8:00 pm
>> will you feel comfortable with what you hear common sense what i was going to say with respect to when the applications occur due to bio diversity or natural area plans i feel like hesitate a think enter departmental sores with rec and park i know with the urban forestry chronicle eir council there was a four hour meeting the year before there was a bigger set of decisions we can play that roll in but ultimately i feel happens symsomewhat separate and apart from how did the pesticides with use like the will you please that is on the table we'll leave them alone and
8:01 pm
let them since in carbon that policy within make its way into the way we apply those pesticides we'll be applying them less the more will you please they'll sing the carbon more of a balance from what the evasive and some of the considerations i feel your list gets applied with our partners at different department and the workers he you don't i don't think if we write that language those national area plans will super keyed our element for the to say with he can't put guiding promises a great opportunity you know because we've talked about that having the national areas conversation and the
8:02 pm
mifgs /* mifgsz moifgs and certainly ways we address climatic change commissioner wald basically i want to thank you for that comment josh because i think that it is absolutely correct i think that we should sort of strait if i thotify tho weird may not be the right word but the unique things of the department of environment a great many mandates by the city and county of san francisco and very little of the authority to actually indicator those mandate
8:03 pm
our work depends on almost entirely working with the city family to achieve the dowels from the board of supervisors has set this is a perfect example of how that comes together what we have i think we have more i think for lack of a better word leadership on what i call the operational issues is that the word you you were using commissioner bermego. >> i think the implementation. >> right we can get a handle on those in a shorter period than maybe get a handle on the other value issues and that we should start with those and then progress to the next set of issues would be my feeling
8:04 pm
here thank you. >> and let me say i'm not adverse and actually as a member of the public has as seven i think i'll probably of time to go to the commission meeting to the policy committee meeting commissioner wald meeting i think that is awhile we had a conversation of the eucalyptus program all actually. >> was it actually, you misses a meeting and there it goes but make an opportunity to get to the bottom of that i think we're getting to that point address maybe a place for us in that you know to internet ourselves both that program we will work with the staff and had a good conversations he be respectful of the working and thinking i think from is as species that
8:05 pm
may have come latter in the spectrum but here and helping us to doing everything we can to fight climatic change we have a we have to really, really think this introduce so what we unless fallout conversation perhaps we can get a motion to amend our resolution at page 2 line 190 add did words until the march 22, 2016 commission meeting after the phrase r rp and semicolon commissioner woo ho and second from commissioner omotalade and mr. rodriguez. >> as long as that motion covers the additional amendment it appendix c that commissioner
8:06 pm
wald originally commented as well agency part ever passage. >> significantly i think. >> yes. significant would be my preference but i thought it was serious. >> and significant about inserting the word reflex after fire hazards it is missing a word. >> that goes on allowed use tenth. >> contrary - fire hazard risk >> okay. so do it by the book can we perhaps can the maker of the motion withdraw and seconded
8:07 pm
so can question get a motion to i've yes director raphael. >> i have a question for the commissioners to consider look at page 3 sort of page 2 and 3 the last errors resolve to provide the prelims updated to the commission through the commissions policy committee at it regularly scheduled july 11th to you want to keep that an implementation are change that to february what do you want to do. >> i was thinking of keeping it as an implementation but easier to say that an update on something at its february 7th and march whatever right whatever march. >> it is not february 7th. >> 9.
8:08 pm
>> 9 i'll move. >> the next two are february 9th and march 22. >> commissioner wan appointment you'll want to wait until our march meeting rather than doing it twice. >> that's true. >> why not say march what was the date? >> the next policy meeting is march 14 a the viral meeting to march 2. >> with that will okay. >> can we leave it as implementation update. >> it gets to the crux of it the prelims what is approved along with the elements we're talking about but obviously the conversations are happening and with more time we're hopeful so can we get a motion to amend the resolution at line 19 to add the
8:09 pm
words until the march 225, 2016 commission meekly on like this 19 between the semicolon and page 3 line to to replace july with. >> mr. president, the typo. >> oh, yes, thank you. >> as well as to make a third change at. >> line 16. >> line 16 on page one to write kerosine car share allergic rather than car share gunmen and fourth onramp creatinine to add the words significance between a and public safety and to add risk after the first instance of fire
8:10 pm

8:11 pm
brown before mark comes before you oh, my gosh it is hard i have to change gears talked to the change sorry about that so the total budget for the department of the environment is about $22 million and there was a very extensive discussion about the budget the department budget and last operations committee leave detail and a wonderfully robust conversation and tonight is different so tonight is taking that detail looking much higher level and forecasting where our strengthens and weakens and our streams for moving forward so what you'll see together 19 tonight is roughly a balanced budget this budget is not final one more month to working on
8:12 pm
that brother we turn it into the mayor's office and in that time we'll be working around the ends but we will particularly be paying attention to one program area that has right now a deficit and that is our environmental justice program it is running about one and $67,000 dollars short for the 2016-2017 and what is also different about the budgeted a 2 year budget so the things we know this year we don't there are some things we can forecast bigger challenges for the second year the budget for example, the environmental justice things gets worse not better so challenges ahead of ourselves we have strategies in place between now and the ends of thirty days from now before we turn this budget in to try to address the gap baptise environmental justice that is
8:13 pm
work we still need to do so i'm confident that budget will come together at the end of the day around general fund question we can talk about but like to introduce mark brown in our admin team rep his boss unable to be here and walk you through through the budget at as high-level different than the policy committee you'll see clearly where we are in process and where we are in terms of needs and gaps mark. >> welcome. >> thank you, thank you. >> are you going to tell us about pesticides don't. >> well, first of all, thanks for your patience. >> inch learned a lot. >> i do want to say thank you to director raphael and members
8:14 pm
