10:24 am
injuncture active relief and safety and crime we live next to a staircase as you've heard the vera minute is up and violate crime a mugging on the esmeralda and because of the delipidated decreasing over the streets and drinking at night and police come to patrol garbage next to ms. harris houses people are there amend all the time i've made once a month logging into 311 please pick up fill in the blank garbage. >> thank you very much for coming we understand. >> is there any additional public comment? >> morning.
10:25 am
>> good morning. >> i'm christopher's i'm also a neighbor we have the house others 190 we share a common wall with ms. harris we've lived the house since 2004 at - the house is more or less in delipidated condition when we moved in as well that is deteriorated i know that ms. harris it is not getting better by leaps and bound worse the rodent problem is they literally chewed through her wall into our house there is a hole it is patched now but the rats come raccoons are - where all the raccoons deprecate in the same place with worms and whatnot
10:26 am
that was in the the area between the two properties we spent thousands of dollars and countless hours clean power the rats and the health hazard and the disadvantage i have too young children boys that one whom was alergies i can't imagine the conditions i know since 2002 at least the city and multiple agrees have been convening task force and offering help and coming to
10:27 am
meetings every time i've heard the same thing she wants to change but refuses help but when offered she turns it down she's turned it down from a nonprofit back in 200 or 4 i personally offered even a couple of months ago to help she said the only way if i were to roach the rats and release them humanely you know there's a concern for her books her records if you look at the photos open her approach their stacks of old phone directories and magazines the garage it is floor to ceiling garbage a window on her property that faces our backyard i saw literally a rat crawl
10:28 am
through the ceiling as the ceiling collapsed and fall through the ceiling and scramble out you can smell and feel it we feel it everyday it is killing us slowly by slowly that's what's happening on our property i know i have letter from half a dozen neighbors if i could submit them. >> thank you. >> anything else for public comment. >> okay >> may i say more. >> if you want to come up you can have public comment. >> no public comment. >> your chair your chair. >> many animals possums i have
10:29 am
the backyard and raccoons can barely see out and by rats and mice and birds i have a palm tree the backyard that is attractive to all those animals. >> thank you, ms. harris. >> commissioners yes commissioner walker. >> again, i want to thank all party for coming it is also hard to hear and it is challenging for us to deal with those situations by it feels to me like we have allowed this to linger too long and that it is actually detrimental to all parties i'll ask the
10:30 am
commissioner to consider drawing a line around the timeframe and assist as much as we can within our department and other departments to facilitate helping to resolve the issues to a there is a motion on the table i'm open to i'd like to hear at commissioners but it feels like we need to do something. >> commissioner mccarthy i concur with commissioner walker it seems to me we're getting more and more of these cases of seems to be obviously take many years to build i think everybody is drying to do the right thing and ms. harris is an extremely charming san francisco lady
10:31 am
you know i mean a difficult point she will accept the help and should be put on our i call our street smarts and figure out getting everyone at table nonprofit and people that can join forces and see if we can help this lady and obviously help the neighbors it is a compelling case to live in their homes and this is impacting them but commissioner walker and i were there yesterday it is difficult a real problem for the department and commissioner walker had good ideas with the health department for the enforcement because a lot of these can be more just hoarding issues. >> but so with that rosemary i think that commissioner walkers point let's talk about timeframe
10:32 am
and meaningful deadlines to address this these types of cases are difficult for the department to resolve we can't get the cooperation of the occupant the last thing to see the person logging their housing she didn't have water that was one of the reasons we referred this case some years ago as the city attorney has been trying to work with her from the stand point that we'll get the person to commitment on the record they've willing to take assistance like i said we've helped people fill out the applications red light mayor's office of housing and community development and more than happy to do that we're concerned with the fact she's living in a situation not good for her ap s tried to help her she's not taken that on and impacting the neighborhood i don't know encourage this to
10:33 am
going on gone for a link period of time but i'm report back to you if it is a money issue i don't think the building is that encombumd but difficult those situations with many items continued to not get someone to avail for the services offered by the mayor's office of housing be more than happy to help her like i said we've tried that before it didn't come to a successful conclude. >> we've tried and the city attorney's office has tried. >> commissioner walker. >> so what i'm sort of leon leaning to draw the line by upholding the order of abatement and with the timeframe and schedule that is serious and i
