11:09 pm
completed at some point soon and that i also know that vision zero which is a big part of what we're trying to do at the ta is something that is important to you as impacts a in regards to the number of incidents or collisions that happens in our district i know you'll pay attention to that as many of us are passionate and also appreciate that in our opening statement about a month ago in taking the chair position that you made the mention that you really want to look at not only a win district but how to have the best so i'm a representative of the west side i deeply
11:10 pm
appreciate that comment so i will nominate you. >> thank you commissioner yee is there a second seconded by commissioner kim on that item a roll call please. >> take further nominations. >> seeing no other names on the roster, the nominations are closed and second a roll call. >> any public comment. >> oh, this right public comment on the election of the chair seeing none, public comment is closed. mr. stamos. >> on the motion for chair commissioner breed commissioner cohen commissioner farrell commissioner fewer commissioner kim
11:11 pm
commissioner peskin commissioner ronen commissioner safai commissioner sheehy commissioner tang commissioner yee the motion is approved. >> thank you for that colleagues is there a motion nomination for vice chair of the ta? commissioner kim >> yes. i would like to nominate commissioner tang for possession of the vice chair of the transportation authority i think that actually, it is a great balance to have someone represent the west side of the city and county and commissioner tang has been a thoughtful advocate not only for her district but other districts that don't get resources around public transit and many of the other district do i think she'll be a great balance as a vice chair i'm honored to nominate
11:12 pm
her today. >> is there a second for that motion. >> seconded by commissioner breed she beat you commissioner cohen are there any additional nominations for vice chair? seeing none, nominations are closed is there any public comment on the vice chair position if so seeing none, public comment is closed. and why not take that same house, same call? congratulations vice chair tilly chang and now that you guys have all made the mistake of nominating and electing us let me tell you was on my mind (laughter) >> so what i have the honor of being elected to the intern position after chair wiener went to sacramento in his role and a as the state senator i said a
11:13 pm
few words about that body and agency that is actually a remarkablely important powerful agency i have to say many of us whether we're members of the public or members of this body is not as engaged as we could be and i would venue to say as we should be i'd like to try to change that i think we have very important decisions to make and as we are looking at multiple billion dollars projects actually multi multi billion dollars projects we have to get our housing house in order relative to priorities we have caltrans electrification and tip of the iceberg they owes the city and county while we're wearing our 09 hats a quarter of a million dollars and the
11:14 pm
central subway we've got in ambitious subway plan we need to have city attorney a exemption with the public and our staff about our priorities where that is van ness brt or not going to be able to have it all it is good to plan four the future but given what we all know is a seat change at the federal level that will profoundly impact high speed rail to you name it so i wanted to i want to put that out there and want to commissioner tang and i have had those conversations suggest that we start considering having some third party vicinity oversight at this body we consider working with our staff to create and put out a request for proposals to have something that is akin to the role that the legislative
11:15 pm
and budget analyst praise for the board of supervisors i think this agency would actually benefit from that. >> and then finally as chair i want to collaborate with all of you to do the following things which is as our san francisco transportation authority has become an extremely independent authority as a matter of charter law i hear hear from you sometimes you're not getting what you need and our constituents are demanding in large part not a funding agency i want to use this body and work with you to insure that the mta we give hundreds of million dollars is meeting your needs in your district as well as all of our needs citywide so those are the comments i want to make and
11:16 pm
also think we have a role which we all see on our agendas as we monitor and support and oppose various pieces of state legislation we center much more regular much more in depth czechs e checking and let me leave you with that on thought i'm not agnostic about but thought about who we will be better served to meet trice a month as a full body and maybe our committees are not doing we we need to do but spent a couple of hours what has traditionally gone to finance and programs as a full body food for thought let's check in on that formally and informally we can see ahead and thank you very much fewer confidence and support and supervisor president breed the floor is yours.
