3:40 am
diesel, but they knocked it down before any explosion could happen and did a good job. the other concern there is the run off and contained that as well and did a excellent job. >> it was a spillage and caught fire? trying to figure out how that- >> it was probably filling up i imagine but dont havet thainformation. >> that is just curiosity. the composite decking that burned, is that the plastic stuff they advertise on tv competing with redwood? >> the composit is like the tarry substance so burns a black smoke, oily smoke. >> i thought that stuff would be fire proof. >> no. everything burns mostly on the buildings. unless it is concrete. >> i dont know if this is for you or the chief, the 7 inspectors how
3:41 am
are they picked and what type of shift do they have and what ranks did they have when the fire fighters or officers go into that position? >> so, the 7 inspectors came from the rank of h 2 fire fighter. sometime s they come from h 3 fire fighter paramedic. as deputy chief gonzalez said we moved seasoned 12 inspectors overand had the opportunity to go there yesterday on oak street between broderick and deviz dareo. we modify td to set up worksites for the inspectors and came at a good time because we are pretty challenged for space down at fire headquarters and fire prevention so when those 12 inspectors moved out we were able to move the 7 new inspectors in to
3:42 am
headquarters where they will receive a lot of oversight and training so will work alt headquarters. not sure if anyone assigned a plan check. typically the fire mars al will fill where the gaps are and work a day shift, typically 4, 10 hour shifts. >> glad to see them take the job. >> we hope to by the next meeting or by the november meeting we will have additional 4 inspectors so good news. >> chief gonzalez back to your report, 4 80 folk detectors and the 1500 fire helmets a photo book. those are great and glad to see people took those p. my grandson got the helmet so that was really nice. >> i like to follow up on vise

3:44 am
will be asked for a update when we fill out the matrix work in progress. there is another civil grand jury that convened and looking at our training. we always welcome-specifically the training division and have been over to treasure island. i haven't spoken with them but welcome the civil grand jur aempt often time said they have good feedback. >> that is great if we demand we keep the training center there. we have new-could be good news. while i have the mic congrat ulations to commission rb nakajo with all the years in the fire department and starting cumofepy and leading it all these years look forward you being honored this week. congratulations to you.
3:45 am
>> thank you commissioners for your comments and that thank you chief for your report. i wanted to say that our aparns appearance before the civil grand jury went extremely well. the chair of the civil grand jury for the report on dbi and the fire department a tale of two departments began his comments by apologizing for running out of time and therefore there hadn't been interviews with you and the fire marshal, so it was good for them to acknowledge that and they said that going forward they would make sure that would not happen again. they also pointed out a number of things that were good in
3:46 am
the department and then it was supervisor peskin who had a very good idea regarding using the location maps for the city in general and that information from our two departments should go there since there was already a place for it. fire marsal decozeio could you add to that, please because i think going forward that might be a route for us. >> good morning. that is beyond my scope and have to speak with our it but the concept you are speaking of the main kench with supervisor peskin and information systems don't cross and share information so that was the main point he was trying to make and i agree with him. in his
3:47 am
opinion and felt that was our biggest challenge. >> that is what was highlighted in the grand jury report. i want to say i really appreciate the amount of time and effort that grand jurors put into writing these voluminous reports because they are like us commissioners, they are volunteers and they do this because they love the city and they want the city to improve, so i take to heart all their recommendation. thank you. chief hayes-white, could you talk a little more about the strategic planning meeting with all of the department heads? >> sure. so, the mayors office budget office specifically has been convening smaller meetings regarding strategic planning and the future of
3:48 am
various departments in the city and decided several months ago to have a retreat. basically get together for the department heads to again discuss city wide issues that effect all our departments and ways to endeavor to work more clously together. it was kicked #5u6 in the morening by mayor lee. he did have to leave but most the 60 stayed throughout the day and he came back in the afternoon for the debrief what twee discussed throughout the day. there will be follow up meetings regarding this retreat conducted on the 30th. >> were there any specifics regarding how to formulate a strategic plaj plan city wide? department heads now, they are review forms say performance and how it relates to
3:49 am
each department strategic plan. was there any discussion about specifics that each plan should have going forward, what is the possibility of having a overall strategic plan for the entire city since all these department heads have gotten together? >> so it was more subject oriented rather than detail oriented about a plan. it was more discussion about some of the top three to five vexs issues. less about the structure of a strategic plan, if you will, but more about identifying the most challenging issues and how we would go back as a city and various city departments making a difference to try and improve on how we respond to those type of issues. >> i know in your comments you
3:50 am
said homelessness was one. for instance, regarding homelessness, were there specific ideas you put forward as to how we might deal with the homeless population differently? >> there were a lot of ideas put forward and there will be-again, i dont want to speak on behalf of the mayor or mayor's office. i was a a participant and one of 60 so there will be findings and report that comes from that will be a working plan so the answer is yes, and the feedback that we had as discussion points will be formulated into a report that we'll work off of. >> okay, there is nothing specific that you would like to share with us at this time? as a participant. >> probably not at this time. >> okay, well we'll come back to that i'm sure. >> absolutely. >> thank you. i also would
3:51 am
like to keep praise upon my fellow commissioner nakajo for his forward thinking along with mrs. sandy moorey in terms of creating cumofepee. he has been with cumofemy which is a wnderful institution in japan the entire 45 yearsism he is the only executive director cumofepy had so when we anounssed his retirement late last year-no, spring time, it was may-when he announced the retirement at the annual event jaws hit the floor. he was mobbed afterwards because i couldn't get close to him to say good bye because people were gob smacked and couldn't believe he

3:58 am
of those opportunities to share experience, to learn new skills and all of that, so i am going to leave it to our chief of department to see if he has opening words and hear from chief francisco. >> thank you, president cvington. it was a successful week as i alluded to earlier and appreciate you acknowledging the fire department put a lot of working making sure the aspects were coved. chief francisco and myers did a excellent job throughout the week. i also like to personally acknowledge our newly formed employee work group san francisco fire fighters veteran association. they are auch to a wonderful starlt as you have seen them at 911 in the morning and sieving history days as part the parade. we had members of that session cooking lunch for the men and women in uniform. when they
3:59 am
comto treasure island they provided a color guard and lunch that i dont think i alluded to that i attended with chief gullm beanie was acknowledged at the iii luncheon. chief gullen beamy received the fire fighter of the year award. it is fitting that they had a role in fleet week. there was many events a number of us ateneded and think it was great you asked chief francisco provide a brief overview of and graphics which also include what commissioner nakajo asked about as recently as the saturday boat capsize. chief. >> good morning. chief francisco. put together a picture shoe for you based on the pictures i had in the short time so doesn't include everything but highlights. the fleet week was a great
4:00 am
week. great weather, probably the best fleet tweak to date. what we have done in san francisco back in 2010 we changed the focus on fleet week from a air show and parade of ships, to a defense support of civilian authorities. how the military provides humanitarian aid and food and water and supplies to a major disaster. since then it has taken off and in san francisco it is the model for the country. la is doing it and san diego and new york is trying to get on board. it started off on sunday, monday with the exercise. she attended press conference with the mayor that day and tuesday we had 26 military members riding the ambulances the entire shift. a great time to
4:01 am
