RHONDA, CAN I ET SOME ASSISTANCE ON THE PODIUM, PLEASE? THANK YOU.>>HE WAS A STUDENT OF THE WELL KNOWN STUDENT RIGHTS ACTIVIST RABBI AND RABIES LEWIS HAS MADE A CAREER OF PURSUING A BETTER WORLD AND PEACE MAKING, AS S DISCUSSED IN HIS BOOK, THE TORAH OF RECONCILIATION. WE’RE SO PLEASED YOU COULD BE WITH US TODAY AND WELCOME.>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. FRIENDS, A STORY IS TOLD OF A PAINTER, A HOUSE PAINTER, WHO HAD A HABIT OVER A LIFETIME OF THINNING THE PAINT WITH WATER IN ORDER TO INCREASE HIS PROFIT MARGIN. HE THUS DECEIVED HIS CUSTOMERS, FOR HE USED LESS PAINT TO COVER A GREATER AREA. THEN AT ONE POINT, VERY LATE IN HIS LIFE, HE HEARD A HEAVENLY VOICE. THE VOICE SAID REPAINT, EPAINT AND THIN NO ORE. WELL, IT APPENS THAT THIS HOUR IS REALLY THE HIGH HOUR FOR REPAINTING OR REPENTING IN JEWISH COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD. I DON’TYOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF AT BEGINS AND FOR SOME IS UNDERWAY. IT’S A FULL 25 HOURS SPENT TOGETHER FASTING AND IN PRAYER, SEEKING FORGIVENESS FROM OTHERS FOR FALLING SHORT AND GRANTING FORGIVENESS LIBERALLY FOR THOSE WHO MAY HAVE RUN THUS. IT’S A VERY INTENSE DAY OF SELF AND COMMUNAL ASSESSMENT. IT’S ALSO A DAY OF HEALING AND BEGINNING, A NEW BEGINNING. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY DRAMATIC HEALINGS OF ONG TIME TENSIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS THAT I WITNESSED PERSONALLY IN THIS SEASON, ON THIS DAY. THE DAY IS MARKED BY FREAK WENT CONFESSIONS, PERSONAL CONFESSIONS AND ONE CHARACTERISTIC OF THESE CONFESSIONS THAT THEY’RE ALWAYS EXPRESSED AND THOROUGH. WE ARE GUILTY, WE BETRAY, WE HAVE ROBBED, WE HAVE SLANDERED, THOSE OF YOU THAT KNOW SOME HEBREW INSTEAD OF. [ SPEAKING HEBREW ]>>ICE ALWAYS IN THE HEBREW. THIS CONFESSION GOES ON AND ON IN THIS WAY, SO THE QUESTION IS WHY, WHY IN THIS VERY PERSONAL DAY OF REPENTANCE, WHY THE USE OF THE PLURAL, THE INSISTENT USE OF THE PLURAL.>>RABBI, EXCUSE THE INTERRUPTION. I WONDER IF WE CAN ASK THE PERSON IN THE BACK ON THE PHONE TO STEP OUT INTO THE LOBBY, PLEASE. PLEASE STEP OUT INTO THE LOBBY, MA’AM, SO WE CAN HEAR OUR SPEAKER. ONE MOMENT, RABBI.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THE QUESTION IS WHY THIS INSISTENT USE OF THE PLURAL NUMBER RATHER THAN THE SINGULAR. SURELY EVERYONE NDIVIDUAL IS NOT GUILTY OF THIS COMPLETE LITANY OF WRONG DOING. THE REASON THAT I LOVE MOST SEEMS TO BE THAT WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR TRANSGRESSIONS THAT THE OTHER — OF EACH OTHER. THE REACH MAY ACTUALLY BE TRULY GLOBAL. IT’S A RECOGNITION OF OUR CONNECTIVENESS AROUND THE WORLD, WE ARE MORE AND MORE INTERDEPENDENT AND IF THERE ARE SERIOUS FAILURES MORALLY, WE HAVE FAILED AS A HUMAN FAMILY. WE ARE DEFEATED OR WE OVERCOME TOGETHER. MY TEACHER AS IS MENTIONED, WROTE AND SPOKE FREQUENTLY IN A FREE SOCIETY, SOME OF GUILTY, BUT LL ARE RESPONSIBLE. SO WE CONFESS AND THEN GENUINE REPENTANCE SURELY MEANS THAT WE THEN RESOLVE TO DO BETTER AND ACT ON THAT RESOLVE, TO SEEK A BETTER WAY INDIVIDUALLY AND TO HELP BUILD A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE CON THRIVE. SO THIS MORNING ON THE EVE OF YOMK.>>PPUR, HERE’S MY PRAYER. MAY WEB BLESSED WITH THE BONDS OF EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY, OUR COUNTRY AND BEYOND. GRANT THAT WE REALIZES THAT THERE IS NO ZERO SUM WHEN IT COMES TO THRIVING OR FALLING IN THE HUMAN FAMILY. MAY WE KNOW DEEPLY THAT WE SHARE ONE FATE, WHATEVER OUR RACE, OUR FAITH, OUR ETHNICITY. MAY WE EMBRACE OUR RESPONSIBILITY, EXTEND OUR EMPATHY, ASK AND GRANT FORGIVENESS GENEROUSLY AND MORE THAN IN ANY TIME IN RECENT MEMORY, MAY WE WELL KNOW THAT THIS IS THE HOUR TO STAND TALL AND TO ACT. THANK YOU.>>RABBI, THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE EFFORT TO BE WITH US THIS MORNING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS, AND WHILE I’M WORRIED FRANKLY THAT I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER REPAINT REPAINT AND THIN NO MORE, I’M HOPEFUL THAT YOUR REMINDER THAT SOME OF GUILTY BUT ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE WILL STAY WITH ME EVEN LONGER. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU FOR THE OBJECTOR.>>COLLEAGUES THAT TAKES US TO ITEM NUMBER FOUR, TO ANNOUNCE ADJOURNMENTS INS MEMORIAL.

IT’S MY HONOR TODAY TO ASK THE BOARD TO ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF SOFIA, KNOWN AS SOPHIE TRINIDAD. ON SEPTEMBER 25, JUST 13 DAYS AGO, 10-YEAR-OLD SOPHIE TRINIDAD LOST HER BATTLE WITH BRAIN CANCER, SHE ATTENDED ROD KELLY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN GILROY AND ENJOYED EATING LUNCH WITH HER PRINCIPAL EVERY DAY. SHE ENJOYED SPENDING TIME WITH HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND OFTEN INVITED THEM VER TO SPEND TIME TOGETHER AT HER HOME.>>WHY DON’T WE ASK YOU TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT.

SHE ATTENDED SCHOOL IN GILROY AND ENJOYED EATING LUNCH WITH HER PRINCIPAL EVERY DAY. SHE ENJOYED SPENDING TIME WITH HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND OFTEN INVITED THEM OVER TO SPEND TIME TOGETHER AT HER HOME. SHE LOVED TO DANCE AND LAUGH WITH HER SISTER, LEILA. SOPHIE ENJOYED DRESSING UP AND MADE SURE HER CLOTHES MATCHED HER SHOES. SHE WAS KNOWN AMONGST FAMILY AND FRIENDS AS THE LITTLE FASHIONISTA. SHE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF MANY AND TAUGHT COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING, AND RESPONSIBILITY IN AN ELOQUENT AND PIRITUAL MANNER. HER BRAVERY, COURAGE AND STRENGTH WERE INSPIRING. SHE WILL LIVE ON IN THE HEARTS OF HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND HER LEGACY OF LOVE WILL BE CHERISHED. ON BEHALF OF THE COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA, I EXTEND HER MOTHER ELIZABETH TRINIDAD AND HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS OUR SINCERE CONDOLENCES.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SUPERVISOR WASSERMANN AND TO FAMILY OR FRIENDS WHO MAY BE LISTENING OR WITH US IN THE CHAMBERS, PLEASE KNOW THAT THE ENTIRE BOARD SENDS ITS SYMPATHIES AND ITS RESPECT FOR THE BRIEF BUT WELL LIVED LIFE OF SOFIA TRINIDAD. THANK YOU. THAT TAKES US TO ITEM NUMBER FIVE, COMMENDATIONS AND PROCLAMATIONS. I DON’T BELIEVE WE HAVE ANY TODAY. ITEM NUMBER SIX, PUBLIC COMMENT. PUBLIC COMMENT IS THAT PORTION OF OUR AGENDA SET ASIDE FOR COMMENT BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ON NON AGENDAIZED ITEMS PROPERLY WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF OUR BOARD. WE HAVE SIX OF THESE TODAY, AND SO THAT MEANS THAT WE WILL SET ASIDE TWO MINUTES, AND WE’LL START WITH MARIA HERNANDEZ TO BE FOLLOWED BY KATE LEHANE, MADELINE DRISCOLL, MARK TROUT, WAYNE JASPER AND MIKE BENEPAO. GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING. MARIA HERNANDEZ. IT IS NOT A SECRET THAT YOU SUPERVISORS ARE NOT FRIENDS OF UNION WORKERS. IN YOUR CASE, SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG, I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU ARE NOT BEING IMPRESSED WITH UNIONS AFTER THE UNFAIR TREATMENT THAT YOU RECEIVED FROM CEMA WHO USED $30,000 OF MEMBER DOS TO TRASH YOU, DURING YOUR CAMPAIGN. THAT WAS REALLY UNFAIR. HOWEVER, I WOULD EXPECT THAT ALL OF YOU WOULD RISE ABOVE YOUR PETTY VENDETTA OR PERSONAL FEELINGS AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT. YOU SUPERVISE OR CORTES SEE AND CHAVEZ, YOUR SILENCE IS DISGRACEFUL. LET’S TALK ABOUT BEING DESPICABLE. IT IS THE PART THAT — MEETS INCOMPETENCE THAT CAUSED TAXPAYERS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND HE STILL HAS A JOB. DESPICABLE IS THE FACT HAT THE COUNTY THAT AN EXODUS OF GOOD WORKERS WITH TOUGH WORKING CONDITIONS, THE LACK OF ALL — JUST CULTURE.D BULLYING,- DESPICABLE IS THE LACK OF RESPECT FOR SANTA CLARA TAXPAYERS AND NEGLECT AND ABUSES THAT YOU OFFICIALS CONDUCT AGAINST THE PUBLIC WELFARE OF SENIORS, CHILDREN AND WOMEN IN THIS COUNTY. YOU NEED TO START RETHINKING DRE YOUR WORDING IS OFFENSIVE AND IS NOT EVEN TRUTH. THIS IS NOT HOW DEMOCRACY WORKS. THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS AND THE REST OF YOU, YOU SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE MORE RESPECT. IT IS A SHAME THAT YOU ARE SAYING OH, HOW WONDERFUL THE WORKERS ARE WHEN THEY ARE RESPONDING TO EMERGENCY SITUATIONS BUT WHEN IT COMES TO SUPPORTING THEM FOR FAIR WAGES, THERE’S NO SUPPORT, SO THAT’S REALLY CHEAP DOUBLE TALK. THANK YOU.>>NEXT SPEAKER IS KATE LEHANE.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME. I REALLY WISH I WASN’T HERE BUT NOTHING’S BEEN DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, SO I’M HERE AGAIN PLEADING FOR YOUR HELP. SO THERE’S SOMETHING VERY, VERY WRONG WHEN THE POLICE AND THE D.A. WON’T INVESTIGATE CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE, BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH PRESENTATION HIGH SCHOOL. WITH THE BOTCHED CASE OF FELONY SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A 14-YEAR-OLD, THE POLICE FAILED TO INCLUDE PHONE AND MEDICAL RECORDS N THEIR REPORT. THEY DIDN’T INTERVIEW KEY WITNESSES. THEY NEVER EVEN TALKED TO THE ACCUSED IN PERSON. IN ANOTHER CASE, ASSAULT AGAINST A 16-YEAR-OLD, THE POLICE HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, EXCEPT ASSIGN A CASE I.D. NUMBER. THERE’S A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER ROAMING OUR STREETS JUST A FEW MILES FROM HERE. IN THE CASE OF CONSPIRACY TO COVER UP SEXUAL ABUSE, THE POLICE HAVE STRUNG US ALONG FOR NEARLY TWO YEARS. WE CAN’T GET ANY STRAIGHT ANSWERS ABOUT ANYTHING, AND SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO TRIED TO FILE POLICE REPORTS WERE NEVER EVEN CONTACTED BACK. MEAN WHILE, THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE SHRUGS THEIR SHOULDERS AND PRESENT THAT THEY HAVE NO INFLUENCE IN THE MATTER, WHEN WE ALL KNOW THAT THEY DO. THESE VICTIMS THAT COME FROM EVERY ONE OF YOUR DISTRICTS, EVERY ONE OF THEM, SO I’M ASKING YOU PLEASE, DO SOMETHING TO ADVOCATE FOR THEM. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU AND OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MADELINE VALERIE DRISCOLL.>>EVERYONE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ME AND TRYING TO RAISE THE RENT. HE SAID I NEED TO GO AND TALK TO YOU PEOPLE. THEY KICKED ME A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY BACK FOR THIS LANDLORD BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH AND THEY’RE NOT GOING TO DO IT A SECOND TIME. ALL YOU DID AS LEAVE ME ABUSED AND TRY TO BLAME ME FOR IT. YOUR DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS A CRIMINAL. THEY APOLOGIZED TO ME AT THEIR DEFENSE DEPARTMENT AND MR. PREMINGER HAS SEEN TO IT AND THEY GAVE ME A LETTER AND STILL NEED TO DO MORE THAN THAT. THE ISSUE IS THEY LEFT ME ON THE STEPS OF THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT. I HAVE HOUSING MAN FRONTAL NUDE, ILLEGALLY PARTITIONED, HE HAS TOO MANY TENANTS AND IT’S UNSAFE. TWO CASE MANAGERS SAY I NEED AN APARTMENT TO LIVE IN REGARDLESS OF WHAT’S AVAILABLE. I’M ASKING YOU TO ASK THE GOVERNMENT TO GIVE ME A SPECIAL NEEDS APARTMENT. I’M NEARLY 60 YEARS OLD, I NEED TO BE KEPT SAFE. NUMEROUS PLACES, 26 MOVES. THEY SAY THAT’S TOO MANY MOVES, THEY CAN’T DO MORE. I’M GOING ON AN INTERVIEW IN SUNNY DAY. IF THEY’RE GOING TO TRY TO SUCKER ME INTO A CONTRACT WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO SEE SINGLE OCCUPANCY, THEY’RE TRYING TO CHARGE ME TOO MUCH, THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GIVE ME ANY MONEY TO LIVE WITH. THEY’RE GIVING ME EBT NOW AND I NEED THAT RENT TO PAY BUT I NEED HELP. MR. ROACH HAS SPOKEN WITH ME ABOUT THIS, HE AGREES, MR. PREMINGER AGREES. HE JUST GOT FF WITH ME ON THE PHONE HERE. HE’S GONE TO HAVE HIS SURGERY DONE. HE DESERVES HIS TIME OFF. YOU ARE EXCELLENT AS THE PERSON YOU SAID I WAS A DISTINGUISHED GUEST, BUT I’M ASKING YOU TO HELP ME, NOT JUST TELL ME I’M A DISTINGUISHED GUEST. HELP ME. I DON’T WANT TO DIE IN THIS VALLEY. THESE PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS, EVERYTHING SHE’S SAYING IS TRUE. HELP ME NOW.>>WE’RE OUT OF TIME.>>SPEAK WITH ME AND HELP ME.>>WE’RE OUT OF TIME, THANK YOU. MARK TROUT, YOU’RE UP NEXT. LET ME BRING MR. TROUT UP, SIR AND THEN WE’LL GET TO MR. JASPER>>MR. DROUGHT, YOU’RE UP NEXT.>>KING CYRUS, HIS TOMB HAS BEEN PRESERVED IN PERSIAN HE WAS RAISED UP, SPOKEN OF BY GOD AND HE TYPIFIED CHRIST. THERE ARE MANY RESPECTS THAT TRUMP HAS TO CYRUS, IT’S VERY STRANGE. HE KILLED THE KING OF BABYLON DURING THE FEAST OF SHAQ WHICH CORRESPONDED THAT PARTICULAR YEAR WHICH IS THE FEAST OF TRUMP COMING UP. IT’S JUST VERY STRANGE. HE DRAINED THE EUPHRATES RIVER AND IT LOWERED AND THEY WERE ABLE TO ATTACK BABYLON AND THOUGHT IT WAS INDESTRUCTIBLE. IT’S DAY HAD COME BECAUSE JEREMIAH THE PROPHET SAID THUS SAYS THE LORD, I WILL VISIT YOU. HE VISITED HIM THROUGH CYRUS IN THAT SENSE. HE TYPIFIED CHRIST, SEE. I HAVE RAISED HIM UP IN RIGHTEOUSNESS. THERE’S ONLY BEEN ONE MAN AND THAT’S THE LORD JESUS HRIST WHO’S EVER BEEN RIGHTEOUS. HE WAS PURELY RIGHTEOUS. HE WAS GOOD. HE SAID I ALWAYS DO THOSE THINGS WHICH MY FATHER TELLS ME. ALWAYS. 24/7. SO WHEN HE DIED N THE CROSS AND HE SAID MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME, HE WAS IDENTIFYING HIMSELF WITH THAT SPALM OF DAVID. HE WROTE THIS PROPHECY THAT JESUS QUOTED WHEN HE WAS ON THE CROSS. PART MY GALMENTS AMONG THEM. EVEN THE VERY WORDS THAT THEY WOULD SPEAK TO JESUS ON THE CROSS WERE WRITTEN DOWN BY DAVID. HE TRUSTED IN GOD. LET GOD DELIVER HIM, SEEING HE TRUSTED IN HIM.>>OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS WAYNE JASPER TO BE FOLLOWED BY MIKE BENEPAO. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE THIS MORNING.>>THANK YOU.>>MY NAME IS WAYNE JASPER, A RESIDENT OF HAVE YOU NOTE VEIL. I’M ALSO A ARENT F A CHILD WITH ITEM AUTISM AND OTHER DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY. I SERVE ON THE BOARD OF HOUSING COALITION AND.>>MR. JASPER, ACCUSE THE INTERRUPTION. I THINK YOU’RE HEAR TO SPEAK TO ITEMS 24, 26 AND 27. IF YOU CAN’T WAIT, WE’D BE HAPPY TO LET YOU FINISH YOUR REMARKS BUT THEN YOU WOULD NOT BE BLE TO SPEAK AT THAT TIME.>>I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK AT THAT TIME.>>WOULD YOU LIKE TO WAIT UNTIL THEN TO SPEAK OR SPEAK NOW.>>I’D LIKE TO SPEAK NOW.>>I APOLOGIZE FOR THE INTERRUPTION. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMPLETE YOUR REMARKS.>>I HAVE A CHILD WITH AUTISM AND I CURRENTLY SERVE ON THE BOARD OF HOUSING CHOICES COALITION AND THE RUN A SUPPORT GROUP FOR PARENTS OF ADULT CHILDREN ITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. A YEAR AGO, THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS APPROVED $40 MILLION TO BE SPENT ON HOUSING FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. I’M ASKING YOU TO APPROVE $10 MILLION THIS YEAR TO SUPPORT PROJECTS IN SANTA CLARA, SUNNY VEIL AND PALO ALTO. I WOULD ALSO LIKE YOU TO CONSIDER APPROVING AN ADDITIONAL $10 MILLION ALSO THE SECOND INSTALLMENT TO CONTINUE BUILDING A PIPELINE OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IF I COULD ASK YOU TO WITHHOLD COMMENT WHILE OTHERS ARE SPEAKING. THANK YOU, MR. JASPER. WE HAVE YOUR COMMENTS. NOW TO MIKE BENEPAO. GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING. SUPERVISORS. I’M VICE PRESIDENT FOR RNPA. I’M HERE TO CONVEY ON BEHALF OF THE 3,000 REGISTERED NURSES WHO CARE FOR THE COUNTY’S STATIONS EVERY DAY THEIR FRUSTRATION, DISAPPOINTMENT AS FRANKLY ANGER AT THE DISRESPECTFUL TREATMENT YOUR NEGOTIATORS HAVE BEEN SHOWING US DURING BARGAINING. THE NURSES REPRESENTED BY RNPA, THE COUNTY NURSES, YOUR NURSES WORK HARD DAILY. WHILE YOU ACKNOWLEDGE US AND OUR CONTRIBUTIONS VERBALLY WHENEVER YOU FEEL APPROPRIATE OR NECESSARY, IT IS DISAPPOINTING THAT WHEN IT’S TIME TO PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE THE MOUTH IS, THE COUNTY SEEMS TO COME UP VERY SHORT. YOUR NEGOTIATORS GUIDED BY YOUR DIRECTIVE OFFERED PROPOSALS LEAVING THE NURSES BEHIND THE SALARY RANGE. THIS MEANS MORE AND MORE NURSES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LIVE WHERE THEY WORK. MORE AND MORE WILL BE FORCED TO MOVE ON TO BETTER PAYING JOBS, MAKING IT EVEN HARDER FOR THE COUNTY TO RETAIN GOOD EXPERIENCED NURSES. THE COUNTY TALKING ABOUT BEING A PREMIER PUBLIC HEALTH CARE PROVIDER, HOW THEY HAVE EXPANDED THEIR ABILITY TO CARE FOR THE VULNERABLE PUBLIC YET HAS ONLY MADE VERY MINIMAL EFFORTS TO CARE FOR THE STAFF THAT PROVIDES THE SERVICES. THAT TO US TO QUOTE DR. JEFF SMITH WHEN ADDRESSING THE MEDIA RECENTLY ABOUT SCIU DESPICABLE. THE COUNTY TREATMENT OF TS EMPLOYEE DURING BARGAINING HAS BEEN DESPICABLE. YOU SPEAK OF MAINTAINING HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIP. HARMONY CAN’T ONLY BE ACHIEVED WHEN THIS IS FAIR TREATMENT. THE NURSES ASK THAT YOU TREAT MEMBERS FAIRLY. WE DEMAND THAT THE COUNTY BARGAIN IN GOOD FAITH.>>I BELIEVE THAT’S OUR LAST SPEAKER UNDER PUBLIC COMMENTS, SO THAT TAKES US TO ITEM NUMBER SEVEN. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF FOLKS — IS YOUR CARD FOR NUMBER SEVEN? I’M GOING TO SK YOU IN THE FUTURE TO GET YOUR CARD IN RIGHT AWAY SO WE CAN MANAGE THE NUMBERS AND THE TIME, PLEASE.>>THANK YOU. SORRY ABOUT THAT. I FILLED THAT CARD OUT AND STUCK IT IN THAT BACK SLOT THERE. DIDN’T REALIZE WE’D RUSH THROUGH PUBLIC COMMENTS SO FAST. I WAS HAVING FUN FILMING THE UNION OVER HERE. I RAN INTO MIKE. I THOUGHT THEY’D BE IN SOCIAL SERVICES AND I RAN INTO THEM. YOU GUYS HAVE QUITE A TURNOUT RIGHT NOW. I’M IMPRESSED. THEY HAVE ALL THEIR MEGAPHONES AND THEY’RE CHANTING OUT THERE AND SAYING SOME COLORFUL THINGS ABOUT YOU, JEFF, OUT THERE. IT WAS NEAT TO WATCH THE UNIONS STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE AND EXERCISING THEIR DEMOCRATIC VALUES AND KIND OF HONORING THE FIRST AMENDMENT, BUT THEY HAVE MEGAPHONES OUT THERE, SO THE THING ISIS WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS TECHNICALLY ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF SAN JOSE. RIGHT HERE IS THE CIVIL LAWSUIT THAT THE CITY HAS FILED AGAINST ME FOR OPERATING A MEGAPHONE, A SOUND AMPLIFIED DEVICE EXACTLY LIKE WHAT OUR UNION IS OUT THERE DOING. I WAS STANDING ON A SIDEWALK OUT THERE, BREAKING EDDIE GARCIA’S BALLS FOR TAKING MY PROPERTY, SO WHY AM I NOT ABLE TO DO THAT IN THE ANTI DEMOCRATIC CITY OF SAN JOSE OR SANTA CLARA COUNTY? I AM VERY SURPRISED THAT THE COUNTY HAS NOT TRIED TO PROTECT MY RIGHTS. IT’S NOT NECESSARILY SUING YOUR OWN FOOT BUT I’M SURPRISED YOU HAVEN’T FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY, SUH THEM FOR TAKING PEOPLE’S MOTOR HOMES AND CARS, MAYBE SUE THEM FOR VIOLATING PEOPLE’S CIVIL RIGHTS. MAYBE START OING THAT RATHER THAN SUING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ALL THE TIME. WHY DON’T WE START STANDING UP FOR THE POOR, THE HOMELESS AND THE MENTALLY ILL. THE CITY IS SUING ME FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? THEY COULDN’T GET ME ON A CRIMINAL LEVEL SO WENT AHEAD AND THREW THE ENTIRE KITCHEN SINK AT ME RIGHT HERE. YOU GUYS NEED TO START STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG TO HAPPEN IN AMERICA. THANK YOU.>>ALL RIGHT, LET ME CONFIRM WITH THE CLERK THAT IS THE LAST CARD. THANK YOU. THAT DOES TAKE US TO ITEM SEVEN, OUR CONSENT CALENDAR, AS WELL AS ANY PROPOSED CHANGES, AND WHY DON’T WE ASK THE CLERK TO BEGIN BY READING THE REVISED CONSENT CALENDAR WHICH I BELIEVE IS CURRENT ON OUR GOLDEN ROD COPY.

I’D LIKE TO REQUEST THE BOARD APPROVE MY REFERRAL ITH RECOMMENDATIONS DIRECTING THE ADMINISTRATION TO URGENTLY — FOR APPLICATION FEES AND ASSIST APPLICANTS IN NEED OF SUPPORT WITH THEIR DACA RENEWAL APPLICATION. I DON’T THINK THERE’S A NEED FOR ADMINISTRATION TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD AS I DON’T THINK THE AMOUNT OF MONEY IS VERY MUCH AND I’M RECOMMENDING THEY PROCEED WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION F NEEDED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE BECAUSE A DEADLINE IS ACTUALLY IN NOVEMBER. THE DEADLINE’S VERY QUICK.>>SUPERVISOR, LET ME INTERJECT, I THINK THIS IS TOPIC WE’RE PROBABLY GOING TO NEED A CONVERSATION ON TODAY SO I’M GOING TO ASK THAT IT STAY ON OUR REGULAR AGENDA.>>OK.

THE BODY OF WORK CAME OUT OF THE REENTRY NETWORK AND I WANTED TO THANK YOU THE COMMUNITY, PARTICULARLY BARBARA HANSEN WHO BROUGHT THIS TO US AND TO MIGUEL MARQUEZ WHO PLAYED A LEADERSHIP ROLE IN WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY ON THIS. THE REASON WE ADDED THIS TOPIC TO THE REENTRY WORK PLAN WAS BECAUSE WE WERE PROMPTED BY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE IN CUSTODY ARE SERVED IF THEY HAVE FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME AS PART OF OUR DIVERSION PROGRAMMING. COUNTY STAFF AND ADVOCATES DEVELOPED A REPORT AND WORK PLAN WHICH WENT WELL BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE UESTION WHICH WAS VERY GOOD. I’D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION FORWARDING STAFF TO REPORT AND ADDRESS FETAL CHALLENGE SYNDROME AND REPORT BACK THROUGH RESENT TRI OVER THE NEXT YEAR AND ALSO TO REPORT OFF AGENDA IF THERE ARE ANY EXPENDITURES THAT THEY ARE LOOKING AT OVER THE NEXT YEAR.>>ALL RIGHT. DULL NOTED. COLLEAGUES, ANYTHING ELSE BEFORE WE TURN TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC? WE HAVE THREE CARDS. LAST CALL FOR CARDS ON ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, THE CONSENT CALENDAR? AGAIN, LAST CALL.

FETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER IS A WHOLE BODY DISORDER WHICH OCCURS WHEN ALCOHOL PASSES THROUGH THE PLACENTA TO THE BABY BRAIN. THE DAMAGE IS LIFELONG AND RUNS THE SPECTRUM OF MILD TO DEVASTATING. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENLIGHTENMENT ON THIS ISSUE. IT IS TRULY ASTOUNDING AND UNIQUE IN AMERICA. EACH OF US ON OUR SEVEN MEMBER SELF STARTED FASD COLLABORATIVE HAVE LOVED ONES DEEPLY AFFECTED WITH FASD. FOR ME IT IS AS I SAID BEFORE, MY BROTHER WITH THREE MID 30-YEAR-OLD ADOPTED CHILDREN. THEY HAVE DEALT WITH EVERY SINGLE SYSTEM MULTIPLE TIMES EVERY YEAR, AS MUCH AS 100 TIMES COMBINED IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM IN A YEAR. NOT ONCE, NOT ONCE IN THOSE 30 YEARS, THIS IS WASHINGTON STATE, TWO HOURS ABOVE SEATTLE WHERE THERE’S A DIAGNOSTIC CENTER, NOT ONCE IN THOSE 30 YEARS HAS MY BROTHER HAD POSITED TO HIM THAT IT MIGHT BE THIS DISORDER. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SUPPORT GROUP FOR THEM. THEY HAVE BEEN TOTALLY ALONE AND THEY REMAIN SO. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY. FOR THOSE WE ARE GRATEFUL AND RELIEVED AND YOU SHOULD FEEL VERY PROUD AND VERY SMART. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER, COME ON UP.>>GOOD MORNING. MY NAME IS BRETT DAVIS. I’M HERE ON BEHALF OF ITEM AGENDA 79. CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW, RODEN BUILDERS IS TAKING SUB CONTRACTS ON THIS FOR CONTRACTORS THAT ARE NOT REGISTERED IN THE DIR AS PUBLIC WORKS QUALIFIED CONTRACTORS. THIS IS THE VIETNAMESE AMERICAN SERVICE CENTER, AND CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW, THE CONTRACTOR IN QUESTION IS FLORIAN INDUSTRIES, THE CONTRACTOR HAS VIOLATED THIS PROVISION MULTIPLE TIMES AND THEY ARE CURRENTLY WORKING N PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS AT WE SPEAK. THEIR PUBLIC WORKS REGISTRATION EXPIRED JUNE 30 AND SO I WOULD RESPECTFULLY ASK THAT IF WE CAN, HAVE THEM REMOVED. THEY ARE THE CURRENT LOW BIDDER ON THIS PROJECT AND IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE, TO POSSIBLY SUSPEND THIS CONSIDERATION UNTIL THAT IS FIGURED OUT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. THAT AKES US TO OUR THIRD AND FINAL SPEAKER, SCOTT LARGENT.>>THANK YOU, EVERY. SCOTT LARGENT. ON OUR BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS FOR OUR APPOINTMENTS, WHAT I’VE BEEN NOTICING AT SOME OF THE OTHER COMMITTEES THAT I USE AS THERAPY HAVE BEEN MAKING QUORUM. WE’RE STARTING TO SEE SOME THINGS CHANGING. NOW THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COUNCIL TRAIN WRECK, REMEMBER, ONLY MADE QUORUM 20% OF THE LAST TWO YEARS, WHICH WAS ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL IN OUR COUNTY. MORE PEOPLE AT THAT COMMITTEE NOW ARE REALLY TALKING ABOUT THAT. THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT HOW IT’S BEEN A FAILURE AND WHAT THEY’RE TRYING TO DO TO GET THINGS IN ORDER. WHEN WE HAVE THESE SEATS SITTING UNFILLED AND I LIKE WHAT DAVE CORTES SAID, IF SUPERVISORS ARE NOT GOING TO FILL A SEAT, THEN ONE OF THE OTHER ONES SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT. I’M NOT ALWAYS TRYING TO THROW THE BALL AT YOU, JOE, BUT WE’RE HAVING A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THE ONES THAT YOU HAVE APPOINTED AND IT’S THE SAME THING WITH THE OFFICE OF WOMEN’S POLICY. FOR SOME REASON IT ALWAYS PULLS UP DISTRICT FIVE. I’M NOT SURE IF PEOPLE WANT TO MAKE THAT HAUL OUT FROM PALO ALTO TO GO TO THESE COMMISSIONS. ATTENDANCE IS NOT MANDATORY, WHICH I FIND VERY, VERY STRANGE. WE HAD A DEPUTY CHIEF SEAN KNEE WILLIAMS THAT WAS ON THE JAIL DIVERSION AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SUBCOMMITTEE. HE WENT ONE TIME IN TWO YEARS. IT’S JUST SHOCKING THAT THAT WAS HIS TYPE OF ATTENDANCE. I LEFT HIM MESSAGES, SENT EMAILS, I TALKED ABOUT IT AT PUBLIC COMMENT. I RAILED ON HIM WITH THE BULL HORN OVER THERE. THIS GUY JUST GOT A JOB AS THE NEW POLICE CHIEF IN VALLEJO WHICH I’M SHOCKED. I THINK E SHOULD HAVE GOOD ATTENDANCE AND MAYBE THAT WOULD HELP WITH GOOD JOBS. I FEEL BAD FOR VIA LAY JOE, BECAUSE HE’S MORE THAN LIKELY NOT GOING TO SHOW UP FOR THEIR MEETINGS, EITHER. WE REGARD FAILURE IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY. THANK YOU.>>LET ME CONFIRM WITH THE CLERK THAT IS THE LAST CARD UNDER CONSENT CALENDAR. WE HAVE ONLY MINOR CHANGES, AS YOU’VE ALREADY HEARD, COLLEAGUES, ANYBODY NEED CLARIFICATION? ON THE DACA ITEM, I’M GOING TO ASK HAT THAT BE HEARD ON THE REGULAR AGENDA. SUPERVISE OR CHAVEZ, I SEE YOUR LIGHT IS ON, MA’AM.>>I WANT TO RECUSE MYSELF FROM ITEM 62 AND I JUST WANTED TO ASK IF THERE WAS ANYBODY HERE FROM FLEETS AND FACILITIES WHO COULD RESPOND TO THE SPEAKER WHO TALKED TO US ABOUT THE COMMENTS THAT WERE MADE? I ACTUALLY WANT TO TALK TO STAFF.>>I DON’T THINK WE HAVE ANYBODY FROM STAFF. WE’LL HAVE TO LOOK INTO IT.>>SIR, IF I COULD ASK YOU NOT TO COMMENT FROM YOUR SEAT, PLEASE. FOLKS, HANG ON JUST A MOMENT, PLEASES. FOLKS, WE’VE GOT A LONG AGENDA, CHALLENGING ISSUES. I WANT TO ASK EVERYBODY’S HELP TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY GETS HEARD RESPECTFULLY, SO PLEASE NO SHOUTING OUT FROM THE CHAMBERS. IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK, FILL OUT A CARD AND WE’LL BE HAPPY TO TAKE YOU. BACK TO SUPERVISE OR CHAVEZ. YOU’RE TRYING TO ET FOLLOW UP ON THAT ITEM.>>WE CAN CONFER THE SUB CROSSER HAS REGISTERED WITH THE STATE.>>I’M GOING TO REMOVE THE ITEM FROM CONSENT SO I HAVE A CHANCE TO INVESTIGATE THIS FURTHER BUT LEAVE IT ON TODAY’S AGENDA.>>FORD, THAT’S ITEM NUMBER?>>I DON’T KNOW, ‘LL FIND IT. THANK YOU. 62. NO, NO, NO. IT’S NOT 62.>>79, I BELIEVE.>>THANK YOU.>>ITEM 79, AND AT THE REQUEST OF SUPERVISE OR CHAVEZ WILL BE HEARD IN ITS REGULAR PLACE ON THE AGENDA AND ITEMS FOR CONSENT ARE HEARD AFTER WE’VE COMPLETED OTHER BUSINESS. THE OTHER THING SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, JUST TO BE CLEAR, I GATHER THAT IF WE COULD GET SOMEBODY FROM FACILITIES AND FLEETS HERE TO SPEAK TO THAT ITEM, THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL, YES?>>YES.>>I JUST WANTED TO GET THAT ENTERED INTO THE RECORD. ALL RIGHT. WITH THAT ADDITION, THANK YOU, ALL. WE CAN ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE VOTING PANEL ON OUR SCREEN. THAT WOULD ALLOW SOMEONE TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE CONSENT CALENDAR AS PUBLISHED AND AMENDED. WE HAVE A MOTION FROM SUPERVISE OR WASSERMAN, A SECOND FROM SUPERVISEOR CORTESE. WE CAN ANNOUNCE THAT THE MOTION IS CARRIED -0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US TO THE NEXT ITEM ON OUR AGENDA, WHICH IS ITEM NUMBER EIGHT. AND COLLEAGUES, AS YOU CAN SEE, BUT I WANT TO READ INTO THE RECORD, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING REWARDING THE ESTABLISHMENT AND MODIFICATION OF FEES FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH CONSUMER PROTECTION DIVISION, AND HAVING GIVEN THAT ANNOUNCEMENT, I’LL ASK THE DEPARTMENT MENTAL STAFF IF THEY’D LIKE TO MAKE A BRIEF VERBAL REPORT SUMMARIZING THE AGENDA ITEM AND THE DEMOCRATS RECOMMENDATIONS, AS WELL AS INTRODUCE THEMSELVES FOR THE RECORD. WELCOME. EXCUSE ME, WE NEED TO GET YOUR MICROPHONE FUNCTIONAL.>>GOOD MORNING. I HAVE WITH ME MIKE VALEA, DIRECTOR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND ROCHELLE GODY, DIRECTOR OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND CONSUMER PROTECTION DIVISION. BEFORE YOU TODAY IS A REQUEST TO MODIFY OUR SCHEDULE OF FEES FOR DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH FOR FACILITIES THAT PREPARE AND SERVE FOOD FOR THE PUBLIC. THESE ARE MINOR MODIFY CASES TO ADD NEW FEED CATEGORIES, SOME CHANGES IN STATE LAW AND TO PROVIDE DIFFERENT TIERED FEES SO WE CAN CHARGE FACILITIES THAT HAVE LESS COMPLICATED KITCHEN A LOWER FEE THAN FACILITIES TRYING TO INSTALL MORE COMPLICATE KITCHENS. WITH HAT, WE ARE HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.>>DO BOARD MEMBERS HAVE ANY CLARIFYING QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF? MISS WASSERMAN, THIS ITEM WAS HEARD IN OUR TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE. JUST WANTED TO MENTION THAT FOR THE BOARD. IN THE ABSENCE OF QUESTIONS FROM BOARD MEMBERS, I WILL FORMALLY OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. PUBLIC HEARING IS OPEN ON ITEM EIGHT. I WILL ASK THE CLERK IF WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM. CLERK INDICATES WE DO NOT. LET ME ASK ONE MORE TIME. DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON ITEM NUMBER EIGHT? WE DO NOT. THAT BEING THE CASE, WE WILL NOW FORMALLY CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING. THAT MEANS THE MATTER IS BACK BEFORE OUR BOARD, AND FOR ANY DISCUSSION OR DELIBERATION AS THE CLERK POSTS THE VOTING PANEL ON OUR SCREEN, ARE THERE COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS BY THE BOARD ON THIS ITEM? IF NOT, WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE FROM SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ. CAN WE GET A SECOND? WE HAVE A SECOND FROM SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN. I WILL NDICATE FOR THE RECORD, SEPARATE BUT RELATED MATTER, GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE STATE HAS NOW FOUND A WAY TO PROVIDE A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBILITY WHILE STILL ADDRESSING FOOD SAFETY ISSUES WITH RESPECT TO WHAT I CALL CHARITABLE FEEDING EFFORTS, AND YOU CAN SEE THE HEADS NODDING FROM STAFF, SO THAT FOLKS, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, CAN DO CHARITABLE FEEDING, FEEDING THE HOMELESS, AMONG OTHERS, JUST FOLKS WHO ARE HUNGRY OR FOOD INSECURE, BUT THEY HAVE TO GET THE FOOD FROM A COMMERCIAL KITCHEN, AND MONEY THAT THEY USED TO SPEND ON AND THEN TRANSPORT IT, MONEY THEY USED TO SPEND ON FOOD WILL NOW HAVE TO COVER BOTH THE FOOD AND PRESUMABLY THE RENTAL OF A COMMERCIAL KITCHEN. I THINK THAT’S GOING TO IMPOSE SOME COST ISSUES ON FOLKS OING GOOD WORK IN THE COMMUNITY, AND I’VE ASKED STAFF WITH SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN’S CONCURRENCE TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHETHER OR NOT THERE MIGHT NOT BE A WAY TO FUND SUCH EFFORTS, BECAUSE THERE NOW IS A MECHANISM TO MAKE IT WORK, BUT IT IS GOING TO IMPOSE DECISION COSTS. SO TO BE CONTINUED ON THAT ITEM, BUT AS FAR AS THE FEES, WE HAVE REVIEWED THEM AND SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN IS CHAIR OF THE HEWLETT COMMITTEE. WE’LL DISPLAY OVERHEAD. THE MOTION CARRIES 5-PEZ. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US TO ITEM NUMBER NINE AND THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING, AGAIN COLLEAGUES, JUST FORD, ANNOUNCING THAT ITEM NUMBER NINE IS A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE IMPLEMENTATION ON ENERGY EFFICIENT MEMBERS UNDER THE SAVINGS PERFORMANCE PROJECT AT COUNTY OWNED PROPERTIES AND WE WILL ASK STAFF TO STEP FORWARD, WHICH THEY HAVE DONE, AND OFFER BRIEF VERBAL REPORTS SUMMARIZING THE AGENDA ITEM AND THE DEMOCRATIC’S RECOMMENDATIONS.>>HI, GOOD MORNING. THIS IS A EARING FOR THE ENERGY SERVICES CONTRACT ANDS REQUESTING APPROVAL FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEMBERS WITH A CONTRACT VALUE OF $3,000,881. IT’S ALSO REQUESTING — AUTHORIZATION IN THE AMOUNT OF $3,088. AND EQUESTING AUTHORIZATION FROM THE BOARD FOR THE COUNTY EXECUTOR DESIGNEE TO ISSUE CHANGE ORDERS AS NECESSARY AGAINST THE SUPPLEMENTAL WORK ALLOWANCE AND FINALLY ALSO REQUESTING APPROVAL OF APPROPRIATION MODIFICATION NUMBER 63 IN THE AMOUNT OF $3,176,778 TO MOVE FUNDS FROM THE ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY FUND TO THE PROJECT SO THAT WE CAN CARRY FORWARD THIS CONTRACT. DETAILS OF THE CONTRACT IS FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY, WHICH INCLUDE MOSTLY LIGHTING RETRO FITS GOING FROM FLUORESCENT TYPE FIXTURES TO LED AND ALSO WATER EFFICIENCY, AS WELL. THAT IS A SUMMARY.>>THANK YOU. COLLEAGUES, ANY BRIEF CLARIFYING QUESTIONS BEFORE WE FORMALLY OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING? SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ.>>JUST ONE. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE DECISION NOT TO DO AN RFP OR RFQ?>>YES. SO WHEN WE STARTED THIS EFFORT, IT WAS ONE AS A RESULT OF A BOARD REFERRAL. WE WERE REQUESTED TO WORK WITH ENERGY SERVICES COMPANIES FOR IDENTIFYING IMPLEMENTING EFFICIENCY MEASURES. SO WE DID THAT. WE ISSUED AN ARTIFICIAL CUE AND SELECTED AS A RESULT OF THAT PROCESS THREE DIFFERENT ENERGY SERVICES COMPANIES. ONE OF THEM S SIEMENS WHO REQUESTED FOR CONTRACT APPROVAL YOU HAVE IN FRONT OF YOU. IT WAS DONE THROUGH AN ARTIFICIAL CUE WITH THE UNDERSTANDING HAT WE WOULD USE CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT CODE 4217 FOR IMPLEMENTING MEASURES RESULTING FROM THE INITIAL ENERGY AUDITS THAT WERE PERFORMED. I’M NOT SURE IF THAT ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION. WE’RE USING CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT CODE 4217 ALLOWING GOVERNMENT AGENCY’S TO CONTRACT DIRECTLY WITH ENERGY SERVICES COMPANIES IF CERTAIN FINDINGS ARE MADE BY THE AUTHORITIES OF THE GOVERNMENT AGENCY.>>THANK YOU. I’LL HAVE A COMMENT IN A MINUTE OR TWO. RIGHT NOW I WANT TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER CLARIFYING QUESTIONS. I WILL FORMALLY OPEN THE HEARING ON ITEM NUMBER NINE ON OUR AGENDA TODAY. THE HEARING IS NOW OPEN. LET ME CHECK AND SEE WITH THE CLERK. DO WE HAVE SPEAKERS? WE DO NOT ACCORDING TO THE CLERK. ARE THERE ANY SPEAKERS ON ITEM NUMBER NINE, WHILE THE. HEARING IS OPEN? IF OT, THEN WE WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING ND THIS WILL BE THE TIME FOR SOME DISCUSSION BY MEMBERS OF THE BOARD. COLLEAGUES, ON THE ONE HAND, I’M DELIGHTED TO SEE THIS ITEM HERE TODAY. ON THE OTHER, I JUST WANT TO COMMENT, WE’RE JUST NOW AT THE POINT WHERE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT IMPLEMENTING THIS. IS THIS GOING FORWARD?>>THAT IS CORRECT. JUST FOR CLARIFICATION, THIS HIS THE SECOND ONE. IF YOU RECALL, WE ACTUALLY ENTERED INTO AUDIT AGREEMENTS WITH THREE DIFFERENT AND THIS IS THE SECOND ONE.>>THAT’S RIGHT. THE HIRD ONE IS YET TO BE BROUGHT TO US, YES?>>THAT IS CORRECT.>>OK. SO BOARD MEMBERS, MY COMMENT, THE REASON FOR MY COMMENT AND CONCERN WHICH I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL TODAY IS I RAISED THIS ISSUE IN 2013, SIX YEARS AGO, AND I’M NOT LAYING THIS AT YOUR FEET, SIR, YOU’RE HERE ON BEHALF OF YOUR DEPARTMENT. I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING TROUBLING ABOUT A PROCESS THAT TAKES US SIX YEARS TO GET TO HE POINT WHERE WE ARE INALLY NOW IN A POSITION TO DO IMPLEMENTATION. I MEAN, IF YOU LOOK AT THE BACKGROUND SECTION ON PACKET PAGE 45, THIS TICKTUM WAS APPROVED BY OUR BOARD MORE THAN FOUR YEARS AGO ON AUGUST 11, 2015. THAT FOLLOWED A COUPLE OF YEARS WORTH OF PREPARATORY EFFORT. SO I GUESS I’M LOOKING TO OUR NEWEST MEMBER OF THE BOARD, AND JUST SAYING THAT I HOPE YOU HAVE SUCCESS IN STREAM LINING OUR PROCESS AS WE ALL WORK TOGETHER ON THESE ISSUES, BUT SHOULDN’T TAKE SIX YEARS TO GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE ARE NOW SAYING ALL RIGHT OW E ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IMPLEMENTING SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN UNDER DISCUSSION FOR THAT LONG. WITH THAT CONCERN REGISTERED, WE ARE READY TO SEE THE VOTING PANEL ON OUR SCREEN. I’M GOING TO ASK THE CLERK, WHO I KNOW IS MULTI-TASKING. I’LL LEAN FORWARD AND PUSH THE BUTTON TO MOVE THE ITEM. THE SECOND IS SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG. WE HAVE ONE MORE MEMBER OF THE BOARD WHO’S GOING TO CAST A VOTE. THAT VOTE HAS NOW ABOUT THAT CAST. ALL FIVE MEMBERS HAVE CAST VOTES. WE’LL ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS AND THAT CARRIES ON A 4-1 BASE. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US TO ITEM NUMBER 10, AND ON THIS ITEM, ITEM NUMBER 10, AS WE CADE EARLIER, WE’LL BE HEARD CONCURRENTLY WITH ITEM NUMBER ONE. ITEM 10-31.>>PRESIDENT AS I MIDIAN, WOULD YOU LIKE TO WAIT UNTIL 10:30? THIS ITEM CANNOT BE HEARD UNTIL 10:30. WE HAVE FOUR MORE MINUTES. WE’LL MOVE ON TO ITEM NUMBER LEAFS, WHICH IS THE ANNUAL VOLUNTEER LUNCHEON, WHICH WE’RE GOING TO DO AT 12:30 AND ITEM 12, A TIME CERTAIN OF 1:30. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, THAT DOES TAKE US TO THE DACA ITEM, ITEM 13. WE WILL DO ITEM 13 AND THEN GO BACK TO ITEM 10-31. SO ITEM 13 IT IS.>>THANK YOU. THE REIN I WANTED TO MOVE THIS ON CONSENT WAS THAT THERE WAS AN URGENCY THAT IS BEING FELT IN THE DACA COMMUNITY WITH THE ORAL ARGUMENTS BEING HEARD IN NOVEMBER ABOUT THE WHOLE STATUS OF DACA YOUTH. THIS WAS THE WINDOW TO APPLY IS 150-120 DAYS BEFORE THE ACA — BEFORE THE DACA — I FORGET WHAT IT’S CALLED, BUT THEIR PERMISSION. IT GETS BEFORE THE — DACA PROM OVERALL EXPIRES BUT BEFORE AN INDIVIDUAL PERSON’S DACA EXPIRES. THE BOARD ALLOCATED $200,000 IN 2019 FOR FISCAL YEAR 020. THE BOARD ALLOCATED $200,000 IN OUR FEES THAT ARE BEING REVIEWED AND UNDERWAY WITH AN ANTICIPATED START DATE OF JANUARY 1, AND SO WHAT WE’RE INTERESTED IN FIGURING OUT IS HOW TO MAKE FUNDING DIRECTLY AVAILABLE THAT’S MEANS TESTED FOR DACA RECIPIENTS TO COVER THEIR RENEWAL FEES WHO ARE MOVING TO GET THEIR RENEWALS BEFORE THE CURRENT COURT HEARING. WHILE THE COURTS WON’T NECESSARILY RESOLVE THIS, I KNOW IT TAKES THEM A LONG TIME O DO THESE PROCESSES, THE FEELING THAT THE COMMUNITY HAS, OF NOT KNOWING IS PART OF WHAT’S CAUSING PRESSURE. THAT’S WHY I’M BRINGING THIS FORWARD.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LET ME CHECK. DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM? SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ WE HAVE COMMENTS FROM MEMBERS OF OUR BOARD. SUPERVISOR CORTESE AND THEN ELLENBERG.>>ACTUALLY I DON’T THINK I NEED TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN I SUPPORT THE ITEM. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ WENT OVER THE PRIOR HISTORY OF IT, WHICH I WANTED TO RING OUT. IT’S NOT A MATTER OF FIRST IMPRESSION FOR US IN TERMS OF TAKING THIS KIND OF ACTION. I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH WAS EXPENDED, YOU KNOW, BY THE COUNTY IN TERMS OF APPLICANTS PRIOR. THE LAST TIME WE DID THIS, UT I DO RECALL THERE WASN’T A HIGH VOLUME, BUT IT DID ALLOW FOLKS WHO WOULD OTHERWISE NOT BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH THE APPLICATION FEE, YOU KNOW, TO GO AHEAD AND PERFECT THEIR APPLICATIONS IN TIME, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY VERY, VERY IMPORTANT, SO ANY WAY, THANK YOU SUPERVISEOR FOR BRINGING IT FORWARD AND HIGHLIGHTING THE HISTORY SO EVERYONE I SEE REMINDED THAT WE HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG.>>THANK YOU. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, I’M GLAD TO SUPPORT THIS REFERRAL. I HAD TO LOOK UP AND LEARN WHAT MEANS TEST WAS AND I HEARD YOU BOTH SAY THAT YOU ANT TO DO THIS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE WHICH I AGREE WITH, AND THAT IT SHOULD OF A MEANS TEST. IT’S POSSIBLE THAT A MEANS TEST COULD ACTUALLY SLOW DOWN AND ADD ANOTHER LEVEL F BUREAUCRACY ADMINISTRATION, SO IF YOU WOULD AGREE, I WOULD LIKE US TO ASK ADMINISTRATION TO CONSIDER WEATHER TO USE A MEANS TEST RATHER THAN DIRECTING THEM TO DO THAT.>>I THINK THAT’S A REALLY EXCELLENT POINT. THANK YOU.>>I JUST WOULD LIKE TO ON THE ISSUE OF MEANS TEST, I DO THINK GIVEN THE LIMITED NUMBER OF FUNDS, IF WE WANT TO STRETCH THOSE FUNDS AS FAR AS WE POSSIBLY CAN, OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO USE A MEANS TEST, IF IT CAN BE DONE WITHOUT SLOWING DOWN THE PROCESS. I THINK HOPEFULLY THE ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO UNDERSTAND THE DESIRE TO BALANCE BOTH SPEED WITH HELPING THE GREATEST NUMBER OF FOLKS WHICH A ALLOW US TO DO.D PRESUMABLY- I GUESS THE QUESTION I HAVE BASED ON THE REFERRAL SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, AND THE EARLIER COMMENTS YOU MADE WHEN THIS, WE TALKED ABOUT THIS POSSIBLY BEING A CONSENT CALENDAR ITEM IS ARE WE — THE ORIGINAL REFERRAL WAS TO REPORT BACK AND NOW I UNDERSTAND YOU DON’T WANT TO DO THAT, YOU WANT TO MOVE FORWARD EXPEDITIOUSLY. SO MY QUESTION IS HOW MUCH MONEY ARE WE TALKING ABOUT AND ARE WE ACTUALLY PROVIDING DIRECTION TODAY TO SPEND SOME SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF MONEY AND IF SO, DO WE KNOW WHAT THAT SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF MONEY IS.>>SO ONE OF THE COMPLICATIONS IS THAT WE’VE DONE AN RFP OR RFQ THAT RIGHT NOW PEOPLE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF RESOLVING, I MEAN APPLYING FOR AND SO WE DID ALREADY SET SOME MONEY ASIDE OR THIS BODY OF WORK. I’M REALLY ASKING FOR IT TO BE MOVED FORWARD OR PUSHED FORWARD. THE SECOND THING IS I REALLY AM LEAVING IT TO STAFF, IF STAFF WANTED TO GIVE US AN OFF AGENDA REPORT WITH A DO NOT EXCEED, I’D BE FINE WITH THAT, TOO. WHEN WE ORIGINALLY GOT FEEDBACK THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE ANYMORE FUNDS AVAILABLE RECOGNIZING THE APPLICATION PRICE OR COST IS $500, WE WERE REALLY TRYING TO GET — SEE IF WE COULD JUST ET THIS, THE STAFF TO BE RESPONSIVE, SO I’M HAPPY TO PUT A CAP ON IT, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT RIGHT NUMBER WOULD BE. I’M SORRY, I KNOW MIGUEL’S VERY BUSY DOING OTHER THINGS TODAY, BUT MR. MARQUEZ IS WHO WE HAD BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH.>>RIGHT. I THINK WE’VE ALREADY ALLOCATED THE MONEY. OBVIOUSLY WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO TELL EXACTLY HOW MUCH WILL BE SPENT UNTIL WE SEE HOW MANY APPLICATIONS COME IN, BUT I THINK WE CAN DO THIS BY RESPONDING BACK TO THE BOARD OFF AGENDA AND IF WE ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD FOR ANY AUTHORIZATION, WE’LL DO IT AS EXPEDIENTLY AS POSSIBLE BUT I DON’T THINK WE WILL.>>COULD WE GET SOME KIND OF NOT TO EXCEED NUMBER?>>LET ME JUST SAY THAT OUR CONTRACTS IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN APPROXIMATELY $200,000, SO IF WE COULD PUT THAT IN, I’D BE HAPPY TO INCLUDE IT.>>I APPRECIATE THAT. I DON’T WANT FOLKS WALKING OUT OF THE CHAMBERS THINKING THAT WE’RE GOING TO GET A $5 MILLION BILL BACK BECAUSE THAT’S NOT WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE A RELATIVELY MODEST AMOUNT OF MONEY IN A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT SSUE.>>I APPRECIATE MY COLLEAGUES THOUGHTS ON THIS, THANK YOU.>>WITH THAT FIGURE AS NOT TO EXCEED NUMBER WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IF TAFF THOUGHT WE WANTED TO EXCEED THAT NUMBER CAN COME BACK AND ASK FOR ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AND MAKE THE IS A CASE. WE’LL LET SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ LEAN FORWARD AND MAKE THE MOTION WHICH HE HAS DONE. THANK YOU FOR THE SECOND TO SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG. WE ASK ALL FIVE MEMBERS TO PLEASE VOTE ON THE SCREEN. NOW THAT THAT’S BEEN DONE, WE ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS. THE MOTION’S CARRIED 5-0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US BACK I BELIEVE MADAM CLERK, THE HOUR OF 10:30 HAVING ARRIVED AND THAT YOU CAN AGAIN FOR THE PROMPT TO ITEM NUMBER 10. ITEM NUMBER 10 HAS BEEN CONSOLIDATED WITH ITEM 31. FOR THOSE OF YOU HERE ON THAT ITEM, AND THERE ARE 12 SPEAKERS WHO TURNED CARDS IN, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE HERE, WE ARE TAKING ITEMS 10 AND 31 TOGETHER. AND LET ME START BY GOING TO SUPERVISOR WELL, LET ME SEE HERE. FORGIVE ME. CHAVEZ, THIS IS YOUR REFERRAL, AS I RECALL. YEP, THERE WE ARE. I’VE GOT TOO MANY PIECES OF PAPER. LET ME START WITH YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AS YOU MAY REMEMBER, WE HAVE ENGAGED IN AN EXTENSIVE FAIRGROUNDS MASTER PROCESS. SUSAN, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU DID NOT HAVE THE JOY OF EXPERIENCING, LET ME JUST SAY THAT, AND NOW ONE OF THE CHALLENGES IS WE’VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MOVE THIS FORWARD. OUR MASTER PLAN LMOST GOT US TO THE FINISH LINE. WE ADOPTED CLEAR GUIDING PRINCIPLES THAT TOOK THE BOARD QUITE A LONG TIME TO COME TO. WE ENGAGED THE PUBLIC AND GOT OVER 2,000 INDIVIDUAL OPINIONS THAT OUR STAFF LED AN EFFORT ON. 72% VALUE THE FAIRGROUNDS AS A. MEETING AND EVENT SPACE AND 80% WANT TO ACTIVATE RECREATION AT THE FOYER GROUNDS IF THAT WE FELL SHORT FINDING A PARTNER WHO COULD GENERATE ENOUGH REVENUE FOR OUR ASSET TO IMPROVE THE FAIRGROUNDS OPEN SPACE, FUND THE RECREATIONAL AMENITIES THAT WE WERE ASKING FOR AND PRESERVE AND ACTIVATE THE FAIRGROUNDS. FIRST WE WANT TO PRESERVE THE FAIRGROUNDS BY TELLING 4H THAT THE FAIR IN 4H AND FA PROGRAMS THAT THEY’LL HAVE A HOME, ALWAYS HAVE A HOME AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. BY DESIGNATING SOME LAND AT COUNTY PARK TO KEEP THE LAND UNIFIED FOR PUBLIC ENJOYMENT FOREVER. SECOND, WE WANT TO ACTIVATE THE FAIRGROUNDS BY EXTENDING OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH FMC. FMC AS GROWN INTO AN ORGANIZATION WHICH CAN DELIVER WE BELIEVE OR I BELIEVE THE NEW PUBLIC AMENITIES AT THE FAIRGROUNDS AND HAS ALREADY FOUND SOME PARTNERS WHO COULD BRING A WORLD-CLASS ENTERTAINMENT AND RECREATION TO THE FAIRGROUNDS. WHAT I’D LIKE TO ASK WITH THE INDULGENCE OF MY COLLEAGUES FMC’S CEO TO PRESENT SIX LINES ABOUT THEIR PLAN. IS THAT ALL RIGHT?>>WITHOUT OBJECTION. PLEASE PROCEED.>>GOOD MORNING. BOARD PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, ABRAHAM ANDROTTI, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE SANTA CLARA COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS MANAGEMENT CORPORATION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME HIS MORNING. I’M HERE TODAY REQUESTING SUPPORT ON BEHALF OF THE FAIRGROUNDS MANAGEMENT CORPORATION CURRENT USERS AND FUTURE USERS AND THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF ATTENDEES OF HUNDREDS OF EVENTS HELD AT THE FAIRGROUNDS ANNUALLY, AND TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A LONG TERM 20 YEAR MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT AND THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FAIRGROUNDS. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT ALL PROPOSED FUTURE DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE GUIDED BY THE GUIDING PRINCIPALS ADOPTED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. THEY ARE LISTED HERE TRANSPARENCY, INCLUSION, HERITAGE, COMMUNITY, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, MAXIMIZATION, OPEN SPACE AND RECREATION AND THE LONG HORIZON. POTENTIAL CATALYST, FMC IDENTIFIED THREE MAJOR PRIVATE ENTITIES THAT HAVE EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT AND LONG TERM INVESTMENT ON THE FAIRGROUNDS PROPERTY. THESE THREE ENTITIES WILL BRING FORWARD THE LONG TERM GROUND LEASES THAT WE NEED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ON THE FAIR GROUND PROPERTIES THAT WILL ALLOW US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH OTHER FMC SPONSORED PROJECTS, AS WELL. THE SCC PLAN WILL CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN AND MPROVE THE PUBLIC EVENT SPACE OR CULTURAL AND COMMUNITY GROUPS OF ALL TYPES ARE HELD. NEW PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS CAN BRING NEW ACTIVATION TO THE FAIRGROUNDS AND LONG TERM MARKET RATE GROUND LEASES THAT CAN BE SECURE TIES TO FUND FMC SPONSORED PROJECTS. WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS. THE FAIRGROUNDS IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND IT’S NOTED BY THE INCREASED NUMBER OF MOMENTERS, LICENSEES, AND COMMUNITY AND CULTURAL GROUPS INTERESTED IN BOOKING NUMEROUS EVENTS AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. FMC WANTS TO LISTEN TO ENGAGE EVERYONE’S IDEAS AS WE MOVE FORWARD. FMC IS OPEN TO NEW IDEAS AND WAYS TO ENHANCE OUR FAIRGROUNDS WHILE ALSO MAINTAINING OUR CORE FACILITIES AND GROUNDS FOR THE ANNUAL COUNTY FAIR. TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN. THE FAIRGROUNDS ENTERED SO FAR AS NOTED ON THE SLIDE SHOW THAT THE FIRST AND LAST PROJECT LISTED HERE ARE THOSE PROJECTS DESIGNATED AS FMC SPONSORED. EXCUSE ME, THE FIRST TWO. THE EQUEST WREN LIVESTOCK AND EDUCATIONAL CENTER AND INDOOR SPORTS TOURNAMENT FACILITIES. THE NEXT THREE LISTED HERE INCLUDE THE SAN JOSE GIANTS, USA CRICKET AND SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES WHO HAVE INITIATED DISCUSSIONS WITH FMC MANAGEMENT PROPOSING LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT AND INVESTMENT IN THE FAIRGROUNDS. TODAY, FMC SEEKS FLEXIBILITY AND THE ABILITY TO EVOLVE WITH THE EVOLUTION OF THE FAIRGROUNDS. FMC’S PRIMARY GOAL IS TO ESTABLISH A 20 YEAR OPERATING AGREEMENT WITH THE COUNTY, THUS ALLOWING FMC THE FOLLOWING. THEY WILL ALLOW FMC AND THE COUNTY TO ENTER INTO LONG TERM GROUND LEASES, INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR LONG TERM INCOME GENERATING OPPORTUNITIES. WITH NO FINANCIAL RISK TO FMC, OR TO THE COUNTY. IT WILL SPECIFICALLY ALLOW FMC TO NEGOTIATE LONG TERM GROUND LEASES OR IN SOME CASES, LONG TERM JOINT USE GROUND LEASES FOR DEVELOPMENT OF FACILITIES SUCH AS SPORTS FIELD COMPLEXES, STADIUMS AND RELATED FACILITIES. THIS WILL SUSTAIN IMPORTANT CORE USES SUCH S THE ANNUAL COUNTY FAIR, 4H AND FFA PROGRAMMING AND ULTIMATELY THE CONSTRUCTION F AN EQUEST RENE RIVERA STOCK CENTER. ALREADY ESTABLISHED BY THE COUNTY. AS IT CONSIDERS OPTIONS FOR THE FAIRGROUNDS PROPERTIES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, AND FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, THE PROCESS, THE COUNTY WOULD ALWAYS HAVE COMPLETE OVERSIGHT OF ALL PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AND THE FINAL DECISION ON ANY GROUND LEASE BEYOND ONE YEAR FOR THE FAIRGROUNDS. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>MAY A MAKE JUST A COUPLE OF COMMENTS AFTER THAT?>>SURE. WHAT I THOUGHT WE WOULD DO IS GET A BRIEF STAFF REPORT ON THAT ITEM 31 SINCE IT IS JOINED. IF WE CAN GET THAT BRIEF STAFF REPORT AND THEN I’LL RETURN TO YOU AND THEN WE HAVE MORE CARDS ARRIVING. FOLKS IF YOU’D LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE ITEM, PLEASE TURN IN A YELLOW CARD NOW. THEY’RE AT THE BACK OF THE CHAMBERS AND IT WILL HELP US MANAGE TIME SO WE WOULD HAVE AN IDEA OF HOW ANY FOLKS WANT TO SPEAK. MR. CANOF.>>DIRECTOR OF ASSET AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE BRINGING BEFORE YOU TODAY FORMAL ACTION BY THE BOARD TO CLOSE THE RFP PROCESS THAT WAS INITIATED SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND TO FORMALLY COMMUNICATE TO THE RESPONDENTS THAT THE BOARD IS REJECTING ALL PROPOSALS AND TERMINATING THAT RFP PROCESS.>>THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH ITEM 31.>>CORRECT.>>THANKS VERY MUCH.>>OK, SUPERVISE OR CHAVEZ BACK TO YOU.