5:20 am
pink. his mother had this message. >> we have to rally around our children and show them that life is much more than just hitting -- much more than a bullet hitting a body. if we start loving on our children and helping them to understand that the air we breathe is a gift and when you take it away, you are losing the talent and so many opportunities that could exist for people. liz: $25,000 i i i offered for information leading to an arrest in the death. past and present. poet laureates from san francisco and beyond gathered to celebrate the life and legacy of -- who passed away last month after running the memorial church with her husband for several decades. >> janice was a giant amongst us, and not just because of the high heels she wore.

[sfx: bear roar] that describes only john cox.
5:24 am
liz: welcome back. with the pandemic, fewer people are taking public transit and more people are driving. at the same time, the city of san jose is proposing a policy change that would reduce potential parking spots. dustin dorsey found it as part of the city goal to move on from a car dependent society. dustin: this shopping center is very popular among south bay residents. places to eat, shop and live. the problem is on most days, there are no places to park. >> it makes it difficult to plan out your day because you have to allot for parking away from the building. >> yet to get here at certain times and when you are here, your friend might call you and you can't go because you can't lose your parking spot. dustin: he says his complex and to pay for a spot on property.ay would require fewer -- fewer
5:25 am
parking spots in housing develop it's in the future. >> but we are trying to do is enable an urban environment that is more focused on people and buildings instead of having a lot of parking du parking also c c c of money, currently costing developers upwards of $50,000 per parking space, money that eventually comes back on the consumer. the city hopes this plan will create a less car dependent society. >> i don't know how that is going to work. it is already a problem. it is just making it worse. >> this won't make it so that somehow parking disappears. we are looking at rightsizing the parking, making sure that the developing community along with the city has a robust conversation about what is really needed and reducing that number to the amount needed, not less and not more. dustin: the change also calls
5:26 am
for developments to have plans in place to support other forms of transportation as well. liz: a rally is set for today to keep san francisco's great highway car free. the mayor and other officials announced last week that it will partially reopen to vehicles during the week. it was limited to pedestrians and bicyclists during the pandemic and now the city wants to allow cars monday through friday, banning them only on weekends. valley organizers say the great bridge was -- the bayview neighborhood is making a name for itself with a big and bold statement. we were there for the official unveiling of the eight foot tall letters and park that greet people at third street near mead avenue. the letters spelling out bayview were installed at the end of april and are supposed to be visible from highway 101. crews wrapped up the project with landscaping and covering the letters and colorful tiles

5:30 am
good morning everybody. you're watching abc 7 news wherever you stream. let's start this half hour with a look at the weather with lisa arjun. lisa: starting out with low clouds and fog along the shoreline. there is a look at the bay bridge and moderate air quality will continue as that ridge of high pressure sits overhead, bringing a little haze this afternoon. it is 62 in union city, a littll haze in san jose. a little cooler in santa rosa. we will get more sunshine and as we do throughout the afternoon, temperatures are going to heat up once again for plenty of 90's from livermore and antioch today. 81 down towards fremont.still 's
5:31 am
with that steady onshore flow, we will talk about the fog coming back into play tonight. the cooldown that is slated for the week ahead. liz: despite the pandemic, san francisco is suspected to see more than 15 million tourists this year. those tourists could pump $3.5 billion into local businesses. one of the keys to building a better bay area is making sure those tourists feel safe and that they want to come back. that is why san francisco is putting more officers on the streets in popular parts of the city. the question is, will that be enough? that is what phil wanted to see when he caught up with police, to see if their presence is making a difference. >> san francisco sages and outdoor style show in union square. phil: there was a time when san francisco's union square was the destination for the latest fashions. in the 1950's, white gloved crowds of women gathered to see what was hot.
