report. however in 2013 and 2014 annual report. currently based off our review, the cbd is ahead of their spend down timeline from last year. findings, the cdb met all the requirements except to the management agreement with the city and state code. they should include their spend down plan in the future annual reports. we'll work with them to ensure that is made more clear. they have made significant progress in the carry over from last year. in conclusion, they performed well in their service plan and included public activation events and stakeholders with the new implementation of the project in 14-15. you will start to see the fruition outside with the summer concert series and made active the
7:57 am
board of directors and subcommittees. if you have no questions on the benchmark, don will present the programmatic on the cdb. >> good morning, chair peskin and president breed. i'm here to go over the fy 16, it's hard to go back in my mine, but we will go over it. let's see. it's my part. there we go. sorry. i seem to be at the end of his presentation. >> it's all good.
7:58 am
the committees that we have included are our executive committee, finance committee, services committee, capital improvements and planning committee external affairs and this is important for the arts groups in the area. we have worked with the service provider and working with the task force, oewd, programs that have started m the this neighborhood. we developed a close relationship with the department of recreation and parks, the arts, and travel.
7:59 am
the grant referred to was the neighborhood grant we got for the epicenter web portal that is feeding information on all the areas which is the tenderloin and the central market. we have transitioned into a program that central market is now managing. the neighborhood is obviously in transition. we expect in the next 5 years to have several new thousands of residents. the playground at the civil center plaza is being redone with a grant from ptl. the school announced they are putting a ballot for the bond measure to help with the arts. the transit is any day now as i have been told. and the civic center plan which is a plan for van ness and market. we decided with our plan that we had extra money to attend the program that we have a
8:00 am
permanent program. last summer, we e did as an experiment to the elevator in the plaza which is the entrance to the parking garage to be very scary at night for patrons and people. we put a uniformed ambassador and found that to be extremely popular. we did that for 2 months last summer and now included it a part of our work plan and now the recreation and parks department is seeing a benefit to their patrons as well. this is what i find quite interesting. in the last year, we helped get medical attention for 190 people, assisted 80 people with disorderly complaints, removed 728 needles and
8:01 am
garbage to whole mattresses and gave out directions to visitors 1600 times. here is an example of graffiti where they are trying to figure out where that is which is actually the opera house. we also clean anything in the public realm which includes bus stations. the partnership to establish has been very beneficial us. we have the art groups coming together which they said it's something that couldn't be done to bring them altogether. but when we talked about important projects, that was important. the patron experience with the parking garage. they are working on the street. also includes traffic congestion and safety where on a thursday night at the corner of
8:02 am
grove and franklin, you can see how bad it can get with the traffic. we are trying to work to maybe get signal lights and crosswalks that are safer and try to make the pedestrian experience more safe because you have the vision zero initiative as well. one thing that we've been very successful for because the seed to start in this program was in supervisor breed's district. we worked with them to get involved as the living alley for the department of planning. we have a community challenge grant again for them for $200,000 for district lighting and district improvements for that alley. we continue to give out awards for people that helped us. it's the day connect program. and holidays we had 6 in this 2015,
8:03 am
and we expanded it to 2016 to have 19 concerts over the holidays. we have summer concerts just out of this fiscal year we just started in july in the civic center plaza and started again this month. we do have some challenges still. the bill graham civic continues to be a problem. this is what was finished before. we also have a problem with the drought impacts and cleaning and regular schedule of that. the challenge is perception of safety when you are walking through the plaza at night on the way home from the ballet that you feel overwhelmed, that's what we are working on. the beautification project we are having a challenge. we can't do
8:04 am
anything on van ness because of what'sen it and working on the rest of the plaza and those streets. we are waiting to see how that plan shakes out and market street plan is also evolving. we are kind of in odd little window of time which is why we planned for the project on ivy street. which is available to us. the opportunity is coming with the public realm to help get public input into that process. i want to thank you for your time. >> thank you, don. i appreciate your work. it seems like things are going quite well through your first 10-year period. is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> mr. core gus, any final
8:05 am
words on this item? >> no, sir. >> okay, why don't we send this resolution to the full board with recommendation. that will be the order. and supervisor campos has joined us for item no. 2. mr. korg us. if you can stay for that item. >>clerk: 160422 [fire, housing, building codes - fire safety requirements for existing buildings >> supervisor campos, good morning. >>supervisor david campos: good morning, mr. chair and president breed. i understand that i will be subbing part of the
8:06 am
meeting for supervisor yee. >> welcome to the committee. that means the president has given you a vote? >> yes. >> okay. >>supervisor david campos: thank you, again, colleagues. i want to begin by thanking my incredible staff, carolyn gussen who has been relentless in doing the work on the issue of fires. we have seen too many fires in this city and too many fires in the mission community. over the past few years, hundreds of mission residents have been displaced because of fires. sadly three people have tragically died in those fires. in 2015, alone, 130 people were displaced by fires in the mission. in 2016, we have seen
