services inc. for the real property on dead on arrival vice avenue for $5 million i had a few issues i know there is gone through committee and john updyke will be here to speak to some of the concerns specifically with the lack of appraisal for one of the properties in my understanding you have new information to present to the board in order to support the boards decision to purchase without an appraisal director john updyke. >> john updyke director of real estate you're correct in the hearing before the budget & finance the members expressed skefrndz about the back up support particular for the acquisition of goggling vest and since that time we secured an independent analysis of values in the area providing
6:22 am
by cv r real estate and that information has been priority to the budget analyst so perhaps they'll comment but it provides a number of compatible sales a total of 7 we're located 5 are data points on behalf of or more steven than the purchase price for the cal vest prompted 2 ploy we believe strongly adjusts within the fair market range that was based on the report but updated data confirm that i'll be happy to to go into that. >> i wonder if many rose or his members have a change to valley harvey rose not seen it
6:23 am
not evaluated that data. >> ongoing mr. updyke when did you present this to those the budget analyst. >> immediately upon receipt thursday of last week. >> supervisor peskin. >> ma'am, and colleagues and understand that acquisition of this site is quite necessary for a project that has long been in the making relative to where the sewer digestser i'm troubled by not only the issues that you and the budget analyst raised that mr. updyke respond to i'm troubled by the fact no uniform policy in our city how we go about acquiring real property other cities and other governments actually have rules
6:24 am
as to and i prevails being required for the acquisition of properties or properties above a certain level in any cities and states and disposing requirement how the appraisals are reviewed compatible sales are interesting but absent an analysis is not the kind of subject matter rear that the budget analyst is familiar or trained in 245s up to someone that is a member of the appraisal institute so i'm going to vote for this another item on the calendar that gets to policy but i think we/should have a collective policy discussion about perhaps amanda the administrative code to set those policy perimeters in place so the future we actually have an appraisal prepared that is
6:25 am
been reviewed as to the adequacy having said that, this is important and that sale data is before us whether it is analyzed by the budget analyst and all vote but let's clean up this. >> thank you, supervisor peskin. >> supervisor cowen. >> thank you very much madam president i will be voting to support 24 but supports any even consistentness i feel not like the manner in which this was really brought to us i feel lie or like it was rushed leave behind the scenes and conversations that had to happen between the department heads and myself and ultimately mr. john updyke to get to the point to recognize the portions ever importance of this property i don't want to ultimately interfere with the timeline the timeline will be very, very
6:26 am
costly for price payers, however, i'm in agreement with what supervisor peskin mentions for more a a thorough constructive conversation and evaluation of property too much money on that piece but nfl few opposite i'm going to hold my nose and vote for that. >> thank you supervisor cowen, supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor president breed i'd like to occur or concur with the comments of supervisor peskin we don't have a clear status how we had an appraisal is different standard for how we treat the properties by the city ver's th citizens want to use for instance, i have a resident that has been negotiating to pretty much land that the city will
6:27 am
never use and gotten the highest appraisal and decided after years of negotiation not purchasing the property it didn't do anyone any good to make the improvements on the land is a huge benefit for the neighborhood by in this case we're going an appraisal that is not the best deal so i think in terms of how we set standards but how we treat the residents and the benefits and advantages we give ourselves. >> thank you supervisor avalos seeing no other a names on the rufrt madam clerk call the roll. >> supervisor cowen supervisor farrell supervisor kim supervisor mar supervisor peskin. >> supervisor tang

6:54 am
bow tie but so i want to be just to be clear i still deeply love this city san francisco is an amazing city both historically and now and yet i've been making my decision, you know, in recent most to leave this city i've been doing a lot of thinking how much my heart has been being broken slowly over time particularly in the last few years by the city i love my heart breaks every time a senior on fixed income is thrown out of her home onto streets because of corporate guarantees my heart has broken has we're extremity witnessed shooting of alex and mario woods my hearts
6:55 am
breaks that private buses are given the right away over people that want to get to work on time. >> (clapping.) >> any heart breaks the homeless are washed off the streets as big tech moves into the neighborhood where they once would it's taken it's town hall on me and other in this room the hope we have, however, i want to leave you all with hope for the city and my hope the hope we have is that we can all be part of mitigating the corporate taxi over the city and insuring that more seniors are
6:56 am
not losing their homes that this is still a welcoming city to immigrants to people who are seeking refugee from violence due to the conditions in their country or violence in their home they're a young queer that came out that we can be that kind of city with all of us continuing to do the type of work i've been doing i take you have hope in leaving because i hope that i've done age a little something to affiliate the hastings aspects i've mentioned with my work i've helped fewer people from being displaced than could have been
6:57 am

$11.3 million for the intern funds for the constructions of jail just to be clear to everyone we're rejecting the planned jail my final motion. >> (clapping.) >> would be to send item 36 and 37 as amended back to committee with 38 and table 40 the acceptance of state fund and item 41 and 42 to 9 did not find public health so we'll hear them in the conclude of the yuch i don't want to cramp the discussion but people have to know where we stand a majority of this board opposed spend $300 million over and over on a design to imbritain people of color this board want to see
7:57 am
greater investment in mental health treatment for those especially those living on our streets i think we have an obligation to the taxpayers we represent not simply reject state funding by try to reflect our volumes keeping those states funds free up the capital improvement and help to provide for more mental health job train and all the things that keep people out of jail and in a real home we can create a safer and humane city colleagues he hope you'll take my comments and my comments and my amendments take into consideration this is was a really, really challenging issue i know for many of us but i know that is clear that many of the members of the board and many
7:58 am
folks in the city and county of san francisco don't want to see us waste money on a new stand alone jury trial facility it is exactly what i will not do thank you. >> (clapping.) >> ladies and gentlemen, i just want to brought to your attention a few housekeeping rules i hate to be the bear of bad news we prohibit the showings of support by applause as a alternative an opportunity to use your fingers if you hear something you like or disagreeable instead of that a thumbs down a powerful visual message we'll receive and want to remind we have a no signs in the chamber as well next person is supervisor kim followed by commissioner campos and supervisor yee and supervisor
