6:00 1. Committee Meeting Call to Order

6:02 2. Adopt a Motion of Support to Endorse the Proposed San Francisco Transportation Expenditure Plan – INFORMATION/ACTION*  memo

As presented to the Citizens Advisory Committee at its special meeting on June 15 and regular meeting on June 22, the Mayor and several members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors (BOS) have collaborated on a Transportation Expenditure Plan that would direct new local revenues to critical transit services and transportation improvements in every neighborhood, including safer, well-maintained streets, transit maintenance and expansion, and Muni equity and affordability programs. The Expenditure Plan is described in both a charter amendment that would create General Fund set-asides for homelessness programs and for transportation (Attachment 1) and a second ‘back-up’ option: a dedicated 0.5% sales tax increase ordinance for transportation only (Attachment 2). The Expenditure Plans of both measures are identical, with the same six categories and shares of funding for each category, although the measures differ in their administration and voter threshold. The Transportation Authority would administer three of the six categories of investment in the charter amendment scenario and all six categories in the sales tax scenario. Attachment 3 shows the proposed staff revisions to the transportation sales tax expenditure plan that we propose for consideration at the July 13 Budget and Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors. They mirror amendments made to the Charter Amendment at the July 7 Board of Supervisors’ Rules Committee. The BOS would need to make a decision to place a local transportation revenue measure on the ballot by the end of July. The Transportation Authority Board will consider this item at a special meeting on July 12.
