Minutes Updated September 27, 2019

1. Welcome

Neighbors Robert Muehlbauer; Moneka Urbanske; Lynn Yuan; Scott Kauffman; Patricia Ris; Danielle Casey Callaghan

2. Approval of August Minutes

·       Moneka’s update on Neighborfest include that it’s a bureocratic project that has too many demands (e.g., certain days the festivity can be held, etc.) and not worth dealing with. We should hold our own neighborhood gathering for Parcel 4, as described below.

3. Monthly updates:
SF Parks Alliance – Marissa has left SFPA for a position with Urban Sprouts. Our SF Parks Alliance contacts moving forward will be Claude Imbault and Amanda Montez

Claude Imbault, Associate Director of Partner Experience
claude@sfparksalliance.org – (415) 606-5856 (cell)

Amanda Montez, Director of Programs
amanda@sfparksalliance.org – (202) 329 – 2566 (cell)

Follow up:

·       Danielle will send a note of thanks to Marissa on behalf of RLN– Marissa was a great asset to the team, especially pushing though the LMNOP contract.

·       Should Claude and Amanda be added to the Google group list? If so, Warren, please add them to the list.


Progress at Parcel 4

Stairs – planking has been installed, stained, and sealed.

Railings – Shop drawings were created by the fabricator and approved by DPW. On 9/5, Tyler communicated that approval to the company that will fabricate the railings and will confirm the schedule for installation. Six weeks is the expected timeline. Sorting who could approve drawings took a bit of work.

Thanks to Nahal for coordinating review of shop drawings by DPW. This process highlighted the importance of having good relationships with our partners.

Tyler has said that as soon as the railings are installed, the lane can be reopened.

Fence – LMNOP staff placed what was thought to be the fence line but upon further review of our survey and Richard’s, the north-south running line was moved to extend the house-side of the sidewalk instead of the road-side of the sidewalk. The folks at 3 Caine Ave shared their survey confirming this line placement. Mary Beth is ready to approve the new location of the fence and has requested that Richard meet to review the line. Richard would like a shadowbox style erected. The other options are flat top with a cap or dog eared. One benefit of shadowbox is that both sides look the same so no one is getting the rail side.

Does someone have our full-size survey from 2014 to share with Mary Beth?

Follow up:

·       Patricia and Robert will look for their copies of the surveys.

·       What is the cost of the shadowbox fence and is this accounted for in the LMNOP bid?

Water – the water supply line that runs up the parcel is old and corroded. In the initial work on site, it was cracked creating a leak that continued about 3 days. LMNOP immediately contacted the Water Department who sent out the sewer people. Mary Beth’s report to 311 was also directed to Sewer but was quickly rerouted to Water. The Water Department put in a temporary fix and are working on a long-term solution.

The Water Department personnel who put in the temporary fix told Tyler that the pipe has been a known issue. That pipe supplies Gen’s house and doesn’t feed Caine Ave. as we have been told.

This pipe could be the better location for our meter. Mary Beth has contacted Jeff Fong, at New Installations Unit of the Water Department (who was very helpful with the meter application) for input on the best siting of the meter. Tyler sees three options: near the break in the pipe (about midway up the stairs close to Gen’s house), at the bottom of the stairs off the now-temporary pipe, or on Caine Ave. The Caine Ave. site seems the most difficult and possibly costly as we haven’t located the pipe to tie into and would involve cutting the sidewalk. The other locations include a known pipe location and no concrete cutting. The spot midway up the stairs would also allow for the backflow prevention device to be somewhat concealed.

Update: Jeff Fong has agreed to the new location (Northside of Ridge Lane halfway between Caine and San Miguel) – once the installation is scheduled, the foreman can approve the location. Tyler can now move forward with the Backflow Prevention Device Installation.

Follow up:

·       Mary Beth met with Tyler onsite on Sept 11. She will update Nahal and Eric about the new location, which is at nearly the same elevation as the sidewalk.

Landscaping – As can be seen, really big weeds were removed when LMNOP returned. The landscaper was been on site to start planning. They will first soak the site with water repeatedly to force germination of the existing weed seeds. Once sprouted, those weeds will be removed. The landscaper has used this method of weed removal successfully (avoiding the use of chemical) on other projects. Later this fall, they will return to complete the plantings. Landscaping work will not delay opening of the lane.

Update: there was a discussion about over-weeding of native plants along the lane and a desire to have a neighborhood gathering where people can be educated about the native landscapes that attracts (and is vital to) many butterflies. Perhaps this can be part of the impending Parcel 4 celebration (see below).

