$60 to the municipal transportation agency consisting of 3 million two total gem contribution and commendation with several other sources. to support planning, design and outreach for the transportation capital for the project in connection with the proposed old and state warriors event center and the mixed-use development in mission bay. the great supervisor avalos >> supervisor avalos: thank you. i was the only person who voted against the special fund for the warriors arena facilities and i do have to vote against this again. this is actually what comes down to the subsidy for the warriors arena i believe that the warriors should be paying more for the uses of funds to manage transportation and traffic impacts around the arena. so, this is to me a symbol of how places that don't have a lot of development, that don't have a lot of economic activity, lose out in how we make decisions
about where we allocate funds for facilities and transportation projects as well as housing. so, i will be voting against it. i expect that i could be on the short end of the stick, but id to stand up for what i think is a wrong way that we do our budgeting across the city where places in the city that are seen robust development tend to absorb a lot of general fund dollars that could be available for other places that are not seeing back on development. speed that you supervisor avalos. see no other names on the rochester mdm. clerk please call the roll. >> clerk: item 11, >> supervisor yee: aye >> supervisor avalos: nay >> president breed: aye >> supervisor campos: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye >> supervisor farrell: aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor peskin: aye >> supervisor tang: aye

you to consider today is about increasing public safety and accountability of public dollars. in 2014, san francisco adopted these vision zero policy, where we have committed to work toward the goal of the zero traffic deaths by 2024. we have a long ways to go. every year about 30 people lose their lives and over 200 are seriously injured by traveling on our streets. these deaths and injuries are unacceptable and preventable. vision zero is about city officials, city employees, and community members working together and committing to create safer streets. what is been brought forth for your consideration today is to extend telematics into the majority of our cities leads of more than 3000
vehicles. in the last five years, we have spent nearly $77 million in litigation and settlement directly related to our cities fleet of vehicles. as elected officials, we are charged with an expected to be accountable for a public dollars. this is why last year i directed the budget legislative analyst to produce a report and old a hearing on this report and i was cosponsored by many of you. the benefits shown on this report in terms of safety improvements, savings and environmental benefits are clear. undeniably beneficial and proven. telematics has been used as a correct trained to improve driving habits, decrease inappropriate or unauthorized use, and has shown to have environmental benefits in reducing emissions in many locations in the united states.
telematics sometimes are first added a black boxes. it is a technology that has gps along with capacities to collect information and data such as speed, hard braking or acceleration, mechanical diagnosis, could this technology is currently in early 9% of our city's fleet of vehicles. it has already proven to have increase safety by reducing the number of collisions. for example, mta conducted a pilot similar to not technology in one year reduce collisions by 50%. i want to thank the advocates who have the support of this legislation, including lot sf but by coalition the and vision zero coalition. i would also like to thank my staff, erika mae born, we saw this legislation through. now, what
i'd like to mention here is that we are not including law enforcement officers at this point because there was some details to be worked out and i didn't want to start this process anymore for the rest of the fleets, but rest assured, i will be working with the-our city administrator google come up with airport in the next few months so we can move forward to include the law enforcement officers in this particular item. to follow legislation should it's critical we work towards our vision zero goals by changing our culture to smart and proven policies and to our language and how we speak about our goals. so, this is the reason i am making a motion for two minor amendment. you have a copy of that and that will be better aligned.
these basically are minor language amendments, better align with our vision zero goals. so, on page 1 line 24, to reduce all traffic fatalities, and on page 2, line 13, the word accident, which may not be avoidable, is changed to collisions. so when i talk about accidents could talk about collisions, which we can work to address and reduce. so, colleagues, i hope you will all the joining me to support this. >> president breed: supervisor trini has made a motion. second? second by supervisor peskin. can we take that amendment without objection? without objection the amendment passes unanimously >>[gavel] >> president breed: supervisor kim became i would have my name as co-sponsor and think norman yee for his office and his work.
to put this into implementation get when we attended the vision zero conference in new york, over a year and half ago, this vehicle traffic and system was viewed as were the key and critical components to ensuring vision zero by city owned and city driven vehicles of which about many here in san francisco. so i'm glad to see that we are moving this forward and i want to thank supervisor yee for his work. >> president breed: thank you. colleagues, can we take this item same house, same call as amended? without objection, this ordinance passes unanimously as amended on the first reading >>[gavel] >> president breed: item 29, please >> clerk: item 29, corridor look amend the medicine go to our appraisals and appraisals with you for sincerity city jurisdiction transfers acquisitions conveyances on lease of real property required appraisals conform to the uniform standard professional appraisal practices and be prepared by qualified appraisers and to increase the rent limits the director
properties existing authority to enter into leases for the city. >> president breed: colleagues can we take this item same house, same call-supervisor peskin >> supervisor peskin: first of all, i would like to thank my staff we have heard, as well as the head of our department of real estate, john update, for working on this matter for the last several months. the legislation before you is really an update to chapter 23 of the administrative code that will standardize how the city acquires and conveys real property as well as how we deal with leases. this is modeled in many ways after state and federal law, and will ensure that the city gets at least 100% of the appraiser market value when it sells or leases land. it also provides for third-party appraisal review of appraisers of certain threshold
about you could i also think our enterprise departments further engagement on this legislation. as we all know the enterprise components which include the mta, the airport, and public utilities commission have some discretion to conduct a real property transactions on their own outside of the purview of our department of real estate. this legislation provides standard procedures for leases that enterprise the parties enter into without interfering with the core functions of these enterprise departments under the city charter. to that end, i have some brief amendment based on our conversations with court staff which you can find on page 8 of the subject legislation did i previously distributed copies to all of you specifically at page 8, line 7-10, we would like to amend to add the following language quote, unless the executive director of the port determines the real property under cold that the rental rate for the proposal lease meets or
exceeds port commissions annually adopted parameter rental rate for such real property, at line 14, on the same page, remove the language, executive director of the port determines applying the market rent requirement would conflict with the port commissions annually adopted parameter rental rate for the proposed leases. that was dealt with in the previous amendment. finally, on line 12 of the same page, add a the language, the board of supervisors on high-resolution lesser a proper public purpose or three, and skip two line 16, commission or agency determines with director of property concurrence that an independent appropriately qualified real estate economic expert is better suited than appraiser to perform the rental analysis. if there's any
questions, the representatives of the ports one hand with regard to those amendment. if not i like to move those amendment and adopt the legislation as amended on its first reading >> president breed: just for clarity supervisor peskin, you don't have those amendment for distribution? >> supervisor peskin: yes they didn't previously distributed to your offices and i've asked her copies. >> president breed: okay. supervisor peskin has made a motion to amend? second by supervisor peskin. colleagues, can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. the amendment passes >>[gavel] >> president breed: i just had a point of clarification, question, supervisor peskin. i apologize but i did not get a chance to talk to you about this before. but we in my district have a situation with a property that's under the former successor agency the redevelopment, which is appraised property but there's a high expectation of significant community benefits. that will be attached to this
