2:06 am
district issue first of all, it is a latino cultural district would you approve similar projects in chinatown i judge want to ask you i can't imagine a bunch of tech workers that can afford those spaces are the ones that are basically schedule to more often okay. would you approve that i don't think so anyway, the other issue the need for the eir first of all, from the beast and bryant the eastern neighborhoods plan is updateded outdated we've heard it you'll so this is such a massive project that demands and an eir on its own every single development in the pipeline actually is requiring an eir as far as the loss of pdr space i have this where are the plumps that will build this project get
2:07 am
their plumbing project if mcmillan plumbing is moved to san mateo thank you. >> (clapping.) >> are any other members of the public in support of appellant please step up otherwise mr. chair. >> if not go to the city departments on behalf of the planning department. >> ms. gibson. >> good afternoon supervisor peskin, supervisor president london breed and members of the board i'm listing ca is a acting environmental officer the question whether the project anothers 115 south van ness avenue kwflgz for a plan expectation in corneas with the california environmental quality act and the ceqa guidelines i'll be making a few opening remarks
2:08 am
before i i'm going to turn it over to linda who prepares the subject of the appeal i'll describe the project and highlighted two oishlgz raise in the appeal that ever rays on recent ceqa appeals before the board the project sight is three-quarters of an acre 33 square feet building that was occupied by mcmillan electric that moved to cesar chavez street the pivoting building b will be demolished the planning department issued a c pe on july the documented the review of the environmental effects and the construction of a 5 or 6 mixed use building and the project will include one and 56 dwelling units 26 onsite housing units and include one thousand square feet of commercial retail use
2:09 am
and 4 thousand trade shop space and parking for roughly 80 vehicles and one and 60 bikes that was subject to the interim controls the planning commission approved the project on august 11th with conditions one of the conditions requires the sponsor to work with the planning department to incorporate trade shop and other code compliant continent point quatro cultural district one of the appellants key arguments relates to the growth projections and the analysis in the eastern neighborhoods eir we heard much testimony on this today does the eastern neighborhoods uranium valid for the evaluation of subsequent measurements accident e even though it didn't match it was rays on appeal of the 90 none 16th street eir heard on
2:10 am
july 26th and the 200027 bryant appeal heard on the 16 the board denied the appeal realized on the eastern neighborhoods eir for subsequent projects as a refresher the planning department position on the eastern neighborhoods eir validity ate the growth boiled down to 3 points one no further environmental review environmental review is required for the rezoning and two the department has properly using the eastern neighborhood eir as the starting point in our environmental review for point development and 3 analyzing the impacts of subsequent projects we consider updated growth forecast as part of cumulative impact analysis ceqa and the ceqa guidelines clearly establish that once a project is approved no further environmental review is needed
2:11 am
unless the discretion approval that required we're not permit to reopen the eastern neighborhoods in the absence of a change to the eastern neighborhoods plan ceqa also mandated that project consistent with the density establish under the plan shall not be subject to additional environmental review only to examine where there are peculiar issues to the site we're not identified in the eir accordingly the planning department completed a project environmental review for the 115 south van ness project we termed that will in the result in the peculiar or site specific impact the analysis identified significant impacts pertaining to noise and architecture local retail use from the eastern neighborhoods eir that applies to the project and second argument raised in the appeal gentrification and
2:12 am
displacement constitute changed circumstances that were not anticipated to the eastern neighborhoods eir this issue is familiar to the board as it was raised on that is bryant appeal blah, blah, blah. >> it doesn't matter. >> (a gavel). >> go ahead. >> as we explained those are social and economics impact not subject to the ceqa review until to a physical impact upon did environment no evidence supporting in argument and as staff available today, we note that socioeconomic issues and land issues and the planting is alledgedlys in the context outside of ceqa review with that, i'm going to turn it over to linda that will finish our presentation and note other
2:13 am
planning department staff here including claudia that can take questions about the questions to address gentrification and displacement we also have chris who helped to prepare the c p examples and tipping i can't chang and who is the current planner for the project. >> ms. gibson to the arguments that some of the individuals who testified made with the changed transportation circumstances our response to that. >> as part of our analysis for subsequent projects in the eastern neighborhoods and area we looked at where there is any project site specific and take into account updated growth forecast for transportation analysis we look at the most relevance available modeling that is included as sf champion
2:14 am
model that look at the cumulative impacts in 2040 we just want that analysis. >> specifically to the piece of testimony by one individual that referenced an article recently in the newspaper about the number of tmc vehicles on the street have jumped to 45 thousand is that accounted for in the model. >> service providers like lyft and uber are we're not specifically evaluated in the eastern neighborhoods internal revenue because this is business model didn't exist at the time and at this point in our review of projects we have traffic counts when conduct that take into account any service provider that is part of general traffic and it is when we looked this we don't find that is changes the overall conclusion
