5:00 am
so thank you for that. i do want to echo some of the concerns we heard today and we're hearing this a lot on social media today in relation to the double right at folsom there's concerns with this being an issue with pedestrian safety and cyclist safety. i would ask for the team to look at the double-lane and if away want to build it hit but we're hoping you approve the proposal. >> commissioner: thank you very much. any further speakers. seeing none we'll close public comment and open it up for directors comments if there is any. and i want it ensure they add an
5:01 am
additional lane of people and how do we -- and people don't abide for these or what the rules happen to be? >> in providing a lane configuration that respond those current activity, my belief and judgment from my years doing this is that that will mostly solve that problem through design. now, i won't lie to you we'll still get violators. people get frustrate the queues and they engage in dangerous behaviors and they turn around the boarding island from 3rd
5:02 am
street and i cringe when i see it but it happens. i don't know we can eliminate that behavior. i don't agree provide second turn lane will encourage a de facto triple right-turn lane because the geometry doesn't lend itself to that. i also think it's important to understand we would not be proceeding if we weren't taking extra measures to protect pedestrians and in our view to improve pedestrian safety. does that help to answer? and you have less conflicts and most are going to the bay bridge. was that considered and if not, why not?
5:03 am
the central soma plan envisioned a one-way cycle track and envisioned moving the turn lanes and widening the sidewalks. the cost would be displacement of loading or traffic lanes and in tracts -- we were able to talk to merchants on three or four separate occasions an managed to get hold of people. there's little off-loading for small businesses. what i heard is they rely heavily on the curb-side loading. it's well used.
5:04 am
auto auto aa-and we can get rid of a lane of and on the have a bike lane you're looking at the impact. >> there's no way to do a floating lane or the old way of a lane next to the load ing? >> you could if you're pushing on the right side we're trying to get our transit lane out of the chaos near the corner. pretty soon you'd meet in the
5:05 am
middle it's a question of what do you warrant to prioritize what do you want to prioritize in the context? >> i don't know how bad it is along 3rd street. maybe it's part of a larger question and fundamentally that's where it's all going. i know there's other hov-only lane and i don't know -- it's a less pedestrian business
5:06 am
frequented way >> you see 400 cars going right at bryant it's because they're heading the hov line east of 2nd. >> i can't think the lane goes to bryant and you avoid turning onto 3rd if you go up bryant to hit the hov lane. >> if you're coming up bryant they cross over 3rd. and you see traffic coming from further south on mission bay and
5:07 am
it's growing even with all the investment we're making and great transit facilities growing traffic demand out of mission bay. if you think of how you get from 280 over to the bay bridge, a lot of them will get off at king and then you have actually triple-left-turn lane from king to 3rd and 3rd to the right lane opportunities to access the bay bridge. >> i'm trying to think of other ways to refunnel the traffic. i think the takeaway is we'd love to figure out how to better manage that situation. >> absolutely. >> commissioner: mr. brinkman. >> i intend to support this and see where you're going vice chair borden and where supervisor eaken is going and we need a way to turn off the tap of the cars.
5:08 am
thankfully the t.a. is studying that until we can turn the tap down on the cars we have to manage the flow of and that's what we need and want. i love the idea of a west side bike lane because when you look at the map 3rd street leads to kearny and that's a fantastic route for all the bikes trying to get across town. i intend to support this and i think you've done great work and it will help transit and pedestrians but at this point will not help cyclists. i know this could be a great route for cycling. it's not going happen in this iteration but there's nothing in this iteration that precludes that from happening in the future, is there? >> that's correct. you'd need to modify those.
