7:00 pm
it including consideration of additional buses as well to take advantage of 101, exiting to the exceptiontention and new lane from the shoulder, a new tried lane created from the shoulder. that would cause a design exception to not standard. that is the potential solution we are looking at. regarding longer range we have to continue with the high-speed rail and get trains into transbay, allow buses to go from third street red lines. by looking at these together. i think we might want to rethink. how are we managing together with san mateo and and take
7:01 pm
clara. -- santa clara. if the decision is made to pursue express rains and if there are met revenues that will be important. on a holistic basis with our partners. >> chair peskin: in so far as commissioner cohen has not spoken. >> thank you for recognizing me. i put my name on the list because i wanted to just ask a couple questions to make sure the executive director had an opportunity to get in on this conversation. it is an important discussion to have. the supervise sour safai eraises important points. this will be a enormous number of new san francisco residents this is southeast. you mentioned the warrior
7:02 pm
stadium. you think about peer 70 and the illinois shipyard is 12,000 housing units. there is an incredible amount of congestion flooding into the city on the southeastern ordinary southwestern corridor. it is important that westin to have these conversations. i want to also thankfully for elaborating and acknowledge we are also doing a part of the congestion management study inside district 10. this works in concert with the other studies that have been conducted and future studies to come. this is not only about 101 but
7:03 pm
also 280. as we also think about does it remain? do we tear it own? how does that connect with high-speed rail? there are a lot of different large moving parts that are part of this conversation. i want to give toys to. >> commissioner sheehy. >> one last point. when i look at trying to machine age traffic coming into san francisco. you pay from the north and you pay from the east. if we are looking at doing this we should look at ways people have to pay to come in from the south. i see the hov lanes as a bod date and $6 million. the traffic congestion on the
7:04 pm
southeast side of town are going to explode. these aren't really solution. the solution to my mind is to make the southern routes to the city mirror the north and isocrats with a cost. thathat is my comments. >> chair peskin: commissioner kim. >> i know both commissioner cohen and i are looking at congestion pricing and it is great to hear from commissioner sheehy on this as well. it is important to put this problem into perspective. i appreciate the congestion management program. >> reporter: we got. it is astounding that we have added 50,000 new residents and 100,000 new jocks. the scale is hard to put into
7:05 pm
context. think about new york city with 8 million people. imagine if they added 1 million new jobs from 2009 that city would be in gridlock. in a city of 800,000 people in fine we have added 100,000 new jobs and 50,000 new residents. i think it is unfair for any city to have been ready for that time of growth -- type of growth. we were not prepared for reasonable growth. there is no way to predict and be prepared for this level of growth. i think that it is upon us to be creative and move ex peeddient leo the alternatives. we know the city is not working for workers and residents. some of that we planned for and
7:06 pm
some we couldn't have planned for that type of growth. it is important as commissioner sheehy mentioned there is pricing through the bay bridge for those from the east bay and north bay through golden gate bridge. it is important to look at something from the south bay. we really need to invest in alternative options attractive and reliable for our residents in san francisco. that is a big portion of our checks on the road and what is causing congestion today. >> chair peskin: any public comment on this interesting item? seeing none, public comment is closed. this is an information item. however, it does have implications relative to item
7:07 pm
number nine. we will have an interesting conversation about that in a short moment. mr. clerk, could you please call item number 8. >> allocates 335,200,500 in funds with two 00,000 in prop k funds for one request. this is an action item. >> good morning deputy director for policy and programming at the transportation authority. you have a handful of items in front of you today from the sfn of mta. first is $600,000 to replace the disconnect switches required to be manually operated. should they need to be operated. those switches allow for the
7:08 pm
power to be circulatessed between the wires. they flow through the conduits. mta is replacing them through a couple of different phases. this is one. the vanness bus programmed project will replace eight of the switches in the city. the rest will include are few file. it is a high price tag. it does include a significant amount of trenching and conduit work to replace the feeder cables underground and the switches are throughout the city some of the conduit work is relatively significant as far as mileage, as far as distance it will need to be connected to. that is that request.
