11:00 pm
levels also over natoma street. you see a map of the west end of the facility. the line shows where the k rail will be located and where the loading docks, affected buildings are located as well. here, you see a section at 101st street, and this depiction here is where our shoring wall will be constructed and where the k rail would be and the amount of right of way that would be left to try to access these loading docks. here is a similar section at natoma street where the k rail will be located and where the shoring wall will be. recology provides both waste service, recycling, and compost
11:01 pm
service to the affected buildings. a total of four buildings are included in the agreement where the garbage service will be altered. in altering that, they will need to go to a smaller collection equipment or smaller waste containers and more frequent service patterns. this is an image of the type of equipment used in most of these facilities today. a large compacted that has been loaded on the back of the trucks, so this drop needs to look back into the loading bay, collect the container from the compact, and then drive out. that is the ability to back into the loading docks is what is going to be impacted. instead, it recology will be going to this type of equipment, to the smaller container that can be wheeled out in the right of way and then loaded on a front end loader into the dump truck. the agreement we have before you today is with recology to cover
11:02 pm
the collection of additional costs during construction, and we have taken the approach of having a single agreement rather than individual agreements with property owners to improve the invoicing and tracking and audit record. if you have any questions, i can take those now. >> i have a question that does not have to do with this contract. it was something to do with an entrance to the parking structure. >> there is not going to be lots of business claims or anything like that? >> we are working to maintain access. again, most of these buildings have parking access off of manitoba, and we are working to maintain that, but by narrowing the right of way to in some cases 11 to 15 feet, there is not enough room for the equipment to access the loading
11:03 pm
docks. >> one quick question. i can assume from the pictures that i saw, but no problems with fire trucks or emergency vehicles. you guys have considered that? >> yes, and running this through, the fire protection services and police. >director ford: it has been motion and seconded. all those in favor? opposed? >> all right, no members of the public indicated they wish to address you on the item appeared moving into the final item, which is approving the minutes of the march 10, 2011, meeting. director ford: it has been moved, seconded. all those in favor? opposed? >> all right, that concludes the agenda before you today. director ford: all right, that concludes the business of the authority. we will see you next month at our next meeting. meeting is adjourned.

>> in this fabulously beautiful persidio national park and near golden gate and running like a scar is this ugly highway. that was built in 1936 at the same time as the bridge and at that time the presidio was an army and they didn't want civilians on their turf.
11:21 pm
and the road was built high. >> we need access and you have a 70 year-old facility that's inadequate for today's transportation needs. and in addition to that, you have the problem that it wasn't for site extenders. >> the rating for the high viaduct is a higher rating than that collapsed. and it was sapped quite a while before used and it was rusty before installed. >> a state highway through a federal national park connecting an independently managed bridge to city streets. this is a prescription for
11:22 pm
complication. >> it became clear unless there was one catalyst organization that took it on as a challenge, it wouldn't happen and we did that and for people to advocate. and the project has a structural rating of 2 out of 100. >> you can see the rusting reinforcing in the concrete when you look at the edges now. the deck has steel reinforcing that's corroded and lost 2/3's of its strength. >> this was accelerated in 1989 when the earthquake hit and cal came in and strengthened but can't bring to standards.
11:23 pm
to fix this road will cost more than to replace. and for the last 18 years, we have been working on a design to replace the road way, but to do in a way that makes it appropriate to be in a national park and not army post. >> i would say it's one of the most ugly structure, and it's a barrier between the mar sh and presidio. and this is a place and i brought my dogs and grandchildren and had a picnic lunch and it was memorable to use them when we come here. what would it look like when the design and development is completed.
11:24 pm
and we are not sure we want an eight lane highway going through this town. and it's a beautiful area in a national seaport area on the planet. >> the road is going to be so different. it's really a park way, and it's a parkway through the national park. and they make the road disapeer to the national park. >> and the road is about 20 feet lower, normally midday, you go through it in two minutes. looking back from the golden gate bridge to presidio, you are more aware of the park land and less of the roads. and the viaduct will parallel the existing one and to the south and can be built while
11:25 pm
the existing one remains in operation. and the two bridges there with open space between them and your views constantly change and not aware of the traffic in the opposite direction and notice the views more. and the lanes of course are a foot wider than they are today. and they will be shoulders and if your car is disabled, you can pull off to the edge. and the next area, the tunnel portal will have a view centered on the palace of fine arts and as you come out, you can see alkatrez island and bay. and the next area is about 1,000 feet long. and when you come into one, you can see through the other end. it's almost like driving through a building than
11:26 pm
through a tunnel. and noise from the roadway will be sheltered. and the traffic will be out of view. >> when you come out of the last sort tunnel and as you look forward, you see the golden dome of the palace of fine arts and what more perfect way to come to san francisco through that gateway. >> it will be an amazing transformation. now you read it as one section, the road is a major barrier and then a wonderful strip along the water. all of those things are going to mesh together. >> right now the road really cuts off this area from public access. and with the new road, we will be able to open up the opportunity in a new way. >> this bunker that we see now
11:27 pm
is out of access for the general public. we are excited to completely rework this side and to open up the magnificent views. and what we want to do is add to this wonderful amenity and restore this coastal bluff area and respect its military history and the doyle drive project is allowing us to do that recorrection. and this area is not splintered off. >> and we can see how dramatic a change it will be when doyle drive is suppressd and you have a cover that connects the cemetery to this project. it's historic on the statewide
11:28 pm
and national basis, but you could rush the project or put thought and time to create something of lasting public benefit. >> we really want this, for everyone to feel like it's a win situation. whether you are a neighbor that lives nearby or a commuter or user of the park. that everyone will experience a much better situation than they currently have. >> the human interest to me is how people could work out so many challenging differences to come to a design that we believe will give us a jewel. landmark of a place. >> i am sure it will have refining effect like embark did. and there were people about that and no one would think of that today. and when you look at growth and
11:29 pm
transformation of the embark, the same with doyle. it will be a cherished part of the city and a worthy addition to what is there. >> it will be a safe and beautiful entrance to a spectacular beautiful city. it will be the entry to golden gate that san francisco deserves.
