in ways i've heard outside in the communities i'm appreciative our building a movement and a culture of health and dignity for people people with disabilities and seniors isn't city i'm proud to be an ally of the organization that have started over i think 2 years ago because brown it was a concept at the board of supervisors and we want to commend say that by placing this on the ballot in november and passing this in san francisco we'll become the first city in the nation to respond to the baby boomers and the huge boom the population of people with disabilities and seniors but we will be the first city in the nation to have the resources not only for existing programs but other programs that allow people to age in place in they're concentrated own community and provided adequate nutrition and services to the aging population in the city i want to shout out that
2:53 pm
supervisor cowen made not only to supervisor cowen and myself for really sheriff's deputy reading but supervisor breed and supervisor kim we wouldn't be supportive without that vibrant grassroots movement that is had not been educating us see along the way i'm a baby boomer and supervisor yee we're aging in our communities and i think that is forward-looking that supervisor cowen mentions the bay area senior population is doubling in numbers from this decade to 2040 and 1234rz will make up 40 percent of population of san francisco so i then is why fiscal planning while the rulers budget app by the board it is equitable for the seniors especially protecting seniors in the neighborhoods throughout the city i want to thank my staff

2:55 pm
supervisor cowen for her leadership this measure despite it in brainier it was definitely a long trail in terms of even if getting this from start to finish with a lot of dialogue and negotiation sensitivity towards the overall budget picture and the competing needs but in tend we're making a strog statement our seniors and people with disabilities are not an afterthought or a group that gets fund when had maishtd available but prioritize support for the seniors and people with disabilities in our budget every year with a dedicated fund this makes all the sense in the world our senior populations is growing
2:56 pm
and make sure that our seniors and your residents with disabilities are able to be violent members of the community and be at home with full support and to really age gracefully i mentioned earlier in the press conference celebrating this vote today, i want to thank the dignity fund coalition for activity including and embracing the lgbt community we have a growing lgbt senior population which is a really good thing particularly because people with hiv are living longer and we need to make sure that we are meeting the unique needs of lgbt seniors we've gone through a long planning process in terms of policy recommendations to meet the needs of lgbt seniors and gradually doing that
2:57 pm
including the legislation later today about the clients of our social services but the inclusion felt lgbt community and the disability fund in the coalition is much appreciated thank you. >> thank you, supervisor wiener supervisor tang. >> thank you first, i want to start off by thanking supervisor cowen and supervisor mar and supervisor yee, of course, the dignity coalition for all the important work on this measure unfortunately i'm not able to support this measure not has nothing to do with with the fact i'm the youngest member of the board but in the general policy to not support the baseline not backed by revenue sources so this is consistent with how i've not supported the transportation baseline for example, in recent times and the most recently passed parks set aside not that
2:58 pm
i don't support any of the important issue areas but to me i do believe in having that conversation comprehensively with all the budget priorities in san francisco but i will continue to and have as a member of budget committee support funding for our senior community whether in the form of providing support at home or in the form of groceries deliveries and meal deliveries whether this is in the form of other services again, our seniors need so again want to explain why i'm not able to support this particular measure today but thank you to everyone that worked on it. >> thank you supervisor katie tang supervisor yee. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i'll stand for this just to show i'm not that senior.
2:59 pm
>> so first of all, i want to thank my colleagues supervisor cowen and supervisor mar for working with everybody other than on the board of supervisors to work together and work with the dignity fund advocates i have to say that for 4 years i've gone through 4 budgets and every single year i've been here i've fought for interesting services for seniors and people with disabilities and getting frustrated every year knowing is it so not enough for the population that we have today and for us to project the numbers that we will see in the future and not do anything about it operationally is really a disservice to our seniors and people with disabilities i earlier today at the press
3:00 pm

3:03 pm
of san francisco that's why we as city government made choices and the same choices that families make sometimes you put money aside to make investments and one of the things we have invested in the children's fund we take care of children in san francisco well, if he do that for the youth we have to do that for other seniors and the disabled community that's why we have to support this about having a level of dignity that people can live under i know for a fact hike in mission and the brets and so many of the seniors are struggling we live in the most sxeven city in the world and in the country's we have to make san francisco prioritize our senior and disabilities communities i'm proud to be part of that effort.

3:09 pm
process we were able to identify $60 million in savings i believe a record if you take out the $25 million that was toward affordable housing with $23 million in the first year and $25 million in the second year with the saving in terms of our prioritization over $13 million proudz produced for housing and 6 mental illness for public safety and common sense police reforms and $7 million for the lgbt and getting to vision zero and securing over $7 million for the pain risk services and over $2 million to address the food security needs and many, many other priorities that are reflected i know there is going to be discussion about the budget i believe what we have in front of the passed out of committee and want to thank everyone for they're concentrated efforts i mexico's the community members

3:14 pm
involved from our aid and staff to the supervisors to the city staff in this budget process was not fully appreciated until on the budget committee i saw all the work that everybody had to do for several months for some of the city staff that was much more than several months but when you see fined and realize that oh, my god those decisions have to be made and finding the best budget for the residents in the city i have to say i'm in full support of this that budget but make a comment about some assumptions that we made as we put this budget together that came to any awareness into the process i didn't realize we were trying to balance the budget and with
3:15 pm
the money we didn't have we're hoping to get revenues through the ballot initiative and that should be something we never should do again, it put us in angle awkward situation and you'll hear the rest of it today as you can see if we don't pass many of this stuff can does it mean to the budgets i don't think that is the way that any entity along the city's budget should be put together think i want to physique low responsible and not end up with not enough funding to fund the budget weeping we'll be voting other than today, i want to say not that i won't port the budget but that's what is happening
3:16 pm
i don't think any of us going forward should allow that to occur again so thank you for all the work put into this. >> thank you supervisor yee. >> supervisor peskin. >> i'll defer my comments. >> supervisor mar. >> yeah. he port supervisor avalos most motion to consider the revenue dlament but thank you to supervisor farrell for chairing the and it is hard work and the $9.6 million is the biggest decision we make as supervisors i said to thank the budget and budget analyst for finding the safrdz allocated in the budget as well, i think that is a balancing of citywide needs with each circuit courts needs and i credit supervisor farrell but supervisor norman yee for insuring that we had equity at
