UPDATE - March 23, 2011
Please take a moment to review an article entitled, SF street repairs prompt push for November bond, published in the San Francisco Chronicle on March 23, 2011. The essay provides a few details on plans by elected leaders at City Hall to address the precarious condition of a vast majority of streets in San Francisco. To wit:
...Mayor Ed Lee and others are calling for a $150 million bond measure for repaving on the November ballot, along with another form of dedicated funding, like a parcel tax or increase in vehicle license fees.Note that additional funding options, as detailed in our previous blog posts, below, may consist of a parcel tax levied on commercial property owners at $0.174 per square foot based on the percentage of daily trips generated by the property.
Also, the Proposed 2012-2021 Capital Plan - including infrastructure and streets - is complete. Please download individual chapters from the ONESF website or the entire Proposed 2012-2021 Capital Plan, here.
