2:11 pm
panels. this is a first step in the future for the city to adopt this requirement. the other part of the legislation is that we initially intended to combine the 2 pieces of legislation and for a variety of reasons, we split it into two. this particular legislation will allow the solar rooftop requirements to allow for a green roof instead. the solar roof requirement requires that 15% be covered by solar panels. this legislation allows that instead of the solar panels, that 30% of the rooftop can be covered with a green roof. we expect that many of the developers will have a combination of solar and green roof tops. green roof tops are an in
2:12 pm
incredibly important piece of viable sustainment in the future in san francisco. using rooftop space to have more greenery will have many benefits. it will help clean the air and absorb carbon and in addition green roof tops absorbs storm water in order to reduce the amount of storm water run off for the combined sewer systems and solar increase the energy efficiency in buildings. we worked closely with the department of the environment and the planning department on this legislation as well as other stakeholders including spur and i like forward to moving this legislation forward. i want to thank my office for working on this and in particular on this power and the rest i submit. >> thank you.
2:13 pm
supervisor yee? >>supervisor norman yee: i just want to say some good news since we met the last time that i'm now a first time grandparent of a granddaughter born august 18th. [ applause ] the rest i submit. >> thank you, supervisor yee, supervisor avalos? >> submit. >> supervisor campos. >>supervisor david campos: i have a bill senate bill 489 to prevent properties in detention facilities that require them all to
2:14 pm
provide human rights. since 2003, more than 100 people have died in immigration detention here in the united states. many of these deaths were caused by a lack of medical care, including a failure to adhere to basic detention standards. privatization is driving over in -- incarceration to maximize their profits. 72% of beds in the u.s. are operated by private business companies. local lock ups where facilities are incentivized to fill beds are written into contracts including here in california. heavy lobbying in california by private corporation such as cca have increased
2:15 pm
this detention and throughout the country. this bill will show those more accountable and legal standards for immigrants that are suffering under these conditions. this bill 1289 will make california the first state in the country to create enforceable standards related to immigration in detention facilities. sb 89 and lgbt rights and other arenas. when it comes to lgbtq detention they are cast to the side. they are subject to the same abuses as other immigrants and higher rates of solitary confinement and sexual
2:16 pm
abuse. this provides additional protections for the members of the lgbtq facilities. 1289 will be able to protect those who are regularly submitted to this type of treatment and transgender detainees. such practices affect mental health and other traumas. i ask you to support this bill. i would like to thank avalos, mar, cohen for your support. the second item. i would like to remember gloria best. she was born in detroit,
2:17 pm
michigan, september 6, 1927. she has three brothers, two sisters, three children as well. allen, dana, paul and two grandchildren. jerald and doreen. gloria loved going to church and dancing and arts. she worked as a medical assistant and raised her three sons. she was crowned in 1951. sadly she developed lung cancer a few years ago and passed away friday august 12th. she was a community leader who dedicated so much time to the holly courts community and served for many many years. she always had a smile
2:18 pm
on her face and a biggest heart for her neighbors. she always attended the meetings until she was no longer physically able to. her presence will be missed by that community especially by residents of the council team and our committee in holly ports. her memorial is wednesday at 5151 court land avenue. rest in peace gloria. lastly, in memoriam a legendary artist from mexico, an icon really of mexican culture. juan gabriel. he passed away a few days ago. he was born alberto
2:19 pm
aguilera in michoacan. his mother was committed to a hospital and unable to support her family, she placed juan gabriel in a home when he was 5. he met juan contreras, a deaf musician who played in a band. he chose the stage name in honor of both his father and mr. contreras. juan gabriel said the pain of his childhood was through his music. i think it's hard to explain to people who don't know who juan gabriel was. how in a country that is so macho and has very typical views
2:20 pm
of what it means to be male, straight, to be a man and what it means to be human, that in that country, someone as flamboyant who was essentially as gay as you got would become a national hero. and even though he never technically came out, through his his work in a very subversive way. he challenged our notions of sexuality, masculinity and femininity and to really educate an entire country. what is remarkable about juan gabriel is you see in a family generations that have been impacted by him. even though he was a mexican artist, his influence went beyond mexico and it's safe to say that the entire spanish speaking world has been mourning his loss. i have
2:21 pm
had the pleasure and honor of seeing juan gabriel in concert. i could never understand how, and i think as a gay man, i can say this word. one of the biggest queens that i have seen have had the following of some of the most macho tough guys around. that was really the artistry, the humanity and the unique nature that juan gabriel was about. i know that a lot has been said about him, but as a gay man and as a latino gay man, i especially want to thank him for making it possible for so many of us to actually be accepted in a culture that at times seemed apprehensive about sexuality and certainly questioned
2:22 pm
whether or not you could be a man and still be effeminate and flamboyant. juan gabriel was an example at how at the end of the day, the connection that we as humans have with one another and the ability to relate to one's experiences really transcends our own biases and stereotypes. with that i want to do an in memoriam to juan gabriel for when he meant in mexico and music throughout the world and art throughout the world. may he rest in peace. >> thank you, supervisor campos. supervisor cohen? supervisor farrell, supervisor kim, supervisor mar? >>supervisor eric mar: thank you, i
2:23 pm
want to congratulate the new grandpa, norman yee. congratulations. coming up this sunday is the annual 5k run by kaiser permanente. sunday september 11th from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.. it's in the beautiful mountain lake park that's been upgraded thanks to neighbors. they run along the sea cliff to the edge of the richmond to linkin park. please join us. it raises money for richmond community based organizations like ymca. it's fun. many people walk it as well with family. enjoy one of the most beautiful places on earth in san francisco. also jog in the fog.com. i want to give a special
2:24 pm
shout out to christy, and the staff from ymca and many of us putting the effort into building this community in richmond. >> and i want to thank supervisor wiener and peskin for championing this issue of other periods on this board. these management plans are critical in ensuring that large special events for example the outside lands and the upcoming bluegrass festival don't create unpleasant traffic jambs and delays for residents in the district around the park. in march of 2015, this board passed a similar resolution to adopt
2:25 pm
the commuter shuttle operators. san francisco parks and recreation has in it's application process for a transit management plan. the mass transit vehicles have a significant effect provided that operational cost and permitting be enforced and monitoring the events are put in place. transportation plans that shuttles must not adversely affect transportation. shuttles that have participated to and from large events will likely result in the disruption of ordered mass public transit and prevent rider access to mta vehicles because there is a likelihood of a disruption of a labor
2:26 pm
dispute involving a private shuttle service as is providing for labor harmony with respect to their shuttle amenities. the goal is to prevent unnecessary disruption. i'm urging this resolution to speculate the process in requirement of labor harmony conditions with respect to the shuttle providers and completion of the application process to where an applicant can ensure labor harmony to minimize public transit. it also urges the recreation and parks department to label it broadly so it's not affected by the method of labor harmony. i urge your support. the rest i will submit. >> thank you, supervisor mar. supervisor pes kin?