exchange information to battle field medicine and street medicine and share best practice. they got great call tooz work and see recollect you see a roll over in the picksure picture so got to see good things to learn from. and then on wednesday, we went out to treasure island and trained 50 marines and 22 navy salers on u.s. operation, urban sunch and rescue. it was conducted at treasure island training facilities and like to thank chief cullen beanie and in service training staff and lieutenant [inaudible] who set up the island and had everything to go to put on a great training. in-service staff congratulation to them. northern california resh cue training is a privateantty that conducts trainling comprised of some san francisco retired fire members and
4:02 am
detailed heavy squad rescue one. local 97, 98 provided the bbq and members of the san francisco fire department veterans association cooked lurch for them. you see in the picture on the bottom left they are learning how to cut and brief concrete. this is our first rotation, we provided 3 rotations so cutting concrete is what the slide is about. in the top they are punching holes and work getting a hole in the concreelt or using a [inaudible] on a concroot saw. in the next module we learned how to move and lift heavy objects. you see a 6 thousand pound slab of concrete and learning how to lift that up and slide another under it. going back to the egyptians day when you don't have heavy equipments they put it on roleer jz raise it up and slide another slab under it and the bottom left you see a 4 thousand pound
4:03 am
concrete cube and learned to flip that over in a safe and controlled manner simulating having to move rubal during a earthquake or building clapsh. on the bottom right they are learning how to construct shores to strengthen buildings and walls and ceilings to enter the structure and conduct a search. in 2011 the navy deployed to japan and used skills they were taught at treasure island so came full circle and why the navy is buying into this and trying to get this program going in other cities as well. at the end here you see the veterans at the top poses with the mill itary members. it was a chance to inter#5ck9 with intervens to talk about transitioning out of military and into the fire service. on the top we created a competition for them. we split them up between
4:04 am
marine jz navy and enter that tube from either side and there a wall, each has one wall and have to breach the wall and who gets through it first you beat on the other wall and gets really heated. it turns out the navy won so the marines had to take it on the chin. they are eating lunch on the bottom left and big group at the end, 50 marines and 22 sailors out there. also, while that was going on we had canine exercises with the military as well. captain grose was out there and garret miller and ed martinez are out with k 9s and see them going through different props. you see the legs sticking through but made it up into the wendo. we had a lot of good press, 4 new stations coving us. they got a lot of good footage of marines
4:05 am
and navy learning how tacut and breach concrete and so fort so was a very good day lunch was great and weather perfect. the navy asked if we can do two days next year mpt they liked it so much and want their member tooz do it and marines as well. that bringz us to thursday and did interoperable fire fighting training on the csf san diego. this is about delivering a marine force into a hostile area. pretty big ship. we spent the morning learning about the fire fightsing systems and capabilities see the central coal on the left, getting a brief how they handle an alarm and identifying the space of how you do that. it is all numbers, all the numbers mean something on the navy ship so we are learning that sequence. you can see in the other pictures they lead a hose line to the navy fear, main space fire or engine
4:06 am
room fire. they are very worried about that a lot of fuel and machinery so we went in the holes and down the latters and pretendsed to put out a fire down there. just another great time both members enjoyed from the military and fire department and had engine 1 and 35, truck 4, rescue squat 1, bitalion 3 and division 3. next year i think we will build on momentum and probably do a confined space rescue. a few months ago the uss graud loupey came into town and said we are in town for a extended time for dry dock repairs and wanted to give a touro wednesday the members took a look at the ship and thursday a look at the ship and confined space hazmat. the fire fighters were familiar with
4:07 am
the laypen out and were able to pull somebody out with a rope system so worked well and think that is what we will do next year. friday fs the parade of ships and the fire boat led the way, the new fire boat 3 was outd there so everybody got to see that. it chs nice to see it working. that brings to saturday and have the k 9 hero at the park. many agencies vaurfbed, thifs bigger from last year, police department, shaifer office, chp, bart pd, u.s. marine dogs and california dog association, k 9 companion, paws for purple hearts help veterans with ptsd and custom and boarder patrol. well attended and great weather, everything couldn't have got better this year. that brings to the operations or
4:08 am
humanitarian otmarine agreen where we had a vehicles on display such as the mass casualty transport bus, the multicaelshty unit and nurt and new group, the fire department veterans association was out there. you can see there in the bottom right we are give agtour of the transport bus to marines there at the villain as well. that brings to the operations. how to protect the 150 thousand people we see each day friday, std saturday and sunday. traffic was terrible due to columbus kaday parade and fleet week. we set up a mobile command at marine agreen jz have 4 [inaudible] assigned, 3 medic unit, one amr unit and rescue boat 1 and 2 to
4:09 am
enforce the safety zone of air show box and fire boat 3 and assigned battalion chief. also is ems chief jech jef myers who oversaw the operation as we had newer captains working so provided assistance for them and see the unit working it. normally just have normal cogs during the event but we had the unthinkable happen at the end the air show, we had inboat over turned with 30 people inside or on it. 27 adult squz 3 children. there was 3 people in the cabin when the boat over pm turned. i talk to a suviver and was in the cabin and filled with water rapidly and saw the young boy and went towards the boy and pushed him out a open window along with the mother and found a pocket of air and took a breath and found his way out. cpr was

4:11 am
will go. the crew here did a outstanding job managing that incident and making work well and had the best outcome for 30 people in the water. this could have been a catastrophic insants please department marine 10 and captain worked well together. great effort by everybody there and thank you to south san francisco fire department and oakland fire department for assisting as well. with that, we had a great fleet week. hope to build on it and make it breter better next year, it was a good time and can only get better. can i take any questions? >> thank you, chief francisco. are there any members of the public that would like to comment on the report? alright, public comment is closed and i'll go to vise president cleveland. >> thank you, madam chair. no
4:12 am
questions but want to keep a praise on you. i think you did a wonderful job and we should all be proud of fleet week and participation the fire department has with the military and marines and navy. i think we are probably unique in the country in terms of our participation and cross training between our department personnel and the military and training them and we get trained as well so it is an amazing collaboration and wanted to congratulate you, heap praise on your for your leadership and i look forward to next year mpt . thank you very much. >> it take as team of people. the operation is big, but thank you. >> and commissioner nakajo. >> thank you, madam president. chief francisco i really appreciate this report and as you phrased the pictures, the visuals are
4:13 am
great. thank you president covington for bringing this to us. i think the question i asked earlier about the accident that occurred during fleet week is just simply amazing me in terms of the last slide. i was looking at how many ambulances were there both ours and private, what street they were parked at because we practice and talk about scenarios but in when it occurs it is just amazing how well the systems work. i know that we can never take it for granted but with the police department and it sounds like the citizens jumped in and so for me it is just a great scenario and glad we had this brat back with the visuals so everybody can see the contribution. i want to thank you chief and members of 98, veteran members and all
4:14 am
participant noted within this report for their participation. it makes us very proud, thank you very much chief hayes-white and chief francisco, madam president. >> thank you. commissioner hardeman. >> thank you, madam chair. chief francisco, i know you put in about two months of work in the last week and must be so glad to relax a little, but what a great cause. it unfolded the whole week and seeing as usual our military dressed up and acting so well behaved and watching the blue angles perform and others, but as a port commissioner i met many many blue angles and the closest i can describe them, they are like navy seals. they have the have the
4:15 am
