5:30 pm
do a report out for the revolution conference that he attended earlier this month. at the hyatt just in time. he is by his microphone. it was a great conference, 1200 people, 75 speakers and great to hear from ed from the mta and the mtc and i think that for me, the most important parts were looking at transit authority and development and putting the e in to the tod or the equity and for real liveable cities. and to really build more sustainable but also equitable for the low income people that the communities are protected. i think that amy really had the great perspective and really as usual, the transform staff like ramos and our mta commissioner did a great job integrating the great transit thinking with the housing development and land use
5:31 pm
policy. and i also wanted to say that a lot of the tours were pretty amazing for the visitors from around the country as well. and a great panel with christie wang from spur on housing and how we merge housing developments that is equitable with the transportation policy as well. and i wanted to last say that was a fun conference, and they, kind of wonky but building in lots of interesting ways to talk about complex and challenging policies. i think that kim, from the tech crunch to many of the others, talked about the challenges with the innovation capitol of the world. the san francisco sil con, valley, bay area, but many other regions are looking towards us for how we do it right. and i wanted to at last say that i think that conferences like this are great for the networking but for me, it is like the synergism and the intersectionality of the work that a lot of people are doing and hats off to the organizers,
5:32 pm
especially the low income investment fund and others who really insuring that the vision of equity and social justice is integrated into the transportation planning, thank you. >> and thank you, commissioner mar. okay. i see no other names pish r withishing to speak, is there any public comment on item two? seeing none, public comment is closed. this is an information item. item three? >> three. executive director's report. this is an information item. >> miss chang. >> thank you. and commissioners before you today are three reports from my monththy report as well as two updates on the projects. first off at the federal level, good news on that safety front, the u.s. department of transportation has also announced its commitment to end traffic deaths with a launch of its road to zero plan to reduce and eliminate the traffic fatalities by 20 and in 30 years, and so in about 2046 and
5:33 pm
later, in october, we also saw support by the league of cities, which adopted a resolution, supporting vision zero initiative and it will require, consistent and unified advocacy from the california cities, including san francisco, la and san diego and, san jose, and so we are really thrilled with the developments at the federal and the state levels to support the local effort and to continue the collaboration that we have begun here locally. and another up date on the federal front is that the nation alien vier mental policy, and the delegation to the cal transand the risk of expiring and this is back to 2007, when california was the first state to be delegated by the federal government, from the usdot, federal highway administration. but that sunset provision for the expiration date of that authority is january, 2017, and unfortunately, efforts to reup on that to extend that sunset, failed earlier, in this
5:34 pm
legislative session, however there is two more options. with the special session, that continues to late november. as well as potentially in the bill in december that will allow for the cal transto retain that delegate authority. and so meanwhile, we are supporting the advocacy, by the cal trans, for both of these options and we will work with the partners at the self-help counties to take action quickly and allow for the projects to continue unimpeded and without interruption. >> and so chair, weiner it you so much for coming and speaking again. and at our westbound, i80 celebration and it was a wonderful opportunity to highlight the new capacity and the new partnerships that we have developed as we have implemented this important project. it was very exciting and it was very festive and i would also like to recognize our past director, jose who worked together with lee and also, with eric, back then at that stage as well. and previous, administrations of the mayor's administration and our chair at the time, chair
5:35 pm

5:38 pm
working with our federal partners who are roo he viewing the final document. and the last steps before we can release it is to obtain their approval in the next few weeks, following the release, we anticipate, holding a brt citizen's meeting in mid novemeber, where the citizens advisory committee can indicate its support for preferred alternatives and then, the next step would be for that decision to come to this body as well as the sfmta board and so we will continue to support this with an out reach, effort once the environmental document is released. but we have been presenting along the way, updates on what we have heard what we have done in response to the tremendous, public input that we have received to date. and so, i encourage the folks to check out geary which is the website on the project. the related news on van ness is that we are entering doo construction, and so congratulations to the sfmta and

5:44 pm
minutes? seen none, is there any public comment? seeing none, closed. could you call the roll on four? >> avalos. >> aye. >> breed. >> aye >> campos. >> aye. >> cohen. >> aye. >> farrell. >> aye. >> kim. >> aye. >> mar. >> aye. >> peskin. >> aye. >> tang. >> aye. >> commissioner weiner. >> aye. >> commissioner, yee in >> aye. >> and then the minutes are approved. >> okay. and item number five? >> item five, execute a memo of agreement with the treasure island development authority for the yerba buena island, vice ta point, operations services in an amount not-to-exceed, $500,000 through december, 31 gs, and negotiate the agreement terms and this is an action item. >> commissioner peskin? >> thank you chair weiner. and i was, i know that this was
5:45 pm
present in plans and programs. and quite frankly i cannot remember the answer. but i was just concerned that we were spending a half a million dollars on a temporary item that would be removed in less than two years from when it was built. so. i was cer yus as to why we are doing this. >> all right, miss chang? >> yeah, i might ask eric to elaborate on my response if i don't get it all. right. but commissioner, peskin thank you for the question, the idea here is to insure that we have a safe and welcoming and receiving area for visitors to the island once the pass has opened and we wanted to be able to have permanent safety feature and there is some of that will be permanent and others of those services like some of the bathrooms and hydrations may be just for a limited period and theyed is to have a safe and a welcoming mra is for visitors and i will have eric add to that. >> yes, definitely. a great question commissioner
