On October 25, 2012 the Planning Commission approved changes to the Preservation Ordinance. The new version identifies specific parcels to be preserved. The ordinance will go to the City Council for final approval in mid November. If your property is listed in the ordinance this will affect you. Only one of the affected property owners, Al DeGrout from Novartis, was present. He requested a delay so other property owners could be informed. His request was ignored. We feel the selection criteria is too objective. The impact of preserving these facilities is not being considered. Some question the necessity to preserve the PG&E warehouse facility between 45th & 53rd St, and others on the list. Below is a copy of the proposed ordinance, including the list of properties subject to this ordinance..