property. we are required under state law to dispose of the assets. yet, there is going to be a challenge to hold any property or future property owner accountable to providing a significant level of community benefits without attaching that somehow to a price negotiation and i want to understand how this legislation could impact a project of that nature. >> supervisor peskin: so, first of all, we have counsel here but i do not believe that our chapter 23 provisions apply to ocii, the successor agency and the indeed invoke an appraisal statute under state law as you previously referenced. but relative to an appraisal process, the value of
the property is what a knowledgeable buyer would pay a knowledgeable seller based on comparable sales of similar property. if those community benefits were to be deducted from that value you'd have to-derby and appraisal problem and somebody would have to assess the value of those community benefits which presumably would be a deduction from the praise for market value. >> president breed: okay. so if that happens, in the case of the successor agency which definitely has its own process, that happens for example in the case of the city is closing of any assets in the same capacity we are talking about making sure there's clear-there is a clear match to the appraised value though that the city ultimately doesn't lose any money? >> supervisor peskin: corrected ultimately it's a function of how the city through its department of real estate instructs an appraiser. for instance, in the case of what actually started this whole ball rolling 30 van nuys, if the city is demanding that the property include 20% of for
the housing on-site, that is what a appraiser would have to about you wait in conducting that fair market value appraisal. >> president breed: grades. that clarifies it. thank you so much. colleagues, seeing no names on the roster, for item number 29, as amended, can we take this item same house, same call? without objection to the ordinance passes unanimously on the first reading as amended >>[gavel] >> president breed: item 30, please speak up item 30 resolution to a seat and approved and/or ports for the central market committee benefit district for calendar year 2014. >> president breed: colleagues, can we take this item same house, same call? can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. >>[gavel] >> president breed: item 31 >> clerk: item 30 1a ward asked to amend the planning code to offer greater fax ability in the screening and enclosure of rooftop mechanical equipment modifying the block
alley controls and their collectibility to the south of market neighborhood commercial transit district fulsome street neighborhood commercial transit district, and the regional commercial district and see-three district to affirm the planning department's ceqa determination and make people but findings >> president breed: same house, same call? can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. >>[gavel] >> president breed: item 32 >> clerk: item 32 a resolution to clear the intention of the board of supervisors to order the vacation of a portion of jesse street and a portion of alum aly northwestern of mission and for street in connection with the ocean white center project at 51st st. subject to certain conditions and set a hearing date for all persons interested in the proposed vacation of said street areas. the breed supervisor >> supervisor cohen: thank you good i do for item number 32. this a technical amendment. colleagues at the request of our clerk i want proposed amendment to this particular items are we for both the resolution and the companion ordinance of the may 23 land-use committee. at that hearing, we do not amend the resolution to include the date for the committee as a whole
hearing for the proposed street vacation. i like to move we amend this item to include this that the date, which is july 19 . the clerk has circulated copies to you >> president breed: okay. supervisor >> supervisor cohen: has made a motion to amend. is there a second? second. can we take the amendment can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. >>[gavel] >> president breed: supervisor peskin >> supervisor peskin: colleagues, i just rise to let everybody know why i am dissenting in this vote and that is because i think it is terrible planning policy to abandon our streets and alleys. i think we probably all learned that in the 1950s when jane
jacobs wrote about the life and death of great american cities and so i will be dissenting on item 32. >> president breed: thanks. mdm. clerk please call the roll >> clerk: supervisor trainee >> supervisor yee: aye >> supervisor avalos: aye >> president breed: aye >> supervisor campos: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye >> supervisor farrell: aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor peskin: nay >> supervisor tang: aye >> supervisor wiener: aye >> president breed: the resolution is adopted >>[gavel] >> president breed: please call adam 33 and 36 together >> clerk: item 33 is a motion to confirm the controllers appointment of james boyce to the local homeless correlating board term ending the 21st 20 good i'm 34 appointing joseph mcglade to the assessment appeals board number three term ending september 4, 2017. item 35 is a motion to reappoint

with a new version of it that will cover other issues that include bus rapid transit as well as jurisdictional issues between city college and the balboa park station area. >> president breed: supervisor avalos has made a motion to table. moved and seconded. colleagues can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. the motion to table passes unanimously >>[gavel] >> president breed: we are now at our 2:30 pm on additions. today, we have one accommodation from supervisor from district 1, supervisor eric mar >> supervisor mar: thank you. i am honored today and i think supervisor campos for joining me as well, well been the chairperson of the-tribe rosemary-who is here good i want to first also say she is a credible scholar and a great granddaughter of--who is baptized at mission san jose in 1864. i won't go into her whole

colleagues, we will return to our regular agenda and move two committee reports. >> clerk: item 42 considered by the government audit and oversight committee at regular meeting on thursday, june 2 and was forwarded to the board as a committee reports and recommended as amended with the same title. it's an ordinance too many ministry of code to revise the residential unit conversion ordinance to acquire hosting platforms to verify the residential unit is on the city registry prior to the listing to acquire hosting platforms to respond to notices and requests for information, to provide for civil administrative and criminal penalties against hosting platforms for violations of the residential units conversion ordinance and to affirm the planning department determination. >> president breed: supervisor weiner you have a amendment supervisor supervisor
>> supervisor farrell: i like to ask to be recused >>[reading code] supervisor farrell like to be excused. is there a motion? moved and seconded. colleagues, get this can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. you are excused supervisor farrell >>[gavel] >> president breed: supervisor weiner i'm sorry. supervisor campos >> supervisor campos: thank you good ideas only appropriate given mr. nature that today i'm wearing i lay as i'm talking about this piece of legislation, which has been long come on time coming. i want to thank my cosponsor supervisor peskin. i want to thank a very broad coalition that includes a very diverse group of people who normally are not on the same side of this type of an issue. but, how we got here is after a long fight, including a pretty, i
think, difficult fight at the ballot, but we decided to do and think about how to address the problems that clearly remain on this issue is to present as we have presented a pretty modest and a pretty simple proposal that essentially, try to preserve san francisco's housing. this legislation in a very simple way, mandates and that what web platforms that engage in short-term rentals reports, not hinder, the enforcement of our short-term rental object again, as a repeatedly have said, it's not about changing the current law. it is simply about enforcing that law. that is what supervisor peskin and i have put forward. also want to thank supervisor mar supervisor avalos for the cosponsorship. this proposal mandates that hosting platforms like airbnb
their firehose has registered with the city before advertising their short-term rental on its website. if a hosting platform fails to do so , the platform itself will be penalized for up to $1000 a day . while the current law has set rules for hosts stipulating that all closeness register with the city, more than 75% of airbnb 7000, plus in san francisco have in fact not registered. in fact come up we have only received 1800 applications to open since the launch of the program and that's essentially 26% of the 7000 airbnb hosts we know. short-term rentals that have been issued are 1300 24 or 18.9% of the 7000 host with airbnb to last year's budget analysis report found that airbnb alone has taken up to 2000 entire units of housing,
2000, completely off the market. this is why we need to bring the hosting platforms into compliance. the one thing from our perspective that has been missing in the existing airbnb short-term rental law is corporate accountability. the weakness of the law is that corporate accountability is essentially nonexistent. it's not surprising, given that corporations that ultimately controls a large part of the market is the one that actually broke the law as we know it. i have met with many home shares, and let me say, once again, as we have repeatedly said supervisor peskin and i throughout this process we support capital host, mom and pop hosts, will not be impacted in any way because of this law.
