8:12 pm
2015 i'm really happy to have this hearing i'm just sad that considering the stories we've heard of jackie that would have happened 5 years ago i was deeply concerned about the loss of our children population to the that the three san francisco has the lowest percentage of children population in the entire country the board in 2014 became alerted and supported the 2014 children's fund known as prop c at the time to include our children, our families council to be created i get it. >> oh, to create a vision for children and families to succeed in san francisco i'm glad to report that mayor ed lee and our school
8:13 pm
superintendent has taken the goals seriously and recorded the results to the board next month like all of our colleagues on the board am troubled with the housing affordability for many years now our housing discussion for a long term if take the housing needs of families with children take into consideration ray hart for san francisco open government. the income level that was hearted breaking to me some time changes and population change but this thing the city has given up on serving the families population even though the presidential developments included 20 two bedrooms and sometime three bedrooms unit young couples and newborns were moving out of the city as we may as well place a sign you know those signs when our
8:14 pm
enter into the city for the freeways and so forth it says well to san francisco maybe below we need to put a sign that says families with children not welcome especially for those that are low and middle-income i started asking about the family housing i found out a few things affordable housing developers were better at building spaces for families they were clearly not building enough of them developers were not building them developers know how to build them and family-friendly housing and in the next 10 years 0 san francisco population is projected to grow by 200 thousand moaning we may have an additional 26 thousand more zero a 18 where are they going to live and san francisco didn't
8:15 pm
have my official language defining family housing that's why i ask city planning to start this exercise by flushing out the elements they make for family-friendly housing i also asked staff to explore the policy ideas the nice thing some cities in the country and all around the world have explored the family-friendly design and developed tools with the sglz and works to encourage housing for families it is good to know we can have to start from scratch the planning department staff and i have present the draft paper to several bodies and corrected the feedback along the way the groups are the planning commission, spur, family support network and other stakeholders so the version we
8:16 pm
have today has had the benefit of collect minds i want to as many policy idea to be included in the report because regardless of if i personally agree or disagree with the specification we support the fred blackwell is too important to leave any idea off the table a time to dissect and analysis the mirror of each of idea to fully debate them in the future we need to look at how to make the units in the largest development more family-friendly for the sake of simple mrirt for large development are one hundred or more units overall they'll be part of the larger developments and high-rises in the year 2015
8:17 pm
housing inventory report that 4 thousand 1 hundred units were building permit approved for at issue at the time 62 percent of those new units were in buildings greater than 200 and 50 units meaning the units that are being built were built in high-rises i'll give you one example doesn't take a rocket scientist in 2016 the mission rock development was approved that development is building 15 hundred units so we need to look at that we also need to discuss how we can also push for more family-friendly housing in smaller elements like the
8:18 pm
duplications and try perplexes built 200 years ago and bring those things back today, i hope to the presentation we will inform our future building about how the family-friendly housing for about children especially for that those that are low income and middle-income we have passed a policy resolution to ask the planning department to officially include what the definition officially include with a definition of family-friendly housing that the elements that make investments family-friendly by design onto the general plan what are these elements? what are policies we need to consider? what more can we do every single day to attack the families to our city
8:19 pm
let's focus those on the bigger decision without the merits of bigger legislation before us i want to thank john rahaim and his planning department staff that worked on that paper and susan, and sheila i lost wanted to thank my staff jim leo for working on this effort as well i want to right now i'm going to turn it over to john rahaim the director of the planning department thank you i need to explain the order of the hearing thank you supervisor yee okay. so we will have a 10 minute presentation from the planning department and then we will open up to public comment testimony so after questions from the board members and
8:20 pm
