9:25 pm
you how existed and speak on behalf of everybody here to be at this milestone after many years somewhat our decades ever planning to break ground on a transformative project for one of the city's anyhow unique and special streets i - there is a way this works folks without whom we wouldn't be here i'll give an opportunity to speak and 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
9:26 pm
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 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
9:27 pm
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 to everyone on stage and offstage since 2003 with the prop k been working hard to get this project done well and right a lot of community groups thank you, again to the mta to the commissioners, staff, who working hard to get a lot of views settled but our county transportation agencies and state and federal partners that

9:29 pm
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 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
9:30 pm
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 up let's get the dirt digging and the project done thank you. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, mr. mayor that is from to have a mayor who was a public works go director not on exciting stop i like hearing the mayor get exist bye about the sewers and other things and the benefits the lighting benefits and go, of course, the traffic and transit benefits a project

9:32 pm
on time 16 thousand people that use this line gets to work on time and school and get to their designations and that's what this project is about yes, we made mistakes long ago before any any of us were born when we didn't underground the traffic systems that is expensive along the central subway and the bus rapid transit 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

reappoint them, they're wonderful people. >> any other member of the comment would like to comment on items 1-3, please come forward and state your name. >> my name is anglo king, how are you? i would like to say it's very important our brand -- i ran here to support mr. singh, it's important to have institutional memory on these appointments because sometimes you need to know the whole picture, with the dismants ling of redwoment and what was left, sometimes people don't recall what was the point of it all from curing blight to getting businesses started to the kind of economic development that needs to happen, these things are always remembered, not only that, every time i see mr. singh, any time i see him anywhere, first thing he'll say is how is your family, how is your business, what do you need out here, he's
10:15 pm
an excellent public servant and a credit to government and i'm here because i think theses the kind of person that needs to represent the city especially in these kind of matters to make sure parts of san francisco get the same kind of economic benefit that the rest of san francisco has and that it's spread out equitably including the people bho were impacted when they didn't get to share in the first round of san francisco [inaudible] and you can only think like that when you have an institutional memory that lasts only four years so i'm here to support mr. singh as well as some of the other commissioners but red took off of work to support this man because he's always in the corner of people to try to benefit these neighborhoods. >> thank you, mr. king, any other members that wish to comment on items 1-3? >> chester williams, hp unity from the bayview area and i'm