3:17 pm
the citywide level but also fairness for each district is there i want to acknowledge the food security task force again, this year vac with strength for $2 million more to end hunger in san francisco by 2020 tremendous prop and acquaintance for meals on who's also and the whole task force effort for food justice and helping the community doubling the hope sf helps us transform the grocery store not only in the bayview and the dirnd but to other neighborhoods i think that the healthy cornerstone coalition deserves many proposes for that effort the water assess and health equity with the public utilities commission and the unified school district and rec and park allows us to expand access to
3:18 pm
healthy clean drinking waters with one new drink stations by the end of this year and one and thirty by the end of 2015 but the coalition by aerial and many grassroots latin and african-american and advocates for health access is really important like the dignity fund coalition many of the seniors were successful with any office to create a new program one $.6 million for in-home care for upper poor and low income people to have access to stronger in-home care that treats the health carew with dignity and provides caring across adjudications in the culminates to proposes to the seniors and the action for winning this important 0 program for seniors

names on the roster, colleagues, can we take that same house, same call? without objection this ordinance is finally passed unanimously. >> next speaker, please. >> item 31 was referred without recommendation from the land use committee and transportation for the planning code to create the 100 percent affordable housing bonus program to provide for the bonuses and zoning modifications to establish the procedures for this type of project to have the height limits and the zoning maps for the zoning department. >> same house, same call? this ordinance is passed unanimously next item. >> received from the rules committee item 32 was a chart fifth draft to amend the charter of the city and county of san francisco is require the department of elections to hold an election when there is an
3:22 pm
office empty unless a regularly schedule meeting to provide the mayor should appoint an intern supervisor to fill a vacant with the discerns intensify supervisor is i think eligible to vote in the protective offices within 28 days of the vacancy in november election. >> supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor breed and colleagues we want to commend encourage our support for this charter amendment a couple of times before and the real intent for democracy and we've heard about our democracy here in the united states is based on the separation of powers and that's what f this measure does we're part of board of supervisors we're part of legislative part of government i want to make sure our agency as
3:23 pm
elected officials on the board of supervisors remains the legislative branch and not out of you executive branch the checks and balances we grew up with and respective that somehow in san francisco we have something difference than the checkbooks than any other city in the country with the exemption of the colorado governor makes appointment to fill appointment in the denver city attorney's office and the mayor of philadelphia to fill vacant but according to the local agency formation commission study san francisco is the only place flat administratively branch the mayor didn't serve on government so this is the basic amendment
3:24 pm
that will sure that we're not kevin the power on the appointees and have a full pledge process having elections to fill vacancies this is something that we've seen in recent years when the appointments were made to the board of supervisors that these appointments can be divisive for the district where elections are held and rather than have that defyness so colleagues i'd like to encourage our support and welcoming comments. >> commissioner tang. >> thank you thank you. i'll make similar comments i agree with one portion of that measure before us the requirement that the
3:25 pm
mayor should appoint someone between 21 days is a good thing so this is something i'll stand behind however, i do believe that what we currently have so for fulfilling the vacancies it is current not perfect but as written our policies law for 3 deadlines for possibilities when a vacancy needs to be filled and in my case i was appointed and had to run for office within less than seven months and had to face another election in november i ran for office twice westbound two years after an appointment secondly, i point to our recent histories in the existing mayor, mayor ed lee when was he appointed someone to district 5 in 2012 who lost to
3:26 pm
our current president commissioner borden and that was an appointment made and next my mate supervisor cohen's overcame the appointment in the last november location of 2015 one mayor had a 50 percent success rate we have in place works so i know this measure was put forth it is a more democratic process i ask you is whether it is democratic to appoint someone for a short duration of time that will be prohibited from running in a subsequent election to be taking votes with real votes with impacts and subject to more pressure from the mayor it is a mayoral appointee and no impacts because that person had been leaving and not be subject
3:27 pm
to confirm by voters in the future something else i find undemocrat inningic this person will be in - won't be held to the responsibility of the constituents; right? we don't know if this person will be as responsive to the complaints that come into the office they're not behoven to any election that will be following the other point this person whoever is going to be running in the election to fill the permanent vacancies will be an election whether there are not other measures allowed a special election unless a provision amended into the charter amendment if one one and 80 cases without any other measures
3:28 pm
on there any other offices to be on there the person that will be phil the vacancies will be elected by a small voter turnout as an example in any first right of refusal election there was the searer recorder the treasury and 4 ballot measures on the city attorney the turnout important that general election in november 2013 was 23-29. 3 percent in san francisco i have concerns we'll be possibly or potentially looking for low voter turnout so i find many portions of this measure very undemocratic i believe this is something we have this actually works given the fact that one mayor had made 4 appointment and
3:29 pm
two lost they're concentrated elections and lastly i'll point out that that actually, the last thing madam chair rosales referred to actually found that 63 percent of jurisdictions engaged in other categories meaning that there wasn't any appointment bit an individual or group no sort of consistent practice by other jurisdictions how they vacancies so i'll not support this i believe our current process works so no charter measure to fix something that is again is working. >> thank you supervisor tang. >> supervisor eric mar. >> i disagree with any colleague supervisor tang and support good government like proposes to supervisor avalos i'm the co-sponsor because
3:30 pm
friends of ethics the late to larry bush and others including the civil grand jury go limiting the power we know that is so powerful when people are running for elections but it also prevents the temptation for unimaginable deal making behind closed doors and wanted to say that the lafco study that madam chair rosales did this shows an a mostly we have basic democracy and basis process a good government a no-brainer i urge support. >> supervisor farrell. >> i have a topic the event i thought that supervisor tang was on point that charter amendment
3:31 pm
is a surgeon problem and building the system works well is it so as democratic as it gets and banning people from running from office is not what we should be doing at the board of supervisors i'm not support it. >> thank you supervisor farrell. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you supervisor president london breed and i appreciate the dialogue probably some things not having some place run i'm not sure that make sense but i do think on balance the idea of balboa the power of the inclusive relative to the legislative branch mines there is a measure of a ballot to recall mayor ed lee and i'm against that measure i don't think recalls some should be about undoing elections but acting in malfeasance and anyone that is unhappy about this mayor
