10:10 pm
>> good afternoon everyone. welcome to the san francisco committee committee meeting for monday february 27, 2017. my name is mark mark. i will be chairing this committee. i am joined by supervisor katy tang and supervisor aaron peskin is not in town today so we will take a motion to excuse him in a minute. i want to thank our clerk and sfgtv staff for covering this meeting today. with that mr. clerk do we have any announcements? >> yes. please silence all cell phones and electronic devices. all documents submitted to the clerk and items
10:11 pm
will be on the file should be submitted to the clerk. all items acted on today will be on the march 17, 2017 board of supervisors agenda unless otherwise stated. >> great. thank you very much want mr. clerk. again supervisor tang, supervisor peskin be absent today. can we have a motion to excuse him? >> move to excuse supervisor peskin. >> we will take that without objection. with that mr. clerk can will call item number 1. >> item 1. ordinance amending the administrative code to require that all cash-out proceeds received by an owner for an affordable housing development supported in whole or in part for taxpayer funds shall be used for the creation, development and preservation of affordable housing. >> colleagues our housing persists within our city and make sure every penny for affordable housing is solely used for affordable housing
10:12 pm
needs. recently here in san francisco a developer refinanced an affordable housing development which was funded with a mix of public resources made millions off the transaction and spent the money on dark campaigns here in town and well over $100,000 to candidates and ballot measures and committees over the years. to my this activity is outrageous. there should be never a perception that resources are used for political purposes and that's why i introduced this ordinance. when affordable housing developers get funds the funds should go to affordable housing period. i have no desire to take money back from the developers in san francisco and i don't want to burden the processes. this ordinance is simple and straightforward and cottifies
10:13 pm
policy at the mayor's office of community development. affordable housing developers using fund for federal and state sources to fund affordable housing and as they repay off or refinance the loans and they can get additional funds or proceeds. as part the development deal a developer will receive a developer fee and deferred fee when finance suggest available. this ordinance requires that our mayor's office of housing and community development agreements make sure that all proceeds are use of forced for the development of affordable housing and capital proves and acquisition of property for affordable housing, building new affordable housing or the payment staff required for the creation, development, construction or preservation of affordable housing. again i want to ensure that any financial gains made from public investment and affordable housing goes back to affordable housing. to that end i have amendments i will be introducing after public comment that will
10:14 pm
make the ordinance more functional for them and the permitted use of funds. on page two i will address the language on the policy of restriction of use of developer fees. page three expanded the uses of the funds to include resident or tenant service and clarify the definition of "affordable housing" and clarifying restrictions on developer fees and annual reporting of expenditures and proceeds, so with that unless there are comments i would like to -- mr. chan do you want to speak at all? you can decline at all. >> >> good afternoon supervisors. amy chan from the mayor's house on community development. we support the policy of pre60ing the cash did she commissioner karshmer affordable housing to. >> >> in our agreements and ground let'ses with this legislation we will codify that as you said supervisor and dmaik sure it's in all of all agreements.
10:15 pm
>> great. thank you very much. any questions? okay. we will move to public comment. anyone wishing to comment on item number 1? >> hi. my name is sonny and from want ub party and strongly in support of this. obviously developers -- any affordable housing developer or any developer is still free under this rule to participate in the public process but they have to raise their money themselves just like the rest of us, you know. we have to raise money from people that agree with our mission so any affordable housing developer can still do that even under this restriction. absolutely it's the case that public money should go for what the public thinks it's for. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. anyone else to comment on item 1? seeing none. public comment is now closed. [gavel] again colleagues supervisor tang
10:16 pm
there are a number of affordable housing developers and most in san francisco that do great work that we work closely within city hall and communities to expand the housing stock. i want to commend the work mo doc does and welcome to the team and money should be for affordable housing only. if they want to engage in political speeches as mentioned in public comment they can raise private funds to do so but not off the funds of our taxpayers and we have a number of amendments supervisor tang and i would entertain unless comment a motion to entertain those and push the ordinance forward. >> thank you supervisor farrell for introducing this piece of legislation. i think it's necessary and also for working with mh doc for making it better and i will motion a motion for the amendments ready into the record and send to the full board with positive
10:17 pm
recommendation as recommend. >> thank you. we can take that supervisor tang without objection. mr. clerk would you read item 2 please. >> item 2. s four seats, three incumbents; will it be another gop year? zoning map upper market street neighborhood commercial district to reclass assessor's parcel block no. 2623, lot no. 091, at 2416-2420 market street and number 23 23, lot 06, 36 from rostreet upper market street nct district and including portions out of the market market planned area. >> thank you mr. clerk. we have staff from supervisor sheehy's office to explain this item. >> i am here for supervisor
10:18 pm
sheehy. this is a tiny piece of legislation. a few years ago former supervisor scott wiener rezoned the upper market nc d districts to the upper market nct district that has had a very series of planning code implications but because where the supervisor lived there were two parcels excluded from that effort so the legislation before you today just closes the loop and just rezones those remaining two parcels to upper market nct. >> okay. thanks mr. powers. if no question we will open it up to public comment. anyone wishing to comment on item 2 -- oh sorry additional presentation. >> good afternoon. i am with the san francisco planning department. as mentioned this is a clean up ordinance that
10:19 pm
rezone the lots to upper market nct. the ordinance will correct language in the code so that all permanents in the upper market nct are subject to the inclusionary fees and the community improvement impact fees. this section of the code was not updated when the upper market nct was expanded and this r this ordinance will update the language and the planning commission heard the item and voted for approval. finally the department would like to thank supervisor sheehy for taking sponsorship of the item. thank you. >> thank you very much. at this time we will open it up to public comment. anyone wishing to comment on item 2? seeing none. public comment is now closed. [gavel] >> i will make a motion to send fort this item to the full board with positive recommendation. >> okay. motion by supervisor tang. we can take that without objection. mr. clerk do we have any further business today? >> that completes the business today. >> thank you everybody. we are adjourned.
10:20 pm