most perfect physical mental condition to fly the plane jz they are such wundserful human beings it is like you-would you marry my daughter. if you have a daughter, you would love to pick them because they are like perfect people. so, that was good. i was invited to go on the fire boat, which is required to be out there during the performances and that was a real street to see how that functioned and all the other police and fire boats, there were smaller ones like the rubber rafts and coast guard, quite impressive group of people protecting our fire boat just had docked and already got off when the accident happened, otherwise we
4:16 am
were not too far from there originally but once it was over it went back. anyway, i just like to thank you. it was wonderful and 35 years now as a navy seal, diane feinstein--the fleet week and dinan feinstein is the one who instigated it and grateful and hope everybody appreciates all the wonderful people that serve our country and protecting us and the people like me let us live a spoiled brat wonderful life never in a fox hole or freezing weather and never had to be in the 120 degree weather in afghanistan or other places in the world, so very grateful. i like to compliment who put together the logistic operations and the board of directors-this must
4:17 am
have been invaluable to you as a resource, this is very good. >> starting in april we plan the thing so those are the all people we work with. >> this is very bright, smart. thank you, good job and thank you chief for having great guys like francisco who ree where he lucky to have working for city of san francisco. thank you. >> thank you, commissioner hardeman. and thank you chief francisco. i know you thought you were totally finished and thursday you got the call president covington wants a overview and i appreciate your digging deep after having extended so much energy. >> not a problem at all. >> thank you,ioknow you are that kind of guy. i think it is very important for the citizens of san francisco to know that thrt is much more to
4:18 am
fleet week than the blue angles. that these kinds of training opportunities and formation of interpersonal relationships will all go well for us when we have the earthquake we know is coming but don't know when. the more people who can chip in and help us, the better. the military is more than willing to do that you know, to help on the civilian side and that's essential because we will need all hands on deck when that earthquake like loma prieta roars through. the urban search and rescue is very essential and i happen said upon the k 9 heroes at the park
4:19 am
and that std was saturday was a glorious day and that is a dog park on a regular basis so people brought all thir their dogs out. someone is very fond of great danes because there was a cohort of great danes. little tiny kids and these huge dogs that are more like-well, anyway. everyone has seen them so they are like ponys and think a number of kids asked if they can be put on top of the great danes but the great danes were not having it. that was a wonderful demonstration of how the k 9 units work and the booths were very very informative. had a lot of intellectual presence so people had questions and wanted more information and wanted to support the
4:20 am
various k 9 units, so that was very good. and i wanted to ask you a question regarding the boat incident. i know there were 30 people and you said 11 ambulances were involved. would this have been an occasion to use our mass casualty bus? >> it was pensioned down there and could have been brought up. it is dependent on the level of severity of the patients if we need it or handle with the ambulances. >> give me further delineation between when we will use regular ambulances and when we use the mass casualty bus. >> i will differ to chief [inaudible] myer. >> jeff myer e #34rks s chief. the use the mass casualty bus is
4:21 am
the resource the 911 system could be utilized in several different formats. when you have large numberoffs non ambulatory non critical patients. so, patients that are unable to walk due to their injuries or illness, but also a mixture of green patients and the ground transport ambulances are used for the most critical vejs. any time we have mass casualty incident you have the rest of the city and it is regular 911 traffic coming into the system so you have an entire city to maintain as far as 911, but also support the incident so it is rabalance between patient squz criticality and available resources within the system what is the availability of surge unit from our private partners, etc. it is a balance. we also would use the
4:22 am
mass casualty bus in a situation where you have large working fire as a rehabilitation station but also utilized for local emergency rooms that over whelmed with patient populations from broget internal and outside event and can be rolled to the hospital and allow surge capacity for that emergency department. the personnel can come on board and have additional twnt patient capability. >> how long does it take to deploy the mass casualty bus? >> the greatest time period to get the bus is generally twnt 20 to 25 minutes. muni drivers are operating the bus for us as they have the most experience. currentsly they are housed at a major muni repair facilities, so the availability
4:23 am
of a muni driver is the only real self limiting factor. we plan to cross staff the bus with on duty personnel and back fill later, so the ability of muni to get the bus out the door to the incident and cross staff on site. >> great. well thank you. and again, thank you to everyone who worked on fwleet week and did a fabulous job. it takes so much creative thinking and energy and over a long period of time to put together such a comprehensive event especially on the safety side, so thank you very much chief francisco. >> thank you. >> item 7, agenda for next fire commission meeting on october 26, 20s
4:24 am
16. >> commissioners? >> madam chair in light of the recent allegations on sexual harassment within our department i think we need to have review of that policy and i request that we put that on the agenda and have a rather in-depth discussion about what that means. >> duly noted. commissioner nakajo. >> madam chair, i don't have any particulars for the october 26th regneural meeting, but i would like to say a few words before we adjourn and that is all i have at sthis point. >> okay, thank you. commissioner hardeman mpt >> i trust your judgment to set a good agenda. >> thank you. and madam

[meeting adjourned]
4:28 am
can good morning everybody and welcome to this beautiful day in san francisco. we're so excited to have everybody here, and i want to just say before we begin, we're just thrilled, absolutely thrilled that nancy and the mayor could be here today. and so thank you for taking time in your busy schedule to honor us at dreamforce. this is our biggest and most exciting dreamforce and we have more than 175,000 people registered to attend the event and there is more than 15 million people joining us online as well. that is incredible. almost 5 million people joined us yesterday online here at dreamforce. and as part of dreamforce, of course we have incredible advancements in technology. we have got all of these incredible programs and events. there are 2700 sessions happening, but perhaps the most important thing we do
4:29 am
at dreamforce is remind to do something for somebody else. this has been part of the core philosophy since the first day we introduced our company and 111 "pacific seasonings' gold shield brand" that is 1% of your equity, your profit and time and when we started salesforce it didn't seem like much because we didn't have any equity, profit or time, but now we have 20,000 employee and this incredible company. so we have been able to give back more than had a million-and-a-half hours of volunteerism and $130 million in grants much to the k-12 system here in san francisco and oakland. and also, we run 28,000 non-profits and ngos for our service. every year we love to dedicate and focus dreamforce to a specific cause. it's a very important part of us and we get to see all of these great causes around the world and so many people doing god's work and so thrilled to partner and unite with them
4:30 am
and we celebrate red, and ceo of red who has fought aids tirelessly throughout the world and celebrating her with this incredible red store, selling hundreds of thousands of red's products more than we expected on the dreamforce campus. tonight one of the founders of red bono is going to perform for us tonight at the cow palace. it's exciting and we're very, very excited and i want to turn it over to nancy and ed and to hear from the leaders of red as well. nancy. >> thank you very much for everything, thank you marc benioff and to salesforce and dreamforce for making the tremendous difference you are making. we have been here before whether when we tried to end hunger and you always pick up a cause of such urgency and
4:31 am
helping aids for good, for good meaning what it means in the lives of people and in the lives of country and for good, what it means in terms of our society. i have a message about marc benioff that i want to read. it was something that was said about mozart when they tried to explain how brilliant he was. and when i was reading it, it reminded me of marc. i asked how -- was mozart a genius and mathematician, marc said an ordinary genius is a fellow whom you and a would be just as good as if we only were many times better. there is no mystery about how his mind works. once we understand what genius has done, we feel certain we, too, could have done it. it's different with magicians.