3:32 pm
or any mayor for that matter is doing the job the answer not 0 recall something not engaged in malfeasance but make changing to the structure of government so there can be a balance i think this kind of a measure is one of the types of of reforms that brings balance and can address some of the concerns that people have raced it is true that it has worked in some cases with supervisor president london breed and with supervisor peskin but i do believe that the appointment by the mayor is something that is unique and very unusual and welcome to san francisco the vast majority of jurisdictions don't have this the invested power to invest in the voters to from any perspective when in doubt from
3:33 pm
the voters elected officials i'm going to error on the side of giving the voters of ability to select the person i respect the perspective but i want to thank supervisor avalos for bringing up this item forward. >> supervisor peskin. >> thank you, mr. chair i concur with the facial statement that supervisor tang and supervisor campos made relative to the raise that supervisor breed and i ran and, yes i think cust customcy - that really is about the operation of powers if you
3:34 pm
look at what happens in those race or so where the executive branch of government is invested in having taser appointed incumbent it e roads a fair election and it ma ways e roads the integrity i integrity of government i don't want to rehash old history and gracious in defeat but this government behaves like last summer and into the fall it is exactly an argument for the separation of powers had an appointment to a vacant office in the case of district 3 to the vacancy when chiu was elected total assembly all that behavior and the
3:35 pm
trappings would not have occurred whether that was the appropriation of funds, to support the appointed i think incumbent or political behavior in the election where subsidies including did employees of inclusive branch taking time off or on the boxes that bother wouldn't have happened and bring a real free and fair protection i stands down with that charter amendment put that before the voter and let the voters decide. >> supervisor breed. >> i just want to make a few comments i think outside the box i want to, of course, society when i comments with the comments of commissioner chung i think that everything she said was spot on anyone has a reason to take away the power from other mayor it is definitely me
3:36 pm
made a good appointment in district 5 i choose to run as well as other people in the district and the voters made they're concentrated decision ultimately supervisor cohen's is right in his comments same at the same time but politics is a sad game and whether the mayor can appoint it is stilt at dirty incapable at the end of the day this is it is a perfect process but it is a process that has worked for many, many years. >> my two biggest concerns he agree with the fact that the 28 days requirement is a good one but the issue i have with that particular legislation is the fact i believe that is urban democratic to tell someone if you the seat you can't run for the election i have a problem
3:37 pm
with spending nor money on a costing election we don't need to do that no process is ever going to be perfect and oftentimes we're making changes to policies like there are unintended consequences someone will not liquor if it this passes by voters and in the process begins to take shape they'll be complaints and people that are probably wanting to come in and change that process because for some reason may not like the decision the mayor or people like there is disagreements and making a policy just as undemocratic as the mayor's appointment not a step in the right direction so i'll be opposing this item thank you. >> supervisor peskin.
3:38 pm
>> i wanted to say for the record the term loimentsdz are constitutional and upheld by the voters there's no difference between what is proposed in supervisor avalos amendment a term limit we live under. >> thank ysupervisor peskin. >> supervisor avalos. >> i want to think of different ways to look at this thing or changes in the lay or the existing law about appointment and there's nothing ideal and things that work all over the place don't work but what didn't work in 2012 when chris tone was appointed to the board of supervisors she was forced to vote on things and there were serious consequences in the administration wanted her
3:39 pm
to do that i submitted alternate engross receipts tax she supported any version that was challenging the mayors gross of receipts take the mayor's office came down on her like a ton of bricks that happens acquit frequently with the supervisor i believe go when it came time for her election the mayor was not supporting her we get a process that has supervisor peskin said e roads rips and e roads good government orthodontist we have an election this year the if either one of the people running ♪ chamber that will be equivalent the seat will be vacant if we
3:40 pm
don't make changes to the law will be unelected and serve for to years that didn't seem democratic i think we have at the opportunity to put forward rules that are about the separation of power and trusting government colleagues, i urge our support thank you >> thank you supervisor avalos madam clerk call the roll on item 32. >> supervisor farrell no supervisor kim supervisor mar supervisor peskin supervisor tang no. >> supervisor wiener no supervisor yee supervisor avalos supervisor breed no supervisor campos supervisor cowen no. >> there are 6 i's and 5 notices with supervisor farrell and supervisor tang and
3:41 pm
supervisor wiener and supervisor breed that the content the charter amendment will be moved forward. >> call 33 and 35 together. >> to amend the city and county of san francisco to transfer responsibility for the maintenance of street trees to the city and starbucks a special fund primarily to pay for the maintenance and the maintenance ever trees on the unified school district to amend the business code to add a parcel tax to fund the maintenance of the city's street trees on sfusd property to increase the appropriation by the limit of the tax for 4 years from 2016 and affirm the ceqa determination item 35 was referred without 0 recommendation from see rules committee and charter first draft to amend the charter from the city and county of san francisco for the street trees from property owners to the city and under the california
3:42 pm
environmental quality act and at election on november 8, 2016. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you very much madam president colleagues this is an issue we have discussed many, many times since i've been on the board and a topic the discussion san francisco for nearly 40 years back to the late 19 san jose the complete budget process to fund our urban forest specifically here our one and 5 thousand street trees san francisco rather than fund this critical infrastructure and our city trees improve the environment and the health and quality of life in our neighborhoods the city has for almost 40 years neglected this critical asset and instead what san francisco
3:43 pm
has done our city to dump responsibility for street trees on the adjacent property owners for these adjacent property owners to care for the trees who they planted or want the trees or know how to taken care of the trees to affiliation broken sidewalks caused by the trees and they're concentrated roots and to be liable and this requirement is dumped on property owners whether they person the the ceo of a fortune 5 hundred or a protecting councilmember sharp living on social security and this is unfair to property owners and guarantees we'll have a deteriorating urban forest and in fact, we have a shrinking urban forest we've learned over
3:44 pm
40 years trees don't farewell in the budget process not extradite against critical needs like public health and youth services since i've taken office for almost 6 years now i've been working closely with friends of universities with our planning department with the public works with viral groups with park and neighborhood groups with various property owner groups to try to kracht an actual solution to actually solve this problem and that's what we have before us today a measure that will actually solve the problem not kick the can down the road not require the city do something without funding that is simple that requires it mandates that the city and county of san francisco take back all one and
