4.         SFAC MOA Review and Arts Master Plan

            Bob Beck provided an overview of the Arts Commission MOA. Key provisions of the MOA include the drafting of an Arts Master Plan, appointment of an Arts Steering Committee, Selection Panels, and provisions for the maintenance, conservation and insurance of art pieces. Under the MOA, the TIDA Board approves the Arts Master Plan and the final selection of artists, artwork, and projects recommended by the Selection Panels and Steering Committee.


            Jill Manton, SFAC, gave an update on the Arts Master Plan. Ms. Manton reviewed the Plan’s vision, curatorial framework, goals and objectives, sample layout, governance, categories of art programming, art selection process, pre-application workshops, selection panel, and artist in residency program.


Next steps include establishing the Steering Committee in April and a meeting with SFMOMA and other invited art/museums leaders.


            Director Tsen commented on the importance of focusing on the public realm in the Master Plan, and supporting emerging artists. It is important to have the art reflect the island ecology and uniqueness of TI/YBI. Director Tsen made comments on funding and thanked TICD for their forward thinking.

            Director Richardson made comments on importance of thinking big and including youth.

            Director Dunlop thanked Ms. Manton for the excellent presentation and made comments on youth art.


            Kheay Loke, TICD, gave his support of the plan and is happy to participate.  Mr. Loke made comments on funding.


5.         Future TIDA Infrastructure Responsibilities

            When approving the Interagency Memorandum of Agreement on the Ownership and Maintenance of Public Improvements (the “MOA”) constructed as part of the development of Treasure Island at its March Meeting, the Board had requested additional background on TIDA’s future responsibilities and funding.  The MOA is not intended to be a binding agreement or enforceable obligation, but summarizes in a single matrix prior or existing obligations and is intended to record the understanding the agencies as a reference in preparing subsequent agreements or project approvals.


Bob Beck provided an overview of TIDA’s future ownership and maintenance responsibilities as documented in the MOA.  Mr. Beck reviewed the MOA matrix which identifies 62 sub-categories of public improvements of which 13 are identified as owned by TIDA, including parks and open spaces, sea level rise adaptations, the ferry facilities, and specialized street furniture.


            Director Tsen commented that it is important to see overall budget and what are TIDA’s responsibilities.

            Director Dunlop asked questions about maintenance and made comments on a tagging problem on TI.

            Director Richardson asked that ownership, maintenance, and obligations for TIDA and TIMMA be identified.
