8:01 pm
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 building codes on title 24 requires month new construction to designate 15 percent of
8:02 pm
rooftop area quote/unquote solar ready free of obstacles 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 critical important we do the best we can locally and ultimately at a state level
8:03 pm
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 the investment & infrastructure to make a brief presentation.
8:04 pm
>> 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 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
8:05 pm
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 fiscal on all buildings we've analyzed with an san francisco climate zone conducted 1984
8:06 pm
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 page of a provision a new provision that says any new building of group occupancy with electric data progressing will
8:07 pm
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 heard from the rest of the stakeholder community why did we write such a broad exemption.
8:08 pm
>> 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 think there is a section between data progressing and a processing central we have to define is it so this is not end
8:09 pm
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 - should we consider the impact of on buildings that will be required to install that when other buildings will ultimate
8:10 pm
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 department on will provide living roofs as a compliance option so the developer will have more fleblthd how a taller
8:11 pm
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 building a of story was completed given the construction timeline will be relatively aware but a living -
8:12 pm
>> 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 (calling names). >> good afternoon. my name is a jeanine carter the co-founder of
8:13 pm
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 greening and decategorization of the supply when the panels are generating 2rb89 they serve the trouble load of the building so
8:14 pm
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 generation thank you, thank you. >> next speaker >> good afternoon my name is brendon the director of the u.s.

8:21 pm
a development and in 2004, it was certified and the 2005 it was adopted also in 2005 the rincon hill plan was adopted and in 2012, the transit center plan was adopted the gray area in the middle of the slide is the transbay plan area it is boundary is following blighted conditions within the area at the heart of redevelopment is the transbay transit center it is gifted into 3 zones one by the controls and design guidelines to the plan and zone one ocii has the land use jurisdiction two is by the planning code and the - the larger rectangle area in red
8:22 pm
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 and 912 affordable unit and about to begin construction and bloke 5 is office space under
8:23 pm
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 regarding the proposed block one project the developers is proposing a health from three to
8:24 pm
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 hundred height limit the far right hand is 73 more units with the 44 more units will be bmr
8:25 pm
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 when the transbay redevelopment area was adopted in 2005 some amendments were adopted as part of this effort
8:26 pm
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 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
8:27 pm
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 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
8:28 pm
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) please come on up and speak at this time. >> good afternoon madam chair and supervisors

