9:46 am
with the rec and park i'm pleased to talk about the more born project i will give you a brief history of that very old and slack last year building from then to now the building was built and turn of the last servant by the reed brothers it is a city landmark designated in 1985 the building was occupied from 44 to 89 it was damaged if the loma prieta muni decided to demolish the building and people came together to ask for demolish and came to willie brown in 2004 the rec and park department decided to take the building over from muni realizing a real needs for the
9:47 am
programming in district 11 also in 2004 the department partnered with muni and it will not fall down in an earthquake between 2007 and 2013 the city provided the friends with funds inform capitals campaign work and provided the ladder they did successfully and a lot of this funding came if commissioner avalos office so thank you commissioner dooley and the friends group is a terrific champion with the funding also actually at this time we've received pro bono from the design the conceptual design for the building as well as legal services from gibson dunn and a variety of pro bono partners that was included in the 2009 balboa station
9:48 am
creating a human being around the station brings economic and community activities to that area where there is not a central gather point let's see so going forward the master plan for the building is to add a level to create cafe space and retail space are litter and design studios to roommate a power hours a 35 feet ceiling with natural light and where we will cool industrial features giving a great vibe the secretary of interior will be applied with a gold building a leaf platinum last year the commission approved an lda with a future lease and mou with the mta that
9:49 am
allows for our short time and long term access to the building during construction going forward and you approved the schematic design based on design development documentation it is recently completed the costs estimate is $29 million that is proven to be a heavy left for the friends in the city and we decided at this point well, it had a wall at this point we were having trouble getting transaction with funders that couldn't see how to get to the end goal with a $29 million price tag the mayor's office asked us to participate in a study with a wallace grew up from the netherlands to figure out how to
9:50 am
use it with an economic activity with the building on the other two buildings the old mint and subway station we adding with a two-phase approach with the power house, and, secondly, the office building we actually talked about to the design team and their approach was indeed possible and together the department with the mayor's office of housing and community development and commissioner avalos office felt the approach was the strongest way to cultivate the building and provide a community asset by funderers they'll see it thriving and creating the energy if needs it right there. >> so going forward this project will be a coalition between our 3 departments
9:51 am
city will oversee the development part of excuse me. the office of economic workforce development neighborhood asset activation program that will require the termination of the lda with the friends rather than wait for the schedule reaching the deadlines suggested they have to raise the funds by the ends of 2017 we agreed if the best interests of the project to terminate the agreement to move forward with the power house separate the friends will continue to participate in the development of programming in the power house power house design is essential scaled down version of the power house stop sign it is in the masters plan but all the improvements at this time will be used in the master plan not
9:52 am
building mission bay anything and tearing it down which is terrific and stabilization and landscape improvements and restored windows and mechanic and electrical systems and floors with heating a carter area and office with events in and our organization schizophrenia use it the planning department determined this power house will have no event effect on the ceqa fbdz and the mart plan ceqa in 2013 and that plan will not change that. >> this is just a rendering of the outside of the building this is a render what the inside of the building will look like to complete the power house
9:53 am
project we need a different set of construction documentation although some of the work can be used for the master and also so the additional cd which will require an additional $300,000 plus is fully funded by mayor's office 3 hundred through the neighborhood activation program and hundred and 75 through rec and park that will cover the regulatory fees and adjustments that need to be made because of the shortfall we'll need to adjust the funds we were planning on getting to preliminary cds in the master plan to get us to hundred percent documents we've finished it but needed need to go through the industry process also to add the funds to the contract we'll
9:54 am
need to add that under this the construction budget for the project is $1.8 million we've identified real source of fuentes that need to be approved but we look forward to bringing those of 3.5 millions that leaves a gap of $3 million i would like to point out this is achieveable this $3 million to find the funds i think that will get us to a building to raise the rest of the funds the good news we have prospective source of few minutes for the $3 million including the tax credits for the trust i'll point out in a moment and the pd
9:55 am
requests and general fund and private philanthropy there be renewed interests now we're close to making it happen. >> i'd like to spends the rest of the time addressing the questions of the operational models for the building this is important to know that the vision for the building remains unchanged it will have a youth and arts related focus with additional programming for all community members so it will remain a community focused building are luckily the department has an arsenal of tools we'll spends the next three or four models to figure out the best one the strategies the operated models the rec and park will manage that and will require funding and provide permits to community arts and