7:59 am
farrell supervisor kim. >> thank you supervisor cowen i just the want to say i'm proud to be standing with supervisor breed that is an incredible difficult issue and i can't say i know of very many jurisdictions that talk about turning down $8 million to rebuild a job that is a courageous step we don't want the easy answer not the easy solution it is easy to sweep those that have the at least off the streets their homeless and because they're sick because they if graduate from high school or addicted to drugs jail is the easy answer this board want to say address that issue and make that a healthy hvkt and stronger system we have the only
8:00 am
county in the state of california that has built a jail since 2000 this is of concern for two reasons one nationally and in the state of california elected officials democrats and republicans and daze are stopping the massive categorization 25 years later we're learning those policies are incredible expensive and burdensome but not achieving other goals weed hope for and san francisco a vietnam veteran with post traffic was charged with arson of fire for a rome exchange he spent three hundred days in jail before the jury found him not guilty of arson he
8:01 am
got the xnl as a form of theefrp for his post traumatic stress his jail cost us four to five thousand a day and the mental health for a year would have cost on $20,000 plus and h at $56 a day a father of a 6 year-old reduced to plead guilty and jailed for 3 months 3we6789 he was and i quilted he lost custody of his daughter and car and cost 13 thousand in public funds we know that nearly three-quarters of women in state prison suffer or suffer from drugs on the local advocacy world talk about how jails with
8:02 am
a refugee because we have a progressive sheriff's department and aggressive district attorney and public defender's office, in fact, when i worked added lawyer of community for civil rights we talked about how it was finally in jail people can assess shelter and bed and 3 meals a day and health care and rehab services and access to the ged programs and more a form inmate told me he saw the prison swell people attempted to create a crime to get a temporary sentence to get regional refuge from the cold one person in 4 spent time in jail and mental health issues and so we have to ask users
8:03 am
can't there is another way to assess those serves not in jail jails are expensive to build we end up pagan for new jails for decades the city will be building proechd to build a facility for through issuing koupgsz that costs the citizens of san francisco over 3 homicide million dollars in construction alone san francisco voters have not yielded approved the construction of jails construction costs are 10 percent of total cost of a jail over a lifetime according to the association we know that we're extremity been talking about reducing jail beds but i think at the time the state granted application we didn't have in the alternatives nofrd to make a fair decision today i think there is so much we can
8:04 am
do in san francisco two factors that determine the jail population the number of people booked into jail and the length of their stay the average length between booking and release has fallen by 13 percent since. (off the record.) we're implementing many of the practices that left to right itself and states across the country are finally calling for over the last 5 years our average jail population declined by 8 percent a faster rate in the previous years in 2014 has been the lowest since 1982 corresponding to the controller's office report 2014 was the lowest and based on the impact of proposition 47 the strategy use of the methods of incarceration like electronic monitoring and the continuing
8:05 am
advances by the supervision practices the decrease in the number of beds is not a surety if san francisco a filing 50 percent of the jail beds today why do we need another jail we're leadership in san francisco that is reducing our jail population by half yet our city is incurring the is only capital opposite instead of closing we need to close the jail at 850 bryant not safe for the inmates and not for the men and women that serve in our sheriff's department to be working there as well we definitely need to close that facility and actually, i think we can do that now >> and as we continue incur what a new criminal justice system and reimagine our
8:06 am
criminal justice system there are important questions first who are we holding in our jails who percentage are heels and surviving u suffering from mlk and how many in jail they can't afford bail if we discover that thirtyers of our jail population are homeless let's build a different shelter like permanent affordable housing if we know that a percentage is impacted by mlk let's build a medical industry or center where it is possess appropriate to address what we see in the city in fact i get overwhelms we invest their taxpayers into mlk services there is an assumption they exist for the dangerous criminals this assumptions is supported by data and information about the population
8:07 am
but this is what we know we know the negative impacts of yale human beings a short stay if jail can untie the lives of those who are did not on - we know individuals that have been evicted because there were not available to make the impact - income to pay rent of later their cases are dropped parents losses custody of their children and one case leading to a death of a common cold in chesterfield when the defendant was not affording the bail and his babies not if this how to take care of him the u.s. leads the world in pretrial and an estimate half a million people
8:08 am
are in the jails on any given day can't make bail we there is still a lot more work to do we know that those calls of action are happening throughout the country i hope we are a model for how to make our communities safer i want to recognize supervisor breed for doing a tremendous amount of work and thank you to you and your staff and i have i didn't has been working on this issue over a year and the tremendous advocates percentage provides the issues i've that idle but most importantly recognize laura thrombins and others that provided a ton of policy support we really rethink what it means to build a better city here in
8:09 am
san francisco i'm proud of today. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> commissioner campos. >> thank you, madam chair i like to ask the members of the public to say a no to a new jail to stand if you're able? >> thank you, thank you. >> i ask that was i think that the fact that most people in this room are standing tells us where san francisco really is on this issue and i think that a clear message couldn't have been sent thank you very much you may sit if you like but i want to ask that because i want that i am going to stick with us as we move forward you you know time after time a number of us question whether or not a new jail is needed and staff to consider the option we held a meeting that
8:10 am
supervisor kim chaired we asked about the alternatives and no alternatives that was seriously considered so from the request from the board to consider alternative of alternatives was not headed maybe the fact that most people in the room standing against the new jail about get through to our staff they'll consider going into a different direction and to the folks that are here he wanted to know there is a lot of procedural questions and maneuver that is happening the key question what we're doing on item 40 40 specifically allows the sheriff it authorizes the sheriff's department to accept and expend $80 million for the purpose of rehabilitating and
