3:13 am
continued authorities program the architectural on the seawall project started through the rivers and harbors act of 1952 and amended as of in conflict to the united states corps of engineers that requires at least 4 elected state senators the continuing authors program to delegate the authority down to the local the division of united states corps of engineers for approval for smaller scale projects that are managed at that level we move faster and allow us to avoid waiting for legislative people to come along will be drafts for the united states corps of engineers one of 3 a has to do with with coastal flooding infrastructure as i
3:14 am
mentioned the united states corps of engineers to fascinated those had recently created a production center for capping for the continued authorities program for capping projects in sausalito most of us have seen this lied a seawall the area in question at the border of older and newer sections of seawall how we got to where we are in 2012, we made a request to the san francisco corp. for assistance under the 101203 actually a one-203 or 205 both are correct. >> by 2016 he you said for those will volunteer first time to get the studies underway to
3:15 am
make a finding of whether or not they should procedure in the federal interest that is worthwhile for the federal government to undertake in 2016 i think they department of homeland security that was cost beneficial and trying to move forward the next step in the process to have a cost schaffer agreement for the study phase for the potential construction resolution it is limited to $10 million for the designated authority we're focusing on the muni tunnel and the bart entrance the embarcadero near the ferry building. >> one thing to point out while we're undertaking this it authority project the smaller scale didn't preclude us we're
3:16 am
exploring moving forward materially with the large-scale recreation process the distinction between the two are parallel the general investigation process is not limited to $10 million but makes it takes a long time and requires steps that are not always predictable and the one thing we for us katherine will that the project manager for the united states corps of engineers and lead both of those projects so no chance there will be you know winding away from each other without be coordinated and for the smaller scale the modeling the economic modeling asset mapping and other types of things all that information will
3:17 am
be available from one study to the on the capping study etc. excuse me - >> the tentative schedule an $800,000 for the study half will be the port and by the federal government looking like wrapping up in at the end of 2018 with another decision document have an array of materials to construct the materials and staff will be back to seek authorization to enter into that agreement for the construction constructed fixes. >> at that that the cost-share for the construction phase is two-thirds 1/3rd the port will be provided 1/3rd match
3:18 am
so what is before you today is that the federal government cost sharing agreement that is the essentially the same as under the united states corps of engineers for all cap 3 projects the key is do study phase we have an equal cost phase with the united states corps of engineers and allows for credits to make up for some of that it has the standard nationwide upper limits $1.5 million for the study and six months inform how to do it our estimates are much better than that looking for $800,000 half from the federal government and completion of the fourth quarter of 2018 so those are the key terms as of this morning the united states corps of engineers has agreed to not expect the documents to change from what you have presented in the packet
3:19 am
that's it i'm available to answer any questions and faster to be joined by the united states corps of engineers for more depth. >> so moved. >> second. >> is there any public comment on 11 a any public comment on leveling a public comment is closed. consume commissioner kounalakis. >> okay we just authorized on rfp for another look at the seawall for a lot more money and a lot bigger project explain to me how this has been with the other project that we're pursuing. >> so the in terms of engagement with the united states corps of engineers i'm sorry caveat with the seawall manager that planned on being
3:20 am
here unable to join us i'll do the best i can. >> we can help. >> colleagues pitching in here so the rfp that the commission approved for a broader study is one of the things that is contemplated in terms of how to connects to the united states corps of engineers is that for the larger united states corps of engineers the general investigation project leads to one hundred of million dollars dollars limited by our ability to match that process has certain the legislative action i mentioned one the water resources act and also appropriations of funds from the united states corps of engineers start studying to kickoff their project an option available to us to take on the study portion of that ourselves and not wait on a rare new start that the
3:21 am
congress level but makes kickoff ourselves and in a way in coordination with the united states corps of engineers to handle the studies to further the large-scale the big scale projects so those consultants which will be active in august. >> i'm going to step in a little bit here. >> so what you approved it general fund first of all, for a consultant team to do the planning phase of seawall this is very broad scope of work to identify go from conceptual to really fine-tune in terms of risk by location those are the planning phases to identify where we're first available dollars to address the emergency repair, emergency most risk at at risk areas of waterfront that
3:22 am
interact how we respond to a big earthquake this to the have a study for federal determination in an area of the waterfront that currently shows flood i'm using a one hundred year storm the united states corps of engineers is one very great potential source of funding for the large seawall project so on the general obligation bond we have 3 had and $50 million no 2018 that is down payment to a 3 to $5 million project we're looking for multiple sources over time to address the 3 mile stretch of seawall i hope that helps to answer the yes requester. >> ours with the army study a. >> an implementations of an desire phase of phase one of improvements. >> it didn't include the
3:23 am
