12:53 pm
hadn't thought of that i'm glad to see interest is going to be car share space as part of the parking with 25 percent parking ratio it is really good if people have car share on site to be able to use for a car although we're working on new transit groups for the neighborhood with mta all in all we like it and look forward to having is it built thank you. >> thank you. >> are there any other speakers that would like to come up? >> okay public comment is closed. on this item commissioners do have questions or comments. >> i do commissioner bustos. >> i'm not sure you may have gotten the breakdown what's the breakdown of the bedrooms in
12:54 pm
those units? >> there are 1, 2, 3 bedroom units at the development. >> do we know sorts of one bedrooms how many or 3 bedrooms. >> i don't off the top of my head okay. it is about 1/3rd 1/3rd, 1/3rd. >> so when we look at the car share process for that with the space what's the process how do the attendance how are they able to assess that car share program. >> i'm going to ask the clearing not a one for one parking ratio there's a lottery different methods but i'll call the developers up. >> you know how we are on parking. >> i'm a.d. deny with t n d c
12:55 pm
your specifically care about how we're working the car share. >> in my opinion there's not enough parking i want to know if you have a family that is in one the 3 bedroom units how they get to access the car share. >> there are a couple of car share programs in the city we reached out to them in the initial rvp with inform dedicated spaces they'll state with on space there's a lot in mission bay currently we're allocating two spaces go to two spaces that goes to one to support two and bum up to two at this point but we'll- it will serve the whole neighborhood open to everybody in the building as well as the entire neighborhood and access to the other car share spaces in the neighborhood. >> i'll have a problem with
12:56 pm
that you know, like i said, we're already not enough parking spots if you w have two dedicated parking spots that takes away from the opportunity for the tenants this spot is for decreases the chance arrest we can look at that our first task was to work with the established groups and work elsewhere in the city to see if they have another models we can eye. >> if you have families or parents or kids it is you know they need a way they need a parking spot a way to get around are the parking spots designated for the larger units versus the single or one bedroom. >> assuming the larger like two
12:57 pm
or three bedrooms have families we're going trying to support. >> will they have first dibs on those spots. >> so how we've operated in the past we have a lottery for the spaces so we don't necessarily reserve them for you the larger families but not necessarily can't look at that. >> i would suggest if a person in a one bedroom a single person or couple it is a lot easy to ride a bike so; right? hundred and 39 so it is easy for them to get on a bicycle but for families sometimes multi generations folks living in the united so grandparents and grandkids it's harder to get a bike to go grocery shopping i'll hope we look at that to make sure those in the larger units
12:58 pm
that most likely will house families they get first dibs on some of those spaces for the cars. >> uh-huh. >> i'm not sure how can we do that i mean that is something to talk about online or offline and you know having access to car shares similar to the what rec and park the they instituted a process that made people go online for a permit to use the parks and my concern if the person if it is a single parents not $27 to spare; right? i'm not sure how much the car share program works and how much we're charging people we're assuming that is access to get it; right? you know how to use it online
12:59 pm
when we look at things like this we need to look at how it works for an individual or family to be able to participate and take advantage of some of the things so i'm not sure how do we follow-up on this stuff but maybe you know ms. sims or someone what report out basically, i'm thinking about the spaces for the car share for larger unites for families because it makes sense they're probably going to need it the most and how do people within the unit use the car share spaces i'm not interested if you go out but people that live in that particular development having the access to the spaces so if we could report back on this i'd appreciate that. >> thank you.
1:00 pm
>> commissioner singh. >> june 2016 with the gap financing telling me what how much is the gap and how much financing we're looking at. >> that's what we'll the team will be working on for the next several months to finalize the financial plan finalize any additional resources that be are coming in to the development and finalize the ticketing then we'll know what the gap is. >> is it going to be ground or alone. >> oh, alone uh-huh. >> thank you. >> i have a couple of questions
1:01 pm
on the affordable housing units i know we don't have a neighborhood preference program yet but is it appropriate to ask the executive director to give us some background on what might be you know an opportunity for the commission to consider a neighborhood preference for affordable housing? sure commissioners within the context of the existing preferences that exist within the mission bay plan and the agreement as many of you may know the preferences that exist for affordable unit certificate of preference is at the top and to the extent that developments have not executed ground leases the ellis act because you're a legal separate entity from the city should you choose to adapted a neighborhood preference the board will report to planning the planning is
1:02 pm
doing an analysis and there will be a report in the fall you could do you want certainly preferences related to neighborhood preferences but there's a waterfall to create the harm new although this body oversees 21 thousand units a third are affordable with the master unit we need to harmonize the existing agreements our existing preferences which may be different from the city it is implementing we need the time to analyze it and like to report book to you to the extent that analysis is done by the time the permanent loan and the ground lewis lease comes back to you it could be in the waterfall preference. >> with respect to the ellis act
1:03 pm
evictions remedy preference my understanding of the data when the budget analyst recorded to the board of supervisors in the south of market area there was significant displacement due to ellis act evictions in the mission is another area i guess i'd like to have you might not have it today but information on you know how many folks are taking advantage, if you will, of that program so yes, sir. r yes. there's a preference but the impacts would be because we're talking about mission bay and then transbay i think that would be important. >> we can follow-up with data and jeff white occ project manager has additional fvndz. >> good afternoon jeff what did they housing manager i checked
1:04 pm
hundred and 36 ellis act housing certificates issued and hundred and 36, 9 from folks in describe codes some from bruno heights. >> do we have any tloins why interest are so few i'm pretty much there were thousands and thousands of victims. >> those are the folks that went through the process getting the certificates so, yeah i don't have the why the answer to the why. >> yeah. >> the malice that will give us a report. >> that's correct. >> all right. maybe we can do a followup
