>> i have a question on slide 15 about the workforce development do you know how many individuals with going into construction because this is a challenge. >> i'll bring up family citibuild ken to answer that question. >> good afternoon, commissioners ken citibuild manager before i begin i want to acknowledge one of the officers that works on ocii projects so for that citibuild this is our 26 cycle we have 85 percent graduation rate and allocate 85 graduates get into construction and as mr. lee mentions our cycles are 3 and the sponsor from ocii and a lot of post workers development we receive funding from the chase center to
2:02 pm
add in special training kindly this year we'll have 4 cycles for the specific training and one the challenges in the workforce are specific trades for example, type 1 iron work and engineering and masonry's those trades they don't have enough working for local residents to do the work that is where it drags the percentage for ocii and for this specific chase center i'll put in a plug the deadline for the application and 4157014848 that's it our main number we'll do a followup and provide them with an application and the train starts in the middle of march 14 and saturday and sunday class for people out of school get into the program and that will be
2:03 pm
graduating may 20th and focusing on the trades we'll having challenges so be hard workers and we have trainers coming to train the students and similar specific work on the warriors arena we hope to do do training and increase the participation of local residents in the district 10 resident so those are some of the trades we've identified and some carpenters and laborers from the community and those numbers will boost up the local hire participation with the city hall training we pope hope to go ahead the individual in and for future ocii projects and opportunities can be for local residents some of the special ways we're addressing the challenges. >> can you leave the sflierz so we can share it with others. >> i'll provide did flier this afternoon as soon as i get back
2:04 pm
to the office and mr. lee and mr. lee can forward it to the commission. >> those are. >> k e n and last name n i m a manager. >> i want you to 41570148 h-3 the main number for the worries training but my number directly 4157014853. >> you'll be getting a lot of calls. >> that's in my direct line. >> if you have any questions any of the other programs we've been around inform 11 years and happy to provide that service our main goal to do as much as
2:05 pm
possible previously in the womb i mentioned appendixes is the highest in the department and in doing parliament across the city we have an average of 200 plus placement if ocii and not people sponsored into the trades those are strong - they're not the describe fabulous so the people that have opportunities and females on the projects wouldn't get the chance and with other specific challenges for the background so another round of applause way to address the challenges the mayor started a program at organ it is specifically targeting individuals from the
2:06 pm
intervention to help to work with the community and a staff that is working with the population to get them integrated and we put them in other places too. >> can you add. >> for citibuild academy because of trade you need to say a high school diploma if you don't we have a huge program that gets you to one the cbos we'll work with you and a driver's license and be able to pass a drug test those are similar to the chase center the goal not to train someone for training but get them a job right now. >> so it is paid through the city and county of san francisco and program is free and any program through our officers are free. >> so as a followup to that if someone is interested in the
2:07 pm
citibuild program and they're in the san francisco kind of other program established programs can we switch over or a new entrance. >> anybody that want to get into the program of course, our case managers will see if they're able to commit to and that 9 weeks every weekend could go 8 hours a day and give up that time to be able to go into a career you want and train someone not just for a job but a career in construction and get them into the process that will really make more money and be productive and get back into the community. >> the other question i have i keep on hearing about the lack of workers or businesses in the specialized areas.
2:08 pm
>> want be a speciality in construction and get folks that come in the industry or picked up by employers and want to branch out in their businesses most of the business owners and construction have ground that way it seems to me that the unions are critical how do they recruit folks into the trade i'm assuming their assist. >> they're part of program with the recruitment and the flyers for the specific trades as an entry the biggest part as you've seen data in the san mateo we have a 3 percent unemployment rate and in california 2.9 and getting people into the trade itself we're brandishing of branching
2:09 pm
out to - to get whoever we can who is interested and put those traudz frankly their touch of tough iron workers and earlier today we have contractors contacting us for journey level only we have workers and now with a different ratio with the department you have to have a certain ratio ever journeymen so getting people in with the skill and not enough local resident in the trades our carpenter we have a lot and can get more we'll get to people into the jobs but a trade they'll have special training and for example, transitional plumbing you have to wait is on a list and provided special train and i don't on the last time we have a
2:10 pm
deal with the electrical union individuals actually can skip a test if they graduated from the program to be trthsz that's an accomplishment to get some of the young men and women that is trying to get into the trades and a special program once your electrici electrician. >> the cycle is the 9 weeks. >> no city college semester is 18 weeks because of extra need of having not enough workers and
2:11 pm
trying to moot that right of before we except from october to december we have the 9 week program and focus on the specific trades and by the time they graduate there is jobs available so they'll not sit at home and wait. >> excellent. >> so we'll more conversation but other questions thank you very much thank you very much gratifying to hear not only work but the fact that our policies have on san franciscans. >> does anyone have any other questions we have a couple of quick questions one quick can someone telling me what the zip code of the western edition i tried to look it up none of the zip codes for the western edition maybe someone can tell me that and see what is good morning in the western edition
2:12 pm
let's see - a mr. washington is there a what's zip code. >> 94115. >> 115. >> and 94117. >> i would assume the zip codes from where the business codes are coming from i saw this the south of market and north of maeshthd and dog patch was prominent with obviously areas where professional services will have their businesses and on the construction side it is seemed like bayview hunters point is a strong that means it is because it is cheaper to operate there with the construction companies they're great. >> i imagine storage space and that's good for the community having a lot of presence. >> can we get a map also
2:13 pm
(laughter) mr. lee. >> the report is getting longer and longer. >> make that smaller i had a question this is - yeah. i love all the numbers the only kind of bigger picture question i have i think was we talked about this before in terms of folks we think are available; right? we're drawing from the city lbe certified pool where i'm not talking about a available study but trying to understand of all for next time maybe an off calendar memo what is just looking at the database of at least on paper available certified firms how many are we picking up on our contract. >> because on the labor side whether you look at the numbers basically, their off the chart you, i mean they they consistent
