8:10 pm
this is quite a big number of only 4 percent of our homeless population working with the hot team we're going and trying to engage with people living in r v vs and vehicles all the time and you know in district 10 right now, we're tracking 68 r vs and that's not including advancivan other things people are living in district 10 is particularly impacted by people living in r cvs and district 2 for example, we know of 8 r vs living at the marina green this is not a good solution and mother one thing it is just a lot of different people that go to living in their cars as as solution for
8:11 pm
the high housing prices the city i have a close friend thought that was a great idea to live in a tailor by ocean beach this didn't upgrade or workout 6 months cops were moving in this was the wrote this solution i'm saying the working person a friend of mine and i tried to talk him out of this this was yur years ago. >> where is he now i understand the story. >> he moved to tucson and and teacher teaching math. >> living in a house. >> in a house he was a carpenter i will say it can be - we're trying to tackle this with various solutions it is defenda difficult i see those san francisco that are you know completely stuffed to the gills and symptomatic of things going
8:12 pm
on in some people's lives i see people involved in drug trafficking if so though the a typical situation but incidents of disorder that containment this like division and others but can be some of these and other people that are feeling for safe in their cars than a shelter so it is hard to apply the rule and interference for everyone that is using a car sow a twaer shelter and it should be temporary this is a question how we want to s to go and what kind of policies and procedures to open up not a san francisco problem you know very closely we have west oakland and many, many r cvs and people living in cars done the peninsula people common to live
8:13 pm
in their vehicles and some of our close communities provide some programs it can be effective so monorye and sonoma the counties have big parking programs they patron are a church or sonoma and use county fair grounldz and work with people living in their cars and catholic charities to pasture that people transition from their car back into the community the regular housing stock so one of the opportunities we had recently wiwe met with spot on parking they help to manage the parking for churches and other institutions, schools and they especially to rent out over night spots where low usage for the different
8:14 pm
institutions and have suggested they have properties that don't have a high market-rate and would like to be able to offer them as part of a safe park program so for me it is really important that we go and talk to people that be living in vehicles and say hey this would be something that we try to make real with thwould this work for you an answer a solution to what you're facing our initial discussions with the small group of people was no just to be overnight was not the answer they noted some place long term and so the spot on we were still rolling out large focus groups to see part of a population rather cough the street then to attach to services to transition
8:15 pm
of ti them out of their cars way initially was not well received so you know some of this is reiteration to make sure people know that could be good and always rolling out programs some hesitance with this a good or bad thing and often people see that as a really good thing you know we've discussed pier 80 it is a good example i know the first group we invited in basis a little bit hesitance and not existed just this last we can invited in 60 people off division street and will take another 25 and tuesday another 25 and on wednesday another 25 it is xooifrt it is become acceptable a great alternative so i think similarly with the
8:16 pm
safe park projegram we could tu a corner but we need people working together with the coalition that works are for many years on the issue with the community of people living in cars with martin's we're hoping to do a focus group especially because district 10 and that district is so impacted with many issue so i guess i'll stop there and answer questions. >> you i want to enlightenmenu guys pier 80 is growing that's a good thing i think we have work to do to make pier po importa80 and people will want to come thank you for i guess describe
8:17 pm
to us your effort where you, you are and what you've been doing the main point i want to communicate is that the legislation calls for providing space for over night vehicles and other large vehicles can you or i know you didn't mention in our brief summary but spot on i don't know if this is a representative from spot on. >> we invited them. >> all right. you know what i'm going to take it permanent those people that i invited didn't come that means the lack of seriousness with this issue so heads will role. >> mark my words on that one so describe what spot on does in our partnership and give us idea of where the available locations
8:18 pm
and people can go and spots and how many large vehicles have been taken advantage an. >> spot on are not open they came to us and said those are the assets not all can be utilized in the private marketed a lot of free street parking the area a church may have a lot but for us street park is problem a place to go and not be harassed is kind of something nice to offer we can augment it with you know outreach staff and connection to services possible toilet assess and others shower assess and peeves of the puzzle that allows people their preferring their vehicle to our traditional shelter services we
8:19 pm
offer continuously but work with the people towards resolving their houselessness without them having to come into the shelters spot on was offering various blocks around the city a lot of church spaces and some schools and some like the offer night they work with you know some were around balboa park that the city college parking and there was various ones we are not take the opportunity ones in particular but an overnight disposspot you have to leave in the morning and that it is good intervention you you know enough does that meet threshold of peoples needs so this our point to do focus groups with people in the city
8:20 pm
know what is enough ? what their offering maybe not enough on itself but how to incentivize what campfire services. >> i'm getting frustrated i've hearing the high-level good ideas this is not about that but about details so i don't really want to hear about phone call groups i want to hear a focus group committed and coming in i want to hear a timeline i want to hear cumulative data on monday, february 22, 2016, and in one months time we can accept this and expect that. >> i'm getting pulled from i'm not hearing what i need to hear so spot on is not on board what does that take how many large vehicles and kiss i kiss e
8:21 pm
across the city. >> 200 and 75. >> how many at pier 80. >> zero. >> what does it take to get them over there. >> well, i i mean, we work with the shelters a certain ratios for bathrooms and toilets. >> fair unlawfenough what is t ratio. >> 20 to one for toilets. >> and given the number of folks you have there. >> we have- whether we get to one 50 by wednesday we will be at the rash ratio for the toilets and expending the toilettes access to the amount of cars. >> have you started the process with the amount of toilets. >> we have been seeing how to expand typically i don't like to open a very big shelter one 50 is pretty big and a lot of people but this is a huge site
8:22 pm
they could accommodate multi types of things happening we've started to look at what, if anything, it takes to expand the homeless showers and toilets if this is possible you can you give me expert advise why you don't want to open up large shelters. >> it is a program models that is more punitive type of rules and entry the vacuolume of peop and the safeties we have to back ourselves up in more security and that kind of model it undermines our efforts larger to help people that are in crisis and under stress and try to get through and find the other side of that when we have those large shelters next door with lots of
8:23 pm
people in one location and the security and tight rules sort of is 0 it becomes hard. >> can a what do we do open up a bunch of small ones. >> that's hard to cite as you know with the previous hearing when it comes to citing small in-law units and you know to krielt poster programs it is difficult. >> i would like you to do you and your team advisors and advocates think about a way to come up with the strategy to pull the over sized vehicles off the streets and into pier 80 i know there is not a strategy right now on site so ladies and gentlemen, for those of you not been to pier 80 is a huge hanger very, very large with large parking the industry of san

