(clapping.) so ladies and gentlemen, colleagues and friends and supporters san franciscans this is truly a wonderful day for us not only in the san francisco unified school district but in particular for us in san francisco to think that in the heart of bayview in the heart of one of the most dynamic communities in the city rich with history rich
11:57 pm
with passion, rich with artist address scientists and transitional leaderships of all strips a rich history we have a middle school in the heart of the bayview commemorate of the beautiful rich history in the community in which it resides (clapping) and i can think of no finer namesake than the mayor as he is effectively known willie lower-income brown yes (clapping.) i still remember a few months ago when we took him to see the rendering of what this would look like in his way asked deliberate questions about locations and color swatches, finishes, never quite asked if it was going to be marketable
11:58 pm
but we knew what he was think he was engaged and he always said i wanted to be useful to the families of the city not about i himself but about the community so thank you, mr. mayor for being our partner in the design of this school i want to point out if you look out this window in the right direction you'll see the willie loshgs brown bridge you might have heard me say the willie brown bridge to coverage brings people from the world 0 into this beautiful city of san francisco police commission san francisco and the willie l. brown middle school will take the students to all corners of the world to compressor explore

12:01 am
school that you are commemorate he couldn't be here but a shout h sweat shirt to carlos. >> so ladies and gentlemen, that where i go avenue scrip principle hobson has recognized our partners you've seen the staff and faculty the faculty and staff willie l. brown middle school we are count on you to crush it this year and future years when we said we were going to build this and have a stem school it is focused on a graduate profile the community has defined what is the graduate we want to produce and tracer the characterizations and if you think about everything that principle hobson to talked about it is landing aligned to our vision 2025 i will be very boost full unapologizely this is the
12:02 am
finest middle school stem middle school in the nation right here in san francisco it is (clapping.) and for me, i think what is more important ladies and gentlemen, is that in san francisco in san francisco's public schools we're absolutely not interested in school improvement and we're not interested in school district improvements we're not interested in that i'll tell you and propose to you if you look at every indicator school systems are working exactly the way they're designed to work their sorting kids and certain kids get opportunity and some don't and students have pathway to high paying jobs and sustainable liveable jobs we're not interested in proving that
12:03 am
system but system change and changing that system (clapping.) and one of the questions we're always asked it is beautiful rhetoric mr. superintendent that sounds really good but where the rubber meets the road ladies and gentlemen, look around this is where the rubber meets the road this is going to be the school it puts into effect how graduate appraisal for the 2 hundred and 16 students for the freshmen class for the pathway to be successful students in life, career and in the future and they're going to do that here at the willie l. brown middle school so we're interested this is our down up to that time to the city, to the bayview and country to educate our students particularly students not been served well by the system we call public education it changes here and it
12:04 am
changes today (clapping.) so all i have to say we're counting on all of us to crush it not only this year but in the future years in my final comments one of the questions we were ask the posed to the question about the willie l. brown middle school if you build it will they come in our system where parents have full choice where necessary send their children to school it is a valid question when we opened the doors to our 2 hundred and 16 students on monday be understood there is over a hundred students on a waiting list who choose to come to willie l. brown middle school and there wasn't room yet so do people want to come absolutely they want to come who you look at the classrooms of willie l. brown middle school it is one,
12:05 am
in fact, the most diverse middle school in san francisco it is the world right here in our neighborhood (clapping.) with that, i also want to thank one last person here as well he's been incredibly supportive he knows what he's a talking about and more importantly is ground in the realty of what it takes to support public education you can't have a world-class city without having a world-class public education system i want to thank our mayor, mayor ed lee for being here today and all your support (clapping.) so as and go forward ladies and gentlemen, i want you to get used to what this school looks like and celebrate in 10 years
12:06 am
we've built a new school that is the first of many to come the world is changing and we're going to meet that change whether a conciliated area of poverty and disengage the only solution is concentrated great education that's what we're proud here at the willie l. brown middle school. >> with that, welcome. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> our home is your home and i have the incredible honor of introducing our congresswoman who is fighting for us and equality in washington, d.c. and if you think our hills are tough you should see that hill we're glad we we have a fighter that keep in mind it is a pleasure to invite congresswoman jackie
12:07 am
