and selecting who they want to serve on cac. i also surf the mayor's task force. we have never allowed anyone to come up in our community and dictate to us, when robert kennedy came to our community 1968 , to find out what we wanted in housing he asked the young people in the community , what do we want. we demand a voice in the community; . would not allow city hall or anyone else and dictate to our residents thank you very much and i want to thank london breed for being one of those persons on the redevelopment commission that brought the police station down and sixth street and many other things that she
has done as a commissioner and anyone who would run for election or anyone else should participate in the community organizations. >> president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> tom gilberty, (sounds like) south beach marina apartments. a little repeat. i have no title, no claim to fame, not a head of any major organization. the bayview apartments open up 25 years ago. i moved in in december, 24 years ago, 10 months later we had the little earthquake of '89.
i don't want what happened in my neighborhood to continue to happen in other neighborhoods, basically unregulated rent and noise. so with that let's go to the overhead angle back to our global birds' nest village; it's going to be in stockton street. the inspiration for that is like an tower, why not? we have four hours that we want to build, an imminent domain, very doable. what you won't see in the environmental impact reports, where the noise is going. where the noise is going, you have ventilation systems, this is going to be the end,
dumped off the side, over here you will have ventilation for automobiles, the garage, and then, with 12 seconds left you also have environmental impact report of what happens when just got an emergency generator and those are emergency generators and those are all noise, and unregulated. thank you for your time. >> president chiu: thank you . next speaker. >> good afternoon supervisors. my name is thomas -- i am a resident in the dolores park, it is in general regarding all of san francisco anything it bears repetition to say this is a world-class city, the most liberal city in the united states, perhaps the most liberal city in the planet earth and we need to move forward with a lot of regard for the citizens of earth,
meeting people who live here not the rich little kids were running to get stone and high in dolores park. i think it is an invasion of the 18th street corridor. inds (indiscernible)we don't walk down the sidewalk anymore because restaurants have taken over. i live on the corner, i know them all. there is drug dealing out the window. my daughter was born 15 years ago there. there is no ordinance being of help. there is no regulation. the noise violation is unbelievable. the over density population of dolores park is exceeding any kind of limited its existing. we give our care to money.
we can talk about all the gay freedom and all the liberation and the wonderful things about the ozone layer but what about the people who live in the city. we do nothing for them. we are invaded. we are not able to live there remove and i am sorry for speaking so hastily but i do not know that it is only two mintues. but i wanted direction from the board perhaps supervisor wiener; we need to enforce the fact that we cannot be talking outside of people's windows. they can loiter outside of our windows all night long. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon -- from san francisco. in these days of terrorism
and evil this over evil that, perhaps it it would help if we came to the realization that there is evil in the world and it stems from a worldwide sickness of the human heart; sickness stemming from broken hearts and broken dreams, misery, despair, what a heartbreak for inanity. instead of pointing fingers of evil a perhaps we should just throw our arms around one another worldwide and have ourselves a little fashion cry for the tragedy that is engulfing the human spirit. thank you. >> good afternoon supervisors my name is douglas -- in today's examiner, there is an article titled
mental patient dumping probe started. i would like to inform city attorney herrera that that is an ongoing practice hinted in this article and the board of supervisors and the mayor's office will stop interfering with a full audit of the department a public health, i'm sure city attorney herrera would have found out about practice years ago. why don't we try to find out why. for so many years , why were so many patients going through san francisco hospital getting free care, when i interviewed them for eligibility so many of them fit the pattern that they were coming outside of the state of california and it was pretty
obvious to me that so many of those patients had been told, you come to general hospital. you will get free care. there was no mention of medi-cal. let's put it this way. if you want to help the poor people, maybe you ought to do the full audit of the department of public health; and then you will see how much money has been wasted since 1989, and you can cannot calculate that you guys have been sitting here not doing your job. also i would like to know how much money the mayor was able to collect while he was in china for the support of the america's cup since you came up empty on treasure island and the other location. let's asking how much he got for the america's cup. that is something for -- thank you. >> president chiu: next speaker.