5:46 pm
peskin. and these are, they are temporary in nature, and these are maximum budget amount of 500,000 all the way through the end of 2018. and we are currently right now, working with the state of california, in the area of the toll authority to go ahead and institute some additional improvements in the area that frankly would put us in a position to send a lot less than 500,000, and so we are managing that accordingly with all of the stake holders. >> i might submit to you colleagues, that maybe when we have a smaller not-to-exceed amount, and i mean that i don't want to say not-to-exceed half a million, when it should be not-to-exceed 200,000 or 300,000. why don't we wait until they narrow that amount down. and appropriate ate what needs to actually be appropriate ated. >> i am sorry, could you -- i don't think that i understand what you are suggesting. >> the operations and maintenance of the vita point
5:47 pm
include security. as well as just over all maintenance, and garage pick up as well as the shuttle. and so those have been budgeted for a maximum not-to-exceed of $ $500,000. and that is through december of 2018. >> what may occur, and which is very much likely, is that we will start construction in that area, which would put us in a position where we would stop these temporary service frz occurring. and start construction in the area in question. >> so, our thought process was to make sure that we covered what would be the maximum through december, 2018. and so it could be a situation whereas early as the end of 17, that we will start construction and in the area there, and rebuilding the on and off-ramp structure and rebuilding the areas in question, there with the eastbound off-ramps. >> i appreciate it and in terms of what commissioner peskin was suggesting i was not fully understanding what you were suggesting. >> what i was suggesting is that in so far as this all seems to
5:48 pm
be in flux and this may be resolved in 17, i am just not sure why we are agreeing to execute an memo of agreement. when everything is still in flux. >> you are saying that it should be shorter. or a smaller amount for a shorter period of time? >> when the staff can tell us, what really is going to happen, then we should enter into the memo with much more fixed time flames and dollar amounts that was my point. >> did you want to add something? >> certainly. commissioner peskin nour concern and your suggestion there. and perhaps we could limit the period of the mou to the spring and then come back to the board and provide an up date and then potentially extend that. i think what eric is referring to is the potential beginning of our west side, ramps yekt and also the interchange project that is literally before the state right now, in terms of decision about funding and so that will be very easy for us to do is come back in the spring
5:49 pm
and i would suggest that as a way forward. >> and so the 500,000 has already been budgeted and in our office, budget. >> yeah, it is running the shuttle and some of the security and the maintenance. >> it is budgeted as part of the project now, and the approximately, 2 million dollars has been budgeted for the temporary vista point of which one million comes from the authority and one million from the ybi ramps project. >> and so the suggestion is perhaps, executing the mlu through the end of april or the end of may, instead? >> yes, we could do that, and come back and report and extend that at that time. >> okay. >> so, okay, great. so perhaps an amendment by the end of may and just to give the flexibility. >> and yes, that will be fine. >> and we will take that up after public comment. >> any other questions or comments? okay. and is there any public comment on item five. please come forward.
5:50 pm
hi, commissioners my name is jessy and i am the director of the bicycle coalition and we are thrilled about this project and i know that in your attachment and the memo there is a drawing of everything that is going on, and i saw a version of that, that had all of the different time lines with ticd, and cal trans, and mtc and, mta, and i think that i have counted all of the different agencies perhaps there are more. but there are a lot of moving parts, but what is not a moving part is the fact that starting on sunday, this past sunday at noon, the people biking and walking could finally make it to oakland all the way to san francisco on the district six in the yerba buena island, and it is important that these pieces all move together, and i appreciate the comments and a lot of moving parts and with he have been disappointed by cal transand not waiting to make sure that the landing is
5:51 pm
properly safe and welcome for the people that actually get on to san francisco and so your concerns are i think, heard from the aed vdvocates and the staff well. and the people are already there and so your attention to this and making sure that both the shuttle and the money is allocated to make sure that the point is welcoming to the public. and it is really important to us, and our membership, and we are just thrilled that this project is moving for ward, thank you. >> thank you, very much. >> is there any additional public comment on item five? seeing none, public comment is closed. okay. and commissioner peskin, perhaps you could make or offer an amendment and actually maybe we should make it through june 30th to the end of the fiscal year and so that we don't have that -- so we will have that match up? >> sure, so perhaps on in the title we should say through strike december 31, 2018 and turn it to june, 30, 2017.
5:52 pm
and in the body of the instrument on page 2, in the first whereas, make the same change. and in the resolve, the first resolve, make the same change. >> okay. >> does that sound --. >> that sounds fine. >> okay. >> great. >> okay, so commissioner peskin has made a motion to amend, and seconded by commissioner tang. and colleagues could we take that amendment without objection? it is adopted. and on the underlying item, could we take item 5, as amended, the same house same call, without objection? that will be the order. item 6. >> allocate $12,713,969 in prop k funds with conditions for two requests, subject to the attached fiscal year, cash flow distribution schedules, this is an action item. >> are there any questions or comments on item six? >> seeing none, is there any
