6:00 pm
how are we're going to transmit we said it here we said the peripheries to collaborate. >> if you can make that part of our motion and have a recommendation that the board of supervisors consider that. >> i would accept that as you know, a recommendation to the supervisors to study citywide. >> thanks. >> into the seconder. >> the simplify is it is the planning department initiated by the supervisors so it has to be first a discussion a staff represents to the supervisors just as a discussion we're having today whether or not other supervisors are interested and we'll pick it up as a separate matter the supervisor is made of by the people if the
6:01 pm
district. >> i understand but it needs to be an official way to say a citywide question would be fine. >> my pd is that the commission would like there to be more analysis to do this citywide and asking the supervisors in reality the supervisors b will ask us to do the analysis but it is also engaging their personal preference of what they want to include it i see no harm in making the recommendations to the board it to engage their preferences and incorporate such analysis if necessary into our work. >> i've worded it that captures that spirit. >> commissioner moore if i may this requires a different discussion i want to see the department that recommended this
6:02 pm
in the first place i can't decide on the recommendation and diego sanchez we believe that the arresting cascades mechanic devices the existing controls over three-quarters of the mcd were based on on the uses of the 1980s it is changed we see those at low impact recreational use we see that the community that span metropolitan regions are formerly the communities around the use if we can ged get ahead of you without coming back to you, we he can get here and approve it all. >> to reinforce that from the 80's those are considered high impact uses because of the activities it is completely different now we don't see them
6:03 pm
deft from retail use so that's why we are recommending citywide. >> so i heard that the maker of the motion was amenable to the secondary. >> depends on how you phrase the recommendation. >> as i heard the motion it is to dpaupt a recommendation for approval as amended to limit the amendment for only the upper market street and ct with the recommendation to the board to expand it citywide and to continue the discussion for possible citywide i'm more comfortable with the open-ended type of - >> i'm sorry to - >> continue the discussions. >> to consider a that's correct it's a different meaning and
6:04 pm
seeing the discussion of the legislation. >> commissioner johnson. >> thanks i know yeah, that gets us there before now we were talking about the use of words analysis that is specific important the planning department it is not necessary if we didn't pass it today there's no analysis so i agree that it one thing about the motion it sounds like if we are recommending supervisor wiener's legislation that we're n reprimanding it with no modification that makes it styling there are no substantial changes to supervisor wiener's legislation. >> okay. thank you. >> i know excuse me. rarp through the chair there was a modification of the definition what an accessory use not the
6:05 pm
other entertainment but considered a remarkably game. >> okay yes. >> thank you so commissioners there is a motion and second to death penalty a recommendation of approval with modifications to limit the amendment to the upper market street and ct with the recommendation to the board to continue the execution of expanding the legislation citywide. >> commissioner moore. >> director ram i have a question does the change of the word changing the definition of accessory apply only for upper market or citywide otherwise we're undercutting the process. >> understood i understand it is from upper market that's the only place our changing the controls. >> if you can confirm that i'm
6:06 pm
supportive if not citywide i can't it will have to be preceded by the action. >> i'll ask the maker of the motion to clarify. but >> actually what i was proposing i read into the motion i put that away i read the two parts included in 9 second part the definition of lone 10 m ads it was not other entertainment it would be a use asked by the supervisor as what it would be. >> the question is it only applies to europe market. >> right. >> city attorney and the language here part two was the you were market consider businesses with 10 or few m ad instead of other eyes but it says the upper market that's part two of the motion it both
6:07 pm
parts of motion have confined to the upper market mc t. >> i actually have relied the question is the commission intent should this move forward to our question commissioner moore no action on this gil until there's no board meeting until the district reappointment but is it the commissions intent if something broader happens it comes back to the commission or is the commission instructing to the board to come back. >> i prefer something come back. >> commissioner johnson. >> thank you. i agree with commissioner president wu some should come back and the upper market legislation passes than
6:08 pm
if were something subsequent it will supersede this like hate street i'm considering on upper market it clears up condominium conversion if we take out the word limited to europe market ct it was for upper market ct we're not limiting it that's itself legislation and we're only asking for the modification of talking about accessory uses i think that will make things clearer. >> oh, oh. >> my understanding we're only limiting it to the zoning district and then the distinction is being changed to the modification. >> i'm sorry, i heard you say something different the legislation itself come through
6:09 pm
us is for the upper market we're not futuristic limiting it. >> the limits is because you've amended staffs resolution recommending to the board. >> we're not taking it. >> you know what i mean we're not amending staffs recommendation. >> through the chair this is a formatting thing and but you're not recommending of the portion as it applies to the upper market ct. >> thank you mr. star. >> commissioner moore. >> i want to ask the city attorney has a whether or not the discussion operates on two scales one is that the arresting cascades to only focusing on this moment at&t's another upper market and the second part changing the accessory use in this particular case we ask it
6:10 pm
only applies to europe market is going is that a correct interpretation or am i missing something. >> deputy city attorney marilyn burn the recommendation is clear to me and it seems clear to staff i'm not sure what our concerned you're leaving out. >> the redistinction of accessory use that's all i'm asking you want to make sure and it's your recommendation you can choice what you want it only applies to europe market. >> you as a director confirm that i'm comfortable. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah. as i said i'm reading from what the staff report the way it would be before the more expansive staff recommendation
6:11 pm
this about applied to other things it says the market ct to permit the arresting cascades on the first and second floor and instead of other entertainment use so no where does it say it's limited by even though nature of the words themselves tare only speaking to the upper market ct and the rest of the motion calls for staff to study with recommendations to the supervisors to keep the discussion open for other parts of city but that doesn't has nothing to do with to the first parts of motion. >> i believe we have consensus we're only recommending to change to allow the arcades as described in the upper market mc t and the few minutes ago only
6:12 pm
applies to the mc t. >> commissioner richards it would be great to separate those before we get into the back and forth and not having the recommendation to apply it to citywide that's all. >> please call the question. >> all right. commissioners on that motion commissioner antonini commissioner hillis excuse me. commissioner johnson. >> commissioner moore. commissioner richards and commissioner president wu so moved, commissioners, that motion passes unanimously 5 to zero commissioners that place you on item 11 dimension and controls for homeless streetcars >> good afternoon planning staff staff before you today is american people organization amending the distinction for the
