12:05 am
services and provides a fraction in which the staff at the occ confer with the planning dependent on the matters the original mou was for two fiscal years focusing 2014 and fiscal year 2015 during the term of the original mou we began to work on the golden state warriors project that project presented a large body of work beyond anticipated in the mou so in september of 2014 the commission authorized the first amendments of mou to allow us to work with the golden state warriors using the planning department and environmental services and extending the term one fiscal year to 2016 now we're requesting the second amendment which will allow
12:06 am
continued assistance on the golden state warriors and extend the terms to 2018 to give you goodic context of the area those are redevelopment project areas on this map that shows you where encouraging occ has land use for the right the areas where occ is responsible for be agreements and permits and they include i'm sorry to take you from north to south at the top the transbay the zone one of transbay that is a portion of redevelopment project around fulsome boulevard and main and beal streets there is rincon hill being that area in orange adjacent to transbay zone one the embarcadero in the south beach surrounding the ball park
12:07 am
to the south in purple you'll see mission bay north and south and further in the bayview hunters point and red called the bay area industrial triangle this area expires in 2020 and is an area along the third street corridor in the northern portion of hunters point we have land use jurisdiction and finally to the for the southeast portion of hunters point phase one phase two redevelopment project areas and little candle stick point that is actually zone one of the hunters point project area within those areas the development controls and standards are regulated by project area design for development documents not the planning code however, the planning code often applies we often confer with the planning department on the implementation of those areas
12:08 am
i also wanted to show you areas that are designated by the city as priority areas the enar circled areas on the map pursuant to the coordination within the city department they're required to produce expeditious processes of approvals those areas to the north the first red transbay zone one that is mission bay north and south and hunters point and candle stick they does not conduct the rincon hill south beach project area nor the bayview triangle project area with respect to the memorandum of understanding dwiftsd into two areas of discipline the design review and environmental impact when respect to the design the agreement calls up to
12:09 am
0.5 staff to assist the design review that we are required to do and these as your familiar are basic concept and schematic and after the approved schematic we have more work to do in the construction documents it includes justice a general land use and urban design policy assistance and basically technical services from the planning code i mean, the planning department related to the planning code and general plan the section portion is the environmental reviews up to one and 50 staff hours to support occ on the environmental review project areas they include basically our requires requirements and the sort of of the documents we are obligated to prepare in the
12:10 am
california environmental quality act they include the surexemption and negative declarations and reports as well as possibly an environmental impact report or as you've seen before you addendum to the environmental impact reporters i wanted to show the history of budget of this mou from its beginning in fiscal year 2014 to what we're proposing in the 1e789 through 2018 those are 5 years of collaboration and use of planning department staff services and as you can see every year we loot the same amount of money under the vieira one and 50 sthoidz for the environmental review and point review 75 thousands an amount of 200 plus
12:11 am
for the next year's to authorized that extension the $450,000 and little full amount will think an aggregate not to exceed one million dollars plus one thing to keep in mind those budget amounts are top told her we've not expended this much but prefer to be prepared in case of the additional workload i want to touch a little bit more on how we are managing the golden state warriors scope of work you should not in the mou we didn't include the amount of staff time and budget in the actual be agreements to be paid out of occ or as a pass through occ instead we facilitated an arrangement within is groundbreaking so the planning
12:12 am
department can bill directly to the golden state warriors and pays directly to the planning department without going through occ for that reason the amount of the golden state warriors are not included in the table i showed you before the dbi's e golden state warriors has been approved and moving forward with the design development and ultimately the construction documents so we anticipate within the next two years within the term of this extended mou this project will begin construction and during the construction period what is crucial that we insure proper tracking monitoring and reporting of the required mitigation measures pursuant to the eir so the planning department agreed to offer 0.one 5 hours for the passion or prejudice of the monitoring of the hours during that
12:13 am
construction phase this is that slide. >> now as far as staff recommendation that concludes my presentation we recommend you authorize the second amendment it will will extend through 2018 it will increase the budget amount to an amount not to exceed 4 hundred plus aggregate one million dollars plus i'm here to answer any questions thank you very much. >> thank you. we will take public comment first is there anyone from the public that would like to comment. >> tom curious we've god got a sinking building on market street downtown
12:14 am
one .5 point one 57 quality hours what does that mean we're increasing the environmental review to 4 hundred and $50,000 it's obvious we have a sinking building downtown a high-rise i don't think we want to continue to push that along all the other agencies just is that for the transfor downtown or transbay or is that all of these development areas thank you enemy that would like to come and speak? >> okay commissioners any questions or comments for