11:17 pm
>> thank you. congratulations chair peskin i want to say i appreciate your thoughts and leadership on this body i also am really existed about the opportunity to have an independent oversight body similar to the you budget analyst for the board of supervisors that could really help us to dissect a lot of the layers of what we're doing in terms of providing funding resources to some of our many transportation projects and i know this body also does strategic planning but i think that taking the opportunity to have a robust decision about strategic planning pea how we look at the bigger picture that is exactly what you're talking about i think could be helpful to make sure that with those many complicated layers we can basically take them and put in
11:18 pm
in a large picture and start to move towards progress simultaneously for all those various layers of projects that exist all over the city rather than responsive to independent projects how those projects will impact others and make sense to layer those on top of each other to those can help us to understand what we should or shouldn't as 12 relates to what we'll be damien e dealing with around transbay i'm excited and glad you thoughtless what was on our mind this will help us moving in the right direction and make the transportation in san francisco a lot better for those who are here and travel around the city we want to be a transit first and want to make sure that our infrastructure is
11:19 pm
in place in order to accommodate it congratulations to you and commissioner tang i think you guys are working really well together this will be a great committee or commission and i'm excited about that thank you and congratulations. >> thank you for your comments commissioner breed and vice chair tilly chang. >> congratulations chair peskin i want to congratulate you as well and using form supervisor avalos words i hope we don't sleepwalk introduce the transportation authority it is incredibly important and so many money that goes before us so i'm existed to be able to work with chair peskin in that capacity and i think that you know you being transparent with our thoughts i think that was refreshing one thing you mentioned how it is we can also utilities this opportunity with
11:20 pm
the mta to work with other sfmta agencies and there has been times i have turned to ta staff the wonderful ta staff to help us whether or not initiating the studies that work you, you know push other agencies i want to thank you for that and hopefully, we'll continue building on this incredible work together congratulations. >> thank you commissioner tang if no other comments from members mr. stamos call the next item. >> allocate the $6 million plus in prop k fund with conditions for the downtown rail extension subject to the task force distribution schedule an action item. >> ms. lombardi. >> congratulations chair and vice chair welcome to the new commissioners this is the nice allocation to start off with
11:21 pm
given several months have lapsed this my idea why this is coming to you today and turn to michael to give a brief synopsis this is related to the electrification program with the boulevard study and the high speed rail not to mention a significant caltrain effort that is going on in the area this is a request for that $6 million in prop k sales tax from a line item in the voter expenditure plan specifically for new transbay terminal and the downtown expansion project that item came before this body in september commissioner peskin doesn't have a level of
11:22 pm
comfortable by i'll not go into two of them are related to the special conditions to allocate as we often do one of them is that a condition of receipt the fund if this body proves with an oversight protocol it is a written oversight models that staff - and is electrification it is in place we like to codify that when we get the funds the second condition the planning department rail yard boulevard study has a number of components one is alignment of downtown and who one we prefer or leaning towards the second condition states if that body enforces one of the alternate alignments that
11:23 pm
grant can be put on pause to renegotiate the scope or work on that with that, i think i'll hand this off unless there are questions. >> before i turn it over to transbay joint powers authority we have one of our members who sits on the oversight body that transbay transbay joint powers authority board which is commissioner kim here so i want to point out that out for those of you who don't know for the new members but wanted to put that in a little bit of context as to why in september and until now including now that i have been nervous and reticent it is very simple when this project started out it was a large and expensive project i'm talking about not the extension i'm talking about the building of
11:24 pm
transbay at the $800 million that was what it was supposed to cost when i was a member of this body a decade ago we're north of $2 billion not all of that was local money all taxpayer money but that also includes a short term actually not that she remember several years likely commercial paper loan from the the city and county of san francisco to the tjpa the tjpa is actually a kraefrn of state law all be that the city and county has 3 members on the governing board part of what makes me nervous was we're in the process of making a decision for san francisco that is a decision for the next 50 or one hundred years relative to rail alignments relative to bringing this kind of infrastructure into
11:25 pm
our downtown core that those of you who might be on this board in a decade or in government or politics in a exactly know we go in with our eyes wide open by the way, this extension is what a $4 billion project didn't become a $12 billion project those are the kinds of things we as elected people need to be extremely concerned about given the fact that the transbay costs a bloody future with that, sir. >> good morning, commissioners congratulations on the election chair peskin and congratulations commissioner tang for being the vice chair i'm mark the disorderly conduct with the transbay joint powers authority i want to start by taking a minute to give a department on