1:05 pm
okay my last question i know it's early about the retail concepts but interested in finding what the retail concepts we might be looked at or the process will unfold whether groceries amendments to the groceries grocery stores anywhere here. >> i know the developer has been working with mission bay specification brokers and an entity that works with the nonprofit developers but foyer specification i'd like to call a.d. deny doyle up here. >> i can show you the retail plans. >> oh, great. >> let's pull that back up
1:06 pm
so if you see the pink area on the bottom of the screen there. >> we're dividing into 9 possible spaces uh-huh. >> but the thinking is that the two on the ceda and on the nesdz will be combined to be 2 separate spaces those 4 spaces who be combined into two and the four in the middle will separate individual so the two on the south side are being schneider as restaurant that is the one we'll open as the restaurant and the outdoor seating overlooks the mission bay courtyard and the two on the ned are start for
1:07 pm
van ness so we're, however, designing that space so could accommodate a restaurant in future years so if they vacate in 25 years it could be converted back to a restaurant space the four interior spaces will be designed to accommodate lighter restaurant use so not the large restaurant use about accommodate a waxer shop something like that it will accommodate that range of what you're seeing mission bay now from our conversation with the brokers they think the restaurant spaces may go into the, a r buildings and morality by the time it opens up we're designing it to go either way. >> no grocery stores. >> no, it's not designed as a
1:08 pm
grocery at this point. >> through the chair if i may commissioner bustos as many of you may know the beacon place the ancestor grocery store for the neighborhood and a series of other market hall concepts under is a market hall being proposed further up fourth street across the street from fourth street a block up the street a food hall like a style and i'll ask my colleague to talk about the mission bay specific and the proposed warriors market hall concept a few blocks south temporary uses from food truck parks that are going in and this is our senior development specialist and the interim project manager. >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm so project

1:10 pm
the build out as the market improves we've been able to attract a boarder range of retail but at this point with the market hall concept that serves the folks on this south side of the channel and bread and butterer, if you will grocery stores the safeway in that serving that market shed for this up to this point in time okay. >> all right. then. >> okay. thank you. >> those - my questions anyone have a question on the design? comments? okay. good? okay >> do we have a mansion. >> it would be nice to have a motion.

incorporated and documented into the agreement we've taken direction from the commission and essentially been implementing that i think you saw a fairly detailed version we further reif i understand and that version is what you saw in june. >> that's what is being implemented. >> yes. >> all right. >> and those are some of the things you're working on the counseling the you know left turn /* landlord and the 5 or of a readiness agencies that the mayor's office of housing has a memo of different agencies that developers can work with. >> we're going to get reports on that correct. >> once we start that process after you know for example this
1:32 pm
project after the construction loan closes that is the trigger so then we'll a month later we would expect to get the early outreach plan and report back after that okay. >> at that will be like a quarterly report a or at least - >> we can ask the mayor's office to report quarterly uh-huh. >> okay. thank you. >> okay commissioner bustos. >> yeah. >> so it goes back to the issue i raised a few times about a workshop how to prepare folks that are certificate of preference holders so i want to be able to say that this is a good thing for us to do so if we can work with stiff staff and we'll let you know one of the
1:33 pm
things that we are hoping i'll say me is that people that lived in san francisco should come back to san francisco and so the certificate of preference holders are very important they were forced out didn't chose to leave forced out because of the redevelopment we want to fix what was wrong i have a great deserve so see those who have roots come back to san francisco you'll hear a lot of that so if we can somehow whatever we need to do that do that i'd like for us to do that there's a lot of projects coming down the pike so if we account get people into
1:34 pm
affordable units we can get people ready to be there so when the lottery happens they are prepared and we'll get them back so the next thing you you have really good numbers regarding the sbe and w pe but similar to mr. washingtons point you know one of the things that we've been asking staff is it would be great to get some sort of graphical information on the businesses the developers are using the reason i say that is because you know those programs were instituted to create a level of fairness and what happens or what we're seeing what i'm seeing especially in
1:35 pm
the mission district people are setting up shop with the disability e zip code you have businesses that do the great work they don't get the business to create a level of fairness you know people, companies and people provide services consulting companies and individuals they should be able to do that we should try to promote folks that are invested in the community get those opportunities to vie for those contracts; right? so some folks think to is another gold rush area they'll come in and get rich yet people are here for a long time one of
1:36 pm
the things i've asked some sort of bio gravel as you get the numbers ask the developers to get the information about who those contractors are we're saying it is great what's behind the numbers we as a staff and commission and as a city let developers know that we want this to be fair for people who are invested here for a long time if we make it a priority then the developers will make it a priority so that's the power in the leverage we have; right? again going back to try to make right what was wrong and we have an opportunity to do that so if somehow we can get that send it out as an e-mail to the commission and we get a report
1:37 pm
>> but project specific. >> bio gravel. >> some information on folks and maybe in the power point if you'd like that screen. >> so people know what we're looking at for . >> maybe speak to getting the commissioners that information. >> i just want to echo the sentiment we've heard in the past and echo that sentiment to the developers in terms of looking at san francisco businesses and the importance to the commission and to the agency level of sb participation that is san francisco m b e is important and the contractors on
1:38 pm
exhibit c to the extent we get additional information we'll do with that the developers there's a short biographical and 89 excuse me. >> yes. commissioner singh. >> do you you know how many we are on the certificate of preference holders list. >> how many certificate of preference holders will be living in this building. >> now how many is going to be there. >> i did not know the number of certificate of preference offhand but the project manager jeff white may know.
