SEC. 5.4-1.  FINDINGS; ESTABLISHMENT AND ORGANIZATION.
   (a)   The Board of Supervisors finds and declares that it is in the public interest to officially recognize walking as an important component of our transportation system, and as a key component to creating livable and suitable communities. Accordingly, the Board of Supervisors seeks to develop and implement focused policies that encourage pedestrian safety, education, and convenience in transportation and city planning.
      Over the past fifty years, many American cities, including San Francisco, have seen a dramatic shift away from pedestrian and public transportation toward a reliance on the private automobile for primary transportation. In that same time period, the City has seen a reduction of its public walkways, pedestrian rights-of-way, and valuable inner-city green spaces.
      In San Francisco, as throughout the world, the quality of urban life is being threatened by encroaching environmental actors. San Franciscans also suffer from increasing poor air quality, elevated noise levels, increased traffic congestion, longer trip times, and diminishing public space. These and other factors have led San Francisco to adopt a Transit-First policy favoring public transportation, bicycles, and pedestrian travel over the use of automobiles.
      The City's streetscape is similar to many cities and towns in Europe. Narrow streets and interesting destinations combine to make our streets conducive to walking. Encouraging pedestrian presence on our City's streets and sidewalks not only reduces our City's reliance on the automobile, but also helps create communities and neighborhoods that are deemed livable and desirable. Better pedestrian planning and policies will not only serve the approximately 10% of San Franciscans who walk to work on a regular basis, but also all visitors to and residents of San Francisco because each person is a pedestrian at some point in every trip they take.
      San Francisco has an unusually high rate of pedestrian injuries for a city its size. In the past five years, nearly 5,000 pedestrians have been injured on city streets, and over 130 people have been killed. Our seniors, youth, and citizens with disabilities are especially at risk for being injured and/or killed in a motor vehicle collision. Nationally, pedestrians account for only 13% of traffic fatalities and 2.2% of traffic injuries. However, in San Francisco, they account for more than half of the motor-vehicle related deaths and about one-third of the hospitalizations and have outnumbered or equaled car occupants in traffic fatalities in San Francisco in nine of the past ten years.
   (b)   There shall be established a Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee. This Advisory Committee, composed of concerned and informed residents, will provide a source of expertise on issues concerning pedestrian safety, convenience, ambiance, and planning. The Advisory Committee shall consist of 17 voting members appointed as set forth below.
      (1)   Seat 1 shall be held by a representative from a pedestrian safety organization, appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
      (2)   Seats 2 and 3 shall be held by representatives from senior or disability organizations, appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
      (3)   Seat 4 shall be held by a representative from a bicycle or other non-motorized wheeled personal transport organization, appointed by the Board of Supervisors;
      (4)   Seat 5 shall be held by a representative from a transit or environmental organization, appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
      (5)   Seats 6 through 16 shall be appointed by individual members of the Board of Supervisors, with each member of the Board appointing one member of the Advisory Committee.
      (6)   Seat 17 shall be held by a parent of a student in the San Francisco Unified School District, appointed by the Superintendent of the San Francisco Unified School District. If at any time the Superintendent declines to appoint an individual to Seat 17 for 60 days or longer, the Board of Supervisors may appoint a new member with the same or different qualifications to fill the seat for the remainder of the term.
   (c)   The Superintendent of the San Francisco Unified School District may appoint a member of the San Francisco Unified School District’s Student Advisory Council to serve as a non-voting member of the Advisory Committee. The individual appointed to this seat may participate in Advisory Committee discussions to the same extent as other members of the Advisory Committee but may not vote on any matter and shall not be counted toward a quorum.
   (d)   The following City departments shall designate a non-voting representative to attend Advisory Committee meetings at the request of the Advisory Committee: the Department of Public Health, the Municipal Transportation Agency, the Department of Public Works, the Planning Department, the Police Department, the Recreation and Park Department, District Attorney’s Office, and the Mayor’s Office on Disability. Any other City departments whose work impacts pedestrians shall also designate a non-voting representative to Advisory Committee meetings upon request of the Advisory Committee. Every year by July 1, each department required to designate a non-voting representative shall inform the Advisory Committee in writing of the name, work phone number, and work email address of its representative.
   (e)   All City departments, commissions, boards, and agencies shall cooperate with the Advisory Committee in conducting its business. The Board of Supervisors also requests that the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, San Francisco Unified School District, the Successor Agency to the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, and the National Park Service assist in the work of the Advisory Committee.
   (f)   Advisory Committee members shall serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority. Any Advisory Committee member who misses three regular meetings of the Advisory Committee within a six-month period without the express approval of the Advisory Committee at or before each missed meeting shall be deemed to have resigned from the Advisory Committee 10 days after the third unapproved absence. The Advisory Committee shall inform the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors of each such resignation, and the appointing authority shall appoint a successor to that seat.
