of the program it is to make sure the pro program is safe for all not just workable for the shutter yours but for muni passersby for san francisco pedestrians we've sent you photographs over the past few months documenting situations where muni buses are not able to pull in with the shuttle is blocking the bus zone on the muni bus has to be if a traffic lane and sent you that over the period of time it is not just once occasionally throughout the city that is relevant because we want you to know this program needs to be made savor this didn't address anything like the questioning the legitimate or the non-liquidity under the section of why there was a quick
12:14 pm
exception as opposed to the least providing for the analysis a negative declaration the idea is that the pilot program you've authorized to run to the end of the year it was cut short nevertheless of the data analysis that pushed for what you approved as a permanent program and again, even though state law says that's illegal you don't have a data for the rainy period for december and for people people with disabilities so push through that resolution please. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> >> (calling names). >> good afternoon decorations my name is john i'm a member the alamo square association and the society member of the hayes
12:15 pm
valley a resident on has a street near which there are several pickup and drops off my constructive analysis of commuting down the peninsula i've used car and bikes to do much i feel this proposal recommendation by the board of supervisors which is also the board of ss c articulation is sound and meets all the needs of the people on commuter shuttles and the residents in the community near it it meets the needs that were 10u7b8d impressed e expressed by alamo square to not allow double decker i tourists around the square the commuter shuttles at the same dimensions as the tourist buses going through
12:16 pm
alamo square those points i'll share with you my general pardon me absolute support of this recommendation and the amendments for we two work together to develop an effect route to continuity to and from san francisco you know about to open up a new apple haerltdz 13 thousand people will be working for apple incorporated other fork of people living in san francisco and needing to travel mrs. support this recommendations from the board of supervisors. >> thank you, sir next item, please. >> (calling names). >> thank you. i'm a behaving e paiveng the resolution contains 10 specific items your

12:18 pm
with it should have recommended in august of 2014 as i testified here on february 2nd the news state ceqa guidelines my require an eir we're concerned with safety protection for vulnerable pedestrians clearly a hub based approach for the shuttle will provide that for vulnerable pedestrians and the second whereas clause the resolution states that an extensive analysis was conducted a categorically untrue you must know the data presented in november covered 2014 to 2015 but omitted 38 of the remaining seven months data you need to direct the sustainable streets.
12:19 pm
>> thank you thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon i'm doug i represent 12 thousand teamsters the city and county of san francisco and one hundred thousand in northern california to be frank i'm a little bit frustrated to, here on this issue like many things in san francisco this seems to be a referendum on much bigger issues and i don't want to make light of the issues of affordable housing and gentrification and income and equality the role of the tech factor in those issues we're right there on the sharing those concerns, however, i would say that maybe some people are paint two aboard a brush and attacking tech we can point to
12:20 pm
works of facebook and apple and others companies that are getting a piece of pie and doing something to address the equality by organizing our unions so the one thing that everyone agrees on this in actuation is the importance of labor harmony pieced i want to thank the mta for sticking to that and just to remind i as discussion and debate about the program for us there needs to be a program that the users of the shuttle support and the tech companies without a program we can't fill the harmony labor component thank you very much next item, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon ms. taylor i'm fran among other things a retired member of the graphical
12:21 pm
communication workers of america and just to echo the concerns of the brother before me support the drivers and want to make their drivers easier not driving the monsters down the small residential streets they sort of attract this hatred and not directed at the drivers they're doing their jobs on the system you have control over that i support 24 to create the hutchings that will make everybody happier unless you're a person that has been given everything you want muni forward i support basically has initiated stop xhoelsz we've seniors have to washer favorite and it failures the grid system we center to transfer more why are we having to the tier system
12:22 pm
where muni riders have to transfer and keep one seat ride for mostly young and ableled bodies downtown or wherever the hubs and those buses i've seen the number of buses they're not full and it will be much more efficient to fill up a and leave full you could have fewer buses i don't want to getting get rid of of buses but will be easier to navigate the streets. >> >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon good afternoon i support the one year hub analysis and the housing studies the bay area study supports this scale
12:23 pm
program and licks the less impact on the neighborhood and by supporting the neighborhood freeway system you'll be able to move all the people in a this manner and appropriately now i think you need to due diligence to understand what i'm talking about you need to on co-. to 24th street and church between 7 o'clock in the morning and obviously the 20 plus commuter buses that transverse that intersection with the 48 that are operating on 20 sdrarlz they and they're not time they're one minute apart and bunch in gaps and you ought to see the congestion on 24th street i can't express any frustration and have the garbage trucks once or twice a week and
12:24 pm
the delivery trucks if you want to understand how well, that is thought-out the bay area council and see how it's committed stand with me on 24th street and church you'll understand the magnitude of the impact on those streets that you've got buses that make right turns that slows down everything go to 24th street and castro and 0 see those buses the a.m. and p.m. you'll understand i don't understand how we couldn't have had a eir at the beginning of this program with the delays and xhoej in noah valley i want to express my opinion to due diligence and see you at 24th street and church. >> >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. >> this motivator matter was
12:25 pm
twice before the board of supervisors we could see from the planning department and those representing the mta that they were favoring the buses that are not muni buses and if you're especially overseeing who represent the physically challenges and the elderly if you don't represent the constituents of san francisco then it is time for you not to be sitting here we've seen there this through the taxi commission that is about the precautionary principle which i'm sure none of you have read so the precautionary principle that is law states that adverse impacts to evaluate what is happening and you've haven't done that so are the to meetings we've had at the board of supervisors a lot of us clearly stating what should be done
12:26 pm
but what you are all doing playing ping-pong we don't have time to waste you say your time is precious we be our time is precious i'm here to state that that you are analytic the seniors lay our lines on the roads so you'll get a clear message don't think i'm blue river again and again again, we see when we and you have to work together to help those who most need help you shove them to the side that will for the be reported to i'm not bluffing i'm not bluffing someone should form a committee to see the adverse impacts on the seniors and the exchanged
12:27 pm
next item, please. >> (calling names) who is the last person to turn in a speaker card. >> timber. >> hello tom through the south beach apartments considering this started as a give away a corporate give away with whatever they wanted to do they could do the shorted monument it is obviously we need a home based system for what we've got going the waste only the streets are going to be easier if it is a week street system to tell us which one will break first, because of the extra weight i don't like the idea we're adding diesel we
12:28 pm
should be reducing diesel hubs, of course, those buses should not be leafing until their full and shouldn't be waiting and shouldn't be dropping off one or two people and driving on the streets on a third of the bus open their last stop the overhead i don't think how much time i have 51 seconds a. >> everyone is stepping off a bus should have a muni fast pass if they board at the bus stop or get off we're taking a little bit of money and sharing it with muni thank you for that one a plan to make all the buses wheelchair assessable should be implemented immediately the buses - should find a little
12:29 pm
bit of hubs we don't need the - they should be able to board muni aprons waiting going their direction within the city especially they your honor, return to san francisco thank you for your time. >> next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> those are the last to people that turned in speaker cards. >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon committee members i'm tony's work with the senior and gakt action we work with seniors and people with disabilities, transportation is part of overall quality of life focus or lens, if you will, that we look at in advocating for the people that we serve the buses provide or they pose
12:30 pm
many different issues particularly i would say at the other most issues of safety i've seen big buses the neighborhoods their cumbersome and quite frankly they seem to be out of place the idea of the straddle hub or where the younger technology worker can come and take those bikes and come and take the busses to their employment is practice than the buses that cause more congestion the neighborhood particularly noah valley neighborhood you know you see where folks have gotten into near misses you know taking tech shuttle buses and people inconventions by stopping
12:31 pm
that is farther done than their regular city attorney stop that is a safety hazard some folks don't know where their at and it exasperates congestion that is already there i'll just try to convey to you the seniors and the people with disabilities we make up a large part of population here in san francisco and aging in place is something as a city that is a policy that we try to locate seriously and transportation being a big part next item, please. >> (calling names) the last speaker card. >> hi seiu 10 to one thank you for having us. board of supervisors board of directors i want to recognize the work of the supervisors and the work of our staff at mta coming together the last two weeks and discussing the aspects
12:32 pm
of this permanent time program look to low and behold i want you know, i think there is sill still two outstanding issues the board of supervisors will look at we can exhaustive improve to address the riders and sfmta i look forward and hope you adopt the resolution that drafts some of the concerns moving temporarily fast forward what are the alternatives you know do we have just those stops or hubs do we have a combination how to deal with moving forward could we get more white sdwoenz a combination of things as well what are the other mitigations with other concerns you've obviously seen the community and others raise both enforcement and pulling up the shuttle buses and making sure our muni
12:33 pm
services have not yielded interrupted we've been dialoguing and i look forward to your support on the supervisors resolution moving forward temporarily and exploring the enthusing for housing as well as looking at had a are the aelths to look at the shuttle out of the red zone thank you. >> michael. >> thank you i'm michael i'm a member of save muni which is an organization that is intentionally advancing the work of municipal railroad railway we've addressed the busses we're doing a better job than the city has done not a real eir done on this job anybody that lives in noah valley is completely invebz and
12:34 pm
not right our regular citizens should take a backdoor to commercial issues. >> is there anyone else who wishes to speak on this item. >> bruce okay bruce. >> come forward. >> this way i canned see whom i'm talking to this - >> good afternoon mr. chairman members of the board
12:35 pm
i'm available to answer any questions you may have a bruce and as you may know i've been a proponent of access to muni for almost and the easiest way possible and i also letting anything other than the muni buses and office of the city administrator any other vehicles allowed by your existing should be - i've already seen many instances where people like myself we're to use to leave the sidewalk to get to their way
12:36 pm
that is deployed because another familiar or what do they call those things the bus zone i don't think that is the way you want to be safe the city those things cause a hazard a potential hazard to all of us in wheelchairs and i know that from personally seeing what happened on a weekly was not a daily basis so i think it is a bad idea and i think that if we allow this to happen it can happen in other other plays we don't want that. >> >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> mr. chairman no one else has
12:37 pm
submitted a speaker card. >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon jeff here on behalf of the supervisor wiener supervisor couldn't be here but asked me to deliver a whatever he sent to the board of supervisors i have copies for everyone not to make any changes to the computer shuttle program they're to unravel the program making it harder for r50ir8dz to rides the shuttles and not making it harder to commute by bus the changes will not improve the program but lead to a program of interrupting this is massive solutions not to put people into private vehicles please support the program it is vetted by the mta staff thank you. >> thank you is there anyone
12:38 pm
from the public that wishes to speak seeing none, let's see. >> members of the public. >> yes. i'd like to start mr. maguire a few clarifying questions if you wouldn't mind my first question is around the studies we want to do i think we've mentions air quality monitoring, we've mentioned influencing the housing costs and displacement i want to get a sense of what that adds to the sfmta the sense of any burden of costs will we that role those into someone else or shift those into the first programs and the into the shuttle program. >> i know that the shuttle program is a cost recovery no net costs to the magnifying mta we believe all the analyze be done at no extra costs to the
12:39 pm
mta. >> how is that adoption of the program help us shift the buses off the small streets that's a concern. >> i'm glad you mentioned that a number of items shifting the large vehicles off the streets and the full fund and those provisions were the program will go listed in 2015 we'll continue to go forward so those provisions will remain in place. >> excellent he completely hear the concerns of you'll our muni riders about striving for safety as we manage the sfmta buses and the counterpart shuttle this program every time we say we can continue to manage individual stops and continue to manage individuals corporate
12:40 pm
shuttle programs and continue to make the changes; correct? >> yes. from the enforcement point of view but from a legislative point of view and a working relationship with the 14ur89 providers our staff will be able to work with their staff to prevent issues from out of hand. >> one last question he promise i see where we'll be recapping the as to the at 1 hundred and 25 12079s will 3 inquisitive are or exist for this implementation of the program and be the subject of review as we redefine the program. >> yes. in effect for the year of the program. >> perfect don't tough. >> directors. >> i do have a few questions i hear people talking about safeties this resolution didn't address safety in any way i mean, i'm perplexed by that did
12:41 pm
we look at the drive safety or taxicabs or the issues of safety with the disabled and other people of today i don't see how this solves that the safety programs we have the program today and in the existing. >> he can do. >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon. thank you directors i'm hanging program manager under the program that is this board approved in november a requirement that every drive take a safety course that is geared towards driving larger vehicles the city and it is something we will hope to be spraefd as wide and using whatever the regulatory methods to - we're not aware of others cities implementing that is one
12:42 pm
of the main safety sort of requirement we have and all the cpu c requirements for the commercial drivers. >> i guess i mean, i'm just i think that's interesting in terms of the program i'm not- i'm not unclear why sfmta does the study not the planning department and the those portion what is intended that mta will do with the results of the study upon getting them and talk about the scope the desire principles are corridor and how the corridors are over laying the transportation and been deny in new york city how closer to subway stops where are we saying we should change the muni routes
12:43 pm
i mean the larger finding will be that transportation in general whether it is located; however, costs are more expensive i'm trying to figure out what is the outcome will we hang the general plans for the housing element and under the general plan the principle 1.2 about alternatives to private memorabilia how we see this whole thing out. >> that's a great question the first was why is mta doing the study it is written so that the mta board we ask the director the idea to find an extra subject matter not transportation staff produce finding related to housing as for the bigger question the idea
12:44 pm
of the study related to housing to provide finding back to find an ultimate decision beyond the one year period so your i think your objection is correct a relationship between the housing costs and other things the idea of the study to get provide an overall study. >> this is studying all transportation not just the shuttle. >> it is transportation. >> and then i have thank you in terms of the shuttles that are making the. >> the vehicle trips. >> vehicle trips. >> 84 percent intercity that's right. >> with the valuation shows in
12:45 pm
the pilot 75 percent of trips for the intercity 25 percent this ignores the intercity didn't fit the program so hospitals and things like that a lot of them are doing their own thing not reflected the numbers. >> the other issues we've talked about the program the issue of our prioritization of our non-private automobile use and the general plan that talks about the matter i don't know how i mean, i guess the challenge how do you measure that has not happened the harder thing to do like how could you measure whether or not it is relied to ridership or other things i mean it operationally is going to be interesting to determine you have to look at the other patterns we've seen to
12:46 pm