10:34 am
hope your landis ms. harris are you linking okay. >> so there are plenty of opportunities for assistance you need to accept when it comes before us he i mean, i'm only speaking for myself i feel we need to draw a line we're serious and we're going to uphold this order of abatement that's my motion we offer to held in abeyance for 4 months, 6 months and come up with a timeframe that the commission is comfortable with to avail yourselves of the opportunity to follow up on funding and engage other organizations it can help you but to not draw a line at that point just about allow this to continue on we've tried to easy our way into that it didn't work
10:35 am
very well, that's my motion the timeframe again. >> anyone else yes. >> i agree i'll second that i like coming up with an update i like keeping tabs on things. >> with the timeframe i mean the motion so uphold the order of abatement and hold no abeyance for 6 months and have the staff come back with a workable timeframe with the property owner and get moving on those issues. >> i agree with the motion i think a good approach and i also agree we've seen more of these cases i actually don't think that is an accident there used to be a nonprofit organization that specifically helped seniors
10:36 am
with rehab with the housing development corporation we went out of business eight or ten years ago and the mayor's office of housing have their housing rehabilitation program rehabbed and owner you do understand for seniors the mayor's office of housing they're not taking mrlgz managers they underwrite the loan they know one agency that is doing the case management that is where people fall through the cracks. >> i'll get to that. >> part of problem is that who is responsibly for that utilized is that our collective responsibility as the city you know to try to help you know aging homeowners so they can live with dignity a task force that was created mostly they were focusing on renter the aging in place but
10:37 am
you know we have all of our san francisco as we've seen be aging folks and homeowners opted out buildings and that are the financials are on them and deeper depression for the neighborhood i'll ask that you know we look into the sort of systemic issues to create a acholic beverage approach and include the mayor's office of housing adult protective services it sounds like folks are doing things on their own and not collaborating and push for the things that work the past that have been defund for whatever reason to check they've made a huge difference in our workload and the lives of folks to commissioner walker. >> to that point at our
10:38 am
meeting we had that commissioner mccarthy mentioned the health department is engaged around those issues with us i'll suggest as we did yesterday we formalize that partnership and process for bringing them in as case management they're willing to do that for the funding so there's. >> we do provide some funding to nonprofit agencies to deal with issues around renter and i'm wondering if it wouldn't be appropriate to think about funding someone like senior exact action or specifically for seniors for that so the miss communication like this with adult protective services can be worked out in a dignified manner pare the commissioner melgar.
10:39 am
>> they have a robust service the problem is engaging the person person and keeping it to a point we'll get their cooperation we need the case management and the field presence to be able to do that i think that is where there is a miss connect between what is offered by the health department and the department of aging we've been creative with the department of building inspection trying to fwaej the services but you ready need to address the senior they feel comfortable and that's feel the came back rather than having them come in and really good programs to be funded that's unfortunate we will be more than helping happy to address this again. >> commissioner gilman. >> i wanted to add we should separate this case there is a
10:40 am
task force with the mayor's office of housing programs for fyi and hoarding and cluster conditions with all due respect a mental health problem there is different organizations maybe asking we could convene a task force or group between the mayor's office of housing and the adult protective services i'll argue that the healthy is a non-trainer for nonprofit folks give us recommendations on how to deal with that the mayor's office of housing will not deal with the clustering but fyi the windows and roof and different things on the issues. >> yes. we're familiar with that we've actually been is seen the hoarding conference we're aware of the pilot program with the department of afghanistan on clustering and part of that we
10:41 am
need the 0 cooperation of the individual and that's what we're dealing with the mental health that is a volunteer situation a conserveship is a high standard we're not there for senior citizens from that stand point we'll be revisit this issue and bring to bear every resource we can. >> yes. >> as a followup i think commissioner mccarthy at the meeting we started having a more formalized relationship with the department of public health is a great opportunity to follow up on that meeting because she also mentioned the mental health association or the society management society of medical examiner or whatever the acronym bringing them in to help
10:42 am
