the stories of our diverse communities. speak today i am 134eu9 ing a request to have our controllers office provide a report for our board of supervisors
11:57 am
regarding a 40 year history of baseline set asides of san francisco. as you know our budget has reached about 9 billion dollars. and 2 thirds of that is actually not discretionary and so i know that when we submit to voters ideas for funding proposals for baseline set asides and we take each item an subject on individual basis that they can be very attractive to voters and they often do pass. but also they do tie our hands for future boards up to 30 years plus. impacting future generations of discretionary spending capability here in san francisco. my goal is for this report to really show us the history of the baseline an set as sides that we have here in san francisco for the last 4 decades and to show how the impact our
11:58 am
cities spending capability i do want to thank supervisor pest kin for joining me on this every. i again i think that often we larry about proposals that are that we don agree with. we don't disagree with fundamental. we want to support senior services an park maintenance an children's an families. but again we do need to get a handle on how it is that we are check actively passing so many baselines set asides that really impact again 2350u9 tour generations in san francisco. so that is a report that will kick off future efforts potential legislation potential proposal. an to lastly i want to submit an request to adjourn our meeting today in honor of a police officer who had passed away police officer stewart mull ver who worked at the airport bureau an passed away while on duty. he was someone who had
11:59 am
responded to the {aeurb} ian a {stphraoeut} situation. while at the airport. helping passengers ie vac weight an guiding those who were able to make it out to safety. he had a very quirky personality that make everyone like him and he made friends with everyone while working with the airport with dispatchers field maintenance personnel anyone you name it. so we are very sad to hear about officer mull ver passing away so today i'd like to adjourn in his memory. spec supervisor yee. thank you madam clerk. today i'm going to be be introducing a few items. so i hope you would be patient with me today. last year i passed legislation to start into a majorities of our cities department of vehicles. tell man particulars a proven technology
12:00 pm
with benefits including increasing safety leads to substantial cost saving has been used as a tools to correct train an coach to encourage driving habit and a shown to have environmental habits in reducing emission. sips passage we have nearly 4 thousand of our cities vehicles installed with this technology. although it is early on in the collection with the data there is indication of trans mean seen an department identifying policy changes in order to increase safety. san francisco is a division 0 city an committed to work toward a goal to 0 traffic deaths by 20/204. we have a language way to go. in an tragically we have already had 2 deaths in 2017. we must do everything in our power to
12:01 pm
eliminate these absolutely preventable fatality. working with the support of city administrators advocates and with the union we were able to come to an agreement to {tpraeupb} our staff about tell mathematics with will allow for the most successful outcomes. typically san francisco leads the nation in setting precedent. in this case we are actually behind the curve. new york city police department has had similar technology for over a decade. i don't low county {sphreufz} department has similar technology. i'm introducing the expansion of technology for the law enforcement an public safety department. this will allow us to work toward meeting our goals and also be a 2 available for the departments used to identify trends an target increase public safety strategies. i look toward
12:02 pm
to sharing specific on the positive impacts of the current technology. and to working over law enforcement an public safety department and expansion of the tell mathematics. with their agreed upon {tkpwroel} of increasing the safety of our streets an i 245u7bg i'd like to thank super rise or kim for co sponsoring this. the next item is i have to say then this next item proves i'm a glut enforce punishment. but i am making another attempt to come together on solutions to address an issue that affects all our district which is prop recalling. it is civil hearing on neighborhood property crimes an conversation with public safety officers we pass legislation to support focus attention on this issue at the
12:03 pm
local police station level. the neighborhood property crimes required stronger coordination city wide across public safety department an emphasized the importance of community policing. it is also provided it also provided flexibility so that police captains an their staff can adapt to new crime trends an allocate the resource accordingly much the ordinance went through legislative process and was passed by the board last year with 7 to 3 vote but it was quickly vetoed. so in addition to ballot initiative proposition r called for centralized crime unit an requires san francisco police department to allocate 3 percent of the police staff to this unit if we were to meet officers as dictated by the charter. well
12:04 pm
it didn't pass. so it left us with nothing at this point. so over the last month or so i've been thinking well should we bring it back to the table? and i've chosen to bring it back to the table and i'm hoping that there will be more thorough discussion. especially from the mayor's office. to add into what is necessary to get this done and i'm look forward to working with this new board. and the mayor. and a newly appointed chief scott and communities leaders to address this chronic issue. the residents of san francisco have also spoken loud an clear. we don't need to go to ballot box to provide property crimes more focus attention. can we finally put the good politics aside an work