entire waterfront only one part. >> this is just this one section. >> so, yeah mostly to that question the united states corps of engineers - so what we're doing looking for other outside sources as director said the united states corps of engineers but makes even at the core two separate processes we're engaged in we are talking about now the little one. >> right. >> and only looking at and spending $500,000 for the study have to seawall and has strategic think advantages we're following up on an official finding of the united states corps of engineers that for at least this scale that it is worth it in the easy of federal government it repays them more than a dollar for every dollar they spend and has certain
3:24 am
advantages. >> commissioner vice president brandon. >> thank you for this report i'm happy we are collaborating with the united states corps of engineers and hopefully, will be one of many to come. >> so this is a really good presentation thank you. >> commissioner katz. >> i'm also pleased and a while back we were talking about the efforts on the seawall we had to go after the federal funding opportunity and get added partners to help us in the project as director forbes pointed out coming up with the down payment we need side funds i'm existed to be partnering with the united states corps of engineers to look at options. >> i agree with might fellow commissioners the united states corps of engineers they're a great resource we're building a coalition we're talking about 3
3:25 am
to have 3 to $5 million is maul with small by the definitely want them on our side this is huge this is one of the biggest projects ever. >> by a long mile; right? is really it is a really big for the city and huge undertaking you think the dual threat of sea level rise it is a complex challenge. >> i'm glad we're there thank you. appreciate it. >> colleagues all in favor of the resolution >> opposed? >> item item no. 11b - request authorization to advertise for competitive bids for construction contract no. 2781, crane cove park construction package 2, park improvements. >> good afternoon, commissioners director forbes david with the planning and development i too am pinch hitting for stephen

city development california, inc and associated public benefits. >> good afternoon, commissioners brad benson on behalf of the pier 70 team this presentation today is an exciting one about all the public benefits we hope that the pier 7028 acre sites will deliver to the port and the surrounding neighborhood i really want to hand it off to sarah dennis phillips the office of economic workforce development pier 70 project director. >> so she'll walk you through to the presentation and have jack vice president of forest city here to answer any questions should they come up thank you. >> good afternoon, commissioners pleasure to be with you today we're here to take you through the draft level overview we're
3:39 am
trying to get in public benefits as we develop the study oewd has been before you i think a number of times to talk about the southern bay strategy pier 70 we've approved 3 of the projects in the strategy pier 70 is the next one up and that's what we're here to talk about i think that is helpful to remember we're looking this project in a context of something much larger and point in past presentations we're looking at negotiating to apply to all projects along the bacons to address all the things we want to see out of projects in relatively consistent way that didn't mean we're trying to apply a one-size-fits-all what 24 brings is different we're hoping by looting them together when they add up in 15 years and developed we've been able to
3:40 am
appetites together all the sum for more than transportation and more open space benefits but makes have a consistent complete neighborhood framework up and down the shoreline. >> so i'm going to take you to topic by point. >> a 33 percent of policy unit westbound the 28 acre being affordable the way to get to that is laid down on the slide for all the residential unit and as you recall prop f for the residential buildings being rental rather than for sale all will have 20 percent onsite unit provide for low income and 60 percent of ami we'll also have 3 dedicated household furniture affordable pharmacies totals three hundred and thirty unit between the parcels the development of those parcels building the buildings from the
3:41 am
ground up will be paid for onsite sources tax increment from the hoe down yard and the economic development and the in lui development fees gets us the 99 to one million dollars to fund the gap on the three hundred and thirty up affordable housing units we're working with the mayor's office of housing on a district 10 southern bay front marketing plan for all the affordable housing units not only in 42 but makes you up and down the shoreline to get the word out to the people in the neighborhood we want to apply we have a neighborhood preference program that the mayor's office of housing it administering and will apply that to the rental, building how had plays out on the site the 20 percent rental buildings will be happening where fees are paid and primary
3:42 am
identification of where the affordable housing sites maybe all of them within walking distance to the children's playground in the plan transportation there is two large component and actually a third as well a big part of plan onsite transportation demand management which we in the planning role is toddler called tdm and forest city toward a 20 percent reduction what is expected to happen through a number of the way a transit pass program so get the people using muni and bart a shurment service not just assessable to residents but makes to the neighborhood and one or more bike stations proposed from the dog patch and up the bay front interesting the bike share and bicycle parking
3:43 am
spaces and lockers the project is paying a transportation sustainability fee we expect to be to $50 million we're working closely with sfmta to find the projects that really move the needle in getting people out of the cars and making things better a couple of these i'll stick to the slide there are a number of transit improvements of 10 muni line the 12 muni line, extending those and improving and new line it is tentatively called it will go east west from the castro into pier 70 and turn around and provide an east west connection and a ferry landing you put a lot of priority and a lot of the fees can go to help to make
3:44 am
