[ roll call. ] >> clerk: so moved, commissioners. that motion passes unanimously 6-0. that places us under your regular calendar for item 8,
6:10 am
case number 2018-0104018, the fiscal year for 2019-2020 proposed department budget work program for your consideration of adoption. >> thank you, jonas. good afternoon again, commissioners. john ram, department staff. we're here to ask for your recommendation to the planning commission on our next fiscal year budget. this year, the budget is a little boring in that as he talked about last time, it is kind of a toddy state budget. it is not increasing nor decreasing by any amounts. there are some slight adjustments to the work plan based on some slight minor organization of the department, but based on the revenues which are kind of holding at a very high level but none theless holding steady, we are proposing no major if you will, changes to our financial revenues or ex-expenditures. i will ask debra landis to come
6:11 am
up and tell you about some changes that happened last time and then we'll ask for your approval. >> good afternoon, commissioners. debra landis. as john mentioned, it is a fairly steady budget, and even with having come to you before the budget system opened, the change in the total budget from what we presented last time is $16,000, so we're pretty right on. we don't even have very many changes to discuss from two weeks ago when we were here. so with that, i wanted to briefly review the timeline, go over our revenue and expenditure projections, and then go over, again, the detail around historic preservation, showi showing -- knowing that's an area of interest for the
6:12 am
commission. so if you recall, we were here on january 17th. we went to the planning commission on the 25th. we are here again today for our final presentation, asking for your recommendation to the planning commission that they approve this budget to move forward to the mayor's office. we will be presenting to them tomorrow. the mayor's office as part of the city charter is required to get all department budgets by february 21st, and then, they have it for a couple of months. they give it to the board of supervisors on june 1st, and then, we go through board hearings in the month of june, and the final final budget is adopted in july of each year. so it looks like the screen got cutoff a little bit here. hopefully, your handouts, you're able to see the numbers more clearly at the bottom with
6:13 am
the totals. so we are going down slightly by a few hundred thousand dollars from the current year adopted budget to the '18-'19 proposed budget, and if you'll recall that had to do with a lot of one time expenses that were in our budget for this year that are not in for next year, as well as a flat projection that we are seeing from our building permit and flat review fees. the charges for services are these application and review fees, grants and special revenue are where we apply and hopefully get money from outside entities to fund specific projects. the very small number of the office of community investment is the california reveemt agency dissolved. the redevelopment efforts are part of the city but they're not exactly part of the city's
6:14 am
budget, so we have their own line for them. development impact fees, we administer the interagency group ipic, which administers the area plan impact fees, so we receive money for the administration of that which includes staff time and in the ju bet years also includes money for a nexus study and study relates to the impact fees. and in the current year we got some funding for specific projects, specifically for the rail project, and that decreases because it is one time funding. looking at expenditure recovery, that is when we spend time for other city departments that they reimburse us for, so we're recovering our staff time costs from the other city departments. and general fund support makes up the rest of it. so if you recall, we are mostly a self-supporting department with a small amount of general
6:15 am
fund coming in, and the mayor's office, this year, as they did last year, asked for a reduction from the base general fund number that was in our budget year, and so we have reduced from the base budget number as they requested. for our department, it ended up being about $95,000 for each year, and we did take that reduction. on the expenditure side, as always, salaries and fringe, the staff are the largest cost for the department. the overhead number there is a county wide allocation that is assigned by the controller's office. it's possible it may change during a later phase in the budget, but as far as we're aware, it's going to remain the same in the 775,000 range. the nonpersonal services are all of the services that are not provided by staff, so we're talking about software, we're
6:16 am
