and a tool embedded in the website. lower case productions is a san francisco based small business enter price, micro, local business enter price and they are prior working experience with oci and san francisco redevelopment agency. that means they desig designed e transbay requests for documents dating back almost ten years ago so they havago. they have worked with local government and they know what we are about. they have extensive gog of the
5:01 am
city's management system and this is crucial because the new website will be on drupple so that will save some time and is an easier migration. i will move on to a few examples of the lower case's portfolio. this is a piece designed by them in 2014. it's very clear and you can see the detailed map on the left and the right and you can see each project with a rendering, just to give you an idea of how their design works and the work they have done in the past.
5:02 am
moving forward this is public work's home page. you can cycle through the images and right there it has easily identifiable menu links and this is something that we are trying to emulate emulate and move tows because right now our site looks nothing like this. another example is the office of expect planning. you get to the landing page and it's hard to feel lost because all that information is right there as you are going too the site. this is the contract terms.
5:03 am
commission approve will authorize a personal services contract with lower case protections in an amount not to exceed $100,000 for web development services to revamp the oci website. work will commence meetly and will terminate after completion of face it is i and ii. phase i from fiscal year 2017-2018 funding and that will tackle the side scrub so they will go in and determine how to best migrate it to the platform and there will be contract strategy involved. i think we are going to go through and figure out if we can
5:04 am
do things better and communicate with the public better. last part of phase 1 is information architecture. phase ii is coming from fiscal year 2018-2019 and there will be a lot of back and forth with our staff and lower case's to make sure that we are getting what we want and they are able to provide that and there will be focus groups helds and things of that nature so members of the staff will be making those eggs decisions not just a small number of people. they will train relevant oci staff to make sure we have an idea how to update in an easier manner.
5:05 am
the work will commence tomorrow with general on boarding if the submission approves the contract and by august 1 we would like to have a phase i scope of services on the way to being completed and the fall we will have focus groups and provide feedback. that will be the longest part of that process because it's determining what we want on this site. winter, spring, 2019 engineering the site and starting to get fuller mock-ups and frames and then summer they will train us how to make the updates to the overhauled site. fall 2019 we plan on launching a
5:06 am
modern day website. looking at a 12 month to 15 month buildout. that concludes my presentation. i will be happy to answer any questions and jennifer from lower case is right here and she will be doing the technical questions if you have them. thank you very much. >> chair mondejar: thank you m max. are there any speaker cards? >> >>clerk: no speaker cards madame chair. >> chair mondejar: we will close public comment. mr. singh. commissioner singh. >> commissioner singh: i am not very good at the computers but what is that system? >> drupple is a content management system thinking that you see online is hosted by a content management system and
5:07 am
drupple is one that the city currently employs and it's a template that is very customizable. you don't have to follow exactly what drop tells yowhat drupple . our current site is on drupple. if we were to switch to a word press site, the buildout takes longer and that will slow down the process. >> chair mondejar: commissioner bustos.
5:08 am
>> commissioner bustos: this is long overdue. i have had trouble navigating through the website. i am excited about it, so with that comes expectations. you have heard me talk about the wow factor. i would love for us to have a wow factor that when people come on to our will be site they are going to be so wowed by not only the visuals but the content and it will make people want to visit frequently. jennifer as you guys are all thinking about this, know that is something i think this commission is going to be looking for is the wow and i think that is something that will be good for you as a showcase when you go to bid for other projects to be able to say whicthis is what we did for ocid city and county of san francisco that is a wow that would encourage people to come back to a website over and over again for information.
5:09 am
i hope we are able to do that. >> we can going to do our best. as time goes by and we are moving to the actually design process; we would love to have you involved in that process as well. we will send you mock-ups and you can put in your two cents as well so we make sure we are doing what you would like us to do. >> i like the topics o that are easily navigable. i am assuming we are going to do links to mayor's office of housing? >> oh, yeah. >> i think a lot of people when they hear the mayor's office of housing they sometimes throw up their hands and say oh my god that is too much information and
5:10 am
it would be nice if we could be not a carbon copy of what they have or a simple link but maybe a little more showcasing or distinguishing what we offer. >> the mayor's office of housing is on the template all of these agencies have to follow the same constraints on we are remember site. when you go to the site and you see the golden gate bridge and that template. we will be able to go away from that. we will having something cleaner and more of a wow factor and you will able to find how to apply for affordable housing.
