8:19 am
of proportion time how the takes are assessed and the construction using the functions a joint facility commitment brown the city and bart to talk about how the funds can be structured and transferred to those agrees for the project that are under their per view with the melrose fund. i'm going to talk about the cities planning efforts in the transbay area and i'm going to turn it over to - then speak about the project and i'm going to turn it over to the tjpa to talk about united states funding project for the funding of the downtown rail extension. so to start with the city has a long-standing goal for the
8:20 am
planning around the type 2 diabetes project around the transit center and really a preliminary focus to fund the downtown rail extension and support the growth that will be coming to support those key infrastructure projects so the city a has been planning for 10 years plus starting with the development area and the adaptation of the district plan adapted in 2012 and ken mentioned the project was part of that approval process for the transit center plan. this map shows the area that sort of has been under planning in the attributing area the boundary go from market street in the north to fulton and then
8:21 am
to spear street to socket street on the west the redevelopment parcels that are currently owned and dispopsz of by ocii and in the jurisdiction that's part of the redevelopment area but the parcels are under the jurisdiction of the planning and the larger boundary is covered by the district plan the same boundary u boundary you'll see for the mel reduce district a contract as ken mentioned through the transit center significant now height increasing in the velocity up to one thousand feet and up to eight-hundred feet to support new transit oriented growth in the sort of most transit served
8:22 am
area in the region and to help fund the attributing e type 2 diabetes terminal that was a competitive streetscape plan that was down we're flushing you tell out with the costs estimates to carry the new number of huge people into the term and there was a significant planning for open space over 8 acres of open space and part of the plan was to adapt the implementation plan to help us pay our the facilities including the tjpa project there were a couple of different funding impact fees on the new development that was adopted as well as the development to propose the mel ruse district
8:23 am
we've been developing on the materials to form the mel ruse and that's what we're presenting to you today. so to go into a little bit of information it was proposed we're presenting to you today is fully consistent with what's in the plan in terms of the agreements and terms approved and adopted by the board of supervisors in 2012. just to mention a major development it per the planning code and the developer partners. existing development is not required to join 9 mel ruse district only on new prospers that pays for the downtown rail extension. so here's a map showing the
8:24 am
proposed district the initial parcels their shaded on a gray on the formation and includes the publicly owned projects and has as part of their at this time to join the district. there's a future ann satisfaction area and as parcels get dialed within the area and trigger that they'll vote into the district. one of the significant components is the rate of portion time how the tax a calculated and accessed on new development on new development it didn't apply to existing knows. the way it's set up the tax is based on a land use for sale and rental for office for hotel and
8:25 am
retail there's different rates in the document that apply as new development comes in and each rate excuse me. there's a base rate that's established and that rate escalates annually by the construction index that's used for impact fees and once the parcel gets the tax it goes up we're going to exempt affordable housing and the childcare spaces. a little bit more each project pays the tax for no more than thirty years in the district plan that acquires after 60 years when the project is complete a they'll get assessed
8:26 am
and the city developers the tax levy. the city principle promise they can prosecute a foreclosure that's for the bonded payments. so this shows the revenue we expect to generate call roll on the pipeline we project about $1.2 million that will fund for the public infrastructure and the rest is finance casts of costs it's for $1.4 billion that leaves video. your approving the district for the state law you're required to set a maximum bond authorization and to go
8:27 am
back and do that requires a vote of the property owners and we have people not living in the district by future we will so we want to leave room in this case it is needed. today, our approving a legislation not an onions the bonds that will have to go back after the first buildings are up and open not before 2015. in terms of what the revenues are spent open the landscape that are a number of transportation the downtown rail and this fiscal will go that's consistent in the implementation document. as part of this package we'll be
8:28 am
adapting a facilities agreement that would state 82.6 percent of the revenues go towards the tjpa project and that is consistent with what's in the trans center plans adapted documents. we're also a separate item that's not before you today is important to mention there's a property community benefit district that will pay for the maintenance of the facilities. this is a list of the facilities straight out of the city plan it's the capital facilities that would be paid for and lastly how is this governed and administered essentially the board approvals the bond authorization and it goes to the cities capital plan to project
8:29 am
the revenue working with the department of finance would help us to project the bond revenue and makes recommendations for the bond sales and we will develop a 5 year expenditure plan that goes through the capital process that goes to the board as well. this is done through our committee that includes tjpa and bart as well. here's an overall timeline the 3 protective actions for the board to take this is the protective action with intention to form and the landowner logic active action. and so to reiterate interests an approval the resolution to establish the vicinity and the resolution of intent to incur up
8:30 am
to $1.4 billion so before i turn it over to my colleague i want to incite from the concord group the method lodge they've helped to figure out the rates for the district >> tim. >> good afternoon commissioner tim with the group i run the san francisco office and have been involved in this for several years i've helped attributing to in fact the waters and buildings just quickly a little bit of background for the exercise really simply you know we're looking at a very generic look at san francisco buildings in this strict that are market