2:14 pm
based on the zip codes out of identified latino and african-american are centrally building the city we are buildings our projects and interesting the aligning are thirty percent are not on this report not representative of workers i don't understand why it is the case so but the point that i'm interested in is where is the we find folks where are the contacts i have to give them kudos i hear their listening and going to the city and making efforts and doing a ton of stuff i'm going to remember that every time one comes up to us i'll be interesting in understanding where folks come from where they
2:15 pm
come to the the labor side from the units or the community-based organizations or on the business side where the contractors go are they being divided to they're thinking of - i see lots of names on the business side i'm wondering are we spreading the wealth, if you will, on the business side. >> i can provide some next time the distribution of firms on relative to the database in the city i have done some of that statistics with the bayview area not all the projects as a whole. >> we're running out of time i promised everyone would be ousted out of here by now i appreciate that report everything in the report and efforts by the citibuild somehow
2:16 pm
we lowest the contractors know we appreciate with only billions of work that's the main thing that is really, really an incredible impact thank you so much any other questions workshop no questions. >> no. >> other than to listen to mr. lee i've jotted down the zip codes can we finish next item, please. >> the the next order of business item 6 public comment on number one agenda items madam chair i have two speakers ace washington. >> mr. washington if the commentary not be repetitive okay. >> okay. thank you. >> well, we're getting close

2:22 pm
2:23 pm
2:24 pm
>> hi, i'm corn field and welcome to doing building san francisco, we are doing a special series, called stay safe, how you can stay in your home safely and comfortable, and we know that an earthquake is coming and there are things that you can do to reduce the effects of the earthquake on your home. let's take a look at that. >> here at the spur urban center on mission street in san francisco talking about staying in your home after an earthquake. i have guests today, pat buscavich and his dog, harvey and david, and both structural engineers and we want to talk about things that you might do before an earthquake to your home to make it more likely
2:25 pm
that your home will be ha bitable after an earthquake, what should we do? both structural and maybe even important non-structural things. >> you hear about how to prepare an earthquake kit and brace your book shelves and water tank and that is important. what you have to be careful is make sure that you are not going the easy things to make yourself feel better. if you have a bad structure, a bad building, then you need to be looking at that and everything that you do to keep your collectables in place is small and compared. if you have taken care of your structure, then there is a lot of stuff that you can do in your house that is non-structural and your chimney and water tank. >> let's talk about what the structural things might be. >> and he is exactly right. you don't want to make the deck chairs safe on the titanic, it is going down, you are going down, you have to make sure that your house is safe. there are basic things that you need to do including bracing the water heater, not just
2:26 pm
because of fire hazard but because of the water source and the damage, but basic things are installing anchor bolts, and adding plywood and strapping your beams to column and posts to footings and foundations are really easy things to do and most contractors can do the building department is set up to approve this work, and these are things that every home oer should do, and it is a little harder because you have to get a building permit and hire a contractor. but you want to be able to after a big earthquake to climb in bed that night and pull the covers up and say i don't have to worry about going to a government shelter. >> that is the main focus that it is great to have an earthquake kit to be able to bug out for 72 hours. here is a better idea, stay in your own home and in order to do that you have to be make sure that your structure is okay. if you have a house, the easy things to do with the wood construction is feasible. if you have a renter or you
2:27 pm
live in a concrete building, you need to talk to the building own , and make sure they have done their due diligence and find out what the deficiencies are. >> when i have looked at damaged buildings,vy seen that a little bit of investment in time and money and structural work provides great dividends. >> especially if it is the wood frame, typical house that you can do the things that i was talking about, the anchor and the plywood in the first garage area, you know if you refinanced in the last three years, get some of that savings and it is a really good investment. and the other thing that i try to tell people, earthquake insurance is not the solution to the shelter in place, if there is a big earthquake and your building is damaged, you are not in your house, you may be somewhere else, if you work in the city, it is going to be really hard to commute from sonoma, you want to do what is necessary so that your house is retrofitted and a couple of years of earthquake premium
2:28 pm
could get you to a level that you could be in the house after a significant earthquake and it may have damage and there is still a shelter in place where you are at home and you are not worried for the government taking care of you and you are living in a place where you can go to work and you want to have your wood frame house is really easy to get to that level. on top of the wood frame house, i mean every wood frame house in the west half of the city have a water tank and the water tank fall over because they are gas fired and start fires. and that is something that you could do for yourself, and for your neighbors and for the whole city is make sure that your water tank is braced. >> if you look at the studies that are predicting on fires, we are going to have a lot of fires and for every water tank that is braced there is a potential of one less fire that the fire department is going to have to fight and we don't want to have any more fires than we need to. so bracing the water heater is the first thing that you want to do. >> and so easy, and you go on-line and you google, earthquake, water and heater and you google the sites where
2:29 pm
you can find the details and you can put them out there on the hardware store and you can hire a small contract tore do that for you. that is a couple of hundred bucks, the best investment. if you are in other types of building it is complicated. if you are in a high-rise building you just can't anchor your building down because there are no anchor bolts, but at that point, the tenant should be asking questions of the owner's and the managers about earthquake preparedness >> and don't take the easy answer, oh, our building is safe it was designed to code. that is not the right answer, ask the tough questions and see if you can get a report that has been given to you. >> what is the right question? will i be able to stay in my home after the expected earthquake? is that a good question to ask? >> yeah, you may be more specific if you talk to the owner, if it is not a recent building, if it is ten or 20 years old see if they had an inspection done and there you will have a written before that will tell you all about the
2:30 pm
structure. >> thanks, pat. >> thanks, harvey. and thanks david for joining us and thank you for joining us on >> welcome to wednesday february 22nd, regular meeting of the public safety and neighborhood services committee, i am supervisor ronan the chair of the committee to my right is vice chair supervisor, and we expect supervisor fewer shortly. the clerk is erica major and i would also like to thanks sfgov tv for staffing this meeting. can you call item one, please?
