RE: 3139 Mission Street
        Block: 5501 Lot: 046


Dear Mr. Margusov:

This letter is in response to your request for a zoning letter of determiation for the property at
3139 Mission Street. This parcel is located in the NC-3 (Moderate Scale, Neighborhood
Commercial) zoning district with a 50-X height and bulk limtation. The request was to
determe whether a Medical Canabis Dispensary (MCD) use would be permitted at the
subject location.


Under Plang Code Section 790.141, an MCD is subject to the following requirements:

    1. The MCD canot locate within 1,000 feet of a parcel containing:
           a. A public or private elementary or secondary school; or
           b. A community clubhouse that primarily serves persons under 1~ yèars of age; or
           c. A neighborhood çenter as defied in Section 221(e) of ths Code that     primarily
                 serves persons under 18 years of age, uness not required by State law;

   2. The MCD is not located on the same parcel as a facility providing substance abuse
       services that is licensed or certiied by the State of California or fuded by the
       Department of Public Health;

   3. No alcohol is sold or distributed on the premises for on or off-site consumption;

   4. If medical canabis is smoked on the premises the dispensary shall provide adequate
       ventiation with the strcture such that the doors and windows are not left open for
       such purposes, resultig in odor emission from the premises; and,

128 South Lake Merced Hil                                                    3139 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA 94132



    5. In addition to these requirements, an MCD must meet all of the requirements in Article
          33 of the San Francisco Health Code.

This letter provides a preliary analysis of the subject zoning and proximty to nearby
schools and open spaces, which can be indicative of a recreation building. It does not determe
the approvability of the subject property as a MCD location. Please note that ths letter does
not replace the need for an MCD application and is not an approval or disapproval
determination for a MCD use. With respect to the subject property:

NC-3 zoned properties may be permitted to operate MCD establishments between 8 a.m. and
10 p.m. Attached is a map to show the open space and schools located within a 1,000 foot
'radius of the above referenced propert. The subject propert does not appear to be located
within 1,000 feet of a primary or secondary schooL. While it does not appear that it is within
1,000 feet of a recreation building located on public propert we have not investigated the
location's proximity to other recreation buildings. Accordingly, and based on the information
available to the Planning Departent, the subject property appears eligible to be an MCD
location. As stated in the Planning Departent's MCD application, you wil need to confirm
this, along with other applicable requirements before your application can be considered
complete or code complying.

If you believe this determination represents an error in interpretation of the Plang Code or
abuse in discretion by the Zonig administrator, an appeal may be filed with the Board of
Appeals within 15 days of the date of ths letter. For information regarding the appeals process,
please contact the Board of Appeals located at 1650 Mission Street, Room 304, San Francisco, or
call (415) 575-6885.

Dear Mr ßaQiii

This is to request a Letter of                Determination for the following project

Project Description
Project sponsor proposes to convert existing Propert/ Medical office at 3139 Mission S1.
to a Medical cannabis Dispensary (MCD).

Question for Determination
Verify that the following existing uses attached as exhibit A, exhibit B, and exhibit Care
not included in those prohibited by section 790.141 or 790.50(A) or any other facilities in
the surrounding area which would prohibit a MCD from opening at 3139 Mission S1. Of
the facilities in question G. of exhibit A. Mission Nursery children's center falls within
the proximity of 1000 ft however is a nursery school for handicapped children under 5
yrs of age. And in Exhibit C letter A. Salvation Ary Rehab Center at 1500 Valencia st
providing adult program services- Rehabilitation

Basis for Code Interpretation
The uses described above are not prohibited within 1000 feet of an MCD for the
following reasons:

* Section 790.           141(b) includes in list of   prohibited facilities "a community facility that
primarily serves persons under 18 years of age, or a recreation building as defined in
Section 790.50(a) of  this Code that primarily serves persons under 18 years of             age."
(There is also a reference to Section 790.50(f), not a part of current edition of Code,
which I assume is an editing error.)

* Section 795.50(a) defines assembly and social service use. Paragraphs following, (b)
through (e), not referenced by Section 790.141, define Child Care, Educational Service,
Religious Facility, and Residential Care, indicating that none of               them are prohibited.
                                                             July 192010

Page 2 of2

* The code sections detailing the various uses that might occur in NC Use Districts do not
include one called "Community Facility," even though that term is used in the text of
section 790.50(a). The term does occur in Section 209.4, which specifically excludes uses
"regulated by Section 209.3 of    this Code." Section 209.3 lists Hospital or other medical
institution; Residential care facilities (different sizes); Social service facility; Child-care
facilities (different sizes); Schools (various types); Church; and MCD, again indicating
that such uses are not prohibited (unless otherwise specified by Section 790.   141(b)).
* The definition of Church in Section 209.30) to include "used primarily (italics added)
for collective worship or ritual or observance of common religious beliefs" supports
classifying Sunday School as an accessory use to Church rather than a "school," which is
prohibited.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this matter.
