merchant association to support stronger form of the retail controls on polk street. sometimes it takes a series of dramatic events to bring the community together to ask for change. in our case, the last year and a half we've been about a with big-box retailers like target and whole foods were trying to swap away one of only half a dozen subsites and district 3 to build much-needed housing in the greatest housing crisis in modern memory. the lombardi site will build really 62 units of housing evictions are at all-time high in our neighborhood. alice, people want to move to our neighborhood. that's a good thing. we have to build housing first. we also want to protect our local businesses could we need to stand firm and say that district 3 the historic district, the polk street is a
storage area and needs to be protected. when big-box chains try to stop reasonable common sense housing development that all you can support, the community needs to take a stand. we have done that and were appreciative of supervisor peskin inducing legislation to protect local independent business. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> hello. i've only gone through the process of contacting the occ and san francisco police commission and the supervisor of the bayview district could however, the e-mail didn't go through a couple times i tempted to put it through. i contacted three of the different assistance to that supervisor and insisted i put him into an e-mail. however i prefer to speak to people face-to-face. it's part of my
college. so i feel like the internet is leaving people behind. basically, where the incidence was i was mugged by the police freight traffic incident. i pulled over and was willing to take a ticket. however they put their hands on me baby sweet violated me. it's been over a year and still waiting for a response. my final resort is to come here. i came your couple other times now and the second time was people of ethnic city within the bayview neighborhood attempted to mug me and so i called the police took them 20 min. or so. i was thankful they can. however, they didn't seem they seem disinterested in what they gave me some kind of a claim tidbit they didn't write any number and asked if i want to press charges. i said i don't know what that means. so, i got an appointment with capt. solomon of the bayview department and he said he would get back to me and never did.
since then he was promoted to command. i was able to track him down there did not directly . i left a met melts. he did not get back to me so time goes by. i tried not being irate person and tried to be within the system but time goes by and you get lost in this and i like to be a bk person not a homosexual. i'm from here. but i don't know. the older i get the less i tend to believe >> next speaker, please. >> tom mcgillis but i'm scared it was a 10-1 vote.. community involvement was being questioned . supervisor lee was, questioning it. i was behind
him. as never ever an excuse to reduce community involvement. community involvement always says i'm the it puppet that vote was changed to 11-0 good i hope there's no change to community involvement. three involvement as always highly a ball because they react to a plan that developers have designed, have lawyers, have profits estimates and they want to get going on it. last week mr. marriott was maybe that'll be the moment when this community starts coming together as a whole. super bowl $v million should never been to the nfl should pay their host cities five in the dollars to host the event. san francisco, in this time in my lifetime has been given a number of different gifts. two of which are happening right this week.
the chinese involvement in our society is a portal. san francisco is a portal for which we become grateful for the diversity it also valentine's day. beef and has a nice little tradition. keep a little candle in your hearts. maybe let it grow. remember to smile. yet our society now is what we are going through, here's a book. can we see it on the screen? the sixth extinction. we need a change of values. new directions. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good evening supervisors. as of 6 pm. i'm peter warfield executive director of library users association. my subject
today is san francisco public libraries knew the proposed set of fees and in particular when they're not discussing publicly. that is san francisco public libraries city (luis-herrera has proposed a revision to the library fees and includes a brand-new fee for lost or damaged to a laptop computer. the amount is $1000. for those who may not be paying attention, $1000. the newly proposed fees also include $500 for a lost or damaged tablet and finally, vicki dollars for lost or damaged to unspecified peripherals and accessories. we wonder whether that means such things as a five dollar word
10 dollar thumb dr.? a users association has a considerable excess at the last lottery commission last thursday. that is, we told a library commission that evidently did not know the amount of that new fee, those new fees, but we told him what that was. so, for the first time in living memory, there was a motion and those second. so, that set a fees for the moment has not passed. for the moment, but not be on its way to you but we expected to be coming. we ask you to pay close attention and also, as we said last time two weeks ago, fees consider a no fine system. >> next speaker, please. >> the future must not belong

