11:00 am
and i will forward it. the next two requests for application based traffic cal calming. propped k have the sales tax forms on local residential streets. they are primarily speed humps and traffic cushions. first is the applications accepted into the program. the applications received in june of 2018. this is the annual program. the m.t.a. received about 100 locations, about half were accepted into the program. in your packet there is an enclosure that includes the list of the locations where applications were received for and the locations accepted into the program. this is for the implementation of that work. next request is to evaluate the applications that came in june
11:01 am
of 2019, and this is also including the locations that are in the packet in the enclosure to your packet materials. the next request is for the design phase of the safe taylor for streetscapes. this is a large capital project thank has been informed from planning work over the last several work by working group input that will complete next summer. this is in addition to the quick build projects that have gone in from the sf m.t.a. quick build program. the next is for the safe streets evaluation. it is the second year prop k has funded this program. it is evaluation of projects
11:02 am
planned or underway and to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments m.t.a. is using to increase safety at these locations. m.t.a. presented the last report in spring of 2019. i would expect the next report would be presented in similar timing. next two requests are the first two neighborhood transportation improvement planning from cycle two. first is district four mobility improvements. appropriation to transportation authority to study profile and travel patterns of district four residents. objective to identify the high shares of single vehicle use and to explore how to get single vehicle use to decline by
11:03 am
offering alternatives to drive alone and with the final report presented to this body next fall, which is similar to timing. this is for the second tip neighborhood program for the safety improvements to i guy hotspots on alemany and to come up for recommendations on improving safety so there won't be a series of meetings over the year and final report to the body in september of next year. i am going to turn this over to julie, who will present the powerpoint presentation you have in your packet materials. >> the floor is yours. >> i believe we are pulling up the powerpoint.
11:04 am
>> good morning. julie kirsch ball, transit director. thank you for the opportunity to talk about this really critical program for our transit system the midlife overhaul program. it came out of our 2017 fleet plan, which really sought to transition from having among the oldest fleet in america to a new and reliable float that i am pleased to say is the cleanest in north america. what is exciting to me about these is that not only have we adopted them at the planning level, but they have been institutionalized. we have seen a complete cultural change in the maintenance group
11:05 am
and how we approach maintenance. there is broad adoption for the program. it includes things like developing a performance based spec. we used to be specific about every nut and vote on the vehicles. really the industry is much better suited to design to make sure they are highest standards, aligning with the city sustainability roles and anticipating the growth upon us. the program has become a three corelments. first space out the procurements. previously all of our buses were new and old at the same time. sometimes they were reliable and sometimes they were not. everything with a midlife not
11:06 am
built into the program. we worked hard to spread out the procurement. we will continue to do that. >> the second was that the vehicles needed to be maintained to the highest standard. if you picture your car, the vehicle is recommended to have an ale change every three thousand miles. we have instructions on the preventative maintenance programs. 1.5000 miles and we are constantly using our own data as well. sometimes we are exceeding the recommendations and replacing sooner. with our hills and heavy loads
11:07 am
some things need replaced sooner. the third is the midlife overhaul program. wheel the buses have a self life of 12 to 15 years, depending motor coach or trolley, many of the come opponents in this vehicle have a shorter lifespan. we want to expect high performance in year 11 as in years 2, 3 3, and 4. we have had a major fleet transition with significant support from prop k. we replaced 800 motor and trolley coaches in the last six years. the last vehicles are 40-foot trol low coaches. we have 160. we will have completed by
11:08 am
november. as part of the program we also added more 60-foot buses. corridors like patro would have larger buses. the last will happen this january. the investment in our fleet has paid tremendous dividends. one of the things we measure for the quality of the vehicle is how often does it breaking down in service? if you look at the numbers from the 1980s it was breaking down every two to three thousand miles. up to 6,000 in the 2000s. today the breakdowns are 10 to 12,000. as few as five to six vehicles breaking in service today. >> through this investment we
11:09 am
have seen a doubling of performance on these fleets, the other advantage with not having everything old or new at the same time the other benefit is that you can make improvements as you go. for example, our newest vehicles will have a state of the art securement system and as we look to our midlife we will upgrade the existing vehicles with these features, bike racks, seats that are less rattley. some safety features like in the photo. the midlife typically happens
11:10 am
within years six to eight of the vehicles with the intent to keep the vehicles 12 to 15 years. we have not traditionally done midlife overhauls in our system. it makes us unique and not in a good way in the industry. i think i am really pleased that this program is taking root. we have experience with midlife. we did do a midlife on a small portion of our cranio plans, and we did this to help spread out the procurement that i discussed. as part of this we did see an improvement in the failures. 3500 to 6,000. we were able to extend the life of the fleet and comfort for passengers. these are the before and after photos. you can see it in the top.