5:11 am
>> chair mondejar: first of all, finally, we have bee have been g for this, so appreciate that and a lot of thought that seems has gone into this, but i would like to make suggestions. i have been asking for sample of art work. you know all of the art work within ocii and the redevelopment agency i would love to have a list of where are these beautiful art pieces within the ocii redevelopment properties and then the community, the open spaces. i met a young man an for some reason he knows where the open spaces are, seriously, he was still in high school and his mom said talk to him he has been to
5:12 am
this and he showed me on his phone all the open spaces, so it would be one place to have that because after all it's part of this project and i think it's important that we have at least a list and maybe a nice active map where there are dots of where it is because we spent a lot of money on this and our developers have also done that and it's something to be proud of. i hope that we can incorporate that and somehow be interactive. i don't know if we need to add more money. >> the 100,000 was a contingency of 14, 980 built in so if we are participating of wanting to add things so trying to prepare as
5:13 am
beas possible. to your point about the list of art work, i will have to have aa conversation with jennifer, that would be just adding another doubt. that would be good. >> chair mondejar: a wow factor we can actually find things and find the documents and the information tor link to where we need to be instead of trying to go through so many. you know what it's lining and then you forgot where you started because you have so many pages in your computer you forgot where you started. of course the information the good things that we are doing that this commission has been doing through the years that would be great if we are being proactive and so i know that you are going to be on top of this
5:14 am
mr. barns, so we are looking forward to this oversight and working with lower case productions and so thank you. we need a exhaustion to approve this. moved by commissioner singh and seconded by commissioner rosales. please call the role.

5:17 am
relates to each classification and benchmark salaries to the city. [. [reading] ing] establishes the rate for represented employees that have been negotiated. it also represents the unrepresented staff for salaries to match the salary rules and ordinance as well. negotiations are held between ocii executive management staff, local, and representatives. the salary resolution comes with ocii salary chart that provides the salary rates listed in biweekly, hourly as well as
5:18 am
extended range in play fo pay. the salary chart is required by calpers to be made publicly available on ocii website. approval to correct five classification salaries benchmarked to city and county of san francisco with current incumbent employees on our salary chart. second, changes of the scope of duty for work of two classifycations, human resources manager and add principle analyst. on the chart you can see the
5:19 am
salaries between a and b. while we were presenting for the cost of living increases for staff, we came across abnormalities of five classification salaries not comparable with the city and county of san francisco. because of this we sought adistance and he found the same findings that we found. because we have incumbents in these five we wanted to keep them the same. for these five classifications the proposessed salary charts are listed as line a and b. line a for employees that were hired before june 30, 2018 and line b will indicate for employees hired after july 1, 2018.
5:20 am
we net with local 1021 and 1041 and explained how this will not hurt those in this classification. [ reading] the next item we are seeking approval on is scope of work. the human resources manager is based on disillusion and position overseeing the hr department and administrative services department.

5:23 am
>> average salary range for the five positions we are talking about range from as long as $150 to at least $1,150. >> commissioner singh: comparab? >> yeses the. each tied to comparable city and we saw these were off so hired outside analysis to come in and look at our work and they agreed the same and we didn't want to harm the employee so we created a line b to project the employee for line a so they would not be stuck at this salary and will
5:24 am
get the cost of living increase along with the other staff. i hope that answers you question. >> commissioner singh: okay. >> >> commissioner rosales: tha. i just had a question. am i reading this correctly that there is 101 positions? >> correct. they are not all filled. >> >> commissioner rosales: that was my next question. i just want to know what is our current how many employees? >> 151. >> >> commissioner rosales: fulm e? >> one or two that are part-time. >> >> commissioner rosales: so we have approximately 50 percent.

