law, j.d. candidate, class of 2016. so, and was introduced to the office via [speaker not understood] who did the pos presentation to you. and then stephanie did do, worked on further legacy the presentation for you the initial sorting of just going through the s.f. data, database and taking a look at the different categories and dog the initial sorting. and then we'll be working on some additional projects, so. >> hi, commissioners. my name is stephanie. i am currently a usf law student. i did get my undergrad in business, so, i want to combine those. that's why after talking to wyatt, i really wanted to work in the office of small business just because it really interested me and i enjoy my study. >> she said, i hope to create more definitions for the additional terms that the taxing treasurer's office added
to their list ~ just to kind of help get a definition of maybe why they were added and what type of business [speaker not understood] that you would check that box instead of another box. and then i also helped compile the list, preliminary list of potential business he for the legacy rebate program. i basically just went on to the data s.f. and put in specific terms looking 30 years ago or older and then also certain class codes [speaker not understood] felt would be best that fall under the definitions of it and then just compile it had into an excel spreadsheet. you only have one class code. i did a couple more and i hope to continue to work with that project because i really think it's a great project and would like to provide any help that i can. >> thank you. >> so, thank you, stephanie,
and monique. so, you're welcome to stay or you're welcome to go back downstairs if you like. all right. also, so, to move on, so, the a-d-a subsidized assessment program we are now going to expand it city-wide. and it will be available as long as there are funds annually because of the dollar registration that's added to the annual business registration. we have approximately $50,000 to work with. so, that could add 40, around 40 kass p, subsidized casp inspections. it was opened up to targeted certain neighborhood programs. now with this fee we're going to be targeting -- opening it up city-wide. small business saturdays is coming up november -- i'm very embarrassed, but the last saturday of the month.
we are very pleased that american express has decided to, again, include san francisco in expanding its sort of activities. >> the 29th. >> the 29th. yes, thank you. so, they are planning a main street make over which is just helping with kind of decorations and with hayes valley, and then small business saturday night in the upper fillmore, helping them put together some promotional thing that they can do for late night shopping for that -- for that neighborhood. so, and then, of course, we're doing the banners again this year along with the invest in neighborhoods program. formula retail, so, today in land use and economic committee starting at 1:30, the two formula retail item are being heard.
and, so, hopefully find out after this meeting is over in terms of what was the final outcome. the point of sale registration, so, monique is continuing to work to help sort of develop some additional data and information for both our office, supervisor farrell's office and supervisor wiener's office, but our next steps are also to be meeting with dph. they are going to put together an assessment of the businesses he that they've gone into. they've done the testing ~. and they even have -- their registers, their pos system is office to see if we can see any sort of -- from that data, if we can make any sort of determination, you know, in terms of size of business, industry business, number of pos system in the business, that type of thing. so, i don't anticipate that this is going to be a
fast-moving legislative change because i do think that we want to be measured about it, but we will be -- we're continuing to work on it. so, i'll just keep you apprised as each stage, any sort of new developments take place along the way. next, for your next meeting on november 10th, you will be hearing the 14 b local business enterprise program legislation. initially it was scheduled at the october 6 meeting, but was asked to be continued. and, so, supervisor chiu's office and the city administrator's office has commits today november 10th. and you will also be hearing both pieces of legislation. supervisor mar's and supervisor chiu is dealing with formula retail employees. so, i just wanted to make sure you're aware of that.
last, last week supervisor breed had at the land use and economic committee establishing divisadero neighborhood commercial corridor and the fillmore street commercial corridor. the commission heard those back in 2012, i think, or late '12, early 2013. the one change that was made to those two pieces he of legislation, initially they had a ban for formula retail, but the ban was removed from the legislation when it was heard again and they'll just follow the planning commission's formula retail criteria. so, those two item passed out of land use and will be before the full board tomorrow for its first reading. i want to let you know he that our new website is live ~. so, we have developed it so
that once the portal is live, all the subtantive material that was part of the 10 steps to getting your business open, [speaker not understood] financial business will be easily able to be extracted without having to be able to be extracted because all that information is now housed in the portal. ~ substantive so, there is a seamless transition once the portal goes live, which we're -- i'm hoping will be in the next couple weeks. it's pretty well ready to go. and then i've provided you with some updates on the staffing and they hope that we are getting to interviews in november. and then working to schedule the presentations from the departments that you've requested with the health care security ordinance, the health department, and the planning department. so, those are the key elements to communicate with you from my director's report today, commissioners. if you have any questions. >> thank you.