of solutions obviously we really want to be solution oriented i want to be focused this is a frustrating situation people that live in their vehicles are as frustrated as the people d l dealing with the large vehicles we want to move 24 with a solution we're frustrate since 2012 with those ideas and no movement a best practices on safer programs that the hope commissions from usf two years ago this is a ton of things that have not yielded happened some of the solutions creating mechanism to drop the toe charges to a lot of improvement that may not be aintent but 72 hours notices people are seeing in sleeping in our vehicles those things are been enforces
8:37 pm
would he ev we've seen increase in taking folks in their vehicles when this legislation came out that was about the commercial trevehicles that wase focus and curve that overuses of public school parking it as issue around homeless so i think there is a place to look at the amendments 53 and having a focus on the issue at hand i'll not go into a safer parking program we support it withholdi100 percent people had that are willing to go into that the lasts thing a full assessment on parking restrictions in san francisco we see the presentation that sfmta ga gave toy only 5 percent of streets are 5 percent of the parking ban they don't know how many on the parking restricts that make it impossible for people to park their investigates investigat vehicle

8:44 pm
perpetuating homelessness and people start to lose theirs vehicles and are in tense the this will be a green great solution so not having this would be a big thank not having it staffed by the sheriff's department. >> who would staff is if not sheriff's department. >> we'll have sit down at the table and work this out is possible i mean, we, do that we're a strong community in san francisco and we can workout that. >> for sure i think there is barriers why people don't always go but i think super easy barriers to be worked out. >> thank you, thank you next is kelly and one other that's all the cards i have if you want