8:07 am
dozens more displaced by fires including 50 people who were displaced last week because of the fire that happened on 29th street. when low income residents are displaced the result is that they are not only displaced from their home and neighborhood, but sadly from san francisco altogether because they can not afford to live in the city. the latest fire on 29th street is only the latest in a string of fires that have led to a temporary and often permanent displacement of our tennants. the legislation before you comes from actually months more than a year of work. in response to the number of fires that we had seen, more than a year ago, we created legislation that put together a task force that was basically asked how do we address the number of fires that are taking place in this neighborhood? please
8:08 am
examine all of the options that are available to this city to prevent these fires. with the task force that consisted of the three departments that are responsible for fire safety in san francisco, the san francisco fire department, the department of building inspection, the health departments. it actually included san francisco agencies like the san francisco public utilities commission to have a robust discussion. the legislation you see are the first set of recommendations from that task force, the things they prioritized where they felt they needed action from us as soon as possible. before i get into the specification of the legislation, i want to talk about the issue of sprinklers because that's another issue we put before this task force. in fact we had a hearing about the task force and
8:09 am
about what they thought about that issue. if you look at the task force report, they say it sounds like a great idea, but we need more information. with that in mind, this coming tuesday i will be formally requested that the budget and legislative analyst and i see the amazing staff, ms. campbell here from that office, that they conduct and do a report that outlines the issue of sprinklers for the city that addresses the questions that were raised by the task force. this is a complex issue with potential for unintended consequences. so we want to know a lot more data. we will ask the budget and legislative analyst to layout all the facts to offer options for the city to look at best practices in other parts of the country and how we might actually implement sprinklers here in san
8:10 am
francisco including whether or not it made sense to do a pilot and if we do a pilot, what the focus of that pilot should be. should it be for example on the most vulnerable wood frame buildings, should it focus on rent control buildings? what are the options? i'm asking to explore also the cost of this and how we can incentivize landlords to comply with this law since we know that sprinklers are costly. we also know and this was another issue discussed by the task force that there is a fear by tennants that the installation of sprinklers can be used as a tool to evict people because of the cost and repairs. we want to be careful how we address that but at the same time we want to move expeditiously. at the same time, i'm calling on the fire
8:11 am
department and department of building inspection and any other workgroup that includes tennants, boards, contracts and anyone that has anything to say and bring some recommendations to the board of supervisors. we found with the fire at gray wood, sprinklers were very effective in keeping the fire from spreading to that hotel. we know that they work. now we need to figure out how to make it work in san francisco. the legislation that's before you today, again comes out of the work of this task force. these are the specific things that it does. one, it requires that owners have common area of fire alarm systems that are inspected and tested every year. and that they provide proof of that to the fire department that
8:12 am
they in fact have done that. it also requires the fire department to maintain a website where tennants can look up their building to see whether their landlord hassen insured the fire alarm is in order. what we hear is we need to know more about our own building and code compliance for where we live. the second piece is that this legislation require a new higher standard for the alarm systems to ensure that people can hear the alarm. that's one of the many things we heard directly from some of the fire victims that they are in their unit and they did not hear the alarm go off. the standard that is included here in this legislation is so-called pillow test for audibility. it has to be loud enough so it wakes you up if you are actually sleeping. the third item is to prevent the spread of
8:13 am
fire from one attic to another. the legislation is requiring to install fire blocks installation and open accessible attics. the idea is to keep the fire from spreading from one building to another. the idea that when a fire occurs, the tennants are displaced and requires the landlord, this is important. the landlord is required to detail an action plan within 72 hours and within 30 days it is also required this plan be accessible to tennants. the information required if this plan is the time and schedule of repairs. the estimated date of reoccupation by tennants and also when tennants can get their belongings. what i have seen after the fire is really heartbreaking because there isn't a lot
8:14 am
of information that is given to the tennants by the landlord. one thing that i would add to that, something that we need to explore is adding more resources on the city side. because right now we have one individual at hsa who has the responsibility of dealing with this, amazing as this 1 person is, it's not sufficient. finally requiring to have english and spanish information to renters and the landlord responsibility to repair smoke alarms when they have been broken. we also would like, and i actually have here a set of amendments that i want to hand out to my colleagues. >> this set of amendments are as follows. these came out of discussions with tennants
8:15 am
groups. one key amendment is that dbi must inspect buildings where a fire occurred every 90 days. this will ensure the city is maintaining oversight of buildings. the perfect example and you can't make this up is the 22 and mission building where there actually a number of fires following the initial fire. making sure that dbi go out and regularly inspect the buildings is critical. and the second the department will be inspecting compliance and i know the fire department and the department of building inspection have worked this out and when landlord are meeting these requirements they are posting information in the common area of the building. i want to thank my
