9:03 am
only which of - the first cost driver the cost of the inhibitions and out-of-pocket cost driven by large hospital consolidation this is the rapidly cost increase for the drugs to treat cancer and cure hispanics c and other anti viral drugs and others anti you mean minute drugs although we have many drugs as generic for several years the mustards are increasing the costs of generics to get a profit late cost driver that the services is hss members the utilization will considers unfortunately, our membership depresses chronic illness our well-being program is so

9:05 am
this is calculated into the health premium and the rates are decreased with the rate agreements guaranteed through 2019 you may recall that kaiser permanente decreased if 2017 and held them flat the katrero park increases 4.7 increase and added a cop structure to match blue shield neither of the plans changes the premium costs it is important to note it hiv drugs are excluded in the drug charge adding best doctors for the fund and the kaiser permanente increases for the actives amount to 5 percentage the kaiser permanente medicaid advantage increases 8 percent for the sustainability fund with the
9:06 am
premium increase for medicare is 8.76 percent the blue shield for active uses and others retirees are 3.79 percent we've funded blue shield the employer takes the risk up to a certain dollar amount we pay the pharmacy and the other costs we continue to work with blue shield with significant success to keep the costs down adding the best doctors and sustainability fee bring the blue shield to 4.682 percentage with the retiree there over 16 percent working with blue shield and the proposed lowered to 10.2 the actuary recommended to accept the proposal and expand the ppo
9:07 am
that was offered the first time and the medicare decreasing the rate increase by 11 percent our self-funded ppo administrative code by the a.k.a. would have increased by 48 plus percentage for actives and early retirees and the health service board used the rate stabilization to reduce those from 12 mrs. percentage the ppo ac was calculated at the 29 percentage with the actuary voted to - the new city plan ppo rather than continuing the self-funding this as fundamental change not a benefit change the reduction this reduces the ppo
9:08 am
increased to 14 percent the overall increase for 2017 would have cost 14 plus $9 million by adapting the ppo instructions only to 2 want 5 percent at the 5.3 those amount to a million dollars our active self-delta ppo increased by .8 were reduced by 6 percent for 2016 over 2017 and are the same for 2017 the pacific delta plan for the retirees that adam an additional service lifelong disability andtions for the actives is florida inchanged
9:09 am
in 2019 beginning in - smoking on the status of insured and this again decrease the premium by an average of 7.1 percent overall a total increase for the benefits is overall the total average compares favorably with the 9 percent i realize i may have received concerns from the medical retirees i want to assure you the plan will payal plans through by physician that accepts medicare and we believe the concerns are unwaeshtd the new ppo has a broader plan than the old city plan it has additional benefits and the lower premiums through kaiser
9:10 am
permanente and low co-pay we hope to dispel the confusion what is covered along with our kaiser permanente there will be 20 members of the committee to help to educate and 5 town hall members that can't attend because of timing or that distance during and before enrollment- i also know that representatives from kaiser permanente and blue shield and united health care are here i urge your approval thank you director dodd's. >> supervisor yee. >> good morning, ms. dodd i have a related question i noticed that your reserves for the trust fund has been dwindled quite a bit from 11 millions to
9:11 am
3 million or so i'm wondering are there any plans to replenish to grow that back up are we in any danger you know of a shortage. >> we've spent the reserve amount over the last two years to buy down the early retiree active and rates to make them comprehensive with blue shield and capillary this year the board went through two rate deliberations what to buy down our policy is to set aside 1/3rd of any excess not excel by premiums over expenditures and to amortize any decreases over 3 years that amount would so been
9:12 am
3.679 millions the rate increased 48 percent plus to further decrease those costs and i don't believe that we are in - we still have what's the balances pamela? whatever 11 millions plus 3.79 is. >> so there's 3.79 that should be adequate nonetheless we have a tremendous number of sick people and if it isn't we will amortize any loss over 3 years but increase the premiums obviously. >> i'm curious what's the average autumn that you've had
9:13 am
in they're for the last 10 years. >> i think. >> i don't have that stabilization we implemented this policy of amortizing both blue cross blue shield and the delta dental and the city plan we implemented it i think 6 years ago but we could go back and get that information to you there was a period because the premiums went up so high a lot of people left and left us with a surplus in stabilization we spent down the surplus last year. >> i have one other question regarding the long term disability insurance i noticed a decrease of 7.1 percent over and over something like that which
9:14 am
is curious to me. >> the decrease was based on our agreeing to give a percentage to the insurance company with a low amount of smokers so they decreased our amount and luckily only 2.7 percent of our employees are smokers the national average is 22 percent. >> i'm happy to see the decrease. >> thank you. >> okay. thank you colleagues, any further questions okay mr. rose, can we go to your report. for number one. >> yes. on page 7 shown in table one of the total estimated city and member costs for delta
9:15 am
plans and long term disability and life insurance is 63 million dollars plus in 2017 which is a 4.79 increase in the 2016 the fidelity estimated cost for the health and dental plan as well as the long term disability and life insurance for the city itself in 2017 is $581 million approximately 24.3 or an increase in the 4 hundred million people in 2016 we recommend that you approve that ordinance. >> thank you mr. rose any questions for the budget analyst anyone wish to comment commissioner or hss fellow
9:16 am
commissioner ms. breslin a hero and want to recognize here if there are any other commissioners, i apologize but anyone want to comment you'll have 2 minutes and additional people want to speak please line up against the wall with 2 minutes to speak. >> good morning my name is karen breslin i'm a member of the benefits and on the health service board they voted 4 to 2 to remove the existing city plan and blue shield for the eligible retirees they'll be put into the new plan a special meeting held at a different times and place teleconference rushed through with little notice to our members and the board member i was kept in the dark until 3 days before this roams removes a choice for the city plan
9:17 am
employees that is a self-funded plan and all assets and liabilities blink to the city or trust the plan is a united health care plan and calling this the new city plan a misleading and will confuse the members when the medicaid retirees are removed the only members remaining will be actives and early retirees they're the highest cost and there will be little subsidy left for the next year there are under 2000 members there has been no explanation how this plan will be sustainable the only plan the retirees have available to move out of area it only covers methodology retirees no explanation of how medicare of
9:18 am
employees living outside of the u.s. are covered they cover the medicare retirees seeing local dollars it is a good choice as last year but not a mandated. >> one more statement. >> sure. sure. >> to the rushed many questions have been met unanswered this causes a lot of confusion and distrust and will you put a lot of staff at extra work thank you. >> thank you, commissioner. >> next speaker, please. >> my name is july 4th kit are retired city employee and a resident of district 7 i have here letters from the protect our benefits president larry on his views and oath copies for everyone. >> i just want to say i have
9:19 am
for many, many years been in city plan one and want to continue in that plan the city plan is important to keep because not all decreases take medicare the highly skilled decreases treating a serious disease didn't take medicare the differences of quality of services the city plan allows access to all decreases and freedom of choice that is the plan you want to do away with it is a self-plan administrative code by the united health care that provides a visit to all an actual decrease for a second opinion not the case in what is proposed in the change thank you thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> chief financial officer
9:20 am
i've been asked by director dodd to read into the record a letter that she received from greg the commission on the health service board dear kablth republican thank you for your offer to remain on the finance committee for the fully funded medicare ppo plan that replaces the blue shield 65 plus plan and the self-insured plan for retirees as a commissioner and former chief financial officer for the department of health and former acting chief financial officer for the health service i studied the issues thoroughly and took time from meeting with our actuary before voting i remain convinced the plan will have broader geographic come over and a lower cost than the plan that
9:21 am
replaces i understand the concerns of retired members that worry about access to theory physicians and hospital i too am a medicare eligible retiree and will be losing my blue shield conform i was concerned about losing any says, however, i'm satisfied this will not be an issue u h c has data indicating 94 percent of physicians already participating in this plan and those physicians current provide 95 percent plus of the services in addition no changes in the covered services member cops are lower and an importantly the total monthly cost is lower than the blue shield 65 plus plan city plan and even the kaiser permanente medicare advantage plan plus - >> i have plus a fully insured
9:22 am
plan no risk of under funding that will require the retention reserves for a self-funded plan adoption of this plan was 4.5 percent increase in costs to the overall medicare population versus and 13 plus there from the continuation of the preexisting plan in terms of cost containment it reduces the liability for forced employment retirement i urge the budget and finance to support this plan seller greg health system. >> okay. >> next speaker, please. >> herbert wiener first, i want to announce i hold shares in united health 98 of them. >> my concern is about the city health plan for one thing
9:23 am
it is a very good health plan the enar very of the rest of the country a comprehensive plan the people who are members are satisfied with that now, one concern i have is that okay. you're going to eliminate this plan for retirees eventually and eliminate for actives and retirees 65 years of age this is a road to that the other concern is okay. you will have we have two new plans now as retirees either kaiser permanente and the united health plan some people swear by kaiser permanente and not everyone is happy with the plan and the only choice you have is united health the ppo, now the rates are very low for the ppo for united
9:24 am
health however, there is nothing to stop them from jacking up the rates and the only alternative is kaiser permanente now suppose that kaiser permanente and united health jack i am the prices like the other ribbon barons in 1998 the rates went up for the city health plan sky-high and people fled as a result of that if the rates go sky-high where will people go maybe san francisco general hospital i don't know. but this is really a disaster in my opinion that was rushed through i think the message was pleased you have to approve this and make the wrong decision quickly this is the wrongs way to do business and i think we
9:25 am
should protest is this should be perpetual this is on outrage thank you >> okay. thank you very much anyone wish to comment. >> okay seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues if any questions or comments. >> otherwise let's entertain a motion. >> through the chair i mean i appreciated ms. defendant's deposition explanation not only in committee but the information i'm comfortable with moving forward i have to hear from the members of the public or the health commission i'll move to send to the full board with positive recommendation. >> motion by supervisor tang and a seconded by supervisor yee and without objection madam clerk call items two and three together. >> the resolution for the san francisco municipal transportation agency on behalf of the city to execute a grant

9:28 am
the amended versions essentially oh, and based on the changes their referred to the budget committee the two resolutions function as a apply forceps and expend grant approval if the applications are successful we complete the projects we're happy to make the candidates because the nature of the program the cap & trade program requires the successful applications seriously sooeshld be shovel ready entitled projects ready to go the emotion the cap & trade serve as a substitute so for other city funds and allow us to stretch our dollars further first on 55 fell street is as long as as parcel o a 100 percent accountable new construction approximately, six thousand square feet of retail commercial

9:32 am
largest part is very long term loan to the housing developer for the affordable housing the try grant part is to the sfmta to support their transit work so the vast majority of work b will go to the nonprofit developer and the only true grant part is to the sfmta. >> is there any advantage of these organizations to take the loan is if later than usual i mean. >> the - i understand the loan is a loan that will be paid back but a very, very long term loan that functions as as grant at the end of the term they'll refinance it and do it again. >> so it saves the city money we don't have to provide the gap funding for that.