5:09 am
those ray relatively minor expense. and i would not be remotely surprised if one of those are back before you talking about more changes to 3rd street. >> everybody's commented they want this, that, more and if, and but we need this for the transit improvement and pedestrian safety up -- improvements an more. we need congestion charging and some are hov vehicles because looking at the cars in downtown san francisco most are at 20% capacity with a driver and nobody else at least some are
5:10 am
hov. >> thank you for the work you've done on this and we'll probably be back for more on 3rd street i'm sure. >> commissioner: we have a motion and i'll ask for a second and won't cut off discussion. we have a second. is there further discussion? mrs. rubke. >> one of the public speakers mentioned intersection management. this is my neighborhood too so i know what she's talking about and understand the challenges but could you talk a little bit about that. if you have plans it goes down the project itself. >> south of market in particular on the bridge on ramps in the
5:11 am
afternoon is the heaviest deployment we have of parking control officers. we have as you heard because we're great at controlling the unpredictable movements around portal the same applies south of market. we don't have as many as we'd like. and every intersection downtown at a traffic cop can't quite get to the staffing level but i hear the comments and i know she's been vocal and persistent and clear we need to control the on ramps and i'm hoping we can provide a better level of staffing at 3rd and bryant and other intersections that are a big concern. >> it is the most direct route from caltrain to downtown.
5:12 am
i hear that myself and i brave that route. and we hear people say this is great and just a question in terms of the feasibility of coming back in the future and adding bike lanes. is there a reason it's more cost effective. looking at brannon street which is next on the agenda which is a lower-cost item to add in the bike lanes. is there a reason why there'd make more sense to add bike lanes now or as of the effectively later on? >> i apologize in advance for this without my planner designing the facility it's hard to say what the cost would be. in general, and this will sound silly but probably less so to
5:13 am
you than others, $14 million is relatively an inexpensive project for us. we're not pouring a lot of concrete and that allows us to build faster and cheaper. could you stripe and put in a facility, a version exists. whether you want a concrete barriers between parking and traffic lanes and the bike facility is a cost element you'd have to factor in that is more significant than restriping. you also quickly will get into signalling issues in that situation which is an expense a lot of people don't realize. we're replacing a lot of the signals but if you were introducing the added factor of bike signal particularly two-way cycle facility on the one-way street you're talking about a bike-only signals and it
5:14 am
involves more hardware at this point. there's a bike project as part of a relatively low-cost project i'm not sure it's the project people are talking about. >> commissioner: anything further if not we have a motion and second. all in favor please say aye. >> aye. >> anyone opposed? that passes. thank you very much. congratulations. move forward. >> clerk: item 12, approving traffic and modifications along brannon street and between delancy street and 8th street associate with the brannan street safety project.
5:15 am
>> good afternoon. i'm cameron beck in the subdivision and bringing you a proposal to improve safety on brannan street. brannon vete is highlighted in yellow and the above map of soma. the majoritiship -- majority is on the vision zero between 2nd street down it 8th street. the whole corridor from the embarcadero to division street about a mile and a half is undergoing infrastructure upgrades prompt a san francisco public works repaving project. so sfmta decided to take advantage of the paving project to design a safer brannan
5:16 am
street. the goals are prome air will focussed on -- primarily focussed on safety for all users and the projects anticipated along the cot -- corridor and this shows the typical configuration and two lanes in each direction and parking on both sides. so one very effective roadway safety treatment is to reduce travel lanes from four to three. this is typically called a road diet. it opens up space to stripe a dedicated bike lane. it shows the configuration with one lane in each direction separate a center lane and bike lanes would be installed in both directions an parking would remain on both sides. we will also use a suite of intersection treatment including upgrading to high visibility
5:17 am
continental crosswalks and keep vehicles from encroaching in the crosswalks and daylighting at crosswalks for better visibility. traffic signals will include head starts and signalling timing will be updated given today's transportation demand. >> -- to dive deeper into the road diets are an effective way to reach the city's vision zero goals by reducing collisions overall as well as reducing crash severity. an stall road diet clarify the roadway lanes so intersections are better managed and safer. at the intersection there will still be two lanes as there are today. the difference is the left lane will be a dedicated left-turn lane. this eliminates the stress and
5:18 am
last-minute maneuvering you experience today if you're attempting to go straight through but the driver in front of you decides to wait to make a left turn. road diets also reduce speeding when some vehicles go over the 25 mile-an-hour speed limit and the reducing the speed limit increases the chance of survivability in thecation -- in the case of accidents and make safer turns. this as a result of neighborhood meetings and we added commercial loading zones for the corridor, some parking will be removed along the corridor making room for turn pockets and better intersection visibility and 75%
5:19 am
of the parking spaces will be retained. some were concerned with the traffic adjustment we also heard about traffic enforcement. we shared the concerns with the enforcement counterparts and we're adding right-turn pockets to help address the concerns. pinterest global headquarters occupies three separate offices between 4th and 8th street and their employees often commute by foot or bike and typically walk between the various sites. they support the safety improvements proposed in the project and are committed to advocating for safety of their neighbors as well.