of the board and within the things i'll start my presentation will not be as uplifting but i don't have any coffee or coffee cups to offer you okay. good. >> so sfgovtv. >> sfgov can you turn on the slide. >> okay. >> so again, i am pleased to have this opportunity to present our departments budget i want to piggyback on what director raphael said that you know at this point this is our first year with a fixed
8:15 pm
two year budget however, you know when you say later on baptise slide you'll see over 45 percent of budget comes from grant funding that is impossible - oh, sorry. >> okay 45 percent of our bhubt comes from the grant funding that is impossible probation officer predict that far away to 2017-2018 will be the same as 2014 with 3 percent across the board adjustment to account for it non-salaries and cost increases therefore that budget will be on a high-level and focused on
8:16 pm
2016-2017 so pretty sure the agenda right now is the high-level summary a fiscal picture of 2016-2017 with our expense our revenues for funding sources and staff then show you the change in fiscal year 2015-2016 and key dates where the budget process and the outgoing questions. >> this slide here. >> okay so as director raphael said stated - the total draft budget for the for the next fiscal year is 2 sorry $22 million dollars grant continue to be the largest
8:17 pm
source of revenue with $10.2 million no sorry about that grant to be the largest source of revenue at $10.2 million followed by the bond and $2.3 million spent by program areas as you can see from the chart below the four largest sf project that energy outreach of 3.9 and the top of 82 percent of departments budget our main funding sources are
8:18 pm
impound and other work orders. >> our impound fund first here you'll see a breakdown of the fund per programs we still have 39 percent the oasis is thirty percent and other column is 19 percent those are the impound fund. >> the next one of the grant fund this slide indicates 80 percent of the grant is sported by energy related projects those projects include energy watch and step upside down and others
8:19 pm
our other development fund the work orders as you can see many of the programs are receiving some level of work orders from the other development continue to investment from the other city agencies reflect the important work at the illustrate a good cross department collaboration. >> our staffing f t count remains stable would within fte in 2016-2017 and that's really to implement the disposalable ordinance
8:20 pm
almost all guys change in 2015-2016 from fiscal year 2016-2017 revenue is projected overall increase with 8 percent coming in grants and city departments so the increase of the 2 percent of impound and 13 percent in grants and increase of 6 percent if wor workn work orders. >> budget key data capture of them already january 26th we are discussing and february 22nd of the balance the department budget to the mayor may 11 commission operations committee budget update and may a san
8:21 pm
francisco budget hearing and june - july 29th the final budget adopt by the board of supervisors and at this point that concludes my presentation. i want to thank you all and i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> that i schizophrenia or have a lifeline to joe. >> thank you thank you. >> all right. questions commissioner wald. >> okay. so i'm kind of redundant to say this but this budget look very different than the budget we approved in the past unless i'm missing something. >> are you looking for more
8:22 pm
detailed. >> yes. much nor detailed baptise past so we did. >> i don't do budgets to you like this better (laughter) it has to do with with numbers but what happened to the other budget it is this is a two year budget or what. >> good point we did present more detailed information at the - can you i commissioner stephenson. >> yeah. we remember through everybody in everything baptise form baptise past and went through the operations committee meeting lashing larry last week with the orientation of the department and why count from one place to another and introduced the time if we covered it in the event we get the recommendations it is
8:23 pm
approved and forwarded here he feel confident but, yes this looks at dramatic but we saw exactly from the operation committee meeting. >> i will just say, i rely on the operations committee to do exactly what you had told me you did i'll vote on this with a clear conscious. >> we have a lot of questions. >> director raphael and yeah. we - there was a lot of discussion and the people you expect to show up for the meetings were at the those meetings people having asking pointed questions i last week about the format a favor flavor where there is no general fund that we get most of our money from grants and frankly, we've never broke out the overarching
8:24 pm
principles as you see before us this year is clear and easy it almost looks to good to be true that is in great respect because jennifer our new deputy director wants to make this more clear and getting david to come and help working with joe and mark and the team to clarify so it is simple and clear and i think that allows us to as a commission to have an appropriated level of discussion as a full commission over the priorities and our gaps and strengths where we want to focus our attendance as a department. >> wounding one thing i'll add i know we went into detail at operation probable between many meeting follow-up meeting with
8:25 pm
the portal urban greening steering committee a scam with a conversation and a lot of conversation about community gardens there is the model for community garden it is written up for who knows how many times called alderman i didn't farms i met another founder and executive director of farms put her on the spot the great alice great round of applause (clapping.) and if this is going to be part of kind of the conversation in partnering within the permanently and the other side is 280 to build up the model i embarrass myself with i met
8:26 pm
alice i said we're proud to support you and support alderman i didn't farms and she's to the point she said you don't anywhere i was surprised as far as i know the farms we were worki farms how we might consider you can within the realm of the different programs reentering the person not just urban augmentation - thinking about this conversation but jobs and it is education for seniors and youth and environmental justice and a community i want to talk
8:27 pm
about the items in public housing converting alamany the city and our department have a important part i'll curiosities when is the last time we worked with alamany farms how we are thinking about partnering in urban i don't know we have the answers but i'll suggest it would be lovely to have the director to come to a policy meeting and talk about the community gardens and how it fits in with more information on that project >> rodriquez for the record in
8:28 pm
a in addition to the financial information about the development support we'll provide the policy commission members the board of supervisors passed legislation that consolidated the city's approach to imagining farms an urban garden in rec and park they've been the lead agency on behalf of all of us hired an individual we invited them to the policy committee and updated the commission on the work they're doing we could loop that conversation the city is trying to take a holistic approach with engagement so our response will be both from the departments prospective and our financial contributions from the program as well as looping in rec and park that is taking the lead on behalf of the city on this.