9:56 am
organizations examples are harvey milk and dana is here to discuss it if you want to dig deeper this is the nonprofit we do if with a number of building to identify a master tenants and community assess will be assured there the department works are boys and girls club with the ymca as the occupant and sunset for the elderly and hayes valley that has more magic one thing i wanted to bring up the potential role for the cast this is the nonprofits model the american california loans fund a nonprofit constitution that provides resources in real estate and financial train to
9:57 am
the nonprofits that serve low income contingency it is one of the leads advisors for the market economic strategy and also provides financial train and real estate training to nonprofit and the project management services they have a program which provides services for folks who are displaced or facing displacement and rates given out by a volatile economic market the grants are available through the city from the mayor's office of housing and community development cast an organization that has been opportunity $16 million in funding right now through functions and private funders that purposes spaces for the nonprofits organizations while providing the groups the technical system to expand their
9:58 am
capacity and manage their facilities and own the buildings and those two organizations have building and expressed interest in working with us to find the appropriate partner that is ready for the power house the following is a list of organizations in addition to a number of organizations in the pipeline those are organizations that have indicated to supervisor avalos office they're interested in either the power house specifically or expanding their services in or into district 11 so there is a real needs out there briefly a construction schedule assuming we have the funding by next year will look like the following we'll get through cities we're about to get through city design reviews for the power house by next month and look to secure funding by
9:59 am
july 2016 we would create the cds and go through the city reviews it through now and february and september and hopefully start construction in october of 2016 this is aggressive but we believe that is an achieveable goal identification of the appropriate model and partner will it took place simultaneously so we have the right partner in place and if this partner brings funding to the table we'll identify them at this point we'll secure the funding to begin construction on schedule that concludes my presentation. thank you. >> thank you. >> public comment. >> public comment. >> i would ask supervisor avalos. >> thank you commissioner

10:01 am
to take on we're seeing in district 11 while there is all kinds of development and money flowing into san francisco we don't have the kinds of development in district 11 that enabling the communities groups to assess the few minutes that are related to part of the development we've had a large number of people all across the district to work together to get the attention like the area around santa fe and give me that carbarn the intersection we've been making sure that the rec and park can build housing on the upper yard was the management of the municipal transportation agency but now under the mayor's office of housing and community development we're building a new neighborhood at the intersection 4 has been an industrial area

now we're building new building for housing area commercial space and actually augmenting services there and what is available for neighborhood facilities with the carbarn wear meeting together all the different neighborhoods of district 11 and creating apace that is a more neighborhood fortunately not had that kind of feel in the history of this area this project is very, very meaningful to make sure we move forward to support this kind of development and changes that is really going to make a whole new neighborhood that didn't exist in this side of san francisco we have a project with many, many changes and a lot of people focused to make sure it moves forward despite how difficult to raise the money now we have the attention of the rec and park that's been involved as well as is the office of economic
10:03 am
workforce development and outside groups like cast we have the configuration that can actually moved on the project we have a faith approach that is really going to make a huge difference we can activate the space early on and do twaes once we've demonstrated the support from the board of supervisors here at the board we've had voted with aid and darling that has done work we voted unanimously to support 24 going forward i hope you can see so and so changes back to resolving the l lda and go forward with the contract and forward the current plan is really what is going to make a difference i hope to have your support in this. >> thank you, supervisor. >> okay rochelle and then leah
10:04 am
how do you say your name leona helmsley. >> and reed. >> i said rochelle first. >> good morning. i'm rochelle the director of the public and private partners for the san francisco arts examination and happy to be here to speak in support of the companies much of what you've heard has been stolen since 2013, the department works with other nonprofits to depth the strategies to help to mitigate the service organizations in san francisco those organizations many of whom have significant contracts with the city and contribute to vital public services that help to design communities are challenged by the real estate forces and through the marries and recommendations that came out of that group the program was
10:05 am
launched through an allocation from the board of supervisors 2 point plus million dollars went to the mayor's office of housing and community development and thanks to commissioner avalos proposal an additional $2 million to the art commissions to serve arts organizations approximately 50 organizations have received financial or technical assistance there is clearly a needs for nonprofit art spaces throughout to he and this for for shared space and collaborative solutions given could provide an art organization serving the public and the arts commission has been working closely with the stabilization and a grant from the national endowment for the arts wear working on a mapping project that includes sites and
