you approve this, you recommend the approval of this resolution. supervisor chu: thank you very much. questions from the committee? supervisor dufty: i just want to say i'm happy to sponsor this measure, and i want to thank the conservation corps for their great work. supervisor chu: thank you. members of the public who wish to speak on item 3? >> good morning, supervisors. i have lived in san francisco for 50 years. i would like to speak in support of this item, but i would also like to add a comment i think is relevant in regards to the conservation corps. i think the conservation corps should be used for a more important project, the trimming and removal or assistance of those two projects, of dangerous trees that have been previously marked by i think part and ran
-- park and rec and other agencies. i think a lot of those trees are still standing, just waiting for gravity to fall. i would like to suggest that john mclaren park be checked out. there has already been one death with subsequent city liability payment, and also, i think that sunset boulevard and the presidio drive should also be checked, even though i have noticed that some of the trees have been trimmed in the two areas, but still, when i drive on those and other areas in the city, i feel that the maintenance has been kind of substandard. i do notice that in some of those areas, there have been very nice new trees planted, but three, four, five, six months later, there has been an obvious growth of weeds,
especially on portola drive, which is interesting because it is it in a fairly affluent neighborhood. anyway, i think it is noteworthy that san francisco conservation corps do this kind of work because it is not only giving them a chance to show what they can do but also would help park and rec eliminate trees before the city as more possible payouts for maps of injury, since according to what i have seen in those areas, those trees are fairly big, and it would not take very much of a tree to fall in order to hurt someone. supervisor chu: thank you. are there any other members of the public who wish to speak on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. i do appreciate the member of the public who did speak on the issue of public safety and about safety in many of our facilities. with past issues, the city was
able to secure several million dollars in order to work on some of the repair work on pulling down and save trees across our recreation park facility. we recommend -- we recognize that is something that needs, sterne growth, and we work with the parts department to remove the most highly rated trees from those sites, so thank you very much for that comment. seeing that we have close public comment, do we have a motion? supervisor avalos: motion to approve. supervisor chu: is that a motion to approve this item and send it forward with a committee report? without objection. >> item three will be before the full board august 10, 2010. item four, resolution authorizing the san francisco recreation and park department to accept and expend a grant administered by the california state library california cultural and historical and, in the amount of $500,000 for palace of fine arts historical
landscape and park improvement. >> this item again is a grand valued at $500,000 -- grant value of $500,000. it will go to improve the historical landscape and park improvement. the project is also in construction and is expected to be substantially complete in october. the recreation and park is requesting your recommendation for approval of the resolution. supervisor chu: thank you very much. are there any questions? why don't we open it up for public comment. are there any members of the public who wish to speak on item four? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> move this item with recommendation as a committee report. supervisor chu: we have a motion to move this item forward as a committee report.