7:09 pm
it also allows a minimizing of downtown. if it is out at substations they can be operated remotely which lethey are not. wwe are looking at increasing reliability and reducing maintenance costs. next request for the golf quarter signal upgrades. this is planned for many years. we funded the design phase in the past. we are not expecting a significant impact or real impact from the vanness bus rapid transit project going on concurrently with construction phase. the current alignment of the lane configuration and two lanes in each direction on vanness is not going to change during the construction change of the golf street project. the next request is for bicycle facility maintenance to
7:10 pm
restripe the green bike lanes and boxes and replace the safe hit poster in your city. you may request maintenance calling 311 or through the 311 app or website. the last request is for the $200,000 request from sfcta for recaltrans required document. a project initiation document to advance the next phase over work for the management study which you heard about. project managers are here as well. >> chair peskin: any questions for step on item 8. seeing none any public comment on item 8? seeing no public comment. public comment is closed. is there a motion to allocate
7:11 pm
said $3.65 million? made by commissioner -- i think all three of these are noncontroversial. commissioner tang seconded by commissioner farrell. a roll call please. (roll call). i team has been approved.
7:12 pm
>> chair peskin: into a temnumber 9. >> clerk: approve programming of $6.08 million in local partnership program funds to three san francisco public works street re-surfacing project and exchange of $4.1 million in lpp funds with equivalent prop k for the lpp fund exchange project with conditions. this is an action item. >> good morning again. in april of 2017, the governor of california signed senate bill one. this is a suite of programs that are funded through a gas tax and vehicle registration fee revenues to approximately $5 million per year -- sorry $5 billion per year.
7:13 pm
san francisco is expected to get just about $60 million in formula funds and this is for a host of projects on local streets and roads, highways and transits on the fix it first for the state highways and the local streets and roads portions. i will focus on the local partnership program which is one of the local and regional investments. i would like to point out a great website for folks if you are interested in looking at senate bill one. rebuilding caca.goff. there is an beractive -- interactive map that you can see these coming up through the package. the state local partnership program $200 million per year that is made available to
7:14 pm
jurisdictions half through a formula and half through a competitive program. it is to reward jurisdictions that have voter approval of taxes, tolls and fees or self imposed fees solely dedicated to transportation. in san francisco as administrator of the prop k sales tax and vehicle registration fee they are eligible for the program. the cycle one fundings that we are slated to eve over this current fiscal year. next year is cycle one and two in cycle year 20. they released the confirmed shares this week. the total we are expecting is $150,000 more than what we included in the materials. it was an estimate at the time every lease of these materials. the state throughout the
7:15 pm
establishment of the program has given guidance to jurisdictions and the state these cycle one funds should go on construction ready projects. this work to show the voters the been fits of sb1 ahead of a potential repeal effort which may be considered in november. looking at the prospects for shovel ready projects in san francisco, public works re-surfacing program. which is a good track record of bell delivering projects. they provide highly visible benefits to the public. it includes curb ramps and repair of curb and other aspects of the president-elec the proje. with a dollar for dollar match
7:16 pm
required you need to look at projects around $4 million in size. this street re-surfacing project we recommend to receive the local partnership programming are about that order of magnitude. there is also prop k available to fund the local match for these projects. >> this shows the projects we are recommending. they were selected by public works staff based on the pavement condition scores, all of the street segments are considered at risk in the pci in the mid 50s. that would be a newly paved street. under these guidelines required by the california transportation commission of contracts and other reporting requirements and delivering projects and the project costs are the order of
7:17 pm
magnitude. it is good timing with the available of the funds and when this projects are underway. you can see the projects and districts on your screen. the other aspect is fund exchange of $4.1 million in local partnership funds for street re-surfacing with an equivalent amount of prop k funds for the managed lanes review phase. prop k funds will advance the project to phases we anticipate. it will be extremely competitive for state and local funds. under the congested corridors program, it means the u.s. 101 caltrain corridor is highly congested. the project is part of the managed lanes prioritized by mtc to make it a great candidate for
7:18 pm
the bridge toll should that be approved by the voters this year. with that i can answer any questions. the next step is very briefly. the projects will be submitted to the california transportation commission next week. ctc will adopt the program at the end of january. then the funds would be available to the department of public works. we would return to this allocation for the local match and environmental review phase should this item be approved. >> chair peskin: thank you. commissioner safai. >> is the request for $6 million? am i clear on that to study the hov?
