can change how they interact with law enforcement in our city so they feel they too have the ability to call law enforcement when someone is violating them in anyway. i appreciate the leadership and i look forward to moving forward and i wanted to stop in and offer my support. thank you. >> thank you supervisor breed. supervisor avalos do want to add anything? >> thank you for coming in supervisor breed and being a co-sponsor. it's going to take all eight holding on and remain inparticular and maintain due process for everyone. we want to make sure everyone will have the same fair judicial treatment and we can have a separation between the local criminal justice system and federal immigration enforcement system and that's what this legislation is truly funded on. i want to
10:31 am
thank everyone out here today. i want to thank especially the people that provided testimony of their own personal experiences dealing with law enforcement and the threat of s-com threat over our heads. it is significant. it makes it very significant the courage that you leave your house everyday knowing that the system is in place and i want to say thank you for your leadership here today and in general. i also want to thank the faith groups that spoke today and labor groups, our local 87 and seiu and the lgbt community and many community groups who were here today as well. this legislation is a significant step in how we can make sure it's a great example of san francisco for the rest of the country and exercising our
10:32 am
local control over this program. public safety is funded on public trust and when we know people are able to pick up the phone and call the police and not a threat of deportation for anyone in the community. we shouldn't think of deportation as a public safety tool and that was clear and no carve outs to affect that statement and i will ask for my colleagues comments as well but i hope we can move this forward with a unanimous vote. >> thank you supervisor. supervisor mar did you want to add anything? >> i wanted to thank my colleagues for immigration rights and empowering our communities and also the strong grass-roots coalition and not immigrant organizations and domestic violence rights and lgbt community for being here.
10:33 am
you have built a tremendous coalition that ensures we have a super majority and hopefully a unanimous decision at the board of supervisors without any carve outs. i also want to say i hope san francisco gets the status of the strongest sairnt area city and i know we look to santa clara and chicago but we should be in the leadership of that. as my role as a decision maker i think the police chief was clear on his statements but the human stories by fatima, the woman who was arrested from the night club and dragged away from her children and sonia who was assaulted and others who gave me human stories give me a human side of the issue, and not just the legal side and i am grateful for their courage and the
10:34 am
community organizations of bringing the victims of draconian measures like s-com out and have solidity with immigrant communities. i want to add with labor, and lgbt and constitutional rights and other organizations standing up for this as the civil right issue of today hopefully this is a key message in san francisco that we will have due process for all and reestablish ourselves as sanctuary city as well. >> thank you. supervisor avalos. >> thank you. one person i want to thank is santiago letterman and interning in my office and instrumental with meetings with other elected officials to put this together and did leg work to bring this ordinance forward and thank you. >> thank you supervisor. the last thing i want to say is
10:35 am
thank the speakers who shared their personal stories. it was very moving to hear that and i know it wasn't easy to share that so it meant a lot to me and all of us to hear that. [speaking spanish] the last thing i will note on the issue of carve outs the way to deal with an issue the way you think an individual should be detained you fix the criminal law to deal with that. the thing about due process it either applies to all or it doesn't apply at all. there are no carve outs in the bill of rights. that's the point of having a bill of rights so on that note can we have a motion
10:36 am
to move this forward. >> so moved. >> so we have a motion by supervisor mar. if we can take that without objection. >> supervisor. >> yes. >> actually we have a number of technical amendments so thank you mr. gibner for keeping us on task here. >> my apologies. forgot to bring the technical amendment of the whole and basically adds a few words here and there to make sure we're talking about civil detainers and immigration detainer and there is language from the district attorney's office that he asked and i hope he was here to offer support and didn't do so but i think it's important to add the language added by the district attorney. i will read it into the record if i can find it right away.
10:37 am
so the language is "the intent of this chapter is address request for non mandatory civil immigration detainers. nothing should be construed matters other than those related to federal immigration detainers and in all other respects. local law enforcement agencies can collaborate with federal authorities for public safety and not limited to participation and joint criminal investigations period" that is the amendment i am bringing forward for this technical amendment. >> thank you supervisor avalos. if we could have a motion to accept the amendments of the whole and amend the ordinance outlined by supervisor avalos. we have a motion by supervisor mar. we can take that motion without objection. now on the ord nandz as amended we have a motion by supervisor mar. if we could take that without objection. without objection
10:38 am
this goes forward with the unanimous approval of the committee to the full board. thank you very much. mr. clerk do we have any further business before the committee? >> that concludes the business of the committee. >> thank you the meeting is concluded. thank you all for coming out

10:43 am
and two water storage tanks and a rainwater storage tank for reuse of rainwater. there's a petroleum station located under the sidewalk at 8:30 jackson street. those are the facilities that are identified in the encroachment permit >> great. thank you i don't have any questions. we can go to public comment. i have a cough of technical comments. i'll record this into the record. there are a couple of references inform the public utilities commission on items 8 and 9 it is to be determined by the public utility commission and

some language should be strictly and on page 3 line 6 there's a refers to the san francisco water department it should be for the public works commission. so those are technical amendments i'll move when we go to public comment. >> great is there any public comment on to me number 1? seeing none, public comment is closed. i'll forward this to those the board >> so first could we move the technical amendments. >> yes. >> and i'll move this for the full board tomorrow. >> item 2 is an ordinance for the use of self-prethat he would to permits the projects to the

city of san francisco. >> supervisor kim is the leg legislator and they want this to be turned to the call of the chair for rehe scheduling at a later time. >> i'm happy to support given that supervisor customs not here it's solicited an interesting conversations. over the last twoou hours i've heard that the industry is trying to found a better way to muffler the sounds out of their planes. okay. is there any public comment on item number 2. i have two cards.
10:46 am
before we take public comment i neglected to mention that supervisor kim was unable to be here can

