12:07 pm
what i spent a couple of minutes that is annual clean up up of 1060 our bible schools everyo year we find problematic that was introduced a wagon by supervisor wiener are that and co-sponsored by supervisor breed and basic it does 3 things one thing it creates a waiver process for our filing fees to this point we've had a waiver process not codified and that is the problem for the dissatisfy a city attorney and everybody involves this is allows us to do what we've been doing to insure that people can pay like the nonprofits and neighborhood groups have a way to have fees waved and the second thing we're
12:08 pm
doing is trying to you gupgrade notification requirement put in in 2009 requiring issues the mixed use vacadistrict and leavt the language the code was pretty much like best efforts not strong and not very up to date we basically mirrored what the planning department does with the 312 notification we're giving the option to the applicants that have outreach to neighbors and this is in addition to the outreach policy that you guys also enforced in this hearing and so that's that and hopefully this is not going to be a problem for anyone that is more and better outreach and the last thing is a change in
12:09 pm
the 9 month window you guys are familiar what you achieve a continental grant for the product you get 9 months according to code you've seen many times where you know due to construction delays or some kind of black hole bureaucracy or funding that simon's someone comes to us and that footstep a lot longer than 9 months we need a way for the commission to allow an extension for that because otherwise the consequence for a large project starts all over again. >> i have a quick question this is introduced to the board. >> yes. >> what happens does it go to committee. >> it sits for another 20 days this is a thirty day wait and on to committee yeah. >> and ludicrously. >> what committee.
12:10 pm
>> i think that is land use. >> uh-huh then what. >> for the board and i don't expect it to be of substance boutique changes. >> thanks. >> just a question about the mirror of the 312 is many then mailed out by the applicant or by the entertainment commission and the applicant. >> they have to get the list if the us or planning. >> uh-huh. >> or a list then. >> great. >> right. >> okay thank you. >> then my another questions. >> that's that one the only other one to yubt a copy of the agenda has a fabulous for the 10 b legislation which is the code word for this administrative code chapping introduced off god years the making from supervisor campos
12:11 pm
office and of him to hearing last week and so at committee nothing but positive it is almost no input by the police they've seen and read it and given comments and representative from the police department indicated to the community inform issues or comments their fine with that and it is basically creating a much more like obviously system for the application of the p10 fornix special event timeframe for the folks who want 10 b and for the police officer t to have an appeal issue and not necessarily agree with what the outcomes are and kaejz this dependent on in terms of reporting we live in theory starting when the legislation gets signed begin to get how
12:12 pm
much the 10 b was assigned i'm not sure how to implement it is the police department change not us we will be the loop according to the legislation in terms of what happens after so i thought that was interesting i think that is call the roll certainly the outreach the discussions we had literally years ago that will improve things and lastly the new position that is no longer new but still not filled is moving forward we have 24 applications during the posting period there being vetted. >> 24 they're beiir been vetted throu personnel preys and test that meets the minimum qualifications and you know there we're psyc psychosome supplemental
12:13 pm
questions and scheduling interviews liend of the march i you cross your fingers tightly behind our back hiring is a long process but that this will be the last hire i do as well and it will be a good one. >> so i don't have by corrective action 0 i'm going to turn it over to jordan if you have any questions. >> commissioner lee. >> how is shawn doing. >> shawn is gfine and he is record to work as of this date tomorrow. >> a question about the 10 b legislation i know that kind of a schedule of fees was one of the requests that the nonprofits or for profits or whatevoever can pred and not get charged is that part of that. >> i don't remember i'll send
12:14 pm
you a copy of that. >> yeah. back and forth from the police department so the end results might be different than you saw. >> great. >> thank you. >> all right. inspector pauley. >> good evening commissioners very busy couple of weeks i'll start with containment received on the 13 about the tunnel it up u top again, this time a applicant sent me pictures three or four people standing in front of the venue not causing problems but nevertheless, a complaint. >> same gay guy. >> same guy the owner responded because the complainant attached the owner to the communication or whatever the owner responded with his her

12:16 pm
fine i had a walk through the night before they were in complains bcompliance but nevertheless, did a bunch of inspectors the most notable are the playboy party abused they had a lot of - like a tent at the time set up and booming speakers so 3 blocks away you could hear a base that's serious so i don't think that is an issue going forward the director talked about that the legislation came through and changed a lot of the development but nevertheless, that was probably the most serious of any of the cases we saw this past super bowl event weekend did a walk through it was fine they were look a little bit lou