11:11 am
heavily graffiti that we were able to clean up. on the right is a structural repair to the frame that we were able to make to re-enforce the vehicle. you don't see this graffiti in the new vehicles in part because of our strict vehicle appearance standards. also, because the new vehicles were very much designed to be graffiti-resistant. everything from the floor to the surfaces being quick wipe were designed to reduce gaff graffitd vandalism. this is for 330 vehicles. each vehicle would be out of service for about 40 days. we estimate 13 to 15 vehicles at a time with the expectation of
11:12 am
getting 8 to 12 vehicles back a month. once the vehicles come back, they do go through thorough testing and inspection about going back on the road. this is a three phase program with the intent of doing a midlife on the entire rubber tire fleet with phase two beginning in 2022 and phase three in 2025. thank you for your time i am available to answer any questions that you have on this program. >> supervisor peskin: we are delighted to have the state-of-the-art fleet in north america. i see a number of commissioners on the roster. do any of you have questions as it relates to the midlife over hall of the new flyers? no.
11:13 am
okay. with that, commissioner brown. >> commissioner brown: yes, i actually would like to request funding from the speed radar sign installation program for oak street. >> request funding for a specific project? >> speed and radar installation program. i know they are looking at sites to put those. i am actually requesting that fell and oak be on those streets. >> that is absolutely noted. the project managers are here. those locations will be taken into consideration as m.t.a. is evaluating potential locations for implementation. i will have them work with your office for an update. >> supervisor peskin: commissio. >> chair mar: thank you. i wanted to thank the ta staff,
11:14 am
particularly director staff for working with my office on the district four mobility improvement study. on the prop k i want to say we are excited about moving ahead with this and coming up with new ideas to expandment offices for sunset residents that are the most car dependent in the city, but i know that the residents in the sun set are very interested in getting out of their cars, and they will be interested in coming up with new ideas to do that. thank you. >> commissioner haney. >> supervisor haney: thank you, chair peskin. i had a question about the speed
11:15 am
radar sign installation program. it seems like the timeline is a couple years for it to get done, and thanks to the leadership of chair peskin and supervisor yee and others we are pushing forault to speed enforcement. would this in any way help to prepare us or how does this relate to that? in addition do we have an analysis of making these effective. do they provide warnings when people are going at fast speeds. how do we make sure these are effective and lining us up for hopefully automated speed enforcement. >> i will have the project manager address your questions. we have required before and
11:16 am
after speed data. this is something that is cac pointed out. how effective are the signs? there is not enforcement tied to the signs necessarily in april of themselves. they are to make the driverss aware of the speed. they have been shown to have some benefit. i will let phillip go into detail on that. as far as automated speed enforcement, that is independent of this project, but parallel to. there is no substitute and the enforcement part of the auto speed enforcement be is what is primarily different from the signs. >> good morning. these signs are directly
11:17 am
informational they don't do any type of enforcement. they don't record speed information. i think they do have the capability to record some speed information but not to enforce any pictures or anything like that, the license plates or anything. >> thank you. secondly, i had a question about taylor street. it was the street where we recently had a fatal crash on taylor. there were efforts to analyze that intersection. have from been any changes made as a result of that analysis that followed that crash? i got some feedback from people who spend time in that area. i spend the time so the way the
11:18 am
bill has been sent up maybe leads to increased speed. has that impact the what we are doing with taylor street overall? >> let me get back to you? i will work with sf m.t.a. staff for a full response. >> supervisor peskin: commissio? >> supervisor yee: i have questions. maybe add to the remark about the radars. i found it to be somewhat effective for my neighborhood. what i think it does is for those that want to speed are going to speed, and i think when those that are more conscious about their efforts, the radar
11:19 am
thing wasn't there they will go so miles more. they will slow down and it forces other cars to slow down. that is what i have seen. i don't know if it is like that elsewhere. iit is effective. it doesn't stop. that is that. i want to ask a few questions around -- thank you for the allocation. i hope, hopefully, we will support it to study the undergrounding of the m line is something w we are encouraging u to move quickly on. this study is good.
