[applause] >> it is always so weird to hear people talk about you when you're standing right there. thank you, i was born at kaiser,
2:40 pm
and the community that i grew up in. thank you for delivering me. [laughter]. >> good morning, everyone. this is a great opportunity to learn what people think about our cities, and for staff and i to really talk about the future of our city, and what we will do to make it even better than they are now. our city is deeply connected around housing and transportation and homelessness pick residents from both our cities across the bay to visit families, to work, to enjoy our nightlife and all of the great events we have in san francisco. we are to cities, but we are one region. as we are seeing our economy begin to grow, we face real challenges. we have not built enough housing, and we know, even though there was just talk of san francisco doing really well,
2:41 pm
i have seen to be too many of the people that i actually grew up in san francisco leave our city, and even leave the bay area because they couldn't find affordable housing. housing that is actually affordable to their income. there are no easy fixes. and i know staff share my commitment to building more housing. we both believe in solutions, whether it is our work with the housing plan, that i know the mayor talks about a little bit more detail later, are partnering with state representatives and our new governor. housing can no longer be a city by city issue. we have to work, we have to work together, large cities or small, or the bay area will not be affordable for workers and family. our cities will never solve this crisis alone, that we can do better. since taking office, this has been my focus. to get rid of the barriers and
2:42 pm
bureaucracy that get in the way of housing production, and to build more housing for people of all income levels. san francisco, are ready in my short time in office, i am moving forward with 300 million-dollar affordable dollars affordable housing bond. i directed my department of building inspection to get rid of the bureaucratic red tape that gets in the way of building we had 900 us -- accessory dwelling units backlogged. imagine putting 900 units on the market? eliminating the backlog, and most recently, i put forth legislation to eliminate the fees for in-laws, and affordable housing, 100% affordable housing during affordable housing projects, providing more affordable housing, and to get these in-laws into the market. [applause]
2:43 pm
>> i am proposing a chart -- charter amendment to make affordable housing and future housing as a right, so when proposals are put forth that meet the zoning requirements, we need to get it built. no more delays, no more bureaucracy. most recently, i saw the affordable housing people clapping over there. most recently, i just appointed justin true with us today, as a director of housing delivery. his sole job is to cut housing development in half. you have a lot of work to do. you don't have that much time, i am giving you a year. we know there are many factors that go into our housing affordability crisis, so you can't just throw up our hands. we have to dig in, and have to get to work. otherwise our residents will suffer, and the economy will suffer.
2:44 pm
we also need to invest in our transportation system. congestion is choking our roads, in the transit system are suffering from decades of underinvestment. we need stronger collaborative, especially to fund transformative changes, and to improve how we move people around the area. that means a second to translate some more people can access our mission bay neighborhood to get to the new center. means continuing to expand ferry service, and in fact, today, we are announcing the opening of a new ferry gate to san francisco which will double the downtown capacity. i am really excited about that. we are investing in public transportation, it is good for our city, but it is also good for the environment. fewer cars on our roads mean
2:45 pm
lower greenhouse gas emissions. our workers and residents need to real transportation options, and we will reduce congestion on our streets and our bridges. as we build more housing and invest in our transportation system, we have to expand housing for homeless residents, was sadly, we know, so many of them suffer from substance use disorder and mental illness. i see what everyone else sees on the street. i frustrated, just like the mayor is frustrated, but i really am optimistic about the future and what we are doing to work to get people housed, and to get them the services that they need, and in many instances, a lot of work and wraparound services are required but while we have much work to do, in san francisco, we are seeing some results. in fact, at since i've taken office in july of last year, we have been able to get almost
2:46 pm
1,000 people off the streets. almost 1,000 people. [applause] >> we've done this by expanding our shelter capacity. we've added a number -- we've added 338 new shelter beds to our system, and we also did this by reconnecting people with their families and other cities across the country through our homeward bound program. we are working to meet what is an ambitious goal by adding another thousand shelter beds by next year. we added 50 new mental health stabilization beds, and by this year, we will add 100 more mental health stabilization beds to help people suffering from substance abuse disorder and mental illness. we have to provide a variety of solutions to address this challenge. it is not a one-size-fits-all, it is not an easy problem to solve, but i'm optimistic about the future, and what we are doing in san francisco.