2:31 pm
>> yes. resolution retroactively approving the city and county of san francisco refugee services plan for the fiscal years, 15, 16, and 16, 17. >> great, and i understand that suzy smith is here who is the deputy director for the policy and planning for the human services agency. >> thank you. >> good moerrning i am joined ba few people, the refugee coordinator and two providers gladys and nancy from the lynn institute, after a say a few brief words they will say a few words about their programming. >> the item before you is a resolution approving san francisco federal fiscal year, 15, 16, and 16, 17's refugee
2:32 pm
services plans. these are submitted annually for the funding. san francisco is one of eight counties, that receives refugee federal refugee assistance funding and administered through the california department of social services and the 15, 16, allocation was totalled 214,000, and the 16, 17, allocation totalled 168,000 dollars. and the funds are used for newly arrived refugees that have been here eight months or less to help with the employment related services and so the job search assistance and the resume building and vocational education and things like that. there is also a small portion of the funding that is used for the people who are 60 years and older, and have been here for at least five years and that is to help the older refugees become
2:33 pm
citizens. >> it is a huge number of countries and the refugees in the program are from 29 different countries, in the central outh america, africa, china, south east asia and it is diverse for a relatively small progr program. and the contract with the hantos and the lynn institute and this year we have a knew come poen tent to identify and serve unaccompanied minors as we know there is unaccompanied minors for the last several years, hard to identify them, but the school district is a great partner in helping to identify them. so this year huntos and the school district and a few other clabive organizations are working together to identify the unaccompanied youth and to serve them and so we are happy about that addition to the program. and i just wanted to say a word about why we are submitting for
2:34 pm
the 15, 16 plan, retroactively. so, this california state department of social services has to approved the plan before we can take it to our human services commission and then to the board and td state did not approve the fy, 15, 16, plan until october of 2016. and the plan was approved on november, 9, 2016 and so a few weeks later we submitted it to our board and our human services commission and then to you, and staff followed up regularly with e-mails weekly and there was a hold up at the office, and we were directed to spend the money despite the fact that it was in the review process and this has happened one other time before and we have records indicating such. i will take any questions and i will let the provider say a word or two with the program, if that is okay? >> sure.
2:35 pm
my name is garcia, and i work for hontos and our mission is to promote economic self-sufficiency for san franciscans and the families for the occupational training and employment. in the past eleven years we have served 300 refugees averaging 30 per year. 170 successfully completed, 145 of the subsidized employment, and currently, we have ten, and 145, i am sorry, we have ten refugees attending esl level, 0-1. we have three attending level two to three, and seven attending eleven three to five. on friday, june 16, in collaboration with the human services agency in sf cares. huntos will once again host the refugee awareness month. please join us as we celebrate
2:36 pm
the refugees who were forced to leave their country to escape war and persecution and natural disasters and please mark your calendar and we hope to see you there. >> thank you. >> thank you. good morning, i'm nancy ren from the lynn institute, lynn is happy to say that next week we will celebrate the 25th anniversary. and the big piece of that services have been with refugees over the years. we have a very integrated program. where we provide services alongside with english as a second language services and skilled development. the skilled development allows an extremely diverse population not just ethically, but with regard to their educational and work history backgrounds is develop the strongest skills that they are able to do so, and move forward in to employment. the types of employment that our students have obtained range
2:37 pm
from everything from entry level janitorial to right now the data analyst for the mayor's office in new york city as a lynn graduate. and so everything in between that might address positions at such computer positions such as tech, and office clerk positions, etc. so we have a very strong relationship with a number of employers in san francisco. in particular we have a contract relationship with mercy housing. excuse me. through that opportunity for the last three and a half years, they have partnered with us to bring our graduates, and many of which have been refugees into entry level employment or the front desk clerks with our facility. they are not only interested in having those positions staffed but in the opportunity for advancement for these graduates in the last seven years, four of the students have gone as high as senior property management which is a position that pays
2:38 pm
over $60,000 a year with housing and all ranges in between, and so it has been a successful partnership. although we have the strong partnerships with many, many, employers. our completing of the placement rates are strong and we have over 85 completing and placement rates. we provide placement services not just for the students who are enrolled but as well we follow up with the students through the social media and other contact to maintain support with them and help them move into stronger positions as they have the opportunity and develop greater skills and in a culture to the united states. >> okay. thank you. would you like to speak as well? okay. great. go ahead would you like to say a few words. >> i am the refugee coordinator for san francisco county and i coordinate the services with the
2:39 pm
service providers within the human services agency. and these are successful programs. >> wonderful. >> and can you give a few more specifics about the services that you are going to provide, particularly to an accompanied minors, i have to say that i am very excited to hear that you are starting that new program that i was staffing former supervisor david compos on the legislation that created a guaranteed right to legal council for all unaccompanied minors that the former administration had put into place. which i, you know, at the time thought was just unconsciousable and to know that not only do unaccompanied right have the right to legal council but also the support of job training is music to my ears and i would love to hear more about that. >> at this time, we have created collaborations with the different groups, including the behavior health, mental health
2:40 pm
providers, and also outside of the school district, we have created very strong collaborations with the different programs. they have at the school level but right now, we have created an out reach position so we are creating this collaborations so that we can bring them in for the employment services as specifically. and for children that are 16 and over, they can get the employment services through both agencies and become self-sufficient, also they want to work, and we can create the part times that they need and also, we are working with the legal services for children. and lynn institute is in the same building and so they are working together to make sure that if they have any new, unaccompanied minors that received the status and they can start to receive services as soon as possible. so there are different groups, including san francisco, coalition for refugees and immigrants that is working with us and 27 agency and we worked
2:41 pm
with the mayor's office and the different departments to make sure that they know about our services our service providers and the benefits they can receive in the human services agency, which is cash, and with the unemployment services. >> that is great, thank you. >> supervisor? do you have any questions or comments? >> no questions. this is just a fantastic program. and so. would it be appropriate to move to adopt this resolution. >> sure. >> just going to see if there is any public comment. >> thank you so much for your presentation. now the opportunity for public comment. if anyone wants to comment on this item? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. supervisor? do you want to make a motion? >> yes. i move to adopt this item. >> great. >> before we do so, could we excuse supervisor fewer from voting on this item?