11:26 pm
pier one will reach the completion on this year and current work together the bus operators to operate shortly after we hope to get them into the transit center within a timeframe if 9 contractors can't accommodate we'll on the transit center for operations we're trying to get a manager to get the contract next month and the contract manager will lease out the retail we have one hundred thousand square feet of retail that's part of their duties and in charge of - we have one hundred screens we hope to generate revenues and work with
11:27 pm
the community and activating the sponsoring at the park and also seeking - we're hoping to maximize the revenue for any gas for the operations of the transit center i'll start with the items. >> sir my understanding i think our understanding is that it is still going to require an operational subsidies even if you sectucceeded. >> there will obtain operation gap and we'll work with the transit to cover that gap right now we are trying to close that gap as long as by generating revenues at the same time achieving the goals that the board asked us to do and the community by bringing robust and activating the part with the
11:28 pm
community. >> and has staff at the transbay joint powers authority indicated they're willing to subsidies that operational funding gap. >> they're good listeners we continue to discuss that currently mtc is providing $5 million to help us with updating the temporary terminal and thoefl to increase that amount. >> what do you project the gap to be. >> i wish i can share that but, but each of the seat managers have numbers and once we have someone under contract i'll be happy to share that information with you. >> please proceed. >> the downtown extension dtx will extended underground with the high speed rail with $1.3 million from the caltrain
11:29 pm
into a transit center the construction limits $2 million the extension is 1 point miles. >> today's allocation with the use of the thirty percent drawings and the design with the requirements we will use to money to estimate to today's conditions and also the ridership study to have an active amount charges to light rail in order to fund the extension the money will perform risk assessments for the construction and program such that when a budget is adopted by the mtc board that budget are reflect
11:30 pm
the conditions and not have a difficulty so and we're also working with our funding partners in order to secure the funding from local and regional levels later in the presentation i have a slide i'll show you how we intend to do that overall the next steps we have outlined we'll come up with a 2 to thirty percent engineering accruing a program budget that 89 regional can stand behind and move forward the scope of the dtx extended the box to accommodate high speed rail and this accommodates caltrain and high speed rail to use two screens and the links is longer than than the train box we have to extend the train box since we're extending the train
11:31 pm
box we are using the reality for greenhouse and amtrak buses that includes providing a connector between the center and the bart station we'll have direct assess from the transit center to include bart and this includes the train box itself that was built as part of phase one and build the tunnel between the train box and the station on 4 and king it will be a combieng of open excavation we have a - at the end of the alignment that will allow us to further ground the tunnels into 22 street and in the future to continue the
11:32 pm
undergrounding. >> ever since it started in development we've been working closely with r e b t this shows the relationship we discussed by the team and the dtx is in green this is a basic alternative with the avenue alignment in orange is is an estimation while the dtx is under operation and moved the alignment to the third street alignment which is a third alignment under consumer price index and continue to work with the team and as mentioned we can land what how best to advance dtx and bring trains to the transit center that is a draft schedule we put together for the dtx it shows we can bring trains to the transit center in funding is available and the ridership position -
11:33 pm
currently our ridership schedule is started the process in the middle of 2018 that is predicted on securing the funding from r o-3 if it passed also predicted on the r and b study to determine what the best alignment for the dtx. >> and that slide is the funding slide we developed our draft estimates are approximately $4 billion with the city's allocation we'll be able to up that estimate and be sure that that estimate is the right estimate moving forward we currently have identified the potential funding the amount blow theblast imply box between 6 hundred and 8 hundred plus million dollars at the include 20075 to plus million dollars
11:34 pm
for the between 200 and $4 million in tax increments the blue box is the amounts for the current area plan under consideration approximately 2 med $2 billion one billion dollars is for the sfmta parts program and $3 million for the funding $350 million for the san francisco county tax and $575 million from high speed rail that equals the business plan and one more parcel to be sold that parcel is currently the location of the temporary terminal once we on the transit terminal that parking becomes available that value is approximately 200 and $45 million we also have district between
11:35 pm
$865 million plus with discharges they'll be leveled for passengers that terminate their travel at the transit center currently caltrans riders stop at fourth and king to reach tare district they'll get on muni or other means so with charging equal to what they're paying between two or $3 million and charging caltrans between 8 and 11 explores that and $26 we generate between 8 hundred plus million dollars that concludes my presentation. i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> thank you, sir are there any questions from commissioners. >> are there any members of the public wyoming like to testify on this item? >> please come forward.
