12:09 am
renters within them so that's united states good news the bad news part of the legislation i think in my opinion is contrary to some of the parts of general plan because we should courage homeownership and tics were one of the things that people can get into objective people come together to buy a unit as a group as a tenants in common and get into the homeownership thing that's something we should support the more homeownership we have the less problem with people being displaced of someone wants to take over something they'll have to pay you for your property it should be encouraged and he it's too bad this legislation came down because now they're not going to
12:10 am
allow the confirmation e conversion of 5 or 6 tics but the version and the 10 year moratorium on the conversions of tics into the loop that's a 10 year period it maybe something in the future to courage people to pursue homeownership as possible. >> seeing nothing further moving on to 0 department matters item 7 departments announcements. >> i wanted to report last time a u l i event as part of a please state your name and address on prop m the office allocation there's confusion where prop m or 5 m and the it was a discussion commissioner richards attended last time about one hundred people in

alliance to look at this matter just because the program is a little bit bad and it effects everyone in the city and the plan is awful it calls for the elimination for the 8 trees within the park the san francisco parks and they cut trees all the time here on the this piece of paper an example of the work it happens in 2002 what happened they came to put the natural habitat and starting with i think 25 cutting them down maybe a little bit more the neighbors were upset and protest and the
12:21 am
cutting stopped and after that, the - they gave the neighbors 25 trees to planting those 25 trees went ♪ the area problem out of the 25 trees only 5 were alive in 2010 and one has grown at all and the rest 404 inches tall and they were planted so that's how this nature program conducts the business if you look at the other side there are pictures most of them done by someone in those pictures the nature creatures are code native it's ambiguous i guess - it is just
12:22 am
strange i mean what is native but those - birds and code native making their home and sitting on all this vegetation that is called invasive and they're doing fine and the natural area program actually hurts our wildlife habitat thank you very much >> thank you is there any additional public comme comment? >> commissioner moore to answer our issue about the swedish hall it's been a great neighbor they reaccident the correspond on the front of the buildings and gave us a trash area and have been great partners with us they should be breaking ground in 6