12:05 pm
on something proactively? i think so. i am open to having discussions on how we can make this a {hraepblg} late tive impactful. i want to thank the police department and the officers who attempted to do more with less. i'd like to thank supervisor for co sponsoring this what is this ? item. sorry. the third item that i'd like to introduce is that something that was featured in new york times the san francisco chronicle as well as the examiner last week. typically making hid lines with great but i have to admit this was a bit of a bitter sweet. the source feature were about the challenges for people who want to raise a family in the city. san francisco is
12:06 pm
notoriously known as a city of no children. only 18 percent of the household have children compared to the national average of 29 point 4. percent. only 13 point 4 percent of our entire population is under 18. by 24th it is estimated san francisco will grow about another 200 thousand even if maintain our low child percentage of 13 point 4 percent by 24th we would still need housing for additional 27 thousand children. while we are losing families we cannot accept this as a reality. we have to do something about it. my vision to reverse this trend and push the envelope about ways we can make san francisco a city for families of all income
12:07 pm
levels. in july 2015 i introduced a resolution requesting the resolution of a policy paper an design guidelines for family friendly housing that was unanimously supported by the board of supervisor at the time. we can aspire to building these type of housing. last week we held an informational hearing with the planning commission and it was filled with robust discussion around this issue. even at transportation demand management plan ordinance that passed land use committee yesterday included family children element to it. i hope that this is the starting point for many future discussions on how best we can build an make the city 1 for children an families again. this is why i'm requesting us to meet as a committee of the whole to
12:08 pm
hear about the findings an recommendations from the draft paper developed by the planning department. i think all of you have share my passion for children an families. as a new grandfather this has renewed my {kpheurplt} to maintaining a vibrant city for generation toss come. i want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the planning director planning director john ram an remarkable staff sheila and anne who created this draft on paper. and colleagues i hope you will support this motion and i look forward to working with you on this important issue. [bettina shuford:] my next item is i'm calling for a hearing for an update on a work and next steps
12:09 pm
for our children our family counsel. as you recall this counsel was created after the passage of prop 6's c. in 2014 to align efforts across the city and partnership with the departments the school district an community. with the goal to promote increases accessibility and enhanced effectiveness of programs an services for children youth an families. this counsel work is critical an cannot come at a more important time because we are continued to lose one of the cities most important assets. which is families and children. and city's we must support of the work of the count an ensure our leadership department an school district an communities work is coordinated and aligned to increase efficiency address gaps an services an our
12:10 pm
focusing on issues that most impact family flight. our children families counsel outcome for was approved one year ago and this hearing is an opportunity to have the counsel present their strategies an plans to best meet unmet needs of our cities families an i want to thank supervisor kim an fewer for the co sponsorship of this hearing. the next item is really a sad thing to me even to introduce but with heavy rain storm and impact on residents an their properties today i am requesting a hearing to explore what puc and the department of public works the short strategies to reduce the efforts of flooding during heavy storms. which severely impacts certain neighborhoods in the city. particularly dis {treublgt} 7,
12:11 pm
8, 9, 11 and the great highway area. my district there are 2 priority neighborhoods which experienced heavy flooding an received assistance from puc which is 15th an with a won't a and ingleside terrace. in other district the this include the upper great highway area. and that is heavily affected in district 4. the border of district eight and 11 on k-i uga avenue is affected. maze an 17th an [folsomfollow some] areas are heavily affected areas. and district 7 beside the chi oga avenue street there is the mission terrace neighborhoods that are also greatly affected. there
12:12 pm
are several long-term sewer improvement projects and resilience studies scheduled in this district an calling to consider long-term strategies. i know puc is working on their strategies and i'm looking forward to hearing from them. so. i want to thank supervisor [tangtanktanning], fewer, {saf} fee, and ronin for co sponsoring this hearing today. [bettina shuford:] thank you supervisor yee. president breed. speaker: thank you colleagues. just a few items here today. i'll start by saying that supervisor percent kin isn't only person being featured in a film. i have my own film that is about graffiti an my graffiti legislation an an
12:13 pm