3:45 pm
5 thousand street trees that the city be responsible for maintaining those trees that the city be responsible for maintaining sidewalk damage caused by this trees which is the elsewhere overwhelming majority of the damage and this measure creates dedicated permanent lockbox funding to actually discharge this responsibility if we require the city to take back the trees without the dedicated funding the result will not be a surprise the trees will not building accurately take care of so this provides the lockbox funding be a might have parcel tax where small homeland security are pay little and commercial officers or owners will pay more and sets aside a
3:46 pm
department of the emergency management funding to the charge for this responsibility this miff this is years of progress between myself and the friends of the urban forest and the department of public works i - we don't have a list of community motions we've attended to present but not surprise any if it exceeded one hundred we held multiple large stakeholders round tables late last year and early this year for feedback and craft a solution we came up with a solution working with our neighborhood groups and environmental groups with friends of the urban forest and with the parks groups and various property owner groups the apartment association and
3:47 pm
the small property owners and the realtors to make sure that everyone was at the table we have this today a well vetted and crafted fair progressive measure that will shore up and invest in our urban forest in san francisco i hope that we will send this measure to the voters i was optimistic that we were going to have a majority of support for this measure i was existed about day there are a lot of people in the neighborhood in san francisco who are existed with we have the opportunity to fix this problem people are really existed about this in neighborhoods throughout the city today at that moment i'm confident we have the votes to place this on the ballot so colleagues he move that we continue this item one week so we can continue the dialogue and i hope have an opportunity
3:48 pm
to send this important and thoughtfully measure to the voters so the voters can decide whether to solve this problem once and for all. >> thank you, supervisor wiener supervisor avalos and. >> thank you. i want to thank supervisor wiener for his great work on putting together the parcel tax about trees and creating tree fund that is something that i have been watching and hoping with heavy since 2009 when we decided person going to start of relinquishment program giving the homeowners responsibility for the trees in front of they're concentrated homes i drafted any own charter amendment he did so i felt that we have so many revenue measures going to the ballot there is a
3:49 pm
parcel tax the city college board of trustees put forward i don't know that make sense that we load up the ballot with competing i think that is the case xooets revenue measures that's what we have with the parcel tax to parcel tax quoting what is more important city college or trees well it is hard to say because it is super important but another tax on the ballot a bonds in the unified school district for things we'll put the sales tax and a real estate transfer tax on the ballot suddenly it looks full with a lot of things and voters are being asked to do a lot so we can do a lot of good work and craft good policy but when it comes to voter approval that is
3:50 pm
not a sure thing i think with that with our budget we'll be voting on today so i am also considering that we move tree measure forward to take that responsibility for trees back to the city leave it don't leave it up to property owner and property owners to be decide when they vote this november. >> i think outside the box as worthy thing we can't load up the ballot with that many revenue measures and in overall the decision should have not been made not decide to move this burden i don't use burden when it comes to tax measures but a burden on pertains we require them to take care of the trees they didn't plant in front
3:51 pm
of they're concentrat homes. >> i like supervisor wiener's measure we don't a good job work with the folks and the urban forests council and the neighborhood groups but i don't think that it make sense to move this all the other measures going forward despite how well, that was put together and ask that the utilize the carbon tax in anticipation for the support of tree program get called and continued one week as well with the parcel take the trees the charter amendment for the trees and this tax it's the utilities tax. >> m call item 59.
3:52 pm
>> yes. i'll turn to 59 without recommendation for the ordinance amending the business tax code to impose a utility tax on persons using the electrical energy into the city equal to 2.5 percent for the exemptions including an exemption for persons using electrical energy from certain renewable energy resources and utilities tax on persons using gas in the city for 2.5 percent subject to the appropriation for november 8, 2016, at an election to be held. >> commissioner lee has made a motion to continue item 33 to the meeting of july 26th
3:53 pm
seconded by supervisor tang and supervisor avalos has made a motion to continue item 35 and 59 to the meeting of july 26th is there a second. >> seconded by supervisor mar supervisor avalos any further comments okay supervisor mar. >> i wanted to say i support the continuance to give us time to look at the measures i'm not sure how much the carbon will raise supervisor wiener has made a progressive fax but all the items on this commissioners, on that motion november ballot how they'll impact each other i think that allows us that time to think about the fund streams he know that the friends of the urban forest have a progressive tax i'm one should from supervisor yee and supervisor
3:54 pm
avalos how the funding stream jive with the need for relinquishing the trees and the expanding the city's urban forest and campus that the friends the urban forest and supervisor wiener have advocated for for years i'm looking forward for the discussion of next week i believe that supervisor wiener mentioned that keep that in mind the tree canopy as mayor newsom began years ago was important we really lapsed in how we doing it and moving forward as a city is critical i want to say i'm looking at how the various parcel tax and others what about more progressive not putting the burden on small homeowners and property owners or rent in the city that's why i feel that madam chair rosales has progressive values with that and
3:55 pm
hoping the carbon tax has o considerations i'm supportive of continuance. >> thank you supervisor mar and supervisor yee. >> thank you supervisor president london breed. >> first of all, i really want to thank all the supervisors that have been involved with that discussion in particular supervisor wiener. >> and i will - i agree with those that thought we made a bad move in 2009 when the city decide to relinquish the trees to property owners almost 4 years that's all i hear why is this done i can't afford is a so on so that's why - i've
3:56 pm
introduced legislation for us to consider for a regular process of legislating to take over the trees as soon as possible with temporary funding and so finding a revenue source to take over the trees for the long run is important to me but at the same time i'm stuck about how to balance all of this i think many, many of the revenue measures that we are suggesting that the voters look at in in and of itself or by itself has a lot of merit but when you start putting them together and something else has already rattled off the tax measures how much do we ask our citizens to take on at this point i know i won't be supporting all
3:57 pm
the revenue measures i'm trying my best to look at which ones i may support that can do as itch as possible but this is a tough call for us i think every single one of us to support every single revenue measure we'll put on so for me great continue it but at the same time, we vote for the rest of the agenda items and see what we pass out ever hear i will take into consideration in regards to whether or not a particular revenue measure that we might want to put on the ballot actually be enough to fund some of the things we're asking is to be funded. >> thank you supervisor yee supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam president i look forward to the dialogue