10:06 am
we're certainly including the geneva carbarn in this picture we plan to continue working with the rec and park department and oewd and district 11 supervisors office to see how the building can evolve to support a arts questions or comments thank you for your time today. >> thank you. >> (calling names). >> i'm curious. >> it's - >> i'm a senior real estate consulate at northern california community loan few minutes everywhere been working in partnership with the city for 15 years for nonprofits to manage they're releasing niece and in this particular case with the carbarn and is condition of the building as it stands question, help pit together we have a pipeline of 17 different arts
10:07 am
organizations that can use the building we're helping them to get real estate ready to take on a project of this size so i like to say wear in support of this kind project we really want to work with buildings that are outside of the private sector so arts organizations and also when you see a lot of consists going on it is in this math it is because we have laugh nonprofits in private buildings and buildings like this is the kinds we like to see and have a second stock of buildings that are serving nonprofits thank you. >> thank you. >> reed. >> hello thank you for the opportunity to speak today my name is reed i'm the executive director of youth art exchange we're one of the art
10:08 am
based organized that is based in district 11 i'm a member of the excelsior collaborative it is a group of over 20 organizations focused on community vital and youth education there's a letter in support of having a great human being like this within the neighborhood i'll talk about my organization the arts exchange we have been around for 15 years this year and most of the time has been spent in the excelsior we work with public high school students and pair them in the classroom with professional practicing artists all the students are public high school students primarily low income students and students of color we want our students to interact with san francisco as a whole and we have really focused on doing projects throughout the
10:09 am
community there's a human being to draw people in this is exist to think about bringing people into the community and one of the things to note is that we have worked with companies that about our space niece when we started all the programming was in the community and operated in the community now we're all over the city because of the need to have affordable art space in the neighborhood we really excited by this project moving forward and hope to be one of the organizations that use this and our students and families have access thank you. >> thank you. >> is there anyone else that wanted to come on up. >> my name is rosalina principle at the.gov dine we've been working think on this project since 2009 and in spits and spurts the team a excited
10:10 am
about this phase it is amazing the building itself has two sprat pieces that phase it this first phase is providing revitalization from the streets and really provides a space for the communities an early phase thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker. dan. >> okay. >> good morning, commissioners uaw kin with the office of economic workforce development i think with the mayor ed lee initiative we're very excited to see the items move forward for the reasons if some many of the speakers you'll hear horizontal from our community members that are here for this vision to revitalize and activate it city
10:11 am
it is particular and necessary need to the activated area of the southern part of san francisco we really want is to see this vacant, westbound activated we think due to the critical approach in partnership we have among the city partners this is a way to do it in a responsible fashion to make sure we see kids and adults enjoying this space of a skip and jump away from the balboa park station. >> 3 months ago basically no plan this opportunity and approach helps us to get the space moving forward the community is very, very excited about and the approach we're taking among the partners is something that is also been enabled by the virtual of the mayors cultivation program that
10:12 am
will enable us to realize some go is important one this is activates and the automation approach will provide a great example across the city for underutilized community assets like the given carbarn we're committed to working with the community and we're committed and letting you know how we are making progress at the carbarn we know through the activation program we look forward to your support thank you for your time. >> dan. >> morning i'm dan weaver the board chair of the friends of geneva office building and power house using a formal name i want
10:13 am
to say a few words of the importance of this building and project to the surrounding communities primarily the excelsior and the bmi that used to be messy every time we divide the districts but let me say recent information shows that 50 percent or more the residents of the surrounding communities the excelsior particularly are immigrants where ene english is not the first language that there is enough for most people to know this is a challenge for the children and youth as they group not knowing english i think so that thirty percent of the immigrants that live around the building in the excelsior which i have the data for are, in fact, legal
10:14 am
immigrants a huge challenge as a number of people pointed out no place in the district or no proper place to have after-school programs and that's the other part of the challenge not like when we have we've got a wealth of choices andness will distancing pointing out this this is the challenge we have in 1999 we said okay. we saved the building now what do we do it become clear the number of children and youth in district 11 was high the highest level in san francisco of all the districts. >> so let me say 16 years later this is a better approach this is the way in which we can hopefully move forward and show private funders the city is serious about taking did leads with the resources and getting this done thank you.