Bollards and benches are also part of LMNOP’s scope of work. They will need one of the bollards from Lynn soon to plan installation. Tyler and Lynn have been in touch.

Update: Lynn has given a bollard to Tyler. Can someone please clarify that this is for Parcel 4 and NOT for Parcel 1?

Parcel 4 Celebration

In anticipation of Parcel 4 being re-opened upon installation of the railings, we would like to plan a day of celebration and neighborhood clean up on Saturday, November 9th from 10a-12p. Details will be planned at the October meeting – once confirmed, SF leaders (Safai, etc.) should be notified.

Parcel 1 Bollards

As we learned in August, the top sections of three lights were stolen from Parcel 1. Scott purchased one replacement at a cost of $500 from a distributor in Victoria – thank you, Nahal, for your help in negotiating this discount!

Follow up:

·       Moneka has been wanting a comprehensive list of our costs and available money, so she will contact SF Parks Alliance – that information will help us learn if we can purchase two more replacements ($1000 total)

Parcel 3 Construction

Jerry Cullinane joined the meeting and explained that he is at an impasse with the city for the property a the top of Caine/against Ridge Lane. Jerry has proposed three buildings on the property: the two front units face Caine, are approx. 7’ lower than Charles’ house, and are each three bedrooms with one parking spot. The third building faces Ridge Lane, is approximately the same height as Charles’ house, is three stories and three bedrooms. SF planners are suggesting he scrap this third building, make the front two units longer and add an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) to each of them. Jerry explained to them that his design has support from a neighborhood group (RLN) advocating for the third building, in order to increase traffic on Ridge Lane. The planners suggested that if RLN writes a letter noting this support, it would go a long way in Jerry’s efforts to build the three units.

Discussion ensued about the difference between two units, each with an ADU vs. three units, and there was a consensus of support for Jerry’s three-building design with one caveat: that Jerry lower the height of the third building to two stories. Jerry was amenable.

Follow up:

·       Jerry will ask the architect to redesign the third building to two stories (and probably two bedrooms). He will share the plans with Robert and will provide a digital version of the updated design.

·       Robert will draft a letter of support and will circulate it to the RLN group for approval and signatures.

Community Challenge Grant

Nahal, thank you for bringing the grant to our attention. Applications open Sept 11 and are due Oct 16.

Update: There was consensus at the meeting to NOT apply for this cycle of the grant and instead to wait until 2020. Reasons for this decision include: a feeling that the city will not grant more money considering that we’ve had a lack of progress thus far; a reminder that the grant is term-based and we are not even sure what parcel the money would be used for, let alone ready to enter into contract and spend the money; a lack of availability by group members to devote themselves to writing the grant at this time. If we wait until 2020, we should be able to show that Parcel 4 has been completed and we can use the enthusiasm from that progress to bolster a better application.

Follow up:

·       Danielle will download the 2019 application and guidelines to provide some guidance in advance of next year’s application—these will be saved to the RLN Google Drive.

Other issues

·       Moneka suggests that we do not go through the city for clean-up days, but instead organize clean up days ourselves and call 311 afterwards to pick up the debris. It would be great if we could organize group clean-ups approximately three times a year in April, July and October. These can be casual gatherings with bagels and coffee. Also, maybe group members can adopt a section of the lane to clear of trash every so often.

·       There is an OMI Health and Wellness Fair at Minnie and Lovie Ward Rec Center on 9/21 at 11a. Moneka has more information if you’d like it.

·       There is a Planning Commission Meeting for the Balboa Reservoir Project being held on 9/12. The project is in the Environmental Impact Report stage, which is a big step towards approval. Construction will not begin until 2022 or 2023.

·       Did anyone go to the second planning meeting for the Balboa Park Station Parking Lot plan? If so, can you please share any notes or observations? Thank you again, Warren, for your notes on the first meeting.

·       As a reminder, the RLN Shared Folder exists on Google Drive as a place to store information about the project. Much information is stored there already, but it would be good to think about what knowledge you have that should be stored in the folder to be shared with the group.

Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8uSx4YiOwdafjZuVHA4U2YwemJmVlpQUE1wak93dHpVWEdSdFVDOGpTUEZINVlKdEMzNm8

·       Eric M. has decided to step away from RLN. The website is tied to a personal account and has been archived. It will go offline on 9/15. He has provided Warren with a file of the site. We need to determine how to replace the website.