8:11 am
building a detention facility by tabling that item today along the lines of what supervisor president london breed and supervisor kim hsa have outlined we're sending a clear message that any effort to build a new jail in san francisco will not be moving forward out that this body and whether it hemispheres today or down in a month or year i don't see it board of supervisors in any way approving anything that allows with the expenditure of money to build would a new jail in the sfoivenlths is it is not what san francisco wants that simple with that, i also want to leave us with this it is not enough that we do this
8:12 am
today we need to not only rededicate ourselves thirty to this effort what roma and other have been fooiktd forgive coming up with alternatives but focus on sacramento parts of the problem is the misguided misappropriated priorities of santa monica the only thing that sacramento gives jurisdiction for san francisco is for jails and by saying no, thank you governor jerry brown only thank you but, yes we need money for other things we need money for housing, we need money for education, we need money inform 40 for so many
8:13 am
things our families in san francisco are struggling to stay here and so not enough to shoot this down we need a to recommit ourselves to going to sacramento so the money is given to city's like san francisco so address the niece of people of this city i hope that happens we know by voting to table not only am i voting to say no to a new jail but, yes to invest in the future of of our families thank you. >> (clapping.) >> thank you commissioner campos next will be supervisor yee. >> thank you very much this has been a difficult discussion and i think was last week, we had the hearing that was shedding a lot of light and on any thinking and it's been difficult discussion because it
8:14 am
is like how do we turn a negative discussion into a positive how do we sit down and figure out what we really can do for people that are in situations where they might be incarcerated i think i want to say i appreciate supervisor breed and supervisor kim and everyone that is working on this to look at it how to have a positive discussion and the amendments that you've asks for and to start that dialogue with the working group is really the way to look at this as a positive discussion i think we should have this i'm glad you brought this up and to get us in that direction and by having this working group and investigating some time to have
8:15 am
a discussion people get together but provides an opportunity for our system to try out they're new itself program to use the national assessment to actually reduce the number of people that are incarcerated into put them into alternative programs yeah you know $80 million really is we should be keep the $80 million and put it if preschool i mean it if you want to talk about prevention we know that works and don't know why the state didn't support that i want to support the amendments that are going to be made and so forth i have one question and which i hope someone can answer he want 80 us to go ahead and
8:16 am
try to purchase that property but why are we using certificate of participation but it will cost us several millions in terms of interest or whatever it is why can't say we find $15 million in the budget and pay for it we don't losses million dollars this is a question i want to know i want to pose it. >> supervisors ben controllers certainly large items we do like many governments that finance but cash could be used for is that cash will come from the general fund likely but an option indians this is going back to the committee and part of ad hoc committee.
8:17 am
>> i want to stressed if we could find funding in the qyq this means we will have several million dollars that could go into services. >> is that it supervisor yee. >> next supervisor farrell. >> thank you, madam chair i want to extend supervisor president breed it is a tough issue and the person choice is relevant and jermaine and coming from the right place i'm in full support and the other week if committee he simply want to say i hope we march down this road in a consecutive manner you know if we close the current hall of justice we know and we're extremity talked about in deplorable position for the
8:18 am
prisoners and the deputy sheriffs we'll be in an overcrowding situation and as much of a supporter and hope the built as the board at the state level to plug more into those efforts and certainly commend the efforaround mental health b more than anything thank you to supervisor breed for her efforts here. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you. i want to first acknowledge deputy chief friedman in the back deputy chief and other for really show me the treble conditions within the hall of justice and bryan strong important i think trying to do his best with the difficult situation i'm sorry to be on the side of the thirty
8:19 am
nonprofit and social justice organizations and did many members in the audience that are have been a growing coalition against the building of the new jail i want to say and commissioner campos asked people to stand this is not the first time we're extremity seen the multi racial justice you've been here for budget committee mergers that supervisor katie tang and supervisor farrell eye and i and the gao and your strengths is growing he want to say as black lives matter and critical resistance it is a racial justice issue and c.j. has hieltdz the number the burns institute to that 49 percent of jail is filled with african-americans and a huge percentage of latinos and chicanos and other of color as well 7.3 times the arresting
8:20 am
rates for african-americans then the general population and growing the industrial complex as the folks have said needs to be stopped would be principles and building up racial multiply so it is not about the board of supervisors but the movements out there that are challenging the growing collection i wanted to say i'm here in solidarity with this coalition and young people for the young impedes e women's investments have been out more and more and give proposes to the young people not investing in the jails i also wanted to acknowledge that san francisco as other have said california do much better in investing in alternatives and people and mental illness extort
8:21 am
systems and up to 40 percent of our in custody as the healthy rofrtd in the budget conceptually committee are people that suffer from mental illness they need treat i'm glad our department of mlk is looking that road but supervisor president breed and supervisor jane kim one way or another we're extremity shift not building new jails i wanted to say we don't need to continue to criminal ccii criminal lists the powerful over ero often the coalition of homeless that stood up we need to continue to decrime scene the efforts and not mental illness but giving people real opts without a doubt a just jails a more beds in the system we have now, one thousand
8:22 am
plus inmates that is three hundred and 50 in the hall of justice and marks the 33 year low for our system down from the 2 thousand three hundred inmates in the mid 90s i think that was about 10 years ago that new jail emerged that population was at that level but because the coalition and other gradual and rapid decreases in the population i believe with bail reform as the gao and the mental health services we're moving forward towards the community-based alternatives so i stands with the coalition and am proud of board for taking this bold and strong action along with the coalition. >> thank you supervisor mar and supervisor peskin.