11:36 pm
>> we're in receipt of our communications. >> there they are quite a few of the issues i have them attached to the legal mandate on the legal mandate you have two the first one is the funds that basically means that must include the ability of the transbay and the east bay no two ways about it. the second legal mandate is properties 334 you need to have a non-stop train to translate in thirty minutes if you don't, you basically don't have access to any of the prop a
11:37 pm
bonds because if you look at this $557 million that is dtx but you see you can't achieve that figure and jeopardizes that you talk about - small business at some point has to ask the question how come we can build the central subway one .7 miles and then somebody said well, we'll get one .3 miles for $4 billion is goes down the construction you have a lot of construction with the costs and the impacts so in closing my recommendation to you to limit the appropriations to one million
11:38 pm
dollars for the sole purpose of basically wrapping up what needs to be done some point in time you will understand the issues thank you very much. >> and with regard to your letter your contention it is that those 3 sweeping terms will end up which the trains will have to slow down at 25 mile-per-hour will there beyond thirty minutes. >> yes. just going from town to the translation about - >> so what you're saying the alignment is wrong. >> yes. the alignment is wrong and actually, the there is another alignment that is missing that can't achieve that is not discussed right now. >> thank you, sir. >> mr. has.
11:39 pm
>> commissioner i'm jimmy have been before you several times to appoint the dtx plan will go off the west side of mission bay and jeopardize the campus you and the city and you the board of supervisors and this commission needs to take control over this project and coordinate it as you may know the planning department has the study which i'm on the citizens workshop i our report will be available in march no square feet confirm the inadequacy of current plan and indicate the only vicariously way to get the train downtown is on the west side of potrero hill either parallel to 7th street or third street
11:40 pm
now what needs to be done is not to fund this project as you were asked for but to fund the work around the terminal and second street and the study to develop the final tunnel plan to bring the train downtown that's the only viable way to get the train downtown so this work needs to be coordinated and right now and by the way, when you put the new tunnel together with the existing tunnel we're talking about $6 million budget thank you. >> thank you, mr. has any public comment? that wants to testify on this item seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioner sheehy the floor is yours. >> so obviously the chair has
11:41 pm
spent more time on this to continue this public comments we need to think we should be much more involved before the money i've worked down there i know the configuration and don't know as the gentleman noted when you look at the high speed right a karate's configuration we have i know we had the warriors going in we knew we would increase the capacity beyond what we had so i don't know what options are available but certainly completing the r e b study that the way in which they're planning on going both this is crazy to me. >> is a commissioner sheehy part of the reason the previous
11:42 pm
delayed this was an interest in seeing the results of arab study and part of the reason he needed to put it on this particular agenda was because we now have four new members of this body relative to the motion their 3 we vote it up and give them their 6 point plus million dollars option two vote it down and option 3 we can continue there is actually a fourth option that the gentleman suggested within the purview of this body we can give them less money in order to allow them pronouncing to finish their supplemental document those are the of your choice you as a new commissioner, i think have ever
11:43 pm
right to spend time not an easy decision and maybe we should look to some of the other new members as to what there will is and perhaps if you need more time to look at it with all due respect to the tjpa executive director he may differ given that high speed rail is not going to get there until if everybody is luke w8 /* /- lucky. >> i'd like to do that to understand this before i vote on this this is is a multi billion dollars the configuration doesn't make sense we have people analyzing this.