9:35 am
life their refurnished but not upgraded and the fare box manufacturer cubic no longer supports those fare boxs for altogether there are also insufficient fare box sees and they don't - so some of the overall benefits of the in any fare box is the reliability and accounting and tracking for revenues and ridership they will also replace preprinted transfers with on demand realtime that printing of ios transfers and will go through that in a little bit the fare box hope with the security accommodating new

10:23 am
good evening everybody. one, i want to congratulate all of the young people receiving scholarships today. this is a exciting time and was just thinking 4 7 of you if all of you gave me half your scholarship money, i can go buy the car we all want and it will be like it is all of ours but i keep it at my house mpt i thank you for your dedication and hard work on being deserving of receiving the scholarship this evening. just going to say 3 quick things, young, never be content with average because it is as close to the bottom as the top. to give more perspective, always remember a c is just as close to a f as it is to a a. a c is just as close to a f as a a so always strive for a's in life for everything you do. remember
10:24 am
that. secondly, always focus on persevering and never let anyone tell you you can't do anything and be successful. you should have 124 perseverance of a insect that all us may see and know but may not realize how strong they are and how much they persevere and that sh bumblebee rr. the reason i say that is a bumblebee isn't supposed to be able to fly. you go and tell a bumblebee that. you see them flying traev/7 non stop because of weight and their wings they are not suppose today be able to fly and yet they still fly. any time someone says you can't succeed or be successful just remember the bumblebee defying the odds. last, and this is something i always want you to keep at heart is always know where you want to go. whether
10:25 am
you set a 3 month goal or 6 goal or year worth of goals, always know where you want to go so you remember the childrens story alice in wonder land and alice is talk toog the ches shire cat and they have a exchange and she asks the cat for direction jz the cat says, where do you want to go and she says, i don't know. the cat said, well then it doesn't matter. always know where you want to go because that is the only way you get roadmap to success and where you want to end up with. i have the honor and privilege to introduce the leader of our city and by the way, this is a leader who had to be in charge and had to make strong decisions during challenging time. he is also a leader who spenz the most time that i have seen in bayview hunters point in many years so appreciate him for that. he is also a mayor who focuses on
10:26 am
making sure that we are not device v and all work together to get things accomplish. if you look what is happening across the country and even in the city, it is very important now that we focus on strategies and working together. he is a leader in affordable housing, he is a leader in reforms needed for our communities to be successful so all of us have equal opportunities and he has been a leader in social justice and equity. i want to thank him one, for his work and leadership through the challenging time. i want to thank him pr being here for the young people all the time including this evening and without further ado, here is our mayor, mayor ed lee. [applause] >> thank you for that introduction shmon and thank you for your wonderful work at the school board. i know that
10:27 am
the more people from the community that get on to our elected body will really help and i know the school board is doing well. we are because of you and hid ruand all the other school board members and richards leadership we are the best performing urban public school in the state of california so thank you very much for that leadership. [applause] allison, thank you and we are proud of our sf state as well and want to thank omar, thank you for inviting us to this beautiful place and before i begood in , let me share good news with everybody. we just learned that we won the lawsuit filed against the warriors arena so now we'll start building the arena and start moving forward on a
10:28 am
wonderful opportunity have this team come back to san francisco as they left a few years ago and played wonderful city of oakland and maybe we can win a few championships as well. wanted to share that with you because as i talked about the warriors being success i'm looking at success with our scholar squz very proud. very proud of all you because not only have you done it academically-i went through all your backgrounds and and i know there are a lot of other challenges you had to overcome in order to get into a position where you could succeed even more. i know too that most of you will be the first in your family to attend college and that means a lot of other people in your family will depend upon you to be successful and to kind of paint the way for them to be their success. i am extraordinarily
10:29 am
moved by each and ever one of your stories mpt i too was a recipient of a few scholarships when i went to college. i don't think i would have been able to attend had schools i was privileged to go to without those scholarships. whether they were at private college or uc berkeley. those scholarships were a huge advantage to not have to work as much and go to school and work half time like a lot of students do to afford the very exeexpensive tuition and living expenses, so i'm glad to be in a position in a city like san francisco and when we talk to people about helping whether they are a engineering firm committed to stoit and san francisco community for many years and if you know anything
10:30 am
about [inaudible] hill they are at the heart of a lot of infrastructure work with public utilities commission and have been very successful. they will make sure that our pipeline jz water systems and sewer systems are all working and at the same time they are able to see the actual talent of the people they work with in the present and future and see the talent come through and hopefully you will be able to join public utility ue till commission and [inaudible] others who stepped up. we had people that said i want to give the money. i believe in your vision. i know and hear what shamon and [inaudible] are doing at the school board and want these kids to have every opportunity to succeed and don't want any attention just say take this and make sure the
10:31 am
right kids get it. they all had one thing in common and that is the only thing i will be speaking to by something i'll ask of each one of our scholar awardees tonight and that is real san francisco thing. you know, for me, the door of opportunity was open not by myself. i think i could have been a smart, i could have done a lot of good grades and did all that but that wouldn't have earned the confidence or investment people made. it is also the feeling i know in san francisco we have and that is the support for each other. that, when we have the opportunity door open for us, our obligation of a life time basis is keep that door open for somebody else. all of you will make something of yourselves. i feel that way, you will accomplish your goals,
10:32 am
you will have happy families and have your own kids and responsibilities, but also the most important thing is just remember where you came from and how you got there and the people helped you that you turn around and you just keep the door open and help somebody else. that is very simple lesson in life but it is so san francisco because what i try to do in running the city is i look at housing developers and look at companies that are investing millions and millions of dollars and i say okay, if we help you establish your business here, i want you to employ local people. warriors, when you build your stadium i want you to have local hire. ucsf, will wh you build a new hospital, i want you to reach out to our programs and get local people hired. tech companies, i want you to fly out with all wrour poky mon
10:33 am
stuff, get some of those jobs for our kids and open up making sure we train our kids in the technology and jobs of the future. so, even though you see a lot of success going on, there are many of us day too dai day saying, keep the door open for somebody else, support our non profits, support our school district, support our community serving associations. think about communitys always because that will always be the most important thing you could do and when you get a good education and good degree and good reputation, quite frankly that may be your goal, but it doesn't mean a lot-it means 10 times more when you apply that to building a strong community from which you came from. so, i'm about rebuilding all public housing in san francisco because i grew up in public housing and i never want public
10:34 am
housing residents to be called public housing residents. i want them to be the citizens and residents of san francisco. that means everybody gets quality housing and we will put the entire direction of our economics of our city to make sure that happens. good paying jobs, 21 st century jobs, that is what we want everybody to participate in. that is why we work hard to raise minimum wage and end discrimination squl work hard to erase the barrier jz even if people made mistakes they can't suffer their entire life from those mistakes, they need to recover. recover so we don't end in a place where people can't grow and move forward. that is why the city is so graitand took up the crazy responsibility to mayor of san francisco. who would
10:35 am
want tobe mayor of peebals republic of san francisco? there are so many view jz so many things that have to be done but i took up the challenge because i have a lot of friends that said they would help make the city great and they are doing so and there is something we can get done as a city if we work together and support each other and make sure we never think about communitys in isolation, we are people that can help each other. tell you a story and it is one i'm proud of because it has to do with my own community. in a few weeks hid ruand i will also add about 16 more scholarships. i had friends in chinatown who were part of these family associations. for years if you know chinatown and it is made
10:36 am
up of a lot of different associations. some of these associations were created way back in the 1800's because there were a lot of discrimination of chinese so had to form own groups called family association to pull the money together because no one would hire them to do work. they had to borrow money from their own people because the banks wouldn't lend money. they wouldn't let them buy property. sound familiar? didn't happen just to chinies but did happen to chineties. the family associations over many decades helped themselves. when i became the mayor 5 years ago the family association said mayor, will you bless us with your presence? for many decades the family associations gave scholarships to our kids and we are proud of that. chinese, we love education and love our
10:37 am
kids to succeed. i said i think that is a good idea but have one condition. they said, what is that because we didn't-you are the first chinese america mayor, can you come help announce the scholarships? i said i'm proud you are doing scholarships but also say as the first chinese american mayor i'm proud to do that and also proud if you open up the scholarships. they said, what do you mean. this is a time be agchinese american i can show we support all youth that need scholarships as well. if you were to open up that would be a big message to have other kids not just chinese kids be recipients of the scholarships and now we are in our 4th year where they opened
10:38 am
up their scholarships. we have 10 non chinese coming in to be part of the overall scholarships they fund. the point being, our communities have the same values, we want the same levels of success for our kids but we are part of a larger community of san francisco and can help each other out. if we just open the doors of opportunity and i'm proud that our chinese community said to me, we would be willing to open that up because now during the scholarships, the fmlies come and have dim sum after the scholarships and they are experiencing each others culture and it is amazing what you can do when you ask people, don't just think of yourselves, but think the larger community. we understand the history of the chinese community. we
10:39 am
need to bring everybody together. i want to share that with you because these are life experiences that you will all have and i just say that the stronger person will be the one that says i remember how i got to where i am and i will pay it forward and keep that door wide open for other people so other people can experience what we are experiencing about being embraced by your community. final word, it is a scholarship but also want to think-want you to think of it as a investment. you're my investment. i'm investing in you and these days that is a powerful statement. when someone says i invest in you they are looking at the ipo and you to succeed so the money
10:40 am
they put out there can say it was really worth it. that you did what that money-what investments ought to do. you took it and grew it and made everything possible that you can make out of it. sthis what an investment does. i think the highest praise is you are our cities investment so you is a lot more people that will suroun you for that success. all the more to you and to say again on behalf of the city, i thank you for your accomplishment and leadership and have a lot more people when e throw with the education we are identifies jobs so come and work with the city or companies that work with us being in san francisco. i know i will take a look at the other wonderful cities in the country but you are always know that the warriors are in san francisco. congratulations

11:02 am
this time. moving onto your regular special calendar. item 5, presentation and discussion regarding connect sf transportation vision plan. >> good morning. i can see all of you, but >>[laughing] ed reiskin down here. members of the board, members of the commission, mr. chairman and mr. pres., i'm really grateful for the opportunity to come together today and in this unique increase my, joint format to talk about an effort that we been undertaking that i think is critical importance as we are facing the demands that the city is. a wild back, director rahaim and director of county transportation authority as wells karen rich and gillette from the mayor's office got together and decided we needed to collaborate on him
11:03 am
much longer-term approach to transportation planning in the city. i think there's been a lot of great transportation planning that has happened in the past few years and decades, whether from the land use planning, the area plans, various kinds of transportation plans and project plans that we done. but, i think we all agreed particularly given the dynamic change that's happening in our city that we needed to take a more conference of citywide and long-term approach to planning transportation in the future and doing it with calling it a transportation plan but it's really a joint land use and transportation plan to transfer check plan is very much informed by land use. so, it is been so far a great collaboration should i think it's one that's absolutely necessary for us to do as a city. it's probably something we should've been doing all
11:04 am
along but certainly now given what we are facing as a city, it's just all the more important. so it has been a great partnership. i want to thank the planning commission for making staff available to work with us. we've been working between our agency, planning, the mta and mayor's office. i think this is really important work and will really benefit from whatever feedback and guidance you have to provide us today. >> thanks commissioner could i also can see all of you. i'm down here on the other side john rahaim with the planning department should i want thank you for coming together to get this is been a goal of commissioner johns and for a long time to happy to finally make this happen. as director reiskin said, just a joint effort between the three agencies in the mayor's office and it is i think the most conference of approach to
11:05 am
transportation planning that the city is taken in a long time. something i think that he, we agreed really needs to happen. especially in light of the city's growth and the reduction in car ownership and all the factors that are going into putting pressure on our transportation system. inevitably, when your conversations like this they are complex and it is very challenging and appropriately so to talk about transportation in and of itself without talking about land use patterns, without talking about issues of equality and how this -how the public gets around the city. so, these discussions will in fact become complicated. they will inevitably involve discussions of the city's growth, where the city is going, how the city is growing as well has access to the transportation systems are and where that system evolves and grows. including issues of pedestrian safety housing affordability, traffic congestion that's all going to be encompassed in this subway and we have to address accurate as you'll hear in the presentations from the staff, we are-this is a transportation plan editor needs to be but happily informed by land use
11:06 am
patterns and other cities growth in the next coming years. so, what you will hear is a presentation from reese espinosa and members of the staff or the mta about the components of this plan. as well as the land use productions we are prepared to kind of informed decisions about this plant can we look forward very much to hearing your comments and as you'll hear, we are ready and will be preparing in the fall for a more robust public outreach on this effort. so, with that i think will get into staff presentations. thank you. >> good morning commissioners could bury a espinosa with the san francisco planning department i start with a presentation today i want to just ground us in what we heard from the previous two presentations both the mta board and the planning commission this week and last
11:07 am
week. we talk to you a bit about the state of the mta system in your presentation by tom acquired auditory white from the mta. we talked a bit about iran use projections by the patterns of land use and policies that shape what our city looks like today. so, for today's presentation staff will describe to you what this long-range effort is and we all can't connect sf because it's about connecting all of those thoughts regarding land use, transportation, economic development, demographics, all of those factors that will go into shaping a very complex city and challenges to come. so i will walk you through the presentation good i will walk you through the what the components are of this effort and it will be over a couple of years because there are so many complex factors. we are coming to you early because we want to get it right. we will make sure
11:08 am
were grounded in the framework we get to hear from you and your expectations in this effort. and also that we understand how to shape our conversations with the public and the community as this goes forward. so i really welcome the opportunity to hear your feedback on that get us out with a presentation and then i would like to introduce my colleague ran sub away from the mta to be part of the presentation with me. i also want to about other stop in the room. i appreciate into michael schwartz from the mta for being here good as well as other staff who been integral to going this overall effort together. so thank you very much. so, why are we here today? connect sf as i mentioned is about shaping our city's transportation future. our transportation network is such a finding element of our city and how we get around. it creates a cities livability, our economic vibrancy, it has impacts on environmental quality and urban character. i connect sf effort is citywide.