2:15 am
with regards to the eir and the subsequent projects in a meaningful way it is something that are out there on the street but not re89 to an individual project impact doesn't have relevance. >> and requirement to the bakersfield argument the representative of the appellant made any specific responses to the bakersfield argument. >> the bakersfield case raised an issue that socioeconomic result in blight e blight that blight relating to businesses that have been displaced through development can cause blight blight is an aesthetic impact it was amended through sb 43 to state that aesthetic impacts shall not be considered
2:16 am
significant impacts under ceqa for projects that are transient ordinary and meet criteria we've elevate this project on 115 south van ness and noted it qualifies that's with the criteria and pursuant to ceqa we can't conclude those and that case is not relevant to the adequacy of this eir. >> and counselor burn you agree with that. >> deputy city attorney mirena burns. through the chair with regards to the legal analysis bakersfield case drew a link within the socioeconomic ways because of project reviewed were the wal-mart style projects and there was some evidence in the
2:17 am
record because of those projects being approved outside of the historic downtown corridor of bakersfield will draw people out of the city and cause vacancy and the court found evidence of blight a physical change in the environment related to things like litter and empty storefronts so here we'll need to have a cause link between the socioeconomic impacts and physical change to the environment. >> my question was specific to ms. geb sons representation relate to a transient orient development the state legislature took away aesthetics impacts. >> from the project q. at the
2:18 am
a transportation we're no longer allowed to look at physical impacts that's correct. >> supervisor campos this is not out of departments 10 minutes. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you, mr. chair i was going to ask the questions you asked before i follow-up i want to ask something separate bat discrepancy in the numbers address that through the chair or something that will be addressed by the next person. >> les can gibson we're not clear on what the question is we've added the relevance of the projection to the analysis and the question of the validity of our reliance on the eastern
2:19 am
neighborhoods eir we report and i can look for that the numbers report on what the latest estimates are of the amount of development within - we can provide those numbers but not roll call what the question was so if you can focus the question for me. >> we talked about some of the differences and the protection i want probation officer make sure what your response is to that and the impact on the eir analysis. >> why not look for that information and provide that answer after the presentation okay. >> and then going back to the issue of how the gentrification and some of the other changes can lead to a physical impact what are the kinds of thing they'll make that to show
2:20 am
substantial evidence of that. >> the evidence that would support that linkage is kind of something that our city attorney referenced in regards to the bakersfield case a linkage between the socioeconomic effects that relates to a effect that could be that it is a direct or indirect link that will exacerbate the socioeconomic effect with regards to the points that are raised regarding displacement the nature of the displacement concerns that are raised are ones of the affordability, the economic, the income of the individuals raised and the fact in their being required to relocate outside of the city and that is in some
2:21 am
concerns raised relating to traffic impacts the additional commuting that goes with each individuals need to do at the faster distances if there were evidence of that that needs to take into consideration and fully access what about the folks moving on in from areas they were living further way away and their commutes are shortened depend on where their jobs are that's the physical effect in terms of how it relate to vehicle trips and air quality, etc. at this point it is complex and there's not been study that is - we're aware of that can give us subsequent evidence to support an analysis that supports that linkage in this case that we are responding to
2:22 am
the information providing - provided to us we don't we're not generating that study ourselves. >> from our perspective they needed to provide that information? >> yes. but i'll say at the present time, the eastern neighborhoods eir we looked at this issue and recognize there is a relationship between where people live and the amount they drive there - the eastern neighborhoods rezoning will result in changes to where people live they acknowledge there would be issues that relate to gentrification and we acknowledge that and we noted that we don't have any evidence or any way of analyzing at the level this is needed to support the ceqa analysis what the change physical changes could be related so we can't speculate at the level of ceqa we're looking at it again, a policy issue that is clear that those changes are
2:23 am
concurring and long-range planning to address the concerns without the need of the sort of technical rigor we're required to do in ceqa addressed in a policy way more easily. >> is any of that evidence around what you discussed. >> no has not been. >> okay. i know detail be more questions make sure that you finish our presentation and more questions. >> linda now. >> thank you listing ca is a good afternoon. i'm from the planning department staff the remaining issues are under one that conditions in the eastern neighborhoods and mission planned areas are changed such that new impacts are concurring in particular in regards to the in question what quatro