8:29 pm
>> okay. thank you. >> i would like to add to that i have i do a lot with urban and have seen the work that rec and park has done but also to our credit in the southeast pretty much i've seen the department of environment i want to acknowledge that and also say, i really want to hear and the public to hear the work we're doing around this as well. >> thank you commissioner omotalade and guessing how relentless team has to do with commission on a different point shall you wait. >> no commission do you have a point. >> direction please tell me a different time regarding the
8:30 pm
budget i'm on the operation i understand one has this is having enough money for the grant like maternity leave and how is that being addressed and can we do anything to be helpful i was told perhaps an effort to go to the city at some point for coverage for those kind of hr dices. >> thank you for that question yes, that's under the circumstances not rescued baptise budget document for where our target when we did our risk assessment we talked about that last year at this time we look at structural problems with the fact we are heavily i didn't granted fund and grants don't coffer those kickoff overhead costs like maternity leave a
8:31 pm
potential challenge so our intention to revisit and have those conversations baptise mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> aptise mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> ptise mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> tise mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> ise mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> se mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> e mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> i mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> n mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> t mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> h mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> e mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> mayor's office and as to how you can help stay tuned. >> okay. >> the president is taking a break. >> thank you. i would say the budget reflects the one risk director raphael that is very large projection for there in grant funding you guys got district attorney great grant department i'm not going to question that projection i just want to say that i think we will be willing
8:32 pm
to help if any way when those entrants come through. >> as some of us have relationship with these funders baptise bay area and some beyond and he would encourage you to think about the possibility of having sort of the well, not third party but we're cereal part of operation but as valid oversees and advocates as predicament that's it a wonderful idea
8:33 pm
commission it involved the community that is a great example how to take advantage of you and like to invite you many of you work in nonprofits analytic i'm looking around almost everybody but one works in nonprofit if you have ideas for grants and think of projects that are out there that the department can at that particular time in so great point thank you. >> commissioner wald you just spoke thank you commissioner bermego where do the grant come from are they federal or state or what grants. >> so if you look at the grant fund there is no numbers on each
8:34 pm
page i'm afraid scroll through for the grant funds you'll see that 80 percent the grants are given to the energy program so those are a combination of what the past the pg&e money not ours automatically we have to apply and a lot of the grantdz are department of emergency services so government federal and state in the says case of energy they're coming on the local level they're coming from the state california energy commission and from the department of energy with you look at the other grants 20 percent the transportation grants are generally government grants. >> as you may know especially you work in nonprofits many foundations have invitation to
8:35 pm
give money to public agencies is the actual dollars from foundations while we treasure them they're small in terms of the overall percent and the areas you see the foundation grants radio like environmental justice and building where we are able to harness the foundation. >> expiration. >> two questions first do we have any prospects i know the environmental justice and second you'll probable talk about it later what the the general fund to make the same things the structural deficit is there is questions where the people to city attorney's office also on the tackles table.