10:15 am
>> thank you. >> is there anyone else that wants to make public comment on this item. >> seeing none, public comment is closed. >> commissioner vice president low. >> so i still trying to figure out what we're being asked for so the first step is to determine the l e w a. >> that's correct. >> is if documented and we have a termination agreement drafted by the city attorney that would be fine and actually has to go to the board of supervisors. >> once the lda is termed the rec and park department steps in to take over the role of i guess this initial part of the phase one. >> correct we have been actually taking over we've been the project manager on the
10:16 am
design working with darling to date we'll continue in that role and are we at this time we don't have a deforgiven program with the actual users; right? there is ideas of bart's groups and community organizations, youth - walk through the process how that comes together. >> commissioner this is an asset that belongs to the rec and park department. >> uh-huh. >> there the l d b.a. we've designated through the programming responsibility to the friends of the carbarn in a long term lease and provided that they met certain fund prairgz we're going to change the model for the funding and
10:17 am
take on a smaller piece of this building it is basically like any other sort of clubhouse although it is worse unhabitual but we're drooeg going to try to fidget a strategy to renovate and program this feels a little bit like a deck eerie was going to be my own comments because i see here the project is incredibly important to a neighborhood with a number of partners and programming flexibility i think my sense given the need no district 11 the eater pact forward will be with a nonprofit participate whether there nc c l r - f i'm sorry helping us identify a partner or any of that long list of
10:18 am
communities groups that has expressed to supervisor avalos a needs for nonprofit space so i think in some respect this project has goggles simpler we are candid about the fact that are money to identify join that the programming piece is frankly not our biggest challenge that is a simple element we'll ends up with whether a master tenant lease occupied by 2 thousand square feet about 2 thousand square feet to do what they do. >> i get does d-11 plus i'm trying to figure out the strategy to bring together all of those potential users so - what's the strategy to brings together. >> i think again there are a couple of different strategies
10:19 am
one would be to identify himself to work with lc cf and have them serve as the broker for a single multiple of arts that could use the desk or boo deckerer with the boys and girls club but the boys and girls club we have the ymca and others community-based organizations and frankly rec and park does programming the third strategy simply to do what we've done to identify the community-based relevant partners in the space to partner with us and lease the space and to program it when we do that we still work with that partner to make sure there is community assess for the parties and community meetings. >> so either of those 3 strategies what is the - what is
10:20 am
- is it running concurrent. >> yeah. a conversation and you know we're still in conversation with the nc c l f and are pursuing the casts partner because interests pooshl with investment in this you know capital investment in if this space we have time to figure out and there's a lot of need and deferring groups that fit our programming vision over the times that will take to work through the process and identify other financial resources we need to commence construction i think we'll have the time to figure that out and work closely with supervisor avalos and the office of economic workforce development. >> the schematic design we're being asked to approve is only the phase one power house which
10:21 am
was on the slide. >> thaishg the master plan has been approved. >> the sole source and then the real approving 4 hundred and 75 thousands of additional architecture fees to department the construction documents that looks like base buildings. >> it is actually 3 hundred and 70 thousand arrest the mayor's office gave up money that includes permits and regulatory. >> it is really what we're being asked $375,000 for additional architecture fees to go from maybe the architect design elements documents to construction elements. >> correct. >> only for the base building. >> only the base power house. >> so the work is being
10:22 am
approved can be utilized but we have additional - a different program or deft communities organization that wants to use the space that work can be reused in terms of we're trying to avoid something done trice. >> to answer our question the space is not being designed for a specific partner the - this is now going to be flexible open space that is can be programmed with a variety of partners it is basically a building hop a nice one. >> so we're just taking this to a soft shell. >> well, to be clear the construction documents we want to finish building yeah, he think we're going to ends up with a space that's programable i don't know what you mean. >> it will be occupyable if a tenant couples as a arts
10:23 am
organization or a dance group wants to add a reliefable floor they can come in and do improvements it will useable. >> we're not approving construction at this time correct this is only for that of the architecture contract. >> correct. >> no construction contract. >> no. >> okay. >> commissioner bonilla. >> yeah. i think commissioner vice president lows questions are critical but i imagine that we will have ample time the communities and the commission will have ample time to really talk about all of users potential users of the cow barn
10:24 am