8:16 am
cosponsors of this legislation, supervisor kim, tang, breed, supervisor wiener. i want to thank the many people who worked with my office on this legislation and in particular deanna flores and the entire incredible team. tommy and his incredible team on the housing rights committee, and the san francisco apartment association. rosemary, vazquez and dbi by the way, played a really incredible role. we couldn't have done it without him. i want to thank chief white and olivia at the fire department. thank you for your involvement in this effort. and thank you to city attorney, judy, francesca for all the hours that went into drafting this legislation. sorry for the long
8:17 am
presentation. colleagues, thank you for your consideration. i do want to thank my other colleagues, president breed, supervisor wiener and others have also done work with supervisor kim as well on fires. this is a very important issue to all of us board of supervisors. >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you for your work and the city family for it's collective work on this item. do you want anybody from any of the departments to present, supervisor campos? >> unless they want to, i think i'm okay. >> would anybody from any of the departments like to present, if not, why don't we open up for public comment. >>supervisor london breed: i wanted to thank supervisor campos for his thoughtful piece of legislation. we know that unfortunately tragedy has struck in regards to fires throughout san francisco specifically in my district
8:18 am
we've had a number of fires where the majority of those individuals have basically left the city because they couldn't afford to find, they couldn't find another place they could actually afford to rent. that is definitely devastating. i think the combination of this legislation as well as our victim assistance fund and allowing for more people to qualify for that fund for rental assistance, are things that can be used as tools to help in this effort, but what's great about this legislation more so is the fact that this is prevention. this is going to help us put the tools in place that can make sure when residents the safety of our residents who aren't certain about the condition of their building, their
8:19 am
safety is protected and there are ways to understand, you know, if property owners are in compliance. i think that making sure that we prevent these fires from happening through the right tool is what's going to help us you know prevent these fires from happening in the first place. and also protect members of the public, and, so i'm really happy we are taking things a step further. there are definitely questionable fires that have happened in my district and i'm really concerned. but also i appreciate the fact that we have increased the number of arson investigators at the san francisco fire department, and i do want to ask a question to the author as well as possibly the
8:20 am
budget and legislative analyst, the city attorney because i want to make sure that funding is not the excuse as to why we can't implement this legislation, and i know that for example dbi has specific requirements i was wondering if it were possible especially because dbi has from my understanding a large budget, a surplus budget, and there will be cost associated with this implementation of this legislation both for dbi which i'm sure they can cover the cost, but the question i guess i have is the fire department and my concerns about the fire department's ability and based on the requirements of this legislation, is it possible that dbi could cover the expenses of what's necessary for the fire department to spend to make sure we can
8:21 am
develop the right system for tracking, we can do the right investigation on these properties to make sure people are in compliance. i wanted to make sure that funding was not an obstacle to getting this implementation implemented properly. >> campbell from the budget analyst office. we did look at this in our report. the fire department estimated for 16-17 cost for four positions cost $670,000. these cost were already in the budget order with dbi. dbi has $52,000 in their budget. >> dbi ordered this? >> that's great. perfect. there we go. never mind. it looks like we are good to go. again, supervisor campos, thank you for your leadership. this is really great legislation, and i look forward to seeing it implemented and making sure
8:22 am
and hopefully we can see the results by the decrease in the number of fires we have in our city. thank you again. >>supervisor aaron peskin: why don't we open this up for public comment. i have a number of speaker cards. please come up to testify. public speaker: good morning. it seems like this is definitely on the mind of san franciscans and evidence in the news that this is a real issue. my name is deanna flores, the organizer for casa husta. to provide the return for the right of return that exist there and being able to be
8:23 am
established we see that there is other loopholes in being able to ensure this is exercised. the recommendations that are included in this ordinance really address the ability for us to apply pressure continuously by different agencies to consistently collaborate with each other, and maintain the tennants hope alive to be able to return to the city that they have been long-term tennants and contributors of. we want to continue to avoid temporary displacement to become permanent displacements. we encourage you for passing this ordinance. >> thank you for your work. next speaker, please. public speaker: [ spanish speaker ]
8:24 am
>> >> >> good morning, interpreter. my name is liliana, i was displaced by this fire. i want to share with you what's going on with me and espe here to talk about my daughters. we are living in a home that cost
8:25 am
twice as much as the one we lived in and on a daily basis my daughters ask me when are we going back to our home. i really can't tell them anything because basically that's not a possibility. >> so i'm here in full support of this legislation because it will do two things: one, it will force the owner to get a move on basically telling us what's the timeline for our return to our house. thank you. >> sorry for what you have experienced. thank you for your translation services.
