(a) General. A Special Use District entitled the Bayshore Boulevard Home Improvement Special Use District, the boundaries of which are designated on Sectional Maps SU08 and SU10 of the Zoning Map of the City and County of San Francisco, is hereby established for the purposes set forth below. The Bayshore Boulevard Home Improvement Special Use District consists of properties on lots fronting Bayshore Boulevard from Jerrold Avenue south to the I-280 Freeway, the west side of Loomis Street from Jerrold Avenue south to the I-280 Freeway, Oakdale Avenue from Loomis Street to Bayshore Boulevard, Marengo Street from Bayshore Boulevard to Waterloo Street and the west side of Boutwell Street from Industrial Street south to the I-280 Freeway, and also include some lots on Cortland Avenue; the blocks and lots included in the Bayshore Boulevard Home Improvement Special Use District are designated in amendments to Sectional Maps SU08 and SU010 of the Zoning Map of the City and County of San Francisco.
(b) Purpose. The purpose of the Bayshore Boulevard Home Improvement Special Use District is to encourage and promote businesses of varying types that are focused on home improvement, particularly those that emphasize sensitivity to the environment and sustainable use of natural resources through products offered and/or treatment of the site and building. The Bayshore Boulevard Home Improvement Special Use District intends to create a mixed commercial district, which includes retail and production, distribution and repair businesses, to enable synergies between retail and other businesses dedicated to the physical improvement of property and related home furnishings. The intent of this district is also to retain and promote locally grown businesses and to provide employment opportunities at a wide range of levels for local residents. The Special Use District is located in a Redevelopment Plan Area, for which local hiring is an explicitly stated goal. The Bayview Hunters Point "Employment and Contracting Policy," an adopted Redevelopment Agency document, establishes construction, permanent, and trainee goals for certain types of projects in the area. These goals meet or exceed the requirements of Chapter 83 of the San Francisco Administrative Code (First Source Hiring Policy) and San Francisco's CityBuild Program. This Special Use District was created in conjunction with other citywide initiatives to physically and economically improve the project area and create a coherent and identifiable place in San Francisco for consumers to find home improvement related businesses and services.