>>I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT A COUPLE OF THINGS FOR MY COLLEAGUES. ONE IS THAT THE BOARD OF FMC, WHICH IS ALL OF OUR APPOINTEES SUPPORTING THIS PLAN AND ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I LIFTED UP IS THAT ALL THE DEAL POINTS AND AGREEMENTS NEED TO BE APPROVED BY OUR BOARD, WHICH I THINK MAKE SURE THAT THE BOARD DOESN’T INHERIT ANY UNINTENDED RISK. THE DEAL POINTS WOULD BE VETTED BY OUR OWN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS AND WE WILL CRIB TO APPOINT THE FMC BOARD. OUR AGREEMENT CAN BE TERMINATED AT ANY TIME AND THE FAIRGROUNDS OPERATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE FUNDED BY SELF SUSTAINING ENTERPRISE FUND. THE FAIRGROUNDS WOULD LITERALLY BECOME THE NEW HOME OF OUR HISTORIC NEON SIGNS AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HISTORY OF SAN JOSE’S BEEN VERY NTERESTED IN A PLACE TO PLACE THESE SIGNS SO THIS WOULD BE ALSO ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE OTHER PARTNERS, SO THAT’S WHY I’M BRINGING THIS REFERRAL TO MY COLLEAGUES AND LOOKED FORWARD TO HEARING FROM THE PUBLIC AND GETTING YOUR THOUGHTS AND FEEDBACK.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I HAVE JUST A COUPLE OF QUESTION BEFORE I GO TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC. LET ME SEE IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD. NOT AT THIS TIME. YOU USED THE WORDS LONG TERM SEVERAL TIMES DURING YOUR PRESENTATION. LONG TERM IN MY EXPERIENCE MEANS DIFFERENT THINGS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE. I’M CURIOUS WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU IN TERMS OF YOUR PLANNING FOR THE FAIRGROUNDS.>>IN ESTABLISHING PARTNERSHIP WITH FUTURE DEVELOPERS, IN ORDER FOR THEM TO MAKE A WORTHY INVESTMENT WOULD REQUIRE ONG TERM INVESTS OF 25 YEARS AND BEYOND IN ORDER FOR THEM TO MAKE INVESTMENTS OF A STADIUM, OR SOCCER ACADEMY OR ANYTHING THAT WE’RE LOOKING AT, AND EACH ONE OF THOSE, WHAT WE WOULD DO IS SIT DOWN.>>I THINK I GOT WHAT I NEED. DON’T MEAN TO CUT YOU OFF, BUT I’VE GOT A LOT OF SPEAKERS. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ IN THE DOCUMENT THAT S THE SEVERAL, WE’VE GOT THE RECOMMENDED ACTION, WHICH IS SIMPLY THE REFERRAL TO ADMINISTRATION TO COME BACK TO US WITH A RECORD FOR WITH OPTIONS FOR CONSIDERATION RELATING TO THE FAIRGROUNDS AND FAIRGROUNDS MANAGEMENT CORPORATION AND THEN IN THE BODY OF THE REFERRAL, THOUGH THERE ARE IVE VERY CRISP EXPLICIT DIRECTIONS, SO I’M ASSUMING THAT THAT’S REALLY THAT YOU’RE INCORPORATING THOSE FIVE ITEMS AS DIRECTION TO THE ADMINISTRATION WHEN THEY COME BACK WOULD DO REFERRAL.>>THAT THOSE WOULD BE DEAL POINTS THAT WOULD BE INCORPORATED IN.>>OK. SO AS A PRACTICAL MATTER, WE’RE REALLY BEING ASKED TO TAKE ACTION NOT JUST ON THE REFERRAL TO THE ADMINISTRATION FOR A REPORT BACK, BUT WITH THOSE FIVE DEAL POINTS FOLDED IN, AND HEN IN DEAL POINT NUMBER FOUR, WHICH TALKS ABOUT DESIGNATING THE AREA AS PARK BUT THEN NOT BEING INCLUDED IN THE PARK CHARTER, THERE’S NO REFERENCE HERE TO TIME, BUT YOU SAID PERMANENT EARLIER, AND THAT CAUSED ME TO SIT UP STRAIGHT, BECAUSE IF THAT’S A SPECIFIC DIRECTION, I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE MEASURE TODAY. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE STAFF COME BACK AND TALK ABOUT HOW THAT ACREAGE MIGHT E SET ASIDE FOR EITHER OPEN SPACE, ACTIVE RECREATION, PARK TYPE USES, FOR SOME FORESEEABLE PERIOD OF TIME, THAT IS SOMETHING RATHER THAN PERMANENT, THAT WOULD BE MORE TO MY WAY OF THINKING AND I’LL EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT THAT AFTER WE HEAR FROM THE PUBLIC. I WANT TO LET YOU THINK ABOUT THAT BEFORE YOU RESPOND. PERMANENT IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN 20 YEARS, OBVIOUSLY ON OTHER PORES OF THE SITE AND I’LL EXPLAIN WHY THAT’S A MATTER OF CONCERN IN A MOMENT. COLLEAGUES, WE HAVE ABOUT I’D SAY 17, 18 CARDS. SHOULD WE ASK FOLKS TO LIMIT REMARKS TO A MINUTE EACH?>>WILL WEB DOING THAT THE WHOLE DAY IF WE HAVE EXCESSIVE NUMBER OF CARDS? IF SO, I THINK THAT’S FINE. IF WE’RE DOING IT JUST FOR THIS ITEM, THEN I WOULD HAVE A CONCERN ABOUT THAT.>>I’M HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE WHATEVER THE BOARD’S WILL IS ON THIS ITEM. IF YOU’D LIKE TO DO TWO MINUTES, WE CAN O TWO MINUTES.>>NO, I MEANT IF THAT’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO TODAY IS FINE.>>WE’VE BEENLE LOCATING TWO MINUTES FOR PEOPLE HERE ON THAT ITEM. THAT WOULD BE MY PLAN.>>LET’S GO AHEAD AND DO TWO MINUTES AND JUST ASK PEOPLE TO GET TO THE POINT. THANK YOU.>>ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE CARDS FROM FOLKS. IF YOU CAN LINE UP. IF THAT’S NOT.>>MR. PRESIDENT.>>YES.>>THANK YOU, I HAD A COMMENT ON THAT DISCUSSION THAT YOU WERE ASKING ABOUT THE TIMES TO DO THAT. I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT AS FAR AS MANAGING GOES, THE ONE TO TWO MINUTES, IF WE SET THE TWO MINUTES ON THIS, THAT DOES NOT SET A PRECEDENT FOR THIS AFTERNOON, IS THAT CORRECT?>>WE HAVE ALWAYS DONE THIS A BIT AD HOC AS WE SEE BOTH WHAT WE HAVE ON OUR AGENDA FOR THE DAYS. SOMETIMES WE HAVE LIGHTER AGENDAS, SOMETIMES HEAVIER. IT DEPENDS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE ISSUE. I KNOW ANY ISSUE ANY ONE OF US BRINGS TO THE BOARD IS IMPORTANT TO SOME SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE COMMUNITY, THAT’S WHY WE BRING T, SO IT’S NOT A QUOTE PRECEDENT, IF, YOU KNOW, WE HAD FOR THE SAKE OF DISCUSSION 300 PEOPLE THIS AFTERNOON AND SOMEBODY LEANED FORWARD AND SAID GIVEN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HERE AND GIVEN THE HARD STOP AT 4:00, COULD WE POLICE GIVE PEOPLE A MIGHT BE RATHER THAN TWO THAT WOULD CERTAINLY BE SOMETHING WE’D ENTERTAIN.>>ALL I WAS LOOKING FOR WAS THAT CLARIFICATION BY DOING TWO MINUTES ON THIS ITEM DOES NOT REQUIRE US TO DO TWO MINUTES IN THE AFTERNOON AND MY UNDERSTANDING IT DOES NOT.>>DOES NOT. I’LL LOOK TO THE COUNTY COUNCIL’S OFFICE WHO SERVES AT OUR PARLIAMENTARIAN.>>THIS NO, IT IS DECISION OF THE BOARD.>>NOW THAT WE’VE SORTED OUT HOW MUCH TIME YOU HAVE, THE ANSWER IS TWO MINUTES. IF YOU CAN DO IT IN LESS, WE’LL REMEMBER THE BREVITY IS THE SOUL OF WIT. PATTY MCNEIL, WELCOME. TO BE FOLLOWED BY MAYA SPAR ZA AND BRUCE SULLIVAN.>>I THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK BEFORE YOU TODAY AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THE PEOPLE OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY. I LIVE IN DISTRICT SEVEN AND I’M AN ASSOCIATE PASTOR AT A SMALL CHURCH IN WILL LOW GLENN. THE HISTORY OF THE FAIRGROUNDS REVEALS THE AWESOME VISION THAT SOME OF THE PAST SUPERVISORS AND THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTY HAVE HAD. IN 1939, THE COMMUNITY’S VISION CAME TOGETHER. ENJOY THE OUTDOORS, TO LEARN, TO MAKE MEMORIES. IN 1941, THE FIRST COUNTY YOU FAIR WAS HELD ON THE PROPERTY SO THE VISION CAME TO FRUITION. IN THE 1970’S, THE FAIRGROUNDS WAS THE HOT SPOT FOR ROCK CONCERTS. IN THE 1980’S, OVER A MILLION PEOPLE PASSED THROUGH HER GATES EACH YEAR. BY THE 1990’S, TIME TAKES THE TOLL ON THE FAIRGROUNDS. COMING INTO THE 21st CENTURY, THE TEMPTATION IS TO SEE THE FAIRGROUNDS AS JUST A BIG PIECE OF LAND. WE KIND OF LOOK AT IT SOMETIMES LIKE A JUNK DRAWER WHERE WE PUT THINGS, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO WITH THEM LIKE WE HAVE IN OUR KITCHEN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT, I’LL PUT IT THERE, AND THE STUFF HAS VALUE, IT’S JUST THAT THERE’S NO PLACE, WE DON’T HAVE A PLACE FOR IT, SO LET’S PUT IT THERE. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ REFERRAL 1031 ACTIVATION AND PRESERVATION OF THE FAIRGROUNDS, THIS SHOUTS TO ME VISION AND HOPE FOR COMMUNITY OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY. TODAY, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO STAND WITH SUPERVISORS OF THE PAST WHO UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS PROPERTY IS MORE THAN JUST A PIECE OF LAND. IT’S A PLACE WHERE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN CAN EXPERIENCE MAKING BOTH COMMUNITY AND MEMORIES. PLEASE KEEP IT FREE FROM HOMELESS SHELTERS, HOUSING AND ANYTHING THAT DOESN’T ALIGN WITH THE VISION.>>WE DO NEED NOTION TO STAY WITHIN THEIR TWO MINUTES PLEASE. WELCOME.>>THANK YOU. ACTUALLY I HAVE A HANDOUT. WHAT I’M HANDING OUT IS A LITTLE MAP OF THE CITY OF SAN OSE THAT SHOWS THE OVERCROWDED HOUSING BY CENSUS TRACT. YOU’LL SEE IN THIS MAP THERE’S AN EQUITY DIVIDE ALONG REALLY MONTEREY ROAD AS SORT THAT HAVE LINE FOR THE EQUITY DIVIDE WITHIN SAN JOSE. TODAY I’M HERE TO SUPPORT SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ’S RECOMMENDATION TO APPROVE NEGOTIATING A 20 YEAR MASTER AGREEMENT WITH THE FAIRGROUNDS MANAGEMENT CORPORATION AND TO DESIGNATE 55 ACRES OF THE FAIRGROUNDS AS A COUNTY PARK. I’D LIKE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THESE ACTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY AND ESPECIALLY THE IMMEDIATE COMMUNITY AROUND THE FAIRGROUNDS, WHICH I DON’T THINK HAS GOTTEN TALKED A LOT ABOUT. THESE NEIGHBORHOODS AROUND THE FAIRGROUNDS ARE AMONGST THE MOST DENSE, OVERCROWDED NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE ENTIRE CITY WITH OVER 20% OF THE HOUSEHOLDS EXPERIENCING OVERCROWDING, AND YOU’LL SEE THE BIG MAP. WE KIND OF TRIED TO ENLARGE IT ON THE OTHER SIDE BUT RIGHT ALONG MONTERREY AND TULLY, THE TWO BLACK SORT OF BOXES, THAT’S THE AREA AROUND THE FAIRGROUNDS, AND THIS DATA’S FROM 2010. AS THE CITY OF SAN JOSE LEARNED MOST RECENTLY THROUGH OUR DISPLACEMENT RESEARCH, IS THAT THESE NUMBERS HAVE ACTUALLY ONLY GOTTEN WORSE POST 2010. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS. SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THESE COMMUNITIES ARE IN DIRE NEED OF OPEN SPACE AND OF THE RECREATIONAL AMENITIES THAT THE FAIRGROUNDS CAN PROVIDE, ESPECIALLY AFFORDABLE RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES. SO IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING MUCH NEEDED INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS COMMUNITY, AND I ASK YOU ALL TO SUPPORT IT. THANK YOU. FOUR SECONDS LEFT.>>YOU’RE A PRO. ABLY DONE, THANK YOU. BRUCE SULLIVAN FOLLOWED BY ALICIA PENA.>>I’VE BEEN A RESIDENT OF DISTRICT SEVEN AND I LOVE ABOUT TWO MILES EAST OF THE FAIRGROUNDS. I’VE BEEN A RESIDENT THERE FOR 41 YEARS. I UNDERSTAND THE FAIRGROUNDS STARTED 1939 OR 1941 AND SO I’VE BEEN THERE ABOUT HALF THE TIME THAT THE FAIRGROUNDS HAS BEEN AROUND. SO I THOUGHT I’D COME DOWN AND SAY SOMETHING. WE’VE GOT LIKE MAYA SAID, A HIGH DENSITY SITUATION IN OUR DISTRICT. IF YOU LOOK AT DISTRICT SEVEN IN SAN JOSE’S GOT 10 DISTRICTS, IT’S PROBABLY THE SMALLEST GEOGRAPHICALLY, THEREFORE WE HAVE AN EQUAL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE IN EACH DISTRICT, BUT OURSELVES FOR SOME REASON IS SMALLER THAN LET’S SAY DISTRICT 10, DISTRICT EIGHT, EVERGREEN, SO YOU’VE GOT MORE OPEN SPACE N THOSE AREAS. THE FAIRGROUNDS GIVES US A LEGACY PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT’S BEEN AROUND FOR 80 YEARS AND THIS PROPOSAL WITH HIM KEEP IT THERE AT LEAST ANOTHER 20 YEARS, USED FOR RECREATION, USED FOR SPORTS ACTIVITY AND USED FOR FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT THAT WE REALLY NEED IN THAT PARTICULAR AREA. WE DON’T HAVE THESE COMMUNITY I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU CALL THEM, MAYBE ACTIVITY CENTERS FOR THE KIDS WHERE YOU HAVE A POOL, WHERE YOU HAVE A PLACE FOR THEM TO GO AND RECREATO. WE HAVE MORE GANG TYPE OF THINGS. WE’D LIKE TO SEE MORE USE OF THE PROPERTY AND THE KIDS WOULD BENEFIT FOR THAT ESPECIALLY 55-ACRES PROPOSED LAND ALONG THE CORRIDOR. THOSE HOUSES DOWN THERE REALLY ARE IN NEED OF SOME KIND OF PARK LAND. IT’S A IGHLY DENSE AREA THAT REALLY NEEDS PARK LAND ND THE COUNTY TO ME HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PROVIDER OF GOOD PARK LAND. THANK YOU.>>THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS.>>AND NEXT SPEAKER. I APOLOGIZE, I’M STRUGGLING WITH YOUR HANDWRITING BUT AT LEAST I GOT THE PENA PART.>>I’M THE COMMUNITY RELEASES DIRECTOR WITH MCKINLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT HERE SPEAKING ON ABOVE OF OUR SUPERINTENDENT JUAN CRUZ. HE WOULD LIKE TO OFFER THE DISTRICT SUPPORT TO SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ TO DESIGNATE 55 ACRES OF THE FAIR GROUND AS COUNTY PARK AND WORK WITH THE COLLABORATION OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT TO — OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHARES BOUNDARIES WITH THE FAIR GROUND PROPERTY AND THERE MAY BE OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE COULD LEVERAGE RESOURCES TO MAKE OPEN SPACE ACCESSIBLE TO OUR COMMUNITY. THERE ARE CONCERNS NEIGHBORS HAVE HAD WITH A SECTION OF THAT SHARED BOUNDARY THAT THROUGH THIS PROPOSAL MAY GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS. THE DISTRICT IS ALSO VERY MUCH OPPOSED TO BUILDING TRANSITIONAL HOUSING FACILITIES AT FAIRGROUNDS AND URGE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO EXPLORE ALTERNATE LOCATIONS WHICH ARE NOT NEXT TO THE SCHOOL WHICH SERVES 6050 STUDENTS GRADES KINDER GARDEN TO SIXTH GRADE SERVING THE YOUNGEST IN OUR COMMUNITY. OUR COMMITMENT TO STUDENTS, STAFF AND COMMUNITY IS TO PROVIDE A SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT PREPARES CHILDREN FOR SUCCESS. CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF FIVE AND 12 WALK WITH THEIR PARENTS AND THE GUARDIANS TO SCHOOL ALONE OR IN GROUPS TO AND FROM SCHOOL. IF A TRANSITIONAL HOUSING FACILITY WAS BUILT, IT WOULD PLACE THOSE RECEIVING SERVICES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND INTRODUCE A SAFETY ISSUE THAT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING THIS COLLABORATION AND WE ARE IN SUPPORT OF SUPERVISOR CONTINUEDY CHAVEZ’S PROPOSED USE OF THE FAIRGROUNDS. SIX SEARLY, SUPERINTENDENT RON CRUZ.>>TIMOTHY BROWN TO BE FOLLOWED BY TONY KANELL LA TO BE FOLLOWED BY HANS STOWN FELT.>>THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SPEAK TODAY ON THIS ITEM. I’M TIMOTHY BROWN, UNION REPRESENTATIVE FROM SCIU, UNITED SERVICE WORKERS WEST ON BEHALF OF WORKERS THAT WORK AT SANTA CLARA FAIRGROUNDS. WE’VE HAD A UNION CONTRACT THERE FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS THAT PROVIDES GOOD WAGES, FAMILY HEALTH CARE FULLY FUNDED BY THE EMPLOYER FMC, SO WE USUALLY YOU TODAY TO ADOPT THIS PROPOSAL AND TO EXTEND THE CONTRACT SO WE CAN PROTECT OUR FUTURE OF OUR FOR OUR FAMILIES AND THEIR CHILDREN AND WE HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMPANY WITH THE FMC AND WE URGE YOU TO VOTE TO SUPPORT THE EXTENSION OF THEIR CONTRACT. THAT WILL CREATE A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL OF US WORKING THERE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER. COME ON UP, PLEASE. MR. CAN ELLA.>>GOOD MORNING, SUPERVISORS. I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR FAIRGROUNDS FOR 30 YEARS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK. I KNOW IT’S NOT EASY TO HANDLE A NICE COUNTY, SANTA CLARA COUNTY IS HUGE, IT’S BEAUTIFUL, AND I JUST WANT TO SAY I LIKE MY JOB. I’D LIKE TO KEEP WORKING AND BRING COMMUNITY TOGETHER, ALL KINDS OF CULTURES COME TO THE FAIRGROUNDS TO ENJOY, AND I KNOW WE STRUGGLE FAIRGROUNDS BECAUSE FIGHTING AND PEOPLE GO THERE AND DON’T FEEL SAFE, BUT THANK YOU FOR HARD WORK, TRY TO KEEP THIS FAIRGROUNDS GOING AND I WOULD LIKE YOU GUYS TO KEEP THE CONTRACT WITH THE FAIRGROUNDS. IT’S OPEN FOR THE PUBLIC, YOU KNOW, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS TODAY. THANK YOU FOR COMING. HANS STONE FELT FOLLOWED BY JANUARY HIGGINS. THEN SAMAR MAYKA.>>I’VE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH THE FAIRGROUNDS FOR ABOUT 45 YEARS, STARTED WITH MY CHILDREN. I GOT INTERESTED IN YOUTH EDUCATION ABOUT 20 YEARS OR SO AGO, MY WIFE GOT ON TO THE FMC BOARD AND I BECAME AWARE OF THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A PROPERTY HERE THAT IS AN ICONIC PROPERTY. I THINK THEY’VE CALLED IT A IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE POLISHED, BUT THE ONLY WAY YOU’RE GOING TO ATTRACT ANY KIND OF PHILANTHROPY AND THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE WILLING TO PUT IN TIME, ENERGY AND MONEY INTO IMPROVING THESE FACILITIES FOR THE PUBLIC, AND TO THAT END, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE DO FINALLY GIVE A 20 YEAR LEASE TO FMC. FRANKLY, I PREFER A PERMANENT LEASE, BECAUSE I THINK THIS IS A PROPERTY THAT CAN BECOME REPRESENTATIVE OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY TO THE ENTIRE WORLD. WE CAN DEVELOP IT INTO OMETHING LIKE WE HAVE LAND WHERE DISNEY IS PUT IN, SOMETHING THAT DRAWS PEOPLE. I ALSO WANT TO SEE THAT WE PAY ATTENTION TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. I GREW UP AS A CHILD IN SAN FRANCISCO. I WENT TO STEIN HEART, I WENT TO T YOUNG. I WENT TO ALL THE MUSEUMS AND THE PARKS, AND I THINK WE HAVE A PROPERTY HERE THAT COULD BE TURNED INTO SOMETHING THAT WILL GIVE US A SHINE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WORLD, BUT THE 20 YEAR LEASE IS KEY TO ATTRACTING PHILANTHROPISTS AND THEIR FUNDING, AND THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. WE NEED TO STOP CONCENTRATING ON TRYING TO TURN EVERYTHING INTO MORE MONEY AND MORE MONEY GENERATING. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE OTHER SIDE OF HUMAN LIFE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS. JAN HIGGINS.>>GOOD MORNING BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. IN TURN U.S.A. CRICKET IS LICENSED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CRICKET COUNCIL WHICH IS THE GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GOVERNORRANCE OF THE SPORT AROUND THE WORLD. WITH MORE THAN 1.5 BILLION FANS AROUND THE WORLD, IT IS THE SECOND BIGGEST SPORT IN THE WORLD AND INCREASINGLY ATTRACTING YOUNGER AUDIENCES, WOMEN, GIRLS AND FAMILIES THROUGH ITS SHORT FORM PRODUCT 2020. FOR THE USA TO BECOME A GLOBAL FORCE IN WORD CRICKET, THAT IS BUILT ON THE HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE PLAYING AND CONSUMING CRICKET IN THE U.S.A. NOWHERE IS MORE POPULAR THAN IN THIS COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA WHERE THERE ARE MORE THAN 200,001st AND SECOND GENERATION IMMIGRANTS WHO HAVE A DEEP PASSION AND AFFINITY FOR WATCHING AND PLAYING THE SPORT. UNDER THE MANAGEMENT PROPOSAL, U.S.A. CRICKET AND ITS COMMERCIAL PARTNER PLAN TO WORLD CLASS VENUE AT THE FAIRGROUNDS WHICH WOULD BE CAPABLE OF HOSTING REGULAR DOMESTIC CRICKET MATCHES UNDER A NEW ROFESSIONAL LEAGUE THAT WOULD TAKE PLACE IN 2021 AS WELL AS HOSTING INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION AND GLOBAL EVENTS. THE U.S.A. CRICKET ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE AND HIGH PERFORMANCE CENTER AND TRAINING FASHION SILT WOULD PROVIDE THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WITH THE CRICKET CONTENT THAT WE KNOW THEY WILL CONSUME. THE FACILITIES THAT WE KNOW THAT THEY WOULD USE AND THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SANTA CLARA COUNTY TO DEVELOP ITSELF AS A CENTRAL FOCAL POINT FOR THE SPORT IN THIS COUNTRY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.>>THANK YOU. LET ME SAY THANK YOU FOR THE RECORD TO IAN HIGGINS. AND I BELIEVE IT’S SAMAR MATA.>>I’M A RESIDENT OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS. I STARTED A SMALL COMPANY ABOUT 16 YEARS BACK BROADCASTING THE SPORT OF CRICKET AT THE U.S.A. AT THAT IME, E HAD ABOUT 15,000 CUSTOMERS, ABOUT 10,000 CUSTOMERS ROM THE SANTA CLARA AREA. TODAY WE HAVE ABOUT 4 MILLION CUSTOMERS WITH ABOUT 450,000 CUSTOMERS FROM JUST THE BAY AREA AND WE’VE SEEN THE SPORT GROW BY LEAPS AND BOUNCED IN THE BAY AREA OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS. THE BIGGER ISSUE IS THAT KIDS WHO PLAY THE SPORT DON’T HAVE A LOCATION TO PLAY PROFESSIONALLY, A TEAM THAT WANTS TO PLAY AT A HIGH LEVEL CANNOT RESIDE IN THE BAY AREA BECAUSE THERE’S NO GROUNDS OR FACILITIES. WHAT WE’VE STARTED IS AN ORGANIZATION CALLED AMERICAN CRICKET ENTERPRISES THAT’S FULLY FUNDED THAT WOULD LIKE TO START A FACILITY AT THE GAY GROUNDS BUILT MORE LIKE A COMMUNITY AMPHITHEATER SO IT CAN MESH WELL WITH THE COUNTY FAIR. IT’S MEANT TO BE A WORLD CLASS FACILITY AND WE HOPE THIS WILL BE THE CENTER FOR CRICKET IN THE U.S.A. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER. WELCOME.>>SORRY FOR THE BAD HANDWRITING>>AT LEAST I DIDN’T CALL YOU JAN WHEN YOUR NAME IS IAN. THERE YOU GO. WELCOME SIR.>>I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH COACHING YOUNGSTERS IN CRICKET FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS. I’VE ALWAYS FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO FIND A FACILITY TO COACH KIDS, SCHOOL KIDS, KIDS ARE GROWING UP AND NOW WITH THE DIRECTION OF U.S.A. CRICKET COMING IN ACTIVELY AND IS AND THE PROPOSAL THAT JOINTLY WORKING WITH SANTA CLARA COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS THEY ARE SAYING THAT THEY WOULD DEVELOP A FACILITY FOR CRICKET IS WHAT EXCITED ME AND BROUGHT ME TO THIS FORUM BECAUSE I HAVE CLOSE TO 1,000 KIDS ALL OVER THE BAY AREA REALLY LOOKING FOR FACILITIES TO PLAY EVERY WEEKEND. THESE ARE SCHOOL GOING KIDS AND WE JUST TRY TO PLAY WHEREVER WE CAN WHENEVER WE CAN GET THE SPACE AND TIME. THIS FACILITY WILL GO A LONG WAY DEVELOPING THIS GAME AT THE GRASS ROOT LEVEL AND ENGAGE A LOT MORE STUDENTS COMING IN FROM THESE SCHOOLS. I REALLY URGE THE BOARD AND THE PRESIDENT TO CONSIDER THE PROPOSAL SERIOUSLY. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. I BELIEVE OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS CASEY HILL TO BE FOLLOWED BY IAN ANDERSON AND MAURICIO MEJIA. THERE IS A MICROPHONE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, I PROMISE.>>K. THERE IT IS. GOOD AFTERNOON, SUPERVISORS, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK WITH YOU BRIEFLY IN SUPPORT OF THIS PROPOSAL. I’M THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF VEGGIE LUTION, FARM THAT STEWARDED SIX ACRES FOR OVER A DECADE. WE’VE HAD THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE WITH THOUSANDS OF LOCAL RESIDENTS MANY OF WHO ARE LOW INCOME WORKING IMMIGRANTS. I’M HERE TO RAISE UP HOW CRITICAL IT IS AMIDST AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR — SHOULD PRIORITIZE OPEN SPACES THAT ARE CREATIVE WELCOMING ND EASILY ACCESSIBLE TO FAMILIES AT VERY LOW TO NO COST. INVESTMENT IN GREEN SPACES CREATES A SENSE OF SAFETY, OWNERSHIP AND BELONG IN IN NEIGHBORHOODS. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH THAT AS MORE AND MORE DEVELOPMENT COMES TO SAN JOSE IT IS ESSENTIAL TO PERMANENTLY PRESERVE LARGE PUBLIC OPEN SPACES FOR RESIDENTS TO ENJOY FOR COMMUNITY GATHERING AND NATURE. NEW HOUSING REQUIRES THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED PARKS. STUDIES SHOW THAT NEW GREEN SPACE INITIATIVES ARE PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE WHEN THEY MEET ADDITIONAL NEEDS. AS WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATED, PARKING ARE BEST SERVING MULTIPLE COMMUNITY NEEDS AS HUBS FOR COMMUNITY EVENTS, PROVIDING SOCIAL SERVICES AND SITES FOR INNOVATIVE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY. OUR FOOD CART ADVOCACY PROM WAS IN FACT DREAMED UP INSIDE A CITY PARK. WHEN CONSIDERING THE ACTIVATION OF A DESIGNATED 55 ACRES OF THE FAIRGROUNDS AS COUNTY PORK, WE USUALLY YOU AND THE FAIRGROUNDS MANAGEMENT CORPORATION TO BE BOLD, INNOVATIVE AND EQUITABLE, CENTERING THE VOICE OF COMMUNITY RESIDENTS AND NONPROFIT PARTNERS. THANK YOU.>>THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE.>>GOOD MORNING. I’M IAN ANDERSON, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES. WE WERE REFERENCED AS A POTENTIAL PARTNER IN THE SOCCER COMPLEX AT THE FAIRGROUNDS, AND WE’RE HERE TO SUPPORT THE FMC EXTENSION AS ON ORGANIZATION, ONE OF OUR TOP STRATEGIC PRIORITIES IS TO SUPPORT INCREASED ACCESS TO ATHLETIC RECREATIONAL FEEDS IN THE COMMUNITY. I’M SURE YOU ALL ARE AWARE THAT THERE’S A CONSTANT SHORTAGE OF THOSE FIELDS HERE IN THE REGION, AND WE’RE COMMITTED TO ADDRESSING THAT AND WE’RE LOOKING OR WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT NUMEROUS LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY FOR US TO POTENTIALLY DO THAT, AND FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, THE FAIRGROUNDS IS REALLY PROVIDES AN IDEAL LOCATION FOR FIELDS FOR THE COMMUNITY. IT’S ACCESSIBLE TO THE VARIOUS FOLKS WHO PLAY AND IT’S ALSO PROXIMATE TO WHERE WE THE SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES PLAY IN THE COUNTY, SO WE’D JUST LIKE TO LEND OUR SUPPORT TO THE INITIATIVE AND THE EXTENSION FOR THE FMC. THANK YOU.>>THANKS VERY MUCH. NEXT SPEAKER, WHO I BELIEVE IS MAURICIO MEJIA TO BE FOLLOWED BY DAN OR RUM, SCOTT LARGENT, BARBARA SUEETTE AND IS SERENA DR A.>>GOOD MORNING. I’M HERE IN SUPPORT OF TWO THINGS, I HAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF NOTES BUT I’M JUST GOING TO SPEAK FROM HE HEART. COUNTY SUPERVISOR CINDY CHAVEZ IN SUPPORT OF YOUR PROPOSAL. I’M IN SUPPORT OF THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. I HAD A MEETING WITH HIM AND SHARED HIS VISION THAT REALLY EXCITED ME AND TURNED THE LEAF FOR ME TO BRING AND TO PUT THE WORD OUT TO ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPE OF COUNTER PROMOTERS AND EVENT PROMOTERS ACROSS THE U.S. MY BACKGROUND IS CONCERT PROMOTIONS IN SAN JOSE. WE HAD A VISIT FROM THE LARGEST FESTIVAL PROMOTERS IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY PRODUCE COACHELLE FESTIVAL. THEY NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE FAIRGROUNDS. NEVER KNEW THEY DID EVENTS UP NORTH IN NAPA, SAN FRANCISCO, OAKLAND BUT NEVER KNEW THIS LAND EXISTED. YESTERDAY, THEY LEFT SO EXCITED THAT THEIR TEXT MESSAGE AS SOON AS THEY LANDED BACK IN LOS ANGELES WAS THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY, THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING BE US TO THE EXECUTIVE TEAM WITH THE VISION THAT THE EXECUTIVE TEAM SHARED AND WHERE THEY’RE LOOKING AT IN THE FUTURE, THIS PROPOSAL MAKES SENSE BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE INVEST, PRIVATE SUPER PRIZE’S INVEST, IT TAKES A LOT OF MONEY, ENERGY AND RESOURCES. WE’RE EXCITED. WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS, HOPE THIS MOVES FORWARD AND NEXT YEAR WE CAN KICK OFF THE FIRST FESTIVAL WHICH WE’VE NAMED VALLEY OF THE HEARTS MUSIC FESTIVAL WHICH WOULD EMBRACE THE SANTA CLARA VALLEY AND IT’S I HISTORY. WE’RE EIGHT GLOBAL DESTINATION. WE’RE IN A MELTING POT AND THERE’S NO REASON WHY SANTA CLARA COUNTY SAN JOSE OR THE SILICON VALLEY DOES NOT HAVE ITS OWN MUSIC FESTIVAL THAT CAN EMBRACE ALL.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>GOOD MORNING, GOOD SEEING YOU ALL. I’M DAN OTHER ARE A, PRESIDENT OF THE SAN JOSE GIANTS AND SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF THE APPROVING THE FMC EXTENSION. I’M WITH THE GIANTS. WE LIVE AND WORK IN DISTRICT SEVEN, AND WE’RE ALL ABOUT FUN AFFORDABLE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT AND I’VE ALWAYS FELT LIKE THE FAIRGROUNDS HAS A SIMILAR VISION AND MISSION. IT’S A VERY IMPORTANT THING FORTRESS–FORTRESS DENTS OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY TO HAVE OPTIONS FOR THAT. THE MAIN REASON I’M IN FAVOR OF THIS STEPPING, FMC REALLY NEEDS A RUNWAY TO PUT THEIR VISION INTO PLACE BUT ALSO TO GIVE THEM TIME TO DO IT ACCURATELY AND APPROPRIATELY FOR THE COUNTY. THE LONGER EXTENSION IS APPROPRIATE, AND CAN HELP DRIVE HOPEFULLY THE RIGHT DECISIONS TO MAKE THIS NOT JUST A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH BUT ACTUALLY A DIAMOND IN DISTRICT SEVEN. IT’S A VERY, VERY LOW INCOME DISTRICT. WE’VE TRIED TO UPPORT THAT AS MUCH AS WE CAN AS THE SAN JOSE GIANTS. EVERY YEAR, WE GIVE OVER 50,000 TICKETS OUT TO FAMILIES FREE OF CHARGE, ND I THINK THAT THE VISION THAT FMC IS SHOWING IS TO ALSO PROVIDE THAT KIND OF FUN AFFORDABLE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE CITIZENS F THIS COUNTY. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. SCOTT LARGENT, YOU’RE UP NEXT, SIR.>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SCOTT LARGENT. I WENT TO THE LAST TIME I WAS OUT AT THE FAIRGROUNDS WAS FOR THE HOMELESS SUMMIT THAT SUPERVISOR CORTESE PUT ON. I MET A GENTLEMAN OUT THERE, AND I GO TO THESE EVENTS JUST TO KIND OF INTERACT WITH OTHER PEOPLE THAT WERE HOMELESS OR STRUGGLING IN OUR COMMUNITY. THIS MAN THAT I MET OUT THERE, REALLY NICE, NICE OLD TIMER, DISABLED, HE ACTUALLY WAS IN THE NAVY, SOME TYPE OF WAR VET, HE RECEIVED A MUNICIPAL CODE VIALS OUT OF THE CITY OF SAN JOSE FOR LIVING IN HIS MOTOR HOME, SO RATHER THAN CHALKING THE TIRES AND GIVING A 72 HOUR NOTICE. THE SHADY ANTI DEMOCRATIC CITY OF SAN JOSE HAS FIGURED OUT DIFFERENT WAYS TO ABSOLUTELY.>>PEOPLE. THIS MAN RIGHT NOW HAD TO PUT BAIL DOWN ON THIS. OK? SO I’M GOING TO EMAIL YOU GUYS THIS GUY’S INFORMATION, SO MAYBE YOU CAN ULL SOME STRINGS, BUMP HIM UP TO THE I.D.O. AND GET HIM A REAL OPPORTUNITY. LET’S NOT PUSH HIM OFF TO THE SIDE, LET HIM TAKE HIS MOTOR HOME AND LIVE IN THE PARK. I DON’T THINK THAT’S ACCEPTABLE RIGHT HERE. THIS IS SHOCKING RIGHT HERE. THERE’S A LETTER THAT WAS INCLUDED. I’M SURE THE GENTLEMAN OUT THERE TALKED TO YOU, DAVE, GAVE YOU THIS LETTER THAT HE WROTE TO KINKY SAM LA CARD DOUGH RIGHT HERE. HE’S DISABLED, LIVING IN A MOTOR HOME AND NO WAY SHOULD WEB CHARGING HIM MONEY LIKE THIS. THE REASON I CAME UP HERE TO TALK ABOUT THIS STUFF, WE HAVE FAIRGROUNDS THAT HAS PLENTY OF PROPERTY. WHAT HAPPENS TO TRIAGING THE MENTALLY ILL AND HOMELESS, FIGURE OUT PEOPLE THAT CAN PASS DRUG TESTS. VET THEM OUT. I CAN GIVE YOU A LIST OF 200 PEOPLE THAT WILL PASS DRUG TESTS, THEY’RE LIVING IN HEIR CAR AND MOTOR HOMES, YOU CAN PUT THEM OUT THERE AND HOUSE THEM. I AM VETTING THEM MYSELF. YOU ARE NOT. THIS IS SAD RIGHT HERE. YOU SHOULD STAND UP FOR THIS MAN. HE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS. THANK YOU.>>BARBARA SUEETTE AND SERENA.>>HI, GOOD MORNING, THANK YOU FOR GIVING US AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO YOU TODAY. MY NAME’S BARBARA SUEETTE, A LIFETIME RESIDENT OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY AND I’VE RAISED MY CHILDREN HERE. I’M ALSO THE CURRENT COUNTY COUNCIL PRESIDENT FOR 4H, AND I KNOW THAT A LOT OF YOUTH TODAY WOULD LIKE TO BE OUT HERE IN SUPPORT OF THIS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY SCHOOL BECKONS AND SO THAT’S WHERE THEY ARE. I WILL SAY ON BEHALF OF 4H, 4H IS AN INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT. IT CROSSES ALL SECTORS OF LIFE. YOU SEE AT FAIR WITH THE LIVESTOCK, BUT WE ALSO HAVE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, HEALTH AND LEISURE WHERE YOUTH LEARN TO BE INVOLVED IN THEIR COMMUNITY AND HELP IMPROVE THEIR COMMUNITY. THE VISION THAT FMC HAS IS FABULOUS. WE’RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT, NOT ONLY TO COME AND SHOWCASE OUR ANIMALS ONCE A YEAR AND OUR EXHIBITS, BUT ALSO TO BE A PART OF A LARGER COMMUNITY THAT THIS PROPERTY CAN OFFER AND BE INVOLVED IN MANY MORE WAYS THAN JUST COMING HERE ONE WEEK. OUR 4H WORLD DOES WORK FOR A YEAR TO BRING THEIR PROJECTS EACH YEAR TO THE FAIR AND SO NOT ONLY WILL THEY GET A CHANCE TO SHINE THERE, BUT WILL GET A CHANCE TO BE MORE INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNITIES AND PEOPLE THAT ARE SPEAKING TODAY AND CROSS ALL THOSE BORDERS, TOO. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LET’S ASK OUR LAST SPEAKER TO COME FORWARD AND HELP ME WITH HER PROPER NAME AND PROPER PRONUNCIATION AND PROPER READING.>>YOU DID GREAT WITH THE NAME. HELLO AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE TODAY. MY NAME IS ARENA DECOR ARE A, THE CE OX OF PAINT BALL INTERNATIONAL. ALONG WITH MY HUSBAND, MICHAEL, WE BUILT AND HAVE RUN THE PAINT BALL AND LASER TAG FAMILY REX REACTIONAL FACILITY OPERATING AT THE FAIRGROUNDS AND HAS BEEN THERE SINCE 2003, 17 YEARS. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO SPEAK FOR A FEW REASONS. FIRST I KNOW FMC HAS BEEN WORKING HARD TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE OVERALL OPERATIONS OF THE PROPERTY AND MOVING FORWARD WITH THE CONCEPT AND PLANS FOR LONG ERM VISION THAT FULFILLS THE NEEDS AND ADDRESSES THE DESIRES OF THIS COMMUNITY. AS AN EXISTING ANCHOR TENANT SERVING FAMILIES, COMPANIES AND THE YOUTH, WE ARE THE ONLY TENANT CURRENTLY FOLLOWING THE MANDATE OF THE BOARD. WE’RE SERVING THOSE FAMILIES AND WE BRING IN ABOUT 50,000 PEOPLE ANNUALLY, ABOUT A THOUSAND TO 1200 A WEEK TO THE FAIRGROUNDS SO WE’D LIKE TO BE PART OF THE CONVERSATION WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY RECREATION MOVING FORWARD AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW US, BECAUSE YOU MUSIC BEFORE YOUR TIME ON THE BOARD OR WEREN’T INVOLVED IN THE THREE PREVIOUS RFP’S, WE DO HAVE A LONG TERM VISION AND A DEVELOPMENT PLAN TO BUILD A FAMILY LEGS REACTIONAL OUTDOOR ADVENTURE PARK AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. WE HAVE PROVIDED THIS N A COMPREHENSIVE WAY TO THE COUNTY IN THE PAST AND PROVIDING A SHORT OVERVIEW TODAY FOR ALL OF YOU. DURING THE LAST ATTEMPT IN 2017, OUR FACILITY WAS PART OF THE FINAL PRESENTATION SUBMITTED. OUR CONCEPT FOR FAMILY ADVENTURE PARK ALONG WITH PART OF THEIR FINAL VISION WAS PART OF THE FINAL SUBMISSION. SINCE MUCH OF TODAY’S PRESENTATION INCLUDES SOME OF THOSE SAME PLAYERS, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE INFORMATIVE TO PROVIDE EVERYONE HERE WITH THE KEY PART OF OUR VISION AND FINANCIAL LETTERS THAT WE PROVIDED THAT SHOWS WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO BUILT SOMETHING LIKE THIS. WE ARE IN SUPPORT OF THE BOARD MOVING FORWARD WITH THE 20 YEAR MANAGEMENT PLAN AND AGREEMENT AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO OUR VISION ULTIMATELY COMING TO LIFE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>THANK YOU. LET ME JUST CONFIRM ITH THE CLERK I BELIEVE THAT WAS THE LAST OF OUR PUBLIC SPEAKERS. YES, IT WAS. THAT BRINGS THE MATTER BACK BEFORE THE BOARD. WE HAVE TWO ITEMS BEFORE US, 10 AND 31. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ON SUPERVISOR ASSERMAN.>>THANK YOU. GOOD MORNING. YES, I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT EARLIER, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT LONG TERM AGREEMENTS, AND IT WAS POINTED OUT THAT THEY PROVIDE CERTAINTY TO LESSEES TO THEY AN MAKE CAPITAL INVESTMENTS. IT DOESN’T RELATE TO THE FAIRGROUNDS, JUST AN ASIDE FROM ME. I AGREE ENTIRELY LONG TERM LEASES AND AGREEMENTS GIVE CERTAINTY TO PEOPLE TO MAKE INVESTMENTS. I DO HAVE REQUEST FOR INFORMATION TO COME BACK REGARDING THIS REFERRAL. FIRST I WANT TO SAY I’VE BEEN HERE NINE YEARS, MY CHIEF OF STAFF 30 YEARS. HE JOKED WITH ME ABOUT TWO OR THREE PRIOR FAIRGROUNDS MASTER PLANS HAVING COME AND GONE AND BEEN SHELVED. I THINK HIS ONE’S GOT LEGS. I THINK SOMETHING’S GOING TO BECOME OF THIS ONE AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING A PART OF THE PROS AS WE GO THROUGH AND GET THERE. I THINK THERE’S GOING TO BE A CHANGE COMING, BECAUSE OF THIS REFERRAL. I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT COUNTY COUNCIL AND ADMINISTRATION COME BACK WITH THE LONG TERM IMPLICATIONS OF DESIGNATING THE 55 ACRES AS PARK LAND INCLUDING THE ESTIMATED COST OF DEVELOPING, OPERATING AND MAINTAINING THE LAND. THESE MAY ALL THREE ITEMS MAY BE THINGS SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ THAT YOU WERE ALREADY EXPECTING WOULD COME BACK. I JUST WANTED SPECIFICITY OF IT. NUMBER TWO, I’D LIKE TO BETTER UNDERSTAND FMC’S SCOPE OF AUTHORITY AND CHECKS AND BALANCES OVER THE NEXT 0 YEARS. NUMBER THREE, I’D LIKE AN OFF AGENDA REPORT BACK TO THE BOARD ABOUT THE 500 UNITS OF PERMANENT AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT THE LEDGE FILE STATES CURRENTLY EXIST AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. THAT WAS DONE BEFORE MY TIME. I DON’T HAVE DETAILS OF THAT AND THE INFORMATION THAT WE’VE RECEIVED DOESN’T QUITE MESH WITH THAT INFORMATION, SO I’D LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW THOSE UNITS WERE CALCULATED. THANK YOU.>>SUPERVISOR CORTESE.>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS FORWARD, SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ. AND I, TOO, I’M ENCOURAGED, I THINK LIKE SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN IS IN TERMS OF US STAYING THE COURSE THIS TIME AND PART OF IT IS BECAUSE SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, YOU HAVE INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE THE VISION TO THE BOARD ALREADY ADOPTED IN THE BOARD COMPOSITION ISN’T 100% THE SAME, SO IT’S JUST ENCOURAGING TO ME THAT IF THIS PASSES TODAY WE’VE GOT CONTINUITY GOING N TERMS OF MAINTAINING THE VISION THAT WAS SET FORTH FOR THIS PROPERTY. I THINK THAT WAS NE OF THE BIG THINGS THAT HAS SORT OF HIS FLIP-FLOPPED OR SEESAWED A LOT IN THE PAST, SHOULD IT BE DEVELOPED, SHOULD IT BE HOUSING, SHOULD IT BE PARK LAND, SHOULD IT BE WHATEVER. I REMAIN VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THE ELEMENTS, I FOR ONE WILL SEE IF EVERYONE AGREES, BUT FEEL VERY, VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THE VISION THAT’S BEEN SET FORTH IN OUR PACKETS TODAY AND EXPLAINED EARLIER AT THE OUTSET. MY QUESTION, QUESTION NUMBER ONE IS AND I PREANYWAYS IT BY SAYING I’M FAVORABLE TOWARD SOME SORT OF A PARK LAND DEDICATION OR PROCESS THAT WOULD INVOLVE PRESERVATION IN THE WAY THAT MIGHT INVOLVE AN ACTUAL GRANT OF PROPERTY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. SO I’M VERY COMFORTABLE TODAY WITH AT LEAST SENDING THAT ISSUE OUT FOR OPTIONS TO COME BACK. I WANTED TO ASK YOU, WHEN I LOOK AT THE WAY YOU’VE SORT OF DIVIDED UP THE PROPERTY IN TERMS OF HOW YOU WOULD APPROACH IT AT THIS POINT, I UNDERSTAND THAT’S NOT SET IN STONE, IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT WE’VE ADOPTED YET. CAN YOU SPEAK YET TO WHERE YOU MIGHT DESIGNATE OR RECOMMEND DESIGNATING RECOMMEND TO US DESIGNATING SUCH AN EXPANSE OF PARK LAND IN THE OVERALL MAP? I’M TALKING ABOUT THE MAP WHERE YOU AVES FOUR OR FIVE DIFFERENT SORT OF I WON’T CAL CALL THEM PARCELIZATIONS, BUT SECTIONS TO THE FAIRGROUNDS THAT SOME MIGHT REMAIN FOR EXAMPLE COUNTY FAIR USE, OTHERS, YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. BUT THE REASON I ASK IT IS BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE MULTIPLE, THERE’S MORE THAN ONE OF THOSE PARCELS OR SECTIONS OR AREAS THAT WOULD INVOLVE OPEN SPACE MUCH LIKE YOU WOULD SEE IN A PARK. SO DO YOU HAVE THOUGHTS ON THAT YET OR IS IT JUST SOMETHING, IT’S FINE WITH ME IF IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE TO GIVE THOUGHT TO OR WANT TO WORK TOGETHER WITH THE ADMINISTRATION ON BEFORE IT COMES BACK, BUT IF YOU HAVE GIVEN IT SOME THOUGHT, I’D BE INTERESTED IN HEARING WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THAT.>>BOARD MEMBER CORTESE, THE MAP THAT I’VE PROVIDED TO YOU WAS TO ALLOW US TO GET A BETTER CONCEPTIONUAL AND ALLOW US TO USE IT AS A PLANNING MECHANISM, BUT THERE’S BEEN NO SET DESIGNATION OF THE 55 ACRES AT THIS POINT AND I WOULD BE WORKING WITH STAFF TO BRING SOMETHING BACK TO THE BOARD.>>I DON’T WANT TO PUT WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH BUT WOULD THE ENERAL IDEA IN YOUR MIND, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU HAD THESE FOUR AREAS DESIGNATED FOR SOME KIND OF PURPOSE, METHODICAL PURPOSE GOING FORWARD, TO TRY TO INSERT THIS PARK LAND OPTION IN AND CREATE AN PTION FOR PLANNING AREAS THAT WOULD SORT OF REVOLVE AROUND OR WORK AROUND A PARK LAND OR JUST TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT? WOULD THAT BE THE IDEA OR WOULD YOU JUST BAN TOP THE FOUR AREAS AND START FROM SCRATCH?>>CERTAINLY THE, AGAIN, THE PLANNING AREAS REALLY ARE ARTIFICIAL BOUNDARIES AT THIS POINT, BUT THE PARK AREA HAT WOULD BE DESIGNATED WOULD BE BUILT AND MORE THAN LIKELY COULD TAKE UP AREAS AND PLANNING AREAS FOR THREE AND FOUR, AND IT COULD ALSO BE THE SITE OF OUR 4H AND AGRICULTURAL EDUCATIONAL CENTER AS WELL AS OTHER PROPOSED DEVELOPMENTS.>>OK. AND MY UNDERSTANDING SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, SWITCHING GEARS NOW TO THE PROPOSED FMC CONTRACT EXTENSION IS THAT YOUR ALLING FOR ESSENTIALLY SOME SORT OF AN OUT CLAUSE FOR THE COUNTY, YOU’RE ASKING FOR SOME SORT OF OUT CLAUSE ON THE COUNTY SIDE THAT WOULD ESSENTIALLY ALLOW US TO TERMINATE BUT AT THE SAME TIME ALLOW CONTRACTORS, VENDORS, NEGOTIATORS TO KNOW THAT IT IS OUR PREFERENCE TO HAVE FMC THERE FOR 20 YEARS, IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY TERMINATION LANGUAGE THAT MIGHT AT SOME POINT BE EXERCISED.>>SO PART OF THE REASON I WANTED TO SEND THIS BACK TO STAFF IS I ACTUALLY THINK THAT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTION. THE WAY THIS, I WAIT I HOPED IT WOULD BE STRUCTURED IS THAT ANY AGREEMENT THAT EXCEEDS ONE YEAR WOULD AVE TO BE ADOPTED BY THE BOARD SO ULTIMATELY THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VENDOR AND US WOULD BE WITH US THROUGH FMC. THE REASON I WANT TO DO THAT IS I WANT TO CREATE THE OPTION FOR US TO HAVE A STRONG MANAGEMENT TEAM THERE BUT AT THE SAME TIME RECOGNIZE THAT THE AMORTIZATION OF THE PROPERTY OVERALL IS SOMETHING THAT THE BOARD WOULD NEED TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER.>>SUPERVISORS EXCUSE THE INTERRUPTION. I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY FOR THE PUBLIC. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, IN THE THE FMC BOARD.>>YES, THAT’S CORRECT.>>I WAS REFERRING TO THE FMC CONTRACT ITSELF. I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE SUGGEST I CAN A 20 YEAR TERM. TO GIVE THEM SOME GRAVITAS WITH THE FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY THEY ARE DEALING WITH BUT BRING BACK A TERMINATION ABILITY THAT WOULD BE SOME SHORT OF 20 YEARS IN THE EVENT THAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OR SUBSEQUENT BOARDS DECIDED THEY NEED TO GO A DIFFERENT DIRECTION I DON’T THAT’S CORRECT.>>THEN LASTLY, ALSO REQUEST FOR INFORMATION, I KNOW SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN ASKED FOR INFORMATION EARLIER, SO I JUST WANTED TO ADD MINE. THERE’S BEEN SOME HISTORY IN THIS COUNTY ABOUT 48,000 ACRES OF IT OF ACQUIRING PARK LAND BUT NOT IMMEDIATELY DEVELOPING IT, INVESTING OPERATION DOLLARS IN IT. — THAT DEAL WAS IN PLACE, PUT IN PERSPECTIVE AND YOU KNOW HOW LONG I’VE BEEN IN ELECTED OFFICE, IT WAS BEFORE I WAS IN ELECTED OFFICE AND IT WAS WHEN THE COUNTY HAD THE CAPACITY TO START INVESTING THAT IT DID, BUT THE PRESERVATION OF THAT PROPERTY WHICH WE ALL KNOW WAS A GREAT ACT OF PHILANTHROPY BY CARL — I WOULD JUST LIKE TO HAVE HIS SOMEBODY GO BACK THROUGH THE ARCHIVES AND BRING BACK TO US DAYS OF ACQUISITION OF PARK LAND THAT COUNTY HAS ACQUIRED VERSUS DATE OF ACT VACATION FOR USE. THE SO-CALLED OWEN RANCH ON MOUNT HAMILTON ROAD, WHICH I DON’T BELIEVE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED YET. I KNOW THIS BOARD OR FOUR MEMBERS OF THIS BOARD ACQUIRED IT YEARS AGO. I’M NOT OMPLAINING ABOUT THAT. I KNOW THERE’S REASONS FOR THAT. WHETHER IT’S PARK IF I UNDERSTAND PROPERTY OR PROPERTY HELD BY THE GENERAL FUND, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE INFORMATION BEFORE US, IF IT’S GOING TO SAY WHAT I THINK IT’S GOING TO SAY, THAT IT’S NOT EXTRAORDINARY FOR THE COUNTY TO GO INTO A PRESERVATION MODE ON A PIECE OF PROPERTY FOR PARK PURPOSES WITHOUT IMMEDIATELY ACTIVATEING IT AND HOLDING ON UNTIL RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE AS A SECOND STEP, IF THAT MAKES SENSE. SO I DON’T KNOW WHO WOULD PROVIDE THAT. I PROBABLE HAVE HIS OUR PARKS DIRECTOR PRETTY WORRIED BACK THERE.>>DON ROACH, THE OTHER DON ROACH WILL DO IT.>>THANK YOU. I DON’T THINK WE NEED TO GO THROUGH ALL 48,000 ACRES, BUT I’D LOOK FOR SOME SIGNIFICANT EXAMPLES OF THAT HAPPENING AND HOW LONG IT TOOK AND JUST A PARAGRAPH ON EACH ONE AS TO HOW THAT PROCESS UNFOLDED BETWEEN ACQUISITION AND ACTIVATION. THAT’S ALL I NEED FOR NOW AND LOOK FORWARD TO A MOTION AT SOME POINT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. SUPERVISOR ELLENBURG.>>THANK YOU. SUPERVISOR HAVEZ FIRST I WANT TO JUST CONGRATULATE YOU AND YOUR TEAM ON THIS. THIS REFERRAL IS REALLY, IT’S THOROUGH AND GOT A GREAT LEVEL OF DETAIL AND PUTS FORT AN EXCITING VISION. I DON’T MIND AT ALL THAT I WASN’T PART OF THE PAST THREE OR SIX OR HOWEVER MANY ITERATIONS THERE HAVE BEEN, BUT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING OF WHEN I STARTED RUNNING FOR THIS SEAT, I WAS ASKED ABOUT THE FAIRGROUNDS, WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE FAIRGROUNDS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING AT THE FAIRGROUNDS. IT WALE IS EXCITING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE AN ANSWER, AND I WANT TO THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBERS PARTICULARLY FOR MAKING UCH AN EFFECTIVE CASE AROUND THE CURRENT DENSITY OF HOUSING, THE NEEDS THAT ARE SPECIFIC TO THAT AREA, AND WHY OUSING IS NOT APPEARING TO BE THE HIGHEST INVEST USE YOU HAVE WHAT WE CAN DO THERE. IT’S CERTAINLY EXCITING TO HAVE THE SPORTS TEAMS SHOW INTEREST. THAT WOULD BE AN EXCITING DRAW AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. MY PERMANENT PRIORITY, IF WE’RE JUST TOSSING IN DREAMS TODAY IS LIKE SUPERVISOR CORTESE LOTS OF OPEN GREEN SPACE ND TREES AND TREES AND TREES.>>THANK YOU.>>IT’S FASCINATING TO SORT OF HEAR HOW EACH BOARD MEMBER’S EXPERIENCE ON THE BOARD AND WITH THE FOYER GROUNDS SHAPES THEIR THINKING AND THEIR VIEW. THE GOOD NEWS IS I’M NOT GOING TO REHASH 22 YEARS WORTH OF HISTORY, BUT I WILL JUST AND I’M GETTING A THUMBS UP FROM ONE OF MY COLLEAGUES ON THAT, BUT I DO WANT TO SAY, MY VIEWS ARE TO SOME EXTENT FORMED BY THE FACT THAT I SERVED ON THIS BOARD FROM 1997 TO THE YEAR 2000 WHEN WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE FAIR GROUNDS WAS A COMMON QUESTION AND HERE WE ARE ALL THESE YEARS LATER AND I’VE BEEN BACK FOR SEVEN YEARS NOW AND THIS HAS OCCUPIED A FAIR AMOUNT OF TIME AND ATTENTION, BUT NOT YET COME TO ANY RESOLUTION. I WANT TO SHARE MY VIEWS ABOUT THE FAIRGROUNDS MORE BROADLY AND THEN MORE SPECIFICALLY WITH RESPECT TO THIS PROPOSAL. I THINK IF YOU TAKE IT AS, YOU KNOW, THE FAIRGROUNDS PROPERTY IN ITS TOTALITY, THE TIME IS NOT YET RIGHT TO SORT OF IDENTIFY THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE PROPERTY IN TERMS OF THE PUBLIC INTEREST. I STAY AWAY FROM PHRASES LIKE HIGHEST AND BEST USE BECAUSE THAT HAS REAL ESTATE CONNOTATIONS THAT TO SOME PEOPLE MEANS BUILDINGS RISING UP INTO THE SKY. THAT’S NOT WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. I’M TALKING ABOUT HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC ASSET BENEFITS THE PUBLIC. THERE ARE LOTS OF COMPETING VISIONS OVER THE YEARS AND WE HEARD SOME TODAY, AS WELL, BUT I HAVE ALSO BEEN CONCERNED THAT BECAUSE IT’S SORT OF BEEN A YEAR TO YEAR PROPOSITION, I DO SHARE THE VIEW HAT IT’S BEEN DIFFICULT FOR FOLKS AT THE FAIRGROUNDS TO MAKE REAL PROGRESS IF IT’S, YOU KNOW, KIND OF DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT YEAR, NEXT MONTH, NEXT WEEK KIND OF PROPOSITION. I DO THINK THERE EEDS TO BE A LONGER TERM COMMITMENT TO GIVE FOLKS THE CHANCE TO CREATE SOMETHING THERE THAT TRULY DOES PROVIDE COMMUNITY VALUE, BUT I DON’T SEE IT AS QUOTE PERMANENT NECESSARILY, AND YOU KNOW FOREVER’S A VERY LONG TIME AND IN OUR WORK VERY RARELY DO WE DO THINGS THAT ARE FOREVER. I HAD MORE OF A 10 YEAR TIME FRAME IN MIND, JUST ROLLING AROUND THE BACK OF MY HEAD, I KEPT THINKING WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE THESE FOLKS 10 YEARS IF THEY’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO PUT SOME REASONABLE AMOUNT OF INVESTMENT INTO THE PROPERTY TO PROVIDE PUBLIC BENEFIT. NO MAGIC TO 10 YEARS, ARBITRARY NUMBER. TWENTY IS FOR ME A STRETCH. I COULD PROBABLY STRETCH THAT FAR. I GET VERY NERVOUS WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE TRYING TO GO PAST 20 YEARS, BECAUSE I THINK THE WORLD WILL CHANGE IN THE INTERVENING 20 YEARS ND WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR PLAN IS THAT WHILE NO ONE HAS USED THIS PHRASE, I THINK OF IT AS LAND BANKING WITH PUBLIC BENEFIT IN THE INTERIM, SO THE GOOD NEWS FOR BOARD MEMBERS IS — IF THE ITEM CAME BACK 20 YEARS FROM NOW, I’D WANT TO SEE THE MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY FOR THE ENTIRE SITE HAVING GIVEN THE MAXIMUM OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST IN THOSE 20 YEARS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST AND FOR THE PUBLIC BENEFIT. SO THAT’S THE THREADING OF THE NEEDLE I’M TRYING TO SEE, HICH IS PRESERVING SOME FLEXIBILITY LONG TERM BY WHICH I MEAN AFTER 20 YEARS WHILE STILL GIVING PEOPLE THE CERTAINTY THEY NEED IN THIS NEXT 20 YEARS TO IN VEST IN THE SITE AND DO SOME GOOD WORK. I WILL COME BACK TO UPERVISOR ELLENBURG IN A MINUTE. THEN I DO, I APPRECIATED SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN’S REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE PARK ISSUES AND SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ’S INFORMATION WAS THAT WAS INFORMATION SHE WAS HOPING TO GET, AS ELL. SUPERVISOR CORTESE INDICATED HEY LOTS OF WAYS TO HANDLE ACQUISITIONS AND SUBSEQUENT DEVELOPMENTS. I’M WANTING TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND ABOUT THAT. IF WE’RE TALKING LONGER THAN THE 20 YEARS, HAT’S PROBLEMATIC FOR ME, SO I JUST, I WANT TO SURFACE THAT RIGHT NOW. I’M GUESSING, AND THAT’S — THE REASON IT SAYS NOT PUTTING THIS IN THE PARK CHARTER FURNISHED IS BECAUSE THAT’S ALREADY STRESSED, I’M WONDERING WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM THEN TO DEVELOP THE PARK AND THAT MAY AGAIN TIE INTO COMMENTS MY COLLEAGUES SHARED ABOUT WHAT IT IS, SO I’M HOPING THAT WHEN THE INFORMATION COMES BACK FROM STAFF, WE’LL GET INFORMATION ABOUT THE RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES IN TERMS OF PARK AND OPEN SPACE, THE RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES ABOUT FUNDING. IF FOLKS ARE HOPING THAT THE REST OF THE SITE’S GOING TO BE A CASH COW THAT PAYS FOR AND I MEAN THAT IN THE WARMINGEST AND LOVINGEST OF WAYS, THE CASH COW THAT PAYS FOR THE OPEN SPACE, WE’RE GOING TO SEE IF THAT PENCILS OUT OR IF IT DOES OR ANOTHER SOURCE F FUNDS. WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS HERE I DO WANT TO SAY I THINK PARKS AND OPEN SPACE ARE FOR EVERYBODY AND I THINK THAT THAT NEEDS TO BE UNDERSCORED. I THINK IT’S AN ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE ISSUE, BUT I ALSO THINK WE SOMETIMES THINK THAT THE WORDS URBAN AND PARKS DON’T GO TOGETHER. I THINK THEY DO, AND I THINK WE HAVE TO SORT OF BE MINDFUL OF MAKING SURE THAT THOSE KINDS OF RECREATIONAL AMENITIES ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL WITHOUT REGARD TO INCOME LEVEL OR THEIR GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION IN THE CITY OR COUNTY. I JUST WANTED TO UNDERSCORE THAT PIECE. SO I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS THAN I HAVE CONCLUSIONS TODAY. I HAVE SAME QUESTION I THINK WAS ALREADY RAISED ABOUT WE WANT TO PROVIDE 20 YEARS WORTH OF COMMITMENT, BUT YEAR TO YEAR, FLEXIBILITY AND I THINK SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THAT’S WHY BOARD WOULD HAVE TO APPROVE CERTAIN CONTRACTS. IT WAS HELPFUL. FOR THOSE WHO WERE HERE FROM VARIOUS ATHLETIC ORGANIZATIONS, LOVE TO SEE THOSE AMENITIES, BUT HOPE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE LIMITS TO THE EXTENT OR ABILITY OF HIS A PUBLIC AGENCY TO BE SUBS DIEING PRIVATE PROFIT MAKING ENTERPRISES, SO FOLKS HAVE TO COME WITH REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS ON THAT FRONT. I DON’T KNOW IF THE CRICKET FOLKS ARE STILL HERE. I THINK SOME OF THEM HAD TO GO ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS BUT I WANT TO IMPOSE UPON YOU ALL A STORY FROM THE 1980’S, AND WHEN I WAS A PALO ALTO SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER AND WE WERE STRUGGLING WITH THE FACT THAT OUR FEEDS AND OPEN SPACE WERE OVERUSED, AND I TURNED TO SOMEBODY AND SAID I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN HAVE HALF THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS, MRS. NISS THIS WILL BE FAMILIAR TO YOU, HALF THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WE HAD IN THE 1980’S THAN THE 1960S AND HAVE MORE DEMAND FOR OPEN SPACE AND FIELDS. SOMEBODY SAID TITLE NINE. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T REMEMBER, TITLE NINE WAS THE ACTION AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL SAYING YOU WERE GOING TO PROVIDE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN A RANGE OF EDUCATIONAL AREAS FOR YOUNG WOMEN AS WELL AS FOR YOUNG MEN BUT PARTICULARLY WITH RESPECT TO SPORTS AND WHAT IT MEANT WAS THE GREEN FIELDS AND OPEN SPACE THAT HAD HISTORICALLY BEEN USED PRIMARILY BY YOUNG MEN AND BOYS WAS SUDDENLY BEING USED BY YOUNG WOMEN AND BY GIRLS AND TIMES CHANGED. IN MY VIEW THAT WAS A TIME WHEN THINGS CHANGED FOR THE BETTER, AND WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT CRICKET, IT MAKES ME SMILE BECAUSE WE’VE GOT A DIFFERENT POPULATION TODAY THAN 20 YEARS AGO OR 30 YEARS AGO OR 40 YEARS AGO, AND SO THE DEMAND FOR RECREATIONAL AMENITIES IS GOING TO CHANGE, AS WELL. SOME OF US IN THE ROOM REMEMBER WHEN PEOPLE SAID SKATEBOARDING, THAT’S NOT REALLY A SPORT, ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT THERE WAS A PRETTY HEALTHY COMPLEMENT OF FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY WHO THOUGHT THAT IT WAS. I DO THINK AND I GUESS I’M LOOKING AT YOU MR. ANDROTTI THAT WE NEED TO BE OPEN TO CHANGING DEMANDS. CRICKET TAKES A FAIR AMOUNT OF SPACE, BUT I THINK IT’S A USE THAT IS AT LEAST N TRYING I GO TO ME IN TERMS OF THE CHANGING RECREATIONAL DEMANDS OR REQUIREMENTS OF THE COMMUNITY. WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID, I’M GOING TO BE AN AYE VOTE TODAY WITH A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF I CAN’T E ON A PLAN I HAVE NOT SEEN BECAUSE IT HASN’T BEEN MORE FULLY DEVELOPED BUT I DO HAVE THOSE QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS THAT I’VE ARTICULATED AND I WANT TO SEE IF WE CAN THREAD THE NEEDLE OR PROPERLY BALANCE THE NEED FOR LONGER TERM COMMITMENT WHILE STILL PRESERVING FLEXIBILITY AT THE END OF HIS THAT PERIOD. OK? THANKS FOR LETTING ME WARNED THROUGH THAT TERRITORY. AND MISS ELLENBURG BACK TO YOU AND BACK TO SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ TO WRAP UP.>>WHEN I USED THE TERM HIGHEST AND BEST USE THAT WAS LEFTOVER REAL ESTATE LANGUAGE THAT I HAVEN’T MEANT TO EXSHIES. I MEANT THE BEST USE FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS.>>FORGIVE ME, I DID NOT MEAN TE PHRASE FOR YOUR USE, I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE MISUNDERSTAND THAT AS BEING A TERM THAT MEANS ONE THING AND NE THING ONLY WHEN RATHER CLEARLY IT DOES NOT SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.>>I’M HAPPY TO INCORPORATE ALL THE INFORMATION FROM MY COLLEAGUES BECAUSE THEY ALL MAKE GOOD ENSE. I DO WANT TO ASK STAFF AS THEY COME BACK WITH A STRATEGY FOR HOW WE PROCEED THAT THEY MAY NEED TO GIVE THE BOARD SOME OPTIONS RELATIVE TO KIND OF A STRONGER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE IMPLICATIONS ARE BOTH FOR THE OPEN SPACE AND ALSO FOR SOME OF THE INVESTMENTS WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MADE BY EXTERNAL PARTNERS AND THEN JUST TWO THINGS THAT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I ADDRESS. ONE, THAT THE — THAT IN ORDER TO GET AMORTIZED INVESTMENTS, THE REASON WE WANT ALL OF THESE TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD IS SO THAT WE HAVE AN OPTION AS TO WHICH TO CHOOSE YES AND WHICH TO CHOOSE NO. THE REASON WE AVOIDED THE PARK CHARTER FUND WAS FRANKLY SO I WOULDN’T MAKE ANYBODY UP HERE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH PROJECTS THAT WERE ALREADY ON THE LIST AND MAKE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE BETWEEN SOMETHING IN THEIR DISTRICT AND SOMETHING IN MINE. THAT BEING SAID, MY EXPECTATION WAS THAT THE ABILITY TO HAVE A FINANCIALLY BALANCED PLAN WOULD ALLOW US TO USE REVENUE AND RESOURCES FROM THE DIFFERENT PROJECTS THAT WERE ON THE PROPERTY TO BE ABLE TO INVEST IN THE OPEN SPACE NUMBER ONE AND NUMBER TWO, THEN THEREFORE ALLOW IT TO BE POSITIONED TO RECEIVE GRANT FUNDS FROM THE STATE FOR EXAMPLE AS THEY PUT SOME MONEY ASIDE FOR PARKS AND I ALSO THINK THERE WILL BE OPPORTUNITIES WITH PROJECTS THAT ARE COMING UP TO THAT DEVELOPED THAT ARE GOING TO NEED CREDITS WHETHER FOR PARKS OR OTHER THINGS. I THINK A PARK OF THIS SIZE POSITIONS IT NICELY TO RECEIVE THOSE RESOURCES. ONE OF THE THINGS THE STAFF WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK WITH ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF THE DEDICATION OF IT BEING PARK LAND VERSUS A DEDICATION OF IT BEING FOR 30 YEARS PARK SPACE. I THINK IF IT LIMITS OUR ABILITY TO FUND WHAT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO IN THE COMMUNITY THEN THE BOARD HAS A CHOICE THAT MAKE AS IT RELATES TO HOW WE WANT TO PROCEED THERE. SO WITH THAT, I DO WANT TO THANK YOU ALL THE SPEAKERS. I PARTICULARLY WANTED TO THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER SPARZA FOR YOUR THOUGHTFUL FEEDBACK AND LET MY COLLEAGUES KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF WORK ON THE MONTERREY CORRIDOR, ONE OF THE GATEWAYS TO THIS PROPERTY. WE WANT TO REALLY BE PARTNERS THERE SO WE CAN GET THE CITY TO PLAY A LEADERSHIP ROLE IN INVESTING BE, AS WELL. THOSE ARE ALL MY COMMENTS. I WANTED TO THANK YOU MY COLLEAGUES FOR YOUR REALLY THOUGHTFUL INPUT.>>ALL RIGHT. WE’LL ASK ALL FIVE TO VOTE ON THE SCREEN. THE MOTION CARRIES 5-0. THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL WHO CAME TO EITHER LISTEN TO AND OR SPEAK TO THE ITEM. THAT TAKES YOU GUESS I BELIEVE TO ITEM NUMBER 14, MADAM CLERK, IS THAT CORRECT? SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ GO RIGHT AHEAD.>>I KNOW WE HAVE PEOPLE EXITING THE ROOM, BUT I’M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND START BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT TO GO THROUGH. FIRST I WANTED TO PROVIDE FOR MY COLLEAGUES AND THE PUBLIC THE CONTEXT OF THIS REFERRAL. THEN I WILL ASK, THEN I WILL EXPLAIN THE PROBLEM WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE. THE MPETUS FOR THIS REFERRAL AND ALL THE STRANGULATION RESPONSE RELATED WORK WAS PROMPTED BY THE APRIL 15 SPECIAL HEARING ON SEXUAL ASSAULT THAT SUPERVISOR REFLECTIVITY AND I HELD WITH THE CITY OF SAN JOSE. WE LEARNED MORE ABOUT THIS AT OUR LAST BOARD MEETING. AS A RESULT OF THAT, THE BOARD APPROVED ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION — AT THE APRIL HEARING. THE OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY, THE OFFICE OF THE SHERIFF VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER AND SERVICE PROVIDERS ASKED US TO PROVIDE STRANGULATION RESPONSE SERVICE TO SAY VICTIMS, INCLUDING FORENSIC MEDICAL EXAMS. THIS GROUP OF LEADERS ALONG WITH THE OFFICE OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE PREVENTION HAS ALREADY CONVENED A WORK GROUP GATHERING TOWARD A RESPONSE PILOT NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY OF NEXT YEAR. THE STRANGULATION RESPONSE WORK GROUP IDENTIFIED CHALLENGES THAT PREVENT VICTIMS FROM REPORTING STRANGULATION AND SEEKING FORENSIC SERVICES AND EXAMS. VICTIMS WHO ARE UNINSURED OR UNDOCUMENTED ARE CONCERNED ABOUT ABILITY TO PAY FOR MEDICAL SERVICES AND MEDICAL FORENSIC EXAMS AND REPORTEDLY DECIDE NOT TO REPORT AND SEEK MEDICAL ASSISTANCE. ADDITIONAL SOME REPORTED CONCERNS ABOUT BILLING BEING MAILED AND AVAILABLE TO THE PERPETRATOR. THIS PUTS THEM IN ADDITIONAL PHYSICAL DANGER. THE STRANGULATION RESPONSE GROUP IS COMING TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS SEPTEMBER 10 FOR PROTOCOL AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PILOT. IN ORDER TO ROVIDE SERVICES TO THE VICTIMS OF STRANGULATION, THIS REFERRAL IS ASKING THE ADMINISTRATION AND COUNTY COUNCIL TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD ON DECEMBER 10 WITH THE MECHANISM THAT WOULD ELIMINATE IPB AND STRANGULATION REPORTING BARRIERS AS IT RELATES O VICTIMS SEEKING MEDICAL PRESENCIC EXAMS AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE OF ANY SEXUAL ASSAULT FORENSIC PROGRAMS THAT ARE LOCATED IN THE COUNTY. I’M ASKING FOR SOLUTIONS THAT WOULD IDENTIFY MECHANISM OR ESTABLISH A FUND TO PAY FOR STRANGULATION MEDICAL EXAMS AND ASSISTANCE FOR VISION WHO ARE UNINSURED OR UNDOCUMENTED AND SOLUTIONS THAT WOULD ESTABLISH A MECHANISM THAT WOULD GUARANTEE THE MEDICAL BILLING INFORMATION TO ASSURE BILLS WOULD NOT BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PERPETRATOR. THIS BILL REQUESTS THAT THEY WORK SLOWLY WITH THE RESPONSE GROUP FOR REQUESTED SOLUTIONS. I WANT TO CLOSE BY BRING I GO TO LIGHT THE VERY REAL DANGERS OF STRANGULATION TO THE VICTIMS WHO ARE OVERWHELMINGLY WOMEN AND GIRLS. PUT SIMPLY, STRANGULATION COULD EQUAL DEATH. NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOT LINES CAUTIONS THAT A VICTIM IS 10 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY A PARTNER WHO HAS STRANGLED THEM IN THE PAST. I WANT TO READ THAT AGAIN. NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOT LINES CAUTIONS THAT A VICTIM IS 10 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY A PARTNER WHO HAS STRANGLED THEM IN THE PAST. ACCORDING TO THE SAN DIEGO BAILED TRAINING INSTITUTE ON STRANGULATION PREVENTION, STRANGULATION LEAVES VICTIMS WITH DAMAGE TO THEIR THROAT AND BRAINS. A LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS CONCUR BETWEEN FIVE AND 10 MINUTES, I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S MINUTES OR SECONDS AND DEATH CONCUR WITHIN MINUTES, DAYS OR WEEKS OF THE ATTACK. ONE IN FOUR WOMEN WILL EXPERIENCE AN INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE IN THEIR LIFE TIMES. THAT’S REALLY CRITICAL. 25% OF US EXPERIENCE THIS, AND UP TO 68% WILL EXPERIENCE A NEAR FATAL STRANGULATION BY THEIR PARTNER. 