those priorities happen environmental sustainability a key element as with all the major developments we're working on the project meets or steady all local codes this is a given i didn't list them all the green building are better use policies a number of them you know the city has coma a long time in the last 45 years adopting the strongest green policies in the country this will meet all those and looting a number of things to do on a hard building basis but makes we have a district of 28 acres that is a gray or black water system to use the water and solar lighting on the streets and parks district a based thermal heating solar based and thermal energy
3:45 am
loop we're not sure but makes things that we will explore sea level rise obviously a priority you guys have been discussing today this project like the mission rock will sure the project is protected if sea level rise maim by elevating the building and open space and using the shoreline as a buffer space what i think that really exciting we're working on a new long term a tax paid by the building onsite to create a long term ongoing funding stream for sea level rise and shoreline protection and that's supposed to our estimate are just estimates it can produce one point one to $3 billion over the next year's and open space you heard a significant amount about
3:46 am
that at the d-4-d about a week ago 9 arcs onsite and looking many of the parks i included a couple of slides i'll not go into that much the 9 acres that are proposed more than dog patch so represents a doubling of the amount of assessable open space in the neighborhood and the economic fist what are we going doing for jobs estimates are 10 thousand permanent and 11 thousand construction a thirty percent local hire we're working to flush out the lbe commitments to local businesses here and there are a number of components to that plan i think that are will help the neighborhood in particular looking at an outreach coordinator to work with the community that are surrounding and looking at 345eshg9 and outreach with nonprofit that work in the area we have those
3:47 am
direct connects easy looking at agreements typically do that with security maintenance what would be exciting training people in entry-level tech might be web-based or market and a significant amount of tenant to fourth how to make a direct connection between the tenants and the offices. >> arts industrial and public facilities art and inclusively has been the core of this project since the start the muni have a commitment they'll have new work spaces onsite at rent concurrent with what they're paying in terms of ever burden and developing a new arts facility obesity with a local nonprofit has the ability to work with new market tax credits
3:48 am
or others donors to ramp up the funding for the program and provide the below-market rate leasing to organizations be it performing arts what have you to flush auto the keksdz with nonprofit and with the appropriate art organizations might be and industrial facilities we call pdr priority production distribution and repair a commitment there will be a commitment within the cba for a minimum of 50 thousand square feet we're hoping to steady and not jew just the retail and then childcare rather than paying fees we're looking at this providing basis to meet 80 and one hundred spaces historic resources obviously another core from the beginning the you go union iron works historic district is something the port in motion several years
3:49 am
ago this project will help to flush it out 3 of the key buildings will be restored and rehabilitated building inspection 12 and 21 and building two and then ear also working for forest city the port had been working on interpretation plan for the district that can be embedded spot open space and the buildings so one of the final slides how to make sure that actually happens it will be embedded in into into the development agreement we'll have a binding commitment for the public benefits to be secure how it works out as we go to the build out at each phases the developers will come forward with a base for the directors approval and estates the conforms with the plan you'll adopt this july but makes the affordable housing plan, the transportation demand management
3:50 am
plan and any other society benefits coming with that space there will be a compliance review report before we sign off to allow it to move forward we're going to look at goals and the targets through the plan and oewd staff we're working on that now we have potentially three or four district attorneys are monitoring that and several more in oewd 3 people that look at the development agreement and making sure the public benefits are met and supported by the port staff as well and this is a slide you saw last week with that, i'm available to answer any questions thank you is there any public comment on 12 a, public benefits review? any public comment seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioner kounalakis >> well, this is really great,
3:51 am
thank you so much for the presentation every time we have another overview of pier 70 more and more of the wonderful benefits emerge and it is just a terrific project for one enthusiastic of seeing that progressing for all the public benefits that will be coming along with that thank you. >> commissioner katz. >> very exciting thank you and i think of - the things we work on this is one of the most existing and the opportunity for a difference for all san franciscans as we build out this area a i have a couple of questions and beyond the scope of the presentation but makes in terms of the residential unit will will be built and the affordability will that include
3:52 am
the multiple bedroom unit that's a a problem we've not built enough and parks for the kids to make sure. >> with the majority of new development and the projects that we approved either there the planning department or other agencies in the past couple of years put in a minimum 40 percent two bedrooms and three bedrooms so. >> that's with the units that are dedicated to affordable. >> it applies to the whole unit they have to build to the market-rate. >> and 3 right of parcels will be 100 percent affordable is that a little bit like siloing. >> we don't think of that that way one of the things that works well, in the city mix of everything with accessary dwellings we have the same assess tote services that market-rate person has
3:53 am
