saying, and i think we probably would have considered that, had we known we'd still be here amending this agreement. we're really not expecting to be in this situation. >> supervisor peskin: and relative to the public commenter's question, how many public toilets? >> 25. >> supervisor peskin: 25 toilets for our 50 square miles. and in the current contract, we get how much money a year? >> it varies, depending on how much money decaux makes. it's 7% of their gross, and it has been anywhere from about 750,000 to 800,000. it has gone down in the last couple of years because decaux has been losing money to other advertisers in the area, like clear channel, who have digital on both the m.t.a. kiosks and the news racks that are
11:01 pm
actually public works news racks, so there's been an emotion in decaux' market because they're not digital yet. >> supervisor mandelman: yeah. thank you, chair fewer. so i am hearing from my colleagues significant reservations about continuing our relationship with j.c. decaux, and i do not actually feel that i have had the opportunity to talk to folks in the castro who might be impacted by this, by my constituents who, you know, may be -- may be fine with getting j.c. decaux, and that may actually be the will of the city at this point. but i would like the opportunity to do some more consultation and hearing some other alternatives from the department.
11:02 pm
i'm comfortable not taking a vote on this date. i would like this to come back on a date certain so it would enable us to have these conversations and get us better prepared whether we're ready to make that break. i just feel i like to do a little bit of thinking about. >> one thing i would like -- and i'm more than happy to come and brief the -- you know, anyone who's interested on kind of where we are and what the tradeoffs are, one of the things that i would say and the reason city went down this road in the 90's was it was a way to city of capital in exchange for digital advertising? it cost money to put them in, and there's mant tans that decaux supports. i understand -- maintenance
11:03 pm
that did he taecaux supports. just so you know, if you don't support that, we'll no longer have 25 a.d.a. toilets in san francisco. to make that investment as a city is a significant amount of cash when we know we're wanting to fund many things and have toto make choices, which is what we want to do. >> chair fewer: sure. i don't have one in my neighborhood, and i'm sure they've requested one, which is not an issue today, so supervisor peskin? >> supervisor peskin: i did have one question. the reason there was only one respondent to the r.f.p. was because the way the r.f.p. was written. are there other people, other companies in this field, can you address why there was only
11:04 pm
one respondent to the request for proposals. >> so when we did the prebid conference, there were two companies that twaended thatte conference. one was clear channel, and one was decaux. i think you're familiar that clear channel was -- has the bus shelters at the m.t.a.? and it has not been a successful contract for clear channel? and they are providing the m.t.a. for shelters and main nance for shelters that i believe are at least even to their expenses, so it's a good arrangement for the m.t.a. and perhaps not as good an arrangement for clear channel. i think because that does not work out too well for clear channel, they are not always in the business of providing street furniture in exchange
11:05 pm
for advertising rights. that's a niche that decaux has kind of carved out for itself in the advertising industry? generally speaking, those advertising companies don't provide capital furniture, you know, and maintenance often, although i do know that the more common mode for this is bus shelters, and i believe that in both new york and chicago, the decaux arrangement there is more around bus shelters in exchange for advertising than kiosks and toilets? but in europe, they have many of these kiosks in exchange for toilets, and in southern california, i believe there's other street furniture that decaux has provided to cities in exchange for advertising rights? does that help answer your question? >> supervisor peskin: it does. let me just ask this question a little bit differently. it seems to me there are two public policy goals here.