5:32 am
today, the new trend everyone is talking about our thefts -- are thefts. organized groups swarmed into the nema's dachshund in -- into the neiman marcus store, stealing tens of thousands in designer handbags. despite these hope i'll incidents, san francisco police and crime data shows declining incidence of property crime in the city so far. how shocked were you when you saw that video of people running out with purses? >> honestly for me, if it was 10 years ago it would have been shocking but today it is not just here. you are seeing it on the news everywhere. it is disappointing. phil: most of the stores in this area have increased their security. some even hire off-duty police officers to stand guard. many luxury retailers are now requiring appointments or just sticking to the old pandemic
5:33 am
capacity limits, in order to restrict a number of people inside stores. >> the last guy i talked to said he liked the -- phil: these sergeants are walking the streets of union square today as part of san francisco's police department's tourism deployment plan. the goal is increased presence in high-traffic tourism areas to let people know that san francisco is safe. >> are you going to ride the cable car? have a good day. phil: it isn't just tourists who are seeing more police. businesses are seeing more police as well. >> we are doing good today. nothing crazy so far. hopefully it stays that way. phil: the pandemic has hit union square hard. block after block of closed stores and shops and there are the homeless on the sidewalks. none of it paints the
5:34 am
neighborhood is a welcoming place. you can't do anything with him right? >> he wasn't doing anything and the store was not complaining. with those guys, mainly you just get to know them, build up some rapport so that when you need something from them, you stay respectful and they just go along with it. phil: in the meantime, you just step over them and say, that's san francisco? >> there are resources but how do you convince them of that? we know they need help. they have to see it too. it goes both ways. nothing breaks our hearts more than not being able to help. we don't want to see them sitting there. phil: the smp -- the sf pd captain is in charge of the station which includes many of the city's top tourist attractions like union square, chinatown and fisherman's wharf.
5:35 am
this is union square, the heart of san francisco. nothing but landmarks around here. how did it wind up being a crime center? >> retail crimes for sure. this is the center of commerce. the union square you are referring to. during the pandemic, it was a different time, but property crime has gone up. but slowly, they have been decreasing as well. our goal is before it happens. phil: how much time do you think we will be able to keep cops at this level in this part of the city? we have seen them come and go. >> i am very helpful -- hopeful. we talk specifically about union square. we have officers who are dedicated. tourism deployment definitely helps, but we also have reserve
5:36 am
officers that come out. phil: your area is not just union square. you have fisherman's wharf, you have some of the hottest tourist spots. you have retail theft here, car break-ins at fisherman's wharf. you have your hands full. >> we certainly do. eight of the 10 most iconic places to visit our in our district. we are battling a rise in auto burglaries. again, looking back back prior weeks, we have seen some very positive decreases. phil: attractions is people want to feel safe. >> that's right. phil: do more cops on the street make the streets safer in your opinion? >> of course it does. crime is one thing.
5:37 am
perception is another thing. when i say perception, that means the fear of crime. even if crime is down and the perception is high, then the perception is there is a lot of crime. we don't just look at crime itself but we look at the fear of crime. we need to address that issue as well. phil: how much time do you think it will take for us to get back to what was the old normal as far as safety? >> we are heading towards that right now. it is looking good and positive. with the advent of social media, there is a lot of perception. if you look at the hard data, the chief announced a couple a rate people thi,s not but social media is rising, so the perception is there. it is a good thing, awareness. people know and they see what is
5:38 am
going on, more than they used to. phil: very important to the city's hotel industry. before the pandemic, occupancy rates were roughly 80% in hotels. today, just at about 30%. the hotel council president says the increased police patrols will help the city recover from the pandemic drop. >> we've been asking for and we have been seeing more beat and patrol officers out on the street. phil: does that help public safety or does that help more with image and public relations? >> absolutely public safety for our employees and visitors as well. when they can visually see the officers on the street, it provides a sense of security and it also does provide security. phil: but does it do much for the homeless situation or panhandling because that is not against the law? >> correct, but anything else that is done that is against the law, having the visual representation of police officers on the street is incredibly important. phil: how are the retailers
5:39 am
around here doing? >> as we start to get more businesses in the hotels, retailers will see more people coming in as well. for them, it is important to have thee streetecset hssourrst st in andheg opping, that they are safe when they are on the street. liz: that was phil matier reporting. the only way the city is able to fund these increased patrols is with overtime. that is because the san francisco police department is short about 400 officers and the problem is getting worse as officers retire or leave for different departments. coming up, this week, abc 7's effort to build a better bay area will shift efforts back to us -- shift focus back to schools. will bring you a full week of education stories on-air and online at still ahead, a big comeback for 49ers fans.