4:32 am
even after we understand what they have done, it is completely dark. mozart, marc benioff is a magician. benioff's work is like a series of lightning strokes producing one uninprovable masterpiece after another and was said of mozart and can be received marc benive. the generosity of lynn and marc benioff to our schools and in so many ways and education and growing our economy in ways that is fair. they are magicians. i have only said this about one other person, and guess who that is? bono. that was a few years ago and here we are book ends of these magicians starting the morning, ending the day with two magicians, who have the magic to make such a
4:33 am
difference in our world. and part of their magic is the spell that they cast enabling other people to join in in philanthropy, in justice, in ending hiv/aids as we know it now. our city responded in a wonderful way and we'll talk about it at the theater in a little while. got to have my glasses on -- but for right now, this dreamforce that we're all here about, make us part of something very magical. that will make a tremendous, tremendous difference in the world. thank you marc benioff for being the magician that you are, and working your magic spell. >> thank you. >> thank you [ applause ] let's hear it for marc. >> thank you, nancy. >> thank you, dear.
4:34 am
now it's my pleasure and marc has 111 and salesforce. our mayor has continued the tradition of the fight against hiv/aids with his 000 and 0 deaths and 0 discrimination against those with aids. thank you, mayor lee. >> thank you, member pelsingo. peluso. pelosi. i associate myself with every remark that nancy pelosi has said. welcome to dreamforce san francisco! [ applause ]. >> this is one of the most exciting periods of the year and marc with your salesforce, welcoming in 175,000 people and i don't even feel congested. i feel great because the innovative spirit that
4:35 am
everybody has, their excitement coming together to not just talk about products and how to help each other out. but also coming together to do great things. this is what cities dream of doing is having people come to their cities, working and collaborating to do great things for each other. and i will tell you, it's not bad to receive $200 million in revenue while this conference going on during the week. [ applause ] >> yes. that is how much impact this has for our city. but you know, when people talk about the company of salesforce, it's much more than the economics. in fact, i would say the best way to describe is that we really have the true civic partnership with salesforce. the civic partnership that produces an infusion of support for all of our public schools. you know our middle schools
4:36 am
because of five years' of investment, marc, that you have made and salesforce foundation has made, the performance by all standards is way up. the highest performing urban schools in the entire state of california because of you are infusion. [ applause ] i have never seen teachers and principles talk as if they were hired for their jobs just yesterday. because they get this innovation money to really change the culture of their campuses, not only the middle schools, but all of the schools. this is what caused the civic partnership to happen. yesterday marc, i have to say watching the news at night and kind of being tired and maybe complaining to my wife about how hard things are to get things done. then you see the blue angels at the benioff hospital with the kids going through their
4:37 am
life trauma and to see the smiles with people going through the most difficult periods of their time and they are at benioff hospital and the kind of support that this hospital and the medical profession you have partnered with ucsf is an incredible story that should resonate in every city around the world. education, health care, last year the salesforce movement turned out 1 million books for our students in the entire bay area. 1 million books [ applause ] that is the kind of dna that we're creating with this civic partnership. this year, i'll say as leader pelosi has said, aids has been a complicated disease tackle. and we have spent countless hours. we have had thousands of people come in whether they are doctors, health care
4:38 am
professionals, community activists, community-based organizations, companies, or non-profits like the san francisco aids foundation doing great, terrific work. creating a community planning clinic of leadership to do all of this. and for red to now join in this marvelous opportunity with the salesforce and dreamforce, to say that they are going to contribute $1 million to this effort to end the aids epidemic, to end new cases. last year -- we're on our way by the way because of the community activism that we have had. only 330 cases -- new cases last year. we need to get to zero. we need the promise and to fulfill that promise just like marc and leader pelosi have always said, when we make a promise we're going to be able to keep it. zero new cases, zero infections and zero stigma, and with that, i want to
4:39 am
introduce our senior vp at the san francisco aids foundation, james. [ applause ] . >> thank you. thank you, mr. mayor, leader pelosi and marc, it's an honor to be here and share the stage with you. we appreciate the invitation and good morning everyone, welcome to dreamforce. i will start by telling a personal story. a few years ago i was confronted by an unexpected divorce from my partner of seven years. the news understandably knocked me to my knees and depression is normally triggered by hitting one of life's rough.s and hiv experts call this "the season of risk." it can happen to any of us. personally i got to mine thanks to san francisco's network of free services for sexual health, mental health, substance health, that were available to me on-demand
4:40 am
without shame or judgmentment, the question am i worthy of love and belonging is one of the most fundamental we confront in our work and represents a human desire to be seen and to be valued and to connect. our city's name is synonymous with the model of care that is designed to restore dignity and heal wounds that are inflicted by poverty and racism and homophobia and violence. see here in san francisco for 30 years we have believed that people who are gay, people who are trans, people who are homeless, people engaged in sex work, people who use drugs, we are all first and foremost people. and we're all worthy of love and belonging. [ applause ] and while that is certainly not unique to san francisco, it is not nearly common enough.
4:41 am
and with commitments from people like marc and leadership by the astonishing leaders to my left, and from this wonderful woman who you are about to meet, i know, i know that we'll get there. this city was ground-zero for the aids epidemic, and recently just a week or two ago, san francisco department of public health released updated numbers reporting in 2015 there were 255 new infections and let's be clear, that is 255 too many and make no mistake our hardest work is ahead of us as we work to reduce seemingly intractable health disparities and bring more people in from the margins. that means developing innovative approaches to better need our
4:42 am
transbrothers and sister and aids populations and communities of color and of people struggling to keep a roof over their head. but momentum is on our side. because that number represents tremendous progress. that number is why we can stand here flanked by extraordinary leaders and see generous commitments from people like marc, who share our determination to get to a day when san francisco becomes the very first city to end hiv transmission. [ applause ] >> thank you. and now it's my great honor to introduce my new friend deb duggan, ceo of red. [ applause ] . >> thank you. oh, my gosh, hi everybody. this is a tad overwhelming for me, as you can see. welcome, welcome to
4:43 am
dreamforce and i'm truly honored and humbled to be with this esteemed crowd. when you think of san francisco in the '80s, it's so fitting we're here now because it was the courageous city that said, you know, this is all impossible that all of these people are dying, and great leaders like you, nancy, held it up like this, when nobody wants to see it. and said this cannot be. and so this proud city rallied, and here we are 30 years later, would you have ever thought and i just have to say it nancy, that you would be here at this beautiful tech conference 170,000 people hearing about red, where we are in the fight against aids? and what you can go to help? it's just astonishing and so i thank you marc for putting on this sun spotlight and this megaphone to let people know where we are today.
