Rebuilding San Diego
Mark is committed to Rebuilding San Diego, making it a better place to live and do business. As chair of the Council's Infrastructure Committee, he is leading the charge to improve San Diego's deteriorating roads, sidewalks, storm drains, parks and libraries. His June 2016 Rebuild San Diego ballot measure would create a dedicated stream of funding for infrastructure and secure up to $4 billion over the next 25 years.
Tackling the Infrastructure Backlog
The City's backlog of infrastructure needs continue to increase, now at a staggering $1 billion plus price tag. Mark's leadership is helping create a better picture of the issue through the funding of never-before-done assessments of key assets like sidewalks and parks and recreation facilities that are helping us hone in on a more accurate number.
Completing a Multi-Year Capital plan
Through the development of the city's first-ever, multi-year capital plan, Mark is driving the City towards a comprehensive approach to acquiring, planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, renovating, and rehabilitating the City's infrastructure.
Engaging the Public
Mark's Neighborhood Input Policy adopted in 2013 made public input a formal part of the process to prioritize infrastructure projects. Meetings are held annually throughout the city and feedback is integrated into long-term planning.