38% OF VICTIMS REPORT LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS, 9% WERE ALSO PREGNANT DURING THE ATTACK AND 70% OF STRANGLED WOMEN BELIEVE THEY WERE GOING TO DIE. INJURIES LEFT BY HESE ATTACKS ARE NOT ALWAYS IMMEDIATE OR VISIBLE AND CAN BE — AND ARE NOT ALWAYS OBVIOUS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT OR FIRST FIRST RESPONDERS. THE SAN DIEGO INSTITUTE NOTE THAT HALF THE VICTIM HAVE VISIBLE INJURIES AND OF THESE, ONLY 15% CAN BE PHOTOGRAPHED. THE MOST COMMON VISIBLE INJURIES ARE DETECTED BY INFRARED FORENSIC CAMERAS IDENTIFYING DAMAGE IN THE THROAT. I ASK MY COLLEAGUES TO TAKE A STEP TO ENHANCE OUR ABILITY AND OUR CHANCE AT BEING ABLE TO SAVE THE LIVES BY ENABLING ACCESS TO FORENSIC MEDICAL EXAMS AND SERVICES.>>DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM? WE DO NOT. BRING THE VOTING OPINION NECESSARILY UP. WE HAVE THE RECOMMENDED ACTIONS CONTAINED ON PACKET PAGE. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ HAS MADE THE MOTION IN SUPPORT, THE SECOND IS FROM SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN FOR THE RECORD. WE’LL ASK ALL FIVE MEMBERS.>>I HAVE A COMMENT.>>EXCUSE ME. SUPERVISOR ELLENBURG.>>IN ADDITION TO THE CONSIDERATIONS IN THE REFERRAL, WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT, I WANT TO ADD THREE ADDITIONAL REQUESTS, PLEASE. FIRST, AS NOTED IN THE REFERRAL, WE LEARNED ABOUT THE SPECIFIC FOCUS AND I.P.V. ON STRANGULATION VICTIMS THROUGH A PILOT AT THE SHERIFFS OFFICE AND IN OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. I WOULD LIKE ADMINISTRATION TO ALSO CLARIFY IN THEIR REPORT BACK HOW HE OFFICE OF THE SHERIFF WOULD WORK IN COORDINATION WITH OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT JURISDICTIONS, FOR EXAMPLE WHO RECEIVES THE CALL, WHO INVESTIGATES, WHO’S THE HOLDER OF THE DATA AND HOW DO WE ASSESS THE DATA WITHOUT VIOLATING PRIVACY RIGHTS OF THE SURVIVOR. SECOND WHEN ADMINISTRATION THAT CLARIFICATION ON THE VMC BILLING POSES AND PROCEDURES, WITH THE AGREEMENT OF PRESIDENT SIMIDIAN, I’D LIKE THEM TO REPORT BACK PRIOR TO DECEMBER 5 ON THAT ITEM INCLUDING COMPARING THE BILLING PROCESSES IN PLACE TO SUPPORT SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVORS AND OTHER DB MEDICAL EXAMS. FINALLY I WOULD LIKE THE REPORT BACK ON THIS ITEM TO INCLUDE AN ALIGNMENT ON COUNTY PROTOCOLS LIKE THE ONE IN THE SEXUAL ASSAULT DRAFT PROTOCOL, WHICH WAS ADOPTED IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR. IN THAT DRAFT PROTOCOL, IT’S NOTED THAT SEXUAL ASSAULT IS ADDRESSED IN OTHER INVESTIGATIONS THAT ARE ADDRESSED IN EXISTING COUNTY PROTOCOLS, SUCH AS HIGHLAND ABUSE, HUMAN TRAFFICKING,.>>WITHOUT, OBJECTION AND HEARING NONE, I JUST WANT TO GET IT INTO THE RECORD THAT RECOMMEND ACTION AND DIRECTION OF STAFF WOULD NOT ENTAIL ANY DELAY IN STANDING UP ACILITIES IN THE SOUTH COUNTY OR STANFORD HOSPITAL.>>ABSOLUTELY NOT.>>I JUST DON’T WANT FOLKS TO SAY WE’RE WORKING OUT THIS NEW OR ADDITIONAL PROTOCOL.>>LET ME RESPOND TO THAT, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE THE LAST THING WE WOULD WANT TO DO. WHAT I RECOGNIZE AND I THINK YOU DO, TOO, FROM THIS COMING BEFORE HEALTH AND HOSPITAL COMMITTEE IS THAT WE’RE GOING TO KEEP MAKING IMPROVEMENTS TO HE SYSTEM WHILE WE KEEP MOVING IT FORWARD AND IN PARTICULAR, I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT ANOTHER BODY OF WORK THAT THE BOARD HAS LREADY APPROVED BUT THAT WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH OUR EMS PARTNERS IS TO INCLUDE A MECHANISM FOR PROPERLY RECORDING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR SEXUAL ASSAULT, PARTICULARLY SEXUAL ASSAULT AS N WHEN THEY PULL DOWN THEIR SCREEN AND SAY WHY SOMEONE’S BEING TRANSPORTED, BECAUSE RIGHT NOW, WE WOULD BE ONE OF THE FEW PLACES IN THE COUNTRY THAT ACTUALLY TRACK THAT, SO WE’RE MOVING A LOT OF DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES WHILE WE’RE REALLY ENCOURAGING STAFF TO KEEP MOVING AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN TO SNAKE SURE SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE IN SOUTH COUNTY AND NORTH COUNTY.>>THANKS VERY MUCH FOR THAT ASSURANCE. ALL FIVE MEMBERS, PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY VOTE ON THE SCREEN. ALL FIVE HAVE DONE SO. WE’LL ANNOUNCE THAT THE MOTION CARRIES 5-0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US ON TO ITEM NUMBER 15.>>THANK YOU. THIS ITEM IS AN APPROVAL, I’M ASKING FOR A REFERRAL TO ADMINISTRATION TO REPORT TO THE BOARD WITH OPTIONS FOR CONSIDERATION ELATIVE TO A STUDY ON THE PUBLIC COST OF GUN VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTY FROM 2000 TO TODAY. I WANTED TO START BY THANKING SUPERVISOR CORTESE FOR HIS INCREDIBLE LEADERSHIP ON GUN SAFETY AND ACKNOWLEDGE ALL THE WORK HE HAS DONE TO PAVE THE ROAD TO IMPROVING GUN SAFETY IN THE COUNTY. IT’S CLEAR FROM THE PREVALENCE OF MASS SHOOTINGS ESPECIALLY IN GILROY SOME SUMMER, THE UNACCEPTABLE INJURIES AND DEATHS FROM YOUNG PEOPLE FROM FIREARMS THAT WE NEED STRONG GUN SAFETY POLICIES. THE BOARD AND PUBLIC SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE FULL SCOPE OF WHAT GUN VIOLENCE COSTS THE COUNTY AND OUR COMMUNITY. IN 2017 FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE RATE OF FIREARM DEATHS EXCEEDED THE DEATHS BY MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS AND 35% OF THOSE DEATHS WERE SUICIDE FROM FIREARMS. GUN VIOLENCE IMPOSES ALMOST A $229 BILLION IN TOTAL ANNUAL COSTS ON THE UNITED TATES, AND THAT’S 1.4 OF OUR GDP, IN CALIFORNIA, THE ESTIMATED GUN COSTS OF VIOLENCE IS OVER $18 BILLION AND OVER 3,000 PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 25 WERE KILLED WITH A GUN BETWEEN 2013 AND 2017. I KNOW THAT THIS IS INFURIATING FOR ALL OF US WHO SIT HERE AND THE COUNTY’S PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND RESEARCH REPORTS ON THIS TOPIC HAVE BEEN REALLY HELPFUL. WHAT WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO IS QUANTIFY ALL THE COSTS FROM DEATHS, HOSPITALIZATION, EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT VISITS, THAT — AND THAT THE PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT HAS ALREADY TAKEN A LOOK AT BUT ALSO TAKING A OOK AT WHAT OTHER AREAS THAT MAY BE OF CRITICAL COSTS TO US, INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES, EMPLOYER COSTS, CRIMINAL JUSTICE COSTS, POLICE COSTS, AND EVEN THE MORGUE IN TERMS OF HOW MUCH WE’RE INVESTING. THE STUDY ONCE COMPLETE WIN INFORM US OF THE OPTIONS THE COUNTY CAN TAKE TO IMPROVE GUN SAFETY POLICIES. THOSE ARE ALL MY COMMENTS.>>THANK YOU. DO WE HAVE ANY CARDS FROM SPEAKERS? WE DO NOT. COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS OF THE BOARD? LET’S GET THE VOTING PANEL UP ON THE SCREEN PLEASE.>>THANK YOU TO SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ FOR PARTICULARLY INCLUDING REFERENCE TO THE 60% OF THE FIREARMS VIOLENCE RELATED DEATHS THAT ARE SELF INFLICTED OR SUICIDE. AT ONE POINT, WE HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE ACTUAL ORONER’S DATA AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT CAME UP OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN AT LAST YEAR’S FIREARMS SUMMIT WHICH ALL OF YOU ENDORSED AMONG THE 300 PEOPLE THERE IS THAT IT IS A COMPELLING AREA TO TRY TO FOCUS ON TO PREVENT DEATHS AND IT SEEMS LIKE SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO TO CUT DOWN THE NUMBERS SIGNIFICANTLY, SO THANK YOU FOR RAISING THAT AND I DON’T KNOW IF THE COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION, SECOND POINT, COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION CAN HELP OR IF YOU ALREADY INCLUDED IN YOUR THOUGHTS, BUT TO ASK OUR SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE COUNTY WHAT THE COST OF THEM PREPARING AND RESPONDING TO THREATS, MANY OF US HAVE SERVED ON SCHOOL BOARDS. I REMEMBER WHEN WE STARTED DOING THE CODE RED DRILLS, THAT BEING A SORT OF SIGNIFICANT HIDDEN BUT SIGNIFICANT COST TO OUR SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND FOR PART OF YOUR METHOD HERE IS TO TRY TO ASSESS THE. COST THAT S OCCURRING.>>THANK, THAT’S A REALLY GREAT POINT.>>WE DO HAVE A MOTION BY SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ. IF WE CAN GET A SECOND, THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. CAN WE GET A SECOND? THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR CORTESE. BEFORE WE VOTE, DOCTOR OF THE SMITH WOULD APPARENTLY LIKE TO LEAN IN AND I HAVE ONE BRIEF COMMENT REQUEST IN A MOMENT.>>THIS IS A FABULOUS IDEA. I JUST WANTED TO ASK FOR A LITTLE BIT OF CLARIFICATION COLLECTING ALL THIS DATA IS VERY, VERY CRITICAL AND VERY IMPORTANT BUT ALSO WILL TAKE SOME TRIAL, SO I’M PRESUMING FROM THE NATURE OF THE REFERRAL THAT YOU WANT US TO COME BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH SOME TIME LINES AND OPTIONS FOR HOW WE WILL DO THAT, AND YOU’RE NOT WANTING US TO WAIT UNTIL WE HAVE ALL THE DATA TO COME BACK.>>THAT’S ACTUALLY A REALLY GOOD POINT DOCTOR OF THE SMITH. MAYBE THE FIRST THING WOULD BE TO COME BACK AND JUST LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK THAT WORK LOAD WOULD TAKE IN TIMELINE, BECAUSE SOME OF THIS PUBLIC HEALTH IS COLLECTED, BUT I THINK TO SUPERVISOR CORTESE’S POINT THERE MAY BE PARTNERS WE NEED TO REACH OUT TO THAT HOLD THAT DATA. A TIMELINE AND WORK PLAN WOULD BE GREAT.>>THE CORONER, THE SCHOOLS, THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS, YOU KNOW, CERTAINLY PUBLIC HEALTH, THE HOSPITALS, SOME CLINIC STUFF, YOU KNOW WITH THAT IT HAS A DRAMATIC EFFECT AS YOU KNOW ON EVERY PART OF OUR LIFE, AND SO I’D LIKE US TO COME BACK WITH A THOUGHTFUL RECOMMENDATION TO THE BOARD.>>ALSO, YOU MAY NEED TO COME BACK WITH A SCOPE, TOO. I REALIZED AS I WAS LISTENING TO YOU, PART OF THE REASON I’M SO INTERESTED IN THE PUBLIC COST, I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO ALLOW US TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHO SHOULD HELP US PAY FOR THAT COST.>>OH, OK.>>SO I REALLY WANT TO FOCUS ON THE PUBLIC COST OF THAT, BUT I THINK IF YOU’RE RIGHT, IF WE COME BACK WITH A WORK PLAN, BECAUSE SOME OF LITTLE DID YOU AND SOME IS NOT.>>ALL RIGHT. I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY. GREAT JOB.>>SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN, I SEE YOUR LIGHT ON.>>I WOULD LIKE TO ASK WHEN THE COSTS COME BACK AND WE WENT THROUGH THIS WHEN WE WERE TRYING TO ASSESS THE COST OF HOMELESSNESS, SOME THINGS ARE VERY EASY TO COST, OTHER THINGS ARE MORE CONFUSING, FOR INSTANCE, OUR EMERGENCY ROOM AT VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER IS OPEN 24/7 WHETHER WE HAVE FIVE PEOPLE THERE ON ONE DAY OR 15 ON ONE DAY, WE HAVE THE SAME STAFF COSTS, PG AND E COSTS, APPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION OF OUR EQUIPMENT, DOESN’T CHANGE. WHAT I’VE SEEN OVER TIME, WE SAY OK, WE HAVE HE COST OF THE HOMELESS IN OUR JAILS. WHETHER THERE’S A HOMELESS PERSON IN THE JAIL OR NOT, WE STILL HAVE A CORRECTIONAL OFFICER THERE AND WE HAVE A HOMELESS PERSON, I’M JUST USING HOMELESS AT ONE EXAMPLE OF DETERMINING COST. IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM, THERE OR NOT THERE, OUR COST S THE SAME, WHETHER NO ONE VISITS OUR EMERGENCY ROOM OR 100 VISIT OUR EMERGENCY ROOM. WHAT I’VE SEEN OVER NINE YEARS IS A LOT OF IME THE SAME COSTS GETS ATTRIBUTED FOR THIS AND FOR THIS AND FOR THIS. THERE’S AN AUTO ACCIDENT, FOR INSTANCE, AND WE ASSESS WHEN IT COSTS OUR EMERGENCY ROOM, SO I JUST ASK ADMINISTRATION WHEN YOU COME BACK AS BEST YOU CAN TO ACTUALLY IDENTIFY THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHOOTING, FOR INSTANCE, AND THAT’S WHEN YOU ARE BRINGING IN PSYCHIATRISTS AND COUNSELORS AND ALL HANDS ON DECK AND IT’S STILL GOING ON AND THE EFFORT OUR DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS DOING DOWN SOUTH, VICTIM WITNESS AND ALL, THAT’S ALL BEEN INCREASED, AND THAT I CAN SEE AS DIRECT COST CAUSE AN EFFECT KIND OF A THING. I WOULD JUST ASK IN OTHER AREAS WHEN YOU’RE STUD IS DONE, WHOEVER YOU DIRECT TO DO THAT, THAT YOU LOOK AT OK, ARE THESE COSTS BECAUSE OF THIS ISSUE OR NOT.>>GOOD POINT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, THE ONE REQUEST I WOULD MAKE IS THAT AS WE DIRECT PUBLIC HEALTH OR ANY OTHER PART OF THE ORGANIZATION TO PULL THIS INFORMATION THAT IT BE — THAT THE WORK PRODUCT COME IN A FORM THAT CAN BE READILY SHARED WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS, BOTH ACADEMIC AND GOVERNMENTAL OR QUASI GOVERNMENTAL. SOME BOARD MEMBERS MAYBE FAMILIAR WITH HE DICKY AMENDMENT FROM THE 1990’S THAT SPECIFICALLY CONCLUDED THE CDC FROM DOING THIS KIND OF RESEARCH WORK OR AT LEAST WAS INTERPRETED BY THE CDC AS PRECLUDING IT FROM DOING THIS WORK. SO THE PLACE WHERE FRANKLY I THINK IT WOULD HAVE MADE GREAT SENSE FOR THEM TO BE ENGAGED AND DO THIS KIND OF RESEARCH HAS NOT BEEN FREE O DO IT. THERE’S BEEN SOME RECENT CHANGE LEGISLATIVELY BUT MY UNDERSTANDING NOT SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO MOVE THE CDC TO SEE IF THEY CAN WEIGH IN. I’M HOPING IT IS RELEVANT TO LOCAL BUT MORE AROUND THE STATE OF THE NATION AND ASK THAT THE INFORMATION BE PREPARED WITH THAT POSSIBILITY IN MIND.>>I THINK THAT’S EXCELLENT FEEDBACK, THANK YOU.>>WE’LL ASK ALL FIVE MEMBERS TO PLEASE VOTE ON THE SCREEN. WE’LL ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS AND ANNOUNCE THAT THE ITEM HAS PASSED ON A 5-0 VOTE. COLLEAGUES, WE ARE PLANNING ON A 12:30 RECESS AS I MENTIONED EARLIER. I’M GUESSING THAT SOME FOLKS ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE, THEN COMING BACK AT 1:30 FOR THE STANFORD MATTERS, ISSUES THAT ARE NOT YET ADDRESSED AT THAT TIME WILL BE HEARD. WE MAY BE SHORT ONE BOARD MEMBER BY THAT TIME, BUT AS WE’RE TRYING TO YOU MANAGE THE AGENDA HERE TODAY, WANTED US TO BE MINDFUL OF THAT. IN GENERAL, I AM NOT INCLINED TO REARRANGE OUR AGENDA MID STREAM. CAN I ASK HOW MANY OF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE MENTALLY DISABLED HOUSING ITEM? OK. THOUGHTS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE MIGHT TAKE THAT ITEM UP NEXT. YES, NO?>>YOU ALSO HAVE A LITTLE CROWD FOR ANOTHER ITEM.>>WHAT IS THE LITTLE CROWD FOR THE OTHER ITEM HERE FOR?>>MOVE TO AMEND.>>AH, GREAT, OK.>>I’M HAPPY TO MOVE MINE. I DON’T HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON MINE.>>OK.>>COLLEAGUES, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS. WE HAVE 20 POUNDS OF POTATO PUT IN A 10-POUND BAG. NO OFFENSE, I DID NOT MEAN TO CALL ANYBODY A POTATO. SHE LOOKED AT ME, HOW TACTLESS CAN YOU BE?>>THERE ARE SPEAKERS ON BOTH. I SUGGEST WE TAKE THEM IN THE ORDER THAT THE AGENDA IS ET FORTH BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE WHAT THEIR EXPECTATIONS WERE COMING IN.>>GREAT. THEN I’M LOOKING AT ITEM NUMBER 19, WHICH WOULD BE THE NEXT OF THOSE TWO ITEMS AND THEN ITEMS 24 THROUGH 27. WITHOUT OBJECTION, COLLEAGUES, I’D LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT THOSE BE OUR NEXT TWO ITEMS SO WE CAN TAKE THOSE UP. SUPERVISOR ELLENBURG, NOT A PERFECT WORLD, BUT IS THAT ACCEPTABLE TO OU? OK, THANKS. MADAM CLERK, SORRY TO THROW YOU A CURVEBALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MEETING, BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE GET FOLKS SQUARED AWAY. THAT TAKES US TO ITEM 19, AND WHO’S GOING TO BE PRESENTING ON THAT ONE? SUPERVISOR CORTESE.>>YEAH, I THINK THAT’S ME, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’LL JUST OPEN IT UP AND I GUESS WE CAN GET RIGHT TO THE SPEAKERS AND TRY TO KEEP THINGS MOVING. THE BOARD, I THINK IS VERY WELL VERSED ON THIS ISSUE. EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. THE REFERRAL FOR ME IS REALLY ATTACHED TO A RESOLUTION PREPARED OR O PREPARED BY OUR COUNTY COUNCIL ONCE WE HAD A REQUEST FROM ACTIVISTS IN THE COMMUNITY SOME OF WHOM ARE HERE TO SPEAK TODAY. AS YOU KNOW, THIS KIND OF EFFORT HAS BEEN GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN TERMS OF TRYING TO MOBILIZE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SUPPORT FOR THE NOTION OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ESTABLISH I CAN THAT MONEY IS NOT SPEECH. I’M GOING TO STOP THERE AND LET THE SPEAKERS SPEAK TO THAT IF THAT’S OK WITH YOU AND THEN WE CAN COME BACK.>>THANK YOU. AND APROPOS OF OUR EARLIER CONVERSATION, I’M GOING TO SUGGEST THAT FOR BOTH THESE NEXT TWO ITEMS TO SEE IF WE CAN’T GET THEM DONE BY CLOSE TO 1230 THAT WE ASK SPEAKERS TO LIMIT THEIR REMARKS TO ONE MINUTE EACH. I’LL JUST SAY GOING IN, I’M SYMPATHETIC AND SUPPORTED. I VOTED FOR JOINT RESOLUTION 22 BACK IN 2012 WHEN I WAS IN THE STATE SENATE. THIS IS FAMILIAR TERRITORY TO ME AND I THINK YOU’VE GOT A SYMPATHETIC AUDIENCE.>>THANK YOU. I’M RESIDENT OF DISTRICT FIVE, REPRESENTING THE MOVE TO AMEND ORGANIZATION, WHICH IS A NATIONWIDE ORGANIZATION WITH HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS WORKING FOREVER A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT WOULD ALLOW THE REGULATION OF MONEY IN POLITICS. I THINK THERE ARE 10 OF US HERE TO SPEAK. I FIRST WANT TO TALK ABOUT CORPORATE RIGHTS. WE’VE HAD A BILL OF RIGHTS FOR 230 YEARS, WHICH MEANS THAT RIGHTS SHOULD BE PERMANENT AND I AM MUTABLE. CORPORATIONS CERTIFIED UNDER STATE LAW WHICH MEANS THEY CAN BE DESSERTIFIED UNDER STATE LAWS, SO THESE RIGHTS ARE NOT PERMANENT. THEREFORE, I AM REQUESTING A YES VOTE ON THIS RESOLUTION. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. MR. ENSTROM. THANK YOU FOR RESPECTING THE TIME LIMIT.>>GREETINGS, SUPERVISORS, AND THANK YOU EACH INDIVIDUALLY FOR SOME OF YOUR PAST SUPPORT OF OUR EFFORTS. MY NAME IS CRAIG DUNKER LEE FOR CLEAN MONEY CAMPAIGN. WE ARE OF COURSE ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THE WORDING OF THIS PARTICULAR RESOLUTION TODAY BUT AS YOU MAY KNOW, THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL STATES AND MANY OUR MUNICIPALITIES AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS THAT HAVE PASSED SIMILAR RESOLUTIONS. WHILE WE ARE ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THIS PARTICULAR ONE, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE EXACT WORDING OF A 28th AMENDMENT MIGHT END OF BEING, AND SO WANTED TO JUST POINT OUT THAT REALLY OUR OVERAMPING PURPOSE TODAY IS TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO SUPPORT, TO BRICK THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF THE COUNTRY TO ADD SANTA CLARA’S VOICE TO THE GROWING CHORUS OF THE VOICES ACROSS THE NATION THAT WE EED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT MONEY IN POLITICS.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US TO GEORGIA PLATS.>>HELLO. AS YOU KNOW, OUR COMMUNITY HAS AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING CRISIS, AND I VOLUNTEER WITH AN ANTI POVERTY GROUP THAT WORKS ON ISSUES LIKE AFFORDABLE HOUSING. EVERY YEAR WE GO TO WASHINGTON, D.C. AND MEET FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE STAFF UP IN WASHINGTON, AND RIGHT NOW, WE ARE FOCUSED ON AFFORDABLE HOUSING. WHEN I WAS TALKING TO ONE OF THE AIDS, HE SAID HE’S INCREASINGLY WORRIED ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF BIG MONEY IN POLITICS TO SHRINK GOVERNMENT DOWN TO BASICALLY NOTHING. HE SAYS CONSTITUENTS COME WITH PRESSING NEEDS AND HE’S WORRIED THAT EVENTUALLY WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET ANY LEGISLATION FOR THE PEOPLE. THEY SAY MONEY IS SPEECH AND SPEECH CAN’T BE LIMITED BUT RIGHT NOW BIG MONEY IN POLITICS IS PUTTING A MUTE BUTTON ON CONSTITUENTS. I HOPE YOU WILL PASS THIS RESOLUTION. WE NEED TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD.>>I’M BRIAN CARR, A MEMBER OF THE MOVE TO AMEND AND THE SIERRA CLUB. I HOPE YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT THE OP ED THAT WAS PUBLISHED IN THE MERCURY NEWS. YOUR ACTION IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE PROGRESS MUST BEGIN AT THE LOCAL LEVEL. MONEY IS SO DOMINANT ENACTING COMMON SENSE GUN CONTROL, BACKGROUND CHECKS AND ADDRESSING CLIMATE CHANGE, ALMOST NOTHING HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED AND I THINK WE KNOW WHY. THE KOCH BROTHERS SPENT $19 MILLION IN THE 2016 ELECTION AND WERE ABLE TO TARGET AND DEFEAT OPPONENTS IN THE PRIMARY. THANK YOU FOR BRING, INC. THIS ACTION.>>>>GOOD MORNING MY AME IS JERRY HUNT. HEALTH CARE IN THE UNITED STATES IS 50% MORE EXPENSIVE THAN ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. THAT EXCESS COST RELATES TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE PRIVATE HEALTH INDUSTRY. BECAUSE THE SUPREME COURT HAS EQUATED MONEY AS EQUIVALENT TO FREE SPEECH, THE HEALTH INSURANCE INDUSTRY HAS MILLIONS OF PREMIUM DOLLARS TO INFLUENCE LEGISLATIVE ACTIVITY. WE NEED TO REGULATE CAMPAIGN FINANCING. YOUR RESOLUTION WILL HELP CREATE A WAVE OF SUPPORT FOR FEDERAL ACTION. THE BEST LEAST COSTLY SOLUTION IS A SINGLE UBLIC TRANSPARENT NONPROFIT SUCH AS MEDICARE FOR ALL RATHER THAN PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE. THANK YOU.>>MR. MEANS.>>TOO OFTEN WHEN CORPORATION ASSERT THEIR RIGHTS, REAL PEOPLE SUFFER. GUN CONTROL, WHEN PEOPLE WERE ADVOCATING AN OTHERWISE I CAN TO ADDRESS THE EPIDEMIC OF GUN VIOLENCE IN THE UNITED STATES AND SUPER MAJORITIES OF AMERICANS WANT MORE REGULATION OF GUNS, MANY OBSERVERS POINT TO THE POLITICAL INFLUENCE OF THE NRA AS THE MAIN CAUSE OF INACTION. WE’RE FINDING OUT IT’S COSTING US $18 BILLION HERE IN CALIFORNIA, AND THE CDC WAS ALSO BANNED FROM GIVING STATISTICS ALL BECAUSE OF THE NRA THAT ACTS LIKE A BIG MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR BULLY WITH A BULLHORN. NRA NEVER BACKS DOWN FROM ITS HARD LINE POSITIONS. THEY GO ON THE OFFENSIVE, AND DEMAND THAT LAWMAKERS MAKE IT EASIER FOR MORE PEOPLE TO CARRY GUNS IN PUBLIC AND FREQUENTLY ATTACK THE INTEGRITY OF THOSE WHO WANT TO CRACK DOWN ON LOOSE GUN LAWS, ALL BECAUSE THEY COULD LOSE MONEY.>>GOOD AFTERNOON, THANK YOU, FIRST, I WANT TO SAY FOR TAKING THE BURDEN AND WILLINGNESS TO BE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES. I’M DISTRICT FOUR, ‘VE BEEN A SANTA CLARA CITIZEN FOR 44 YEARS AND I’M WITH THE MOVE TO AMEND EFFORT. YOU ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF DECISIONS. DECISIONS, DEPOSITION EXHIBIT IS THE DECISIONS WE MAKE. WE STRENGTHEN OUR WEAKEN FROM THE START WE WERE GIVEN A REPUBLIC WHERE SUPREME POWER RESTS IN THE CITIZENS WHO ARE ENTITLED TO VOTE. DECISIONS HAVE ERODED AND ARE ERODING THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF OUR DEMOCRACY. POWER NOW IS HEAVILY INVESTED IN MONEY. CORPORATIONS, SPECIAL IT INTERESTS, LOBBYIST SERVING THEMSELVES AND OVERWHELMING US. CITIZENS UNITED MADE IT LEGAL FOR CORPORATIONS AND UNIONS TO TAKE FUNDS AND SPEND THEM FROM THEIR GENERAL TREASURIES. HOW DO THEY COMPETE WITH BIG MONEY? PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS RESOLUTION. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. I’M GOING TO ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE VOTING PANEL.>>I LIVE IN DISTRICT TWO. I SUPPORT THE RESOLUTION. FIRST I WANT TO THANK YOU SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND SUPERVISOR CORTESE AND THEIR STAFFS AND IN PARTICULAR SUPERVISOR CORTESE FOR INTRODUCING T. SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT EXISTS FOR THIS RESOLUTION THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. PUBLIC OPINION POLLS SHOWED OVERWHELMING SUPPORT. NATIONALLY MOVE TO AMEND HAS COLLECTED 470,000 SIGNATURES IN SUPPORT OF HIS A SIMILAR RESOLUTION. NEARLY 20 STATES AND HUNDREDS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAVE PASSED MEASURES SUPPORTING SIMILAR CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDED. LOCALLY FIVE CITIES HAVE DONE SO INCLUDING SAN JESUS. RECENTLY, THE SOUTH BAY LABOR COUNCIL SPECIFICALLY ENDORSED THIS. IF YOU PASS THIS, YOU WILL BE THE LARGEST LOCAL GOVERNMENT TO IN FACT SUPPORT THIS SO THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERATION.>>THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE, COME ON UP.>>I’M FROM DISTRICT FOUR, BOB LORD. QUOTING FROM THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT, THAT PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY WERE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN IN ALIENABLE RIGHTS. RIGHTS THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, GOVERNMENTS ARE INSTITUTED MONG PEOPLE, DERIVING THEIR JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED THAT WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER IT. IT’S TIME FOR ALTERATION. THE RESOLUTION BEFORE YOU TODAY SUPPORTING THE 28th AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES THAT MONEY IS NOT SPEECH AND CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE IS A STEP TOWARD DEMOCRACY. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I BELIEVE THAT’S OUR LAST SPEAKER, MADAM CLERK. THE CLERK CONFIRMS THAT IT IS. THAT WOULD BE TIME FOR A MOTION, IF YOU’D LIKE TO MAKE SUCH A MOTION, SUPERVISOR CORTESE HAS DONE SO. SECONDED. ALL FIVE MEMBERS VOTE, THAT’S BEEN DONE. DISPLAY THE RESULTS. THE MOTION CARRIES 5-PEZ. THANKS VERY MUCH. WHILE WE DON’T WANT TO STIFLE ANYBODY’S SPEECH, WE TRIED TO LIMIT OUTBURSTS HERE IN THE CHAMBERS. THANK YOU. THAT TAKES US THEN TO ITEMS 24-27 AND COLLEAGUES.>>JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU THEM ALL FOR COMING, PRESIDENT SIMIDIAN. THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN TO TESTIFY AND FOR YOUR PRIOR WORK TODAY.>>24 THROUGH 27, WOULD YOU LIKE TO PROVIDE SOME INCIDENT DRUGRY COMMENTS, SIR?>>GOOD AFTERNOON, IN MARCH 2019, THE BOARD APPROVED $10 MILLION FOR THE DEVELOPMENTAL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL OR DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. TODAY WOULD ALLOCATE $10 MILLION FOR THREE PROJECTS, ONE EACH IN THE CITIES OF PALO ALTO, SANTA CLARA AND SUNNY VEIL. THEY WOULD PRODUCE 214 NEW AMOUNTS, 60 OF WHICH ARE SET ASIDE FOR PERSONS WITH INTELLECTUAL OR DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. IF EVERYTHING MOVES FORWARD AS PLANNED, ALL OF THE DEVELOPMENTS WOULD BE COMPLETED AND FULLY LEASED UP BY THE END OF 2022. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF APARTMENTS OF HOW MANY AGAIN, PLEASE?>>214 TOTAL APARTMENTS, 60 SET ASIDE FOR PERSONS WITH INTELLECTUAL OR DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES.>>GOT IT. THANK YOU. I HAVE CARDS FROM JAN STOKELY, CHERYL CLINE, SCOTT FALL CONE, DAVID GRADY, JEFF DARLING AND FRANCISCO VENEZUELA AND WE’LL ASK YOU ALL TO LIMIT YOURSELVES TO A MINUTE.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND I HOPE YOU’LL VOTE TO FUND THE THREE PROJECTS IN UN VIEW VEIL, SANTA CLARA AND PALO ALTO. THE PROJECTS HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF SEVERAL YEARS ARE OTHERWISING AND AND ADVOCACY BY ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES AND EACH CITIES WITH SIGNIFICANT CITY SUPPORT AND EVELOPER COMMITMENT. THE COUNT FUNDING IS WHAT IT’S GOING TO TAKE TO MOVE HE PROJECTS AHEAD TO APPLY FOR STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDING. I’D LIKE TO ASK YOU TO ALSO SIGNAL YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE NEXT $10 MILLION INSTALLMENT ON THE PROMISED $40 MILLION. AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS REQUIRE SELF YEARS LEAD TIME AND IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL FOR OUR ADVOCACY EFFORTS ON BEHALF OF PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES, IF YOU WOULD SIGNAL YOUR SUPPORT OR THAT NEXT INSTALLMENT. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE, COME ON UP. GOOD AFTERNOON, MY NAME IS DAVID GRADY WITH THE COUNTY ON DEVELOPMENTAL SPOTS FOR THE CENTRAL COAST REGION. I JUST WOULD LIKE TO SHARE A QUICK PERSONAL STORY. YESTERDAY I WAS T A MEETING OF SELF ADVOCATES, MEN AND WOMEN WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES AND THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT ALL THE GOOD WORK WE ARE DOING IN THE YOU THE COMMUNITY. GROUP GOES TO A LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE ND TALKS TO STUDENTS ABOUT ELIMINATING THE R. WORD. ANOTHER GROUP WAS WORKING WITH THE MUNICIPAL DEPARTMENT OF A CITY TO REPAIR SIDEWALKS SO THAT PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS COULD MAKE IT TO THEIR PROGRAM WITHOUT RISKING SAFETY. FINALLY A GROUP TALKS THE VOLUNTEER WORK THEY DO AT PARKS TO CLEAN UP THE MESS LEFT ON WEEKENDS. THESE ARE GOOD COMMUNITY EFFORTS OUR FOLKS ARE DOING BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT STORY WAS ERIKA, WHO GAVE A QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT THAT SHE HAD MOVED FROM HER FAMILY’S HOME. SHE’S A MIDDLE AGED WOMAN, FROM HER FAMILY HOME INTO HER OWN APARTMENT. SHE HAS HREE ROOMMATES AND SHE HAS HER OWN ROOM. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO SUPPORT THESE THREE PROJECTS, AS WELL AS THE $10 MILLION FOR NEXT GO AROUND. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THAT YOU CAN. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE. SHERYL CLINE.>>I’M THE BOARD CHAIR OF PALO ALTO HOUSING AND INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF WILTON COURT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND DECISION TO SET ASIDE $40 MILLION TO HELP BUILD AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR ADULTS WITH INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. MEASURE A HAS AND WILL CONTINUE TO HELP OUR MOST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS. PUTTING TOGETHER AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IS A PUZZLE. SO MANY PIECES THAT NEED TO FIT TOGETHER, ALL OF THE PROJECTS BEFORE YOU TODAY HAVE CHALLENGES, FINDING LAND, GETTING COMMUNITY BUY-IN, MOVING THROUGH HE BE TITLEMENTS AND SECURING FUNDING. ONE OF OUR CHALLENGES AT WILTON COURT IS THE SIZE OF OUR LAND. OUR HALF ACRE PARCEL WILL BE DENSELY BUILT TO MAXIMIZE OUR IMPACT. ON JUST 20,000 SQUARE FEET, E WILL GIVE 59 HOUSEHOLDS STABILITY TO THRIVE. WE ARE BUILDING UNDERGROUND PARKING SO THAT WE CAN MAXIMIZE COMMUNITY SPACE AND THE NUMBER OF APARTMENTS. ALL OF THIS DRIVES UP THE COST SO YOUR SUPPORT TODAY MEANS THAT MUCH MORE AND BRINGS US CLOSERS TO SOLVING THE WILTON COURT PUZZLE. THANK YOU.>>JEFF DARLING, AN ANDRIESE REGIONAL CENTER, GOT DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY SERVICES. HERE TO ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP IN MAKING THIS FUNDING AVAILABLE. WE WILL CERTAINLY BE THERE WITH THE USUAL SERVICES AND SUPPORTS PEOPLE NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE HOUSING AS IS ALWAYS THE CASE ON SITES SUCH AS THESE AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SHOWING THE 57 OTHER OUNTIES AND THE 20 OTHER REGIONAL CENTERS HOW WE DID IT HERE.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE, COME ON UP.>>HI, SCOTT FALCO, AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANT WORKING ON WILTON COURT. I WANT TO THANK YOU THE COUNTY FOR YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS PROJECT. I’M IN CHO OF JAN’S REQUEST ABOUT MOVING THE NEXT FUNDING UP SOON SO WE CAN USE THAT FOR OTHER PROJECTS, AS WELL. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER.>>HI THERE, THANK YOU, SUPERVISORS FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK. EVERYBODY ALREADY SAID WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID, THANK YOU. I’M NOT SURE OF THE PLAN BUT THE ONE THING I HOPE IS INCLUDED IS THE OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY ON THE INCLUSION AND SENSITIVITY TO PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES. WE’RE EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW SOME ISSUES WITH CERTAIN RESIDENTS IN AREAS THAT WE’RE DEVELOPING RESIDENTIAL HOMES AND WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THERE’S RESIDENTS WHO BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW OUR OPULATION ARE AGAINST SOMEONE MOVING INTO THEIR COMMUNITY. THE BEST QUALITY OF LIFE THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN THE COMMUNITY, TO BE INCLUDED AND ACCEPTED, BUT WHEN YOU COME UP AGAINST RESIDENTS AND AGAINST NEIGHBORS WHO REALLY DON’T WANT YOU THERE, IT MAKES IT HARDER FOR SOMEONE TO TRANSITION AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE PARENT, FOR THEIR LOVED ONE TO TRANSITION INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD. I HOPE THAT THE PROJECT INCLUDES A INCLUSION PLAN TO EDUCATE THE OTHER RESIDENTS WHO ARE GOING TO BE LIVING THERE. INDIVIDUALS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES HAVE BEHAVIORS THAT SOME PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL HAPPEN.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I BELIEVE OUR FINAL SPEAKER TODAY.>>THANKS TO ALL OF YOU, I APPRECIATE BEING HERE. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE $2.8 MILLION THAT HOPE YOU WILL VOTE FOR. I THINK YOU ALL KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO DO AFFORDABLE HOUSING, ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT FROM PALO ALTO AT THE OMENT. I REALIZE THAT OUR REPUTATION MAY SUFFER FROM THAT LACK THEREOF. I REALIZE THAT I AM THE LAST SPEAKER BETWEEN YOU AND LUNCH, AND THAT IS ALWAYS A 10OUS PLACE TO BE. LET ME SAY THANKS. THIS PARTICULAR POPULATION IS SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE HOUSING. WE FREQUENTLY HAVE SEEN PEOPLE AT THE MIC ABOUT NEEDING HOUSING ESPECIALLY FOR THIS PARTICULAR GROUP THAT WE’RE ADDRESSING TODAY. THANK YOU FOR THIS. I REALIZE THIS WAS A SPECIAL SET ASIDE. WE RECOGNIZE THAT, AND WANT TO THANK YOU ALL. HAVE A GREAT LUNCH.>>THANK YOU, AND COLLEAGUES, JUST A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON THESE ITEMS, IF YOU CAN BEAR WITH ME BEFORE WE GO TO RECENT, AND WORK WITH VOLUNTEERS DOWN STAIRS. LET ME TURN TO KEY LEE AGAIN. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE WILTON COURT PROJECT IS THE ONE PROJECT THAT WE WERE NOT FULLY ABLE TO FUND THE GAP. IS THAT ESSENTIALLY WHERE WE ARE.>>THAT IS CORRECT. COLLEAGUES, SO YOU KNOW, THAT IS IN PALO ALTO IN MY DISTRICT. I’VE HEARD FROM PEOPLE WHO EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT THAT AND A DESIRE TO SEE IF WE COULDN’T DO MORE SOMEHOW. I’VE INDICATED THAT THAT WASN’T POSSIBLE, BECAUSE WITH $10 MILLION, IT REALLY IS A ZERO SUM GAME AND THAT WOULD MEAN GOING TO ONE OF THE OTHER PROJECTS AND SSENTIALLY SHORTING THEM ON THE RECOMMENDED FUNDING, SO I’M SUPPORTING THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION TODAY. HOWEVER, I DID APPRECIATE AND WANT TO CALL OUT THE FACT THAT ON ITEM NUMBER 27, PAGE THREE OF THE REPORT, PACKET PAGE 2758, THAT THE STAFF INDICATES THAT THEY WILL — THAT WHILE THE DEFINITELY ON THATTERS REQUEST FOR THAT PROJECT AND THIS IS A DIFFERENT PROJECT, THE SUN VIEW VEIL BLOCK 15 FROM THIS FOR COUNTY FUNDING IS A MAXIMUM OF $4 MILLION, THE DEVELOPER WOULD STRIFE TO REDUCE THE COUNTY LOAN AMOUNT BY APPLYING FOR ADDITIONAL FINANCING OPPORTUNITIES AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. THAT’S UNDER LEVERAGE. THE REASON I’M HIGHLIGHTING THAT IS BECAUSE THERE IS THE POTENTIAL, HOWEVER MINIMAL IT MAY BE, THAT THE CQUISITION OF ADDITIONAL FUNDS WOULD THEN FREE UP SOME FUNDING THAT MIGHT BE REALLOCATED. AM I GETTING THAT RIGHT?>>THAT IS CORRECT. WHAT I’D LIKE TO DO IS ASK THE CORRECT TO PLEASE DISPLAY THE VOTING PANEL AND I WILL MOVE THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION, BUT WITH TWO AND THANK YOU SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ FOR THE SECOND BUT WITH TWO ADDENDA, STAFF RECOMMENDATION PLUS A DIRECTION TO STAFF IF ADDITIONAL FUNDS ARE FORT COMING BECAUSE THE OTHER 22 PROJECTS DO NOT FULLY DRAW DOWN THE FUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN ALLOCATED, THAT THEY BE REALLOCATED TO WILTON COURT SO THAT WE AREN’T GOING THROUGH THIS AGAIN, THE PROJECT THAT IS THE ONE OF THE THREE THAT CAME UP SHORT. THE ECOND DIRECTION WOULD BE THAT WE DIRECT STAFF TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL SOURCES OF FUNDING IN THE NEXT BUDGET FOR THE SECOND TRUNCH THAT WE FUND. UNLESS WE ADOPT A BUDGET WITH THOSE FUNDS IN IT, THE MONEY’S NOT REAL. WHAT I DID HERE TODAY HOWEVER WAS A EQUEST TO EXPRESS OUR CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR THE PROGRAM. WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY SAID $40 MILLION, WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY SAID LET’S TRY AND DO $10 MILLION A YEAR SO THAT AS PROJECTS COME UP AND THE PROCESS THERE’S FUNDING AVAILABLE, SO I’M TRYING TO DO TWO THINGS HERE, THREE THINGS, MOVE THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION, INDICATE THE USE FOR UNDRAWN FUNDS IF THEY END UP EXISTING, WHICH THEY MAY OR MAY NOT AND ALSO TO DIRECT THE STAFF TO SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS THE SECOND TRUNCH OF FUNDING IN THE PROCESS. I SEE SUPERVISOR CORTESE IS WAITING. HE WANTS ME TO STOP TALKING. THANK YOU. BEFORE WE DISPLAY THE VOTES, SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ DO YOU EVER ANYTHING.>>I JUST WANTED TO GUESS I SUPPORT ALL THREE OF THOSE. I WANT TO ADD, I MEAN BOTH OF THOSE. I WANT TO ADD TWO ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS. ONE IS I WANTED TO ASK STAFF IF WE COULD DO A FORMAL MEETING WITH SARK TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW WE GET OTHER IDD CLIENTS THAT ARE PART OF — THAT MAY NOT BE PART OF SARK BECOMING PATIENTS OR HAVING A SARK RELATIONSHIP AND I’D LIKE THOSE DISCUSSIONS TO BE FORMAL, A FORMAL LETTER SAYING WE’D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT HOW E DEAL WITH THE OTHER 10% OF THE FOLKS THAT WE HAVE ON OUR LISTS TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT SERVICES COULD BE AVAILABLE TO THEM, SO THAT’S ONE REQUEST. THEN THE OTHER IS THAT I APPRECIATE VERY MUCH THE POINT THAT SUPERVISOR SIMIDIAN RAISED ABOUT MONEYS THAT MAY BECOME AVAILABLE. I’M INTERESTED IN IF ANY OF THE PROJECTS DON’T FULLY GET THEIR FUNDING, AT WHAT PERIOD OF TIME DO THOSE FUNDS GET RECONSIDERED FOR DISTRIBUTION. FOR EXAMPLE, IS IT TWO YEARS, IS IT THREE YEARS? I DON’T KNOW IF WE HAVE A TIMELINE ALREADY SET FOR THAT.>>USUALLY, IT’S ABOUT 24 MONTHS.>>OK.>>AFTER SERVED WITH THE COMMITMENT. IT CAN VARY DEPENDING ON THE PROJECT BUT USUALLY IF A PROJECT WERE DEEMED IN FEASIBLE 24 MONTHS AFTER THE BOARD ALLOCATED FUNDING, WE’LL SORT OF BRING BACK RECOMMENDATION.>>SO ONE REQUEST I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS IF YOU COULD DO A 12 MONTH CHECK-IN SO WE DON’T GET TO THE 24th MONTH AND SURPRISE A SUPERVISOR THAT SOMETHING’S NOT BEING BUILT IN THEIR DISTRICT I THINK WOULD BE IDEAL. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. ALL FIVE MEMBERS HAVE VOTED. WE’LL ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS. AND THE MOTION CARRIES 5-0. THANK YOU ALL TO THOSE OF YOU WHO CAME AND WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF THIS EFFORT FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS. COLLEAGUES, THAT MEANS THAT IT IS 12:36, SO WITHOUT OBJECTION, WE WILL RECESS, AND REMINDER TO ALL THAT WE WILL HEAD DOWN TO THE BASEMENT TO EXPRESS OUR THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE HAVING LUNCH EVEN AS WE SPEAK. WE’RE GOING TO BASICALLY BARGE IN ON LUNCH, AND THEN WE’LL BE BACK IN THESE CHAMBERS AT 1:30. THANK YOU AGAIN.>>WE ARE AT 1:30, OUR RECESS IS OVER. WE ARE BACK IN SESSION. WE HAVE ONE ITEM THAT IS A NOT TO BE HEARD BEFORE ITEM AND THAT IS OF COURSE THE STANFORD GUPP ITEM, NUMBER 12. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF ITEMS IT MIGHT MAKE SENSE TO TAKE UP IF BOARD MEMBERS ARE AGREEABLE PARTICULARLY AS I INDICATED THIS MORNING AND I WANT TO REFERENCE IT AGAIN, WE DO HAVE ONE COLLEAGUE WHO NEEDS TO LEAVE AT 4:00 HARD STOP TODAY, SUPERVISOR ELLENBURG FOR RECOGNITION OF THE HOLIDAY. SO SESSION WILL GO FORWARD IF WE HAVE NRESOLVED ISSUES, BUT WE’D LIKE TO TAKE CARE OF AS MANY ISSUES AS WE CAN PRIOR TO THAT TIME OBVIOUSLY AND WE THINK THAT WE HAVE A FEW THAT WE CAN MANAGE RELATIVELY EXPEDITIOUSLY. COLLEAGUES WITHOUT OBJECTION, I’D LIKE TO SUGGEST WE TAKE UP SUPERVISOR ELLENBURGS REFERRAL, ITEM 18. THEN ITEM 22, DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS MONITORING EPORT AND PROVIDE DIRECTION TO STAFF THERE. I THINK THAT CAN BE DONE RELATIVELY EXPEDITIOUSLY. I’M INFORMED THAT THE ISSUES RAISED IN CONNECTION WITH ITEM NUMBER 79 MAY HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED IN THE INTERVENING HOURS SO THAT ONE MIGHT BE A POSSIBILITY TO SIMPLY TAKE OBJECTION ON EXPEDITIOUSLY, AS WELL AND THEY BE HEAD INTO THE STANFORD GUPP ISSUE AT THAT TIME.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SECOND HALF VEST OF SILICON VALLEY ESTIMATE THAT IS ONE UNIN THREE CHILDREN IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY ARE FOOD INSECURE. WE KNOW THAT MANY KIDS AND FAMILIES RELY ON FREE AND REDUCED PRICED SCHOOL MEALS DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR BUT ONLY 13 PERCENT OF THOSE CHILDREN ALSO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SUMMER MEAL PROGRAM TO RECEIVE FEDERALLY FUNDED MEALS. ONE ARRIER TO EXPANDING THE REACH OF THE SUMMER PROGRAM HAS BEEN THE LACK OF RESOURCES TO PROVIDE MEALS FOR HE ADULT CAREGIVERS THAT BRING CHILDREN TO SITES SUCH AS LIBRARIES OR PARK TO SAY RECEIVE THOSE MEALS. THIS PAST SUMMER, THROUGH AN INVENTORY ITEM FUNDED BY OUR BOARD, MORE THAN 6,000 CAREGIVER MEALS WERE PROVIDED TO MORE THAN 20 — IN SUPPORT OF MORE THAN 27,000 CHILDREN’S MEALS. THEY BROUGHT IN NEARLY $100,000 IN FEDERAL REIMBURSEMENT TO OUR COUNTY, PROVIDING CAREGIVER MEALS REFLECTS OUR VALUES AS A COUNTY TO TAKE A WHOLE FAMILY APPROACH, LEVERAGE AS FEDERAL FUNDING AND HELPS FAMILIES STRETCH FAMILY FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS LIKE WICK AND CAL FRESH BEYOND SUMMER MONTHS. I ASK TO LEAP IN AND VOTE ON THE SCREEN. THAT ITEM MAY BE DISPLAYED SO WE CAN NNOUNCE A 5-0 VOTE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THAT TAKES US TO ITEM 22. OFFICE OF CORRECTION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MONITORING REPORT.>>WE HEARD THAT THEY ARE READY TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION N WHICH FINALISTS WHO GO FORWARD WITH NEGOTIATIONS, SO WE’RE HERE TO SEEK DIRECTION FROM THE BOARD.>>THANK YOU. I WANT TO REMIND EVERYBODY WHO THE AD HOC COMMITTEE IS.>>THE AD HOC COMMITTEE IS PRESIDENT SIMIDIAN AND VICE PRESIDENT CHAVEZ.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ANYTHING FROM COUNTY COUNCIL BEFORE I CALL THE SPEAKER?>>NOTHING O ADD. WE’RE AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.>>WHY DON’T WE ASK YOUR STAFF MEMBER TO INTRODUCE HERSELF OR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW HER.>>LAURA — WE HAVE A CARD FROM RON HANSEN. IF YOU’D LIKE TO COME UP.>>GOOD AFTERNOON, SUPERVISORS. MORE THAN THREE YEARS OF COUNTY AND COMMUNITY EFFORTS. EFFORTS ALREADY UNDERWAY BY THE SHERIFF IN THIS COUNTY. WE ANTICIPATE THE ACCELERATION OF THE JAILS CLIMATE TRANSITION FROM CORRECTIVE TO A RESTORATIVE ENVIRONMENT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS. COLLEAGUES, THIS IS ITEM NUMBER 22. THE RECOMMENDED ACTION AS YOU CAN SEE IS BOTH TO RECEIVE THE REPORT AND THEN ALSO TO APPROVE THE SELECTION OF ONE OR MORE OF THE FINALISTS AND AUTHORIZE THE CLERK OF THE BOARD TO COMMENCE CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS. AT THIS TIME ISSUED INDICATE THAT THERE WERE FIVE, WE’LL CALL THEM FINALISTS, WHO WERE SCREENED AT THE STAFF ELF LEVEL BY BOTH THE COUNTY COUNCIL’S OFFICE, I BELIEVE AS WELL AS THE CLERK OF THE BOARD’S OFFICE. THEY PREVED COMMENTARY ON WHAT THEY SAW AS THE STRENGTHS, WEAK INSISTS, ATTRIBUTES, ALL FIVE OF THE PROPOSAL SUBMITTERS WHO WERE FINALISTS WITH THAT THEY BE SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND I AS YOUR SUBCOMMITTEE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW ALL OF THOSE COMMENTS TO READ ALL FIVE SETS OF SUBMISSIONS, AND THEN WE HAD A PRELIMINARY CHOICE IN MIND WHICH WE WANTED TO CONFIRM BY HAVING A FACE-TO-FACE INTERVIEW WITH PRINCIPALS FROM FIRM. BASED ON ALL OF THAT, I BELIEVE SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND I ARE BOTH PREPARED TODAY TO RECOMMEND TO OUR BOARD THE SELECTION OF OIR GROUP, ONE OF THE APPLICANTS, OIR GROUP AND I WOULD ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE VOTING PANEL ON THE SCREEN. I’M HAPPY TO MAKE THAT MOTION SO IT’S THE RECOMMENDED ACTION CONTAINED IN ITEM 22 PACT PAGE 2061 WITH OIR GROUP AS THE DESIGNATE FINALIST AND THAT WOULD BE THE GROUP. COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS OF THE BOARD? SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN.>>ES, PLEASE. JUST A LITTLE 20,000-FOOT VIEW AN WHY THAT SELECTION.>>SURE. I THINK AND I WILL TURN TO SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ IN A MOMENT FOR HER TAKE, AS WELL, I THINK OIR GROUP HAD BOTH — WELL, VERY IMPORTANT FROM THE HEARINGS WE CONDUCTED ABOUT WHAT OVERSIGHT AND MONITORING SHOULD LOOK LIKE WAS THE FACT THAT WHILE WE WANTED THE OFFICE TO PROVIDE OVERSIGHT AND MONITORING FOR BOTH LAW ENFORCEMENT OUT IN THE COMMUNITY BUT ALSO OBVIOUSLY FOR OUR JAILS, SO WE WANTED SOMEBODY WHO COULD DEAL WITH BOTH ACKNOWLEDGING THAT THEY REQUIRED DIFFERENT KINDS OF EXPERTISE, THAT THEY ARE DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES, SO WE WANTED SOMEONE WHO EITHER HAD THOSE, THAT DUAL CAPACITY, IF YOU WILL, EITHER ONBOARD OR THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER PARTNERS WHO WOULD BE PART OF THE EXERCISE. OIR GROUP BROUGHT THAT TO THE EXERCISE. WANTED SOMEBODY WHO HAD A RANGE OF EXPERIENCES THAT WAS RELEVANT TO THE WORK WE WOULD BE ASKING THEM TO DO HERE IN THE COUNTY, AND THEY HAD A DEEP WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE SPECIFICALLY HERE IN CALIFORNIA, ELSEWHERE, AS WELL, BUT SPECIFICALLY HERE IN CALIFORNIA IN COMMUNITIES LARGE AND SMALL AND CONCLUDING PLAYING A LONG TIME ROLL IN THE MONITOR’S OFFICE IN L.A. COUNTY, WHICH IS SORT OF A BIG ONE TO GET YOUR ARMS AROUND, SO WE KNOW THEY’VE BEEN DOWN THIS PATH BEFORE UNDER CHALLENGING CIRCUMSTANCES. WHILE THEY ARE BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, I DON’T MEAN TO BE FLIP WHEN WE SAY WE DO NOT HOLD THAT AGAINST THEM BUT THE FACT THAT THEY HAD SUBSTANTIAL EXPERIENCE, NUMBER OF CLIENTS HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GAVE US SOME REASSURANCE THAT THEY WOULD HAVE FAMILIARITY WITH ISSUES HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ALSO A PRESENCE HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. TO TEASE THAT OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE AND AGAIN SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ WILL SPEAK FOR HERSELF BUT I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY WE WERE BOTH CONCERNED ABOUT THE FACT THAT THERE WOULD BE A REAL PRESENCE HERE IN THE COUNTY. WHAT THAT MEANS AND WHERE THAT MIGHT BE PHYSICALLY LOCATED TO BE DETERMINED, BUT IN THE COUNTY SO THAT WE WEREN’T CONSTANTLY TALKING ABOUT CAN WE GET SO AND SO TO COME UP FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THEY COMMITTED TO THAT GOING FORWARD, AS WELL. SO DEPARTMENT OF EXPERIENCE, RANGE OF EXPERIENCE, FAMILIARITY WITH CALIFORNIA LAW AND THE DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN A SHERIFF’S OFFICE FOR EXAMPLE AND A POLICE CHIEF’S OFFICE, WHICH ARE SIGNIFICANT AND RELEVANT HERE, WILLINGNESS TO MAKE THE COMMITMENT TO ACTUALLY HAVE FOLKS AT THEIR DESKS HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IN THE COUNTY, ALL OF THAT’S THINGS. THE LAST THING I HAD SAY, I THINK THEY HAD SOME CLARITY ABOUT — THEY DEMONSTRATED REAL CLARITY ABOUT UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF SUCH BE A OFFICE MIGHT BE IN A WAY THAT I THOUGHT WAS CRISPER AND MORE WELL DEFINED THAN THE OTHER APPLICANTS.>>THANK YOU, SIR. IF I MAY HEAR FROM SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ, TOO.>>THE ONLY OTHER TWO THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO ADD IS THAT YOU MAY RECALL THAT WHEN AND I KNOW SUSAN, THIS IS, I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE EVEN WATCHED SOME OF THIS AS YOU WERE CAMPAIGNING, BUT AS YOU MIGHT RECALL, WE WERE ASKING FOR VERY BIG ENVELOPE OF SKILL SETS, ONE THAT THEY COULDN’T HANDLE OVERSEEING ENFORCEMENT AND THE OTHER WAS THE JAILS AND WITHIN THE JAILS IN PARTICULAR, THE COMPLICATION THAT WE HAVE WITH MEDICAL AND THE REAL COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP WE HAVE BETWEEN THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT AND HE COUNTY ITSELF IN TERMS OF WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY WHAT IS AND I FELT LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO BRING A LOT MORE EXPERIENCE TO THAT DEBATE OR DISCUSSION AND FRANKLY HELP US THINK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT IN THE FUTURE. THEN THE OTHER THING I’LL JUST ADD IS THAT I DID SEE EARLIER THE SHERIFF AND THE UNDERSHERIFF, BECAUSE I THINK THEY THOUGHT WE WERE HEARING THIS EARLIER THIS MORNING, SO I’M SORRY, WE KIND OF, WE MOVED THIS KIND OF QUICKLY, BUT I’M GLAD TO SEE SO MANY MEMBERS OF THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT HERE. I THINK THAT THE OTHER THING WE FELT LIKE IS THAT THEY HAD A VERY STRONG UNDERSTANDING OF ALL OF THE PARTNERS, BOTH THOSE THAT WERE OUR EMPLOYEES BUT ALSO HOW TO WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY AND INTEGRATE THOSE TWO TOGETHER BETTER.>>THANK YOU, BOTH.>>OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? THEN THE MOTION STANDS. I THINK MR. WILLIAMS AND MISS DOYLE AND MISS TRIES, THE ONE THING I WOULD ADD IS WE UNDERSTAND THE NEGOTIATIONS WILL TAKE TIME BUT WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT IF POSSIBLE, THAT THIS BE WRAPPED UP BEFORE THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR.>>WE WILL TRY.>>GOT IT. OK. ALL RIGHT. LET’S ASK ALL FIVE MEMBERS TO PLEASE VOTE ON THE SCREEN. WE NEED A COUPLE MORE MEMBERS TO CAST THEIR VOTES. ALL VOTES HAVE BEEN CAST. THE MOTION CARRIES 5-0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ THAT’S GOING TO TAKE US TO ITEM NUMBER 79. THIS IS AN ITEM THAT WAS REMOVED FROM CONSENT EARLIER IN THE DAY AT YOUR REQUEST, I BELIEVE.>>YES, THANK YOU. I WANT TO MOVE THAT WE APPROVE ITEM 79 WITH THE DIRECTION THAT THE PREVAILING WAGE FOR GLAZERS BE CONTAINED TO THE SCOPE OF WORK. THIS ADDED LANGUAGE ALLOWS FOR THE COMPANY AND UNION TO RESOLVE A SUBCONTRACTOR ISSUE.>>STAFF, THAT WORKS FOR YOU?>>ALL RIGHT. LET’S GET THE VOTING PANEL UP ON THE SCREEN, AND GOT A MOTION BY SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG AND A SECOND BY SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ. WE’LL ASK ALL FIVE MEMBERS PLEASE VOTE ON THEIR SCREENS. WAITING ON A COUPLE. SUPERVISORS, WHEN YOU’RE READY. SUPERVISOR CORTESE, YOU GOOD TO GO ON THIS ONE. I DON’T WANT TO RUSH YOU IF YOU’RE STILL READING MATERIALS. I UNDERSTAND. ALL FIVE HAVE CAST THEIR VOTES AND WE’LL ASK THE CLERK TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS AND ANNOUNCE THE MOTION CARRIES 5-0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. OK. THAT TAKES US THEN IN THE ODD MATH OF THE DAY BACK TO ITEM NUMBER 12, WHICH IS THE STANFORD GUPP AND WHY DON’T WE ASK THE CLERK IF YOU COULD BRING UP THE CARDS WE HAVE ON THIS, WE’LL GET A OUGH SENSE FOR HOW MANY PEOPLE WE HAVE TO SPEAK. AND PLEASE BEAR WITH ME FOR A MOMENT. COLLEAGUES, I THINK WE’RE PUSHING 40 SPEAKERS. HOW MUCH TIME WOULD YOU LIKE TO ALLOCATE UNDER THOSE SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES? BEAR WITH ME, PLEASE.>>WE ARE AT ITEM NUMBER 12. FORD, I KNOW THAT OUNTY COUNCIL WANTS ME TO ESTABLISH A GOOD RECORD. FORD, ITEM NUMBER 12 IS A PUBLIC HEARING REWARDING THE STANFORD UNIVERSITY GENERAL USE PERMIT. WE HAVE A NUMBER OF ITEMS CONTAINED THAT THEY ARE IN, SO WHAT I’M GOING TO DO IS ASK THE DEPARTMENT STAFF TO FIRST PRESENT A REPORT. WE’LL HEAR THAT REPORT, COLLEAGUES, GOING TO ASK BOARD MEMBERS TO HOLD OFF ON COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS EXCEPT FOR BRIEF CLARIFYING QUESTIONS IF ANY AFTER THE REPORT. ALL OF US, MYSELF INCLUDED WILL HAVE TO TRY TO EXERCISE SOME DISCIPLINE I’M SURE BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT TO UNPACK HERE. AFTER THE STAFF REPORT, WE CAN TO THE APPLICANT FOR UNIVERSITY. WE’LL TAKE ALL OF THE SPEAKERS WHO TURNED CARDS IN. THE PPLICANT UNDERSTANDS THOSE WHO ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE APPLICATION ARE NOT THEN TO REPEAT AS SPEAKERS SUBSEQUENTLY. LET ME JUST CONFIRM WITH MISS GALLEGOS AND MS. WILLIAMS, DO THE SEQUENCE RIGHT?>>THAT’S CORRECT. WE ASK DEPARTMENT STAFF TO PROVIDE US WITH A VERBAL REPORT TO SUPPLEMENT THE TERSE CONTAINED IN OUR AGENDA AND PACKET.>>GOOD AFTERNOON, DEPUTY COUNTY EXECUTIVE. I’M GOING TO INTRODUCE STAFF AND CONSULTANTS WHO WORKED ON THIS PROJECT. THE PLANNING DIRECTOR JACQUELINE ON SHADOW AND ROB EASTWOOD, OUR PLANNING MANAGER. IN THE AUDIENCE, GREG STEFAN ICH. TO MY FAR RIGHT IS MARYIAN MICTUS, OUR UNSUNG HERO, A PLANNER WITH THE M GROUP AND TO MY IMMEDIATE RIGHT, JEFF BRADLEY, THE PRINCIPLE WITH M GROUP AND ALSO THE PROJECT MANAGER FOR THIS PARTICULAR APPLICATION. I WANTED TO ALSO NOTE FORD THAT ALL THE 28 ATTACHMENTS N THIS PACKET ARE — HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED, AND THEY’RE THERE IN THE POCKET AVAILABLE FOR EVERYBODY. AND THEN LASTLY, BEFORE I TURN IT OVER TO MR. BRADLEY, I WANTED TO NOTE THAT THIS IS NOTICED AS A HEARING BECAUSE WE HAVE THE PERMIT APPLICATION BEFORE YOU, BUT AS ALLUDED TO BY THE BOARD PRESIDENT, IT’S A LITTLE IT LIKE A STEADY SESSION INSOFAR AS WE HAVE A REALLY STEADY PRESENTATION. WITH THAT, I’M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. BRADLEY.>>ISSUED JUST INDICATE AT THE LAST WORKSHOP THAT WE HAD COLLEAGUES, WE GOT ORGANIZED TO HEAR FROM PUBLIC AGENCY REPRESENTATIVES FIRST IN THE CONVINCE OF SPEAKERS, HAT WAS THE PRACTICE THAT SEEMED TO WORK WELL AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION, HAVE HAD HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT TODAY. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE THE CARDS IN THE ORDER THAT THE CLERK HAS HANDED THEM TO ME. WE’RE GOING TO TRY TO GET ORGANIZED IF WE CAN DO SO AT THE NEXT MEETING, WHICH IS ON THE 22nd, THE CITY OF PALO ALTO. I WANTED EVERYONE TO KNOW TODAY WHEN THE CARDS CAME IN, THEY CAME IN AND WE ARE GOING TO TAKE THEM IN THE ORDER THEY WERE HANDED TO ME. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME INSERT THAT.>>THANK YOU. SO TODAY, WE WILL REVIEW STANFORD’S GENERAL PERMIT USE APPLICATION. THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THIS ROJECT,ED ADMINISTRATION’S RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE GENERAL USE PERMIT, CHANGES TO THE STANFORD COMMUNITY PLAN AND OVERVIEW OF ITEMS ELATED TO PUBLIC SCHOOL FACILITIES, THE WATER SUPPLY ASSESSMENT THAT HAS BEEN PREPARED FOR THE PROJECT AS WELL AS THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT APPLICATION. WE’LL BEGIN WITH THE GENERAL SE PERMIT APPLICATION THAT STANFORD SUBMITTED BACK IN LATE 2016. THE APPLICATION IS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF 2.275 MILLION SQUARE FEET, NET NEW SQUARE FEET WITH ACADEMIC AND ACADEMIC SUPPORT SPACE ON THE CAMPUS. IN ADDITION, THERE WOULD BE UP TO 2600 STUDENT BEDS, WHICH WOULD COMPRISE 1.225 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF DEVELOPMENT. THAT AMOUNT OF DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE ANTICIPATED TO LAST UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 2035, OR APPROXIMATELY 17 YEARS FROM GUP APPROVAL. THIS IS A TOTAL OF 25 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF NEW SPACE. IN ADDITION, THE APPLICATION INCLUDES SEVERAL OTHER ITEMS, 550 FACULTY AND STAFF HOUSING UNITS, 40,000 SQUARE FEET OF CHILD CARE OR TRIP REDUCTION SPACE AND 50,000 SQUARE FEET OF TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION SERVE SPACE. THIS RATE OF GROWTH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE RECENT HISTORICAL GROWTH RATE OF 1.2% PER YEAR. THIS ALSO REPRESENTS APPROXIMATELY 20% INCREASE IN BUILDING FOR THE AMPUS. EXISTING ACADEMIC AND STUDENT HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN THE STANFORD COMMUNITY PLAN AREA KANSASS OF APPROXIMATELY 16.9 MILLION SQUARE FEET CURRENTLY. WITH THE ADDITION OF 25 MILLION SQUARE FEET PROPOSED, THE TOTAL DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE 20.4 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF BOTH ACADEMIC SPACE AND STUDENT HOUSING. STANFORD PROPOSES CHANGES TO THE LAND USE DESIGNATIONS FOR TWO SITES AS SHOWN ON THIS MAP IN THE BLACK CIRCLES. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE GOLF DRIVING RANGE ON THE LEFT HAS CHANGED FROM ORANGE TO PURPLE. STANFORD PROPOSES TO CHANGE THE LAND USE DESIGNATION OF THIS 20-ACRE SITE CURRENTLY WITH A GOLF DRIVING RANGE FROM CAMPUS RESIDENTIAL MEDIUM RESIDENTIAL TO THE ACADEMIC CAMPUS DESIGNATION. MOVING OVER TO THE CIRCLE ON THE RIGHT, STANFORD PROPOSES TO CHANGE THE LAND USED DESIGNATION OF APPROXIMATELY FOUR ACRES CONSISTING OF PARCELS CURRENTLY DEVELOPED WITH FACULTY AND STAFF RESIDENCES AND A STUDENT HOUSING FACILITY FROM ACADEMIC CAMPUS TO CAMPUS RESIDENTIAL LOW DENSITY TO REFLECT PROPOSED LAND USES. THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS DRIVING SITE WOULD CHANGE FROM CAMPUS RESIDENTIAL TO A1 GENERAL USE. THE FACULTY HOUSING SITES FROM A1 GENERAL USE LOW DENSITY CAMPUS RESIDENTIAL. THE ADMINISTRATION IS SUPPORTIVE OF THESE CHANGES. MOVING NOW ON TO AN OVERVIEW OF THE E.>>R PREPARED FOR THIS PROJECT, IT WAS PREPARED AS WHAT’S KNOWN AS A PROGRAM EIR BECAUSE THIS APPROACH IS APPROPRIATE FOR A SERIES OF ACTIONS THAT CAN E CHARACTERIZED AS ONE LARGE PROJECT. A PROGRAM EIR — THE EIR EVALUATES POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS FROM PROJECTS PROPOSED BY THE UNIVERSITY, INCLUDING THOSE SPECIFIED IN THE GENERAL PERMIT USE APPLICATION, PROPOSED AMENDS TO THE ZONING MAP AND TO THE COMMUNITY PLAN. THE EIR IN ADDITION TO EVALUATING THE PROPOSED PROJECT EVALUATES SIX ADDITIONAL PROJECT ALTERNATIVES, LISTED HERE ON THIS SLIDE. THE HOUSE IN ALTERNATIVE IS IN RESPONSE TO SUBSTANTIAL PUBLIC OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THEGE- IMMEDIATE AREA. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE NO PROJECT INDIVIDUAL SE PERMIT ALTERNATIVE WOULD REQUIRE AN AMENDMENT TO THE COMMUNITY PLAN BECAUSE POLICY GD STATES HAT DEVELOPMENT MAY ONLY BE PERMITTED THROUGH A GENERAL USE PERMIT APPROVED BY THE COUNTY. THE PROPOSED PROJECT AND THE TWO HOUSING ALTERNATIVES HAVE SIGNIFICANT AND UNAVOIDABLE IMPACTS THROUGH THE CULTURAL NOISE AND VIBRATION AND OFF CAMPUS HOUSING CONSEQUENCES CATEGORIES. ALTERNATIVE A ALSO KNOWN AS THE FULL HOUSING ALTERNATIVE HAS SIGNIFICANT AND UNAVOIDABLE IMPACTS IN THE AIR QUALITY CATEGORY. THE FINAL EIR CONCLUDES THAT ALTERNATIVE A IN ADDITION TO THE SIGNIFICANT AND OTHER AVOIDABLE IMPACTS WOULD RESULT IN THREE SIGNIFICANT AND UNAVOIDABLE AIR QUALITY IMPACTS. THE ADMINISTRATION RECOMMENDS THAT THE OARD ADOPT AND CERTIFY THE STANFORD UNIVERSITY 2018 FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT AS COMPLETED AND IN CONFORMANCE WITH SEEK WA REQUIRING 2,172 HOUSING UNITS MAXIMUM OF 2,892 UNITS AND MAXIMUM OF 2,807 STUDENT BEDS. ALTERNATIVE A TOTAL NUMBER OF HOUSING UNITS AND STUDENT BEDS AS IDENTIFIED IS NEEDED TO MEET 100% OF THE HOUSING DEMAND GENERATED BY STANFORD SAYS PROPOSED PROJECT. STATE LAW LISTEN AN ANALYSIS OF LONG TERM WATER SUPPLIES FOR LARGE PROJECTS. BASED ON PUBLIC COMMENTS RECEIVED, THE WATER SUPPLY ASSESSMENT HAS BEEN UPDATE SINCE THE PLANNING MEETING. CHANGES IN RESPONSE TO SEVERE DROUGHT IN THE FUTURE TO THE WATER QUALITY CONTROL PLAN NECESSITATED THIS UPDATE. THE ONCLUSION IS THAT SUFFICIENT WATER SUPPLIES WILL BE AVAILABLE TO SERVE THE CAMPUS UNDER THE PROPOSED PROJECT AND HOUSING ALTERNATIVES A AND B. THE APPROVAL OF THE GENERAL USE PERMIT IS A QUASI JUDICIAL ACTION WITH FINDINGS FOR USE PERMIT AS REQUIRED BY THE COUNTY SAID ORDINANCE CODE. THIS SHOULD LOOK AMILIAR FROM OUR PREVIOUS MEETING WHERE THE ZONING ORDINANCE REQUIRES FOUR MAJOR FINDINGS TO BE MADE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE BEFORE APPROVAL.>>LAST SECT THE BOARD TOOK LEGISLATIVE ACTION WITH RESULTED IN ADJUSTABLE AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UP TO 8% OF VARIABLE MEDIUM INCOME. THE IE FROM 80% TO 120% AMI AT FULL MARKET RATE HOUSING SUPPORTED Y THE STUDY. THE BASIS FOR THIS INCLUDES THE POLICE POWER TO PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH, SAFETY WELFARE.>>HOUSING POLICY EQUIRES THAT NEW DEVELOPMENT. TRANSPORTATION STANDARDS CONTAINED N THE RECOMMENDED COMMISSION OF APPROVAL.