11:20 am
i am concerned about what kind of outreach we will have. number one, i know there is nothing being done yet. the sooner we inform our communities of the possibility, because if it is decided that we have enough funding to move forward, the disruption we learned from central line will be enormous, and we have done some outreach regionally in terms of moving to this concept along 19th avenue mostly, but the larger impact will be westport area. we haven't done a whole lot there. that is one question, and in regards to the development of
11:21 am
this, i am hoping that we take into consideration and have a business plan of some sort to again catch it in front of the curb, what kind of impact would this have on businesses along this corridor. we are looking at many, many years of tearing up the street and so forth, i want us to be te able to say we will impact you, we will mitigate rather than scrambling five years after the fact. >> thank you commissioner yee and sarah jones, it is my team that is engaging? this study. your questions regarding the out
11:22 am
reach. this is technical from the standpoint we are talking about a big challenge in undergrounding through the portal. that is going to be a key factor in answering that question of whether this is a project that makes sense that we want to prioritize and pursue as a city. we are looking into important questions here, but one key piece of that is really understanding what it means for the community that is experiencing this. yes, outreach is intended to be part of this effort. we have to work hard to make sure there is really understanding of what we are talking about and what the right questions are to be asking. as you note, we are not yet
11:23 am
ready to say, yes, we are doing this, but we do want to talk through and understand the trade-offs, how do you balance bigger i issue. city needs, public needs, the riding public with the individual neighborhood. that is something we want to grapple within this project. your second question -- second question towards construction mitigation, i don't know that this piece of this study at this moment in time is where we would put our focus. it is something that we do intend and recognize the need to bring into the print when we are
11:24 am
really planning to put shovels in the ground for sure. it is hard to know the conditions and needs what they will be several years from now but something we are keeping in mind as we talk and want to make commitments around. >> i think it is not getting to the dollar signs at the mitigation is along every step of the process that we are consures about that. if the end report will be given, it should say something about business mitigation to be studied more carefully so that community feels more confident we are paying attention.
11:25 am
>> we can make sure that it is address addressed and that we are asking questions and talking about it a along the way. >> i am done with this piece. i have a question on the speed radar sign installation program. how many we are looking at, do you know? how are the locations termed determined? i think it is five or six lobses or signs. this would be to stall them. their locations are identified by community and staff requests in house or at the agencies that they are candidate locations
11:26 am
that would by recommended for this and request from the community. in your enclosure to your packet, there is the guidelines that m.t.a. uses to prioritize the speed radar type. we are at the location, that is more public. what is implemented is based on the guidelines that the m.t.a. has adopted. >> when i read it, i kepted it. in regards to the safer streets evaluation program, the 15 or 20 projects, what order preand post data is being everythings
11:27 am
collision of oles oles oles is on you on you isings collision of -- r -- collectedded. >> so the evaluation that would be done, and i will make sure if the response is not complete sf m.t.a. staff will get back to you. it has consistent metrics across the projects is what this is saying in the request materials, the data would be i would imagine speed, collision rates,
11:28 am
before and after abide dense to the infrastructure along those lines. it is standard across the project. same data will be collected. i will get back to you with a more robust response from m.t.a. >> that would be great. i am interested to see. >> commissioner ronen. >> chair ronen: similar to commissioner brown. i want to make a request a speed radar sign installation be placed on cortland avenue. i am not sure what the best intersection is there, we have had pedestrian fatality at one intersection. we had a pedestrian hit. it is an incredibly busy street
11:29 am
where there are tons of kids going back and forth from the library, there is a bus line on the street making it difficult to put speed bumps that are effective. we reached the limit of what we can do in traffic coming with the exception of a radar sign which seems like a good place to put one. i would like to put that on the record. >> we will make sure m.t.a. staff follow up with your office as well. >> commissioner safai. >> supervisor safai: the wait is long. thank you. i am glad you have a small project but important project on the list today for $100,000. i want to add that i am hoping this doesn't take until
11:30 am
september 20 next year to finalize the report. we want a robust community outreach process. the accidents are piling up. thank god we haven't had any fatalities. the accidents and collisions are piling up weekly if not monthly. we get e-mails all of time when another car that had a collision. the cars speed by. a gentleman sent me a photograph. they lived in the community o onalonalamany. cars crashed into them and side swiped them. we have talked about these things. i am happy to put $100,000 of my money toward this. i am happy you will prioritize this. we are talking about having this
11:31 am
process launch for four or five months. i don't want to wait until september 2020. i would like to have a quick resolution so we can begin putting out the costs and then come back to request the improvements that need to happen. they are straightforward. we need need lights and traffic calming, all of you will come in. we need to accelerate this process. that is important to me. i want to cut that timeline at least in half. >> noted. commissioner fewer. >> supervisor fewer: i want to put fulton corridor on the list for the traffic signs. >> speed radar signs?