talking about licensing, we're talking about contracts with consultants and -- the services that we contract out. for materials and supplies, fairly self-explanatory. then, there's a threshold between materials and supplies and capital and equipment, which is $5,000 and a useful life of three years or more, so materials and supplies, we're talking about computers, we're talking about paper and pens, the smaller items, the chairs that we sit in, those kinds of things. you will see that there is a jump in the out year, the '19-'20, budget, and that is related to the move. we are anticipating a one-time cost. we'll have to buy some new things when we move into that building. for capital and equipment, this is mostly related to the one time funding project that we have, and we do have in the
6:17 am
current year an i.t. expense related to a current piece of equipment that's a little larger and more expensive, and we are not anticipating capital equipment in the second year right now. when we come back a year from now, and that second year is our first year, it may change, but for the best of our knowledge, at this time, we have our capital expenses about even in current year, '18-'19 year, and then we have a break from those costs. projects, a lot of this relates to the grants and the one-time funding, projects like the rail yard alignment one, where we had a few million dollars in the current year. a lot of that was considered to be a project expense. and then, this is where it's the other way around, where we pay the city attorney,
6:18 am
department of telecommunications for our i.t., a lot of infrastructure that we pay for them. a lot of city departments, we all charge each other. we recover our costs from the services we provide them, and they recover their costs from the services they provide to us. so the changes that i wanted to bring up is -- the screen up there is a bit bright for my eyes. okay. the position changes from the prior year that i wanted to talk about are the shift from four seek rarelated positions from current planning to environmental planning, we shifted one from planning to citywide, three from citywide to current, and then we are proposing one new position related to accessory dwelling units. we've seen a big increase in those applications. the workload is large enough to
6:19 am
support a person, and the revenue is also large enough to support a position. so we are including that in our proposal for the year. as john mentioned, it's mostly shifting, so you can see that the -- the work programs are essentially the same. we have, again, the one new edu position, and then, the overall count of the department remains steady. in terms of historic preservation, most of the current falls under work planning, there is some that falls under environmental, which i have noted in the slide this time around. it was an oversight last time. usually for current planning, i just took and pasted it in from this slide, but i do want to make sure that we are all aware that the environmental work is still supporting historic
6:20 am
preservation, so it's back in here now. and then, we do have some additional resources in addition to the staff time that's dedicated to historic preservation, so we have some contract moneys for ceqa review, some for the survey, the citywide survey, the grants from the office of historic preservation. we always get -- or we have traditionally received the friends of city planning preservation library grants. in the current year, we received an african american civil rights grant that we do not expect in the next year, but we are expecting an lgbtq cultural strategy heritage grant that we did not receive in the current year. and all of the information until this slide has been information you've seen before.
6:21 am
the legislative changes that we are proposing with the budget are two. one is a slight language change in the code enforcement fund. currently, we collect money from enforcement revenue in a variety of different enforcement activities, but the way the planning code and the administrative code were each written and the timing of when they were written, all of the enforcement money is forced to be spent on only sign enforcement, so we'd like to aremo aremove -- remove the word sign to allow money that's collected from enforcement to be used on enforcement. we are proposing a lower tier fee, which is a circulation review fee, that would be for
6:22 am
those transportation simpler projects. so instead of somebody coming in with a simple project, paying the $25,000 that the more complex projects pay, they would have a fee that's between a third and a half of that cost. we are also doing that in conjunction with mta. they are changing their transportation fees and transportation code around those fees, specifically around this transportation review and the circulation analysis in partnership. the two departments had worked together to develop this proposal. and with that, if there are any questions, i'd be happy to take them. >> commissioners, any questions about the budget? no, i don't think we have any questions -- oh, commissioner johnck? >> commissioner johnck: i was interested to know on the
6:23 am