12:17 pm
an issue for the rest of the weekend but fusion lounge had an influx of people a line that wrapped up the block i've not seen it like that but no issues were recorded but i've yet to talk to the general manager about it we'll trying to get to the bottom of that and see if this is a trend or something as far as the promotion public utility did a couple of sound tests last friday pretty uneventful a limit of it they know to talk to the management go pretty much the only establishment that complained they deal with them and dealt with them already you know made changes to they're building or whatever they've done stuff not to get complaint from the hotel across the street
12:18 pm

12:20 pm

12:21 pm
wh when they're loud at the super bowl event inside vethey have a door like the supervisor tang area their alcohol and people are out there that don't opens and shuts maybe some of the sound was escaping during you know times but really i mean, it was quiet outside i mean again, if at their limit i can clearly hear at the limit the neighbors agree that was okay. i could clearly hear the sound outside and we aheard nothing not a lou night commissioner lee there was nothing not a peep again i don't think the neighborhoods are totally making it up but again, it's not a compliance issue. >> do we know how many complaint we got from all the parties and events of super bowl
12:22 pm
efforts. >> a good question. >> there was normally couldn't are more than 10 like total which is not terrible and a couple were out at the playboy party error anger people because of at&t park that we got directly i'm not sure we checked in with 9-1-1 we haven't received any we get 311 and check that ourselves but certainly with the at&t we'll check things might have council so we get a good sense people railroad ready so that speaks in preparation. >> and you think you got some complaint from the playboy and from the metalica. >> there were one or two
12:23 pm
people not happy with the noise. >> spiral. >> oh, the concert and excelsi commissioner mccray right 5 of those were other specific club related complainants at all. >> not bad. >> you know some people may not like alicia keys. >> how dare they. >> or the republic or all the people for concert ticket. >> the issue of spiral was those where earlier. >> they were very early. >> alicia keys were late they ended at 10 no complaint that i know of from fireworks and maybe train people that don't tells you it's not our issue it is pretty - i don't know relatively
12:24 pm
speaking light or heavy but mana manageable. >> you're right the residents where a were lent to they were ready for the new thing knew a, week or too long and live with that, i heard the fictitious i thought my next door neighbor was in that but again, i think that the residents were like super bowl it's great we'll live with that. >> i think people complapined bye about traffic and transportation and everything commissioner perez. >> how about valentine's day weekend i think not normally a big event and any complaint or incidents. >> short answer no again. >> long answer nope not that i saw (laughter) one final question about the at&t parking lot do we have
12:25 pm
jurisdiction over permitting that. >> we do give amplified sound for things that hoappen like cirque de soleil it requires a certain amount of yes and no but, yes it is rented and the land is the giants. >> right. >> they say there's a party happening there is probably a party happening and got it i mean, did you - didn't sound like you made adjustment to the sound or endorsing. >> i think the general consensus was supervise weekend that will be over and pretty much because of the ineffectiveness of sound they turned it off i didn't want to be the guy no, no we didn't - make them 345ik and adjustment
12:26 pm
but let them know about the issues. >> right. right >> okay. that it brings up a point the sense that regular loudspeaker the tent might be good and their sound system is huge. >> you can't contain sound in a tents they're made of vinyl or clothes at&t's and they are tied together and not possible. >> they'll have to turn it off it is as simple as that i don't want to that. >> you don't want to be a party pooper is there anyone from the public that wishes to speak on the staff report not seeing any, public comment is closed. item 4 police department questions or comments i don't see any police here we'll move

12:51 pm
when a resident of san francisco is looking for health care, you look in your neighborhood first. what is closest to you?
12:52 pm
if you come to a neighborhood health center or a clinic, you then have access it a system of care in the community health network. we are a system of care that was probably based on the family practice model, but it was really clear that there are special populations with special needs. the cole street clinic is a youth clinic in the heart of the haight ashbury and they target youth. tom woodell takes care of many of the central city residents and they have great expertise in providing services for many of the homeless. potrero hill and southeast health centers are health centers in those particular communities that are family health centers, so they provide health care to patients across the age span. . >> many of our clients are working poor.