11:09 am
it looks to both consolidate and coordinate transportation related planning efforts to improve mobility for all folks in san francisco and as director reiskin mentioned, it is a multi agency effort for both the planning and implementation agencies will be involved in connect sf. there are some major components that i want to talk about.. first, we have a city gen. plan and there is a key component in there which is a transportation element did it links all of the city's guiding plans and policies regarding transportation. the transportation element is also the to in a moment has updated in 20 years so we need to catch up our thinking in what policies help guide and shape our modification of how we implement our transportation system. the general plan as you know, is linked to the work of the city planning department and in addition, we buy san francisco transportation plan that will be updated get the
11:10 am
san francisco transportation plan typically undertaken by the san francisco transportation authority, and it gives shape to our priority projects, our plans, and are funding and revenue streams that will help shape the investment in infrastructure over the next 25-30 years. it's an important document. those are guided by our policies. we need to do them but more important way, we need to link them together to make sure they are working in tandem and not at cross purposes. we also will be undertaking a series of mortal studies did with this means looking in detail at the transit network, at our street network, understanding all of the different components and how they will affect our system overall. in so doing, really the leadership of the different agencies in the city came together because they knew they
11:11 am
needed to undertake these plans and projects but more importantly, what was missing and absent with this overall vision this overarching vision, for land use and transportation to really help shape and guide the overarching policies for these important implementing documents. the vision is really a process. it will be shaped by stakeholder and public input and it will help guide our thinking 50 years out into the future. you may be asking, why such a significant time horizon? 50 years is a long time. who knows who can predict the future but we do know what some of the key uncertainties are get we do know some of those drivers and change will be and we also know what disruptive forces are happening now do we need to pay attention to whether it's changing demographics, or different regional funding opportunities could all those factors we need to have in one place understand and talk about the implications of each. so, those are the main components. i will walk through what each one is. we could not
11:12 am
do this without stakeholder involvement. so this includes not only our partner agencies, but other agencies within the city. clinically, regional partners such as are other operating agencies bart as an example being other key partners that will help shape policy decisions for land use and transportation in the region. we also critically feel stakeholder involvement means communicating with the public and hearing what people's needs concerns, thoughts are. as we go through for the as john mentioned, were going to be undertaking a series of outreach opportunities through the fall to keep this off and understand the needs of the public. so, with the vision i will walk you through what that entails. the opportunity for the vision isn't funding pensions it allows us to test our thinking with big ideas and really see
11:13 am
what can we innovate, what can we shape. how do we need to think outside the box and maybe think about this c-changes though becoming and a future. we will identify the goals objectives and policy grammar as i mentioned give that overarching framework to help guide our policy documents to come. we know that there are some uncertainty in the future. especially for such a long-term horizon, but will allow us to test our thinking in different ways by using scenario planning to help shape different pathways if we went one direction and invested in the network without look like? if we took a totally different approach what would that mean for our city? so it will allow us to have these conversations. we are not necessarily unique in this idea. new york deftly undertook a visioning process called one new york but i think as a city, so important to the economy and to housing
11:14 am
considerations in this region, we are going to be a leader in our thought processes and thinking to help other cities in the region tackle these big questions as well. so, will introduce the transportation dialogue engage the community, discuss ideas, and really identified a number of different scenarios plus preferred future we want to see. we really have this opportunity to shape the future we want and so this is an important dialogue will be undertaking it this year with the public outreach kit will be doing that in the fall and into 2017. we are going to start out with some guiding goals that we want to see if that resonates with the public. certainly, we envision a future that thinks about equity and i'm really helps to understand the implications of equity for our city, making sure users of our system both equitable and affordable access to good
11:15 am
services, activities and destinations. we know that safety and moving is of quite critical importance of our community to be above attractive and safe travel options that support health, livable neighborhoods and address the needs of all users. environmental sustainability is a critical component of this because we want to support a healthy environment with clear quality that is responsive to climate change and different dynamics that provide sustainable choices for our future. and economic vitality is a key foundational goal of this effort. the people and businesses easily access to destinations for jobs and commerce, including both established and growing neighborhoods in san francisco and the region. so, this is our starting point. we like to take these calls out to the public and see what resonates and if the public thinks these are the core that we should focus on.
11:16 am
other major components as i mentioned, mortal studies. we are doing some pulmonary work now for a subway vision. so i might think we heard comments from the planning commission previously about with the future of our local rapid transit network and how can we both plan and build and think about those things in tandem. so we're doing a lot of technical work to study these efforts now and will be bringing something back in the fall. we also will be looking at both opportunities for muni transit and regional trends and how they link together how they serve the city them how they serve the immunity patterns into and out of san francisco. we will be looking at the role of our freeways and arterials. so, how do those major linkages for goods movement and service delivery shape a role for that travel and transportation here in the city. we will be building on existing and ongoing multimodal lands. so, not just about transit. we are a city that thinks about and welcomes into the-investments
11:17 am
and pedestrian and bicycle safety. better infrastructure for both those modes which as we've seen, with a reduction in car ownership for newer generation, there's an opportunity here to invest in those modes as well. we will also be undertaking a san francisco transportation plan 2050 which will be a critical component for input into the next round of the region's plan bay area. so, this will be the most informed by the mortal studies and vision to ensure regional transit and that investment is linked to that will be looking at investment scenarios so opportunities for funding, revenue sources, revenue streams and where we prioritize those investments. it would be important to mention our transportation element update, which as part of the general plan, is an
11:18 am
important codification of her city's transportation goals and policies. the last transportation element update really gave shape to the transportation network that you see today with the four corridor plan. we also know that our application of these is what you see as directors and board members when projects come to you get so this is a way to link all those things together at the local and neighborhood scale. so, with that i like to turn it over to my colleague graham, to ground us in the current commit conditions and what we need to think about today. >> thank you teresa. good morning commissioners and board members. grand-from sfmta. building a little bit on what me of the planning commission heard from tom and victoria last week in terms of where are we at today the transportation system. from a regional
11:19 am
perspective, we have seen dramatic growth in ridership on caltrain and bart. over the last five years, unique metro has also seen increased demand for its services. and under each of these systems are at times when we are forced to leave passengers behind at the platform and the demand simply exceeds the services we can provide today. also, i want to note the muni rail system while wholly contained with the geography of the city and county of san francisco, the rail system and bus system are absolutely key pieces in the result has petition network and fully serve that function and continue to integrate regional and local services to make it seems transit experience for travelers. specifically, looking at bart, their extensive stream ridership pushing not only beyond their own adopted standards in terms of customer experience and passenger comfort onboard, but also national subway standards. in key to san francisco is to recognize two out of every three bart trips in their entire system either start or end on market street. that is
11:20 am
artistry is really the backbone of the bart system and providing key regional connections. when we shift beyond just transit and think about the multimodal nature of travel with to and from san francisco, the sf mta is stated objective of 50% or more of all trips by nonprivate auto mode. we've done statistical we survey's with the past few years and in fact we are just above that target at around 52% of trips occurring. in nonprivate auto modes and that's both regional entering, regional exiting within the city of san francisco. we have seen a sort of study percentage of their and that is because this is all trips throughout the day. it's a big number. just over the more million troops protected odyssey that continues to grow as our employment and residential population continue to increase. if we take a little bit deeper dive and look specifically at
11:21 am
commute trips we are noticing the net increase, the new trips that we are capturing from a transportation system, are actually occurring primarily by transit and active mode. that can be existing commuters, making a decision to use an alternative mode or a camino commuter same, to leave my car at home or on something up and own a car. this is really just evidence that we are continuing to improve and increase the available transportation choices for people and they are taking that. so some evidence of these during commute or not we are seeing shifts in people making choices in slightly different ways that may have in the past. again important to note this a small number of trips relative to the daily total. that's probably why we'll continue to see small increase of 50% but we want to see continued progress. then, when we think not just about people but how goods are moving
11:22 am
around our city, this religion a shift in how that occurs. in the past we relied on deliveries for difficult to access or unavailable goods locally and now delivery is used for daily necessities and groceries and common occurrences. we would use it neighborhood commercial street to access him with all our physical goods. now, there's a most like mobile storefronts with on-demand delivery and at the drop of a dime you can get whatever you need without leaving your residence. this is all to translate to changes in how those goods are moving on our circa street, are we using -the steps of the postal using arterial and local roads appropriately and how is that evolution going to occur at the demand for these on-demand goods and services continue to increase. in terms of that movement of people and goods, this is the inextricably linked nature of transportation and manuscript that movement of goods and services to amines which is the land-use side of
11:23 am
the equation. there is a cyclical nature to these entities that san francisco is actually well-positioned both by the nature of its built environment and long-standing policy to be a leader in stated-staples targeting our sustainable communal strategy and sp-375 in reading both the state and the region in those areas and at last week's planning commission a prime example this brought up by commissioners johnson and the richards on the central somite intent of transportation when use decisions are being made in comp concert and forming one and that's exactly the type of decision-making and relationship thinking we want to continue to encourage. as we look to the future, we need to acknowledge there is a level of imbalance in terms of jobs and housing, location geography and density and how we access that. but that we are continue to pressure to grow in the two
11:24 am
channel that growth into positive weight and improve upon their past decisions and how we move into and through san francisco. so, we want to think not just about the plan we put in place but external forces that may influence or affect the plan that we've set up your we traditionally think uses acronyms as steep social technological economic environmental and political. recognizing that there are external factors beyond our control and we should try to plan and account for these uncertainties in some manner. lastly, there is a key component of that is to knowledge that transportation
11:25 am
and land use" is not purely a capital build, build, build perspective but there's a system management and a policy end of the spectrum we need to consider in terms of making sure we utilize in all our resources and assets efficiently and to the greatest extent possible as a means to achieve our stated goals and outcomes we are looking for. so, as we try to think, again, about some of the uncertainty out. the plans we put in place there's a number of questions that we as staff brainstormed and there really centered around what is the city-what is san francisco aspire to be on the land-use will build a transportation perspective? will will will like to see the city in the future in terms of the level of access, mobility and inclusivity? there's a number of fronts by which we can start to tease that thinking forward and try to bring out the direction and vision that we at san francisco
11:26 am
hold for ourselves, but staff developing these questions are great. we really need buy-in from the public of the need to engage some of our citizens and ask them to be visionary and to think not just beyond themselves or their own street but for the city as a whole because we are here together and together we can set that direction for san francisco. so, teresa is to come back and how we are really looking to engage the public, get them to weigh in and make sure the staff are clear on how we can channel their vision and their direction for san francisco. >> you heard about this effort and i was reading an article in the economist that talked about young people and how people are changing their travel behavior overall and it's a something like 30% of all young people are now taking ridesharing options for their travel behavior. this effort is so critically important because it we were business would be thinking what is our research and development arm and what
11:27 am
are we going to do to really think about how we put it towards the future and are be ready? so, with that, we need to hear from our public to understand what are the changing roles and values? what we need to be ready for? so think about their values and priorities are for the future and what the city should be like for future generations. i think san francisco is it unique city with a special character and so, do people want to continue to preserve that? do they want to modernize some things? do they want to have all of the above? that the composition both easy and hard work and undertake with the public over the next several months. so with the vision, it's really about understanding eating a comprehensive and deep look at community matters experiences. moving through the city and their needs and priorities for future transportation system.