8:26 am
>> next speaker, please. public speaker: greetings, my name is brian with causes and just cause. that makes me a part of the sro collaborative. i have been previously working with several tennants at the gray wood hotel who have been historically exploited at their hotel already. i do want to give a big shout out of appreciation to dbi for staying on top of that building over the last several months. the tennants at the gray wood, there are already various people. one in particular, ms. nancy lopez, a senior citizen, 85 years old, makes about $600 a month, lost everything due to water damage
8:27 am
in her unit. the landlord in the building snots being very cooperative right now. he's trying to wash his hands of the situation. isn't communicating properly with the tennants. and this legislation is going to be entirely beneficial for the tennants. i really commend the supervisor campos for introducing it. the piece about the landlord's accountability in this is going to be critical, and also to the next step to be able to get relocation payments for fire displaced people. there is something to think about moving forward for on going legislation, things
8:28 am
that might come up later on. i'm going to stop there. thank you very much for your work. >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: hello, my name is yadira sanchez with just cause. i'm here also on the fire ordinance. it will improve and ensure consistent maintenance of fire safety systems. an is a tenant counselor the owner is responsible for maintaining the systems in an operable condition at all times. often long-term tennants are living in the most neglected buildings. the city and agencies need to make sure to enforce this legislation so the landlord can comply with the laws so
8:29 am
folks can return. families have lot everything due to these fires. what are we going to do in order to prevent another family in san francisco from losing their homes because of negligence. thank you. will >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: hi, my name is gabriela, a resident in the district and my parents own a business in the district. i'm in support of the legislation because it really emphasizes that safety should be a standard, not a question. i think after all these fires they don't only affect the families, but the communities and safety as well. i want to commend the element where language is an issue. language should never be a barrier to understanding your basic rights. i would also like to commend everyone behind the legislation and make this a
8:30 am
standard. i appreciate it. thank you. >>supervisor aaron peskin: next speaker, please. public speaker: hi, my name is alicia sandoval, a district organizer of rights committee. also born and raised in the mission district. i'm fully in support of the legislature. as a counsel or many tennants coming into our office. many questions are where am i going to be able to go back and why isn't the landlord not discussing this. they have a right to return under rent control, but again they write three letters, two letters and no communication from the landlord at all. and this is unacceptable. i feel there needs to be
8:31 am
something in place when tennants, fire victims are coming to us asking us where can i go? we did help a couple, a senior couple to get some emergency housing for a few weeks, but there is other tennants that are coming to us, fire victims telling us, i'm sleeping in the car for a month, i'm sleeping in the floor, i'm couch surfing. that's what they are telling us. we don't know what to tell them. there ought to be emergency housing. we are organizing tennants and we are visiting them at their buildings and we are seeing there is no fire alarms that are working. some rooms don't even have fire alarms. this legislation is very crucial. there are so many victims who have been
8:32 am
displaced. it's not fair. we have to act as a community, as a native from this community, i really feel, this is our familia. we are treating our familia, we really need to treat them with respect. thank you. >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you, next speaker, please.. public speaker: hello, i'm lucas from casa for just cause with the san francisco clinic. i'm here to support this legislation as well. mostly because this legislation really gives us the tools as counsel ors to go through the road blocks we see again and again. we see consistently how folks are left in limbo, not only dealing with the hardship of going through a fire but also with obstacles that limit their return
8:33 am
home. there are systems that need to be in key to show them to be able to go back. i think her testimony speaks to that. we see families and elders on a fixed income that are long-term tennants. they are being displaced again. not being able to stay there, right? so the lack of affordable housing means that these displaced families are no longer here in san francisco. they stop by our offices years later after a fire from all around the bay asking what's going on with my building, what's going on with my repairs, what's happening. they leave the city, they leave the communities and the services they had here and their homes. while we try to make information accessible to the tennants, there are delays in the system that lacks communication. tennants should be be unsure of what decisions to