i think that is very important 0 for us to circulate our dollars the community before we bring them outside of the community for the time we have one dollars in the community is the better off we are it is about economic empowerment by apron ingress the businesses that are here. >> shopping local cuts down the cyber foot you'll find cookies and being transported the world where everything is manufactured and put on the assembly line having something local is meaning more the more we support our local businesses the more i can walk down to where i need to
(shouting.). >> more and more city's high san francisco is committing to dislocate to end all traffic death that means improving safety for people walking and driving and safety on our streets is everyone's responsibility people can make mistakes but not result in injury or death all traffic collisions are preventable as drivers you play a large role that will give you the tools to drive safely on streets a recent
survey asks hundreds of drivers about save city introduce driving what did they say watch for distracted behavior and slow down and be patient and check for people before you turn the facts about city driving shows how important to be alert most collisions happen in good weather allowance even at 25 mile-per-hour it takes a vehicle 85 feet to stop this is almost 7 car lengths slowing down makes collisions less savior when a person is hit by a passerby vehicle 25 minor the chance of death is 25 percent 40 percent that increases inform 85 percent slowing down didn't cost much
time driving behind a person takes 9 extra semiautomatic and stopping at the yellow light takes only 30 seconds by hitting someone costs you hours and weeks of our time and maybe a life take a deep breath and take you're time cities cross america are being safely for walking and driving some streets are confusing here's what you need to know all intersection kroukz of novelist marked some are marked to make them more visible other crosswalks and intersections are raised to the level of sidewalk to actress as speed bump and people are maybe crossing be cautious and watch for people when you approach any intersection advanced limit
lines and pedestrian yield signs show drivers where people walk and stop behind the lines at stop signs and for people crossing bulb outs where the sidewalks extends into the street make that tease easy to see pedestrians and remember to slow down whether making reasons and watch for people on sidewalk estimations extensions that maybe closer than you expect and bicyclists may motive to the left to get around bulb outs this gives people a head start allowing pedestrians to enter the crosswalk before transfer starts moving makes them more visible pedestrian scrimmage and stop the vehicles in all
directions allow people to cross including department of building inspection scrambles are paired with no light restriction and rapid beacons you turn bright whether the pedestrians are there or the center is activated precede slowly as you approach the beacons especially, if their activated a pedestrian crossing light turns yellow before turning sold red back to flash red procedure after making a full stop as long as the sidewalk is empty and, of course, stop whenever the light is red traffic circles reduce conflicts you must stop at the strewn and precede around the raise your right hand of the circle watch for people in
crosswalks and people in bikes coming around the circle arrows indicate where people with bikes share the intersections and people have ride to people on bikes have the right to use the lane whether or not in the sharing bike lanes are for people protected by parks e.r. parked cars and stay out of separated bike lanes unless an emergency dashed bike lanes are a shared zone four for vehicles to change lanes slow bike lanes allow the circles their unusually sprayed before me from other traffic some bike lanes are built to the level
higher than the street but lower than the sidewalk they provide a safe separated space sponsor cyclists are around vehicles the box areas are marked with the stencil at intersections act as advanced limit lines for people to garter at a red light this increases the 1r0ir7b9 to drivers people will ride past stopped vehicles at the fronltd of the intersection give them room and stop short of limit line behind the bike without objection and cross only after the green light and people cleared the bike box bicycle traffic lights allow people on bikes to proceed while vehicles are stopped be unaware aware of those bike san francisco general hospital but stay alert and only
skrans when the vehicle is cleared the intersection let's take a quiz to see what all of learned here we go number one when do month collisions happen did you say in daytime you're correct question two if an intersection is not marched is it still a crosswalk yes did you get it right great job one more before we go on what's one of the best things to do to avoid collisions? you can it take a breath pay attention and slow down city streets are crowded and chaotic so seeing everyone every single everything is difficult here's a test how many times did the white team pass the ball?