1:39 pm
>> i can't remember the total numbers. >> sorry i don't have that it was approximately, six hundred and 70 that are active and that are you know on our the current list what we've been building at 1184 street we ended at 11 or 12 applied and some fell out we ended up with 6 that were housed out of the 9 did units available yeah. >> do we notify them what is available. >> pardon me. >> do we notify them. >> i didn't that's what we're implementing and part of the marketing process. >> okay. thank you. >> through the chair commissioner singh jeff white was correct approximately as of 2013 and new
1:40 pm
data there were 6 hundred and 65 active cop holders on the list as you recall when mrs. benjamin from oewd presented the information as part of the cop and affirm marketing to find new companies holders as you recall commissioners we engage under the former agency a consulate to refresh that list to make sure our list was correct there's a push to finds additional new active certificate of preference hollers and to make sure that every single from the ongoing workshops and the counteragency that are happening quarterly from sf d.c. to register
1:41 pm
readiness and the targeted outreach to certificate of preference holders and increase that active certificate list. >> okay. thank you. >> i have a question similar to the question i asked on the other item on motorbike i know that is early but every time i read this it sound great and then the added feature there is retail and it seems like san francisco is apparently believed to be able to sustain a lot of retail my interest to make sure that the retail is offered and the right price point for a diversity so do we know how it will unfold arrest the related california has been working on the transbay block 8 i want to
1:42 pm
call the vice president to address your question. >> okay. >> good afternoon vice president with related your question scholz is we've been working on this actually over the last few months loousht the marketing to see what is available in addition we have a requirement in our d da to provide the ocii body the - a report for the market conditions and specifically to the grocery so we've hired a research specialists by the donate of analytic to talk about the types of facilities we've been supported in the area they've conducted a study we'll
1:43 pm
share with ocii in the next day or two and actually team up with sort of the model a model for what type of tenants will be able to occupy the grocery and the ground floor we're studying to figure out what that is being to activate the lane or that exists within the project there was not a great amount of retail but as you pointed out madam chair rosales it is actually important to be able to activate the area the study was focused on trading joe's and organic like the whole foods and up scale such as a molly stone and independent they looked at the market share what would be attractive. >> what kind of revenues by the population and the market share
1:44 pm
per i've tussle have the tools the tenants will use to generate on a weekly b.a.'s basis we'll share that with ocii the short answer we're not decided and sharing our research with ocii over the next few months as this thing develops obviously the project is still yet to start the project it is a fairly large project that is ongoing it is difficult to get a tenant to commit that earlier for any of the retail space, however, we're continuing to study it and i object to give us updates. >> and the only other question i have was one of timing am i maybe this is a question - i'm not sure to whom it deals with
1:45 pm
the two projects back to back on the same calendar it is different areas but similar subject affordable housing and from what i can tell from the construction schedule am i reading this right they're both to be completed around the same time in 2018. >> what you is a two. >> the transbay and mission bay. >> i can't speak to the mission bay. >> the 2018 and the complete in january 2018 this one. >> i can say that the transbay affordable project is slated to start this coming january and related t n d credit is supposed to have it done two years later reason i raise it i think this is into so the marketing question and - excuse-me. insuring that there is enough notice that people who can
1:46 pm
qualify for the incentives we can reach out to them maybe we should look at the cooperation on marketing i don't know what the contrasts will be it seems to me if things come online the target populations are similar even in two different areas of the city they're both you know south of market pretty much have we ever cropped the project >> the mayor's office of housing and community development is rolling out rue out dalai. >> we'll have a party what that happens (laughter) please invite me. >> (laughter). >> look at the calendar. >> so i think there is coordination the idea that you know people that are interested
1:47 pm
in affordable housing they registration with dalai and hfa as projects come out they'll be notified and have an opportunity to apply. >> dalai is it not spring of 2016? >> you i'm hearing it is early 2016. >> homeownership first then the roll out then rental of which those are rental our point madam chair rosales is well-taken the projects are finishing in most of each other and people will be applying they're both at 50 percent ami and then as you may know the related project as 70 developers fully subsidize the bmr from 40 to 50 percent ami that's hundred and 50 unions and then another in essence hundred and 50 units 3 hundred units in
1:48 pm
the protocol right there people will be applying and it is generally, the same income level so a coordination in market value efforts through tools or otherwise, it will be important so people don't have to keep politically e applying and the template procedures and our suggestions to make sure there is not a difficult hurdle for people to qualify for in particular building and not qualify in the other using the same income credit, etc. >> that's exactly right it goes to the question it commissioner singh raised about the certificate of preference holders that make it i think we have a golden opportunity to you know achieve as much success with those two units and projects as we can because everything i hear about the lottery i've said this many times it is a lottery that set
1:49 pm
people up frankly in my opinion for disappoint we can't manage everyone's expectations but have the ability to do so it is fair otherwise poem say why bother it is my humble opinion. >> yeah. if we can coordinate it would be great. >> and any other projects that the mayor's office of housing and community development has got we can't track them all it would be great. >> okay yes. >> i don't know who to address this to but maybe to tiffany or jeff it would be great to have a presentation a general presentation of all the projects going on and what their finishing and the outreach and
1:50 pm
the update maybe you know so those two are next to each other because we receive our presentations project per project and nice to get a map on what's happening in the mission bay and transbay to get an idea of the grocery stores is they're going to be a pharmacy and where's the forewent a sense are we say that possible to do that. >> i'll take a stab at that we have the annual report we provided about a month ago and that is actually got a lot of great data and maps so is or it is in sections we can get a sense the predevelopment and what is the in construction so the dates are all the there that can be tracked you've seen our
1:51 pm