11:06 pm
one is to provide bathroom facilities, and the other is to make the city money, right? is that a fair -- >> or get services in exchange that are worth something to the city in lieu of the cash, yes. >> supervisor peskin: and the source of the money is advertising. >> correct. >> supervisor peskin: so did it ever occur to the city, what if -- i'm not a big fan of this as i stated previously, but what if we just said hey, you can go build a bunch of digital signs on market street, put that out for bid, and take that money for 25 toilets of our own. >> we can simply look at advertising rights for that. i think that as i've said before, a lot of the reason that jurisdictions go down this road is they don't want to have to make the capital investment,
11:07 pm
and so it's the capital in exchange for advertising? and i guess we'd need to decide whether we're comfortable. the thing about having the companies build and maintain these is then you are kind of moving that risk and that responsibility and locking it in for a period of time. and we all know that there's economic fluctuations, so from a city's perspective, they're guaranteed for a 25 or 30-year period. >> supervisor peskin: how much does a pit stop cost, and how much does it cost to staff? >> so i have the staff number readily in my head. it's about $200,000 a year just to staff one of these. i would need to look and get
11:08 pm
back to you on exactly how much it costs because there are actually different pit stop models. i think you're familiar that we cover two rec and park facilities, so sometimes we already have a facility, but most of our pit stops are the mobile kind so i would want to be able to get you accurate casts for the trailer and truck -- costs for the trailer and truck driver, but i'm happy to do that. >> supervisor peskin: thank you. and i know you've been staffing decaux toilets, like the one at washington square has public works staff at decaux toilets. >> they're actually staff from a nonprofit through a grant, so it's not public works staff. the only public works staff that are working on the toilets are the drivers that are bringing the toilets in in the mobile program and then taking them and storing them, so those are actually public works employees. >> supervisor peskin: thank you. >> chair fewer: supervisor
11:09 pm
stefani? >> supervisor stefani: thank you, chair fewer. through the chair, miss dawson, is there a map where all of these bathrooms for? can you send one? >> of course. >> supervisor stefani: is there an established criteria for where these bathrooms go? >> so this was cited when the original agreement was put in place? they were determined on the following basis, where most tourists were and there were not readily available public facilities, so you'll see a lot of them in the fisherman's wharf area. there are some on the top of twin peaks where a lot of tour buses go. there's one in u.n. plaza, civic center plaza where there just weren't access ibibility
11:10 pm
areas to go? there was, a long time ago, a sense that the toilet program could expand, and there was this ratio between the number of kiosks and the number of toilets. but later on, the voters passed an initiative that limited the number of kiosks, and so that is why we have 25 toilets today. we might have had more had we had a different policy decision? but that's what we have now. we could certainly look at relocating existing toilets if we felt. so there is one in the castro, for instance, there's one on washington and hyde square park, there's one at coit tower. in the one at coit tower, there's an a.d.a. accessibility
11:11 pm
issue? in coit tower, the space is very constained, and an -- constrained, and an a.d.a. accessible unit could not be built, so that's why some of them are where they are. km . >> chair fewer: i have a question. j.c. decaux, do they service the toilets? >> they do. >> chair fewer: so we pay the staff, and j.c. decaux doesn't pay san francisco at all for staffing. >> no. at this point, j.c. decaux does not appropriate the staffing. the city administers it throughothrough a grant, but one of the pieces of negotiation in the new contract is moving it from a
11:12 pm
city responsibility to being a decaux responsibility but with all of it still being the workforce development program and a community based program that it is today, so that will be part of the new graemagreem now remember, pit stops are decauxs, and there's about 20 pit stops now, but those are all -- the others are either mobile or to our rec park. >> chair fewer: okay. i think we've had enough discussion on this. i make a motion, then, to move this -- continue this item at the request of myself but also supervisor mandelman, giving a chance to speak to his community about this, to the meeting of march 13. can we take that without objection? thank you very much. thank you very much. [gavel]. >> chair fewer: madam clerk, can you please call items 16 and 17 and 18 together, please.

afternoon. dea deanna kizon with the san francisco international airport. the proposed lease approvals are tweent airport and lady luck gourmet, host international, inc. i. the total minimum annual guarantees is $2,626,875 for the initial two year term. two of the initial proposers are headquartered in the bay area. notably, lady luck gourmet is
11:15 pm
the first filipino food vendor in the airport, which is why i asked to be here. >> chair fewer: thank you. let's hear from the b.l.a., please. >> these vendors were collected through a request for process. each tenant would pay the greater of the minimum annual guaranteed rent or a percentage rent. the leases are expected to begin as part of the terminal one project. this is an early approval of them. if the tenants payed just the minimum -- paid just the minimum annual guarantee, the initial return to the airport would be 12.6 million. the airport assumption is they will pay the greater rent rather than the minimum
11:16 pm
guarantee, and we recommend approval. >> thank you. >> chair fewer: let's open up public comment. is there any member of the public that would like to comment on this? seeing none, public comment is closed. any comments or questions from my colleagues? seeing none, i'll make a motion to move this to the full board with a positive recommendation. [gavel]. >> chair fewer: madam clerk, please read items 19 and 20.
