Commissioner Antonini:

There was a really good article by Ken Garcia this Sunday in the "Examiner," and it analyzes some of the reasons why many families are leaving San Francisco. So, Ken Garcia should know he is a San Francisco Native and attended St.Gabriel, when it was the largest school west of the Mississippi, and what we found were people with families are not far away in the San Mateo County and Marin County. The Pacifica has a lot of previous residents from the Sunset. What is interesting is he talks about many of these same issues we talk about here all the time -- difficulty with condo conversions for your own use, difficulty getting unit mergers. Of course, the school system, it is not a planning issue or has a relationship to it. So, very interesting that you have hit upon these things. I think there are a lot of reasons, although we always talk about cost. Cost is a factor, these residents in San Mateo County are paying just as much. They can get housing with conditions that are more acceptable to their families. We have to look at the process, what we're doing to drive families away.

President Olague:

I just wanted to welcome Jose Campos. I do not know if you have a few words for us at this time?
Go ahead, please. Tell us a little bit more about yourself.

Jose Campos:

President Olague, my name is Jose Campos. I am new to staff. I am coming from Spain where I was the last six years, but prior to that, I was a member of the San Francisco Planning Redevelopment Agency for eight years.

President Olague:

Welcome. I also want to acknowledge that we will have some of the Chinatown Urban Institute with us today, so, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us through the director on this, if you want to elaborate more, understanding more about the workings of City Planning. Thank you.
We will spend the time with that. I wanted to acknowledge former Commissioner Sue Lee is here.
Sadly, three members of San Francisco Planning family have passed away this week, in the past two weeks actually. One being Secretary Linda Avery's sister, and Anthony Urbina, he used to help us set up the meetings here, and finally Roberts Pender, who was very active in the Parkmerced organization.

Finally, it yes, I think that sometimes -- the articles I have read on the exodus of families tend not to be very cost conscious, actually. They do not focus enough on the working class families, the challenges they face, to certain pressures, especially the Mission and other neighborhoods where you have seen an exodus of Latino families. It is important that we're not just limited to a certain sector of those who are leaving. I think it is important that we keep all families here, middle-class, above and below, and I think it is important that we have a conversation that covers all of the above.

Commissioner Sugaya:

The conversation around families leaving the City is complicated. There was a recent "New Yorker" article, actually a long book review, talking about people leaving cities. For decades people are leaving cities. Not just San Francisco, but all around the Country, and moving to the suburbs. There are people moving back to San Francisco. They are different population. That kind of thing is universally happening, so it is not just here alone. I have not read the book that was given to us a couple weeks ago, but that was one of the books that was mentioned, along with a few others. In context, it is really not an isolated problem at all.

President Olague:

I think the same thing goes for manufacturing families and a lot of other issues. It is not simply -- you know, it is not that simple.

Commissioner sugaya:   I am not saying we shouldn't do something about it. It is just more complicated.

 

D.         DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

5.         Director’s Announcements

John Rahaim:

I want to pass my condolences on to Linda Avery for the loss of her sister, and also the Department felt condolences for the family of Anthony Urbina, Anthony was a member of the City family for a very long time. He passed away two weeks ago. Several members of the staff were able to attend the funeral. Last week. I also wanted to welcome back President Miguel. It is good to have you back, looking good and healthy as always. I also want to welcome Jose Campos. Thank you and welcome.

A couple of things I wanted to report to you. The Governor did indeed sign two bills last week related to Redevelopment Agencies, Senate Bill 26 and 27. Those bills did take effect immediately upon his signature. In summary, just where we are today, AB26 essentially prohibits redevelopment agencies from taking on new actions, including incurring new debt or making new loans or making new contracts or amending or adopting new redevelopment areas. They are subject to a number of new responsibilities under this particular bill. If the agencies do not comply with that provision they will dissolve as of October 1st of this year, -- AB27 provides an exception to that. Actions primarily require them to -- for the City to adopt an ordinance saying it will volunteer to participate in the program, and that will require the City to make payments to the County for distribution to schools, fire protection agencies and transit agencies. I previously thought it was just schools, but it was three different entities that would normally be the recipients of the funds. That ordinance, if the City chooses to take this path has to be adopted by November 1 of this year. So the City and the Redevelopment Agency are looking at that right now. The cost is to be around $25 million. Whether the Agency would be able to do that and move forward. That would have to occur before November 1st of this year. Also, as you know, there have been a lot of discussions the past few months. Agency is considering legal action. The League of California Cities and the California Redevelopment Association, both of whom have claimed the Bill is in conflict with Prop. 22, which the voters passed last year, it prohibits the State from diverting funds from local development. There's an interesting discussion to have over the coming months about the impact going forward. The Governor did sign that Legislation on June 29th it is effective immediately. The City has until November 1st  to make a decision about the alternative measure  The next thing I wanted to mention -- as you know, there are couple of ballot measures the Board has placed on the ballot. I sent a memo to staff, just reminding all of us the measure is on the ballot. Staff is not allowed to use office resources or spend City time to provide our analysis of the ballot measure, as long is it is impartial and does not advocate one way or another. One measure that is of interest to you, the proposal to prohibit demolition of 15 or more units on a single property, except under certain conditions that ballot measure is one of three. One of those more pertinent to our work. The one exception to our taking the position is we are allowed to attend the hearing next week at the Board to talk about what the Department believes, an analysis about the ballot measure. The Board has asked us to attend that hearing next week which is the same time as this hearing. I will probably be attending that meeting next week, next Thursday afternoon. The way the timing works at the Board -- there were four sponsors.  If one of the sponsors -- and I cannot remember the date, within a couple of weeks – If a sponsor pulls from being a sponsor, they pull their name from the ballot. But it cannot be changed, it can only be removed from the ballot.  And finally, I just want to say that next Wednesday, there is a ribbon cutting on Powell Street for another one of our Pavement to Parks projects that staff has worked very heavily on. It is where the cable car turns, effectively extends that first block through the street and creates some much more pedestrian-oriented area. Found a private sponsor to provide funds.  Staff has worked on this for a long time. That ribbon cutting is next Wednesday at 10:00 A.M., on Powell Street. That concludes my presentation.