12:15 am
staff. >> commissioner singh. >> yeah. yeah. i just want to know that lots of things going on against the golden state warriors how is it looks now we see the other people. >> counsel might want to say and approximately 2 and a half weeks ago the superior court ruled against those petitioning and challenging the arena and the complex on all accounts and that was 2, 3, 4 two cases against occ and case against the city substantially the petitioners had 5 days to appeal with the court of appeals and if not file the briefs due within a month that will be an, an expedited
12:16 am
basis we expect to prevail on this. >> was there any problem you know any kind of you know how long it will take to come forward. >> well start building that. >> sure as you recall this project was certified by the governor an as an environmental stuarty provision under ceqa that requires the litigation to be complete essentially within a year less than a year both the trial court and the appeals finished between 200 and 70 days after certification of the record so we're in the middle of that period and have several months then until the courts have to resolve understanding inexclusively all the matters with that litigation so the warriors understand have take a
12:17 am
look at it and have a commencement and schedule that one shumz we'll prevail as well and occur after the 200 and 70 day period when it is complete. >> thank you. >> any questions. >> what is the breakdown monthly of hours for staff out of one and 50 thousand? >> commissioner pimentel are you referring to the one and $50,000 for environmental impact environmental review full-time staff 22nd we've not needed that much work yet.
12:18 am
>> i have a couple of questions want to make sure that i understood why 9 so - >> is in the - this is the golden state warriors project the point one 5 full-time equivalent hours will be reimbursed directly paid by the warriors that's not in our mou just a component of their direct payment to claim. >> jeff commissioner rosales it is we causality it out as something under our purview but something that the planning department has budgeted and agreed to provide as far as services. >> separately. >> yeah. however, not paid throw us. >> right i get it. >> through the golden state warriors and to answer the
12:19 am
gentleman's question it was 6 hours a week. >> okay. okay. >> then the other question i had was i have it here somewhere we talked when we approved the block 4 in transbay the transbay block 4 partied up others parcel f the transaction through the executive director we'll ask the planning department of education to moonlight to make sure that parcel f process was expedited and so i'm wondering a did we do that and b did he respond laughter in transbay a declaration for the transbay project area that incorporates two zone one one on
12:20 am
the map and the portions that includes block 4 and the portion to the north up to the transbay transit center that includes where parcel f it is zone two we separated it zone two administrative code by the c-3 downtown zoning and zone one is a different animal at occ - ocii administers in house through a declaration agreement planning department to be responsible for land use permits and land use authority in zone two of the declaration agreement requires a john updyke and staff meets currently once a month to discuss the permits in both
12:21 am
areas perhaps we can future our collaboration on block 4. >> through the chair the planning director was aware of the development off parcel f under the planning jurisdiction and land use jurisdiction as mr. campos and block 4 land use and proprietary overview their tied together in addition not working group we have our transbay project marry that is part of likely each and every meeting the staff has with the project sponsor for parcel f on the planning side i believe there was a meeting at the end of july the planning director first meeting with the project sponsor to kickoff their plans and projects and our staff was present and an ongoing presence
12:22 am
those two are tied together and as to what our program will be on block 4 and the expedited review the faster parcel f goes the faster for the project. >> great i don't have - >> those are any questions. >> any members of the commission have a motion commissioner singh has made a motion commissioner pimentel as seconded it call the roll. >> xhoibd commissioner pimentel commissioner bustos is absent commissioner singh commissioner mondejar is absent commissioner rosales i have 3

12:25 am
exciting to bring forgot this set of legal services contracts before you as you recall gopher signed a law in the bill a special san francisco only provision that we needed to complete broad scale of our enforceable candle stick point shipyard in go transbay and in mission bay awhile that was clear the infrastructure components for hunters point and mission bay we have issue in the post world not clear for our affordable housing obligations and we had no such authority in transbay for the neighborhood service infrastructure so the budget you approved this past fiscal year really relies on that special san francisco only provision that you supported the
12:26 am
mayor and certainly this office had a hand in providing inform that special san francisco only provision in sb one 07 before you housing bonds and infrastructure and transbay under that sb one 07 and bonds for housing we need a series of consultant to complete the work program that is the cash that provides the aggressive work program with that introduction john our senior final analyst for ocii will present overseeing items you'll act on separately. >> good afternoon commissioner rosales and director bohe i'm john the senior financial analyst for ocii items 5 b c and d before you as director bohe pointed out are

12:28 am
in mission bay 30 projects in hunters point shipyard and two projects in candle stick point so next there is $90 million taxable refunding housing bond a number of candidates i've listed them on the slide but spare you reading them this expands or contracts the market conditions the 99 is an estimate we don't know it could get bigger or smaller. >> last but not least we have a $37 million in tax-exempt infrastructure bonds for transbay these are needed to fund the fulsome streetscape, the dollar ramp park are the transbay park and another park.