8:23 am
>> schoolz. >> thank you supervisor avalos all. >> thank you it is actually important to go out commissioner mark farrell it supervisor eric mar if it was 15 years ago we got andrew's protesting prop 21 that kartsz more people giving the da daze as charging people as adults we took over the oakland planning commission i met a lot of people during that time the i critical resistance was around and starting and i feel like it is i'm excited to see how much the organize has done on for years and the voice of people have come to this board through several meetings
8:24 am
we're extremity had and openly and rooektd $80 million from the state government to build a new jail and not a lot of victories they have not been i roll call in alameda county in 2000 and 2001 that went forward it is hard to finds overseeing victories and say now no to the complex and i think here we work at city hall and accept things we kind of sleepwalk in you're jobs and resolve those problems capable city workers to make sure our facilities as a gay good as they can be but start to build a new jail and make it smaller the current jails three and four and doing our part to prevent the incarceration of
8:25 am
people because we have few jail beds but stacking the step to continue the prison and industrial complex the way our facilities lock up and keep people down especially brown and black they're clearly other ways to go i actually find themselves of myself thinking main that's the way things are you read angela davidson and with that in my ahead this is a way to go that was a couple years ago and it took people and roma meet me and san francisco state university and turned my head around what are you thinking what have you been part of vance and going to be a facility that is part of keeping people downturn their lives negatively
8:26 am
forever we have this before us and i'm excited a second time to be voting against this effort to build a new jail in san francisco i want to thank my colleagues for their strong and bryan strong that works on the capital improvement plan committee and the controller's office and even in the sheriff's department that is important we fellow what supervisor president london breed has talked about in terms of looking at alternatives to building a new jail and what we put if place has nothing to do with with the people behind bars but people with a substance we need to make our lives better and making sure we have love treatment and places to live we can have access to mlk services and keeping our community whole and families those are the things that make a difference
8:27 am
and as supervisor yee talked about childcare makes the biggest difference so in terms of investments for young people below the age of 5 will be with them the rest of their lives that's the greatest investment for love we all know is what is mavericking human beings complete i'm happy to vote against this this is a small step that is taking this out of the valuation of being part of what is sleepwalk way of vetting the industrial complex much more to do i'm looking forward to being part that have. >> thank you, supervisor peskin. >> thank you acting president i'm so proud to be on this board today it is as a on and on son of two mental health
8:28 am
professionals that is exactly what i was raised on i want to thank everyone in the community rothman ma and other thomas for making this vote with the leadership of supervisor president london breed and supervisor kim subpoena an easy vote to take as i've reemerged myself in the week i've been here for bad players i ever remarkably combrosz combrelsz on the ones the liable sheriff mike advocating our outgoing sheriff a thinking has evolved our in coming sheriff kevin about the inmate population the tour i received yesterday, i think they want to have the facilities where they have the ability to
8:29 am
have mental health services that topnotch and really in large part going to be in sheriff's bailey to work with this board and the advocates in other words, to achieve what we must achieve the closer of c.j. four i look forward and expend to the sheriff's department very sincerely the desire to work to achieve that and make that dream come true with the complexes of clagz and complexes of san bruno and c.j. one and two and work with the states to hang on the $80 million where san francisco is the progressive leaders in criminal justice system under the leadership of sheriff hennessy and will be as we move forward. >> thank you, supervisor wiener. >> thank you make madam chair
8:30 am
thank you supervisor president london breed we're extremity had a number of confections over the most about this proposal and also about the drastic needs for more mental health services in san francisco more beds and ability to take people that are in crisis and destable and get them healthy i think we all agree that massive incarceration is a huge problem in the country one of the greatest challenges as self-i think inflicted wound in san francisco and in addition to the telephone to 13 hundred daily number of people in our jail system on a given day balanced by 50 percent in the last decades we're extremity bucked the national trends and significantly reducing our jail population and in fact, we have
8:31 am
almost as many people now on some type of diversion in our county jail system so i do think this is important we talk about massive incarceration on a national level to really acknowledge san francisco we have not yielded just rallied against massive incarceration but walked the walked under reducing the number of people in our jail facilities and moving more and more people into alternative of jail incarceration that's a positive thing i'm happy to support what we are doing today, i think to say stent we get people in a safeway into different alternatives be is miscellaneous or substance abuse program they're not carted it is good for the taxpayer and good for the communities
8:32 am
i want to note that we need to get this right this can't be just talk about how important to have more mlk facilities or alternatives we have a crime problem here in san francisco i know that our violent crime levels in san francisco have gone down but in a number of areas at the scene of the crime is significant up in the city not a blip you sitting down up in our neighborhoods everyday and it is a very real thing we need to make sure if we're don't go to be sixth reducing our number of jail beds as will happen when this jail is torn down and not replaced we have those real alternatives if we don't have those real alternatives we're going to have a real problem on our hands i've seen strategies including in the
8:33 am
examiner how we have our jails at 50 percent empty or one thousand empty jail beds i've landmarked the numbers and talked to a lot of people that is not true we'll be when this jail is torn down our jail population will be one or one and 50 above our capacity and we're going to have to work through that so as we're doing it all i'm saying doing it is eyes wide open and not opinionated our jails are half by but have to make hard choices and not pretend we don't have to make those alternatives a reality the miscellaneous system in this state as your honor, raffled we in san francisco and other local jurisdictions pay