   (g)   The term of each Advisory Committee member shall be two years.

Editor's note
   Sections 5.30 through 5.36 as originally enacted by the electorate in Proposition F on March 5, 2002, were numbered as Sections 5.1 through 5.8. Because the Administrative Code already contained sections with those numbers and because Proposition F itself contained other clerical inconsistencies, the editor has renumbered this article as Sections 5.30 through 5.36 and accordingly revised internal references in the text to the new numbering. Sections 5A.30 through 5A.36, as originally enacted by the electorate in Proposition P on November 5, 2002, were numbered as Sections 5.30 through 5.36. Because this article already contained sections with those numbers, the editor has renumbered the provisions of Proposition P as Sections 5A.30 through 5A.36. and accordingly revised internal references in the text to the new numbering.

PUBLIC UTILITIES REVENUE BOND OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
SEC. 5A.30.  FINDINGS.
   The people of the City and County find and declare that:
   (a)   The City's 100-year-old water, power and clean water public utility infrastructure is suffering from decades of deferred maintenance. The regional water collection and transmission system, stretching from the Tuolumne River headwaters at Hetch Hetchy to the San Francisco County Line, supplies water to the City as well as to 1.7 million residents and businesses in Alameda, Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. This system is in need of substantial repair and/or replacement. In the event of system failure, the City and its suburban customers could be without water for up to 30 days, with portions of the service area going without water for as long as 60 days. The water distribution and wastewater treatment systems within the City are in a similar state of deterioration, threatening the health and welfare of City residents, visitors and the business community.
   (b)   Over the past 25 years, funds for upgrading the water collection and power generation facilities of Hetch Hetchy have been in short supply. During this same period, the waste water treatment plants have aged to the point where significant capital improvements are necessary in order for the City to remain in compliance with applicable federal and state water quality regulations.
   (c)   The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission ("PUC") has never prepared an integrated and coordinated long-term strategic plan consisting of a capital improvement program, a long-range financial plan, an assessment of future utility needs and the evaluation of alternative technologies, private-public partnerships and non-rate payer revenue enhancements. Focusing on short-term planning, the PUC has turned out a series of bond issues, such as Propositions A and B in 1997, which have been promoted to the voters on the basis of broad project generalities. Even within the PUC itself, the list of projects earmarked for specific bond revenues are in a constant state of flux. Projects are frequently delayed and often uncompleted years after funding was approved by the voters.
   (d)   Over the past 20 years, the PUC has readily consented to the transfer of "surplus" Hetch Hetchy revenues to the City's general fund. Conservatively, these transfers have cost the PUC more than $500 million. During this same period of time, the utility infrastructure deteriorated and rates escalated dramatically.
   (e)   The PUC estimates that over the next 20 years, the cost of needed capital improvement projects will amount to hundreds of millions of dollars. Although the PUC's capital improvement list undoubtedly contains individual projects that should go forward as soon as practicable, the design, bidding and contract drafting process often takes years to complete. In the absence of long-term strategic planning, individual projects have been frequently delayed and, in some cases, actually abandoned as funding and project priorities unaccountably shifted over time.
   (f)   The health and welfare of all of the PUC's customers would be promoted by the creation of a qualified body committed to a persistent, vigorous and independent review of the expenditure of revenue bond funds for the PUC's capital improvement program over the next decade. An on-going review of this kind would be of material assistance to both the PUC and the Board of Supervisors ("Board") in ensuring that the program is carried out in compliance with all applicable laws.
(Added by Proposition P, 11/5/2002)
SEC. 5A.31.  ESTABLISHMENT AND PURPOSE.
   (a)   There is hereby established a Public Utilities Revenue Bond Oversight Committee (the "Committee"), which shall have the responsibility of reporting publicly to the Mayor, the PUC and the Board of Supervisors ("Board") regarding the PUC's (or, to the extent allowed by law, any charter entity succeeding to the PUC's authority related to expenditure of revenue bonds) expenditure of revenue bond proceeds on the repair, replacement, upgrading and expansion of the City's water collection, power generation, water distribution and wastewater treatment facilities.
   (b)   The Committee shall provide oversight to ensure that: (1) The proceeds from revenue bonds authorized by the Board and/or the voters of the City are expended in accordance with the authorizing bond resolution and applicable law; (2) Bond proceeds are expended solely for uses, purposes and projects authorized in the bond resolution; and (3) Revenue bond funds are appropriately expended for authorized capital improvements so that an uninterrupted supply of water and power continues to flow to the City and to the PUC's customers. The Committee may comment to the Board of Supervisors on the development and drafting of proposed legislation pertaining to PUC revenue bonds prior to a Board determination regarding whether to submit a measure for voter approval or authorizing the issuance of revenue bonds, if voter approval is not otherwise required. The Board is not required to accept the Committee's comments or recommendations on such bond proposals. Further, the Committee shall not participate or interfere in the selection process of any vendor hired to execute bond funded projects.