historic pipeline we try to get it out quarterly so this give us a spreadsheet format that's a good resource. >> i was at the ocii office it was great to see the you know visible we could see this is what's happening in transbay and mission bay you know the shipyard and what retail outlets or retail stores radio being proposed when it is going to be finishing it is sort of giving us a sense we're so focused project by project and that would be nice you know we're working on the retail consultants to help them so what eventually is it troekz or something else schedule that put
1:52 pm
that in our calendar what would be great your looking at tiffany. >> we spent two months in june getting the big picture and the 21 thousand affordable units of which 7 thousand are affordable and the inclusionary or the stand alone i think we have that big picture and part of the - although the board just approved our budget in july we'll be review as part of our rock the b second half of the budget year i'll suggest as part of the expenditures and the pragmatic work a mid year look in essence mid bucket look at where we are the pragmatic your sphere we're
1:53 pm
focused on the 3 multi year major approved projects to honor the commenting commitments in the mid year recognized payment schedules we've review where we are. >> where we are. >> in addition obviously how many companies holders get approved are modifying in and certificate of preference that would be. >> certainly on a quarterly basis the detailed look on the deep dive in the marketing and the cop and not much as changed 2, 3, 4 a month but certainly on the equally and yearly the project is complete and

3:13 pm
walgreens in san francisco to participate in this program. >> that was my only clarification we're prepared forever the vote. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the calendar has been adopted unanimously. >> thank you, commissioners item 7 the dpw policy on the dpw facilities as you recall this was introduced at the last meeting. >> good afternoon, everyone. commissioners colleen i did not have anything additional as the secretary said the draft of the policy at the last meeting it didn't require our package of the resolution only the affirmation. >> i was wondering if on this is more a technical question on the block that we have which on page 2 if you would get that if so r
3:14 pm
this is this is yet california but for the process in the text and my two questions and which i believe are editorial under the section for dpw non-hospital building and director would review and submit recommendations and would it seems to me that the commission actually then makes also a review and recommendation; right? to the board of supervisors as it says under item d. >> yeah. >> so the block should clarify that by putting that in and the board recommends. >> so i'll make that change. >> thank you and so the last - the bottom block expelling
3:15 pm
facility naming in connection with the gift of any amount u amount the director reviews and submits the remedies for final approval and here i believe under our section e it says that the commission will approve the request so the word approve needs to be there also and moves it to the board of supervisors. >> to be consistent with our text. >> that's right thank you for catching that commissioner. >> so if those are accepted as the editorial correction ann another motion it in order to approve the column. >> so moved. >> there is a motion and a second is there further discussion on the policy? if not, we're prepared vote
3:16 pm
>> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the policy is passed unanimously thank you thank you, commissioner i also note no public comment or questions item 8 is the resolution of the port naming the general clinic and richard a fine clinic. >> i'm not sure who is representing item - ms. >> if you recall a presentation at the last meeting. >> yes would you like to help refresh our minds on the items. >> there was a proposal on the small video last week of the part of the richard fine to rename the general clinic at san francisco general hospital the richard h fine clinic and the drafts resolution in front of you for your consideration compliant with the - and the draft resolution is before you the motion will be in order. >> so moved. >> is there a second.
3:17 pm
>> there's a second commissioner sanchez. >> yes. >> yeah. i just like to make a comment pertaining to the naming of that clinic regarding dr. fine initially when it was brought before the jc c to be named by the department and in reference to the hourlong program in general many of us attended it was an awesome tribute to a outstanding recommendation to the richmond h fine clinic i sort of took the wind out of my sails it was shifted to dr. richard fines people's clinic and i've been trying to get that out of high head why hadn't it
3:18 pm
bothered me i've known dr. fine when i joined and at 69 all the way through and couldn't think of a more outstanding position to have a clinic named at the san francisco general hospital to have it named that i guess somehow this sort of limitations his focus and maybe i'm just responding many of us were involved in the 60s and 70s in coming back with the gi bill to berkley and at central nervous system that was part of our effort but dick fine was an extraordinary human being he played a key roll in working with many of us at the general to form call the urban healthy
3:19 pm
was a key member it involved every single chief of service at the general from dr. tom surgery to dr. from that he had arctic's and we got them altogether and got the funding, etc. to not only increase the qualities of service based on the philosophy of our faculty and residents the outcomes in reference to what they're doing and dr. fine played a critical role and continues to play a critical role so the funds many of the folks that served only the committees were some of the old guard the services of retired champions and many at the oil library at the san francisco general you saw all departments
3:20 pm
one or two some were submitted with replacements and this is a meaningful thought so i got a few comments from dick fine represents the finest of central nervous system so i want to interject that that needs to be said and something else that is important dick fine figure out through the urban health board to insure the minority students in potrero hill be bayview hunters point and the mission had opportunities through san francisco general hospital did this through the urban health and navigate 4 videotapes we're working with the students and working with other groups to increase access to training and minority positions one the key people involved was francis a mexican-american who become a nurse and got her masters was the director of the urban health
3:21 pm
project and she was showing so impressed with his service unfortunately after they passed away left a scholarship for the students from the valley to go into nursing and paycheck to the services he provided to the community to me had doesn't say enough about him the reason i'm saying that in other types of awards like the staff like the julie the honorees for top residency in each of the departments we think about what dr. discretionary review violence did but julie discretionary review violence he supported many the dean and the chancellor but his commitment was the quality of care at general hospital we had the rapid report and talked about
3:22 pm
who they were and why they're here so as i envision dick fine clinic i imagine their teaching the under graduates and staff what an outstanding position dick machine fine was in the memory of san francisco general hospital that was dedicated to serving i'll regardless of country or people anyway i just want to share that i think that - he doesn't like to be so-called - i mean, he marks to a difficult drum but worked within those organizations and programs to insure that access to qualify remains the flagship of excellence and the medication that no other departments in the central nervous system we feel some of us feel quite strongly it would have been great to keep