7:19 pm
$4 million? >> we are recommending programming $6 million in state funds to street re-surfacing projects with a fund exchange of $4 million for the managed lane project. >> it is a $4 million study? >> that would be the amount. >> can i ask director chang, i am trying to wrap my head around why we need 4 or $6 million to study this. that seems like a significant amount of money for this study. >> it sounds like a lot of money in the world of environmental review it is what we expect. there is a portion of this which will be funded for the four miles from 380 to the county line. it ends up being more than what we are seeking for our part in the county. the environment tell process a
7:20 pm
lot of analyzes that we need to do for caltrans. they do this across the state. they require the studies to be done. one potential bright spot is back in 2012 or 2013. san mateo was successful in psyching matching funds. they asked for the money from private employer this is the corridor. if we are successful for programming, not allocating, just setting aside. >> programming the money. have we agreed on the scope or is this an idea? >> to set them aside because the ctc requires us to tell them what we want to do with our local partnership planning funds. we need those on resurfacing and those can be delivered to the
7:21 pm
voters. the previously prompt funds were to environmental work. it is to the you genesee of the ctc -- urgency of the cbc we are bringing to you. we would like to ask private employers to match to help supplement. >> you are taking this from street re-surfacing funds? does that decrease ability for street re-surfacing? >> no, we are adding $4 million. it goes from 4 to $6 million total we would give to public works to do re-surfacing. >> where is the money coming from. we had $6 million of public money. then they would give the $4 million to us four managed us. that leafs them up $2 million.
7:22 pm
>> so they are taking it away from something else? >> they are to receive $4 million of prop k for re-surfacing. this keeps that hole and $6 million adds two more. it is a funds swap. they would release the $4 million to allow it for managed lanes. it is not officially eligible in the prop k program otherwise. >> maybe it should stay that way. since you are swapping money. leave it and not use the money in that manner. >> commissioner yee. >> it is a moment where i really do appreciate where this is going in terms every surfacing.
7:23 pm
i notice quite a few streets in district 7 finally. i am curious, when do the issues that we try to push is the undergrounding of the line and somehow in recent months or about a year ago there was a decision to maybe take a sabbatical from thinking about it, and i am trying to find ways where we could reactivate our thought process and get it going again because i feel like if we keep on assuming that why take the next steps with no money? then you are never going to the next steps beyond that. you need a vision so we could go after the money in the future.
7:24 pm
i have been sort of disappointed that it seems like we are going to move to take a step backward from that concept, maybe two steps backward from the concept at this point apuse basically some funding that is sitting there which is substantial. it is not quite enough to make a dent on the whole program, but i think is it $70 million? >> it is $70 million as part of the development agreement. >> the plan now seems to be, okay, since we don't have enough to do the tunneling, then this just wastes that $70 million and moves the tracks to the right side then we don't have 0 0 - $70 million that is community was supporting, which was the
7:25 pm
tunnel. >> i appreciate your reminding us of the $70 million in the developer commitments and that the public needs to move it forward to commit those. the underground project is moving along through the studies we did provide funding for. mta at some point a year ago decided to put it on hold pending larger priorititization conversations we need around the rail investment strategy. my understanding they were moving forward with the central subway to go to fisherman's wharf and the m undergrounding that is one of the highest priority projects, four car capacity an chronic the diagonal of the city. i assure you they are interesting in it. it is in capital investment. the work that we have been doing
7:26 pm
with mta has shifted to city wide transit planning and particularly rail planning. you saw earlier this year the transbay corridor. how does the rail come into the city in district one, for example. we are looking at rail extensions to the second transbay tube. the m line continues to be a high priority system for mta, downtown expansion and potentially a southerly correction to connect to third street light rail. these are set up through the scoping word. jeff hobson is leading that with the planning department and mpc and bart and caltrain. you can expect a scoping and early planning round information in the outreach hopefully in the
7:27 pm
string. >> i would appreciate any movement as quick as possible. when we are talking about other people that they mentioned the situation and we are looking at the apartments, 20,000 more people in the feature living in that area. the m is already at capacity. if 2 0 -- 280 is clogged now. >> thank you, sir. >> chair peskin: commissioner fewer and then commission near sheehy. >> piggybacking this does nothing to alleviate the traffic
7:28 pm
concerns running through district seven for one and two on the highway 1. that level of congestion is almost unbearable now. i just want to mention that although i understand that we are studying another other door. i wanted to shine attention on the fact highway 1 continues to be a nightmare. as the commissioner said we are going to experience a lot of new housing. i would like to see what we have in store for that plan, and it looks as though we are a city that is grow very rapidly through a lack of planning that we are hit where we are now and alsandbecause we are not lookint transportation while we are approving development and housing plans.
