transportation to this tennis center so that young kids like the ones behind me can have access to a world renowned center in our city right here in golden gate park. this is made possible yes, because the genre russ voters here -- voters support the park fund and we make every dollar count. to get the projects done faster, we rely on the support of contributors. mr. toby is here. he is an incredible contributor to this project. i want to acknowledge him and his family foundation and the incredible support of lisa and doug goldman who continue to support mr. and mrs. goldman who continue to support incredible projects all over the city.
1:01 pm
thank you to the corrett foundation. those were major contributions and there are so many other people whether you gave $5 or $5 million, every dollar that you gave made this project possible and you all should be proud for your contributions. i want be to thank each and every one of the tennis folks in the room. there are so many tennis people who make sure we protect the tennis courts in our city. that is so important. like i said, even though i tried and i wasn't that great the fact is i had a place to try. that is what counts because you never know when you are going to basically create the neck serena williams or anyone else. we have to make sure those opportunities exist. thank you all for being here today. we are breaking ground today.

1:03 pm
i was at rosa parks this morning talking to the kids. we were talking about one of the kids started talking about tennis. i said i am going to the golden gate park tennis courts they are building new ones. he said i love tennis. i thought it was so cute because he said i play over there. was is amazing about these courts is they are open to everyone. unlike supervisor -- sorry -- mayor breed. old habits diehard. unlike mayor breed i have played here. these are great courts. what is amazing when you play here you meet people from all over the city. a lot of people come and bring friends that aren't from the city. it is really a social, it is social here and you meet all kinds of people. what is going to happen after
1:04 pm

1:09 pm
the steward of this site for decades and decades and decades. that was the true spark and true originator and creator of this project. i will give a special shout to dave martini. he was the first person to knock on my door 10 years ago and he would not take no for an answer. they are such a tremendous partner and the work is incredible. the journey we have gone on and a long with the tennis coalition is most rewarding. we have really figured it out together. this is like doubles where you actually know where your partner is on the court. we have played well together and it is migrate pleasure -- my pleasure to represent lois who
1:10 pm
is representing the tennis coalition today but more importantly has become my dear friend. [applause.] >> good morning honorable mayor supervisors and commissioners and all of you. i would like us to reflect how we got here. i don't mean if you took uber. how we got to this historic groundbreaking. i want to start with my own story. i am a woman of a certain age. i grew up long before title ix, and i never had a chance to pursue any sport seriously. when i retired i really wanted that job that i never had. i wanted to give it my all. this passion led me right here to these courts and to the past six years twice a week sometimes more this is where i am
1:11 pm
uplifted, where i am trying at last to learn this game correctly. i want to welcome each of you to my joy to my community, and surrounded by these magnificent trees my sanctuary. i know many of you feel exactly the same way. it was not quite four years ago that martha invited me to join her. she couldn't be here today. martha. (applause). >> she invited me to join her as could chair of the tennis coalition. her main focus is to assure this continues well into 21st century. we envisioned this public center affordable humming on all cylinders the bedrock of tennis
1:12 pm

1:15 pm
allowed to play unless they had a white shirt. you drove 70 miles to k-mart to make sure our kids could compete and they did an awesome awesome job. [applause.] >> we want this place to serve everyone kids of all ages. for the recreation and park department our heart beat is our children. i am so proud of the tennis learning center program that we have created that currently is in four different neighborhood parks partnering with four different elementary schools in which our instructors go to the schools meet with the teachers, understand the kids' homework, help with homework after school and introduce them to a brand-new sport every day five days a week that happens.
1:16 pm
the vision for this place is that those kids when they graduate from elementary school will come here for middle school. they will have their own dedicated classroom in the clubhouse where they will continue to get academic support and high school readiness and continue to learn and grow in the sport of tennis. we have an outstanding leader in the recreation and parks department that runs our tennis learning center program. i am so proud and humbled to introduce channing hill.

1:18 pm
parent teacher conference. how to read their child's report card. i pressure my directors and staff to make sure we have those answers. to know we are going to come here for middle school portion and i have one of my kids who actually started with me four years ago. she is in fourth grade and coming to our middle school portion. this is a product what we can do. now we have her little brother attending the program. that shows how much we have done in our communities. we also have up to 30 children on all four sites. all of our other locations are wait listed. that shows what we are doing in these children's lives. thank you.