2:27 pm
>>supervisor aaron peskin: thank you. today i'm submitting a resolution to provide for earthquake relief to communities of italy in the wake of the devastating earthquake in central italy that took almost 300 lives. as a city that is situated on the san andreas fault, we know the outpouring that we received from all over the world, we have the history of coming to the aid in cities around the world in 1991 and in 2001 where we appropriated funds for earthquake relief. what comes around, goes around. today, i'm introducing a supplemental ordinance for the amount of $100,000 for earthquake relief to be vetted out by experts of the department of
2:28 pm
emergency management. i know we have a representative from the italian consulate today. i would like to acknowledge him for his work and his colleagues work in acting quickly in organizing relief efforts here in san francisco and around the world. i ask for your support for this appropriation and please help spread the work about the on going relief efforts that are happening in san francisco. i specifically want to acknowledge those who put together in the italian athletics club which was very well attended where i was asked to identify how our city could help in the relief efforts and this is my answer to that. speaking of earthquakes and seismic safety, i think we are all aware of the revelations in regard to the building tower and asking
2:29 pm
for seismic fitting in all the zones. the city has rezoned city for height and death -- depth and would like to know about the city requirements and would like to have everything done to the highest of building standards. finally i would like to adjourn this meeting in the memory of three individuals. first one of san francisco's characters warren hinnkle, his memorial service was last week. it was a vivid reminder of the indelible mark he left on our city. he was a raucous and flamboyant editor and left a powerful voice in
2:30 pm
the 1960s and later champion the voice of the investigative and satirical journalism. he was 77 years old and survived by his daughters hilary and pia. i would like to also adjourn this meeting in the memory of delia, a great philanthropist and involved in many san francisco causes. and finally, a nun, who spent decades organizing support for refugees as well as organizing protest against the united states military training center for latin american military leaders and the rest i will submit. >> thank you. madam president, no other supervisors on the roster.
2:31 pm
>> thank you, add my name to the warren hinnkle in memoriam. >> can we do the in memoriam for warren hinnkle on behalf of the entire board? >> so moved. >> without objection, we will adjourn on behalf of warren hinnkle. with that, this brings us past 2:30. that brings us to commendations. i'm happy to present the first commendation. we have a special guest of the san francisco's team. the san francisco giants, the president and ceo larry baird is here today along with other members of the giants for this special presentation. i'm going to
2:32 pm
ask mr. behr to come up along with the special director and counsel for the giants, jack behr along with the government relations manager. thank you all for being here. now, we are not here to present the san francisco giants with an award because they continue to win world series, we are here to present them with an award because of the work that they do for the community on occasion of the san francisco giants named humanitarian awards for san francisco. the board and county of san francisco extends its highest commendation in san francisco to the giants for a decade of community outreach including those through the junior giants program. today, the san francisco giants as
2:33 pm
we all know, they are an integral part of an institution in the city arriving here in 1958. an mlb baseball team has the opportunity to be an informative voice to create improve human life across the city. it established the non-profit giants community fund in 1991. the giants community fund collaborates with san francisco giants in the use of baseball as a form to support under served youth and their families to promote a health life. this is a great baseball program with 25,000 participants statewide and over 1300 of them in san francisco. the flagship program of the giants
2:34 pm
community fund, called the junior giants, was created as a free non-competitive program for under served girls and boys and girls ages 5-18 to specifically help in the cycle of violence and in impoverished areas in the city. while baseball participation has increased since 2008, has increased 52% in participation since that time. that is truly amazing. the junior giants program offers a chance to learn the basics of baseball while discovering the importance of self-esteem and respect and educating and which includes confidence, integrity, leadership and teamwork.
2:35 pm
in incorporating fundamental life -- lessons and removing bullying. the program is implemented thanks in partnership to the bayview hunters point ymca, the mission ymca and the san francisco recreation and parks department as well as many other community organizations. giants, posey serves as a junior giants commissioner and the other giants players alumni and front office staff contribute to the success of the program. it is because of this extraordinary success of the community fund and the reach of the junior giants that the san francisco giants was named the recipient of the 2015 commissioner's award for a
2:36 pm
philanthropic for manford jr.. this program was recognized once again this year when the san francisco earned the 2016 sports man of the year award presented by espn that honors legends, teams, individuals and those that use the power of sport to make an impact on communities. it was an amazing honor. we are so fortunate to have not just an amazing team, but amazing folks who care about doing what's necessary to give back to the community. so on behalf of the city and county of san francisco and the board of supervisors, we commend the san francisco giants for its work in this regard. thank you very much for being here today. [ applause ]
2:37 pm
>> thank you very much, president breed. i would like to thank president breed and the board. it's a humble and honor to receive your commendation and the humanitarian award. it really is a testimony to the people that we have as giants. i think many of you have worked with them. these three wonderful folks on the frontline. peterson, as mentioned the head of our foundation, roscoe maps, who does a lot of work for us in the community, we have jack behr who handles the general counsel and works with our board and city hall. i think that one of the things that really stands out to us in today's world and it's a world that
2:38 pm
has a lot of challenges to be sure. is that sports has a unique role and opportunity to inspire and in communities. it's a spirit of gathering in town square, a community center. there are numerous occasions where people come to our ballpark not just to celebrate games or championships but also to support for aids epidemics, the human tragedies and to honor tens of thousands of kids that come to many games with the junior giants. these are kids from low income neighborhoods. they have experienced
2:39 pm
not just the joy of baseball but life -- lessons of growing up in a challenging environment. when i think about all the heart wrenching events that occurred in our country and in san francisco, that we as an industry have the responsibility to step beyond our comfort zone and to do more than the games, but ask the question, how can we help, how can we unite communities? i'm very proud of the giants who are constantly asking questions. we ask that you come with whatever needs you have so that we can help the community. thank you very much. [ applause ]
2:40 pm

2:45 pm
of this government. in my retirement, i will continue to be a volunteer to serve this community, not only with city guides and rebuilding together but involved in other activities every time i turn around. i do have to say it was a little hard act to follow the san francisco giants, but i am definitely honored and humbled by your recognition of my service to the city. thank you again and i will continue to help this community as much as i can.

