11:33 am
colleagues today before us is 3 contracts under the millions act the state legislation that initiate advised improvements to in maintaining historic properties in historic districts two years ago as you recall i introduced legislation this board passed unanimously to reform our local process around the miles act i worked with the san francisco historic heritage and other advocates in drafting that long overdue legislation miles act for people to maintain their properties in a historic way the intent of this legislation that we passed a few years ago was to increase access to the miles act that helps homeowners
11:34 am
to make costly improvements to roars structures we prioritized the historic preservation around the architecture of the thought city we want our historic building to be maintained as costing hass as that would be the miles act provides for property tax credits for owners to restrict a 10 year maintenance for a deliciously in terms of what the owner has to do to the building the miles act applies to property that are contributing to a local state or historic building or landmarked we've put a lot of maintenance and want them to be done the miles act provides an incentive to maintain them in an appropriate
11:35 am
way in 2012 other communities for example, la had a robust miles program and oakland across the bay a smaller city than san francisco had a robust plan significantly bigger than san francisco over time there were few miles a acts in san francisco other than a larger properties almost no small homeowners that were participating because the process here was difficult and long and expensive and unpredictable legislation we adopted a few years ago has significantly improved that and made a streamlined and more predictability thanks to the planning department and the assessors office we've seen a bunch of miles act glutton and
11:36 am
last year, it was approved a series of small homes for miles act contracts 3 miles act contracts before his today are from the newest historic district in san francisco one that i authored and this board elective last day last year the historic district immediately north of delores park the all of a sudden dead end street pierce carmelita it's a behalf historic district and the earth is remarkable and those 3 contract were all recommended for approval by the historic preservation commission and in addition the 3 contracts have the support of the san francisco architecture heritage and we've described a letter
11:37 am
from the executive director of the heritage strongly supporting those krikts contracts so colleagues, i ask firing support and any questions about the process for the miles act the planning department is here to answer our questions. >> supervisor avalos. >> thank you president chiu so clooepgz colleagues which of those in committee last week, i was not ready to support it i'm kind of on the fence i actually feel the miles act works pest when it's looking at preserving the property in blighted areas of the city and this part of san francisco is definitely not an area that is blighted perhaps in 25 to thirty years ago it could have been but 40 years ago it was in that condition but right now not those property are
11:38 am
already in pretty good condition one of the projects where the building is looking for the miles act designation as accomplished much of the work that is done in terms of the renovation i know it covers maintenance a separate issue but i actually feel that the miles act is really geared towards looking at parts of neighborhoods that are more blighted where the tax break can actually help people who have less means to do do renovations on their homes to do them in this case, i building this landmark district is in pretty good condition and the buildings there are worth $1.7 million we the people are actually owning those buildings can actually do the renovation without the tax
11:39 am
break i'll rather we didn't unable to to happen i'll be voting against the miles act on those 3 items. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you, mr. president i appreciate supervisor avalos remarks but i disagree first of all, it's an initial matter colleagues this particular area wasn't 25 or 20 years ago, it was a very challenged neighborhood until recently it was a point challenge due to the incredible work of the residents of that area this has been a drastically improved area the residents of that area deserve a lot of credit we shouldn't reward them but no longer going
11:40 am
to give me miles act contracts i want to note that the miles act is not just for obligated properties but to give homeowners an incentive you can do work on historic building in a lot of different was and range of costs in terms of the care and you can go above and beyond to honor the district of those property or change of venues choose no to go above and beyond but entering into a contract you've gone beyond to honor the district of the property if we're going to get into a situation in a historic place not considered to be blighted whatever intense you use we're not going to have miles act
11:41 am
contracts in san francisco i can assure you that will be a long time before we see a historic district formed in san francisco when we went to the formation there was a lot of concern in the neighborhood you're putting extra obligations without benefit and the miles act is that benefit it's not a full benefit he in terms of counter balancing all the obligations but something i think it will send a powerful message that we start rejecting those contracts from people not to support of the creation of the historic district i hope we'll support those. >> at this time madam clerk. >> supervisor mar supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee supervisor avalos no supervisor breed supervisor campos
11:42 am

11:54 am
the city administered to convene a working group to work together a gadget data specifically to look at the situation is of architects versus engineers and at the end of that time period the zoning administrator low provide an analysis and make recommendations open whether there should be additional categories for example, to cart out architect and set that aside as a specific category in indicating committee no one said they're interested but if you're interested i'm sure that our zoning administrator naomi kelly will be taking recommendations that come out a month from now to potentially turn that into chapter 14. >> i'll foul. >> thank you, colleagues take this item same house, same call?

11:56 am
utilities power enterprise with the first right of refusal to provide clean hetch hetchy power to new private and public developments in san francisco i'm pleased the sierra club and the league of conservation voters have enforced the legislation i want to thank supervisor breed for co-chairing the legislation and supervisor kim so far adding her name and supervisor yee has stone shown an interest it provides the puc with the authority to be the power provider when it makes economic and environmental sense to do so for nearly a century or century the public utilities commission has provided clean power such as the muni and san francisco international airport ate the hospital and police and fire stations our jails and city
11:57 am
hall etc. the power that the puc provides is clean and one hundred percent green house gases free in a place where global warming is looming so we need to move towards a clean energy future it's not enough to talk about it we have to do it we can do it here with this legislation there are many benefits to electrical service including local control and lower rates and promotion of renewable and clean energy and greater transparency and accountability expanding the point of interest enterprises retail customer base instead of selling it we'll provide much needed revenue for the puc's
11:58 am
system and our street light system that's a huge deferred infrastructure needs and the retail power is sold at three to four times as wholesale puc estimates 10 meg wauts was the it residence the net revenue so if the puc were able to increase the retail sales of electricity by one hundred megawatts that will generate $40 million in new revenue that could be reinvested in the system including our street light system puc's power enterprise facilities currently have massive deferred maintenance in the hundreds of dollars of thousand of maintenance in hetch hetchy and locally in our street light system we've seen the result off our deteriorated street light system where is the puc didn't have the revenues to modernize the system if we want
11:59 am
to keep this amazing unique asset and clean energy as well as our street light system the puc needs morality customers currently the puc sells a huge amount of electricity into the wholesale market anothers dromoreduced watts rates we should be selling that this provides the puc with the first right of refusal to be the power provider by selling hetch hetchy ohio power to public and private promotions to the city entitlement it provide puc with the authority to first conduct the study and where it deems it arena or large housing project or a large project etc. so by doing this we'll stimulate the generation of more clean
12:00 pm
energy because the incurring energy that is currently purchasing the hydro electrical power will have to find other sources to that meet their stating portfolio and move san francisco towards our stated goal for the board of supervisors on having a purely renewalable system by 2030 >> colleagues i've received a number of communications and meetings with groups and the chamber of commerce that are concerned about the ability to choose a power provider and, of course, this board strongly supports this unanimously the power sf program a choice and competition are good things i