1:39 pm
and moving the mission bay area, as well as the surrounding projects. with that, i would like to call on mark sluskin, the project manager for mission bay. i know you've worked very closely with her over the years. >> good afternoon, commissioners chair. >> is the speaker on? >> good afternoon, vice chair, commissioners. i'm the project manager for mission bay, and i had the pleasure of working with corrine the past three years i've been here at ocii. she was definitely an incredible person to work with. everything stated in the resolution, she is someone who cared deeply about her community. she worked endlessly to help improve community and the city. she also cared about the people within our community. and she cared about the people who worked here at the city and ocii.
1:40 pm
i know there are several people who want to speak, so i do want to keep it short. but i want to share a story. every now and then someone on my staff would send corrine an e-mail after hours. the next day i would get a phone call or an e-mail from corrine expressing her concern that my staff was working late. that really sums up corrine. while she was working tirelessly herself to make the community and the city a better place, she was expressing concern that nobody else was being overworked. she is just a kind person, and i'm deeply going to miss her. i think there are other people who want to say things as well. >> thank you. we would like to now open it for public comment. >> kathryn reilly. >> good afternoon, commissioners director. i'm kathryn reilly, former
1:41 pm
project manager for mission bay. i had the great honor to work with corrine woods for eight years. i'm going to miss her greatly. she was that one-of-a-kind type of person who had the mixture of smarts, problem solving, and a little mixture of a little crankiness and pushiness to keep things moving. she did all of this for the greater good. i think the commissioner mentioned the number of committees she was on. these were all hours she spent on her own time, and never got reimbursed, and did it not just for herself, but more importantly she really cared for the community as a whole. you see a lot of the reports on her in the news and at the port commission. she is not what you would call a nimbe. she understood that change is coming, so she focused her efforts in focusing out how to better that for the betterment of the community. she worked hard with developers and staff, pushing us, as she should, to get the best deals for
1:42 pm
the community. she held us responsibility afterwards to make sure everything that was promised to the community was given. she did not see staff and developers as enemies, but as partners. i know personally i always appreciated that i could call corrine and i could have an off-line conversation to kind of brainstorm for example, say when the warriors are coming, to get her ideas and how to structure that. one. things i also appreciated was her willingness to stand up and advocate for the project. your next item, affordable housing i remember when our affordable housing staff came in and were looking for tips on how to deal with them. it made it a lot easier that corrine would get up there and she would sit there and remind the community that affordable housing is one of those things that is part of the deal. it makes it a lot easier when you have someone for the community advocating for the project, and not just staff. finally, i consider corrine a personal friend.
1:43 pm
as mark said, she would get more upset if up if i was working over time or people were beating me up. so i really will miss her, both for what she did, but for me, personally, as her friend. as one favor to a friend, i want to say in the memory of corrine, it was very important to her about what happens to the park and the ongoing maintenance. i please ask you, for corrine's sake, do it in a way that they're well-maintained and are a benefit to the community forever. thank you so much. >> amy nishe. >> good afternoon, commissioners. good afternoon, commissioner sinh. i'm a former redevelopment staffer, it is wonderful to be back in this room with all of you. i was a redevelopment staffer from 1995 to 2012. i was, for about 10
1:44 pm
years -- i had the privilege of being the project manager for mission bay during the planning and initial development. i then had the even greater privilege to supervise the project managers, including the incredibly articulate kathryn reilly, who you just heard, and i got to know corrine very well. she was an incredibly smart and passionate person. she had an incredible memory. she used to tell me she used all of the mission bay developments as a balance to keep the houseboat from moving. and she did. she could recall anything and eventually find the document to prove what she knew. she had strong feelings about things. she was an incredible advocate. we certainly had our run-ins because we didn't always see things the same way, but she usually won anyway. but what i want to say most about cor corrine is that she was an advocate for the future. she did not have a calcified view of san francisco. i'm from the '60s, as
1:45 pm
she was. she embraced the future the future of mission bay and of the ballpark and pier 70, and the entire southeast of the community. and she really brought other community members along with her to embrace the future, to embrace change, to say the city is changing, let's be part theofit. let's help build this a great community for everybody. she did so much to make mission bay and other things happen. and she did so much to help me and the other staffers. i wanted to come today to honor her incredible contributions. thank you. >> thank you. >> mary mccue. >> good afternoon, executive director and commissioners, president bustos -- he's still president? i'm mary mccue, and i'm here today to honor corrine woods the. woods.