possibly supervisor yee so director rahaim so, please come forward >> john rahaim with the planning department i want to thank supervisor yee for his leadership and a member of our families our children council it is a valuable forum over and over for those issues and reiterate to susan and others and my office for pulling this together and putting it together i'm going to go through introductions and sue about give you a little bit of background and i'm come back with possible solutions we think there are there's data we gathered on this issue as well as what we think are barriers to this issue and the potential problems i want to emphasis that the attracting the families with children to the city is not just about housing this presentation today is about housing but we think there are 5 broader buckets we need to be
8:21 pm
addressing as a city their listed and obviously family-friendly housing is the key one we'll talk about today and obviously childcare and schools are important and access to parks and open space and recreation and transportation and, of course, safe and clean neighborhood they're important to addressing the families to the city today, our focus is on housing i'm going to turn it over to sue and come back with wrap up. >> good afternoon, supervisors with the planning department staff so why do we want to retain families in the city a couple of benefits we've outlined sustainability and public health benefits to allow the children with different transportation modes in the environment and a city for all that is safe for our most vulnerable population our youth and population that creates a city that is safe for everyone the cultural diversity the kids provide the diversity
8:22 pm
and benefits in this diverse environment a able to age in place as you go through different life stages and have kids we in san francisco have been known as a city with the fewest number of households with children of new city thought country a button of 18 percent of our households have kids and this is vicinity of december any look at new york and la their opposite end the spectrum not co-related with dense as the percentage of kids the city has that graph shows the total population in red and our child population in blue i often get the question is that the case have we lost children that happens around 1990 and 80 hit the mark of 20 percent of households and under this is
8:23 pm
dips and peaks here and there you can't tell from this i'll talk about in a second the increase from 2009 a 2014 we are starting to see this line in family population increase we wanted to get agree look at what your families look like what is the compositions that is income data using 2014 constant dollars it changes from 2000 to 2014 how is the change then i think this is something we've talked about the significant increase in the waesht it family over one and 50 thousand and also you see the dip in those other families the families making between 25 and $100,000 over time also want to look at what the racial and its this is data from 2014 which is most negotiate the
8:24 pm
increase in the white population and the decrease in the asian and the black population this is the population of our kids in the city and then look at where our kids live this data is here showing the explanation so the concentration for the number of households in the neighborhood that have children bayview between 20 and thirty percent of households having children but the absolute numbers as you can see there are a number of kids downtown and neighborhood we don't think of having a lot of children so where are we going to go from here what this is what our population looks like we have a cohort in the 20 to thirty-year-old is a millennial population we want to see if this is a increase in population when they people have children
8:25 pm
the average age is 33 we want to see this well studied generation that is expressing on want for driving the market where are they going next. so working with sfusd is one source of data projections and they have proejtd that they expect a significant increase in enrollment from 2014 to 2028 this is our high and low projections they will increase from 23 hundred and 60 to over seven hundred thousand kids in the sfusd district we wanted to look at the cities what they're doing in this area so we looked at vancouver portland and northwest and over australia how to make the misrepresent living better and so with that, we identified 3 barriers to accommodating
8:26 pm
families with children affordability, the size of units, and the child family-friendly features i'll go through each of those right now i think that is something we're all familiar with the affordability this for a medium family of one and two thousand dollars that family what purchase is a house that is prices as three hundred and 91 thousand and the medium price in 2015 was nine hundred a 6 hundred thousand gap that same family will rent a unit that has costs about $3,000 and the medium rental price is $4,800 dollars one other look at affordability this graph that shows in 2015 we took a snapshot
8:27 pm
of for sale the listing price of a two bedroom unit and found what was most favorable for the families making one and two thousand dollars 9 percent of unit that are listed met the criteria james that unable has gotten worse since 2015 the next barrier the size of unit so this data represents from 2005 and after 2005 and what you see i think most notably the shift from the large 3 plus to smaller studios the one and 2 have stayed steady as is number of units built another thing we wanted to do in relation with the fact it is obviously the vast that majority of housing we want to understand where our families are living on
8:28 pm