9:05 pm
education citywide plan it is a time to acknowledge the value of young children and those that educate the youngest learners but investing in the early care and education is an investment in families and the city research shows providing quality early care and education has a tremendous impact on the growth and impact of children but the families stability and the economy from our accountability of public dollars addressing when children are most rapidly developing has the greatest return in investments it provides for economic sustainability as families are able to return to work and we must recognize that majority of d.c. workforce are women and
9:06 pm
women of color from an entity lens they must be able to take care of their families with the passage of prop c in 2014 the children's initiative san francisco commits 25 years of investments and career with the alignment of stronger systems and collaboration to better provide for san francisco families an early care and education was directed to expand the scope if preschool to early education meaning zero to 4 yesterday the board do board honors an early care education to dedicate her professional career in dedicating the most vulnerable children and families today, i call this hearing during the week of young child
9:07 pm
for the upper sunnydale of the office of early care and education for zero to 5 years old the recommendations in how we can improve and build on the investment it create a better system to serve all the youngest children and on top of that it's another reason why a good week barb our current director of office of education who has provided the leadership that it takes to make all this happen happens to be the last week on her job we'll be sad i want to say that now to the public i will be i think the public will be sad that we will no longer have her leadership after this week but today is about this hearing barbara carson.
9:08 pm
>> thank you supervisor yee and supervisor farrell and supervisor tang for allowing us to present the plan as you may know we're required to submit this plan per prop k i'll be prefrnt a high-level of review with the enforced realms from the advisory committee the full plan was databases will be valuable in 4 weeks give you a little bit of background this is a planning process that everyone participated in enthusiastically and took seriously city staff. >> wonderful advisory committee, the community in many formats or forums participated in many meetings over the past year as a highlight our cap meets 4 times and year and met 14 times since last april i want to say there are too big tossing
9:09 pm
everyone took it as an opportunity to step back and look at it what we have done in san francisco and figure out how to take it to scale and stop thinking incremental and recognize the excellence that happens in programs like the fee wamgz and the preschool for all it is nationally recognized and how those lessons can be applied i think you'll hear testimony supporting the bigger picture and there will be a lot of information coming over the next several months an analysis that will be helpful to you as you go through the budget process he'll launch into the recommendations the first thing to emphasize we have had many, many meetings office staff and other staffs
9:10 pm
and met with dcyf the first development of the recommendations we set to the advisory committee and as those recommendations were enforced we brought those back for feedback and made significant changes to the plans based on some of the feedback in resulting in the recommendations cat has endorsed the recommendations so our first set of recommendations around the system that supervisor yee into custody prop c directions us to look at broadly of the services for the zero to 5 years old in the city the first to build a system that enables all families with kids zero to 5 with the services to develop mechanisms to achieve continuous continuity of care for zero to 5 years old this night families came out so strongly on over the past year
9:11 pm
our federal and state subsidy programs to create clips where families fell avenue eligibility and with community and families feel strongly we need to work with the city funds to bridge the gaps to kids have a could a have continuous eligibility it is data driven and improved observing outcome next slide we're required by prop k to look at racial entity and diversity el cap wanted to go a high-level in feeling the kindergarten readiness it the measure to look across all income and racial groups so the recommendation is that the city adopt one kindergarten readiness standard that measures the kindergarten readiness that's the kindergarten form
9:12 pm
analyzed by the school district several times we will be moving to do that on a regular basis to measure not only in literacy and math but motorist development and social and mediation development we'll targeted populations that in the past have shown kindergarten readiness is a challenge nothing new to the board you've heard this in many testimonies over the time certainly i've been working in the city but in particular african-american children, latino children, dual language learners and children with disabilities having produceable u trouble meeting did readiness standard we can do better those are the same groups of kids we are targeting in hope
9:13 pm
sf and starting to measure our folks in this area qualify improvement recommendations you, i may have heard from testimony of first 5 over the past couple of years we're implementing here in san francisco something called a rating improvement system that was mandate as part of race to the top early challenge guatemala if so the direction the federal government is moving in to measure quality and seeking to increase the flexibility and use it as a way to measure quality across the board and make sure that we're offering resources to meet a minimum standard the task force feels strongly we require all providers for the district of columbia services meet an agreed on standard in other words, to qualify and we'll offer researchers to make sure they get there the family engagement this is
9:14 pm
the place we worked with the families in the communities we have broths in the recommendations in this area based on the feedback we got from families in particular i'd like to highlight the second well the first item including the families are equal partners but the gaps and reflect that value at the program level and our system level in all our oversight groups and to insure the access to make sure that families who want this program get them and make sure that the families get resources and referrals to make sure and was move forward with the systems we're incorporating family engagement there and that we have families involved with the decision making pursue so, now i'll move to an area which you heard a lot about i'm sure the was this and education staff in san francisco we started to do
9:15 pm
analysis looking at the gaps in was this and in the gaps in terms of the cost of quality this slide shows you the wage of a current education teacher $35,000 plus per year and what b.a. level teachers at the school district k through 8 through k through 12 is $46,000 plus if you are a school district and teaching in an early child you do better than 35 but not 44 those are the was this we're paying in san francisco to our teachers that are taking care of the youngest kids and expecting them to do even more as we measure our results more regularly as time goes on a gap we need to move towards our
