It has been mentioned several times that people living at NB violates 
our lease. It is actually a bit more complicated. After looking up how 
2169 Mission is zoned. I found that it is not zoned for residential. A 
place to start looking is at 
http://www.sf-planning.org/index.aspx?page=2771#findzoning . That is the 
San Francisco Planning Department and you can find a list of changes, 
permits, and even how much things cost. Our place "Appears eligible for 
listing in the California Register of Historical Resources."

I am NOT a lawyer so this is just a guess after looking at the online 
records. I think that what they say is that floor 1 is zoned for food 
sales and floors 2 and 3 are light industrial. To allow sleeping / 
living in the space will at least require new permits from the, Planning 
Dept., Fire Dept., and Health Dept. as well as convincing the landlord.

I'm not sure how long flogging this issue will continue, but, in my 
opinion it is not up for debate. It is spelled out in both zoning law 
and our lease. Our object should be how do we stop it not how much 
should we allow.