4:44 am
[ applause ] ? >> so red is an organization that actually came to be to solve a problem. so the global fund which fights malaria, tuberculous and aids and countries came and gave $5 billion, but companis did not company and in the first year $5 million came from companies and bono and bobby schriber had the idea to create a brand, a brand for good, that people would look at and be able to somehow participate. but the main thing was to bring companies and get them to be involved in the fight against aids. here we are ten years later and we have given $360 million to the global fund in fight against aids, and 70 partners have come on-board. salesforce is one of those partners that lets all of this be possible. so we started talking in
4:45 am
2015, and typical fashion marc comes to the table with funds for the global fund. but then with his marketing team we started thinking, well what if there were tools that could help red run better? because we're a small group of 20 people in new york city and we actually, you know are still using spreadsheets and stuff. so there is a lot of data as everybody said here, it's incredibly complicated. we now have tools to track where is the red money going for that country, how are they in the fight against mother-to-child transmission of hiv? are they having the right ultimate return on investment, saving lives? so we do that with marketing. we do that with social media. we do that with our partners sales. we're in such a different place a year later because of salesforce tools that we use. thank you for that as well. so why are we here today? two big reasons.
4:46 am
one is the donations; right? so you have heard that we're trying to raise a million dollars. you can donate in various booths. you can go to the pop-up shop and buy some red things, hint. you know, and the idea is that we would try to make a million dollars. but then marc and lynn benioff have graciously said they would match that and then the bill and melinda gates would double match it and talking $4 million in four days [ applause ] that is a lot of lives saved, just got to say that outloud. the other reason we're here is for companies. to have this platform to be able to talk to companies, and say, partner with us, join us. we can't do it alone. we want to eliminate mother-child transmission of hiv by 2020 and 30 million people have died of this
4:47 am
disease. 37 million still have it. it is the no. 1 killer of women of reproductive age, and the no. 1 -- no. 2 killer of adolescents world and my second request, if you can donate, but if you are a company tweet at us@red. and come join us and let's make the impossible, possible. thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you, deb. thank you, james. thank you, ed, thank you, nancy and i will tell you what a great team we have right here and we have a great team with our whole dreamforce community as well. everyone can do one thing to make the world a little bit better and that is certainly salesforce' philosophy and we try to put that in action right here at dreamforce and a great way to do that is to
4:48 am
make a contribution to red, buying a t-shirt or cash contribution, whatever works for you is great where us and another thing we have to do is adopt a public school, because nothing is more important than our children's education. all of us have public schools within a few blocks of our home and if we just knock on that principal's door and ask how i can help? thank you very much for everything that you are duke we'll see you at keynote at 1:00, thank you and tonight with bono 8:00! remind members of the public
4:49 am
the commission doesn't tolerate disruption of any kind of please silence all cell phones that may go off during the proceedings and if you care please state your name for the record. president wolfram. >> here. >> vice president hyland. >> here. >> commissioner johnck. >> here. >> commissioner johns. >> here. >> san mateo. >> here. >> and commissioner pearlman. >> here. >> first is general public and members of the public but address the commission within the subject matter jurisdiction of the commission except agenda items and then your time is afforded when the item is reached in the meeting. each member of the public may address the commission up to three minutes and let me just. >> does any member of the public wish to speak on a non
4:50 am
agendized item? if so come up and you will have 30 seconds. >> thank you. i am kathleen and a resident of bernal heights and represent neighbors in the community and we're concerned about the proposed addition of the third story to the existing bernal -- b star restaurant which was previously a landmark restaurant the liberty cafe and is unique in san francisco it has a large out door sunny court yard. the proposed changes to the building would take the charm of the existing cottage and essentially slap a third story on top of it creating an eye sore and destroying the business, the existing restaurant is not up to code in as far as there is an alley way to access the back courtyard and
4:51 am
we believe adding this addition will be a great loss for the residents of bernal heights and there is really nothing else to replace it. the owner who is from out of town is proposing a compound pharmacy be added to this third story with a series of awkward stair cases which will run through the courtyard piece of the restaurant so it's -- you know we don't fully understand why the value -- the existing value in the neighborhood would essentially be forfeited for the addition of something that is clearly seen as just an incremental improvement to an existing property at the cost of the community and that's all. >> thank you. any other members of the public to speak on an a non agendized item please come forward. seeing none. public comment is now closed.
4:52 am
>> commissioners that place us under department matters item 1, director's announcement. >> good afternoon. tim frye department staff. the report is included in your packet. i am happy to answer questions and in the newsletter place making twin peaks tavern was mentioned as the landmark of the quarter. >> item 2 review of past events and staff report and announcements. >> commissioners tim frye again department staff. a couple of items to share with you. no formal report from the planning commission however since our last -- [inaudible] [off mic] since our last
4:53 am
hearing in august you may be aware there there a fire at 447 minet street and a historic building part of the 5m project. it's a category one building under article 11 of the planning code -- >> does it have a name as well? >> pardon me? >> does it have a name of the building? >> it has a name. i can't recall what the specific name is. i am happy to -- forward you any information about the building but i did want to make you aware since late august we have been in contact with the developer. the developer has continued to work with arg who sent out their conservators and construction crew to stabilize the building and the good news is most of the damage is on the
4:54 am
interior where there were few character defining features remaining and they stabilized the structure and said they would keep us up-to-date on repair work as it progresses. our last contact with them was on august 29 where they were installing scaffolding and removing equipment from the roof and interior partitions damaged by the fire. they were going to secure windows and door openings to ensure that you know no other fires break out in the future but again i will let you know if anything else happens. in the meantime i will forward you the information about the property. and then lastly just to bring to your attention all of you were copied on an email. i believe it was sent out yesterday from the dogpatch neighborhood association raising concerns about an item on your calendar
4:55 am
and requesting a continuance. as you know will bring this issue up at the call of the item and it is up to the commission to decide whether or not their concerns warranted a continuance but staff is prepared to present the item at today's hearing. that concludes my comments unless you have any questions. >> commissioners seeing none we can move on to commission matters. item 3 president's report and announcements. >> no report or announcements today. >> item 4 consideration of adoption draft minutes for the arc meeting of june 152016 and for regular meeting of august 17, 2016. >> commissioners any edits to the minutes? we will take public comments on the draft minutes of the arc june 15, 2016 and the hpc meeting of
4:56 am
august 17, 2016. does any member of the public have comments on the draft minutes? seeing and hearing none we will close public comment. do i have a motion to adopted minutes. >> i so move. >> second. >> thank you commissioners on the motion to adopt the minutes for the june 15, 2016 and the august 17, regular hearing commissioner johnck. >> yes. >> commissioner johns. >> yes. >> commissioner matsuda. >> yes. >> commissioner pearlman. >> yes. >> commissioner hyland. >> yes. >> president wolfram. >> yes. >> so moved. that passes unanimously 6-0. commissioners that places us on item 5 commission comments or questions. >> any comments or questions? quiet bunch. we upon keep moving. >> excellent. commissioners that places us under the regular calendar item 6 for sis 2015-012830coa at 1133

4:58 am
and in the rear remove a historic rear addition and stair and would construct a new three story horizontal addition and extend 19 feet and 6-inches and vertical trim between the old and the new and cladd and painted to match the historic residents and overall increase the number of garage spaces from one to two and units to two to three and overall square footage of the residence up 24299 feet feept. department received correspondence from the dogpatch neighborhood association. there was an email submitted to the commission requesting a continuance due to lack of response by the owner and up for consideration of the hpc and if you so grant notification is still required for the property and has to under go
