it's a two way street to look how we move or city forward on policy that's important to san francisco. i believe that our clean power policies are are important for doing our part around clooi mate change. we've been trying to schedule a meeting with the public utility commission, a joint meeting with the commission for months now and it hasn't happened. i'm noting changing my vote moving forward on these items that i have already helped to approve in budget and finance committee, but i actually just think it's important to note that we need to be met halfway on policy goals that are important to jointly to the public utility commission and board of supervisors and our lafco and so far we haven't seen that cooperation. i'm hoping that can change. i don't know if i want to be able to continue to just do the the regular work i'm doing without asking for more of them so i wanted to

3:44 pm
senior advisor to the mayor. i think we're waiting from staff from the puc to come over, but we were pleased to see the study and draft version we've been able to take a look at and glad it pointed out the contract is not necessary and that was a big issue that the mayor was very concerned about. i know that the puc has some additional questions about the study with respect to jobs and how the numbers are calculated in the study and we're looking forward to seeing the final report. i know there was a joint meeting where that report will be discussing and i think it's more appropriate to wait and see the results of than meeting before we comment about the future of what the cca is. >> the focus here sb how the puc is spending some of the budget items we're talking about, but in the context of
3:45 pm
cca, one of the challenges we have is the time to do the joint meeting. i'm wondering if if it's possible for the mayor's office to help expedite finding a time that actually works. i'm happy to take that to the puc commission. it's in their purview to schedule their immediating but happy to talk with them. >> thank you. >> welcome. >> and with that, then do we need a roll call vote on item 15? no. why don't we take item 15, same house, same call? without objection, this ordinance is passed on first reading unanimously. if we can go over to item 31, please. >> item 31 is a resolution to declare the intent of the multihousing revenue bonds for 588 mission boulevard north in an amount not to exceed 62.5 million. >> all right, same house same call? without objection this
3:46 pm
resolution is adopted. >> item 32 is an ordinance to eliminate the requirement that fwas stations provide separate toilet facilities for men and women. >> this is legislation i offered a scholarship opportunity for undergraduate that our office announced back in in april. they asked that they cared about and admit suggestions for new laws or suggestions to updated laws. the new website that our office and a national non profit helped create what was called san francisco, along with the mayor's office last year. the website allows users to comment directly on the specific different section b sections of our city's laws and students participating
3:47 pm
stems directly from a comment on the health code from cooper, a student at ss state who foelt that the current requirement that gas stations require separate toilet facilities for the people who own these gas stations. m i agreed and in turned agreed to propose cooper's suggestion into law. the ordinance itself, which was unanimously supported by small business commission strikes men and women and updates what i felt was an outdated section of the code to allow gas stations to provide one unisex bath ream. supervisor kim introduced an amendment saying dph will have the responsibility for the enforcement of the section and she cease been working on other amendments as well. the proposal scholar sipship was less about the if he can any cal ordinance we have in front of us but more about
3:48 pm
encouraging and underrepresented voice to participate in the legislative process. it was about showcasing our technology tools that can empower our residents listen and remain accountable to those they were elected to represent. i continue to be a firm believer that technology and the tools that are coming out can be a power mechanism to increase civic engagement and believe this is an example of that. >> thank you supervisor farm. supervisor kim. >> and i'd like to add my name to the legislation and i think it's great supervisor farrell has launch a project to get young people engaged. it was great to pass restricting how we permit tobacco licenses in our city as well, something that came from young youth leaders here in san francisco. i have want to add again my
3:49 pm
support. on a separate note, i think this is a step in the right direction. working in the board of edgeuation weave been working towards unisex bathrooms because when we have an increasing number of individuals that are questioning their gender and sexual identity i think that unisex bathrooms in general is the direction we should be moving forward as a city, but as a neighborhood issue, at the gas stations, we have their toilet that silties open oeven to their patrons at night so i was happy to seize this laegs slags move forward. i was not aware this was even in our staytive code or health code and so i'm looking forward to follow up with trailing legislation so we can enforce this part of our health code in our city. thank you to the individual who brought this forward and supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor kim.
