10:40 am
lease amendments for the united states navy treasure island water waterfront and land and structures and marina and child care and event and venues and firefighter training center for week 10. >> good morning. we are here to ask for your approval of the master leases. as you know the treasure island authority became the caretaker of the islands 16 years ago. during that time what we call the interim period use while the property is waiting to transfer to the city the navy allows us to lease the property and buildings at no cost through the six master leases just read into the record. they sub lease the
10:41 am
records for maritime and special events to generate revenue to operate the island and we have operated self sufficiently for the last 16 years and these expire annually and when they remove or add properties to the master leases it requires your approval. the master lease has been amended 37 times over the 16 years. some are for public purpose and don't generate income like the [inaudible] beach and the shoreline promenade and other leases are with nonprofits like the little leagues and catholic charities and still others are with city agencies like the fire department. these permits generate millions of dollars to the islands for the operation and include staffing and contracts and services to provide services to the residents and pursuant to the
10:42 am
resolution of the board of supervisors establishing our authority and the bylaws supervisors approval required to enter into these contracts to extend the term until november 30, 2014. once they transfer the property or parcels are done the navy to the city these amendments would no longer be necessary but until that time we seek your approval to generate income to pay for the municipal services and street lining, building maintenance and urban forestry and child care development, programs for the youth through the ymca and the boys and girls club for the island community and i seek your approval for these amendments. >> thank you very much. madam clerk i believe -- we need to make these items retroactive to december 1, is that correct.
10:43 am
>> yes. >> deputy city attorney john gibner, just the title. >> just the title. thank you very much. >> thank you supervisors. >> any questions? again the budget analyst report is none. anyone to comment on public comment? seeing none public comment is closed. okay. so we need to move forward for amendment to change the title to that date. >> i will move that amendment. >> okay. that amendment is move without opposition and the underlying items and move them forward without opposition. so moved. okay. thank you very much. madam clerk can you please call item 16. >> item 16 is ordinance appropriating $4,388,000 and transit center district funds and transportation development impact years to the municipal transportation agency to
10:44 am
support capital improvement projects for fiscal year 2013-2014. >> we have several speakers. >> i am with the mta and we are here to request budget authorization for approximately 4.4 million dollars of development impact fees for various pedestrian and other safety transportation and open space projects from the rincon area and the market octavia and the new transit area. these funds will fund nine projects in these areas and we are looking for your support to move forward with these projects. i am here to answer any questions about specific projects. thank you. >> supervisor mar any questions? >> i wanted to ask about the budget analyst's recommendations. are you in agreement with those? >> we are in agreement, yes. we would like to thank the planning department and the mayor's
10:45 am
office and budget for moving this item forward. >> thank you very much. we you have move to the budget analyst report mr. rose. >> on page 29 we report that the appropriation for the neighborhood plan and the acvaifia plan and the rink con projects totaling $4,388,000 are in the city's capital plan and table two page 22 of our report and on page 22 we have a table through which shows that the total fund balance for the eastern neighborhoods impact fee and octavia community infrastructure fees and the other infrastructure fees as of this date was 13 million plus so if you do approve the
10:46 am
appropriation the requested $4,388,000 and request in a fund balance as listed. our recommendation on page 23 is that we recommend that you amend the proposed ordinance to place $500,000 in transit center district open space impact fees and $300,000 in transit center and street improvement impact fees for total of $800,000 on reserve and that's because the actual receipt of such impact revenues that have not been received and that you approved the proposed ordinance as amended. >> thank you mr. rose. supervisor mar any questions for the budget analyst? okay. we will move on to public comment. seeing none public comment is closed. okay. so can i have a motion to approve the amendments as suggested. >> so moved. >> we will take those without opposition and the underlying item as amended and take that without opposition as well. madam clerk can you please call
10:47 am
item 17. >> item 17 is resolution authorizing the office of community and infrastructure and aggregate bonds not to exceed $70,000,000 for the amount of financing the obligations for the successor agency and redevelopment agency for the area. >> i am leo levinson for the department and the successor agency to the redevelopment agency and what you have before you is an request to increase the bonding authority in the budget. it was originally 58.6 million and this would increase to $70 million and the reason for the increase is turns out that we have been advised that it may be possible to realize more bond proceeds than we expected at the time we submitted the budget. these bonds are under the term of a
10:48 am
development agreement with the developer has advanced already probably up to $120 million so far of unreimbursed infrastructure cost in this area. under the terms of the agreement they are allowed to request us to bond and required to bond up to the limit that we can in order to reimburse the costs. the overall cost for the developer expected to advance approximately $700 million for the scbrairses a major commitment and doing this in line with that agreement. the debt service on these bonds are paid from property tax increment in the area and already pledged to the area so there will be no general fund impact from this action. we're very closely coordinating with the city's office of public finance which is part of our team helping to prepare the bond documents and we have been grateful for their help so i am happy to answer
10:49 am
any questions. >> thank you very much. any questions? okay. we have no budget analyst report so we will move to public comment. anyone wish to comment? seeing none public comment is closed. can i have a motion to move this forward with recommendation. >> so moved. >> and we can take that without opposition. madam clerk can you go back and call item eight please. >> item eight is release of reserve founds in the adult probation department in the amount of amount eight for the sex offender containment model. >> thank you for being here. >> good morning supervisor farrell supervisor mar. i am the chief deputy of the probation department and behalf of chief wendy still and planned to attend the hearing but she is testifying in the courts building. the adult probation department urges this committee to approve the comprehensive
10:50 am