5:30 am
twitter feed and our facebook page so that, and thank you, please keep us abreast and we need to let the public know we are doing our best to make sure that the safety of the residents of, and the workers of the shipyard are taken care of. thank you, madam director. >> please call the next item. >> next order of business is item 9, commissioner's questions and matters. madam chair. >> yes, commissioner bustos. >> commissioner bustos: i want to publicly acknowledge we have a mayor-elect who actually sat on this board as a member of the redevelopment commission. and who understands our work intimately. it was actually at that time commissioner breed and myself and commissioner king and commissioner singh to allow the certificates of preference passed on so more people could
5:31 am
come to san francisco, come back to their roots and i would love for us through the director to send a note of congratulations to the mayor-elect from the body that she once sat on and then maybe we could all sign it. i think that would be a nice little touch for us to be able to let her know we are still here, and that we are still doing the good work. so, i would like to acknowledge that publicly, i hope we can do that. >> commissioner bustos, yes, congratulations to mayor-elect london breed. maybe do it better and meet up with former commissioner, london breed and new mayor-elect london breed. thank you. any other commissioner -- >> i was there with her in sunset district on last thursday, so it's, you know, we open up our office there. >> you were -- >> yeah. >> which office was this?
5:32 am
>> london breed, sunset office. >> oh, yeah. >> what you call the campaign office. >> the campaign office, yes, thank you. >> thank you. any other comments? >> i have a question. unrelated. >> but i see that mr. lee is not here i'll ask it anyway, and perhaps get an answer later. does -- does this commission or the prior redevelopment agency, did it have any policy, small business policy that was applicable to our tenants? the tenants -- not our tenants, but the tenants in our developments? like, let's say -- >> i'm sorry, for tenants improvements, no? never?
5:33 am
>> it depends on the particular project, but for the most part, the obligations of the builder of the project are for the owners' improvements as distinct from tenant improvements that come in later by a third party or another party that is either leasing or possibly even buying the condo in a building. so, for the most part, it's the owner's obligation to comply with s.b.e. and that's where we have direct enforcement. there is a question, i suppose, where the owner is building what is finishing certain areas, what might otherwise be considered tenant improvements, but the owner will occupy it. our position would be in that case the owner was duly obligated to follow the s.b.e. requirements for contracting and work force. but in the true tenant improvement context, we don't,
5:34 am
our policies don't extend that far. >> ok. maybe, and we can talk -- i'm not sure i caught that second tier that, i understand t owner part, but i thought -- i might have heard you say something, maybe an exception to the general rule or the general policy or positions that the owner does not dictate to tenants essentially how to, any policy regarding using small businesses or local hire for their build-out? >> right. and we don't require it in our policies. >> but is there a possibility, i thought i might have misunderstood you, might be a room under certain circumstances where the owner would -- would be subject? >> owner is building indirectly for their event occupancy. >> for their eventual occupancy, that's the part i missed, ok.
5:35 am
>> i mean, we would interpret that situation to be covered by s.b.e. >> i've got it, thank you. >> thank you. should we call the next item, please? >> next order of bids, closed session, no closed session item. and the next is 11, add jourm t jourment -- adjournment. >> i now close the meeting, 2:39 p.m. .
