy and activate such spaces and issue a permit to authorize the use.
   (b)   Core City Agency Jurisdiction Retained. Each Core City Agency shall retain its full authority under the City Charter and applicable Codes to authorize the use, impose conditions on the “People Place Permit,” and enforce the Agency’s requirements. In particular, this Article1 94A is not intended (1) to be an alternative to the process for review and approval of activities on public streets unrelated to the Places for People Program by the Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation (ISCOTT) contained in Article 6 of the Transportation Code or (2) to preclude the Director of Public Works from exercising the authority to regulate activities on the public right-of-way under sections of the Public Works Code that are unrelated to the Places for People Program.
      The procedures by which the Department of Public Works and Municipal Transportation Agency will review and approve a permit issued pursuant to this Chapter 94A are set forth in Section 793et seq. of the Public Works Code (for Public Works) and Division II of the Transportation Code (for MTA). The Department of Real Estate’s procedures are set forth in Section 94A.8 of this Chapter. The Entertainment Commission’s jurisdiction over “Limited Live Performance Locales” is set forth in Section 1060 of the Police Code.

      (2)   Conditions of Approval; Liability Insurance and Indemnity Provisions. The People Place Permit sets forth the permit terms, conditions of approval, operational requirements, and duration of the People Place and is approved by all the Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place. In addition to any conditions that a Core City Agency is authorized to impose on a People Place Permit pursuant to the provisions of this Chapter 94A , a participating Core City Agency with jurisdiction over the People Place shall impose any condition that it would have been required to impose on a permit separately issued under the Code that regulates its activities; provided, however, that Public Works, with the approval of the City’s Risk Manager, is authorized to modify standard liability insurance and indemnification requirements for People Place projects. For People Place projects developed in whole or in part, or installed in whole or in part, by a City Agency, Public Works, with the approval of the City’s Risk Manager, may limit the Steward’s required liability insurance and indemnification requirements to the non-physical aspects of the People Place.
      (3)   Limited Duration. A People Place Permit is intended to be temporary and has a limited duration. The standard term for a Curbside People Place, a Roadway People Place, or a Sidewalk People Place Permit shall be for no longer than two years, after which it may be renewed or extended upon review and approval by the Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place. The standard term of a City Lot People Place Permit shall be no longer than five years, which may be extended by the Director of Real Estate pursuant to the provisions of Section 94A.8(d).
   (d)   Permit Cover Sheet. The approval of the People Place Permit shall be memorialized by a Permit Cover Sheet that is attached to the Permit. The Permit Cover Sheet must be signed by a person designated by the Director of each Core City Agency with jurisdiction over the proposed People Place. A Core City Agency with jurisdiction over the proposed People Place may, at its own discretion, request that a person designated by the Director of another Core City Agency involved in the review of the People Place Permit also sign the Permit Cover Sheet.
   (e)   Stewardship Agreement. At the request of a Core City Agency with jurisdiction over the People Place Category, the Program and Steward will jointly develop a People Place Stewardship Agreement for approval by all the Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place. The Stewardship Agreement will impose conditions and operational requirements on the People Place that are in addition to those set forth in the People Place Permit. A copy of the Stewardship Agreement, approved by the applicable Core City Agencies, shall be attached to the People Place Permit, and its provisions shall be considered permit requirements equivalent to those set forth in the People Place Permit and enforceable pursuant to Section 94A.10.
   (f)   Coordination of Additional Permits Required from Other City Agencies. Certain activities may require additional permits or approvals from another City agency, board, commission, or department that is not a Core City Agency.

   (h)   Modification of a People Place Permit; Withdrawal of Approval.
      (1)   Permit Modification. People Place Permits on public space are revocable at will. Therefore, each Core City Agency that has approved issuance of a People Place Permit may at any time modify those portions of the Permit that are within its jurisdiction, including any conditions. If a Core City Agency makes a determination to modify the People Place Permit or any conditions that it has imposed, or to impose additional conditions, the Agency shall notify Planning and the other Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place.
         Upon notification of a modification of the Permit, Planning and any Core City Agency that approved issuance of the People Place Permit shall determine if other portions of the Permit also need to be modified, or if the entire People Place Permit needs to be revoked pursuant to subsection (i) below. A new People Place Permit is required to be issued if Planning and the other participating Core City Agencies determine that the proposed modifications are major. Minor modifications to a People Place Permit may be made without the issuance of a new Permit. The Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place will notify the Steward of any permit modifications or if revocation of the entire Permit pursuant to subsection (i) below is required.
      (2)   Withdrawal of Approval. A Core City Agency may at any time withdraw its approval of the People Place Permit. If a Core City Agency makes a determination to withdraw its approval of the People Place Permit, the Agency shall notify Planning and the Core City Agencies that approved issuance of the People Place Permit of its decision to sever from the permit those portions that are within the Agency’s jurisdiction. Upon receipt of a notification of severance, Planning and any Core City Agencies that approved issuance of the Permit shall determine if the severance requires revocation of the permit in its entirety pursuant to subsection (i) below, or whether the permit can be modified. If the remaining Core City Agencies determine that the severance does not require revocation but requires a major modification of the permit, a new People Place Permit must be issued.
         The Core City Agency or Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place will send the Steward written notification of the severance and any resulting modification or revocation of the People Place Permit.
   (i)   Permit Revocation. A People Place Permit issued pursuant to this Chapter 94A may be revoked at any time by the Core City Agencies that approved issuance of the Permit or, if revocation is required by a modification or withdrawal of approval by a Core City Agency pursuant to subsection (h)(1) or (h)(2) above, by the remaining Core City Agencies that approved issuance of the Permit. The revocation process may be initiated by:
      (1)   a request for revocation from one or more of the Core City Agencies that approved issuance of the People Place Permit;
      (2)   notification of a permit modification by a Core City Agency pursuant to subsection (h)(1) above; or
      (3)   notification of withdrawal of approval by a Core City Agency pursuant to subsection (h)(2) above.
      If the People Place Permit is revoked, the Core City Agencies with jurisdiction over the People Place shall send the Steward written notification of the revocation.