4:59 am
neighborhood notice. overall the department does recommend approval with conditions to ensure that the proposed work is under taken with conformation staff recommends the following conditions. one, prior to approval of the site prerment the owner should give the plans and landscaping and paving and fer rim terfencing and the district. planning staff should have final approval of all site work, two, prior to approval all permit the project sponsor should give all finished proposed materials. the board should demonstrate the ranges of them as well as the paint color and three, prior to approval of the site permit the project sponsor should give information about the hand rail. the new stair and hand rail should be
5:00 am
consistent with stairs within the district. the project sponsor is present and can answer questions and i am available for questions and this concludes my presentation. thank you. >> thank you. does the project sponsor have a presentation or -- >> my name is bob and i own the property, and i concur with the staff report, and we have been working with the neighborhoods associations and different neighbors for a number of years now, and we would like the project to proceed as quickly as possible and we will comply with the items mentioned to you by staff. we look forward working with the community on this project because it's a good project, really needed. thank you. >> all right thank you. does the commission have any questions for staff? at this time we will take public comment on this item. does any member of the public wish to comment on
5:01 am
the item? if so come forward. seeing no we will bring it back to the commission. commissioner pearlman. >> i would like to address the issue of the continuance. >> commissioner pearlman if you could speak into the mics that would be great. >> i'm voiceless today. i would like to address the issue about the continuance. it seems to me that i know this area. i have walked by this house. it is a desecrettant house and has been for decades and i would like to see this project move forward and seems to me with the conditions proposed by staff that would answer the list of questions that the dna spokesperson i forgot who wrote the email and address the dna issues about materials, the fence, sidewalk issues, so i think we should not continue this and move it forward today.
5:02 am
>> thank you. commissioners any other comments? do i have -- oh commissioner johnck. >> i would like to say getting a notice like that so close to the meeting time without any whole lot of very specific information as to what is wrong and after reading the staff report i felt that the staff addressed any issues and i agree that we continue to hear this and move ahead with it. >> yeah, if the hpc is concerned about the outreach with the community we can have the applicant do another meeting with the neighbors to ensure the property as updated is appropriately addressed to the surrounding neighbors and can be done prior to taking the 311 notification for the project. >> [inaudible] [off mic] >> so do i have a motion then?
5:03 am
>> yeah and to insert that what he just said. >> make it a condition of approval. >> can i address that? i want to address the neighborhood association. in that email it talked about they just got this information yesterday or monday i guess, and you know this information has been available. it's at the planning department. you know they know who the staff is. they certainly could have gotten the information if they weren't getting feedback from the owner, so i think -- you know it goes both ways. for those that are out there working and trying to get things done it's always a challenge. you know it's a back and forth. you know definitely the neighborhood associations you know contribute and of course dogpatch in particular. they're vigilant about that which is excellent thing but to claim they didn't know what is going on and didn't feel they had the right information i don't think is a fair way of dealing with this
5:04 am
problem and then asking for i continuance which would delay the project by a month or more so i think it's a two way street and i know no one from the neighborhood is here but i wanted that on record. thanks. >> thank you. >> commissioner johnck did you have another comment? >> we're sharing this i think. you are nowellen. >> hi there. commissioner hyland. >> yeah, i want to say it's good as stated and fine and regardlesses of other comments and i second the motion if it's hasn't been motioned already. >> we have a motion and a second. >> very good commissioners. on that motion to approve this matter with conditions as amended by staff. -- >> and the condition to -- >> as amended by staff. >> thank you. >> commissioner johnck. >> yes. >> commissioner johns. >> yes. >> commissioner matsuda. >> yes. >> commissioner pearlman. >> yes. >> commissioner hyland. >> yes. >> president wolfram.
5:05 am
>> yes. >> so moved commissioners. that passes unanimously 6-0. commissioners that places us on 7a, b, c, d, e and for 2016-010959lbr at 900 valencia street, case 2016-010958lbr at 1644 haight street, 2016-010966lbr, 199 valencia street, 2016-01093lbr, 506 clement street, and sis 2016-010965lbr at 1618 noriega street respectively. they're legacy business applications. >> commissioners tim frye department staff. before desiree gins i just thed to again mark this is her first time presenting as a member of the planning staff and please welcome her and with that i

5:09 am
we will do we will do the public comment which will include the ability for the sponsors to present their businesses. at this time i have one speaker card for pete molvillehill. >> good afternoon commissioners. thank you for your time and your service volunteering your time to keep san francisco vibrant and diverse city. green apple books is founded in 1967 with a credit union loan. it was 750 square feet and over the last 49 years it's expanded to 8,000 square feet in three buildings. in the late 90's it was sold to three long-term employees including myself and two others who had worked there. we're a unionized shop. our workers have wonderful benefits even before the city required health care and paid time off and the benefits we offered them. we
5:10 am
expanded and opened a new store in the inner sunset two years ago and the death of books. the building is pre-1906 building and you can see gas fixtures on the second floor. while the books and people have changed over the years if you shopped here 20, 30, 40 years ago it would feel the same as then. there are nooks and alcoves to get lost and discover things. the book selection is unparalleled in san francisco. the news and use booking in all areas and quarter million titles to choose from. books have helped couples conceive -- >> [inaudible] kids learn to read and readers get new perspectives et cetera. used books are more affordable and keeps knowledge and information and stories accessible to a broad range of san francisco consumers of all income levels. we circulate hundreds of dollars in the local economy and pay cash for the books from people
5:11 am
that bring them in. the book themselves have evolved and to what san francisco cares about. the attacks of 9/11 were a great example and two shelfs of middle eastern book and that ballooned. there is community support for this. we have 1265 yelp reviews, 1200 are four or five stars. for reference the closest next store with that many reviews is city lights and fewer than half of those. obviously it's a beloved institution and this is not to brag but to shore that the community really support the store. we won countless awards and jewish publications and the san francisco chronicle. two years ago we were awarded publisher's book seller of the year and once a year. i am going to run short on time so i would just focus on the fact that all of humanity has
5:12 am
happened at green apple and fires author quakes and dates and medical emergencies and marriage proposals and employees who met and married there. new stores have grown from ours and employees started their own businesses and we have 400 to 500 people a day and that's why we're here, the support of the community. it's not because of anything we have done but the community supports our store. thank you for your time and consideration. >> thank you very much. does other member of the public or sponsor of a legacy business wish to speak at this time? yeah please come forward. you will have three minutes and there is a warning bell 30 seconds before. >> good afternoon. my name is h.d ao g and the co-ownerir of henry's house of coffee and a third generation coffee rooster. our roots began in lebanon in the 40's when my
5:13 am
grand father had a business and you had to roast the coffee and he did that and as my father grew up at 12, or 13 and pulled out of school as tradition back then and helped with the business and his role was roast the coffee and my father immigrated to the united states and looked for a business and found house of coffee on irving street and opened up by a man which mr. johns had met back in 1965. my father perfected -- purchased the business in 1983 and was a specialty food store and had a coffee machine and "i know how to do this" and started
5:14 am
working there. i grew up in the business and hated it as a kid. my father pulled me out on saturday mornings and i wanted to watch scooby doo and he pulled me out and i didn't want to do that and after school i went into corporate finance but there was something about the business, the tradition and the heritage that i didn't want to go away. we're in the business not because it's a good business but because it's part of my heritage and i want to honor my father in that in anything i do. i want the business around for another 50 years and nominated as a legacy business is a honor and i hope you approve as well. >> thank you. any other member of the public wish to speak on these items, item 7? seeing none we will close public comment and bring it back to the commission.