7:29 pm
district 7, 4, 1 and 2 will experience more congestion on highway 1. >> point taken. commissioner sheehy. final thoughts before the motion. >> i just want to understand. if that $4 million isn't allocated fo for the managed lae study, that has no impact on the re-surfacing, right? >> correct. the resurfacing money would be there the $4 million for re-surfacing. >> and the additional $2 million? >> that could be there as well, exactly. >> what would happen if we didn't spend the $4 million on study? what happens to the $4 million? >> through the chair the supervisors commissioner sheehy would be available to
7:30 pm
resurfacing projects. >> okay. thank you. >> chair peskin: so colleagues, i hear the discussion that we have been having. i think what staff has proposed and is before us has been discussed. i think the crux of the policy consideration is whether or not as expressed by some of the commissioners we want to start a long-term planning investment in the 101/280 managed corridors. some of you do and some do not for what little it is worth as your chair, i think it is a long term worthwhile investment that over time will be needed as you heard with over 100,000 people anticipated to be coming up the corridor we have to do more than caltrain extension.
7:31 pm
at some point we have to bite the hov managed lane bullet. that is my thought. why don't we see where the votes are. is there a motion to move item 9 forward? okay. if there is no motion we will not consider item number 9. is there any public comment on item number 9? seeing none, public comment is closed. i will ask one more time is there a motion to approve item 9, the fund swap of $6.08 million in local partnership program funds? >> made by commissioner cowen and seconded by commissioner tang. a roll call please on that item.
7:32 pm
(roll call). it dies on a tie 4-4 vote. i would like to schedule this at our december 12th meeting. i will ask staff to talk to all of you and we will vote on it again when we have a full complement. would that, can we have the next
7:33 pm
item, please which in some ways may inform the previous item. >> clerk: item 10. >> chair peskin: is there a motion now that commissioner kim is back and we had a tie vote. mr. taylor i need legal advice. in our other incarnation we would need a majority of the body in the board of supervisors, six. in this body we would only get to five is it a majority of those present and voting or majority of the body at the transportation authority commission? >> since this is a procedural matter a majority of those voting. >> if we go to the trouble every sending the vote. >> you still need six votes,
7:34 pm
yes. there is no reason to go through it in my short as chair we will reschedule for the 12th. commissioner cohen your name is on the roster. >> i was going to make a motion to rescind the vote. >> stephe receive if we get to e majority we won't have enough. >> my name was on the roster you acknowledged me. i want to be on the record that i make a motion to rescind. >> made by co-help and seconded with kim. without objection. the vote is rescinded. seconded by commissioner tang on that motion a roll call please.
7:35 pm
(roll call). >> this is on the motion to approve. >> that fails on a 5-4 vote because we did not get a majority of the body and i will as i indicated previously schedule this for december 12th. next item, please. >> clerk: item 10. approve the 2017 san francisco congestion management program.
7:36 pm
this is an action item. >> chair peskin: mr. sana the floor is yours. >> i am a transportation planner with the transportation authority. i am here to provide an update on the congestion management program, cmp for the year 2017. >> chair peskin: this is a housekeeping matter. can we have a motion to excuse the commissioners breed and fewer made by commissioner safai eand seconded by commissioner sheehy. we will take that without objection. >> as a management agency of san francisco we are required to monitor and report the performance matters related to congestion every two years.
7:37 pm
it including monitoring the lol the delay from auto speeds. we are unique. in addition we monitor the traffic performance metrics, transit speeds and transit speed ratios. we are aware this plan that san francisco has seen rapid growth in the past few years in both jobs and housing. however, the jobs growth has out paced population growth by a factor of three. all this can be expected to have a significant impact on vehicles during peak hours. not surprisingly, we found that automobile level of service has declined from the past cycle in 2015. we observed that average speeds
7:38 pm
have decreased across radius facility types and in the order of 4 to 8%. however, this is much better compared to the 15 to 20% drop in speeds that was observed in the previous cycle of monitoring cycle for the period of 2013 to 2015. looking at the long-term trends it appears like it has declined from 2009 and looking at the maps it appears like the most significant hit areas are downtown and south of market.