11:44 pm
>> you know you have more experience you continued is one i'll respect the judgment of the chair. >> it was in committee and came to the full commission and got continued this is the first time it is heard why not hear from commissioner ronen and then commissioner fewer and then visit with staff unless anyone else wants to weigh in commissioner ronen. >> commissioner ronen if you turn that microphone on. >> that would be helpful. >> i'm feeling the same way i have a question for you what would be the impact if we continued this a month or 2 down the road. >> we have the distributions with the tilly chang in last year and brought it to the
11:45 pm
commission commissioner peskin had a lot of questions at a time and responded to all the questions if we take another month almost a 9 month delay given we're almost done with phase one i'm eager to move forward with phase two all the allocations is the design for the 40 percent completion and we're not - we're going to wait to finish but not including anything else happening as part of the r e b study for the baby steps for the project if you look at the r e d you have the alignments of the dtx then the avenue and the third street alignment you work along second street the work on the box and the pedestrian connector for
11:46 pm
bart if the r e b study stays essays this is the alignment it shown in orange those are extension active and could happen while the dtx is under construction if the 85 percent of the work along second street and the box and the green box as well as the pedestrian connector that work will think e be preserved for the fourth street alignment 0 i urge you to move forward to continue on the project and come back with the r e b study will be completed next month and adjust as needed. >> one thought before we hear
11:47 pm
from commissioner fewer perhaps a will to continue this to our next meeting that at that meeting we actually get susan who is in charge of the r a b study to present at the same time to see all of that before we make a decision with regards to this allocation commissioner fewer. >> thank you chair peskin i also would like to see p continued i have a question about the capital actually, the money part of it i actually have more questions about the design i would feel more comfortable postponing this vote until we get the adequate research thank you. >> thank you commissioner fewer commissioner kim. >> i just want to say i'm glad we have new commissioners on board and think that is important for the four new
11:48 pm
members to said understand this - and, of course, it is complicated is involves several agencies caltrain and caltrans and high speed rail and the connected for the original terminal project will be the new transportation thank you, everybody, u hub for light rail and the downtown extension and now through many years of delays and a complete divestment for the transportation for light rail we're seeing phase two continuing despite the fact that a box is constructed in phase one with the terminal ready for the train to come into 9 downtown area i want to see all
11:49 pm
this happen and the high speed rail in san francisco and in many ways the terminal will help us get there and many want to see this in san jose we have a lot of deinvestigating with the points an alignment that was approved back before i was on the board of supervisors and now there is a question about whether this alignment for the new light rail and caltrain downtown extension i want to currently the new members to understand this project and a lot of questions i think at some point we need to move forward with the funding on the skwien i'd like to see that happen but acknowledge that i mean this is a complex project and going back in time there were many decisions i would have made about those those two phases would have occurred and
11:50 pm
recognize the executive director for leading the helm there are there's a lot of moving parts and a lot of actors and players thank you commissioner kim. >> commissioner safai. >> hi yes. i'd like to echo what my colleagues have said new commissioners i think that is important that we're briefed on this i'm sure a lot of requests for funding given the level and magnitude of that project it would be nice to have a better understanding of how that will be looked like and effects the decisions and have an opportunity we don't need a lot of time but you suggested next meeting give staff the opportunity to come and talk with you individually and then move forward thank you. >> commissioner safai and commissioner tang i wanted to announce the planning department staff reached out to all our offices
11:51 pm

that is a process that staff wants us for familiar recalled of how we vote on sxheshz for a continues we'll clarify in a second many any role as chair will work with our staff to bring the r a b study head here for our next regularly scheduled full commission meeting for a presentation at least any desire that everyone is engaged is proving true we're off to a good start maybe the gentleman doesn't feel that way but commissioner sheehy would you like to propose this be continued to the next regularly scheduled full commission meeting. >> yes. i have a a motion by commissioner sheehy and seconded by commissioner ronen colleagues would like a roll call vote on
11:53 pm

11:56 pm
you go to the private sector if you build another translator that is a good chance they're going to be taking the new one and even there will be extensive shut downs and that is the private sector will step in your job as supervisors is so work on the book end to make sure that on the san francisco side you're able to make the translator on embarcadero and the private sector will take over you have to work with them and my advice in oakland to look around the whole plaza it is where you need to go to satisfy the sector that brings us to the dtx because now there is no way to look at those numbers they don't add up okay. but the reason for
11:57 pm
that we have so many people but if you have traffic in the east bay a lot of traffic will not stop they'll carry on with the dtx, etc. now you may be able to have a meaningful conversation about the dtx with the private sector thank you very much. >> thank you, sir are there any other members of the public for general public comment seeing none, public comment is closed. closed. and we are