we are simply focusing the law and enforcement on the corporations. i want to address a couple of misconceptions about the legislation. some have claimed that the legislation would force platforms to police short-term rentals. that could not be further from the truth. if your rental car agency and you have to make sure the person that you rent that vehicle to actually has a license before you run them a car. that's exactly what we are asking the short-term rental platforms to do here. second, on a huge support of internet freedom and we were carefully not only with the city attorney, but also with online advocacy groups to make sure that this legislation passes legal muster. again, i want to thank the broad range of people who have formed this
coalition. again, microsoft or supervisor peskin and his chief of staff sunny and glue, the tenants union, local two, juju, tenants together, san francisco apartment association, senior disability action, share better, housing rights committee, and many many more. also want to thank the city attorney especially rob koppel [sp?] for the phenomenal work they've done and i especially want to highlight the incredible work over the years on this issue from carol guzman in my office and i don't know if carol is in the room, but we would not be able to be here today without carolyn. with that, before i turn it over to colleagues and your other comments, i do have a final point to make and is by way of a question. if i made through the chair, i would like to ask a question if i may to the city attorney. mr. deputy is sen. john another people gibner a
number people have been raising concerns about the committee's indecency at. can you explain how we have addressed that issue and how you feel about the legality of what were putting before this body today? >> city attorney: deputy city attorney john gibner. first of all, as we do any time members of the public right litigation to challenge any ordinance proposal for the board, we've advise you confidentially regarding legal issues, but generally, following your direction, we drafted this ordinance in order to avoid the medication decency act issue that is been raised publicly that you mentioned. essentially, the ordinance does not regulate the content that hosts post on the website, the
listing platforms should rather, the ordinance merely regulates business activity of those platforms that engage in hosting services. >> supervisor avalos: thank you mr. gibner and thank you to the city attorney for the amazing work it with that i respectfully ask for your support. we believe this a pretty modest piece of legislation and this is one of those things where we should not be fighting about this and my hope is we have as much support on this board as possible. thank you >> president breed: thank you supervisor campos. supervisor weiner >> supervisor wiener: all be supporting this legislation today. as i've said many times, we need improved enforcement and i think this, although i know there are potentially some legal issues here, it is a step in the direction of more enforcement did i do want to just note a couple things and one thing in particular. i do not agree with the i think
sometimes that characterize agent we hear that no one is registering. the fact is, and we heard this as you know colleagues, i hold quarterly oversight hearing on short-term rental enforcement at the land use and transportation committee. what we saw in the last presentation from the opposite of short-term rental is that we are seeing an acceleration of registrations. last year, unfortunately, was a partially lost year because given that basically immediately after we adopted the legislation at issue, it was announced that was a failure within like 3-4 weeks. and proposition fc thereafter was proposed. not surprisingly, a lot of posts decided they were not going to run ahead and register when they would not even know what the rules were going to be. once proposition f was defeated by the voters and since then we've seen an acceleration and the number of hose registering. there has
been a steady increase and it has been a significant increase compared to what was before. when you have this many hosts it's not going to happen overnight but were moving in a positive direction with that said, improved enforcement is a good thing to enforce the law. i do have a amendment which i've shared with supervisor peskin and supervisor campos which is distributed. when is a technical amendment on page 4, line 8, adding the words, providing reservation and payment services for a listing of. this is recommended by the city attorney a technical amendment. a amendment i'm also offering directs the office of short-term rentals to both promulgate wools and regulations be simplified and streamlined the host registration process, and also within 45 days of the effective date of the legislation to report back to the board of supervisors with
recommendations about how the registration process can be improved, expanded, streamlined, made simpler, made more user-friendly. the process right now is quite cumbersome for many hosts could especially, when you talk about those that are only engaging short-term rentals for say a few days of the year or a week or two a year. it's a process to go through for not doing very much short-term renting. so, in order to get those numbers off and to keep that momentum we need to make the process more streamlined, less cumbersome, and so, the legislation, the amendment on proposing would direct the opposite short-term rentals to come back to us and to say or tell us what regulations they've issued to try to improve the process and if we need to do eight legislation, to make it a more streamlined process to recommend to us how to proceed and so that is the
minutes i make and that is my motion. >> president breed: thank you supervisor weiner has made a motion to amend and the medics have been circulated. they then seconded by supervisor campos. colleagues, can we take the amendment can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. >>[gavel] >> president breed: seeing no other names on the roster, i'm clerk please call the roll on the item >> clerk: on item 42 as amended >> supervisor yee: aye >> supervisor avalos: aye >> president breed: aye >> supervisor campos: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor peskin: aye >> supervisor tang: aye

children's playground built by our master developer in mission bay and due to several different hurdles and agency bureaucracy, we've not been able to open this part. i do want to knowledge many residents who've seen this playground and been incredibly frustrated by seeing a resource they can use, given the growing population here in this mission bay and the which we expect that 15,000 new residents by 2017. many of whom are young couples and families. you can see this when you go to the mission bay library branch. the afternoon storytime is packed with young children with their families and this part is an additional resource that holds us ensure we are building complete neighborhoods on behalf of our communities. i do want to recognize and thank ocii. i see mark-who's been working closely with our office to expedite this process did we can open this playground in the summertime and ensure that this resources available to the
public. we will be working very closely with our multiple agency to see what we can do to expedite this process for future conveyances of parks and streets as we continue to build out this new neighborhood. colleagues, ask for your support >> president breed: thank you. i'm clerk please call the roll >> clerk: item 43 speedy aye >> supervisor avalos: aye >> president breed: aye >> supervisor campos: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye opposed? aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor peskin: aye >> supervisor tang: aye >> supervisor wiener: aye >> president breed: the item passes unanimously on the first reading >>[gavel] >> president breed: was go to local introductions. >> clerk: supervisor >> supervisor yee: your first to introduce new business >> supervisor yee: submit >> clerk: supervisor avalos >> supervisor avalos: thank you. today i'm submitting a carbon tax could pay tax on nonrenewable energy that will
be used to support the expansion of seeing san francisco urban forest. this tax would also help to incentivize or make an incentive for people to move to our clean power sf program. so it's a very timely that in that way. over the years, the city has relinquished its responsibility over maintaining street trees. i believe that is an act that has disproportionately affected working-class communities where single family homes are predominant and many people in my district struggle for pain that so this tax is also linked by an effort to take carbon out of the atmosphere by creating disincentives for people to receive their electricity from nonrenewable sources, as well as to incentivize the trees
that will help pull carbon out of the atmosphere. the way that this carbon tax would work, the controller would generate about $80 million a year and there are exemptions. anyone who receives at least $.50 to 2% of their electricity from a new will sources, clean power sf customers would be exempt from this tax. this tax would continue the broad exemption for low income customers better in the current utility users tax and that would include all tier 1 customers would continue their exemption, which would represent 40% of residential customers in san francisco. care customers, as well, would it be exempt, the ones that receive a family electric rate assistance. they would be exempt. currently, commercial customers pay 7.5% of a tax on
both electrical and natural gas them a while residents residential customers pay no tax. so, this would actually increase from that 7.5% among 2.5% more to an overall 10% increase. based on the average residential pg&e bill in san francisco being $108 for electrical and natural gas use, this tax will be an additional $2.70 a month all coming from the natural gas side, which is, of course a nonrenewable. the rest, all colleagues i will sum it >> clerk: thank you supervisor avalos good president breed >> president breed: think. this is an exciting time of the year because there's only great things happening all over the city and especially in my