5:15 am
>> commissioner johns. >> well, i will say i have been a customer since 1968 and testify and verify everything that he does and i've been a long time customer of green apple books although i don't think i got there until 1980. [laughter] but at any rate i think that these are two examples of extraordinarily worthwhile nominees for this particular thing. too bad that the others didn't make a presentation, but nevertheless so i move that we approve these. >> commissioner johnck. >> i second the motion. i want to comment -- particularly i love -- i mean the stories are beautiful and i kept thinking i would love to have these stories at a public event, the san francisco public library. maybe we feature legacy business or
5:16 am
san francisco historic preservation commission can work with the library on these but i was particularly inspired by the green apple books because i have been in there and whenever gi into a book store i pretend i am tom stopper and got his best ideas -- first place from book stores so for the purpose of discovery and envisioning your future and a kind of value proposition that reading and books emulates it's very resonates with legacy and our heritage here and i think it's particularly important you know long time san franciscans in publishing et cetera so that's my endorsement, yeah thank you and of course the coffee is great. >> thanks. >> commissioner. >> yeah, i want to thank you both. i don't know if i have been moved to tears before but i got a tear in my eye when you were telling the story -- i'm
5:17 am
sorry, harod. because i always talk about -- we always talk about san francisco is our stories. it's true of any place and the reason we do what we do and i appreciate your acknowledgment of that or your acknowledgment of that it's about keeping the stories alive and it's so rare to hear a story like yours in particular about generations and generations and your commitment, your sort of soul feeling that that this is something you want to keep alive and i understand you're teaching your son or daughter you know this tradition as well. also i'm so impressed there are three book stores. you know as you talked about i was in green apple books about two weeks ago and. >> there on a fairly regular basis and we hear about the death of book stores in the 90's and 2000's that was the story and to see three book stores
5:18 am
with the history that they each have and now will continue to have that in the city is incredibly impressive and thank you and thank you all for participating in this program. i think it's really important. thank you. >> commissioner matsuda. >> yes, thanks. i wanted to welcome desiree officially welcome desiree and i really enjoyed reading the summary you put together. i think you really capture what we were looking for when we started to brainstorm about what kind of legacy we can leave as a city entity and i think you're really starting to capture that. i would like to strongly encourage you and the rest of the planning staff to go one step further. i mentioned this at the last hearing, to really start to create a template where we incorporate the visuals as well as the stories that we heard today so that somebody who say visitor or a native can click and really get the feel why
5:19 am
these legacy businesses are important. i grew in the richmond neighborhood district and my dad was a book worm and people played baseball on saturday and i went to green apple books and i know it well and i know the cafe well because that was my treat after a book but i know now where i am going to buy my coffee. [laughter] >> commissioner hyland. >> yeah, i want to briefly -- i support all five of these. i was pleasantly surprised to see dog eared books and it was an institution and neighborhood i moved into 30 years ago and the book store in the castro i enjoyed and didn't make it and i walked past a couple of weeks ago and a different book store is coming in and i am happy
5:20 am
it's dog eared books so i support this as well. >> thank you. i think we have a motion and a second. >> we do. on that motion then to approve these -- excuse me adopt recommendations for approval for the five legacy business applications. commissioner johnck. >> yes. >> commissioner johns. >> yes. >> commissioner matsuda. >> yes. >> commissioner pearlman. >> yes. >> commissioner hyland. >> yes. >> president wolfram. >> yes. >> so moved that motion passes unanimously 6-0. and places on on 2015-007810th a dig dig work program. >> landmark designation work program. >> good afternoon commissioners. susan parks staff. this is an update on the work program of this year, the last ten days will account for next quarterly report. as usual through the work program items
5:21 am
that came before you and those that are expected to come before you in the coming montses. i will give you update on the survey teams projects and the performance measures we're tracking. mow have two designations still pending at the board of supervisors due to their recess and the cloud of witnesses and the amendment to 140 maiden lane. staff received one landmark designation for folsom street and bo swrart style residence identified in the inner mission north survey. once we completed the review of application we will bring it forward to you. staff met with the discuss the possible landmark designation application for that property as listed. as far as the other active designations they're produced
5:22 am
through the hpc and park funding. staff works with the consultants on the projects to move them forward. as far as our other designations we expect the peace pagotta and placa to come in the next quarter or two. we are meeting with the jap town community to discuss the ymca and get an update as well. the sailor's union is on hold and new era hall and we're waiting direction on you how to proceed with that designation. segueing into the new work program as you recall at your last meeting you add the approximately 40 properties to the landmark designation program and landmark district and a letter went out this week to the owners about the program and next time we will give you an idea of who is
5:23 am
supportive and who is not. at the last hearing you asked for a list of the properties on the work program and included on page 6 and seven of your packets. you can see we maintained the active and pending list. the active list includes some of the properties you added at the last hearing that are produced either by staff, consultants or sf heritage and the elray theater or casa sanchez and having a national registration or the properties as part of the central soma plan. the same methodology that we used for the districts but the haight-ashbury is active. that's because we have been in contacted with sf heritage how to proceed on the district but we haven't started work yet. as for the pending list divide that into phases for you. phase one is the properties that were identified endangered or those properties that have an active project and
5:24 am
the elkoa building or the temple up for sale. we included two projects we felt were immediate priority and national significance and kin min. quan and the church of fellowship of all people and national register. phase two includes the properties with substantially complete reports and on hold and arrow hall and -- [inaudible] staff is waiting for direction how to proceed. phase three are properties identified through statements or surveys for which we have quite a bit of information and minimal staff research could be required if we did decide to use the landmark designation for those designations and the last category is phase four. those properties are already
5:25 am
protected as existing landmark or conservation district or within an existing individual landmark. and their cultural and social heritage hasn't been adequately recognized. we referred to them as phrases but i want stress we might not do in this order but category of properties that we can pick and choose from accordly. staff serves as technical staff to the historic preservation committee. we are working on the african-american historic context statement and we're working with the his and cultural society how to create an outreach plan for that project. the latino historic statement and from various areas and sacred heart and new deal content statement. staff works
5:26 am