determine whether or not it is trouble able to the counterpart shuttles. >> that's right we'd like to be certain building on this evaluation it is important because of the evaluation we know far more about commuter shuttles but more that is beyond what people like in an evaluation i think the answer to our question what we do with the finding they will mostly see what the findings are in a year time we'll know more about that and . >> i guess isn't it true those are going to leave the city. >> hanging referred to the continuity shuttle program a
12:47 pm
volunteery and mother leg will i available parking spaces. >> will we look at ridership behavior for example, there is a lot of research around what distances between stops or even like two year final destinations it is important to understand you know we're not changing without where it is located this is it is what it is and certainly can't necessarily make the personal choices where people locate it is useful to understand the other side of the evaluation increases people driving their cars it is a far greatest safety hazard on the street driving everyday i don't know if it is part of this. >> that issue will be a very important thing to study whether people continue to ride
12:48 pm
shuttles. >> any way to look at this the first time around the traffic was horrific and it is because people were commuting any way to do a comparable analysis from that pedestrian to this if all the factors remain the same for the streets today. >> it is a good suggestion to explore the long term data. >> great, thank you. >> director rubke. >> so i think for, thank you for all the work i appreciate all the work that staff did in attempting to address those important issues i support this program from the stand point of leaving the congestion in our caltrain and other transportation system so the people will not take the private automobiles and appreciate the wonderful things that staff has done a few follow-up questions
12:49 pm
wanting to make sure we're going to do this study and look at this for the next year and this. >> next speaker. >> is not saying we'll drop the program completely or things like that so before the year expires we'll move from tell you that's correct. >> and a clarification on the stop caps so how many stops do we currently have i mean will this undo anything that staff has done. >> one and 25 is the current number of stops. >> so we're not adding any. >> that's correct. >> and i think a lot people have asked this this is not preventing us from coming back and looking at some of the safety issues; right? to make sure on the muni driver's side we have a way to address do
12:50 pm
accessibility concerns that helps with the passengers i'll cognizant of that myself and my understanding and staff you guys have confirmed this but put it on the public record the buses our muni buses are priority at the bus stops and the passersby with the disability can ask the bus to stop before unloaded them or letting them on the bus that's right. >> you want to speak to that. >> yeah. the answer is yes the muni buses have a priority in terms of assessing the bus stops wherever possible the muni buses get access to the zones one thing i didn't mention we will be sending out a blood sugar level to all the muni drivers
12:51 pm
updating them on the latest program but pulling to the curve is essential and they have to maybe wait or something like that in a shuttle is blocking. >> the one last question a member of the public brought up the idea or the point of making sure that the private shuttles are wheelchair assessable i realize this as volunteer program and limited jurisdiction is that something we can kind of apply some pressure i definitely as a a member of the disability community people in wheelchairs have trying to get to the jobs as well. >> that's mostly an issue of federal and state law so i i don't know whether what sort of requirements for the busses and whether they have assessable lifts and things like that but something we can
12:52 pm
examine and we go forward with the program and include that as an incentive. >> thanks again for all the thank you for all your hard work. >> thank you director nolan and all the staff that's been working on this mr. williams it good work and clearly something that we all care about deeply when we choose to move forward with the program before i think we were all under the - we were assuming we were going to have to tweak that it needed work and feels it still needs work maybe more formally than originally thought would do the trick i want to make a couple of things clear to i think for
12:53 pm
myself i'm equally supportive of the shuttle serves as someone that has gone up and down the peninsula regularly there are only effect not to privatize transit but actually to audible the traffic that is not there to get up and down the peninsula not where it needs to be so someday i'm working daily to fix that and we some of us have been working on getting us anymore transit for well over decades on this area issue and i'm for one as someone who understands how hard to park a car the city i'm grateful there are options for people to take to get to work that reduce the demands of private vehicles on the streets which includes vehicles get in the way of the buses all the time that includes
12:54 pm
reducing the private vehicles that are a danger to pedestrians and bicyclists i saw a woman almost get hit is she stilt here she almost get hit and a car in front of the city hall every car out there whether we want to acknowledge it including the cars we drive are a treat to everyone else that is the street if we can give options or private companies to give opts o options to get cars out of the streets and to improve your performance time doing everything we can to work with them to make that all happen i do believe there is terrific room for improvement the safety thing is real those transit corporations or shuttle service providers need to understand this is a real challenge for
12:55 pm
people who are wheelchaired or have a hard time getting on and off buses the only thing they're looking when they force the muni to get on the board to have a passengers on and off the 14ur89 we owe it to all the passersby and everyone to grant people the time so unboard and do it safely so there are issues that need to be addressed i appreciate your comments director rubke and i hope we make sure those things become accountable those agencies are more accountable the small streets is another thing that is real and the better routing is clearly a mark and everyone understands we need to find a way to guided confidence in the board of supervisors and everyone else that we're doing everything we can right now that confidence is
12:56 pm
not there i've got confidence in staff we'll would get there but m that confidence is not shared by the board of supervisors i do feel though that with all that said we should move forward with the recommendation i appreciate the amendment i think that there is theeshgz and like to see the busses better marked mr. mason makes his point trucks are driving how am i driving and call my boss that's real we need to be accountable to one another and with that said, i support the resolution and that we should move forward with the amendment. >> okay. thank you read the - >> mr. chairman at this point it will be appropriate for the board to consider the amendment
12:57 pm

1:01 pm
around super bowl city there were unrelated by and large a safe event from a transportation stand point and we've talked about very significant amount of planning and you got updates over the course or 6 months and the adjustment of those plans reality i think modified the good work across the agency and city and again with the public with the super bowl host committee to make sure that went oh, well and the mayor himself mentioned what a good job that the parking control officers were doing there was some media concerns about potential arming geology that didn't materialize and members of the media today received a letter if the mayor acknowledging that the good job
1:02 pm
the atlantic ocean did to make the event successful there was a lot of outreach dozens of community mergers and a lot of that community outreach helped the fentsdz to be successful from a transportation stand point and opened up a day earlier than we were anticipating and thought it was on friday that he finished on thursday night and got an extra day and overall we got a lot of praise not only from the mayor but others very proud find staff that accident the work and formally recognize them at future meetings and kind of close the loop on super bowl i know you'll recall when you adopted on february 20, 1441, of the things you directed us to do and the resolution that adopted

1:04 pm
today one of the i don't remember this is one of the 24 i feel like every other month the polk street bike lane and out here once again it has won an award this was the american society of the civil engineers the bay area or northern california chapter named it as one of the most outstanding trails projects oh, i guess that is california wide so yet another anyone who rides it or goes by it seize it and just we continue to get recognized if a around the state and country for the project and finally next monday people will start to see some existing changes coming to mission street mission street the mission which is when would we'll start of the
1:05 pm
communication of 14 and mission rapid transit we'll be painting the red transit lanes from market street will be consolidating bus stops and restrictions and putting in busy holds and requiring signal improvements and other improvements on mission if here 11 street to randell to the mission district mission street will be improved for people no matter if their traveling onramp muni 50 thousand times a day people ride munching and anticipate saving up to 5 minutes that is a lot of time saved but not just about the time but increasing the reliability and so through those changes the red lanes the signal
1:06 pm
priorities and bulbs not only will the time are shorter but more consistent people will not have to spend as much time and i can't wait for that working and 49 and taking the right direction and the 49 and beyond. >> you and other 50 thousand people will be repeating the benefits of it so this is a demonstration also have how we're spending the money that the voters authorized us $4 million prop a the go bond that was supported by the voters with vision zero this project does both so relatively short order get our approval and now we're up to date it into the ground the full project will be finished in the winter a
1:07 pm
majority of the improvements will be done by the ends of march so very excited about that everyone will see it soon and president's report. >> thank you director reiskin. >> i wanted to agree with director borden that mission project the changes to the street will be huge i can't wait to see those i'm slightly concerned we'll see the cars choose to use valencia student i hope we can have a champion project for valencia street that will make that more attractive for cyclists if you use the valencia street rush hour seeing all the double parked cars if we can put that on the streets we'll have a vision to behold and more cyclists then we thought i want to put that out there as a suggestion. >> thank you. >> another questions are we
1:08 pm
good evening to add more buses everyone the 14 right direction is crowded that will speed up things up and do you think this will help i've not been on the 14 right direction not crowded so we have been adding service to the mission corridor and will continue to do so one way to reduce the crowding without adding buses eliminate - when the full buses are much full everyone and evening out the frequency of buses but continuing to add buses more end of april for a particular increase for the corridor that is exactly what the the course of this trial p p asked for for
1:09 pm
the 14 is at top of list. >> thank you. >> mr. chairman you have 80 a member of the public that worries about to address you been the issues from director reiskin herbert wiener. >> herbert wiener. >> when i really am concerned is about the money that mta put out a for the super bowl it contributed to the deficit the public will have to pay for this deficit through the services and possible a fair increase that is talked about now this if there really was a football in the super bowl it was the sentences of the super bowl we are kicked and passed and run over i protest mta putting out any money for the super bowl the nfl
1:10 pm
is filthy rich this is an outrage i'll not thank mta for doing this. >> anything else seeing none, okay ms. bloomer. >> moving forward the citizens advisor report so. at this time, members of the public may address the commission on items of interest to the public that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the commission except agenda items. with respect to agenda items, first speaker will be herbert wiener >> followed by patrick. >> in muni forward use the term trade off and this is because this reflects the consolidation of bus stops a nation of bus stops forcing people to walk long distance this is a trade off now in contrast burden that is placed by seniors and the
1:11 pm
disabled i am wondering if a proper term would be sacrifice and if seniors today they're being sacrificed and paratransit is recognized as angle alternative does any recommendation remain in the budget for increased paratransit? i think this is really important and also instead of sacrifice i'm wondering if this planning for muni forward shouldn't benefit everyone i think the seniors seniors and the disabled have the same rights as bicyclists they have all benefit from the planning i'm wording wondering the decrease and consolidations of bus stops improves the transportation permanent not so what we're seeing right now
1:12 pm
is muni going forward with the same wrongful solutions to the detriment of everyone and millions if not billions of dollars spent on that >> patrick followed by (calling names). >> thank you. i'm patrick i'm requesting that this board introduce amending the san francisco vehicle code quickly as you may know the vehicle code prohibits subways on sidewalks i see them on sutter street daily but san francisco vehicle code regarding hover boards which operate similar to segues

1:24 pm
hundred bucks sitting the wrong seat and the money that is a panned out to the corporate entities mayor ed lee gets on his knees to help them and this board goes along with this board it is a biased board and usually thinking only about corporate interests and if you do anything against the interests they'll pull your plug be more honesty when you make the decisions now rate muni fairs they should be free countering money you're raising the tax bases the city plus all corporate heralds and they can easily fund the muni we've paid it many times over my rather than increase the fairs it should be free to everyone

1:26 pm
kathy. >> good afternoon decorations i'm kathy the policy and program manager with walk sf and i'm here today to urge you to keep the crosswalk on masonic and mcallister on the staff memo states the south leg of the crosswalk would be open but not planning because of low pedestrian volumes i want to share with you the reasons why walk sf asks to keep it on it is not painted the crosswalk is not painted so the large majority of public does know that an unpainted crosswalk is legal people don't know they're allowed to cross that might be attributing to the low pedestrian use we think if the medium is put in with not
1:27 pm
crossing people will cross there anyway, the staff murdering in one hour how many crows in a day those people will still cross wall a legitimate crossing cars won't are expecting them? extremely short sighted to go through a huge expensive capital improvement plan and not implement the best practices for the short block that is viable for public safety and walkability and we all know another important thing to keep in mind we know that land use changes and our transportation extra is always raising to keep up with the changes we think we should expect for people to walk the location the future we don't know the entry the park will change let's get ahead of that now with at crossing so we don't have to add it later and the
1:28 pm
pedestrian strategy to open and close crosswalks this does the option we want this to be built right to start thank you. >> thank you. >> director borden. >> yes. could we get mr. maguire to answer the questions okay. thank you. >> thank you so i think my southern is i walked up and look at the intersection and based on the memos if staff and the drawings i understand the dilatation inclination to not a crosswalk so the medium will run all the way across from the walk it is signed no left turn if you're coming down masonic not supposed to turn into mcallister there's
1:29 pm
been 4 collisions with the bikes and pedestrian i assume that's car on car. >> from the sfmta thank you for having me to respond to these questions regarding the intersection of mcallister and ma optimistic the promoted design is on the overhead right here it is right now would have a contiguous medium cross mcallister intersection this is out of the community design from 2008 to 2012 and it was a preferred design 4 staff explored having the crosswalks marked and opened and we looked it a sidewalk design at the intersections you know for the city so we we establish it and have a schizophrenic crosswalks
1:30 pm
the minimum is 20 people per hour as our memo sites when we counted 4 people crossing at both locations north and south locations the intersection at the same time 60 people crossing along mcallister we look at the adjacent land use and as you can see from the overhead picture the current sporting facility and looking at the guidelines we drafted did memo and talked with the stakeholders in 2014 as the memo was dated saying we are going to close both legs the crosswalk we came up with the decision after a long process being it is 2016 right now and we take it strongly to actually take the recommendation recommending closing the crosswalk so - >> thank you for that
1:31 pm
information i do understand that that playing field at usf not mile-an-hour intention to change the uses i believe their going on a project to redo that playing field it is there are for the long run i'm inclined go ahead and support this but i'll see what my fellow commissioners have to say i understand the rational not open this one i believe there is an elementary school on the street not too far up as well i'm also wondering the way the hill say, i understand that crosswalk can be dangerous at an uncontrolled intersection this will are we intending to put signs no crossing but at the
1:32 pm
crosswalk. >> right? we'll have the signage to notify the pedestrian. >> if you're a speaker they're short blocks the muni stop is at fulton three hundred and 50 feet away there is crosswalks and it helps to establish this project the $28 million as far as transit and bicycle safety by having the medium as contiguous to the second sense the crossing of the vehicle crossing for the transit reliability and perhaps bicycle safety. >> okay. >> all right. i am inclined to support this but i'll see what my fellow commissioners have to say if anyone has an opinion >> i - i appreciate walk sf and others brought to your attention as a regular
1:33 pm
pedestrian there is nothing that is so frault as running into the signs that is a don't cross here as a pedestrian and i am looking for ways to actually slow down the traffic i feel that traffic moves too fast and anytime we can get and make it so that the traffic is slowed down by a causation or whatever i think we win there is a great hope for the driverless cars everyone will slow down to void indicate tropics the future so with that said, i will wonder in a staff self-we were to pull this out would we calibrate things like indicate tropical the overhead projection or a matter of a
1:34 pm
switch - we've been at a 100 percent designs for months so a change at this point will potentially increase the cost of project and delay the actual construction of that along the masonic cord. >> that's much worse. >> as much asand.