8:34 am
the price for that everyday and we as local jurisdictions local communities have to react to that and we have to do do that we're not getting the help if 9 sulfate and federal government we'll looking forward to getting that done. >> thank you, supervisor wiener it supervisor tang. >> i think a lot has been said i agree with on this topic i do want to thank supervisor president london breed for the decision or the kind of x-chromesomes that have proposed so i know that sheriff is leaving his position but want to thank him one of the first things we do was take me on the tour of all the jails so i feel like this conversation had a better understanding how some of the inmates are going through and the issues we have a quorum i do want to second the motion you've made i don't know if you
8:35 am
want to have me restate so just to be clear. >> go ahead. >> amending items 36 and 37 and accept and expend that back to the finance committee and supervisor yee in budget committee we'll work with the controller's office and mayor's office and foulth the best source of funding i believe you said to also send back item 38 the reference to the jail and tabling item 39 and 40. >> and also sending items 41 and 42 the mental health pies back to committee. >> supervisor tang. >> and supervisor cowen. >> thank you. i just want to take a moment to recognize an can i believe educator in our community roma a woman.

8:45 am
the working parents coupled with the fact we have recreations within the next 15 years san francisco population will grow by another one and sfgov highway meaning more children by the need to do something to start looking ahead and being creative how we'll increase violate for childcare for over families that expands the impact fees to include the residential and the developments citywide and increase the fees to those determined in the 2014 citywide nexus study those additional fees could result in wurpdz of $5 million for the chiropractor funds for the next 5 to seven years this sounds like a drop in the bucket but doubling what we're getting when you look at

supervisor kim supervisor mar and supervisor wiener thank you for your co-sponsorship and also thing jeremy my legislative aide to for working on this a big cyclist cyclist in the city that is very, very person i'm a lifelong cyclist since the age of 10 learned at 7 year-old and got any real bike at 10 years old i'm mostly beacon to commute i'm multiply mobile not on the bike as much the one thing that biking gave me a sense of this city a have a tap graph map of san francisco i know where all the hills and how to avoid them and whoonz i want to tackle and know what the practice of crystal i've been krooif under the xhoifr from city hall for 10
8:53 am
years it is a 5 million commute i circled circled circled i used a guitar to protect myself if cars recycling can be a dangerous opportunity but it makes it a low low save and part of raurns or awareness to make sure we're looking at out for people and cars and pedestrians and other vehicles that use you're streets and it is something that legislation is really about and i'm one of one person there are thousands of people that have the experience ever what the o.j. what it is like in the city how to protect themselves and other people and make sure their looking at for pedestrians and a roof cyclists is don't circle and put people's lives at
8:54 am
fear they're not the main body of cyclists but the minority and we don't have like a pr add that promotes cycling in the is i e country that leads to a lot of miss exemptions about cycling in to we see everywhere in san francisco we're extremity seen the rapid increase of people riding bikes and led to a conflict of bicyclists and drivers new consensus the commuters that are riding doubled between 2006 we can minimize if we yield you're streets work best when we treat
8:55 am
other like we want to be treated like cyclists and autopsies automobile we're wondering what cyclists and automobiles will be doing the california vehicle code requires the bikes to follow the rules as cars but bikes are different it generates one hundred was the of power like hours power cars a uc berkley physics professor found a cyclist is rolls through a stop use 25 percentlessly energy than the cyclists excuse me. that fully stops we've leaders that traffic flows better when we give bicyclists considerations like bike lanes and as parts of vision zero the san francisco police department focus on the 5 the dangerous
8:56 am
most dangerous traffic violations there is running red lights and stop signs violating pedestrian right-of-way, exempting turning violations and speeding, however, district enforcement is current productive for several reasons it takes away scarce enforcements and counter inner tuff to how people navigate the intersections and discourages people from bicycling common sense enforcement of law makes you are streets more predictable i've heard a lot about this ordinance people building that it gives special accommodations to bike riders this is not true it is about setting the priorities for the san francisco police department that reflect our policies and conforming those policies with the
8:57 am
practices of kind of like in san francisco the san francisco police department claims the enforcement of bicyclist violations is a low priority but we're extremity seen data that contradicts they dictated office hours i repeat one hundred and 14 officer hours on 5 and 6th street for ticketing people on the wilting that is for most dangerous intersections they're not on the wiggle there are no records of enforcements at market street and octavia the city's most dangerous system that is based on the injuries as reported boy this department of public health this two day crack counsel 2 had had and 4
8:58 am
citations with the vast majority going to bicyclists the san francisco police department cites bicyclists through stop signs on october 1, '12 san francisco police department cruiser we are seen stacking occult the intrfshgs waller and steiner and ticketing bicyclists between manipulated that was recorded to me directly and reports of talk the walk bicyclists on the wiggle the chronicle recorded a young woman for rolling to a stop sign at less than 5 miles per hour she said the stop took 15 minutes for the ticketing to be made you having could focus on much more dangerous activities on a street the ticketing for biking is 2 this defendant dollars within is
8:59 am
making the project rent to get more clarity i'm submitting a letter of inquiry to the police department for the number of citation for bicycle riders to phil to yield this didn't condone the biologists who don't slow down to 6 miles per hour arrest 6 feet to pedestrians this ordinance will not discourage the police department from talk the walk unsafe behavior we can't allow the sfpd to prioritize ticking of behaviors by bicyclists instead of focusing on the city's dangerous intersection jeering first of all, it requires cyclists so year-old and that