9:16 pm
first recommendation in the office of economic workforce development to develop strategies to support encyclopedias pair did i with the k through 8 staff we can't do it over submitted i've talked with the mayor we need to look at we works and what we can leverage better at the state and federal level then begin to move our teachers to live and work in san francisco the second set of recommendations has to do with with developing a system we have a lot of components that address professional development in san francisco we've got a higher ed component and training and technical assistants want to move toward developing a system that addresses the needs of workforce professionals in particular these who are
9:17 pm
involved in providing caregiver exempt care that is give by families and friends and is paid for by public dollars we'll to start to address many instances the next category of care and address the needs of those providers as well as doing more in terms of system building for the school staff and caregiver providers moving to the next slide we've engaged in a pretty comprehensive analysis in the past year one of the things inch set out to do two years ago to look at what we have in the city in terms of revenue how much is it federal and state and how much is local which of the local programs are getting which providers closer to the cost of the providing care this slide with one example of
9:18 pm
the analysis that we did as you can see we talked earlier about moving towards the minimum level of quality so if you look at the red line on this slide this indicates the total per child annual expense for tier 3 the middle of the quality improvement system a 5 point system and that's the cost to get and infant provider to tier 3 and as you can see we don't have any providers we're making at this point in time so we have significant gaps probably the largest gap with the programs that are contracted our title 5 programs that are serving the total population of the kids didn't we have sixth gaps and how we can move towards addressing those in the next up to this point in time our recommendation in this area is not only to increase the resources you see on the left that is obviously necessary
9:19 pm
but also restructuring the system we have now to make it simple letter and easier for families to use and determine the funding based on the cost of providing qualify as defined in the system measuring the system with the q r s system driving the investments and organizing the funding to direct services and system supports we now have a number of programs we can give you more information on that if you like to be briefed in the future on the fiscal analysis and streamline the reporting requirements and that we want to integrate all of the systems and link those supports to the quality rating that we mentioned earlier so that's it for our recommendations this plan really, really represents moving to the next level and taking the good experience we have here in san
9:20 pm
francisco and with our preschool for all program our c was this program and taking it to a point all kids zero to 5 assess the quality we have a office of economic workforce development crisis in the ac a area one of the things i've done every weekday i look at craigslist for the early education countless positions open all the time i'm sure you'll hear today staff cannot afford to work and commute and certainly live in san francisco with the was this we're paying and not to the point where we can provide quality across the board this is a bicyclist will take a period of time this is the direction our community and our city staff and folks would like to go in. >> thank you very much ms.
9:21 pm
carson. >> it is interesting our presentation of strategies very different from what we usually hear in terms of departments coming in and talking about their budgets or strategies just based on the lack of service and how much we need to do what kind of services we should provide and so forth this is unusual because your strategy talks about the people that provide the services and as you may know the services would be the people that provide it here in this case can you say a little bit more about from your point of view why this report has so much emphasis on the people that provide the services. >> well, i mean other than
9:22 pm
kevin about who takes care of of our children in the city a general proposition a lot of research that links qualify to was this and in addition to that you can see from our fiscal analysis that research aside we're not getting to the point we're passerby providers to provide quality and those we have lots of tools developed over the last 10 or 15 years that measure the cost of quality and make sure we do that analysis careful or carefully but the compensation for staff is tied to research for the past 20 years to quality in terms of the wage gave him as well as elated big gap to get folks who were working with the population of kids we're seeing last week to target it a no brainier.
9:23 pm
>> part of my objections and you can confirm is that we know today, the value- we know the education from the teachers is very, very important most of us in the room don't know wasn't valuable 10 or 15 years ago. >> once upon a time, early education was roanoke county upon definitely as 70 years ago that's when i started this and to change the culture of how we think about that has taken several decades and the fact that was predominantly and still
9:24 pm
predominantly provided by a woman so the salaries you know as we know when a woman has dominated a fee is a lot less so, i mean are there ways to overcome this at this point in time we started so way behind the fees were way behind and it is hard to move the needle what can we do in san francisco nationally they're looking at san francisco as a model what can we do to bridge that dangerous weapon. >> i mean obviously the need for additional funding we're indicating in the plan we want to look at strategies to get there what we know that san francisco has taken the lead with the fee was this and tied
9:25 pm
that program to quality performers but the cost of living the sea wamgz is no longer working to bring people closer to parody it is a band-aid i don't want to say that money is the only answer we have to looking our structuring program but need to program that will get us there in a certain amount of years without that we're never getting to the quality for zero to 5 years old i mean we've done a great job with the po a and not providing the resources to the told her providers to get to the basic level of quality it will take a lot of people strategize i know we have a lot of energy in our
9:26 pm
community to come up with new approaches but need to begin that work. >> thank you very much and again, i'm sad your this is your last week. >> i've been back and forth supervisor yee and love to come back and it's been a privilege to be if this position thank you very much. >> colleagues do you have any questions. >> yeah. gave her a hand. >> (clapping.) any other questions. >> supervisor tang i want to say thank you for your service and especially in bringing this new office during that incredibly e exceptionally important time i want to thank you pubically.