1:46 pm
and so many wonderful things have been said about her all of which are true. when all of us at m.j. management first came down there, there was just that one little park. and at first we were afraid of corrine. but i knew a lot about her and a lot about her work and a lot about her accomplishments. and she challenged us a lot at first, and as the team grew, she not only continued to challenge us in the right way, and using all of the tactics that she learned in the '60s but to move things forward. and not to keep thing static, and she wouldn't let us do it, either. i would start out by asking if new things were happening and we wanted to make changes, have you run this by corrine? after a while it was the staff would talk to me, and i would have a suggestion and they would say, well, we talked to
1:47 pm
corrine about that. and she agrees with this part but not that part. and what was more important and more touching for us is that while she challenged us, and appropriately so because we were the new people coming in when we first came there, she went from being a challenger to a protector and an advocate. and kind of getting to us as things were happening so that we would know in advance. and she came to trust and rely on us, and that was the greatest honor we had, to get something like that from corrine. i'm just here to pay that tribute and thank you for allowing me to speak. >> thank you. >> pedro arsin. >> mr. president, members of the community, colleagues and public, i am not going to add more to what has been el
1:48 pm
eloquently said about corrine. i just want to express my fortune for having had the opportunity to work with her and to honor her memory. my best recollection about her was her willingness to support the staff, as was aptly said by my colleagues. in spite of the difficulties sometimes with our colleagues in the city family repeating amy's words, she was an advocate for the future and also quoting kathryn, her support for her staff was invaluable. thank you very much, and my gratitude and honor for her memory. >> no more speaker cards?
1:49 pm
>> is there anyone in the public? okay. >> good afternoon vice chair and commissioners, i'm hilde myo. i want to add a few things to what people have said today. i had the pleasure of working with corrine starting in 2014. i was one of the many new faces at ocii, in the post-dissolution era. there had been a lot of change in the organization, and corrine is someone who was very patient with me as i worked with her as the interim project manager, and she invested to me. she took these changes in stride and continueded to believecontinued tobelieve in people and invest in people, which is really special and significant. the conscience of mission bay -- she was the continuity, and not to be too heavy, but she was the soul. i think she will continue
1:50 pm
to inspire our work. and i think her memory demands the best of us. so i'm just here to share my gratitude with peter and all of her friends and family for sharing her with us. and that we can continue to work to do our best in that spirit. thank you. >> thank you. is there anybody else in the public that would like to say anything. seeing none, i will close public comment. i will turn to my fellow commissioners for any comments. >> i would like to say i am so challenged. i didn't know her personally, but i heard of her. and just in hearing what you said, these were the things i heard, and that's the person standing for what's going on in mission bay. i'm challenged, as a
1:51 pm
representative for the people in bay view hunter's point for the commission, and for our residents, i'm challenged to live a life that would follow in those footsteps an advocate for the future. because the future is coming. we're here, the future is coming, the future is here, and there is more to come. and i'm just thankful for what you've shared. >> thank you, commissioner. >> i would just like to add to all of the comments. in my experience now six years as a commissioner, i learned quickly to seek corrine as the expert if you will, from the community that could not just educate me as a commissioner about all things mission bay, but also just that her -- i agree, her manner -- my
1:52 pm
experience with her is she was able to work almost seamlessly, from what i could see, with the community, with the developments that were coming, with the staff certainly. and then when i was her time to speak to the commission i mean, i found myself kind of hearing her speak early on and then just naturally wanting to hear from her, after hearing everyone, what did she have to say, and that very much guided my thinking. so i have to give her thanks for that. i mean i did have one nice moment with her at -- i think it was the groundbreaking for the hotel in mission bay. and she came up and she just chatted with me. and then for the first time i learned that she lived in a houseboat. and i'm, like, i see, okay, now this makes a lot of sense. so, yeah, that was a nice personal moment. thank you. >> thank you. >> i know ms. wood for the
1:53 pm
last 20 years. and every meeting she was there, and i'm going to miss her. >> they say there are two important dates in your life: one is the day you were born, and the other is the day you understood why. and i think ms. woods understood why she was born. she cared deeply about the community, didn't want anything for herself but it was always about others. and i think she relished in that sense of integrity integrity and, you know, she was unapologetic about doing the right thing. and i think she was an excellent role model for us, especially those of us on this commission. whenever there was -- whenever i knew there was a contentious item, i sort