2:24 am
criminality district and the cpe can't royal on the eastern neighborhoods that benefits they've not been adequately provide and 3 the project is not consistent with the policies of the general and eastern neighborhoods plan in regards to impacts on historic architectural resources projects specific analysis determine the existing building is not a ceqa historical resource and the project site is in the located women's network for a sustainable future a ceqa historical district the quatro cultural latino district not a historical district the area was he previously surveyed and it was identified other smaller district didn't identify the latino cultural district district as a historical district under ceqa the appellant has no basis to support the project site is within ceqa historical district and the property a contributor
2:25 am
to a historical district or that the project will have significant impact on a historical resource the i'd like to take the opportunity e planner is available to discuss the historic resources should you have any questions with that said, the support of cultural diversity is an important issue and claudia flores with the citywide planning division will address those issues should you have any questions the appellant further argues the claimed community benefits of the eastern neighborhoods plan have not been implemented or under professionalism as discussed in the october response of public benefits was approved in 2008, as shown in attachment d to that response the public benefits have provided as development is approved and building permits are issued the appellant
2:26 am
commends it didn't comply with the policies of general plan briefly the project has policies and regulations was evaluated in the cpe checklist and the determination the citywide planning division no conflict of sixth impacts not previously identified in the eastern neighborhoods eir will result that concludes my presentation. thank you. >> thank you very much and now we will have seeing no other names on the roster, for any questions at this time we'll ask the project sponsor to come forward up to 10 minutes. >> thank you board president peter's with lennar multi
2:27 am
families we are little the subsidy of lennar but i want to make it clear i've not had a chance to speak with we're a separate entity from lakeshore that is developing a shipyard so through we're proud of our our alleviation we speeds in urban apartment community so just to be clear we started in 2014 reaching out to the community and trying to understand the feasibility of this development proposal we also start with the proposal that was 12 percent affordable and consistent with the current inclusionary housing ordinance it was a non-union development proposal i stand in front of you today very proud of what we've
2:28 am
achieved over the last two years we are consistent with prop c as three percent inclusionary and we're one hundred union we have gone through newcomers technical studies we have participated obviously moratoriums and interim controls, gone through the prop c measure and we were granted a conditional use authorization in september so today, we ask you to respect the ceqa process we worked collaboratively with staff to insure that we dot all the i's and cross the t's and we were respectfully requesting you uphold the ceqa approval i'm going to turn it over to our land use attorney alex to get into the study we prepared for staff. >> game-changer supervisor president london breed and supervisors law group to lennar
2:29 am
i wanted to add to the planning department or the city attorney's office only to reiterate the appeal focuses only on the community plan exemption or cpe prepared by the planning department compares to ceqa as indicated in our letter to you substantial evidence exists to support the cpe and no evidence has been presented that indicates a new or more significant impact will be created not covered or analyzed by the eastern neighborhood eir studies numerous technical reports and studies prepared by exerts that support in determination the claims rays in the appeal on affordability and displacement as no evidence staff they're not ceqa issues the studies and information provided by the appellants an gentrification fail to establish
2:30 am
the link between those issues and this project and specifically where this project will as a result of the issues either individually or cumulatively create a physical impact on the environment the appellant has cited the bakersfield case but failed to meet the standard in the bakersfield case not provided the technical analysis that cause the link the project is in a latino cultural district it is not a historic resource under ceqa the mission district including the area that comprised the latino district has been surveyed and was found not a historic resource substantial evidence unfortunate record and the builders city's file to support those conclusions as to the claims that 9 - and excuse me - - this is all bull. >> sir, thank you thank you,
2:31 am
thank you thank you >> (clapping.) >> i realize that we're all passionate about this particular issue i'm asking each of you, you had our opportunity to speak we want to move forward and give others an punt opportunity to speak when that is done the board will make a decision in the meantime to move forward i'm going to ask the members of the public to please refrain from outbursts thank you very much. >> please continue. >> again as to appellant's claims the bakersfield stands for the proposition that a special review is for the cultural district that is not true with the evidence before you bakersfield set the standard to link the social impacts to
2:32 am
the physical impacts that standard has not been met a lay men's opinion is not enough and the professional opinion has not been priority give you a little bit of background the project is consistent with the latino cultural district it creates housing and that is a big issue at the planning commission and one that the project as peter not working hard 3 trade shops and a new corner retail and commented to working with the district 8 sfroefz to identify and make sure the use of those spaces meets the need and using 100 percent union labor the project as allowed mcmillan a local contractor to relocate one mile down the street and hire 25 new employees high pagan jobs