11:28 am
it will be a hard conversation because the natural reaction of folks is to say, well what about today? you heard about some from graham crowded conditions on trains and buses and we are trying to advance our work there and implement are great quality service. people care about what's happening today on their street in the community but we also want to help shift the dialogue to the future and it's hard to do. but we want to make sure we are starting point is grounding in people's current realities and existing conditions. so that we can create an overarching 50 year vision for the future that speaks to both the current needs and get a head of the factors and trends you are graham speak about that are to come. with that, i would like to offer up a few closing words from a citywide planning director gil kelly good to talk a little bit about the process going forward and also offer this opportunity to hear from you about your thinking and
11:29 am
feedback to us on this effort. what we need to think about. how to continue to engage the public in this very important and critical dialogue towards the future. >> thank you marissa and good morning directors and commission should they keep extending your time today to talk about this important piece of work coming for. i'll be very brief good i just want to embellish the comments a little bit from both graham and teresa on the public process and talk a little bit about the quality of public engagement on this one. although we define this as transportation and a conversation should in the end the focus on transportation, which i think many of us would find more broadly slightly more broadly as access and mobility, access meaning not only how do i get to transit which is one problem to solve in transportation, but also, how
11:30 am
do i bring the things i need my daily and weekly life closer to me so i don't need to take a trip. so those are both parts of the equation. but i think even more broadly than that, for the planning department and in particular this is opportunity for major scale public engagement across the city and i think it's one to be nearly impossible to have this conversation without bringing up a lot of other issues and one way to channel that energy is the way in which ram described. there are external factors we can build into the transportation thinking. the other but frankly and parallel, to both provoke and harvest some of the information to see feed into other efforts the planning commission tragically knows about why long-range planning work program. which i think will be an official. we won't be channeling people stop transportation can talk about that. they will need to have a weight to engage people and bigger questions and have a place for that in the conversation good so, i want to just let you know about that and with thinking through how that would work. one weight we see some particular to conduct
11:31 am
the early and middle phases of both the access and mobility conversation as was the larger one is to really make use of scenario planning which we have not done a lot of sons. i think it be very very helpful in this process to really not looking just big middle and large middle and small sizes of things or transportation speeds, or that kind of thing, but also to think about testing very different kinds of values in that conversation. so, you'll hear more about that as we get into the process but i think were looking at ways to engage people. people's imaginations. i feel like i've actually really getting something out of it because it's going to be a challenge to get people from the current here and no complaints about current transit and so forth to and more robust conversation about the future that we can bend back cast from and start prioritizing the immediate investments and improvements on. i just want to add that context to the public discussion part of it. to the
11:32 am
conversation. thanks >> thank you. >> that includes staff presentation >> thank you, yes that includes and were ready for any questions or comments you may have >> that you will open up to public comment then commissioners can comment after. so opening up to public comment.. this opportunity from emerson the public to address the commission regarding this matter. if you do it he could fill out a speakerphone. >> thank you. i appreciate you posting us having this wonderful conversation it did before you start, if i could, just that the public know that the chairman and the president is that a two-minute time limit for public comment
11:33 am
>> all up as much content as possible into mins but i think the wonderful conversation into his good i was writing and saw the two-lane street with a mighty victory over there in downtown. i would like to propose a list of 18 multilink one-way streets for event you understand these commissions are working on this. the interesting thing were looking at the correlation between low income density residence being hit by motor vehicles, president criminal behavior, the public arena open space, fast-moving one-way traffic and significantly underperforming retail business. i think that in terms of environmental and progressive we've left some options off the table. i think overall it's our plan is to create a carbon neutral society, that we have to do it amongst this conversation at the confluence of planning and engineering. right now, i believe that 40% of the environmental commission, 40% of our carbon carbon images come from the automobile really
11:34 am
looking at ways to limit that and technology and individuals are embracing that. i believe that we have more parts of cars that public open green space i think that's another interesting thing to look at. i know, right now somewhere between 50-60% of the hispanic 18-year-old graduate from high school and you might think, this is for the educational but this is things that can be solved by solving by planning and engine should look at are then used that she looks 80% of our new unit moving into 20% of our central city core. looking at the outside the box idea with more resources, more financial more natural political resources that many other places that we want to engage in conversation that other cities across the world are going to look at-can i use the over it please you want to look at and apply to their musicality. this slide i pulled from the 50 year plan. look at this guide and go he studied
11:35 am
color theory and look at the colors we have our red is very concentrated on the central city corridor. a little bit to the southwest, look to the southeast. i think that in terms of [inaudible] was slow the downtown >> thank you, sir. that is your time. >> idiot like to leave your drawing their. that would be great. >> i'm sorry president fong i miss the gentleman's name >> would you repeat your name for the commission >> i don't attribute my name by name is vino does a. they can for your public service. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is george wedding can i'm the president of the coalition for san francisco neighborhoods. very briefly, i would love a
11:36 am
definition of what the both groups consider equity. that would be very important. neighborhoods as definitions tend to change. the other thing, the economic vitality mentioned. this is going to be a real game changer as you change roads, transportation, cars, you are also changing the streets, access to businesses. already, we are being approached consistently by this week the geary corridor. i think what you are going to find is you're going to have intensive outreach . the groups i represent are very upset already about what is happening locally. they are
11:37 am
not looking forward. they're looking at what's happening to the neighborhoods and they don't like it. they don't like what happened on mission street. they don't like what is going on right now. so, anything you are going to do to push forward you are going to have to do a really good job to get people to accept what is happening. because all i hear is negativity. so, with that, the last thing is money. obviously, after taxes constantly you want money. for these plans more and more money for transportation. asking people for more and more money. property taxes. tax sales, you name it. the question is, how much are you really--are these people getting for what they are paying? the current person should be getting about 10,000
11:38 am
dollars in services a year for their taxes. they're not getting it. >> thank you. your time is up. >> next speaker, please. >> if anyone else wishes to address the policy body fill out a speaker card for us. thank you. >>, puberty. 27 years ago south beach marina apartments began that neighborhood is like the first neighborhood of these last the first neighborhood in new modern buildings. what were going eastern neighborhood of a general much of the eastern neighborhood plan that was settled eight years ago, how much is that still relevant? how much hit the mark? how
11:39 am
much of what happened because of the last couple of years of economic boom has kind of reduced that to dust? it's hard to go into the future. it's hard to have communities here. look at this meeting and i came here just because of this meeting and how many people do we have in the city you want to community engagement is tough. you have community engagement, the caravelle right now the communities is upset about that. i'm upset about our new articulated buses, 65, 67, 72. when you take a bus use it near the driver and listened to that rattle draft. i can hear the rattle in the back of the bus did so were having problems that we speak here. it does can be a work in progress. what we want is to a healthy community. we want less stress. what we
11:40 am
are setting up is a whole new plan and i am saying that south beach is never really become a community. it misses the aspect of community. what a community is a group of people that come together. you could you don't walk your dog and your push a baby carriage, it's hard to meet people. it's hard to be on the streets. there is a missing of community. we have to go outside the box to get that. 2 min. is slap- >> thank you. any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed... what kind of ping-pong back and forth if you don't mind. commissioner antonini >> i try to keep this brief. these are some of the things i said last week but i think it's worth bringing it up again. the first thing is i think we need some joint notification of the two commissions on major issues
11:41 am
of [inaudible] mta or from planning particularly with reference to planning where we have larger commercial developments, which will generate traffic and transit as opposed to housing which is generally much lower relatively speaking. so, whatever we can do about it a memo at least ahead of time and it's a major change, maybe it should be somehow calendared. if the commissioners [inaudible] the public is always coming to us complaining about mtas and i'm sure the reverse happens with you guys regarding planning issues. so that's the person get the second thing i want to bring up a couple of issues on bikes. i don't need an answer today, but we see a lot of bicycles without how much. i thought it was a law. i never see any enforcement of that but this adds to the severity of accidents when someone is hit
11:42 am
even at a slow speed if they don't have a helmet. i think that needs to be enforced. the other thing that seems counterintuitive is we spent a lot of money to create separate bike lanes and separate bike streets. the classic example is upper market will be graded-apparel quiet street perfect for bicycles and they still ride up and down market upper market, which is very dangerous because you have cars moving a relatively high speeds with curbs and are not expected to see a bicycle. we need some enforcement not only for drivers but also for bikers were so no notification that no rights beyond this point. please use corbett and that would be what i'd like to see. then, there've been a lot of complaints about the not too much can happen on masonic yet but it's one of the few arteries that exist for motorists to go west in the middle of the city. i am not sure why some of the bikes
11:43 am
baker wasn't what that is impossible because it parallels masonic for much of the way. it's a lot wider. the other thing about last week i think is important is the turn indicators at downtown where you have a separate turn signal for walkers. a separate turn signals for right turns. it works very well. i mean, people can get across safely the motorist can make the right turns without having to sit there and try to squeeze between pedestrians and this only leads to accidents because people try to get in as quickly as they can. the others, left turns, coming off of fillmore and turning onto lombard looking into the sun is very dangerous. there should be no pedestrians at the time you're making a left turn. because you can't see them. i am glad to hear you're doing some long-term planning but jiggly
11:44 am
with reference to working with other agencies and subways in particular because we live on a narrow peninsula. people from the east bay north bay and peninsula by necessity, have to travel through san francisco whether they want to are not. that topic is not going to go away. it's always going to be there. until they bite crossing or some alternate weeks, could we have to really buildout we had to really look at transportation in its own right of way because all were going to do is add more buses just clog up the streets even get subways are the most realistic way to go and maybe we can somehow work with our leaders in washington work rate a better dialogue with the congress to get more funding for where it's critically needed in this city. so, that is a view of the things i was thinking about. i am glad-the other thing is, i know there's
11:45 am
a lot of talk about you have an increase of people who are not using individual cars and that is probably to get i don't have any doubt that is the case, but you want to make sure you're not self-selecting out people who have cars, which often time his families with children who will avoid living in san francisco because it so difficult to have a car, drive, park. i mean we have to address the entire population not just this patient of everyone not having a car and i think we have to be equal in all ways and the more nice transportation we get in its own right away the more people are going to use it and not use cars. effective sit on a bus and take two hours to get somewhere in the city is not going to happen very often. i think that's the key to the whole thing. the other thing is
11:46 am
you spoke briefly about the online challenge that's created by all these people buying everything online. means more deliveries and would be the case before where they make one delivery to a store and then the pedestrian the buyer would have to make it to the store. now they don't make it out of their desk. it's not really good for them in terms of exercise, but also it's not very good for us. it looks like the transit of the future but perhaps we can find a way to reverse it or encourage the use of our stores both local and formula retail by actually purchasing from them rather than supporting something that requires more trucks. the other thing that's important when you talk about pdr which is a big issue with us, i think we have to look to relocate pdr, or support pdr. because that just adds more problems when they
11:47 am
have to take their product and drive it through narrow streets in neighborhoods that are typically small streets often with a lot of residential. i mean, we should encourage them to move closer to 101 so their access is easier rather than trying to squeeze them into a place where they really don't fit. we don't use rail that much anymore and i think that's important as we look at projects in the future. talking about saving pdr good let's save it but put it where it makes sense. so, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> mr. jim and i'm sorry. just to but at my naïveté i'm not so familiar with the term pdr >> eduction distribution repair. a classic car autobody shop >> very good. that's the term we don't really talk too much about over here. so is it
11:48 am
manufacturing uses which we used to call it >> very good. thank you for the clarification and >> personnel insure the mta board with say how happy i am this mentor i think it's important i think a lot of good from it. but that chairman fong has suggested and i agree the back-and-forth. the other thing someone made a comment about new york has done this exercise and i think mip level to find out what went well and what went poorly and an executive summary. i don't [inaudible] but that might be helpful as we begin the plan the public outreach. additionally like that available i forgot who said that reference new york but i think that's best practices are a good fit. thank you. >> i will start. thanks. i'm happy we are here obviously coming from planning and being
11:49 am
on mta we talk about these things all the time. i had a question by the transportation elements and am happy to hear were finally looking at that i get i know the housing element but he has to be updated every 40 good weather any guidelines oh pound of frequent viewers. update participation element and happily maybe thought about when we look at the housing almond-i'm not suggesting bundled in the transportation element looking at those side-by-side? because the howling housing element is where people are the living? >> real quickly kill kelly again. there is no prescription by state law for the tobacco to update the transportation almond. that's a local option at the housing almond is the only one that has that requirements. but, i think if i alluded to before, this is an opportunity to look at other overarching policies like housing policy that goes along with the transportation discussion. >> i would encourage we look as we look at housing elements we look at the transportation in the future because
