City Agencies Update: SFAA welcomes back the Department of Public Works (DPW), San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), Department of Building Inspection (DBI), Department of Environment (DOE) and the SF Treasurer and Tax Collector Jose Cisneros. Learn more about each department and current programs that they are working on. Followed by Q&A.

Charles Higueras, with the Justice Facilities Improvement Program (JFIP) and Earthquake Safety and Response Bond (ESER) Manager will also update members on the  ESER March 2020 ballot.  The City and County of San Francisco is proposing a $628.5 million Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response (ESER) bond for the March 2020 ballot. The purpose of this bond is to fund upgrades and much-needed improvements to capital infrastructure that will allow San Francisco to quickly respond to a major earthquake or other disaster and recover from its aftermath.

Upcoming Event
Multi-Family Housing Fire Prevention Workshop 

In the wake of several high-profile apartment fires, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a comprehensive set of new safety requirements for all multifamily building owners. Even though some aspects of these laws have been in effect since 2017, many owners still don’t know all of the requirements of this legislation. 
SFAA is working together with the San Francisco Fire Department and the Department of Building Inspection to host a free educational fire safety workshop. The one-time-only event is open to the entire community.
In addition to representatives from city agencies, the event will also include an industry expert who can speak to the logistics behind implementing these requirements, as well as a viewing of the video that all tenants are supposed to watch as a part of this new legislation. Vendors who service fire escapes and perform other life-safety tasks will also be on hand to answer questions.
Come and get practical tips on keeping your buildings and tenants safe.
When:Thursday, September 5, 2019
Time: 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.
Where: Jewish Community Center, 3200 California Street, Kanbar Hall, San Francisco, CA