11:17 pm
[agenda item read] [agenda item read]. >> chair fewer: okay. thank you very much. this is -- any comments, questions? nothing. let's go to budget legislative analyst, please. >> yes. the two pieces of legislation, they approve the commercial lease between the city and the department of public works for 101 hyde street, and they've approved the receipt of funding from the san francisco foundation in the amount of $1 million. this space is a temporary use pending use of the property for an affordable housing program. the lease goes through 2025. the la cocina would be expected to put in about $4.6 million in
11:18 pm
continuant improvements. we -- tenant improvements. we summarize that in our report on page four. there's a balance of about 782,000. this has not been identified yet that would either be additional fund raising by la cocina or a bridge loan, and we recommend approval. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. and i believe you have a presentation for us. >> thank you, chair fewer, supervisors stefani, mandelman, and peskin. hello. lisa pagan from the office of workforce development. i have slides -- hopefully -- yes, thank you. i'm here with my colleagues, mara blitzer and amy chan with
11:19 pm
the mayor's office of housing and workforce development. we have worked collaboratively on an interim use for 101 hyde street, which i'm here to talk with you about today. a little background on this really exciting project. between 2016 and 2018, the site at 101 hyde at golden gate nearby here was acquired by the city through a land dedication at 1066 market street? the land was donated. in addition to the land, there was a $6 million gift held by the san francisco foundation of which 1 million was dedicated for an interim use for the site while it was waiting the development to move forward for an affordable housing and 5 million for affordable housing which is still held by the san francisco foundation for that project. the city issued an r.f.p. for community serving interim use, and we selected la cocina?
11:20 pm
this is -- this is at hyde and golden gate. so the proposal is -- for the interim use is 7500 square foot food hall -- oh, excuse me, did it not show? no, it's not showing. let's see...i'm not sure if that's my end or their end. sfgovtv? >> chair fewer: yes. we're just waiting for sfgovtv to show this. >> a 7500 food hall is proposed with a kitchen? there'll be one permanent and seven rotating food vendors.
11:21 pm
it'll be a welcome and vibrant space on a very tough corner that our service has worked for many years on in the market c.b.d. so this will be really welcoming, a new affordable eating for the tenderloin residents. it will help with neighborhood outreach and serving as a liaison to the tenderloin neighborhood for this project, and i have a plan here, which is hard to see on the video, but hopefully, you can see it closer up front, with the kiosks and the commercial kitchen, you see the seating areas which would be available for the community for events, actually, as a community center type space. so the lease terms for this interim use as was explained by the budget legislative analysis, it's going to expire
11:22 pm
in -- december 31, 2025, so ideally, the term would be approximately march 2019, depending on if the lease is approved -- or recommended for approval and then approved at the board. the monthly rent is $1,000 plus 5% of net income, which would begin upon the issuance of the temporary certificate of occupancy? la cocina is responsible for the tenant improvements and all costs associated with operating the premises under the lease that we have negotiated? so in addition, the project timeline is that the start of construction is estimated to be may 2019 if the interim lease is approved, and they'd like to complete the tenant
11:23 pm
improvements by november, have a soft launch in december and open in january 2020 for the community? and then, the mayor's office of housing and community development is here to answer additional questions if you have about the proposed housing development? and there's also an accept and expend grant as part of this in order to release the $1 million from the san francisco foundation for this project. >> chair fewer: thank you. any questions or comments from my colleagues? seeing none, let's open this up for public comment. there are any members of the public that would like to comment on items 19 or 20. >> hello. i'm the director of the project. thank you, lisa. she captured it really well. thank you to mara's team, as
11:24 pm
well. in addition to all those great stuff, we also expect to hire 30 to 40 people from the tenderloin area. we have a commit -- we have commit -- we are committed to hire 75% from the neighborhood, and we expect to create about $4 million in revenue through the market hall. i hope that the supervisors will approve this loan, this lease, skm we' lease, and we're very confident that we can make this happen. la cocina has been working with woman for the last several years in businesses. we have over 30 brick and mortar restaurants opened by women, which over 90% are still open.
