that we might one have with the planning department that something you're interested in, but we will be revisiting those incentives to work originally talked about this new development. then, lastly, i also want to maybe just remind commissioners that perhaps some of the vacancies that were noted on polk street produce a soft story orders. things are covered in carver and there may not be signage that is a street that does have there are buildings that have more than five units residential units, above and so to can keep that in mind that some of those vacancies may be due to the soft story ordinance. then, at her next meeting you're going to have a presentation from the planning department on transportation demand management. so, perhaps this is a good place for you to also address some of your comments and concerns that you brought up