9:00 am
yielding can mean stopping and making sure the pedestrians have the right-of-way it also says if bikes are not to a complete stop but negotiating the inspectors at 6 mile-per-hour and i think outside the box as i said it also specified the distance the exists must have between themselves and pedestrians at any rate of feet this ordinance also has a language that encourages can't require the mta but can you remember the mta to have an education campaign educating the cyclists and how the education works this thing past year $400,500,000 for the vision zero program and we also have money that is available from the transportation authority to pay for added education efforts around cyclist in the city in many legislation
9:01 am
will urge the mta to carry out this education colleagues this is common sense legislation and for a city that is working to get people out of their cars and to use less of a cartoonish i am brilliant that incentives our climate goals and bicyclists help to meet our overhead needs i encourage our support. >> thank you supervisor avalos supervisor cowen. >> over a year ago we as a city commit to the vision zero policy which is a policy that is committed that commits our city to 2020 and facilities by the year of 2024 a good policy i
9:02 am
stand behind and a dozens of high injury kortsdz we distinct to see and make improvements to as part of vision zero commitment approximately 7 thousand intersection in san francisco and i think we have a collective responsibility to make sure they're safe to the best of of our built to everyone that enters into the intersections whether residents or not are safe, i think we need to been holistically about cyclists and pedestrians and people that are disabled whether their sight impaired or in a wheelchair they'll be using overseeing corridors an if this ordinance passes it will porsche put in nourment we're extremity heard testimony from the
9:03 am
disability advocates advocating their concerns around that policy i'd like to the also take a moment to recognize that just yesterday a bicyclists was tragically killed on the southeast part of the city in the neighborhood we don't know all the details an investigation is under a way those are the kinds of incidents and situations that i'm really concerned about i have a real concern that ordinance will confuse the issue and future create a miss understanding between drivers and pedestrians and have a few concerns when it comes down to improvement particularly with the novrn english speaking community not only enforcement if in the monthly lingual community but enforcement i've yet to see that
9:04 am
happen to the question i received from passionate go san franciscans phone calls and overwhelms on both sides of the issues raised real concerns that are boycott e legitimate i'm e i'm not trying to demolish those from the cycling community but 90 but the passage of that will come to a harvard challenge for those seniors and not able to support this legislation as it is today thank you. >> thank you. i see a long list on the roster at&t park we talkative today supervisor farrell. >> thank you, supervisor breed first thank you to supervisor avalos and supervisor breed and supervisor wiener that put that worked on this measure as well as the other co-sponsors i understand this policy was long
9:05 am
in the making and a direct response to some of the acts link the wiggle and take the opportunity to supervisor president london breed i understand where she is coming from having said that, die building that changing the rules of road a appropriate response for me first of all, you're students her in san francisco are more commend until we have serious suggestions about a subway city that supervisor wiener started to talk about it is on this boo going to get worse and worse and people move to san francisco we doing doing everything we can to promote our transit first policies but recognize the status of roads and any up to this point in time as someone that group i grew up riding muni pea my bike by
9:06 am
myself through the streets of san francisco before i was a teenager and when i turned 16 and started to throw a car into the mix still drive a car and ride a bike with my kids and walk as much as possible our roads are the crazy itself due to more people or construction it is what is haven everyday in san francisco i see drivers driving for aggressive than ever before and bicyclists blowing through stop signs and rltsz every single day to work and pedestrians walk with their heads down with their iphones from my perspectives everything here everybody that every mode of transportation is added fault in many ways and everyone in san francisco needs to take ownership we need to take accountant for all
9:07 am
residents we rightfully contempt a ton of resources to vision zero i support and a number of unfortunate accident on the other hand, these in district 2 i don't see how this legislation furthers that goal people talked about this legislation in the context off pedestrians versus bicyclists frankly pitting that against each other drives me this is from my prospective everyone needs to be more vigilantes on the streets that means everyone bicyclists and pedestrians and car drivers and changing the rules of roads in san francisco to allow one mode of transportation to have a legally different set of rules on the roads doesn't make sense and a lot has been made about this works else were
9:08 am
i understand major cities no europe we talk about idaho and to states the obvious we're a different setting idaho, i do as i looked it up earlier today has about 20 people per skwierp we have over 17 thousand people per square mile it is simply different we need to acknowledge the reality and lastly there is comments about well, that is a small resolution you know it can't say be implemented that is against state law it didn't really does much except contradict san francisco police department is don't say more than that it sends a preliminary hearing to everyone in san francisco that one mode of transportation in the city has a
9:09 am
different set of rules than anyone else i'm a huge property of more bike lanes we did it on my street with my kids and my wife and i will and in district 2 and making that more attractive for bicyclists to be in san francisco we need to increase liability and attractiveness for transit first but changing the rules of the road for not only bicyclists but other people that use the road to me is the wrong medications i appreciate the intent of the resolution i understand where supervisor president london breed is coming from i do believe a ton of public safety issues that dictates sfpd is looking at crime with that said, i doolittle doable this make sense i'll not are supporting
9:10 am