1:35 pm
>> is there a motion? >> i think all my questions i'll make a motion to approve. >> any further discussion? >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it. >> next speaker, please. >> >> 10.2 amends the transportation code division to add a penalty for fair evasions and passenger conduct violations condominium by youth and other non-substantive provisions john is the member of the public that asked that the item be severed. >> good afternoon. i'm john san francisco has also always been a larger city it is so
1:36 pm
noted in the state but i believe today, i'm asking for the board to recommendation that the muni security that you take the tag books from them you can't have a run. >> dual procedure here because what is happening you have a private citizen signing off tickets the only one that can sign off a sixth is pofrlz or it is considered squabble harassment and in the city there is a lot of people are plays a dual role as far as we know who the district attorney is and city attorney but do we know who the county attorney is i'm asking you to at of right now to have
1:37 pm
them pull that tag book because if we're to go come down on kids you'll have parents coming in here and talking about protesting that will be a major protest you will have no advertising attorneys and has money i'm just giving you the heads up i think that is voices able to pull that tag book the only thing you can do ask them to get off or move to the back the bus you'll have to call the manufacturers to sign off the tickets you're setting users up for a civil suit and go to court later this is why it's not on the front burner.
1:38 pm
>> motion on this one. >> i'm disappeared in was a press story it was all over the news. >> by this action it is essential de, am i correct? the citations for those other issues not increasing enforcement but making the enforcement less pen active. >> there should have been security the first time probably on other. >> we actually needed it in state law but last year that allows us before january 1st, we didn't have the authority. >> so a motion. >> so moved. >> second. >> any further discussion? >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> the i's have it. >> ms. bloomer chairman have you dispenses with item 11 and staff asked that item 13 be
1:39 pm
called ahead of the neck item. >> item has to do with with the contract for the total abandonment of parked vehicles. >> authorizes the director of director doing business as san francisco auto the amount of time not to exceed $65.4 million for a term ending march 31st with the option to extend up to 5 years 30 years the director to execute the bayshore lease for two 21 to extend up to 5 years and amending the transportation code to incorporate the customer tow storage and related fees and to step up the san francisco waiver provisions to non-san
1:40 pm
francisco residents. >> director reiskin. >> yeah. mr. chair and director of finance and technology will present. >> good afternoon. >> thank you that is a simple item i'm going to present it is simply a new contract for our towing services we did a biding process with 3 bids and the current provider auto return won the bid the good news the contract a couple we were recent to reduce the towing fees about 5 percent and we were able to expend the stolen fee waiver fee to everyone so we believe those are very attractive components of this contract and in addition have the cost recovery it is not subsidize by the fairs is we're pleased with the contract and
1:41 pm
i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> i have the whole team if you have any questions and speakers as well. >> introduce the speakers. >> yes. mr. chair one. >> mr. gleason. >> good afternoon directors march with the teamsters union i'm here to support the renewal auto return i give you a little bit of background a little bit over 10 years go the predecessor the workers were looking for improvements tlilt it happens the private sector that's what we're talking about here private sector workers at the tow yard we had to work through those and i'm delighted to say that the years since with the autopsy repair coming in and making improvements and improvements
1:42 pm
certainly in the total environment we presenter working in partnership with auto return to hopefully do something that has not been seen in san francisco and making improvements in something that people oftentimes not happy to have our members have to deal with the public you know certainly not happy to be conducting a business translation but everyone makes the best of it we're proud to get up and fully support this renewal we have members at mta contracts the private section we're working without source works with the fifth and mission and workers from time example time and working with the folks that are collecting the coins at the parking meters and each one of the projects are difficult but
1:43 pm
in auto return a very good partnership and happy to see that continue and i the president to say that we are appreciative of the work with stephen lee and others have done recently and over the years assist the project much better for everyone so thank you. >> board members questioning. >> i'll make a motion but note there is good news what is the decrease the number of twoez over the years that that is amazing 10 years detain thirty thousand a tows due to the information be able made and motion to approve on that good news. >> especially do we pay them and people pay them and they pay us i'm confused how that process. >> the current process is as
1:44 pm
of today, the customer pays auto return not us we're changing that the new contract the customer pays us we'll pay the returns. >> i want to clarify the contract looks like that. >> and thank you director for making that strong point. >> do we have a motion and second >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it. so ordered. >> ms. bloomer. >> a presentation and discussion and possible action for the focusing 17 and 18 capital budget. >> good afternoon again mr. chair and members of the board this is following up on the presentation that we walked through a few woodworks at the workshop in january and give more information and extort city attorney right to surface some of the ideas not a budget proposal at this point just a reminder of what the bottom line
1:45 pm
situation looks like and what things we might want to consider adjusting on the revenue and the expenditure side also looking at a little bit of the capital budget i have a presentation and walk through and want to start off looking at the revenue picture and if we can get the slides up on the screen what you see in terms of revenue this is kind of the big picture of what last year looked like what that this year and the baseline for 2017-2018 okay. so you can see roughly will 20 percent of agencies budget comes from trait fairs and thirty from parking and traffic and from the general fund the major components of the budget so this is just giving you an
1:46 pm
overview of what we work with again if so baseline essentially means we're doing everything we're doing today on the expenditure side by category and this shows that a little bit over 60 percent of the agency budget is going into salaries and as you can see it dwaflz all the on the costs including the towing contract you authorized us and looking at it a different way by division sngz it is more than half the budget is forcing the transit division after that it is sustainable streets but is significant attraction that the budget dollars is going to support muni operations so just a reminder of what is
1:47 pm
the baseline and not and this speaks a little bit to what is driving the changes the base we have included positions that were added during the last two fiscal years that are forming put into the budget the landmark raises for the first floor and we're using the cpi controllers establishment and the pension there you you've heard about for the city and our budget is the bigger drivers the cost of the base and some contracts you've counterfeited by approved by the board but since you've approved them some additional things that have come up the last few months not yet the base but those are among the things we'll consider adding
1:48 pm
one a larger than historic or recently historic caltrain tricks debt service for the next revenue bonds that the capital improvement plan anticipates in 2017 that is for the purchase of the expanded light rail fleet and the higher workers' compensation costs that are here and the transit service increases that the t e p recommended two years ago and rents for a new training facility which we have not yielded yet signed the lease but come to you i believe recently and went to the board of supervisors so just some high-level of things what's in and not on the revenue side we are assuming continuation of the free muni programs for the low and moderate income and people with disabilities the base
1:49 pm
assumes the automatic indexing of the fairs we'll show you some of those it assumes that the populations general find from baseline continues that was was it authorized in prop b and it presumes us some increases the development fees that the planning department is projecting based on the development the city and the fees that come to our budget capital use of those fees and it does include some estimates of cap & trade fund from the state and the operations program which is the name of suggest that see used for operations other cap & trade funds that are part of the capital budget as well we search warrant we don't have yet not the base the base is not
1:50 pm
presuming fund balance we talked about we will anticipate having significant for fined balance maybe double the policy that it requires 10 percent the operating budget we're closer to 20 percent so right now it is close and didn't assume any other potential revenue sources so when we boil that down it is the numbers of the next slide shows we have very modest shaufltz if every year on the billion dollars budget the range of 13 to $14 million and driven by expenditures for revenues and parts of the positions we at in part of the pension costs and other contracts so looking at the revenue sources that the automatic indexing in terms of affairs and
1:51 pm
bans our policy so the base assumes those some are higher and some lower this is a picture for you have what the fairs will do and the board acts differently terms of fee under these not every fee but the more noteworthy ones fairly significant fee increases that is based on a combination of the cost recovery methodologies or cpi increase we used the cost increase methodologies based on the actual costs plus the agency overhead and in some cases the overhead will in the differ including the pension and others issues you'll see many of these
1:52 pm
have big jumps they're adjusted to the cost recovery through the cpi calculation the baseline assumes these are as presented to the extent we want to raise or lower any that will impact the revenue picture but the cost recovery we can't raise them higher than the 100 percent due to prop 26 so nevertheless of some ideas we started dui at the workshop this is not an careful list but some of the ideas we've discussed and some dollar figures and just the footnotes on the bottom the caveat we need to perform a title 6 that the civil service requires the recipient we evaluate the impact to different populations the city so we'll need to before we make thai
1:53 pm
increases and go over bugged doing a title 6 analyze and our cfo wants to us add direction from the board the fury analyze we do it is labor doesn't even and 7, 8, 9 doesn't even so just to guess quibble through those to change the definition of muni that entitles you been to a discount fair and right now actually for the free muni 5 to 18 but the program we define it to 17 and got a lot of feedback we were doing the free muni for youth kids turn 17 in high school i've been talking about with any colleagues other than the region to standard device our fairs karate's region and bart youth is 5 fee telephone and some 6
1:54 pm
and some 18 we've agreed as a arraign to pursue the prioritization the definition to be 5 to 18 which for us means raising the top level from 167 to 18 has an adverse revenue impact the teenagers that are be paying full fair will be paying discount this is a policy that is consistent with the other things we're doing in terms of of making muni assessable to youth particularly those in school the second one on the list is to adjust - to reduce the amount of discounts we provide to youth, seniors and people with disabilities and in the advisory committee of the fact that board has made riding muni free for people in those categories that are of loss and moderate income there is a justification for the
1:55 pm
fairly steep discount by about two-thirds the few fair folks in those categories and so, now that those are lower and moderate income nothing reasonable to consider asking the rest to pay a less discounted rate the thirds one on the list would be to establish a $0.25 premium for riders that are paying in cash in order to inner incentive the clipper card i think you know the issues with pga cash in terms of the back up at the farebox and the more cash out of the system the better we will have to pay attention to to within not having a disprorments - at least one other thing for typewriter in those region many
1:56 pm
around the country and world have done to incentivize people not to use cash a few others one is to there the vendors commissions to make it more trophy position for the vendors to carry ore products like maps and consent calendar today the next one is one that is not a new one but the recognition that the express service that muni provides is a different entire level of service and this is the via the concept of attaching a premium for those services likewise for the a pass the muni plus bart and muni san francisco pass raising it to further the index provides for would be an idea it is fairly significant
1:57 pm
value to riders to use bart in san francisco the last one on the page will be to provide a discount vauvenlt to the lifeline discount for low income adults to provide that same discount to city and nonprofit agencies who purchased tokens and pays for low income populations from the feedback from the public and last thing i mentions on the revenue sources i believe there are some taxi fee waivers the board has previously adopt or included some the baseline and ultimately with the recommendation that some speakers under public comment mentioned, i.e., wanted to point out those are some of the potential revenue changes on the expenditure side those
1:58 pm
first two are really what john halley discussed with you a couple weeks ago the first thing to put forward the additional 2 percent service there with 10 percent in the current budget recommend 12 percent so this is the balance remaining two percent we've not yet can you think by the end of this fiscal year the second bucket is a collection of a number of different things all kind of within the theory of performance enhancements of the muni system it is a number of different things some of which have a more direct connection but all things that kind of from a wish lift are things investments we wanted to be able to make to improve the performance of muni the next one is vision zero
1:59 pm
education i spoke in any director's report about the capital projects moving forward we've talked about some of the enforcement the past if sustainable streets to the police department the education is one that is the half-hearted to secure grants for this is a proposal to have money the operating budget to really sustain more of an education program, i.e., over the vision zero the next one has to do with with maintenance of much of the extra we're increasing putting the streets and working a lot more striping and signage and putting in for traffic signals, and so this is a request to essentially increase the maintenance budget for the folks that are responsible inform maintain all that as you recall a number of years ago four years ago, we we were audited by the controller's
2:00 pm
office that found that we were not at the time, equality investing in the maintenance and since then added a lot of facilities to this is an idea to have our ability to maintain some of those and the last one on this slide is really about kind of the expansion of our demand based pricing model we employed through the process as well do a number of complimentary things to that some of which carry costs moving to the next slide i'm not going to do go through all but surface the ones that the other smaller agencies put forward those are mostly the behind the scenes things by things
2:01 pm
nevertheless, important in terms of being able to increase our hiring input through this meeting of safety improvements and the federal government is putting in basing place a good direction for safety and transit but more work by the staff and having more taxi investors investigators to deal with what is happening and the investments in security and staffing our store rooms we've got more parts that's a good thing and staffing up and even more focused on outreach that is when a controversial item comes before you we don't hear how good or bad our outreach process is this provides for outreach for the many kinds of capital and other projects that we deal with so those are some of the ideas
2:02 pm
on the revenue and expenditure side i don't know if you want to paused now for discussion or keep on going and wait to the end. >> i'd like to go to the ends and have public comment and then discussion. >> okay. >> just a few slides to respond to things that came up during the workshop one what work orders their work orders that we have with other city agencies the different kind of categories of service that you see shown on the slide this is the history that is fairly flat compared to the growth of the overall budget on the last item we're not spend $10 million a year to support the traffic companies the mayor took that out the rest are largely things services we're buying and sharing the costs of the rise
2:03 pm
over the cost of time the next slide gives us a picture of the fund balance so again on at billion dollars bunt the policy requires one million dollars worth of funds balance with us the projection is over 200 and thirty so this gives us more than one million dollars dollars above the fund balance we could spend in this budget for operating or capital and recommend capital but still maintain the boards 10 percent possess eaten the final follow-up slides this came in with relationship of the idea of cash premium or premium of $0.25 or some level for people to pay cash versus clierp that is a higher percentage of low income folks that pay by cash not a huge
