process. and agree that sacrifices need to be made to accommodate all users of polk street. but there has to be balance. and everybody's needs should be taken into account not just one aggressive voice for the group, there are many stake holders and i hope that the small business community can have a better voice and more say in the process, because they are willing to make sacrifices and help bring balance to the process. thank you. >> thank you. >> any other members of the public? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. >> chairman? >> thank you. mr. president, and thank you, for the very thoughtful conversation and suggestions and the work in the written presentations is excellent. and very, very helpful, i think to all of us, certainly to me. i would like to comment on
something that a couple of people have said and i totally agree with the one size does not fit all. i have used my role as a commissioner here to look at and look out for the entire city in terms of transportation, that is the charge. and the same time being mindful of neighborhoods and groups and individuals, and circumstances that are around the city, i can assure you that it is an extremely difficult job and for us it is going to be getting much more difficult in the coming year because the transit effectiveness project will be coming out and that does involve some or one of the speakers mentioned removing some bus stops and changes. and so there is going to be a lot of opposition to it and it is going to be tough, but ours again and we have it look out for the whole city and the case is made well for the involvement of the small business community and the work of mt a and i would like to make a suggestion that your commission, came up with 12 different suggestions and we have several as well. and i think that it would be
very unwhiledy to try to deal with tonight and i would suggest that we consider asking our staffs to work together on some of the most sale ent recommendations and to come back and we could meet again in six months or three months or whatever and talk about the specific things that will show essentially how the mta reaches out to and involves the small business community early on in the process. and i would hope that something like that would you know that recommendations could come to codify some of those things and at what point do we check with the businesses? you know? and the community. any way i would like to offer that suggestion it is not detailed of course, but it would be a way of moving forward. >> i agree with that. and maybe, check in, you know, we could dedicate a part of our commission meetings on the checking in, on what both staffs are talking about. and we both have been working on this, and your staff has been great, our staff, and i
mean that there is communication now where i think a while ago there was no communication and now we are finally talking. what we we asked the director to respond to that? any thoughts on that? >> that i think is a good suggestion for us, too. we both have a listing of recommendation and directions and a lot of them are aligned and working out the finer details to are able to bring back to both body and so our office would be amenable to that. >> and what do you think about that? >> my idea? >> i think that this the suggestion is a good one, and i think that there is a lot of common ground and i think that the common bond was the phrase used and i think that there is
a lot to work with there. but, i think that for the benefit of the public, and the small business community, i think that the accountable for this process would be well served by reporting back whether as a regular part of the respectful board and commission meetings on whether we are with these number of these, and our already in progress. and but i think that the idea to come back, subsequently, and bring you updates on where we are is a great idea. >> members of the commission? >> i think that this is a good idea, but do i want to urge if we are going in this direction that there are many issues that are extremely pressing right now to small business corridors that are actively effecting businesses. and you know, i am just a little worried that this is not going to be done in a timely manner, because i certainly
know and i live and work in north beach, and that there are major issues right now, that are of great concern up to the residents and the merchants that we are aligned on. and time is of the essence anybody else? >> go ahead. >> thank you, i just wanted to thank everybody who came here and gave public comment today, i know that you probably all had much better things to do with your afternoon and i appreciate the small business commission giving their time to us as well and i think that this was incredibly helpful. and to me, the chairman pointed out and director pointed out. we really are united in common ground and we all recognize that the small businesses make this city an amazing place to live. and we might have different opinions about what is going to guarantee the health and viability of the small businesses but i think that we are at a really good starting
point where we can start to talk to each other now and i just have to speak up for family and transit. in my three years on the board, nothing upsets me more than to hear someone saying that you can't have a family in this city unless you have a car because i know that is not traou. for people who can afford cars, fabulous, if they can afford to have the children and drive around, fabulous, that is wonderful, but i ride muni a lot and i see so many families taking transit and so it is so important for all of us to remember that by improving walkable and bikable and also, continuing to accommodate the private automobiles as we have in the history of the city that we are helping families, thank you all so much for coming and i appreciate hearing from the small business leaders in particular, thank you >> members of the board? >> director lee? >> yeah, i want to just comment on the commissioner dooley's
comment that items that we need to address and we need to look at them in conjunction with the small business and otherwise the things will fall through the cracks and say let's get together six months from now and we still have the same problems facing us and i would like to make a recommendation that in the once every two months, we meet with, representatives from the small business commission, that address certain things that are popping up. >> yes. we do. >> and i think that is a great idea. >> and the one. >> and the policy in the government in the out reach. >> thank you. >> and commissioner dooley does have a great point, and there are a couple of projects coming up right now that are effecting like especially with the central subway coming into north beach and polk street and upper market and there are somewhere our office is hearing a lot from the merchants and i think that we could just start some dialogue on those projects right now. and but, i do want to give a shout out to ed and your staff.