district and i want to take this opportunity to highlight just a few. tonight, from five-7 pm sf jazz and proxy will be hosting their second annual neighborhood block party at patricia's green. in hayes valley on acadia and hays, which also kicks off the 34th annual sf jazz festival. there'll be live music, movies, shown on a big screen, the beer garden is always really popular and food trucks. so stop i hayes valley tonight. on saturday, june 11, there's a grill in the model, which is hosted by adrian williams of the village project. it's a great event. it happens every single year. it said hamilton playground. it's a fun, exciting event. there's food, activities for kids, and there's music did a lot of great blues performers will be present. so, stop by between the hours of noon and 5 pm on saturday. finally, on sunday, there will be the 39th annual

dresser without, the colorful hats. sure my me a lot of my grandmother when i was c john burris pictures of his mom she'd always have a beautiful hats on. she had a cat for every occasion matching gloves, purse and shoes. persaud was beautiful just as beautiful as her outfits in her motto was, if i can be helpful i will. she was very helpful to so many. for many years, she operated the summer side home and marengo residential facility for those who are physically handicapped or develop mentally disabled. she treated the clients as her children and instructed all employees to do the same. she also participated in a number of nonprofit organizations, including the national council for negro women whose mission is to advance the opportunities and quality of life for african-american women and families. she was a member of

speed >> supervisor farrell: submit >> clerk: supervisor mar >> supervisor mar: today on election day him and recent charter ballot measure for the november out to expand democracy in san francisco for tens of thousands of immigrant parents by allowing noncitizens the right to vote in school board elections. i want to thank especially some momentum and david chiu of michael's father supervisor campos and avalos cohen weiner and others. i also want to say it's been a 20 year struggle for voting rights for immigrant communities. our coalition of parents and immigrant organizations spans all of our neighborhoods of our city and now is the time the weekend in san francisco pass a measure like this. i also want to say
that san francisco would not be alone. chicago, new york city, and a number of jurisdictions throughout this country have allowed noncitizens the right to vote but for most of the united states of america, history, noncitizens have been allowed to vote. it's only in the nt immigrant movements of the 1920s the repression of that era that was wiped away and now is the time for san francisco grassroots networks of immigrant communities, parents, and others that want expanded democracy to step forward to put san francisco on the map to making it free again. i also want to say too, are immigrant parents and immigrant committee organizations are ready from their own networks from past elections to the specter of donald trump in the immigrant rhetoric at the national level san francisco could stick step four to expand rights for immigrants while others are attacking immigrants. also, i want to thank leaders from our immigrant rights commission by cathy cole and others for dancing this over the years.
matt gonzalez and-to others over the years but especially our grassroots coalition, giving a voice to parents and expanding democracy is the right thing to do in san francisco. it also will help improve our school system by engaging more immigrant parents into the process of their children's education. lastly, i will say expanding democracy is right for san francisco and immigrants deserve the right to vote in school board elections. also, i like to be referred after supervisor peskin talk about the done right the rest i'll submit >> clerk: thank you. supervisor peskin >> supervisor peskin: taking mdm. clerk. colleagues, i actually spoke to the legislation that supervisor mar just referenced last week so i will not speak about it again, but today i will speak to legislation that we are introducing, which will ban candidate control general-purpose committees in the city and county of san
francisco. the general-purpose committees have been used to raise unlimited funds for unspecified measures, usually over a number of election cycles, and in essence, stylish uncontrolled funds for candidates were elected ficers who control them. unlike candidate controlled ballot measure committees, which are stylish to support or oppose a specific proposition or initiative ordinance, general-purpose committees do not need to specify with the money being raised is going to be spent on. as a result, as far as i can tell, the primary incentive to donate to these committees is to create a special relationship between the donor and the elected official which is a recipe for undue influence if not legal corruption. not only that, these committees allow candidates and elected officers to circumvent the campaign contribution limits that exist in their own candidate races. on this election day, we have a duty as elected officers and
has occasional candidates to periodically turn the lens inward and scrutinize our own practices, and in doing so to work to reduce the influence of money in our political system. it doesn't take much introspection to realize the obvious. the amount of money flowing in and out of our political ecosystem here in san francisco is seemingly without limit. to the extent that the sources of these funds are increasingly consolidated among a small handful of the ordinarily wealthy special interest, the voices of everyday state's san franciscans and residents are being drowned out by an ocean of money. i want to thank the friends of ethics for the research and investigation of candidate control general purpose committees and also bob stern, otherwise known as the godfather of campaign finance reform in the state of california is eloquent presentations on this issue, and i want to thank at the city attorney andrew chen, for
drafting this measure in adding candidate control is a proactive step in the right direction and i look forward to continuing this conversation and garnering your support over the coming weeks and months. the rest i will submit. i do want to adjourn today's meeting in the memory of the gene rattner [sp?] and mike and condolences to her husband, lee rattner and to her two children. >> clerk: thank you. before we get to you supervisor cannot understand supervisor 10 m you'll be cementing. thank you. supervisor mar >> supervisor mar: i want to thank supervisor peskin for his comments last week on density done right. as an effort to move forward san francisco's protection assault businesses and residents will also producing more portable housing and housing for our city. i want to acknowledge that was approved by the mayor's office last year to support his version of a density bonus for the westside and other
neighborhoods but it became apparent to me by my review of the legislation that had not been thoroughly vetted, special decimal si communities by no supervisor tang has engaged or neighborhood and it seemed to me it did not do enough to fully promote truly affordable housing and protect the afford housing stock in the city. i want to note, huge advocate building more affordable housing and housing in general but i don't think any development should come at the cost of the rampant convictions of our residents and loss of our small business sectors as well. so, in the past few months i am my office and others in the richmond district work to ensure that a richmond district residents and all of our residents had a chance to at least engage on the mayor's proposal but supervisor tang's proposal, and i think to further the fruit of our labors to that effort from supervisor peskin affordable housing groups and tenant rights organizations in my office. as a progressive i'm not against building more housing kit in
fact, it is critical for our whole region, but am actively leading to create more and to preserve more housing for the majority of san franciscans. this legislation and with the proposed increase to our inclusionary housing requirements of today's ballot, will once again respond to our city's most critical need in the regions need as well. i think the density done right ordinance much is about ensuring that we are prioritizing housing developers are low income and middle income residents, is it also about ensuring the community has some real meaningful input and access into the planning process as well. so, this is been a long process for our city force san francisco. i think density done right is the right thing to do and it helps us work together with committee leaders in every district and hopefully consolidate the planning commissions awful
recommendations or so i really thank supervisor peskin and the housing justice and affordable housing groups are putting their work in many of the small business organizations working on this as well. i urge support as it moves forward to the sport. the rest i will submit. >> clerk: thank you. supervisor kim us to be referred >> supervisor kim: thank you. i don't have notes on this, but i did want to submit an in memoriam on behalf of our office to marry jessop is one of our district 6 tenderloin residents. mary is someone who has been incredibly active in our neighborhood in our community and we just learned of her passing away. i want to semi-condolences to her neighbors, friends, her family. she is someone who always had a smile on her face. attended many of our meetings for-part healthy corner stores, pedestrian safety, good she was one of those women who was active and care to the very last day. she was one of the volunteers of sunday streets, and i know sunday streets have also sent their condolences to her as well. she was an active
member and advocate for her-. she came out of their breast cancer program and she had fought cancer and beat cancer. she spent her life actually teaching in the public schools before she retired and volunteered her time during a tremendous amount of work in our neighborhoods. she will be missed tremendously. most of all, she was just one of the sweetest and kindest people that i knew and her heart was incredibly genuine. so, mary, we will miss you immensely good rest in peace. thank you for all your work and advocacy for your care for your neighbors and constituents. here in the tenderloin neighborhood and the rest i submit >> clerk: data. better president that includes the introduction of new business >> clerk: speak, present. >> president breed: thank you that can you please read public comments. supervisor weiner >> supervisor wiener: there's a 3 pm special order that was continued >> president breed: i apologize good we can go back to-is that for your item?

