VI.          Decorative Plant Services Lease (Discussion & Recommendation): Review the Draft Lease as submitted by the PUC/Bureau of Land Management (Recommend or not recommend to the SECF Commission for approval). Since Decorative Plants is still in negotiation with PUC/BCLM regarding maintenance of building/repairs, Commissioner Maxwell moved and Commissioner Hardin seconded to recommend to the full Commission that Decorative Plants continue negotiation with PUC/BCLM until a final lease is complete.

VII.          Public Comment
Commissioner Hardin opened the floor for public comments.
(Speaker cards were made available)

a)          Mr. Francisco Da Costa stated that at the onset he supports the commissioners, appreciates the wisdom from Mrs. Espanola Jackson and Commissioner Maxwell, and is grateful for the direction that Dr. Moses has provided; however, he has several concerns regarding the following: He would like Decorative Plants to consider using solar energy as their main energy source; he suggests that horticulture courses be made available to the community by CCSF and/or Decorative Plants; would like outreach incorporated into the Decorative Plants lease; and last, he would be supportive if mitigation monies were set aside to compensate the community for sewage from surrounding cities being directed to Southeast Sewage Treatment Plant.

b)          Mr. James Morrison expressed concern regarding Decorative Plants not living up to their lease and felt the community has not benefited any by having Decorative Plants as tenants of Southeast. Mr. Morrison wanted the PUC to consider opening up the lease for bid, Request for Proposal, instead of renewing Decorative Plants’ lease. Commissioner Hardin indicated that PUC/BCLM pointed out that Decorative Plants are in compliance. And, that Mr. Morrison has been provided information that Decorative Plants has complied with what has been asked for in the lease.

Mr. Caruso of Decorative Plants indicated the company is in compliance – that they do in fact train their workers and have tired to work with CCSF in initiating horticulture classes at CCSF but have been unsuccessful. Also, that Decorative Plants’ new hires are within the 94124 area.

c)          Ms. Espanola Jackson had concerns regarding not being made available the draft lease of Decorative Plants. Joseph Tham indicated that confidentiality was the reason the draft lease could not be made available to the general public. He stated it had to be recommended by the Commission and approved by PUC/BLCM before it becomes public record. Ms. Jackson also spoke about the history of inception of the Southeast building (1800 Oakdale) and the financial obligations that were stipulated to in the City agreement.

VIII.          Adjournment

Commissioner Maxwell moved and Commissioner Hardin seconded to adjourn the Facility Committee meeting at 2:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Commission Secretary