speier (clapping.) >> thank you superintendent i want want you to stand up for a moment and i want you to see the incredible tie the superintendent has on that that matches the colors of the school willie brown watch out you've got competition in the style hear area mr. mayor to mayors family and the members of the school board and all the honored guests here what a privilege for me to join you today to cut this ribbon and announce the willie l. brown middle school now you may remember that there was an elementary school named after the mayor and now a middle school pea maybe someday if you live long enough a university named after you in fine design for fashion i'm not sure about
12:08 am
that by the one thing i'm sure about is that this school is going to educate young people people into the century this is the kinds of skills they need to truly achieve your now i'm humored by the fact the mayor and i wouldn't be accepted we know nothing about civil engineering and such some of the classes offered here it may have our namesake but i don't think you'll be admitted here mr. mayor so hundred and 64 years ago in 1851 senator broderick in sacramento introduced legislation for the first public school system and district in
12:09 am
california none other than san francisco (clapping.) so it's appropriate we're here today may the act it's been some 10 years brick and mortar before we've been in a situation? sterile school and beyond the kinds of stem classes that will be offended this is the only school in san francisco with a science lab a health clinic noble for the students but for the community and this particular facility here is not just an auditorium for the students but the community as well this is truly a community school and that the vision of the future and something we should attempt to achieve everywhere in this city i want to say a couple
12:10 am
of words about the namesake of the school you'll be happy to know more money was spent on this school than any middle school $43 million i was told and, in fact, i was also told i do my doctrines when the school as named an; isn't that right dianne feinstein she people i didn't do up the money so get ready mr. mayor there maybe some opportunity as the school enjoys it's growing pain for in many years in san francisco i was the guest speaker i will say his best voting record was when i was here i had the great opportunity to observe him in action every single day
12:11 am
and the young kids that are going to come here and learn about w0i8 lower-income brown will learn he transformed the legislation the city he's always been there taking care of those 90 in need and he's not forgotten his roots and not his sense of humor all has served him it's an honor to be with you mr. mayor as we death this school after you and look forward to accommodating this today (clapping.) next we'll have an assembly member david chiu
12:12 am
(clapping.) >> good morning are we having a good day today excellent i want to thank you first and foremost more being part of the syringe take a moment and look around we represent every strip of the city we come from the government and private sector and nonprofit we are san francisco and couldn't be more proud i'm delighted to be here in celebration of a school named after one of our city's leaped i'm here representing the state assembly with the assembly members but i'm incredibly humbled to representative the east side of san francisco it was represented for 31 years by a man we honor today but the
12:13 am
longest serving speaker the california state seeming anywhere willie lower-income brown junior this is your legacy this rebirth because this is a school that looks at as good as our suits and it is fitting we're here because this is a school that is going to be on the cutting-edge not have technology or stem education but how we imagine what education should be in the 15 you're a mayor that presided over the beginning of the evolution of the city as an international center the innovation no technology it is fitting we're here in the heart of the bayview bayview so much history and passion and community and we know a part of our city has had
12:14 am
so many challenges pear with the african-american community how many of you visited or spent time in the former willie brown school raise your hands i had a chance in the final weeks before that school closed it was hard to imagine the school we're in today but at a time of growing inequality we see all over the country and the state of california and, yes even here in san francisco it is appropriate that our city our san francisco leaders and school board and district has invested i'm quickly with jackie speier it wasn't 43 millions but more it was appropriate we have felt that because as i think many of
12:15 am
us often say when bayview succeeds when our children if the bayview succeed finally all san franciscans can be successful. >> (clapping.) so let me close with the following i know from this school we're going to have young boys and girls maybe their names are ed or jackie or richard that someday been the next mayor the city will be the next members of congress or the school educators someday a young boy who walks stlos those school doors maybe his name is willie maybe he comes from a background and comes to this school and go to the top high schools in san francisco and perhaps the next mayor or speaker of the soberly
12:16 am
or next good afternoon maybe the next president of the united states with that thank you for being part of this and it's my honor to introduce the next speaker someone that learned about leadership and management if the man we're heroin today someone that is committed to schools and families and kids that helped to build san francisco as a center of nation your 43rd mayor of the city and county of san francisco mayor ed lee (clapping.) >> wow. what a place to be at today on the eave of schools reopening we have an opportunity to be at the newest school named after my friend willie brown where's the mba trophy this is