11:50 am
especially the southwest southeast part of the city grow and the southern waterfront, it's going to be become more and more important those two documents online. >> absolute. as i mentioned us in planning. i think we'll get at some of that they are trying to get to by using scenarios to test different about that in one case we want to be-have the smallest ecological footprint that ashley might have more to do with access. getting things to work people are as much as it has do with mobility building morteza get one of those things for example, might be prioritizing and building of a couple schools is out these san francisco. so kind the school district into this conversation is important i think were going to try to reach as many those kind of relevant babies is as we can in this conversation >> ax you make me think about talk about job and commercial vitality but the issue of public open space and public facilities and how we make sure those factor into this larger than crosby people do need to be able to get to but i
11:51 am
transit. the school by transit. especially now more and more people are sending their kids to schools closer to them. so making sure that is part of the dialogue. the other point about your bringing things to people could i know this is harder to engage but if you can engage with the ridesharing services. they have incredible data available to them and they don't want to share their individual user data we should not ask that they know patterns either everything from whether to time of day to where the most frequent pickup and drop-off locations are for various services. i think we can engage those because for example in stock-card delivers for pyrite and safely at all the different grocery stores. having them part of the dialogue so we can figure out maybe they already are serving areas that are underserved and how do we better facility that. i feel like the issue often about the people doing transit and there's lots of research waited to convenience. people
11:52 am
do the most convenient option. it is convenient to god they will drive it is convenient to walk that's convenient to make transplant services of the next of convenience and people choose them because of that. so we can figure out the patterns. to a certain extent i think we spent we try to force people to have certain patterns or behavior could we they actually know what people's patterns and behaviors are maybe that something without checked mail sub demographic data around their user base. that would be useful. another thing i was thinking about in terms of equity the environmental sustainability oh idea of immunity we think about, receipts we like a bus stop apart. were looking at that with our moving forward plan but think about generally, from every place in the city is there a standard for how many blocks you from transit it is out to the community. it could be other
11:53 am
forms of getting around but looking at how we can if that is of value or something we want as part of this larger process. then, finally, obviously the issue of self driving cars that's another thing that intersects into this conversation and engaging people that are related to that because that's the next phase of the rideshare services we did not anticipate. so thinking about that could honestly rideshare taxis also should be part of that conversation as well. >> in that particular point about how can we maximize them for the first and last mile connection with the more traffic on the road better self driving. >> exactly. >> yes >> thank you. and commissioner moore >> i hope this is the first of many meetings. because i think the nexus between transportation and land use is so obvious it took about 5 min. but this group to talk and there were questions which showed the incredible necessity for us to work more closely together. as far as the vision plan, i think you are laying
11:54 am
out some incredibly ambitious and wonderful framework. the question i really have and it's a question of technique, are you encouraging us to not use the present as a starting point but look far into the future that is very difficult to do. particularly, when this commission every thursday since in the crossfire of what is not working that is indeed a significant gap between proper planning and the overlay of effective transportation plan. that's not a question of saying that you're ineffective. however, the city transportation planning at least for the us for san francisco the growth and changes by far outpaced anything we can do so we are dealing with a downside of what is not working. why we embrace for example the growth and the positive growth, in eastern neighbors and the changes every
11:55 am
week and there is not one thursday where it doesn't happen. all the neighborhoods the neighborhood network etc. standing in front of us and saying, on this you start taking transportation before seriously and changes and then use implementation, we are not planning. so you're having the citizenry which is basically seriously disappointed and affected by what's not working and you have great transportation ideas and implementation. however, the two are not about now you're asking us, and back to my initial question, how are you -how can we do it not to think about the present where we want to go and how we get there and do vision planning, which does not take the present into consideration?. well i do not mean to to say exclude the present condition and in fact, i think both the mta mta have a
11:56 am
lot of informational current gaps. we should take that as a starting point. but when i describe the use of scenario planning for example the first scenario is a baseline scenario not that we won't do anything else but will do kind of what we been doing. baby at a light rail line every decade or will add some buses at the rate we been doing it. what does that look like in comparison to narrowing those gaps and doing with the new growth we anticipate? that's the starting point for this scenario discussion and then i think we look at what does it take to do some more aggressive policies that will narrow the gap? and what do those investment implications it were those land-use change implications. i do not mean to say were going to exclude the president i think that is actually the beginning of the conversation but until you reach out and divided a desired future and then start back drafting by decade getting closer to the present, you don't have way of necessarily changing the current trajectory we are on. >> i like the linear and
11:57 am
interlinked thinking of what your link of your being hijacked, though by the new economy which has become more obviously in the last year and a half. how do you deal with these unforeseen attacks on the more predictable way you're protecting transportation planning? >> one way is to not try to be a slave 2.4 cast either in population were jobs reading types of jobs. instead to use ranges. for example, josh w who is your today and scott edmonson on our staff have done a lot of detailed work on land-use projections. taking into account the growth in recent uptick in the kind of employment you're talking about. would like to project that trans outburst of the more traditional trend. i think there's a way to play with some of these variables to serve triangulate on with the future actions might be. that's one example. we don't anticipate this current spike to continue
11:58 am
on its current trajectory forever in a 50 year period, but it is certainly get to come out of this with a vision that allows for adjustments to conditions as they change. >> just one more thought. as you were speaking, to keep an active neighborhood involvement i think will be critical to really be on target of where deficiencies had problems are. last week we had ms. hester here in front of us who kept reminding us that all of the transportation planning that she has seen mostly occurs as if that san francisco is a non-topography city, and she urges us as planning commissioners to bring that into the discussion. because it has a huge affect on how the systems work, where the issues
11:59 am
of accessibility and neck with your. i just want to throw that in. she is not here but i know she would probably want that to be heard by you as well. >> if i could add one point. the point about axis been so important and being the counterpart to mobility, is there been studies not in san francisco but other parts of the country, where people have examined sort of the dense mixed-use transit orientated type of development get one with a rail transit, one without in the greater dc area. the one without the rail for nearly the same number of trip reductions as the one with a real experienced and that's because roughly 5-six people strips are on foot by bicycle when you have all the services nearby. so, i do want to keep expanding the conversation went transit lines and wiggled and how do we think about neighborhoods, to third >> but first i want to say
12:00 pm
great presentation. i'm so pleased to be here because i think the released intersection is strong. mr. kelly, to your point that's what resonates with me as well. i know my neighborhood, i can get everything i need from a 95% of my trips on foot in the make such a big difference. i get to work on transit or on bike. for all my other trips i walk or link them with transit or bike. i think that really makes a huge difference as we get people used to that idea coupled to your point, with a delivery services that we now live, so those things i can't want to i could choose to have them delivered if i don't have access to a vehicle. i just want to say, thank you, to both the planning staff and the mta staff because whenever i look at these mode sharing statistics i realize that our work has really helped us dodgy about. when i look at these new commuters that we've added since 2006, and the small
12:01 pm
relatively small percentage of them that drive alone and i don't know what page that's him. page 19. the relatively small percentage that drive alone, we could barely accommodate that percentage on our city streets] so the fact we have so many people who chosen to take transit to bike and to walk has completely saved our bacon in the city otherwise would be it complete and total gridlock on our streets other than the authority had more writers on muni and rush out. those people that walk and bike, thank you very much people who walk and bike because that's helping a lot. also just want to say i traveled a lot and i've not been in a city where transit is not overcrowded at rush hour. so, if we think that's a reasonable expectation breast to have as a city that would be the one city in the world that manages it. we have to remember how important it is to get a lot of options, not just the
12:02 pm
commute trips but for the errand trips. i don't will he have a lot of other input because when i look back at the projects we have done i know we get a lot of concern and we get a lot of push back as were introducing projects, but i think the proof is in what happens a year down the line or two years i'm on. i use my own commute as a really good example. i take a flying five to work. the change in that bus line and the four years that i've been using it is dramatic. i get to work so much more quickly, so much more reliably and i know the growth on outline has increased and we have kept up with it. we can do it for that line. so we can do it for all ones could we can do it for speedier. would doing it permission and yes, there is a lot of concern when we make big changes such as the one we may commission it but again the group is going to be in what happens to those 65,000 riders on that mission line every day. i think what we're going to see
12:03 pm
them overseeing and continuing to see, is that they like the changes and they appreciate being able to get to work get to ahrens, take that corridor much more quickly much more reliably. so, i think that the community involvement is huge. but it can be so hard to capture the voices of the community who are pleased with the changes went to the bank and look forward to the changes as opposed to only hearing the people who don't want the changes and are upset with it. that's what i think we have to look to our exceedingly smart and well trained staff who know what they are doing. identical to mr. kelly's point, the planning department doing all of this trip modeling and all
12:04 pm
of this planning modeling and knowing whether the man is going to come, i've seen similar maps from the mta. we go with the job growth is good we know with the population growth is. we note that link them up and we've got to get rid of the weak points both in our bus system a pedestrian system and bike system for the people can feel comfortable in all those modes. thank you. i think is a good start i think were making really good progress could i also just want to clarify that commissioner antonini for helmet use a believe it's only under 16. when you see somebody like me riding without a helmet bashing not breaking the law. it just my personal choice to ride without a helmet. but you are right. somebody under 60 should be wearing a helmet. thank you. >> commissioner johnson >> so, i'm super excited to be heard. everyone on the planning commission has seen an advocate for this hearing and super excited when it got put on the calendar and i'm also super excited i know we have 12 today but i hope [inaudible] 14 and i think all of you would be willing again to be together [inaudible]. opportunity come back and see the outcomes of
12:05 pm
some of the process. so, just a couple thoughts. when i first asked this hearing a long time ago, i had a very different vision of what it was first i had no business it was sort of like i came from working in a development where things were more whole list. you just talk about transit and equity and open space and all these things. it which is the same conversation. when we had staff coming to cac and later chair of ocii commission was from all the agencies. was really this demarcation that i got appointed to planning and it was like i was real confused. i felt like there were certain things we cannot talk about baker jack about transit. that's mta. you tackle can talk about streets. that's dpw. we don't know it was very challenging. yet we got yelled out about everything. i was like what have i got myself into. so, when i first asked for this hearing was more about very prosaic things like i
12:06 pm
would still love to see i know that we are moving certain lines good there's moving four. the transit improvement project at one, five, 10 your map of where the lines are going to be added work capacity will be improved. because when we get people asking about eastern neighborhoods were other neighborhoods, it's good to be able to say well, with moving this project today because we have to at some point make some progress and concrete has to go on the run at some point but in five years, here is the plan for the transit access will look like to be great to have that as part of our packets per decisions. rather than relying on what individual commissioners can glean from the news or research on their own. as commissioners is our job to know that sort of information. so when i first started off asking for this hearing i just had a list of questions like that. sort of request that i think would be
12:07 pm
helpful but as time has gone on and i continued to ask the listing hearing my thinking had you called on what it was i thought we could accomplish. i'm really happy to hear this actually process now so not one hearing to talk to ourselves were a bunch of time and then nothing else. but i would love to see is i actually do think it's possible for us to think about the long-term. i think it's possible to do it in awake to our daily work. for example, we recently passed pdm. when i would love to see is what is the research telling us about what are the measures and metrics in pdm are the most effective there's a list of like 50 different things you get developers to sort of comply with pdm. which commendations of them are the most impactful spirit because as a planning commission, those measures are the ones that we agitate for and those conditions of approval for projects and we set a standard for ourselves could. >> i'm so sorry. those become
12:08 pm
conditions of approval for projects and then we said set a standard for so in every project that becomes the thing we start asking for. a great example that today even be-pdm is commissioner richards will agitate for additional car share spaces. that's great. i agree with that. i like it but what does the research tell us about additional car share spaces actually helping to shift mode share it's a nice thing to happen would great to note it actually helps the situation so we can know if that's the thing we should be pushing for with every project. so, that's an example of how my thinking had shifted on what i can accomplish by agitating for 14 people reading each other's air for two hours and sitting up. that sort of one thing. i think in addition to sort of things like that which i hope will come as a part of asking the
12:09 pm
public what are their thoughts, i think that we can organize our future conversations by first planning for the growth we already know is happening. i think, you know, talk about pdm and how can we organize our thinking about what is the most effective parts about pdm is great also talking about other things related to pdm. for example, parking i know mta has a whole sort of staff that thinks about parking. well, what can we inform the planning department and planning commission about that because the project large and small, we are eliminating parking in our way of getting to that will share shift but i want to know, is that effective or are we just making people lives harder
