million to build which levette could contribute $400,000. music in the park has been held at st. james in the past year attracting many in the community but some locals say they mostly avoid st. james park because it's frequented by the homeless. we asked one resident if he was concerned about the noise this would generate. >> yeah, it gets loud when they have their park parties here. but it's every once in a while. we can grin and bear it. it's not that big of a deal. if it will make the community better, all for it. >> reporter: this park has been a magnet for crime. a man was shot and killed near the park in august. last year, there were stabbings in the park with one resulting in a homicide. he plans to introduce this proposal for a park at a rules committee meeting in two weeks. we're meeting with him in the next hour and we'll talk to him about funding because he knows there is a concern about money being used for the general fund which he says that won't

expected to cut delays and keep planes moving even in bad weather. ktvu's pam cook is in our newsroom now. some say this is long overdue, pam. >> yes. san francisco, one of the last big city airports to make the change and it is good because it's also one of the worst in on-time performance. the faa has approved a change that would allow planes landing at sfo to stagger on the two parallel runways instead of having to line up single file which is what they have to do now. that means as many as 40 planes an hour could land even in low visibility. low visibility, aka fog, is one of the biggest problems at sfo. during clear visible conditions. the two aircraft and the crews can visually site one another and maintain separation. you get into low clouds and fog. it requires a greater debris of separation for safety. >> that separation slows arrivals from 60 planes an hour
to just 30 when the weather is bad. the main airports in boston, seattle and new jersey already use this system to improve on- time performance. now, in our next hour of "mornings on 2," we're gonna hear from passengers and pilots about on-time performance and what's going on at the airport. reporting live in the newsroom, pam cook, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right, pam. we're also hearing from the family of the man accused in the deadly shooting at l.a.x. on friday. in a statement, their lawyer read, the family is shocked by what happened last friday. they express condolences to the family of the tsa officer killed and to the people hurt but they say they will continue to support ciancia. he's still heavily sedated in a hospital. deadly shooting at los angeles international airport is also prompting calls for an armed tsa presence at airport screening checkpoints. now, the union representing tsa screeners say there should be a
new class of officers who would carry weapons. officials say armed officers would help protect the tsa officers and the public. attorney general eric holder says he will investigate ways to improve airport security. 7:47. a new san francisco report backs up the popular belief about rising property values, squeezing out long-time city residents. overall, haves are up 38% in san francisco in the -- evacuations are up 38% in the last three years. the biggest increase in those numbers happened just in the last year. today, the san francisco board of supervisors will vote on a bill that could make it harder to open up medical marijuana dispensaries in the excelsior district. if approved, there would be a tougher approval process to open dispensaries along mission

lawsuit, at least according to the attorney representing sonoma county. he says while he understands this is a trying time for the lopez family, he's concerned because the lawsuit was filed early, it do impede the pro -- it could impede the process before the criminal investigation is complete. they are expecting maybe up to 400 people here. we'll have a live report at noon and more reports coming up later in the day. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. also new this morning, controversial gun restrictions have passed in contra costa county. the pleasant hill city council voted 3-2 on new measures aimed at gun dealers. under the measures, gun shops cannot be located within 150 feet of homes. 500 feet from a public park or adult entertainment site or within 1,000 feet from a school or daycare center. gun dealers would be required to submit to fingerprinting and background checks. >> we want to make sure these
are people who have safe, responsible records and can handle responsibility of dealing with firearms and ammunition without a threat to public safety. >> right now, there are four gun shops in pleasant hill. they will be exempt from the distance requirements. however, employees they still have to submit to background checks. the polls open in sunnyvale at 7:00 a.m. one of the items on the ballot is a controversial new gun safety ordinance. if approved, measure c would require gun owners to notify police within 48 hours if their gun is lost or stolen. guns would also have to be stored in a lock box or disabled with a trigger lock when not in use. and finally, measure c would track ammunition sales and restrict sales of ammunition magazines. supporters say it will help prepare vent accidental deaths, shootings and suicide. but critics say it infringes on
a confidential right of gun owners. today, voters get to weigh in on a controversial condo project. the 8 washington development would sit along the embarcadero at the foot of washington street. it would have 134 luxury condos in two buildings. one of which would exceed the current height limit. opponents call it a wall and say it includes no affordable housing. there are two propositions, both on the project. a yes on either clears the way for its construction. but a no vote on both would force it to be revised. we're still a year away from electing the governor of california but today a new candidate will officially get into the race. southern california assemblyman tim donnelly will launch his campaign today in los angeles. he's supported by the tea party. he's known as a gun rights supporters. he's strongly anti-abortion and opposes same-sex marriage.