11:25 pm
this is something that no other organization in the bay area can claim to. so we hope to also be the provide of healthy food options in the neighborhood. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> jennifer fremont from the coalition on homelessness. there was a lot of concerns, much like the monster in the mission, and we were called -- calling it the t-rex in the tenderloin. the company was going to be -- the developers were making a lot of money and really doing the bare minimum. so there was a lot of work in the community to force the developer to do some stuff to mitigate. they were not too comfortable with having poor people on
11:26 pm
their site, and it ended up buying this building and giving the additional money to san francisco foundation. now, the interim use stuff, from our understanding is a lot of folks that were involved in this was it wasn't going to slow down the creation of the housing. there were interim use, but things were going to move full steam ahead. with proposition c, there's an option to having this housing be put in quicker. i think there needs to have some conversations about that because i don't think any of us imagined that. also, two years have already passed, so this has been a very lengthy, long thing that is potentially going to be causing even further delay. so we'd appreciate some more conversation about this. thank you. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. any other comments from my
11:27 pm
colleagues? so yes, this is a seven-year lease, and we love la cocina, however, this community was promised an affordable housing site on this site, and a seven-year lease is a very long period of time. and so i am not comfortable actually passing this out of committee today because what the community and the members of the board were promised during the last budget cycle, it was a two-year temporary use, and then, those plans were 100% affordable housing. so i think i'd like to have more conversation on this. i'd like to continue this item -- oh, supervisor peskin? >> supervisor peskin: i just wanted to also add not just prop c, which is subject to litigation, but as we know, the mayor and the board are contemplating what at a minimum would be a $300 million general obligation bond for affordable
11:28 pm
housing on this november's ballot, so i just wanted to add that to the conversation. >> chair fewer: excuse me one second. so i see supervisor haney, which is a cosponsor of this, is in the room. supervisor haney, would you like to speak on this item? oh, you can actually come in here, supervisor. >> supervisor haney: oh. >> chair fewer: miss wong. >> supervisor haney: sorry for
11:29 pm
crashing the party. i think that i support what -- your comments in terms of continuing this and spending a little more time working with the community on it and talking about the length of the lease. obviously, we want to see that site activated right away. it's really a shame of sort of what has happened to that block as it's been a building that is really shuttered, and the community wants to see it activated. with that said, there's a commitment to have affordable housing and some of the opportunities that we have for funding may have shifted a little bit with the bond and prop c and other things, so -- eraf. so i'd love to be able to have some time to spend with oewd, with la cocina, with mohcd and with the community to see what the right time frame is. we want them to happen now, but as soon as we're ready to build housing, we want to be able to do that.
11:30 pm
i would respectfully ask, as you said, be continued. >> chair fewer: would the meeting of march 13 work for you? that's two weeks from now. >> supervisor haney: that would be great, yeah. >> chair fewer: so i make a motion to move this item to the meeting of march 13. >> clerk: for clarification, both items? >> chair fewer: yes, both items, 19 and 20. thank you, supervisor haney. madam clerk, are there any other items before us today? >> clerk: there are no other items. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. the meeting is adjourned.

11:32 pm
francisco public utilities commission water quality division started receiving many more requests to test for lead in the public school system here in san francisco as a result of legislation that had passed from the state requiring all of the public schools to do lead testing. and so as a result, the public utilities commission and the water quality team in particular was asked to meet with the san francisco unified school district to begin to prioritize which schools to test to meet that state mandate. >> the team that tests, we're a full service environmental laboratory, and we take care of both the needs of the water quality division and the waste water enter price. and on the water quality enterprise, we have to also have drinking water that meets all federal and state quality regulations. and lead in schools, we're playing a problem in remediating this problem of lead in schools.