2:42 pm
>> sure. would you like to make a motion ex-excusing supervisor fewer. >> sure i would like to move to excuse supervisor fewer from this item. >> so moved. >> motion passes. now, we would like to move a motion forward to adopt this item with positive recommendations >> so moved, second. >> thank you. >> and this item passes, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> clerk, could you call item number two? >> yes, ordinance replacing a provision of the planning code with the new provision of the administrative code requiring all city buildings that are accessible to the public to install and maintain at least one baby dieper changing accommodations. >> supervisor, did you want to continue this item? ible that is item three. >> yes, item number three is the
2:43 pm
one that i was going to continue. >> okay. >> thank you. very much. i see, sone from supervisor tang's office, hello. >> good morning, supervisors i'm diana with katie tang's office. this legislation was inspired by an act signed by president barack obama in 2016. it was called the bathrooms accessible in every situation. in that act the federal government agreed to require baby changing, baby diaper changing accommodations in every federal building. when we took a look at it, as great as that was, how many times, we thought how many times does that public access federal building and what are we doing on the city level to make sure that parents have access to appropriate accommodations for changing their children? we saw that of course, san francisco has led the way in 2005, the board of supervisors
2:44 pm
required new and renovated buildings to install baby stationing accommodations. but we thought that we could do more, based on what the federal government had done. so we changed three codes to accomplish three different opportunities. in the first we changed our administrative code, to require that all city buildings have public accommodations for baby changing stations. and we also that it currently offers the changing in the female bathroom that they must offer it in the bathroom for males or the all gender bathroom. >> we have heard experiences from where from my colleagues have gone into restaurants and there was accommodations in the female but not in the male bathroom. so she was forced to change her baby even though her partner was willing and able to do it. the third piece, although it was in the city code that new and
2:45 pm
renovated buildings are required to have accommodations. other they deal with the use of the building we were not seeing as much enforcement because they were not dealing with the internal aspects of it and did not have the opportunity to make sure that this code was being implemented. and so we spoke with the department of building inspection and they agreed to take this on into the building code. and have agreed to make sure that we continue to enforce this law that has been in place for the last decade or so. we were happy to see that we got the full support from the small business commission as well as the building inspection commission and the planning commission. through that process, a number of amendments have been asked, and these are all non-subnative and you also have a summary sheet in front of you.
2:46 pm
we changed on from accessible to used by, sometimes they are not accessible under the code but we want to make sure that there is still installing these accommodatio accommodations. and we also want to insure that there is clear language throughout. that they install of a diaper changing station does not in peed with any city and state and city laws regarding accessibility. >> and we heard this loud and clear and the committee and the building inspection commission to make sure that yes, we want these stations available but we don't want to impede the access to travel for anyone with a disability. also from 6 to 12 months, in case there are departments that have multiple floors and need to install multiple stations. and we change reference to both gender to all genders to make sure that there is this acknowledgment that there are different types of people identifying various types of ways.
