San Francisco Proposition E: California, City Responsibility for Street Trees and Sidewalks Amendment

Ballot Question:

Shall the City amend the Charter to transfer responsibility from property owners to the City for maintaining trees on sidewalks around their property as well as sidewalks damaged by the trees, and pay for this by setting aside $19 million per year from its General Fund, adjusted annually based on City revenues?

A “Yes” vote means: 

A yes vote is a vote in favor of shifting responsibility for maintenance of trees along public streets and surrounding sidewalks from private property owners to the city and allocating $19 million per year from the general fund to pay for the maintenance.

A “No” vote means:

A no vote is a vote against this proposition, thereby leaving private property owners responsible for the maintenance of street trees and surrounding sidewalks.