i think what we've seen in the past whether or not in the building doesn't foster the integration most of activity happens on the street level rather than in the building as and 100 percent affordable we're able to provide the services whether we're relocating hope sf resident with greater need or homeless or families that point childcare on site it provides a mix of both and having it within the same neighborhood we have the integration we need. >> talking about some of the clean tax systems the sustainable systems we're putting that in there have you thought about onsite solar for the facilities you talked about the solar street lighting and several water systems any focus
3:54 am
on - >> solar is considered for the building basis we're not mandating it our better roots policy look at a mixes of usable open space and solar for the use we want to make sure we use that we're going to looking that by a building by building and hopefully, we'll be able to use that. >> the last thing looking at maybe i've missed that the irish will be a playground. >> yes. >> i assume after clean up is thoroughly done wasn't that a former next to a power station there's a risk management plan the port plan in the area you're talking about the hoe down yard and any sort of use requires clean fill on top of the existing to make sure that people are protected. >> as we're looking it is not
3:55 am
playground the standards are different depending on the used in terms of - >> the risk management plan sets forth the standards for those types of parks to include the area so it is safe. >> okay. >> and very excited so thank you. >> commissioner vice president brandon. >> thank you very much for this presentation i'm happy to have a presentation a couple of weeks ago that is clear and easy to understand i also had a question i'm not sure commissioner katz got the answer i wanted regarding the b and the 100 percent and 20 percent what is the difference between those 20 and one hundred. >> so really the ways we're getting the actual unit will be 5 to 6 hundred affordable housing units are in two ways
3:56 am
the buildings with mixed in as part of the 20 percent that means 100 percent building 20 will be restricted to low income families and the other 80 percent will be like any other market-rate building within the 100 percent go affordable building all the unit will be r50ik9 to families of low income or other need as we work and build out the site that's the two ways when we talk about the building 100 percent affordable buildings we need money for the restriction so the site brings the land that is wonderful but makes it still costs us close to you know about probable locally three hundred and thirty thousands of local subsidies for construction of affordable units but makes we build so that will come from condo on the building that show fees we don't intend
3:57 am
to had had opt out within the condominium buildings it is often challenging the affordable having the income to be able to purchase an affordable for sale building is challenging and tend to see in our condominium buildings often high hoas we're not allowed to subsidize through the inclusionary program it intend to workout if we have a strong revenues to build the one hundred. >> the fees will be condo. >> yes. and no permitted home buyers for affordable in this project. >> one of the affordable parcels for for sale building would be possible but makes not something we're looking at. >> i'm happy to see that you've
3:58 am
created a fund for the stream of sea level rise i think that is absolutely wonderful and especially look for in all our projects regarding the 10 thousand permitted jobs and 11 thousand construction jobs when will that be thoughtfully and what we will actually be doing on this project. >> as we bring back the project four informational this summer you'll see a job program attached to the d da and our podium will have our hiring agreement attached to the document so they will come before you the thirty percent mandatory local hire you'll see those. >> you've done a lot work this is helpful so thank you very much. >> very thorough very good
3:59 am
job. >> director forbes any comments. >> sure you've captured this is a great project all over the place transformative this is a long haul that many staff have been involved in going back over a decade and great to be at the point we're approaching approvals it is a tremendous effort and exciting for everyone to be gets us over the finish line to see the change to the dog patch and something we look forward and sarah and the team putting it together have a separately throughout through for the public to see ♪ advance of the approval it is a fine thing there is a plethora of transportations to housing for the environment is important to call it out a lot of work to
4:00 am
get those public benefits into the project so thank you to the staff and forest city for working so hard and making that a great project >> very good thank you very much appreciate it. >> madam secretary next item, please. >> and item kvmd kchld development, jobs and housing trends and accomplishments. >> commissioners good afternoon for the record john rahaim director forbes great to see you and glad to be here i've been coming annually for the last three or four years and pleased to be here i will say to start and finish
4:01 am
this i'm really every year a collaboration between our staff and my staff has been growing and more constructive and as you'll see in any presentation we're overlapping in the work more and more everyday and great collaboration and director forbes history is part of a that but makes certainly the w40e8 staff is great to work with over the last couple of years i'm going to give you a brief presentation about the issues and he growth challenges and talk about briefing about the areas of overlap between the port and planting they're growing everyday and siege much more overlap to give us a sense of city's growth since 2010 it has been growing in the city we've seen 10 thousand resident a year and a couple of years more than that something on the order of one thousand per month
4:02 am
we've seen in terms of population we've seen one and 25 thousand new jobs that is a little bit out-of-date closer to one hundred plus an extraordinary job growth and seeing finally in the last two years somewhat of a catch up on housing prudence that of those 15 hundred units a year more than tripled that over the last 3 is something we're trying to keep up with the demand one of the carts of cow hollow crisis today a number i find compelling and telling i don't have a slide the regional jobs housing since 2010 the region has produced excuse me - in excess of 6 hundred thousand jobs and we have produced 60 thousand housing units so if that's not