8:34 am
make in their lives for their families well being. this legislation will force landlord communication and offer clear timeline so they know what's happening and they can plan their lives accordingly. i'm fully in support of this legislation and will help keep folks in san francisco. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: good morning, supervisors, my name is charlie goz from the san francisco housing association. we would also like to speak in support of the legislation. we would like to thank supervisor campos for this issue. this legislation is a result of a process that should bear legislation. the city recognizes the problem with fire safety and multifamily buildings. they can bring the task
8:35 am
force with all stakeholders with the city departments and this is the result of that legislation. the legislation does a lot for improving physical fire safety and also improving communication between the tenant and landlord after the fire. we feel it's important and will make tennants feel better after their building has burned. right now we are working with 87th and dolores that happened 5 years ago. it seems to be helping. we are very much in support of this ordinance. we would like to request one amendment and we apologize after this task force. but the legislation has a trigger for if you pull a permit of $50,000 or more to install a fire safety block, we would like to ask for an exemption for mandatory seismic retrofit work. those
8:36 am
are between $150-200,000. if you are pulling a mandatory seismic work that you do not demand that fire block. it makes sense not to volunteer that program. thank you and we would like to have you move this forward today. thank you. >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you. is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. by the way, while i have dbi sitting in the audience, there is something i have been meaning to raise with you, which is at 585 columbus avenue 1636, through 1642 there was a fire a number of years ago in 2014, all of those
8:37 am
units remain vacant to this day and i would love to be able to see those tennants return to that building. anything you can do with my office to help ensure that would be very much appreciated. with that, supervisor campos, do you have any additional amendments? >>supervisor david campos: thank you, mr. chairman. again i want to thank all the departments for coming out for this. i want to thank my colleagues for this support and more importantly i want to thank all the members of the community that have been coming to city hall for the last couple of years to talk about fires including victims of fires that have shared their stories. thank you. i know that's not an easy thing to do. i have circulated the amendments that i hope this committee adopts prior to sending this out to the board. my understanding is that the department association has requested
8:38 am
an additional amendment. we have discussed that request with all of the different stakeholders and i think we are all in agreement that we can live with that amendment. so, given that the city attorney is not here, maybe my suggestion would be that we adopt the amendments that i have circulated, and we will be requesting that the city attorney draft the language for the amendment that the department association has requested and we e will introduce that when the item comes to the full board. that will be my suggestion for moving forward. >> so with that supervisor, why don't we take the item that you have introduced today that does have some amendments in it. take those amendments and then send the item to the full board with recommendation as amended as a committee report and i would like to add my name as a cosponsor. can we do that without objection? that will be the order. so that will be heard this
8:39 am
coming tuesday, the 26th. i believe we have already called item no. 5. mr. korg us, welcome back. >> thank you, supervisors, glad to be back. today we have the yerba buena community benefit district annual report. as you know community benefit districts are governed by two laws in san francisco, article 4 act and tax regulations code. this resolution covers the annual report for 2014-2016. yerba buena cbd is located in downtown san francisco approximately 2001 parcels. it has an assessment budgets of
8:40 am
$2,509.21. it was renund on june 30, 2015, for a 15-year period. congratulations. the executive director is kathy moven who will be here today to talk about the programmatic achievements. the beautification in order and improvements as well as administration and corporate operations. reviewed four bench marks for the cbd. the first benchmark subjected their annual budget. the cdb met their requirements and the checkmark versus revenue and other income. the cbd general requirement is around 5%. they succeeded with that with 6.35%. the budget for actuals, all various opponents were within 10%. they met this requirement
