venue at night. in the materials you will find several dozen letters or signatures of support for the poe applications. but will turn it over. -- i will turn it over. >> i own that building, ms. francesca has a business in the building. since we have a never-ending problem with our tenants, the tenants have decided not to pay the rent, we evicted them and pay much want to have this standing precaution [unintelligible] and have management stuff to [unintelligible]
as safety for the neighborhood. it would be open for the public but we're going to also [unintelligible] private events to the neighborhood. which is upscale clientele. we're not going to accept party bosses. -- buses. i never did, i never liked it. we like to have that safety for neighborhoods be -- we already have our neighbors. [unintelligible] glendon on the church once a month. we know all our neighbors, when
lord, merchants, and would like to -- landlord, merchants, and we would like to keep this safety on the broadway that would be a mecca for entertainment in the city. unfortunately, sometimes it is not to save and businesses are hurt. we would like to change that. president newlin: thank you. would anyone else like to comment? >> francesca is my partner of the building and owner of [unintelligible] studios. i am helping her do everything else. and he is our security guard. >> i love the fact that you referenced the [unintelligible] and you talk about music, food,
art, and entertainment. are you promoting this in-house as yourself? are you hiring the bands? are you bringing rock-and-roll back to broadway? is that what you are going to be doing? >> most of the time everything in the house. that might be of course sometimes that we're going to have some promoter from outside of our group. and he has to be licensed or registered with the city. we would like to have anything opening, a dj or live bands. we do not have any dress code but we have no problems. >> my question was are you going
to have live music? a band? you are. thank you. president newlin: any other questions? i would like to hear from the police department now. >> it is a good sign when the permit officer approaches the applicant and says, just do the things you are already doing. they operate broadway studios and they do a very good job there and have looked at his business plan as far as what they want to do with the neighborhood. they're trying a couple of different new things which are really like. we're talking about the rebranding of broadway and this is a great start. he has assured me that will keep their hands on management style, that is what i want. we do not want someone to get an
entertainment permit and turn the keys over to someone else. he has assured me they will not do that. they do not do that upstairs and it will not switch the way they do the things -- they will not switch the way they do the things. it will be a good change. there has been a lot of different businesses that have not worked out well. we have had a lot of violence on the calls for service. we're looking forward to this new business coming in. thank you. president newlin: any questions of steve? party bus. are they parking in front and unloading in front to go to atmosphere? >> they are still prohibited from stopping based on the no parking zones. they still try to come through but a lot of times they have to go down the street to drop off and pick up. >> some of the officers have left the area to hit the hot spots. are there still officers there to move those buses so it does not get impacted? >> we have that and traffic
officers when they can dedicate those, they're very, very effective. -- the operators don't want to get a ticket from the solos, there will have to go to court and it will be a point against the driver's license. president newlin: any questions? seeing none, is there anyone who would like to address this? >> in support again, i have been to broadway studios as their guest, it is a fantastic place to be and i have never seen any issues in the venue. i would request that you support their place of entertainment permit. thank you. president newlin: thank you. >> good evening.
one thing i will say, carl and francesca have seen a lot and they have a lot of experience and they know what not to do. there are plenty of people who go with high expectations and their little wet behind their ears. they are experienced and they owned the building and other business and they know what not to do. president newlin: thank you. seeing no other further public comment, the item is with the commission. do we have a motion? do you want to say anything more? >> i would like to say it would love to see live music on broadway again. and when i moved here, the stone was still open. if you do that, i will be there. i think that it is a great idea. president newlin: ok.
is that a motion? >> i love to grant the permit. >> i will second. i will say what audrey said. since we went over there when i first started a year ago today, when i joined the commission, live music would be very helpful on broadway. what i was asking about this today, if it is live music, that would be a great addition to broadway and working with both of you has always been very pleasurable. so i wish you good luck and i will give a second. [roll call vote] >> good luck. >> are you crying, really? >> item seven.