8:36 pm
>> your second question we are working on this right now that is what we're going to spend next week month hammering out to see where we got rejected and what case how can we learn when g didn't happen last year so in the case the attorney's fees comments are worth every penny. >> and the structural we're may look at environmental justice we're looking at where our holes are basically baptise budget that is in process and that one we may very well come to you for advise in terms of for combranls for environmental justice i'm sorry that annie is not here probably didn't think the meeting would be late stayed for as long as she could the environmental
8:37 pm
program is asking about value the most important thing for a small program in terms of numbers of people that have the biggest impact right now working on pesticides and public housing and working o on the legal dump their grant making and look at it at energy and energy efficiency in solar and electric revokes it is an exciting time for the environmental justice program the broadening the prosecutes periodic historically is making staff $13 million from a grant settlement he over time they are a grants writing staff and now the beautiful thing about that transition is that they're not restricted to the bay area but all environmental justice in their grant making it is a great time to be in that
8:38 pm
program the opportunities and challenges >> other questions? this is an action item we're requested to approve the budget and then before we do let's hear in the public public comment on item 7 >> mr. brooks. >> san francisco clean power advocates for california energy choose your city and county of san francisco green party is first of all, want to second the increasing alamany farm that is important and wanted to raise and specific on the pg&e public i i don't think that is called the public charge but a new but especially from you
8:39 pm
commissioners staff probably is aware. >> on top of that but the san francisco public works has worked hard for years and maybe should have worked harder on getting the public works to allow communities to get assess it all of the energy funds that pg&e collects on their bill for the states for those purposes instead of part of those funds if you were able to work with the sfpuc to get awe hold to push the puc you'll have more money to work would be aware of that for the future. >> thank you. >> other comments. >> executive director alice
8:40 pm
contractor i'm executive director of management corporation for 3 seven years and been the executive director for alamany farms for 3 seven years i want to tell you guys since 2008 no support with the department of environment don't get me wrong i love the department but had support and help you can say that annie we talk all the time and annie was here earlier and was glad annie came out and supported me with any youth and teaching classes and helped me out teaching class on wednesday with my youth so i came across $50,000 and with supervisor campos i said annie i need you

8:42 pm
of the president and department for discussion and action. >> so colleagues that is the two-fold we have elections that have to honor the president for past 3 years and i will no longer be on the commission as of close of this meeting and we have talked about i think last time the kind of making sure that we're grooming leaders and cult elevating leadership and making sure we have leadership opportunity for everyone to grow in this commission i was fortunate to start in a leadership really in transition at the commission and we have a lot of opportunities for lead and committee shares and officers here at the commission but i would like to as president
8:43 pm
nominate someone i had the chance to work with as department and wanting during the search for a director that was a national search and fortunate led us to the best candidate our director debbie reaping and been able to work on the zero waste pilot program this was her idea when we had tea to download and talk about ideas and she said to push i saw the potential she could do in terms of our efforts to have sustainable funding through did general fund in our efforts to do that last year so i'd like to nominate department sarah with an to be the president of the commission and the rule is we
8:44 pm
have it somewhere if you're nominated to let us know >> my great honor to serve on the commission i definitely really thankfully to work with president that has a strong vision and mission to make sure that we serve the communities and bring meaning to the community and definitely had great initiative mind and great leader a great honor you nominated me to be the president which is very hard to follow, however, i happily decline the nomination it is will be a lot of traveling work related and family related, and, secondly, the organization that i am at executive director going through a major transition we actually
8:45 pm
got a granted through a lot of reorganization and also a lot of strengthening sfrar infrastructure and practices research our organization that will take you a lot of time so i don't feel if i can't put in 100 percent for this commission it is definitely any due diligence that i can't take the leadership role 0, however, i thank you for the nomination to serve as the vice president and i have to say with the comment i want to encourage the share leadership that is what brought me to be vice president it opened any eyes and spiefrtd beme as a commission and as vice president with that said, i hope that a new commission is also the commission step up to consider
8:46 pm
this position as well but thank you seniors i'll miss you. >> i'll nominate smoking gun commissioner bermego to consider the position. >> first of all, i'm still in denial that commissioner arce is leaving so if i have to deal an honor to serve on the commission and though i believe in stepping up and know that there are so many challenges with you're a public servant i've worked in public service and certainly the work is critical i think the chair requires a lot of time and
8:47 pm
contempt i don't feel confident i can provide but happy for part of leadership by the chair requires a commission we are dealing with a lot of struggles barry any other commissioner i know we have commissioner wan and commissioner stephenson i think the next person baptise ordered i've worked with them i would you know nominate city of oakland to consider. >> commissioner omotalade you've been nominated. >> (clapping.) >> that's awful
8:48 pm
wow. (laughter) you have me choking on water i'll be happy to entertain that in commissioner bermego will consider joining as vice president. >> you're on. >> with that said, that's a little known rule a joint nomination so actually so the commissioner omotalade do you accept the nomination. >> i think it is - >> there wasn't the first. >> okay so following in josh. >> the crazy thing i was size 13 but baptise past year size 14 shall i see a doctor regarding shoes. >> commissioner omotalade as someone baptise area of where i
8:49 pm
think we had about 5 nomination that lands on me relay lishdz the opportunity i've seen the idea we have chairs and leadership positions i know you will work and i guess do i still get to say have a say city attorney i have i think you can do a great job and you know one of the things that we talked about is that our engagement of historically disfranchised with the environmental work and creating of jobs isn't that your job description with the blue green. >> it absolutely is.