2:47 pm
>> and we clarified the definition of what could be a baby changing accommodation, and you have those ones coming out of the walls or there could be a table and there is many ways that you can accomplish this. in the administrative code, we stated that the requirements of the ordinance will not violate or impair any existing contracts or leases and we clarified the waiver procedure and in case the bathrooms are too small and it impedes the accessibility issues and then, the departments can go to the building department as well as the administrative department to make sure that they can get that waiver. within the building code we widen the scope of the establishments to make sure that it acompasses many businesses from the daycare centers to the adoption centers to restaurants and everything in between. as long as that establishment offers a rest room to the public. and they are required to fulfill this requirement. but for instance, a laundry mat might not have a bathroom for the p you believe and so had
2:48 pm
then they would not have to fulfill that requirement. >> we added requirement that the signage be posted in compliance with section, 11 b. 16.2, which has to do with tactical signs. we amenlded the definition of renovated to say that it has to be the definition is 50,000 or more, renovations to a bathroom. and we included provisions that the ordinance does not require any reduction of the number of toilet facilities required by the law. so these were all suggested by both the department of public works, the department of building inspection and members of the public. so we tried to encompass all of those changes. >> lastly we want to make sure that we get the word out that we insure that all parents have access to the tools to properly care for their children and get rid of the mind set that only one gender is in charge of taking care of their children. we don't want to hear any more stories of people changing their child on the roofs of cars or in
2:49 pm

2:52 pm
our last hearing on this item. when the public called for a private right of action. and really so moved us here in committee. that we have been working together with our city attorney's office and thanks so much to your office, deputy, city attorney. and with the community and in a very special thanks to alika for her work and guson in my office and britney and supervisor c cohen's office. we have created a private right of action and i am going to introduce that in a second. i also want to extend my thanks to both mayor lee and supervisor cohen for working cooperatively with us on these amendments. and once again, just want to recognize the amazing work of the american islamic relations of the san francisco bay area. the aclu in northern california,
2:53 pm
and the arab resource and organizing center, and the law caucus, and for all of their hard work on coming to consensus about what this private right of action should look like. so i just want to say a couple of programs because i don't know if it is unpress dented /* /- dented but it is rare. and i want to talk about why we decided to go this route. we are basically strengthening what was already a very strong ordinance. and by taking this step, of creating a private right of action for individuals or non-profits, serving immigrant populations to hold the city accountable, if the city or snee act tore in the city violates these protections that we are creating, it is an extraordinary
2:54 pm
act, and we are doing this because of the fact that muslim community in san francisco and across the country, and the immigrant community in general in the u.s. is facing dangerous discrimination by our federal government as we speak. and with this ordinance and the amendments we are sending a strong and clear message to the trump administration that san francisco is dead serious about doing what ever it takes to protect our communities from anti-muslim and immigrant policies. and we need to also be vigilant that history does not repeat itself. this is very timely because this weekend was the 17th anniversary of the signing of the executive order 1966 by roosevelt when authorized 120,000 people of japanese an kes tri, two-thirds of whom are u.s. citizens to be i am prisoned for the sake of so-called safety of the american
2:55 pm
people at the start of world war ii. the registry of the japanese americans, stripped the americans of the right to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness and it was untugsal and unjust and it is widely recognized to be so. that the in hawaii when it order was passed hawaii said that we are not going to participate in helping the internment of the japanese community. san francisco at the time did not resist in the same way. and it is part of a history that we need to learn from and make sure we never repeat again. and by creating the strongest law possible of resisting this registry and any internment that might be connected with it, we are sending that strong message that we will never participate in that type of diskrimation, unconstitutional conduct ever again. and we must create laws that
2:56 pm
hold ourselves accountable and are the strongest possible. during the campaign president donald trump assumed a very aggressive stance towards islamic terrorism as a corner of his so-called security policy and they talked about creating a muslim registry and while this has not become policy, he has created implement other racist laws the travel ban and excluding muslims from entering this country. we need to act on the offense? . we need to create protections in place before he acts. because what he has shown is that he is going to hold true to his promises on the ka campaign. when he does he is going to act quickly with devastating consequences to our community. we are anticipating what could be a disaster and we are saying no before it even happens. and putting the protections in
2:57 pm
place to make sure that every member of our community is protected. we don't know exactly what is coming from the federal government, or what it will look like, but we are going to create the strongest possible laws to protect every member of our community and do whatever it takes to time to be at the forefront of resisting these types of policies. so i have passed out the amendments to my colleagues. i will just briefly go over the main amendments. the proposed ordinance creates a private right of action against the city for an individual whose personal information has been disclosed in violation of the ordinance or a non-profit focused on the defense of immigrant and the minority rights could bring a claim against the city. if the city is found liable in a cause of action brought by an individual or a non-profit, it shall or can be liable for damages suffered by an individual.
2:58 pm
and as well as up to $5,000 in civil penalties per violation. >> in terming the amount of civil penalty, the court should consider if the violation was intentional or negligent and if there have been any previous violations by a city department. and prevailing plaintiff in the case is also entitled to recover, reasonable attorney fees and costs. and any person or, entity must file a claim with the city within three years of the alleged violation. there is one exception, any disclosure of personal information required by a legally enforceable subpoena, warrant or court order. and shall not give right to a cause of action. under this section. >> and so, again, i, very proud today that we are creating what, you know, perhaps, the strongest law, i think in the entire country, hopefully we are leading the way, and we will see other cities and counties across
2:59 pm
the country, stepping up to send a powerful message to this administration that we will not tolerate discrimination of the muslim community against the muslim community or any immigrant members of our community. with that, is there any comments or questions? from my colleagues before we go to public comment? >> supervisor fewer. >> thank you chair, and i just want to be insured that in the definition part of this ordinance, that actually when it refers to persons and individuals, that it refers to natural and legal persons, and is that stipulate yd in the wording of this. >> can you read what page and line you are referring to? >> i am not sure, but i am actually thinking page 7 line four, this section 103 hpt 4, shall apply to all individuals regardless of citizen or immigration status, age or any other factor. i would want it to just be insured that this refers to
3:00 pm
natural and legal persons. >> deputy, city attorney? >> i am not totally sure what the question is. the ordinance applies to ethnicity, national origin or religion information about any person, any individual. i don't know if that is the response to your question? whatever their status national, origin, is that --. >> this ordinance protects them. >> >> this ordinance prohibits the city from disclosing information about any individual regarding ethnicity, religion or natural origin for the purpose of use on any government list or registry. or data base.