12:17 am
where it should be base knowing the kind of initiatives of investments we're all making in the schools and teachers this is going to be a companionship school i know that i'm joking about an mba trophy that was talked about this morning that willie brown had as part of a radio show i predict and expect this school will earn the leadership of the administrator principle hobson's they'll earn more world-class trophies of excellence this is what we expect let me ask you or tell you i was recently asked a question mayor ed lee what's a good investment in san francisco and for a moment i paused
12:18 am
because i don't know whether he asked the question i was not the ceo of twitter even though my name gets associated or salesforce which i would love to be over and over myriad a success company that has shown up in the last few years to be tremblesly successful in the part of successive of the 36 percent employment in the city what's a good investment well, they may have been surprised i answered them truthfully the best investment you can make is to invest in our kids in san francisco that's the best investment. >> (clapping.) because the refinery will be
12:19 am
multiple decades of success more than just a few years of economic success for people it will be years of success of families growing up participating, innovating and kathy's that's why i'm happy to be in the room as i am all the time with the superintendent, with the elected school board and school board matched up with our city agencies, our department heads, people who themselves have invested in our city gridlock because we want everybody to be successful and this particular school is going to go well beyond equality it is going to be about total success if the city.
12:20 am
>> and for the individually selected teachers something that willie whispered in my ear all the teachers were individually selected you're going to find a lot of attraction to our pertain he is now, one of the 21 principles that i have adopted as part of middle grades with the salesforce initiative thank you to mark benny hoff and his passion for the city and he's about to receive one hundred thousand dollars innovation funds as being the principle in the middle schools something wife negotiated a while back with the other principles of middle schools because of the challenge they have not just in the bayview but the middle
12:21 am
schools are being challenged from the breakdown in parentsal engagement to the school sites to the teachers, and principles having to spend more and more of their times on less academics excellence and more on the quality of the school site we have it all here this investment of the willie l. brown middle school is a combination of many investments the city, the agencies, the foundations, the private companies we have the entire san francisco chamber of commerce a unite sf program to embrace the education 2 hundred 4 hundred technology companies that embrace all our public
12:22 am
schools and we have salesforce and a number of foundations that believed that if the mayor can focus a little bit on the most challenged grades they'll also make some serious investments well, they have and they have here not only with the offer $50 million of investments, with the very intellect or deliberate selection of the staff with the improvement to recruit the best talent out of chicago to offer his character and his enthusiasm for the kids and enticed the best companies to invest in the bayview and all the middle grades i say to you it is easier to answer that question more and
12:23 am
more in san francisco when people ask what is a good investment not necessarily the high-rise condo downtown or the buildings we'll build on market and van ness are market street there are plenty of those economic investments but i want a long term return on our investment i want to see our kids from the bayview be the department heads, the scientists, the ceo's, the police chiefs and fire chief of that great city i mean that you know we've acted on those are not entry promises those schools are here because the investments are real now we get to say to our kids we expect a return i'm going to look at those kids and we expect you to return on
12:24 am
our investment which means basically, you have to succeed we not going to let you fail we're going to embrace our success so i. here on a day of great happiness because it is not just the school season opening it is an opportunity to say once again associate what i've often been challenged within any careers in the past we don't just want people that operates things, willie before a knows the bureaucrats but wants people who produce excellence that's how we get the gold trim on city hall that's why we have the most noochtd companies coming to our city that's why mayor brown and i present those when 4 hundred mayors come to
12:25 am

1:13 am
in support and also won two matt championships was a regular rider of the 540 so that i couldn't verify but it makes sense televised in this discussion right thinking people came down on the side of russel in a team game he made his teammates better alicia is our version of bill russel in successful organizations like with sports teams goals are accomplished by working together per alicia focused and developed her role as chief of staff in collection with all of us to focus to achieve the agencies goals and objectives she focused
1:14 am
and galvanizing the resources within the organization to address them she tigerlessly brought individual and unit throughout the organization to get solutions to get a fair and equal attendance policy after most and most of tireless efforts she made the teammates betters as a leader shows without peer no knowing how to find the right person for the job mike henry if you'll stand up. way back when when we're at a crucial point trying to get a approval from a labor council to get proposition 8 to fund our future goal investments alicia suggested that mike henry might