3:58 pm
over the next week peculiar i do just want to clarify a few things first of all, in terms of tree relinquishment program i thought it phase was in 2011 or 2009 was recent that was not the defining of a reliberty program the city has been dumping trees prosecute that lasted phase a majority of street trees in san francisco were the responsibility of pertains so what started 5 or 6 years ago was a terrible and irresponsible public policy towards street trees in san francisco and if i thought we could just urban do what happens 5 or 6 years and that would be - i'll support supervisor yee's public
3:59 pm
works code amendment but i know and you know i think everyone in the city knows that is not what will happen this is been going on for 40 years almost 40 years with the city withdrawing it's will basic responsible of caring for street trees that's why friends of urban forest was created in the 19 san francisco's so for the irresponsible step by the city and county of san francisco an irresponsible step not reversed but sledder over 40 years and telling the voters or public we'll pass legislation or after we pass the charter amendment requiring the city to take back the trees and sidewalks it is a false promise it is telling the voters we'll do that we know that is not going to happen yes people will no longer be frustrated they
4:00 pm
refs a notice to take care of the trees but frustrated why that tree is dying in front of my house and the sidewalk is pushed up where is the city you know what they'll look at the budget and see the small amount of money that the board of supervisors and mares are employment for the care of the trees it is absolutely a false promise to the voters of san francisco we work hard and such a projected manner to come up with a responsible manner to take back the trees and sidewalks and created dedicated lockbox funds so not happy again dimming trees and our urban forest to day. >> thank you, supervisor wiener and we know that before the board that are 3 measures

4:05 pm
board of supervisors received a strong and clear mandate from our constituents they're demanding nor accountability and transparency when it comes to law enforcement you heard it today in during the conformations we can respective and honor our police officers those that put they lives on the line of duty everyday but simultaneously be disturbed by the shootings we've witnessed over the last couple of years residents deserve to know the police standards where use of force and officer misconduct and matched it with community values whether the system holds officer accountable or not i believe we can and hold police accountable
4:06 pm
in ways that extend beyond the individual complaints by focusing on the police department systematic problems within pd before they arrive to dysfunctional and systemic levels in the last year and a half with that, i want to take a moment and recognize the tremendous movement forward that our department has come i want to recognize the leadership of the current police commission and the past leadership of greg suhr that spurred on the reform today and take a formatting moment to thank i internship chief chaplain and understanding the seriousness and the entering connectionness this has in many communities
4:07 pm
but this won't happen in the board of supervisors don't stand together and take acts on real solutions and continue to work to bring about real police reform now is it so come to my attention maybe motioned that relative to this charter amendment to fold it into the public advocate charter meantime that will completely, completely work to dismantle the work that many people in the room fought for the young people in the chamber today, the naacp and various coalitions you've heard from and seen we can't even begin to have
4:08 pm
this conversation we can't even politicalize brown and black lives to simply satisfy completely unrelated interests all across the country too many families are growing at the loss of they loved ones whether their civilian or law enforcement officers we want to begin to heal in the city and put forwards solutions to relay police reforms this year is 5 hundred killings by police officers across the country most of that them have been investigated and justified but something wrong in this country when people can be killed with ini impunity not only a problem of training but oversight per we have an opportunity to model the work we've done with our police department for the entire country that is critical we
4:09 pm
stand be together with the charter amendment on the ballot it provides a much noted oversight we must place it on the ballots as its own a stand alone measure to allow the voters it to you or to allow they voices to be heard today, i ask you to think about the videos from across the country and the people that are in this room fighting for skwus and real solutions and those families grieving at the loss of they son or daughter and i ask you move the chapter amendments urb amendments forward. >> supervisor campos. >> colleagues he want to support that but not a a stand alone measure it should be
4:10 pm
incorporated into our public advocates we center two measures that are sierra club covering the same topic they compliment each of very well and to me we should be not loading up the ballot that's the theme for this afternoon but thinking how we make sure that we are having a ballot that has clear as possible but having many measures often about the same thing makes our ballot less clear and our duty to make sure we are giving choices and strong choices for the voters to approve i know that there i expect there are votes to support the public advocates position especially with the changes to the companionships to accommodate many concerns of colleagues and to merge those together ask
4:11 pm
we call items 78 and 79 along with this one supervisor president london breed to have a discussion about those measures together, of course, i think that the measure the police accountability is ready to community-based today and discussed it we'll have to consider that but suggest we call those items table one of them and allow amendments to be made to what we had exempted with the public advocate before the rules committee merge with the department the police officer accountability and take it as a community as a whole. >> seeing no other names on the roster, supervisor wiener. >> i ask that we call items 78 and 79. >> those are two ballot measures this doesn't require and continuance not related i'm
4:12 pm
not going to call that ballot measure. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you very much mayor pro tem stirs or first in support of this ballot measure item 37 to strengthen the office of citizens complaints to rename it and strengthen it to provide it with - we know that has at the heart of police, huh? publ confidence in the police they thought out in an unbiased manner this measure will help to increase the public confidence it is important it is its own idea it is itself own subject stands on its own i don't think
4:13 pm
that should be moergd and lump into with another measure that frankly goes dramatically beyond what this is trying to accomplish the other measure creates a new protective position takes various executive departments and mergers them away from the mayor and people some people like it and people don't like it is, it is controversial measure this measure item 37 i don't believe it is controversial it will receive overwhelm support from this board and the voters of san francisco and to merge it into an unrelated measure that is going to be controversial both for this board and the ballot does that make sense and does a disservice for police reform i'd
4:14 pm
like to see us vote on the merits and it sends a clear measure to the voters and i'm confident the voters will responds cuisine with strong support. >> thank you supervisor wiener supervisor kim. >> thank you. i want to thank supervisor cowen and her office for her leadership on the charter amendment it is incredibly thoughtful and one of the substantive measures that had bring affordability and transparency and also increase the trust with the community with our police department i think that many of the measures that are put in here in regards to the budget reporting and also insuring staffing to provide adequate investigation will be a commitment we've not
4:15 pm
