2:31 am
general contractor bill we are supported by assemblyman chiu heard at the transportation it passed out of committee eric of our staff and soould presented it and others were in support so i think you're working with the coalitions and interests that have been expressed concern over similar bills their satisfied that is a narrow scope of application of the delivery mechanism their satisfied that they're not going to approve it so hopefully that move forward and finally just you know we've been present on what was going on in the measure for the state level the 3 proposals that are on the table in the assembly the

everything from supporting our long-range transportations at sfmta to the neighborhood transportation planning studies that really lead to the corridor supporting the vision zero ramps, safety analysis to the treasure island planning work that we do we are recommending an award of 5 contracts to 5 teams who capture the breathe of skills we're looking for and those skill sets are described on imagine 41 of your packet everything from project management skills basic transportation and community planning to spfld skills in the area of jerry and cost estimating modeling and simulation to expertise in technology and

2:37 am
planning efforts this supported and shown here. >> commissioner cohen has a question. >> i understand there were a total of 37 responses to the rfp we selected 5. >> there were 6 responses let's see that may have encompassed 37 individuals where's the 37. >> the preproposed. >> oh, that's the number that attended on the - >> okay okay yes 37 firms attempt the preproposals conference so the our process goes like this we hold the issues rfp and have a database of firms that are registered with us to receive the notifications of our contract analysis our rfp and
2:38 am
rfp q's we invite any interested firms we answer questions about the scope of work and it is an opportunity for potential vendors to network with each other in the team. >> is it mandatory. >> i know you continue to advance in the process to prequalifying meeting. >> not mandatory we ask all the participants to sign in and provide the contact information we post that as well as questions asked during the conference and the answers that we provided as well q and a we received from e-mail and other needs by the deadline for questions or comments that we provide in the rfp q. >> how do we determine the 5 agencies. >> what happens there is a period of - let's see our schedule i wonder if where we
2:39 am
have the schedule in here we post of the rfp q and a schedule with certain meanwhile dates all culminating in the dates the proposals or the statement of kwfks we do so some of the interim miles are a preconference and date for questions to be submit by any interested potential vendors and provide a date for our transportation authority to provide a written response to those questions and the next milestone after that the date when the statement of qualifications are due to the transportation authority we allow a month between our requests for rfp q issued at statements of kwflgz due. >> on that line it is too long narrow it down so is there a
2:40 am
point system that is attributed can you. >> - >> competitive process yeah. >> to rachel's answer the decision is made by interviews from a panel comprised of other agencies that host the process they make presentations a point system laid in the rfp and they're scored and recommended. >> how do you select the panel. >> i think the team has several internal folks to use and identify an external number from a partnership agencies. >> in this case that was mta. >> within the database you e-mail our information do you keep track of how many women and minorities that are inside the database. >> that's a good question i
2:41 am
believe see they fill out the former then we'll track that. >> is there a dbe we have a dbe be start. the contract in this case how are the proposals xeeftd that contract and so the 5 that were paroled exceeded that and the make up of their teams is included in the page 58 >> right. >> my final question what kind of services will they be doing we can't handle in house. >> absolutely everything let's see if we go to throw the scope of work on page 44 we sometimes use the on calls as an extension of staff transportation planning we actually have consultants do love of the daily work more cost
2:42 am
effectively like conceptually engineering design those firms have can do and others pools in their shops allergy i s mapping the community involvements we've work with the consultant firms more cost effectively then we can with the facilitation or community organizing work that supports the mr. larkin the cost estimation is a situation and modeling where those folks are either civil engineers for transportation modeling engineers they have you know the software that supports the modeling simulation work we don't have in house or experience from what they focus on. >> thank you. >> the technological skills with the equipment themselves. >> that's right. >> we don't have
2:43 am
mr. chair that's all the questions. >> i was going to reiterate we choose the top 5 or 6 firms that submitted the qualifications we choose the ones that submitted - and the enterprise verification you breakdown by consultants some say woman some say asian specific and a asian subcontractors are that noted what do you mean. >> i'll have to ask cynthia. >> cynthia executive director for the finance those are categories by caltrain since the majority of finland we'll be combats grant they've defined the asian-american as a category with indian and bangladesh and others while asian specific are

better. >> sure. >> what actually went on and to give us a sense of how those $2 million is spent that had been a good check for us to make sure that is done properly. >> so a report announcing we show the totals each task order waterway by firm. >> yes. we might sees a pattern it our responsibility to not only approve the overall contract but allocating $2 million to those potential firms at the end of the day we would like to know how it is spent okay. >> okay. >> thank you. any other questions so we've already open up for public comment is there a motion it is an action item.