3:50 pm
can we take this ordinance? same house same call. without objection this ordinance is passed. on first reading. >> item 33. is an urgency ordinance to [inaudible] in the proposed central south of market plan area. >> same house same call. without objection this ordinance is finally passed unanimously. we do not have any special 2:30 accommodations today. we are not at the hour for our 3 pm special order. >> we have a special 2:30 commendation? officer cohen. >> is officer mike here? >> oh, we do. may i? >> supervisor cohen. >> thank you. so today colleagues, i'm honoring officer michael
3:51 pm
rivera for his work. he have's busy out in the field, but doesn't come to the chamber very often. the wilderness program is administered by the san francisco police department's community relations unit and funded by grants and donations. this has been a ten year endeavor to break down areas and build better youth relations with police officers, teachers, parents and community at large. the wilderness program takes students who live in challenged communities right here on day hikes, river, rafting, kayaking as well as backpacking trips. if you ask people what this means to them, you'll get all different answers. i think it's important for us to recognize and highlight there are many good police officers out there in other forces across cities, but in
3:52 pm
our hometown here in san francisco. officer mike here has been with the wilderness program since the beginning of this program, which has been for ten years and embodies the definition of what true community policing means. it is a privilege to present him to you today and present this certificate of honor. take a few words if you'd like. >> i'd just like to thank everybody for the opportunity to be able to serve our children because they are our future and we need to teach them correctly while they're young. thank you. >> thank you very much. [applause]
3:53 pm
>> thank you supervisor cohen. and now i believe we have a request from supervisor wiener.. >> yes, if i could move to rescind the vote on item 18, i wanted to offer a small amendment to that and neglected to do so. >> there's been a motion to rescinds. without objection that vote has been rescinded and supervisor if you want to discuss your amendment. >> i support in item, but the item allows the puc to lease poll space to private entities for different kind of installations and as you'll recall, we have been really struggling with our street light system in san francisco
3:54 pm
and in fact we recently passed legislation a few weeks ago to set new standard for improving our street light system, trying to invest in in it, but the public utility commission is underinvesting in our street light system which is key to public safety and quality of life in san francisco. so supervisor breed and i have been working on an amendment which i'd like to read an additional resolve clause basically providing that it is the intent of the board of supervisors -- of course we can't bind ourselves in the budget process -- the proceeds from this item that the public utility commission earns would be dedicated to reinvesting in street lights so would read as follows, further resolved that the board of supervisors intend in the annual
3:55 pm
appropriation ordinance to appropriate funds generated by these leases for the street light program and be -- and then it continues from there. so that's the amendment that supervisor breed and i would like to offer. >> all right, there's been an amendment offered by supervisor wiener, seconded by supervisor breed. without objection amendment is adopted and same house same call from item 18. that item is adopted unanimously. now if we can go to items 49. >> item #49 was considered by the land use and economic development commit tee on december 19 and forwarded to the board committee report. okay pie a portion of the public right of way to install and maintain a public art
3:56 pm
project comprise edd op the market street and affirming the planning department's determination under the california environmental quality act and making findings of consistency. >> before us is a resolution that will authorize the installation of what is called the light rail art project along market street from to van necessary. we know spine of our transportation system, and plays a dig significant role in the life of sf.
3:57 pm
this proposal, the light rail project, i think will help to move us in that direction in terms of improving the the look and feel and vibrant feel of market street. it is the first of its kind in the world in h that it will install lights along market street that will allow people to visualize the movement of trains and the lights will move up and down market street, reflect in the movements of the trains below ground, there will be different colors of lights for different subway lines and it will be a very interesting and exciting change to market street. this art installation, which
3:58 pm
is privately funded is brought to us by illuminate the arts, which is the same organization that has installed the bay lights on the bay bridge, which have been a very positive change for people viewing the bridge. so this is a really terrific project. it's visionary. i want to thank illuminate the arts for its work to really make our city and region an even more beautiful and artistic place than it already is so colleagues, i ask for you support for this installation, which will be temporary, which we hope will become permanent in the future. >> supervisor mar. >> i want to encourage you to go to and see what it will look like. it's pretty amazing. please add me as a cosponsor
3:59 pm
as well. >> thank you. so l coleagues, if we can take this resolution, same house same call. without objection this resolution is adopted unanimously. if we can proceed to roll call, with the understanding that at 3:00 pm we will be interrupt roll call for our special orders. with that, madam clerk. >> supervisor wiener is the first supervisor to introduce new business. >> okay. >> supervisor wiener will submit. supervisor avalos. >> submit. >> breed. >> colleagues, i have one item today. i am introducing a package of legislative changes to help preserve san francisco's live music venues. with amendment ps to the building administrative planning and police codes this legislation is the result of months of work of collaboration with the entertainment commission, five
4:00 pm
music venues, owners and residential developers. san francisco nightclubs, bars, and entertainers attract 16 million customers each year and generate over 800 million in spending according to a 2012 report from the controller's office, but more than the dollars, these venues are an integral part of our culture of what makes us san francisco. as we build more housing for everyone who wants to live here we have to protect the reasons why they want to live here in the first mrats. place. there are currently 351 permitted places of entertainment in the city. the live music hall, nightclubs and bars with djs. in recent years, residential development have increased dramatically in areas where traditionally they were more industrial or commercial. this has purt increasing