11:32 am
>> yes, thanks. >> miss laporte is nodding here head. that concludes questions and comments from commissioners are there members of the public to testify on item 6? seeing none, public comment is -- go ahead. item 6 going once. the floor is yours. >> this presentation is a very long presentation starting about 200 issues. then we have to give our comments in two minutes. i have divided two-parts. the allocation sounds good but takes a long, long time. 16 years ago we asked for traffic lights. recently they have been addressed but not completed. as i told you, the crosswalks
11:33 am
are not painted. there is all this talk, it is just talk. again and again i say that it has to be good project management and mitigation of which the m.t.a. lacks. when we approach we can't get a response. of course, sfcta is good at presentations but not enforcement. we have to go to someone to make it work. that is why you have allocation stuff, not money in the areas that really need it. why should it take 16 years for the traffic lights. we initiated that request together.
11:34 am
when it comes to talking about buses, i would like to have our union here like before. i would like to have them speak about the buses. when i ask how are the buses working, they don't address congestion. there are six nine buses back-to-back. what do you say about that. my two minutes are gone. >> public comment is closed. i apologize, i did not see you. we will re-open. >> i am dwayne gains. i would like to know, m.t.a. is crazy. it is on the weekend. what sense does that make? i got the nine. i am waiting for 15, 20 minutes
11:35 am
on the weekend. people are going to chinatown, downtown, shopping. you had the many 9r with double brush and took it off on the weekend. >> cash it on sunday. it doesn't make any sense to me. thank you. >> any other members of the public for item 6? public comment is really closed. is there a motion with regard to item 6 made by commissioner yee and seconded by commissioner fewer. a house rolling call, please. (roll call).
11:36 am
>> you have got your $17.9 million. one person is clapping. are there any introduction of new items? any general public comment? >> i have a new item? >> supervisor peskin: what. >> commissioner haney. >> i had one thing that i would lover to ask for a future meeting. i have spoken to staff about this. everybody knows that this year we are on track to have one of our most deadly years for pedestrians and cyclists, and a huge part of our effort to reverse that is the enforcement component. the mayor has issued a directive to focus on the five most deadly
11:37 am
behaviors on the roads and topthose be 50% of our tickets. what i would love to have is an update to this body on that directive. what additional resources have been invested? how can we access additional funding to support it? are we preventing violations and keeping people safe? this is also looking at the red light camera strategy and broader enforcement component to vision zero. >> noted. we will find appropriate venue which will be this body or the vision zero committee. i will work to achieve that. any general public comment? mr. de koss ta. >> i want a comment on market street. in one week twice all of the
11:38 am
tram-cars stalled on market street. i want to know how this happenings. it is only one line in the year 2019 that all tram-cars should hook up to this one line or can we have two lines? once the tram-cars stall, there is added congestion, too much congestion. somebody should look into this. it has been happening a long time. we have fancy tram-cars. dianne feinstein started that program. there is nothing wrong with that, but is a disgrace when we have so much congestion.
11:39 am
we are already known to be second to los angeles if i'm not mistaken, and congestion contributes to this. i don't know how to handlize the footprints on the concrete, industrial dish. our children and infants are suffering. look into the tram-cars. if somebody could spend me an e-mail so i could speak offline about what i think about the tram-cars and congestion and health. as supervisors we represent the people. don't screw our health. that is happening in san francisco. san francisco has lost its soul. thank you very much. >> any other members to testify under general public comment.
11:40 am
public comment is closed. let me mention to staff relative to commissioner haney's hearing request in addition we have a representative of the mayor's office. that concludes this meeting. we are adjourned.
