12:11 pm
component of san francisco's transportation future significant specifically subways and want to knowledge the planning department in this work as well the subway division is generated out of an ordinance by supervisor wiener isn't fall of 2015 and supervisor wiener is really about not losing momentum on transit investments for the city we think about the first iteration of subway we wanted to frame what is subways are their characteristics and how policy guidance how we think about implementing delivering the subways for the city of san francisco also an operator a start find a conversation not predetermining who might run the subways in the city and thinking about initial candidate corridor they make sense the work will feed into the sf program and the rated
12:12 pm
this is the start avenue conversation this allows moving large volumes of people in separated corridors quickly he's a trade off we're delivery process is very along the capital dollars are high in delivering those investments and they may not meet the needs of all travel choices and modes for the stations they may not allow everyone to get everyone where they want to go part of eco system we took a 3 pronged approach for the prior plan review and talked with san franciscans today about where they think subways are valuable and conducted new analysis in the prior plan saw a
12:13 pm
lot of great ideas that have not materialized but ideas that have for the corridors plan the central subway it is under construction and the brt project this past weekend and moving through the environmental review that is looking at what it comes next not the first time that san francisco has tried to think big about railing we saw a number of corridors we wanted to keep in mind as we forwarded this work. >> in trying to hear if san franciscans today, we decided to use the leverage of online proud sourcing for people to engage at their convenience from their home and really spend as much or little time to let them looking at the stopping stations and rail alignments how they fit
12:14 pm
into the current system we need to compliment that with outreach elements so we were touching folks may not have intersect access and have high internet 10 or penetration in our community and want to technique with us we had 34 pop up activities from the bayview and tenderloin and excelsior inwards we're heard back the online tool westbound extremely successful 26 unique submissions some were single lines people were drawing their commute trips and comprehensive networks and systems that includes the software stations and creative thinking with the island a couple down in the south of america and africa and australia by the way, you can
12:15 pm
see on the heat map on the online tools asked folks to draw their dream for the future we can interpret where people think their mobility is not met and a greater need for more streamlined travel the corridor is at top based on the heat map that is a point of information to understand where the perspective and realty in travel patterns online we also at the pop up design the tenderloin bayview and excelsior we were intercepting people on the streets by and large didn't hear and the transcription services a need for from folks not native english speakers and we can by and large is the one and thirty responses and the
12:16 pm
multiple hundreds of people we spoken with would not will have heard in these people that heat map to the pop up events we see some of the similar desire lines indicators of a greater market within the corridors and other lines as well and so we're glad to - >> i really appreciate that type of outreach and in district 11 in you look at who uses our public transportation system it is almost 95 percent people of color and immigrants and people whose language is in the english i appreciate that. >> so this is - we did our prior plan review we spoke with san franciscans today, we want to take those two information points and tie them together with the analytic work to think
12:17 pm
about where people need to move in the future and subways are the most appropriate with that, i'm going to turn it over to mraek to speak towards that work. >> good morning michael sweaters with the transportation authority we use the 20 first two data points and did analysis with the existing operational analyze and looking at 2040 and looked where the land use patterns were developing not only the ridership but the overall traffic demand people that are driving places there is a lot of travel demands xhertsd to traffic - high quality network like a subway we did look at density patterns this map shows with the population density and job
12:18 pm
density and looking ways those patterns develop into the future and then also looked at kind of where people patterns tend to develop if there is a u bic subway that helps us to understand where the demand is generated in the future from the 3 sets of information we - generated 3 types of corridors will fall into multiple bucket but one across town people want to get across san francisco and bart goes through the city from one side all the way to the other so people have a desire to get across town and the other a correction people want to get to the metro or other trunk lines regional trunk lines and the pure demand basis with transportation demand could be
12:19 pm
from as many transit and diving we likely see a lot of displaced in the future and as i mentioned some of the corridors will fall into multiple buckets before i talk about the maps don't get attached to them but we wanted to test what that looked like if we triple the subway within the city of san francisco we have $15 million today and another thirty miles with two concerts looking where we generate the most demands using the analysis okay. this is where we think he can generate ridership where people's designations if you look at this the lines in the geary area and then makes its way south by the golden gate park an extension of t third at the lombard and the underground part of t third and in addition
12:20 pm