president breed and all the members of the cobol. my name is christopher doll and i still live at six and howard 10 bucks less than 40 m from sea level. i rise to renew a comment of mine of gender 1220 to get quote them i like to drop the board's attention of article 3 of our beloved charter specifically to the second sentence of section 3.1001 where it says, and i quote, the mayor shall devote his or her entire time and attention to the duties of the office and shall not give any time or attention to any other occupation or business activity. i would definitely categorize the campaign for governor or any office other than the secretary as mayor of our beloved city and county as other occupation or business activity. why is the board merely applying the mayor to
his security detail cause when the board could and should be demanding that he return all salary and benefits and expenses paid to in between his official announcement candidacy for governor and a withdrawal. he suddenly felt each and every one of those days to apply his entire time and attention to the duties of the office and anything less than his entire time and attention is his entire failure to serve. he should also be great salary and benefits and expenses for each day he failed when asked to categorically denied that he would be a candidate for governor. he should rebate salary and benefits and expenses reached a of his expected service when he was so disengaged from contact with our beloved city and county that there was no officially designated acting mayor. i would also ask the board to rebate salary and benefits and expenses for themselves and for their staff for each day of debate on this matter either in committee or full board when no member raise the issue of a possible conflict with the charter. i'd like to thank every member for customizing
the theme of manager class negligence. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: hello. kristi long committee plan policy director four-. thank you for the opportunity to come today. i want to speak to item 49 which is the proposed resolution before you urge our state legislators to oppose the proposed by right housing bill budget traveler. we urge you to support the governor's proposal. this is a statewide bill and it will have statewide benefits. the san francisco residents would also benefit from it. while san francisco does a very good job finding and proving subset is affordable housing as many other problems with this planning process which together contributes to a situation of chronic delay, high costs and under supply of housing. this reform is important for number recent. important for the environment incurred high-density compact
development, transit and urban areas rather than in greenfield location get it will encourage mixed income in places that will local inclusionary housing. some encouraging concentrated development and locations that are conducive to walking biking and taking transit. this form is important for retaining diverse. italy to reduce this placement and greater affordability and our city both directly on our planning process and indirectly through its impact on housing supply and other bay area cities. under the governor's proposal san francisco. great control over land use. wsdl be with to develop our own zoning but the zoning matter will be predictable transparent rules that govern the development is that of an unpredictable system will be ritually reject projects. to be clear, it was to be significant process
public input and decision-making by elected officials. the process will simply take place at the level of the general plan. plan and zoning rather that the individual project level. we urge you to support rather than oppose the trail bill on streamlining for the housing approvals and want to expand housing opportunities for san francisco bay area and california residents. intended with finding a permanent affordable housing the overall supplies by the solution. thank you >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: good afternoon board of supervisors. i am talking about item 49 as well. san francisco has contributed to over 7000 permanent legal for the low and moderate income housing units and over 13,000 above moderate income units 11,000 units in the pipeline. fully entitled an additional 20,000 years waiting for approval. san francisco is being lumped in with a bunch of december cities were not creating such numbers of housing which the state bill is supposed to address. yet it dismisses the work by city leaders in our state representatives [inaudible]. by
the governors will preempt the will this board for decisions regarding the local inclusionary housing requirement including having performance standards applicable to san francisco. by right housing approval budget trailer bill should be amended or opposed to allow the state to respect and preserve local authority. san francisco is such a special place, we value your decision. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: good afternoon. i am actually here to the board of supervisors for not supporting the trailer bill and i'm also here to thank you for supporting the charter amendment to put some restrictions on the mta board. for some time now, they have been having a war on the citizens of the city, and our visitors, by making it difficult for people to get around, to live their lives without rate stress. now, i
think it really gone too far by removing bus seats off of buses with it was bad enough there to take away bus stops to make people with heavy packages and children and other kinds of situations have to walk distances to get on the bus but now they also want you to be able to stand on the bus. i'm speaking from experience. i actually felt on moving bus on time and about the injured myself, so i can tell you i will not be on standing on any buses were parked cars or trains of any kind. i think it really a dangerous situation. i hope that this board of supervisors will reconsider having any more buses removed off of-seats removed off of buses. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: i'm going to have if you page powerpoint. greetings supervise. my name is-

san bruno lines and chairman. he gave us the cup for the special award last sunday. so within two months and a few muzzling the same band was treated completely different. you wonder why good what's happening to san francisco? is san francisco a city that's will by the commonest party? apparently, no. is event known for bias and discrimination? apparently, no. why is san francisco so different from san bruno? a city just 12 miles away. the reason that chinese government through san francisco chinese general counselors and [inaudible] influenced their behavior. to the point of abandoning the bow use that this nation was built upon bringing shame and disgrace to this great city. i wish you would look into this issue and help us resolve the
undeserved rejection. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: good afternoon supervisor. my name is--in a citizen in san francisco. i'm here to express my [inaudible] marching band was rejected on the cherry bloom festival. we already got permission from the organizer, but read dressed up and showed up, but at the last moment, we were told we were rejected. that doesn't make sense. i serve the country in 2014. our nation is to fight for the freedom of the world. that is my freedom to parade was [inaudible] to my freedom to parade was deprived of that moment in the country which i serve. i believe the discrimination is not fit.
pursuing freedom of belief is the great country of the united states. pursuing freedom is the reason why this great country, the united states of america is [inaudible] that's also the reason why i came to america from china. i want freedom without discrimination. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: i will speak for her. dear honorable board of supervisors. my name is--a san francisco resin. i'm a pianist and plate saxophone in the-marching band. you might think our group was excluded
from the gym found cherry blossom festival grand parade, but why do you keep coming back to the board of supervisors meeting. why don't you go to the parade organizer, hashimoto? first, the japan town parade is excluded us the much again due to the [inaudible] the southwest chinese new year parade. the chinese [inaudible] is usually influenced san francisco and the root of the problem goes beyond mr. hashimoto. second, does the gym and found parade and southwest airlines chinese new year parade [inaudible] this public money came from tech including us the
marching band who live in san francisco so we have a right to raise our issue here. certainly, the most important the issue is much bigger than the parade. the essence of this exclusion of fundamental value of america. it's about what this country is and is not. it's about the name and image of the san francisco. think about it after a few years what we came to know the brutal prosecution by the chinese communist party. to find out
several meeting people were thrown into jail in labor camps and many died a persecution. to know that over 60,000 and possibly a lot more people were killed for their-the [inaudible] against their will. at that time, they would also come to know that san francisco was once a [inaudible] of the chinese communist party intentionally or unintentionally. how will you face this part of history? they zero children? face their own children. the issue of excluding us from the parade goes far beyond the parade itself. it relates to how we think about our morals of this country and of the city. we are looking forward to your attention and help. thank you so much. >> clerk: thank you very much. next speaker, please.