5:36 am
>> neighborhood in san francisco are also diverse and fascist as the people that inhabitable them we're in north beach about supervisor peskin will give us a tour and introduce is to what think of i i his favorite district 5 e 3 is in the
5:37 am
northwest surrounded by the san francisco bay the district is the boosting chinatown oar embarcadero financial district fisherman's wharf exhibit no. north beach telegraph hill and part of union square. >> all of san francisco districts are remarkable i'm honored and delighted to represent really whereas with an the most intact district got chinatown, north beach fisherman's wharf russian hill and knob hill and the northwest waterfront some of the most wealthier and inning e impoverished people in san francisco obgyn siding it is ethically exists a bunch of tight-knit neighborhoods people
5:38 am
know he each other by name a wonderful placed physically and socially to be all of the neighborhoods north beach and chinatown the i try to be out in the community as much as and i think, being a the cafe eating at the neighborhood lunch place people come up and talk to you, you never have time alone but really it is fun hi, i'm one the owners and is ceo of cafe trespassing in north beach many people refer to cafe trees as a the living room of north beach most of the clients are local and living up the hill come and meet with each other just the way the united states been since 1956 opposed by the grandfather a big people person people had people coming since the day we opened. >> it is of is first place on
5:39 am
the west that that exposito 6 years ago but anyone was doing that starbuck's exists and it created a really welcoming pot. it is truly a legacy business but more importantly it really at the take care of their community my father from it was formally italy a fisherman and that town very rich in culture and music was a big part of it guitars and sank and combart in the evening that tradition they brought this to the cafe so many characters around here everything has incredible stories by famous folks last week the cafe that paul carr tennessee take care from the jefferson starship hung out the cafe are the famous poet
5:40 am
lawrence william getty and jack herb man go hung out. >> they work worked at a play with the god fathers and photos he had his typewriter i wish i were here back there it there's a lot of moving parts the meeting spot rich in culture and artists and musicians epic people would talk with you >> i'm rebecca and i'm a violinist and violin teacher. i was born here in san francisco to a family of cellists,
5:41 am
professional cellists, so i grew up surrounded by a bunch of musical rehearsals an lessons. all types of activities happened in my house. i began playing piano when i was 4. i really enjoyed musical activities in general. so when i was 10, i began studying violin in san francisco. and from there, i pretty much never stopped and went on to study in college as well. that's the only thing i've ever known is to have music playing all the time, whether it is someone actually playing next to you or someone listening to a recording. i think that i actually originally wanted to play flute and we didn't have a flute. it's always been a way of life. i didn't know that it could be any other way. >> could you give me an e over here. great. when you teach and you're seeing
5:42 am
a student who has a problem, you have to think on your feet to solve that problem. and that same kind of of thinking that you do to fix it applies to your own practice as well. so if i'm teaching a student and they are having a hard time getting a certain note, they can't find the right note. and i have to think of a digestible way to explain it to them. ee, d, d, e. >> yes. then, when i go on to do my own practice for a performance, those words are echoing back in my head. okay. why am i missing this? i just told somebody that they needed to do this. maybe i should try the same thing. i feel a lot of pressure when i'm teaching young kids. you might think that there is less pressure if they are going on to
5:43 am
study music or in college that it is more relaxing. i actually find that the opposite is true. if i know i'm sending a high school student to some great music program, they're going to get so much more instruction. what i have told them is only the beginning. if i am teaching a student who i know is going to completely change gears when they go to college and they never will pick up a violin again there is so much that i need to tell them. in plain violin, it is so difficult. there is so much more information to give. every day i think, oh, my gosh. i haven't gotten to this technique or we haven't studies they meese and they have so much more to do. we only have 45 minutes a week. i have taught a few students in some capacity who has gone on to study music. that feels anaysing. >> it is incredible to watch how they grow. somebody can make amazing project from you know, age 15 to
5:44 am
17 if they put their mind to it. >> i think i have 18 students now. these more than i've had in the past. i'm hoping to build up more of a studio. there will be a pee ono, lots of bookshelves and lots of great music. the students will come to my house and take their lessons there. my schedule changes a lot on a day-to-day basis and that kind of keeps it exciting. think that music is just my favorite thing that there is, whether it's listening to it or playing it or teaching it. all that really matters to me is that i'm surrounded by the sounds, so i'm going top keep doing what i'm doing to keep my life in that direction.
