9:55 pm
people have already sent us letters and there is a great deal of thought that have gone into some various positions as to whether or not these lines are right or not. really this process is designed for us to hear from you and factor that in. we appreciate you taking the time, carefully looking at how this will impact your neighborhood and we are here to listen and i appreciate everyone. since this is a community meeting. i will take a moment to introduce ourselves. this is not a full time job. we have day jobs. i will ask my colleagues to introduce themselves. commissioner dejesus? >> i'm petra dejesus, i have been on the commission for 6 years now. i look forward to this redistricting, we have never done this before. it's knew to all of us. they have these proposed boundaries and it's not set in stone so we are here to get your input. we are looking forward to

10:00 pm
can't have a police station station in a district that they are not policing. for immediate mandate, this talk probably won't go into effect until closer to the summer once all parties will be heard. we will be annexing the building so when it opens sometime in april and because under every circumstance, that same parcelling would be in the new southern district. that said, some of the proposals that are in play, we've had very robust meetings in the tenderloin district and the northern district. a lot of discussion and good crowd like tonight. the tenderloin district would come across market street and down to mission street, but not take mission street. so the streets that run north and south currently
