7:44 pm
speaker, please >> hello. my name is merlin and a san francisco taxi driver. i came to talk about the uber lift side car ride share. i want to say thank you for the taxi lanes. i want to just say like you know, the population in san francisco has increased and not everyone is riding bicycles. the thing is like us taxi driversory pay decreased dramatically. uss a a industry are regulated for the rates. who set those, insurance and how it cabs are identified, but at the same time you knowubeer lift side car lide share those drivers can come from any city where san francisco cab drivers can only work in san francisco and oakland drivers can't work in
7:45 pm
san francisco. it seems like unfair that anybody quhoo lives in the surouning cities can get around being regulated by turning on a app and come and be a taxi for a day or on their vacation. i understand like people want-they are trying to fix problems with technology and stuff but it is kind of a step back because i attempted to go the ride share route and called progressive and gikeo and state farm and none of them offer their services in california yet. i'm not saying like-i'm say us taxi drivers have to have these regulations in insurance policies and high fees that we pay for medallions but pieces of papers are given to cell phone users who turn on
7:46 pm
a app and their new career and what we do every day and the worst part is they are not-some are from san francisco-but >> thank you very much. next speaker please >> good even, my name is alan mar teen ezand here to support the mooreatorium on construction in the mission. i fs looging through the neighborhood plan the aert day and it is a ubsurd document. the goals and intention of the document are in shambles. it is a disaster fwr the mission. during the writing of the long writing of the neighborhood plan and [inaudible] there were a variety of moore toniums in place while the plan is crafted so think it is reasonable to look at some forms of mooreatorium and control on construction while we rethink
7:47 pm
that plan. i think it does also bring up larger issues that when you spend 10 years writing a plan how responsive can it be to econompic sipuations that change year by year. i think this ought to be a opportunity to rethink the planning process in general because a plan that takes 10 years to right can't turn on a dime. there is also issues around-the suvars done in the mission didn't take into account latin american history after the 19th century. new information came to light and thing that is important and should inform whatever does happen with these neighborhood plan. >> thank you very much. next speaker, please >> michael lion from the san francisco gray panthers. i
7:48 pm
lived for 40 years in mission burnal heights district and rently had to move out for reasons i was lucky i wasn't forced out but i was a little while ago, several months ago i was supposed to meet someone on the corner of 16th and [inaudible] and the person was late and so i was reading something and walking toward the place where i was suppose today meet him and suddenly looked up from what i was reading and had no idea where i was. it was like i was picked up and put in a foreign city. i had to look around and find a street sign to see where i was and was on vulanceia near mission. it wasn't just the buildsings and stores that were different, it was the people that were different. this area
7:49 pm
has just been devastated. we look back at what happened to blacks in san francisco who really were driven out and we would say anybody would say never again this can never happen again. and yethis is about what is happening in the mission and it has to stop. >> thank you, next speakers please >> good afternoon supervisors my name is lesly [inaudible] residents native. i would like taspeak about the federal communication commission. the fcc safety guide line frz radiation exposure was developed in the 1960's not by health experts but by and for industry and military users. urm theal heating olf tissue is

7:51 pm
exposure guideline is considered protective of the effect from a thermal mechanism, but not from all possible mechanisms therefore the generalization by many that guidelines protect human beings by harm isn't justified. federal hent and safety agencies have not developed policies concerning ringe from long term exposure. since the u.s. has no safety standards the fcc alouz for 100 million times more exposure to the population than the ostrien [inaudible] throughout public spaces >> thank you mam. your time is up. next speaker, please m. >> i'm [inaudible] certified nutritionist mpts broad band fiber internet can be a smart way to go until further