5:20 am
they anticipate the repaving to be done and the configuration would be activated during the summer and thank you for your time and i'd be happy to respond to questions. >> commissioner: are there any questions for cameron on this proposal? >> yes. thank you, good presentation. i see from the project plans wed between 8th street it's a parking protected bike line. >> i was home we'd have the closed captioning up here to sound you made. between 7th and 8th we have a parking protected bike lane. is that blocked because it's then connecting to the 8th street and 7th street bike route because the first question for everybody's going to be why is
5:21 am
the entire project not a parking protected bike infrastructure? >> yes, specifically between 7th and 8th, i put up the project plans on the overhead. i'll call that westbound. this came out of the outreach directly on the block. the north side of the street is airbnb's headquarters. they partner with ride-hailing companies to provide commute subsidies for their employees. so we already know there's a high percentage of ride hailing and drop offs and pick ups at the corner. the south side of the street where you see the mid block outs the street narrow so we were able to add in the protected bike lane knowing there's be intensified pick up.
5:22 am
>> there's nothing that precludes in the future this street getting a more up-to-date parking protected, bike lane in the future. >> there's nothing and in fact the central soma plan highlights brannan as one of the streets in that plan for further improvement. >> this is the first nibble at the street. thank you. >> any other questions? if not i'll call for public comment on this? hold on public comment for a moment. commission eaken you had a comment? >> that's exactly the right question. we know there are conflicts at the one intersection but i would imagine there's t.n.t. conflicts in terms of future projects there may arrive t.n.t. or other vehicle conflicts on the other sections. i just wonder if low-cost improvements have been
5:23 am
contemplated to mitigate the conflicts before they arise? >> yes. we're adding more loading zones and the existing zones in front of some of the buildings along the corridor those are something we're cognizant of and can add more loading space. one block of the project area doesn't have parking meters so they're a great way to manage the parking and loading so we'll be proposing to add meters at the one block. >> have we contemplated the boarding island much like we're doing on valencia street where we have the boarding island because of the school. have we contemplated more islands that are not necessarily associated with transit? >> no. this is an issue where we want
5:24 am
to build protected bike lanes and if we can figure out for drop offs and pick ups for boarding islands it would be better because people can get there and wait and it's a discernible place to say this is where i am. that's another challenge we have with the loading and unloading of t.n.t.s. they stop wildfire hay think the person is -- they think the person is and if we built these islands they would serve well for all kinds of pick ups and drop offs and for helping the drivers identify where to drop people off and pick them up opposed to all over the place they do now. >> i would say this project tries to get at that by looking at zones and times and places an extensions as we do more protected bike lanes we may see more island configurations but
5:25 am
as we look to how to manage the curb and how some use of the curb is evolving from storing a single vehicle to more pick up and drop off, this is all part of what we're looking at about how to change the way we manage the curb to accommodate that change and use of the curb. >> separately, if we could maybe bring that to the board some time to talk more holistically about that because i know there are other contemplations for small business so let's talk about it. >> to your point, vice chair borden the valencia street protected islands with bording islands for school drop offs serve exactly what you're talking about. i know staff was interested in watching how they'd perform. you're right, that could be a good -- >> commissioner: okay. now public comment. my apologies. >> clerk: natasha alfonzo and christen lackey and christen
5:26 am
rodgers. >> commissioner: welcome back. >> hello. i'm nasa ta sha alfonzo and the project is a follow the paving project which means the sfmta makes sure simple safety improvements could be installed. this inter-agency communication and coordination is not a standard practice and we wanted to recognize the city for doing that and thank them. it gives us quick action to reach vision zero so thank you again. the project includes important safety features including fewer vehicle lanes to cross and safer intersections an more time to cross. while they're all important, the project does not create a street that's safe for pedestrians the lack of mid-block crossings pose as a threat. it's known for long blocks and
5:27 am
