12:32 am
mercy high school in that location the station will be at the level of the stones town parking lot and i actually i've seen it before they used to have a legal crossing and it was dangerous so they now have a fence i've seen the students run across and it makes me cringe so this is a natural desire line. >> you caution you you're going tunnels i mean maybe this is a part of town you'll not have issues with graffiti and others things that took place there. >> i think the personal security idea is one you have to do the right maintenance and design and planning for there are examples of how to do that i think would one of the interesting opportunity we've built strong relationships with
12:33 am
the high school and there are stations i believe the asian pacific islander street station there's tuntsdz to build that into the adjacent landowners. >> and additional considerations to the north with a couple of the lines coming in i think you should include continue to include or give thought it that there was short-sighted thinking on the subway but ending it now, was a mistake. >> so you're saying all the way through west portal. >> i think the subway ends in chinatown why not all the way to the bay and now people are saying oh, it shove gone all the way to the bay but one of the

answers that came back from staff the original study only included going harassing as far as chinatown. >> i want to say we're defining our project in such a way to not preclude a subway and the light rails to the city. at the same time the sfmta is beginning to develop a rail strategy and that should be the place of the big term vision we can point to that how supporting that will not mess up the larger vision >> commissioner moore. >> we have a challenge in view of the project not including the part to the daily city station and the dash line or the desire line as commissioner sugaya was indicating carry a theoretical
12:35 am
thought forwards i'm interested to see you tackle the interface between caltrain and the city your coming up with a not particularly attractive freeway corridor like 0 lombardy street i'm interested for you to success we've been struggling with that and the bay regional struggled with that and lots of people will come and learn from you. >> we'll try hard. >> can i ask a question about environmental review the state lines service will that impact the environmental review you said it will take 3 years i'm interested. >> so the state guidelines were changed or there was a state law that told staff at the office of planning and research to come up with a new standard there's a
12:36 am
whole process it hadn't happened i think it will happen but the idea is streamlined when your digging tunnels in a complicated corridor there's other substantial time the 3 years are the best guess and the timeline we need to get to one of the purposes is to scope out environmental review in a larger scale. >> thanks. councilmember sharp >> i'm glad the extension to bart city was brought it's critical to include that as part of the study and perhaps analyzed it environmentally will take longer but if you do want to take bart to the airport from someone in the vicinity it's a
12:37 am
long trip on the m to go down to balboa park and drag a lot of stuff what you and ride a long ways out of your way to discourages yoursship and on the st. francis circular the original plan when it was built has part of bart it included a subway and the mrnlts and acknowledge observed. >> i've learned apparently were planning it all the way to a sf sate. >> that's too bad it would have been okay. not detracted from the business on west portal that was one the the reasons people would pat news the establishment

12:54 am
western selma it's helpful to show you a couple of pictures what we've done so that first one is the corner of 9th and harrison and it really is a project that was designed to hit the goal it was set forth early someone said if we could take western sill may we ma and put it into a blender to see all the things on your project so what you see is actually 7 distinct buildings retail stand alone and passenger door space and a public park i should make clear is not part of the funding for the in kind so of the $7 million we're generating in terms of
12:55 am
fees the one million dollars is focused on the wrinkle and not on the public park on the corner of 8th and wrinkle. this is 8th and harrison this is a shot looking on 8 street the street to the right would be wrinkle and this is the park as well. and here's one more shot of the park. and i was asked inform provide a little bit of context it's actually a misnomer to say we're the project we're the project chaperone in the first phase it was the western task force that was driving the decision making around whether or not wrinkle should be a priority project and
12:56 am
the answer came back yes and the second phase was ss fta and liz taking ownership over the design of the street sxheefkz and this is he relating to taking the project through the various agencies and folks to feel comfortable. so our job comes next we are the execution arm the project is we've pulled the permit and completed the first and second agenda and we start the earthwork on hopefully tuesday, we're making progress this is for the city to leverage something not that the developer put together earlier but it's a
12:57 am
good design it needs nor work and community outreach to get people comfortable with the aspects of it but in terms of an integration between what we're doing and the community wants to see this is a really grew opportunity i encourage you to support it >> okay. thank you. let's open this up for public comment liz bison >> liz dee bison from the transportation authority and it's exciting to be here on another item it's a different scale by doing the joint use and transportation i want to talk about the work the transportation authority did the metropolitan transportation created a grant program to
12:58 am
support community based transportations blends in the regions concerned areas of concentrations of non-white areas so we got the grant and the context of western selma as we were beginning this it seemed likely to combine with the other agencies to develop and evaluate the system we did it study sunny mentioned was completed about a year ago and it's exciting to see that moved. >> thank you is there any further public comment. >> good afternoon, commissioners. jim medicare could from south of market this is one of the feel
12:59 am
good planning stories we can all celebrate this is we needed to mitigate the impact of this huge project in western selma. the to the developers credit they're already providing privately owned publicly accessible parks it fulfills our priority goal to create a new on and on classify district alongside the folsom corridor it lifts up one truly dismal neighborhood to help it become a world-class neighborhood and the agencies will approve of that is the blender we talked about the doxen phase you take all the positive aspects of the surrounding community and put it