12:29 am
>> so bring the recommendations for tree contracts one important bond counsel and two for - bartley and the law offices of alex chiu the john's hall contract covers all 3 bond issues the amount is 200 and $7,000 and broke down into you know a base fee of $45 million for the $23 million and taxable housing bonds and 55 thousand dollars for the 90 million taxable rotunda and 65 thousand for the 37 tax exempt
12:30 am
transbay infrastructure bonds expenses are invited 3 for a total of $9,000 and contingency amount of $33,000 roughly 20 percent this is subject to executive director approval the contingency is there to allow for six driven changes in scope so we don't get setback to square one and that example that will be a change in size a dramatic size in the change of refunding in scope of one of the other bonds the term with all the contracts will be in effect fill the financing are complete i'd like to introduce representing joan steve our lead counsel.

12:33 am
bonds for 23 million housing bond rather than the whole financial team back to square one he'll have compute with the definition of the disclosure items we'll get to that and the contract allows for expenses not to exceed 25 hundreds and a contingency of 7 thousand subject to the approval the executive director and as with the other contracts remain in effect and welcome back alex chow alex has worked with us not in recent years but in the past on bond issues at this time, i'd like to conclude by recommending the approval of those items and welcome any questions. >> thank you we need to take public comment first. >> is there anyone interest the public that would like to

12:39 am
bayview candle stick point areas and interagency for the citywide investment and bayview hunters point and hunters point shipyard and mission bay south and north discussions madam director the suffice office of economic workforce development is under a taking a strategic planning process for the southern bay front and the hunters point shipyard and senior project manager will provide a brief introduction and i'm going to turn it over to representatives from oewd. >> thank you executive director bohe and good afternoon senior project for the candle stick point i'm joined by ken rich and others from the office of economic workforce development they have been working with various city departments on the strategy in
12:40 am
the working group and the southern bay front is run from south of mission creek by the ball park to the candle stick point and obviously that covers two ocii project areas mission bay hunters point shipyard and candle stick point it also covers several untitled sites where development is not approved including on southeast pier 70 and into the abstinence the goal of the working group is to create a negotiation framework for those untitled sites in order to leverage investment and community benefits for those untitled sites and then in terms of ocii project areas we obviously have robust development plans and community benefits program that are established the goal to coordinate the goals with our city colleagues to provide and
12:41 am
deliver those communities infrastructure with that, i'll introduce ken rich director of oewd. >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm ken rich what oewd nice to see you thank you for the opportunity for this so though we've worked on as a partnership with the oewd into producing the best results for the city for a number of unique large developments permitted in the areas of the city we started to call the southern bay front so to get context let's setback on the slide and look at the entire waterfront we suggest that one, think about four zones moving clockwise the first two zones in the red and green are primarily under federal control with a little bit of city rec and park ownership and those we'll see little hang in the
12:42 am
future the third shown in blue we you'll classical think about when we imagine the san francisco waterfront this ferry building and the photographers and amount of that in all likelihood changes in the future the last limousine in joel stretching in at&t park to the southern board of the city that is part of waterfront with that we believe we'll see the change we believe many if not all observers will welcome the change as it transitioned out of heavy industry as long as the change is for the benefit of surrounding neighbors the remainder of the presentation focuses on the changes in the right way. >> so sdoem on that yellow area the key point this is a place where people live and work
12:43 am
and at the same time we building will be the most growth in the residential and commercial growth how do we shape this growth the city sorry shape that growth for the good of the city and good of the adjacent neighborhoods. >> so the fact is most of large-scale development we'll see in the southern bay front is on the horizon in some form whether many implements such the project area hunters point and candle stick point in the middle of the project like the port pier 70 and mission rock or more in early stages like the baseline and pg&e and hunters point and power plant just to underscore the importance of getting this right take into account the statistics on the
12:44 am
slide we'll see 20 though now e new housing units in the project area created in the southern bay front and 6 seven hundred had been affordable we expect 35 thousand new jobs of various kinds and in some cases the most exist 5 hundreds and 20 acres of open space that is virtually all the new open space we'll see in the for seeable future. >> so what i've done on the next slide faded back the projects that are approved in the prelims like yours that leaves 56 large proposed project to be approved ass all of the proposed are seeking to transform from the industrial land with open space and commercial activities while the investment with, of course, beneficial for the city we're focused on claiming as much of