2:48 pm
is the art of appearing candid. >> it was reported in june that this question was asked by supervisor cohen. i would like to take this opportunity to answer the supervisor's question sharing it with all members of this board. >> sometimes when dealing with city representatives and they are antagonistic condescending and over all it is necessary to reply in kind. this including five board of supervisors, it is the
2:49 pm
public's right to access documents which is completely critical. president breed, supervisors farrell and mar don't give a damn about your rights under the law. if you make a public records request, they will not apply. when you file a complaint, they won't reply to the task force. they won't show up to the hearing. the only time they show up when they go to the ethics commission. >> next speaker, please. public speaker: our people

2:52 pm
>> you know what i'm thinking? i wish i could find a way where i could give this book into the hands of everybody in the united states. that's what i'm thinking. and honestly, roger stone is the answer to my prayer. roger stone has known donald trump for 40 plus years. he's the guy that actually got him to run for president. you say how is he the answer to my prayers? for years i have been holding up a sign on street corners asking the public to google the interview with senator john decamp. the franklin cover up has been
2:53 pm
quoted four times in chapter 27. praise god, thank you, lord jesus. when you pray, shut the door and pray to thy father. i have been selling this book in salas. we have a situation here where basically he's going to indict the four presidents. i pray that you protect donald trump and i pray that you make him the next president. lord, i pray that
2:54 pm
the christians will get out and preach the gospel. >> next speaker, please. public speaker: my name is charles kessler. i live in supervisor kim's district. over the weekend i had a domestic violence issue. i called 911 in the afternoon. where i had an individual holding a knife to my neck. on my right and left-hand i have visible wounds from pulling the knife from the individual. no officer responded to this. i walked to the police station where i verbally assaulted the officer where i found out that only 4 were assigned to the beat. ms. breed, i called your
2:55 pm
office. i have spoken to her numerously. i want to know why the officers are being transferred out of the station? i can't give you names because the officers are afraid for retaliation. i have gone to the police commissioner and the police union and how you can over ride their contract amazes me. no individual should have to do that. because of this incident and because of this report, i will probably lose my housing. >> thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: hi, good afternoon. my name is kate west. i live in the upper haight. in june i was given a
2:56 pm
notice that my rent was going up from $3105 to $8500. that happened august 6th. some friends pitched in. i got a 3-day to cure for august. i haven't been able to come up with the difference from $3,000 to $8500 for this month. i'm expected to -- and this is unlawful. i have been in my apartment for 22 years. in my neighborhood i have given lots and lots of hours of community service for that time. i help babies at san francisco general intensive care unit. i was in that program. i sat with dying people at
2:57 pm
john hospice for years. in that program, i have given a lot of service because i believe in it. but i don't know how do you justify taking a woman's rent. it's just a railroad plot. it's not a special big deal thing. how do you justify $8500 from $3105. i'm going down. i have no more money to give my attorney and he can't work anymore without money. he can't do anymore bono for me either. i'm terrified. i'm just a woman trying to keep her home. i came here because i want you to see me. >> thank you, mam. next speaker, please. public speaker: thank you,
2:58 pm
president breed and all. my name is christopher dall and i live at 600 howard. still above sea level. your crohn'sey faction has lost consistent supportive members from the mayor to the super kroeney is losing goals. of course painfully reserve the national coalition testimony republican party and complaint they have lost their majority but thought they still deserve to rule. member wiener was loudly shocked and dismayed by
2:59 pm
arithmetic by democracy that he is comfortable with. i speak with charming consortiums of arguments in the bay police accountability measures. the crohn'sey's try to hold sf p.d. liable. the anti-crohn'sey tried to strip him of the powers. in the process, the city were the losers. we the people in general and the police community in particular all deserve to be able to share confidence in a police force that is civil, sustained, professional and prepared.
3:00 pm
but you didn't even come close. we all lost. thank you for your time. >> thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: good afternoon, all ladies and gentlemen. >> mam, please speak into the microphone. thank you. public speaker: i'm here to protest and tell all the supervisors how this law no transparency is deadly. my neighbor doesn't let my contract to finish their work on do their job. it has been holding for almost 3 years since my house was in renovations. most san francisco residential houses are built side by side and attached to each other. if some ill or unreasonable
3:01 pm
neighbor are using this law to prevent people to maintain the other people's property, it's not right. one of the inspector of the department told me there is a chapter 14 on first floor. that is called california building maintaining code. but i can't find any supportive information beyond the department. i'm the property owner. i have the right to maintain my building. i don't have my house to be damaged. please help me to my contractor get this done. i need the painting and
3:02 pm
repair. these are the pieces that are missing. i need to fix it. my neighbor to cross the line. >> ma'am, please use the microphone. >> thank you very much . >> thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: hello, i think you guys all know me. a lot of you do. here is the conundrum real quick that i ran into. it took me a long time to get my ssi money on a card. someone stole my card, right? so i have been trying to recertify my ssi. they are telling me i need to have an address and i tell them i don't have an address. they say without an address i can't get my ssi
3:03 pm
anymore. and without money, how can i get an address? they told me there is nothing i can do. the money is in the account but i can't get it because i don't have an address. so some of the things i would like to say, you always support the fire department because let's see, yeah, can you do a quick thing on here if i put it down. the fire department, they are the guys that take care of the fires. there is one guy outside. nobody gives him a commendation. he was the guy that marches outside. his name is dennis. i like him. he's a good cop. and then i do cartoons. this is my take on kaepernick. i don't know if you saw it. for sports fans, that makes him look kind of skinny. anyway, all of these things i do just running around for
3:04 pm

3:05 pm
thing called "750 bran street lease". they didn't vote to approve this deal which is good for 25 years at a million dollars a year rent and a million dollars of improvements. the minimum term initially is 10 years with 35-year renewels. we have this handout that came to the library commission meeting on august 18th which i would like to show you. well, it needs to be blown up. one of the bullet items say potential space for friends of the library. and then it goes on to say that the lease was approved 2 weeks earlier by the board of supervisors on august 2nd. and that's all we know about the fact until we look at the board of
3:06 pm
supervisors agenda and find out that yes, it was on the agenda august 12th, and presumably passed. this was a sweetheart deal to bailout to friends who your legislative analyst said were facing a major rent increase. what your harvey rose report did not say was something they brought up at the commission. they plan not to only have their executive offices there, they plan to do their book collection and book sales from that location which is not a public library publically open space. i think that's an outrage and i think that you need to know what's going on and so does the public. the library is not telling. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: tom

3:12 pm
possible to give the legal proceeding an opportunity to go forward. as i understand it from the parties, it's going to take actually a long time, several months, for us to have that resolutions and after checking with the clerk of the board, it seems that even though, the appropriate thing would be to continue it for a long period of time, that the longest we can continue at this point is to december 13, 2016, because at that point we'll have a better sense of what the calendar for the board will be beyond that. with that in mind, i move to continue this item open december 13, 2016. and again, i thank my colleagues for their understanding of this very interesting and complicated matter. >> thank you, supervisor, campos. has made a motion to continue this item until december 13, 2016. it was seconded by supervisor peskin. is there any public comment on the continuance? seeing none, public comment is now closed. on the continuance, madam clerk, can you please call the roll. >>clerk: supervisor tang, aye, supervisor wiener, aye, supervisor

comment? thank you both for your presentations. we'll get back with answers to your question. at this time we'll take public comment. if you have public comment please come forward. you have 3 minutes. >> thank you commissioners. [inaudible] i'm president of pacific heights resident association and representing the coalition to save the street lamps of van ness. you may think that you have already dealt with this issue, but there is large community and national interest in them, renewed interest and i wanted to bring to your attention, your march 29, 2011 commission report on projects for future consideration. where the light standards of van ness were being considered-says 95 percent of the
4:34 pm
research was complete, but it hasz disappeared from your list of projects, so we know that last year in 2015, you did address the issue of the street lamps and poles within the civic center historic district. there are 259 street lamps and poles total. there are-i have to do math here. there are only 30 something within the civic center historic district so that leaves 220 that will be destroyed between now and december. yesterday mta approved a contract for phase two that possibly will preclude because of excavation, will preclude the reuse or replacement of these street lamps. we have been told in 2009 dpw engineering
4:35 pm
report, that the poles are not structurally sound and certainly don't look it. they date from 1914. the street lamps are wpa project from 1936 that were erected on the old poles which were moved to commemorate the opening of the golden gate bridge and to bring in the age of automobile rather than or rubber tired transit rather than trolley transit and lead to way to the golden gate bridge. that in san francisco is histortually significant. the opening of golden gate bridge and 101 to northern california. there are 220 something street lamps we request you please reevaluate. we would like to save them or save the character they represent. thank you.
