7:25 am
that it is held here. and i created the park across the street and all that i could say is a bunch of lies saying that we need parks instead of a parking lot wha, do they think that my park right next do is to it, sorry, it is a huge park and we don't need more parks, we need affordable housing i am sure, that you all got the message keep that m mind on all of the future endeavors on the port and because we can do better. and we tried so hard to make it beautiful and all that the city functions can do is destroy it and i love the way that they put it in the newspaper that the planning department okayed it and the board of supervisors okayed it and sure, they all worked in collaboration, because they are corrupt, thank you.

7:30 am
an emphasis on pointing towards the nearby, existing monuments such as the bay bridge bier itself and so it has seeing as having as much value as the octobers themselves and houses the building for the facility across the site. and this is the recent sketch and we will go into it in some detail of how the areas are defined and the core idea remains the same that there be an emphasis between the open space and the space between things have value and a new design and this shows a large, grand lawn that we have created that leads the eye up from the south to the north from to the bay bridge pier and there are three values that we have tried to develop and refine further and all of these points are being created in our minds, and in relation to comments that we have heard both informally and formally, through various
