requiring memorandum to the eir for 2004 and 2009 housing elements on the grounds set are forgot in our 2015 to the planning commission copies are attached my my letter the court of appeals says they're not completed the review and it's been carried forward to the policies of 2009 element but the 2009 element has not finally completed the eir the housing element is currently being reviewed by the california court of appeals if the court rules it is valid the conclusion in the
adu democrat and the city acts as it's on risk before the adequacy of the eir is determined the city should refrain from relying on an eir as a review of the building inspection of the 2014 until the proceedings are commit my letter of comment was included from the agenda so that no one know about the objections or acting on your own risk and the environmental impact report requires a 72 heirs notice of the documents submitted to the bodies that relate to the matter you can't act on this unless you correct the amendment. >> thank you to the sdafks city
attorney's office can you speak on that. >> the board can act on the notice that was provided any members of the public they can submit the notice but the meeting was appropriate and the planning commission submission to the board was adequate. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors i'm the chair for the coalition land use and transportation committee i'd like to read a resolution as roved urging the board of supervisors not to paragraph the elements and to not recommend the 2013 because the environmental review carried over into the 2014 housing
element was based on on the analysis xhikd and the concludes in the eir by the way, the o 4 and 09 housing element and the eir is still being considered by the appellant courts of california i'd like to say supervisor kim you're right the planning department didn't provide the information as to the acceptance r sense of the goals for that i'll tell you the market rate was they've met the market rate they're low and met over 80 percent the workforce housing the type of housing the data analysis states we need you think 25 percent or so very low the housing element bans that on the housing element was in the past they've rolled is over to the new one so we're working on
a policy that failed this housing element needs to be redone so that the results will more match the nodes of the city and in the past it has not done so we're behind in work how's people in the did not have a hard time just applying district work. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> madam chair cowen and supervisor kim i'm john good afternoon you had a very, very profound bit of testimony from the lady a
moment ago regarding the deficiencies that have been addressed in the court and still being reviewed by the court and also the fact that her statement which is a very important statement in making your decision in making the merit before you was omitted from the passage that was prepared for the public for you as supervisors for this committee hearing and the supervisors if it were to pass by this committee the packet was deficient and that is an outrageous situation for you to be in a predict where the members of the board of supervisors are obligated to go
look at a folder in a packet that was incomplete that's an important statement regarding the court procedures are take place their ignored in the report by the staff to that packet and for that reason you should take actions today to postpone this meeting for one week to correct the omission that is a public process the public has not been given the packet to review for the agenda today and for them to make an intelligent comment and the omission was significant a big bearing on your - >> thank you. sir, your time is
up. >> seeing no members of the public the matter is in the hands of the committee supervisor kim do you have any questions or comments you'd like to make. >> no i'll say a couple of things i think regardless of what is going on conceptually in the courts of the 2009 housing element the updates that were put in in 2014 were important they represent where the city is directed today with the strong statements about preserving our existing housing stock with protecting housing assuring we're prioritizing you affordable housing and the statement in public insuring that short-term rentals are not occasional obligating our
homeowner those are not in mrs. in 2009 it is important that we put that you want update in place i want to address one comment earlier the statement that san francisco is a city of renter proportionally this is true it is a policy document and that each policy didn't apply to every neighborhood and the policy recognizes the neighborhood that are single-family home ownership and the that statement kind of disagrees with the other so i'd like just point out this broad policy statement shouldn't be i guess not acknowledging that those types of neighborhoods exist that is very important to
the fabric of san francisco i think we should move forward with get out of land use committee to the full board next tuesday the legal issues will be in place but to have the updates in place. >> i'm sorry this item 3406z and motion for the committee report. >> supervisor kim could you restate our motion. >> i didn't make a motion if you want to make closing comments but i did not royals we were forwarding it but i'll make a motion to move forward either what recommendations or without recommendation. >> all right. i'll move with support of recommendation so this item the motion was made and accepted this item is closed madam clerk, any other business before this committee?
>> bonnie banks. bonnie banks. my definition of noise is uncontrolled music. without format. pretty simple affair. pancakes, and you're -- people get up on sundays around noon, weekends or whatever. should not be too hard to walk into place. have your audio alarm clock go off for two hours waking your up while you are eating breakfast with many interesting visuals once in a while. improvisation. listening or not to the person
you're playing up against or people or machines. trying to get as many different people in as possible. different genres experimental noise electronics, dissonance some drums.a tiny bit of ambient -- the first noise pancake shows, 1999 the first waffle noise, 2001. god-waffle noise noise pancake came out of cubist art, place on mission street, brutallo where the church -- opened up
his house and saturday morning cartoons. a big space. you can have everybody set up and barely move equipment around; small room for an audience to move around, walkover and get pancakes without getting burned up in the kitchen. there's like people in their hard-core gabber; people into really fast death metal; black metal. people who don't listen to music at all. guy like larnie bock (sounds like) set up huge, motor
driven harp. i don't know how to explain it. 40 foot of motors that he had running over strings and wires. and then played each string individually with the mixer. there is a feeling of euphoria when somebody's really good at what they do. experiencing a buffer, pushing your bowels out your rear. different. a lot of noise. you don't play clubs with a cleaning schedule, a guy coming in the morning emptying the beer bottles. you play the warehouse. if you travel around you will see the exact same kind of weirdos doing their own thing.