8:50 pm
>> commission discuses so a nominee maybe we can take i don't think we have the ability for joint nomination commissioner bermego discussion on our nominee other nominations discussions? >> i see a stack of no body anybody thoughts? commissioner wald >> i don't think we should a discussion but vote for the nominated individuals and thank her very much. accepting this position >> is there a second. >> second if commissioner hoyos i see anthony visitacion valley did he see. >> yes. .

8:54 pm
our last ton of materials went to al tampa landfill if so important it marks the ends of a very link contract and the beginning of a new one a landfill contract that took a lot of time and effort of staff and was fairly contest but most of those objections have fallen by the way side and a strong contract that will encourage zero waste and encourage us not to send things to landfill so i'll excited about that i do want to call out the energy watch program within the staff was at a merging and left hand to commission from the california public utilities commission peter man give a talk about and our staff person was
8:55 pm
motivated she went to up to the commission and love to tell you about our program and said, of course, and took her on a tour that i think pretty much blew the commissioners mind that is possible to do with energy efficiency and helping lower-income neighborhoods taken to an affordable housing facility and a local market that and the ordinances and is project sponsors gave tare testimony of appreciation that was powerful for that commission to understand that public goods charge money or whatever is in good hands the other milestone i'll give you a head up supervisor mar and the board of supervisors adapted or put in place a energy efficiency
8:56 pm
coordinating committee run by the sfpuc with us providing the technical assistance nothing has happened for various reasons we step up to the plate and now anthony here and now we'll have capability and told supervisor mar we will take it so the first meeting is in march we can't do that all the time but this case we found a way so i'm excited so you know that's enough for now i'll say a lot going on in affordable housing in public housing and this is something that is a real focus of ours as we bring environmentalist into san franciscans and i encourage to look the director's report you'll see example of our staff
8:57 pm

8:58 pm

8:59 pm
filled baptise years it will be a real kind of thing to help him build out his legacy for strong environmental justice baptise beginning of his career to be able to side that bring home the department and convene that meeting and have him there and share the history would be a great thing to have happen so this good news director raphael. >> any duration public comment. >> yes good evening. i'm make that quick eric brooks san francisco clean energy advocate time to highlight on the criterion energy the aspect of clean energy we now have reached a momentum of reached a
9:00 pm
momentous day of battling clean power on may 1st and the two things that i want to impress on the environment and commission about the nun is that we're doing the groorts organizers and the advocates and your staff and the san francisco public utilities commission staff are going to be doing a lot of strong outreach to get people to sign up for cleanpowersf which if you choose bariatric green theo percent less than penguin and 100 percent complaen if you want to spend for money and watching sfgov go to clean power one word and sign up if you're a pg&e customer one thing we want you to be conscious there is a partnership
9:01 pm

10:41 pm
purely disagreement between me and the board of supervisors sometimes can create some good solutions but if people resort to violence to resolve their it didn't make any difference to make their presence known or try to get something that is not going to solve anything that worsens the situation for everyone so i want to take a big that, of course, because this country as rudy indicated with the call from the president there is a lot of violence under our entire country and the bay area is no different and we got to reach out to more young people reach out to not so i don't know people that resort to violence we can't that that as an alternative we'll do our best working with the police department and along with the

11:10 pm
i often said and will continue saying i love the city, i love it as much of any of you and also with you. i love that we never run from the challenges. we confront them with our progressive optimism and something that has come to define our city in all of us. we tackleed a whole lot this last 5 years and some the most complicated and intractable challenges remain and i ran for a second term so we can work on them together. foremost among the challenges wrun we struggled with for decades is homelessness. let there be more doubt, the collective best effort like service providers like all you in the room today have certainly made a difference. i know that
11:11 pm
because i have been paying a attention to this for many years. while i may be a little silent sometimes, i watch, i talk to people, i engage and once in a while i might be lucky enough to hand out a key. you are the ones, everyone in the room, you are the ones giving the hor heroic rfts at front line staff on a midnight shift at the shet ers and do the outreach and are case managers with a challenging loud. or you may be the one cleaning up the streets so people might have a cleaner street to be on because that is the only place they have. the best evidence of all of the work collaboratively is the
11:12 pm
over 20,000 formally homeless people living indoors. living independently and with the social and emotional support that they need and that the needs that are met with our city services or they might be back in their home towns. but, despite this we haven't eliminated homelessness. as we house and serve thousands, they are replaced by new thousands. people, people who fall in homelessness here, people sent from other states or people who arrive every day seeking a better life in our city. as a result we continue to have people living on the street, under the freeway, in tents on the sidewalk and some even without tents. all together,
11:13 pm
more than 3500 people are street homeless in san francisco. human beings. human beings with hopes, with fears, susceptible to cold and rainy weather. human being who deserve or compassion. we know there are nearly the same number of people without homes that are living in our shelter, treatment programs or temporary situations. friends , this isn't a healthy way to live, you know that and i know that, especially if children are a part of that family. it is not just a growing problem here in san francisco by the way and we all know that as well. major cities across our country, la, new york, honolulu, seattle and more and the state and federal governments offer us too little assistance. that's why next
11:14 pm
week i'll join at least 5 other mayors on the west coast and our federal government representatives to explore federal funding opportunities and policy changes in the area of homelessness. i know we look at the streets sometimes and the encampments and the depth and complexity the problem jz to some it all might feel hopeless, but as your may frr the next 4 years i'm optimistic because today in san francisco all of the ingreedgents of success are here to end homeless for thousands of our fellow citizens. thanks to a historically strong economy we do have resources. we certainly have creativity and know we got the passion. for our serviceers providers