4:03 am
an indication of a housing crisis i don't think of nothing that is the region has to do catch up with the housing production and in san francisco i think that producing over 20 percent of housing we're doing our part i've been a side note working with the neighbors and cities to get them to do their part here you see the sustainable strategies is the regional plan often referred to as as planned bay area that is based on state law that was pass several years ago somebody needs to do something 35 requires all region to have a regional land use to transportation plan that plan it shows an expected growth to 2024 of 6 hundred 0,000 housing units and 6 thousand jobs we've already gone over half of the
4:04 am
preksz projections so we're far studying the growth pace, if you will, that was projected when was plan was adopted 4 years ago and you'll see that san francisco shares to maintain 15 percent of regional growth and to produce about 92 housing units which is will accommodate over 2000 people and see that we're projected to grow by one and 90 thousand jobs but makes we've grown by over one and thirty thousand jobs and this was a projection that was typical for the period between 2010 and 2025 so other pace of growth is much more substantial than projected in those numbers when the first bay area plan was produced three years ago what is i mean quickly i think it is always hope to step back and
4:05 am
figure out the abstinence intense growth we've identified 4 strategies one is there a return to cities particularly with the baby boomers my generation and the millennial generation those two cohorts are the largest in the american population those two groups are the in fact, what is fueling urban growth right now and happening at the same time and the kind of perfect storm in the bay area that return to cities is happening at the same time that the technology industry is exploding with growth they've left to the city's clove growth monopoly none of us erupted and we're no did ready for the second factor since 2006 before the revision recession we've seen a decline in driving in the population as a whole and seen a
4:06 am
decline in car ownership which we think in the city is a good thing it actually means people are using transit and obviously the third thing the technology industry in particular not just tech industries but makes the reverse of the psychos and 70s the population was moving to the endurances now the population is moving back to the city and the companies are following so this is kind of the exact same thing that happens in the psychos and 70s now in reverse and thinking about land use as a way of reducing green house gas and how we think more holistically about the connection between land use and transportation all that creates the champs wear challenged particularly with the creation of a city it is the affordable housing issue is potentially the issue that keeps
4:07 am
me up at night we're soon to be recommending to the board of supervisors our recommendations on the inclusionary the changes for the inclusionary housing which is been a point of much discussion in city hall over the past month and moeblthd and their resilience issues and the notion of making places that are special in the work place how do we do this and make that happen this map shows the areas we've done specific neighborhood plans for over the past 15 years it is the area of the city that is seen the most growth and the ear that is best connected to transit and other transportation systems and it is where the land use have allowed the growth to happen in rough terms 80 percent of city's growth will happen in 80 percent of plan this is the areas you see highlighted and
4:08 am
much was the land you control the project you've heard at pier 70 the most imminent but makes on the port is playing a huge role in neurology or enable 2, 3, 4 to make sure that happens the way it's benefiting the community i thought i'd highlight some of the various areas of overlap the planning department are working on a number of obviously strategy initiatives and infrastructure elements obviously with the seawall is critically important to you and we're happy to are part of making that happen there is the work on the southern by the way, front and connect 19sf is our citywide transportation that is led by the planning department it is actually a 50-year vision not appropriate to call it a plan a 50 years vision how we think about transportation in
4:09 am
the future that will then influence various planning efforts along the way we are in this effort we're doing 50 year landlord projections half a century out and obviously sea level rise and i'll talk about that and your waterfront land use plan update we're involved with the sleeve we're involved with and on top of those initiatives the projects in our shop as well as your pier 70 you heard about and mission rock and seawall are far under the environmental review process the back land the alcatraz and other projects that is something that is in our ceqa shop and pier 90 and the fire boat station no matter the others are highlighted single projects last year and small we're working on both from ancillary standpoint
4:10 am
and the entitlement stand point we're very much joined at the hip with director forbes in your efforts as we move forward quickly on some of the efforts connect sf i'm excited about it really is laying you out a long-term visions for transportation when you been the lead time it takes to actually design fund and build a major transportation project it is not inappropriate to think 50 years in advance when you think about the fact that federal fund is as tenuous and the fact that someone else agree second bay crossing that is being discussed regional can easily take 20 to thirty years to clear and fund so we really need to think in terms of decades that's what we're trying to do it is led by the department with mta and the ta and oewd and it really
4:11 am
kickoff the overall umbrella that will put the city in position for regional transportation on the table with our regional partners i'm excited about that one of the public workshops this summer we've devolve into in more detail the southern bay waterfront on port property it is extraordinarily number of projects 75 to percent the growth will happen here with the jobs and housing units from mission rock in the north to executive park in the south and obviously a big project the hunters point shipyard and candle stick point moving forward with the major phased first of development in candle stick point and we're working with them on accommodating more job spaces in the shipyard part of that project
