3:20 pm
and ushering the logics and with the authority and caltrans to make sure we are installing and operating a tolling system is critical to this effort like a build out to $203,041,000,000 it is quite a bit of revenue we'll be tracking and other revenues going to be in play parking approximately $7.2 million as well as transit and an international part of congestion management plan to establish ferry service the developer will build a ferry terminal we need to work with the water emergency transportation agency go ahead and execute and purchase the
3:21 pm

4:07 pm
at the state and federal levels and trying to capture those by the new administration and governor jerry brown hoping to lead a state transportation funding package and the next planned implementation and we again want to contribute especially in the building an intersection of state and local that will need some exposition and will benefit from a scan of what others are doing in the u.s. we look forward to your feedback on that and facilitating the agency and organizational staff recommendations as i mentioned will be a continuing focus and moving towards the ability to hire some of the positions that we were able to get our
4:08 pm
recommendation that's and priority and integrating the management system and promoting even more of the ability to have online and efficient systems will be part of this progress and finally with the external and internal limitations will be the initiative of the communications plan one of the outreaches of the assessment and this enensues at the agency level and the sub agency level and developing. >> community approach and capacity not sure we'll be able to deliver a relations now but the goal over several years to ramp up our ability for a community engagement and separate and apart from any particular project so 82 thank you for your time i hope that was a i'll have

overall of the objectives for 2017. >> thank you commissioner tang. >> thank you. i absolutely think that was helpful we're talking about the upcoming item i'm sure there are other things with we'll think of but this is good for moving forward what we've been able to accomplish so far one of the questions that was included for upcoming objectives for 2017 the opening the geary brt. >> so i don't want to get into a lengthy conversation but given where we are at the structure and turnover on the board we want to know where you see that going. >> yes. yes. >> early 2017. >> very, very that's a great question we've been in communication more recently on this because of the we are heading into that finish line
4:10 pm
earlier this year our goal to bring that approval action forward to this body in the fall we related heavily excuse me - on the federal transit administration we could document our project response to comments moving back to last year, we did a draft document and get feedback from the public and there the summer and spring and as we documented that from the faa they would be willing to have us do an errata format in the fall the guidance they gave us alternative advise to see more fully documentation of that back and forth with the
4:11 pm
community and the ultimate outcome we achieved many we were able to resolve blake the webster bridge in japantown similar is an idea of the cook from local stops the want to keep or in the area of some gas station businesses for example, we were able to really work on the parking loss and we were able to minimize but 20 percent unfortunately, the way we documented it was the more sort of streamlined way and it turned out because of those ongoing xhufksz and we introduced some vision zero pedestrian safety feature that was a new scope we added a couple of dozen obnoxiously or bulks or crosswalks it changed how we
4:12 pm
should document the changes and unfortunately, we got it rather late in the september, october timeframe so more recently, we looked at ways for the giensz and one idea that seems to have taken hold is that their comfort within the city attorney advice us to separate our documents into two pieces you'll see potentially the brt, the geary brt document come to a form if the eir for local approval and gives us time to in the coming months to respond to the document on a separate track the approval item for the geary bart for this body it to come to this body in 6 to 8 years and will be grateful that's what i'm hearing from the board they wish to take
4:13 pm
action, an the documents given here we are in the thanksgiving period we're working on a schedule we'll bring that to you in eight hundred 2017 before several of you term out. >> thank you for that update. >> commissioner mar. >> can i ask splitting it 20 in two the bart certification of the bayshore and could be happening in 2017 by this body and that would be still consistent with the same content and presented in the federal document because of the formulating requirements we'll more time to do that. >> thank you very much. >> sure. >> it's time to go into closed session i need a motion to do that. >> yeah. >> no, we don't? okay for the agenda we will not move into closed session limited to item number 4 isn't that

