Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.), I ask to review physical copies or obtain an electronic copy of the following records and to review and papers records, which I understand to be held by your agency, including any reports, memoranda, communications, or any other writings, as defined in section 6252(e) of the California Government Code, pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Cal. Gov’t Code §§ 6250 et seq.).
All communications associated with the independent workforce housing preservation taskforce since the formation of the taskforce.
Please produce these on a rolling weekly basis. For example please search and produce all the records available for the week of April 22, 2019.
Then, search for and produce all the records available for the week of April 15, 2019, and so on, going back to the formation of the taskforce recommended by the original At Home report. Responsive records will not only include all emails, attachments, hand-delivered reports, and calendar entries produced or sent to members of the taskforce but also any discussion of “NOAH,” “Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing” or “Naturally Occurring Low-Income Housing” in any record produced by any council employee or employee of the department of housing and community developer or the the city administrator’s office.
Please note that the requester reserves the right to limit the scope of this request after initial batches of records are produced.
If you determine that any or all or the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, I ask you to note whether, as is normally the case under the Act, the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information. If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested.
In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.
Please note that neither emails nor phone numbers can be redacted from a public record. If you have a question about this, please contact the head of enforcement for the Public Ethics Commission.