that. >> thank you supervisor farrell supervisor yee. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i want to say i think the understand the intent that supervisor avalos is trying to bring to the table and after all he was like supervisor jane kim and myself co-authorize of dissolutions which rules do we follow i'm thinking whether i'm a pedestrian or something that is biking or a driver what we don't want to do is create more situations where we're second-guessing where a biker ever or are anyone else will be doing some anticipation, of course, careful makes sure regardless if you're walking or biking are driving a vehicle but
9:11 am
there's sometimes assume if there is a stop sign they're going to stop and if we're really don't know what someone about do is scarey i'd to be on the save side we have rules let's follow it you know what i mean, i'll be doing it will be safer so i'll not be supporting the legislation today. >> thank you schoe supervisor wiener. >> okay. i'm going to support supervisor avalos a few option comments in a row i support that this legislation and happy to sign on early as a co-author i think a lot of expressions of both support and option but in terms of the opposition i received almost every single
9:12 am
communication i've received in opposition e-mails or otherwise talks about cyclists that run red lights or blow through stop signs or violate a right-of-way and almost hit a pedestrian i almost we're 11 for 11 wanting the cyclists to get ticketed their reckless behavior but not what this legislation is about this legislation i won't repeat with supervisor avalos said doesn't in any way exonerate people that are engaging in reckless behavior people traiflg of miller or less critically slow speeds and people that accusationly enter an intersection only if no one else is interest not violating anyone else's right-of-way we're not
9:13 am
talking about someone that blows through stop signs this didn't apply to someone who is doing that not talking about running a red light this legislation didn't apply we're not talking about a krieflts speeding or riding on sidewalks i know we have a boarder discussion around the way that people act on the road cyclists and muni drivers and ridership drivers a intentional discussion how we should be sgrak with people in the city this is legislation is about a specific type of cycling not creating danger for anyone and this legislation is about making sure that people can actually bike in the city i agree completely with supervisor farrell we're getting be a more and more cross-out
9:14 am
city we see is it on the streets every single day with the congestion of every mode of transportation and only going to get more congested as you're population is growing by other one and 50 thousand people by the quarters of a century but do the best we can to make that as easy as possible for people to assess forms of transportation other than driving their own car investing in the transportation system and vice chair a great car sharing and making that as easy as possible for people to ride bikes having a bike system that reflects the reality how people ride bikes the fact is a stop sign at every intersection on streets little or no traffic
9:15 am
little risk of anything happening with the bikes entering the intersection slowly and cautiously some people will not stop at every single intersection port commission in every city i've ever seen and fancy for us to think they're going to do so so cyclists continue to get tickets someone in any districts sent me a citation under 57 mile-per-hour but got a ticket i don't think that is how we should be using our law enforcement resources people that are are being hit and dying on the streets we have far better used for our a scarce law enforcement so i'll be supporting this legislation. >> thank you, supervisor wiener. >> supervisor tang. >> thank you very much i know that there been comments and concerns about safety in
9:16 am
relation i'll not repeat those one of the top concerns is again how we are telling me the police department that something should be the lowest enforcement priority for them that's where i fundamental have the issue what will stop us in the future police department we'll tell you what you're priorities that should be worked or worked out with community members, in fact, when i go to the police captain their priorities change they want the police to focus on something and next month something else i hear about cyclists not riding safely and it's okay. as along their caution i i don't like the
9:17 am
police enforcement that one, the fundamental concerns the other thing is that as we know that state law governs the rules of road i appreciate we're trying to adopt a san francisco right-of-way policy that is a policy so i wanted to make sure that whether you're a residents or a visitor coming from out of state i understand what 9 rules of road are owe not something that san franciscans know about the yielding and be a personal level i don't have a problem that accident yielding again, if you're. >> broadcast bicyclists and experiencing caution and not coming to a complete stop i don't believe that that police should be spending their time endorsing those kinds of situations but that legislation came being because of some i think ousted arraigns behavior from one police captain and not
9:18 am
adapt this because of one type of behalf we work better with the practical captain to make sure we addresses our values and the safety priorities what we could do a better job and should do more work in terms of enforcements on distracked driving and distransacted bike and those all those things making sure we are paying attention so i want to dots best to support the biking communities they've done amazing things to take the cars oath the road and like supervisor farrell i grew up bike before it was cool in san francisco so and he also when i was in college had on this a bike and if you're talking about e grerg behavior the police were hiding behind bushes on campus ticketing
9:19 am
students we need to be careful no matter what we are doing i'd like us to focus on some other things to make the roads safer for everyone no matter of mode of tracking transportation but not address the police activities. >> supervisor mar. >> let me be succinct so many has been building inside on this issue for me i'll say i'm appreciative that supervisor avalos has brought that forward and i think best of my knowledge lash or the scope getting of bicyclists for the problems cause a culture speeding and cars is really the issue before us i think when there is an anti bicycle bias between the police department cult not just one or two police officers that is much broader than that if the safety
9:20 am