>> testifier: good afternoon. tim: gather 300 member organization and individuals of the san francisco housing action coalition would want access our strong support for gov. brown's proposal for by right housing into the density bonus streamlining we would hope the board of supervisors would support the governor's efforts on our behalf. i want to draw your attention to a remarkable letter that came out last week from a consortium of statewide affordable housing and social justice groups. it took a remarkable position of saying, we support the governor's efforts, but as with certain amendments. the amendment a pretty common subject is nothing currently difficult about them. i would imagine that's a very constructive approach to city the taken this. the plain truth, the housing affordability and displacement crises keep getting worse year after year because we lack the tools at the local level to make a difference. we badly
need the states help if we want to different future for san francisco. as governor, and the legislative analyst office recently noted, we do not have the resources to subsidize our way out of our housing predicament and until we figure out new approaches to dramatically increase housing production it does not seem likely that the displacement of logan come an increasingly middle income folks can be slowed much less stopped. and, opposing were trying to get san francisco exempted from this raises some difficult questions because if san francisco succeeds in exempted itself from the governor's proposal, many other committees across the state make similar requests. i think there's a fallback position we all agree on is, we do want more funding from the state for affordable housing and we don't have enough. the federal government is getting out of it. the state has inadequate resource. that's a good as to make to the governor, but nothing we are
doing at the local level scales to the enormity of the challenge we are facing. i would hope that you would support the governor's position. thank you. >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. >> testifier: good evening, supervisors. particularly by sisters in the back there. my name is ace i am on the case. i'm speaking from the heart and hope you hear me through your years. so many of years i'm putting the city on notice. specifically, our african-american black sisters that know about the outmigration. knowing that it's institutionalized through the then mayor newsom now lieut. gov. newsom. it was transferred then out mayor ed lee they did not do a damn thing to people who look like me. how? it wasn't in the budget. it wasn't in the budget. that was the problem that ed lee that's what they told human rights. the only problem that newsom administrative because he was
59 dollars in the red. but now we are $5 billion in the green and you ain't got nothing for the people that look like me? [inaudible] there's a reason for sisters, legislators, who resent shakers, policymakers, listen to what i've got to say because once i go put something in writing, it's going to stop everything. sisters, in the back, come on up. how can you how could you dare be sitting up here, i been in politics that when you all were little girls. but now you women, your policymakers, you should be proud-i'm proud of you but there's something missing. legislation that prepare
something for youngsters. these other legislators are putting things together. that's what you all do. make history. let me talk to you. because the mayor doesn't care. ed lee he knows maybe we work together >> clerk: thank you mr. washington. next speaker, please. mr. washington, just for next time you appear please direct your remarks to the board as a whole, not to individual supervisors, please. >> president breed: i heard every word. thank you. >>[background speaking] >> clerk: next speaker, please. >> testifier: tom gilbert. before november's election in 2015 talk about how i was disappointed in the leadership of the democratic party and as
mr. ace said, he did nothing, the mayor did nothing for his people. he did very little for anybody when he was living in the city. corporate giveaways, real estate, profiteering, airbnb,. the right shares. you got your money, you got to have a super bowl. oddly, that's our last super bowl party. let's bury that one. then, he was running unopposed supposedly, we had a combined moment and maybe that's paying dividends because i saw in the all the printed political mail, there's an alternative slate, choice is better. the first game of the basketball finals, i was watching at my mother's house. franklin and chestnut. [after the game and the embarcadero station, riding the underground, i met a guy that came from the basketball game
and he was writing on busted with got there sooner they kind of took a richmond train instead of suing her to wait a little bit longer. i don't understand why we are changing three lines of part in every way for two lanes, four lanes of service street. it's still ridiculous. transportation and density, at this part does not make sense. voting today, independence. one third, at least, left and the right, and they're carrying the crowds are carrying bernie and the establishment is carrying hillary. >> clerk: mr. gilbert c [inaudible] >> testifier: my time is gone to what happened there? >> clerk: thank you. next speaker, please. any other speakers who are interested in making public comment? seeing

to urge the san francisco legislative delegation to mentor posed by right housing approval proposed trailer bill in recognition of san francisco's local planning tools and significant contributions to regional housing development. >> president breed: supervisor weiner >> us for this item to be pulled? >> supervisor wiener: i'm happy to defer to the author. okay. thank you mdm. pres. so, i'm distributing a amendment of the whole here. i wish i previously did provide earlier today to supervisor peskin. so, colleagues, what your view on the trailer bill that gov. brown has proposed, i think it's a good thing that our governor has begun to call the question in terms of housing in california. we are truly in a crisis, not just here in san
francisco, but throughout much of the bay area and two more and more parts of california. we are housing is exorbitantly expensive and where particularly camargo income and middle class residents are being priced out and often, squeeze out of their communities. it's unsustainable and inequitable. it's a threat to our economy and it's a threat to our environment as people are forced to move further and further away from their community and from where they work. so, this is a statewide issue. it is an issue that the state legislature and governor should be taking up and again, whatever one's view on this bill, it is good we are finally seeing a push in this case by the governor, we know there's also bills from various numbers of the legislature to address other aspects of the statewide housing prices and that is a good thing. i have-the trailer legislation, the trailer bill, as of right by right housing, it's not perfect and there are parts of
that particular bill that i don't agree with. from i read, it makes it too easy to pin it loses of demolition controls and the last thing we need is to make it easier to demolish housing particularly rent-controlled housing in san francisco. it does not allow nearly enough latitude in terms of reviewing design, architecture, urban design in general good in making sure we are getting high-quality well-designed development with good street skating. it also i think potentially could short-circuit some environmental and labor standards that are very important. however, the heart of this legislation, i think, is really about the number of units allowed under the zoning. we see far too often, i'm talking throughout the state,
situations where the zoning allows for a particular number of units and through the approval process and through community opposition, that number of units are pushed down. so i project his own 450 units, but they're only allowed to build 20 units. when that happens over and over again, as it does, we have less housing. we, at the heart of our housing crisis, is that we have grown tremendously good san francisco has grown by 200,000 people since 1980. the bay area, i believe, has grown by 2.5 million people since 1980. we have not created enough housing to keep up and the result is an explosion of housing prices. that is at the heart of the problem. this problem is not going to go away. the bay area is projected to grow by 2