to facilitate that exact issue that is a really great opportunity and i want to you hope we can come together to support that i know is effects the housing division probable all the inspectors have - i'd like to formalize that. >> commissioner walker. >> i'd like to make that a case study we're seeing a lot more of these i'm willing to sit down with the people and get everyone at the table and have a discussion; right? and use it as a case study how we deal with those and who actually has the abilities and trying to figure out and often the private sector i'd like to do that maybe next week rosemary and have direction
10:43 am
and is it thirty days did we agree. >> the motion was to hold it in abeyance for 6 months as an in the. >> commissioner clinch said something about thirty days. >> to report back. >> with a schedule and a commitment from the property owner what is available and have goalposts and they need to be met over and over the abatement will be attached. >> we'll sorry commissioner and i want to restate the motion so we're clear. >> i have a motion by commissioner walker and a second by commissioner clinch to uphold the order of abatement and hold it in abatement for 6 months with an update and timeframe. >> through the chair can that
10:44 am
but with did property owner is cooperating with the services. >> needs to be with that correct. >> yeah. we'll have forgive madam secretary or madam chair would the clear road map be for here's our positive to be done and the roadblocks i really want to have 2 if that we'll have some sort of policy in place going forward for those situations because we're going to get more and more of them and for the families that are effected the immediate neighborhood to have an updated information on what ear doing. >> all right. >> i want to clarify that is not part of motion. >> no. >> no. >> separated but he understand what it is. >> yeah. >> to summarize i'll be reaching to the health department to the department of aging to the mental health association, ac f and the city
10:45 am
attorney's office and mayor's office of housing bringing all those considerate parts together to see what we can do and give you recommendations for the other cases like this we tried the past to formalize this in a resource rich situation and case management. >> for input into that. >> yeah. sorry i was going to add a couple of key organizations on the planning for elderly and the senior disabilities action. >> i'm familiar with jessica. >> commissioner walker. >> so attached to the motion on that particular project the motion is uphold the order of abatement, hold 40 in abeyance for 6 months with a report with a firm schedule that includes the cooperation of the property
10:46 am
owner. >> the property owner. >> the property owner. >> if i might i don't want to rain on the parade the code says when there recent a life safety hazard your uphold on order of abatement with safety issues the work and you - the work needs to consensus in thirty days and be completed in 90 days that is the extension. >> so let me ask you this. as i amend it what are the life safety issues can you staff tell me. >> yes. >> thank you we have life safety issues has to do with with the 2015 notice before you and previous with the heat and lack of water and egress of structure some are within the notice before you and some have order of abatement and this was one of the reasons that
10:47 am
precipitated this to the city attorney's office two years ago. >> i guess my motion low will be amended within thirty days the issues that are life safety issues have to take a permit out to resolve the issue within thirty days i mean if we could speculate the issues that are life safety and act on those it is the heat is there still no heat and water may i ask ask. >> rose mary can you answer that. >> are inspector. >> one moment let's see. >> staff. >> as of our last inspectors inspection no heat and the water service is not recontentions at that location. >> what was that last inspection. >> august of 2015 which we had
10:48 am
an inspection warrant. >> may ask the property owner through the chair. >> can you update us about the - >> it is not going to be - >> there's not going to be any heat because i got mad at the arabs about the oil i'll not pay any pennies towards that since i do have any problem i don't see why it is a problem for you for the heat turned off but the water can't be turned back on actually plumbing is raider that's why that was turned off a huge leak coming in and christmas or something about the roof that's to your knowledge i've put a new roof open the
10:49 am
place and it has a whole awe way of solar panels and to my knowledge there is no outside no outside problem with the roof i don't know where that came from and never seen a raccoon in any house. >> commissioner walker. >> we're obligated under the law to provide utilities to make sure those get fixed immediately just water and electric. >> in the electric works fine with the electric panels. >> i would amend the order to resolve the life safety issues by taking out permits within thirty day's work to be done on those issues within 90 days and
10:50 am
the balance of the notice of violations to be present back to us at the next meeting and it is scheduled fashion so the issues of health safety needs to be resolved immediately did that work. >> i can maybe better if it was clear exactly which of the items and the notice of violations. >> maybe to life safety. >> rosemary. >> commissioner gilman. >> i was wondering city attorney one motion only life safety and one 0 on the balance i know this is my first abatement hearing i'm not familiar what we can and cannot do but he life safety needs to consensus within thirty days and one motion and another motion with the balance of the issues. >> it could be either way your