Eric’s decision also puts a spotlight on our need to take care of ourselves and each other through this very long and often stressful process – and serves as a reminder that everyone is making contributions to this project in their own way. Also, please make the group aware of personal financial undertakings for the project as the group may be unaware of your contributions.

Follow up:

·         Who manages the ridgelaneneighbors@gmail.com email address? If it’s Eric, Warren, can you please check in with him about having this account managed by a current member of RLN?

·         Danielle will look into starting a new website. Patricia suggested using Wix instead of WordPress and is looking into some details about Wix. It’s possible that the file Eric provided to Warren will be easily transferred to Wordpress, so that may be easiest – but thank you in advance, Patricia, for researching.

·         The group would like to see logos of partners on the new website. Patricia will gather the logos for this purpose, and Robert will print a sheet that can be added to the kiosks. Partners discussed include: SF Parks Alliance, DPW, PUC, CCG, OMICC, Mayor’s Office (and perhaps more that Patricia noted).

Parcel 3 Development Update
Robert reiterated that he was informed that a proposal was formally submitted to the Planning Dept. 3 months ago.  The developer was supposed to meet with the Planning Dept. on July 17, but no communication has been forthcoming regarding that meeting or any other news.
Robert will contact the developer to ask about what happened at that meeting, and also to get confirmation on what he plans to do with the houses, as there has been some confusion about what was heard at our only public meeting – we believe he plans to rent them, but there is a question about whether they will be low income (Section 8, for example) rentals, perhaps to offset a market rate building project in another part of the City.  Clarification on this would be most appreciated.
Parcel 4 Update
From Marisa’s email: more requirements needed to be met which held things up again.  The new projected start date is August 19?
It was felt that perhaps we need to establish a personal connection with LMNOP and let them know how important it is that they get going on this project.  Warren will make the initial call, then let us know what transpires and whether more of us should make calls to them.
It was also suggested that perhaps we should start lobbying politicians – eg Mayor Breed, and DPW department head.  Perhaps Sandra Zuniga could give us some ideas about how best to proceed – who would like to follow through on either of these avenues? 
Parcel 1 Update
Scott ordered a replacement light for the one taken off one of our bollards, and it should be on its way.  NOTE:  since our meeting, unfortunately 3 more lights have been removed – we need to come up with a plan on how to deal with this.
Neighborhood Block Party
Moneka has learned more about the process being offered by NEN.  There are several dates available in September, October and November.  We can google Neighborfest SF to read more about it and see which available

dates seem good for us to have an event on Parcel 1.  Having it there means we wouldn’t have to go through the process of having a street shut down, nor have to depend on Parcel 4 being finished – plus it’s easier to have it on a level stretch of Lane.  Moneka sees the purpose to create more community connection in the neighborhood, including who might need help in an emergency, as well as raising awareness of what we are doing to improve Ridge Lane.
Moneka has offered to host.   Please take a look at the website (empowers.org/neighborfest) and offer opinions, suggestions.
Next Meeting:  September 3 at 7:00pm at Ingleside Library, unless otherwise notified.
Respectfully submitted,
Barbara VanderBorght

In Attendance:  Neighbors: Scott Kauffman; Moneka Urbanske; Russell Deweese: Lynn Yuan; Warren Longmire; Barbara VanderBorght

SFPA: Marissa Alexander;  Designers: Nahal Sohbati and Eric Arneson
Parcel 4 Update
We finally have official approval from the City, and the contract was signed on July 8.
Start date from LMNOP should be July 29.  Need confirmation from LMNOP – Marissa will let us know.
They will be doing the infrastructure, including the the irrigation system (and incorporating the installation of the water meter by the PUC).
Landscaping will come approximately 3 months later – hopefully staring sometime in October.
It was noted that during this hiatus from work on the project, the concrete stairs have been graffitied and the wooden steps have been modified for people to use the Lane behind the fence, somewhat unsafely.
Should we put up a sign indicating that work will begin soon – perhaps including a date, if we have complete confirmation of the start date?  It was thought that LMNOP should put up this Coming Soon type sign.  Marissa will talk to them about it.  They will also have to deal with the graffiti and making the site more secure.
Once the infrastructure work begins, it should be completed in about 6 weeks – so mid September?  Time for a party!?!
Parcel 3 Development
Moneka will ask Robert to send out an email regarding any news about the development plans.
It was noted that someone cut down all the growth on the lot -but left the cut dry grass/plants strewn around – making it less safe than before, both from a fire and walking on the path standpoint.  This is till the case.  It appears that they are moving ahead, as various people have been by to do various things connected to the building project…where do things stand?
Parcel 1 Maintenance needs
One of the slats on a bench is broken – we should be able to replace that.
One of the bollard lights’ top cap is missing.  Nahal said we can get that from our supplier.  Scot offered to pay for the replacement, since apparently all our non-City fund balance went to paying off LMNOP to cover a shortage (?).
The timing device on our irrigation system may need new batteries.
I’m unsure who is taking care of these issues – ?
NEN Neighbor Fest
Moneka reported that NEN is offering to help neighborhoods navigate through City requirements to put on community events/Block Parties.
We would need to know what the time frame in which this would have to happen….thinking it would be good to have a party when Parcel 4 is ready to open (sometime in September?).  A brief discussion on what we could do to make it fun for families, what would our theme be – maybe have activities relating to the habitat for the  Pipevine Swallowtail we are developing on the Lane.
Moneka will look into this further and get back to us.
Next Meeting
Tuesday, August 6 at 7:00pm at the Ingleside Branch (unless otherwise notified).
Respectfully Submitted,
Barbara VanderBorght

