REV. AMOS C. BROW N, PRESIDENT

SAN FRANCISCO HOUSING AUTHORITY Date: Friday, March 30, 2012 To:

Board of Commissioners

From: Henry A. Alvarez III, Executive Director Re:

Responses to Public Comment at Commission Meeting on April 26, 2012

Commenter Helani Ting, resident of Park Merced expressed concern that she does not think her utility bills are calculated correctly because of shared utility meters at Park Merced. Staff Response: Park Merced uses a common practice of determining rates for billing tenants for utilities based on the size of the unit and/or the number of occupants in a unit. Information regarding how utilities are to be billed is contained in the lease agreement that Ms. Ting signed when she moved into Park Merced. If Ms. Ting disputes the rate she is being charged for utilities she can bring this to the attention of Park Merced. Commenter James Mc Nealey, resident at 1750 Mc Allister, expressed concern that his neighbor is engaging in illegal activity within the unit. Additionally, Mr. Mc Nealey stated that he did not have hot water in his unit. Staff Response: In response to his complaints, the Authority offered Mr. Mc Nealey a transfer to a new unit, which he refused. Additionally, SFHA staff is working with the San Francisco Police Department to address Mr. Mc Nealey’s concerns regarding alleged illegal activity in the neighbor’s unit. Furthermore, the SFHA recently repaired the water heater system to avoid the problem of inconsistent delivery of hot water in the building.

AGENDA SAN FRANCISCO HOUSING AUTHORITY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

Agenda Category:

Informational: Executive Office

Agenda Title:

Procedure for Converting SFHA Communities to Non-Smoking

Presented By:

Roger Crawford, Special Assistant to the Executive Director

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Commission’s request, the following is a brief overview of the laws and policies that encourage entities like the Housing Authority to adopt non-smoking policies. Also included in the discussion is an overview as to how the SFHA could adopt such a policy within its communities. A. Laws and Policies The Federal, State and Local government have all encouraged owners of Multi Unit Housing Complex’s to adopt smoke free policy. 1.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

On July 17, 2009 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Issued PIH -200921(HA) regarding non-smoking policies in public housing. The notice “strongly encourages Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to implement non-smoking policies in some or all of their public housing units.” (Cross Reference 24 CFR 903.7(b)(3); 24 CFR 903.7(e)(1)). Attachments: None Copies of any attached documents are available at the clerk’s desk. DEPARTMENTS REQUESTED ACTION: None. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S RECOMMENDATION: None.

13


Non-Smoking May 10, 2012 Page 2

Because environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) can migrate between units in multifamily housing, causing respiratory illness, heart disease, cancer, and other adverse health effects in neighboring families, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is encouraging PHAs to adopt non-smoking policies. (See attachment I.)

2.

California Civil Code section 1947.5

“A landlord of a residential dwelling unit, as defined in Section 1940, or his or her agent, may prohibit the smoking of a cigarette, as defined in Section 104556 of the Health and Safety Code, or other tobacco product on the property or in any building or portion of the building, including any dwelling unit, other interior or exterior area, or the premises on which it is located, in accordance with this article.” Note: The lease must include a provision that specifies the areas on the property where smoking is prohibited. 3.

San Francisco Local Ordinance

Applicable Law: 1009.22(f), (i)

San Francisco Health Code, Article 19F, Sections 1009.21(f), (k), (0);

The Department of Public Health encourages Multi-Unit or Multi-Unit Housing Complex (MUHC) to adopt smoke-free buildings. “The intent of the law is to protect residents from exposure to second hand smoke in order to save lives. Smoke free housing policies are the best protection and will save lives. Such policies simply require that smokers go outside to smoke. They do not prohibit smokers from living in a unit. DPH strongly recommends that MUHC’s that have adopted smoke free policies continue to enforce those policies through lease/occupancy agreements and/or home owner’s covenants, conditions and restrictions. There is no constitutional right to smoke; as smoking is not protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or any other Housing and Urban Development-enforced civil rights authorities.”

14


Non-Smoking May 10, 2012 Page 3

Thus, based on these laws and policies, if the SFHA were to adopt a non-smoking policy, it would be well within local, state and federal recommendations. B. Implementation PHA Plans: PHAs opting to implement a non-smoking policy should update their PHA plans. According to 24 CFR 903.7(e), their plan must include their statement of operation and management and the rules and standards that will apply to their projects when the PHA implements their non-smoking policy. PHAs are encouraged to revise their lease agreements to include the non-smoking provisions. If PHAs institute non-smoking policies, they should ensure that there is consistent application among all projects and buildings in their housing inventory in which non-smoking policies are being implemented. The SFHA is currently going through its annual plan process and can adopt new policies and amend its lease through this process (See attachment II). Lease Amendments: The Housing Authority could also amend its lease outside of the annual plan process to enforce a non-smoking policy in individual units. There is typically a 90-120 day notice and public comment period for any amendments to the lease. (See attachment III.)

Agenda Title:

Resolution Authorizing the Executive Director to Enter Into a Site Based Wait List Agreement with Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation

Presented by:

Nicole McCray Dickerson, Acting Director Section 8

SUMMARY: The Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (“TNDC”) currently manages 70 Section 8 project based units at the following sites: 1. Dalt Hotel, 34 Turk Street, San Francisco, CA, 2. West Hotel, 141-145 Eddy Street, San Francisco, CA TNDC approached the San Francisco Housing Authority (“SFHA”) with a proposal to manage site based wait lists for the 70 units. Currently, TNDC has over fifteen units that it cannot lease-up from the SFHA’s wait list. The single room occupancy (“SRO”) list managed by the SFHA does not have any more referrals for TNDC. To expedite TNDC’s need to lease space at their sites SFHA staff is seeking, through an MOU, to allow TNDC to manage its own site based wait list. [Continued on Page 2] Attachment:

Proposed MOU between the San Francisco Housing Authority and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation

II. Resolution Copies of any attached documents are available at the clerk’s desk. DEPARTMENTS REQUESTED ACTION: Staff recommends adoption of this Resolution.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S RECOMMENDATION: I concur with the requested action.

Agenda Item No. 2 Date: May 10, 2012 55


TNDC Site Based Waiting List May 10, 2012 Page 2 PROCESS: The following steps will be taken in order to implement the site based wait list system: a. Administrative Plan The SFHA will include site based wait lists for TNDC’s properties as part of the annual plan process. The Administrative Plan will be presented to the Board of Commissioners at the end of June. b. Exhaust the Wait List 24 CFR Section 983.251 provides the following: “(2) The PHA may use a separate waiting list for admission to PBV units or may use the same waiting list for both tenant-based assistance and PBV assistance. If the PHA chooses to use a separate waiting list for admission to PBV units, the PHA must offer to place applicants who are listed on the waiting list for tenant-based assistance on the waiting list for PBV assistance.” (Emphasis Added) “(3) The PHA may use separate waiting lists for PBV units in individual projects or buildings (or for sets of such units) or may use a single waiting list for the PHA's whole PBV program.” (Emphasis Added)

Before TNDC can create its own wait list, the SFHA must offer to place applicants who are on its current tenant based wait list the opportunity to be placed on TNDC’s project/site based wait list.1 c. Referrals Once the SFHA has completed the process of offering applicants the opportunity to be placed on TNDC’s site based wait lists, TNDC can then begin the process of creating/adding applicants to its site based list. As units are vacated TNDC will then pull prospective tenants off of their site based list and refer them to the SFHA for screening, i.e. income verification, criminal background check.

1

This will help the SFHA in purging its current list of over 11,000 applicants.
