— May 9, 2018 Jane Kim for Mayor
San Francisco Loves Clean Streets

Jane Kim understands that waste on our streets isn’t just an eyesore, it’s an economic and environmental disaster and a public health crisis waiting to happen. As a Supervisor, she has pushed for additional funding to step-up street cleaning this year and as our next Mayor, she will implement an aggressive plan to clean our streets.

Her "San Francisco Loves Clean Streets" plan includes three immediate steps to address this problem:

  • Partner with non-profit group and Community Benefit Districts to greatly expand deployment of Neighborhood Streets Team which employ homeless individuals to help clean the streets while providing them with job training skills and housing income.
  • Double the number of “Pit Stops” in high problem areas to reduce public urination and defecation and cut the risk of disease.
  • Double the number of street cleaners.

Kim will also appoint a Clean Streets Director to align and coordinate actions amongst all departments responsible for public upkeep and public health.

In the longer term, she will work with business leaders, non-profits, city agencies and community health experts to put in place the preventative and enforcement measures to stop public street disposal.