1:15 am
be the guy to step up and advise the labor council mike is a terrific manager he's well liktd by all the employees and a good technical knows vehicles but i'm thinking labor council i don't know that's a lot to place michael in but to is a say mike next in order it out of park it was an example how she made her team better by working with us as a team as she also led the charge to pass the bond issue with her corroborate style she led meetings and visits for the
1:16 am
mayor's key counselor and advisors on the long term needs jonathan if you would john was one the staff alicia showcased to gain support for this key initiative yes. she made her teammates better led the process not only to establish the management fixture but ear skill and persistence i don't want to say he invented but pioneered the use of something called the action law. (laughter) now the action law has become not only a function it is your at every agency meeting regardless of division but it serves to reinforce the essential organizational core values of respect for others in
1:17 am
honoring our commitments again she made her teammates better alicia is the standard for treating everybody with respect there is no issue no grinds two small or insignificant that didn't require somebody looking at it and making sure we've dot all the i's and cross the t's and resolved it to that end stafrnd in for travis box is jonathan oh, there's travis i'm sorry traveling is recently been appoint at chief office and part of the duties to make sure he tracks down every issue to make sure we follow-up again incurring every feedback big or small just like mr. bill russel she makes her teammates betters i'm sure under different
1:18 am
circumstances alicia could run of the statistics like someone like wilting chamber lane but hats off to the we're far better for having the privilege to work with her and we'll miss her dearly (clapping) >> the board would like to thank and congratulate you for the grace you do our job very, very well, we wish you well. >> thank you very much i had all these things i was planning to say and touched by whatever you had to say thank you very much for that i was regretting as mentioned
1:19 am
earlier in 16 years i worked for the city i've been thinking about my past over the last 16 years and all the letters since 1999 people actually wrote letters they were hardcopy letters he was responding to and there were some of them were thanking us but the majority on other topics what i being the person i am i felt we should tell people why the bulls passes went up or the bus went out the service or the train door wouldn't open or the air conditioning was running full speed on the coldest day what happened on it day what i found was literally high-rise probably thousands of people who were working with extreme
1:20 am
commitment and daigs dedication to deliver transit city and circumstances is in which they especially\have the necessary resources and the bus was going out of service because it was thirty years old and you know, i tried to give them answers in the letters i left the mta inform about 8 years when i came back in 2012 obviously the mta has been bigger and more complex and has a broader mandate but what had remained constant there were literally thousands of people and mta everyday with complete dedication to deliver services for the city i've been proud to be most of you know them working on the projects i've been allowed to work on at the mta is special to me in i look at the whole cycle of my time with the city i started out by planning out for myself as
1:21 am
well as the many people writing letter what a lack of investment in our system will do in the last couple of years i've thank you for the opportunity to address the situation i was grateful to have had that privilege all of this going on particularly in the last 3 years i just want to acknowledge nothing i've done that would have been comfortable in isolation not the way things work i've tremendously enjoyed work for this board and appreciated our guidance and leadership and frankly our counselor in some of the different decisions and really appreciated it and really appreciate as leadership she's a clear vision of what the mta and challenged each of us and
1:22 am
entrusting me with work that is profound and impactful i also want to acknowledge my colleagues on the achieve team you you know i'm not sure we've been giving each other hi 5s but we worked well together and it is a group of people who just have again, this very deep commitment to serving san francisco and to making transportation really work in this ever changing city i'm grateful to have of the opportunity is it work with them and want to acknowledge my team like the others teams ranging from the team it came together on transportation 2030 and in transit and specifically wanted to mention 3 people that have a huge impact on the ability to move forward specifically sophia

1:25 am
march the next one this september we'll be on september 26th increasing service by 80 thousand hours had brown will impact the routes that effect about hundred and 40 thousands of our customers so a really big significant increase in particular increasing the frequency on the crowded crosstown route the 22 and the 24 and little 43 as well as adding some rush hour trains on the k t and m line so focusing on the increases on the lines that are carrying a lot of people we are always implementing a number of route changes you approved specifically the 7 x and the 18 and 47 those routes are schaveng on the 26 and the final service
1:26 am
