More about the program.
In November 2003, San Francisco voters passed Proposition C, amending the City Charter to mandate that the City Services Auditor (CSA) division of the Controller’s Office work with the San Francisco Public Works department in three ways:
- To develop objective and measurable standards for street maintenance;
- To establish publicly posted street maintenance and staff schedule compliance reports; and
- To issue an annual report on the state of the City’s streets and sidewalks as measured by evaluations.
San Francisco Public Works has contracted JBR Partners, Inc. (JBR) to conduct street and sidewalk evaluations since FY 2013-14. JBR follows the evaluation methodology described in the 2012 Street & Sidewalk Maintenenace Standards Manual. Twenty-two standards are evaluated within five different street and sidewalk categories:
- Street cleanliness;
- Sidewalk cleanliness;
- Trash receptacles; and
- Trees and landscaping.