10:21 pm
afterwards go out and literally 0 break ground i want to acknowledge folks not speaking i'm not sure they're here by representatives from nancy pelosi's office and senator harris and there was a lot of work to be done at the freshen over the years and leader pelosi in particular was a huge comment thank her and stare half and at the state level hearing from the state a strong will be afforded when the item is reached in the meeting with the transportation and our legislatures want to acknowledge supervisor chiu and supervisor scott wiener and a lot of folks made that happen but really the lead for this project has came
10:22 pm
into from right here in san francisco and one of the hallmarks of our mayor has been to forge collaboration amongst city agencies within the government and with the community and because of complexity of that project there were probably a dozen city agencies and newcomers state agency and the federal government as well as important stakeholders including some of the ones that occupy the building around where we're standing it took that kind of collaboration in other words, to get to this point i want to start off by introducing the mayor of san francisco mayor ed lee. >> (clapping.) >> thank you ed reiskin good morning, everybody. welcome to the groundbreaking of our van ness corridor bus rapid transit i want to say thank you

10:24 pm
to talk about is that we're going to have better lighting along this wonderful avenue closing in the very lengthy distance for people to cross better lighting, better walk abilities more bounce on the street will be improvements i think that people living and walker users this corridor will have a great benefit but also existed to say as your formerly c p w infrastructure person in the city excited to see four more miles of water sewer piping underneath more miles of sewer and stormwater pipelines underneath they won't leak nor break they'll be new 2000 new
10:25 pm
feet of our auxiliary water system been also underneath this is try infrastructure and i think i'm making a point that is when we tear up the roads and side medium and do all the traffic relayed improvements we're now improving as a city while we're there let's take care of what is underneath we never do the that in the past i've not seen an vastly improved and safer avenue an avenue that serves thousands of people better because of bus rapid transit but all the other smart things we're doing to include and work underneath while we have at the medium and sidewalks opened up that's real progress for a city like san francisco and, yes we'll take that as a thank you with that my two minutes are are

10:28 pm
is reliable it is not underground but a way to speed up up the line and based on the initiatives preliminary numbers that will change the travel time by over 32 percent that's big that is big when you rely on muni to get you back and forth every single day to our example work and designation one of the most important projects in the city and i can't wait until that happens because it is going to make a huge difference address isly with improvements comes sacrifice so for the next 3 years we'll have sacrifice do send me e-mails complaining when it is done you'll thank us to