in the spring of 2016 but this after march this is the next really big one that be tangible increase those people will notice i'm kieftd about that good news coming one quick follow-up from recent meeting when you protectiveed the 5 fulton u full name along mcallister one from the public or board whether we can look at the idea of turning the signal to flashing red and yellow over knitted our traffic engineers looked at that we think this is doable so we'll test that when we install and see if this works and make adjustments as needed next some good news in terms of
1:27 am
dancing vision zero vision zero as you may know is built upon a few 3 legs of a stool making the design streets and enforcement that is the police department but your parking control officers and education is the thirds e of the stool and while i think everybody agrees that education and awareness is really critical in terms of changing behavior because we'll never be able to design out ever instance of bad behavior behavior changes is essential but everybody or everybody believes that outreach and education is essential but maybe not quite clear how to do that effectively you'll change behavior so we created along with the department of public
1:28 am
health walk sf and police department other partners in partnership of program called save streets sf it stops are here we've talked about that when we rolled it out earlier this year those are the billboards you've seen on building but particularly on the buses the program had numerous types of outreach but rather than throw it out there we tried to take an analytical approach with great support from the folks at the department of public health really targeted this so we can measure we choose 8 directs 4 we were going to target and 4 with a control group we tried a number of enforcement specific enforcement having folks out there with information the ads
1:29 am
on the buses and elsewhere to cut to the chase we actually were able to measure improvement in terms of driver compliance at the four sgrshgs as compared to the other 4 actually, the 4 where we had the focus was a compliant increase of three or four perpetrating not huge during that time we had a decrease we can't explain bend they were 10 percent apart in regards to jooeldz to pedestrians one of the primary collision factors we're trying to attack in vision zero we did a survey of residents to determine whether this was reaching people and what we found that 40 percent remembered
1:30 am
seeing one the slogans from the campaign or hearing simon smoking gun something on tv and those that saw those slogans are more likely to think they can do something about the problem the key philosophy the good news we're not that only be able to make an impact on the intersection it demonstrates with the right kind of prescription of outreach we can achieve behavior change we'll be using the lessons as we scale and add what can from the budget to get hundred and 65 thousand dollars or so to put targeted our outreach strategy that is associated with vision zero so but it was great work and john knox white was the lead but
1:31 am

market street railway you know on the way of the exhibit but we'll reach out. >> anyone from the public. >> mr. chairman none is interested to address the matters provided by the directors of transportation moving on this the other advisory committee recorded nun today and public comment are considered to be routine and may be acted upon by a single roll call vote of the commission. we have one speaker herbert wiener. >> good afternoon mr. wiener herbert wiener i wish to address the question of equality as stated for ever bicycle rider one car taken off the road well, for every passenger on muni several cars taken off the road imagine if all those
1:39 am
passengers drove well, the bicyclists are getting things in return thaig they're getting bike lanes and all sorts of goodies and what are the passengers getting in return now it is true they got free bus pays for seniors and teenagers okay but also they're having takeaways the demands will be reduced to blocks people are on injury duty not able to take the 47 bus line to the hall of justice this slows down the process significantly in my opinion also the 3 that will not run by san francisco general hospital any longer i don't think this is equalities at all those are takeaways and
1:40 am
basically the nitty-gritty passengers don't have police clout beehives do the board has to take into consideration it would have been simple with the transit project now known and muni forward to simply maintain the existing routes and added buses to the heavy runs not that many housing of planning now takeaways from the neighborhood i think we'll be severely impacted you look at the muni transportation map of 198095 percent are covered by transportation which makes it assessable and now we're reducing accessibility this is being done to the tune of billions of dollars now, if you say no resources foyer having the buses i don't think so prop a and all
1:41 am
the money that mta is getting certainly can do that if you don't want to have mta stand for more train wrecks ahead you better address that with the disabled and seniors who will be severely impacted by the bus alteration and bus deletions and consolidation of bus stops we're heading towards this disaster moving on towards over the cliff. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (calling names). >> those are this only people that turned in speaker cards. >> good afternoon mr. lee. >> good evening tom nolan e tom nolan and members now is a dangerous nationwide running the taxi local business becoming the big major giants in the country find a way this preservation convention coming you have to

1:51 am
20-year capital plan will presents the item. >> good afternoon, sir. >> thank you ed reiskin and thank you to tom nolan and members of the board i'm dart with the planning group with the sustainable streets division i'm here to walk you through the latest workshops the 20-year capital plan all right. so in summary i'll cover the why do we create a capital plan and the methodology and how we develop the plan and how we use it going forward so the first step is why do we have the capital plan probably helps to start what is the capital plan it is our one document they pull together all at capital needs so the investments in the capital