12:10 pm
setting ourselves up to get jo that more? i would like to know that. i think planning is on the part of the conversation we have about planning for the growth withers change the retirement can see the future but it's fuzzy and we don't know exactly what's going to happen. director borden made a great point bringing up collaborating with the new economy and convenient services. i think that's great. i think we should do it. i think we should be talking about what parts of our physical infrastructure can change to make that it seems like a permanent lifestyle shift work within our city. i also think we need to be careful about being too specific about those types of services because many of the ones the name that came up those companies are profitable and may not be around when the funding environment changes. they're not making any money right now. there just supported by their current funding environment. we need to make sure that we are both taking what is permanent about the change in separating it from what is transitional transitory. i think that is
12:11 pm
something we can continue to have a conversation about personally, maybe people don't agree, think having of us appears during those thoughts in person boxes get there rather than going between commissions. that's just what i believe. then, i think there's a whole other conversation and part of that last thing i would say is, in keeping with the growth we can see, there is collaboration with the data we can get right from other services or other data teams wrestle think there's some blue sky thinking were going to have to do to then promote the change we want. for example, going back to parking. i do believe-i want the data on it-i do believe reducing parking i think we've seen research on it does shift mode share because reducing parking makes it harder to other car people find other ways to get around. that
12:12 pm
also brings up all other thing about what do we do once that becomes a permanent change, and it's not transitory anymore, that sort of a shift people made they figured out how to get around, what do we do with the parking that we have right now? with the adaptive reuse for street parking for underground parking, for on ground parking that we've approved in various buildings what we need to do with planning code and building go to make it easier to adaptive reuse? parking is just one example that. i think if i had to those were three conversations i think it happened simultaneously and i hope that what will happen is the public can be guided to have a conversation with that structure so it's not just what do you think that's really challenging for people. it is what do you think in these three different buckets would you like to know now that you can be confident and comfortable that change is coming within your neighborhood
12:13 pm
? what you think about how are we planning around the things you already know about the buildings you see coming up how are we planning for how you're going to get around that change happens in the near-term and long-term, the sky, would you think we should be doing? i think will get much more helpful feedback in that way. i have a lot more i didn't get back to my original concepts of us sitting around today i have a lot more specific asks. the one, five, 10 year plan for mta growth strategy given lines and whatnot. i think might be helpful for me to give that to staff and see start getting those maps and checklists and different things i'm asking for i know you guys can put together. and sort of leave it with the big thinking like that. i am hoping i'll asked the question of the staff. so, what is the plan for the public process? when are you going to actually start scheduling
12:14 pm
charrettes and things like that spirit went you think it would be helpful to have commissioners and directors come back with more feedback? >> sure. thank you. i really appreciate the comments about structuring our thinking and hoping to find the right balance between what people's existing realities are and how we start to engage in conversation about the long-term. so, for the public process we hope to go out for our reach in early september the september timeframe. so, we would have a series of open house sessions with activities that are providing some level of background for the public. again, what's happening on the ground today. what do people think about the future. what do they think about the overall goals and framework that we talked about for this overall
12:15 pm
effort? then, start to do so they work to understand what are people's existing experiences, understand the demographics we are reaching were not reaching. someone made a comment earlier about equity and what is that definition of equity really understanding that is going to be very important for helping a shape our thinking as well. we would do a couple of rounds of outreach. the first is much more to understand as the public want to participate knowing that this is our overarching structure for the process. it's going to be over a couple years. i walked through each of the different plans and projects to example being the transportation element and mobile studies, and those will also have associated outreach but for the overall vision that is one we are we really need to engage as you said the public, in blue sky thinking and so we would have a series of stakeholder meetings to inform how we structure the conversation and go out to the public, collective community groups and partnerships and so we would have several rounds to
12:16 pm
do that. i would also informed as gil mentioned, i think about how we structure the scenarios. so, what different types of scenarios with informed those conversations as well and to also incorporate people who are maybe not in the details of when you sent transportation but as folks mention, folks representing the new economy, folks representing technology, folks representing community organizations. so we are not just hearing our own selves talk about this because we spent a lot of time in this work and in this world but were actually hearing new voices to the conversation. that we will challenge our thinking in different ways. so i hope that gives some flavoring outline of what we would do. be dick i just jump in on that. i think the basic structure of the public outreach overall correct me if i'm wrong, but follows more here's what were thinking here's what existing conditions are and what you think and in
12:17 pm
january, we start more intensively with a scenario planning. so it may be a good thing for us to check in back with maybe individual commissions late this year after we hear the results of the fall sessions and then maybe a joint session in the spring or early summer next year to hear about the results of the scenario planning exercises. i'm thinking out loud, but the point is the fall is more about here is where current thinking here's what the current conditions are. what do you think? then we get into more of the nuts and bolts of the visioning in january. >> assad asking for the other joint hearings in jan. that's what you are saying. >>[laughing] >> put on the events calendar now. because the calendar is so full anyway. >> yes, thank you so much. we'll be happy to be here think for agitating for this meeting. i have three awfully quick points. one, has to do with our
12:18 pm
[inaudible] and i am wondering i know those are great deal of thought and effort put into the r-h ran around the smart city challenge. i'm wondering if any of those effect on what is applicable here or useful. you don't have to answer that now but it seems like something to think about considering how big and effort went into it and the idea of getting activating different parts of the community and neighborhoods into thinking long-term and into the future but how we can leverage all the great technology and minds we have any yet. that's just a quick thought on public outreach. my second point has to do with accessibility. more specifically for people with disabilities in our community. specifically, looking towards the new technology that we are seeing. those both in respect to transportation but other things as well. as many of you know, it's very challenging
12:19 pm
legally is very challenging. sometimes when new technologies and industries emerge to get them to comply with accessibility laws and to make sure they understand that people would disabilities need access as well. we are experiencing is really heavily in most apparently with the pnc in our community we want to encourage innovation and forward thinking about a transportation but we want to make sure the communities that are necessarily going to be very present community outreach events that they're taking care of your when we put in car share spots the crusher companies were contracting have successful vehicles so people with wheelchairs can access those good otherwise, a lot of those people are forced into making position of owning private vehicle and put the stress on our system. i know there's lots of jurisdictional challenges with this. we're seeing that now with [inaudible] som hoping to get it is powerful commissions and agencies and the wonderful city staff we have, we can really
12:20 pm
focus on getting some equitable legislation with respect to access. so my final point is a shadow to the south beach committed summary said on the public record was not a community and that's my committed it such an active community and i love it but it's a wonderful place and a good example where transportation was putting totally earlier in a different phase of the community naturally developed into a very full active community would also suggest rotation. that's my final point and thanks again. >> thank you. commissioner richards >> thank you. i also was hankering for this joint commission hearing and backing up commissioner johnson because one of the things were making decisions on every week really affect everybody's everyday lives. now and in the future could i mentioned last week context could i took a look at the work context and i put it into i guess what were talking about today in terms of planning could context for decisions have to scenario
12:21 pm
planning which it looks like the contractor do and have done. i really love to see the next hearing with the scenarios actually are. i'm sitting up your thinking, be without the scenario plan if you got 50 years it needs to include deliveries by air but by vehicle. i really want to see with those look like at a high level. capacity planning which is where we are today and will get from the citizens every week especially in the eastern neighborhoods, i can't get to get the crowded. i get run over by these cars. more cars on the road. now i'm in the future and i'd love to see from a capacity planning point of view in case reports maybe i'm asking for too much here-we always get this project is served by these temp different lines within a quarter market if we know there's going to be additional lines to contemplate or added that would be helpful for us to also understand because were making decisions with more context around where things are don't get were putting this is can equate a problem or not?
12:22 pm
the other thing i think were not doing a good job his integration plans and integration planning, to me, is jobs, housing, business population transportation linkage. so, how does this integrate? we talked about the mission into changes in looks great for the riders for some people and cars. i do tweet once where i got stuck in traffic jam on shotwell street because i could not turn and not knowing where i was going and actually went out to look at project site in bernal. when i'm hearing from people are business owners on mission street is my business is down. did you take that into consideration the impact in business would be in terms of the mode-modes of getting to my business i can does this in san mateo. he and his wife come up for dinner on mission street by the goods and services on mission is to get a went to the dentist last week and he says i thought building there because it's such a hassle. easily
12:23 pm
other kind of integration testing when he took hold ourselves accountable for. the other one is also business and i know there has been meetings with the small business commission. if you have goods and services within walking distances, as vice director brinkman been said, you never need to get into a car. however the retail environment is changing specially my neighborhood. it businesses holding right and left are we apprentice really hot. web services are things i can't get raised will go and buy stuff are my office did not go to office depot south of market rent that it delivered by google or whatever it is. that's also i think another thing we need to look at. we are probably 50,000 ft.2 of retail space vacant my neighborhood alone. if unable to fill that up and consent of good variety of businesses and
12:24 pm
goods and services are would never want to go to office. it's not particularly enjoyable expected i love to by mike l paper in the neighborhood. the other one is contingency planning. i'm not sure i heard a lot about what we're doing around there. i know mr. kelly said were doing ranging forecast, but i'd love to understand if we look back and causally get as commissioner moore said complaints about the eastern neighborhood. we see more of a linear growth in eastern neighborhood over 25 years. we got a significant amount of growth in asia could not sure we did a lot of contingency planning around what if the worst-case scenario, base case scenario and almost correct but we have disclosed any years. what would we do i sat with the potrero votes" in the mayor's office around having interim shuttles line 11 or something like a like but synthetic from potrero down to mission bay i think those are the kinds of things that would engender trust in the public and the people have faith in this process if we knew and were to say, if this certain milestone gets met then
12:25 pm
this is what were going to do. but, here's what would you do and work in a plow forward as can be advised that i do think is what people want to hear. people want to it we do have some type of planning process that does trip the red light goes on blinking when we see things not going exactly as we thought. the other thing i would like to see our, in terms of interim policies that we have in the and use, there are things we are doing that sometimes i get troubled every week especially on parking. we have lots of large project authorization special user neighborhood resident 300 unit we up to 70 parking spaces and i kind of go, heck, were inducing demand and i know families need cars and i know we do it by number of bedrooms but we are is the data to tell
12:26 pm
us that's actually what we need? where are we going? as commissioner johnson said to do families take rideshare do they have other modes of transportation's. what is the neighborhood i don't understand. i think beating that drum quite a bit. then this car ownership and car use. i say, give me the data on the census tract with her asking for additional parking we have these what i think are excessive amounts of parking spaces did you see the ownership rate is lower than the spaces you're trying to provide for the number of units. but the heck is going on. when you talk to developers they say well people want driving there just storing their cars. we've have car storage. persist parking. only been up to napa for when choosing once the market you get the stories how much of that soap is real and what do we believe? that also would help me make better decisions and loading an unlooked the sleep we get joint policy with that project 7:1 currently on the drawing board where in a major intersection
12:27 pm
going onto the bay bridge on harrison street >> 390 >> 3 91st st. they have the loading on the outside of the building where you can have your uber drop-off and your people moving in and out of the building with their couches and furniture and boxes. right in the lane predisposed to be loading and unloading we have drop-off talk about living an entire apartment. policy were trying to get to somewhat is but the loading on the inside of the building. these are policy directions i think we want to get to. what is loading on the outside of that building to circulation we don't know but were
12:28 pm
kind of guessing time to ask that works and can wear using standards like u-haul van back into a one-bedroom apartment. certain people i dimensions. actually trying to get some rid of putting spaces and have intro voting that i think would help the situation. i'm not sure because i don't have data. it's all more gut feeling anecdotal. the other one i think is a lot of physical constraints around actual print circulation at we put the driveway? what does it do-would visit you for the rest of the ecosystem? some of the things i worry about. i would like to see bands use decisions with transportation policy driving where we want to go. if we would have a target of this amount of cars this amount walked disco land use decisions there to incense and entice people to do that rather than to a finger in one. we've got a letter from market octavia asking for pocket reductions in the public which were potentially the zoning high. they say they want less cars that. those are the kind of things that i think we should listen to to see this cac is doing an analysis on should be lowered in our parking required.