10:51 am
modifying the order of abatement to correct. >> you want to amend the motion. >> i'll put it altogether the life saved issues need to be swift within thirty days to be completed in 90 days those include. >> the life safety are the lack of heat and water and egress obstruction. >> so those 3 issues need to be commenced and completed within 90 days as the next meeting when he will get a schedule a firm schedule of resolving the notice of violations. >> does it need to be resected no we've seconded commissioner mccarthy. >> we haven't a chance and that's being done if thirty days you know that commissioner walker. >> we're going to into the
10:52 am
rules. >> to that point what if it is not done within thirty days if we're acknowledging that i mean, i'm. >> it begins between thirty days. >> and needs to be completed workplace 90 days begin work within thirty and complete within 90. >> even that is a tall order bans what i'm seeing i mean, if we're going to be moving this - i mean. >> commissioner clinch. >> let's continue this we ask an update in a month and continue it if not technically upholding the abatement to give for time a. >> there are health issues. >> commissioner gilman. >> i apologize i'm super new but with the - i think on behalf
10:53 am
of the neighbors we need to take some action i think the toobldz and clocks i agree with you commissioner mccarthy is a tall order and probably we were setting up to move forward it will put pressure on the other city departments especially to play and expedite this and make it a priority for the department of public health protective services but somebody you know - i know rosemary that conserveship or someone manages their affairs is a high bar but people with safety issues we need to expedite the assistance and help with the homeowners that in a way to continue it the department will sit on their hands for the next thirty days we're overwhelmed with cases like that and in 2018 we can pass the budget and look at the programs in a way to find an
10:54 am
initiative to help ♪ it matter is a larger and large issue >> dueling noted. >> well post. >> i don't think i'll restate that roll call vote. >> commissioner president melgar commissioner clinch commissioner gilman commissioner konstin commissioner lee commissioner mccarthy commissioner walker that motion carries unanimously thank you. >> i hate to inject but will someone help ms. harris right now. >> will you talk with her. >> yes. >> i think we're asking you to explain the process to.
10:55 am
>> what happens today. >> to ms. harris and what needs to happen. >> it means to her. >> okay. i can take her out and explain i'll give her my card. >> that's nice. >> item f one to f-2 shall be heard together f one request for a rehearing for norway we go we've originally heard in the 2016 at the january 20th, 2016, the aa b uphold the island to require the appellant to remove the subject order of abatement and action by appellant for a rehearing. >> okay who we have from staff. >> i believe the appellant
10:56 am
comes and states their information then if it is compelling enough to at the rehearing up to the board we go into the second portion of the rehearing. >> okay. thank you. >> good morning. >> my wife owns one of the unit i'm her attorney head of the hoa and the issue i think before the commission here the fact it the commission didn't seem to understand what an easement is an easement is a right not a - i think commissioner walker mentioned a couple of times in january to refer to the area as the easement area that's correct but the way that is dbi has dealt with this and the way it was interpreted by the
10:57 am
constraint is that the area is the easement it is not the easement an easement is a right similar to the right to free speech you can't pick up a book and say that's the right to freedom and can't pick up a a picture or speech the right to free speech we allow people to express themselves an easement is a right to go across a piece of land didn't make sense show me a map of a think easement show me a right to free speech in this instance it the right to cross someone's land to get to an after a right on your own land but someone else's land the right to cross someone else's land within the area those 3 properties we have those
10:58 am
3 backyard and to get to various garages you cross other people's backyard to get to them and cross your own backyard to get into our own garage. >> you can't have an easement on your own piece of land therefore it is non-citizen california to refer to the whole area as an easement what you have is a right to cross on someone else's land to get to the avenue to decide whether an easement is interfered you look at the easement it says egress and ingress we've had discusses in november and january and one person 9 people testified said that they couldn't get to 45 after the cross is can you get to 46 avenue has nothing to do with with the easement area what
10:59 am