art thou only a stranger in jerusalem, and he said under them, what things? and they said unto him concerning jesus of nazareth which was at prophet mighty in deed and word before god and all the people, and had the chief priests and rulers delivered him to be crucified. -- and when they found not his body they came saying that they also had seen a vision of angels which said that he was alive, and certain of them with us went to the sepulcher and him they saw not. he said unto them, oh fools and slow of hearts.
after he satisfy the claims of justice into his glory beginning with moses and all the prophets he expounded unto them in all the scriptures and things concerning himself -- and he made as though he would've gone further but they constrained then saying abide with us, and the day is far spent and he went into terry with them, and he took bread and blessed them. >> any of the members of the public wish to speak? seeing none, general public comment is now closed. gvl (gavel)can we skip over the close adoption -- and move to the -- >> if a member object the matter can be removed and considered separately.

>> we came to seven straight about 10 years ago. -- 7th street about 10 years ago. the environment is huge. it is stronger than willpower. surrounding yourself with artists, being in a culture where artists are driving, and where a huge amount of them is a healthy environment. >> you are making it safer. push, push. that is better. when i start thinking, i see it actually -- sometimes, i do not see it, but when i do, it is usually from the inside out. it is like watching something
being spawned. you go in, and you begin to work, excavate, play with the dancers, and then things began to emerge. you may have a plan that this is what i want to create. here are the ideas i want to play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening. really listening to watch what is going to emerge. i like this thing where you put your foot on his back. let's keep it.
were your mind is is how you build your life. if you put it in steel or in failure, it works. that works. it is a commitment. for most artists, it is a vacation and a life that they have committed themselves to. there is this notion that artists continue to do their work because of some kind of the external financial support. if that was taken away, artists would still do their art. it is not like there is a prerequisite for these things to happen or i will not do it. how could that be? it is the relationship that you have committed to. it is the vocation. no matter how difficult it gets, you are going to need to produce your art. whether it is a large scale or very small scale. the need to create is going to
happen, and you are going to have to fulfill it because that is your life. >> if you haven't had a chance to see the stadium and the wonderful progress so far. it's absolutely breathtaking. also as a great symbol of hope on the regionalism that we all hope that we can be engaged for event for the future. today we talk about solidarity around the super bowl. there is no greater place to have it here than in this valley. we have the very best weather and we have the very best people and company's to support the event.
i know that anyone that comes to santa clara will be excited and everyone will have a wonderful time. between golden gate and silicone valley, we can't be beat. i'm thrilled to have you here today. i would like to turn it to our partner, the mayor of san francisco. >> thank you for bringing us altogether. thank you for your leadership, thank you for your leadership. i'm down here to join the other mayor's and other officials, not just our city, but all the city and officials in the peninsula and bay area so we can announce our joint collaborative effort for the super bowl bid. it's an incredible opportunity. i'm
glad to see this going as well as it is because it's really a commitment to the economy of the whole region as to this particular project. having said that, the super bowl bid is an incredible thing and the strength of our bid is a collaboration of this whole region. this is how we think we will win this bid. this is not for any one particular city, it's us working together. not only on transportation issues, not only on cites, but all the hospitality that we have set. i want to thank all the regionals for working together. we want that super bowl xv very badly. we think we have the greatest
opportunity to work for it and not only to win that bid, but to get ourselves in an incredible rotation for other super bowl hosting. we look at this long-term and it's the reasonable approach that will give us the strengths for the nfl to take into consideration. i want to be thankful for all the regions mayor's for joining us and the 49er organization. they brought us together at this time. it's going to be a great thing for san francisco. thank you. >> thank you for coming out. this is an amazing site. there are a thousand people working on this project today. those thousand people have come from all over the area for regional
benefit. we are along the border from san jose. it stands to benefit wah as well as the region. we have the most important economies in the world. this building, this facility and this team and this team are a regional asset to the economy. to bring the super bowl here would be a regional effort with regional benefits. we are excited about it and happy to participate and looking forward to our hotels, restaurants, facilities for people who are visiting san francisco and santa clara and other cities around the area. super bowl 50, i don't care, we'll take either one. we have a great team put together to make that happen. it will take a lot of collaboration and we in san jose as well as san francisco and santa clara are committed to making it happen.