the van ness area heading southeast into the south part of mission bay with the m and putting that both is the soma pulling it out of the metro and then we said okay. this is one comparison let's see if we have a different concept how to get more geographic coverage and looked at it trade offs between corridors and different alignments within a similar corridor that's why we came up with the system and the t third a line into hunters point shipyard and the fillmore and divisadero and then the extension will be going to the physics rather than the lombard for the t third and the geary is out towards the beach and this is corridors not streets but in the vicinity and underground
12:21 pm
with the existing m with the mission bay and on the southern part of city some couple of those were shown including the extension of the m line and the geneva corridor so we looked at sort of what the potential for those kinds of system and we did find if we were able to do something as monumental tripling the subways in san francisco we'll have significant benefits including major traffic times, savings about 25 minutes for travelers on a given trip 10 to 15 minutes round trip by quoting the system we'll be able so have the bart's level in the 90 percent no union train will be arriving at that time, the significance of ridership 10 to 15 percent and under either of
12:22 pm
the corridors nektsd you'll see grandchildren 40 percent of san franciscans being able to walk to they're walking danced to the station we did an outlook and found it low income residents benefits at a larger rate than the population at large and this is a complicated map to show you the analysis looking at the traffic time for the zones across the city blue is increases and red is increases in travel time this year to the concept b the hunters point shipyard there was a direct line improves a significant amount of time at this point we know there are major network benefits and there are some next steps to you to do the hard work of
12:23 pm
prioritizing and an incremental way to develop the projects with that, to graham. >> thanks michael as i mentioned the thirty miles of subway will not materialize overnight but incredibly build out for the - where will we be moving the most people and the new investments and new subways compliment and provided synergy benefits to the system we're thinking from an interaction and build a robust system we don't want to leave anyone behind especially the needs of the high
12:24 pm
capacity reliable transit those are representative but want to frame the thinking how will we decide which routes corridors we want to think that prioritizing for investments and as i mentioned this the division the start of conversation but there is lots of other areas to be thinking dramatic and in an efficient like manner and funding is an easy one thirty miles of subway the funding stream didn't seem realistic in our lifetime maybe a change heed of us but we need to look at expanding resourcing and need to think about how we are delivering and speed up the timeline from a cost to calendar and schedule perspective and the cac report
12:25 pm
talked about land use not in the likelihood of major, major investments in the city without a conversation about land use and the number of people that those investment will be available for and how we can move and grow as a city those things need to be talked about together their intrinsically linked and lastly sorry not lastly conditioned inclusive and open outreach those decisions need to be made together the only way to be successful in that building champion champions of the community level and champions at the regional and federal level as well those these things need to come together to push forward individual elements of the subway divisions so we'll or we're going to incapsulate and
12:26 pm
the work didn't stop there will feed into the connect sf program a misrepresent departmental collaborative effort not only the subways but the whole eco system the eco system is not the silver bullet all needs to create the comprehensive mobility network that san francisco will need to be a desirable liveable place to live and competitive and reach the goals we've reached for ourselves the connect sf is underway and reach this fall with a survey talking about the core values how people think about the future of transportation in san francisco and into 2015 continued in that outreach and stakeholder activities. >> with that, i'd like to open up to any questions.

1:57 pm
reforms the last month we held a hearing in the blooper they were talking about 200 and 72 recommends that were presented and the board has also held hearing on the civil grand juries on officer-involved shootings those are difficult but critical conversations to have amongst the policymakers in the city that's exactly i didn't did work with any staff to pass the ordinance last year and really have been pleased to hear from several members of sfpd limp that the report has produced some eye opening moments from the department has been a long standing issue and we are taking steps to move beyond the fact finding phase we have 5 separate report we can
1:58 pm
point to that have collectively provided 5 hundred, 5 hundred recommendations to approve our police department so why are we are doing all of this you might ask i'm hopeful with all the investigation work and the actions that we will take to implement the recommendation that we really might begin to start to gain some of the public's trust and confidence back because we received information about what improvements to the police department and in our last meeting want to focus on how the recommendations will change will be implemented paying attention to a timeline i think with supervisor campos in participate mentioned in the last meeting we need an aggressive timeline i'm in disagreement to that end will be as follows: brief rangers
1:59 pm
from the mayor's office and a representative from the public defender's office and we'll hear from a presentation and updated presentation from the intern chief chaplin there's a lot of information we'll need to cover here so colleagues in order to get through this i'll ask to the greatest tint possibly hold the questions to the at the end of the presentation so the presenter can get through and than a q and a session now i'd like to bring up. >> supervisor cowen before we bring up the representative of the from mayor's office i want to give commissioner president loftus an opportunity to provide remarks. >> we did that already. >> i said welcome potentially was enough in fairness i want to say on behalf of the police