3:23 pm
it that way and the curriculum and the training of the future health providers would certainly reflect his philosophy and commitment to people of all walks of life that was what he was through the chair i apologize for getting into that but i'll support it so recommended but i do feel you know it could have been greater had we kept the tradition and used that as an ongoing teaching this is in my opinion. >> thank you, commissioner because commissioner you can amend the resolution but i think i'd ask director garcia. >> yes. i asked the same question and know it is not just people so i asked the same question that request that went through dr. fine and that way i honestly
3:24 pm
think it takes away from what you said dr.ations and fine i believe that went through him and he supported that and in fact he does walk to a different drum i wanted to honor the way he was and i the that through the staffer that presented it i appreciate our comments and puts the meaning that is the bigger title. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> okay. i think we could note the reason it the name is in and unless commissioner you're entitled to amend the resolution okay. any further comments if not all those in favor of the
3:25 pm
resolution as presented please say i opposed any public comment no vision zero update. >> item 9. >> good afternoon, commissioners and director barbara garcia and secretary thanks for the opportunity i'm megan wear the director of the health and sustainability and also co-sponsor of the vision zero task force to present to my colleagues we put together vision zero initiative in may of 2014 the committee passes the resolution in support of vision zero we're here to provide an update. >> so just a give you a little
3:26 pm
bit of background about preceding vision zero san francisco has been annotate leader respect to transportation safety with the first to install the pedestrians countdowns we're all familiar with now we've been a leader with implementing this to schools in 2010 had a mayoral directive for the collision down by 2021 we played a leadership role including for the prelims of a number of improvements and publishing a pedestrian strategy in 2014 vision zero was adopted citywide including by the commission and citywide task force was established i co-sponsor you know despite the exchanges around this at the end of 2013 a girl 6 years old was killed in a
3:27 pm
intersection awhile crossing the 6th death in that december and the city's responses is no more deaths are acceptable and really the only acceptable target is zero we now have san francisco in vision zero that is supportive by a number of city departments the mayor the board of supervisors we meet on a quarterly basis of the task force towards the ends of coordinating around engineering and execution and enforcement and activities to fundamentally will eliminate traffic deaths by 2024 it was introduced in 1997 had much success we needed to design a transportation system that protects the most vulnerable people using the transportation system including people walking and biking and seniors and young people i think
3:28 pm
in many ways that block is consistent with the mission of the department of public health i know this is you guys can you see the map hopefully in our handout i don't know about that slide since vision zero was adapted it is inspiring to see the national limit it growing hopefully, a map that shows the different cities across the country that adopted vision zero and in 2014 san francisco and the city we've got a number of cities in california adopted last year well including santa fe, san diego and a number of cities in the country including portland and seattle and additional cities are really every week their say new energy around our city and country a
3:29 pm
vision to do you want that to san francisco is at the forefront of this. >> yeah. >> oh, no. >> i apologize. >> thank you there's the map and really with respect to in san francisco what we've seen despite early declines in the 90s and the 80s starting in the 2000s we've seen the please be advised the ringing of and use of cell phones to in the death in our city thirty fatalities a year up to 2 hundred a year injuries and approximately 70 percent are people walking and biking and half the people killed are walking awhile walking are seniors while i'm here to talk about the leadership that the department is providing in that work including on the task force with respect to the data and analysis and evaluation and education
3:30 pm
engagement in our growing roles as well the task force is co-chaired by mta and dpw we meet as i said on a quarterly basis comprised of city agencies that play a key role no vision zero we've got active community engagement including the neighborhood coalition led and i by walk sf over 40 organized that signed on that coalition it is really existing to see the continued engagement of the community in this work. >> in 2014 and 2015 we had a number of successes with respect to progress on vision zero it's first year we had 24 projects in 24 months 16 projects are underground they're on track to
3:31 pm
completing that project delivery showing the city's commitment with respect to education citywide campaigns honest leadership on this she'll talk about and seen an increase or increase on the part of the police department and working on developing more data tools to make sure that the initiatives are day driven and also has hired a new epidemiologist who is serve for this work as well as advancing with community organizations we have a two year action strategy on our we are talking about that is online that includes more information about the initiatives as well as resolution of the number of departments that joined the hunting in supporting vision
3:32 pm
zero with respect to the action in 2015-2016 i highlighted in blue when i'm talking about we're going to dive deeper on today including the citywide strategy for education to schools and we're excited in the most recent budget in the seniors program is implemented given the disproportionate fatalities among the seniors and monitoring the resources and continuing the community engagement slides on reverse is a high-level summary of the resources into vision zero which is appropriate three-quarters by grants and 25 percent from the general fund with respect to the data piece one key contribution that was identifying the high injury network that map identifies the
3:33 pm
12 percent of street miles of fatality injuries to vision zero includes people in vehicles and riding bikes and vehicles this is in the contained how to effectively have the preservation initiative at its core of vision zero is the fundamentally addressing the issues of evaluated so in red the high injury corridors in communities of concern that are disproportionately low income communities and communities of color and community where people are walking and relying on transit and thor percent of the streets in the city 50 percent of part of high injury network dpw is also working with other city departments to develop accountability metrics we know that the goal of zero fatalities is you know the how to be accountability in the short time
3:34 pm
to have any driven actions and monitoring the impacts on the street a number of metrics we are working to measure in the interim our new epidemiologist we're excited about our collaboration with the san francisco general hospital to work with the trauma sushlgz that treat the patients and working with the polite data to capture 25 percent of cyclists injuries on the records and we're able to target our initiatives and she's really done precedent work meeting with the police department and the transportation agency all on the same page about the monitoring that is very intuitive and simple i sure it you it not as simple as it seems weren't to