8:41 am
and they did include a carry over and indicated how it was going to be spent. they met this requirement as well. in conclusion, yerba buena krbd was placed they completed the process in support of renewal. >> is that 84% the weighted? >> yes, sir. they marketed neighborhood events such as yerba buena fair. they included the community stakeholders and municipal agencies and continue to maintain an active board of directors and several committees. if there are no questions of me, ms. moss is here to present. >> thank you for the to present today. the my name is kathy moss,
8:42 am
the director of cbd. the organization was approved by property owners in 2008 and i came on in 2009. so you can either blame me for everything or otherwise. but i just want to give you a little bit of background about the organization today. our boundaries through the renewal process changed slightly. we added a little bit and we removed a little bit based on input and feedback from the community. we are a large district with over 2100 property owners and cover about 172 acres. recently we were the largest geographic cdb district in san francisco. since 2008, our services have been really focused around clean and safe activities in the neighborhood. we have our clean team, community guides and work
8:43 am
in partnership
8:44 am
8:45 am
8:46 am
8:47 am
8:48 am
8:49 am
>> so we launched this branding campaign. one of our early wins was to get mta to rename at folsom to rename from just
8:50 am
the masconi station. we are seeing it used more and more in the neighborhoods in san francisco and starting to see neighborhood calling itself the yerba buena neighborhood. we want to make sure that people know what's there so they will come down to support the institutions and businesses that are there. we also bring people together. our big annual is yerba buena night. it's usually on the saturday in october every year. it's this onslaught of music, dance performance art for people to come and experience. the things that you wouldn't be able to experience otherwise. the
8:51 am
event has grown gradually. it continues the grow. in 2016 it will be our sixth year. we constantly hear from people that want to come back. that's one of our goals. quickly another one of ours which is really important is we established the community benefit funds. we actually give away about $175,000 a year to organizations to focus on community engagement, public art. we gave grants out. we gave a grant to renaissance entrepreneurship for lighting because they have a lot of evening classes. we wanted to support that. we support temporary art. we have a long list of grantees that we have given
8:52 am
funds to support the areas. the details, our budget of $3.3, we spent $2.6. i'm kind of frugal. those are the percentages that you can see from our budget. moving forward, from 2014-2015. in our renewal effort people wanted us to double down on cleaning and safety. we couldn't literally afford to do that. we added two more cleaning guys. we have custom design bike racks in our neighborhood that each 30 have a different artistic insert if you will to play the artistic bent of the neighborhood. we will install another 90
8:53 am
this year. we are doing this graphic crosswalk. we just approved the artist. we are approving another artist. we are doing this bought of the art. we want to do high visibility crosswalks because pedestrian issues is a big in our neighborhood. they want to figure out how to make it safe for all modes of transit. we are in that eir will be some study about turning howard and folsom into two streets. we want to wait for that before ween vest any money in this process. if that's true, it will have a big impact. that's a huge issue for us. in marketing you see we
8:54 am
have our event coming up october 15th of this year. i will tell you, it's a ton of work to pull off, and the minute the first act goes up, it becomes magic and i forget all the months of the sweat and the pain if you will. i encourage you to check that out. we are going to be resdeening our website because everything changes and we need to add. then we are doing a lot in the neighborhood, and we got authorized to at a four staff member. we are currently staffed at 3. we'll put out and announcement for that position. >>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you for the years of work. you look like the flagship cbd, any other questions from members? thank you very much. >> thank you.
8:55 am
is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed.. without objection, supervisor campos we will send this recommendation to the full board without objection. one more. madam clerk, please read item no. 7. >>clerk: 160754 [north of market/tenderloin community benefit district - annual reports to the city - fys 2013-2014 and 2014-2015] sponsor: kim >> thank you, supervisors. this is the fiscal year 13-14 and fiscal year 14-15 in the market tenderloin report. it's located in the san francisco tenderloin neighborhood and the property based cbd. it's initial assessment budget is $981,487.