million people an additional 2 million people, between now and 24. san francisco is projected to break 1 million people by 2040. this problem is not going away, and we have to get it together in terms of housing production. affordable subsidized low market rate housing forces a crucial part of the solution. we need a legislature to help us in other communities to fund affordable housing. but that is not the total solution. in addition, we have to have more housing of all types overall. we are never ever going to solve this problem or come close to solving this problem, without a robust mix of housing creation, including subsidized low market housing but including also other forms of housing as well. the problem i have with blanket opposition to the bill is that it does not take into account the need for more housing overall. the problem i have with the provision in the current
resolution before us that asked for an exemption of any jurisdiction by if i read it correctly, where at least 25% of our overall housing production is below market rate, affordable to low income or moderate income, the problem with that is that it doesn't set any standards for what the overall housing production is. so, 25% of a small number of units might be a high percentage , but that's still a small number of units and are housing prices then continues to get worse and worse and worse. so, i don't agree also with the whereas clauses. in the resolution before us, which really frankly, i think paints and in accurate picture of where we are in san francisco. san francisco is not doing well when it comes to house. san francisco, frankly is doing poorly when it comes to housing and the proof is in the pudding
with the average rent being $3500 a month. in the last couple of years, we have accelerated housing production, and that is after many many many years of largely very very low housing production. so, it's great that for a couple of years now we've been doing better. that needs to continue, let's not pretend like were doing awesome in san francisco. so we need to be exempted from any state effort to try to improve housing policy in california. so, the amendment recognize and the whereas clauses of the gravity of the situation in terms of our housing crisis that is threatening the very fabric of our community, not just in san francisco, but elsewhere. instead of opposing the legislation or asking for an exemption from the legislation, the revised language that i'll distribute, instead, commends
the governor for stepping up to call into question but also recognizes there are flaws in this legislation and asks our state delegation to work to amend the legislation to focus it on making sure that communities are not arbitrarily reducing the number of units allowed under the zoning while keeping fully intact other areas where we want to make sure that local control is robust, including relating to urban design standards and architectural standards, regarding affordability and the affordability percentage, relating to the preservation of historic buildings, relating to the preservation of rent-controlled housing stock, to make sure this legislation does not in any way make it easier to demolish our housing stock in terms of labor controls, labor standards
including prevailing wage, and our mental standards including conformity with senate bill 375. so, i think this legislation were this resolution the medics i am proposing, will focus our efforts and instead of opposing brascan san francisco to be exempted, it will focus us on what really needs to happen at the state level which is to stop the reduction in the housing that's produced as opposed to these other issues, which should be amended out of the bill. so colleagues, have distributed this amendment i move that we adopt this amendment of the whole. >> president breed: supervisor weiner has been a motion to amend. second by supervisor farrell. supervisor peskin >> supervisor peskin:
turnover and replacement but disagree with that number as a matter of fact. i do understand what you are saying-what supervisor wiener is say with regards >> student the percentage number but look at the numbers in the state of california. not just as a function of percentage, but as a function of total development of units that are very low, low and all affordable units. 7 year period in loss angeles, total all affordable 7957 units between 2006 and 2013 compared to san francisco-by the way they built 46, 7640 total units. compare that with san francisco, we built 7064 all affordable units on a total of 20, 455 during that time. those are just raw numbers mpt we have led the state. i absolutely
agree with my colleague supervisor wiener there is so much more we can and should do but somebody actually has to stand up and say that the governors solution is not the right solution for san francisco county. it disadvantages san francisco county and that is precisely why senator leno is pushing perfornlance based exceptions in the trailing bill in sacramento. colleagues, i think this resolution is fine exactly the way it sits. we have used our existing tools and those tools by the way will be augmented tonight after-the polls close when a certain proposition passes, but we have been using the tools that we have to get increased amounts of affordable housing chblt that is actually what the conditional
use process affords us. by right disadvantages the city and county of san francisco. the good newicize there isn't much policy difference in the body thmpt case supervisor wiener spoke to where a property can have 30 units but the city inicists should only have 12 rsh that doesn't happen. we are all of the same policy mind. while it is true we had a global recession between 2008 and 2012, the work that the board that i served on previously did authorized the increase more dense development of 22 percent the city, everything that you is say, octaivia boulevard, rincon hill, supervisor kim's district, hunter point is rolling out. is there a lot more we have to do? absolutely, but i don't believe the trailing bill is the right way to go and respectfully hope we can
pass this resolution as is. >> thank you supervisor peskin. supervisor tang >> thank you for had comments made and i would say that first of all, there are portions of the governors trailing bill that i agree with and there are things i do not agree with so understand the reaction that is sparked and why supervisor peskins resolution is brought forth. i would like to associate myself with supervisor wieners comments and think what he is proposing is something that is fair. instead of asking for a whole sale exemption for san francisco which every other jurisdiction will ask for as well, we like to say governors office we would like amendments to adapt so we are not feeding complete local control over planning decisions in san francisco. i just don't understand what would set apart san
francisco from other jurisdictions that the governors office would allow only san francisco to have exemption from his proposal and so again, i think that what is probably better for us to do as a united front from san francisco is to say there are certain things we locally like to preserve. for example, allowing the local jurisdiction tooz have the ability to make decisions about good design, making sure that we are having policies in place that prevent us from demolishing rent controlled units, historic preservation issue squz making sure we keep a eye on that and limit demolitions and making sure we are pay attention ocertain virmtal studies and standards that we want to promote in san francisco. i think those are fair thing tooz ask for what we want for local control while not saying let's just exempt san francisco completely. one thing supervisor peskin mentioned
is there are jurisdictions throughout california where the proposal from the governor where it st. good to have this in place. i wouldteric it further and say that maybe we feel that san francisco a a whole is doing better than other jurisdictions, there are neighborhoods within and districts within san francisco that could be doing better. i think the west side for example is one of them. we talk a lot about density equity and that is something i would like to promote as much as possible while preserving our neighborhood characteristics. again, i think i agree with supervisor peskin that the governors proposal is a one size that does not fit all, i do think that what for visor wiener's amendments have brought forth are very fair and allow to continue work wg the governors office on future amendment tooz allow to retain some sort of local control over certain issues so support the amendment today mpt . >> thank you supervisor tang.