9:29 pm
program multiple agencies with roles and responsibilities and finally very federal and state requirements the planning office little early care and education to organize it both is a common system envision for our young system is visual and inspiring work we need to do together who two elements are important for the roll you have and the committee to think about supporting the work going forward the first i'll highlight the no cost proposition i think the efficiency of our system and leveraging is critical the financing reforms that ms. carlson put forward are critical we've mirrored a chaotic and disruptive and dysfunctional education for low income families we can streamline and reorganize
9:30 pm
the local investments you all steward and make on behalf of the taxpayers to minimize the paperwork and make sure the time and resources are focused on the workers that is critical i didn't realize the time limits were briefly it is time to do right by the he recalls educators more than a $20,000 different and the pay for a year later a 4 years old teach will be paid $50,000 and next it 55 and not to recognize the brain development or to live in san francisco we look forward to our investment in early education to make sure the educators just pay for this important work with our children. >> thank you. >> good morning supervisors
9:31 pm

9:32 pm
lift all the aspects of early childhood from zero to 5 as we care for the teachers wear caring for the parents and teachers it's been amazingly encouraged by the work that the occ has done working in collaboration with the childcare centers and fcc we've seen bodies of the picture and work together to move forward thank you very much. >> thank you. >> hi, i'm sandy black man the executive director of children's council and actually, the current chair the children's advisory committee and representative on the advisory committee for the office every early care and education it's been a huge privilege to serve in those roles

9:34 pm
tremendous investment in early care and education there is more we feed to do in order to address the inqualities of opportunities for the children 2, 3, 4 city there is definitely a need to restructure the system i also urge us to invest more in this to enable us to get to the vision of quality care and education thank you very much. >> thank you. good morning candice wong occ c pack and our council i wholeheartedly support this plan i think the opportunity for this city to really lay the foundation and around quality for occ i think this is important that our focus area is around how we support the quality in our teachers as a
9:35 pm
priority i think having this mechanism and taking a system wide approach will be key to laying the underground for the city to be model for the nation as well as opportunities for us to draw down federal and state resources this is a great plan i think there's more to do and continue to do that work through the various planning tables we have in the city i think that is important that we lay this plan out it will set a solid foundation for our work and moving forward i think there is opportunities for us to also continue to look at as we support quality and preschool we look at the some of the other gaps within the city in terms of infants and toddlers 80 percent of toddlers we need to continue to focus on the work of the area more work to come and look
9:36 pm

9:37 pm
for keeping the importance of early childhood education issue on the forefront of this city's attention how fortunate to say a supervisor like supervisor yee who seize the connection between the early which would care and education for the youth children and the economic and quality of life for everyone in the city if not for our supervisors like supervisor yee and all our supervisors and all our support we've had much cared for to the extent stent those who care for children will be in terrible despair i'm ms. kennedy's i'm the director of the childcare in san francisco there are over seven hundred chiropractors
9:38 pm
teaching the youth children everyday we're particularly pleased to see in the plans ms. carlson present a commitment to a verifiable approach the incentives 80 percent of the brain occurs in the first 3 years and so this is a time we should pay attention to the families childcare supports this plan it is the result of a thoughtful and deliverability deliberate fact basis and with anticipation from those who worked with the children and families everyday i thank you, very much. >> thank you, ms. kennedy. >> good morning, supervisors and staff my name is sarah i coordinate the san francisco chiropractors provider and appreciate being part of listening to this as a develops with the occ plan and i'm happy