your out reach has been phenomenal and we have heard, every since you became head of mta, now before we never heard anything and now we are hearing from you guys and i cannot tell you how much it has been appreciated. and i want to give a shout out to steve cornel because he brought this up to our commission, and what about a year ago? and that we need to start talking and it really opened my eyes and i just wanted to tell you how much i appreciated that. and it did open my eyes, because the concerns that he was having in his area. and i was hearing, in the castro and in the valley and so, i really want to appreciate you putting this the forefront, steve i want to give you a shout out for that. >> members of the board? so what i want to do is talk to the staff about the timing and i have commissioner dooley's contact information and once we can finalize something i will reach for you.
okay. >> and members, who want to speak to us on something that is not on the calendar? >> yes tl, is members of the public to address the board and commission on matters that are within the jurisdiction of the two representative agencies but not on today's calendar. we don't have any speaker cards for anyone under that section. >> anyone care to speak to the board on anything else? >> any matters that have not been discussed today whether it is with the small business commission or with the mta? >> seeing none, i think that probably time to... >> party up on the polk street. >> we have one member of the public that would like to make a comment >> there are any other parties going around that we can go to tonight? >> businesses? >> how are you doing? >> this is first for me, i was not prepared, but, my name is abraham, and i own a part owner of a business, and on fillmore and eddie and i have, and we do have a concern with a bus stop that was put right in front of
our business. and that has affected us, very much as far as business is concerned and we tried to contact the mta as far as having something done with the bus stop but we to no avail. however, we talked to the people who, the contractors that actually put the bus stop there. and they decided that they were going to move it further up and they painted everything, and then they stopped working on it. so, it is, an issue that we are having with our business. and we have been trying to get a hold of somebody at the mta to discuss this issue, but to no avail. >> perhaps, mr. reiskin can talk to the director a bit after for a second >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you *, next speaker? >> scott howge,, i just want to
bring up the small business community, the small business commission, has supported the task force recommendations that came out regarding the plakards that is a good example that we can work together and show some opportunities for collaboration. >> any other members of the public that would like to make a comment on something that is not on today's agenda. >> i don't see anything, mr. president. >> it looks to me like it is time to adjourn. >> i would like to thank both of the staffs and i would like to thank christian murdock and director dick-endrizzi and for your guidance on this and director reiskin. >> and do we have a motion to adjourn? >> all in favor? >> aye. >> okay, great.

discussion and action, resolution number 58 2013. madam director. >> congratulations, madam chair, madam vice-chair, commissioners, and welcome to the members of the public. thank you for joining us. commissioners, this is a simple limited term extension for an existing bayview contractor, mccoy security, as provided for under the hunters point shipyard phase 1dda, the developer can provide these services. it already provides property management services for the balance of the shipyard, and this limited term extension will allow the developer to go through your purchasing policy and procurement get back contractor on board. so, with that i'd like to ask [speaker not understood] the hunters point shipyard project manager to walk you through the proposed detail of this proposed project.
>> thank you, executive director, greetings. once again, president of the commission, ms. christine johnson, congratulatetions. [speaker not understood], 70,000 to the budget for services during this period. to do that i'll briefly summarize whatth project is, give you some background on the agreements requiring security services agreement [speaker not understood] lastly give you an overview of community services solicitation upped our undertaking. before that i want to introduce mccoy services ms. [speaker not understood] coleman. please stabbed. and ms. karen bay from lennar corporation. as you know, the hunters point shipyard project is one of three major projects, major approved projects
[speaker not understood] the office of community investment and infrastructure is undertaking. it spans both the shipyard proper and the [speaker not understood] bayview for a total of 7 88 acres along the southeastern water froth of san francisco. the shipyard program includes over 12,000 homes, 32% of which will be affordable, a rebill of alice griffith public housing development. 3,000 square feet of research space, 350 acres of new and improved parks and all this will be developed over two phases by the lennar corporation under a first phase it what approved in 2003 under a disposition and development agreement. and second dda in 2010. this will produce thousands and thousands of jobs and 12,000 permanent jobs over the course of the project along with significant infrastructure both community facilities and transit and other types of infrastructure. and as you know, the [speaker not understood] development broke ground this year in july.