preservation specific legislation coordination, what are some of laws? i know we've had some presentations on some of the legislation. in fact i think there was an ordinance relating to cultural heritage thumbing through the city. you have some specifics on types of legislation that we're looking at? >> i am going to refer that question to tim frye. >> tim frye, department staff. that line item is to accommodate any of our work with the legislative team. as you know, any legislation that affects article 10 or 11 buildings or historic resources in the city does necessitate reviewing comment by this body. so for instance, like the cultural heritage district, pending legislation, our time devoted to working with the legislative team, that's where that money is allocated from. >> commissioner johnck: okay. also, would that include state, for instance, some of the issues related to housing, and
6:24 am
the whole panoply -- >> yes. >> commissioner johnck: okay. thank you. >> president wolfram: okay. at this time, we'll take public comment on this matter. any members of the public wishing to make a comment, please come forward. seeing none, we'll close public comment. commissioners, is there a motion to recommend this to the planning commission? >> motion. >> second. >> clerk: commissioners, there is a motion to adopt a recommendation for approval. [ roll call. ] >> clerk: so moved, commissioners. that motion passes unanimously, 6-0. >> president wolfram: thank you for your very clear presentation. >> thank you. appreciate it. >> clerk: commissioners, that'll place us on items 9 a, b, c, b, and e for items
6:25 am
2018-001174 lvr, 2018-0011 # 4 lvr, 2018-1176 lvr, and 2018-1258 lvr for properties at 2676 bluxome street, 33311th street, and 294816th street respectively, these are legacy business applications. >> today, we have five business legacy registry applications to review. staff is recommending approval of all five, so i'm going to quickly describe them for you and note any recommendations that we're making and to change
6:26 am
any of the character defining features that are listed and i'll turn it over to any of the applicants that are here to speak about their businesses. so the first business listed in your case report is babylon burning screen printing. this is a traditional screen printing shop that specializes in production. it was founded by city of pste in 1980, however he did start the business in his garage in bernal heights in 1976. the business made many t-shirts for the music scene and particularly bands that played in the neighborhood. they also did much -- a lot of printing for groups like act up, central american consolidarity committee, mother jones, and sisters of perpetual
6:27 am
indulgence. staff is recommending full support of the application. we don't have any additional recommendations for their application. the next business is the mindful body. it is a wellness business that opened in april 1994. it's the only business on the -- on your list this month that is less than 30 years of age, but we did find that due to the threat of displacement and due to the significance of the business as one of the early -- early providers of wellness and yoga services in the city that it qualifies despite it's less than 30 years of age. the mindful body was at the starting of the -- starting
6:28 am
wave of when yoga centers and studios began opening in the city. the business also offered a variety of free form movement classes as well as medtation, alexander technique, dance, movement, nutrition, readings, therapeutic massage as well as other types of therapeutic services. and the mindful body now focuses its energy, particularly on yoga, message and acupuncture, and staff is recommending full recommendation is no additional character defining features. next is the plow and stars. this is an irish public and local music venue that opened in 1975 at 117 clement street in the richmond district. the venue promotes traditional irish music. sean heaney i emigrated to san
6:29 am
francisco in the early 1980's, and when sean took over the plow and stars, he continued and significantly expanded the traditional irish music. currently, the plow and stars host events put on by the irish american cross roads festival which aims to expose and celebration irish culture and music. we would like to note the sign and the traditional storefront components which include the large glass panels and wood trim. the next business is slim. this is a live business night club opened in 1980 by b boz scaggs. it's been located on 11th
6:30 am
street in the south of market neighborhood since its inception in 1988. although the club originally focused in r&b music, it's currently open to all different types of music. staff is open to approving the recommendation. and last today is the lab sf. the business is located in the red stone building on 16th street. this is formerly the san francisco labor temple and is landmark number 238. this is a not for profit arts organization and performance space. it was founded in 1984 by art students from the san francisco state university. the lab is a site for interdisciplinary artistic production and it is a catalyst for artistic experimentation.