artist that is famous for being i guess public graffiti artist. his name is bang c. and the documentary is called saving bang c an that is playing at the roxie tomorrow night and this week end and there is a clip in there with me. maybe a small clip but it's a clip nevertheless. so anyway there is my hollywood debut. colleagues as you know, this is been a tough monday for muni. and i'm finished with the movie thing. i'm onto the next item. it's been a tough month or muni an on news years day the next best predictions for the arrival time stopped working. apps an signs at the bus stop gave wildly inaccurate information about when the next bus or train may come. riders were greeted with the signs saying the bus would be there in 75 minutes or maybe
12:14 pm
not at all. this made it incredibly difficult for people to plan the trips. muni riders gave up or drive and call t and c and a lot of folks who didn't have that option. unless people waiting unfairly {-pb} unnecessarily in the cold in the rain and it shook confidence in the public transit system in which 7 hundred thousand riders rely on daily. i want muni riders to know the board of supervise others hears your concerns an we will work with the s-f mpa to make sure the problems are addressed. supervisor [fairlyferrel] has been working with mta on issues as well an i'd like to thank for his advocacy. here's is what we know so far. the vehicles prediction called next muni is transmitted by a t a p t's wireless cell phone network. since muni was the first transit agency to adopt such
12:15 pm
a system the infrastructure installed in 2002 relies on 2 g wireless network. 2 g yes. it is very outdated an at&t is deactivating it nationwide. muni learn of the plan deactivation in 2012 and has been {worb} to go up grade muni shelters an vehicles but they were not prepared for did not expect the 2 g deactivation to start when it did and that left a 150 trains and more than 500 busses without the necessary equipment that allows next bus screens to predict their arrival. muni has been working to upgrade these vehicles each night as busses an trains finished service their modems are being replaced an row programmed to connect to higher grade 3g network. as of today muni has more than 9 percent coverage across the city an expect to have a hundred percent coverage by the end
12:16 pm
of this week. i'm glad muni is mostly through the woods and this acute crisis but there are 2 unavoidable troops here. this should have never happened in the first place. even on a good day the next bus system is below par often misjudging when the vehicles will arrive or displaying ghost but that is don't ever actually show up. muni needs to do better. they have to do better. and i will work with mta leadership is am could go today to evaluate their next step. i want to see if forensic analysis of what when wrong this month as well as a plan that not only for how mta is responding to this failure but how we are going to improve vehicles production moving forward. i look forward to seeing their answers an i will continue advocating for hundreds of family of san franciscans who depend on muni to be reliable an
12:17 pm
predictable. we [ohowe] them better than what has happened this month and especially with the expectations of our new incredible looking clean trains that will probably hit the streets this summer. we need to be prepared for that as well. so. that is one thing and the last 2 items i have today colleagues are 2 in {phepl} more iums. one is for someone i've nine for so long miss nancy watson. i want to adjourn the meeting in her honor. she passed away on january 14th of this year. she was from louisiana but moved to san francisco in the 1950 worked as a health care providers until she retired. her and my grandmother were really close. i grew up going to her house a lot when i was a kid. she
12:18 pm
raised her granddaughter who i was close to and is like family to me and it has been an amazing life as a kid to have grandmother's like miss nancy watson who always had food for you or always had a kind word. always had a lecture. always just had a warm home filled with love. and she will be dearly missed by her amazing family. i also would like to do an in {phepl} morium in memory of who passed away on december 2016. her son moved to st. francis square in my district in 1989 and they became heavily involved in the community. for many years she was a {tkhaeur} of the building an grounds committee at st. francis square which he was nope as fiesty an
12:19 pm
dedicated advocate an community member. upon retiring from the commission contributed her good spirit an photography skills to document key movement within st. francis square an photos for circling the square. eye rent as a fierce advocate of solar electricity which led to the conservation committee installing solar pam's in 2012. she will be greatly missed by her friends her family. and she was an amazing spirit. i had an opportunity to attend her 90 th birthday party. and that lady had some serious moves. an she was fun. she had an incredible smile. she was a leo just like me. maybe that's why we got a long so well. she was one of the sweetest ladies i've
12:20 pm
known. she succeeded in death by her daughter wendy. may she rest in peace and i forgot to mention a in regards to miss nancy watson she is survived by her son he will like a watson an with that madam clerk the rest i submit. speaker: seeing no other names on the roster i believe that concludes the introduction of new business. let's go to public comment. the up to 2 minutes on items within the subject 3459 er jurisdiction of the board to include the minutes. and item 58 including {whrorpbtd} you go into public into closed session and the rest of the items on the adoption with that reference to calendar. please direct your remarks to the board as a whole and not to individual supervisor. speakers using interpretation assistance will be allowed twice the amount of time to testify an if you would like your document to be