11:41 am
11:42 am
>> mayor breed: i just figured everybody would be at work and it would be a couple of us today. but i see the cole valley community came out. thank you so much for being here today at wooden, one of the newest establishments right here in the cole valley community. this is an amazing neighborhood. so many great places like reverie and the ice cream bar and zazie. this is an incredible place to enjoy the day. there's wine that you can buy. there is a postal service. there is hardware. anything that you want is located in this community. it's one of the best-kept secrets in san francisco. i know that because i come out
11:43 am
here and hide a lot. [ laughter ]. >> mayor breed: but of course the community, they recognize me because i served as a supervisor and one of the things that we know happens sometimes with our small businesses, they get caught up in the bureaucracy, when all they want to do is provide a service to the community. this is a neighborhood where people know one another, where they walk down the street and see one another, where they hang out in places like this to enjoy each other's company. where we have watched kids grow up in this neighborhood. the fact that small businesses which oftentimes are run by the owners of the small businesses, the fact that they have to deal with so much bureaucracy makes me crazy. one of the things i have said we need to do time and time again is can you tell the bureaucratic
11:44 am
red tape that gets in the way of allowing our small businesses to just exist and be enjoyable for communities like cole valley. [ applause ]. >> mayor breed: so i'd like to use this as an example, and let me pause for a minute and recognize captain bailey and the folks from park police station and the people who keep our community safe. we really appreciate you. [ applause ]. >> mayor breed: but when i was supervisor, val, you remember this, free gold watch. you all know that, the pinball machines in that place. so free gold watch, an incredible place. there were pinball machine tournaments, there were activities, a place where the community came together. well, unfortunately it discovered after they opened that they were basically not in compliance with the law. years ago in the 1980s when we thought that video games were
11:45 am
going to destroy young people, destroy civilization as we know it, all these laws were created that limited the ability to have these arcade locations within the certain area of the school or a park or gas station and all this craziness. i just couldn't believe it that we could potentially lose this amazing institution because of some dated laws. of course, it's not just about creating new laws, but about fixing the old laws that put us in this situation in the first place. we got rid of that. free gold watch and all these other amazing places are open to bring back our childhood for most of us who lived through that time. this is no exception, where i think you just -- if you just wanted to basically have music and sell a little bit of wine and beer for a comedy night. what he had to go through has
11:46 am
been crazy because of some laws that were passed that impact neighboring communities which is sometimes unfair. what we are doing today is making it easier for small businesses to provide what i think is a basic community service. of course, when you're watching comedy, you have to have wine or beer or some kind of beverage in your hand to just enjoy it. because most of the comics sometimes aren't even funny. [ laughter ]. >> mayor breed: so here we are. trying to make it easier for our small business community and sign this legislation. my commitment to addressing what we know is a real challenge around how small businesses are able to survive and thrive in this city is important to me. dealing with our empty store fronts, coming up with new solutions, both with changes to
11:47 am
our policies but also with financial investments. even if we can't get rid of certain fees, i do think it's important that we continue through the mayor's office of economic and workforce development under the leadership of qua -- joaquim torez to make sure we are working with small businesses to do facade improvements and many others. this is how we're going to get there and the board of supervisors who has been incredibly focused. even before she was on the board of supervisors where she served as a legislative aid for two previous supervisors, i was one of those supervisors, there was no one more committed to supporting small businesses and being responsive to the community than your supervisor, district 5 supervisor, val brown. [ applause ].