4:36 pm
>> thank you. >> good afternoon commissioners. my name is burn det [inaudible] director of the filipino america development foundation [inaudible] i wanted to first mention that the community center is one of the buildings that are being considered for the civil rights project and it was my father that purchased that building in 1967 and it was the the purchase agreement we had brought this building back into use for the thriving filipino community that i had grown up to know and that may parents-both are no longer around, but their legacy remains very important. i come before you about something very important and very urgent, which related to staff's recommendation to prioritize
4:37 pm
the grand orienta properties. the 3 reasons you got letter is because of the affordable housing piece that is threatened at the time. the hotel is put up for sale. i don't know if it is still on the market, but i believe the temple and the connected housing and the hotel, the grand orienta hotel, a total of 30 rent controlled units are at risk of being lost and there is one tenant, steve, who is back there is being evected right no so that is a urgency. besides that thattimeal was purchased by the filipino masons, the first in the country and we believe that is the only filipino metonic temple in the
4:38 pm
country. thank you very much for your consideration with that. >> thank you. >> can i ask a question? >> why don't we wait. >> good afternoon commissioners. mike bouleer with san francisco heritage. i would just like to echo burn dets testimony. heritage strongly supports adding grand orienta properties to the work program. heritage hasz been working with burna det and community for several years now identifying tangible and intaskable cultural assets in south of market associated with the filipino community and recently as last week these two properties really are at the heart of the pending cultural district, filipino cultural district which is being developed as we speak. heritage hasz offered our assistance in any way including potentially
4:39 pm
through grand funding and identifying other sources of funding to enable the nominations to get started as soon as possible. secondly, i also like to echo the request from previous speaker regarding the van ness street lamps seeking clarification of the current status. they did briefly appear on the landmark work program several years ago and no longer on the work program and of source imminently threatened. thank you very much. >> thank you, any other member of the public wish to comment? if so please come forward. >> good afternoon commissioners. my name is steve [inaudible] a tenant at 10 6 south park, the grand orienta hotel and member of the lodge. i'm not here representing in any capacity the grand orienta or the [inaudible]
4:40 pm
lodge, just here as a citizen. the purchase property of 106 south park was in 1920 when newly arrived filipinos were sent over from the philippines for cheap labor and many of them came to san francisco and they could not find other places to live. somehow they were able to buy the property at 106 south park and for $6 thousand. they sweated and worked hard, this is their pride and joy. they treated of this property-it is great honor for you if you designated this property and to preserve it in their memories and for the history of the filipino community here in san francisco. thank you so much. >> thank you. any other member of the public wish to comment? seeing
4:41 pm
and hearing none, we'll close public comment and commissioner pearlman you had a question for a speaker? >> yes, mrs. [inaudible] can you come up with a second? i had questions about the hotel. i know it is well out of our jurisdiction to talk about rent control, but my understanding-i'm trying to understand how these people are getting evicted and putting this on the landmark program will help or not. it is surprising to me because the policies have changed and evolved in the last number of years because of the housing crisis in the city that knrn could get evicted by a new owner when you have a building with so many units. can you just maybe briefly summarize what is going on? >> the owner can do with what they please . the grand lodge is a
4:42 pm
brotherhood and they meet as a brotherhood in private and make those decisions so with any owner, they can decide to do what they please with their own property. so, they decided to do the eviction process, of course we are fighting the eviction process and that is natural, so this is-this goes against everything we are working for and surpriseed they want to do that. clearly it isn't what the original intention was. you will see a article i had staff copy and distribute to you about the history of this-since 19-in the 1920's this was providing affordable housing. they didn't have namlies or any wives and all they had is they needed a place to be able to
4:43 pm
retire and we need to continue that legacy and this would be a terrible way for that to end. >> thank you. i'm just surprised relative to every story about eviction we read in the papers is most people don't have the right to just evict people so just surprised to hear this. >> please come forward. just speak into the microphone >> i'm the only tenant being evicted. the other tenant are not being evicted. they have not received notices and have to go through a legal process. i am a member and been there for a year. because i'm a member i am prichbologed to stay there but because of my opposition to the sale of the property they decided to evict me. this is retaltory effort so not eviction from
4:44 pm
the tenants per se, it is eviction towards me because i'm not paying rent because i'm a member and they are making me a guest. i have no tenant rights so they are trying to evict me and we are fighting that right now and this is a retaltory effort on their part because i'm standing up against the sale. just wanted to clarify to make sure you didn't think all the tenants-i'm the only one being evicted. >> thank you very much. close public comment and commissioner johnck. >> i read through the staff report and on every page i go yes, yes, yes, yes. i need a little help. having the staff rorg organize our focus. it is helpful to say yes to all these. >> i guess we could add all
4:45 pm
these to the work program and realize the work program may take a long time to complete. what i was going to suggest was that we prioritize the ones that considerable work is already done on so the ones that have most of the production done and made a long way and put those to the top the list and then we then take the remaining ones and prioritize how they meet the priorities for the different properties we want to desinginate and take a sampling of each so we equally look at different categories. i'm not sure there is any reason not to add these to the list unless they are landmarks we have no interest in. potential landmarks we feel won't meet criteria of article 10 or 11. >> let me clarify because i went through to say yes, yes, yes, and said to myself, is this threatened. that was-we have categories, modern
4:46 pm
and that type of thing which we fit things into and that is good, but i guess where i was starting to hone in on is threatened and advocacy. for instance, we had excellent testimony today and letters come in on the grand orienta and that is important too, and san francisco heritage has said things about [inaudible] sanchez, there is advocacy and issue of being threatened i want more clarification on that because that is important to me but also i agree going through-that is fine on your recommendation. i would like clarification on the street lamps >> i can also add a piece to that? >> sure >> the ones where the community is preparing the reports we are very supportive of because that is where a lot of preparation is done. if
4:47 pm
we believe those projects could get a priority that should be considered as well. >> commissioner hyland. >> thank you. to clarify, my understanding and i asked that same question about how much staff time do each of these designations take relative to staff initiated commission initiated community initiated and it seems they take considerable amount of staff time regardless. >> commissioner matsuda. >> i just want to add when we start to make the priorities we definitely get staff input because you are much more aware and have i think more of a direct access to what communities are expressing to you so i want to make sure that is clear in our decision making because i don't think we want to delete any of the programs from our