committee to others issues we're extremity dolt day and night with that is ridiculous to say that the counter to vision zero vision zero and the focus on 5 to identify in a dedicated approach the danger is and again, the high injury corridors with the cars bicyclists unsafe bicycling is an issue about the cultural of cars and killing of people on discredits is night and day a lot of dialogue but want to binge that back supervisor avalos action a 10-year-old he was riding i had a green stingray two speedy learned how to ride safely and good efforts that he the bicycle coalition and other lead so we're trying to reach 20 percent by 2020 of bicyclists i think that kind of push back really important type of policy is
9:21 am
counter to our policy as supervisor avalos mentioned to a healthier city reducing the carbon footprint and want to say i think the bias of the ticketing of bicyclists on the widen and other places is something that helps to address by sclaifr what the policies are when we all rode on the bike to work day many of us probable be cautiously slowed and blow through some stop signs i'll be speed up we know that happens often i'll say whether it is idaho, colorado or other city's it is the right thing to do for san francisco and we should be pufsh back on the ticketing of $200 for bicyclists that are not endaring anyone our times of the boards politics my colleagues
9:22 am
join supervisor avalos and the other co-sponsors and anti bicyclists bias within the police department and the cultural and to stop scapegoating bicyclists for riding safely and trying to make the city a better place as well that's my $0.02. >> thank you supervisor mar. >> supervisor kim. >> i want to recognize supervisor avalos and his office and leadership for bringing this policy before us this is something we're extremity talked about for quite a number ever years in our confusion how we can make that a safer city for all the mode shares but how we can reduce the congestion on the streets if you, we want to get anymore individuals out of their cars out of the crowded muni and the congested streets into they're bikes this was on the ordinances that will help to insure that if you're a muni bus
9:23 am
and the streets is two cross-out it is for you about save behavior we don't tolerant batting bad behave this ordinances are help to move the bicyclists through the intersection and across the street bikers know they don't want to tackle with cars their lose the fight with the vehicle that is thousands of pounds so cyclists is simply not going to engage in danger behavior they can't say endanger the pedestrians when we talk about a better transportation city, of course, we need to talk about anymore muni service and increase the muni services we need to talk about shivering that bicyclists feel safe and create a sets of
9:24 am
laws that are going to encourage people to bike and do so safely hesitate what this ordinance is and many of the points are made why we should support i'm happy to be a co-sponsors with supervisor avalos as a beginning cyclists on the streets i see how this encourages me to bike more if there are not cars and not pedestrians on the street a slow role through can help to insure that i can safely there are no goat get through the city this is a good policy moving forward i think this can work in san francisco as well. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> supervisor avalos i don't want to repeat but jeer this legislation is not so much but changing rules i don't think that is about changing rules but
9:25 am
really about how we can have make people that yield at stop signs the lowest priority for law enforcement it is really about making sure we're putting our resources where they really need to go cyclists who are approaching stop signs at slow speeds looking at for pedestrians are not causing harm and to stand the appreciate resources and such behavior an intersections that are actually not critical intersections to the vision zero efforts is making enforcement recycle we're doing the enforcement but police department to have discretion and when we legislate one of the lowest detroit's priorities we give the police department
9:26 am
discretion we need that kind of enforcement if we look at market octavia intersection national getting any kind of enforcement and we believe because of bias against cyclists then we're not doing we we need to do with the vision zero program far people that run stop signs and violate the pedestrian right-of-way and competing complete turning violations and speeding but actually allowing the cyclists do come to a yield at stop signs we're not endorsing stop signs but enforcing studying speeding a cyclist is blogging through the intersection the police can go after them they've violated speeding and avoid and stop sign by blogging introduce it in a dangers way to just to be clear we want our police department to
9:27 am
do effective enforcement not to waste their times think 15 minute $200 fixture or intelligent for people not causing danger on our streets colleagues, i have a number ever small amendments i don't believe i have two of i passed out a sheet of paper the first i'll read into the record is on page 3 lines three and four it is vision zero language clean up the 70 sfldz or san francisco police department is focused on the behaviors most likely to result in someone seriously injured some seriously injured the next one on page 5 line 3 adding the words always that bicyclists yield in accordance

change to the neat brerg metering is how residents that have solar or facilities that generate electrical can use their electrical but sell the access into the grid and pg&e is changing the rules that will make that more difficult and cost more for facility and people that own the electrical generation like solar to be able to make it cost fiscal and sorrowfully impact our cleanpowersf program the other prop that pg&e has filled the power adjustment rate it is a rate they'll charge the expertise that or existing pg&e's electrical generation system and goobtsdz to the cleanpowersf this is not effect only cleanpowersf but other communities choice like marin

9:45 am
sales and lethal types of ammunition and prohibit minors from entering fire rages without a parents but the progressive stance we still is limits on what we do to regulate the ammunition and gun sales to imperative to have state and other legislation to have strict regulations this promoted inch will be among this among other things require the point of sale background schekz and remove the ability for a third party possession and anti allowing law the magazines stating and out of state purchase of ammunition only delivered to licensed purposes
9:46 am
san francisco and california and as well as the country a severe public safety issues when it comes to gun today in the city 49 homicides that involve guns we need to support this one that builds upon the strong stance we had here in san francisco so the rest the state may follow the second item the result of an issue that has u religion as the president rear deck our final dimension is outdated and didn't accurately fit several of our current members particularly this old definition explicit include or be able members of the judge retirement to include the years of compensation under the current system this is simple and clean
9:47 am
