8:09 pm
for continuance stems from the request to clarify a number of issues in the background of this project which were not part of when this project was first scheduled to appear in front of us and those issues are technical in nature they need clarifications for the entire body before we schedule there are dbi violations and until their cleared the project needs to be to in my opinion looked like a submittal that intentionally did not fully explain the background of the project including the plans that were submitted i'll be clear i'm a person that wrote a complaint to the zoning administrator to raise those issues before they
8:10 pm
were even scheduled to appear here since that's not occurred and still in process all the matters a claertd including myself not planning to make that unworkable but first steps first before we agree to a specific date for the project to occur that's nothing like that and i asked we persian the specific date out further. >> commissioner antonini. >> well i think there should be a date if there is a date we revolve the issues i'm not familiar as commissioner moore but i think you put a date and mark in the sand if it is not ready it can be continued i'm fine for the continuance june is

8:15 pm
been regrettable legislation from that board one of the worse things i've heard considered is a moratorium on market rate housing in the mission in terms of housing less is not more even the premise is not accurate we got a report no our recent study on the san francisco housing inventory monk it was 10 unit produced if 3 and 75 unit i couldn't get ahold of staff not what is being built but not beingability betsy carmichael a proliferation of a lot of housing is not accurate to begin with and also the mission is a desirable place it is good for us but stopping housing production is not going
8:16 pm
to slow down the ability on raise the prices and everyone will bid it up i'm not alone in those feeling the perspective analysis produced a paper i gave to all the commissioners this year an california's high housing costs and they said the chief cost of the high costs particular in coastal areas is lack of building the housing to meet the demand and a bag produced a paper it says 5th development and driving up housing costs and also the author of the new geography of jobs who is also a mission district resident said in part of his book that deals with did you curtailing development makes
8:17 pm

8:19 pm
staff last night i hope at some point we can make a determination through the nexus process this year to try to figure out once and for all new housing causes displacement we can have it now so we can mitigate it when it happens that helps the argument i don't know one way or the other the one thing i want to understand the staff is working with the people on the 20/20 plan in porsche in the next couple of weeks on the information what that it would be veryinformative. >> commissioners, if there's nothing further. >> item 7 directors in the amount. >> good job commissioner richards certainly we'll update