12:29 pm
i think whatever we do with the decisions we make i'd like to understand the impact of them on where we want to go. thanks. >> commissioner hillis >> thank you for this incredible opportunity. really really complex your forward thinking commissioner johnson and i am willing to get together as often as you folks can tolerate us. >>[laughing]. i know you're all an inspiration at your service and commitment to the city is exceptional. i for one am deeply grateful for all the work that you do all the long hours. when we have our long meetings, you keep me going because i understand you're doing this every week and it certainly something to admire and appreciate. thank you all for your service. i know that i, for one, would be really excited to meet with you whenever you make the imitation could even if you'd like to get together for lunch and debate helmet, commissioner, or
12:30 pm
anything else, i would please reach out to me and let's go have a beer. but to talk about all the stock. i do speak a bit of acronym so, i understand things like pdm and pdr. i think that we can certainly make our conversations more accessible when we try to spell these words out so that the viewing public can get a good understanding of what we are talking about. i know the transportation demand management is what you mean and i think that it's reasons like that that we need to having these conversations all the time to inform one another what we're doing with pdr. and what have you. looking forward to learning all that you're dealing with and thinking about particularly being influenced and inspired by sp-375 and plan bay area and wonderful efforts to get planning and transportation together i could not be more excited. the thing
12:31 pm
i'm most excited to talk about and to share in this train of thought here is the concept of equity. thinking about how our city stays accessible for everyone who wants to be here. i come up for one, cannot here in the 70s who my father brought us a family of six. is gone on to have children could i've got something like five or six nieces and nephews just on my side. my parents have since retired. i'm the last-i'm the only person in my family that can afford to live here in san francisco. a lot of it has to do with the fact that by waiting i have chose the children because we are confident we would be forced out. so, i would encourage all of our decisions and all of our thinking to be built around how are we going to make it so that our family members, but just whatever business smashing and whatever is happening in the economy can stay here, but own
12:32 pm
family members want to be a good soul i don't have to own a car is a riesling had to buy a car a couple years ago to take care of my family. and have them here.) so we can all be together and have less dependency on a car. i don't think that any must have a vision of what did you say director antonini? we don't have a vision of everyone not having a copy i think were trying to do is make our streets accessible for everyone whether you have a car or bicycle would depend on the bus or what have you. in that way, when we achieve a city that's more equitable and inclusive, we certainly become more sustainable as director richards was talking about hoping to aspire to one that's more sustainable and one of course economically thriving. one of the wonderful things i love to hear i love it when director ryan talks because he reminds me of one of my uncles because we both hail from
12:33 pm
detroit. that's a city that has gone the wrong way with respect to the dispensing back now i'm proud to say-but went the wrong direction and it's a very affordable to live in detroit but economy is terrible. i know you folks are walking this balance act and i admire you for it and am grateful the work you do. but the capitalist economy and the free market doesn't thrive on equity doesn't want equity serves the judges and the bottom line is not equity driven. it's about my kids getting the best return on your investment. so, your job, i think i like to help with that job, is to as a government agency government body, is to do what we can to actually put that lens of equity onto this free market and make sure our city stays inclusive and the one that we all grew up in and love and cherish and yes, we would love to see lowrise developments and
12:34 pm
be more paris like if you will but the dirty secret about paris it's bring this suburbs the people that can afford downtown where they work have been forced to live and it saturated with traffic on the outside and there's choking their economy and environment is getting worse and worse all the time. there are obviously social ills that come with that that we are seeing play out. so, this is all terrifically huge conversation and we certainly see at least i see, my role as a director on this body, to make sure we are looking at transportation to achieve a balance of equitable city that's also economically thriving and also environmentally sustainable and all the decisions you make help you think about that. the one
12:35 pm
thing i'm eager to talk more about if we were to meet again and over within just a beer, i would like to talk about what kind of decisions are we making on a regular basis project by project and are we orientating the project to transit? we orientated to the pedestrian are we making sure that people who really do need a car have access to one because we try. my wife and i tried to give up a copy of we are spending $100 every week renting a car from one of the peer to peer networks. it wasn't working out your we were spending more money than we would take root after just own a car. we've got a ways to go. i'm confident we can do it with enough passion and commitment will have clearly demonstrated in your shirt on copper we can get there so looking forward to all these conversations going for. >> that. commissioner wu >> i just want to add a few thoughts since we want to get out of your time for lunch. they can begin to for everyone for your comments and for bringing us together. i have one specifically on outreach. i think his dedication to equity is really exciting to see it
12:36 pm
named as a goal and an integral part of our work. i think outreach and equity is quite difficult actually if you ask people what do you think equity, is so vague it so broad it's truly hard. for me, it is about what our people daily lives like in san francisco we talked a bit about that today. for low income people in san francisco the words they go every day? two they need to go to take their kids to school? two they need to get groceries and is the transit project or office or residential project getting bills making their lives easier or harder? i think those are the kinds of questions we can ask people to really unearth what they're doing lives in san francisco are. and how to make it easier for them. my second request is
12:37 pm
more technical one. i have been watching the transit equity baseline from afar. i think there's some really great work that's been done already. the analysis and strong but how do we integrate that analysis and decision-making projects, both for both the mta board and for ourselves. thanks. >> thank you for this meeting and, present and this is greg i was told some of the new having drumming and they were excited. asked how long do we have that as far as i know is the first time it's been done for some time. they thought it was a great idea. just a couple quick things. i think the outreach is one be one of the most important pieces. the joint outreach because i can say to director ramos is going as a parent i found having children is not really an economically rational decision >>[laughing] at this point. at this point i'm committed so a lot of decisions for me revolve around expense time and convenience and what can work. one of the things i do know is for working parents and for small business owners, because if that to run
12:38 pm
the shop, it can be hard to get to some meetings remain just a on top of what's going on. one of the things to chairman nolan's point comparing what new york is and what we do here in outreach i think would be nice know a little bit about mta has done that's worked with the planning commission has done that's what it may be compare notes on that. i know the mta has a survey right now to talk about what's going on and how people want to do their outreach. i think that's a great thing and maybe a little bit more of that. the other thing is, i think as we move forward with this is important to think a little bit about a downturn scenario. we've had a nice run. great funding environment. it's not that go on forever. i do know there's going to be next year or next two years that we have some kind of slowdown. were moderation but either way i feel like it's important the that in mind as were throwing out different scenarios. thank
12:39 pm
you again >> inky. any other comments? let me wrap up if that's all right. again, thanks staff in both directors for helping us close this meeting in august the everyone up here. i think is a great opportunity for us to think as futurists and overstaffed that's largely what you do but it's a great opportunity here is commissioner moore said i think this is not a hope this is not the first or last of minutes but the first of many in 50 years could to your most comment about downturn, probably big cities like new york, chicago, while they had 100 year advantage of building up transit they probably didn't with their foot off the gas pedal even during economic downturns and kept on which projects going on. which leads me do some discussion staff hear about long-range planning and while we have all these different agencies and departments and silos which we are good at the ability to
12:40 pm
think out-of-the-box and long-range and not get tied down into somebody does i think is important. so, enjoyed all the comments. obviously they're all right on. this is a broader first big wide scope meeting but hopefully the next couple meetings we can narrow it down to some tasks in the fall. again, appreciate everyone for coming and thank you for the public for making comments. >> is there anything else on the agenda one >> i think the planning commission is providing once. right. if there's nothing else the meeting is adjourned. thank you. >>[gavel] >>[adjournment] >> good morning everyone. good
12:41 pm
morning. amanda-regional initiative for the gen. service administration pursue the claim region and of your master of ceremonies today. i do the short straw and jake to the longshot. congratulations, jay. welcome to the united nations gaza. on to gsa regional headquarters and the physical home of super public. today, we celebrate the official launch of super public. the nation's first collaborative workspace to host city state and federal policymakers under one roof. the innovation lab is running in collaboration with san francisco mayor's office of civic innovation by the city intimate foundation and the gen. services administration will solve common problems that affect all levels of government. uc berkeley's
12:42 pm
center for design research at stanford university and mit media lab have also partnered with super public. super public will provide space. program convened summit, roundtables, and training programs to build capacity so that all partners in the lab can maximize time and impact. by working in an open innovation environment, super public intends to create extorted exportable models and solutions facing governments throughout the nation. the city of san francisco and city intimate into gsa and other superpower concept, was an immediate, yes. each level of government is really reinventing the wheel around a common problems. the silo nature of government has stymied the public sector from adopting innovative tech, and business models, and the sharing of best practices. so our hope that super public will break down some of the silos and allow us to share common solutions across government at
12:43 pm
the city state and federal level. not only will gsa provide a physical space which we had quite a bit of, but we will also provide some expertise in certain areas. gsa is a leader in procurement and also digital services in our digital consultancy etf's house just down the hall. minute you walk by their offices. just today. we've seen a significant amount of success at the federal level addressing the german challenges and changing the way government bills and buys technology. etf and parent organization the technology to information service can bring these past successes past and failures to the conversation. so, without further ado, we are very excited to commemorate the launch of super public and were honored to have with us another special guest. from you hear from the harsh reality recognizer speakers from today's event. gsa administrator denise turner
12:44 pm
ross, mayor of the city of san francisco and family. san francisco district 2 supervisor mark farrell. executive director of the city intimate foundation cameron sadik, and the city administrator naomi i can name is not on your last name? kelly. thank you. in addition to our speakers today i like to recognizer panelists discussing women and government and technology early 21st-century government. gsa initiated denise ross we joined by codirector of the transportation sustainably resource center at uc berkeley. atf deputy executive director hillary hartley and city oakland chief resiliency officer karen jane. now my pleasure to introduce the speaker per today's event. i bus and head of gsa this denise turner ross. ms. ross is the 21st senate confirm administrative and general furnaces ministration brother
12:45 pm
18 years of public service she's old there is a leadership positions in washington dc and greensboro north carolina the focus on driving economic impact in ms. state of change. it is a gentleman, denise ross. >>[applause] >> thank you very much into. thank you all for being here at gsa in this beautiful old building. i think when we had the chance to actually renovate the space we were very fortunate and what a great day to see how far it's come. i'm not sure that when we were renovating the space just a few years ago that we had this opportunity and vision in mind but indeed, here we are today and it's just wonderful. mayor lee thank you for having us in your subject is a beautiful subject is been here all week and it's been a wonderful time. thank you for your partnership always. i think using the mayor has been called on frequented by the administration and it's because we like to go to leaders sought. it's not been by
12:46 pm
accident you've seen us here working with the mayor quite often. as administrative gsa, i have the pleasure of working with people are very committed to a really having a joint effort when they come to any community could gsa manages over three 75,000,000 ft.2 of space. we manage over $50 with spending occurs through the federal government and has been a straighter and you pointed out, i do have a deep deep background in city administration as well as in other capacities that i care a lot about how we are partnering with community could because when i know him and were working together both at city state and federal level, as well as with the private sector and public sector, the we are at our best and that's when we achieve our best. so when i came in as administrator i prioritize how do we use our physical footprint on knowledge, our access all resources to partner with these partners. as well as to partner with the federal agencies of
12:47 pm
course. an idea is for us to be able to bring the best foot forward in any place were entered weaver wants to never call her economic initiative which is really about how do we take a footprint and look for opportunities with communities. i think this is a great example of that. you are aware is into pointed out of our 18 f and pts and the work they been doing in digital services and current technology in bringing together that effort to our efforts and the federal government and it's been really exciting. so when asked about what is super public meeting for gsa why are we partnering in what respect to get out of this? i spoke to see us be able to continue to partner with other communities did for me this is just the start. to start an example and a strong example of what it means for how we can really
12:48 pm
leverage the space we are managing. this space the resources, the people be accessed. that's what is happening here. that is what were all part of today. so this is just a really exciting time for us throughout gsa not just the technology space but for all this that are here because were burning at the same time and will take these learning and share with other communities as well. so, mayor thank you again for coming here. thank you and your team for having the vision as well as city innovates. i've just been excited getting to know the work that you're doing and vision you have not just your locally but international. what a wonderful thing. so thank you for coming here and thank you for choosing this partnership and thank you for having the vision. >>[applause] >> thank you, denise. our next speaker has incredibly strong track record of driving collaborative partnerships in the first mayor in the nation to create an innovation office and city governments. please, welcome mayor ed lee. >>[applause] >> thank you into for that introduction. gsa of instead of ross, thank you for being here. this is one my favorite buildings outside of city hall.