4:48 pm
list. i know what we heard today there are some projects that need to rise to the top and we want to make sure we address them. >> we can help you do that. maybe i'll start with commissioners johncks question. i tried to identify the ones that are threatened for you, starting maybe page 31, the order of the forester that was recently put on the market. that is how we became aware it wasn't already a landmark. that is on the market and felt that was probably threatened with the high temple leaving. the l rea theater i would consider threatened but do have a designation at the board of supervisors for that one. um, the-in some ways maybe the alcoa build wg the project going on. >> what page is that? >> and of course the properties
4:49 pm
bern dt mentioned >> 534. >> could you describe what is happening on the alcoa building? it is a big build{hard to iage man it is threatened >> tim fry, i don't know the particulars of the project but there is a stlsh remodeling proposed especially the ground floor level. we certainly can bring more information. >> i have seen a little of the [inaudible] don't know the full scopef work, i'm not the planner working on it but think there was a [inaudible] to inclose the lobbying maybe in glass lobby that would be enclosed and making alterations-there is the building and there is the plaza and there are stairs going down, which are on the garage going to the sidewalk so i think the idea is to punch holes in the wall that concrete wall at the sidewalk level. i feel like there is something
4:50 pm
else. i think to widen the stairs, altering the approach. >> [inaudible] >> commissioners if it is helpful to start maybe on page 15 or 14, congregation emalual building, the designation report is substantially complete. >> 14. >> the wul ski house we have a summer intern working on the designation now. the [inaudible] the current owners are preparing the designation report at their own cost and so that likely doesn't have to be prioritized. taylors union pacific is largely completed as well by staff. right now we are work wg them, the sailors union about their proposal to improve
4:51 pm
the site or build on the portion of the lot that is not developed. peace bugoata is largely complete as well and that is largely a community coordination. sunshine school, roosevelt high school and [inaudible] all completed by outside consultants. the japan town ywca is propose frd the national register nomination under under represented communities grant and will be prepared by a outside consultant we will acquire hopefully this fall and can easily be converted to a landmark designation report. the mothers building you received updates from mr. rothman and they are on a path but the designation there is largely complete too. woodward street we are
4:52 pm
waiting to hear back from the community on how they want to proceed with that, so i until we hear from them not sure where we would put them on the schedule. mary brown boulevard track will be ready this fall. new era hall is complete. the owner was having some legal issues in terms of property line issuewise the adjacent neighbor and understand those have been resolved. we didn't get a sense they were overwellmingly in support of designation but you have the report if the commission would like to act on it we can do that and reengage the owner or decide it is low priority and save it for another day. >> on the [inaudible] hall, i assume it is the property on the right hand side? >> correct, the old church
4:53 pm
>> is the property on the left on church and market, is that already a landmark? >> it is not >> is that identified? >> it is identified as a resource in the upper market survey but if there is anything on the list you think should be considered as well we can do that. the sky line building [inaudible] >> as we'll see in future hearings soon future hearings, the 85 foot rezoning height limits along market street [inaudible] noe and this property- >> good point >> impacted potentially by both of these properties. >> starting again on page 22, i can never pronounce this. king mong [inaudible] thank you. is also
4:54 pm
being proposed for designation and through the-is this a national register? >> no, japan town y. >> japan town y so this is one maybe to consider prioritizing. the trade school- >> there isn't really work done at all? >> correct. and same for trade school and marine firemans union building, we had a initial meeting with the owners and that is about it. planters hotel would be a relatively quick designation for staff to put together but have done very little work on that as well. in terms of the residential properties at the end, all most no work is completed there. not sure where these fit in your list of priorities. and then lastly, the boat house building was tabled bithe commission because the commission felt you could address it once the full district came
4:55 pm
forward and know the district has been-as quee know the district has been tabled now. >> golden gate park >> we have the landmark designation complete for stowic house. the renovation is complete so if the commission felt that was worthy of just moving forward we can certainly do that. again, that is one where it is sort of just sitting there. >> the stand theater >> we had a discussion with the owner about that and they haven't reengaged us since it opened so there hasn't been progress there. >> i had a question about the strand theater, my understanding is the only thing left is the facade and there is nothing of the interior that is left. >> that is correct. >> there are portions of the
4:56 pm
theater shell that are there but they have been altered. >> pretty significantly. >> they were pursuing article 11 designation which is limited to the exterior and we made them aware it is up to the commission to decide whether or not enough of the building is retained to warrant designation >> that doesn't seem like a high priority. it is renovated and not going anywhere. >> i think with most of the property said on the existing work program we made aside from the residential buildings we made a lot of progress. >> [inaudible] >> it seems to me that we have made as you pointed significant work on a lot of these and they are sitting
4:57 pm
there and my inclination is move those forward to have resolution that will clear our decks, so to speak. on the golden gate park lake house, i would be very content to let that stay where it is until the rec and park decide its position as we have got other things that i feel are much more pressing than golden gate park which seems to be in really good hands. there are so many of these that just really need an serious look and so i was thinking, if we can get the ones that are substantially completed and add to that group any of those that are
4:58 pm
threatened, then to me that would be-like group number 1 and it-i would say which in group number 1 moves first and which moves 4th should probably be left up to the staff to figure out the most organized way to move forward with that. once we do, we get those things organized then the ones in the middle where we need a report or we have a owner that is a little on the fence or something like that, then i thichck think we could address those separately in another meeting and so that is how i would approach that if i were the czar. i am interested in the van ness street lamps. i don't have a feeling that i know where we are on that. >> you want to address the
4:59 pm
street lamps at the moment? >> sure. commissioners in 2011 -just prior to that my recollection is, the landmarks board included them on the work program considering there was a project in the pipeline for the van ness brt. i think in 2011 if was the commission then decided there were other priorities and so they fell off of the work program and you added other properties. that's my recollection, but if you remember differently we can always go back and listen to the tape. >> i don't remember it falling off as a priority, but- >> i don't remember taking it off, maybe it fell off by accident.