2:33 am
and finally the project will provide three percent affordable housing in compliance with voter prop c the only pipeline project providing this percentage of onsite affordable housing in closing the issue in consideration whether the cpe prepared it legally okay. the standard is whether substantial evidence exists in the record to prepare a cpe as noted by staff and included in the administrative record there is subsequent record to support that finding the legal support has been met no further appeal is needed this comes before the board and in each case the ceqa document is upheld the staff did a tremendous job in making sure all projects comply with ceqa and presenting a requiring technical studies to make sure no in your impacts exist and
2:34 am
substantial evidence in the record to support their finding this appeal is no different than those other cases there is nothing unique about this project or this appeal that warrants a different detector it is location in the latino cultural dpishth display change the requirements under bakers fields that has not been met nothing indicates the city's determination is wrong or not support by substantial evidence news i thus, the dwp e cpe should be upheld the issues are policy issues not ceqa issues we respectfully request you follow staff's recommendation and deny the appeal and uphold this. >> at this time i just want to let members of the audience i know a number of you are here also for the joint meeting between the san francisco board of supervisors
2:35 am

2:51 am
american we were sdrushdz we don't like it when you come to the board of supervisors and city saying you don't want different people in the neighborhood you're exactly the same as americans across the country that don't want immigrants it is the exact the same attitude so be the kind of person to have new people into the neighborhood or the kind of people want to keep people like you out of neighborhood i want to build more housing and people available to live here and a wide diversity of people i'm not going to pretend i know who will live in the building. >> for members of the public i realize there are a lot of passionate people but let's get through that and i'll appreciate if you refrain from the out burst thank you very much. >> next speaker, please. >> game-changer supervisors i'm jose i'm with the san

261 i have an obligation for the representatives we represent over 5 thousand one of the comments that i want to mention is about the community we represent you know our members live in the area also, we represent community and i want to just to be clear a topic here and i don't mean to offending everybody respect every single person you know as a building trade i'm here to support them the brothers and carpenters and plumps and sheet metal workers so i support this project and move forward thank you. >> thank you and just to be clear this is for anyone to speak who is actually opposed to the appeal. >> next speaker, please. >> okay seeing members of the
2:57 am
public that want to speak in opposition to the appeal tierpt public comment is closed. >> all right. now the appellant will have up to 3 minutes for a rebuttal >> thank you so much to say in so little time the questions were what is the impact of the cumulative emphatic that market-rate development this and all the other ones on the latino cultural district i think we've provided substantial evidence that will be negative that puts businesses nonprofits and resident at risk who are already at risk and the second question was what do we do to mitigate
2:58 am
we've not gotten answers to those answers in fact, not in the eastern neighborhoods plan that those questions were asked because the latino cultural district was not in existence contaminate so the impacts couldn't have been studied and no subsequent evidence to support this conclude they didn't study it our job is to provide substantial evidence in a fair argument can be made that it should have been studied and substantial evidence consists of facts and raefshl assumptions predicted on facts and can include expert opinion not the technical friends analysis suggested by the project sponsor if doesn't puts
2:59 am
the planning department on notice this should be studied we've provided more than enough evidence that that requirement has been met again due to shortage of time i'll point you to pages 7 and 8 of my brief the district is also historical in nature as i said earlier not a historical designation in order to have this characteristic and when the eastern neighborhoods eir did it's search to see if they're looking for historical assets the latino cultural district was not in existence how could they have found it as a secret geological area of historical interest and finally there was the issue on bakersfield about aesthetics i've read that case probably half a dozen times and the project i didn't and read
3:00 am
the subsequent cases not references to aesthetics by green house gas emissions and the sdrupgs in the community and so forth clearly aesthetics is an issue but not the only issue that bakersfield touches on and finally, the issue of consistency with the area plan that was supposed to provide affordable housing and much larger numbers than provided under the eastern neighborhoods plan supposed to respected the diversity of our communities. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> okay. this hearing has been held and is now filed this item is in the hands of board. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you very much madam president and you know, i think you think i've been on the board
3:01 am