one of the principal agreements and the first obligations underpinning the shipyard project is the conveyance agreement between the former redevelopment agency, now the office of community investment and infrastructure, and the navy. the conveyance agreement provides a regulatory framework and process for ocii to receive and manage additional shipyard parcels from the navy in phases over time. one of the first transfer responsibilities that came in 2000 in anticipation of a future parcel a transfer was security and base access management. and furtherance of that, the former redevelopment agency entered into a security cooperative agreement with the navy in 2005 which is essentially a contract to provide security services of the shipyard which the navy provides the majority of funding for. prior to the security [speaker not understood] agreement being entered into but in anticipation of future community property transfer, the agency conducted a solicitation in
2000 and selected mccoy's patrol services to provide security services at the shipyard. services scope includes front gate access control 24 hours a day 7 days a week, along with ship wide hourly roving patrol on the overnight shift. reporting duties associated with the contract including the reporting of any disturbances to the authorities and ocii and the developer and the preparation of daily, monthly, and vehicle reports and logs. the contract that we are extending today expires december 31st, 2013 and it is at the end of a five-year contract with an annual budget of just over $385,000. the 2003 phase 1dda required lennar to provide property management services at the shipyard through an interim lease which was executed in 2004. that interim lease required lennar to provide all the property management for ocii occupied areas of the shipyard
which today, as you know, is only parcel a and a portion of parcel b which is occupied by the artist. however, the former redevelopment agency elected the contract for security services directly in 2000 and reserved the right to acquire lennar to provide security services if requested in the future by the agency ~. due to the constraints on ocii's staffing as a result of dissolution process, lennar is best positioned to provide security services at the shipyard, especially since they are already providing all the other property management services. lennar agreed to do this. shipyard advisory committee recommended we move forward with this. unfortunately due to the timing of the extension term and lennar's rfp schedule, the additional time is needed on the contract. the time and budget extensions are anticipated to carry us through the rfp period and be sufficient until there is a new contract. rfp is planned for release december 209tion, 2013 with prep sam due
january 23rd, 2014. lennar will be conducting an extension i have rfp outreach process to ensure san francisco bay firms are apprised of the [speaker not understood] and they get an opportunity to submit proposals. both myself and folks from lennar and mccoy are here to answer any questions. that conclude the presentation. thank you. >> thank you very much, mr. kasloski. is there any public comment on this item? >> no speaker cards, madam chair. >> thank you very much. so, i think the reason for this is pretty clear. you know, the agency -- the lennar, rather, manages most of the other property management roles on the shipyard currently and in my mind, from staff's information sort of makes sense that we would wrap this underneath their management as well so they can sort of have a bird's eye view of everything at the shipyard, not have this sort of one piece sort of
segmented out for the agency to have to manage. so, those are my thoughts on it. are there any other questions about the contract extension? or the property management and the shipyard? >> i think they are doing a very good job. i know -- [speaker not understood] for a minute? i know him when he was a little boy. [laughter] >> and, you know, he's very, very nice. i don't know the other people, but i know him. so, i think they are doing a good job. >> and thank you very much for being here today. i don't know if you want to say a few words. yeah, but i'm hoping that you guys are ready for the contract or for the rfp that lamar will put out and you're having no issues there with being prepared to potentially, you know, apply for that. so, commissioner ellington, did you have -- >> if they wanted to say a few words on behalf of the organization.
>> no. >> okay. so, if we've got questions about what we're actually -- the resolution we're looking at today, i'd like to entertain a motion and a second. >> i move. >> is there a second? what, what? yeah, i asked for the comment already. i know you're watching me like a hawk. i'm trying to be on my game. there were no cards. >> i second it. >> thank you very much. madam secretary, please call the role. >> commission members please annoyance your vote when i call your name. commissioner ellington? >> aye. >> commissioner montahar abseptember. commissioner sipping? >> yes. >> vice-chair rosales? >> yes. >> madam chair johnson? >> aye. >> madam chair the vote is four ayes and one absent. >> thank you very much. please call the next item. >> the next order of business is item 6, public comment on non-agenda items. >> do we have any public comment?
>> no. >> okay, next item. >> the next order of business is item 7, report of the chair. >> thank you very much. no specific predetermined report today, although i will say our next meeting is going to be in the southeast. our meeting will be in hunters point in the southeast community facility tart starting at 4 o'clock on december 7th. excuse me? >> january 7th. >> january 7th. what did i say? sorry, january 7th. and i'm really excited for us to be getting back out into the community again with our meetings. next item. >> the next order of business is item 8, report of the executive director, madam director. >> thank you, madam secretary. commissioners and members of the public, i have three short updates for you. the first, thank you to all the members of the public and the hard work of the staff and in particular the leadership and direction from this commission. we just had a groundbreaking at transbay block 6 about approximately
400 market rate units golub, chicago director he, this is their first investment in san francisco and i believe they've done it right upped your review and direction. it combines 70 units of affordable housing on block 6. [speaker not understood] truly sustainable mixed say stainable. [speaker not understood], mercy housing will be developing another 77 units of housing. so, really thank you for your efforts and the efforts of the community to make that happen. i think that's really emblematic of the work do you here and the work we do with the hard working staff. so, that's one. two, just to draw your attention, there is an informational memorandum in your packet about -- as required under state law. and just good prudence. we do have an independent auditor's report that reviews our year-end financials. no material weaknesses were found. we certainly are managing our funds appropriately and we can also
provide you additional details in the new year in 2014 through the budget process, which we will be kicking off rather soon in february, actually, in term of reports of our balances, how we've been doing over the course of the last year so we can look forward to that in the new year. and then lastly, i'm really pleased as we're wrapping up all the significant accomplishments. i think it's almost a year to the date or so that this commission has been installed and we're moving at quite a fast clip here. and i am pleased to announce another advancement. in the shipyard, the developer there, lennar, has informed us that they are proceeding with construction. they've secured outside lender financing for block 53 and 54 which you provided a design review approval, the vertical dba approval for those