1:52 am
program we have a good accounting of ever that the city and agency could invest in one the key considerations here is that it is not con trained by any financial or physical resources so it is really looking at what types of investments could benefit the transportation system irrespective of the money we'll be able to bring in during this time period and the second point is about prioritization so we know which or are the most important based on the strategic plan the sfmta strategy plan and then the other point why it is important to have the capital plan it provides us with a tool to communicate what the city's transportation needs are at a local level, regional level and also at a national level it
1:53 am
indicates the level of investment that could be put to use here in san francisco >> now the capital plan is based a number of other plans studies analysis and as i mentioned the foundation of that is the statistics plan but a lot of the needs which are identified in the capital plan come from other studies which is the ones shown here we have the pedestrians safety strategy and the bicyclist streaming our repair assessment it indicates how much to reinvest in the system and the real estate division, community program all of those others studies funnel into this capital plan so it is really the collection of all the needs that have been identified.
1:54 am
through those individual studies and then in turn the capital plan serves as a basis for a lot of things that we contribute to the most immediate the basis for the capital improvement program so the capital plan is not financially constraints the mayors the fund for the upcoming 5 years we use the combination of capital plan and the cit to to the city's 10 year capital plan it is adopted by the board of supervisors every two years and a chartered on transportation which contribute to at the county level the transportation authority provides the san francisco transportation plan not only the sfmta but also the regional
1:55 am
provides like bart and caltrain we mentioned a few times the mayor's task force is one of the foundational documents for understanding what the investment needs for san francisco are and a lot of the projects and programs that were identified in 2030 were a direct result of information and finally at the regional level the municipality transportation put together the planned area so the region of transportation priorities this is this was last adopted three years ago we're in the beginning stages updating that plan this capital plan update will serve as a 4 o'clock for the
1:56 am
update to the regional plan as well so the next set walk you through how we develop the capital plan and establish the priorities it is really simplified to 3 step process where we develop the criteria by which we'll evaluate and prioritize those needs so the starting point is the strategic plan and the four goals within it are so and within each of those the goals we develop criteria that specifically are used to evaluate the benefits the project will have in meeting some of the strategic plan goals they mirror the objectives within the strategic plan but been at a later date to apply to
1:57 am
the capital investments won those 4 goals we've identified the 11 criteria the next step we went through to determine out of 11 how much wealthy should be given our executive team went through a process represented here they compare each the criteria against those each other and indicate whaich ones are more important in this case we're showing risk management versus improving the quality those are further into goal four in the strategic plan so they evaluate those and we come up with the
1:58 am
distribution of weigh like a hundred point scale a perfect project has to safer the strategic needs we get hundred points goal one in red is the safest and security goal roughly 28 percent of the goal or 28 points out of a hundred the largest component is goal two that is the transit goal 47 percent and goal 3 the financial and environmental sustainability this is 7 percent and the workforce workplace goals has 18 percent this sets up the points possible that the projects can be evaluated then we go to throw the process of capital needs this is an example from our accessibility program in this project in
1:59 am
particular is to replace a list this is on geneva with a mraurm that requires less appliances and provides you know more assess over time so we collect kind of a basic description of the needs and why it is important to this system and a rough order of progress for those so for each of those capital needs a to that's been identified we get a small team of the agency experts together and they go through a process of rating those capital needs against the criteria that the executive team establishes with that, same example of platinum on santa fe and geneva we're looking at the assess criteria and the 40 members that rates this project all felt this was a
2:00 am
major benefit to accessibility so then harking back to the pie chart that is the system assess 13 points out of a hundred this will get 13 points for the access criteria and we go through the 11 criteria for each project and then have our rating so then this charting shows that project in context with the other and can be made in the accessibility program in this case that that list replacement project will receive 78 out of a hundred points it is nearly impossible for a project to receive hundred points the highest rated project in the capital plan was other than 80 points so the scale is not meant to be you know out of l
