that they didn't connect with the community they didn't, you know, easy into developing a relationship with folks. and i'll tell you why in 2006 pz&e started dismantling their power plant i was part of that and the folks who lived in the bayview hunter point ear never saw the herself responses facility. there was no violation for them to side they had to cut through a fence or cut around the security to become a part of the scene at herself responses head. it was just recently that the poster came and did a fabulous
job of remaking herself reopens head. i want to express the importance of making sure that you understand that if this - if by the hand this park over to thisable corporation that's the final barrier because there is no richz that any of the folks here have be able to put together not leverage not the bay institute. they keep saying san francisco city college i spent more 7, 8, 9 working with the city college more years and in fact, i was part of the relevant committee to erect the new fabricate i specifically asked him what have
you authorize conditional to use in this process and specifically he has not. and neither has the board is it's a good trick to come in here and say you know what we're doing f that but ledge built that building to serve the bayview hunter community and i hope as i send out my thoughts of leo when he started with local 10 when we said to me you know what it's a humility and i'm talking about humility how do we do something that's right. you've got all those great pieces but you're missing the contact to the community. thank you for your time

parentheses is not part of the proposal to live up to the full vision of being a classroom having a tenant that has the technical capacity to manage operations as well as do the programming is really crucial i'm here to support the bay institute and city college in the proposal. as we know with the history of the viral movement it's notes alters been inclusive. it's utmost importance the continually of san francisco that as an institution in our city that bends folks and people of color especially in southeast san francisco that they have fro reign and hired folks in the
community liquor carol line and charles with peggy leading the way. they've created an inclusive community at the eco center. it's hard to still stay connected who not been an employee but i'm draunl back to the eco center and wanted to support it because of the work that conditional has exempted. to you definitely second the comments earlier about the vision and commitment and follow through and am in support of their proposal >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. islam's katherine i support the