aufrsz piece of legislation give you a little bit of background a couple years ago the board of supervisors passed an ordinance that limited the number of tobacco sales permits per district to 45 per district district 3 as most supervisorial district has in excess of that number of what the legislation was developed no ability for an individual with a valid existing permit to move to another location in this particular instance the individual who is hsa had this long-term institution is actually the victim of rent increases and found another location interesting enough in a property he was ones previously located in and i think actually as i look back on code section 19 h1 thing that occurred which
3:03 am
is that district 3 is significantly different than the rest of the city in one go profound way i know that supervisor wiener is about to hear which is that by night we have the same number of residents as every other district in the city again day by virtue of downtown and virtue of the remarkable number of tourist that come to the northeast corner of city we have hundreds of thousands for people by day and had i been around representing district 3 in those days, i might have made an amendment it district 3 should have gun allowed a more significant number but the business is nominated for inclusion in the legacy business registry the binding is in

3:11 am
outlets that a very, very important piece of legislation we need to reduce in certain neighborhoods the number of tobacco outlets about there are times exceptions to consider i think this one of them i'm told this not an outlet it sells cigarettes or seeing none, public comment is closed r e e cigarettes this is an existing family owned business the kind of business to support in san francisco o san francisco and not adding to the number of tobacco outlets it is simply allowing a long time existing use to move a few hundred feet away from something outside of their control in terms of landlord i think whether it was raising represented or bring in
3:12 am
a higher paying tenants that so often happens into our neighborhood businesses those days unfortunately, this is a good opportunity for us to support a small family owned neighborhood business without undermining our goals in the legislation around reducing but number of tobacco outlets i'm happy to support this and send it out with a positive recommendation. >> thank you seeking a seeing no other public comment public comment is closed. there is a motion made to send this to the full board did you want to - let's do that unanimously. >> that motion passes unanimously this item will be going to the full board madam clerk item 2. >> amending the green building for the requirements of for energy. >> thank you supervisor wiener is the author of this item item
3:13 am
2 we'll speak and lead the discussion going forward. >> okay. thank you very much madam chair this legislation will help us to meet our goal in california aggressive goal to move towards a new and renewable future in a way from fossil fuels the increase of solar energy in san francisco the legislation is simple and straightforward in any construction projects between one and 10 stories in height will be required to install solar lemons on the projects rooftops either solar panels for electrical or heating the legislation was considered and supported unanimously by both the building inspection commission and the commission on the environment today california's existing state
3:14 am
building codes on title 24 requires month new construction to designate 15 percent of rooftop area quote/unquote solar ready free ofbstacles and enbunts a future owner felt building is consider to place solar panels on the roof the legislation before us today takes us to the next step by saying that in san francisco instead of the roof 15 percent of roof being solar ready that rather 15 percent needs to be solar installed meaningless the solar panels for electricity will be placed as part of the project colleagues in an era we're remind daily and how are you or by the minute of a rapidly changing wliement it is
3:15 am
critical important we do the best we can locally and ultimately at a state level internationally and nationally to make our environment more sustainable reducing energy accumulations and carbon emissions is a result of more sustainable city this legislation which focuses on solar is the first part of what will be a two part effort to promote san francisco rooftops added to the city the next expands the provision to promote greener roofs in general i'd like to thank the staff of the department of the environment their support on the legislation and also thank andrea for his work colleagues no initial questions or comments i'd like to invite up barry from
3:16 am
the investment & infrastructure to make a brief presentation. >> i'm may we have on behalf of our decoration to recommend our approval for this ordinance the goal of the city encap sludz in the zero waste 50 percent of trips by sustainable modes of transportation and 100 percent renewal energy and carbon back into our trees and soil 0 so it 100 percent renewable energy for the resources and continued improvement in terms of efficiency san francisco has lead the way and adopted the standards more consistent nanny other city in california and bring the recommended to you in
3:17 am
the future we're talking about the office how to develop the generation resources and san francisco, of course, is a leader there for the city's a facility for the 100 percent electricity and confusing sf for the electricity option for a wide variety of constituents this ordinance represents. >> pleases speak into the mike thank you. >> excuse me - >> the ordinance represents one more straightforward and pragmatic step towards that goal it's been demonstrated highly cost fiscal the ordinance is a product of considerable throughout the key question have been cost and benefits since 2008 the cost to install is gown 50 percent and the analysis that was conducted by the department of the environment in part of the light recognizes that's cost