SFPA: Marissa Alexander
Update on Development of 6 Caine Lot
Robert M. reported that the contractor submitted their 3 house plans to the Planning Dept. about one month ago. It could be another 60 days before notices for input will be sent to neighbors within a 300 foot radius. As far as Robert knows, the only change made to the plans we discussed with them, was to lower the height of the houses fronting Caine.  It’s not known if they made changes to make the two driveways into one to preserve some street parking on Caine, as they had proposed.
When neighbors in close enough proximity get the hearing notice, they should let everyone know, and we should inform residents not in RLN so that we can have a stronger voice in seeing that our concerns are considered, and raise awareness of RLN.
Update Parcel 4
Marissa reported that the process, which gets ever more convoluted, is still moving along.  The latest hitch involved having to use an AIA contract, rather than the one SFPA usually uses.  This required the SFPA lawyers to go over it before it could be sent to the respective parties, (MOHCD and LMNOP), which is where it sits now.  Once they agree with the contract language, it has to go through more steps with the City, and LMNOP will have to get bonded for this job (which we will have to pay for).  Once all this is completed, the work can begin again, and should not take all that long (a month or so?).
It was suggested we put up a sign on the fence at Parcel 4 apologizing for the delay and indicating that there was a snag in funding, which is currently being worked out and that work should resume sometime soon.  It should be signed Ridge Lane Neighbors (RLN.org), so that it is clear no one person is responsible for this and so people can look at our website for more info.  Wording suggestions can be sent to the group email.  Patricia will contact Nahal to get it formatted with our logo and see about getting signs made and laminated.  Installation should be in a spot where it cannot easily be removed, if possible.
Water Meter
We do have the $10,000 grant from the PUC, and $1300 in rebates, but it is unclear how we are meant to proceed and who is supposed to do what in regards to the installation of the meter and back flow restrictor and the connections to water and irrigation lines. And how we can use the rebate. Do we need to hire a plumber?  What are PUC and LMNOP responsible for?  The uncertainties were handled by Catmex on Parcel 1, but LMNOP might not be in a position to do that here. To get more clarification, Mary Beth will talk to the folks at PUC this week and Marissa will send her the contact info of a neighborhood group who recently had this done.
Other

We would like to meet Julia’s replacement at SF Public Works.  Warren or Mary Beth will contact him and invite him to our next meeting.

Marissa has been talking to Sup. Safai about ensuring that the developer of the 6 Caine lot come through with their promises to develop Parcel 3 in a way we want.  We should get something in writing once it looks like they are moving ahead with their development.
We might be able to apply for additional MOHCD funding next (this?) year.  Now that we have gone through all their rigamarole, it should be somewhat easier to get to spend any grant money, although we would have to go through a bid process, and any contractor would have to meet all they requirements.
We should also be able to apply in the round CCG round, coming out in September.  There will be a higher max grant amount.  Unclear what their emphasis will be.
Water usage on Parcel 1.  Patricia reports that she was getting notices that our water usage was going over what we should be using, although this has stopped.  Also, there is a problem with the app that controls the irrigation flow system, and with the equipment.  Urban Farmer has been contacted, but they weren’t very helpful.  It was determined that we do want the system to be functional.  It was brought up that the plants were chosen for their drought resistance and thus were not meant to need irrigation indefinitely, but only at first to get established.  It’s been 3 years since the irrigation system was put in.
Mary Beth will ask about PUC how we can see what our usage is, and Patricia will look into getting the system problems addressed.
Next meeting:  Tuesday, June 4 at 7pm at the Ingleside Branch Library, unless otherwise notified.
Respectfully submitted,
Barbara VanderBorght