of supervisors 8 years and you never know how those things will go until you come to the these chambers and go through the process and let me say i came in into that repeating thinking that i was going to vote a certain way i've said this before i'll say this again that is very challenging to deal with the issues of gentrification with the issue of the displacement and the context of a ceqa appeal and i want to say this to the appellant and to the community because i think that has to be said i say this is as someone that has been fighting stloondz alongside we have to do a better
3:02 am
job of making the legal arguments around ceqa we have to and i actually think that that point that was made by the planning department staff is really important the issue of substantial evidence on physical impacts but i also believe though that it is not on the appellants he actually think that is on the city and one of the things i'll ask of the planning department and i know this is not probably the place to make an official request will follow-up after this i do want to have an analysis done by the planning department and will do it in writing to make that official that actively looks at how gentrification impact physically the
3:03 am
environment potentially i think that we need that analysis done i don't know if this is something that could be done by an outdoor city without the support and help the city i'll ask that. >> with that said, i came into in hearing thinking i'll vote against the appeal but for those of you who wondered in public comment makes a difference this public comment changed minds this is a perfect illustration it does and specifically want to thank the representative from behavior for helping to change my mind and her comments about donald trump and her comments about nativeism
3:04 am
i actually think on the eir i'm not happy about the comments by the appellants but the thing about those appeals we have the ability as a board to use our own independent judgment and assessment here i believe what is different about bryant the bryant street project is the latino cultural district i came into this thinking that case was not made by the representative from behaviarf helped to - the person that referenced the
3:05 am
latinos in gang activity in the past thank you for kind of shedding light on this issue for me because i do believe enough questions have been raised by the individualized of the record notwithstanding about the questions about the appeal to call for an analysis by the city i think we do need to go back and do further environmental review that looks of the at the issue the displacement beyond that in the legal analysis it is what it is we'll make that - i want no part whatsoever in the age of donald trump with the kind of hateful ignorant language and rhetoric
3:06 am
that was presented by those two individuals and i'm willing to think sued and taken to court for saying that bring that on but if there is a time to stand by do the right thing that is today and i also want to send the message to the other projects that are coming down the pipeline for the impact the latino cultural district let that be a message how you should precede because if there is a perfect example how node not to proceed with that, colleagues as a district 9 supervisor like to make a motion to move forward item 37 and 38 and with respect
3:07 am
to item 38 to include in the motion faster analysis is needed on the environmental impact of displacement and gentrification on this community and specifically the latino cultural district and table item 36. >> okay supervisor campos has made a motion seconded by supervisor avalos supervisor avalos. >> thank you i don't know if i can be agree eloquent as supervisor campos i felt that for the past 8 years i've never ever uttered from my seats from public comment but found the comments are so offends from one individual talking about. >> (clapping.) >> where we were in the noticing and in the noticing i was working in the community and
3:08 am
trying to - at the time in the 90s two years ago october 1996 the chronicle was trying to over exercise the gang district and painted the cloth of young people red and make them pure like gang members that's where i was in the 90s fighting that crap to think we have a project before us that is defend with such ignorance is beyond the pail we have a system nationally that was repudiated in the election of donald trump but we know where the country is blue that system is thriving that system actually allows for the type of development that is happening in
3:09 am
san francisco that leads to wealth concentrating more and more to the wealthy and the people public school low income working-class getting the displaced and not getting fair share people saw the economic system and the politicians that support the system are do not support working people to think that only happens in the red states or red counties is a fallacy happens in san francisco i feel look the board of supervisors especially the progressive wing that is concerned has been fighting for that forever i'm totally happy to support the motion made by supervisor campos to uphold the appeal on this project. >> thank you supervisor avalos supervisor mar. >> thank you, madam chair. >> sir you're out of order. >> i'm going to miss 20 these
3:10 am
two guys sitting across i'm going to join with any comrades in supporting the appeal thank you so much to the artists that have come out the artists and the latino community and organizers and activists the small business leaders and others for giving us the political context of what is happening in the mission district and other advanced gentrification advanced displacement neighborhood we also know that many other neighborhoods are coming next as well i want to say that i did meet with the developer and i wanted to thank lennar multi family and others i think that is not necessarily about this project it is a bigger political context that is being discussed but wanted to say that 100 percent union labor the 6 sfmade maker
3:11 am