3:18 am
fiscal on all buildings we've analyzed with an san francisco climate zone conducted 1984 meetings with a way variety of sfrrld with the department of building inspection and the building department's commission and held numberable meetings particularly with the affordable housing be developers that indicated in many cases ahead of the ordinance in terms of of the new properties and the result is reasonable and practical it building on a state coat and cost effective and therefore the department of the environment recommends your approval thank you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you why not go to public comment. >> oh, supervisor peskin do you want to q ask a question. >> on to supervisor wiener on
3:19 am
page of a provision a new provision that says any new building of group occupancy with electric data progressing will be the exempt from the energy exemptions by the sections mentioned can you explain why that is in there. >> i think i'll ask mr. hooper to explain that provision. >> sure that was inserted at the request of the stakeholder that was responsible for city agency that is developed some data centers and the main issue is practicality the data center is served by a network of individual rooftop units across the rooftop it is changing to reserve a space for the solar. >> so if it was just for one public agency presumably and not
3:20 am
heard from the rest of the stakeholder community why did we write such a broad exemption. >> to facilities today that are stand alone data centers one under construction it is they're used type in general to be constructed i think the impact is small but - >> so if if i may respect through the charge to supervisor wiener i think we should probably better define electronic data processing because clearly the way staff is presenting it, it is a very narrow definition but the way it is written it seems like it could apply to a broad swap of building types we need to look at language i mean electronic data processing could be a lot of people do everyday and but i
3:21 am
think there is a section between data progressing and a processing central we have to define is it so this is not end up being an unat the end broader will that - >> so supervisor thank you for bringing that up why not over the next week weigh take a look at appropriate clarifying language it is fairly intend to an narrow category and to be a valid point you raised so we'll work on the language i don't think that it would be a substantive amendment. >> the comment it is good it staff is here we're requiring that installation of solar which i'm absolutely supportive of -
3:22 am
should we consider the impact of on buildings that will be required to install that when other buildings will ultimate shadow those installations is it fair for us to say you have to install those and next to a 10 story building we permit a 80 story building that shadows that roof is that a fair thing to do i don't think expect to answer that but a conversation 3 is had at department of the environment and start having at the board of supervisors as we start mauntd the installation. >> if you have a comment on that. >> sure two parts it is an insightful question we've thought about a little bit this is part of the reason the trailing legislation we're working with the planning
3:23 am
department on will provide living roofs as a compliance option so the developer will have more fleblthd how a taller building in the solar system to be constructed between the 15 or 20 years after construction the other factor we looked at was that the given the economic imperative to build to whatever the height to build to at a give time it is going to be less frequent that somewhere comes to past we need first a new building subject to the ordinance and then a new building after that to be built the first building so we're depending on second building being permitted construction and delivered within the first 15 or 20 years after the initial
3:24 am
building a of story was completed given the construction timeline will be relatively aware but a living - >> we are as i to build on what i mentioned briefly any opening remarks we're working on trailing legislation that will provide an opening statements instead of instead of the 15 percent solar could choose thirty percent for green roof and so if you're building a building is already shadow that might not might be a good choice to give you that flexibility. >> if i may if you're building a building that is shadowed under this version the ordinance will not apply. >> all right. thank you very much 3 cards in front of me
3:25 am
(calling names). >> good afternoon. my name is a jeanine carter the co-founder of a solar building firm and i'm also a member of the board of directors our state trade organizations for solar installer and rooftop solar state of california and i'm here in support of this legislation san francisco has always been a leader in he and continues to be a leader with groundbreaking legislation this is where we need to go as a planets i'm pleased to be here in supportive and lancaster, california both have mandate and there's no reason why san francisco shouldn't lead the way for the large city and state rooftop solar is eloquent and efficient way to deal with
3:26 am
greening and decategorization of the supply when the panels are generating 2rb89 they serve the trouble load of the building so when i plug my electrical car in when the sun is shining my car is driving on sunshine there is no better way to drive the clean green energy in san francisco than providing four generation and rooftop solar it is the democracy of our electricity supply thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon delaney from bright like that in support of this ordinance a very simple way to encourage the solar jobs in san francisco as well as increases our captain for this