budget and legislative analyst recommendation to release $268,000 of the appropriated and reserved amount eight of state realignment funds on the current budget and reserve for the sex offender containment model and housing. we urgedded committee to reserve also the amount listed. >> thank you very much. if no questions at this point we will move to the budget analyst report. mr. rose please. >> mr. chairman, supervisor mar on the budget of page 14 of the report we state based on the actual expenditures through the time listed and that is shown in the table on page 15 of our report and based on that
10:51 am
observations projects cost estimates and require a total of 457056 in 13-14 to supplement the existing agreements with the san francisco forensic institute and the clinic. and the reserved amount in 13 /14 the total need is 268653 and not the requested amount and on page 15 we request that you release the amount listed of the appropriate reserve and that's of ab 109 realignment funds currently on budget and finance committee reserve and that you continue to reserve 245697. >> thank you mr. rose. is the department in agreement with these recommendations? >> yes. >> okay. perfect. supervisor mar. >> thank you chair farrell. i
10:52 am
just had a quick question. can you talk about the experience of ssfi and the tenderloin housing clinic with this segment of offenders? >> well, the san francisco forensic institute is first of all has to be in order to provide this service they have to be certified through the california standard management board. i think we're very fortunate in san francisco to have a qualified provider that provides a specific service to this unique clientele. i think they of in business for significant part of time and have a reputation of providing topnotch intervention service. now, regarding the tenderloin housing clinic we have an issue involving -- we have a population of roughly 50 sex
10:53 am
offenders who are required to register who are homeless and we know through homelessness that it creates destabilization and when we have destabilization with our sex offender population or any of our supervision populations that increases risk to reoffend, so in addition to trying to implement this state mandated containment model we're taking it an extra step to try to really address the issue of housing and doing it by extending the contract through the tenderloin housing clinic for rental subsidies. it's my understanding they go up to $800 a month and depends what our client can contribute. >> thank you. >> okay. much appreciated. we
10:54 am
will open up to public comment if anyone wishes to comment on item eight please step forward. okay. seeing none public comment is closed. okay. first of all we have amendments in front of us suggested by the budget analyst. can we take those with recommendation? >> we can take those without opposition. >> and the underlying item without opposition as well. >> so moved. >> okay. we have the last item of the day so madam clerk can you call item 18. >> item 18 is hearing regarding funding the municipal transportation agency's bicycle strategy. >> thank you very much. this is an item sponsored by supervisor mar so i will turn it over to him to do the hearing. >> thank you. we have a audience of not only children but bicycle advocates with us and i would like to thank kathy
10:55 am
and fred for their incredible work from the budget analyst office. i have been working with my staff peter [inaudible] who did work on this as well, but i first wanted to thank them for the attention and the seriousness that they took towards this. last may when the bicycle coalition and other advocates organized a bike to workday that i believe all the supervisors and the mayor participated in and i spent the night in intense frustration and there is the happy side and the side that san francisco needs to be a bike friendly city but when you look at the funding it's neglected and when you look at it it's half of what is needed and after the deaths of emily and others i along with other bicycle
10:56 am
advocates and others felt pissed off there's not enough work done to make our streets safer or even to follow up after deaths happen and i think this hearing is coming out of much of that intense frustrations and also being pissed off as well. i have been looking at different studies from five years ago from mayor newsom's administration to other bike strategy proposals by the mta and even surveys by the san francisco county transportation authority that show that 2/3 of the city want significant increases in bike funding and 1/2 of those surveyed by the transportation authority want aggressive increases in funding so we're here today kind of thinking about the demands from not only bicycling advocates but the vast majority of the people in the city as well and we are looking at this report that compares us
10:57 am
to other cities and if we like to think of ourselves as a bicycle city and seattle and portlandia and even minneapolis put us to shame and i hope we put our money where our mouth is by the end of this hearing and follow up as well. we spend less per citizen versus these cities and this is all in spietd of the fact that biking as a mode share is greater here than those cities and many cities throughout the country. this year we suffered and felt the consequences of inaction as a city with bicycling and many deaths and emily's death and others that we know about dangerous and not just soma but in the city and young professionals that have perished and to eldr elders as well and i think there is a more
10:58 am
imperative and many advocated this and make the city safer for bicycling and other modes of transportation as well. also bicycling needs to be safe for families to feel comfortable to bike in the city as well so that's a goal. the responsibility to fund the bicycling infrastructure really falls on all of us as the board of supervisors but also for the mayor and the city departments as well, and i believe that we have failed in that regard as well according to the reports. the mta, the mayor and certainly our board of supervisors i think have to come together hopefully with this hearing but also and beyond to put our money where our mouth is and to support demands that have been coming from different neighborhoods in the city for increased and even just adequate bicycle funding in the city so this year i mentioned we suffered consequences of inaction. we have seen that as we advocate
10:59 am
to make our streets safer that kind has been addressing other issues as well. i wanted to just wrap up my introduction remarks by saying i think the report from mr. rose's office is the result of an incredible amount of analysis and work and thinking of recommendations that hopefully will dialogue on today and beyond. i wanted to say to that as a member of the bay air quality air district and the bay area association of districts and as we increase growth and transportation goals we have to absolutely improve bicycle spending and infrastructure in the city. reaching the goal of 50% of the trips by transit biking and walking is an ambitious goal but i think we can achieve that by not looking at the muni system which is
11:00 am
heavily burdend and how we get a good bang for the buck and increasing spending in the bicycle infrastructure as well and as i said muni can't do it alone and infrastructure is a key part of meeting the city's goals. very low maintenance and operational cost of muni makes investing in bicycling really an incredibly cost effective way of improving our climate change goals of our city and our climate action plan as a city so san francisco cannot afford to not invest in bicycling infrastructure according to the report and even the mta's own bicycle plan from five years ago to the plans of the bicycle strategy today in 2013 point us to really put our money where our mouth is and fund much more aggressively the bicycle infrastructure suggestions of the mta and i would like to ask