2:47 pm
but we also need to invest in our workforce, because even with a strong economy, there are people who are being left behind take our low unemployment rate, a sure sign of a healthy economy. when you look to meet those numbers, unemployment among african americans african-americans are three times that number, and among latinos are two times that number. we must try to promote everyone's success in the workplace, and in the community to make sure everyone is able to thrive in our cities. i will not be satisfied riding on the success of the incredible economy until we are able to bring everyone along. [applause] >> in san francisco, we have our city build program, which many of you in this room have
2:48 pm
partnered with us on, and we are grateful for that. is a little workforce experiments that has grown to be a model in the nation. we train -- we have an incredible success rate of 80 4% of those hundreds being placed into permanent jobs, men and women from city build our building this center now, and they will build our next generation. and just as important, is they will have stable, good paying jobs because of the training that they received. and we are expanding beyond the city build, just last month, i got the news that every mayor hates to get, that one of our companies shifting its stores and laying off his entire workforce. hundreds of cherry drivers were going to be out of work, but working with our office of economic and workforce
2:49 pm
development, our m.t.a., and the teamsters, we quickly came up with a plan to get these laid-off workers with licenses. we have a shortage of over 300 munimobile drivers, so what a great opportunity. for those who didn't have the proper licenses, we quickly enter that into our brand-new city ride program so we can help them get their licenses. we have a transit operations shortage that is hurting our city. and these drivers can help us with getting more buses on our streets, and getting more people trained to drive them. we look forward, we took a losing situation, and turned it into a win-win for the city, ad for the workforce. we have other efforts like our healthcare academy, our hospitality initiative, tech s.f., all these programs create opportunity for our residents to find careers in the economy. it is not only our adult
2:50 pm
workforce that i'm focusing on, i want to create opportunity for our kids so we can break the cycle of poverty and create new pathways for everyone in our city. we can create the workforces that we need for the future right in our city if we begin to invest now. at 814 p.m., i got a job with the training program working in a nonprofit agency. i was in the polished mayor that i am today, really difficult to deal with as a teenager, but given this opportunity, i really learned what it meant to work in a professional environment, what it meant to earn a paycheck, and i met people who believed in my potential. it is where i started, and what led me to my current path. this is why i decided to launch what is my signature initiative, opportunity for all.
2:51 pm
i am committed to making sure that every high school student in san francisco has access to a paid internship opportunity, in any interest -- any -- in any industry. [applause] >> whether it is the construction industry, healthcare industry, the city and county of san francisco, the tech industry, all of your companies will play a role in helping by providing a job for a young person, and if you are not prepared to deal with the challenges of teenaged kids, you can also help invest in our program by making a contribution so that we can place young people and in places all over our city. mentor and youth, if there are some great ways, i'm really excited about this program because it will change our future, and make things better for the next generation. by opening up the doors of opportunity to them. we can change what we see, and
2:52 pm
what we feel in our streets with your help. mentor a high school student from our public schools, hire someone you might not traditionally extend a job offer to, but who may have the potential, engage with the next generation knowing it's not about how it benefits your company, but how you can change their life tomorrow. the way that we create a more equitable society, a better bay area, at bay area where we have just an incredible future with housing and transportation systems that work, and people who are employed, and less homelessness, is by making sure we are making the right investments today, and working together to accomplish those goals. again, i'm optimistic about the future. in the future starts today with our investment and our commitment to rolling up our sleeves and getting the job done
2:53 pm
, especially for the next generation who are counting on us to make good decisions today so that their future is brighter. thank you all so much today -- thank you all so much for having me here today. >> hi. my name is carmen chiu, san francisco's elected assessor. buying your first home is a big deal. for many of us, it's the single largest asset that we'll own. that's why it's really important to plan ahead for property taxes so that there are no surprises. a typical question new