5:00 pm
[laughter] regardless of whether it fell on or off why dont you tell us the status of the project because isn't the project cleared to remove them all or- >> yes, the outstanding item now is the remainder of the light standards within the civic center landmark district when the commission asked which can be repaired and retained with a emphasis on the 4 directly across city hall and off plaza or veterans memorial plaza. that is where it is now. it was vetted through a eir process, which the landmarks board had a tupt to comment on and then we had multiple hearings through the certificate of appropriateness. >> what happened i think in the eir process 1 the light poles were
5:01 pm
determined not historic resource because they lacked integrity because they had been moved and not because of the condition? >> that was the primary reason and they are different-they had modified since the original installation. there was a wpa project that modified them. >> as part of the bus rapid transit project mta feels they can't reuse the light poles and don't work with alignment of the streets so have gotten approval to remove them all? >> correct >> accept for the ones in the civic center. that is where the lights standards are today. i don't recall discussion where they took them off the program. maybe they are absent that day, i don't remember. >> we'll go back and look. we'll listen to the tapes and report back. >> i don't want to spend a lot
5:02 pm
of time listening to 4 years of tapes and allocating resources. >> i guess the point is there is nothing that can be done, they are already going to be removed >> yes, the current proposal is remove them all. >> right and between now and december. >> the ones under the purview of the commission are the ones- >> within the civic center. right. >> which we haven't seen a final proposal on yet. >> as i recall for me, it was a serious issue about having these posts slowly detearierating because nobody would maintain them. everybody said it is not our deal, so- >> that is for ones within the civic center district which are only
5:03 pm
4 >> if that apply tooz the one in the civicsenter it must apply to all the others. >> there are 200 >> that is correct they can not be reused or integrated into the current design for van ness brt. >> that has always been a concern i had. if they were to stay there, how would that work actually? >> mta is without deal wg the mechanics of all that and who is responsible, mta stated that they would largely just be decorative light fixtures under the other mandatory or required light standards and infrastructure they are required to run on van ness brt >> who would maintain them? >> it could not be mta. >> commissioner hasz >> thank you. just from a
5:04 pm
construction side because i live in the marina and travel van ness and when the light pole thing came up it took a long time observing light poles down and the way they are built is concrete around rebar and they busted open and rebar expands and pops the concrete off. in my opinion there is no saving them because they are just built strucktually unsound and you would literally just tear them apart and rebuild them and it is brand new light poles. i just sonet think there is any saving them in a safe manner. there is concrete falling off and those things will just knock right over. as much as i hate to lose them i dont think there is a reasonable financial way of saving them. >> i also add this project hasz has been going through years of process and shocking it takes so long to
5:05 pm
build bus rapid transit in a area that needs bus rapid transit. adding the [inaudible] would take a gigantic step backwards and something that hasz gone through hearings for years so wouldn't support it at this point. i think if we can do what we can to save the 4 in the civic center we should, but don't support adding the remainder to the program. >> commissioner hyland. >> i don't have a buzzer. i have one question, are the light poles the van ness light poles the only item we discussed today not listed in the staff report? >> i think so >> other than the sky line realty building. >> yes . and the rousso district is listed in red, it say-it is request to
5:06 pm
add it. >> request to add it. we are actively working on it so wanted to show the hours and how we track it but it isn't actually on the work program. >> okay. i would be complete support of what commissioner johnck said and take care the ones we initiated and have work need ed to complete them and bring the ones at risk up to the first group and let staff figure how best to putting those that are on the first category to completion. >> can we identify which are at risk if that is the category? >> i think staff we have recommendations and certainly hearing from you what additional recommendations you would add-i mean, the high temple, the glady [inaudible] office building is in a area where there is a lot of development and across the street from the
5:07 pm
stud. the lray theater, mission street, chompy building, maceys is selling a lot of their stores, the old i magnum store can be argued as being a potential- >> they are selling the mens store. >> [inaudible] >> they were closing 100 other stores. those are the ones that certainly the grand orienta and buildings around souckt park we understand that is a priority. the gal vunizeing work building is pursuing national status on their own which we thought is a great way-because they are seeking [inaudible] too. i think that could be handled by the property owners. 6th street lodging is a area that will
5:08 pm
likely have development pressure which central soma area plan passes and can preserve part of article 11 district rather than article 10 if you choose. this is all off the top of our heads. more anecdotal information than perceived threat. >> commissioner johnck >> i just want to say the only building we haven't had part of discussion is palace of fine arts and potential- >> that is already a landmark. >> i know it is already a landmark but thought we need to discuss it. >> there is discussion about bringing rec and park having present their proposal but it hasn't gone anywhere and selected [inaudible] it is sort of on hold. commissioner hasz. >> commissioner hyland. >> are any of these candidates
5:09 pm
for the cultural heritage business registry? >> [multiple speakers at same time] >> community thrift would likely be eligible. >> i don't know if there is something we could encourage the district supervisor to consider pushing those forward. >> some of the nonprofits- >> the cultural center. >> is that something you need official from us or write a memo to the supervisors and request their support? >> i think we would start with mentioning during our regular office hours with the supervisor jz go from there. >> can you do that? >> absolutely.
5:10 pm
>> so i guess the question is there a reason not to include the complete list as part of the work program. we have a record of it and remove or modify property said later but move forward with ones that have had the most work undertaken and properties identified as threaten if that is your immediate priorities. given the number of properties there isn't a point prioritizing all of it. that will include adding the rousso district. >> commissioners, as a reminder and also for the benefit of the public, as we discuss the properties, once the commission agrees the list makes sense we will start engage the property owners so more information will come to light then that may incluns which ones you decide to prioritize, so
5:11 pm
after this hearing we'll engage with each of the property owners and let them know of the commissions intent and departments intent. >> right. yes, commissioner matsuda >> but the next meeting can you give a quick summary of what your proposal is? >> sure. >> that would be great. >> at the next quarterly report which is september. >> right. can i make general comments? thank you very much for this, it is great to see-i so really like the little thermometer, it helps a lot. i wonder maybe next time just for a quick visual overview if you could just make one. the red, those that have been landmarked and receiving priorities so we can see where we are in the district and where see see the empty holes. >> like a map?
5:12 pm
>> yes. >> actually the map can have the categories, 4 categories whether it is modern or underrepresent ore cultural ethnic that is a interesting way to see that >> that is a great to see the visual of the whole city where we can see where we are not identifying. i like the fact on the website now there is information about process for communities who want to nominate buildings in their districts, but what may be helpful would be a real life sample of something that you feel [inaudible] and easy to understand and somebody can just say i get it, let's take this asure timp temperate and work from there. i don't know if this is good or bad thing but can you remind me about what park and rec and feelings about not wanting to [inaudible] golden
5:13 pm
gate park 6789 i know they got a lot of state money a long time ago to start doing a lot of renovation and maintenance and just assumed from that point on they would start to work to identify a lot of the historical very famous sites and just kind of didn't follow through with that. am i opening up something we shouldn't talk about? >> we haven't had a discussion with rec park in a number of years but where we ended the conversation and their primary concern is delynninated boundaries around the elements within golden gate park that was truly significant under the purview of this commission and rec park commission. they felt a blanket district designation would leave too much open to interpretation and there was concern about everything from
5:14 pm
maintenance to landscape features to actual buildings of where all the pieces would fall in terms of process. we were starting to make progress on that but again, other priorities came up and we knew it would take a long time to get everybody on the same page and so that is why we pushed it down to theened of the list. >> i don't know if commissioner hyland would feel strongly about this but maybe we can work with them to put some methodology or some framework for guidelines as to what may be considered historic or culturally significant within golden gate park so they have something to work off with and something on the website something to identify the great sites probably no one knows about. >> it would be interesting to look at central park in new york is a
5:15 pm
landmark district and interesting to see how they deal with that. it hasz the same size and maintenance and issue squz somehow they manage to continue to do improvements. >> at least people can know-- >> yeah >> they also have central park conservevancy so there is a private public partnership. >> landscape is a criteria we have on this so could be a possibility. do we need a motion for this item? is this a action item? >> commissioners there wasn't a motion included in the packets but differ to the commission secretary if something needs 250 be formized. i think we heard your comments and know what we
5:16 pm
need to provide in a month so keep the conversations mubing and other designations moving forward. >> it was a non action item just for review and comment so think the submitted of your comments will be reviewed by staff and followed up appropriately and if i heard there will be a follow up in september so you will hear back from staff. >> i have one comment. i want #d to laugh about that as recently as about 18 months ago we were complaining we were not landmarking enough and our jobs were not fulfilling enough because of that and now we have a plethora of action items for this so i'm really pleased to see how far we have come in a very short period of time to really beef up this part the program we thought was inadequate so congratulate the department on all the work you have done on this. >> staff and intnchs. >> yes, thank you hanna. >> excellent presentation.