and the what will be at the end of the day what will be the operational model i don't think we're really here to discuss all - to discuss the model specifically because i think there is a lot that goes into making a determination of which would be the most efficient way to operate that particular asset so the only thing i really wanted to comment on is that i live in district 11 and i drive to work everyday through that intersection to and from every day oftentimes
10:25 am
i ask myself when are we going to move forward with that project. >> and i don't only ask myself that because there are many residents that know that i live in the district that i am asked which is something going to be done with that facility i'm really fwlalgdz by the fact we have a people we finally have come up with a vehicle that will enable us to move forward with doing something with that facility i really think that something has to be done demolishing it is not an option and the - i think having lived
10:26 am
in district 11, 25 years now and having been involved in the cuomo the communities of the mission - i've forgotten the acronym but i actually did some of my first work in the city was to do block club organizing and we went to the - house-to-house talking to neighbors how to bring in more resources into the outer mission over the years since i have been not only
10:27 am
helping i mean been involved in that capacity and been a resident i think i can say without question we really do not have informational point in the excelsior whereby residents nonprofits, seniors, different organizations businesses could really coalesce and be engaged in really making the neighborhoods better so i can really i feel really strongly about moving forward with this project and when the time comes i would like to make the motion to support going forward. >> thank you and i will add that if this project is approved this
10:28 am
approach we'll hit the ground running to think about the programming partners and models and spend the next 12 months doing that. >> commissioner mcdonnell. >> thank you commissioner president buell. >> a couple of things and a comment i'm clear on the design elements basic building and making that habitable but the question for you and the general manager and i get there are a number of programming with that said, what's the funding formula for whatever lands in this space. >> essentially if it is a nonprofit model the nonprofits will pay rents for the space offset by the rent accuracy for any potential improvements that the partner decides to want to
10:29 am
do or need to side obviously subject to a lease negotiation but no different than the relationships we have many of our clubhouses with community partners those are clubhouses have not been revenue janitors there about broadening our reach and offering a program breath and capita in the way we don't have the resources interests another model if that go fails through rec and park could manage the space frankly, we're more of a program partner and not driver in that space there is too much community needs and community programming in the district and i think that would be the most likely path forward. >> and latest appreciate this new phase approach a smaller
10:30 am
lift but $3 million is not significant can you talk about the strategies for the fundraising. >> show your there are historic preservation commission tax credits it was fattens and phase two were approved by the rec and park service this is one avenue that has been complicated we're no longer signing a lease with the friends we'll have to pursue another oaths but you 20 percent and many soft pockets that's approximately $1.2 million of a $6 million and many soft cut budgets interests cast that has received actually $16 million in funding they've recently invested 5 millions in two buildings the luggage store was one that was to help stabilize
10:31 am
to buy the building and stabilize they're releasing. >> why not put up the slides. >> sure. >> no there we go. >> there would be general funds asked from the department and next year's city budgets, there's the opportunities to pursue a number of city sources a funding from the general fund we do believe that an operator might bring tenant consortiums i feel a number of organizations that have capital finland's in their account to invest in a building such as ours we've received to foundation the goldsmith that committed funds and a a number of companies that
10:32 am
indicated a willingness seeing more achieveable the 26 millions a big lift to the foundations and a pipeline of folks those companies will have been cultivating. >> that's united states summary. >> i appreciate that one final follow-up if we have a sense it maybe hard it is the project programs of those prospects how much in the percentage or is necessary to get started. >> we've identified the construction shortages is about 3 a little bit more than 3 so that's what we need. >> but you know we feel like we've gotten 3 and a half again,
10:33 am
this is you know the this engineer that could this is the little building that could we've gotten from a vision from to big of a fund-raising lifts to a project that gets necessary activation in the space and hopefully spark some point the large project we want to start small you know this is are still a reach but it is more researchable reach. >> sure thank you. >> a quick comment echoing what commissioner bonilla said my youth grouping in the fillmore and right at the corner of fillmore and turf is a building that is unhabitual and it's my teen years catching balboa park so it is exist to see this particular building this is light in the building thank you,
10:34 am