11:48 am
>> i just want to thank a few people. i have them written down. i want to first thank the mayor. i want to thank the team at o.e.w.d., ben, when we were doing this legislation, it was grinding. just because it was pushed out, came back. ben would come back and think he had a way to do that. i want to thank my aide in the corner hiding like normal. [ applause ]. >> he kept saying, we can do it, we can do it. i want to thank the chamber of commerce. they were there all along coming to meetings and speaking in favor. the council of district merchants. and really especially the cole valley community. when this came to me -- i have to say, though, this is kind of
11:49 am
a bit of a strange groundhog day for me. when we talked about this, actually planning came to us ten years ago and asked us to clean up a lot of the regulations around these kind of restrictions for businesses, because they said they were archaic, hurting small business. you have to remember ten years ago we were in a downturn, the economic downturn. we just didn't have time or the bandwidth to deal with it. when this came back to me ten years in the making, that happened with clean power. i started clean power and finished it in supervisor breed's office. this was ten years in the making again. but this time i said, hey, you know what? this is a heavy lift, but we need to do this for small businesses. we need to do this for the person that comes every morning, opens up their door, is here serving coffee, is here cutting your hair, giving you some of
11:50 am
the best cheese you've ever had at say cheese. we need to do this for small business. they're struggling. we, as a city, should be doing everything we can to keep small businesses in place and to open small businesses. we need to be able to take the regulations away that hurt them, to take the time it takes to open a small business. i don't know how you can afford to pay for a space for a year to 18 months before you even have a business. how is that possible? you have to probably save for two years just to open a small business. so we have to say no. we have to make sure that we protect small businesses. because, look, i lived in lower haye for 20 years and then i moved into this community. i feel it's a mayberry. i walk down the street and know
11:51 am
everybody. i can go from one store to another and get what i need for my everyday needs and meet the people that i absolutely adore on these streets. so we have to keep these neighborhood corridors vibrant. if we don't have vibrant neighborhood corridors, what does that do? that affects the whole entire community. when the neighbors came to me, cole valley, and said, look, we really support this business. they want a simple beer and wine license so he can have comedy night. how many times does a neighborhood come to you and say we want this business of a beer and wine? usually it's the owner, right? i said, wow, steve, you must have done something right in this neighborhood because they absolutely loved steve and said, steve, we want you to be here and successful. the least i could do was take this legislation and push it
11:52 am
through. now, it took me three times before it went through l.a.n. use and i had third time is a charm and we got it through. we did it and we all worked together, and it was unanimous at the board. i want to thank everyone who was involved. there was so many people who came out for public comment. people behind the scenes saying this is what we need. steve, you came to those public comments. your staff watched the store while you came. your café. you waited and spoke three times. i'm sorry. we shouldn't be doing that to small businesses. so really appreciate your time becau because, steve, you helped the whole city. you helped the whole city when the supervisors heard your story and they said, we've got to help this person, this small business, you helped the whole
11:53 am
city. so you're an activist. [ applause ]. >> so that point i'm going to introduce steve wikwire that owns this marvelous café and give you a few words. thank you. [ applause ]. >> thank you all for being here. so some of you know i opened this shop after working in san francisco for ten years. i wanted to bring my passion and dedication for really high-end coffee service to cole valley, where i thought it was needed. it's been really awesome and amazing being able to contribute to this community. with this legislation passing, we'll be able to contribute
11:54 am
more, namely, staying open later, providing beer and wine service, and doing really fun comedy shows here that i think will just breathe some new life into the neighborhood and add to the mix around here. i really just want to thank our district supervisor vallie brown and her team for supporting this. [ applause ]. >> if we do want to see more small businesses opening and being run by community members, people who want to serve their communities. it just needs to be a little bit easier to do. we need more pathways for these businesses to grow and adapt as they move forward. so that's really what this is all about. all of your support has made
11:55 am
that happen here, so thank you all so much. [ applause ]. >> thank you. up next is rodney fong. >> thank you, steve. congratulations. i feel like it's a new day. it's a fresh breath of air. it literally is a chamber of commerce day here in san francisco. i want to thank mayor breed, supervisor brown for being champions of this legislation. all of the points you bring up about the vitality of san francisco, how important it is for our streets to be filled with people and to get involved with businesses. at the chamber of commerce we've put an emphasis on small businesses. i feel growing up in a small business and running our wax museum down at fishermen's
11:56 am
wharf, creativity is the secret sauce. if we can give entrepreneurs the ability to be cultivators of things, we're going to do well. i'm happy to be here. i hope we have many, many more opportunities like this. congratulations to the planning department and clearing some of the red tape. hopefully we can get more businesses open here this san francisco. thank you very much for coming, and congratulations to you. [ applause ]. >> mayor breed: thank you, rodney. before we sign this legislation, i just want to thank our two small business commissioners for being here today. thank you so much. steve, who is the president of the commission and sharkie, one of the newest sworn-in commissioners because of his challenges with his small business here in san francisco. so you really have some champions helping to push forward the kinds of policies that hopefully will make a difference for our small business community here in san francisco. now, let's get this piece of
11:57 am
legislation signed. [ applause ] [ applause ] [♪]
11:58 am