5:17 pm
>> that places on item 7. the mission murals inventory project. this is a informational presentation. >> are we ready for mr. fry? >> i think [inaudible] giving a quick bio mpt >> alright. >> mr. fry, we are waiting for you. >> pardon me. before lyndy presents i want to formally introduce, lyndy see crest with the department as
5:18 pm
part of summer internship program and done work on mission murals inventory coordinating with a variety oof players which she will go into more detail and a lot of good has come out of the project and been able to use it in the day to day work already and there is interest in having lyndy author a journal article about the program in the near future. with that, i like to introduce you to lyndy and have her share her great work with you. >> welcome. >> good afternoon, lyndy see crest. the item before you is a mission murals inventory project. my internship project was to create a intrentory of murals to aid in cultural and hisical muralsism the mission is known for viberant murals that add beauty
5:19 pm
and demonstrate the rich latino cultural for tourist and resident to enjoy. this was collaboration with sf heritage and [inaudible] the goal was to create a internal [inaudible] reviewing projects involving murals. the end result is inventory documented mural documentation, gis layeroffs the murals and sf property information map flagging parcels that have murals. the methodology was simple, i researched how other jurisdictions handled mural preservation and how art is organize #79d. researched the mission dist rth and community mural movement to get context for the area. lastly, researched specific murals to find information to add to the inventory. i also visited proceeda [inaudible] archives and conducted interviews with [inaudible] it gain more information about the murals. a survey was
5:20 pm
conducted in order to document the existing murals. the mission trail mural walk map was used as the boundary because it had money murals located. this extend from 17th street south to bourno heights and dolores street east to potrero. other murals were found by walking and talk toog community members who showed me their favorite murals. all the murals surveyed was created which include mural and artist information, location information and background information. there are over 500 murals documented so as you can see the categories are magnifyed and can see which things we looked for for information. things like title, date of completion of the mural,
5:21 pm
artist information--the mission murals were born out of the sxhunty mural muchbment of the 1970. the political issue squz termile of the late 60's caused many to speak out. murals were painted all over the country as a way for working class people to express what was important. the primarily latino population in the mission was influenced by mexican murals and [inaudible] muralist [inaudible] the result is the largest concentration of community murals in san francisco. community murals are also unique in they are painted by or with community members rather than simply for them. the themes reflect values of the community and common themeerize social and political issues, pride of
5:22 pm
latino heritage and celebration of life. this timeline shows various community organizations founded during the movement included gallery [inaudible] the mission cultural center for latino arts and [inaudible] mission art 415. also shown are important people, events and praunlects and history of the mission murals. for example, [inaudible] was a collaborative of female artist who painted large outdoor murals focus on political and social change but through womens perspectives and experiences. part of the inventory includes a classification of the murals. during my interviews with susan sur vaunt as helped categorized murals most significant. there are 3 separate categories, legacy, ken temporary and temporary murals.
5:23 pm
legacy murals are most significant. this also is the first mural a part of historic murals clusters such as 24th street mini park and cesar chavez elementary school. it was murals painted by veteran aurtest of the move including [inaudible] contemporary murals are those painted after the mural movement usually in the 2000 who contributed to mission district and work is highly valued and respected by community members. temporary murals are painted over our changed. usually alley [inaudible] for temporary service like [inaudible] temporary murals preserving
5:24 pm
the art space for artist to express themselves is more valued that preserving a specific mural for long periods of time. some existed for a few years where this one was painted a year to less than a year later. one the greatest threats the community murals face is change of ownership. the new owners having no ties or obligation to the #c3450u7bty will be unaware of the importance to the mural and may do work that impacts the mural. this legacy mural by veteran artist [inaudible] was completely painted over leebing a blank wall. the goal of the project was to create a tool for planners that will help address this. the inventory and gis layer and resulting block book notification in the property information map will be used to flag buildings so planners are
5:25 pm
aware of them. this is timely considering the changing demo graphics. we have documentation to provide feedback about the existence of murals. hopefully the tool helps preerfb the cultural elements in a changing environment. this concludes my prezen taishz and happy to answer questions, and thank you, that was a fantastic presentation. >> how do we get a list? >> you can contact the planning department. >> happy to share that with the commissioners. >> i'd like a copy of the presentation or some generally [inaudible] these presentations are posted to the website so you can find it there and can forward it to the
5:26 pm
commissioners. i like to share with other people. >> thank you. great project. at this time we'll take public comment. any member wish to comment on the mission mural inventory project? seeing and hearing none, we'll close public comment and any other comments on that project? >> how long [inaudible] >> they are presenting the final projects over the next couple weeks and they are gone august 26. >> you should have all received invitations to the project presentations. >> great, i think-mrs. parks. >> presenting the final project next week i think monday, wednesday, thursday and friday. >> i think that is right. great, thank you and so glad to have you all here and hearing is closed. >> very good commissioners. do
5:27 pm
you want a brief break before starting? [meeting adjourned]test. >> we'll call the shortened special meeting of the transbay joint powers authority for thursday, august 25, 2016, will you call the roll madam secretary. >> and note for the shortened record supervisor kim is having a scheduling conflict.
5:28 pm
>> director reiskin and director nuru and director harper is we have quorum. >> thank you. >> next item. >> >> 3 public comment for members of the public e members to address you own not on today's calendar and no speakers. >> there's a small calendar. >> next item. >> the shortened special calendar item 4 is authorizing the shortened intern executive director for the one and $70 million with the shortened u.s. department of transportation and the shortened collateral agency for the shortened finances moving forward and thank god the shortened chief financial officer for the hedging as by the shortened lender and the shortened interest rate for the shortened intern. >> directors we'll present on this item. >> good afternoon directors.