3:35 pm
having it consistently recorded to the public and there's a screen side of map that is u updated with respect to fatalities we've also development an online interactive injury data with environmental data on a number of factors that are associated with how we predict and look at it patterns this is a screen shot of map that helps us look at not only the types of injuries but what are the patterns where the aerial streets and fast moving traffic around schools and senior centers and this type of tool has been used for example with the sfmta capital improvement program for pedestrian safety to analyze the patterns and really
3:36 pm
target their engineering to the patterns we see in the corridors so have more program improvement measures and now i'm going to turn it over to ann no way that will talk about education. >> good afternoon, everyone. everybody with respect to education related to vision zero we really are working very close with our partners headed by the mta to create the prosperity citywide strategy to the board of supervisors and the transportation authority outlining all the different educational opportunities welds implement in the next few years for vision zero and we've adopted 37b9 with the information proud about it's the public preservation is not just teaching individuals about how to slow down or cross the
3:37 pm
streets but we're effecting all the levels we're talking to the providers in various was our health providers the muni operators large vehicle operators we're working with the coalitions i'll talk about in a minute and changing our organizational practices and working with flunking 0 policy and we're going to achieve vision zero we have a citywide strategy that outlines a number of different educational opportunities i managed save out to school and as megan tubed we've included the streets for pedestrians and the mayor's office has funded it in the city budget for that the next two years because over 50 percent of pedestrian fatalities are seniors and this is a population that needs a lot of save so save
3:38 pm
outreach we're looking at ways inform coordinate all the information about vision zero and bring that directly to seniors and people with disabilities we focused on creating community-based education this picture is a standard campaign i've worked with supervisor kim's office all over at tenderloin and selma and a had tare highlighting the community residents a professional photo shot that is in the neighborhood we live here please slow down we offer some grants to selective groups that are working in neighborhoods that are on the high injury network walk sf is the leads for the coalition and groups that serve modeling and non-english communities south of market and chinatown ceda and the economic agency with working with groups in their native languages to
3:39 pm
deliver the information a national program we founded in 2009 we're interested in promoting walking and biking for obviously for various reasons of promoting health to make it safety in order to do so we work with the school district and a number of city agencies and a number of community-based groups school starts in 2 weeks we're adding 10 for elementary schools to the program that covers half of the elementary schools i'm proud to say they've passed the vision zero last spring they're one of the lastly partners to join us and as part of changing organizational practices our team worked with the mta to produce intents the schools on the next those are schools that
3:40 pm
have typically high rates of walking and have a lot of injuries in the buffers of school their prioritized to get the improvements to the streets and sidewalks my prime is gene elementary have r half of the population walking to school and the highest number of pedestrian injuries we have asked mta to produce intents and have gotten 3 grants for the elementary we work with the vision zero coalition it is lead by walk sf and in partnership with the bicycle coalition they help folks to keep the city accountability we again offer many grants and the prime example is actually before vision zero we gave walk sf a little less than $10,000 in 2011
3:41 pm
to implement a local option in the subtly was passed to allow the municipalities to implements 15 mile-per-hour school zones we're the only city to fully take advantage of the local option to the city hall's that are eligible other schools in san francisco have done it on a skais basis but walk sf worked with mta to get if implemented for all the schools it makes all the schools once the speed limit drops it helps with the bumps and the speed limits needs to be reduced first, it was done by walk sf i want to acknowledge one thing barbara co-wrote with her counterpart ed reiskin and
3:42 pm
acknowledge the hard work with rachel and the communication team for working closed with the mta communication team in helping to profile vision zero in the communication it's been getting a lot of attention and that's the end of the presentation we're open for questions. >> thank you very much questions commissioners commissioner taylor-mcghee. >> a clarification goith the 15 mile-per-hour they're eligible for the school zone unless they're actually on high-speed aerial so 4 or more lanes not allowed to have that in the state law only 4 schools in san francisco for example betsey carmichael has it does
3:43 pm
not have it on one end which is on 7th street but on the surrounding 3 areas the block that are narrower and smaller so but those streets will be getting bigger improvements through other avenues of vision zero and they're a dozen schools that have absolutely no boundaries the mission school is one1 on 16th street from mission all the way up to church. >> commissioner sanchez. >> this is a think excellent report i'm really glad to see the coordination among the nonprofits this is a good benchmark a number of schools that may not be eligible with the early childhood schools that are part of the school district
3:44 pm
they're not huge but they're very important and they have families that walked or drive cars and drop off, etc. i know them particularly in the mission that contacted us over the years about trying to get signage that shows kids crossing or especially you have like alleys going between and you get cars or motorcycles and bikes and parents are trying to pick up their can i see and the teachers it is really traumatic my question is there some unit that could be contacted or we could refer them to get signs posted both in the eel and in the white zones which they have they have for a year and a half to get the signs saying do not park here it's a real question. >> i'll certainly take that back to mta the issue is
3:45 pm
unfortunately in all of the codes that mta has to operate by the schools are denied by k through 12 we'll brick bring it back. >> it is we're trying to fourth why. >> it comes up repeatedly. >> i'd like to acknowledge tour staff i sat in one of the meetings with the police and municipal transportation agency with a variety of different agencies they've done an incredible jobs where they have the dollars for the endemocrat lots of so the influence of the health department on the transportation system not only for vision zero but other issues have come up in terms of the growing city of san francisco so i want to acknowledge many years of their companionship around
3:46 pm