11:15 pm
and city staff, we have the energy that is required. we have public support to try new more effective approaches. but you know what is missing? what is missing is the ingredient lacking for generations, it is what we call, real cooperation. we can't solve street homelessness, but it will if we want to , it will require cooperation. we have seen this cooperation at the place called, the navigation center at 1950 mission street. when community providers work with city departments, when the private sector in the surrounding community all come together with us, we actually are creating a national model for ending homelessness. so, next year we are going to
11:16 pm
do something bold that skills up the cooperation and coordination this requires and we see at the navigation center all of that happening across the board on homelessness. i will call apauss all the departments to work together with our community based organizations, advocate and national expert to ert change and reform or government and other, and will create a department with a mission to end homelessness here in san francisco. [applause] i begin by not just making-i know people have worked on this for years and want to acknowledge first the great work of our past mayors, feinstein and agnos, mayor jordan and
11:17 pm
willie brown, of course gaveen newsome. i want to build on each of their legacies for addressing homelessness. of course our former supervisor alota talks about passion. she dedicated a life time to the work and want to say thank you for being here and thank you for being a trusted advisor and advocate and one that reminds everybody we got to get to better solutions. i want to also acknowledge the good work of our former supervisor bevan dufty and director of hope for the last years for tireless work with service providers and client to move people into better lives. i learned a lot with bevan, but i felt his passion avenue day he has been on the job. and today, building on the work that came before we begin a new agency, a
11:18 pm
agency with a budget and mandate to solve homelessness. we'll bring together under one roof the multitude of homeless outreach, housing, shelter and supportive services that exist across many different departments. over the last 20 years, we increased our spending on homelessness because the crisis got worse. but because we didn't have a central department for homelessness we layered program upon program across a dozen different department said and then we expected the better outcome. no one agencyies mission was homelessness and today we fix that. with greater coordination we expect better results, more efficiencys and deep er accountability. to make this new department a realty
11:19 pm
next year i'll be calling upon the leadership of barbarager seea director of public ehealth, trent roar director of human sunchss and [inaudible] director of hope. together we have aurltd r already implemented some the most forward thinking progressive homeless policies in the country. we created the nations first navigation center, which is just 9 months that we have successfully moved more than 250 people off the streets into healthier settings. great progress towards ending chronic veterans homelessness is done these last few years tackling family homelessness we made great progess. a new investment in supportive housing of 29,000,000 this year. i want to saw they think to tren, barbara and sam and all
11:20 pm
your team said for pourer your hearts in this work and thank you for joins forces with us to take it to the next level vlt i want to say a special thank you to public works. i know that department . you kept our streets and have done your best and for always having a positive interaction with the homeless people and compassion and thank you for taking on the smelliest dirtgist jobs in town. i also want to say thank you to all of the people who are own single room occupancy hotels in the city thmpt hotels that are cooperating and working with us to make these units available for people transitioning out of homelessness. that is stock of housing. we never thought through our past loousts and insistence to
11:21 pm
get code enforcement, we didn't realize how valuable they are to us and a valuable assess they can be. i know some people will say, a department to solve homlessness mayor. 93 eve. we can't solve homelessness in san francisco. i know that will will be peoples comments. i say we will end homelessness every every single day for @ least one person. for at least one family. for at least a veteran every single day. i know because i have felt the power of giving keys to people exactly in those situations. we will end it for every 1 for every day for someone who suffers on our street. that is what the purpose of
11:22 pm
creating this department is about. i want a staff at this new department, each person on the staff will come to work every morning with a single minded focus on ending homelessness for people on the streets. i want the measure of the work of this department and my office to be answering this question, what did i do to end homelessness on our city streets today and what did i do to give people a stable shelter, a home and a path to a healthier life. that is what i want them to ask themselves every single day. i want that to be the question that they ask of themselves. you know, ending homelessness in a very simple way is a matter of priorities. to get there we have to double down on programs that truly work. we have to coordinate with partners, federal, state and other cities. we
11:23 pm
have to share and do the best practices and we have to also share our challenges with each other. and you know, i always am focused and concerned about congress and as you know, congress is largely abandoned homelessness in the country and we in san francisco can't wait frathe politics of waug wash dc to arrive, we have tolead and we lead with values. our san francisco values. that is what being a san franciscan is all about, isn't it? it is our values. to be fully able to achieve this vision i'm inviting a group of national experts to advise how to create and set the mandate for this new department. i have spoken to president obamas point person on homelessness, matthew
11:24 pm
dorty and he agreed to come out and advise and has the expertise of looking at programs across the country to see what works. we want to be egressive on this but want to be practical at the same time. how will we define sausking street homelessness? what are the investments we are making and how can we double down on this? is there something that we can be doing that we are not already doing? i aults want to invite the local homeless coordinating board to serve as a formal advisory body during the process. we convened san franciscos best and brightest on that commission and definitely need your input. i invite all of you here, every one of you, the people working hard every day day in and out to join in defining the new effort as well because i'll present this plan with the budget this coming year.