3:28 am

3:34 am
planning code and the - the larger rectangle area in red is the transit center adopted in 2012 which unsustainable increased the heights of the buildings in the area the affordability within transbay assembly bill 812 and the transbay required 25 percent b be affordable the redevelopment plan requires the individual projects within zone one and two 15 percent affordability on site within zone one are 12 blocks of various stages of development block 64 hundred and 79 affordable units and blocks 7, 8
3:35 am
and 912 affordable unit and about to begin construction and bloke 5 is office space under construction and the from the sales of the 11 to 12 is the construction of transit center. >> bloke one is located on fulsome street between main and spear streets this slide shows block one proposed development program on the parcels the top 2/3rd's owned by ocii consists of 35 thousand square feet purchased by ocii in 20031/3rd or four parcels owned by tishman duo to the zone little sites have to be zoned together
3:36 am
regarding the proposed block one project the developers is proposing a health from three to four hundred feet a mixed use owner consisting of three hundred plus units the benefits are increases the total housing units and three to four more units in the tower, 40 percent will be affordable didn't consists of 4 hundred plus units for households between one and 20 percent ami the units will be dispersed in the tower a separate homeowners sfoeshgs the bmr residents we found insignificant shadow impacts on the parks the purposes of the slide to show the benefits of the 4 hundred height verse the three
3:37 am
hundred height limit the far right hand is 73 more units with the 44 more units will be bmr which represents translates into one and 20 more residents this view is of the proposed project looking west from embarcadero and fulsome and this is a view from the bay bridge and it shows what the skyline about look like with the proposed project along with the projects currently in planning and with that, i thank you and i am sorry to josh. >> thank you shawn so, now do e you have the context for block one in the veerments area and i'll focus on the general plan before you on the screen is map 5 the height map in the downtown plan
3:38 am
when the transbay redevelopment area was adopted in 2005 some amendments were adopted as part of this effort and this included adjusting the height on the height mass and as you can see zone one of the redevelopment in red and were there previously heights on the downtown plan indicated p d x the amendments made at the time removed that to reference the downtown transbay nfl an oversight and not lablgd about that indication as neither of the sites in her t 2 b x were the height and once the development plan was adopted again, here's the block noted on
3:39 am
the left out of that amendment with the block one and a small piece of going block two as you can see this for the transbay r50er789 the height currently of block one is 3 and block 2 one of 5 they're out of sync with the general plan and discovered that oversight when we did the consistency finding for the proposal for block one and revised by the office to make it consistent for block one we needed to correct this oversight to reference the plan and erase the other non-applicable of the height that's what is proposed and an additional notion to the map removing the label from the assessors oversees block from the following lots
3:40 am
37 and lot 4 replace that with see the tribute plans it is as simple as that and the planning commission needs to make the amendment to adjust the consistency finding for the changes to block one so this is a precondition of making that finding for block one height amendment not determine the outcome of the amendment only brings the general plan in conformity with the general plan so that that concludes my presentation. and i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> good thank you very much i appreciate your prediction e presentation and thank you for being flexible see if any questions from the colleagues supervisor wiener none supervisor peskin none let's go ahead and take public comment anyone wish to comment feel free i have (calling names)
