(a) Purpose. New development in the Van Ness & Market Residential Special Use District will increase the resident populations, generating new demand for use of community facilities, such as cultural facilities, health clinics, services for people with disabilities, and job training centers. New revenues to fund investments in community services are necessary to maintain the existing level of service. This fee will generate revenue that will be used to ensure an expansion in community service facilities as new development occurs in the Van Ness & Market Residential Special Use District area.
(b) Findings. In adopting the amendments to the Market and Octavia Area Plan (Ordinance No. 125-20), on file with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors in File No. 200557, and corresponding amendments to the Planning Code (Ordinance No. 126-20 on file with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors in File No. 200559), the Board of Supervisors reviewed the Central SoMa Community Facilities Nexus Study, prepared by Economic & Planning Systems and dated March 2016, as well as the Hub Community Facilities Nexus Memo, prepared by the Planning Department and dated June 29, 2020 (collectively the “Nexus Study” for the purposes of Sections 425et seq.). The Board of Supervisors reaffirms the findings and conclusions of the Nexus Study as they relate to the impact of new development in the Van Ness & Market Special Use District on community services facilities and hereby adopts the findings contained in the Nexus Study.