11:25 pm
foremost among the efforts of the department are expanding the successful navigation center program. we learned that by removing barrier tooz entry into the shelter program and pairing ever navigation center with a housing exist we are making a difference. we already committed the funding in the budget this year to double our capacity at the navigation center and the department will significantly increase to this model. we'll coordinate outreach and build more centers and secure more housing exists. certainly this requires serious funding. since i took office we have spent all most 100 mil yen more every year on homeless services and housing and my commitment today is this, to never let our
11:26 pm
city slip backwards on our funding priorities. that means movering forward we'll spend at threes 250 million a year on outreach and housing for 10s of thousands of people. we know success isn't mesered by how much money we spend, you know that. accountability matters. we are measured by the number of human beings we lep off our streets and into a better life and by conditions on our streets also improving at the same time. so, i'm setting a ambishish but i believe an achievable goal for the second term. by the time i leave office we will move at least 8 thousand people out of homelessness and we'll remove them out of homelessness forever.
11:27 pm
[applause] and we'll build a system that ends a persons homelessness before it becomes chronic. that is another thing we learned from the navigation center and we'll do this and achieve this all together. we'll do this by housing families, veterans long term homeless to homeward bound program and long term care for the seriously mentally ill. i also need cooperation for the private sector and philanthropic partner tooz participate as well. i already conversation with san francisco's business leaders on this particular goal. business leaders, big and small, about a multi-year partnership to add additional navigation centers to the cities portfolio. to them across the board i say thank you and begin
11:28 pm
by saying a personal thank you to our first anonymous private donor to the the first navigation center. i'm excited for our partnerships to develop more in the coming months just like the way we started our first navigation center. it was a partnership with faith and funding sources and community in the mission and then everybody else. we need more partnership models like our effort to end family homelessness in the elementary schools which is the focus of [inaudible] 2 great civic leaders. no less different than our technology leaders like nob nub who also became a partner to end veterans homelessness by funding a viable new housing for them in mission bay. letting people live on our
11:29 pm
streets exposed to violence and whether that isn't compassion. it isn't healthy, it isn't safe and it does want represent who we are as san francisco and it is not our san francisco values. you know, i'm also proud of our city coming together over something that used to be controversial and i'm talking about lauras law. thank you for visor marc farrell, thank you for your leadership in this effort on a issue that used to divide a lot of us, now it units us with a comma causs because we are figuring it out. since we launched our consensus program just last month we have already received 28 referals from ern concerned family members
11:30 pm
and service providers. some of the most severely mentally ill they are finally getting help. laura's law is one the many compassionate programs we should be doing in partnership with our courts and district attorney and justice system. san francisco values means we won't lock people up or persecute them just for being mentally ill. that won't happen and won't happen as long as i'm mayor, but we can use the resources our justice system to make sure people are getting better heltier outcomes. i want to challenge the courts, our public defender and district attorney and health provider tooz come together in the same spirit of collaboration that i proposed today. coming together with your diverse responsibilities and your legal mandates to better serve those
11:31 pm
desperately in need of our help because i will challenge you with the same outcome i'm calling upon everyone else. let's talk about not just our legal mandates, lets also talk about outcomes for people. [applause] it is not compassionate and you will agree with me on this to let people suffer silently, to medicate with drugs and call and live an unhealthy life on our streets, that is not compassion and we are empowered to help the seriously mentally ill people but first have to agree to coperate. in a new year i'll invite all our gurchlt stakeholders and mental health and criminal justice to convene with me. i bring this group together to get past the reasons we cannot do things and figure out a way we can do
11:32 pm
it. let's say for example, you take this program, some of you in the room know what the 51/50 program is. it is a program with people in personal crisis and danger to themselves we take them to the hospital for 72 hours, but you know what is the challenging part of that 51/50 program? once they come out they go right back on the streets and into the same unhealthy situation that they were literally 48 hours ago. we pulled them out and bring them right back in. that is 51/50. let's redesignthality program for a better outcome, a sustained outcome for those individuals. let's redesign conservativeship programs to serve the intended populations while
11:33 pm
respecting their civil liberty. we can have a better outcome on that as well. the seriously mentally ill deserve our best efforts. it is complicated and that's why we take that challenge up. as we focus on getting people into healthier settings, we also need to refocus on the people who are not homeless. the people who prey on our homeless. drug dealers who target the addicted and mentally ill contributing to serious health problems. i'm calling y i am calling for stepped up enforcement for predatory drug dealing around our navigation centers and shelter and homeless service locations and every place we house our homeless. [applause] we need to clean up drug
11:34 pm
dealing around the buildings where homeless people are trying to clean up their lives. we are not criminalizing drug addictions, we are enforcing existing laws to protect the most vulnerable. i want to thank supervisor and president of the board of supervisors president london breed for being a leader on the reforms. she is a strong voice the quality of life and reforming our treatment of the mentally ill. that's why friend i am optimistic. a new department, ambitious goal, a will in our city to succeed on this. we can make homelessness rare. we can make it brief. we can make it a one time event in peoples lives. we can move at least 8 thousand people out of
11:35 pm
homelessness forever. for too long deeply held and ideological differences divided all of us. some say we are not tough enough. others say we are not compalgzinate enough. some say we spend too much money and others say we haven't spent enough. it is time to reconcile these disagroogruments not to set them aside but work through them. if we can cooperate to solve homelessness the sky is the limit on what else we can achieve together. i want to say to you again, we can end homelessness for each individual that we touch, for each family, for each child, we can do that for them. that's what we can define as ending homelessness. if we do it together, we will have demonstrated that collaboration and
11:36 pm
cooperation is the best way to move forward. so, i want to end by saying thank you to all of you for taking time out of your busy day to listen to me. i'm excited to work with you, this will give a struck chur to work effectively with all of us. we can do better and will do better, i'm excited and we are san francisco. thank you very much. much.

