2:26 am
closed sessions take away the public right to know what's going on and takes away the transparency. the decision that you reached in this particular case was reached in the most public matter possible in a very large public meetings attended by dozens of people who gave testimony and broadcast on television at the same time. your deliberations and your decision was also done in the full light of day whether right or wrong or whether agreed or disagreed with it was open and transparent. i urge you not to change that now. don't move the process behind closed doors. the public will end up what's happening now and i don't believe if you look at the statutory language that this is a situation that even calls for a closed session. if that true language is very specific because of the disfavored nature of closed door meetings and the administrative code of 67.10 mirrors the state
2:27 am
government code sunshine ordinance says a closed session maybe held but when required by legal council and motion vote to open session to assert attorney-client privilege and that's when you would go into closed session regarding pending litigation. the definition of pending litigation is obviously if a proceeding has been filed in front of some tribunal. that's not the case here, or if a point has been reached in your deliberations where litigation seems, there is a significant exposure of litigation is what the statute says. i don't think that's present here. the administrative process hasn't been exhausted and there hasn't been a rehearing. what you got is a mere legal argument not on the findings
2:28 am
and incorrect legal argument and the party who made that legal argument is not here to support it or defend it. you are given a threat of litigation, there is no litigation pending and i don't think there is any significant exposure that would drive this board behind closed doors into closed session. >> thank you, any further public comment? please step forward. >> thank you. behind key, resident. i would echo mr. williams point and say that really this is no the a complex legal issue as i put on here. both the statute and the case law here are very clear. in the appellate court set out a process for determining whether or not the
2:29 am
haa applies to a project like this. your first it has to be determined that the project is in fact complies with zoning guidelines. >> excuse me for a minute. isn't this related to the issue of closed session and not the matter as agendaized? >> i think we can allow him to comment as to why he thinks we shouldn't go into closed session. >> basically this is a fair instance where the statute not applying here because you have already made a decision that the project does not comply with the residential design guidelines and you had 13 policies that you cited for that. as such you don't even follow into statutory framework. this project is
2:30 am
not protected by the haa. furthermore, one last point is that the haa only applies to housing development projects and the haa very clearly defines housing development project if it's a mixed use project as one where the non-residential uses are related to neighborhood and commercial uses. the neighborhood commercial is defined as small specialty stores. this is going tools to have a restaurant and a restaurant is not a store according to the land use guidelines. as such the project is not housing development project and not subject to the protections of thehaa. thank you. >> any other public comments on the closed session. seeing none. commissioners the next item is to whether or not
