    The latest response to the EIR Request for Comments indicates that air quality risks may be higher than initially expected. Parts of Sunnyside east of Edna Street have been added to the APEZ map area. APEZ stands for Air Pollution Exposure Zone. If you care about this issue, speak up at the Planning Commission Hearing the afternoon of May 28, 2020.

    “In February 2020, after the release of the draft SEIR [the “Subsequent” EIR for the Balboa Reservoir development to which we had an opportunity to respond], the City and County of San Francisco, in collaboration with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (air district), updated the Community Risk Reduction Plan (CRRP) database of health impacts throughout the City…. the project remains outside of the Air Pollutant Exposure Zone (APEZ)…However, sensitive receptors in the immediate surrounding areas to the south and west would meet the APEZ criteria… This includes four daycares that previously were outside of the APEZ, residential receptors to the south of the project site along Ocean Avenue, and the City College campus and Multi-Use Building to the east of the project site. The majority of these background risk values [from diesel particulate matter (DPM) and PM2.5] have increased compared to the 2012 CRRP database included in the draft SEIR and draft SEIR Appendix E. This is the primary reason why the APEZ has expanded.”

    The map shows parts of Sunnyside in the expanded APEZ area.