11:46 pm
most advanced structure engineers we have working around here. we we're going to here from kelly to talk a little bit about san francisco. how are you doing kelly? >> very well, thank you for having us here. >> in front of us, we have a typical soft story building. when i see this, i think this is some of the most beautiful architecture our city has. a lot of people don't know these are problematic buildings. why don't you tell us about some of the risks he we have in these buildings? >> soft stories are vulnerable in past earthquakes and the northridge earthquake to this type of building and character of building. when we talk about the soft story, what we're talking about is generally a ground story that has less wall or other /pwraeugs to resist the lateral forces that might be imposed by the earthquake. so we're looking for something that is particularly weak or soft in this ground story. now, this is a wonderful
11:47 pm
example of what some of the residential buildings that are soft stories in san francisco look like. and the 1 thing that i would point out here is that the upper force of this building have residential units. they have not only a fair amount of wall around the exterior of the building but they also have very extensive walls in the interior and bathrooms and bedrooms and corridors and everything that has a certificate amount of brazing yea it's significantly less country /srabl in those stories. now very often, we get even a garage or storage or sometimes commercial occupancy in this ground story. that very often not only has a whole lot less perimeter wall but it often has little or no wall on the interior. that wall is the earthquake bracing and so he see very significant bracing in the top floor and
11:48 pm
very little on the bottom. when the earthquake comes and hits, it tries to push that ground floor over and there's very little that keeps it from moving and degrading and eventually /paoerblly keeping it from a collapse occurring. so we know they're vulnerable because of this ground story collapsing >> is this only a problem we see in sentence france? san francisco? >> no, this is certainly a national problem. more acute in western but more up to california, washington, moving out into other states. this kind of building exist and this kind of building is vulnerable. >> when you're involved with the community safety, this is a different way of thinking about these types of things. we had a community group of over 100 people involved and upper 1 of them. tell us about * how that
11:49 pm
conversation went. why did we decide as a city or a community to start fixing these types of buildings? >> there were a lot of aspects that were considered well beyond just the engineering answer that these are vulnerable. and that effort brought in a lot of people from different aspects of the community that looked at the importance of these buildings to the housing stock and the possible ramifications of losing this /houbgs in the case of an earthquake. the financial implications, the historic preserve vacation s implication as you mentioned, these are very handsome looking buildings that are importance to the tourist city ask which make san francisco something that people are interested from outside in coming and visiting. >> it's such animation story when you think about the 10 years that the community spent talking about this /seurb but we actually did something about it. now we have an order
11:50 pm
unanimouses put in place to protect 100,000 residents in san francisco and retrospective in 2020. so on behalf of residents and employees in san francisco, we want to say thank you for the work you've done in pushing this forward and making people more aware of these issues. >> and it was a fantastic community effort. >> so in an earth quake, what happens in these kinds of buildings? >> what happens when an earthquake comes along is it moves the ground both horizontally and vertically. it's mostly the horizontal that we're worried about. it starts moving the building back and forth and pushing on it. when you see i'm pushing on it, the upper stiff of the wall stay straight up but the lower floors, they actually collapse just like i did there. >> luckily, we can put this building right back up where it came
11:51 pm
from so it's a lot easier. now kelly, obviously these aren't real frame walls here but when you talk about buildings, what makes the property for stiff? >> the easiest and most cost-effective type of bracing you can put in is either put in a brand new wall or to potentially go in and strengthen a wall that's already there where you don't need to have an opening is where you maybe have a garage door or access to commercial space, you might go to a steel frame or other types of bracing systems that provides the strength and stiff if necessary but at the same time, allows continued use of that area. but some combination of walls or frames or other tools that are in the tool kit that can bring the building up to the strength that's required in order to remove the vulnerability from the building so that when ground shaking comes, it in fact is a whole lot more resistant