alleyways that's why it identified long blocks and alleys that intersect the street people cross mid block and it's legal at most but it doesn't mean it's safe and it's the city's job to ensure safety. while this phase doesn't include the crossings we urge the city to prioritize the creation of the crossings along brannan and many community members are asking for this so we need to you meet our safety of needs when walking. >> commissioner: thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> clerk: kristin lackey. alice rodgers. >> good afternoon, directors. i'm a community organizer on staff at the san francisco bicycle coalition. i'm here on behalf of our 10,000 members to speak in support of the project. currently brannan is a large employment center and connects
5:28 am
8th, 7th, 2nd and soon 5th it's a candidate for new bicycle infrastructure. this project while not the highest quality of bike infrastructure it's a step in the right direction. at the core the road diet will make it safer for all modes including motorists and product the protected lanes and the mixing zones leave a lot to be desired and encourage staff to continue to work to make the hot spots safer. to be clear it will be a bike lane for confident riders only while newer riders will have to pre main on the protect -- remain to the protected bake line. thank you for your work. as more people start riding on brannan we look forward to bring class 4 protected bike lanes to the whole corridor. thank you. >> clerk: alice rodgers. >> good afternoon again,
5:29 am
commissioners. i live on south park and i mostly want to echo what walk san francisco natasha had said. note this is a project called safer brannan not safe brannan. i very much appreciate commissioner eaken's comments about mid block crossings. these are important. as the project manager mroet noted it allows -- noted it allows for high speed and it's important the one on jack lennon, there are two new buildings there. we're not going to be getting new high rises so the central soma plan will not be generating money in that area. so we desperately need crossings. there are people crossing for lunch at south park, kids, we have an increasingly aged community in the s.r.o.s in the
5:30 am
south park. "understand it can't be part and parcel of this plymouth project but hope you'll find a way soon to give real attention to the mid block crossings and the development has already happened if you can spotlight the funding. >> commissioner: thank you very much. any further speakers? seeing none we'll close public comment. directors, if there's any comments, please make them now otherwise i'll entertain a motion. >> motion to approve. >> commissioner: second? >> >> second. >> commissioner: all in favor please say aye. >> aye. >> commissioner: any opposed? all right. mr. beck, the same direction to you, onward and upward. congratulations an thank you. >> clerk: item 13 authorizing the director to approve
5:31 am
modificati modificati modificati modificati modification number 93 to contract number 1300 third street light rail program phase 2 central subway stations surface tract and system with the contracts of 1266-1 and 1266-2 with thales transport and security from tpc back to the sfmta and tncs design equipment procurement and operations start up and testing amend the definition for substantial completion for contract 1300 to relief tpc responsibility and atcs operations start-up and testing and reduce the amount of contract 1300 by $18,036,709. >> i'm albert ho the acting
5:32 am
program manager. roberta just stole most my thunder. i'm here for a contract modification to construction contract with tutor perini for work control. it was contemplated in 2014 when train control was actually awarded by this board and subsequently by to the board of supervisors to basically get design, procurement and installation and start and testing of train control within the central program. that work was awarded to the central subway and reassigned back to the contractor tutor r por -- perini. we're requesting for approval for delete a portion of that
5:33 am
work and the testing and elements and the contact will still maintain the installation of the equipment and then in doing so we'll want to re-assign it back to sfmta and central subway to have better management of the activities. part of the reason we're doing this is because based on the reassignment of the work for the last several years we've had some issues in terms of coordination between ourselves, train control and tutor perini contract where it's impacting our schedule and service delivery. by taking on this we're hoping to mitigate that element of work. we're asking basically to allow us to then take over and reassign this work back to the agency itself. with that, i'm willing to take any questions. >> commissioner: okay. any questions for mr. ho?
5:34 am
>> clerk: mr. chair there, is no public comment. no member of the public has submitted a speaker card. >> commissioner: we'll close public comment and given you've had your thunder stolen and answered all of you're questions in one fell swoop, i'll entertain a motion on this item. >> motion to approve. >> commissioner: is there a second? >> second. >> commissioner: all in favor please say aye. opposed? thank you very much, albert. >> clerk: item 14 discussion and vote pursuant to administrative code section to move to closed section. >> commissioner: is there a motion? >> second. >> clerk: all right.