12:45 am
that value for the residents and neighborhoods surrounding it all of the projects will be in variance commissions and the board of supervisors in the next couple of years as negotiated development agreement that gives us the opportunity to do what we're here to side to propose to all of the decision makersers is negotiating framework for the projects so as question negotiate the public benefits around the transportation and open space and affordability we're better late than never all the projects at once and not bringing drooishgz e decision makers one at a time i'm going to turn it over to my colleague that will take you through the benefit categories we hope to create the framework for . >> thanks ken and hi, i'm with oewd. >> so as ken discussed the
12:46 am
negotiation framework will coordinate from the proposed project into a number of key areas as you can see those are summarized on the slide and the next we'll grow those in detail so for the most part affordable housing is a critical area where we want to direct the investments in order to achieve our goal of 33 percent affordability on average across all the projects over 65 hundred units of new affordable housing which have of the shipyard we'll directly benefit the local residents and existing communities through the neighborhoods preference program that is 40 percent of the units for existing residents and, of course, as per city law the certificate of preference holders and ellis act adapted tenants will get the first
12:47 am
priority for all of the units on sea level rise the city is commit to protect the vulnerable community and on the slides as you can see from the mayors sea level rise action plan that was published earlier this year those developments will play a collaborative roll in the citywide effort and transforming by adapt and raising the grades to protect against sea level rise how supporting future district wide through long term adaptation and through financial resources that those projects my provide on transportation we know that transportation investment a critical component for existing and future residents along the southern bay front the city is working to meet the demand with a host of projects online as
12:48 am
early as next year in the slide as you can see the new projects under implementation and will be delivered between 2016 and 2020 and on the next slide as you can see the next set of projects between 2020 and 2030 i won't name each of them putting them together and including some future projects as you can see the significant package of transportation need in this district so how did those proposed projects fit in - through collaboration with each and everyone and through negotiations with the city we aim to channel the transportation obligation from those together so they can have a collective go impact than otherwise individual from each we're focusing to our efforts on 3 categories the first is on
12:49 am
localized infrastructure so this means bike paths, streetscape and especially to coordinate for example, at the 4 pier 70 and the n r g adjacent to one another we need to make sure the opening statements o improvements are cohesive the second to invest in the proclamations this is how to booster the light rail fleet and bus fleet to make sure we have the service we need the mta is able to keep up with demand and the third is planning for the future so this means how can we think about how the projects contribute or fit into a long terms picture of planning for a second transbay crossing or helping the city think about core capacity improvements
12:50 am
on open space ken mentioned we have the creation of over nine hundred acres of new and renovated open space and this is in shipyard so we're going to organize those projects 0 through a couple of ideals one making sure that the new open space that is created in our promoted projects and connectivity with new communities this is going to create a waterfront that is pubically assessable as you may know part of waterfront not pubically assessable in the past we want to make sure that access is defining carved out in the design and in the implementation of open spaces we also want to make sure those open spaces have connected through the blue green network of the plan and finally we want to make sure we have an open space sometime that creates a
12:51 am
cohesion of programming that this understand, of course, those open spaces will be managed in a different way maybe maintained in a different way those decisions are going to be made down the road but make sure that the public knows that all of the open spaces are assessable and used in concerto with one another. >> on sustainability our proposed project will achieve a high-level of sustainability through the revitalization of formally industrial spaces improving those to residential unit through the use of resource and utility design and new technology and most exciting the approaches to infrastructure to provide long term benefits to the border district
12:52 am