it is like in the bay area it's even more absurd. there seems to be more people that in a place like new york or tokyo. we did a show in new york, i didn't think that anyone was at hardly, and people come up and said i saw the show. i wish they had some kind of breakfast noise going on over there. i think a lot of people were being, walking out of the shows. that was incredible. i can't believe it's over already, after two hours. if you are reluctant to enjoy something like this it will probably take a mass of peers to sell you on it. it's fine if you stay away.
>> you're watching quick bites, the show that is san francisco. and today you're in for a real treat. oh, my! food inspired by the mediterranean and middle east with a twist so unique you can only find it in one place in san francisco. we're at the 55th annual armenian festival and bizarre. this is extra special not only because i happen to be armenian, but there is so much delicious food here. and i can't wait to share it with all of you. let's go.
armenia, culture and cusine has had much cultural exchanges with its neighbors. today armenian food infuses he flavor from the mediterranean, middle east, and eastern europe. >> this is our 55th year and in san francisco we're the largest armenian food festival and widely recognized as one of the best food festivals in the area. we have vendors that come up from fresno, from los angeles showing off their craft. we really feel like we have something for everyone in the neighborhood and that's really what it is, is drawing people to see a little bit of our culture and experience what we experience weekend in and weekend out. >> we are behind the scenes now watching the chef at work preparing some delicious armenian kabob. this is a staple in armenian cooking, is that right? >> absolutely, since the beginning of time. our soldiers used to skewer it on the swords. we have a combination of beef
and lam and parsley. and every september over 2000 pounds of meat being cooked in three days. >> after all that savory protein, i was ready to check out the fresh veggie options. >> this is armenian cheat sheet. it's tomatos and mint and olive oil. that makes summer food. and what i'm doing is i'm putting some nutmeg. it is kind of like cream cheese. in armenia when they offer you food, you have to eat it. they would welcome you and food is very important for them. >> in every armenian community we feel like we're a "smallville"age and they come together to put on something like this. what i find really interesting about san francisco is the blends of armenia that come together. once they are here, the way people work together at any age, including our grandmothers, our grandfathers, skewering the meat, it's fun to see.
fun to see everybody get together. >> we call it subarek. it's a cheese turn over if you want. we make the dough from scratch. we boil it like you do for la san i can't. >> the amount of love and karin fused in these foods is tremendous. they come in every day to prepare, cook and bake bread, all in preparation for this big festival. >> nobody says no. when you come them, they have to come tomorrow for the feast. >> what a treat it is to taste a delicious recipe, all made from scratch and passed down through generations. it really makes you appreciate the little things. >> it's one of the best festivals. it's outstanding, a marvelous occasion. >> we're outside checking some of the food to go options. i grabbed myself a ka bob sandwich, all kinds of herbs and spices. i'm going to taste this. looking fantastic. one of the best i've had in a long time.
you know it's delicious b i have just enough room for dessert, my favorite part. we're behind the scenes right now watching how all the pastries get made. and we've got a whole array of pastries here. honey and nuts and cinnamon, all kinds of great ingredients. this is amazing. here's another yummy pastry made with filo dough. oh, my god. really sweet and similar, it's lighter. this is what i like. we have a lovely row here. looks like a very delicious and exciting surprise. i'm going to bite into it. here we go. um. this is great with armenian coffee. now we're making some
incredible armenian coffee. >> we buy our coffee, they have the best coffee. they come from armenia, specially made. and would you like to try it? >> i would like to try. >> would you like sugar or no sugar? >> no sugar today. i'm so excited. really earthy. you can really taste the grain. i think that's what makes it so special. really comes out. i hope you try it. we're having a great time we ate, we saw, and we definitely conquered. i don't know about you, but i have to go down to the food. check out our blog for so much more at sf bites at tums abler.com. until next time, may the force be with you. ♪ ♪
>> first of all, everybody is welcome and we ask two things when they get here. one, that they try something they've never tried before. be it food or be it dancing or doing something. and if they feel like it was worth their while to tell one person and bring that person, that family member, that friend down the street to come with them. >> we're going to have to do a lot of eating so get ready. >> get ready. and you diet tomorrow.