2:54 pm
homeowners ask is what is a supplemental tax. so understand supplemental tax, we need to start with proposition 13. under california's prop 13 law, the value we use to calculate your property tax is limited to a 2% growth peryear, but when ownership changes, prop 13 requires that we set a properties assessed value to market value. the difference in value between the previous owner's value and the new value is the supplemental assessment. how does the supplemental assessment translate to the tax you need to pay? supplemental tax is calculated by applying the tax rate to the value and then prorating it for the amount of time that you owned it in that tax year. in generale, the tax rate is roughly 1%. let's walk-through an example together. here dan is the original owner of a home with a prop 13 protected value of $400,000. with a tax rate of 1%, he pays
2:55 pm
$4,000. dan sells his home to jennie at a market rate of $700,000. in this case, jennie's home will be reassessed to $700,000, and jennie is responsible for paying property taxes at that level from the time she first owns it. many times, people might have already paid their property taxes in full by the time they sell their home. in that case, dan has paid $4,000 in taxes already for the full year. jennie would likely payback dan through escrow for her share of the $4,000, depending on the proportion of the tax year she owns the home. however, she's also responsible for paying taxes at the higher market value from when she begins to own the home. how does that work? let's say jennie owns the property for nine months of the first tax year, which is approximately 75% of the year. during the escrow process, she'd pay dan back 75% of the $4,000 he already paid, which is $3,000. on top of that, she would owe
2:56 pm
taxes at the higher rate for the proportion of the year she owned the house. in this case, she owes the amount not already billed through dan or $700,000 minus $400,000, multiplied by a tax rate of 1%, and multiplied again by 75% to reflect the time she owned the home in that tax year. here, jennie's supplemental tax is roughly $2,250. going forward, jennie will be billed at her new reset prop 13 value. are you still with us? if this isn't complicated enough, some new owners might receive two supplemental tax bills, and this has to do with the date that you transfer property. but before we get to that, you first need to understand two concepts. first, what is a fiscal year? in california, local government runs on a fiscal year. unlike the calendar year, where the year begins on january 1,
2:57 pm
a fiscal year begins in the middle of the year, on july 1. property tax follows the fiscal year cycle. second, state law requires property be valued as of january 1 every year, in other words, new year's day. the value as of january 1 is used to calculate property taxes for the upcoming fiscal year. this means property value as of january 1, 2018 will be usedtor fiscal year 18 -- used for fiscal year 18-19 covering july 2018 through june 2019. similarly, the value of january 1, 2019 will be used for the fiscal year covering july 2019 through june 2020. now back to whether you should expect to receive one or two supplemental tax bills. the rule of thumb is that if the property transfers happens in the first half of the fiscal year, in other words between july and december, then you
2:58 pm
should expect only one supplemental tax fill. if the transfer happens in the second half of the fiscal year or between january and june, you should expect two supplemental tax bills. here's the reason why. using dan and jennie's example again, dan's $400,000 value as of january 1 is used to set the tax bill for the following fiscal year beginning july through june of the next year. jennie buys the property from dan in october. the taxable value is reset to $700,000 as of october, but the bill issued still reflects dan's lower value. in this case, jennie would expect to receive one supplemental or catch-up bill to capture the difference between her assessed value and began's fr began's -- dan's from october through june. because of january 1 we already know of the sale, we would have used the following year to set jennie's property taxes and no other supplemental bill should be received.
2:59 pm
however, if dan sells the property to jennie in march, instead, jennie should expect two supplemental bills. like before, jennie would receive one supplemental bill to cover the time in which she owned the home in the current tax year from march to june. but because as of the next january used to set the tax base for the following tax year, dan still owned the home, the following year's entire bill still reflects the values not updated for jennie. in this instance, jennie receives a second supplemental for the following year covering july through june. after the supplemental tax bills, new owners should receive only one regular tax bill peryear going forward. remember our office values the properties, but billing and collections are handled by another organization called the treasurer and tax collector's office. if you'd like to learn more, please visit our website at thank you for watching.