provided adequate resources for the government oversight over the police and i want to thank everyone that worked on this measure including the police department to insure we are boston our relationships with our community and really providing for the things the community members or so asking for this is a big step in the right direction and i want to recognize sxoelg for her leadership and impressed with the entire charter and look forward it on the back ballot whether here or part of public advocates charter amendment that will be going forward to voters. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor breed and just two points i again want to thank supervisor cowen for her leadership and continuing to be you know a leader when we
4:16 pm
talk about occ and this measure out of respective to the colleague especially, as as sponsor it is fair we give a vote here and right now on this measure, and, secondly, to echo some previous comment i don't know that is an important measure we agree that the vast majority san franciscans will agree on why we'll risk putting it in with another mile-an-hour whatever - if you view this as an important issue and something you want to stand behind no reason not to support it as a stand alone measure. >> thank you supervisor campos madam chair rosales. >> i'd like to refer this item to larnlt in the agenda
4:17 pm
supervisor cowen. >> i am glad you're trying to politicalize this incredibly important life or death great job supervisor campos that is why we need this to be separate supervisor kim why stand alone public advocate may or may not passion because the next time in election in 2018 possibly june we will if it doesn't pass we'll not have an opportunity to reform and continue the momentum to move forward for the loaf of change we're in agreement voters 84 percent transparency is important we voted on the board of supervisors and yet here we are we're sitting back and allowing the dirtyness of politics to touch that incredibly thoughtful and pub
4:18 pm
substantive piece of legislation i mean this is absolutely critical we don't have time members of this body stood supervisor mar has stood with us in the black lives matter and been supportive of police reform and yet we can't sit back and let this two have not thoughts come together public advocates should occ be folded in the public advocates that's fine i'm asking to allow the voters to decide bring this measure to the voters as a stand alone they'll have two option if they want a public advocate vote for that or a stand alone but role this whole conversation about the bottle about accountability and letting the voters decide supervisor avalos that wrecks with hypocrisy and incredibly sad how many people must come to

4:20 pm
person to oversee not only the police reforms but the other measures i present but i've heard from the 57 to other efforts in the city is an independent oversight body i think the publicly advocate choufdz that i appreciate the creation of a new department but the way forward for true definition and the community - i'm supportive and my hope you and the coalitions work together for the independent oversight necessary with the police commission and the okay and other agencies as well. >> madam clerk call the roll. >> i've i'm not recognized.

4:24 pm
forward if not they get killed or your ballot measure is merged into someone else's ballot measure and losses it's own consistence that is brewing for awhile i want to call that out there is a reality what is happening right now it is up until a if you days ago unthinkable that any member of the board to suggest for a minute as something as important and non-controversial as this police accountability measure will be forcingly overrule the objection. of author merged into another amendment this is out arraign this is happening that is what this board of supervisors has now come to a majority that decides they'll flex they muscle if you're not on they team our ballot measure is dead no matter how important
4:25 pm
that is what the happening the majority has ever right in the world to do whatever with whatever measure that's the reality happening right now at the board of supervisors and frankly those measures are not evaluated on they merits but based on the politics is any wonder the public approval rating of the board of supervisors continues to go down is it not okay. >> thank you, supervisor wiener and supervisor cowen on the continuance. >> i'm definitely against the continuance no reason to continue it is the facts are laid in committee that is silly game that had been played i support occ but in the team of a maker advocate i'm the maker lowell high school when it comes to ballot time to vote you remember who stood with the community and supports this

4:27 pm
fund into transportation and homeless needs here in the city of san francisco and all of a sudden because of a measure around our tent encampments that a number of us put on the ballot all of a sudden they horse trading or attempting to say they'll not support a sales tax our budget was predator can do addressed supported by all people we've talked about in the board of supervisors and talked about before the budget process josh the sales tax supervisor cowen's and measure right now, tree measure as has nothing to do with with anyone else those are expanded alone measures so try to make a link it is the same thing as having my children come to me and say we'll not do

4:29 pm
politics we're playing and when measures get to the board of supervisors the committee has a sneaky underhanded way of making amendment to what we're trying to legislate on is hypocrisy i'm calling it out we should give out ticket for hypocrisy. >> remind the members pursuant the conduct of supervisors may not impugn the board members please. thank you, madam clerk. >> supervisor wiener. >> i want to i don't know why supervisor avalos is saying about that comment, in fact, i've supported supervisor kim's city college measure i didn't try to forcefully change and

4:32 pm
supervisors to lower the vote by which the board of supervisors may regret the sfmta before you get from 7 to 6 and make the relayed changes implementing the items on the election of november. >> supervisor yee. >> i'll keep this simple it is i wanted to put in the ballot to give the voters a chance to see if they want to consider a split appointment for the mta commission and the city planning commission that's the major issue here and we also know that mta budget has been increasing and conditions to there oil hopeful that speak of the ballot measures had continue to support increase in transportation as most of us want to see happen the other major issue that i'm
4:33 pm
asking the voters to consider would be to bring how we vote on the budget for mta similar to despite every other department we've looked at from the 7 that circling digest to pass the budget item to 6. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you. i want to thank supervisor yee that is something that it its been a long time coming and my office worked on a similar ballot measure a number of years ago and at that time, unfortunately deal was cut supposedly to reform the mta without a ballot measure if you
4:34 pm
ask the people of the city and county of san francisco if those reforms will have actually been real and become i think grenade in how this action operates that most san franciscans will say that that reform has not happened that is about giving every rider of public transit and every resident of this city that is an exacted by the actions of municipal transportation agency more say in how that agency operates for accountable and transparent i'm happy to support. >> thank you, supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam president colleagues, i will not be supporting this measure today many years the board of supervisors had significant control over and melted but with muni and we saw the results of a
4:35 pm
deteriorating transit system and all sorts of problems dramatic under investment and divert the funds the voters weighed in and took control of muni away from the board of supervisors by creating the municipal transportation agency as a semi independent agency and combining the muni and traffic and substantial pursuant to a measure that supervisor peskin supported the taxicab commission into the mta and the goal to coast create one agency a purview over the integrated transportation all over the place prop e it created the matt restricted the ability
4:36 pm