5:29 pm
>> we're requesting for your approval for mark to be able to execute a negotiated third amendment to the shortened third amendment to what is called the collateral agency agreement the shortened agreement that delicates the flow of funds for that the loan and in short the shortened amendment are necessary for the shortened city financing to close the city financing has the parity in the plunged revenue revenues and an amendment is necessary in order for them to content to the city financing they've provided the draft and we are working with them to finalize them any changes will be we'll only agree to changes beneficial to tjpa one requirement they have placed
5:30 pm
on approving the shortened city financing we have to have interest rate to enter into an interest rate for the shortened city fink our proposal is that we not hedge the shortened entire amount of the city financing at the same rate as you you've heard mark and ron comment we'll not use the entire amount to the proposal is that we hedge for the shortened amount we are expected to draw no-brainer one hundred and 50 mental illness at a 3 percent rate and less hedge remainder 4 to 5 percent. >> so approving that will allow us to move forward for the shortened bridge loan we did a competitive interest rate and the shortened cap when will be the same unless we determined it is no, not in our best interest
5:31 pm
if we determine that most cost-efficient to purchase two new caps for the shortened pretty much requirements and not needed any further for the brick loan and with that, i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> and a bit avenue technical item. >> how can you sell something not needed any further. >> an asset that has value in the market one and 3 percent cap is in the money speaks for itself meaning that the shortened interest rates have been above the strict process to so we've golden payment a full year term if we held on to it any time it was blow 3- base points a payment in july we have
5:32 pm
approximately $90,000 because the shortened bridge loan is no longer outstanding but the shortened interest rate for such we received a payment i think that would be - if we're not modifying it to use it for the shortened purposes it would be in our best interests to sell it rather than 50 or $90,000 here and there but to try to recoup some of the costs of the original cap. >> so it will have to go through the shortened swap advisory i've never trusted that situation no market no market there just a bunch of whorl and dealers that's a long term player that gets the shortened deal i don't know that tjpa considered a long term plan but avoid this if you can getting
5:33 pm
new i s da agreement but you have to have them i think they're basically junk just to get the boys some money any questions on it. >> straightforward that's the shortened problem yeah. i like the will fact there is a 4.5 percentage 16 years ago. >> not request quite that but sitting other than a rich, rich loan and want to you 9 to 5 it might fair market rate no objections and both together two resolutions; right? >> two resolution.
5:34 pm
>> one resolution. >> just one resolution okay. >> second. >> motion and approval will you call the roll. >> and no public comments wants to address the item director reiskin director nuru and director harper 4 i's and item is approved okay. >> call the shortened north america. >> good work by the way, that is complex thing. >> we have a full team to help out so - >> next item, please. >> item 5 quarterly financial report. >> and directors you have the shortened quarterly financial reports for the full 2016 fiscal year so it is the shortened complete budget protocol, of course, everybody or everything is within the shortened available budget and mark requests i point

5:36 pm
and we've been utilizing what we received since the shortened beginning so we will be asking for that money one way or another in the transit center opening. >> so our deal with regions is two is sort of as imagining occurred expense thing not a full grant. >> we received 4.5 and don't ask so historically we've left continue 5 and $600,000 a year i'm saying as we have discussions with the region on the shortened operations opens we'll ask for unused money. >> is that because the town hall toll of our operational experiences are not enough. >> we - the total of our needs are less than a with we
5:37 pm
received a and a. >> we cover the shortened operating expenses and able to take the shortened lease revenue and put to an operating. >> only apprehensible to the terminal the shortened five and six money. >> an operating grant for the transit center when we move over to the shortened transit center. >> and can our administrative overhead is partially reimbursed spent a lot of time. >> if we do the shortened cross allocation plan recover the shortened staff time with the manager running the facility we don't spend a lot of time for the shortened to me terminal. >> this money we'll be scarred

(shouting.). >> more and more city's high san francisco is committing to dislocate to end all traffic death that means improving safety for people walking and driving and safety on our streets is everyone's responsibility people can make mistakes but not result in injury or death all traffic collisions are preventable as drivers you play a large role that will give you the tools to drive safely on streets a recent survey asks hundreds of drivers about save city introduce driving what did they say watch for distracted behavior and slow down and be patient and check for people before you turn
5:46 pm
the facts about city driving shows how important to be alert most collisions happen in good weather allowance even at 25 mile-per-hour it takes a vehicle 85 feet to stop this is almost 7 car lengths slowing down makes collisions less savior when a person is hit by a passerby vehicle 25 minor the chance of death is 25 percent 40 percent that increases inform 85 percent slowing down didn't cost much time driving behind a person takes 9 extra semiautomatic and stopping at the yellow light takes only 30 seconds by hitting someone costs you hours and weeks of our time and maybe a
5:47 pm
life take a deep breath and take you're time cities cross america are being safely for walking and driving some streets are confusing here's what you need to know all intersection kroukz of novelist marked some are marked to make them more visible other crosswalks and intersections are raised to the level of sidewalk to actress as speed bump and people are maybe crossing be cautious and watch for people when you approach any intersection advanced limit lines and pedestrian yield signs show drivers where people walk and stop behind the lines at stop signs and for people crossing
5:48 pm
bulb outs where the sidewalks extends into the street make that tease easy to see pedestrians and remember to slow down whether making reasons and watch for people on sidewalk estimations extensions that maybe closer than you expect and bicyclists may motive to the left to get around bulb outs this gives people a head start allowing pedestrians to enter the crosswalk before transfer starts moving makes them more visible pedestrian scrimmage and stop the vehicles in all directions allow people to cross including department of building inspection scrambles are paired with no light restriction and rapid beacons you turn bright whether the pedestrians are
5:49 pm
there or the center is activated precede slowly as you approach the beacons especially, if their activated a pedestrian crossing light turns yellow before turning sold red back to flash red procedure after making a full stop as long as the sidewalk is empty and, of course, stop whenever the light is red traffic circles reduce conflicts you must stop at the strewn and precede around the raise your right hand of the circle watch for people in crosswalks and people in bikes coming around the circle arrows indicate where people with bikes share the
5:50 pm
intersections and people have ride to people on bikes have the right to use the lane whether or not in the sharing bike lanes are for people protected by parks e.r. parked cars and stay out of separated bike lanes unless an emergency dashed bike lanes are a shared zone four for vehicles to change lanes slow bike lanes allow the circles their unusually sprayed before me from other traffic some bike lanes are built to the level higher than the street but lower than the sidewalk they provide a safe separated space sponsor cyclists are around vehicles the box areas are marked with the stencil at intersections act as
5:51 pm
advanced limit lines for people to garter at a red light this increases the 1r0ir7b9 to drivers people will ride past stopped vehicles at the fronltd of the intersection give them room and stop short of limit line behind the bike without objection and cross only after the green light and people cleared the bike box bicycle traffic lights allow people on bikes to proceed while vehicles are stopped be unaware aware of those bike san francisco general hospital but stay alert and only skrans when the vehicle is cleared the intersection let's take a quiz to see what all of learned here we go number one when do month collisions happen did you say in
5:52 pm
daytime you're correct question two if an intersection is not marched is it still a crosswalk yes did you get it right great job one more before we go on what's one of the best things to do to avoid collisions? you can it take a breath pay attention and slow down city streets are crowded and chaotic so seeing everyone every single everything is difficult here's a test how many times did the white team pass the ball? if you answered 11 you're
5:53 pm
correct but did you notice anything else also be aware ever you're surrounded and remember that is easy 0 miss something if you're not looking for it here's some basic principles driving near peep e people from you're driver's seat it is difficult address our mirrors to reduce blind spots people on bicycles maybe be in our blind spot give yourselves plenty of time to react look out stay on the road from building to building not just curve to curve check driveways and behind parked vehicles for people that enter our path turning vehicles are especially dangerous important people walking and
5:54 pm
