Mayor, supervisor propose plan to improve infrastructure 

Mayor Gavin Newsom and Supervisor David Chiu introduced a $27 billion plan for critical improvements to city streets, schools, libraries, hospitals and parks.

The 10-year capital plan recommends spending $17.8 billion to rebuild and repair The City’s streets, transportation system, emergency response network, sewer and water system as well as $9 billion for schools and transportation projects such as the Transbay Terminal and at Bayview Hunters Point.

This plan will better position The City to garner federal stimulus money, city officials said.

“The longer we defer these repairs and improvements, the more imminent and costly these become,” said Ed Lee, city administrator.

“This plan is an important tool in guiding The City and prioritizing short and long term needs.”