of board of supervisors to meddle in the budget of mta by creating a 7 threshold to regret the budget and setting other rules the board will intervene in serious circumstances this measure addition in addition to splitting the appointment makes it much, much easier and attempting for the board of supervisors to meddle in the mta's bucket that i don't not going to be to the benefit of transportation in san francisco i think we'll quick go back to the bad old days where the mta is not basic transportation on good transportation policy but rather than on the political whims of the board of supervisors i don't support that we have so many transportation
4:37 pm
challenges and need to be moving in a positive direction this measure is not positive i can't remember 8 years ago the voters overwhelmingly not close overwhelmingly rejected a similar measures that split the board of supervisors appointment and weighed in i understand if you lose an election by a little bit going the second time but the voters might have 65, 35 and go back and include the ability the board of supervisors to meddle in the mta's budget is not a good thing i'll be voting no. >> thank you, supervisor wiener supervisor yee. >> you know there's a lot of things that have changed i'm one that is not afraid to make changes and be more transparency we could use the word

4:50 pm
that continues to tell us to go away and disappear and one of the best things we can do to make sure this community is never invisible is to understand who we are and where we are and collecting data is critical to doing that in our health and human services in san francisco we collect data around gender and ethnicity and age and so forth but we don't collect consistent data around sexual orientation and gender identity that requires a number of city departments and the nonprofits they fund ask simply ask the question for people that are assessing the services in other words, where they're a lgbt no one is required to provide the data is it so volunteer y that's

5:05 pm
item 75 was considered by the land use and transportation at a regular meeting on july 18th and forwarded as a committee report this is an ordinance for the planning code to allow for the construction of accessory between as secondary in-law unit units in areas that allow rebates as it applies to adu and the ceqa determination and make the appropriate findings. >> supervisor farrell thank you supervisor president london breed colleagues those two measures with called together supervisor cohen'ss measure as well as my measure and supervisor scott wiener regarding side adu's terror to the dialogue to step in a different direction we came to a compromise and thank you,
5:06 pm
supervisor wiener and supervisor peskin and obviously the housing crisis is front and center in san francisco and adu's are significant tool in the tool shed to alleviate this issue on the near term and less contention with the construction in the neighborhoods and the proposal in front of us have the potential to create tens of thousands of new units in our city a few things to highlight our proposal together and i'll talk about procedurally i'm voting for and supervisor peskin will weigh in allowing the buildings with 5 or more units and will cap adu's in building with less than 40 units and didn't permit the adu's with 90 no-fault eviction and no adu for
5:07 pm
a short-term rental we removed some components around storefronts and made sure that we alleged upon a minimum square feet size we talked about yesterday in committee and we will hold it at three hundred for a san francisco and 5 for a one bedroom we always wanted to make sure we are not exposing any vacancy controls that compromise is the right direction and i want to acknowledge supervisor wiener and then commissioner christensen had done somewhat similar certainly in terms of adu's in their own districts last year the ground work as supervisor peskin introduced this year's and years ago and not brought to a vote butable to bring it together today so why again, i think that is important housing policy i want to thank everyone for they work and colleagues we hope you support
5:08 pm
it two measures in front of u.s.s. some will require amendments and commissioner peskin might have an idea how to deal with >> thank you supervisor farrell supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president first, let me aid the policy and let me talk about the politics particularly on this contentious day at the board of supervisors as a matter of policy a piece of legislation that's been a its been a long time coming that larger than any one supervisor is actually starltsz decades ago with supervisor terrance dealing with in those days the third rail of san francisco politics in-law units and later on was championed by mabel and tom ammiano looked it in 2002 i
5:09 pm
introduced legislation that was actually, it changed from the previous to supervisors legislation previous supervisors were all dealing with the issue of existing in-law unit legalization this was very, very contentious on the west side of san francisco i understood in 2002 in incentive virgos new in-law units it was a contention ceqa appeal which interesting enough that board or that board on a 6 to 5 vote rejected the ceqa appeal but then one particular member of the board hadn't had it we didn't votes on that underlying and my predecessor and successor david chiu trod and then commissioner
5:10 pm
christensen my immediate predecessors policy discussions and involving the way the electorate has dealt with this the politics of this board has changed i'm delighted the votes are here today for this measure and work has begun we actually need to incentivize with some affirmative action by the city the creation of those units pacific gas & electric this legislation today is not enough i think that we need to create a program modeled on our mandatory guess seismically retrofit we reach out to the thousands of property owners that can avail themselves of the toll and show them is it so economically beneficial to them and help them
5:11 pm
tell the jury we should streamline the process and make process improvements and dbi and planning so i'm hopeful we will work together this year and there to mark those process improvements and watch that program and end up not what a few hundred hundred units about any thousand in the years and most to come thank you to supervisor wiener i said to him in committee copying his caps was the highest intimidation of flattery and let me say as a matter of land use land use planning on the supervisorial lines doesn't marnls in many districts if you have a uniformly residential district it might make sense but
5:12 pm
the district i recommend has half of downtowns as you can see and fisherman's wharf and doing this kind of legislation by supervisorial dpangs i'm delighted we're getting a unaware away from supervisorial district and talked about the politics because the rap on the board i served on was and some of this was perception and some realty we remember not together and civil and the wrap on the board that got elected in 2008, a board of colleagues the pathway to those two pieces of legislation that are before you the compromise that was forged babe in a way that actually quite frankly i want to be honest was not civil
5:13 pm
generally when someone introduces a piece of legislation in march and has trouble with it that he significant to the sponsor amendments rather than going to the ballot we've resolved all that i think that today is a good day to show we, work across the aisle but it also i think that a sign that many of the fights we are expressing today could have and should have been resolved in the process so i'm quite certain that while our policy concerns about all the other things come from the legitimate placed they ways those things can have been solved we all live in the building and know what the side conversations have been it's unfortunate that all of us couldn't do relative to the
5:14 pm
other measures what supervisor farrell and i were able to do and i think that that can actually be done i won't get don't have another day like this at the board of supervisors i for one was delighted to come to a board that prides it's in collaboration. >> with that, supervisor tang has agreed to do which is this. >> you don't think so i don't know what i'm augusto. >> exactly right supervisor farrell has amendments to conform the legislation i have some amendments tool conform i passed those amendments out to all of you and make a motion as to item 6 is to adapt those amendments all of which were
5:15 pm