5:35 am
item 15. item 16 appropriate for motion to disclose or not disclose information discussed. >> not disclose. >> commissioner: is there a second? >> second. >> commissioner: all in favor, please say aye. we will not disclose the contents of that closed session. >> clerk: that concludes the business before us today. >> commissioner: thank you very much, fellow directors.

good morning everybody. welcome to the rebirth of west side chords which was the second oldest housing development in san francisco but also one of the most stable communities in san francisco and we're here to celebrate today a new life and you're going to hear more about what that's about today my name is bill witty i'm chairman and ceo related california and on behalf of our partner tabernacles cdc who you'll hear from and related. we welcome you. without further ado i'm honored to introduce someone who in fact needs no introduction the first african-american american woman mayor of san francisco but more importantly a person who is of by and for this community. leader not only of
5:41 am
this community but of the whole city are once and future mayor honorable london breed applause everyone. thank you all so much for being here and first of all i just want to say to the people who live in west side courts congratulations this is truly your victory and i know we're gonna be swearing in the resident council here today and mr. street is not able to join us. the president but we have the resident council here so we'll get to that in just a moment. i i just want to start by saying you know this is this is pretty amazing. i grew up as many of you probably know in the western edition community and it. i grew up in housing and plaza ease and the conditions of
5:42 am
plaza east for over 20 years of my life where i lived? were similar to the conditions that exist right here in west side courts. before this renovation and when i first became supervisor i met with mayor ed lee and talk to him about housing and why we weren't meeting our obligation as a city to invest in housing in a way that would allow people to live in dignity it was very personal for me because of my own personal experience in frustration and so nothing was more important to me than trying to focus on making the kinds of changes that will better the conditions of the people who live here. merely agreed him. we worked really hard and the rad program is something when awesomely was director of the mayor's office a housing we brought that idea to the community and a lot of folks were apprehensive of course because commitments
5:43 am
had been made in the past but the follow through has has not happened but because of that work. i'm so really proud that we are renovating over thirty five hundred housing units all over the city and changing really the conditions of how people. live and again some of the basic things that so many people take for granted because i understand what it feels like to live in a community where sometimes a windows are broken and the heat doesn't work and the water doesn't work in the toilet is stopped up and we never even had showers at plaza ease and the roaches and the past and all the stuff that really frustrated me to no end. i know has frustrated so many of the residents who lived here for years so this is really about keeping a promise a promise to change the conditions of a number of
5:44 am
housing units throughout san francisco so that the residents truly feel not only respective but they know that they are truly an important part of the city and county of san francisco as a whole. so so many people help to contribute to making this happen and i know that one of those person sadly is not here with us today michael palmer who work for the mayor's office a housing was a real advocate for something that i also cared about and that was making sure. that we weren't displacing the residents while we did the construction work so that people felt like we weren't trying to push them out and his work around understanding construction and combining that with his understanding and love for people really made a difference not only in this project but in so many projects throughout the city. that we are rehabbing and so i know michael's family is here with us today and i'd ask you all to please stand and be acknowledged thank you for coming applause this this
5:45 am
place belongs to the community and i just wanted to also take this opportunity to thank. so many people who made this possible and in fact i'm glad we didn't give top clatter a heart attack because he was the one who with the tabernacle along with reverend mccray who spent so many hours working with the residents in this community and i want to thank tabernacle i want to thank. related. the project manager for this project i want to thank bank of america not only investing in this project but continuing to invest in other rehabilitation projects throughout our city and i want to thank the mayor's office of housing so much. this was really a partnership along with our spiritual leaders in the community reverend arnold towns in and
5:46 am
reverend amos brown thank you for continuing to make sure that the community takes front and center in any of these projects that we have worked on to rehabilitate and i also like to acknowledge our new california state treasurer fiona mom who is joining us here today. thank you so much. owe her office provided the tax credits thank you so much without those tax credits we wouldn't be able to do this project and again it takes a village it was a lot of hard work. and i think about on today along with so many of the projects that i've been able to attend a lot of these events as soon as i'm ask i'm right there because i'm so happy i feel like this is happening to me. i feel like you know this is something that i would have liked to have happened to me when i was growing up. you know in