if you answered 11 you're correct but did you notice anything else also be aware ever you're surrounded and remember that is easy 0 miss something if you're not looking for it here's some basic principles driving near peep e people from you're driver's seat it is difficult address our mirrors to reduce blind spots people on bicycles maybe be in our blind spot give yourselves plenty of time to react look out stay on the road from building to
building not just curve to curve check driveways and behind parked vehicles for people that enter our path turning vehicles are especially dangerous important people walking and collisions often occur when vehicles are making tunnels when you turn remember check for people using the crosswalk before starting you're turn watch for people on bikes traveling in the ongoing direction always check our mirrors and blind spots patience pays off take a moment to make sure you're clear while it might feel you'll save time by driving fast or turning without checking you won't save driving only adds a few semiautomatic to our trip a collision can cost you, your job
or someone's live here's important things to remember all crosswalks are legal and pedestrian have the right-of-way people cross the street anywhere children and seniors and people with disabilities are the most vulnerable think city strits give buses and streetcars a lot of the space or people returning to catch a train don't block the box this creates dangerous situation for people walking how are forced into moving traffic and people bicycling out of the bike lane and people on bikes most city streets are legal for bicyclists even without signs people biking can fall in front of you provide a safe amount of space when passing someone on a bike a
minimum of 3 feet is required by law in california and people on bikes prefer to be in the bike lane in for the this is often to avoid accidents give them room people on bikes will stay away from the traffic or watch out for open doors whoops that was a close one expect people to go to the front of the light and pass on the right a tap of the horn maybe useful to make you're preservation known but avoid using the horn it may saturday night be someone vehicles anybody right turns are especially dangerous important biking always approach right turns properly signal early and wait for people biking through
the intersection move as far to the right to people on bikes can pass on the left let's try a few more questions who are the most vulnerable people on city streets? children? seniors, and people with disabilities why do people on bikes ride close to travel there to avoid car doors what is one of the most dangerous situations for people walking and riding bikes? turning vehicles and what can you do to make sure that everyone is safe in any situation? thartsz stay patient and alert and, of course, slow down
parking and loading a vehicle on accredit city streets is a challenge weather parking and unloading always check for people in our mirrors and blind spots and on the driver's side with our right turn right hand this causes you to look 40 on your left for bicyclists when passersby exiting the vehicle make sure about opening the door know where loading zones are if not loading zones available use side streets never stop in bike lanes or traffic lanes. >> bad weathering and visible rain and fog or low lighting make it hard to see you're
vehicle is likely to slide or loss control in eye i didn't controls and create issues for people walking and biking they tried try to avoid pulled and umbrellas and construction get slippery for people the safety thing to do in conditions whether wet or icy or dark slow down and drive more carefully remember going fast may on this save you a few semiautomatic but speeding may cause you a life or you're job people walking and biking are vulnerable people can be distracted or make unsafe decisions as a driver the responsibility for safety lies with you a collision could mean the loss of our life or you're job and
dealing with the legal implementations could take years or an emotional toll if someone is killed in a crash help us achieve vision zero and everyone can use the streets safely. >> thank you for watch and following the important driving tests your remember we're counting on you >> my name is andrea, i work as
a coordinator for the city attorney's office in san francisco. a lot of it is working with the public and trying to address their public records request and trying to get the information for their office. i double majored in political science and always tried to combine both of those majors. i ended up doing a combination of doing a lot of communication for government. i thought it would connect both of my studies and what was i was interested in and show case some of the work that government is doing. >> i work for the transportation agency known as muni and i'm a senior work supervisor. >> i first started as a
non-profit and came to san francisco and started to work and i realized i needed to work with people. this opportunity came up by way of an executive fellowship. they had a program at mta to work in workforce development type project and i definitely jumped on that. i didn't know this was something that i wanted to do. all i knew is that i wanted to help people and i wanted to empower others. >> the environment that i grew up that a lot of women were just stay-at-home moms. it wasn't that they didn't have work, but it was cheaper to stay home and watch the kids instead of paying pricey day care centers. >> my mom came from el salvador during the civil war. she worked very hard. when she came here and limited
in english, she had to do a service job. when i was born and she had other kids, it was difficult for her to work because it was more expensive for her to be able to continue to work in a job that didn't pay well instead of staying at home and being able to take care of us. >> there isn't much support or advocacy for black women to come in and help them do their jobs. there also aren't very many role models and it can be very intimidating and sometimes you feel uncomfortable and unsure of yourself and those are the reasons exactly why you need to do it. when i first had the opportunity, i thought that's not for me. my previous role was a project manager for a biotech start up. i thought how do i go from technology to working in government.
thinking i didn't know about my skills, how am i going to fit in and doing that kind of work. thinking you have to know everything is not what people expect have you, but they expect you to ask questions when you don't know and that's important. >> my mom was diagnosed with cancer. that was really difficult. she encouraged me to go to school because in case anything happened i would be able to protect myself. i wanted to be in oncology. i thought going to school it would set me for the trajectory and prepare me for my life. >> we need the hardships to some of the things that are going to ultimately be your strength in the future. there is no way to map that out and no way to tell those things. you have to do things on your own and you have to
experience and figure out life. >> you don't have to know what you are going to do for the rest of your life when you are in college or high school because there are so many things to do. i would encourage you to try to do everything that you are remotely interested. it's the best time to do it. being a young woman with so many opportunities, just go for it and try everything. .