on community facilities this really means public safety like police station but other facilities like grocery stores and schools those kinds of elements because we're not doing a major, major neighborhood area plan those kinds of elements awhile important we need to make sure we include them in the better late than never the growth of this district and through the leadership of the planning department to look at the resources and facilities that to help us plan over the long term to make sure people have access and make sure the communities have assess those too important facilities and then last but not least we have workforce development to contribute to the employment opportunities to the provision of new office space, pdr and
12:53 am
railway opportunities they go also make candidates to the professional service fields through the partnership of oewd citywide program and while the projects are not far enough long for the candidates to distinguish we have been working with city build to build accomplish plans for organizing the workforce across the projects for example, the pier 70 forest city and the giant project both pagers and similar sound-producing electronic devices are prohibited at this meeting. lands have committed to the local hire demand and implementation those projects are also going to comment to 50 percent first hiring goal and in the construction environment and in addition to the candidates the
12:54 am
port has explored how to support the city build for the office and the pdrs employment's sectors because both of the uses will be fined on the project and make sure we have people properly trained for the jobs on the construction side thinking about how to work with city build to have a training program specifically for construction pile drivers this is on identified need for both the projects with a lot of use for pile drivers and identified there is a lack of skilled workers in the trade those are the kinds of ideas to target the workforce candidates with that, i'm going to turn it over to ken to finish the presentation thank you. >> thank you we're almost finished can i have the shied one of the things we're most modifications
12:55 am
about the ability to use various forms of public finance to stretch the dollars we can ask for from the developers as we negotiate as you may know the project out of the areas don't have access to the poufrlt tools tax increments but building there are tools out there and icon fesz i normally don't do this slide (laughter) so we have the ability to assess community facility districts and other sorts of ways of targeting the way we spend our impact fees and different forms of tax increments to make those things stretch so one of the things that in fact, we are existed about is as we fund the near term infrastructure and other things through the public finance for example, for a
12:56 am
mello-roos you can establish it for thirty or 40 or 50 years pass the first set of bonds after thirty years and still have the income we need to focus on sea level rise infrastructure experiencing so can we fought something the first bopdz gets us the road and whatever and in the future bans that income stream that is continuing get us whatever infrastructure we know what what it is to help not only those projects but the surrounding neighborhoods we're excited about that and really trying to focus on the public finance opportunities here. >> this is just concluding to remind you how important to focus on an area with 20 though new units and open space all of those things
12:57 am
in terms of a schedule as you can see that of the projects coming forward the 5 projects that are not approved necessary cluster in the next year or two mostly in 2017 a couple of them into 2018 that is when we expect the approvals i can't have a vacation or the staff that's when we're approving all the work this is a a joke i wanted to take the opportunity before concluding to reminded you that nothing we're doing changes anything in terms of the redevelopment the formal redevelopment area it is all about corresponding around transportation and other things like that we're not in must way revisiting the long years of work it took to get the shipyard and candle stick point going far from that and just to remind everyone the list of agencies if i can have the slide back for
12:58 am

12:59 am
concrete broke off that's the day i quite so if you train someone train them to run the pile driver not hold that rope that is 50 years ago pretty much and i had put better safety factors and the other problem we - i'm talking about e-2 in the hunters point shipyard i went to a meeting hunters point power plant did a tremendous job in cleaning up but e-2 and yosemite has hazardous materials you're talking about putting housing i want to o these two areas 100 percent clean and it behoves this commissions to make sure that happens this is 100 percent a lot of things in the yosemite and all of the areas i know my
1:00 am
grandfather - knew when they were dump sites we talk about housing and what have you in those areas i'm hoping this commission and the city do some homeless housing we have a lot of homeless families 2, 3, 4 bayview hunters point and potrero hill people are losing their homes their apartments you need to get overseeing part times for homeless families a priority open there and homeless seniors doctor davis housed quite a few of the homeless seniors in their project but it will behove the commission that the shipyard was free property from the government just like mission bay was free property build some housing for homeless
1:01 am
families i'm begging this commission 0 do that and thank you very much. >> thank you mr. gold. >> tom exactly where i was going to start off with it is well, not exactly preference 40 percent preference preference is nice but mandatory is better those housing for local people and for x amount of years and find in the area that means if you don't find somebody that is from the area to more often you can't rent or sell them your price has to drop to a good price in the area. >> then i was going to go to exactly with that gentleman said what about the 20 percent of our people that are living that are