discussed in committee yesterday and the previous mondays so i'd like to make a motion to adopt those i believe that supervisor farrell has amendments and two identical piece of legislative and in the spirit of collaboration i'll take that coin and supervisor farrell agree if it is heads it had been item 61 rae tails item 75 that move forward. >> supervisor peskin a maid a motion to move. >> colleagues we'll take that without objection. without objection they pass anonymously. >> supervisor wiener. >> i'm defer for supervisor farrell to speak for me with the permission. >> other supervisors have not
5:16 pm
been called i have to call on him when i'm done. >> that's fine that is an existing day as supervisor peskin mentioned i mean this was actually beyond the third rail that was legalizing the tens of thousands of existing illegal units that was the battle grounds for decades and decades of people living in them seal families and whether to legalize that's the fights i don't know about that until 15 years ago and allowing adding new in-law units and so this goes really beyond the third rail supervisor peskin the legislation was not able to get a majority so i agree with citywide is the way to go but by
5:17 pm
the way of context we had no ability to pass legislation to allow for new in-law units and supervisor peskins legislation that was citywide failed so when i waited into this area wherever it was four or five years ago did so by the way of a pilot program not q with adjudicate 8 but the castro and got a lot of support and passed out that legislation all over the place when the sky didn't fall we extend to to da to all of district 8 and at the time i put out the challenge to colleagues, we want to extend that and hopefully citywide commissioner christensen took the bait and in a good way and extended to district 3 and now we're extending it statewide. >> so i'm glad that it is a good direction and shows where
5:18 pm
we are as the city we can't afford to do things in terms of housing the way we've done them not the way of conservation in louis for new housing so i think the political landscape has shifted and it is interesting that in committee and the hearings we've he would say citywide adu legislation there was this in any out right opposition more of a dispute about rear yard and we resolved that made clear we value the rear yards but that in and of itself year ago this legislation would have sparked world war iii and didn't come close i want to note the prevention i have not just in district 8 but also a much broader smoefk adu
5:19 pm
allowing the people going through the seismically retrofits to add as many units into the building a multi building we eliminate the caps and we went beyond district 8 and i want to thank supervisor farrell and supervisor peskin for mincing the intibltd within the legislation bruce because the seismic program is working and permits are pulled one issue i do want to raise we had a lengthy discussion the square footage minimum and i know that supervisor and supervisor farrell and my legislation fog minimum just the citywide minimum square footage and supervisor peskin put a minimum of three hundred and 50 feet for a studio hundred for a one bedroom and committee i thought was a place holder reduced it 5 hundred for a one
5:20 pm
bedroom i don't think this is the rights approach i don't have a problem with a minimum but i think that the minimum for the one bedroom is too high first of all, as i pointed out yesterday, i live i happen to live in a 4 hundred and 90 square feet bedroom it is more than enough space for me commissioner peskin i'll be happy to give you an inspection and a nice a place to live in. >> i want to make sure there's enough head room. >> there is i think that 5 hundred square feet store a one bedroom is too how what will happen 4 hundred and 50 square feet that he of they want to build a one bedroom
5:21 pm
knock down the wall and build a large to and give junior one bedroom and i i don't want the city to be micro managing that so i'll suggest to me i think having a minimum of three hundred square feet period is the right way to go rather than go trying to distinguish the one bedroom or if people think this is important to have a separate square feet for one bedroom have it be a lower maybe three hundred and 350s or 375 for a one bedroom that's the original concern about this legislation. >> so through the chair to supervisor peskin. >> you have a question. >> i have a question and supervisor peskin supervisor wiener has a question. >> my question since we had this dialogue yesterday and we put those numbers with the
5:22 pm
thinks we'll revisit it today, i know the planning department has produced new statistics in terms of the pipeline projects that will be impacted apart from the pipeline we can obviously if he wanted to grandfather in the pipeline i want to go forward with the program and see that succeed and a 5 hundred square feet for one bedroom is not going to help the program but hinder it. >> supervisor cohen's. >> thank you madam president through the president to supervisor wiener i've looked at the numbers for the hundreds and 3 of the hundred and 5 units in the pipeline a small snapshot and i am prepared to do the following which is to have an uncodified section of the legislation which says the flapt show a prepare and submit on the size of the
5:23 pm
proposed to be constructed pursuant to this planning code the report shall, recorded no later than than the adaptation and include the size data on the adu's constructed or permitted from the effective date of the 207 and any procedure that include our legislation supervisor wiener up to 12 months of this board and that means in approximately 16 months from day nor data and be able to legislate between now and then why not remove we have two versions of 3 hundreds and 550 and three hundred and a 5 hundred acceleration innocent take out those numbers and have the report preempt adapt this uncodified section number 9 and precede according. >> there's no minimum of the
5:24 pm
generosity anytime and revisits the issue when the report comes out. >> yes. just to be clear the planning department numbers show that out of one and 3 proposed units in the pipeline only 3 of them fall under the three hundred feet we've discussed yesterday in committee. >> i think another eight or ten that is sounds like a superb approach. >> i'll hand that amendment out and read the other amendments into the read into the record. >> colleagues direct your remarks to each through the chair supervisor yee. >> supervisor yee. >> thank you. i appreciate the colleague outlet i want to
5:25 pm
say that for the district i represent integrity 7 we've probably have maybe the thought 11 district maybe a third but no less than the fourth in terms of the units that are being developed for the last ten years and continue to develop and the approach i've taken i've tried to balance the neighborhood characteristics with the need of city in terms of the housing and for example, lives balboa i've been consistent with the way i vote on these particular items where i feel liquor it will impact the neighborhood characteristics
5:26 pm
and so in staying consistent i will not be supporting the this particular item that reason and but i do appreciate the efforts that everybody is made to work together on this - >> thank you supervisor yee supervisor mark farrell. >> thank you supervisor breed and appreciate the comments from the chair. >> excuse me - before i recognize you supervisor farrell commissioner peskin just for clarity the amendments you've previously made not through the conversation between you and supervisor wiener but initially when you first spoke i summaries that was for both measures was that accurate. >> no madam president some of these particular amendments are already in the measure that is item number 75. >> it is there a motion to rescind the vote on the
5:27 pm
amendments i basically amended both items with any comments. >> oh. >> so a motion to amend commissioner peskin and seconded by commissioner farrell can we take that without objection? without objection the item is no longer amended and we're going to propose our specific amendments not including what you've discussed with our item 6 is and so is that a motion >> madam president for the benefit of the city attorney i rise to say that we will delete on page 5 line 34 to page 6 line 11 and replace with the following language that sauce for the purposes of this provision the building envelope should be in a room built on columns decks except for decks