the color of bottom of graph that is families they're living in studios one bedroom and 0 two bedroom and three bedroom i want to understand how we're looking this and who is living in if a little bit better that he finally we talked about another barrier that is the child's family-friendly features the image on the left compared to the image on the right two developments how they've chosen to look at the features in the courtyard space i'm going to turn it over to john to talk about what what we can do >> i will try to do this quickly just to wrap up 5 areas of that we should proceeded to understand and to move forward with this issue one is to understand to stabilize the existing housing to adapt and allow the flexibility in the housing stock
8:29 pm
for more child friendly features to understand the existing housing authority no matter how much housing stock families live in the existing housing we don't knows who is live and work in the housing the make up of overseeing families the incomes and so on we want to better understand that to move forward secondly, we are working sdem with many of our offices as well as the mayor's office on stabilizing the existing housing stock our work in the mission the 2020 plan was adapted all are intended to help to stableize the housing stock and want to expand that allowing flexibility and other example, of course, is the adu legislation that you have voted and the state mandated we think allowing for accessary dwellings is one way of keeping people in
8:30 pm
their homes and allowing a more flexibility in the type and style of housing stock and, of course, looking at child friendly features 3 scales the neighborhood, the building scale and the neighborhood scale i'll wrap up there is a full discussion of missing middle the middle-income and the certain types of housing that was once built often not built today, we want explore those the immediate next steps the resource guide to actually work with the developers an child friendly features to study the prelims and move forward with the existing housing study with that, i'll close i'm available to answer any questions. >> thank you mr. rahaim can you talk about the missing housing. >> shoourl housing i mean it is
8:31 pm
really two ways to talk about that middle-income housing which clearly the income level that is at least served by the type of housing for example, many of the types of building two or three story buildings in neighborhoods in the 210 east and 30's many of them mixed in with single-family and we think there are solutions we can look at that will allow this type of housing to go into somewhat lower density neighborhood in strategic locates for more family-friendly and affordable courtyard and housing more generous backyard and roof decks this sort of mill height and middle density, if you will, not been built in the city many a very long time. >> thank you and last question before i open up to my colleagues here
8:32 pm
did you do now work around the numbers in terms of missing income layer at planning. >> we certainly are the numbers in terms of the housing supply that we're building and . >> exactly. >> i don't have those with me today i believe the percentages are quite low and i'm sorry not the housing supply but in the pipeline build but missing in the pipeline in terms of exploring middle-income and we know that some of that supervisor the middle-income we don't track middle-income housing we only track blow a certain level typically from the market what housing and, postage that but the number we know in terms of meeting our goals on each income level the levels that are at least being compromised right now.
8:33 pm
>> thank you supervisor ronen. >> yes. thank you for the report definitely many interesting components he noticed how thin the discussion of forgot was in the report you admitted that was a - the issue that is eclipsing others and family see are finding it difficult to live in this city i was surprised that is my interested area and we would have benefited from the affordable housing and what we can do that that .
8:34 pm
8:35 pm
>> - it is not one magic solution to increasing the stock
8:36 pm
of affordable housing but look at all the measures and certainly willing to look at more detail. >> in a report for housing four children none of those issues are mentioned it is a glaring absent from the report. >> thank you supervisor ronen supervisor peskin thank you, madam president i was interested in the 5 or of slide depending on how you count the slides the challenging composition of families by in case and further to what supervisor ronen said it is and given the backdrop of inclusionary conversation that we're all having and that your commission is about to hadirect rahaim it you look at this lied one profound thing the surprise surprise is growing remarkable between 2014 and the highest
8:37 pm
bracket has shot up and the lowest bracket is up so the rich are richer and the poor is poorer no question about that but the folks making the families making $50,000 or less account for 28 percent the folks making one thousand dollars or more are almost 50 percent not to put two fine a point but thirty percent are making over one and 50 that middle slices i'm in no way quibbling that we need to provide housing for middle-income families but that middle thing between 50 and one hundred accounts is the smarter of those 3 categories at the 23 percent so i take a issue with everything focused at the middle
8:38 pm