5:47 am
plaza ease but at this time i'm so grateful that it's happening for the residents here at west side courts. it means a lot. and it did take a village and so i want to thank you know i know royal and the folks who painted from from this neighborhood and so many other incredible people who came together to really provide you know this community with a place that they so deserve and we know that there is a lot more work to do and when i think about today i really think about mayor ed lee. something he would always say it's not just about making new promises is about keeping oh promises and today we keep a promise to this community to not only invest in the place that they live but continue to provide programming and resources and other things that will not only support this community but we'll make sure that this community thrives so at this time on
5:48 am
behalf of the city and county of san francisco i would like to honor the members of the tenant association. and thank you for your commitment and your leadership and i want to also say to all the residents here they are volunteers working on your behalf and at this time we would like to swear them in. so come on up. as so jonathan street is not with us today unfortunately he's he's the new president and he's not feeling well. but we have joe blocks. . am i saying you're right name right joe and cassandra bennett randy walton and mary jones they are gonna be sworn in and really excited to administer the oath of office. so let's do it at this time. michael

name is randy walton and the treasurer of the ways that 10 association he joins me now. i was the vice president. but today i am the treasury and i welcome you all. and i just want to let you know that this is a journey that we're on. and we all take it highly seriously and i want to save him. my. i didn't have a chance to do. think about this writer species anything because i was actually do this at the last moment and some speaking from the heart to let you know that. west i of course to me he's like it is. it's amazing because when i first came here it was nothing like this and i came from southern california this my first member living in housing project. when i came to san francisco and i had a
5:53 am
lot of fear and a lot of apprehension about it and manage. there was a bit here at the time told me they changed a lot. it wasn't the same valid placed at it suppose it once been and i've seen it grows from that point on. and now you know this is really state and a great place to live. you know. the council here behind me we've all had our struggles here and we just we've been we bind together to make things happen we have a lot of plans that we want to put that out there for the residents and to make this a great a place for the kids. we have plans for that. you know we have a lot of things that we've got hope to do and we can't do it alone. we need the residents have in order to do it so we put it out there. we just want to be for everybody. for the kids for the adults in everyone including think the management here at west side for working with us. todd and everyone else. and so as we go along. journey
5:54 am
year just be patient with us and know that we're working funding for the residents in thank you have a blessed day. as no excuse me hello everyone my name is cassandra bennett i am the secretary of the tennis association known at 10 it. i've been here for 15 years and as far as part of the council i want no more than to see the tenants advance and have our property management and the people that are over west side courts just treat the tenants with respect. and together. just the tenets come together
5:55 am
and in love each other and embrace each other and the gap with one another. you know without a team effort we have nothing close together we standard divided we fall so i just want to state and i'm thankful to be able to stand before you today. and hope stated tinnitus will appreciate the new over face that we have a new facelift because it is a facelift. and it looks beautiful. i must say that looks really nice you know but you're still work to be done and as low as a tenets take care and work together we can make things happen. i look forward with the rest of the team to make things happen around here here and away from here you know i i embrace change not only hear web site courts but outside of what cyborgs. there's nothing matters in the quality of life your rights and privacy rights to respect your rights period so with that. i just want to say thank you. as well i don't
5:56 am
think i could say any better than our last couple of speakers did. as mere breeds said though this is a partnership. owners residents in the city and our partner in owning this development now and hopefully pretty much forever tabernacles cdc led by someone who first was just a partner now has become a
5:57 am
friend. the reverend dr. james mccray who himself has a longtime history is a pastor in the western addition reverend mccray as mr. waiting thank you very much for that very kind introduction. and i noticed that he introduced me as reverend that that change is what i was going to do. just a little i would like to ask all of the related team if you're here. stand up. and there are others are all of the tabernacle team if you're here. stand up. as all of
5:58 am
the fdr h t. would you stand up. reverend banks. come on come on down their work. i think the others have that i wanted to thank have been thanked the city. the bank. the community but i would now like to ask all of us to stand up. and i'd like to ask the leaders to come back and stand right here a minute and turn around and i want all of us just to extend our hands towards these leaders in our community. just in our own way wish them strength. courage and then my favorite
5:59 am