thank you for getting us to this point. >> commissioner vice president low. >> i just times it is like i said, we have the money to pay for the architecture fees to help at least depict what is going to be built to the basement that at least makes a portion of the, however, hours habitual we know who the users are we don't know at this time we don't have the money to build it but since overwhelm in the real estate industry i'm not a surprised i think so it is good real estate and if we start the process this will came into together so i defer to commissioner bonilla to make the motion to approve this. >> so let me say before i ask
10:35 am
commissioner bonilla to do that that i've twice toured this building and had interest in that i once went to a quasi meeting with the funders to see the presentation and i must say i agree with the general manager the undertaking was so big and required some vision i don't think there is a lack of support in the philanthropic community but a lack of getting their hands arm the size and scope of the project i do believe this first step in doing sometimes that demonstrates this potential will go a way it is not questionable the real estate is getting more extensive and providing space in this city for nonprofits it profitable i'll
10:36 am
encourage my colleagues to support that thank you sxoil. >> i'd like to make the motion to approve staff's recommendation for the geneva carbarn improvement project. >> >> >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> so moved. >> and thank you one and all. >> we're going back to item 7 the cleans parks bond the second issuance. >> commissioners good morning dawn director of planning and capital management i'm briefly walk through the same presentation that was delivered to capital

10:47 am
load to permissible this park is shadowed only on 1.6 percent this project will increase the shadow by .5.569 percent the threshold and this is the day of and moment of maximum impacts the blue shadow is the new shadow that cast by this project the yellow area from a mask reduction from the that went on during the design phase a little bit less than the project was had been designed here is it is day of maximum shadow shadows from 648 throughout the park here at 7:30 and 744 and 8 o'clock and 815 and here almost 9 o'clock gone
10:48 am
from the park it is completely begun did i 948 for the project pipeline there's one other project that is coming down the line 807 it is a little bit favorite away from the park has a minimal impact on the park that as a 2 point zero impact it increases it is in design phases not received a complete shadow analysis i don't know it will be coming before the commission i imagine in about a year. >> the developer and the project manager project sponsor has a number of community benefits and stacey the st. paul

10:53 am
>> thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> my name is chandler white i've been a residence of san francisco since 197 of a my part time i felt the heat if the church being burnt there was a garden now looks like a big old tooth cavity i would love and support this completely mr. beginnings berries staff said you can use that is that as a putting green 24 makes the cavity look worse but we need to
10:54 am
bring up the foot traffic the weddings and the other functions we've received and it is just a wonderful location i fwresht our support for this i love this city i had a opportunities to retire if north carolina i wouldn't leave san francisco so i appreciate your consideration thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker >> commissioners i'm dan the pastor at sfaupz lutheran church sfaupz has been serving san francisco for almost one hundred 60 years 1867 across the street from jefferson park since the
10:55 am
iconic church building burnt in 1995 in some ways the church has been a custodian from jefferson park i'm not sure when jefferson park was establishes or names but st. paul has a corner on the place literally and figuratively we have cards for the park and been part of its activity for those hundred years in which the church building stood unfortunately, the church building burned our congregation moved into the school next door but conditioning concern for and care for the park has continued loss of the building was
10:56 am
extraordinary proposition and ironic that even though it was a devastating loss it was a plus for the park because there was a rather significance shadow also that of eliminated and now we come back to the commission here and requesting that we be allowed in some a ways to return to the spot all be that with the residential unit as well but the cast the shadow to be cast was much less than the other building important issue for me is that this this or that this park across the street continue in its pristine way encouraged and supported and cultivated and st.
10:57 am
paul has delivered for those hundred years and want to make sure that it is cared for in a reasonable fashion thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker and just as a reminders this is item is on the shadow impact is if i can make you are comments towards the shadow impact please >> next speaker. >> good morning. i'm tom i'm the residents manager at 1090 eddy street part times in the northeast corner of jefferson square park i come on here to talk about this is not supportive of a shadow impact it is less than one percent this about safety and from 1090 where we needed to go we gather the 62
10:58 am
signatures over 90 percent of our taunt 90 percent overwhelming that given that petition i'm going to sign it including the mailman we didn't agree on the exact reason it sign it we need you housing sprets others say that will the is horrible cavity but it is a lot to do with safety park your car at night and you'll have a window broken in the morning we need the eyes and ears if or in that corner that shows as your picture all those wonderful windows the offer looking at the park that will absolutely help with the safety in that area it is less than one percent we have signatures but 90 percent of the tenants said they'll sign it on