when you adopt a child from foster care, just being there makes all the difference. >> a lot a ton with the community and we say to ourselves, there is this one and this one. we all compartmentalize them, we have our own agenda. our agenda is to create great work. if you are interested in that, you are part of our community. >> hello and welcome to brava theater. >> we are trying to figure out a way to make a space where theater and presentation of live work is something that you think of the same way that you think of going to the movies. of course, it has been complex in terms of economics, as it is for everyone now. artistically, we have done over 35 projects in four seasons,
4:52 pm
from producing dance, theater, presenting music, having a full- scale education program, and having more than 50,000 visitors in the building almost every year. a lot of our emerging artists to generate their first projects here, which is great. then we continue to try to support figuring out where those works can go. we have been blessed to have that work produced in new york, going on to the edinburgh festival, the warsaw theater festival. to me, those are great things when you can watch artists who think there is nowhere else that might be interested in you being a woman of color and telling your story and then getting excited about it. that is our biggest accomplishment. having artists have become better artists. what is. sheri coming back to brava, here
4:53 pm
you have this establish, amazing writer who has won a clue -- slew of awards. now she gets to director and work. even though she is this amazing, established writer, the truth is, she is being nurtured as a director and is being given some space to direct. >> the play is described as ceremony and -- where ceremony and theater me. in the indigenous tradition, when you turn 52, it is like the completion of an important era. the importance of the ceremony is to say, you are 52. whenever you have been caring for the first 52 years, it is time to let it go. really, here, they have given me carte blanche to do this. i think it is nice for me, in the sense of coming back 25
4:54 pm
years later and seeing personally my own evolution as an artist and thinker. the whole effort to put the chicano or indigenous woman's experience on center stage is, in itself, for euro-american theaters, a radical position. because of the state of theater, it is a hard roll to hold up in institution. it is a hard road. i am looking at where we are 25 years later in the bay area, looking at how hard it is for us to strive to keep our theater is going, etc. i like to think that i'm not struggling quite as hard, personally, but what i mean by that, the intention, the commitment. particularly, to produce works that would not be produced in other places, and also to really
4:55 pm
nurture women of color artists. i think that is something that has not shifted for me in those 25 years, and it is good to see that brava remains committed to that kind of work. ♪ >> when people talk about the reflection of the community, we can only go from what we have on our staff. we have a south asian managing director, south african artistic director, latino community out rich person. aside from the staff, the other people, artists that we work with being a reflection of us, yes, the community is changing, but brava has always tried to be ahead of that trend. when i came in, i tried to make it about the work that shows the eclectic mission district, as well as serving the mission.

insurance policies for earthquakes they wanted to stop a serious insurance policy. >> we're talking about the homeownership's buying the earthquake shiners but 70 percent are renters what's my opposite. >> the option for renter the earthquake be insurance company is affordable i think people don't realize just exactly what it covers it covers damaged property but loss of use if you have to be under a building they have a quarter main that was broken as well as emergency repair if interests glass breaks in the carpet you need to be in our unit that's whether earthquake is important. >> you're title you're the excessive mitigation officer for the state of california when i think of insurance i don't think about mitigation. >> so as part of public safety mission the c e a started to put

5:36 pm
safely for walking and driving some streets are confusing here's what you need to know all intersection kroukz of novelist marked some are marked to make them more visible other crosswalks and intersections are raised to the level of sidewalk to actress as speed bump and people are maybe crossing be cautious and watch for people when you approach any intersection advanced limit lines and pedestrian yield signs show drivers where people walk and stop behind the lines at stop signs and for people crossing bulb outs where the sidewalks extends into the street make that tease easy to see
5:37 pm
pedestrians and remember to slow down whether making reasons and watch for people on sidewalk estimations extensions that maybe closer than you expect and bicyclists may motive to the left to get around bulb outs this gives people a head start allowing pedestrians to enter the crosswalk before transfer starts moving makes them more visible pedestrian scrimmage and stop the vehicles in all directions allow people to cross including department of building inspection scrambles are paired with no light restriction and rapid beacons you turn bright whether the pedestrians are there or the center is activated precede slowly as you approach the beacons especially, if their activated a pedestrian crossing