7:39 pm
transit speeds have remained steady at 7 to 8 miles per hour. auto to trap it is speed. -- transit is more competitive related to auto. the transit ability to maintain performance is due to the radius transit priority treatments the city is make anything the past few years. considering this for the transit first policy especially in the light of the rapid jobs and housing growth in this period. it includes updates in the initiative and improvements in the forecasting model. in the cycle for the first time we have moved the cmp to a database solution and created a web based tool for both
7:40 pm
exploding and visualizing this data. i would like to take this opportunity to quickly demonstrate the website which went live this morning. it shows a radius automobile service mapped on san francisco cmp road segments for the latest monitoring cycle of 2017. years later it can easily update this map for the past monitoring cycles. in addition, it can be switched between a.m. or p.m. peak. one could look at the specific segments by clicking on these links and this will update the chart on the right and i have
7:41 pm
clicked on the 280 segment. you can see the speeds have been declining over the past few years. other metrics including transit speed, transit liability and auto to transit speed ratios. this will increase accessibility to this data for both the planners and the general public. thank you. with that i will take any questions. >> thank you for taking my suggestion and including the url. it is is that correct? >> that's correct. >> thank you for that presentation and for that tool that is only the bearer of bad news. are there any questions for staff? seeing none. are there any members of the public who would like to comment
7:42 pm
on this dismal news? seeing none. public comment is closed. okay. thank you. next item, please. >> this is an action item. my apologies. we need to approve the 2017 congested management program. is there a motion to approve the program? made by commissioner yee, seconded by commissioner sheehy. roll call please. (roll call).
7:43 pm
item has been approved. >> chair peskin: i am sure commissioner safai ewill click on 280 and research it very carefully. next item please. >> clerk: item 11. approve the 2018 state and federal legislative program. this is an action item. >> chair peskin: it seems like we just finished last year's legislative program. >> we come to you monthly with proposals for recommendations on state legislature and the program. it is an opportunity to look back at what happened in the prior year and look forward to what the opportunities and direction we as an agency want to take to inform our motto month actions over the next year. this also provides us an
7:44 pm
opportunity or you an opportunity to guide us and us an opportunity to also give direction to mark watts in sacramento. 2017 was really the year about senate bill 1. that was a fantastic passage but we are still looking at significant challenges funding transportation. i think revenues will be a theme next year. we a that cap and trade will be one of the major measures discussed as the expenditure after 2020 is to be established in the next year. other themes we anticipate will be on the forefront next year is continued talk about the regulation of new technologies, we saw many bills last year and we want to make sure to stay on top of those and look to advance the san francisco interest. also, on the near material her
7:45 pm
eye don is the opportunity to -- roar eye don. -- the speed enforcement pilot the city has a priority for next year. also seems the pricing and project delivery improvements that are a regular item. sponsorship of bills, things that we in particular might look to lead the effort, the first is related to the managemented lanes effort. it would be as they have mentioned there is an opportunity that santa clara and san mateo are moving forward. they have authorization. we would like to keep the door open to join them and maintain the local involvement in that effort extending to san francisco. a second bill would be to authorize tolling on the crooked
7:46 pm
part of lombard building on a study from earlier this year. with the transportation management on treasure island to pursue a pilot project for automated vehicles. and the task force is developing recommendations soon to be released and we anticipate there may be necessarity of going forward and getting authorization for more revenue measures next year. i am happy to answer questions. >> any questions from commissioners? any members of the public to testify on this item? seeing none public comments is closed. is there a motion to approve the 2018 state and federal legislative program? seconded by commissioner sheehy and we have the same house, same

7:54 pm
agency over the past year. i want to start by saying the year was marked by a lot of it focused on infrastructure, policy and revenues and projects that were under development that were being prepared for a big funding opportunities that was the tremendous focus with the measure three setting up next phase investments in extension of caltrain and host of other big projects. we look forward to setting up the next set of rail investments for the city. i have appreciated the guidance today. long-term planning was a major highlight. we had adoption of the county wide plan in update in 20 is as well as mobility and technology services this. is a pie on nearing circumstance shoe -- pie on nearing issue. it is debated and advanced for

7:56 pm
region and allow the local match and state fund match to bear more quickly. we opened vista point which is another highlight following the opening of the east side ramps last year on the island and were able to secure $30 million. thank you for the leadership. on treasure island we advanced tolling with your help and commissioner kim of the agency we appreciate your leadership locally and at mtc allowing us to demonstrate the concepts on treasure island. we were able to deliver the second street opening. a lot of great projects are on the way and we were able to deliver a host of planning studies starting with the environmental document at the begin of the year. completed the bicycle study in district nine and the crooked