this area they've done a fantastic job thank you. >> very good eric commissioner king. >> congratulations to our ability to get grants that takes a lot of pressure off the city so congratulations i had a request this request in the future when you give us the data on fatalities by injuries that is what you're aiming for as well and it would be great to track the progress on that. >> it is something having lane in a our epidemiologist that is based out of central nervous system and we are working closely to get not only the severe injuries by the police department. >> defined by the hospital they've got different clarifications at the it is
3:47 pm
important to understand for the reasons to sharing the preliminary analysis and we looked forward to implementing them. >> that's great whether you look at other cities that are farther along than us on in journey what turn out to be the common iltsz that the work is hard to bring the numbers down to zero. >> i mean, i think you know in other - you know the example of other international examples is a movement at the core of sweden the engineering so the reality we have a high-level of commitment but you know taking the time to get into the ground is building up the infrastructure so doing with we they've done a great job they have the effective approach of
3:48 pm
getting things in the ground so you see in the tenderloin removing the parking at the intersections so things go underground and improving the crosswalks or the infrastructure we can do that in the short time and the long term getting things in the ground the 24 projects has been something we're excited about happening but doing that you know there's a vision zero network that is being kicked off nationally in of the former director of the bicycle coalition is the director of that network she just got back from a fellowship in europe how do we bring that to the united states combining those improvements with data and fundamental focusing on speed we have a goal of fatalities and
3:49 pm
speed is the strongest predict so so currently we're not it is not legal to implement something in the state of california but in washington, d.c. they've seen a 50 percent reduction in fatalities so long term with vision zero helping change the culture around how to produce intents human life rather than how fast we get if from a to b we're loading to address. >> thanks. >> yes commissioner. >> thank you for coming back after you presented to us last year as the day that i present to us as the number of walking kids walking or people walking and biking goes up it is how the
3:50 pm
data shows that the numbers are not going on is there a way to look at the encouragement of biking and walking. >> in san francisco we had really strong goals with respect to increasing walking and biking that is being tracked by the sfmta so i think you know vision zero is part of that larger mod role how to see the increases but not seeing the increases in most of the injuries i look at the map of san francisco there are concentrated in the in and of itself quadrant of the city we have the most walking that didn't have to be occupied but walking that is a design problem in the large part we can fix we want more people walking don't have to see the rise a that's
3:51 pm
what they've been able to accomplish. >> that would be great if that data can be a comparison represented. >> all right. so on the accountability and benchmarks then would we be expecting that in the coming report a year from now obviously you're putting a number of things in place. >> yeah. we are. >> we have this raw data it is good it is starting to gown again, i think you have some others to try to do this i actually was - i thought the school zones were 15 miles. >> for years. >> (inaudible). >> please accompany to the microphone. >> sorry not before 2011. >> that wasn't part of motor vehicle code.
3:52 pm
>> prior to that that was 25 mile-per-hour. >> really so it dropped so therefore there is a - there will be signs - there are signs interest. >> there are signs all schools eligible that are signs posted 15 mile-per-hour. >> does that include all schools or only public. >> all parochial and charter and private we have approximately 2 hundred schools in the city and about 2/3rd's is public but all the schools with eligible. >> then i know that there are yell crosswalks; right? are those also paint at all the schools. >> yes. those are specific the yellow to schools. >> all the 2 hundred schools. >> yep all crossing guards eligible at all schools.
3:53 pm
>> it's hard to believe it's been a year since you were all here and you've done a lot is i just by the following year; right? the endemocrat lost and all we should be able to get summer day on what is happening as we move towards it i thought that was great to get international data and see how the other cities are doing a he how we're staying ahead in no further comments we thank you for your report and look forward to you returning with another positive report. >> great, thank you commissioners no public comment item 10 the dpw proposal to modernize the proposal and the city option and create a new city wellness fund. >> this item was introduced at
3:54 pm
the last meeting so you'll have a vote. >> good afternoon, commissioners el lien again in response to the commissions discussion at the last meeting we went back with additional analysis in 3 key areas and submitted a follow-up memo to summarize the work we had done so you asks you to do an economic stress test we performed and asked us for address information to changes to some of the language in the resolution and encouraged us to have an eye it on the developments program for future either further evaluation we discussed it also i'm having the same problem with
3:55 pm
my - but i'll continue i'm on slide 3 of the - i don't know if you have this slide but essentially for the economic stress test we looked at the trends that emerged during the last recession from 2009 to june sorry 2007 to june 2009 june 2009 was when the recovery began we were not fully out of low period at this point we ask the uc berkley does the affordability analysis to look at the historical effect of the recession on san franciscans income they told us two major take a ways the first income shifts towards little lower end of the spectrum of the things in your packet between 2008 and 2010 there was a 9 point increase in the number of san
3:56 pm
franciscans who earned less than 2 hundred and 50 percent of the poverty level those at the lower-income increase and at the same time, a decrease in 5 percent and the incomes shifts peeks in 2010 as incomes grail increase as of the eco report from 2012 at point hadn't reached the recession levels i'm sorry technical difficulties you can't see the power point the other key findings a recession will present a increase in apartment employment for lower than the 2 hundred and 50 percent of the poverty level and another graph in the packet is apartment to that in 2010 and the shift towards lower incomes
3:57 pm
is partially explained by people working apartment during the recession in addition to sorry so we look at the effect of the recession in 2008 and 2009 on bridge to coverage and healthy san francisco on the bridge to recovery program we used the income shifts to model the bridge to coverage in the economic downturn we took the 9 point difference increase in the incomes of people below 2 hundred and 50 percent of poverty and applied that to the projection of the programmers and the 1 point increase in those 0 above 4 percent of income to model our participation overall we anticipate the program is sustainable bus the
3:58 pm