supervisor peskin i had a question for you regarding your resolution. realistically do you think especially when san francisco under state center mark leno when he tried to propose specific reforms around the ellis act for san francisco they unfortunately failed. realistically do you think there is a real chance that san francisco through this urging could receive a exemption? >> i do. >> can you explain why you think that is the case? >> because our legislative delegation is uniquely positions in sacramento by vuchue of the fact that state center leno is the chair of the appropriation committee and this traity legislation is part the entire
appropriation negotiation in sack ramento is subject of discussion in conference last thursday night where senator leno make clear his position is phil ting is the chair of budget on the asumbly side san francisco is uniquely positioned. >> thank you. supervisor peskin you had your name on the roster den? >> i just wanted to rise to remind everybody and i think this is worth noting that we are all in receipt of a letter dated yesterday from the san francisco labor counsel which is something i think we should take very seriously. yes, we received letters from the labor counsel periodically, this letter is written to express their strong opposition to development by right proposal of governor
brown's administration and think it is important because when the labor counsel does that, that is all of labor speaking. that is the building trade speaking, that is municipal employees speaking, that is the health care workers speaking and the hotels workers speaking. i think that is very very important. i also want to remind people there is not a single local housing organization that supports the trailing legislation. these are housing organizations that are dovoted to making sure that we build the maximum feasible amount of affordable housing san francisco can build whether it st. bmr or subsidized housing or public housing. not a single organization is supporting the trailing legislation and then i want to ring a note for democracy and transparency with which is unlike any other bill that is heard by this body or
heard by the legislature. this has not been the subject of public haerbings in sacramento. this isn't the subject of deliberations, this is at the very end the session and scheduled to be voted on in the next few days. i have just spoken with supervisor wiener and i think we have come up with a judicious compromise for all of you which is that, this item be continued one week. that will give supervisor wiener the opportunity to move his companion resolution forward and perhaps in the intervening week with a sufficient time we can marry those together and come up with something a consensus piece where we have boleth in front of us next tuesday. >> so, supervisor peskin, is that a motion? >> not yet. >> okay. supervisor wiener. >> thank you very much madam
president and i appreciate the comments supervisor peskin. i want to note that we have-we did see a letter from a coalition of state wide affordable housing organizations and antipoverty organizations indicating that are willing to support the trailer bill with certain amendments. so, i think that our state wide affordable housing organizations rather than having a automatic oppose, or exempt have indicated they want to work to come up with a solution so want to say that for the record. and yes, supervisor peskin is correct. he and i had a discussion and what we agreed to rather asking this go to committee, instead supervisor peskin will continue one week. i will then introduce my
amendments as a stand alone alternative resolution for next weeks agenda and supervisor peskin what i requested as part of my agreement not to send his resolution to committee was an agreement not to both resolutions will receive a up or down vote. is that correct? >> yes. >> okay, so is there a motion on the table? >> motion to continue item 49 one week. >> supervirez peskin made a motion to continue one week to june 14, 2016. seconded by supervisor cohen. colleagues can we take this without objection? the item is continued to the meeting of tuesday june 14, 2016. madam clerk.
>> will you read the in memoriams. j todays meeting is adjourned in memory of the following beloved individuals. on behalf of supervisor kim for the late mrs. marry jesp on behalf of supervisor peskin sfr the late mrs. rogene ragner and on behalf of president breed for the late mrs. ammo gene [inaudible] >> thank you. madam clerk this bring tooz the end of-supervisor cohen is also a part of that in memoriam. for ema gene. that bring tooz theened of our agenda. any other items before us today? >> that concludes the business for today >> okay, good luck everybody today. looking forward to the election results after 8 o'clock. don't forget to vote. we are adjourned.

embraced the technologies of clean energy we have a fossil fuel free in washington state ways we increased the solar 100 percent last year reduced the the cost of solar and it is because of that initiative economic strategy we have a robust economy at the same time reducing the treat eve climate change i'm glad to be here the ecology ruled out a rule this is a wall of protection against cash pollution for the first time a rule will be implement in our state that creates a cash pollution coming from major e minorities and joined other states to streamlining those with all the things including the renewable portfolio and centers for solar and energy

get away from the climatic change you're about 15 years two lastly zero doer debate about ocean cervix this cashier needs to be not going into the ocean doing damage to the waters i hole pristine i'm excited and they've to british columbia taking care of our state >> thank you govern as a representative i'm really happy to see the progress as a region it has been a great year for climatic for britain columbia not only this renewed relationship but seeing the federal government that is not taking a keen interest for a jurisdiction from canada that began this work in 2008, we're excited to have there federal papering it means right now our predicament minister is leading
a protest that works towards a can canada was launched with the vancouver dilation and a lot of things we're doing in british columbia will be rfblt of what you see at a canadian approach but it goes hand in hand with what you see in front of the you it is extremely difficult to go it alone when our a natural jurisdiction like british columbia with 4 million people it is not hard to get leakage it is one of the reasons to be working together we have right now a cash tax that is one of the highest and broadcasted in the world did bank timing called that one, the most powerful example of pricing we also are the first and still the only
jurisdiction in north america to, cashier neutral for the last 5 years our energy supply is 98 percent clean and the g h g emissions are amongst the lowest in canada it is not a lot of easy places to look for continued emissions reduction it makes those partnerships all the more important and i want to reinforced to you what's been express this and have to be a choices between the assignment and the economy in fact, we look at the potential results the climatic change we can clearly say our economic future as world that indeed as a region is depend on action to reduce the implications of climatic change i'll give you some example from our economy in british columbia we internal revenue by the way, the faster growing economy in canada we're
the only province in canada to balance the budget we're the only province with a triple a's credit rating with a great economy wife seen 68 thousand jobs a 12 percent increase since years and the g dp rose in the realm to $6 billion plus in 2014 and that's a 18 want 3 increase from 2010 our economies don't think our actions to combat climatic change we welcomes partnerships not only because of success bus the opportunities it give us we know that for the future of our planet and the much of our children and grandchildren we can't be the generation this drops the ball we have to pick up the baton and
need everyone's ideas together is the only way to successfully tackle this. >> govern. >> thank you. this is indeed another milestone in 2013, the pacific coast collaborative started it was relatively small and very embryonic in its sense here we are joined by key cities in the bay area and making that commitment to reduce carbon dioxide and other green house gas emissions this is a serious threat it is a major issue and on the west coast we remember taking action serious action now around the country there are states and political leaders that have their head in the sand and someone running for president that calls us and this
meeting should be stopped immediately because everyone would be crazy but that's not say way it is and the other thing he should be stopped and should be stopped soon i've indicated yesterday (laughter) anyway, i am encouraged i try tee set the difficulty of dealing with climatic change when you read this commitment we're making there's a lot of provisions and a lot of words this is not just one thing stop this no? integrated it is comprehensive and requires governs and congress people and entrepreneurs and utility executives and mobilizing all the swath of civilization and your leadership on the west coast ultimately the united
states and the rest of the world we're here in a initiative part of word most of the leaders come here and want to get part of that innovation and tremendous economic identify wisdom and we're to make a commitment for climatic change that is more and more visual in the national dialogue not enough for my sense but this what we're doing here advances the ball and how far we've come to 2013 indicates the seriousness of what we're doing and when we do this again in another year or two we're making advance and not just elected people that is this morning bill gates asia tom a serious financial players and they're here joining with anyone stares
of energy from the different parts of world now with paris because of president obama and wanting she we really made a real step up ♪ effort which was not true just a couple years ago so this is important it is only another step but an important step and more and more people are following we are all collaborating organizing low cashier full standards washington is look at it as a overall cap on emissions and, of course, the cashier pricing in british columbia is recognized by the world back that's the way to go there's a lot of progress and a long way to go but each step is very important essential toe getting the ultimate goal the decashed world. >> thank you govern and i'm honored and exciting to be in
the company of really great leaders that are coming together to be here to bear witness on this historic collaboration on our climatic change i'm proud to add that the city of san francisco to this agreement along with so many other west coast mayors and our city's on the front line of climatic change and becoming more clear that we can't fully address this alone we need leadership and we are seeing that happen before our eyes and desires me to be part of this work of the pacific coast collaborative the reality the impact of climatic change knows no state or city or national boundary line satisfies and daughters and wildfires are going to continue to wreak havoc