2:04 pm
difference cross the income spectrum but one that he well have to study very careful and probable make some extraordinarily efforts to make sure that low income people are not disprorms entangled should the board go forward with a cash differential those are follow-up items on the operating budget and then quickly on the capital budget a much new view you've seen here are the main drivers i'll not read those things that koirment into the 5 year window and try to capture the best we can projecting the future grants whether formula or discretionary this is symsomewhat of their projection we could our best - the next slide with the exception of the strau along the
2:05 pm
process that is a good thing more or less a funding picture so on the mine categories of safer streets and state of good repair the levels are consistent where they are the 5 year cpi it changes because we have some much rendering with the central subway that is less in the current cpi the next the breakdown of what the $2.9 billion dollars looks like and as you can see the largest chunk is fleet as we complete the rough fleet replacement and start rail the light rail fleet replacement and the straw remains a big cushion but the streets what used to be separated into bike and
2:06 pm
pedestrian safety and others projects are delivered together that's in one bucket now, one of the more sixth parts the capital budget and the transit guide way that is basically, the state of good repair of the transit system the rails and signals and swichlz and the overhead wires this is generally the way the picture look at the moment sgriven driven by the funding source for the skyway we get the funding for the sprau we can't use we're committed to the volunteers or voters we can spend the prop a general go bond funds not a ton of discretion between the two categories and one thing if i didn't say it
2:07 pm
right now this is going to anticipate the next two review measures that were recommend by the mayor's task force the license mission fee in the 2017-2018 as we develop the cpi and the discussions about what might or not on this november other than 2018 ballot change the cpi review to incorporate both of those the next slide just slow in some of the large categories what the projects might look like these are the ones for the first and foremost currently undergo the capital improvement plan development process and the kinds of things that you will see as we bring forward did capital budget which will be bringing forward the 2 year and cpi asking you to consider the
2:08 pm
operating budget between now and april that slide shows transit and now kind of some of the miscellaneous other category so of these are well development and ready to go this give us an idea as you recall the spreadsheet was vast to give you a essence 0 so it concludes the presentation not a recommendation painting the picture of the current landscape and talking about expenditure and the operating budget mainly to seek your and the public's facebook i don't know if i want to pass it or include it we have the next rest of the process that we'll be undergo and sharing and going to the cca not
2:09 pm
just in this room for feedback. >> decorations if you ask clarifying questions i'd like to hear them and move on to public comment before we give our feedback anybody clarifying questions can we go to public comment. >> one speaker indicated an interest herbert wiener. >> a few more it is rumored. >> herbert wiener point of clarification my understanding is when prop a a was passed fair increases were contingent about the muni performance which is clearly not been the case and i believe that was passed by the voter in 2000 so before you raise any fairs or do any of the fair restructuring
2:10 pm
you have to see that legally capable what was passed for years this is going on where there are increases but nolo contendere have an opportunity increase in service this is staring the public the eye everyday thank you, mrmr. wiene >> next speaker. >> >> a couple of items disabled fair 50 percent is tough disabled senior is tough no increase in the cost of living from the federal and everything is going up you're not under yet
2:11 pm
you don't feel the crunch 50 percent is a hard number one number and caltrans it is bart i don't want to say impoverished teenagers have a problem hoping over fences or trying to over gates transportation the city and the bay area needs to be free to even people not free but people that will i am poeshd needs to be able to ride we don't need them to feel like they've illegal that's important the new buses we're getting rattled just as bad as the old busy of the on 989 and 044 whatever the new numbers they rattled on van ness like anything else we should be able to build a rattle free bus
2:12 pm
okay. so at least in the beginning they're one thousand-year-old and the rider from the shuttle 8 thousands of them they should have a muni pass that would be a nice increase on the taxis i see taxis up there but no uber or lyft and i remember that gavin newsom what we have the crash is muni riders $2 and some odd cents but really $6 i'd like to know what it is now. >> thank you. >> that's the last person that turned in a speaker card. >> one more. >> thank you good afternoon peter straus with the san francisco trait riders a few quick comments first of all, we're in support of dpaeven the
2:13 pm
cash and clipper fairs and position that as a clierp discount rather than a surcharge with respect to the bus fairs i have concerns but not taken a position yet i wanted to note that the main thing i want to observe though i can't help noticing that the revenue sources identified are all on the side of transit riders and even on the expenditure side a number of manufacture which are really driver related but management fees and the vision zero and the sustainable streets no revenue sources that are identified that is entirely inappropriate i think that come up with someone i hope you'll consider the sunday parking rates i'll add that perhaps he
2:14 pm
did we support full fines you might consider discounting that and maybe that will make that or some of the fire stone we had last time but sunday need to be considered and other measures towards our riders not just transit riders are put in place. >> thank you, mr. straus. >> like control back. >> all right. so as mr. ed reiskin said this is the second time this is before us and so that would be good if we could get input from the directors any feedback from director reiskin or the layouts director borden would you like to start. >> no i'd like to wait. >> okay director reiskin please.
2:15 pm
so i of the wondering if such a nerdy question not the breakdown is the debt service for the - are those somebody explain like what bonds are and why it is not the base is that optional or something we've not issued where is that. >> so those are for bonds we've not issued we've done 3 series off issuance between 2013 and 2012 and 2014 that next proposed issuance is in 2017 if we include that and approve that as part of capital budget we'll put that in some things railroad were not in the base because the timing when the third floor they came that we again include them some of the things we absolutely have to accommodate we'll be recommending the 2017 issuance because that is a big part of
2:16 pm
how we fund our light rail vehicle fleet we're fully committed to we'll incorporate the debt services for the 2018 services into the second year of the operating budget and subsequent years. >> go ahead director borden. >> can you, you remind us of the fair bus. >> the last data i saw around thirty percent so that $2 to have dollars is probably close to i don't know if we have any more data. >> sorry to contradict it used to be thirty but close to 27. >> what's at national standard. >> it depends on. >> so you know from rail operating and right-of-way we don't have to rail operating to bus it kind of comes down the
2:17 pm
stretch i believe we're certainly lower than bart for the right-of-way and higher than than the transit the bus system closer to the muni lines and get a a benchmark if you like but given the system and the operational kind of challenge of the system it is respectedable but for the high ridership the fairs are low royalty to other fairs in the country. >> whether or not to include fairs we're looking at that number we can't continue to i mean, i mean we can't a charge the true costs but not too far away it is problematic so i think we've done a lot of things for the population if we can increase the fairs it make sense people are willing to do ridership and taxis shows that
2:18 pm
people are willing to spend more money to get to places more quickly so i think that is important we - in order to increase our services to have the fees. >> director ramos. >> thank you, ma'am vice chair you. >> i have a couple of comments i think that starting with the premium service i want to echo what peter said earlier i also have concerns with how that plays out in the long run you know the brt lines could be considered an premium survivors some people make at cases the rails are premium services and i in seeing the way the premium services played out with ac transit and their transbay service that divides the
2:19 pm
ridership the way the political decisions with made how their spent and the riders get their seats it gets analyst i didn't to see that i know they did that a la it is an awkward place to go if we can we would like to avoid that accept well, two reasons one i'm under the impression the premium service is for quotes and less to operate it is lens less wear and tear and the refinery for xhourments it is cheaper to run that i'd like to do more of that and you know not get the impression that the office maybe i'm wrong but where to go if in direction learn will o more about that and also want to echo what
2:20 pm
peter's building department the whole you know - what you said director borden's about covering the true costs cars are i'll be the one to say this i'm the bad guy they really do create a town hall on the system and streets and everything else and our transit i don't believe that their making their fair share speaks for itself around parking and not just sunday metering or should say only sunday metering but the evening and in the morning hours i know i've heard from merchants and other folks that they did like the sunday meters they didn't like it at first but their opinion changed after the benefits a terrific
2:21 pm
opportunity for revenue generation if we do it in a way that is in conjunction with the support of low and behold community we do it in sections and zones the way we the accident it or doing it and what have you i say this because i'm not convinced at all that cars do pay their fair share for the using our streets and effectively costing the city by way of parking and transit people that are taking triumphing trirlt transit are doing the right thing and not reside to speaks for itself punish them by raising the fairs we're not raising fairs on people that are driving cars we should be trying to cover the cost of fairs of providing services first of all, it is not impossible but i know that keeping transit affordable is
2:22 pm
for people to be able to live the city the cost of live living in the city is up-and-up and up the way we save people in terms of transportation to live here we wanted to see on inclusive city if we have the good conversation we can raise the fairs for everyone or most of us at least or we can make cars pay their fair share of the impacts on the city and transit and that might not come from parking it might come from i mean meters but residential parks permits we're supposed to say we're covering the costs of operations and what have you but look at the real impacts of having cars on the streets unregulated and what are the impacts of that so - i think to
2:23 pm
believe that if we reality truly understood the true costs that cars have on our system we would be more inclined to raise the fees for parking and operating a car in the city as opposed to raising the fairs of people 0 who are just trying to do the right thing by taking transit to the environment and the management of congestion and using the limited that is a there is no so much transit riders are doing and that might actually include garbage charging higher rates at garages as well as on something i will if we can justify the costs of the impacts that that cars are having on the streets i think that people are more inclined to acknowledge that and pay our fees so we don't have to pass the fees onto the people
2:24 pm
that can at least forward to pay the higher costs director nolan i want to go next it is nice going after any fellow direction you raised the questions and helped me think about that a little bit more i want to run through some of the specific things first i think that the change in the youth definition i do support i think setting the discount fair at 50 percent i support as well, having the cash fair go up looking at higher than the fair media fair i don't know i'm still worried about that with only abused of our breakdown of income of the riders and the number we heard either at our full day workshop thirty percent of our residents live in poverty
2:25 pm
but 51 percent of riders live in poverty it feels that one feels scary to me i don't want to penalize the lower income riders the vendor commission i will support, the raising the prices on the express or premium service i'm with director ramos i feel that that feels difficult because of what premium you know when we get our bus rider at the time of trial in yeah, that one i don't like it the a pass yes raising bart and the token i'll support as well one clarifying question director reiskin when we had the slide of the things not in base i assume we're not assigning them a base because we're not sure page 13 we're not
2:26 pm
sure of what we're going to do with those yet and that's why we don't see a dollar amount i'm worried about that this is somewhat fighting and modest gap will get much bigger. >> it varies in some cases the dollar amount we know and some we do and again, we didn't have a dollar amount established ensue point next time we come back not in the base needs to be for considerations we'll make sure to bring the dollar values and in terms of the revenue side more of a policy we used if any and how much potential revenue and on the expenditure side we can bring our best guess of dollars amounts. >> when we talk about the fund balance slides 24 i support
2:27 pm
dipping both that modestyly in coping the guidelines and to get to the pot point that director borden's and director ramos made and one of the public commenters i think what i'm starting to feel and your alluding to it is a feeling we're down the road of a double standard in fairs for our rider passengers but not appropriately politically parking management policy for the car driefdz we've talked about the driver deficiency we bring down the costs in operating that transit i'm sure you've all been an streetcar that is parked behind a car in the evening or sunday morning i sat on this someone ran into to get money and we sat
2:28 pm
there and doushth is rampant we can percentage manage that i'd like to see us take into account to look at the parking management policy we have i could fairs for the riders but i think our cap per hour for sf park and the meters has been flat for 5 years didn't seem right if we are capped out for 5 years on what went up charge and yet demand has imploded and double parking we need to look at that as good parking policy that helps us meet the other goals not only revenue as well we still have is from the last time to the board of supervisors to get approval on new parking
2:29 pm
meter i believe we kicked that cap we have no more new parking meters to add in the city yet the city continues to change areas that probably divert to the meters. >> like my apartment i live along the n judah line that whole n judah street a parking lot and people drive in and jump in and are gone all day it is not right. >> yeah. >> so it is if i look at this we have great ideas and a great start i'll starting to wore we have a double standard verse what we expect from the paying riders verse what we are doing the parking management policy to not to our point bring up combats impacts those people are
2:30 pm
having when we park and double park and when we find a meter and not find a meter i'm hoping we can take into account as we moved on this and let me just run through here make sure i didn't miss anything. >> monopoly i think outside the box is all the feedback. >> one more little point you know the conversation will clipper versus cash and providing a clipper discount what it it makes you feel better i'm happy to talk about that but i do feel to that encouraging people to again do the right thing by getting a clipper card your benefiting everyone for me as sort of like it is a handicapping to get a clipper card but load it up in the
2:31 pm
walgreens or machines it is a benefit to everyone so including yourself your get to where you're trying to get to faster so i awhile i also appreciate the analysis and think this is important we do the weather title 6 obligations feel that if we were all an clrpdz we would all benefit from it and i think that that will be despite it having some you know being a little bit more challenging for some of us to have a clipper card folks should make an effort the returns where tremendous they benefit everyone including cash paying consumers. >> i will like we'll have to really push to get those kind of late adopters of clipper card and make that does mean raising
2:32 pm
the cash fair and clearing the clrpdz fair by 6 months or something so one of the indexes and i agree we need to do it but really hard for me when i look at the cash payers the idea of putting that extra burden i was that person out of college feeding dimes and nickels into the slots so. >> i wanted to add i wanted to say i remember my previous comments be miss instructed the - and i'm absolutely in favor of the increasing the parking fees and the garages have no issue think; right what we've seen as we increase the parking ticket we get to the place where everyone is taking the transit we still have the same problem there is ultimately it is look
2:33 pm