lower-income flshd the federal participation and decreases the participation on local resources the number of people eligible either they moved the job and didn't quality them for the program in new engrossment increases because the employers will be transcribing on their on behalf of that overall increase is greater than than the increase in expenditures related to the people if the program because those additional people are eligible for federal subsidies than the people pavrnt in the program we discussed that uc berkley the inflation scenario in the event that health insurance and bridge to coverage rises but in the coverage of the costs is
3:59 pm
increasing but the employers is tied to the health insurance that also rise at the cost of covered california we believe that is neutral on the program we also did a stress test on healthy santa fe san francisco what does it mean for healthy san francisco and in an economic downturn san francisco will continue to fulfill the 17 thousand ingredient for coordinating the care and continuing to do what it does for us today as previously recorded to the commission a healthy role model the general fund forever the emergency use we the an analysis in our original memo of the 12 hundred individuals we allowed to city in healthy it san francisco as a result of unaffordability of health
4:00 pm
insurance and we element that will void 2 hundred e.r. i have visits at san francisco general hospital enough to provide preventive care for 2 hundred and 35 families new landscape the modernization proposal mitigates the economic downturn of healthy san francisco in two important ways one it eligibility for medi-cal for the lowest income more people will be eligible for - more individuals will be eligible for bridge to coverage giving them coverage and not making them ineligible for healthy san francisco second item the health commission asked you us to look
4:01 pm
at the wellness funds and hesitant on approving the wellness program since the last commission meeting we'll have presented to the small business commission and the health population division we've received valuable feedback from each the presentations small business commission we gave a similar presentation that you got at our last commission meeting no concerns or recommended changes for the bridge to coverage or healthy san francisco components of the proposal and for the employee wellness program the small business commission oebldz the health commission that the small business in particular are not likely to have the means or on the human resources sign to manage a wellness program they asked you us during the stakeholder process to look at developing a program that smaller employers what
4:02 pm
participate in collectively rather than having to manage on their own consultation with the population health division identified other opportunities to partner and say they've generally excited about new ways to partner for example four onsite occupation health and safety training and many clinics for disease testing and they also were excited about the ability to tie those to overall efforts to increase the health literacy and enrollment insurance and addressing building the employer was a critical xhoenlt of chief financial officer the health in san francisco in response to the health commission feedback and the information from the small business commission we've made modifications to the resolution which you have in your form that requests your approval to
4:03 pm
composer and among the option that have the hunting restraining order lubricating taking those services suggested that the health commission asks do us for . >> and finally on the evaluation of the new bridge to coverage program we heard clearly preacher from dr. kateing he wants us to be sure that the impact of the proposal was thought-out and the program design we can do that so we've been in conversation with the san francisco health commission and the bridge to heartache coverage to make sure we can track health updates and citywide health indicators and the health benefits over time that's a summary of memo we
4:04 pm
presented to you in follow-up to your last meeting a revised resolution rather is available for you for your consideration and polk action today. >> thank you commissioners we did receive before your place a written statement from the san francisco labor council which i believe you have endorses the proposed bridge program and had some issues considering the wellness we've heard from the people from mr. paulson and he has submitting that in writing commissioner pating who was unable to be here sent a note he'll encourage and personally feels that health care makes sense and hopes that his fellow
4:05 pm
commissioners b will vote to approve that resolution he also called for us to be mindful of the means for community assistance and contributions from employers employees and all to create a good universal health care program so you have that letter before you are there any - anyone signed up for public comment. >> not received the public comment i apologize for the glitch not someone to help us out. >> commissioners discussion or a motion on the resolution? >> commissioner - commissioner singer. >> thanks colleen and thanks for being responsive to my comments we're getting used to our thoroughness we're super
4:06 pm
helpful your team and you spent a lot of time on i just wanted to say that i appreciate the change to the language on the wellness proposal and as we're getting into that understanding the complexity and trying to make trade offs i encourage the department as our studying it to not get completely sold that we should do this as you study is it you shill have still have to keep in mind the possibility that might not be a good use of funds certainly not arguing those things you've sited in the workplace that are available to itch larger employers are not available and potentially good things to do for the set of san franciscans that work in small employers but i think that one of the goals for studying it
4:07 pm
ought to be if we're as a city going to devote resources practically speaking where are we going to get as much help if we spend those funds someplace else it is hard to measure we have to have that mindset to maybe we're not going to get the return on the investment the universities or other populations that need it much more remember much of those people are access to some health insurance there are other places i add we keep that possibility in mind as we go through this. >> thank you commissioner sanchez. >> i would move the resolution i think that staff has done the group did an excellent job they've listened and had meeting with the small groups the recommendations is needed gives
4:08 pm
us the flexibility to explore all options some of the major functions are interested in funding the links to provide new services those wellness programs are good for preservation in any way to generate that, etc. so you know there's a lot of exploration we could be doing i hope we'll sure we use those foundation grants to provide a unique model we've been able to do over the years again congratulations and move the resolution this afternoon thank you, thank you there's a motion and second. >> any further discussion on the resolution? commissioner karshmer >> thank you you'll for your thorough review and i'm pleased you linked the public health
4:09 pm
division work to this resolution i think this helps at least as you study this helps groub what this is as opposed to everything i don't think - but it builds on the strength that was a nice addition. >> thank you. >> thank you further comments commissioner taylor-mcghee. >> no sorry no further comments then i echo the very fine work and the responses so promptly it is not easy. >> thank you it is what makes it work. >> we're prepared to >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? resolution has passed unanimously thank you. >> thank you, commissioners item 11 other business. >> commissioners any others business you'd like to bring to