COMMUNITY VISION FOR SAN FRANCISCO’S NORTHEAST WATERFRONT - On July 8, 2010, the Commission acknowledged the work of Department staff in completing the Northeast Embarcadero Study and recognized the design principles and recommendations of the study for public realm improvements and new development in the area. At that same hearing, the Commission also urged the Port of San Francisco to consider the principles and recommendations of the Northeast Embarcadero Study when considering public infrastructure improvements in the study area. Separately, a citizens group prepared its own study entitled “A Community Vision for San Francisco’s Northeast Waterfront” and has requested that they be given the opportunity to present their work to the Commission. It is this group’s study that is the subject of this informational presentation.

THE 34TH AMERICA’S CUP AND JAMES R. HERMAN CRUISE TERMINAL AND NORTHEAST WHARF PLAZA BRIEFING - Informational Hearing                  

-   34th America’s Cup Project Description: The 34th America’s Cup project sponsors—the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) and the America’s Cup Event Authority—propose to host the 34th America’s Cup (AC34) sailing races in San Francisco Bay. A series of AC34 yacht races would be held in San Francisco Bay in 2012 (America’s Cup World Series) and in 2013 (Louis Vuitton Cup, America’s Cup Challenger Series; potential America’s Cup Defender Selection Series; and the Match). Several of the venues proposed for the AC34 events are piers, water areas, and facilities managed by the Port of San Francisco (Port) including: Piers (Piers 19, 19½, 23, 27-29½, 26, 28, 30-32, and 80), water basins/water areas (Piers 9, 9-15, 17-19, 19-23, 23-27, 29‑31, 14-22½, 26‑28, 28-30, and 32-36), and Seawall Lot 330.  Various other venues are proposed for spectator‑related activities, some of which are under the jurisdiction of other city, state or federal agencies, including Crissy Field, Marina Green, Fort Mason, Aquatic Park, Alcatraz Island, Fort Baker Pier at Cavallo Point (near Sausalito), San Francisco Civic Center, Union Square, and Justin Herman Plaza. The event venues would include team bases and operations, support space, media operations, hospitality services, sponsored commercial space, entertainment and spectator areas, and temporary berthing and mooring facilities for race-related and spectator vessels. Most of the facilities would be temporary and removed at the conclusions of the events, although certain permanent infrastructure improvements would be required at some of the proposed venue sites within the Port's jurisdiction. The proposed project also includes a number of implementation plans that address transportation management, waste management, parks coordination and management, sustainability, water and air traffic, public safety, youth involvement, and workforce development. The project would also require amendments to the Special Area Plan (SAP) adopted by the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC).

- Cruise Terminal Project Description: The Port of San Francisco proposes the development of Pier 27 as the James R. Herman Cruise Terminal and Northeast Wharf Plaza, which is proposed to be phased to allow proposed America’s Cup Village uses at Piers 27-29, including an initial phase of the cruise terminal building, for the 2013 America’s Cup races. The Cruise Terminal project would involve demolition of the existing Pier 27 shed, a portion of the Pier 29 shed, and Pier 27 Annex Building. The remainder of the Pier 29 shed would be retained and rehabilitated, and the Belt Line office building would be retained. Proposed improvements to complete the cruise terminal and wharf plaza would be built out after the AC34 races are concluded. The proposed two-story cruise terminal building would be approximately 91,200 square feet in size and would occupy a footprint of approximately 46,100 square feet along Pier 27. The Pier 27 cruise terminal would be designed to handle vessels carrying 2,600 to up to 4,000 passengers. The cruise terminal would include an approximately a 3-acre ground transportation area, which would be located in the center of Piers 27-29, to support access, drop-off, and exiting by trucks, taxis, buses, and passenger vehicles to meet both ship provisioning and passenger loading needs of the cruise terminal. The cruise terminal would also accommodate other uses between ship calls, such as public or private gatherings, and maritime-oriented events. The Northeast Wharf Plaza would provide an approximately 2½-acre open space at the south end of Pier 27, fronting along The Embarcadero promenade and would include a multi-use recreational space containing natural turf; pavers, concrete seating/steps and planters; and ancillary structures for commercial and recreational services. The cruise terminal and wharf plaza project would also require amendments to the SAP adopted by BCDC.

   Preliminary Recommendation: Informational only; no Commission action.

At this time, members of the public may address the Commission on items of interest to the public that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Commission except agenda items.  With respect to agenda items, your opportunity to address the Commission will be afforded when the item is reached in the meeting with one exception.  When the agenda item has already been reviewed in a public hearing at which members of the public were allowed to testify and the Commission has closed the public hearing, your opportunity to address the Commission must be exercised during the Public Comment portion of the Calendar.  Each member of the public may address the Commission for up to three minutes.

 

The Brown Act forbids a commission from taking action or discussing any item not appearing on the posted agenda, including those items raised at public comment.  In response to public comment, the commission is limited to:

 

(1)  responding to statements made or questions posed by members of the public; or

(2)  requesting staff to report back on a matter at a subsequent meeting; or

(3)     directing staff to place the item on a future agenda.  (Government Code Section 54954.2(a))