an affordability issue can we afford to maintain the system the way we need it to run and, you know, we can't rely on - we have to be able to have it good enough that everyone wanted to get rid of their car but i don't own a car i've not owned one my adult life it is a delicate balance it make sense to raise fees where there are opportunities to raise fees there is obviously political issues around adding more parking and sticker areas we saw how that went down the hate and in the commercial and increasing more meters there is a balance we have to strike but at the same time, i think a lot of these things make sense in terms of of what we can do and explore other things from partitions is
2:34 pm
make sense and everything should be on this table but an issue the premium service issue does strike me as - i cannot afford to pay more money. >> i think that you know looking at investigating o two tier services are questionable so thank you. >> thank you for your clarification. >> jim the unbalanced issue kcmo i don't know if you discussed it but director reiskin this is a policy matter for the board there are actually things that gives us an treerld opportunity i'm focusing on paratransit their facilities in san francisco in brisbane or some place as the vehicles so some of the vehicles have older and need repair i'll be interested in a
2:35 pm
list be prepared for the board for things we can do and certainly in the get rid of of the entire thing but have an opportunity the more concrete things we can do in my mind people can actually see so i don't know from the staff is thinking about in at all but maybe i'll appreciate that. >> absolutely i agree i think that is a great opportunity i'll not recommend use of it for plugging the gaps as ongoing costs but discussed and workshop i think that is a number of criteria such as those you suggested making great candidates and it would be irresponsible to sits on this cash and not putting some of it so use acknowledging the fact
2:36 pm
the committee is it not going to continue at this rate and we definitely want to have a cushion but not have a million cusp. >> have you thought will a process for a hierarchy or making decisions and so at the workshop we had back in january, i noted down a number of criteria it was recommending we consider for use of funds balance so i've been going through the capital budget and particularly looking at those things that are not fund i've been kind of scoring those in terms of the criteria and incidental i have a pretty good sized list i'll bring it to the next time on the agenda and putting ideas based on what i
2:37 pm
understand the criteria's. >> so caltrain is not in there i guess. >> the increase is not in here. >> not the base because of the baseline we didn't have the question and not confirmed that request and certainly we've entered agreement with the 3 counties of the share of the contribution and ma to i'll recommend it is. >> the article in today's paper the high speed rail comes this way instead of la first so maybe a whole lot maybe to look at that so speed up the electric fiction process
2:38 pm
the plan for the next potential mayors task force recommended revenues we are trying to create space for the reasonable bart and caltrans they have needs beyond mayor current resources need this particular issue is doing that for the support. >> if they are serious about coming this way first, we'll be more abusive aggressive in the assistance not just us the other counties as well. >> right director ramos. >> yes, sir. >> excuse me. director. >> thank you. >> i believe this - yeah. >> sorry. >> so i just wanted to for the next go around the come back on the budget i was wondering i support the proposal to bring to
2:39 pm
market-rate or discount fairs to the disables but i support that because i have great background information from the staff compared to other agencies as far as the downtown rates as the demographic information for the discounts offered through point programs for the fee funning e muni so i guess i think that so you would a controversial item you look at the data behind it is the not controversial it will be great to have the information i think that it is out the public before just so the public has that. >> to clarify on the earlier discussion who is paying and so we are by board policy what is the baseline it is increasing by inflations or cost recovery fees and finances all of the park
2:40 pm
through the marking fines and the transit fairs so it is somewhat across the board approach on the revenue and expenditure parking management and more muni service was one of the ideas we're not trying in this proposal to have those ideas having a double standards or one verse the other i'll remind you it the fair policy you put in place before i got here was one of the things that supported our high credit rating and the good credit ratings the agencies don't have this we've dei cannot and large stuck to it in 2010 it is kind of a financial managed best practices anything we consider will be mindful of that i just want to
2:41 pm
refresh the boards memory for the in relation couple of months but when it comes time to issue the 2017 gap one of the things we've deemed our strength and resources and the policy we can for the cost increase. >> absolutely. >> which is why generally speaking across the board your fines will increase as well as don't policy reasons to change that and muni is one one that deadequacy but be that as it may a good policy we should support. >> just to be clear i don't have a policy are indexing it could be everything that costs more so it is you know gas costs more unusually and probably cost more costs of medical benefits goes
2:42 pm
up and everything goes up i appreciate the index and i take issue with what vice chair brinkman man all things are not i could like the parking meters and opportunity to index other impacts on costs on the system overall so this is what the point i was trying to make. >> thank you director reiskin you remind me that sf park is sort of it's only form of indexing and as we look towards rolling that out that will be you know it is demand based so it's on indexing that brings me back to the fact if we have a cap on the hourly rate some sort of limiting our index for the sf park we have a de facto cap on the number of parking meters regardless how the city changed
2:43 pm
since that again, we're de facto limiting the ability to index to our point to kind of charge a fair share of the impacts of someone having on the streets when they park and double park all right. any more observations commissioners no okay this was not an action item at this point so i building we'll move move on to the last item on the agendas the replacement of wireless facilities on the managed real estate assess this the requirements for the review process for the communication and antenna and productive the form communication size installation of the communication innocent antenna. >> what is the subject we love
2:44 pm
it so m much. >> good afternoon sally cfo so this item before you is a we're asking approval for a template for our wireless equipment on the garages we have been before you on the same thing on the equipment on the poles so we're trying the same thing on the garages we've been working on this project for over two years with various wireless companies that hopefully, will be in agreement with us at this point but essentially we have received combating input over two years and revised the document we revised the rates and lowered our rates since before you to be maufrtd and worked with the - with the other city departments including real estate department or rec and park the port so we
2:45 pm
feel strongly that the document of the item before you has been scrubbed and rescrubbed we have incorporated many of the provisions that the wireless companies have requested to the ability we could and some of the items we couldn't incorporate bus their contemporary to the city's lease or not supportive of the agencies best practices so i'm happy to go through a pipeline if you wish but maybe you'll want to hear the wireless companies up to you. >> maybe i mean, i'll issue one of the - this document that speaks to the rates and how we compare so this table basically summarizes what we believe. >> on page 4. >> sorry page 4 we believe
2:46 pm
where we are compared to the rest of the market to the board of supervisors approved a lease for the last month the last hours we feel comfortable we'll done our due diligence we came back down. >> directors don't police log have any clarifying questions before we go to public comment no can we please have public comment. >> two members of the public that submitted speaker cards. (calling names). >> hello members of the public board members i'm with the law firm representing verizon wireless we appreciate the new things with the staff i've been rep verizon and this is a long journey and my client and staff has spent hundreds of hours and
2:47 pm
tens of thousands of dollars negotiating that i wish i could stabbed before this board and say any client supports the agreement they've spent tons of money and the rates are not comparable if you look at the last chart you'll notice that the comparables are all the government entities we deal with private leasors those rates are astronomical i've recommended this for 25 years and negotiated literally thousands of documents in northern california and obviously including san francisco and never seen rates like this from the board want to achieve the revenue and wants to encourage the carriers i recommend the board continue this matter and let us continue the negotiation
2:48 pm
i do presenter with the staff we met to negotiate we had our xhashts and have a civil discussion, however, no progress i do recognize the staff has reduced the rates but simply not significant enough i ask the board to consider a continuance so we can continue negotiations. >> >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> >> eric. >> hello thank you for having us. i'm eric i'm a real estate manager for verizon wireless i'll start by that's why this was nice on the pricing structure than we started two years ago we ask you to t you continue this one of the rates you're going to propose i can only speak on behalf of the verizon what you'll be paying your structure puts us over the
2:49 pm
thresholds not only that but puts in the position every time i modify a verizon site i come to you it is over the thresholds that allows matt to work so in order for you guys to maximize the revenue i suggestion suggest you come into a market-rate as opposed to this high rate your detour business i have two properties with mta but the rate structures you're looking at which i what i get in the private sector i can get a justification of packing up and rebuilding somewhere else within this 7 or 8 years for a 15 year term didn't make economically sense for verizon to stay not
2:50 pm
only that but the modification terms and agreement to maximize revenue but maximize the efficiency on the team not requiring an amendment every time i understand due diligence necessary and proceed to you structures and studies that shows we're within the lease premises but a simplification of the process and simplification of the terms will be much better. >> thank you. next speaker. >> it's the last person that turned in a speaker card. >> wait one more. >> anything else that wishes to turn in a speaker card. >> thank you. >> teddy. >> thank you good afternoon director nolan and members of the commission i'm teddy the regional vice president for at&t i'm here
2:51 pm
along with our outside council tom newsom to ask you to continue this item and instruct staff to work with the carriers to come up with lease terms that we can all work with it is not unprecedented two years ago we entered into a contract lease with the garage and came to terms on all the items we're asking for mta to consider working with us on and we value our relationship with mta we want to continue to put our facilities on mta properties unfortunately with the lease term that have been presented to us we're not going to be able to do that it maintained only a couple of hundreds thousands of of dollars a year for mta our ability to service our customers without the restrictions that
2:52 pm
are in this lease are paramount to our success so we're asking for a little bit more time and a little bit more diagnose diagonal to create a leases that works for the carriers. >> thank you. >> last speaker that turned in a speaker card john newman. >> honorable chairman chairman and commissioners i'm john newman one of the at&t outside council i've had the privilege of documenting agreements with over 20 years now with various departments of the city and county we've pioneered many of the agreements and found the solutions with the mta you've seen corporations we went through the issues we're concerned about in our record here today with the sfmta staff
2:53 pm
and this board a copy of that lease which i'd like to put in the public record is lombard street garage that agreement provide a a great deal of control for your staff to content to the changes to equipment provided a reasonable pricing model at&t does have discrepancies about the pricing model and it if were adopted our directions from the radio frequency team to immediately consider relocation of our facilities once the existing portfolio expires a direction for the tenure that no new sites will be considered open sfmta property that's a current direction of our client we don't want that we prielgd the recipients with the city and want that to continue but needs
2:54 pm
it have equitable terms we can work with the main concern is the modification provisions and i believe there are lawyers on the commission the use of word sole discretion which means the staff can be arbitrary and capricious in way the changes are allowed to our facilities those changes are invisible and unfortunately, if it we don't have reasonable certain we'd like to not have that. >> thank you. we'll scan the documents and provide them to the board was that our last speaker and protect. >> madam chair. >> ms. booze i have one question i am going to depend on our research about the fair market-rate what was the issue the access. >> certainly so right now the
2:55 pm
way the language is written in the contract if one of the providers wants to make a change to the infrastructure they must ask our staff for approval one of the concerns that the parking team has they going you know the filed we wouldn't know about it so that is one change they go up there and make changes to the lease they'll have to inform us and let us know as to our authority. >> but not your intent to be arbitrary and capricious. >> not you usually. >> not me the parking father and mother that makes that determination. >> okay. thank you. >> yes. director borden and then. >> so there was an issue about the fair market-rate of the private sector did we look at all what people are paid on
2:56 pm
private property. >> we could as much as we could couldn't get the data but talked to the real estate director of the city he feels comfortable the rests are compatible to the private segmented we looked at verizon providers their rates conversationally and say they're close to what we're recommending so mr. graph was not here from the parking department and he's feeling comfortable we're within the market. >> the other question in terms of how you choose to go by antenna one of the things the city works there is a preference one through 7 in terms of what the preference one site and another site and preference one site is a site that has wireless mntsdz that are appreciable to location with the antennas proposing less of that so i was
2:57 pm
wondering why you choose to direction it divulges people. >> our model was complicated in terms of pricing we have a variety of equipment and long table of pricing structure trying to simplify and not the calculations so our team came up with looking at the market 3 leases were the average of the leases in our property that and that's where we established our market we double checked that with the city department i mean, i'm a little bit concerned to make that negotiate expensive to the co-go location it a a detrimental and the issues that happens the neighborhood if they can't find a public place for a mountain. >> you know other right arm so it becomes more problematic the other issue is where he because
2:58 pm
of topography of the city makes it difficult you have to cite the antennas i mean they're much closer and they are different all companies and another issue that is not for us to debate but the pricing structure will decrease the use of multi citing and not pricing ourselves of this review revenue. >> i understand director borden but we feel comfortable that you know we don't believe this is discouraging for example, sprint has not concerns they've been establishing leases so given the other verizon wireless there are other concerns but - >> i don't know with what else to say on that issue. >> director nolan. >> anything to gain by a
2:59 pm
slight delay this this from your prospect. >> we've been working on that for two years and can't go to the city we've run the race and not sure if they'll have a different okay. by delaying it from our side. >> thank you. >> can i ask. >> director rubke. >> so with respect to the companies that are here and the changed language and the discussion of over staff i'm wondering i totally understand what your significantly not planning on withholding capricious arbitraryly so with that in mind why not will tougher language in the clause i hear you've been working o on to but wondering is there a reason it - specific proposals they've brought forward that are
3:00 pm
problematic in terms of the prargz. >> i'll defer to tom if you want to speak to the parking garage we're following the template in the port language our city attorney what. >> good afternoon director nolan and members of the board one distinction. >> state your name for the record. >> deputy city attorney stephanie stewart there is a carve out that allows for challenges of equipment from like to like equipment it is similar not as though a change requires an approval of mta staff the intention was that if there was going to be additions of equipment antennas or different types of equipment that requires input from staff there is a
3:01 pm