SFPA: Marissa
SF Public Works Update
Julia Brashares has left Public Works.  Our new (temporary) liaison will be Ramses Alvarez.  His contact info: ramses.alvarez@sfdpw.  Phone: 415.641.2349.
We have enjoyed working with Julia since the beginning of this project, first at SFPA, then DPW.  We will miss her and wish her the best in her future endeavors.
Parcel 4 Update
LMNOP has submitted a bid to finish the work!  Including landscaping, but not signage or garbage cans, it comes to $165,852.  (The previous quote to finish construction was for $63,444, but this was before having to meet City requirements, and didn’t include landscaping). NOTE: Marissa sent out the budget breakdown in email of 3/15
Our Project Manager at LMNOP has changed.  Ian has left, we are now working with Tyler Pew, who is one of the owners.
We had some questions/concerns which Marissa will look into and get back to us on:
Will the railing included in the estimate be the original railing in Nahal’s plan. or the less expensive alternative chose to meet financial constraints (which now no longer exist).
Confirm that LMNOP will bolt in the cement base for one bollard on Parcel 1, as previously agreed upon
Would the new Green Infrastructure Grant offered by PUC be appropriate for us?  What would it cover?
Do we need to apply for a new Water Meter grant?  Ae there any rebates included in that grant. This will affect what LMNOP will cover in irrigation.  It was not thought that they would be handling the Grant – that will be up to us.
NOTE:  Marissa sent us an email (3/15) responding to these questions:
  • The landscaping line item is inclusive of plant purchase
  • The railing is not the value engineered option, it is the original design, as requested
  • Tyler will make sure the extra bollard on Parcel 1 is accounted for
  • As requested, they will replace the slates on the fence rather than re-using the old slates since they are a bit old by now
  • Neither Tyler nor Ian has any knowledge of the water meter info being handed off to Ian. As a reminder, we need to have a Ridge Lane Neighbor step up and take a lead on this. We need irrigation in before planting and the water meter will take a few months to coordinate.
We confirmed that we will put the water meter for Parcel 4 on Parcel 4, not a shared meter between 3 and 4 to be placed on Parcel 3 as originally configured.  Do we need to have Nahal re-situate it on the plans?
Barbara encountered a group (Planet Drum) doing an Urban Coastal Prairies Project.  She will look into this further to see if they might want to partner with us.
Time Frame/Next Steps
Marissa and Tyler will put together a contract which will then have to go through various City approval processes.  This might take 2-3 months, then come to us for signatures (Warren and Mary Beth).
Other
Barbara attended the SFPA daylong Partner Conference on March 2.  A summary will come out later.

In Attendance:  Neighbors:  Mary Beth D’Alonzo; Danielle Casey Callaghan; Scot Kauffman; Moneka Ubanske; Robert Muehlbauer; Lynn Yuan; Barbara VanderBorght

SFPA: Marissa Alexander
Mary Beth Chaired the meeting.
Report from Marissa
LMNOP has had to rebid everything because now their subcontractors also have to meet all the City requirements.  They have (as of 2/5) not formally agreed to finish Parcel 4, but they are going ahead with the process to meet City requirements.
Marissa: Is there an update on this?
We can still apply for a CCG this year – look for the announcement stating the application date.  Who is willing to write up the grant proposal?
Money from this grant and any funds we get from private or non-city of SF, will not be subject to the City restrictions and requirements.
We would like to compensate Eric and Nahal for some of the extra time/work they have put into our project, but this would have to come from an unrestricted fund, not MOHCD, at this point.
We need to raise some money!
Water Meter
Due to the development of the land adjacent to Parcel 3, it was suggested that we put in a meter just for Parcel 4, since a water line will be going in on 3 for the houses.
We need to find out more about the status of the meter and the PUC Grant for it from Patricia.
NOTE:  Patricia reports that LMNOP took the grant info from her quite awhile ago and that they were going to follow up on it.  Marissa, can you please check on this with them?
NERT
Mary Beth announced that there will be a NERT training at Lick Wilmerding H.S. sometime in March.  She will let us know more.  Also, if we are interested, we can have them do a 2 hour workshop for our group.  People are definitely interested.
Minutes
It was noted that it seems rather difficult to find the minutes on our website – could Eric please put a link to the minutes in a more noticeable location on the site?  Thank you in advance!
Next Meeting:
Tuesday, March 5 at 7pm at the Ingleside Library, unless otherwise notified.