12:49 pm
it shouldn't surprise you that we share the same architect and it's one of the few buildings like my office that still has curbed the wars. so there's a lot of history that we share but being here in gsa again, connotes a lot of good memories. certainly, it harkens back to city administrator these two director of purchasing a less political position in the city there i had fun. i truly had fun when i was director purchasing, spending the public's money about $1 billion a year buying things but trying to do it smartly and trying to incur local jobs, small businesses, get them involved in the economy of our city. and, even as mayor, we are still making sure were trying to do the right thing as all of our governments are. this idea of super public is exciting because in a few years, you're
12:50 pm
going to see an absolute necessity for this to happen. while it seems volunteer and innovative to do it now were actually creating the conditions the private sector, for the public sector, or academia, for those in government want to innovate, were trying to equate those conditions now so it has a lot more opportunity to be successful. as a city of innovation, i want to say that were already working not just as a city but is the region, i'm already deep conversations with mayor schaaf and mayor ricardo with our supervisors, in san mateo county about regional issues and making sure were paying attention, more than just what the part on has for the immediate future. more about our challenges and how we can really work outside of our sideload cities and counties and into arena where we can really and truly invite the
12:51 pm
private sector to work with us. the academia sector and our innovative arms. it's no surprise that gsa is a partner because it's fast becoming the most innovative arm of the federal government i've ever seen hit their really pushing it well ahead and they're challenging us to be a great partner and we want to be. because we have a lot of things that could withhold benefits to our public if we didn't start working cooperatively. we just are thinking outside of those silos that and you mentioned that we all know is a very fact that prevents us from doing better. and i say that we started this over a year and a half ago as well thinking that to be smarter city, not just an transportation but everything else that we do but transportation is a great example to start out with because if were not thinking
12:52 pm
more :-), not thinking more collaboratively and innovatively, beyond the cities and into a regional if not a state and federal approach, were going to fail. whether it's bikes, whether it's public transportation, whether it's getting less cars have thinking about automated vehicles and how to make them safer, how to use them how to use automation and delivery of goods and products, were going to fill it we don't innovate now and have that spirit. that's why i'm excited about joining our gsa partners and our city administrator, our members of our board of supervisors, and our innovation arm of the city working with the other innovation arms of federal government and state government. this is more than exciting. as i suggest to you super public is going to have to be a necessity because as you look around, not just united states, that's starting to happen in new york and los angeles and allow places, you look at what international cities are already doing. you don't have to look-has, by the way, happy the steel date those of you who have french foundations. paris story got a
12:53 pm
super public that we are studying and looking at as a model. toronto, under the great international city. other international cities have already figured out that indo global competition that we are engaged in, and we must recognize that, that is those regions that recognize how collaboration and innovation is going to help their cities become that much more successful in a global competition. when not opting out of anything were opting in to a global setting and making sure we are ready to do that even better. so, i am excited as you can probably tell because i didn't, i visited the offices this year and the space that were talking about and i know into says we have not got the furniture yet. but, i will tell you, you got the calendar
12:54 pm
ready. furniture comes after the talent arrives. i think that talent is here the dedication the commitment is here and i will tell you, i have never stopped trying to figure out how to decrease red tape. how to really convince our public who has to pay a lot of our taxes to say, your money is going into a smarter collaboration that we can be more transparent and telling them how we are cutting red tape. how small businesses can have a federal partner, a star partner, a local partner that says you're going to have a lot less red tape to be more successful. i have never stopped and effort in making sure that our city is talking with all our federal partners to it smarter and we better get how i say procurement officer as our city administrator is, to suggest that we can buy things and still have it at a less expensive price but get
12:55 pm
payments to our local small business faster so that we can really have a foundation for good employment in the long run. how we can tackle transportation, tackle homelessness, tackle poverty in ways which we never talked about before. yes we've got good ideas in san francisco but the navigation centers, like a cherry, like car sharing. how can we make this a regional thing and academia, with its berkeley mit, stanford were all part of this effort, going to contribute to that because they know that we've got the document we got to talk the man could we do to make sure our models
12:56 pm
are examples of things we can really share with people, and we've got to prove that we can do it better than the last generated so, excited about this. i'm excited about super public, and i know just in the few years is quick to be an absolute necessity for the global competition and we are helping our country by doing this. we are hoping much of the federal people be better quit estate people be better on local people be better, but as a community of people interested in being smarter about what were doing we hopefully will the public was a breathing that much deeper committed to using your dollars smarter to making sure we do things in language data can really drive and help us. this is what i think super public is and i want to just say, ken, thank you to organizations like the innovate fund and our innovation civic innovation leaders, i did sector comedies like at&t stepping up with berkeley folks and others to really say we can do this even better. but we've got to think regionally now. we can just think is that independent circuit either to make sure talking with sam ricardo and their interest in san jose.
12:57 pm
-mayor schaaf people in oakland and san mateo because our challenges are no longer just within our region with its housing, dissertation, with there's even a simple idea of procuring. we've got to do it smarter and better in this consistently foundation. it's exciting to be in a room full of innovators to do this. thank you very much. >>[applause] >> thank you mayor lea. our next speaker is the event supervisor mark farrell. his work to communities which the digital divide. please, welcome supervisor farrell >> >>[applause] >> thanks everyone could post about is a tall our gsa partners, the winners always like this in san francisco. you come out for entire week. so please come out more often. i'm truly excited to be here today. from my perspective, super public is the future. it is what we need to be doing across all every single city in the united states. when we think about san francisco as much as
12:58 pm
we have a booming economy we have issues as cities have all the time. whether it is mayor lea mentioned, the housing crisis, we have transportation issues, but they're not singled out for steve and cities across the united states are facing these issues. with the homelessness were bridging the digital divide these are issues we need to work in san francisco that matter to our residents. doing it alone in the government is something that is not going to be part of the future could need to partner with a private sector. need to partner with academia specialist visit here in san francisco today the innovation capital of the world and thank you to all our private sector partners will contribute to make this happen today. partnering with you partnering with academic, this is the future. we need to do it
12:59 pm
together because i will tell you, we cannot do it alone and several also city hall. we certainly cannot do it set up chambers of the board of supervisors we need to do it together as partners. binders and with the federal government or state government together we can do it. we also need our private sector. we need academia to be able to do it together. so i'm incredibly excited to be part of this. take you to all the people who contributed to it. congratulations to all the founding members. i know this is a long time in the making. the most excited about, is not just today but the future. this about our children and making sure as we think about problems as my son jack sits over there, honest will, this generation when we tackle problems not just san francisco problems the regional problems and were not tackling them the city government were tapping together with private sector with academia and that the wording of the best solution yet so congratulations to everyone and thank you i just can't wait for the future here together. thank you. >>[applause]
1:00 pm

1:19 pm
was asked to do is water system improvement program and one thing i looked at is about the 4.8 billion dollars wurthd of
1:20 pm
work and a lot of the work was regional. we looked at how can we make sure that we provide opportunities for san franciscan's and people in the region and so we looked at ways we can expand our local san francisco lb program. so, we thought about it and worked with general manager at the time to form an advizry committee to talk about how to include local businesses in the region. >> i was on the first committee back about 10 years ago and the job changed over time. in the beginning, we just wanted people to know about it. we wanted to attract contractors to come into the system which is a bidding system and bid on some of these projects. our second job was to help the
1:21 pm
sfpuc to try to make themselves more user frndly. >> i like that they go out of their way, have contractors trying to teach and outreach to small businesses and lots of creative ways. help the community as well. there is so much infrastructure going on and repair, new construction that i think is helping to get construction back on its feet. >> my faiv rlt part of the committee has been that we have played a opportunity for many small businesses. [inaudible] women owned business to come in and [inaudible] sfpuc. it is a great opportunity because some are so small they have been able to grow their companies and move up and bid other projects with the sfpuc.
1:22 pm
>> everyone i was talking about with any contractor [inaudible] and super markets and things like that and i realize the transition was on the sfpuc. he got that first job and knows about the paperwork qu schedule and still works on this type of job, but he works with general contractors that also did other things. pretty soon it is like he did that one and that one. it completely changed his business. >> my name is nancy [inaudible] the office manager and bid coordinator for [inaudible] construction. worked on 10 plus puc, lbe contracts. today we are doing site maintenance
1:23 pm
on the [inaudible] chr site and currently the gentlemen behind me are working on every moving and basic specs of plants. in order to be success you need to work hard, bid low and keep a look at the sfpuc website for future bidding opportunity. >> this is a successful program because it provides opportunities to regional communities that might not have opportunities to work for large scale projects. the sfpuc is a fortunate agency we have a lot of capital program that span over 7 counties who also to see how some businesses like [inaudible] and bio mass started as small micro businesses grow and expand and stay in the program and work on several projects before they
1:24 pm
graduate from the program. that is what warms my heart. >> my name is college willkerson, the principle for bio mass. bio mass has been in business since 2006. 3 partners. small businesses fill a niche but apply and being a part of the program helped us be more visible and show the city and county of san francisco we can also perform services. >> this program had tremendous impact to the region. in fact, the time we rolled the program out was during the recession. this has h a major positive impact and certified over 150 firms in the rejen and collectively awarded $50 million in contracts, and because of the lbe
1:25 pm
certification it open many opportunities to work with sfpuc. and, i significantly helped the business. it is one of the major contributors to our success.
1:26 pm
>> 7 and a half million renovation is part of the clean and safe neighbor's park fund which was on the ballot four years ago and look at how that public investment has transformed our neighborhood. >> the playground is unique in that it serves a number of age groups, unlike many of the other properties, it serves small children with the children's play grounds and clubhouses that has basketball courts, it has an outdoor soccer field and so there were
1:27 pm
a lot of people that came to the table that had their wish list and we did our best to make sure that we kind of divided up spaces and made sure that we kept the old features of the playground but we were able to enhance all of those features. >> the playground and the soccer field and the tennis fields and it is such a key part of this neighborhood. >> we want kids to be here. we want families to be here and we want people to have athletic opportunities. >> we are given a real responsibility to insure that
1:28 pm
the public's money is used appropriately and that something really special comes of these projects. we generally have about an opportunity every 50 years to redo these spaces. and it is really, really rewarding to see children and families benefit, you know, from the change of culture, at each one of these properties >> and as a result of, what you see behind us, more kids are playing on our soccer fields than ever before. we have more girls playing sports than we have ever had before. [ applause ] fp >> and we are sending a strong message that san francisco families are welcome and we want you to stay. >> this park is open.