10:48 am
continuing to having difficulties getting a response we're happy to have our d c america to contact them. and i'll be happy to certify in any way possible. thanks again for carrying this legislation >> thank you. any additional public comments? >> good afternoon supervisors i'm steven. i'm a concerned citizen of san francisco county. i've lived here for 55 years and i'm disturbed about what happens over the park. a couple of saturdays ago we had 3 banners from papers above us so this is corporate sky graffiti. and we're very concerned about
10:49 am
the impact of tourism too. this city is progressive but when it has an impact of its beans flying over the city we're concerned about the air and noise and visual pollution. what's the impact upon our bird population let alone the human population. i'm in support of the baen and the elimination of all banners flying over san francisco county. this is getting a little bit ridiculous. the americans are taking 35 bits of advertising and if we can't look at the beautiful of the golden gate bridge we're not a
10:50 am
beautiful city. i thank you for taking my testimony and i hope that san francisco has a better tomorrow >> thank you very much. >> next speaker >> david elliott lewis. i'm against the prohibition i see it as a prohibition cabins free speech. while a lot of the speak might be commercial it gives an opportunity for groups to get their message out. not everybody follows twitter or facebook. i think getting a message out even 55 the unconventional ways i think it's a diversity we tolerate in our city.
10:51 am
i hope this won't move forward. and i hope you won't ban this informational splie >> any additional public comment on to me 2. seeing none, public comment is closed. i am supportive of supporting this to those the to the call of the chair. and as i indicated a previous hearing i'm not a fan of aerial advisement i'm not a fan of those aerial advertisements. what i also is a and i think i indicated many of this in the past hearing i think this this legislation was rushed in the way s it was brought forward.
10:52 am
and the normal deliver way we bring it forward it was dividing the file and we're duplicating the file and to take it from a brief america's cup restriction. i spoke this morning with i don't remember the name of the come that has about half of the market share on san francisco bay they indicate no outreach has been done to them and if they're the largest player and if they're the largest i'm assuming no one to the other operators as well. if you're going to be banning an industry it make sense to have outreach of this to say if
10:53 am
there's a resolution. i'm also concerned about whether it would be legal to ban aerial advertising under the fellow law. i know this area of the law is a a bit of a mess with hawaii said they could restrict this and there's been some regulations since them but it's unclear if that case law is applicable. so to go through expensive legislation to end up what the state go i want to be careful. so a continuance to the to the call of the chair make sense in terms of allowing the author to nail down the legal guidance to
10:54 am
know what our chances are in court if the legislation is passed. so can we continue this to the to the call of the chair >> madam clerk call item 3. >> it's the planning code to have the standard i see conformity for residential uses. we have a gentleman from supervisor avalos offices. and supervisor avalos what like this continued to the call of the chair we're hoping to have the city attorney to move forward on a portion of the project. to give you a brief update. the planning staff outlines this as 3 parts of the legislation. the main part is section 33 of the criteria considered when
10:55 am
considering merges of residential units. it's our tennis to bring this more 40 in line with having an option to have affordable housing. we're hoping to move forward on this. another part of the legislation section 181 deals with legally inconsistent non-residential units. there is some question on how those relate to the second unions. those are not traditionally in-law units their traditionally built before the zoning of the city and it's on a parcel that's zoned for two unit. we want to have legal protection
10:56 am
for those units. at the planning commission they asked for additional time to look at this so we want to introduce new legislation and thill reconsider this on september 19th. we've hoping to move forward on the criteria in september on a separate track to get our minds around this in the legislation. with that i'll leave it >> thank you very much so to continue to the call of the chair. >> yes, that's right. and supervisor avalos will be introducing new legislation >> the plan is to introduce amendments that remove section 181 to twisted the file but we can do that tomorrow. >> should we then - will this
10:57 am
item number 3 if that's not relevant should we table it. >> we're planning to have this legislation h that will have everything but section 181 and we'll have a new option to go back to planning. >> i want item number 3 to remain alive. >> yes, sir. >> we'll annoy open this item up for public comment? >> david east i do not lewis. i don't understand the chances being property but to the extent they give more protection i've lived in the city i've never
10:58 am
seen such a high rate of evictions and above construction of condos and apartments. something is wrong in the city in terms of protecting the lower middle class and the poor. and demolitions are a part of this so if it's slowed i think we should support this >> any additional comment on item number 3. seeing none, to the call of the chair? >> so move forward. >> madam clerk any additional information for the economy. >> that is all. >> okay. so we're coeconomy.
10:59 am
>> that is all. >> okay. so we'r happy new year, everybody. i love the fact that we are doing a tournament here at the center. when i was in eighth grade i played on a basketball teechl. team. i have to admit i wasn't very good at it. i always aspired to be an nba player. regardless of playing in college or nba, i expect many of you have be leading us
11:00 am
because of the leadership skills you are learning on >> sfgtv, we are ready to begin. >> good morning. today is wednesday, september 5th, 2013. this is a special meeting of the building inspection commission, i would like to remind everyone to please turn off all