5:45 am
>> hi. welcome to san francisco. stay safe and exploring how you can stay in your home safely after an earthquake. let's look at common earthquake myths. >> we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. we have 3 guest today. we have david
5:46 am
constructional engineer and bill harvey. i want to talk about urban myths. what do you think about earthquakes, can you tell if they are coming in advance? >> he's sleeping during those earthquakes? >> have you noticed him take any special? >> no. he sleeps right through them. there is no truth that i'm aware of with harvey that dogs are aware of an impending earthquake. >> you hear the myth all the time. suppose the dog helps you get up, is it going to help you do something >> i hear they are aware of small vibrations. but yes, i read extensively that dogs cannot realize earthquakes. >> today is a spectacular day in san francisco and sometimes people would say this is
5:47 am
earthquake weather. is this earthquake weather? >> no. not that i have heard of. no such thing. >> there is no such thing. >> we are talking about the weather in a daily or weekly cycle. there is no relationship. i have heard it's hot or cold weather or rain. i'm not sure which is the myth. >> how about time of day? >> yes. it happens when it's least convenient. when it happens people say we were lucky and when they don't. it's terrible timing. it's never a good time for an earthquake. >> but we are going to have one. >> how about the ground swallowing people into the ground? >> like the earth that
5:48 am
collapsed? it's not like the tv shows. >> the earth does move and it bumps up and you get a ground fracture but it's not something that opens up and sucks you up into haddes. >> it's not going anywhere. we are going to have a lot of damage, but this myth that california is going to the ocean is not real. >> southern california is moving north. it's coming up from the south to the north. >> you would have to invest the million year cycle, not weeks
5:49 am
or years. maybe millions of years from now, part of los angeles will be in the bay area. >> for better or worse. >> yes. >> this is a tough question. >> those other ones weren't tough. >> this is a really easy challenge. are the smaller ones less stress? >> yes. the amount released in small earthquakes is that they are so small in you need many of those. >> i think would you probably have to have maybe hundreds of magnitude earthquakes of 4.7. >> so small earthquakes are not making our lives better in the future? >> not anyway that you can count on. >> i have heard that buildings
5:50 am
in san francisco are on rollers and isolated? >> it's not true. it's a conventional foundation like almost all the circumstances buildings in san francisco. >> the trans-america was built way before. it's a pretty conventional foundation design. >> i have heard about this thing called the triangle of life and up you are supposed to go to the edge of your bed to save yourself. is there anything of value to that ? >> yes, if you are in your room. you should drop, cover and hold onto something. if you are in school, same thing, kitchen same thing. if you happen to be in your bed, and you rollover your bed, it's not a bad place to be.
5:51 am
>> the reality is when we have a major earthquake the ground shaking so pronounced that you are not going to be able to get up and go anywhere. you are pretty much staying where you are when that earthquake hits. you are not going to be able to stand up and run with gravity. >> you want to get under the door frame but you are not moving to great distances. >> where can i buy a richter scale? >> mr. richter is selling it. we are going to put a plug in for cold hardware. they are not available. it's a rather complex. >> in fact we don't even use the richter scale anymore. we use a moment magnitude. the richter scale was early technology. >> probably a myth that i hear most often is my building is just fine in the loma prieta
5:52 am
earthquake so everything is fine. is that true ? >> loma prieta was different. the ground acceleration here was quite moderate and the duration was moderate. so anyone that believes they survived a big earthquake and their building has been tested is sadly mistaken. >> we are planning for the bigger earthquake closer to san francisco and a fault totally independent. >> much stronger than the loma prieta earthquake. >> so people who were here in '89 they should say 3 times as strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an
5:53 am
occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage. when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for sustainability mission, even though the bikes are very minimal energy use. it still matters where the energy comes from and also part of the mission in sustainability is how we run everything, run our business. so having the lights come on with clean energy is important to us as well. we heard about cleanpowersf and learned they had commercial rates and signed up for that. it was super easy to sign up.
5:54 am
our bookkeeper signed up online, it was like 15 minutes. nothing has changed, except now we have cleaner energy. it's an easy way to align your environmental proclivities and goals around climate change and it's so easy that it's hard to not want to do it, and it doesn't really add anything to the bill.