4:12 am
but makes this will have a huge public benefit in the long run not the least is public and waterfront assess with the greenway and all the other benefits with respect to sea level rise ii have to shout out to byron who is co-chairing with our staff with the sea level rise task force a fantastic collaboration ahead of every city in this aspect in terms of work and a diagram how we see this progress playing out this is kind of the continuous loop with the accessibility of risk we're in the process working with every major depth to do an assessment of their facilities and leading to an adoption plan and monitoring but makes importantly this is a loop;
4:13 am
right? an opportunity loop trying to learn from building and upgrading science and so on this is a very important piece of work and you may have heard we're fortunate to receive a grant from the rockefeller foundation modeled after new york city and hurricane sandy we're excited about are rockefeller has almost fully fund that we're pleased and excited a regional effort each county will have a site they select to be part of that process so a very important regional effort so that's just a very brief overview he know there is a lot we can tube and details i thought i'll 0 give you a quick snapshot and a shout out to the port staff for working
4:14 am
collaboratively with us on those projects. >> thank you, john any any public comment on 12 b seen none, public comment is closed. commissioner katz. >> thank you, thank you very much i feel i learn something new and appreciate the collaboration that ask now concurring between the two departments and also appreciate the fact we're ahead of most other cities wrr79 to the sea level rise and the climatic change it is amazing when you believe in science. >> i agree. >> (laughter). one just and it is a lot of information to digest is there my anticipation so the 20, 40 projection we've hit 40 percent of the judge jobs and thirty
4:15 am
percent in increased resident do we - are those numbers going to get readjusted >> the short answer is yes, we're doing that right now the abag their updating it and in about a year although not quite sure but makes not projection beyond 2020 so there will be likely some slow down but makes it is true to say the last 8 years has preceded the projection and we're not prepared for that phase of growth. >> we see that everywhere around the city and one specific
4:16 am
question you referenced no changes and sort of the peak of driving which i recognize but makes at the same time, we're also seeing a number of tmc cars coming into the city how did he account. >> we're trying to think smart, heer been the tmc issues and we advertised - unclear the exact impact we've received data new york city conducted looking at the impact of i'm going home to my city by the bay tmcs and they're having impacts we're trying to get smarter we don't have good data partly because the companies don't want
4:17 am
to give us the information and been given thought to locations rather than the cashes xhavbl circle. >> that is part of our thinking in terms of especially in places we think about market street and other major downtown streets where we can say yes or no like the other programs we specified the locations. >> i'm thinking with all the development along the waterfront take that into the planning process soorm. >> but makes again, thank you very much for coming and updating us. >> commissioner vice president brandon. >> thank you so much for this report it is very informative and mind-boggling how are we continuing to deal with the growth as such a rapid pace seeing the actual number is mind-boggling i'm happy to see the sea level rise is at the be
4:18 am
forefront of all the planning effort and i really appreciate the pg&e collaboration between the two departments lead by director forbes with you but makes this is wonderful and it is great to see and it is just amazing the amount well maybe that all the projects we have going have to go through planning i have one question regarding connect sf and that is we're planning for growth are we are doing my planning for existing resources. >> very appropriate question we get it a lot are we doing this for new folks or everyone who is really both it has to be so you know it's looking at a kind of a long term vision how to improve the transit systems not only the existing transit systems and improve what we have
4:19 am
today a big priority for mta frshths but makes also to make sure that all the projects that i talked about for example, the southeast waterfront can be more transit friendly; right? that really has to be both and i - i mean it is an important question because frankly we're criticized for thinking in terms of only accommodating new resident and new jobs we have to do both and a big part of our thinking. >> thank you commissioner kounalakis. >> thank you so much for coming down it is nice to meet you i'm the newest member this is the first overview and i have so many questions i'll bubbling over but makes limit them to one or two that an impact the port rather than what i'm curious about as a san franciscan
4:20 am
my first one is how the city as you're planning for the growth and accommodating this growth how you deal with tracking because i'm from a small town inland if you have a new project have to have mitigation for impacts to traffic that your project - and it seems like the way that things are happening here there is certainly isn't a mitigation of street widening you know there is no way to do any of that so what does that look like when new projects come on board in terms of what kind of mitigation is required for impacts to traffic. >> that is my first question. >> okay. >> no please and i will say commissioner i'm happy to talk with you offline i know this generates a lot of comments and questions i appreciate that i mean your spot on saying unlike
4:21 am
community that are less built will widening streets is not an option and for 40 years has a transit first policy our transportation dollars will be spent the last priority on vehicular assess the highest priority and other modes of transportation when we deal with development and transportation impacts everyone from impact on transit service and for example, the warriors area they'll be purchasing light rail to serve the corridor we look at we can do things like changing the traffic lights but makes the primary goal to see what we can do to reduce the electrical vehicles or bmt the sarah dennis