on the grants for under represented communities and for civil rights in san francisco and we expect to apply for a second grant soon to identify african-american specific sites in san francisco. as far as our performance measures the first is that we complete no new designations during the quarter. number two, the application has been posted to the website for over a year. number 3, again no new designations and four the next quarterly report is due to you january 4, 2017. this concludes my presentation. i am happy to answer any questions. >> thank you. commissioner commissioner matsuda. >> one question. thank you very much for your report. i just had a question about the japantown -- it's the yw -- not the ym. why this one is considered active and the
5:27 am
[inaudible] as phase one is further down the line because they were all nominated at the same time -- >> yeah, they were nominated together and came out of the that group. the y is part of the civil rights grant so that is one of the properties -- >> national park service. >> yeah, the national park service grant so we're working with consultants to prepare a national registration for those that you can review but turned into a landmark designation. >> okay. the key min [inaudible] is desperate need for attention than the y. >> yeah, that's why it's it's the top of the next priority list. we're not actively working on it as part of a grant. >> got it. >> other questions commissioners? why don't we take public comment and bring it back to the commission for further comments. at this time
5:28 am
we will have public comment. >> good afternoon commissioners. i wanted to report on two items that work program. one is george washington high school. as you might know supervisor eric mar put money in the add back to work to do the study and i just found out from heritage that the report is going to be ready to come to staff in october and since eric mar's termed out in january i was hoping that the report could be sent tote board of supervisors so introduce it before his last meeting in january because he's been a really big support offer of not only the -- -- supporter of this and the green apple books and i think it would be an honor for
5:29 am
him if the commission could do that. i haven't seen the report yet but and the mother's building i think the commission is interested. supervisor katy tang put $400,000 in the city budget -- if you read the report to do phase one -- or the immediate needs and the short term needs but before that the zoo has been cleaning up the building and doing some of the repair work on it. last week the team arg, myself, rec and park and the art commission staff we were all out there looking to see what needs to be done in the next phase and mapping out a plan of how to allocate the money that's been spent, and also the art
5:30 am
commission found some photos. as you know the western wall was damaged with water so it might help in recovering the mural. they're not sure whether they can actually recover the whole mural or stay the way it is in some places and finally the zoo is coming up with a plan. if you have been out to the zoo they opened the children's area and want to reopen the slope boulevard entrance which would be great and people would see the building and reuse the building as the history of the zoo and honor -- i would like them to see honor the wpa women artists since there weren't that many of them so things are coming around but we haven't found the four to $5 million to do the major renovations. thank you. >> thank you. any other
5:31 am
members of the public wish to speak at this time please come forward? seeing none. public comment is now closed. commissioners any questions? why don't we talk about new era hall. it seems to be sort of languishing on this list but waiting for us to direct move it forward. mr. frye do you have a comment on that? >> commissioners as you recall this report has been completed -- excuse me, there was some discussions with the property owner who is reluctant to move forward on the discussion primarily because they were discussing an easement that they shared with the neighboring property. my understanding it has been resolved however it doesn't appear they are actively interested in designation. this commission though would like to schedule a hearing on it it could bring that conversation
5:32 am
to light and we could really figure out the best course of action. >> can we get any feedback about -- i mean now that particular issue was resolved why he or she is reluctant to move forward as a landmark? do we know why? >> based on my conversations with the property owner the property owner is crossroads clothing company that occupies the ground floor. i don't know if it's standard practice for them to purchase the buildings they occupy. they bought the building a number of years ago and simply stated they were interested in running their retail component and not in preservation to be short. we did make them aware of the mills act and other amenities that are provided by the planning code, incentives but they just didn't
5:33 am
seem interested. >> do we have a history of any other landmarks that had resistance or ones that got this far and then just languished and never happened? do you know of any? >> not necessarily. again i think it may be worth having that conversation in a public forum with the property owner to see if we can address some of their concerns -- >> actually we did have the case with the -- i am trying to think of the owner -- the building -- >> [inaudible] [off mic] >> the property owner wasn't keen on the nomination. >> but eventually supportive -- >> wasn't really resistant,. >> somewhat resistant. >> and the owner of marcus books and the owner wasn't interested so it has happened. >> commissioner hyland. >> yeah, i propose that we move this forward. i have concerns about the strip on
5:34 am
market street to octavia to noe street and rezoned to 85 feet. we had a project -- the fedex kinkos building at market and deboas and last meeting and vertal additions on the buildings and it's a challenge and this project specifically -- this new eera hall is along market street and along with the property at church set the whole street experience for that block so i propose that we move it forward. we invite the property owner to come talk to us and let us tell the property owner how important it is our commission and to the city. >> i see a lot of nodding heads so we have a consensus to move that item forward. >> for a hearing. >> for a hearing , right. >> [inaudible] [off mic] the question is an initiation
5:35 am
hearing. >> right. >> and that would be a common thing we could do in a case like this. >> right and we can decide to initiate or not at the hearing and we have done the work -- >> notwithstanding the concern or lack of interest. >> yeah. commissioner johnck did you have another comment? >> no, i am good. >> commissioner hyland. >> can we move on? >> sure. >> i have a question. there was a hotel in south park -- >> isn't it here. >> [inaudible] (talking over one another). >> actually three properties. >> got it. i wanted to make sure it was there. >> any other questions? >> what about the other project in the parks mentioned that were languishing? >> new era hall was one and strand theater we're waiting for the owner to provide some things. the boat house we can discuss. the sailors union of the pacific --
5:36 am
>> we're waiting on the owner on that one. we have been waiting for a year but golden gate park -- [inaudible] >> (talking over one another). >> when it was tabled two, three years ago, five. >> the boat house hasn't been recently rehabilitated. i don't know we felt there was a sense of urgency after the work was done and golden gate park is a big question. >> yeah. >> maybe for another hearing. i don't know. mr. hyland. commissioner hyland. >> i have other questions. are they listed in bullets and put into what staff believes the priorities or just the categories? >> they're mostly categoriorized and not immediate order. >> okay. are we wanting to prioritize these? maybe not today but in general. i propose that we put kin monglawkin at the top. >> at the top. >> yeah. that's the immediate
5:37 am
suggestion and maybe we -- >> yeah that one and maybe the galvanizing works at the top of the list too. that maybe could be second. >> this is great. thank you. >> thank you. >> i don't see any other comment. thank you very much for your hard work and your very clear presentation of this material. that's great. and i think that's our final item; right? so we can adjourn the hearing.