believe me as the co-sponsor of prop c that added a requirement for middle-income housing it is certainly something i want to address and indeed trying to address but so far as we're looking at the spices of pie more families making under 50 then between 50 and one hundred i wanted to say that on the overview the conversation we're about do engage if. >> thank you supervisor malia cohen's commissioner tang pursue thank you. i want to thank supervisor yee for xhaej the planning department staff on this work i mean, i hear loud and clear with supervisor peskin said but i'll say we certainly know there are many families that really don't qualify for the programs we have here in san francisco i do feel
8:39 pm
that given some of the information we've seen the fact that you know other pages of this presentation the skyrocketing number of studios and one bedrooms units that are built have been built since 2005 than typically built that is a problem we've been trying to provide for more accountable student housing and lower the anytime's square footage we creating other problems; right? not allowing for some of the families with children to be able to continue to live in two bedrooms or three bedrooms units that's part of important mix i don't have have questions but i'll be curious to follow the guidelines that i think you'll be putting out in family-friendly amenities for you future development i've been trying to incorporate into the
8:40 pm
home sf we should incentivizes and encourage that whenever possible i don't know what we can do i'm sorry. >> that's not a page number we're looking at the unit size we can also do in terms of aside from the hope sf program to insure that moving forward we're not just building san francisco's and one bedroom types of buildings. >> exemplary i'm getting over a cold we have reminded for a number of two bedrooms we are considering changes to that that is important to point out the vast majority of cities affordable housing programs today are oriented towards people .55 percent of ami or lower because of the low income go tax programs that subsidies the housing another 50 percent
8:41 pm
of ami or lower we're in a catch-22 with federal and local programs certainly only that income level today and we know there will be robust debate how much of city's program should, closest to low income housing. >> how w can we address do skyrocketing increase in the number of studios and guess one bedrooms are not increasing but the studios i mean have i mean looks like tripled the amount that were built between 2005 i can require more two bedrooms or three bedrooms but understand the economics what some developers tell me as san francisco heirs prices for a three bedroom you can buy a single-family in san francisco i don't know what to those numbers are real or not a demand for
8:42 pm
them in misrepresent family building i don't know the specifics i've been asking the questions of developers for 5 years no, not more three bedrooms unit that is often the answer he get it is a question of looking at the economics of those things we want to understand a little bit better if we could unreasonable require three bedrooms and four bedrooms and what is the occasion for that. >> well, i'll not ask any more questions but we'll continue to engage in this conversation about our missing middle. >> what that means and everyone has a different idea of middle and moderate under the circumstances i call the roll. >> have my own ideas but thank you for working on this report. >> supervisor tang thank you. i couldn't agree with you more 55 percent of ami that is a
8:43 pm
family of 4 making roughly $59,000 a year anything above that typically a family of $460,000 they can't qualify for many affordable housing that's at the heart of conversation we're talking about middle-income sadly, a low income category inform a family of four without the support of affordable housing typically find an affordable place to stay we're not building more market-rate so a problem we have and need to deal with that supervisor safai. >> supervisor breed took all my comments i'm kidding this is an interesting part of the conversation you do have a lot of time in our presentation i
8:44 pm
had questions about the i think that is interesting to see that over thirty percent of our housing authority is what families are living from our data so over thirty percent the families in our excited housing authority are living in three bedrooms or more so i don't know if you want to talk a little bit about and you didn't have time to talk about was not just necessarily the missing middle-income families but the type of housing in terms of towns and the bungalow what that means we haven't dug into that conversation even though type and style of housing effects the teaches people that is targeted toward and people that live that there can you talk a little bit about talking about that i want to hear more. >> if i can address the second
8:45 pm
point first excuse me. one the fundamental things we look at is the whether a project has kind of protected child friendly open space high-riseings building have open space that is protected if streets has simply have more children is it a fundamental issue and particularly we'll you talk about this in the design manual open space that has eyes from shared space like a laundry room an immediate benefit for those their attracted to those kinds of buildings few buildings are designed that way because of incentives of marketing that's one example how the buildings can be looked at many other faster than and storage is another for bicycles,
8:46 pm