6:31 am
the lab commissions three ambitious art projects each year, and staff is supporting recommendation with no additional comments, so i'm going to turn it over to the applicants that are here today. >> president wolfram: thank you, so at this time if any applicants wish to speak as part of public comment, this is your opportunity. you'll have three minutes, and i have a speaker card for dennis juarez. >> hello. my name is dennis juarez. i'm the operations manager at slim's, and i feel like i'm becoming an old hand at this. i was here last year for the great american music hall, and we got our legacy business taken care of then. now it's slim's turn. i haven't been there all 30 years. i started in 1994, and in 1994, the south of market area where slim's is located was completely different than it is
6:32 am
now. and at that time, during lunch, i might see ten people walk past the club, but every one of those ten would stop in front of the door and look at the calendar and study the calendar and write down who was going to be coming up, and they were music lovers, and everybody cared. today, i'll see 400 people, 500 people, maybe more, walking back and forth, and if i'm lucky, i'll see ten people stop and look at the music, or the music calendar because unfortunately, what i'm finding out is that even though there's an influx of people in the south of market area, they're so work centered, and they -- even the -- the start-ups that have opened up adjacent to us in our back alley, no one, not a single person in the last three years has come up and asked me if they could come to
6:33 am
a show, and i find that so amazing and surprising, too. so i'd like to think with the help of the legacy business program here, slim's will remain there and be a cultural and musical icon for those who at least want to try and see some music or try and come to a benefit. we have weddings there and everything else, too. at least we're there. you can lead a horse to water, but you the make them drink, and that's so true with music, too. so i'm hoping -- well, like shelley did say, when slim's first opened, it was primarily r&b and blues and things like that. but musical tastes have changed, and today, it's more computer-driven music, and it's not my cup of tea, but we are branching out and doing a little bit of everything. you have to to keep the doors open. but when the 17-year-old kids
6:34 am
come to see some electronic dance music, hopefully they'll at least look on the calendar and say oh, yeah, the buzzcocks are coming. my dad loves those, too. so thank you. >> president wolfram: thank you. anybody else wish to speak on these items, any of the legacy business owners wish to speak today? yes. come forward. >> hi. my name's mike lynch. i'm the owner of babylon burning screen printing. let me throw my gum away. i wanted to thank shelley and a whole bunch of other people that helped us put this all together and it was -- it was great because i know a lot about the business. i worked there when i was a teenager, when i moved here in the '80's, went onto do other things, but then, the opportunity came up, and i was really close friends with the
6:35 am
owner, and he was burning out and just wanted to surf, so i took over. i didn't really want to talk about the history of the business as much as kind of touch on what dennis said about, like, now, like what is going on now. this is kind of ironic that we're here and kind of being acknowledged as a business that's been around for so long, but we're struggling so much. with the city with all the money -- and i've seen it happen for so long. i've been here for 40 years myself. with all the money, all the tech companies in soma, and it's changing so much, and there's buildings going up left and right in my -- right on my street, and they're not coming in. so my whole point is to thank the commission and this whole program thing to acknowledge the small local businesses
6:36 am
because all these small local businesses, everet middle school, slim's -- which i haven't printed for you in a while. we'll talk about that later. >> and plow and stars, i used to do printing for them, i'm struggling to keep going. january and february , for businesses, it's the slow period. i went to the bank to ask for a loan. i've been in business for so long, and i get denied a line of credit, and i can see it's not corporations that i need, it's not these tech companies that i need, i need these local small companies that keep the wheels going, so if you are helping these people with the legacy thing to continue on with their businesses, i'm going to continue. so thank you.
6:37 am
>> president wolfram: thank you very much. does any other member of the public wish to speak to this item? >> hi, members of the commission. my name is dina beard. i'm the director of the lab. so we're internationally renouned yet aware it's economically disadvantaged of one of the richest cities in the world. we are serious about making the model succeed as a funding model for new artists. recently over 40,000 donors, artists, audiences and volunteers have come together to ensure the lab's future in the city. its 34 year existence has depended solely on the expansive sense of family, a community that blurs backed up res between work and play. the pallor of this eclectic
6:38 am
effort continued to atostound . our aim is to provide artists and audiences with the time and space to experiment. our artists represent the depth and diversity of our dwindling working class in the bay area, and we sustain them because they make or city playful, reflective, and simply because they expand our perception of what is possible. we provide artists with funding up to $125,000 peryear, health benefits, and financial and legal counseling. we want audiences to be inspired how we work, not just what we produce. this all is housed for the san francisco labor temple, where for the last century citizens have sought many things. sadly, i could leave you today only to find out that we have been evicted.