3:01 pm
>> thank you. >> thank you. >> any other comments or questions before we go to public comment? >> seeing none, open up the floor to public comment. would anyone like to speak? >> oh, i also should mention that we do have translation, i know that we made that sad announcement at the beginning but if you would like to speak in arabic we do have a translation for you. >> good morning, city supervisors, i know that i stood before you many times before. today i stand here to thank you for taking the time to make the amendments. these changes make the ordinance much stronger, they show that san francisco is ready to send the community and be accountable. we support the action language which will provide further protection for its residents as a muslim american we spreesht your support. thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker?
3:02 pm
>> hi, my name is adele and i am a first generation american born citizen. and i have lived in the bay area my entire life and i really appreciate the support you guys have for this ordinance. and i wanted to express my strong support of an ordinance that will endorse non-participation in targeting of muslims or any marginalized group. and i think that it is really important to recognize that protecting the safety of these individuals does not ever compromise the safety of the rest of the city's residents. and at the last city hall, there was discussion about how some individuals have been targeted in part due to their religion and so i would like to ask if there is language in the ordinance making it clear that any targeting based on rights is unacceptable. and government officials that find themselves incapable of enforcing this, need to face
3:03 pm
consequences for violating that and be taken out of positions where they are responsible for protecting those rights. >> and again, i really appreciate that you guys have been supportive of this and it means a lot to me personally, to our entire community. >> thanks. >> thank you. >> hi, next speaker. >> hi, there, my name is catergy and i am also a local history researcher. and the very first reference to south asians interacting with san francisco city government that we found so far was something that happened in 1851. when there is a man from india who was schedule to testify in court but his testimony was challenged because of his race because he was about to testify in a court case where there was a white man present and he was not supposed to be able to do that. from 1851, to 2017, our communities have faced policies of state based exclusion here in
3:04 pm
san francisco. the second story that comes out right after that happens in 1852, and this is something that came out in the daily in california and this i love this quote. it reads, in our streets, also, is the failure of the european and the darker hin du and the muslim says his daily prayers as he passes the churches of the christian. it was never before written in the world's history and this article goes on to talk about people from the lands of persia and being here in san francisco and it is 1852, and san franciscos have figured out that people from the middle east, south asia, muslims are a critical part of the fabric that makes san francisco the place that it is. and this is what our communities have always faced sometimes recognized as being part of the fabric of this place and sometimes they fail to protect us, and this is a moment in time where we g et to choose which
3:05 pm
history we want to go with. and ip want to thank you for making sure to pass this on to push on this, to make sure that this is ordinance is robust and absolutely, thank you, thank you, thank you. for making sure that the private right of action is part of this. like you said this is history that we are creating. this time we are going to get it right. >> thank you. >> next speaker please? >> good morning, my name is kristine, and i am the teacher and program manager for the mothers esl program and, again many of my students are here this morning. and we are here to thank you, and thank all of you for the time and energy that you have put into this ordinance. and it makes us extremely proud to be san franciscans. and as one of my students said the other day, she said you know, i think that i have to thank trump for one thing. and i said what is that? >> and she said, because here in san francisco, people are starting to be nicer to us. and in fact, on the way over
3:06 pm
here this morning, as we were walking there was a gentleman who said, wait, hey, no hate, no hate. i love you guys. and so, thanks again, and we do so much appreciate your energy and thoughtfulness on this ordinance and hope that it can be a blueprint for the rest of the country. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> i just wanted to say that we apply for school, we register to vote, but the city officials i just want to thank you and i am glad that you guys are making us apply for this muslim registry and keeping us safe as if we are now part of the mission, we would not want to apply for this. and we are not a threat and this is a great nation and we want to thank you guys for standing strong against this discrimination. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> hi, my name is jerry garber
3:07 pm
and i would want to say that as a jewish resident of the city of san francisco i stand with the muslim community and i really thank you for what you are doing. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> next speaker? >> hi, my name is malaka i am eleven and i am in the 6th grade. hey, creating a muslim registry is not normal. we do not deserve to be treated like as we were others. thank you for making sure our city does not cooperate with this order. >> thank you so much. >> greetings of peace. >> my mame is loudi. i would like to first thank you all for coming today and representing our rights. and allowing us to share our voices. >> i believe that everyone deserves the right to live in
3:08 pm

3:09 pm
name is skria hakeem and i have lived in san francisco for three decades. and i love my city. and i cannot imagine signing up for muslim registry. thank you for your understanding, and how prejudice that is and how hard it would be to explain to my grandchildren that they are different because of their faith. that is unlike other children. once again, i thank you very much for your support, and thank you. >> hi, my name is calkut and i live in san francisco. we thank you for talking and your hard work in this law we
3:10 pm
are proud to be san francisco. and we are really happy we are angry that muslims registry will be thank you >> thank you so much. >> i want to say thank you to the supervisor and the full board next week to pass this ordinance, thank you. >> good morning and i am here on my own behalf, i have been in the bay area for a few months, i lived for a long time in the arab country, south east michigan. i wish that i didn't have to be
3:11 pm
here, where my parents grew up despite political turbulence and dictate or ship they had free healthcare, and they went to the university for free and woman's rights were respected and music, and poetry and literature fluished and after several wards sanctions and occupations my parents's home land is no longer liveable. so we panic about the oroville dam dam and we don't have enough funds to do anything about it, but we always have enough money involved to bomb the dams on the tigress. and the citizens that are targeted by the ban deserve a safe haven here and i encourage extreme vetting of the areas
3:12 pm
where they choose to reside in the u.s. to make sure that they are not exposed to arabphobia and to be sure that they are comforted as much as possible considering the anguish that they will feel for the rest of their lives for being torn away from their home lands. >> thank you so much. >> it thank you for the hearing last time around and hearing the community and the gravity of what we are all are facing together here in san francisco and in the bay area. and for really pushing for whatever strength we could add to the ordinance, as you have heard, our various organizations in the xhnts will xhublt /* communities will come forward to move this language forward to set a precedent that when we are facing such difficult and discrimination issues from the federal level that we will come out strong and have ordinances
3:13 pm
that truly do protect our communities... so thank you for your leadership. >> thank you for all of your work on this. >> i think that two weeks ago san francisco pulled out of the task force and that was great by the supervisor and today it is a great moment that we should thank the supervisors for supporting this ordinance. san francisco should lead the way. thank you for that. >> thank you so much.