12:53 pm
they pay their taxes. they may run into a rough patch now and then and what we're able to provide is a bridge towards getting them back on their feet. the center averages about 14,000 visits a year in the health clinic alone. one of the areas that we specialize in is family medicine, but the additional focus of that is is to provide care to women and children. women find out they're pregnant, we talk to them about the importance of getting good prenatal care which takes many visits. we initially will see them for their full physical to determine their base line health, and then enroll them in prenatal care which occurs over the next 9 months. group prenatal care is designed to give women the opportunity to bond during their pregnancy with other women that have similar due dates. our doctors here are family doctors. they are able to help these women deliver their babies at
12:54 pm
the hospital, at general hospital. we also have the wic program, which is a program that provides food vouchers for our families after they have their children, up to age 5 they are able to receive food vouchers to get milk and cereal for their children. >> it's for the city, not only our clinic, but the city. we have all our children in san francisco should have insurance now because if they are low income enough, they get medical. if they actually have a little more assets, a little more income, they can get happy family. we do have family who come outside of our neighborhood to come on our clinic. one thing i learn from our clients, no matter how old they are, no matter how little english they know, they know how to get to chinatown, meaning they know how to get to our clinic. 85 percent of our staff is
12:55 pm
bilingual because we are serving many monolingual chinese patients. they can be child care providers so our clients can go out and work. >> we found more and more women of child bearing age come down with cancer and they have kids and the kids were having a horrible time and parents were having a horrible time. how do parents tell their kids they may not be here? what we do is provide a place and the material and support and then they figure out their own truth, what it means to them. i see the behavior change in front of my eyes. maybe they have never been able to go out of boundaries, their lives have been so rigid to sort of expressing that makes tremendous changes. because we did what we did, it
12:56 pm
is now sort of a nationwide model. >> i think you would be surprised if you come to these clinics. many of them i think would be your neighbors if you knew that. often times we just don't discuss that. we treat husband and wife and they bring in their kids or we treat the grandparents and then the next generation. there are people who come in who need treatment for their heart disease or for their diabetes or their high blood pressure or their cholesterol or their hepatitis b. we actually provide group medical visits and group education classes and meeting people who have similar chronic illnesses as you do really helps you understand that you are not alone in dealing with this. and it validates the experiences that you have and so you learn from each other. >> i think it's very important to try to be in tune with the needs of the community and a
12:57 pm
lot of our patients have -- a lot of our patients are actually immigrants who have a lot of competing priorities, family issues, child care issues, maybe not being able to find work or finding work and not being insured and health care sometimes isn't the top priority for them. we need to understand that so that we can help them take care of themselves physically and emotionally to deal with all these other things. they also have to be working through with people living longer and living with more chronic conditions i think we're going to see more patients coming through. >> starting next year, every day 10,000 people will hit the age of 60 until 2020. . >> the needs of the patients that we see at kerr senior center often have to do with the consequences of long
12:58 pm
standing substance abuse and mental illness, linked to their chronic diseases. heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, stroke, those kinds of chronic illnesses. when you get them in your 30's and 40's and you have them into your aging process, you are not going to have a comfortable old age. you are also seeing in terms of epidemics, an increase in alzheimer's and it is going to increase as the population increases. there are quite a few seniors who have mental health problems but they are also, the majority of seniors, who are hard-working, who had minimum wage jobs their whole lives, who paid social security. think about living on $889 a month in the city of san francisco needing to buy medication, one meal a day,
12:59 pm
hopefully, and health care. if we could provide health care early on we might prevent (inaudible) and people would be less likely to end up in the emergency room with a drastic outcome. we could actually provide prevention and health care to people who had no other way of getting health care, those without insurance, it might be more cost effective folks who c
1:00 pm
in the room stay otherwise overflow space yeah. >> sure yes. >> okay so we have a quick in the amount of announcement if everyone can be a little bit quiet please. sorry a quick in the amount of we have interpretation in spanish and cantonese if you know of anyone that needs the service refer to the back of the room we have the equipment this will be repeated in
