BUILDING OPERATIONS and MANAGEMENT
State law mandates that all new multi-unit buildings beginning in 2018 must have individual water meters (i.e. submetering) for each living unit. How will this be done at 730 Stanyan? What procedures will be in place to collect payment from each unit in the building? Will 1/2 GPM aerators be installed on faucet fixtures?
Will you provide Energy Star kitchen appliances to keep the electric bill low for the residents? Will the tenants be able to select Clean Power SF or PG&E as their energy provider? Or, will building management mass enroll all units in Clean Power SF 100% Renewable, thus lowering the carbon footprint?
In the event of an emergency (i.e. earthquake, fire) when elevators will not be in operation, how will persons with mobility challenges find a secure space for rescue? Will there be smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in each unit? (presume the entire building will be all electric). Will smoking be allowed in the building and/or the apartments?
What are the protocols when residents do not provide or delay their rent payments? What procedures are in place to regularly audit the income of tenants, to maintain their "affordable" status? Will tenants be disqualified, and thus evicted, if they improve their income? Or if they violate other lease provisions?
What regular, periodic reporting to the public will be made available on the status of the numbers of tenants in each income category, the numbers of tenants removed because of exceeding the income qualification they initially had at move-in, and other significant building financial management items? After all, it is the public that is subsidizing the housing.
What is the estimated cost of building and furnishing the structure? How will tenants be able to access the "urban agriculture" area on the Waller St. end of the building? There is no public access point on the 5th/ 6th floor.