the person is sloped to do percent declaration for egress and ingress section two is what you're allowed to do as a easement holder that's what you're allowed to do on other people's land section 3 you're allowed to do how you're limited open your own land has to do with with the easement holder if i read section 3 it is clear it says you can't develop on your own land you can't engage it is unreasonably if it truant officers with the easement are the easement to get to 46 avenue so if you develop didn't interfere with that that's completely in compliance with the easement the easement law is such it if you have an easement if you have a piece of land with not easement and came up with all the things you can do a
11:00 am
thousand things and sold the easement what you then do you look at the list of things you can do and cross out the things you can't do because you sold the easement per the complainant from the last couple of the their saving the exact option you lose outlines rights that's not the way it works what happened in the situations that's when you sell our land you give up our rights the easement will be giving up the small environmental impact report amount to to the easement holder can do what they want to do that's pretty much what i have to say on the matter of easements in terms of sheds two sheds are put you up at diversities time you put up the first shed and about 2 1/2 years ago at that
11:01 am
that point we were selling that to hillary and want her to take her garbage out of the garage and put them into the shed we received a letter if laura one of the attorney involved her here. >> the letter so initiated us we decided to immediately precede at having hillary put up the second shed the first shed that we owned was given a notice of violation i went down to dbi i met with 2k07bd dewey i'm saying that is on the notice of violation he said he can't deal with that, i said have you studied easement this is wrong. >> he said come back when thai boss is here he went back and it
11:02 am
was i met with his boss was joe duffy and there was another gentleman at the meeting as well at that meeting they said what - we referred this to the city attorney and to give you the name the city attorney i phoned the city attorney about a week latter he said he hadn't received the file i said it was contained some legal stuff it contains a letter from an attorney and an easement attorney he said don't bother i got way too much to read i will not read it i heard nothing about, about two or three weeks i checked the online it said that has abated or changed it from being a violation to the wrong address. >> okay
11:03 am
you have 7 minutes. >> 25 seconds now. >> that is pretty much all i have to say and i'm open for questions if you have any. >> commissioner walker. >> i actually have a question to our attorney. >> this is a request for a rehearing a different party i understand i'm confused. >> typically only a party can bring a request for a rehearing the situation because the individual requesting the rehearing is claiming they've got lack of notice and this impacts their property and some dispute about the ownership of the shed he put up the proper party had given a notice of violation is correct owners. >> i think we asked as part part of you are action at the last
11:04 am
hearing asked the other shed opener be receive a notice of violation and go through the same process but didn't effect the first person it is not his shed the person that came before us; correct? >> the board didn't take a formal action to demand the department issue a notice of violation. >> we asked the department to do what they need to do to make it it consistent we did take an action on the first - >> commissioner mccarthy. >> just we went through this the condo and it is notifying them all the department has a policy you can't write one for everybody and write one and send to a to the homeowners
11:05 am
association correct me if i am wrong. >> i remember having that discussion and having directing the staff to. >> issue a notice to all. >> but wasn't it policy that the one vision would be kind of internally notified to all of the associations because you could have a hundred unit and can't write one for all but a notice of violation and director maybe help me out here. >> the bakery owners said the shed belonged to her therefore they dropped all the noithsdz and to one point everybody in that believe had a notice of violation. >> correct. >> ounce the bakery owner said that is my shed they drop everything else. >> why would we entertain a
11:06 am
rehearing ; right? >> i believe if i understand. >> we're talking to our attorney. >> go ahead. >> it is only about the rehearing the motion we're whether or not we want to consider any of the arguments about easement and stuff. >> just point out. >> no, no, no. >> let we're with our attorney thank you. >> do we really need to rehear or grant the motion for rehearing that is - >> my concern was that there was not evidence not first hearing to establish the ownership of the second shed and the order applies to both. >> i am don't know if you could come up please i want to jog the commissioners memory
11:07 am
once again correct me if i am wrong i don't know if so was commissioner clinch or myself or commissioner president melgar who owned the second shed someone said 31 they owned the second shed if i remember we said you understand what applies to shed one applies to shed 2 and they agreed. >> i remember that. >> we were talking about two sheds. >> you can't write one and ignore the exact same shed regardless of what was in it we're not talking about the garbage but a planning issue both sheds must go. >> we're saying that we thought that the shed was properly noticed. >> based on did notice issue to the - from the board didn't find that the party who is
11:08 am