concern of whether or not the structural considerations need to be made for the additional equipment but at least that does allow for again like for like challenges a right arm of similar equipment. >> thank you. >> i'd like to say it didn't sound - i'd like to add a look back and see what happens if we are moving forward to look at whether or not those were renewed i don't want us to lose out. >> that's a good idea. >> we'll come back in six months timeframe. >> we'll have to move the item. >> second. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? we've got 4 ids and one in the the i's have it. thank you so the motion is approved

design this as well and will hear from [inaudible] which is a locally owned sbe firmed and peter [inaudible] from [inaudible] which is a long standing bay area firm. we are excited to work with 3 community builders for phases 1 b and 3. parcel a on the north west side thf site we worked with san francisco housing development corporation and [inaudible] for parcel k on the southeast side the site there is a partnership between bayview multipurpose center and [inaudible] block 48 unique and challenging site there is 145 elevation change. that produced challenges but we try to work with the site to ictake advantage of the incredible views and try to make sure no homes had direct visibility to the retaining walls. you can see the whole picture what we tried to do so hopefully you
3:33 pm
enjoy that. the next steps we continue to refine the drawings and with that we will begin the design presentation. one thing we want to do is provide dates and context to what we are looking at. february 9, 2015 we went to the full cac and may approved the basic concept, manch 3 is when the ocii approved the concept that laid the groundwork. december 17, 2015 is when design present today had cac committees and january 11, 2016 approved the phases. within the last 15 months we had 9 community

3:35 pm
and you get a sense the great views to the south and the expanse towards the southern exposure. looking at the parks and open space involved in these 2 phases towards the north you get a sense the nice big open space towards the north the sites over the top and also the south you can see how great the open space is with the southern exposure. looking at phase 1 b, this is two separate lots and two separate buildings of 50 unit overall. looking at diversity of mix between flats and town houses and 1 and 2 bedrooms. some the data speaking to that. we have a mix of private open space and public open space as well and [inaudible] with the two developments. this is a perspective looking at block a,
3:36 pm
building a as part of phase 1 so this is a squaen unit building chblt we have parking on the ground floor and flats and town houses above. mix of unit with open space activating a street frontage. we concealed the parking along the ground floor i j have rez dent stoops. i also have a lot of planting throughout with native planting. looking at the typical plans, parking on the ground floor and up above mixture of flat and town houses with centralized circulation. building a is most-ly private open space with 7 exposed decks off the bottom the page there. looking at building g which is a slightly larger buildsings at 34 unit, parking on the ground floor with mixture of units
3:37 pm
above and we-it is a large building we try today break up the massing with articulation and massing, help activate the street experience again while providing entry to the grade over the parking. activate it with street trees and landscaping and try to create a active experience. the plans for building g you can see the parking which is pretty well screened on the ground floon with residential stoops that come down to the street with units to the left of the site. to the west. looking that typical floor plans above, a variety of different layouts and sizes for 1 and 2 bedrooms. the interesting thing about block g st. we have nice open space to the far east on the right side of the plan there so it is a nice community open space that is also in line with
3:38 pm
one of the pocket parks so you get certain exposure and view tooz the south. this is a sample of the landscape looking at native local species and we also have some images of that on the board as well as the sample material boards. looking at a combination of [inaudible] some plank. architectural exposed concrete, stecko and [inaudible] we also looked add varying the colors on the site to provide a little activity and interest and again, trying to create a nice pedestrian experience and residential feel. with that i will turn it over to peter. >> thank you. >> good afternoon madam chair and members the commission
3:39 pm
[inaudible] glad to be here as well working with lunar and this community along side [inaudible] phase 3 is the buildings along the lower portion the site. oakdale lower scale buildings. pocket parks come through central park so continue theopeb space pattern along and the across the street. so, in termss of number of units , this is 91, mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom unit so there is a diversity of unit types. as mentioned we include
3:40 pm
bmr units, i think 13 total. in terms of the design, building [inaudible] on the middle of the site gives a sense of the scale. 2 and 3 story buildings units corner windows that provide eyes ochb the street, landscaping that connects the sidewalk and build squgz then a broader view, building h gets a sense how the buildings step up the hill side. the [inaudible] so the cars are concealed limited curb cuts and the way [inaudible] roof terraces ovlooking the street. and then building k which is at the top the site and here you get a sense the buildings step down but also curve where the street curves. the motion the walk up style buildings they live and feel like san francisco style buildings. they have open
3:41 pm
circulation and informal relaxed character and they have this appropriate variety in form and materials. in plan, ground floor or the nob nub each unit has a private garage, some are connected internally can w with stairs. above on the second floor these are 1, 2 bedroom units and have a [inaudible] so they get windows in two directions so get cross ventilation. really nice units. and then the last building on the site, the lowest portion is building q which is 4 stories, has a nice generous central lobby. the beys and scale of the building relate to the walk up buildings adjacent. on the far end you can see the hoa building which the community room for the site. and the plan of that,
3:42 pm
you can see at the ground floor on the top that you have couple ground floor unit, a central lobby and a second on the right hand side forier lobby entry for the hoa building all screens the park{the upper floor you have the elevator arrives and have a south facing sheltered court yard and 1 and 2 bedroom units all served by that elevator. the second court yard curves between the hoa build squgz units. landscape materials, drought tolerant and native. also sturdy material frz the planters, sidewalks [inaudible] to tie the buildings into the lan scape. and then lastly in terms of materials a variety not just of form but also color
3:43 pm
and detail and actual materials so there is a variety of the neighborhood. i think that is the conclusion of the design presentation. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> that also concludes our presentation but we are available for your questions should you have any. >> thank you. we first need to take public comment. i believe we have speaker cards >> i do have one speaker card, mr. angela onstrom. >> hello. my name is angela on strom and i have been a community activist and a founder the first non profit art group in bayview hunters point art gallery and cultural

3:45 pm

3:50 pm
blocks of unified roof lines just don't do it. i really would like to see a variation in heights. just 2 or 3 or 4 you can work with that. the next tidbit, all of the surfaces on the buildings need to kind of have a anti-noise effect. i'm at the 9th floor of the building and we are noisier at the 9th floor than when you walk on the ground floor. we have to do-[inaudible] yp don't know how much time i have left, it is stuck on 3 minutes. the city needs to go in a new direction and the new direction needs to be we have to include the people in the city. a new residential formula. everybody is asking to be part the neighborhood and continue to be part the neighborhood, so i'm
3:51 pm
making a change. 30 percent open market, open to everybody in the world of whatever number you have, whether it is a giant or lunar here. 30 percent open to market but they are rent controlled unit. the next 10 percent are 30 year residents with local zip codes. 65 years or older. these are bid whether it is a condo or a rental or apartment, these are for these people. they are weighted for the oldest so peemm thip neighborhood stay in the neighborhood. the next 15 percent if you look in the area the local zip codes for 20 years these units are for you. the next 5 percent if you are a 30 year san franciscan resident you have a chance to move into

3:53 pm
president rozaul rosales and commissioners, i want to-i'm doctor veronica honey cut, chair oaf the cac for the ship yard and before i say anything about the cac and support of the project, i would like to thank executive director tiffany bohee for your presentation at the last meeting, we know you are busy but it is good to see you and gave a substantial and excellent update. thank you for that, we appreciated that. i want to congratulate president rosales and commissioner mondejar because it is clear that ocii leadership at least it is clear to me that ocii leadership will continue to be in good hands which is critical. angela who
3:54 pm
was a former student of mine at city college of san francisco and the gentlemen that made the presentation, we love to see you at the cac frathe ship yard meeting. if you are unable to attend we'll come to you because we want to represent the community well and certainly the issues you discussed it would have been helpful to have that information prior to our look at the project. however, we did have substantial community support at the project and for the matter at hand. we at the cac support the schematic design approval for block 48 phases 1 a and 3. we reviewed asspects of the project since 2015. lunar urban representatives and the team have been very responsive to
3:55 pm
our suggestions and made changes to their design and we are very pleased about that. and so i hope you also have a copy of the letter which our organization sent to you that details everything i'm saying now. we urge you to move this matter forward without delay. thank you very much. >> thank you. do we have another speakers? any other speaker cards? >> no, i do not. >> okay. any questions? commissioner singh. >> i just want to know what the [inaudible] is anybody is getting any housing who is [inaudible]
3:56 pm
>> to date i believe there is only been a lottery on block 50 and 51 which were a limited number, i believe 12 or 9 below market rate housing. we are collecting application frz block 49 which is 100 percent stand alone project on the hill top which is 59 units of housing and there is a a invitation for the commissioners attend the lottery held march 3 so we don't have a lot of information or data collected to the outcome of lotteries and how they relate to below market rate housing units available on the huntersion point ship yard and candle stick >> how do you get to the lottery sym >> applicants interested obtaining below market rate units need to fill out a application. when they submit the application they have given a ticket to the lottery and the
3:57 pm
lottery is held and folks who qualify so certificate of preference holdsers are siphoned off and those folks literally the bucket of tickets is slethed from first and if there are 59 folks they are pulled from the first pot before you move down the water fall in order of preference. >> how many units are lottery system in this project? >> for the entirety of phase 1, there is 10 and a half percent of units available for the developer and have forgotten my bmr table. there will be 218 ocii 100 percent affordable housing unit that will be
3:58 pm
available. i can get you the total number, just give me a minute. >> so, we asked before and i'm really going ask the chair to make sure we redo this. this is huge in terms of the numbers and how it is effecting the knhunty there community there and we need to do something, host a workshop, i sound like a broken record but i believe we need to do something in the community so we can get people to fill out the applications. people need to know especially certificate of preference holders need to know they have a opportunity to get one of these units. i would like us and maybe i'm being too crazy
3:59 pm
about this, but in the next 2 months have it done because we have been asking for this for a long time and we need to get people in the pipeline to be able to fill out the application squz get the names in. it is only right we do that. it was brought up earlier about the population in bayview hunters point. we did a horrible disservice in the 50 and 60s in the western addition and we need to make the wrong right again and so today is what? february 16, tiffany if there is something we can do, let's do it. madam chair i urge the commission and staff to do it so let's get it down. people will see this bit and community members will get mad. we see it in the mission all the time. developers are
4:00 pm
getting pushed, stopped and people are getting upset, so i think we could help some of this by work wg some of the non profits we engaged in in helping reach out to people to do something and if we do it on a std where we give everyone a opportunity where there are weeks in advance to tell the local churches we are doing this and get people excited about it and giving people a opportunity to stay. that is that. >> thank you. >> when we look that lottery system, we have hunters point certificate of preference holtders western addition, [inaudible] and ellis act and san francisco residents after that, why are ellis acts going before residents san franciscans, do you know?
4:01 pm
>> i believe it to be a cross [inaudible] i believe to be a qualified ellis act preference certificateleders you are ellis acted in san francisco. >> i know people that are ellis acted that just moved into town >> when they were ellis acted they were san francisco residents. >> nob nub you had a long term san francisco residents who haven't gotten so that is a issue maybe you can educate us on that because there is a loop hole somewhere i folks i know that by the luck the draw they were ellis acted and have people who have been here forever not having a opportunity and pushed down so maybe that is something we need to look at and more than happy to talk to president breed on that because i know she is nert ested in that >> my understanding of the
4:02 pm
ellis act preference is in order to qualify you need to be a tenet for the last 10 year in u unless you are disaudible td is 5 years. it isn't everyone ellis acted or evected through the ellis act. >> okay great. thank you. thank you for the clarification. so, when we talked about and know we brought this up before, the materials inside the units and the sizes, i know we wanted to make sure that if just because you are in a affordable unit doesn't mean your unit neesds to be smaller or have less quality fixtures so i want to make that point that is something we'll look at so want to make sure it is the same for everybody and the distribution of units with the views i know we talked about this before, we have to be fair about this. >> on that note, that is the
4:03 pm
analysis that we do in advance of the schematic design in turchls of size and location in the unit or in the buildings and our analysis shows we get a equal distribution in terms of views and aminities lunar provided the same finishes to below market rate units as the market rate units so you littery cannot tell the difference between when you walk inside. >> we love that. with regards to the sb's i will start asking for [inaudible] of the firms that are being selected because again, we want-there are firms that have been here a long time that stuck it out and avoided the torm and you have brand new
4:04 pm
firms that come in because it is like gold rush all over again and they are getting the business and long term businesses are not. i like the numbers that i see, i think you are make ing a good effort to do that >> you made mat request before and we did include the bio's for folks. >> thank you. i think you are doing a good job on workforce. the other thing i want to say, i remember when we looked at the layout with those parks and we just lost an incredible leader in doctor [inaudible] jackson and as time goes on there will be other leaders we probably will lose because that is how life happens, but i
4:05 pm
would love to see the parks and trees named after some of the leaders. i know [inaudible] had her view on this project, but at the end of the day she kept us honest and at the end the day she gave 80 years of her life to this community and think we need to do start doing stuff and maybe as a commission we talk about it as the design phase continues we look at that. my last thing, because there is such a huge project for the city as a whole, i think there is a lot of discussion about the shipyard and bayview and what we were doing out there and i kind of was expecting a wow factor
4:06 pm
about the design. they seem very similar to each and i don't know, it doesn't wow me. i know you have gone through the cac, but i would have loved to have seen more like something that there is more tex chrture and more reminiscent of the history of that place. i see a lot of boxes. some on top of each other and we worked so hard for this that i think that area deserved a wow factor. we are getting some the wow downtowns in the buildings we approved that are providing more texture because we don't want it to all look the same. i would ask the design team take a look at that because i know that you want to
4:07 pm
bring your best foot forward to this project, but it just seems like a bunch of boxes with the trees in front and stucco. we have seen some buildings that only a few years old and see what happens with the stucco, it starts cracky and see the water drip lines. at the end we want to really say this was a incredible project that really wows and the community deserves that wow factor. they just look like a bunch of boxes and i'm being terrible honest so maybe there is something that can be done to give it that wow. especially since it is by the water. it will be phenomenal to look at the shore. those are my comments.
