City Infrastructure: Mayor Announces Record Level of Capital Investment
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced a $411.3 million proposed two-year capital budget to invest in San Francisco’s future. This record investment continues Mayor Lee’s strong commitment to improving San Francisco’s infrastructure and continuing to follow the good government recommendations of the Capital Planning Committee. The investments included in the proposal will make the City more resilient, safer, and more livable. It addresses critical public safety projects, makes big investments to address growth, and takes care of existing infrastructure.
“My proposed capital budget is six times larger than when I took office in 2011, demonstrating my commitment to making San Francisco safer, more resilient, and more livable,” said Mayor Lee. “These investments will provide critical upgrades to streets, parks, cultural facilities, and police and fire stations across San Francisco while creating well paid local construction jobs. The investments we make today will have a lasting impact on generations to come, and this is exactly the type of investment we should be making now to ensure our City’s success over the long term.”