this has been a tearful meeting. tears of joy. item 7, commissioner comments and questions. are there any? >> i would like to comment, a quick update about a sub committee for the task force we had pulled together in february and march. we did hold two meetings, we intended on holding three. for anyone that is paying attention to planning is, the western soma plan released its er and comments were due yesterday. we were trying to pull together the group began to see if we can formally comment as a subcommittee or even pass that along to the full commission. the meetings, we had could turn out the first meeting. we talked about housing,
entertainment, the buffer zones that around -- or around the housing and we talked about transportation and the need for entertainment along routes of public transit. unfortunately, we could not formalize any recommendations and it is too late for the eir. i would like to dissolve the committee for the time being. i think we will have an opportunity when the actual plan goes up to the planning commission to kind of regroup and it was good to hear, watching the hearing that the planning commission had on it and tons of folks came out from the entertainment community and the businesses along 11th street to voice their concerns. i would like to continue their relationships we've built with the folks on 11th street but dissolve the committee at this time and where needed, reconvene once the planning commission does hear it again.
that is right to be an opportunity to formally make a statement as a commission. that is my comment. i do not know if that is an action item or how that works. >> the president forms and dissolves committees. you are making a request, i imagine, for the president to do so. president newlin: ok. the president approves the dissolutionment. >> anybody else? >> i have a question to that. you are dissolving, it is dissolved for that time. never to convene. we had two meetings and that is it, or -- >> it was good to have a staff member from the planning department come out to clarify things. what i am proposing is let's
dissolved it for now and when it comes back -- when it is agendaized and th -- part of the planning commission's process, we will get a notice and put this around whatever recommendations you want to make. does that make sense? it is dissolved for now. and reconvened later as needed. president newlin: ok. item #8, new business requests for future agenda items. i had a couple. i would like to hear about the lgbt historical district or leather historical district as it involves a lot of entertainment. i thought it would be great to have a presentation. since it involves so much entertainment it would be good to hear what they have in mind for that.
with more information coming out about how to better modify sound, i was wondering if there was any way we could talk about preserving an outdoor patio is and making sound, talk about sound on outdoor patios. even if there are ways to return it without destroying the neighbors since we do live in a city that has patio's -- patios. i am wondering if we cannot revisit some of that or at least hear about mitigation. the sisters of perpetual indulgence run the pink saturday, and they are and not for profit who have been running a major, major event. i know for fact they often feel that they cannot be heard and a now we do offer sound permits but i think it would -- i know
we do offer sound permits but i think it would be interesting hearing the issues they have running this event. to see if there is not some way we can direct them to get better responses from the city. it is an outdoor event and we do have a hand in that. i just feel that they're being asked to do whole lot and not -- they do not feel they're getting quite the help they need. so maybe if we could hear from them around that. president newlin: ok. what i would recommend on that item is they submit something in writing to the commission so we have an idea that we're not just carry them, we have it ahead of time so there might be prepared response to their specific issues. we do not want to waste their time coming in here and having a list of grievances that we're hearing for the first time. with that -- >> could you tell me who in the
leather community is dealing with this historic district? >> i do not believe it is in the leather community. from the planning commission or from the planning department, there was paul lord and jim meko was the other name. commissioner joseph: anybody from the greater leather community that has been talk to about anything? i have heard nothing about that community being approached for its ideas and its historical value. >> that is not necessarily the group that has been outreached to. i got a copy and i want to bring it for everyone here so we could have a look at it before we
would hear anything about it. to my knowledge, it is an idea and christina olague and a couple of people are looking for ways to create this without legally in our city. a lot of the weather community has not been -- leather community has not been outreached. commissioner joseph: who would speak to that? >> the people who were to that. -- wrote to that. president newlin: this is a recommendation of new items. commissioner hyde: -- this has been brought up to me. president newlin: we will coordinate with staff. we had the sound guy earlier. we should have ran it by him.
and we also have our very own superintendent coranza. i am sure you want to hear a few words from the superintendent, correct? from mayor lee? the spring them a warm harvey milk will come. -- let us give them a warm harvey milk will come. >> good morning, everybody. welcome back to harvey milk academy. it is my pleasure to join all of you, the students, parents, faculty, and school administration, to kick off a wonderful year. how many students want to be mayor of san francisco? how about a mayor from the civil rights academy of harvey milk? we would be proud of that. i want to welcome everybody back. i know you had a great summer.