4:08 pm
>> commissioner mondejar. >> thank you. just a couple items and i want to build on what commissioner bustos just indicated and the number one is the certificate of preference. i do relate to the individual who shared that african american communities isn't as represented as we would like. commissioner bustos has been talk about this since i have been on the commission and i'm on my second and agree it is time to do something about it. what can we do with the lottery and what can we do with the
4:09 pm
qualification? i look at it as communication and letting the residents know especially affrck african american community know here is the application and if you don't qualify what can we do to help them qualify. i know in chinatown they do that. i'm on the board of a organization and they do sit down with the applicants and help them go through the process and say to them why they don't qualify and how they can qualify maybe for the next round and think as a commission especially with the housing crisis that communicating all these processes is very important and i know i haven't seen the application and talked to people that they don't know how taaccess it or qualify or
4:10 pm
get hold of it. not everybody has a computer they are download the application or able to come to the meetings so i do support getting workshop, a seminar and letting individuals know low to qualify. i want to address the gentlemen with suggestions rks i think they are wonderful suggestions and don't know if this commission can implement those because there are other segments of the population that are not-may not qualify or do not qualify. the 65 years old and older and i like the fact he said if you have lived in a particular zip code for 30 years maybe there is something to it. i agree because this are citizens from the community and the voter squz our constitch uents and how do we incorporate them through the current process? we have a great staff, innovative,
4:11 pm
brilliant, smart, that i think we put our heads together and can do something and come up with innovative solutions. i dorent know what that will be but brain storming and getting together and having meetings will help with that. i will volunteer to be part of this getting this workshop session to happen because i think it is time as commissioner bustos said we act on it. i know [inaudible] volunteer commission, but i think if one of us would kind of lead the initiative at least would let our community know we are doing something about it, that this commission is actually addressing some of the issues and i look at as communication. with the internet and phone calling and e-mails, and mailing, the smail mail which many don't use anymore, i think
4:12 pm
is great to make sure they understand the process and that we are there to help them. that is really the one thing that i wanted to highlight and is there a better process than the lottery. what have other communities done aside from the lottery? i never win anything so it just seems like if i do apply i won't probably qualify or win because it is just my luck, i guess, right? i'm sure a lot of people feel that way, so maybe something other than chance that would make you qualified for one of the units. the other piece i want to also build on, i agree with the unit, no [inaudible] the wow factor, it is all most like you go to old parts of san francisco and see the victorian homes and you just, wow. it is
4:13 pm
something that makes you really appreciate the builders architecture and design the vision that they had and i'm sure with our architects and designers maybe there is something that represents the shipyard. i don't know what that means. maybe you don't want unit that look like boats but something around really san francisco that if you are a owner or renter of a first phase or second phase you actually feel like you are in a fabulously architectural designed area. i know there is also the idea of we need to get this done and get this finished and i realize that, but you know, i just wanted to also say. those are the two things i wanted to share and you know,
4:14 pm
i vote for getting this to move forward with in mind we need to take care of our constituents. >> i have a few questions also, but can someone tell where [inaudible] is? my understanding--[inaudible] we have been anxiously awaiting for [inaudible] which is hopefully-she isn't here. >> jeff white. [inaudible] coulden be here today, so i don't have a super specific timeline and date of the roll out of dahlia. i think it in the first quarter it will be rolled out. maria should be
4:15 pm
here at the next meeting. [inaudible] she will be here to take any questions if you have any and we can give you a more specific timeline. >> okay, and then the certificate of preference program all of the comments we have gone through them many times, my last comment as we know and i'll keep saying it until i receive the answer that i like, is the certificate of preference holder category is relatively small, less than 600 and my recollection- i don't know how many are home owners, how many specially qualify home owners versus renters, but it would seem to me that the portion that is eligible for this housing there should be a
4:16 pm
extra effort to match them up because this is a amazing opportunity. i mentioned before and sure you remember, is there a way to survey folks in the p segment? we need to understand peoples preferences because in that cop universe we could have a lot of takers for this area and i assume and if there isn't that many then folks move into second preference western addition-i have to believe there are takers there to be, so it was commissioner bustos that said when he came on to the commission we want to be known is we want you to come back home commission and i like that and i want folks to know the african american community in particular we want you to come back home and will do whatever it is necessary to help you come back home so we need to align opportunities with qualification squz know this is
4:17 pm
more than a statement than a question but if you have comments. >> on the idea the survey, we heard you loud and clear and are working with ocd determining what type of questions will be most appropriate and what type of information is most helpful for the 6 or 700 folks we have remaining on the list. i did want to remind the commission, the outreach-we have strong outreach now where for certificate of preference holder squz that is in large part because the input we got from the commission over the past year and a half and as you know , we provided the marketing procall and early outreach protocol we implement now and that includes when something starts construction, the cop are affirmatively marketed to and there are information workshops already
4:18 pm
happening that are targeted to the cop holders and the potential residents for that project. i just want-i know that you know all of that, i justment it remind you there is a significant and feel good about the erft and maria reported on the results of that and see increased participation of the cop holders. >> can we be invited to these information workshop snz s? >> sure you have been in the past and we'll continue to invite you. there is the lottery coming up as you know on march 3. we'll get another round of dates of the workshops coming up. >> thank you. >> i had no other questions. >> any other questions? would
4:19 pm
you like to make a comment? >> [inaudible] i want to add a couple pieces of information to what you already heard. one, just to add a piece of information about the lottery to date, as mrs. drew indicated for block 50 and 51 there was a total of 9 units. we are in the process of 53 and 54 and there are 16 units and heard there is a lottery process for block 49 upcoming so wanted to add that. in terms of the first time home buyer workshops i don't need to speak for [inaudible] they are here specifically because they are community builders on block 48 but they also can speak to this question if necessary. i will say this, since 2005 and 2015
4:20 pm
lunar sponsored first time wuck spp shops there are 61 workshops to date and 31 participants. we asked for a report for 2015 of all attendee tooz the first time home owners workshops and they were from the [inaudible] people are coming to the workshops butd your point is well taken, getting the information and moving to completing a application is a particular process. we are doing extensive outreach and it isn't just electronic but also pairch so the non profits don't have the burden of photo copying all the information. we are in addition to our mohcd partners we are taking responsibility to
4:21 pm
go beyond what is required of us and do outreach to other 40 organizations throughout district 10. in a number of forms as i indicated. now, we have not said to the non profits you have to do workshops but we are encouraging them. we do workshops through fshdc and ourselves with our associates. again, point well taken that there could be more done to move people from receiving information to completing the applications and feeling like they have a shot. but i didn't to add that information to the converitation because there is significant work going on to get information to people and they are coming to workshops in ovwellm numbers from the district. >> no other questions by
4:22 pm
commissioners do i have a motion? >> i move. >> commissioner singh moved the item. is there is a second? commissioner mondejar. there is a motion and second. please call the roll. >> commissioner members please announce your vote when i call your name, commissioner pimentel is abstchblt commissioner mondejar, yes. commissioner singh, yes. commissioner bustos, yes. madam chair rosales, yes. madam chair, i have 4 ayes and one [inaudible] >> okay, the item is adopted. thank you everyone for your comments. please call the next item. >> 5 f and 5 g related to mission bay south block 3 east 1150 third street will be heard

standing on lot a facing south the left side of the screen would be block 3 east development and the right half is the existing development on block 3 west. here we have the south elevation, so if you stand on mission street looking north the right side of the screen is the 3 east development and left side is the existing 3 west development. parking block 3 east will include a scrur parking lot with space for 19 vehicles including 2 car share spaces kw 2 ada spaces. based on other affordable housing units parking is spected to be minimal. the parking is in line with the cities policy and the trade off for more parking
4:40 pm
is less affordable units. [inaudible] the building will include storage for at least one bike per unit. now on to why we are here today. so, first we are requesting authorization to enter into a exclusive negotiation agreement with the development team. the ena requirements a 10 thousand dollar performance deposit and has a initial term of 17 months which takes through to the anticipated construction start. that term does allow for a extension for up to a maximum of 12 months that may be approved by the executive director and the milestones include submission affa reliminary sfinancing plan, design concept and development of schematic design drawings, identification of contractor to generate a cost estimate,
4:41 pm
design development plans and cost estimated associate would the milestone and execution of a long term families. we are also requesting authorization to enter into 2.5 million dollar loan agreement that pays for architectural design through construction drawings, survey and engineering work, legal cost, due diligence studies and developer peep. the interest rate on the loan is 3 percent and loan will convert to a permanent loan at construction lands closing. the developer is required to apply for alterinate funding sources and also required to work with staff to establish a first year operating budget and meet with staff during the development of construction to consider cost containment strategies. as we previously
4:42 pm
stated, the mission bay cac was represented on the selection panel. the cddc presented the project to the cac last year in september and the cac supported the project and the development team proposed. i believe before we kicked off we were provided with a letter from the [inaudible] she was sorry she couldn't be here today so want today make sure we got that letter to you all. now the schedule going forward, in june of this year so just a few month ahead we have shooting to come back with the schematic design and seek approval on that. at the end the year december, we return to commission for the gap financing. early next year the developer is applying for tax
4:43 pm
credit and bond allocation as part the financing. may of next year we come back to commission to request authorization to enter into long term ground lease and with that, if approved we will be able to move forward with construction targeted for june 2017 and if we started at that time we complete construction in may of 2019. this concludes my presentation. we do have development team members that i would like to introduce. cddc we have [inaudible] executive director. [inaudible] director of housing development. ken [inaudible] project manager overseeing the development. source to plow shares we have leonwinston chief operating officer and today representing [inaudible] greg [inaudible] senior associate and believe greg has other team members if
4:44 pm
you would like to introduce them at this point. >> thank you. >> with that happy to take- >> stand up everybody. >> thank you. okay. we will take public comment first and then we'll open to commission questions. we have any speaker cards madam secretary? >> anybody else that would like to make a comment on this item? i don't have any speaker cards. >> okay, these are items 5 f and g, any member the commission have questions, comment? >> i have 3 questions. so, is the interior podium level open space for children, for families that are in the development is that what it
4:45 pm
will be used for? >> the design team put together a interesting design, it is 2 story design so you is a level above the parking podium and one level at grade and at this point remember we are still in concept design but they have program space specifically for families and children play area and offered a secluded space above for privacy for the veterans if they choose to use that. they have been thinking about this. >> my second question is about the design, it is it feasible for seniors to enter and exist the building conveniently? >> the building will [inaudible] they have so far as to in addition to having a main entrance at third and mission street, they are exploring a separate intrnchs to the north side of the builds wg multiple
4:46 pm
access point. >> my last question is green and sustainable, can you tell me how that is incorporated into the project? >> sure i guess the best answer to this question is call up [inaudible] the architect and i'll let him answer it for you. >> hi. thank you. the green strategies will be focus on the exterior as well as interior. primarily we look at durable materials and in door air quality as fundamental for affordable housing and want to make sure we are doing the right thing so the buildic will last over a long period of time and think about the resident and air quality is critical for the families and residents living there. flooring materials, glues and paints
4:47 pm
[inaudible] we tagt green point level gold. >> commissioner bustos >> just want to reemphasize what we said during the last item about just because it is homeless doesn't mean it shouldn't be wow and that would be great if a lot of the buildings are starting to look the same and the wow factor can be done in ways it probably won't cost a lot. murals or something else, something that gives it life and gives pride to people who will be living in these units, especially our veterans who have done so much and that we have done so little to help them out so if we can provide a space that gives a sense of pride and wow that would be awesome. that would be great. >> commissioner singh.
4:48 pm
>> just asking about the parking. who gets the parking? how many units and one parking for each yurnt or not? >> i think it is best to have-i can speak to the parking program as far as who gets the parking, it may be best to bring thup developer. as far as the parking program, a lot of thought did go into how much parking should be provided. the restriction was set no greater than 1 to 1 parking, however we received information from human service agencies we had one member on the selection committee and in their experience they did say that the homeless units they typically place in different buildings around town have very very little parking demand, so really parking should be provided predominantly for the families. if you take the parking ratio of the 19 parking
4:49 pm
spaces versus the 50 family units you end up with.38 to 1 which is better than some of our other more recent developments we have done. as far as who gets the parking i can bring up [inaudible] who is projetmanager for cddc >> as ben said, we have done another project with [inaudible] 150 oats which is 100 percent formally homeless veteran jz we found most people have-now one there has a car, there is no parking at the building and source of plow shares doesn't think many veterans will be in need of parking, but we do at the begin thofg project we'll survey all the residents to determine who needs a car and assign spaces through a lottery process
4:50 pm
>> i have a question regarding the answer to that. regarding the lottery h you have some family units and i would think they would need it more than someone who didn't have a family because in some cases you have multigenerational folks and you have parents and the kids so i know we have to be fair about this, but maybe there is a way as you do the survey to look where families because it you have kids and you have grand parents it is hoard to move around in the city when you have different ages living in a unit, so if there is something we can do that would give those folks a good chance to get it because
4:51 pm
they are most likely needing it more than anyone. >> we'll look at ways to do that. i don't done knoe know in the past if we gave preference to folks with bigger families but we are open [inaudible] >> you have kids or grand parents and it is hard to maneuver that on a bus or bike if that is even possible. if you can consider that that would be great. >> thank you. >> commissioner mondejar. >> just a couple questions. the senior-first of all before i go into that, the selection process, is it the same? do we follow the same selection process? i know you said this is for veterans or formally homeless veterans, do you have
4:52 pm
a list? how do you select those who will qualify? can you just address the process? thank you >> [inaudible] the homeless veteran population is the pilot population for san francisco human service agencies coordinateed access to housing, so the homeless dahlia, if you will. through triage and utilizing assessment form in the length of time homeless a priority list within that registry is created. veterans at the top will be offered this first and that is based on the likelihood of dying on the street and length of time homeless. >> and the families because you have 50 unit for families, what is the selection process? >> the families are selected through a lottery process as you heard described earlier with the previous project.