6:39 am
our landlord is now seeking to sell the labor temple to the highest bidder, but our accessiblity to b.a.r.t. and the quality of our programs brings 10,000 audience members peryear to the lab, and i certainly hope if we are approved as a legacy business that we can continue to provide those services to the san francisco of the future. mostly, however, i hope we can come together in these places where labor and leisure are synonymous goals. we will continue to take our cues from artists, transforming ourselves and trying to hold on these spaces that give us agency, that show us a path forward. so thank you for your time, i hope to see you at the lab. >> president wolfram: thank you, miss beard. any other members of the public wish to speak on any of these legacy business applications?
6:40 am
>> good afternoon, commissioners. my name is miley cyber. i'm the owner of the mindful body. we've been open since '94 which is really when wellness centers started to open in san francisco, and we're a neighborhood center, but because we've been open so long, people come from all over the city to participate with us. so we offer therapeutic massage, and we offer yoga that is connected to the lineage and the roots of yoga. we have a really sweet, simple space. we're in a 1920's brick building, and we have these really old domed sky lights, so we have natural light
6:41 am
throughout our space. all the time, people tell us it feels like old san francisco in there. i hear that constantly, so it's really e really a place that you can be yourself. our lease is up this month. our landlord is considering a 50% increase to our rent, and for me, what having worked at the mindful body for 17 years, what the mindful body really offers to our community is we are a place of refuge. we are a real community. i have been to so many people's birthday parties and weddings of people that come there. we try to be inclusive, so we have programs for all people. we specialize in supporting expecting mothers, and we have a lot of programs for seniors and regular classes for seniors. we really are trying to teach tools and also provide services
6:42 am
for dealing with stress, for maintaining health, for healing and preventing injuries, for calming the nervous system, and these days, we are trying to help people deal with being in front of computers and devices all day, so that is something new we're trying to help people with. i've been there, again for 17 years. the city we all know has changed in the past 17 years, so people are more stressed, and they have less time in my experience. so i really feel we are an invaluable resource, and people need this more and more. we have 16 employees, so i'm really hoping to be able to continue being an old san francisco wellness community for our employees and all of our clients. so thank you. >> president wolfram: thank you. does any other member of the public wish to comment on these legacy business applications. seeing in hearing none, we'll bring it back to the commission. commissioners? commissioner johnck? >> commissioner johnck: i feel healed just listening to you,
6:43 am
and well. thank you. these were wonderful fans to the businesses. i guess i'm a little worried about the eviction. can our legacy program help with avoiding the eviction. >> shelley couch, attorney. i can attempt to answer that question. the recognition of being on the legacy business registry hopefully will have some weight in the negotiations. we do have the grant program, which is a separate application from the application to be placed on the registry, and that is handled through the office of small business, so it's unlikely that the grant could be approved in such a short amount of time; however, that -- that program is there, and the legacy business program is also working on developing other tools to support these
6:44 am
businesses and i'm hoping to come back to this commission in a few weeks or few months, possibly, to tell you about these tools. >> president wolfram: thank you. director ram? >> thanks. i have also been troubled by this particular case, and the redstone building was recently sold, and it was full of nonprofits, including artists and the theater. it happens to be a block from where i live. it is ae a great resource in the mission. it's very troubling that because of state law, we are limited in how much we can control not only evictions, but commercial rent control. we can't apply commercial rent control because of state law. we can do it on the residential side, not on the commercial side. it's really troubling. i have to say i don't know what to say about it, except we are working with the office of economic and workforce development to see what we can do for the nonprofit and arts community in the mission. it's part of the 2020 effort. we're trying to do some work
6:45 am