1:02 am
seniors are running out of their ability to find a home the veterans just on shaky ground or the homeless that live there - it is a nice rosy picture but there is nobody in our backyard you know we don't want them and other backyards but here we are creating new backyards and those people are already there their surrounding the area we need to incorporate that of the negotiations need to say you have homeless on our site we don't - we want to get away from the site they'll pay into a fund we want each building to have homeless veterans and graduated fosters kids and section 8 people and a community of what san francisco is all about climatic change we're putting 0 off climatic change that is the
1:03 am
second the time i'm glad we are negotiating and collaboratively with the private sector that means we don't have to insure their property we don't have to be on hold for the damages when climate change goes whoops we donna didn't plan or wide enough we have a building downtown in the news that settled 10 inches before they dug a shovel at the transbay the other thing is transbay do we know how many people the 20 percent that are less fortunate on this site there will be there i think that's where we need to go seniors and young folks thank you i have 30 seconds and the other thing is kids and i want kids to grow
1:04 am
i was- good morning to say for the section affordable housing needs to be rent control also thank you. >> thank you. >> any more speaker cards okay. thank you this is a workshop so questions. >> how long does it take to complete that how many years. >> a little bit difficult but how will it take us to get the projects approved i think by 2019 with luck we'll have all the entitled pg&e project is probably the last one in terms of how long it takes for them to be built out it is speculation and depended on the parking ticket kiegz but certainly quite a bit longer than that in the
1:05 am
2020s before we see them built out i can't be more accurate. >> is and i'm sorry. >> is it 2020 a we'll not have all the units by 2020 in the 2020s more like the latter of that decade. >> other things i see this year next in 5 minutes is the buses on page 12 and they run every 5 minutes that's pretty good. >> (laughter). >> you see this item. >> that's. >> 5 minutes. >> that's what i like to see when i'm waiting i'll say when the central subway opens in 2019 the head ways on the t are expected to visitacion valley through bayview hunters point to go down to 6 to 7 minute head
1:06 am
ways. >> far important frequent trains that's part of investment. >> that's give you a little bit of background thank you. >> commissioner cohen. >> i have a couple of questions the first one on page 16 and it talks about city build the allotment we had a meeting they mentioned the barriers in terms of getting people on - with a project mobility a day or something that is long term but getting those individuals into management they absolutely can have a career and others barriers are licenses if someone has a suspected also that pays the thousand dollars for the redevelopment program but you mentioned work with city build how to do you plan to address those barriers but also reach a
1:07 am
wide variety of the community members that's my first question and two more. >> thank you we've specifically been in connect with city build he mentioned he gave you a presentation we're aware of barriers i think that the city build folks are spearheading the areas to - the one thing i can say the earlier, you start training and pricilla chan people and making sure that people understand what the barriers are to get over the barriers by addressing this now for the future projects those jobs will start not for a number of years but by thinking about them we'll address those and we're thinking how to possibly use some of the resources up front or at least during the
1:08 am
implementation to help he specifically help city build and not just supporting this program. >> the gentleman from the public mentioned work with homeless families are you guys worked with for example, the prenatal program they had a couple of families and sunnyvale to make sure they have access. >> i'll say first of all, the mayor's focus is heavily on dealing with all sorts of issues we have new homeless czar for a lack of a better term so we don't pretend to be experts but certainly as we shall happen even the areas and reaching out to jazz and making sure we - i'm not going to try to answer and question i'm an expert but
1:09 am
this is what the mayor wants us working on. >> definitely reach out for example, if you organization wanted to understand their barriers to make is the information and the other gentleman said about preference it will be great to see on a grassroots level and findings out with the local communities and the local grocery stores you didn't i don't run two 5 people that are leerlz oftentimes the mailings and the e-mails are not getting to those individuals their mailbox is blogged and their working-class people and tight schedules. >> thank you for that i understand from various ours i can it is a southern of supervisor cowen that even if you setback units if people
1:10 am
