Planning Department’s General Advertising Sign Program (GASP) - 2011 Annual Report

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Planning Code Section 604.2(h) requires that the Planning Department submit to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors an annual report on the Department’s General Advertising Sign Program (GASP) that includes revenues, expenditures, and a progress report on the program’s activities. Prior to this document, the most recent such report was presented to the Planning Commission on November 19, 2009.

The GASP is the result of legislation passed in 2006 which amended the Planning Code to provide for improved monitoring and enforcement of general advertising signs – commonly known as billboards. The primary goals of the program are to build and maintain an inventory of all general advertising signs in San Francisco, to correct outstanding sign‐related Planning Code violations, and to remove unlawful signs. The GASP’s activities are best understood in the context of 2002’s Proposition G which passed with 78 percent of the vote and prohibited all new general advertising signs within San Francisco.