>>WELL, AVERAGE DAILY TRIPS, 4 HOURS TRAFFIC COUNT THAT CAPTURES OF THE TRAFFIC ASSOCIATED WITH THE CAMPUS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE 4 HOUR DAY. THE TWO HOUR AND THREE HOUR PEAK HOURS THAT WILL GIVE DATA PRIOR TO PHASE ONE COMMENCING. FOR REVERSE STRIPS, THE PEAK HOUR AND BASELINE SET PRIOR TO PHASE TWO TO ALLOW FOR ALL THE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORIZED TO THE PERMITTED AND CONSTRUCTED AND OCCUPIED. AND AT THE END OF THE PHASE ONE BEFORE PHASE TWO COMMENCES THE REQUIREMENT TO PREPARE A COMMUTE MANAGEMENT PLAN TO ALLOW THE OPPORTUNITY TO DOCUMENT HOW THEY WOULD MEET OR EXCEED THESE REQUIREMENTS. AVERAGE DAILY TRIPS FOLLOWS THE SIMILAR PATTERN WHERE THE BASELINE IS SET PRIOR TO SET TWO. AND THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO PREPARE AN AVERAGE DAILY TRIPS MANAGEMENT PLAN. IN TERMS OF WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE OUT OF COMPLIANCE? FOR COMMUTE TRIPS THE STANDARD IS 1% ABOVE THE BASELINE. THE BASELINE INCLUDES THE 0% CONFIDENCE INTERVAL. STARTING IN PHASE ONE FOR ONE YEAR ONLY. FOR REVERSE COMMUTE TRIPS, THE TRIGGER AMOUNT IS 2% ABOVE THE BASELINE, ALSO INCLUDED THE CONFERENCE INTERVAL STARTING AT PHASE TWO. VIOLATIONS OF THAT WOULD OCCUR IF THE TRAFFIC WAS OVER THE BASELINE AND THE TRIGGER AMOUNT AND THE CONFERENCE INTERVAL FOR TWO OUT OF THREE YEARS. THAT WOULD TRIGGER THE REQUIREMENT FOR THE DEFICIENCY PLAN. ONCE IT IS IN PLACE, ONE ADDITIONAL YEAR ONLY WOULD BE CONSIDERED. FINALLY, TIER THREE, AVERAGE DAILY TRIPS THE BASELINE IS 3% OF THE BASELINE. AND 90% INTERVAL HAS BEEN ADDED AND STARTING THE PHASE TWO BASED ON THE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PLAN. IF THERE IS TWO OUT OF THREE, THAT WOULD BE THE CONSEQUENCE, BUT ONLY WHEN LINKED TO HE CONSEQUENCE FROM A COMMUTE TRIP OR REVERSE COMMUTE TRIP STANDARD AS WELL. THE IF IT EXCEEDS THE BASELINE, WHEN THE REQUIREMENT IS ACHIEVED. AT THE REVERSE TRIPS AT THE END OF PHASE ONE THERE IS A REVERSE TRIP MANAGEMENT PLAN. IF IT VIOLATES TWO OUT OF THREE YEARS, THAT WOULD TRIGGER THE REVERSE EFFICIENCY PLAN. GOING THROUGH PARKING ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE FOR ALL THREE METRICS IN EXCHANGE AND IN RESPONSE FOR BOTH INPUT FROM THE PLANNING COMMISSION REGARDING FEASIBILITY. NUMBER TWO, ALLOW THE TRIP ADJUSTMENTS TO BE USED. MODIFIED CONSEQUENCES TO ALLOW FOR THE INTERMEDIATE STEPS TO ENCOURAGE IMPROVEMENT OVER TIME. FINDING THE NON-COMPLIANCE DEVELOPMENT AT A PUBLIC HEARING RATHER THAN THE PLANNING COMMISSION. WITH AN APPROVED DEFICIENCY PLAN IN PLACE, WHILE AN APPROVE DEFICIENCY PLAN IS IN PLACE WOULD ONLY OCCUR IN THE REVERSE TRIPS STANDARDS AND TRIGGERS. OVER ALL THIS PROVIDES AN APPROACH THAT HAS BEEN RECALIBRATED AND INPUT AT APPROPRIATE TIMES AND PROVIDE MORE OPPORTUNITIES AND TIME TO ENGAGE WITH SOLUTIONS. MOVING ON TO OTHER CONDITIONS. THAT ARE NOT HOUSING OR TRAFFIC. IN TERMS OF THE ACADEMIC GROWTH BOUNDARY, ALL DEVELOPMENT UNDER THE GENERAL USE PERMIT IS DISTRIBUTED WITHIN THE AGB. THE UPDATED ACADEMY POLICY THAT INCREASES THE REQUIREMENT FROM 25 YEARS FROM YEAR 2,000 TO WHEN THIS IS APPROVED. THIS IS ROTECTED BY OPEN SPACE AND ZONE DESTINATION THAT AND INCREASES THE REQUIREMENT FROM 25 YEARS FROM THE YEAR 2000 TO WHEN THIS IS APPROVED. I WOULD LIKE TO POINT UT THAT THERE IS A PLAN THAT HAS NOT BEEN IDENTIFIED FOR THIS PROCESS THAT READS. IF STANFORD IS NOT PROVIDING APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF SERVICES TO ITS RESIDENTS. THIS STUDY WOULD DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATE SERVICE LEVELS FOR EACH SERVICE. LANGUAGE HAS BEEN ADDED TO INDICATE THAT THE STUDIES SHOULD BE BASED ON COMPARABLE MUNICIPAL SERVICES PROVIDED IN CITIES IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY, AND REVIEWED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. TWO CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED FOR DELETION AS CHILD CARE. IS COVERED BY THE STUDY. MOVING NOW TO THE CHILD CARE PLAN. THE COMMUNITY PLAN GUIDES ALL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE PLAN AREA. THERE ARE THREE CATEGORIES OF CHANGES TO THE COMMUNITY PLAN, BACKGROUND TEXT TO UPDATE BACKGROUND INFORMATION. ACCOMMODATE CHANGES PROPOSED BY STANFORD AND UPDATES NECESSARY STATED BY STANFORD’S GENERAL USE PERMIT PLACING. THE DEPARTMENT IS RECOMMENDING THE COUNTY UPDATE AND AMEND SEVERAL AREAS INCLUDING EVISING AND UPDATING KEY STRATEGIES, POLICIES AND PLACING MEASURES CHAPTER ONE DISCUSSES GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT. THE DEPARTMENT PROPOSES THE FOLLOWING CHANGES. DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED BY TH THE P APPLICATION FOR A NEW DEVELOPMENT CAP TO 20.4 MILLION SCARE FEET OF ACADEMY/ACADEMY SUPPORT STUDENT HOUSING. IT WILL MOVE FROM 25 YEARS TO 99 YEARS AND REQUIRE SPECIFIC FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED. WE’LL PROVIDE NOW A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE SCHOOL ISSUES AS RELATED TO THE GENERAL USE PERMIT AND THE COMMUNITY PLAN. SCHOOL FACILITY IMPACT EES OF 4.2 MILLION WOULD ACCRUE TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT UNDER BUILD OUT OF THE GENERAL USE PERMIT BASED ON THE CURRENT FEES AND EFFECT FOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT. THE FEES ARE $3.79 PER-SQUARE-FOOT. PER COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT IS $0.61. IN THIS CASE IT INCLUDES ACTED DEVELOPMENT, ACADEMY SUPPORT SPACE INCLUDING STUDENT HO HOUSING/BEDS. THE FUTURE PUBLIC SCHOOL SITE DESIGNATION, THE ADMINISTRATION IS RECOMMENDING THE RELOCATION OF THE SCHOOL SITE ON THE COMMUNITY LAND USE MAP HERE OUTSIDE OF THE AGP NEAR PAGE MILL ROAD ON THE EAST SIDE OF CAMPUS THERE, THE LIGHT BLUE STAR TO A LOCATION NEAR PAGE MILL ROAD ON THE WEST SIDE OF CAMPUS WITHIN WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE WEST CAMPUS DISTRICT ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE CAMPUS ON THE AGB NEAR SAND HILL ROAD. RELOCATION IS DESIGNATIONTIED POTENTIAL FUTURE PUBLIC SCHOOL SITE. MORE CENTRALLY OCATED TO WHERE STUDENTS WILL LIVE AND WHERE THERE IS CURRENTLY HOUSING DEVELOPMENT. ALONG SAND HILL ROAD. THE RELOCATION DOES NOT MEAN ANY CHANGE OF POLICY RECOMMENDED BY THE PLANNING COMMISSION ON THE SCHOOL SITE. THAT BRINGS US TO THE RECOMMENDS ON THE APPLICATION ITSELF.>>AT THIS TIME I WANTED TO MAKE SOME PREPARATORY REMARKS AS WE ENTER THIS PORTION OF THE PRESENTATION. AS THE BOARD IS AWARE, THE WAY WE ARE PROCESSING THIS DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL IS AS THE STANDARD PRACTICE. IT INVOLVES STAFF CONDUCTING ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSES AND PREPARING CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL AND OTHER ANALYSES IN ORDER TO HELP YOU MAKE THE FINDINGS THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO HAVE DEVELOPMENT THAT IS DETRIMENT TO HEALTH AND SAFETY WELFARE. AND SOME OF THE FINDINGS THAT MR. BRADLEY DEFINED AS ABOVE. THE REVIEW IN PROCESSING DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS, IT’S A REGULATORY PROCESS. IT’S NOT AN NEGOTIATION. AND I MAKE THIS COMMENT BECAUSE DURING THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND IN MANY OF THE COMMENTS THE PUBLIC HAS MADE, THEY HAVE CONFLATED THE USUAL REGULATORY LAND APPLICATION PROCESS, AND I WANTED TO HAVE THAT CLEARLY SET FORTH IN THE PUBLIC RECORD. AS YOU KNOW, THOUGH, LAST YEAR THE BOARD DID APPROVE AMENDING THE ZONE, THAT IS USED AS A TOOL. WE DID RECEIVE A REFERRAL LAST YEAR IN SEPTEMBER TO AUTHORIZE US TO POSSIBLY EXPLORE THIS WITH RESPECT TO THIS APPLICATION. WE DID, IN FACT, ON OCTOBER 16TT BACK AND DID PRESENT A PROPOSED PROCESS WE WERE ASKED TO IDENTIFY WHAT A NEGOTIATION PROCESS WOULD HAVE AS SOME OF ITS FEATURES. WHAT I WANT TO COMMUNICATE TO THE BOARD IS, IN FACT, WE DID ENDEAVOR TO ADHERE TO WHAT WAS SET FORTH, INCLUDING THE BOARD HAVING ESTABLISHED THE AD HOC COMMITTEE. WE HAVE PRESENTED MONTHLY SPORTS TO HULETT ON THE DISCUSSIONS. I JUST SUBMITTED YESTERDAY MY TENTH REPORT. WE HAVE ENDEAVORED TO HAVE A PUBLIC PROCESS SO IN FACT, BACK IN NOVEMBER 29TH, WE HAD WHAT WE DESCRIBED AS A COMMUNITY LISTENING MEETING TO ENTERTAIN FROM THE PUBLIC WHAT THEY THOUGHT WOULD BE COMMUNITY BENEFITS THAT THEY THOUGHT WOULD BE WORTHWHILE. WE DID CONDUCT A MEETING ON NOVEMBER 30TH WITH STANFORD TO ESTABLISH THE GROUND RULES FOR NEGOTIATION. THEN LATER IN MARCH, MARCH 14THN HALL MEETING THAT WAS ATTENDED BY BOTH SUPERVISORS SIMITIAN AND CHAVEZ, WHERE AGAIN WE TRIED TO UPDATE THE COMMUNITY WITH RESPECT TO THE STATUS OF THESE CONVERSATIONS. I DID TRY TO ADD APPROPRIATE MILESTONES AND PROVIDE SOME UPDATES. LET ME PIVOT TO WHAT I THINK IS MORE IMPORTANT IN THIS CONVERSATION, WHICH IS THE SUBSTANCE. STANFORD UNIVERSITY DID PROVIDE TWO OFFER LETTERS, ONE IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR, AND ONE ON JUNE 24TH, RIGHT BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION TOOK IT’S LAST ACTION. AND I’M GOING TO TURN OVER THE PRESENTATION IN A MOMENT BACK TO MR. BRADLEY, WHERE HE’LL PROVIDE STAFF ANALYSIS OF THEIR OFFER LETTER, BOTH IN TERMS OF THE BENEFITS THAT THEY ARE OFFERING IN THE LETTER, AND ALSO THE CONCESSIONS THAT WOULD BE REQUIRED IN EXCHANGE FOR THOSE BENEFITS. I THINK THE TAKE AWAY IS THAT FRANKLY THE COUNTY NEGOTIATION TEAM IN STANFORD WERE VERY FAR APART. AND THIS WILL BE ELIMINATED BY THE PRESENTATION.>>BEFORE WE GO TO THE PRESENTATION, LET ME JUST ASK THE APPLICANT TO PERHAPS HUDDLE. WE DO HAVE A CARD FROM CATHERINE PALTER THAT SAYS APPLICANT PRESENTATION. WE’VE ALSO GOT CARDS FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE APPLICANTS TEAM INCLUDING JEAN McCOWN, WHITNEY McNAIR, AND ELLEN FROM ONE OF THE CONSULTANTS. AS I INDICATED EARLIER WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU USE YOUR TEN MINUTES TO BUNDLE THOSE UP. THAT’S THE PLAN IF YOU WANT TO PUT YOUR HEADS TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR PRESENTATION IS ORGANIZED WITHIN THAT TEN MINUTES. I WANT TO GIVE YOU THAT REMINDER AT THIS TIME. AGAIN, ANYONE WHO IS A STANFORD AFFILIATE OF ANY OTHER SORT, WHETHER YOU’RE FACULTY, STAFF, STUDENT, ALUM, WHATEVER, PERFECTLY WELCOME TO SPEAK FOR THE MINUTE AND A HALF THAT WE’VE GOT SET ASIDE. BUT THE APPLICANT TEAM WE ASK THAT YOU COORDINATE AND BE IN THAT TEN-MINUTE PERIOD. AS IS THE CUSTOM OF OUR BOARD. LET ME GO BACK TO STAFF AND THE CONSULTANTS. MR. BRADLEY, YOU’RE UP.>>THANK YOU. THE NEXT SLIDE. LOOKING AT THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT OFFER LETTER SUMMARY TABLE, THAT YOU SEE HERE PREPARED BY THE UNIVERSITY, IT’S CLEAR THAT NEARLY ALL THE ITEMS DESCRIBED ARE, IN FACT, PART OF THREE DIFFERENT THINGS. PART OF NGOING EFFORTS TO ADDRESS HOUSING NEEDS. THAT WOULD INCLUDE MIDDLE PLAZA PROJECTS. THE FIRST ONE LISTING 2600 BEDS FOR $1.41 BILLION IS PART OF THE PROPOSED GUP. WE’RE ALREADY REQUIRED BY THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF APPROVAL, WHICH WOULD BE THE 1,307 WORKFORCE UNIT. THE BENEFIT LISTED AS THE TDM PROGRAM THAT NEED TO COMPLY WITH THE EXISTING TRIPS STANDARD. THIS LEAVES ABOUT $30 MILLION FOR TRANSPORTATION, AND $138 MILLION FOR SCHOOLS, WHICH REDUCES THE TOTAL FROM $4.7 BILLION WITH A “B” TO $268 MILLION WITH AN “M.” REZENNEDING THE AFFORDABLE HO HOUSING ORDINANCE, THE PROPOSED CHANGES AND CONDITIONS AND COMMUNITY PLAN WOULD RESULT IN LOSS OF APPROVAL THAT WOULD UNDER CUT THE FINDINGS NEEDED TO BE MADE AS WELL AS ELIMINATE IMPORTANT COMMUNITY PROTECTIONS. AS DISCUSSED IN YOUR LAST ATTACHMENT IN YOUR PACKAGE, THE PUBLIC RECORD FOR HE ESCONDIDO VILLAGE IS CLEAR FOR STUDENT HOUSING DEMAND. THE DOCUMENTED NEEDS IS FOR NET NEW WORK HOUSES. MOVING ON TO MIDDLE PLAZA, STAFF ADDRESSES EXISTING DEMAND GOING BACK TO THE DEVELOPMENT OCCURRING UNDER THE EXIS EXISTING 2002 USE PERMIT. THE HOUSING AND RECOMMENDED FOR FUTURE DEMAND FROM NET NEW DEVELOPMENT. STANFORD IS PROPOSING TO PROVIDE 100% OF THE DOCUMENTED NEEDS FROM 2172 UNITS. WHICH GOOD NEWS. HOWEVER, COUNT STAFF OUND THAT HALF CREDIT, AND BUILD TO ADJUST EXISTING DEMAND. THE MIDDLE PLAZAS ALONG WITH SMALLER PROJECTS IS ACCOUNTED FOR AS EXISTING HOUSING TO SERVE EXISTING HOUSING NEEDS. FOR THESE REASONS STAFF BELIEVES THE TRUE NUMBER OF NET UNITS OFFERED BY STANFORD IS 1307 AND WILL BE USED FOR COMPARISON PURPOSES. THE PROPOSAL IS 39% LESS THAN THE AMOUNT AS DOCUMENTED IN THE APRIL 2018 NEXUS STUDY IN TERMS OF AFFORDABLE AND MARKET-RATE UNITS. THE PROPOSAL PROVIDES 60% OF THE AMOUNT NEEDED IN THE NEXUS STUDY UNDER THE DA OFFER THE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS WOULD BE ROLLED BACK TO THE STANDARD SET IN THE 2000 GENERAL USE PERMIT, WHICH FOCUSED SOLELY ON PEAK HOUR, PEAK DIRECTION TRAFFIC. IN CONCLUSION, UNDER THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT AGREEMENT, AND RECOMMEND DENIAL OF THE AGREEMENT.>>LET ME EXPAND ON THIS COMPONENT. THERE WERE AN OH COUPLE OF PLANNING COMMISSIONERS WHO WERE INTERESTED IN SEEING THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT AS PART OF THIS PACKET. BUT NOT WITH STANDING THAT DESIRE WE DON’T HAVE ONE. OUR RECOMMENDATION IS AS WELL AS NOW TO THE BOARD IS THAT WE APPROVE THIS PERMIT WITH THE CONDITIONS AND MITIGATIONS AND OTHER OTHER RECOMMENDED ACTIONS THAT ARE BEFORE YOU TODAY AND TREAT THIS AS A–AS OUR TYPICAL LAND USE APPLICATION.>>LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT STEPS, WE HAVE TWO MORE MEE MEETINGS.>>CAN WE HOLD QUESTIONS? I KNOW YOU SAID AT THE BEGINNING THERE WERE A COUPLE OF TIMES THEY ASKED FOR QUESTIONS.>>YES, THANK YOU. I THINK WE ONLY HAVE A FEW MORE PAGE OR TWO AT MOST. ONE PAGE. WHY DON’T WE WAIT A MOMENT AND I’LL LITERALLY COME DOWN THE ROW IN ORDER. AND AGAIN ASK THAT THEY BE RELATIVELY BRIEF SO WE CAN GET TO THE PUBLIC. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE APPLICANT GETS HEARD WHILE ALL FIVE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD ARE HERE AND THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC GET HEARD AS WELL. BACK TO YOU, AND THEN.>>SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 22ND. THE CITY HALL BUILDING. AFTER THAT, WE HAVE THE PLANS THE THIRD OF THREE PUBLIC HEARINGS. TODAY IS THE FIRST PUBLIC HEARING. OCTOBER 22ND WILL BE THE SECOND PUBLIC HEARING. NOVEMBER 5TH WILL BE THE THIRD AND FINAL PUBLIC HERE, HERE AT BOARD CHAMBERS AT 11:30.>>ALL RIGHT. QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD. AND AGAIN IF WE CAN KEEP THEM RELATIVELY BRIEF IN CLARIFYING AND THEN GO TO THE APPLICANT, GO TO THE PUBLIC, AND THEN COME BACK FOR MORE QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS AND DISCUSSION BY THE BOARD. TIME PERMITTING. MS. ELLENBERG. QUESTIONS?>>YES, A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, THANK YOU, ABOUT THE PROCESS. HOW MANY TIMES DID THE AD HOC COMMITTEE MEET WITH THE STANFORD APPLICATION TEAM? YOU MENTIONED THE NOVEMBER MEETING. WAS THERE ANOTHER MEETING AFTER THAT?>>THAT’S CORRECT. THERE WAS A MEETING IN NOVEMBER TO ESTABLISH GROUND RULES. AND THEN THERE AS A MEETING SCHEDULED FOR, I BELIEVE APRIL 30TH, THAT WAS SUBSEQUENTLY CANCELED.>>NOTHING BETWEEN NOVEMBER AND APRIL, THOUGH?>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>LET ME–>>FORGIVE THE INTERRUPTION. THAT IS THE CASE BECAUSE THERE WAS NO LONGER A PROCESS AFTER THE INITIAL MEETING WHILE WE WERE WAITING OR THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. BY THE TIME THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL WERE PRODUCED, WE RAN INTO THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WERE DESCRIBED. EXCUSE THE INTERRUPTION, BUT WE WERE ALL WAITING FOR THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME.>>GOT IT, THANK YOU.>>THAT WAS MY COMMENT AS WELL. WAS THAT STAFF, IT TOOK US AWHILE TO FINALIZE THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. THOSE WERE NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH THE REGULATORY BASELINE, AND THEREFORE, UNDERSTAND WHAT TRULY FELL BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY BENEFITS. THAT’S WHY IT WAS SO IMPORTANT TO HAVE IT DOWN FIRST.>>I ONLY WANT TO SK ONE OTHER QUESTION NOW, AND I’M SURE I’LL HAVE MORE LATER AFTER HEARING THE PUBLIC AND APPLICANT. THE LETTER RECEIVED ON THE 24THD HOC COMMITTEE PERCEIVE THAT AS AN OPENING SALVO TO BEGIN NEGOTIATIONS, OR A FINAL AFTERNOON.>>I DON’T BELIEVE THAT THE COUNTY TEAM CONSTRUED THAT AS A FINAL OFFER TO THE LAST QUESTION. IT WAS ONE OF TWO LETTERS THAT WERE OFFERED TO US AND THEN WE CONVENED AS A TEAM AND ANALYZED AND CONCLUDED THAT IT WAS NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THE LETTER OFFERED IN JANUARY. IT WAS OFFERED JUST AS WE WERE ABOUT TO FINALIZE ACTIONS AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION. SO AT THAT TIME WE PRESENTED THE ANALYSIS THAT WE PRESENTED TO YOU TODAY. TO SHOW THEM OUR RESPECT TO THAT, AND THEN YET AGAIN MADE THE POINT THAT WE DON’T HAVE AN AGREEMENT.>>THERE WERE NO BEGINNING NEGOTIATIONS.>>AT THAT TIME, CORRECT.>>A SLIGHT CLARIFICATION IF I MAY. SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND I, AND TIMES WE’RE FORMERLY THE AT I WOULDN’T WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THAT SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND I HAD NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY THE UNIVERSE OR IN TOUCH WITH THEM. AS SOME OF YOU KNOW, AS RECENTLY AS SEPTEMBER 11TH, THE TWO OF US MET IN THIS BUILDING WITH FIVE REPRESENTATIVES FROM FANNED FORD UNIVERSITY SPECIFICALLY AT THEIR REQUEST. EVEN THOUGH THAT WAS NOT TECHNICALLY A MEETING OF THE.>>IF.>>SUPERVISOR.>>LOOPING THOSE SAME LINES. I APPRECIATE THE QUESTIONS FROM THE I WENT BACK FTER THE LAST DISCUSSION THAT WE HAD HERE WHERE THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE INDICATED IN OH MANY WORDS, IF YOU WANT TO PROTECT THE CARDS, THAT’S FINE. THAT STAFF WAS NOT CHARGED WITH NEGOTIATING. THE HE SORT OF JUST HE WRIT RATED YOU AND FANNED FORD INSTITUTED NEGOTIATIONS.>>I DIDN’T SAY THAT CONSTITUTED NEGOTIATIONS.>>WHY DON’T YOU CHARACTER WHAT YOU JUST SAID AGAIN.>>I JUST WANT TO–>>WE CAN BRING OUT THE VIDEO.>>I WANT TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT I DID OR DIDN’T SAY.>>SUPERVISOR ELLENBERG ASKED IF THERE WERE ANY NEGOTIATIONS WITH STANFORD. THEN SHE SAID AFTER THE RESPONSIBILITIES, THEREFORE THERE WERE NONE. I THOUGHT YOU CORRECTED THE RECORD AND SAID THERE WERE SOME BECAUSE YOU AND SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ MET WITH THE STANFORD FOLKS. I’M TRYING TO CLARIFY BEFORE I MOVE ON TO WHAT I SAY HERE.>>AS I SAID A FEW MINUTES AGO, I WAS CLARIFYING THERE WERE OCCASIONS WHEN SUBSEQUENT TO THE CANCELLATION–THE EXPIRATION OF THE GROUND RULES. THE GROUND RULES EXPIRED. THERE WAS NO MORE ABILITY ABSENT NEW GROUND RULES TO CONTINUE TO HAVE THE MEETINGS, AS YOU HEARD FROM STAFF THE MEETINGS WITH THE AD HOC COMMUNITY AND THE UNIVERSITY WERE SUSPENDED. MS. GALLEGOS. I’M LOOKING TO YOU TO CONFIRM THAT THAT IS RIGHT. I WAS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAD IN THE RECORD FULL DISCLOSURE. I DIDN’T WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THAT SUPERVISORS CHAVEZ AND I HAD NOT BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THE UNIVERSITY. THEY REACHED OUT AND ASKED TO TO MEET WITH US AND IN SOME INSTANCES TALKED TO US BY HONE. I DON’T WANT TO SPEAK FOR SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ. WE CERTAINLY DID MEET WITH THEM BUT NOT AS AD HOCKEY COMMUNITY. BUT I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT ABOUT PEOPLE NOT TO BE CONFUSED IN OUR CONVERSATIONS. JUST TRYING TO PROVIDE FULL DISCLOSURE, SUPERVISOR. BACK TO YOU.>>I APPRECIATE THAT CLARIFICATION. I’M TRYING TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT BECAUSE I DIDN’T EXPECT THE RESPONSE FROM THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE LAST TIME. I WASN’T PREPARED WITH THE MINUTES AND THE ACTUAL MOTION THAT SET THIS PROCESS INTO MOTION BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ON A UNANIMOUS VOTE, AS I RECALL. IN ANY CASE, THE MINUTES, ACCORDING TO THE CLERKS, SAY THAT THE RECOMMENDATION WAS APPROVED, AND THE OCTOBER–I’M SORRY, AT THE OCTOBER 16TH BOARD MEETING, ACCORDING TO THE REPORT TO THE HULETT COMMITTEE THERE AFTER, BY THIS SAME STAFF, IT SAYS AT THE OCTOBER 16TH BOARD MEETING THE BOARD AUTHORIZED COUNTY STAFF TO ENTER INTO A NEGOTIATION PROCESS AND APPOINT TWO MEMBERS OF THE BOARD TO SERVE AS AN AD HOC CAN COMMITTEE PROVIDING GUIDANCE TO COUNTY STAFF. ONE WAS DIRECTION FROM THE ADMINISTRATION REPORT MONTHLY TO HULETT AND TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH STANFORD. THAT’S THIS REPORT. I DIDN’T SEE ANYWHERE IN THERE OR IN THE ACTUAL MOTION OR THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION THAT E APPROVED ANY AUTHORIZATION FOR THE AD HOC COMMITTEE TO NEGOTIATE DIRECTLY, OR TO SEIZE AND DESIST NEGOTIATIONS WITHOUT COMING BACK TO THE BOARD. THAT’S MY TAKE ON IT. AND MUCH LIKE LAST TIME WE DISCUSSED THIS ITEM, I’M STILL IN SEARCH OF HOW DID NEGOT NEGOTIATIONS SOUTHEAST AND DESIST WITHOUT A REPORT BACK TO THE BOARD? I WENT BACK TO THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION. AM WITH THE CLARIFICATION THAT YOU WANTED A TWO-PERSON AD HOC COMMITTEE. IF YOU AND SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ WAS PART BUT YOU MOVED THE RECOMMENDATION. I AGREE, TO THAT PARTICULAR TIME, OCTOBER 16TH, WAS A GOOD ONE. I DON’T REGRET MY VOTE AT ALL. BUT IT SAYS THAT THIS IS WHAT THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. AM AM IF THE BOARD ELECTED TO PROSE THERE ARE A SERIES OF NEGOTIATING POINT. IT’S CALLED CLAYFICATION OF EXPECTATION. HOUSING AND AND–EXPRESS WILLIS TO INCLUDE OTHER BENEFITS AND RESPONSE TO AND EFFECT THE JURISDICTION IN THE GUP PROCESS. AM.>>DEVELOPMENT NOT COVERED BY THE CONDITIONS OF THE APPROVAL. EXPRESS WILLINGNESS TO AM AM AM THE TIMELINE TO ALLOW NEGOTIATIONS TO PROCEED AND EXPRESS A WILLINGNESS TO MODIFY THE CONDITIONS BY HICH STANFORD WOULD BRING IN NUMBER. THE OFFER IS COP TIN GENTS OFF BEYOND THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT. MY QUESTION IS WERE ANY OF THOSE NEGOTIATING POINTS TENDERED TO STANFORD, AND DID THEY RESPOND BY LETTERS RECEIVED IN HE NEGOTIATION? I’M HEARING THAT THEY DIDN’T OFFER THE I’M HEARING THAT THERE WERE OTHER ITEMS BY PI IS THERE WRITING THAT DATE BACK TO THEM? WITH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. AT A POINT IN TIME THAT I MISSED? I’M TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW YOU COUNTER OFFERED, OR IF YOU COUNTER OFFERED BASED ON THE DIRECTION THAT THE BOARD GAVE ORIGINALLY ON OCTOBER 16TH.>>SO THE BOARD DID FORM AN AD HOC COMMITTEE, AND THE COUNTY TEAM LOOKED TO THAT AD HOC COMMITTEE FOR DIRECTION. THAT WAS THE WAY THAT WE UNDERSTOOD IT. IT WAS STRUCTURED THAT WE WOULD GET OUR GUIDANCE FROM THAT AD HOC COMMITTEE. WE MET REGULARLY. IN FACT, I’M GRATEFUL FOR THE TIME OF THE SUPERVISORS. WE REGULARLY MET WEEKLY IN RESPONSE OFFICERS WERE PROVIDED, WE DID CONVENE AS A GROUP TO ANALYZE THOSE. PRIOR TO THAT SECOND LETTER, THE COUNT HAD COMMUNICATED TO STANFORD THAT IF IT WANTED TO REENTER INTO EGOTIATIONS, THAT THERE WERE TWO CONDITIONS THAT WE FELT THAT WERE IMPORTANT THAT THEY MEET. ONE IS TO IF IT WOULD BE TRANSFERRED WE FOUND FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, THE COMMENTS MADE IN PRIVATE MEETINGS DIDN’T NECESSARILY MATCH COMMENTS MADE IN PUBLIC MEETINGS. TO ELIMINATE THAT, WHETHER TRUE OR NOT BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT PERCEPTIONS, WHETHER IT’S TRUE OR NOT, WE FELT THE PEST WAY IS TO IF IF SECONDLY, WE WOULD A LOT THE PHYSICAL. AND TO BE EQUAL TO OR BETTER THAN THAT DEAL, AND THAT NOT BE CONTINGENT ON A DA BUT BE CONTINGENT ON SOMETHING ELSE. SO WE DIDN’T GET A RESPONSE BACK. IF A EXPRESSING ITS WILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT THOSE TWO CONDITIONS AND SO AM THE NEGOTIATION AND CANCELED THIS AP APRIL 23RD MEETING. BUT THERE WERE MANY COMMUNICATIONS OURING BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND STANFORD.>>OKAY. I HAVEN’T SEEN ANY DOCUMENT IN MY PACKET THAT IS A RESPONSE TO THE DOCUMENTS THEY SUMMITED. SO I’M CONCERNED ABOUT THAT. AS TO THEIR WILLINGNESS, AND I’M ASSUMING WHAT YOU’RE ALLUDING TO OR IMPLYING IS THAT THERE NEEDED TO BE AN OPEN PANS PARENT PUBLIC PROCESS, AND STANFORD WAS UNWILLING TO PARTICIPATE. AS PART OF THE MOTION THAT SUPERVISOR SU S SIMITIAN MADE, E PUBLIC WORKSHOP NEAR STANFORD UNIVERSITY. IT DOESN’T SAY CONTINGENT UPON THEM SHOWING UP. INVITES STAFF AND ELECTED OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVES FOR CITIES OF TANFORD TO ATTEND ND DOES PUBLIC, AND TO RECEIVE INPUT N DRAFT TERMS. WHICH I DON’T THINK HAPPEN BASED ON ISTENING TO. AT THE POINT IN TIME THEMENT INVITE STAFF AND ELECTED OFFICIALS FROM CITIES NEAR STANFORD IN A SECOND MEETING TO RECEIVE INPUT AT A POINT IN TIME IN THE NEGOTIATIONS AT WHICH PROPOSED BENEFITS CAN BE IDENTIFIED. FIVE, CONDUCT A THIRD FINAL AGREEMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE EMR MITIGATIONS WHICH ARE JUST COMING ON, AND RECOMMEND–I ADDED THAT–AND RECOMMEND ADDITION OF APPROVAL. THE CONCLUSION, PRIOR TO THE PLANNING MISSION PUBLIC HEARING ON THE 2018. DID THE THIRD PUBLIC WORKSHOP HAPPEN BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING WITH OPPOSED FINAL DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TERMS AND COMMUNITY BENEFITS? THAT DID NOT HAPPEN, DID IT? I’M JUST READING WHAT THE BOARD ORDERED UP. TO MY NOWLEDGE THE BOARD HAS NOT VOIDED THIS DIRECTION. I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF IT HAPPENED OR NOT. THAT’S WHAT I’M ASKING.>>YOU ARE CORRECT. THAT’S THE PROCESS WE OUTLINED IN THE OCTOBER 16TH REPORT. WE DID ADHERE TO THAT PROCESS UP TO THE POINT WHERE WE NO LONGER HAD THE ABILITY TO PROCEED. BY THAT I MEAN WE DID HAVE THE INITIAL MEETING NOVEMBER 29TH, WHERE WE HAD A COMMUNITY LISTENING MEETING. THEN IN LIEU OF HAVING A MEETING THAT IS DIFFICULT TO GET ALL OF THE CITIES TOGETHER IN ONE MEETING, WE INSTEAD ASKED M MR. BRAWLLY TO MEET WITH ALL OF THE VERY WELL HAVEN’T JUST DICTIONS, WHICH HE ASK. AND THEN WE MOVED TO THE POINT WHERE WE DIDN’T HAVE THE BENEFIT DEVELOPMENT TO SHOWCASE. THAT’S WHERE THE PROCESS STOPPED.>>OKAY, MY CONCERN IS, AND I’M GOING TO SKIP OVER PARAGRAPH SIX, WHICH TALKS MORE ABOUT COMMUNITY BENEFITS BEING DONE IN CONJUNCTION AND APPROPRIATE TIMING TO THE EIR, WHICH I TEND TO REMEMBER WAS A MAJOR PROVIDE PERIODIC REPORTS TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION, WHICH YOU SAID YOU’VE DONE. AND FULL BOARD. FULL BOARD. A REGULAR-SCHEDULED HEARINGS. YOUR WORDS. THROUGHOUT THE DEVELOPMENT PUBLIC INPUT PROCESS. WHEN DID YOU SAY THE PROCESS TERMINATED? WHEN DID YOU SAY THE PROCESS TERMINATED? I’M LOOKING FOR A DATE. IT STARTED IN OCTOBER WHEN WE ADOPTED THIS RECOMMENDATION THAT I JUST READ. WHEN DID IT STOP?>>TWO COMMENTS.>>I’M JUST ASKING FOR A DATE SO I CAN CONTINUE. WHAT DATE?>>SO MAY I MAKE THE OTHER COMMENT.>>I’M HAPPY TO MAKE WHATEVER COMMENTS YOU WANT. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT DATE THIS PROCESS, AFTER OCT OCTOBER 16, 2016.>>THE PROCESS DIDN’T DETERMINATE, IT WAS SUSPENDED APRIL 15TH. AND THEN MY SECOND COMMENT SIMPLY IS THAT YOU’RE RIGHT, STAFF REPORT SAID REPORT TO THE BOARD. BUT WE SAW THAT AS BEING PREFERRED AT THAT MEETING NO, REPORT TO HULETT. THAT’S WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO ADHERE TO.>>IT SAYS REPORT TO HULET AS WELL. BUT IT SAYS TO REPORT TO THE FULL BOARD. AND YOU’RE TELLING ME THAT AFTER WE ORDERED THIS WORK UP, THAT IN OCTOBER 2018, IN APRIL OF 2019 YOU CREASE AND DESIST ON NEGOTIATIONS. IT IS NOW OCTOBER 2019. TO MY KNOWLEDGE THIS IS THE FIRST REPORT TO THE FULL BOARD A YEAR LATER. BUT MORE TROUBLING, SIX MONTHS AFTER YOU CEASE AND DESIST THE NEGOTIATIONS, TODAY YOU’RE COMING AND ASKING FOR US TO REJECT A PROPOSAL FROM STANFORD DESPITE THE FACT THAT IT FOLLOWED HE DIRECTION OF THE BOARD, YOU CERTAINLY HAVE NOT APPRISED THIS BOARD MEMBER BECAUSE THIS IS MY ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO CONVENE ON THIS SUBJECT. I’M NOT ON THE HULET COMMITTEE OR THE AD HOC COMMITTEE. I DON’T WANT TO MISCHARACTERIZE WHAT MS. ELLENBERBERG SAID, BUT WHAT SHE SAID IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE THERE WAS A BOARD OF RESPONSE TO STANFORD’S NEGOTIATED ATTEMPTS TO NEGOTIATE A PROPOSAL WITH US, TO THEIR OFFER. AND I’M TROUBLED BY THAT. AND MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE I AM BIASED IN SOME WAY. IN ALL OF MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER PUBLIC AND PRIVATE, WHEN SOMEONE WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS, IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE AGENTS AND PRINCIPALS TO COMMUNICATE THAT OFFER, TO ALLOW THEM TO APPROVE IT, REJECT IT, OR COUNTER OFFER. YOU’RE DOING THAT TODAY, A YEAR AFTER, FOR THE FIRST TIME. A YEAR AFTER NEGOTIATIONS WERE SUPPOSED TO COMMENCE. THAT TROUBLES ME. I DON’T THINK IT’S OKAY, AND I’LL INCLUDE HERE, I DON’T THINK IT’S OKAY FOR STAFF, FOR THE ADMINISTRATION TO MAKE A UNILATERAL DECISION, DISPENSE WITH THE DIRECTION OF THE BOARD WITHOUT COMING BACK TO THE BOARD AND AT LEAST LETTING US KNOW THAT IT IS YOUR PREFACE TO DO SO. HAD YOU COME BACK IN APRIL AND EXPLAINED WHATEVER WAS GOING ON, I DON’T KNOW HOW I WOULD HAVE VOTED ON THAT DAY OR HOW I WOULD HAVE I DON’T KNOW. PLEASE CONTINUE, PLEASE DISCONTINUE, I DON’T KNOW. BUT I WAS DENIED THAT OPPORTUNITY. NOW WE’RE IN THE BIGGEST LAND-USE DECISION MAKING PROCESS SINCE I’VE BEEN HERE. AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE UP I MIT NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE UP THE LOST OPPORTUNITY COST, THE I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT OPPORTUNITY COST IS, BUT IT FEELS LIKE A LOST OPPORTUNITY TO WEIGH IN ON A TIMELY BASIS. I NI APOLOGIZE. I WILL KEEP MY REMAINING COMMENTS TODAY TO A MINIMUM, IF I MAKE ANY AT ALL. WE’LL LEAVE IT THAT THAT. I DO PREACH YOUR I HOPE THAT IF NOTHING ELSE IT EXPLAINS MY CONCERNS AND MY FRUSTRATION WITH THE POSITION THAT I FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN PUT IN YOU WANT IN IN TERMS OF THE INABILITY TO R–RESPONDTO THE CONSTITUENTS OE ELSE.>>SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN, CLARIFYING QUESTIONS AT THIS POINT? SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ?>>THANK YOU.>>I WANT TO START WHERE SUPERVISOR C CORTESE EFT OFF, AD LET ME SAY TO MY COLLEAGUES. IN THIS INSTANCE I’M TRULY TROUBLED BY, SUPERVISOR CORTESE, I FOR ONE, AND I THINK THIS IS TRUE FOR SUPERVISOR SIMITIAN, FULLY INTENDED TO CONDUCT NEGOTIATIONS ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD. I NEVER WANT TO BE IN POSITION WHERE I’M EXTENDING ONE OF YOU BECAUSE WE DIDN’T GET OUR WORK DONE. AND IN THIS INSTANCE I WANTED TO DRAW THE ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE STAFF AND MOSTLY TO MYSELF, AND MOSTLY TO JOE–JUST KIDDING, BUT TO BOTH OF US. I’M TOTALLY KIDDING. [LAUGHING] BUT TO YOUR POINT, YOU RAISE A SERIES OF IMPORTANT POINTS. I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU MY PERSPECTIVE ON THEM. ONE IS THAT IT IS TRUE THAT ONE OF THE CHALLENGES WAITING FOR THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL TO COME FROM STAFF SO THAT WE WERE BETTER ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WOULD BE BENEFIT. I WILL SAY PERSONALLY THAT WE, LIKE ALL OF YOU, RECEIVED A NUMBER OF LETTERS FROM STANFORD THAT ASKED TO DISCUSS COMMUNITY BENEFITS IN A–THAT STARTED FAR BELOW WHAT THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL WERE. SO WHAT THAT MEANT WAS THAT FOR US TO OPEN UP NEGOTIATIONS, WE WOULD ESSENTIALLY BEGIN BY NEGOTIATING THE WAY I PERCEIVED IT, BY NEGOTIATING AGAINST OURSELVES. AND IN PARTICULAR IN THE AREA OF WHILE WE DID HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE GROUND RULES, AND REALLY BEING ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER IN THE FINAL, THE MOST RECENT MEETING WITH STAFF, I APOLOGIZE. I MEANT TO COPY YOU AND WRITE TO STANFORD, BUT I HAD TROUBLE PUTTING IN WORDS THAT WE MET WITH THEM. THEY SAID THERE WERE ONLY FOUR THINGS THAT THEY WERE CONCERNED ABOUT, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THEY WANTED TO DO WAS CREATE AN ELEMENT OF CONSISTENCY.