8:56 am
established in 2005. expires in 2020. with me is deputy director steve gibson joined in 2016 and prior to that susan mcginnis. the director as well. we have district identity improvements and management operations. ohewd checks for bench marks and the annual plan to meet the budget. they met the requirements for fiscal year 13-14. the fiscal year the cdb met this requirement, however the 2014-2015, the tenderloin did not meet the
8:57 am
requirements. we are working with them to work on this in the future years. he'll be speaking about this as well. >> what was that due to? >> it was due to a serious transition. the board replaced about 75-80% of their members due to term limits and the director was influx. >> prior to that, did they have a long term executive director. >> in 2011-2012, based on my understanding of the program they did. based off what i was told prior, that changes in 2014, and they have had a few executive directors. >> mr. gibner is interim at this point? >> yes, his contract last until july 2017. for benchmark 3 which is their budget versus the
8:58 am
can -- actual, they met the requirements for 18%. for the carry over, the cdb did not meet the benchmark for 2013-2014. they did not have a carry over. but that still should have been indicated in the annual report. they also, their cdb did not indicate their carry forward for 2013-2014, but it did in the final review. we'll work with them an all the the other cdb to clarify this. >> that seems to be a problem across all cbd's. >> that's going out in the e-mail. >> great. >> for the tenderloin, they need to comply with state
8:59 am
bid law by including the carry over fund from previous fiscal years. in the annual budget they did not comply with the past 5 years. they did not meet this requirement with the oebd. we'll ensure they meet this requirement and i'm happy to report they have made progress with the report for 15-16 and made progress since their last report in 2012-2013 in identifying errors and specifically not spending within a fiscal year. in conclusion, they have submitted their plans for the district and improved in management issues. oew believes the new board of directors and the interim director are executing steps to rectify previous issues and improve the organizations overall capacity.
9:00 am
if there are no questions of me, mr. gibner is here to present as well. >> all right. let's hear from mr. gibner. >> thank you for allowing me to present this morning. as chris said, the interim executive director. i will be here through june 30, 2017. >> mr. gibner, given the sound like the whole scale change of board members apparently due to term limits within the board and the instability that created both at the board level and staff level. it sounds like you are on a relatively term contract. is there a reason why the word "interim" remains? >> yeah. first of all we are a consulting firm.
9:01 am
we were brought in and we began working in july of 2015 to really help the new board that had replaced the board deal with some of the serious issues in the management of the tenderloin cbd and the board relationships and a number of issues and a number of business improvements with cbd throughout the country in these issues. >> what consulting group is that? >> urban place consulting group. >> are there other clients as well? >> we have other clients, the firm does. i'm up here with the majority of my time now. i have an apartment now and i'm part of the community. i also live in long beach, california. i have a
9:02 am
dual personality, my personal focus is on this project. >> how many staff do you have in the north of market tenderloin cbd? >> all of the stand is urban placed staff. i have three of my staff that put part of their time into this project and we have one other full time person that's now working in the tenderloin in the project. >> who is the president of the board and how many board members are there? >> currently there are 13 board members. julie with development is the chairman of the board. we actually at our last board meeting which was this monday expanded the board from 13 to 15. the reason we chose to expand the board is we had a really strong support and strong member of potential board members that came out of the
9:03 am
community that wanted to be on the board that playing a significant role. it is a new board at 75%. it's a major turn around to the tenderloin to the community based organization. >> could you at your convenience furnish my office with the list of new board members? >> sure. >> you might be interested in the cbd plan that led to us being management and led to the changes going forward. >> i would like to see that as well. please proceed.
