Sherri shares the concern many neighbors have about the deterioration of our streets. After years of deferred maintenance, our City's streets are in poor condition. Believing that basic city services need to be a top priority, Sherri is working to get our streets back in shape. Since taking office in December, 2008, we have resurfaced 27.3 miles of streets in District 1.
2010 Winter Storms
Recent storms have worsened the damage on already impacted City streets. Please report needed repairs to the City Streets Division at (619) 527-7500, or report online at Street Division Service Request.
On January 4, 2011, Sherri voted with City Council to declare a local emergency regarding the 2010 winter storms. This action allows the City to receive financial assistance for recovery through the California Disaster Assistance Act.

Working for You on Street Repair
"Improving the condition of our City's streets will enhance the quality of life for our neighborhoods and make it more attractive to do business in our communities."
-Councilmember Sherri Lightner
Sherri issued a request on November 17, 2010 for street repairs in District 1. The sections of pavement she requested be repaired are some of the worst in our neighborhoods, based on concerns Sherri has heard from residents and field observations made by her staff.
Responding to Sherri's request on January 11, 2011, the City has added an additional 8.6 miles of District 1 streets to the City's upcoming repair list. These include sections of Genesee Avenue, Prestwick Drive, Del Mar Heights Road, and Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard, among others.
Previously, we issued a $103 million bond in the spring of 2009 that will allow the City to tackle a number of the $1 billion in deferred maintenance projects that have stalled due to lack of funds. This includes the resurfacing of 281 miles of City streets.
If you have any questions about these repairs, suggestions for additional streets to repair, or other comments, please contact our office.