3:14 pm
i want to say thank you so much and i want to keep the city safe and i am happy that you guys are being part of that, and so that what i have to say to my students and my kids too, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> i would like to thanks you guys and i hope that we will stand here next time because we know that you are doing a great job. and i would like to thank you again because everybody knows you know, the united states is built by -- and this backed and oral agent. and thank you guys and thank you for everything. and whatever we say, we cannot appreciate that. thank you so much, the small message we would like to thank you guys, thank you so much, god bless you and god bless america. >> thank you so much. >> is there anybody else that
3:15 pm
would like to speak during public comment? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. would anybody like to make any comments or a motion to adopt the amendments? >> i would like to thank you supervisor for following up on this and actually we are really incorporating i think what we heard at the last committee meeting for these extra protections that i think that are really important and also, to thank the mayor and for the supervisor cohen also to work on this with you, and to our upper city, attorney also for their advice. and then i would like to say to the community, that you know, as a san franciscan, and i think as an american citizen, i just want to really apologize that we even have to go here and do this. i feel such a sense of embarrassment. i think and shame that actually our country is going in this
3:16 pm
correction that we find this necessary which, i think we thought that this would never happen or it would come to this. but i am glad that we are taking protections. but at the same time after the hearing last week, or two weeks ago i have to say that i was feeling such a great sense of shame and embarrassment about our country and about the direction that our country is going. and i think that i am also very foo fearful but most of all i am deeply ashamed and i just want to apologize and ask for your testimony after testimony and saying thank you, and i actually am so embarrassed even to hear people thanking us for doing something that we have, of course, an obligation to do. but it is so ridiculous that we are even at this point that we have to do it. so i just want to extend an
3:17 pm
apology quite frankly for all of the rest of us. i think that feel as though our country has lost direction and has lost purpose. and has lost really what we are founded on. and i am also a grand daughter of people who came to this country on illegal papers or documents that because a heart immigration policies have been inherently and to be here for a long time. noo he way, i just wanted to express sort of my embarrassment and shame of this country. and that we are here today actually voting on something like this. and which i should not even be necessary but in these horrible times, unfortunately lts. and so thank you for coming out today and thank you so much. and thank, supervisor sheehy who really pushed the issue of a
3:18 pm
priet vat right to action and for supervisor to follow up on it and to hear it loud and clear what the community said and the assurances that we needed to make in order for them to feel safe because it is not about us. it is really about the community. that needs extra assurance to feel safe and what is actually needed for us to take an extra step so that they feel they can live their life safely in san francisco. >> that was so moving. and i share your embarrassment and your shame for where we are as a country, it is just shocking and you know, you open the paper today and our immigrant community is now under assault.
3:19 pm
and i think that we are standing together and we are going to resist and we are going to protect our communities whether they are muslim, from other parts of the country, that are no the favored by our president, or immigrants. and because it starts with a handful of people and then it moves through society, we know this and we have seen this drill before. and i hope that the actions that we are taking today and that we will take next week will reassure our immigrant communities that we are here, and that we are doing everything that we can to make you safe. so thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to echo my colleagues and while it is embarrassing,
3:20 pm
and i think that you put it perfectly, supervisor fewer, we are going to fight in stronger, and more bold and innovative ways than we ever have before and i think that is what we are doing with this ordinance. and i just want to appreciate you all for pushing the envelope and pushing us. to think outside the box and get outside of our comfort zone. and create laws that are not just empty words, but have strong enforcement mechanisms and can and that we know will be effective if we god forbid ever have to use them. and so, i just want to thank you all so much as it has been a truly moving experience. working with you, and i agree with the student that despite this horrible man, and his administration and it is pushing
3:21 pm
us to be stronger and more kind and loving to one another. and so thank you for that. and with that could i entertain a motion to adopt the amendments? >> and without objection and those amendments passed and can i have a motion to move this item forward with recommendation? >> yes, so moved, please. >> second. >> without objection, this motion passes. >> thank you so much. >> madam clerk are there any other items? >> there is no further business. >> okay, with that, the committee is closed. thank you so much.

3:40 pm
questions about that. when did that start happening? and then commit the states mandating it who is paying for that? >> the mandate for title v programs to participate in quality rating and proven systems began to years ago. and we still are at a point where first five is largely contribute in funds to pay for assessment services. if a stopgap measure to also, there's a very small amount that the state block grants of which only 200,000 is allotted for assessments. so the cost supervisor yee, is borne primarily by the county. >> then when the governor made this a mandate was it specified that the-the funnypaper this was going to be tobacco money? >> no. it is not >> so what was he thinking?