storage important strollers all the things that housing didn't have those are features we can build into the projects. >> i meant going to your slide the one that says missing middle we don't see a lot of this type of housing built you don't see a lot of duplications and supervisor yee was saying in his opening comment try perplexes and courtyards can you can you talk a little bit about from a planning perspective how you can design that encourage the developers to build that a. >> it is a combination the zoning works people the developers are typically max out the zoning so you can build two family units in an rh-2 but the development in rh-2 because of
8:47 pm
build out to it requires the removal of typical housing we don't like to do that one question that is a somewhat pro-vodka questions but strategy places in rh-1 or rh-2 we can allow large buildings like the photographs on this page to allow higher density building in lower e district i'm simply suggesting something we can look at otherwise given the land economics of that city developers will max out everything in the current zoning envelope. >> right what about the idea of accessary dwelling accessary dwelling or rear yard set back requirement but oftentimes people want to expand but have open space and light and air and might be no one an affordable
8:48 pm
way for rh-1 or rh-2 or rh-3. >> we certainly encourage the adu's they're not allowed in some districts we think those can be compromised and provide for the open space of the light and air but we're looking at that as well. >> okay and then the only thing i want to point out that is something i'm proud of we talk about that a lot you look at the map where the children are located and the pure numbers on the map in district 10 and 11 the highest concentrations under the age of 18 that is the highest rate of owner you opted out homes. >> thank you supervisor safai supervisor fewer yes, thank you i have a couple of questions so in my neighborhood seniors we have a lot of rh-2 and rh-1 homes and rh-3 actually in my
8:49 pm
neighborhood with the richmond there are seniors that live in single-family homes that maybe no longer appropriate for them or meets their needs or not safe i want to explore that to build senior housing and allow our elders to allow them to live in the neighborhood. >> same time have a way to purchase their single-family homes for families with children. >> what do you think about a. >> it is an idea worth exploring. >> when i'm looking we're talking about this middle so i'm looking about the ratio i'm looking at the changing composition of children in san francisco an increase in the wealth it families as this slide shows we see a stark decrease in the black families with black
8:50 pm
children in san francisco i need more democrat graphic information who are living in the 3 and 4 and 5 bedroom homes who are those families building in there and who are the families living in studios and one bedrooms with three children so i would like to know by in case like race this is a type of - i think when we are looking at this middle income are we have to look at race san francisco quite frankly we pride users on racial diversity that looking at this chart i have to say that is a appalling and i think that is called for alarm i think that, yes, we need to build for the middle but build to a encourage racial diversities instead of actually increase the out migration of
8:51 pm
people in san francisco we see that as the ratio in san francisco is while we see that there is an increase in the wealthiest families i think that someone who is building for families needs to build for all racial groups the average income and see if we can build to keep them here also 0 i don't think that that was actually mentioned and then i want to speak about office of economic workforce development development and what kind of jobs are we attracting after being on the school board for 8 years 90 percent of students are students of color and i think that you know as we look at this composition the families in to we have to keep in mind had we build we would
8:52 pm
like to build for as many families and coordinate the buildings and is density with actually, the opportunities for i don't remember from a public building new public schools and be sync with the development and development for those schools and given the lack of site so for affordable housing in any neighborhood most are small in the richmond's but promote the affordable housing on those sites. >> sorry you're asking what are the ways on a small site program it is primarily intended to be acquiring existing use the question we're looking at that as an - the existing small site program to require excuse me - and so the question given the lack of large sites more affordable housing development in any neighborhood the richmond what alternatives place to
8:53 pm
promote the production in any neighborhood the majority of the sites are small site program and one of the things how many units can be permitted in those sites whether zoning we can look at there or whether speak changes to yard requirements that accommodates some large units on those sites those are things we'll have to explore moving forward we need to understand more about the economics of this issue. >> which i don't know said the economics of building child friendly housing we need to understand more and one person spoke a minute ago about rebuilding knocking down buildings and repurposing them for more units in any district those are rent-controlled units those are buildings built in 19 it 2 and thirty that eliminates