light turns yellow before turning sold red back to flash red procedure after making a full stop as long as the sidewalk is empty and, of course, stop whenever the light is red traffic circles reduce conflicts you must stop at the strewn and precede around the raise your right hand of the circle watch for people in crosswalks and people in bikes coming around the circle arrows indicate where people with bikes share the intersections and people have ride to people on bikes have the right to use the lane whether or not in the sharing bike lanes
5:39 pm
are for people protected by parks e.r. parked cars and stay out of separated bike lanes unless an emergency dashed bike lanes are a shared zone four for vehicles to change lanes slow bike lanes allow the circles their unusually sprayed before me from other traffic some bike lanes are built to the level higher than the street but lower than the sidewalk they provide a safe separated space sponsor cyclists are around vehicles the box areas are marked with the stencil at intersections act as advanced limit lines for people to garter at a red light this increases the 1r0ir7b9 to drivers people will ride past
5:40 pm
stopped vehicles at the fronltd of the intersection give them room and stop short of limit line behind the bike without objection and cross only after the green light and people cleared the bike box bicycle traffic lights allow people on bikes to proceed while vehicles are stopped be unaware aware of those bike san francisco general hospital but stay alert and only skrans when the vehicle is cleared the intersection let's take a quiz to see what all of learned here we go number one when do month collisions happen did you say in daytime you're correct question two if an intersection is not marched is it still a crosswalk yes
5:41 pm
did you get it right great job one more before we go on what's one of the best things to do to avoid collisions? you can it take a breath pay attention and slow down city streets are crowded and chaotic so seeing everyone every single everything is difficult here's a test how many times did the white team pass the ball? if you answered 11 you're correct but did you notice anything else also be aware ever you're surrounded and remember that is easy 0 miss something if you're not looking for it
5:42 pm
here's some basic principles driving near peep e people from you're driver's seat it is difficult address our mirrors to reduce blind spots people on bicycles maybe be in our blind spot give yourselves plenty of time to react look out stay on the road from building to building not just curve to curve check driveways and behind parked vehicles for people that enter our path turning vehicles are especially dangerous important people walking and collisions often occur when vehicles are making tunnels when you turn remember check for people using the crosswalk before starting you're turn watch for people on bikes
5:43 pm
traveling in the ongoing direction always check our mirrors and blind spots patience pays off take a moment to make sure you're clear while it might feel you'll save time by driving fast or turning without checking you won't save driving only adds a few semiautomatic to our trip a collision can cost you, your job or someone's live here's important things to remember all crosswalks are legal and pedestrian have the right-of-way people cross the street anywhere children and seniors and people with disabilities are the most vulnerable think city strits give buses and streetcars a lot of the space or people returning to catch a train don't block the
5:44 pm
box this creates dangerous situation for people walking how are forced into moving traffic and people bicycling out of the bike lane and people on bikes most city streets are legal for bicyclists even without signs people biking can fall in front of you provide a safe amount of space when passing someone on a bike a minimum of 3 feet is required by law in california and people on bikes prefer to be in the bike lane in for the this is often to avoid accidents give them room people on bikes will stay away from the traffic or watch out for open doors whoops that was a
5:45 pm
close one expect people to go to the front of the light and pass on the right a tap of the horn maybe useful to make you're preservation known but avoid using the horn it may saturday night be someone vehicles anybody right turns are especially dangerous important biking always approach right turns properly signal early and wait for people biking through the intersection move as far to the right to people on bikes can pass on the left let's try a few more questions who are the most vulnerable people on city streets? children? seniors, and people with disabilities why do people on bikes ride close to travel there to avoid
5:46 pm
car doors what is one of the most dangerous situations for people walking and riding bikes? turning vehicles and what can you do to make sure that everyone is safe in any situation? thartsz stay patient and alert and, of course, slow down parking and loading a vehicle on accredit city streets is a challenge weather parking and unloading always check for people in our mirrors and blind spots and on the driver's side with our right turn right hand this causes you to look 40 on your left for
5:47 pm
bicyclists when passersby exiting the vehicle make sure about opening the door know where loading zones are if not loading zones available use side streets never stop in bike lanes or traffic lanes. >> bad weathering and visible rain and fog or low lighting make it hard to see you're vehicle is likely to slide or loss control in eye i didn't controls and create issues for people walking and biking they tried try to avoid pulled and umbrellas and construction get slippery for people the safety thing to do in conditions whether wet or icy or dark slow
5:48 pm
down and drive more carefully remember going fast may on this save you a few semiautomatic but speeding may cause you a life or you're job people walking and biking are vulnerable people can be distracted or make unsafe decisions as a driver the responsibility for safety lies with you a collision could mean the loss of our life or you're job and dealing with the legal implementations could take years or an emotional toll if someone is killed in a crash help us achieve vision zero and everyone can use the streets safely. >> thank you for watch and following the important driving tests your remember we're counting on you