9:40 pm
pay equality is and resources are they're important because they effect the reality of the system we're building and the ability to do the service we he had on a realize we're not talking about when we're talking about early education not rocket science but human development we feed to fund it and needed to make it a center of human work in building the city i thank you for the leadership that you will take in forwarding this plan thank you. >> good morning, supervisors. i'm mr. workers' comp with the san francisco representing the executive director who couldn't be here i want to voice our strong support for the plan and the process that went into this plan i think barbara carlson should be commend for bringing the voices and creating a plan that
9:41 pm
unifies people around a common vision for standing expanding the opportunity and making sure the quality of the education is high supporting the office of economic workforce development that is really the foundation of that endeavor and also you know expanding the scope of the city's responsibility in serving children age zero to 4 i think there is a lot of work ahead that is represented in the plan and funding will be 90 no small part of the history in san francisco has been very good the people of san francisco and this board have been generous with children you know starting you know as early as the children's fund the public enrichment fund most recently, the prop c the board recently accident around
9:42 pm
paid family leave is commendable that sets a clear path for what we need to do going forward so i'm optimistically that the people will come together to fund the important work of this plan thank you. >> other people that want to make public comment on this item line up. >> i'm lisa lee with the development felt quality of the system a component of this plan moving forward in the city we're here to endorse that plan fully it is the first time our community came forward to say let's not use public dollars unless it assures a positive experience for all children it is going to be a big lift for our city to do this because we
9:43 pm
fund programs to help parents but we need to fund programs to help children and make that list we ought to offer our childcare a good model so they can be there for every child and make sure our quality rating and improvements make sense we don't coaching and training for teachers jr. and they leave us we start at square one it is a poor investment unless we keep our teachers in the city and finally i'd like to applaud our community for the work it's done we are finally saying that every child deserves the same learning standard we've had like a zillion standards in san francisco we're saying infant to
9:44 pm

just as compassionate and supervisor farrell has young children and understand we'll have a lot of support on the board to try to move this some of those strategies forward we can't just as a lot of times we hear items here about things that happen and how we should not - how we can deal with that as a happens here's an opportunity i always said if we do those types of things we wouldn't have to have the issues that after the fact that till when something happens whether criminal activities or people failing i think what this does is say if we put the resources up front we're going to save a lot of money in the back end so
9:48 pm
thank you very much for coming out today and i'd like to go ahead and recommend we table this and file this item. >> okay motion motion by supervisor yee to file item no. 7 we'll take that without objection. thank you, everyone already the next hearing sporntsz by supervisor mar we'll have a 5 minute recess and reconvene inminutes. >> okay. everybody if we could take are seats we're coming from a recess want to recognize supervisor mar that is now phil in for supervisor tang on the subcommittee with that madam clerk item 8. >> hearing to representative

9:50 pm
also want to talk about the adequate mall nutrition effects our children and seniors are more enlikely to develop dementia and alzheimer's and effects our security with mental illness and premature institution of homelessness people older or 0 people with disabilities for example, all increasing food security is a positive effort within our city over the past two years and supports our local competent for a strong san francisco and insures a happier and self-sufficient families in the city from the report done by the food security task force we know that one in four san franciscans that's over 2 had side thousand people in the neighborhoods and the communities are at risk of food enshutter or hunger going
9:51 pm
to sleep without enough to eat for example, or lacking access to affordable food so food and security exists across all neighborhoods in the city i think the food security task force amazing documentation of district by district and programs and work shows this in every single neighborhood for example, in the responding we're grappling with seniors and people with disabilities that are isolated it can't get enough food and nutrition we're looking at children with families it can't get it as well, it stretches across the districts at the initial hearing in november of 2013 we were presented with data think envelopes of levels of nutrition programs across the city and see high pirate recommendations from
9:52 pm