3:41 pm
that you could just mandate and not fund it? without objection no comment as to what the governor was thinking but we would clearly want to work with the supervisor's office in advocating that the state provide more leadership and contribute to this mandate of making the system of qrs system, viable at the county level. >> i would love to-my office would love to work with your department on trying to sort of have the state mitigate this issue. because this is the czar. that the state continues to create mandates, unfunded mandates, for a system that is so poorly funded anyways and to try to cripple it even further. so i think this outrage is in our local legislators at the

state level should know about this. i will make sure they know about it. >> thank you supervisor yee. we look forward to working with the thank you for being a watchdog on the supervisor yee. the members of the public that would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> supervisor yeast would like to do? >> i will go ahead and make a recordation to accept the recommendations and to move the amended item forward with positive recommendation to the full board >> right. thank you very much as amended this motion passes unanimously. the double >> thank you mdm. clerk these call item 3 >> item number three accepting the public health to expend a grant in the approximately 137,000 from public health foundation enterprises to

to care and hiv navigation was solely funded through the mac eight foundation. >> okay. with a $3 million allocated or if it does continue, could that 3 million absorb this? >> currently that funding is targeted toward increasing prep update in the community preexposure prophylactic switches preventative for hiv. it's also focused on ensuring people who are newly diagnosed with hiv care are able to access care immediately. and there is some-then there's significant funding that's going to support increases in intensive case management as well as employment services and food services for people living with hiv. so it's not-there's no money that's directly allocated as part of that funding to this program although within the disease prevention and control branch

3:48 pm
centers of disease control and prevention. this grant is really focused on resistance and gonorrhea cdc identified as the top three antibiotic resistant rats among organisms of public health importance. in california, there has the highest number of gonorrhea cases of any state in san francisco has the highest rate per population of gonorrhea of any area within california. so for those reasons this is an important project for us to undertake. the purpose of able to really have new ways of identifying potentially resistant on a real in san francisco and also devise public health ways to respond to protect public health, to detect and promote health in this area. >> is that it? could you kind of opine on my the rates are so high year? of gonorrhea rates? wide?
3:49 pm
>> yes. in san francisco and in california, the rates are generally high. some of this is just due to--due to changes in the way people are choosing to have sex and a lot of the advances they may of heard about with getting 20 with hiv have to do with a very very effective biomedical hiv prevention including preexposure prophylactics or prep and also treatment which is great for the individual person's health but also prevents transmission of hiv. there have been some documented decreases in condom use associate with both of those strategies over time and so that then does not protect against std transmissions with some increases over time could san francisco has historically had high rates of stds and other areas as well. predating the impact of biomedical agency prevention. >> thank you. let's go to
3:50 pm
public comment. we don't have a budget legislative and also report on this so we will open it up. any members of the public to speak on this item? public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> the matter is in our hands. let's make a motion to send it to the full board >> i make a motion to pass it out of committee with positive recommendation >> all right. that motion passes unanimously. the devil next item, please >> item 5 real property lease to extend the lease for continuous seas by the sheriff the permit for approximately $882,000 in the initial year with 3% annual increases with 120 14th st. as landlord for the lease lease extension term for july 1 june 30, 2022 >> all right. on one unlike welcome from the department of real estate shall be presented on this item. welcome >> good morning mdm. chairman and supervisor yee. were your consideration and review today is a proposed resolution resolution regarding the second
3:51 pm
five year options to renew an existing lease for 1744 120 14th st. approximately 18,000 square-foot building plus, if you parking spaces used by the san francisco sheriffs department for its training units and background unit field support services unit and also can serve as the operations center or doctoring in emergency. the current extension expires june 30 of this year and this option an extension would go through 2022. the underlying lease requires the renewal and 95% of the fair market rental rate for comparable spaces within annual 3% increase during the renewal period. in appraisal independent appraisal was conducted which $50 per swear food arriving at 47.50 per square foot for 95% or, 74 -$74,667 per month. the
3:52 pm
appraisal was reviewed by the director and accepted good the city transaction agent was able to also negotiate an additional 3% concession for the rest of 2017 calendar year to exist with the sheriff's current budget. so for the rest of 2017 the monthly price goes down for a bit then it goes up to 4750 per square foot. the agent did look for other spaces for lease or purchase for the sheriffs department but nothing was available at this time that met the sheriff's current and future needs. in addition the city did approach the owner regarding selling the property but the owner was not interested and we do have a right of first refusal in the underlying lease so should the owner put it up for sale during the next five years we would have the right to refuse first. we believe this extension in the terms are in the cities and charts to the permits best interest knowing that the sheriff's department should begin its five-year planning now we ask that you approve this resolution to the full board
3:53 pm
good if you have any questions i am of the sheriff storm and the cfo are here to answer anything could >> thank you i do not have any questions but let's hear from the budget legislative analyst. >> yes mdm. chairman, supervisor yee, on page 9 of our report we note the sheriffs determine existing annual rent -this is at 120 14th st. and 16-17 is 550,003 and a $90 but that's equal to $29.18 per square foot. for 18,862 square foot under the proposed lease extension, the rent would increase to an annual rate of 4608 for the first six months and then 4750 for the second six months. the total rent will increase from 550,000 392 in 16-17 to 85.5 1617-19 an increase of 332.158 or 60.4%.
3:54 pm
however, we also note that as the department has just testified from the proposed annual rent of 47.50 per square foot represents 95% of the current fair market value established by an independent appraisal. as shown on table 2 on page 10 of our report over the five-year term of the lease extension, the total rent by the sheriffs department is 4 million and the total cost for utilities is estimated 20,001 191 resulting in a total cost of 4 million 943.727 for the proposed five-year lease extension good we do recommend you approve this resolution. >> thank you. appreciate your analysis. thank you. we will go to public comment. public comment is opened seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> supervisor yee any comments or ideas you want to share? >> i'll make a motion >> i will take it.