4:22 am
phil's mentioned the tmc transportation demand management a groundbreaking ordinance we passed pie the board after two years of work we worked on with mta and the ta that gives did developers a memo of options to reduce their traffic footprint the electrical vehicles and vehicles miles traveled from reducing the amount of parking by the way, providing less parking is the single most important factor but makes it is everything from providing less parking to buying transit pays for employees and two to providing realtime information about transit service a memo of 25 items and the developers have to choose if the memo and have a point total to reduce the bmt. >> so all the parking lots going away and projects built
4:23 am
without parking this is then basically creating a distance for people to drive. >> both a distance and reflecting the reality it car ownership are dropping in about buildings for example, one the larger downtown developers said 1/3rd of tenants are cars we're now seeing projects 5 years ago developers we're saying we can't get financing without a one to one parking and now projects are not proposing projecting parking underground is 60 or $70,000 a space they don't need it. >> as your project by project forward improvements to public transportation that ultimately that is going to be there so that there will be a way for people to get around. >> certainly you can certainly
4:24 am
offer a meeting time limit director reiskin. >> the short answer the challenge is just the cost of the improving the systems are enormous in addition to reducing the vehicles miles traveled developers pay what is called a transportation fee sustainability fee on a per square feet and upped that fee but makes again i mean it is certainly helping mta but makes not going to raise $2 billion for a subway line there is a magnitude of - so mtas i mean the magnitude is on the order of 8 or $9 billion if you recall a half a billion dollars passed in 2014 and another one coming up next year those are important but makes the magnitude of the needs that mta has is enormous
4:25 am
so is a city issue and transportation is not the kind of thing to draw a line in and say that's the end of the picture. >> can i ask we've been talking about hybrids on the waterfront i'm curious as it looks as though the voters with interested in keeping the profile at a lower level unless they have a say my understanding there are more the skyline is changing and the waterfront says it is the height of buildings within certain corridors will be higher than the new salesforce building will that be the tall it building and other buildings of that scale that are coming
4:26 am
down the pike and where if so. >> so the short answer the buildings of that scale are reilly concentrated around the transbay term that was adopted i the commission in 2012 and created enabled the salesforce tower and other like to call them super tall buildings where they should be around the transit center that was the idea you the other area are much less drastically but makes some taller buildings call the central soma program that is the plan that had been adopted and reflect the subway corridor and a plan that goes from second to 6 to two blocks either side of ford from townsend to market that will create higher project
4:27 am
sites particularly the north side of that corridor near market and the south side towards side caltrans central station not a district of theses but makes 5 or 6 or 7 sites from 2 to three to four hundred feet so accommodate particularly to accommodate new office growth because the city's capacity for office and job growth is limited with the build out of downtown and the transit center and office use is only allowed in 10 percent of city very few places to accommodate new office use so this is one of the areas we want to do that. >> thank you no, no that's great, thank you. >> john welcome to the house really glad to have i watch you
4:28 am
guys on sfgovtv. >> commissioners. >> dude your commissioners man like a football team the public wears you guys out it is rough that commission (laughter) but makes john thank you for being able to find a balance between the developers and the community and i know that is hard for you sometimes and san francisco for so along was a working-class say and generations can't afford to live here you're trying to find the balance and not like you're the enemy but makes people saying you're out priced out of city you might want to comment on that and how are you trying to find out where to keep people that lived here when we say affordable housing i know you're working with the mayor's office
4:29 am
and recently, i saw supervisor president london breed on there and supervisor peskin and several the supervisors came and suppressed to the planning commission their concern about the city getting so out of whack and on the scale of balance. >> speak to that you. >> it is the biggest challenge we face so 0 this is part of the creating and city for everyone and the way - we have a lot discussion in the planning department and i'm sure members of the public will go appreciate that my fear is that it is that the current growth rate and wealth creation in the city is kind of threatening the city's soul i take that very seriously and frankly like not on my watch; right? so what do we do the affordable housing question is the most important part but
4:30 am
makes not the only important part frshlths we have developed three years ago put together in the department a community development team 4 people on the team those are positions they didn't have and their position not to look at the zoning or where the city will grow or to develop the projects but makes work drurlg with the community and organizations on the existing neighborhoods particularly the more and more vulnerable neighborhood we've been focusing on the mission district that is ground zero on the bayview and folsom we've been working for lack of a better word the community stabilization this is a challenge that very few cities have taken on can we allow the initialed neighborhood to grow but makes stabilize the population can we do both have
4:31 am