don't know they're available it won't do people good i appreciate we're learning as we go forward but again with so much unit coming online that will be preferred to the surrounding neighborhood we have to figure out how to do the outreach and a lot of times people are not understanding they are qualified i came across a companies didn't realize she quality and recommended looking at the city family to see who qualified all types of parents and kids next door is a way to engage with the community as well and stay safe. >> thank you yes. >> any other questions. >> those are great questions or comments i had a few also that followed that mine are more in this vein of the coordination
1:11 am
so start with the city departments so in the last slide all the city departments and maybe it is two earlier to know what is the coordination continue and among the departments but perhaps some idea. >> well, no not two early in the past year our office has monthly meetings with all the departments and really getting ahead too often i think when you're doing a big project you wait to reach out to mta at the end not the way to be doing it all the departments you saw are sitting in meetings monthly at the department head or the department head level the staff is working with each other and happening more than a year. >> how does our agency fit ♪ informing and all that
1:12 am
>> so we've been at many and sally at some and director bohe at some i don't know all of your staff has been there and that is a little bit different you have an approved project we're not negotiating but where the rubber hits the road on the transportation improvements that cross between the india base project north of your project and a lot of back and forth and on the open space we definitely want to work with our staff and have bang to make sure that the open space reads to any average citizen they don't need to go to a different website for a picnic table but to the citizens of the city it should be open space and designed to make sure it welcomes the existing neighborhood and not look at it
1:13 am
is for the condo owners or the developers in the new developments those are the things we've talked with our staff i don't know if you guys want to add anything but around the transportation and open space. >> okay. good i was going to ask about the rec and park department and how that over laptops with the jurisdiction part. >> rec and park has been engaged in this project what we're doing is two-fold number one started to develop an idea when it is appropriate for them to manage open space and applies to some of the private projects and some of the newer projects that are planned so to speak of specifically purchased nine hundred units in the park in
1:14 am
concert with the bay area project their directly involved in ownership of a new park and managing that park i think the odds of the coin we talked about earlier which is how to make sure those open spaces feel public and draw on the resources that rec and park really inheritedly has to do community programming and summer camps and all the great programs and how we we reflect on the other parks especially in the two port projects o parks will be owned by the port so what roll in rec and park bringing they expertise in recreation to the new open spaces and so this i think we have not in the shipyards the port project and the private projects nothing has been decided yet but we're trying to create a framework so we kind of have various options we did this
1:15 am
really well, how can we help to activate those spaces. >> that sounds like great okay. the other question about the developers you've mentioned a numerous times i've noted when i was reviewing the package about developer negotiations and so clearly some developers that have been selected but not all; right? >> well, almost know who they are the two port projects have sleshthd their developers that's the process the mission creek across the channel from at&t and pier 70 for the forest city they're the developer and going south from there the former potrero power plant that is on for some time by a company n r g their currently out in public
1:16 am
looking for either a capital partner or an out right buyer that 20 acres we don't know that is this a piece of land a local developer in hayes valley we're negotiating with them that's their land and south from there pg&e ounces the pg&e power plant and intent to dispose we don't know an alternative developer with the exemption of the n r g folks when they put the property on the market we wanted to see what was buying it we know who wore working with. >> with regards to affordable housing obviously market-rate
1:17 am
housing is easy but with respect to affordable housing and the comment i agree with making sure that we benefit i will start with the neighborhood we've been talking about the certificate of preference program and you know my question really is how or what can we do or might you be thinking to insure we know that commissioner pimentel question as well who is in the neighborhood that essentially, if you will, the target population for the affordable units or folks if not affordable the market-rate folks and what is in process. >> let me talk about with we know we don't know everything to be honest but working on that we have made it clear i think the
1:18 am
shedding candle stick point is hitting 32 percent right in there the port projects have already nailed down mission rock the pier 70 is hitting thirty percent we've made it clear to the remaining one we need our average 33 based on what we told be around thirty something in there we imagined to be into well and moderate income we want that those are great opportunities we will be working with our private developers they're all getting up zoning and things we ask asked him about we kick in public resources we'll ask them and push them in the limitations of their performa the neighborhoods preference legislation that was passed by the board