      (2)   Exceptions; Public Notice. Upon written request from a Steward, the Director of Real Estate may grant a non-material exception or other minor amendment to the conditions imposed on a City Lot People Place Permit if the Director determines that the exception or minor amendment is reasonably within the purposes of the Places for People Program and, in consultation with the City Attorney’s Office, further determines that such exception or amendment does not materially increase the City’s costs or obligations or decrease the benefit the City receives under the Steward’s City Lot People Place Permit.
         Any exceptions or minor amendments of the Permit conditions that the Director has granted pursuant to this subsection (c)(2) shall be in writing and retained in a file available for public review.

      (2)   Other Operational Requirements. Upon written request from a Steward, the Director of Real Estate is authorized to waive or modify one or more of the other Operational Requirements in Section 94A.7 if the Director finds, in his or her sole discretion, that the Requirement is unwarranted or not appropriate for a particular City Lot People Place or event due to special circumstances and that the public interest would be served by granting an exception.

Any person may appeal the decision to grant or deny an application for any People Place Permit, or to revoke or suspend an existing Permit, to the Board of Appeals pursuant to the provisions of Charter Section 4.106 and Section 8et seq. of the Business & Tax Regulations Code; provided, however, that any portion of the People Place Permit that has been approved by the MTA pursuant to its Charter authority may be heard and decided by the Board of Appeals only upon authorization by the MTA Board of Directors. In the absence of such authorization, those portions of the People Place Permit that fall within the MTA’s Charter authority shall be severed from the appeal and heard pursuant to the process that applies to appeals of MTA approvals.

Pursuant to Section 8(i)(5) of the Business and Tax Regulations Code, any activities on the site would be suspended during the pendency of the appeal; however, the Core City Agency or Agencies with jurisdiction over the site may, in their discretion, authorize any authorized physical treatments or improvements to the site to remain pending a decision by the Board of Appeals.

SEC. 94A.10.  ENFORCEMENT OF REQUIREMENTS.
   (a)   Complaints from the Public. The 311 Customer Relationship Management System is designated to receive complaints from the public and to maintain an interagency complaint log. The 311 System shall route individual public complaints to the department(s) or agency(ies) with jurisdiction in order for those departments or agencies to verify complaints regarding the People Place Program or a particular People Place and take any necessary enforcement actions.
   (b)   Enforcement of People Place Permit Requirements.
      (1)   Each Core City Agency shall enforce the requirements of the People Place Permit that are within its jurisdiction. Enforcement may be exercised either by (A) using the procedures of Section 94A.6 to modify conditions of the issued permit, or to withdraw approval of the permit by severance or revocation, or (B) using the enforcement provisions of the Code that regulates its activities: the Public Works Code for Public Works; the Transportation Code for the MTA; and the Police Code for the Entertainment Commission. Enforcement by the Director of Real Estate is set forth in subsection (b)(2) below.
      (2)   The Director of Real Estate shall establish administrative procedures and methods for verifying, addressing, and responding to any complaints concerning a City Lot People Place. If the Director receives a verified complaint concerning violations of the terms and conditions of a Steward’s City Lot People Place Permit, the Director may conduct a public hearing on the Steward’s conduct. Based on the information presented at the hearing, the Director or his or her designee may revoke, suspend, modify, or condition the People Place Permit or take any other action the Director deems appropriate under the terms of the People Place Permit to address the Steward’s conduct.
         If any person occupies a City Lot People Place in violation of the applicable requirements and regulations, the Director of Real Estate or his or her designee shall order the violator to either correct the violation or vacate the People Place site. If the violation is not corrected as ordered, the violator shall be subject to enforcement pursuant to the Police Code.

SEC. 94A.11.  FEES.
   (a)   People Place Permit Fee. Pursuant to Section 94A.6 (c)(1), a People Place Permit substitutes for a permit that would otherwise be required by the Municipal Code. The fees for a People Place Permit in the public right-of-way shall be one-half the fees that Public Works is authorized by Article 2.1 of the Public Works Code to charge for a permit granting permission to occupy a portion of the public right-of-way that is equivalent in scope to the People Place Permit. These fees shall be paid to Public Works pursuant to Section 793.2(b) of the Public Works Code.
   (b)   Other Fees. Nothing in this Section 94A.11 or in Chapter 94A is intended to preclude a Core City Agency, or other City department or agency, from charging the fees authorized to be charged for any additional permits required or for services performed in implementing the People Place Proposal, including but not limited to fees related to time and material costs of ongoing enforcement and inspection, provided, however, that due to the public nature of the improvements, no ongoing occupancy assessment fee shall be charged. Any other fee charged by a Core City Agency, or other City department or agency, in connection with a People Place Permit shall be one-half the fee that the agency or department is authorized to charge for such permit.
   (c)   Condition of Approval. Payment of all fees due shall be a condition of any permit, license, or other approval to establish and/or operate a People Place.