our cake and eat it good frankly some people think i'm smoking something we've not taken this on this in this directive manner i'm proud of something called the mission action 2020 this long term strategy how we can try to stabilizing businesses and stabilizing sros sro is a multi faceted strategy has to do with with land use a lot has to do with with the businesses and a range of activity to stable lids that neighborhood that was done in direct partnering with the neighborhood and it is you know i'm proud i was personally involved in the meetings for two years with the neighborhood organizations to create this strategy i think that is extraordinary important and
4:32 am
groundbreaking it is somewhat experimental every major city on the coast are struggling new york a seattle and washington their challenged by the inflection of people with a lot of money in the city how that is a disrupting factor to the population we are trying to figure out a way to allow the growth and stabilize what we have it is a challenge we need to take on. >> second the forest city with the most incremental in the world language number one, and moscow number two, and new york 3 and san francisco number 3, 4. >> you think that is pretty much the bay area not just san francisco but makes i understand that yeah. >> and last president trump will his budget effect any violation you see for the city
4:33 am
and where you want to go and the commissioners and mayor have any effective on the journey you're on. >> the answer probably but makes doesn't know we haven't gotten the details the one project you've heard about they detailed and perhaps killed funding for the electrification of caltrain that is in the works for a better part of a decade and locally figured out how to fund billion dollars and asking the feds for 200 and $60 million and at the last minute they pulled the plug they've detailed it governor jerry brown went to mayor willie brown to plug for the funding the peninsula corridor is seeing tremendous growth and caltrain a one at capacity and the electrician
4:34 am
indication will increase the capacity by thirty percent by electrifying that system that is important that happen but makes that's the one tangible example i can give you the other simply we don't know but makes reduction in funding. >> colleagues. >> john thank you so much. >> thank you, commissioners and happy to have further conversations. >> item 13 new business. >> i have a couple of impedes e items i've written down to make sure there are accounted for in items we're planning for the future from commissioner vice president brandon about how are we paying inform crane cove park and are we sure to bring that forward with forest city and another from commissioner katz around philanthropic giving them for crane cove park we need to do more to understand the
4:35 am
opportunity for a formalized programming we can pursue or rain water for the crane cove park for all open space and finally from commissioner vice president brandon around the jobs program and the pier 70 and be able that is included in the approval that's what i jotted down. >> thank you, very much. and shout out to sfgovtv thank you for covering this thank you very much. >> okay adjournment. >> madam secretary. >> move to adjourn. all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? we're now adjourned 459. >> wow. >> wow. -

4:37 am
variety of contributions easily enjoyed look up the bay the waterfront is boosting for activities boosting over 25 visitors every year the port of san francisco manages 7 may have million dollars of waterfront from hyde street and fisherman's wharf to the cargo terminals and name shoreline the architecture like pier 70 and the ferry building is here for the embarcadero and a national treasure the port also supports 10 different maritime industries alongside with the recreational attractions making san francisco one of the most viable working waterfronts in the world but did you think that our waterfront faces serious
4:38 am
challenges if earthquake to damage the seawall and the embarcadero roadway rising seawalls will cause flooding at high tides and major repairs to a safe many of the piers the port is at a critically turnl point time to plan for the future of san francisco's waterfront this year the port is updating it's marts plan the plan working group to invite a wide variety of poichdz from the city and bayview and other advisory teams to share their expertise if intense and maritime operations the waterfront land use plan has guided the use and development of the lanes for the last 20 years major physical changes
4:39 am
take place along the waterfront and now is the time to update the waterfront plan to continue improvements that will keep our waterfront vibrate, public and resilient the biggest challenges facing the waterfront are out the site an aging seawall along the embarcadero roadway and seawalls that will rise by 21 hundred to provide and productivity of tides seawall is built over weak soils and mud the next earthquake will cause it to settle several feet without the urgent repairs that will damage the promenade and other things we've been fortunate over the last hundred years less than one foot of seawall over the next hundred years scientists say we'll have 6 feet of seawall
4:40 am
rise imagine the pier 30/32 will be floated, the embarcadero will be flooded our transportation system is fog to be heavy impacts unfortunately, the port didn't have the financial resources to repair all the deteriorating piers let alone the adaptations for sea level rise. >> it is clear that the port can't pay for the seawall reinforcement or deal with the sea level rise on its own needs to raise money to take care of the properties at take care of the maintenance on the properties no way absent anti funding the issues of sea level rise or the schematic conditions of seawall can be development. >> as studies talk about the seawall challenges the working group is look at the issues please come share our ideas
4:41 am
about recreation, pier activities, shoreline habitat, historic preservation and transportation issues and viral protection. >> we know this planning process will not have one question and one answer we need the diversity of the opinions how people feel about san francisco waterfront and want to hear all the opinions. >> the challenges call for big decisions now is the time to explore now and creative ideas to protect and preserve san francisco waterfront. >> now is the time to get involved to help to shape the future of our waterfront. >> we need the debate please come forward and engage in the process. >> this is your waterfront and this is your opportunity to get involved be part of solution help san francisco create the waterfront we want for the