8:46 pm
insurance because churches are expected to be doing this type of kind of thing we had his attorney they said that the city needs to get your attorney to look at things the problem it has not move forward they pushed the ban by preventing our alternatives at those rates we need to do this and the ban but not followed through where interest is a moratorium is specifically because there has not been alternatives but medicaid did melody is amaz to attune to what is about we can do better not many people we can do differently options poem want help they need it thanks.
8:47 pm
>> thank you and i had the find for cards (calling names). >> do not. >> my name is indian moved if new york city in 91 any rent was 200 bucks a month and gone from three hundred to 38 hundred i bought myself an r v the smarter thing i've saved so much money i pay rents to myself and the irs i don't like what is going in the city in terms of the homelessness i agree that city parking lo would be a buff thing i'm going to there tonight. >> it is not open don't spread the word yet. >> we are working on it. >> the concept prostitution,
8:48 pm
drugs and methamphetamine plastic balabs i've been all over the city i judge don't see it i've been pink and yellow slipped my vehicles after 72 hours i ticket my girlfriend so we talk about the bus division other than that. >> the bus you're not talking about a fuel market. >> we are r v are habitual parkers i like to park because the r vi feel safe and it might appear but it is more of the reality that we just feel comfortable we are where we are and safeve zones so i ask for se parking. >> thank you ian before you go have you considered parking our r v if candle stick r v park.
8:49 pm
>> to do a month to month that is like paying rents 18 hundred bucks and very few amenities i go to the festival every year and essentially dimple trucks that hook up to our refuse. >> it is completely inexpensive to you. >> i don't - and you don't pay are it. >> we do huge sports teams like baseball played at one point address football patthat' lot of real estaity not used wh turn it to a state park and 20 bucks stay for 14 days and come after 17 hours but it pays for
8:50 pm
itself. >> my question not a big universe but specific to you you've identified yourself as paying yourself and some source of income under not park where it is legal with the proper hookups instead of out of compliance. >> we have to cable for a living i travel from tahoe to la that would work what is easier for me to have a vehicle when i want to go where i want to go. >> my question when you go where you go whether you want to go and come back to san francisco and instead of parking on a street why not park in a designated placed that is for the citywide and those slots are almost filled up like candle stick not allowing this and don't allow dumping the only
8:51 pm
place we're allot to dump is the pacifica so they're filled they've lost thirty spots to ocean erosion and don't have the spots they used to so i say use the baseball over at palace or pier 80 those are areas that are very, very railway used putting a food truck or shower bus give us a couple of amenities and again relatively inexpensive i pay 25 bucks to get into interstate park they have amenity and electrically electricity and some place to get on a computer don't have to go that far but think about how much money nfl baseball and the
8:52 pm
9/11 makes they can including but not limited to build a permanent structure on the parting area and ian i love how you spend other people's money. >> supervisors good afternoon. i'm brad i'd like to know who weigh speak to get information data aon who is that will be the ordaccomplit haney ameaning all the programs and dates and things that are accomplished i saw the presentation and not a heck of a lot the mta i want you guys to pursue this since 2006 if people want to keep their jobs kicking the can down the street i'd like to see that there was a goal to do this by this date and we did this and i'd like to know who

8:54 pm
resident last year, i lyft and moved to oakland it made financial sense i he was a traffic control person in the 7 and 8 grade i'm a compliance person i sit there and see this rule since 197 1u can't sleep in our vehicle it is like rent control if you're not for the force the experience with what we have on this is books our actually putting people in handcuffs they're not changing their behavior why would they did 72 hours parking situation well, great we have street cleaning once a week you wait 72 hours and call the police and it takes a week to get there probably the next day but still say we know that guy but the
8:55 pm
street cleaning will happen anyway to the 72 hours is the effective and andy has been fantastic working on the squawki showcase square my clients can't get to me pay $8,000 a month and hard to get clients and get frequented out i tried to tell them don't get freaked out that's my point thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors i wanted to speak specifically about the issue of oversized vehicles and people sleeping in our cars in the marina along the laguna area cross from fort mason we've seen a huge increase in overnight parking and camping and there is closer to 25 or thirty vehicles parking there on
8:56 pm
a regular basis i'll agree we may be talking about 275 but the number of people parking in their cars citywide is large . most of the folks are elderly folks one gentleman that is living with 7 dogs those dogs weigh over one pound and two individuals very large dogs there's a lot of folks that are sleeping in their cars there's a gentleman that sleeps in his car at the rec and park area with his petition far even though we're seeing mammals and the folks that have r v have toilet facilities on board but a number of people living in advancivanc have we're seeing a how long increase in excrement and no
8:57 pm
facilities at park mason we're seeing a huge amount of garbage dumps on the street every single day it is overwhelms dpw is throwing their hands in the hai it is too much and no one is able to really percentamanage i i think if there's a solution at pier it needs to have the facilities necessary for those folks to be able to live in their vehicles that includes a truck that comes in and takes out the waste and delivers water and electrical we have a parking garage for you to park your vehicles will not be enough to make people want to move there have an entire zone in the willie brown, jr. no improvement why leave our basis on reality
8:58 pm

