File #: 150236    Version: 1 Name: Formal Policy Discussions - March 10, 2015
Type: Hearing Status: Filed
Introduced: 3/3/2015 In control: Board of Supervisors
On agenda: 3/10/2015 Final action: 3/10/2015
Enactment date: Enactment #:
Title: Pursuant to Charter, Sections 2.103 and 3.100(7), and Administrative Code, Section 2.11, the Mayor shall answer the following eligible question submitted from the Supervisor representing District 10. The Mayor may address the Board initially for up to five minutes. Discussion shall not exceed five minutes per Supervisor. 1. Mr. Mayor - We have both repeatedly discussed our mutual desires to support and increase the number of community serving businesses along the Third Street merchant corridor. We have also worked extensively together with your Office of Economic and Workforce Development to support existing businesses, attract new businesses, and to fund physical and tenant improvements all in an effort to increase foot traffic and better serve the surrounding community. However, in recent months several non-profit organizations and City agencies including the H?uman Services Agency (HSA)? have been looking for office space on the merchant corridor. While these organizations provide key services to District 10 residents they are competing for the same spaces that are needed for new businesses. We have identified office space surrounding the merchant corridor where these services can expand and continue to serve District 10 residents. We have also proposed ways that these non-profits and City agencies might partner together to leverage their collective resources to lease or buy new space. Given that we have room for both new businesses and expanding City departments in the Bayview do you support efforts to prioritize Third Street storefronts for commercial businesses? What is your position on where various City agencies should locate in the Bayview including HSA? (Supervisor Cohen, District 10)