11:33 pm
>> our role here in communications is being able to take the data that we have that we know is protective of public health and safety and transmit it, give it to the public in a way they understand we are really doing our jobs well and making sure that they are safe always. >> the public learned very quickly all the accurate facts and all the critical information that they needed to know, and it's up to these individuals and their agencies and their commitment to the city. >> i enjoy the work because i can help people, and i can help the utilities to provide a better water quality, make sure that people feel that drinking hetch hetchy water is actually a pride. >> hats off to the water quality team because between them working on late nights, working on the weekends when the schools are closed, and working as a partner in the school district for the times they found a higher lead sample, they worked through to
11:34 pm
address that, so the team went above and beyond and is continuing to do that today. ♪ >> about two years ago now i had my first child. and i thought when i come back, you know, i'm going to get back in the swing of things and i'll find a spot. and it wasn't really that way when i got back to work. that's what really got me to think about the challenges that new mothers face when they come back to work. ♪ >> when it comes to innovative ideas and policies, san francisco is known to pave the way, fighting for social justice or advocating for the
11:35 pm
environment, our city serves as the example and leader many times over. and this year, it leads the nation again, but for a new reason. being the most supportive city of nursing mothers in the work place. >> i was inspired to work on legislation to help moms return to work, one of my legislative aids had a baby while working in the office and when she returned we had luckily just converted a bathroom at city hall into a lactation room. she was pumping a couple times a day and had it not been for the room around the hallway, i don't know if she could have continued to provide breast milk for her baby. not all returning mothers have the same access, even though there's existing state laws on the issues. >> these moms usually work in low paying jobs and returning to work sooner and they don't feel well-supported at work.
11:36 pm
>> we started out by having legislation to mandate that all city offices and departments have accommodations for mothers to return to work and lactate. but this year we passed legislation for private companies to have lactation policies for all new moms returning to work. >> with the newcome -- accommodations, moms should have those to return back to work. >> what are legislation? >> we wanted to make it applicable to all, we created a set of standards that can be achievable by everyone. >> do you have a few minutes today to give us a quick tour. >> i would love to. let's go. >> this is such an inviting space. what makes this a lactation room? >> as legislation requires it
11:37 pm
has the minimum standards, a seat, a surface to place your breast on, a clean space that doesn't have toxic chemicals or storage or anything like that. and we have electricity, we have plenty of outlets for pumps, for fridge. the things that make it a little extra, the fridge is in the room. and the sink is in the room. our legislation does require a fridge and sink nearby but it's all right in here. you can wash your pump and put your milk away and you don't have to put it in a fridge that you share with co-workers. >> the new standards will be applied to all businesses and places of employment in san francisco. but are they achievable for the smaller employers in the city? >> i think small businesses rightfully have some concerns about providing lactation accommodations for employees, however we left a lot of leeway in the legislation to account for small businesses that may have small footprints.
11:38 pm
for example, we don't mandate that you have a lactation room, but rather lactation space. in city hall we have a lactation pod here open to the public. ♪ ♪ >> so the more we can change, especially in government offices, the more we can support women. >> i think for the work place to really offer support and encouragement for pumping and breast feeding mothers is necessary. >> what is most important about the legislation is that number one, we require that an employer have a lactation policy in place and then have a conversation with a new hire as well as an employee who requests parental leave. otherwise a lot of times moms don't feel comfortable asking their boss for lactation
11:39 pm
accommodations. really it's hard to go back to the office after you have become a mom, you're leaving your heart outside of your body. when you can provide your child food from your body and know you're connecting with them in that way, i know it means a lot to a mommy motionlely and physically to be able to do that. and businesses and employers can just provide a space. if they don't have a room, they can provide a small space that is private and free from intrusion to help moms pump and that will attract moms to working in san francisco. >> if you want more information visit sfdph.org/breastfeedingatwork. ♪ ♪ ♪