requested the rehearing has brought up new evidence the stated standard for a rehearing is not met. >> the argument is easement the right to go through each easements. >> i agree a. >> we're not part of is it we're talking about because we wanted to discuss a new conversation about easement? >> again? >> again. >> are you asking me whether there is new evidence or legal error regard the easement issue and we got a schooling an easement here we went through that the whole you know i don't want to hash this but the fact that shed was not allowed with the homeowners association and planning regarded as a structure and had to be moved. >> okay. >> so what is the basis of the
11:09 am
rehearing and the rehearing requested a rehearing i didn't get notice i'm the owner of the sectional shed and he said the board was incorrect on the easement issue the board finds not evidence presented or justify a rehearing or possibly agree with the argument of the easement your erroneous and grant a rehearing. >> commissioner lee. >> commissioner mccarthy i'm the city attorney represented i think what we hashed out we thought the easement say we defined it the last time by erroneously defined this is not something we have to hear but
11:10 am
the appellant take up with someone else. >> the board can have a rehearing if new evidence was not considered the original hearing. >> we 2rer79d it inner credible. >> whether or not there is a legal error that's the basis to rehear it to determine i'm not sure the board cares the argument made by the requester case is essential identical who was presented. >> through the chair. >> yes. please. does the weigh in any way we represented the ownership of the shed were the room we have two owners of the shed does that have any basis. >> it the shed is owned by multiply people. >> we were informed that the
11:11 am
person gave testimony they owned the shed the last hearing i don't know who that person was now someone else saying they own the shed. >> as you recall the owner of the second shed was present and none stepped up. >> some of the neighbors claimed the second shed was on a different lot. >> i remember from the public came up and said the second he was could i about who owned the second unit but pressed he said it was another person that lived the building. >> the reason why we determined we're going to make the ruling on the both sheds the permit that the appellant applied for indicated they would so forth both sheds it is kind
11:12 am
of applies they own both shed. >> mr. duffy please. through the chair. >> yes. please. >> good morning commissioner, i want to make that comment there was a permit filed with dbi by the owner of the bakery to address both sheds so dbi at a point thought they were the owner now this gentleman that shows up today, we may very well own the shed but who owns the shed and cite this gentleman we did write the notice of violations for 3 condos i believe for the commercial and two other condos those are substantially closes by dbi by the way, not part of that meeting with the director duffy and senior inspector tom that has left the department i'm not sure what happened at the time he know we wrote the s n nov for
11:13 am
self block lots substantially pulled a cough back because of the wrong address but if we write anyone one and they'll come back and say a it's not my shed yesterday at a meeting the property at the city hall here with other city departments someone told me there were 3 condos that share this other shed so it is very, very difficult for us as the department to go and write to the notice of violation around this circle with regards to who owns what i remind i researched here a permit from someone taking overflow room of the sheds because they filed a permit to address the nov so i'm available for any questions by the way.
11:14 am
>> thank you. >> so if no one else want to weigh in i hear from the city attorney two possible areas to regrant the hearing on the notice issue and one of the new evidence this is presented. >> one on new evidence which is the - the new evidence that you may find was presented this individual came forward and said i and a couple of other people own the shed and the second basis the board finds that there has been sufficient aushlt with the legality of the acknowledged not the legality but the board wadz was wrong the initial. >> i think that the issues
11:15 am
that were presented by the appellant are not new we debated this the definition the easement was presented by several party and discussed for a very long time i'll not be open to a rehearing. >> i'll second open up for public comment. >> sure there is a motion and a second to not grant the request for rehearing is there p.m. on the motion. >> okay. seeing none if i could do a roll call vote. >> mr. duffy you want to say something. >> the motion to not grant the rehearing. >> commissioner president melgar. >> mr. duffy. >> i should add as well, there
11:16 am
is discussion going on with other city agencies how to resolve this at the building we had a good discussion at city hall with planning and the hauth and dbi we'll look forward to a resolution with city agencies and may not make everybody happy the building but options for taking care of the garbage simply remove the sheds it takes care of the nov thank you. >> okay back to the roll call vote commissioner clinch commissioner gilman commissioner konstin commissioner lee commissioner mccarthy commissioner walker okay. the that item passes unanimously item again general public comment any general public comment for items phenomenon the