4:53 pm
>> so lottery again >> we will do outreach well before that lottery aprocess occurs >> the certificate of preference applies so the process will be the process that will be on this? >> yes. priority for certificate of preference holdersfelt . [inaudible] they come straight off the top and who ever qualifys so if 50 cop families qualify they come first and then we go to cop holders >> it seems to me-600 could qualify for this low income program for fmlies. it seems like a natural. i would be surprised [inaudible] they should be already qualified >> and then for the units that are assigned to seniors, this
4:54 pm
may be for the designers or architects are they designed to be frndly to senior citizens? i was shown a unit of what senior friendly unit are about, is that applied i hope? >> [inaudible] all the housing we build we build within mine seniors can age in place, the homeless veteran population is oldser and more disabled an the non veteran population so we want to make shaur they age in place. for example thrks last building we did at 1 50 oat isstreet, 150 percent rudapted and and have roll in showers so they can age in place >> i just want to make sure those features applied to the units. this is just a suggestion and i'm sure the
4:55 pm
architect and designericizea weir of that but in a previous career the use of color schemes and psychology are the [inaudible] of the target population we have. i suggest i hope you use those types. i know they are used in prisons and hotels for seminars and meetings and events that these are also applied to our units, which i'm sure you are aware of but thought i would bring it up there is such color schemes that are more uplifting especially to address the emotional situations. so, thank you. >> all the questions i have have been asked but one for curiosity, besides the lease, what other neighbors might the tenets or the residents of this
4:56 pm
housing development have? who is nearby? >> on the west side there is a housing development completed a few years agogo [inaudible] to the north east is where the giants development will be happening going forward so we are talking about a long term master plan. [inaudible] and then we have 1400 [inaudible] which is another affordable development we did and just two blocks away i believe we have block 6 east which [inaudible] overseeing that development. >> great. >> we do have some affordable unit sprinkled in the mix of market rate development happening around this. >> this is also a hotel group two blocks to the north and a
4:57 pm
residential project that is condo minium market rate and rental as well. the cim group, family house and related-family house on one portion of the block and a cdc on the other side of the block. [inaudible] this spring, any day now. in addition to other parks mariposa park and [inaudible] across the way from the golden state warriors event center so it is [inaudible] >> that is what i wanted to hear. >> may i interject? i think a great suggestion to your question, would it be okay for the next presentation to sort of in your overall map indicate where the pharmacy is or the
4:58 pm
super market? doctor bohee indicated because i know we talk about block this and block that and it is confusing sometimes i know we talk about super markets childcare, if that would be added into your presentation it will give us a sense of community and the services the community would need even if they are just perspective tenets that would be great but the basic support services would be great like car share available and stir. stuff. >> point well taken. >> [inaudible] i don't have any other questions? any other questions? no other questions, commissioner bustos made a motion. seconded by
4:59 pm
commissioner mondejar. we will take this separately so this 5 f accepting the gift of 4.5 million and have to send a thank you note hart felt >> this is for 5 f, commission members nounce your vote when i call your name. commissioner pimentel, yes. commissioner mondejar, yes. commissioner singh, yes. commissioner bustos, yes. madam chair rosales, yes. madam chair, i have 5 ayes mpt . >> 5 f passes. 5 g we have the same motion and second. there is no objection. can you call the roll? >> please announce your vote quh i call your name. commissioner pimentel, yes. commissioner mondejar, yes. commissioner singh, yes. commissioner bustos, yes.
5:00 pm
madam chair rosales, yes. i have 5 ayes >> thank you. please call the next item >> the next order of business is item 6, public comment on non agenda items >> do yee have speaker cards? >> i do not. >> next item please mpt >> item 7, report the chair. madam chair. >> i have no reports. >> next order of business is item h, [inaudible] 8 a request for proposal to develop and operate up to 140 unit on block 10 a and up to 150 unit on block 11 a in candlestick point
5:01 pm
for low income families and formally homeless families with related supportive services, bayview hunters point redevelopment project area. discussion >> it is housing day, we are thrilled to bring before you a rfp for just under 300 units, 290 unit divided on to two blocks. these blocks don't exist yet. the streets don't exist yet. the blocks will be creates once lunar maps and builds the streets, road and public improvements. it is on the site 06 the former candle stick stadium which is demolished. the two blocks, one fronts [inaudible] squai serves at the gateway to the south to the new candlestick portion phase 2 development.
5:02 pm
the other block would be on along a continuation of ingerson and other side streets that are not named. the program for those developments are at a maximum of 60 percent ami. we encourage [inaudible] because we know bayview incomes are typically lower. 20 percent of each of those developments would be set aside for formally homeless included within that 20 percent set aside are 5 twanzitional age unit units, so people who members of the public who have children but in transitional housing and need more stabilized housing. the balance of 80 perlt the unit is available to families and the bedroom topology ghoes up to 5.
5:03 pm
1-5. 5 bedrooms. in part we are-4 and 5, so just 1 and 3, but 4 and 5 targeting families and under the helths and safety code and as part the rebuild code we want to replace the bedrooms. we cant fit all the bedroom counts within the development and there isn't a need for all those 5 bedrooms within the alice griffith rebuild of housing replacement, so we are replacing those bedrooms within the project site. in addition, we would provide for in each of the two development blocks two family chair care units so if you walk through 1184 street there are family childcare units, 3 bedrooms that provide young
5:04 pm
chileds care service with open space and see this as a mar key development. each will have community meeting rooms for example, 1184 street provides a good example of that along with a number of other affordable housing developments. because this is along the primary retail street so acruss the street within a wedge you will see in subsquents meetings, mixed use development urban retail format outlet retail that is residential and moving theater and performing arts and grocery store are in the thick of it. because of signing of sb 107 that allowed us to [inaudible] that allowedtuse
5:05 pm
accelerate these developments. we are getting some contribution from lunar, these are affordable elements. the way we structured the agreement they are capped out in terms sthof contribution after alice so they contribute 519 thousand to the the predevelopment cost and total cost estimate 250 thousand. we welcome to the contribution for the dda but it isn't enough so that is why the sb 107 bond funds as a accelerate. that is what happened in mission bay you see we have so many lots available, the tax base is rising but it isn't rising fast enough to keep on pace with the market rate or mixed income development and this allows to
5:06 pm
advance that. we don't have approved development plans but none the less we are working in parallel so the intention is issue the rfp for these two blocks very shortly subject to commission comments and direction. that concludes my report. available for any questions and to staff is here available for questions. >> before we open up to commission questions do we have speaker cards? >> i do not madam chair. >> ask away commissioners. >> 5 bedrooms. [inaudible] >> i hope there is a corresponding number of bathrooms for families that
5:07 pm
will require 5 bedrooms. that is amazing to me. how many 5 bedrooms will there be? >> i don't know off the top of my head. [inaudible] >> it is a minimal number, i think two ichb each of the blocks. not more than two. >> how many blocks are there? >> 4. >> the 4 bedrooms is the same t is i think 4-maybe 3 in each of the blocks so it is a very small number of units. >> we need to communicate to the public those are large families to apply. >> would the families with the
5:08 pm
larger families blended and multigenerational families will they get priority or is the the standard proswhere someone with 3 or 2 people would get the 5 bedroom >> you have to have a large family. if there are 6 people in the house hold they won't compete with someone who has 3 people. >> it is still the lottery process, right? >> sure. >> will there be a different lottery for the larger unit or in the same lottery process? >> the same lottery process. >> on the occupancy or marketing preference which i think jeff would dive into again, at the very top nof list is certificate holders then individuals paying more than 50 percent of his or her income
5:09 pm
towards housing then people in pub lb housing next to address mrs. arm strongs comment, if you are a existing public housing unit, then it goes to ellis act displaceees as approved fwhie commission for the resolution you approved putting the displaceees above san francisco residents and wurber squz it is resident, worker, general public. the preferences are deep that cop holder jz think should target bayview. western addition cop holders will also qualify. >> so then [inaudible] since we are on the topic, we don't have to answer now buzz because it is down the road but do we need to use the lottery system? it seematize is a certificate of
5:10 pm
preference holders are off the top are a available population, this is seems to me to be another incredible opportunity to bring down the 600 approximate numbers of cop holders by a concerted marketing matching of who is a cop holder that can qualify for these units. it sound like we will have more units-how many units is this? >> 290. two sites. >> one way to look at it is, let's say all 600 if that is the number, cop holders put their hat in the ring for those units, those units would only go to cop holders as long as
5:11 pm
they qualified. the lottery would be mute but what typically happens is you have several thousand folks apply, put the application in and some number is cop holders and those folks rise to the to the top and if there are 10 all 10 get in and the remaining the u.s. of a lottery is to select the remaining units. >> i know that, what i'm suggesting is if we know ahead of time because of the surveys and advance worked, who are the qualified candidate for the units even though they are down the road some, then those are not in competition because they are matched between cop holder and opportunity. they are just perfectly matched so if there is 100 of those then we just
5:12 pm
work down the 600 to 500 even though they may not immediately be moving in tomorrow, they are matched. the same with all the other developments we talked about. if we widdle it down that way the people competing for the balance are cop holders that don't qualify or other folks that are in the water fall of preferences and including general members of the public. at least the cop holders are taken care of is the way i'm seeing it. this is a incredible opportunity but [inaudible] in terms of unit coming on line to do the match making. again, it is dependent on qualification and interest. somebody may not want to move in to the area. >> right. i see what you are saying and i think what i mentioned before, we are doing a lot of really aggressive
5:13 pm
early outreach to cop holders and so we are pulling in as many as we can. it a match. not everybody wants to live in mission bay, they may want to live somewhere else so they won't apply. they pass on interest. >> we know that so we come back and say the 600 we know because we surveyed 250 want to be in mission bay and candlestick so the 600 automatically there is 250 that go off-it is a better report i think otherwise it sounds like the lottery is potentially creating disu appointments in folks. >> [inaudible] i work a lot in the marketing and the whole lottery process and certificate of outreach process and outreaching to people who are still on the list and seniors
5:14 pm
who may need special accommodations. that is is interest ing idea matching the cop holders with the housing coming up. the issues we have that and maybe we can fine tune it is peoples situations change. they may need a larger unit and next year it might be more like a 1 bedroom unit, so because peoples situations change we could qualify and think it may hold only for a certain amount of time and have to go through the process all over again. i think you will be preezed and surprise would the reports you will see coming up this year and the lotteries we are having is we are doing extensive outreach just as director bohee said, the outreaches methods you approved
5:15 pm
are really coming to fruition and just for instance, dr. dave us senior residents currentsly going through the lease process, i would not be surprised if there is over 50 percent seniors who will live in that residents that are cop holders because of the aggressive outreach that is made for that residents. hang tight, we are doing ourb best and think we will have positive reports for you later this year. >> thank you. >> on that note and had a question i would mention at the last item but when the term is formally homeless, it [inaudible] folks are no longer homeless so how do they determine eligibility for formally homeless? >> that is just a phrasing. they will formally homeless-
5:16 pm
>> they are currently homeless and living in sro's or some other place or couch surfing. >> it is a very broad definition >> possibly sleeping in a tent on division. commissioner singh. >> [inaudible] in the lottery system >> no, the homeless householdss are referred by the human serves agency >> how many homeless on the list now? >> i really do not know. >> 6 thousand or so. >> pam sims development special ist. the human services agency they don't have a list. this year they will create a list much like the department of public health has. they will go down and screen for critical
5:17 pm
need and suevere need and serves offered at each site. we will have a better handle on the total number of families and we can report back to you. >> do you have any number of homeless we have in the city? >> i couldn't estimate right now. >> the current numbers are 6,000. and the last counts-- even though a significant number of people are housed, the homeless population continues to increase. >> that is another major topic for another day. okay. any other questions? thank you. we are excited to hear more. please call the next item. >> the next order of business is item 9, commissioners
5:18 pm
questions and matters. >> do any commissioners have a question or matter they would like to raise? i have a question, commissioner bustos mentioned about [inaudible] facilities or streets, do we have a naming policy? >> i don't think there is a naming policy adopted by the commission but in the past for example in mission bay as streets-for example streets are moved through the public improvement process and there is a community process to vet historical figures, places, people of significant and those incorporated into public improvement plan. hunters point ship yard did lead a naming process for the streets
5:19 pm
in alice griffith and see if i can ask [inaudible] drew the ship yard candle stick senior manager to comment on that. that process concluded and we are contacting the members of the family members of the folks selected and will be issuing the results soon. through that process we started collecting names and community members, it was wonderful they came and spoke why they were nominating people and submitted background material explaining why their
5:20 pm
nominee was a appropriate [inaudible] we are looking to utilize that name for the list select frd the 3 streets to put forward for naming parks or additional public aminities in the project area. >> may i ask if dr. [inaudible] 3 names that we are submitted. >> dr. jackson was nominated but not selected. i believe she already has a name, a street named after her in san francisco. one of our crew
5:21 pm
selection criteria we wanted to recognize folks who hadn't otherwise be recognized through naming of public aminities. >> i can forward that information through the commission secretary. >> that is jackson square; maybe that is the one. >> thank you. now we'll google it. >> i would hope that we would as a commission have this weigh in on those decisions. let's find out where this jackson street is and jackson square, but--[inaudible] >> we may consider a naming policy. okay, thank you. >> thank you. >> next we have a closed
5:22 pm
