CleanSafe365 Congratulates Mayor-Elect Breed

Working Together, We’ll Clean Up San Francisco’s Degraded Street Environment

Congratulations London Breed for becoming the first woman of color to be elected mayor of our great city of San Francisco. Your campaign succeeded as voters put their trust in you to improve and protect one of the world’s best cities.

As you know, the most noticeable and challenging issue San Francisco faces is our degraded street environment. Residents, employees and visitors are forced to step carefully over human waste, broken glass and discarded syringes. It is a daily risk for individuals, an impediment to maintaining and growing businesses and is eroding San Francisco’s global reputation.

Our CleanSafe365 coalition, whose members represent tens of thousands of employees and thousands of businesses who proudly voted in the June 5 election, are frustrated with City Hall’s failed recipe of more funding, more programs and more taxes. In fact, our streets have gotten worse in recent years despite the hundreds of millions of dollars San Francisco spends on programs, policing and clean-up.

We now turn to you, Mayor-Elect Breed. We need you and your administration to provide immediate and sustainable solutions for San Francisco street behavior. Specifically, we ask you to:

Declare a crisis on San Francisco’s streets. This would generate the urgent attention our city needs from the mayor, our city’s service providers and the Board of Supervisors.

Enforce laws protecting residents, visitors. We no longer can ignore those that are a threat to themselves and to our residents, employees and visitors.

Increase accountability for results. We need transparency about resources spent, actions taken and improvements generated by taxpayer-funded service providers.

The CleanSafe365 businesses, merchant groups, civic organizations, community benefit districts and property owners are committed to working with your administration to find and support sustainable solutions.

WEEKLY UPDATE

STREET ISSUES THREATEN VITALITY OF SF RESTAURANTS

Restaurant customers are reluctant to dine outside on a street that is filthy or feels unsafe, which is forcing them to have food delivered rather than eat in restaurants. This shift threatens neighborhood vitality, increases traffic congestion and hurts the overall bottom line of San Francisco restaurants.

We continue to be a strong partner for San Francisco and we implore Mayor-Elect Breed to deliver Clean and Safe Streets 365 Days Each and Every Year.

CleanSafe365 represents hundreds of San Francisco businesses and thousands of employees who proudly serve as city ambassadors and many of whom are longtime residents. We’re tired of watching San Francisco’s street environment become an impediment to growing our businesses, a daily risk for our employees and eroding San Francisco’s global reputation. We want our city leaders and service providers to produce immediate and sustainable solutions and be accountable for measurable results of taxpayer-funded programs.

It’s quite simple – CleanSafe365 wants the streets of San Francisco to be clean and safe every day of the year. We want our city leaders and service providers to produce immediate and sustainable solutions and be accountable for measurable the results of taxpayer-funded programs.

We formed CleanSafe365 to generate immediate and sustainable improvements to the dangerous and dirty street environment in San Francisco. Unfortunately, today residents and guests must step carefully over human waste, broken glass and discarded syringes. The City of San Francisco spends hundreds of millions of dollars annually on programs, policing and clean-up without making improvements. CleanSafe365 is asking our city leaders and service providers to produce immediate and sustainable solutions and be accountable for measurable results of taxpayer-funded programs and to enforce existing laws.

CleanSafe365 will advocate for immediate and sustainable solutions that make the streets of San Francisco clean and safe. We’re focused on ensuring the new mayor’s administration and city service providers deliver measurable results and are held accountable for tangible improvements. Most of our members already have hands-on experience with city programs and we fully expect to continue to be actively engaged partners.

Our city leaders and program providers have worked for years to resolve the degrading street environment in San Francisco. Unfortunately, our street conditions have worsened despite the spending of hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars annually. We ask that our city leaders change bureaucratic oversight of service providers existing spend-based processes to results-based processes and that service providers’ operational plans provide measurement of tangible results that connect to clean and safe streets.

We no longer can ignore those that are a threat to themselves and to our residents, employees and visitors. We need to enforce existing laws to provide the protection for all San Franciscans, including those who are homeless, mentally ill and addicted. We believe “beat” police officers who are present and enforcing existing laws, particularly, in our high-traffic tourist and visitor corridors will lead to safer street conditions

CleanSafe365 is committed to being a strong and engaged partner with our city leaders and our public service providers. Most of our members have relationships with the mayoral candidates and city leaders responsible for working with the homeless, mentally ill and addicts. We’ll continue to provide ideas and support throughout the campaign and after the election for sustainable solutions.
