3:34 pm
leasing last hearing and had the ability to look at it on line and prepared to take action. >> i believe there's a request to make a statement. >> good afternoon, commissioners we were just informed today that the public health department has made a question on the developer and granted a permit through the change of ownership we request that item 15 the discretionary review on ocean avenue be continued to the commission can include and consider supervisor yee's legislation on the developer clustering the supervisor is not against the applicant but we're incentive to the clustering of the cannabis dispensaries on motioning
3:35 pm
mission avenue. >> commissioner sugaya i wish the city attorney were here i have a procedural question maybe staff know the answer. since this is pending as has been pending for awhile even if supervisor yee's legislation going into effect if we delay it again, this time the ordinance passes does that apply to our action or not? in other words, would we have to apply the 5 hundred i think it's the 5 hundred rule >> if we continue it to a future date the new legislation is in effect we would have to - >> that's the governing protective at that point. >> we'll have to follow the
3:36 pm
law. >> i have to follow the law at the time. >> thank you. commissioner borden >> so right now it's at the mandatory discretionary review but the applicant has to file a new application it's a different process now. >> so there's no cu on file. >> if we continue it will they have to file a new cu and they wouldn't be heard that date anyway. >> the department will have to take it in and review it as a conditional use. >> so continuing it basically is definite for all intents and purposes so they'll have to file a new application. >> i believe that's right it requires a 20 day notification
3:37 pm
period as well. if the new legislation requires this facility to be a conditional use there's a new applications that needs to be made >> commissioner hillis. >> just another question procedural the public health department has made a ruling, you know, and agreed to for the change of ownership is it appealable. >> yes. to the board of appeals and from the ryan health inspector the respondent plans on appealing the decision saw that's also pending, you know, so i support a continuance for both of us clustering is an issue regardless of the cu process is in place or not i
3:38 pm
don't know if we can make that motion i move to continue. >> i would recommend you continue it to the date. >> what day. >> on the 13. >> jonas is looking. >> i recommend to july 7th. >> and that's enough for the appeal and decision. >> i'm sorry when don't the new legislation take fiscal there june 13th to by the time if he continue it to july 17th. >> not if it's not in
3:39 pm
existence. >> i'll second that. >> commissioner sugaya. >> i was going to say it changes previously the perimeters of our decision that's no longer exiled vs. necessary and desirable so it's a little different consideration to give to the impractical the same issue. >> commissioner borden this whole thing is difficult i feel like we're exercising a preference and not trying to experience a preference it's a strange situation we're being put in we don't center a basis on or about clustering we're put in the middle of discussions if there is no only one which one is the right one we want to have the public health department to kind of make the decision and
3:40 pm
i'm not clear if the proving because they looked at some of the ways the actors were involved with the facilities and so i really don't like the situation that we're put in because i feel like they're the people that make the determination based on the history and ours is the youth clustering issue that may or may not strike to those other things you're talking about. so i feel a little bit frustrated by that situation but it's created a situation where, you know, dissension and fighting within the community that shouldn't have to happen i don't have an answer but that's a frustration i expressed at the last hearing >> commissioner moore. >> i will share the sentiments
3:41 pm
we were also part of the formulating policy of finding new and forward-looking rules for mcd locations and this is now coming up it's a difficult situation. >> commissioners there's a motion and second on the floor to continue the matter to july 17th, however, i recommend public comment. >> open this up for public comment. >> and this is going to be comment only on the matter of continuance. >> i'm gregory the sponsor i'm the permit holder of waterfall. and the reason why i went to the new locations to be compliant with stay and state law waterfall is not within one thousand foot of a school that's
3:42 pm
why we decided to move and caused the conflict in - i'm sorry you are either for or against the continues >> i'm book and i'm waterway fatal and moving up the street. >> good evening. i'm georgia robert opposite the continues the applicant didn't agree to the continuance has been continued over a year and he's followed all the rules and paid rent and there is no proper grounds for continuance at this point. had the board of supervisors wanted to stop ail projects in the pipeline they could have
3:43 pm
adapted an ordinance to opposes the interim zoning rules but choose not to. when this hearing took place angle over 3 weeks ago at that time contrary to the city attorney the matter was continued so that a lay which is not in effective could come into effect and delay the project we see no valid basis for doing so your obligation as decision makers make that hard for you and they've done everything moved this forward and tonight is the time it might be uncomfortable but to not delay fundamentally unfair and have a room full of people that have
3:44 pm
been waiting for hours to be heard they came last time and that's not easy to wait for hours and come down here only to have it continued because you are in an uncomfortable pougs but that's not the applicants fault we ask you deny the motion and here decide it >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> commissioners and ladies and gentlemen, thank you for allowing me to imempathetic tell me i'm against it. in an arena like many other areas ever life there are good and bad guys the applicant greg shep is the benchmarks for more
3:45 pm
than a good guy this is in the pipeline for many years i've been here since 2 o'clock i understand your concerns, however, the clustering alluded to say not law today. and i'm not familiar with other kinds of situations where decisions and adjudicators are made on a possible law that may or may not happen. so i iceberg you in all fairness to hear this issue today with today's laws. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> whoever is ready. >> i'm robert the long term
3:46 pm
resident in the ocean area i agree with continuing this matter because as it stands the new mcd will be at the third mcd and ocean avenue with the existing mcd waterfall wellness and the decision was made we don't know the outcome of this appeal with waterfall wellness telling you but this commission itself passed the anti clustering law ordinance i believe april 1st. and then things take time it had to go to the board of supervisors and takes thirty days to go into effect but the previous speaker said it may or may not go into effect it will go into effect on june 13th
3:47 pm
>> sir this is the continuance. >> and vote for the continuance and the other point i know you've been here since 2 o'clock too but i walked up and down the stairs i several times but once you make the decision we at ocean avenue would be stuck with two forever so the four hours doesn't compare to that. >> it's difficult but speak to the continuance only and not the project. >> i'll try to speak to the continuance i oppose it i think in all fairness this project has been in the works for over a year and there's special considerations and the ruling from dpw today is lapd on policy levels that we can speak to
3:48 pm
later but i urge you to toouths the merits of this project as well as the clustering today and moved today on its good merits. >> hello commission. gregory and christen have's an pa a class above any other dispensary in my opinion they've proven themselves to the city as being responsible and met all the qualification of the discretionary review. to pass a continuance is effectively to deny the discretionary review and force them into a different process. you have to enforce the law as it is today you can't enforce the law it might be exist many the future it's a miscarriages
3:49 pm
of justice a denial of a petition it will be harming the city and people of the city and harming perfectly innocent people that have followed the procedures there's no basis for the continuance thank you very much. >> hi commissioners i'm picking up u paul i strongly oppose the continuance it has to do with the ways the law is today and also the reason this new dispensary book is being moved up it's more sxhient with the federal and state law within a thousand feet when the feds come in and closings down the dispensaries and closed them
3:50 pm

3:52 pm
the legislation and they've worked hard and deserve the legislation i'm for the continuance. >> hi i'm steven cramer crane i'm an activist i live in district 6 they've closed the dispensaries in my district because of the law. now the owner who has sported me, i'm terminating i will i'm a sick person why am a i standing here why do you wait until the end of the day it's wrong and now you're talking about someone who is a bad player they're the public health department t is giving him a permit its way