   (c)   In furtherance of its purpose, the Committee may engage in any of the following activities:
      (1)   Inquiring into the disbursement and expenditure of the proceeds of PUC revenue bonds authorized and issued in accordance with the San Francisco Charter by receiving any and all reports, financial statements, correspondence or other documents and materials requested by the Committee related to the expenditure of revenue bond funds by the PUC;
      (2)   Holding public hearings to review the disbursement and expenditure of the proceeds of such revenue bonds;
      (3)   Inspecting facilities financed with the proceeds of such revenue bonds;
      (4)   Receiving and reviewing copies of any capital improvement project proposals or plans developed by the PUC related to the City's water, power or wastewater infrastructure and funded by bond proceeds;
      (5)   Reviewing efforts by the City to maximize bond proceeds by implementing cost-saving measures, including, but not limited to, all of the following: (i) mechanisms designed to reduce the costs of professional, consulting and similar fees and expenses related to site preparation and project design; (ii) recommendations regarding the cost-effective and efficient use of core facilities; (iii) developing and using alternate technologies; and, (iv) accessing other sources of infrastructure funding, excluding bond refunding; and,
      (6)   Commissioning independent review and evaluation of the disbursement and expenditure of the proceeds of such revenue bonds by accessing any funds set aside for this purpose under Subsection (d) of this Section to retain outside auditors, inspectors and necessary experts to conduct such independent review.
   (d)   To the extent permitted by law, in accordance with Sections 5A.35(c) and (d) of this Article, from and after the effective date of this Ordinance one-twentieth of one percent of the gross proceeds from each issuance or sale of public utility revenue bonds shall be deposited in a fund established by the Controller's Office and appropriated by the Board at the direction of the Committee to cover the costs of said Committee.
   (e)   The Board shall, without expending revenue bond funds, provide the Committee with appropriate clerical, technical and administrative assistance in furtherance of its purpose and provide sufficient resources to publicize the conclusions and recommendations of the Committee.
(Added by Proposition P, 11/5/2002)
SEC. 5A.32.  PUBLIC MEETINGS.
   All Committee proceedings shall be subject to the California Public Records Act (Sections 6250, et seq., of the Government Code of the State of California), the City's Sunshine Ordinance (Chapter 67 of this Code) and the Ralph M. Brown Act (Government Code Sections 54950, et seq.). The Committee shall issue regular reports on the results of its activities. A report shall be issued at least once a year. Minutes of the proceedings of the Committee, and all reports issued by the Committee, shall be a matter of public record and made available on the City's website.
(Added by Proposition P, 11/5/2002)

The member appointed by the Controller shall have background and experience in auditing, accounting and project finance.
   (c)   Except as expressly authorized herein, no current officer or employee of the City shall be appointed to the Committee. All members of the Committee shall be subject to applicable conflict-of-interest provisions of local and state law. No vendor, contractor or consultant of the City that performs work funded by bonds issued by the City shall be appointed to the Committee.
   (d)   Each Committee member will serve for no more than two consecutive terms. Upon their initial appointment, three members of the Committee shall be assigned by lot an initial term of two years and the remaining four members shall have an initial term of four years. Thereafter, each Committee member shall serve a four-year term.
   (e)   Each Committee member, except City employees appointed to serve as part of their official City duties and the Budget Analyst or employees of the Budget Analyst, shall be compensated at a rate of $100.00 per month during each year of the member's term of office. Such compensation shall be appropriated by the Board without expending revenue bond funds therefor.
(Added by Proposition P, 11/5/2002)
SEC. 5A.34.  ILLEGAL EXPENDITURES.
   (a)   If, after conducting all appropriate reviews and independent audit of actual expenditures of revenue bond proceeds by the PUC (or, to the extent allowed by law, any charter entity succeeding to the PUC's authority related to expenditure of revenue bonds), the Committee, after consultation with the City Attorney, determines that revenue bond proceeds are being or have been expended for purposes not authorized by the authorizing bond resolution or otherwise amount to an illegal expenditure or illegal waste of such revenue bond proceeds within the meaning of applicable law, the Committee may, by majority vote of all its members, prohibit the further issuance or sale of authorized public utility revenue bonds which have yet to be issued or sold.
   (b)   A decision by the Committee to prohibit the issuance and sale of authorized but as yet unissued or unsold revenue bonds may be appealed by the PUC to the Board within 30 days of the Committee's decision. By two-thirds vote of all its members, the Board by resolution may overturn the Committee's decision and remand the matter to the Committee for further consideration consistent with the views expressed by the Board in its resolution.
   (c)   Alternatively, the Committee's prohibition on the issuance or sale of authorized but unissued or unsold revenue bonds may be vacated by two-thirds vote of all the members of the Board, if the PUC, in response to the report of the Committee, provides evidence of corrective measures satisfactory to the Board.
