107, 111 and 119 Buena Vista Avenue, AP# 195-191-06, 195-191-09 and 191-195-31, Folsom, Willson, Mull Trust,
owners: Mr. Dinges made a presentation summarizing the application and recommended adoption of the
Resolution. The Board discussed various aspects of the Waiver including pumping frequency, mutual agreements
between the parties, step system hook up requirements, permanent pumping hook up located at the street level,
replacement restraints as regards current District Code, recent permitted construction at the 107 Buena Vista
location, the shared "common area", three applications vs. a single application, three separate Discharge Permit
requirements, alarm telemetry, three separate resolutions, on-site water courses, and irrevocable easement
agreement. Motion to adopt Resolution WW-2003-03, WW-2003-04 and WW-2003-05 granting Waivers, including
the provisions that all applicants be required to install mandatory hook-up to a step system when it becomes
available, to install telemetry, and to invoke an irrevocable easement agreement dedicated to the District which

Director Veit, adopted by unanimous vote.
Continuation of Request to Install a Temporary Water Meter at 15 Calle del Mar, George Hasler, Owner Jeffrey
Trotter, Agent: Director Tye excused himself from the Board due to possible conflict of interest, and left the building
for this item. Mr. Dinges summarized the Manager's Report, recommending adoption of the Resolution. Motion to
adopt the Variance Resolution made by Director Veit, motion died for lack of a second. The Board discussed
various aspects of the Variance request including the purpose of the request for a second meter in order to mitigate
cost allocation problems between the owner and the agent and the fact that this request can not be construed as an
attempt to legitimize a lot split. Mr. Dinges advised the Board that he had been told that Shakespeare at Stinson
had adhered to the time schedule adopted as and addendum to Resolution WW-2002-04. The Board expressed
concerns regarding the multiple Waivers and Variances already granted to the property and regarding the previous
agreement which conditioned all changes/applications at Shakespeare at Stinson to be contingent on notification to
all relevant agencies. Mr. Richard Reasoner, of 280 Belvedere, expressed concerns regarding the apparent
diminishing enforcement of regulations at Shakespeare at Stinson and the storm-damaged structures which
continue to remain un-repaired, and questioned District Board involvement in resolving a landlord/tenant dispute.
The Board continued the item to the next Regular meeting and directed the applicant to notify the appropriate
agencies. Director Tye returned to the Board.
