The PACR is a semi annual report of San Francisco's implementation of the Programmatic Agreement among the City and County of San Francisco, The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the California State Office of Historic Preservation for Historic Preservation Responsibilities mandated by Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and assumed by the City as a condition of accepting funds subject to regulation under 24 CFR Part 58.

Programmatic Agreement Compliance Report Tenth Reporting Period

Request for Release of Funds
Combined Finding of No Significant Impact and Notice of Intent to Request Release of Funds
200 Sixth Street
The Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development is preparing an Environmental Assessment for the 200-214 6th Street Affordable Housing project. The project sponsor, Mercy Housing Corporation, is proposing to use federal funds for the development of low income housing at 200-412 Sixth Street, which is currently occupied by the vacant Hugo Hotel, a contributor building to a National Register-eligible historic district. The housing development is intended to help close the gap between supply and demand for low income housing in San Francisco. The project is designed to accommodate a portion of the demand for new housing close to downtown that is near transit, jobs, retail services, cultural institutions, and regional transportation. The development would contribute 67 units toward the ABAG-projected housing need. All of these units would be affordable to very-low income households. The Proposed Action is the approval of a request for funds subject to regulation by 24 CFR Part 58.
As development of the site would involve Part 58 funding it is subject to the Programmatic Agreement by and among the City and County of San Francisco, the California State Historic Preservation Officer, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Regarding Historic Properties Affected By Use Of Revenue From The Department Of Housing And Urban Development Part 58 Programs executed in January 2007 (2007 PA).
In order to build the housing it will be necessary to demolish the existing structure, the vacant Hayston Apartment Building. The building is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and is a contributing resource to the 6th Street Lodginghouse Historic District. The 6th Street Lodginghouse Historic District is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places at the local level under Criterion A (Events) as the last surviving sizable group of low‐budget, single‐room‐occupancy (SRO) densely packed residential hotels built in the South of Market neighborhood to serve the single male seasonal workers and industrial army after the 1906 earthquake and fire.
The demolition of the structure would have an adverse effect upon a historic resource, the subject property, and upon the historic district. The California Historic Resources Information Center (IC) has advised this office that an archeological property is located within the Undertaking’s APE and has recommended that a survey be conducted as there is a moderate possibility of identifying Native American archeological resources and a high possibility of identifying historic-period archaeological resources in the project area. Hence, construction of the new housing development would involve ground disturbing activities that have the potential to disturb archaeological resources.
The Area of Potential Effects (APE) for the 200 6th Street project include lots facing 6th Street on the east and west from Stevenson Street to Folsom Street, and the lots facing Howard Street on the north side from 5th Street to 7th Street. In addition, the lot at the northwest corner of 6th and Stevenson is included.
It is the purpose of this notice is to advise the public of the opportunity to comment upon and consult in the Section 106 process for this project. Among other things, we would like this consultation to address the cultural and historical resource issues involving this project pursuant to Section 106 of the NHPA (36 CFR Part 800). We are inviting the public’s comments on this project pursuant to 36 CFR 800.4, as well as any other information that the public may have on the property or the proposed project.

MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT 55 LAGUNA STREET PROJECT
The Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development of the City and County of San Francisco (MOHCD) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) which describes the potential environmental effects of the proposed development of housing, retail and community uses at the San Francisco State Teachers College. The EA was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347), as amended, Title 24 Part 58 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and Council on Environmental Quality Regulations. (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508).
Based upon the EA, MOHCD has determined that the project is not an action that will result in a significant impact on the quality of the human environment and has published a Combined Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact and Notice of Intent to Request Release of Funds (FONSI/NOIRROF) in accordance with 24 CFR §58.43. The Finding of No Significant Impact is based upon compliance with mitigation measures which have been identified as necessary to reduce the environmental impacts of the proposed action to a point or level where they are determined to be no longer significant.
The FONSI/NOIRROF was published in the San Francisco Examiner on September 21, 2012 and is also posted on this website. It can be accessed by clicking the link below, “FONSI/NOIRROF”. The FONSI/NOIRROF was also mailed to individuals and groups known to be interested in the proposed action, to the local news media, to the appropriate tribal, local, State and Federal agencies; to the Regional Offices of the Environmental Protection Agency having jurisdiction and to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Field Office in San Francisco.
During the 30 day comment period, the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development received timely comments from the Law Offices of Mary Miles on behalf of the Coalition for Adequate Review (CAR) on October 3 and on October 21, 2012. MOHCD received a comment from Helene Whitson of Save the Laguna Street Campus on October 21, 2012. No other comments were timely submitted. Comments and Responses to the Comments can be accessed by clicking on the "Response to Comments" and "Appendices to Response to Comments" links below.
The Environmental Assessment has been modified as a result of the consideration of the comment received for the FONSI/NOIRROF. However, the original findings are still valid. The Final EA can be accessed by clicking on the "Final EA" link below.
The Environmental Review Record (ERR), including the Environmental Assessment and supporting documentation is on file at the MOH, 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103. It is available for review and may be examined or copied weekdays 9:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M. The Environmental Review Record is also available for review and downloading by clicking on the links below.
MOHCD submitted a Request for Release of Funds and Certification (RROF - form HUD-7015.15) to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Community Planning and Development on November 6, 2012. The RROF serves as a certification of the MOHCD’s compliance with environmental laws and regulations in the exercise of its duties as a responsible entity for environmental review, decision-making, and action that would otherwise apply to HUD under NEPA. The form also serves as a request for the release of funding. MOHCD has requested the release of an estimated $1,400,000 in HOPWA funding, $10,000,000 in Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) grants under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, as amended; and $400,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended; to undertake the proposed project.
HUD will accept objections to the Release of Funds and Environmental Certification for a period of fifteen days following the submission of the Request for Release of Funds. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Office of Community Planning and Development, United States Department of Housing and Urban Development at 600 Harrison Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