9:04 am
>> thank you for the question. you have the map of the area. basically it has been since the beginning of the cbd, the majority of our money, about 80% of the assessment dollars goes to cleaning of the tenderloin. it's been that way from the beginning and still is, and we do the normal things, pressure cleaning, sidewalk sweeping, graffiti, picking up needles, all of those. you can see the numbers. over 2700 graffiti tags in a 2-year period. we are talking about. a lot of liter pick up. we get very involved with it picking them up. also part of our
9:05 am
agreement with san francisco city equipment we bought in 2013. one of the things that we are really proud of going forward we are trying to figure out how we can do it even more effective is providing jobs for people that come off the street in the tenderloin, and helping to provide them a way up, and one of the ways we do it is through our subcontractor that hires mostly from the tenderloin and people that are difficult to place in jobs. we give them their first job on their step back up. we have two standing committees. they are looking at
9:06 am
cleaning services and other issues, project way, cleaning projects, anderson the other identity streetscape improvements. they are open to members of the community. we have somewhere between 10-15 active members on each committee. most of which are not board members. it's a way for the community to be involved in our projects. they did a number of projects in these two periods, banner program, community survey, what are the needs, what would you like us to do. more engagement programs and involved in the prototyping zones on market. created a new website, a new identity, a new planning project. the summary of the core accomplishments are similar to most of the
9:07 am
cbd's and dib in san francisco. it's all the cleaning and basic things like picking up needles and basic time things. so, looking ahead, one of the things i'm really looking forward to is when we come back when we report on 15-16 because that will be the report that i was involved in and can personally explain it in more depth and more passionate about what we have accomplished and how we accomplished it. they did revise the bylaws and put in financial standards and did a lot of infrastructure things that needed to be done before we even got involved. projects and pipeline development and strategic plan, in this case it was, but now we are in
9:08 am
the process of developing that strategic plan. one of the really important things that came out of it was we'll use a lot is the board created a purpose statement about why they are in business, and the statement "to lead the area of tenderloin for all". that is what we do it in the tenderloin which is for all the people. we talked about expanding the board and looking forward to, we have a number of projects that we are currently working on. our street lighting project which has been a little
9:09 am
bit in the news. the project camera program that we are implementing in the district recently. a new banner program that we are in the process of designing. it will be up sometime this year. we have a number of things going forward. as what chris pointed out for the benefit other than the assessment money, we are well over the 5% by a lot. in the 2-year period, since we've been here, we now raised over $500,000 of new money invested by foundations and corporations into the the tenderloin cbn to help with our capacity and to help move us in the right direction. >> mr. gibson is that an argument to say that if you were to
9:10 am
average out that 5% over a 3-year period you would hit 15%? >> yeah. if you went backwards we would more than cover the deficiency we have. we have already raised enough in july to cover the year 15-17 going forward in that area. again, thank you for your time and we are excited about being here to work with the tenderloin cbn. and we look forward to making the next report and showing you all the milestones and things we have accomplished. >> thank you, mr. gibson. i appreciate your presentation. first, are there any members of the public who would like to testify on this item no. 7. seeing none, we will close public comment. mr. koergz, is this the last of the reports.
9:11 am
>> it's the last report for 13-14. the tourism report, we are waiting for one final report. we have the controllers office assist us with that. >> i'm just referring to the fact that in so far as this is the 2013-2014 and the 2014-2015, the 2013-2014, should have been heard last year. >> correct, the tourist and improvement district will have multiples as well. then we'll be all caught up with a report and not fall into another hiatus. >> got it. i don't want it to take place in the efforts at the market for the cbd. there has been some in terms of reflecting. i
9:12 am
don't want to point fingers at anybody because it is what it is. it also would it be fair to say that we the city kind of ab -- abrogated some of that role. >> i could not comment on that. a lot of these reports happened prior. so i don't understand the history of them, i don't know the history of them. i can look into that and get back to you on that. >> this is not just a comment on the north of market cbd. some of these hadn't done their annual report as required under the law for a number of years. it sounds like across the board you are in the process of cleaning it all up and we are almost done with a backlog and there is
9:13 am
moreover sight and supervision and checking as in the past. the reason this is important for the government and audit committee is that as the city goes on to create more cbd's i want to make sure we have the capacity on the city side to make sure we are scrutinizing and making sure they are fulfilling the position and what all are taxing themselves for. >> absolutely. back in january when we started the annual report process that once we got fully staffed up with were able to get the annual reports moving and get them moving on time. the cbd program is currently staffed well. >> thank you for that. i look forward to getting that list of board members with the strategic plan. with that, supervisor campos, can we forward this item to the full board with
9:14 am
a full recommendation? >> so moved. >> that will be the order. mr. city attorney. i think it's time to move to our closed session items. >> items 8-21 are various ordinances and resolutions for settlement and litigated claims with the city and county of san francisco. >> all right. we'll go into closed session. >>supervisor aaron peskin: is there any public comment on items 8-21. seeing none, public comment is closed. >>clerk: is there a motion to convene in closed session. >> there is a motion by supervisor campos to convene in closed session.

9:41 am
years later of residents have access to a vehicle and thirty percent are car free residents are exceeded the accomplish tida goal we already mold o mode shifdz tar beyond the goal to 60 percent of people ride muni the access to the bay bridge and parking on treasure island is the fundamental and inflated assumption of at this time this is counter this the economic they are because it is essential by month household and - it is more likely that higher prices will not reduce the demand the demand for high income is by definition unlikely to be elastic since prices is not a
