(a) Intent. It is the intent of this Section 175.1 to provide for an orderly transition from prior zoning and planning requirements to the requirements under the Central SoMa Controls, without impairing the validity of prior actions by the City or frustrating completion of actions authorized prior to the effective date of those Controls.
(b) Definitions. The following definitions shall apply to this Section 175.1:
(1) “Central SoMa Controls” shall mean all Ordinances adopted in furtherance of the Central SoMa Area Flan, including but not limited to Ordinance Nos. 282-18 & 283-18, and associated amendments to the Planning Code, Zoning Map, and Administrative Code.
(2) “Development Application” is defined in Planning Code Section 401.
(3) “Project Approval” shall mean any required approval or determination on a Development Application that the Planning Commission, Planning Department, or Zoning Administrator issues.
(4) “Code Conforming Project” shall mean a development project for which all required Development Applications could have received Project Approval under the Planning Code immediately prior to the effective date of the Central SoMa Controls.
(c) Applicability. A Code Conforming Project within the Central SoMa Special Use District may elect to be exempt from the Central SoMa Controls and instead be subject to those controls in place immediately prior to the effective date of the Central SoMa Controls, if at least one Development Application for such project was filed before February 15, 2018 and the project receives its first Project Approval by December 31, 2019.