9:17 pm
play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening. really listening to watch what is going to emerge. i like this thing where you put your foot on his back. let's keep it. were your mind is is how you build your life. if you put it in steel or in failure, it works. that works. it is a commitment. for most artists, it is a

vacation and a life that they have committed themselves to. there is this notion that artists continue to do their work because of some kind of the external financial support. if that was taken away, artists would still do their art. it is not like there is a prerequisite for these things to happen or i will not do it. how could that be? it is the relationship that you have committed to. it is the vocation. no matter how difficult it gets, you are going to need to produce your art. whether it is a large scale or very small scale. the need to create is going to happen, and you are going to have to fulfill it because that is your life.

responses and has become a resource that the law enforcement agencies across the you understand we're currently have reform projects in spokane washington and philadelphia and columbia and california ae and north carolina and other plays in california and milwaukee the acholic beverage initiative is just a collaboration it is important to note that is an independent as what was mentioned and condition to emphasize that objective assessment that the police department has entered into willfully and the cooperation to do this is critical for the success the purpose of collaboration to #k3406 trust providing a means to trochlgs around
9:43 pm
specific issues it is not a short-term solution for a serious efficiency that identifies the issues within an agency that may affect the public trust and offers recommendations based on a comprehensive assessment for how to resolve those issues and enhance the public trust in relationship to the community agency participation the acholic beverage process is voluntary i repeat voluntary it covers the agencies they must demonstrate a recommendation and undertake significant changes as efforts to reform i am confident i am indeed confident chief suhr and mayor ed lee and otherser leaders would be involved let me start by assessing how the process starts it starts by focusing on this the assessment process senators by developing some preliminary input did we get
9:44 pm
to some goals and objectives these are community-based the police department and the community be the community etc. but the goal to create some goals and objectives that will allow us to get to a focus on our assessment following the assessment i'll going get to the assessment following the assessment the cops office has a report detailing the specific recommendation there will be a serious of reports we're talking about transparent we have to practice what we preach and the report my office will help with the recommendations at a 6-month mark and again at 12-month mark and again at the end of 6-month point is takes over 2 years we're robert's rules of order rosters and have our

9:51 pm
that they'll occur to have on the staffs to review the data we will eventually come out with we know that it is an expression that our city our police commission our office of citizens complaints our stakeholders and community and the board of supervisors are all working together to make sure we do doing everything we can to rebuild trust between our police department and the community it serves and make sure we're doing it in a verifiable way in a data driven way in a true way it can be reviewed so that we can off ourselves up in a transparency like never before i think this is good for the city i asked the chief this b be done we quite frankly needs to get the trust and move quickly that didn't mean on a day to
9:52 pm
day basis we give up on good policing every single day we're working with the community to do that we're working during this event we're hosting to make sure everyone is safe and conduct ourselves the higher way and informed way with all our communities members but this review is important to us important simple that we get victims of crime that is truly transparent to everyone that we are more than willing to be the best standard police department the country and that put ourselves out there to insure we gain the criticism that we need to have in order to be a better city i welcomed this i applaud the efforts of our department of justice to do that and come in i know that in talking with mr. davis and attorney stretch that is relatedly a new service the past the department of justice had to
9:53 pm
force their way into many cities without the need of cooperation and as chief ray said this is a acholic beverage effort we'll give up the information and allow ourselves to be imposed by way of practices and the practices we should have and those we should adopt this is what more than cities should do to increase the safety and the trust that we all are
9:54 pm
the process of building in everything we do i want to see is that it didn't end or start with our police department this is obviously one of the most important things we're doing with the department of justice as the mayor i have to be finding on education and focused on in equality and focused on affordable housing have to be focused on making sure our neighborhoods are not living in isolation a lot of people feel that they do sometimes and it starts with the eyes needs for the attitudes that point those goals our city continues to improve itself in every community the city to make sure that our city is responsive i want to say thank you to doj it is just a start we'll put the necessary resources when they're recommendations that are made they won't be in follow-up with the board of supervisors and the city and making sure that we comply more than comply we equally seize the opportunity to be a more modern city. >> thank you and for this chief suhr. >> i too want to join in the mayors comments and saying how appreciatively for the attorney stench and correct davis and others
