student. i did get my undergrad in business, so, i want to combine those. that's why after talking to wyatt, i really wanted to work in the office of small business just because it really interested me and i enjoy my study. >> she said, i hope to create more definitions for the additional terms that the taxing treasurer's office added to their list ~ just to kind of help get a definition of maybe why they were added and what type of business [speaker not understood] that you would check that box instead of another box. and then i also helped compile the list, preliminary list of potential business he for the legacy rebate program. i basically just went on to the data s.f. and put in specific terms looking 30 years ago or older and then also certain class codes [speaker not
understood] felt would be best that fall under the definitions of it and then just compile it had into an excel spreadsheet. you only have one class code. i d a couple more and i hope to continue to work with that project because i really think it's a great project and would like to provide any help that i can. >> thank you. >> so, thank you, stephanie, and monique. so, you're welcome to stay or you're welcome to go back downstairs if you like. all right. also, so, to move on, so, the a-d-a subsidized assessment program we are now going to expand it city-wide. and it will be available as long as there are funds annually because of the dollar registration that's added to the annual business registration. we have approximately $50,000 to work with. so, that could add 40, around
40 kass p, subsidized casp inspections. it was opened up to targeted certain neighborhood programs. now with this fee we're going to be targeting -- opening it up city-wide. small business saturdays is coming up november -- i'm very embarrassed, but the last saturday of the month. we are very pleased that american express has decided to, again, include san francisco in expanding its sort of activities. >> the 29th. >> the 29th. yes, thank you. so, they are planning a main street make over which is just helping with kind of decorations and with hayes valley, and then small business saturday night in the upper fillmore, helping them put together some promotional thing that they can do for late night
shopping for that -- for that neighborhood. so, and then, of course, we're doing the banners again this year along with the invest in neighborhoods program. formula retail, so, today in land use and economic committee starting at 1:30, the two formula retail item are being heard. and, so, hopefully find out after this meeting is over in terms of what was the final outcome. the point of sale registration, so, monique is continuing to work to help sort of develop some additional data and information for both our office, supervisor farrell's office and supervisor wiener's office, but our next steps are also to be meeting with dph. they are going to put together an assessment of the businesses he that they've gone into. they've done the testing ~. and they even have -- their
registers, their pos system is office to see if we can see any sort of -- from that data, if we can make any sort of determination, you know, in terms of size of business, industry business, number of pos system in the business, that type of thing. so, i don't anticipate that this is going to be a fast-moving legislative change because i do think that we want to be measured about it, but we will be -- we're continuing to work on it. so, i'll just keep you apprised as each stage, any sort of new developments take place along the way. next, for your next meeting on november 10th, you will be hearing the 14 b local business enterprise program legislation. initially it was scheduled at the october 6 meeting, but was asked to be continued.
and, so, supervisor chiu's office and the city administrator's office has commits today november 10th. and you will also be hearing both pieces of legislation. supervisor mar's and supervisor chiu is dealing with formula retail employees. so, i just wanted to make sure you're aware of that. last, last week supervisor breed had at the land use and economic committee establishing divisadero neighborhood commercial corridor and the fillmore street commercial corridor. the commission heard those back in 2012, i think, or late '12, early 2013. the one change that was made to those two pieces he of legislation, initially they had a ban for formula retail, but the ban was removed from the
legislation when it was heard again and they'll just follow the planning commission's formula retail criteria. so, those two item passed out of land use and will be before the full board tomorrow for its first reading. i want to let you know he that our new website is live ~. so, we have developed it so that once the portal is live, all the subtantive material that was part of the 10 steps to getting your business open, [speaker not understood] financial business will be easily able to be extracted without having to be able to be extracted because all that information is now housed in the portal. ~ substantive so, there is a seamless transition once the portal goes live, which we're -- i'm hoping will be in the next couple weeks. it's pretty well ready to go. and then i've provided you with some updates on the staffing and they hope that we are

have made a series of amendments to the resolution that capture the spirit of the policy but would allow continued conversation with the task force and other stakeholders about how we do metering. i believe strongly that the city needs to start developing toes to help create affordable housing. in our housing element alone, we talk about building a 60% affordable, but we are currently not doing that. it is important to start the discussion about creating tools of measuring our affordable housing and creating tools to enforce that. i grew up in new york city, one to my parents who had immigrated here to the u.s. actually, i started really becoming active in working with the community when i was in high school. came outo california for college, went to stanford. i was always politically involved. when i was a college student, i worked on the initiative to get
rid of affirmative action in our public government system. currently, we have 3 legislative items that are pending. the first is going to be coming to a final vote on tuesday, our mid-market uptown tenderloin task exemption legislation. t is basically an incentive to encourage businesses to come to mid-market. in particular, where we have the highest commercial vacancy. and then when i graduated, moved out to san francisco about 12 years ago. i always loved sanford cisco in college, and i just wanted to try it out. i started working in economic development policy. i was a community organizer for six years. i worked with young people, parents, and families around issues that concern our neighborhoods, whether it was improving muni lines, affordable
housing, public schools, or just planning issues in neighborhoods. we just had a hearing last week, and we are trying to do some work around bedbug enforcement, which is a major issue in the tenderloin and of hill and 63. a hearing will actually be on thursday, april 7, 10:30. we're doing our first hearing on pedestrian safety. i think public safety is a huge concern. it ranges from both low-level crimes to pedestrian safety, and so that is a really important issue to me. we are probably more than double what every other district has. and that are preventable. and we can do better. district 6 is one -- home to one of the most diverse constituencies. we have the poorest residents in san francisco. we have lgbt. we have immigrants, people of color, youth, and a high proportion of seniors in the city as well.
we heard that people want to see more jobs, want to see access to more jobs for our residents. we want to see more preventive instead of just reactive. we want to see after-school programs versus the police picking them up because they are out on the street, which i think our chief agrees with. i actually ran for the board of education in san francisco and got to serve a term on our school board. what really surprised me was how much i enjoyed it. i loved it. i love meeting with families, meeting with youth, meeting with teachers, visiting schools, and getting a deeper understanding of what it means to make our system work better. the one thing i really enjoyed was i got to run within a district instead of citywide, was that i really got to know voters and residents. i actually enjoy campaigning more because i had time to knock on doors and the voters individually.
i'd love it. i actually really enjoyed being out on the field. so i spent a lot of time doing it because i got to really get a deeper understanding of what people care about and what people's concerns are and also what people loved about the district and the city. i was talking with the mayor yesterday. he was very interested in seeing how the good work with our office -- how he could work with our office. i wod love to see how we could support small businesses because they are the heart at san francisco. they provide 60% 07% of the jobs in sanford cisco, and they provide it locally, and they are not going to offshore their jobs any time. i am not an opponent of cleaning up the tenderloin. i love the tenderloin. i love what is right now. i recognize we have a diversity of books that live there and people do not want to see open drug dealing. i do not have a problem with people lit think -- people out on the street socializing. i think that is good.
that to me is more -- you know, it is part of the character of the neighborhood. i get to represent one of the most exciting and dynamic districts in the city. it is where change is happening, so i think it is exciting in terms of how we can model what it means to be a smart growth neighborhood, how we can use transit and housing effectively to serve our city and also to do a lot of the new green policies that we have developed over the last 10 years.