spaces moving from the grandfathered percentages to the much higher inclusionary to the 15 percent but 10 percent affordable goal is commendable but i'll standby with any colleagues and the community that have said the 1y508 eastern neighborhoods eir is way updated and not seem there is any plan in place to update the board eir i think that cumulative impacts has raised by mr. weaver and others are critical for us to been not necessarily looking at it project by project but the city needs a much better plan when the planning department staff said we're trying to address the displacement and the socioeconomic impacts in other ways i've not seen enough to show me that's a serious effort a serious displacement in the
3:12 am
mission district and other places i want to cite not only miriam and karen berkley for innovation and the urban displacement numbers but also the budget and analyst that was commissioned by supervisor campos the mission district is rapidly gunmen phil ginsberg the push out of latinos and seniors and artists and disabled people is to rapid i'll give the numbers from the b l a 60 percent of the population was latino in 20002015 dropping below 50 percent and 2025 dropping half and the unable of wealthy people doubling with all due respect to the wealthy people that spoke in favor the project the families and others
3:13 am
that are displaced rapidly but the wealthy is doubling to over 26 percent in 2025 the number is reduced in half and 21st percent to 11 percent in 2025 a serious situation soifshg and families for the demographics in the mission i feel strongly as people talk about newcomers that has to be based on respect for latino cultural dictate and a history that has been developed from irish to latino immigrants and has to be based on respect of that cultural heritage for the latino considerate that is an important part of san francisco blood and i wanted to thank all the people to defend the mission district and really stand up for a city that has a
3:14 am
soul i'll be voting in support of motion by supervisor campos. >> thank you supervisor peskin. >> (clapping.) >> thank you madam president i want to society myself with the comments made by the maker of the motion but colleagues given the grave outlet of the situation i want to make a motion to allow the project sponsor that attempted to speak to address this body for not to exceed 2 minutes if not objection like to make that motion. >> supervisor i'm sorry supervisor campos is there any objection. >> without objection we'll lie you to answer questions supervisor peskin? and are you asking questions. >> no, i want to give him the opportunity to address that body as the project sponsor. >> i've done i object. >> we'll have to take a vote. >> i withdraw my motion.
3:15 am
>> okay supervisor avalos object and supervisor peskin withdrew his motion. >> okay. >> supervisor cowen. >> thank you thank you. good evening and thank you for weighing in on this weighty policy that is an interesting conundrum we're in the same situation time and time georgia again, i've building that a compelling argument was made and we should begin to direct staff to begin to incorporate displacement and i also think in addition to incorporating the analysis of the displacement of what a project will have on a neighborhood we should be look atth total cumulative impact of projects that are in the pipeline and this is a particular problem we continue to have in district 10
3:16 am
specifically in potrero hill the cumulative impact we're approving projects individually but not paying attention to the environment the entire landscape those projects will be coming alive in i think that we are becoming out of balance and it is important for us to be in sync so today you know the conversation is also about really brewing for . >> couple of years we need a sea change and be moving in a different direction if the development shouldn't be displacing people but development should be widening the intent and bringing in and welcoming people into san francisco and certainly i've said many times before the board in the land use committee that i believe we need to reexamine and make tweaks to the eastern
3:17 am
neighborhoods area plan so supervisor campos i will are supporting you today. >> (clapping.) >> thank you supervisor campos. >> thank you. >> again i'll ask the members of the audience please refrain from vocal expression. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you very much i want to be clear in part of the motion that i presented as planning does it's analysis going forward that you know the basis behind the motion and the look the focus on displacement is the connection between displacement and the physical effects on the environment and that is what was mentioned not hearing that was traffic, air quality and other physical impacts i think that is important for that to be considered in the analysis and, of course, what you it
3:18 am
unique about this project the first project that is taking place that can have an impact on the latino cultural district want to make sure that is understood relative to the motion. >> thank you supervisor cowen. >> thank you i know we're talking in context of a ceqa appeal a clunky tool we're trying to use to bring about this detail of change supervisor campos with your willing to amend our motion i want to see the total cumulative impacts of projects i'd like to see that also analyzed. >> yes. yes. >> thank you. >> okay seeing no other names on the roster, supervisor campos has made a motion to approve items 37 and 38 with proposed amendments madam clerk take the amendments separately. >> no madam president and and

3:48 am
amend it although the united states will have a president that demonstrated a lack of respect and comma not change who we are and what we stand for recommendations i made because you know in my opinion i don't want to as the board of supervisors to stoop to the level of our president-elect and last week us to focus on the positive aspects of san francisco. >> and thank you supervisor tang and i'm sorry that i haven't had a chance to review those particular amendments but i do want to make that clear based on the comments, based on you know the tone that was set by the president elect we want to send a strong message he guess i understand your suggestions to be positive and be above that i think we need to
