In response to inquiries to sub-tenancy, Mr. Joe Tham of PUC/Commercial Land Mgmt. (dept. charged with both management of the 1800 Oakdale Facility and Greenhouse, and negotiating lease agreements with tenants of City-owned buildings under the SFPUC) stated that as a tenant CCSF/Southeast does have a clause in their lease agreement allowing them to sublet (at the same rate they lease the space from the City so it is not a profit making endeavor) after notification of intent to sublet to the PUC/Commercial Land Management and the Commission (entities that sign the lease agreement). Commissioner Brown inquired what more the Commission might do to remind CCSF of the requirement to notify the PUC/ Commission before sub-letting space in the Facility since this has happened several times in the past. Mr. Tham suggested perhaps the Commission request the City Attorney's office to draft another letter reiterating the requirements of the (lease) agreement. Deputy City Attorney Robert Bryan suggested that continued discussion on this matter would be appropriate for "closed session".

Commissioner Looper moved and Commissioner Brown seconded to accept the Director's Report. Motion passed.