>>CERTAINTY.>>CERTAINTY. I’M SURE THAT BOB WAS WRITING A BIG NOTE TO ME. WAS OF CERTAINTY. THE CHALLENGE WAS WHAT CAME BACK TO US WAS NOT ELEMENTS SOLELY OF CERTAINTY, BUT REALLY ASKING US TO TAKE–I THOUGHT–TAKING GIANT STEPS BELOW THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. I FEEL IN HAT EXCHANGE WHERE WE EXTEND ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO HAVE A–I THINK THE POINT THAT YOU RAISED, DAVE, ABOUT WHAT SOMEONE STARTING POSITION IS A CRITICAL POINT. AT THE TIME WE WERE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION, NOT ONLY WAS THE OFFER RELATIVE TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING SO FAR BELOW WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR, BUT THE DISCUSSIONS WE HAD WITH HE SCHOOL HAD NOT BEEN COMPLETED. I WAS WORRIED ABOUT TRADING OFF THE INTEREST OF CHILDREN WITH THE INTEREST OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. I DIDN’T THINK THAT WAS AN APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR US TO START. THAT ALL BEING SAID I WILL SAY TO YOU AND TO YOU THE BOARD IN GENERAL AND TO YOU IN PARTICULAR, IT WAS ALWAYS OUR INTENTION, AND I CAN SPEAK TO MINE PERSONALLY, IF POSSIBLE, WAS TO HAVE A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT BECAUSE OF MY COMFORT LEVEL FROM HE CITY OF SAN JOSE AND SEE IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE COULD USE TO GET MUCH DONE. THE OTHER WAS WHEN THE BOARD, ALL OF US AGREED THAT THIS WAS A PATH THAT WE SHOULD TAKE AND I BELIEVE WE DID OUR VERY BEST TO LIVE UP TO THE SPIRIT OF WHAT WE TRIED TO ACCOMPLISH. I FEEL VERY BADLY WITH THE COMMUNICATION WITH THE FULL BOARD. I WANTED TO SAY THAT BEFORE WE WENT ON. I HAVE A QUESTION FOR STAFF, THOUGH, IF I COULD. I’M INTERESTED IN THE 1985 AGREEMENT THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE. AND I’M WONDERING WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF THAT AGREEMENT BEING DISSOLVED OR NOT USED ANY MORE AS A BASIS FOR OUR PARTNERSHIP, RELATIONSHIP WITH STANFORD? I ASK THAT BECAUSE MOST RECENT LETTER HAD A PART IN IT ABOUT I THINK A LACK OF NEED FOR SERVICES. DO WE NEED IT ANY MORE? IS IT SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD BE EVALUATING AS PART OF THIS PROCESS?>>I THINK HE 19 # 5 AGREEMENT IS PROBABLY A SEPARATE CONVERSATION IN A LOT OF WAYS. IT PROVIDES A BASELINE FRAMEWORK FOR WHY THEY WERE INCORPORATED INTO THE CITY OF PALO ALTO. BACK SEVERAL DECADES AGO. BUT I DON’T THINK THAT IT’S REALLY DIRECTLY A PART OF THE CONVERSATION OF WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN HERE.>>WELL, THE REASON WHY I’M COMMENTING ON IT IS THAT AFTER THE STANFORD PROVISION OF MUNICIPAL SERVICES, UNDER A LETTER THAT I THINK MAY HAVE COME LAST NIGHT, THERE IS A SECTION OF IT THAT SAYS THAT IT DOESN’T APPEAR THAT THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE SERVICES. MY POINT IS THAT IF THEY’RE RAISING THIS RELATIVE TO THE APPROVAL, SHOULD WE IMPACT TAKE A LOOK AT THE AGREEMENT. IT SEEMS TO HAVE SOME PRECEDENCE TO AT LEAST ONE PART OF WHAT THEY’RE SKING FOR.>>WE COULD CERTAINLY LOOK.>>THANK YOU. THAT COMES TO ME. I’M GOING TO TRY TO KEEP MY COMMENTS RELATIVELY BRIEF AND LIMITED.>>I’M GOING TO ASK THIS QUESTION, IN THE END. JUST BECAUSE I–MS. GALLEGOS, MR. BRADLEY, THE APPLICANT FOR 3.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF DEVELOPMENT, IT IS THE STAFF’S RECOMMENDATION BEFORE US TODAY AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION’S RECOMMENDATION ON THE 7-0 VOTE TO GIVE THEM ALL 3.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET. YES?>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>SO THAT IS YOUR RECOMMENDATION. GIVE THE APPLICANT EVERYTHING THAT THE APPLICANT HAS ASKED FOR IN THE WAY COULD WE GO TO PAGE 15, PLEASE, OF THE POWER POINT. THANKS. THIS IS THE ZONING ORDINANCE OF THE COUNTY, YES?>>CORRECT.>>WHICH MEANS THAT IT’S THE LAW WE HAVE TO FOLLOW, YES?>>CORRECT.>>AND I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY EARLIER, MR. BRADLEY, THAT WE COULD NOT APPROVE THE PROJECT UNLESS WE CAN MAKE ALL OF THESE FINDINGS, IS THAT CORRECT?>>CORRECT, YES.>>SO THAT MEANS THAT WE, IN ORDER TO APPROVE THE PROJECT, WE HAVE TO MAKE A FINDING THAT THE PROPOSED USE WILL NOT BE DETRIMENTAL TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH, SAFETY, OR GENERAL WELFARE, CORRECT?>>CORRECT.>>LOOKING DOWN AT ITEM NUMBER 5, THE FINDING THERE IS THAT THE USE WILL NOT SUBSTANTIALLY WORSEN TRAFFIC CONGESTION AFFECTING THE SURROUNDING AREA. SO WE CANNOT NOT APPROVE THE PROJECT UNLESS WE CAN MAKE THAT FINDING.>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>ONE MORE TIME, YOU’RE REQUESTING THAT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPLICANT.>>IT IS THE APPROVAL OF 3.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET SUBJECT TO ARCHITECTURE APPROVAL, YES.>>OKAY. LET’S GO TO THE APPLICANT, COLLEAGUES. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HEAR FROM THEM. I’LL HAVE MORE BY WAY THE COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS. MS. PALTER, HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT HOW TO PRESENT? IT’S YOUR TEN MINUTES. YOU CAN USE IT FOR ANY PE PERMITTATION OF YOUR PRESENTATION.>>JUST TO CLARIFY, JEAN McCOWN WAS HERE SPEAKING AT THE REQUEST OF A FACULTY MEMBER WHO COULDN’T BE HERE. HE WANTED IT READ INTO THE RECORD.>>WITH THE CONSENT OF MY BOARD COLLEAGUES, I’M GOING TO M McGOWN HAS BEEN A REGULAR PART OF YOUR APPLICATION TEAM, AND HAS BEEN PART OF THE ADVOCACY EFFORTS FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. WE DON’T LET FOLKS SPEAK ON BEHALF OF OTHERS. YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH THIS PROCESS. YOU KNOW HOW IT WORKS. I WANT TO BE FLEXIBLE, BUT I WANT TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE BOARD. IN FUTURE SHE’LL BE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM AS WILL YOU, AS WILL MS. McGOWN AND MR. PIERCE, YOUR PAID TRAFFIC CONSULTANT.>>SHE JUST REALLY WANTED TO OFFER HER ABILITY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.>>GREAT.>>WOULD IT BE OKAY IF OMEONE ELSE READS THIS LETTER IF THEY SSUBMIT A CARD.>>AS LONG AS THEY’RE NOT DOUBLE DIPPING ON TIME, BUT A MEMBER OF THIS TEAM SHOULD REALLY BE PART OF THIS TEN MINUTES.>>THANK YOU. GOOD AFTERNOON RESIDENT SIMITIAN AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD. MY NAME IS MS. PALTER. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR THE TIME SPENT ON OUR APPLICATION OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS. WE’RE BUILDING ON A REGULATORY FRAMEWORK THAT ALLOWS STANFORD TO ADD TEACHING FACILITIES OVER TIME AND COMPREHENSIVELY ADDRESSING ENVIRONMENTAL AFFECTS ON OUR NEIGHBORS. STANFORD ADDRESSING RESEARCH AS WELL AS ENTRANCE. THIS WILL ALLOW STAND FORD TO INVEST IN STAT STATE OF THE ARTN RESEARCH FIELDS SUCH AS ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE, CANCER, CYBER SECURITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE. I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THREE SETS OF ISSUES THAT WE BELIEVE NEED TO BE RESOLVED BEFORE ACHIEVING THE PATH FORWARD. ONE, THE FEWED PROPOSED–THE HOUSING THAT CAN ONLY BE PROVIDED THROUGH MECHANISM OF DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. AND OMMUNITY BENEFITS THAT CAN ONLY BE ADDRESSED THROUGH COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENTS. FIRST THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. OVER THE COURSE OF THIS PROCESS, WE HAVE HEARD THAT STANFORD IS SEEKING A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT IN ORDER TO LIMIT MITIGATION. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. WE HAVE COMMITTED TO FULLY COMPLY WITH ALL MITIGATION AND THE COUNTY’S FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT. OUT OF MORE THAN 100 CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL PROPOSED BY THE COUNTY WE HAVE CONCERNS WITH ONLY THREE THAT WE BELIEVE ARE INFEASIBLE, OPEN ENDED OR DISCOURAGE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN AN OPEN CAMPUS. WE BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE CONSTRUCTIVE WAYS TO WORK TOGETHER TO MODIFY THESE THREE CONDITIONS TO ACHIEVE THE COUNTY’S POLICY OBJECTIVE WHILE INSURING THAT STANFORD IS ABLE TO BUILD IT’S NEW ACADEMIC FACILITIES AND PROVIDE THE HOUSING WE ALL WANT TO SEE COME TO FRUITION. IN THE BRIEF TIME THAT WE’VE HAD TO REVIEW STAFFS AGREEMENT, WE BELIEVE WE NEED TO WORK THIS OUT. WE HAVE HEARD THAT STANFORD OBJECTS TO PROVIDING MORE HOUSING. THIS IS ALSO INCORRECT. AS I BELIEVE YOU’RE AWARE STANFORD IS PROACTIVELY AND VOLTAIRELY CONSTRUCTED MORE THAN 1500 HOUSING UNITS AS WE SPEAK. WITH THESE UNITS COMBINED WITH THE NUMBER WE HAVE COMMITTED TO UNDER OUR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT PROPOSAL STANFORD WILL BE DRESSING 130% OF THE HOUSING DEMAND. INCLUDING BELOW-MARKET UNITS ON STANFORD’S CAMPUS AND EXTENDING THE BELOW MARKET RATE HOUSING. WE WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS OUR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT HOUSING PROPOSAL TO DISCUSS IF THERE ARE ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO ADDRESS THE CRITICAL HOUSING NEEDS IN THE COUNTY. HOWEVER, I WOULD LIKE TO BE CLEAR ON ONE IMPORTANT POINT. WE BELIEVE THAT THE PROPOSED HOUSING CONDITIONS EXTEND BEYOND THE LEGAL AUTHORITY OF THE COUNTY. THAT IS WHY ADDITIONAL HOUSING CAN AND SHOULD BE DISCUSSED WITHIN THE CONSTRUCT OF THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. WE WANT TO PROVIDE THE HOUSING. WE SIMPLY WANT TO DO IT THROUGH A MECHANISM THAT RESOLVES CONFLICT. THIRD, THERE IS AN ISSUE OF BENEFITS PROVIDED TO OUR NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES. WE HAVE HEARD THAT STANFORD’S $4.7 BILLION PROPOSAL PACKAGE INCLUDING OUR PROPOSAL OF $168 MILLION FOR SCHOOLS AND TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS DOES NOT REPRESENT COMMUNITY BENEFIT. NO ONE HAS REFUTED THAT STANFORD IS COMMITTED TO SPENDING THIS MONEY DOWN HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION, SCHOOLS, AND BENEFIT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE COST OF BUILDING THE ACADEMIC FACILITIES THAT FORM THE OCCUR OF OUR PROJECT. THE ONLY DISAGREEMENT IS HOW TO CHARACTERIZE THESE INVESTMENTS. ARE THEY PROVIDED THROUGH EXISTING PROGRAMS AS PART OF THE PROJECT OR ADDITIONAL BENEFITS ON TOP OF THE PROJECT? THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU CHARACTERIZE THESE INVESTMENTS, STANFORD IS COMMITTEED TO INVEST $4.7 MILLION AS PART OF THE PERMIT AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. AS YOU KNOW THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT IS THE TOOL ROUTINELY USED IN LOCAL LAND USE ENTITLEMENT THAT ALLOWS THE INVESTMENT. IT IS REGULARLY USED FOR LARGE, LONG-TERM PROJECTS SOME LOCAL EXAMPLES NETFLIX, AND GATEWAY CROSSING PROJECT IN SANTA CLARA. THE APPROVAL OF USC’S PLAN IN LOS ANGELES INCLUDED A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. OVER THE YEARS TANFORD HAS ENTERED E INTO FIVE AGREEMENTS. THAT AGREEMENT IS PART OF THE APPROVAL PACKAGE THAT HAS BEEN EVALUATED BY ELECTED OFFICIALS. THAT WAY WHEN THE DECISION MAKERS ARE DELIBERATING WHETHER TO APPROVE A PROJECT OR NOT, THEY HAVE FULL UNDE UNDERSTANDG OF THE BENEFITS THAT CAN BE REALIZED IN THE COMMUNITY. WE KNOW OF NO APPLICANT ANYWHERE WHO WOULD INVEST HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, LET ALOE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE ITEMS THE COMMITTEE HAS REQUESTED, MUCH OF THEM FRONT LOADED ITHOUT RECEIVING ASSURANCES THAT WILL BE ABLE TO CONSTRUCT THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE FACILITY IT SEEKS TO BUILD. WITHOUT SUCH PREDICTABILITY, THE APPLICANT WOULD INVEST, AND THEN FUTURE CITY COUNCILS COULD PASS ADDITIONAL FEES THAT WOULD MAKE THE REMAINING FACILITIES PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE OR IMPOSSIBLE TO BUILD. THE COMMUNITY IS CERTAIN WHAT BENEFITS THEY WILL RECEIVE, AND THE APPLICANT HAS ASSURANCES TO COMPLETING THEIR DEVELOPMENT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO EMPHASIZE THIS IS THE ONLY LEGISLATIVE TOOL THAT CAN PROVIDE SUCH PREDICTABILITY. THERE IS NO OTHER. WE HAVE HEARD CONCERNS THAT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS ARE NOT TRANSPARENT. THAT IS INCORRECT. THE FIRST GOVERNMENT HAS EXACTLY THE SAME TRANSPARENCY AS THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL SINCE BOTH ARE RESENTED TO THE PUBLIC AND EVALUATED IN THE SAME WAY BY ELECTED OFFICIALS IN OPEN PUBLIC HEARINGS. THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS TO STRUCTURE THE TRANSPARENCY. STANFORD WOULD BE WILLING TO USE WHAT ARE NEGOTIATION MECHANISM THE COUNTY THINKS BEST. WE HAVE HEARD CONCERNS THAT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS REMOVE ALL FLEXIBILITY FOR THE COUNTY TO EVOLVE FUTURE REGULATIONS. THAT IS ALSO INCORRECT. THE STATE’S DEVELOPMENT G.E. STATUTE RECOGNIZES THERE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN MAINTAINING FLEXIBILITY AND KEY AREAS FOR LEGISLATORS WHILE PROVIDING CERTAINTY TO THE APPLICANT. OUR LETTERS TO SUPERVISORS SIMITIAN AND CHAVEZ DESCRIBE THIS IN DETAIL. WE BELIEVE WE CAN ADDRESS THESE CONCERNS DURING NEGOTIATIONS. SOME WONDER WHY THE AGREEMENT IS NEEDED TODAY? THE ANSWER IS THAT STANFORD DID NOT SEEK A GOVERNMENT AGREEMENT IN 2000 BECAUSE WE WERE NOT ASKED AT THAT TIME TO PROVIDE BENEFITS OUTSIDE OUR ACADEMIC MISSION ANYWHERE NEAR THE MAGNITUDE THAT WE’RE EING ASKED TO PROVIDE TODAY. SO I THINK YOU CAN APPRECIATE AN APPROPRIATE NEED FOR ASSURANCES GIVEN THIS SCALE. THAT IS WHY STANFORD USE THE PERMIT AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT FOR HOUSING AND BENEFITS FOR THE COMMUNITY AS WELL AS LAND USE PREDICTABILITY FOR STANFORD AS A PACKET. WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUPPORT A THRIVING COUNTY COMMUNITY AND STANFORD FOR THE NEXT TWO DECADES. TO DO THAT WE SEEK TO WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE FEASIBLE CONDITIONS THAT STANFORD CAN IMPLEMENT AND IDENTIFY THE PASSAGE OF COMMUNITY BENEFITS TO BE PROVIDED. THIS ALLOWS US TO PROVIDE HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION, SCHOOLS AND OTHER BENEFITS NOW WHILE EVOLVING OUR RESEARCH AND TEACHING OVER TIME TO SERVE AN EVER CHANGING WORLD. BECAUSE OF THE REASONS I HAVE JUST LAID OUT TO YOU WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT AFTER HEARING FROM THE PUBLIC THE COUNTY CONTINUE THE HEARINGS ON THE PROJECT AND DEVELOPMENT HEARING TO A LATER DATE TO ALLOW STANFORD AND COUNTY STAFF TO GREAT A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TO BE CONSIDERED AT THE SAME TIME FOR THIS PROJECT. WE DO NOT TAKE THIS LIGHTLY. WE BELIEVE IF WE CAN SIT DOWN AND TALK WITH THE COUNTY WE CAN REACH A PACKAGE THAT WORKS FOR THE COUNTY, THE COMMUNITY, AND STANFORD.>>THANK YOU. IF YOU’LL STAY FOOT. QUESTIONS? MS. ELLENBERG.>>THANK YOU FOR THAT REPORT. YOU DESCRIBED THAT STANFORD IS WILLING TO DO EVERYTHING THAT FALLS WITHIN THE GENERAL–WITH THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL, BUT WANT IT TO BE OUTSIDE OF–I’M JUST REPEATING FROM MY OWN EDUCATION AS WELL, BUT ARE INTERESTED IN DOING IT IN A SEPARATE AGREEMENT SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE ASSURITY ABOUT YOUR ABILITY TO FULLY DEVELOP THE SPACE OVER THE TERMS OF THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, IS THAT CORRECT?>>THERE ARE TWO ASPECTS OF THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. THERE ARE THREE THAT WE BELIEVE THAT ARE INFEASIBLE, AND THEN TWO THAT ARE HAVING TO DO WITH HOUSING THAT WE’RE IN DISAGREEMENT WHERE THEY BELONG IN THE CONDITIONS OR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. WE BELIEVE THAT THEY BELONG IN THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT. BUT YES TO YOUR OVER ALL QUESTION, THAT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT ALLOW US TO FRONT LOAD A LOT OF THESE BENEFITS AND STILL HAVE CERTAINTY THAT WE CAN ABBUILD OUR ACADEMIC FACILITIES.>>AND THE LOSS TO STANFORD IS HAVING TO COMPLY WITH A LIST OF CONDITIONS WITHOUT ASSURANCE THAT EACH OF YOUR SUBSEQUENT PROJECTS DURING THE LENGTH OF THE GUP WILL BE APPROVED.>>OKAY. I THINK THAT’S ALL FOR NOW. BUT I’M STILL THINKING.>>SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN.>>THANK YOU. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY ON MY RADAR. EVERY SINGLE DAY. IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. WHERE I GO BACK AND FORTH, DEPENDING ON WHO I HAPPEN TO MEET WITH R TALK WITH IS WHAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED IN THE DA THAT CAN’T BE ACCOMPLISHED UNDER THE GUP? I’M CERTAINLY ONE LOOKING FOR BENEFITS TO THE PALO ALTO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT. I HAVE TO TELL YOU, EVERY TIME I SPEAK WITH SOMEONE DIFFERENT, I’M LESS AND LESS CONVINCED THAT WE CAN’T ACCOMPLISH ALL WE WANT UNDER THE GUP ITSELF. AND NOT NEEDED N THE DA. I WONDER YOU COULD RESTATE–BECAUSE I NOW YOU JUST SAID IN YOUR NINE MINUTES NOW–YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON WHY A DA IS NEEDED? I’M STILL CONFUSED. I’M STILL NOT CONVINCED.>>WELL, I CAN GIVE YOU A COUPLE OF REASONS. ONE, AS I SAID, WE STILL HAVE A DISAGREEMENT THAT ALL OF THOSE–THAT HOUSING COULD BE REQUIRED UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL. THE OTHER ASPECT OF THE CONDITIONS AND ORDINANCE IS THAT HOUSING BENEFITS WOULD BE PROVIDED OVER TIME. AND WHAT WE’VE OFFERED IN OUR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT PROPOSAL, WHICH IS AGAIN, A STARTING POINT FOR DISCUSSION, WE WOULD PROVIDE 100% OF THE BMR UNITS REQUIRED BY THE ORDINANCE PASSED BY THE BOARD LAST FALL, AND 75% OF ALL OF THE HOUSING DURING THE TIME WHEN 25% OF OUR ACADEMIC FACILITIES WOULD BE BUILT. THAT SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING BECAUSE WE KNOW THE REMAINING 75% F OUR ACADEMIC FACILITIES COULD PROCEED THE WAY WE ALL AGREED TO AT THE END OF THIS PROCESS.>>THANK YOU. ON THOSE TWO ITEMS IF I MAY, FOR THE CHAIR. THANK YOU. THE FIRST ITEM AS FAR AS FRONT LOADING THE HOUSING. WE HAVE A HOUSING CRISIS NOW. BUILDING HOUSING SOONER THAN LATER, I’M ALL FOR IT. WHAT I’M NOT YET CONVINCED, WHY CAN’T THAT BE JUST ABOUT A CONDITION OF APPROVAL, AND NOT IN A DA. THAT’S NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, YOU REFERRED TO THE AMOUNT OF HOUSING. FROM THE POWER POINT SLIDE, FROM THE STAFF REPORTS AND ALL THAT I HEARD AND -MAILS AND OUR MEETINGS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE, I THINK IT’S NOT SO MUCH A DISAGREEMENT ABOUT THE HOUSING BEING RESOLVED IN THE GUP OR IN THE DA. I THINK THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION ON THE NUMBER OF HOUSES TO BE BUILT. AND I ORGET WHICH AGE IT WAS IN HERE, BUT THE DELTA BETWEEN WHAT I’M HEARING FROM STAFF HERE AND WHAT I’M HEARING FROM STANFORD BANKLY IS STANFORD IS ASKING FOR CREDIT OF HOUSING THEY HAVE BUILT AND ARE BUILDING, AND US SAYING, THE MITIGATION FOR THIS NEW PROPOSED PROJECT IS LIKE I’M OFF, BUT 2,000 NEW UNITS. YOU GET TO THE SAME 2,000 BY ALLOWING FOR 1400 OR 1500 THAT HAVE BEEN BUILT OR RECENTLY BUILT. AND I BELIEVE STAFF IS SAYING PROPER MITIGATION FOR THE HIGHS OF THE DEVELOPMENT IS 2,000 NEW UNITS. RUDIES AGREEING ITH THE NUMBER OF UNITS OR IF THEY’RE EQUIRED IN THE GUP VERSE THE–VERSUS THE DA. OR BOTH.>>FIRST I WOULD SAY WE HAVEN’T HAD A CHANCE TO TALK ABOUT THIS TO SEE WHERE IT IS. WHAT WE’VE DONE IN UR FIRST APPLICATION WAS RECOGNIZE THE INCREDIBLE INVESTMENT STANFORD IS MAKING RIGHT NOW. STANFORD IS BUILDING 1300 APARTMENTS FOR OUR EXISTING GRADUATE STUDENTS WHO WILL MOVE OUT OF THE COMMUNITY, FREEING UP HOUSING THERE, AND WE HAVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION 1500 FACULTY STAFF UNITIES. STANFORD HAS BEEN PRO ACTIVE TO BRING HOUSING SUPPLY THAT WILL OPEN UP IN THE NEXT YEAR. THIS IS A CREDIT TOWARDS MARKET RATE HOUSING OF 865 UNITS. THAT’S THE DISAGREEMENT THERE. BUT AGAIN, THIS IS SOMETHING WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT. BUT IT SEEMED REASONABLE TO US THAT IF WE’RE GOING TO SPEND $1 BILLION ON 1300 APARTMENTS, IT SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED IN THIS CALCULOUS SOME HOW.>>OKAY. I’M GOING TO STOP THERE.>>SUPERVISOR–COMING THIS WAY, PLEASE. WELL, I’M GOING TO STAY ON THIS POINT BEFORE I GO TO SUPERVISOR CORTESE. MS. PALTER, ON THE HOUSING ISSUE THAT SUPERVISOR WASSERMAN ASKED ABOUT, MY UNDERSTANDING FROM STAFF IS THAT STAFF AFTER LOOKING AT THE NEXUS STUDY CONCLUDED THAT IN ORDER TO MITIGATE THE HOUSING DEMAND ASSOCIATED WITH 9,610 NEW FOLKS ON CAMPUS, WE NEEDED TO SEE 2172 NEW UNITS OF HOUSING. MISDEMMR. BRADLEY AND MS. GALLES THAT CORRECT?>>THAT IS FROM THE NEXUS STUDY.>>I’M TOLD THAT YOU’RE CHALLENGING THE 2172 BECAUSE YOU DON’T AGREE WITH THE METHODOLOGY. IS THAT THE BASIS THAT YOU DON’T THINK THAT WE CAN REQUIRE THE 2172 UNITS, OR IS THERE ANOTHER BASIS.>>WE’VE NEVER SEEN A REQUIREMENT WHERE AN APPLICANT HAS BEEN ASKED TO BUILD MARKET HOUSING.>>THEN YOU ASKED FOR A CREDIT FOR HALF OF THE UNITS THAT ARE BEING BUILT AT ESCONDIDO VILLAGE. IN BOTH THE APPLICATION SUBMITTED THREE OR FOUR YEARS AGO, AND IN NOT ONCE BUT TWICE YOUR COMMENTS TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION, YOU ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THOSE HOUSING UNITS ARE TO MEET EXISTING DEMAND FROM STUDENTS. AM I REMEMBERING THAT CORRECTLY.>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>OKAY SO YOUR POSITION IS THAT HOUSING YOU CHOSE TO BUILD TO MEET EXISTING DEMAND FROM STUDENTS SHOULD BE USED TO MITIGATE FUTURE DEMAND FROM WORKFORCE FOLKS WHO HAVE NOT YET ARRIVED, S THAT YOUR POSITION?>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>OKAY. THAT’S ALL I NEED. THAT’S WHY I WAS TAKEN ABACK BY THE FACT THAT YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE COMMITTED TO INVEST $4.7 BILLION IN THE FUTURE BECAUSE $1 BILLION OF THAT IS DEVELOPMENT THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE ALREADY DONE TO MITIGATE IMPACTS FROM PRIOR DEVELOPMENT OPPOSED TO MONEY YOU WILL BE SPENDING IN THE FUTURE TO MITIGATE FUTURE IMPACTS OF WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT. SO THAT’S THE–>>THAT STUDENT HOUSING WAS NOT REQUIRED S A MITIGATION. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE PROACTIVELY DECIDED TO DO TO BRING THOSE STUDENTS ON CAMPUS THAT FREES UP THE PLACES WHERE THEY’RE LIVING NOW WHICH IS WHERE THE WORKFORCE HAVE MOVE INTO.>>DUALLY NOTED. FOR THE RECORD YOU’RE SAYING THAT HOUSING YOU CHOSE TO BUILD TO MEET EXISTING STUDENT DEMAND SHOULD COUNT AS MITIGATION FOR DEVELOPMENT NOT YET AUTHORIZED, AND WORKFORCE PARTICIPANTS WHO HAVE NOT YET ARRIVED ON CAMPUS GOING FORWARD. OKAY. THAT PART IS CLEAR.>>THE OTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO ADD WITH THESE QUESTIONS, WHAT I’M EXPLAINING IS WHAT WE PUT FORWARD IN JUNE, AND WHAT WE REALLY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO IS TO HAVE A CHANCE TO TALK ABOUT THESE ISSUES. IN A VACUUM WE’RE TRYING TO PUT FORWARD WHAT WE THINK MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE COUNTY IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. THERE COULD BE ANOTHER WAY TO SHIFT THESE RESOURCES AND DO IT A DIFFERENT WAY. WHAT WE WANT IS A CHANCE TO TALK ABOUT IT.>>MS. PALTER, I’M GOING TO ASK YOU A QUESTION, AND NORMALLY I COULDN’T GET THIS PERSON. HAVE I EVER DENIED REQUEST FROM THE UNIVERSITY TO MEET WITH YOU ALL? EVER?>>NO.>>HOW ABOUT SUPERVISOR CHA DEGREES AS THE SECOND MEMBER OF THE AD HOC TEAM.>>NO.>>HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO MEET WITH STAFF.>>LESS FREQUENTLY THAN WE COULD BEFORE.>>AND YOU HAD FIVE MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM WHO MET WITH SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ AND ME JUST LAST MONTH, ES?>>AND SHE ASKED FOR A LETTER, WHICH LETTER YOU PROVIDED, YES?>>MM-HMM.>>I JUST DON’T WANT FOLKS TO THINK THAT THERE ARE NO COMMUNICATION WHEN I THINK PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WORKING PRETTY HARD ON ALL SIDES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GOT QUALITY TIME TOGETHER. ALL RIGHT. I’M GOING TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS. SUPERVISOR CORTESE, YOU’VE BEEN WAITING PATIENTLY. YOUR LIGHT IS ON.>>ONE QUESTION, MS. PALTER, EARLIER WHEN I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE PROCESS AND SO FORTH, AND ASKING SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT, I READ THE CLARIFICATION AND MOTIONS MADE BY SUPERVISOR SIMITIAN. THE FIRST BULLET POINT SAYS INCREASE THE PROPOSED LEVEL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FUNDING, LET ME BACK UP. IT SAYS GIVEN THAT STANFORD’S ADMINISTRATION RECOMMENDS PROCEEDING WITH NEGOTIATIONS ONLY IF STANFORD FIRST AGREES IN WRITING TO INCORPORATE ALL THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS. FIRST BULLET, INCREASE THE PROPOSED LEVEL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FUNDING TO EXCEED THE LEVEL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING RESULTING FROM THE HOUSING ORDINANCES. IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO ME THAT YOU DID THAT. I WOULD HAVE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION HAD HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE BOARD LAST APRIL. AND TO MY COLLEAGUES’ CREDIT ON THE AD HOC COMMITTEE WHO HAVE ATTEMPTED TO NEGOTIATE, AND TO SUPERVISOR CHAVEZ’S COMMENT NOT WANTING TO NEGOTIATE AGAINST OURSELVES, THIS BEING THE DIRECTION OF THE BOARD, CAN YOU EXPLAIN, AND I RELEASE IT’S A SIMILAR QUESTION TO SUPERVISOR SUPERVISOR–SIMITIANS, WHY YOUR OPENER WOULDN’T SATISFY BULLET POINT NUMBER ONE.>>A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY ON THE IMPACT FEE ORDINANCE PASSED LAST YEAR. THE NEXUS STUDY BROUGHT FORWARD A MAXIMUM FEE THAT COULD BE CHARGED OF $143 A SQUARE FOOT. THAT WOULD RESULT IN 900 UNITS. AFTER SOME DISCUSSION OF THE BOARD IT WENT BACK TO STAFF. STAFF CAME BACK WITH A RECOMMENDATION OF A FEE OF 575 UNITS. THAT’S WHAT WAS APPROVED BY THE BOARD LAST FALL. AT THAT TIME THERE WAS A CLAUSE VERY IMPORTANT TO THE BOARD THAT IF STANFORD CAME FORWARD WITH A PROPOSAL OF BELOW MARKET RATE UNITS, THAT MET OR EXCEEDED THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE ORDINANCE, THE ORDINANCE COULD BE RESCINDED. THAT WAS PART OF HE WHOLE PACKAGE. WHEN STANFORD MADE ITS PROPOSALS BOTH IN JANUARY AND IN JUNE, WE SHOWED WITH MATH HOW WE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT. HOW WE WERE ABLE TO NOT JUST PAY THE FEE OVER TIME, BUT FRONT LOAD IT, BUILD THE YOU WANTS, AND SHOW THAT IT WAS MORE OF HIGHER VALUE THAN THE ORDINANCE PASSED IN THE FALL.>>WHATEVER IT’S WORTH, IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO ME, AND GAIN, I’M NOT PART OF AN NEGOTIATION BE TEAM, BUT I WOULD HAVE SAID THIS TO YOU HAD I BEEN, IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO ME THAT YOU OPENED UP THE NEGOTIATIONS AT ANY POINT BY EXPRESSING A WILLINGNESS–THIS IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ASKED FOR, NOT THE NUMBER OF UNITS–BUT HE WILLINGNESS TO PROVIDE HOUSING TO EXCEED THE HOUSING ORDINANCES. I JUST HAVE TO SAY IRRESPECTIVE OF ALL MY CONCERNS ABOUT PROCESS AND AS YOU HEARD EARLIER, IT’S PROBLEMATIC FOR ME TO, OR IT WOULD BE, TO GO FORWARD EVEN TODAY WITH OOD FAITH NEGOTIATIONS AS A BOARD MEMBER UNLESS THESE FIVE BULLET POINTS ARE EXPRESSED IN WRITING BY STANFORD ESSENTIALLY VERBATIM. WE SAID IN THIS IS WHAT WE WANT. YOU CAN’T START ANY NEGOTIATION WITHOUT BOTH SIDES AT LEAST AGREEING TO WHAT THE EXPECTATIONS ARE. IF IT’S ALREADY BEEN SAID BY OR IMPLIED BY SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES, I THINK BY PUTTING SPECIFIC HOUSING NUMBERS OUT THAT ARE DIFFERENT AND DON’T APPEAR TO EXCEED THE LEVEL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE ORDINANCE, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO PROCEED TO STEP TWO OF THE NEGOTIATION OR TO TALK ABOUT ALL THESE OTHER THINGS IN THESE OTHER PARAGRAPHS LIKE SCHOOL IMPACT TRANSPORTATION, SUSTAINABILITY OPEN SPACE AND SO FORTH. SO I THINK IT’S A BIG OBSTACLE, AND I WANT TO EXPRESS THAT BECAUSE THIS IS PROBABLY MY ONLY CHANCE TO DO THAT IN A PUBLIC SETTING. THANK YOU, MR. SIMITIAN.>>I SHOULD GO BACK AND CHECK. I THINK WE MAY HAVE RESPONDED BY LETTER SAYING THAT WE WERE WILLING TO ENGAGE ON ALL OF THOSE POINTS. WE CAN GO BACK AND VERIFY THAT. BUT THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT.>>I’M JUST GOING BY WHAT WE HAVE BEFORE US TODAY.>>I WILL HAVE COMMENTS LATER ABOUT THE DA PROCESS, BUT I WANT TO HOLD OFF ON THOSE. MISPALTER, HOWEVER, I NOTED THAT EVEN IF IT WASN’T APPARENT TO YOU, YOU DID HAVE A MINUTE OR SO LEFT AT THE END OF YOUR REMARKS BEFORE, YOU SAID YOU WOULD TAKE QUESTIONS. IF YOU WANT TO BRING SOME OTHER MEMBER OF YOUR TEAM UP, WHETHER THAT’S MS. McNAIR, I WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR FULL TEN MINUTES. I’LL LET YOU LOOK BESEECHINGLY AT YOUR COLLEAGUES.>>DID YOU SAY THAT MS. McNAIR.>>I SEE HER STANDING. AND IF SHE WANTS TO COME FORWARD AND OFFER A THOUGHT OR OFFER HERSELF UP AS A RESOURCE, THAT’S FINE. AFTER THOSE QUESTIONS SHE MAY. OR MAY NOT. SHE’S MOVING THIS WAY. THANK YOU. THAT’S GOOD.>>MY NAME IS WHITNEY McNAIR. I’M THE DIRECT OF STANFORD HOUSING. I MANAGE THE HOUSING ONCE IT’S BUILT. MY ROLE REQUIRES ME TO HAVE A PULSE ON THE NEEDS, WANTS AND DESIRES OF FACULTY AND STAFF ON ALL HOUSING RELATED MATTERS. I DO THIS BY MEETING WITH MANY FACULTY AND STARVE, LEARNING ABOUT THEM AND THROUGH SURVEYS TO UNDER THEIR NEEDS. WHILE THERE IS PUBLIC DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT AND WEAR STANFORD’S HOUSING SHOULD BE BUILT, THERE SEEMS TO BE A DISCONNECT ABOUT WHAT THE POTENTIAL RESIDENTS OF THE HOUSING WANT OR NEED WHEN LOOKING FOR A HOME. NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO LIVE IN EMPLOYER-PR-PROVIDED HOUSING. WE HAVE WORKFORCE MAKE CHOICES ABOUT WHERE TO LIVE ON A WHOLE HOST OF REASONS. THEY WANT TO LIVE CLOSE TO THEIR CAREGIVER, WHERE THEIR SPOUSE CAN LIVE CLOSE TO WORK SITE, BECAUSE OF SCHOOLS THEY WANT TO ATTEND OR A LARGE YARD. MARKET RENTS AROUND THE CAMPUS ARE THE HIGHEST IN THE BAY AREA. THE REQUIREMENT TO BUILD 70% OF THE MARKET RATE HOUSING ON CAMPUS IS ONLY EXACERBATING THE PROBLEM FOR OUR WORKFORCE. WHEN IT OMES TO HOUSING, STANFORD’S OPULATION I URGE YOU TO PAUSE AND REALLY LEARN WHAT WILL APPEAL TO STANFORD’S WORKFORCE. HOUSING IS MUCH MORE THAN A NUMBER OF YOU WANTS TO SATISFY A CONDITION OF APPROVAL. I URGE YOU TO GET THIS RIGHT AND SIT DOWN WITH STANFORD AND COLLABORATE BECAUSE THIS TAKES CREATIVE THINKING TO SOLVE THIS AND GET THE HOUSING AS ESIGNED.>>THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.
