Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer
Mayor Faulconer has put the City on the road to repair nearly half of all San Diego streets in just six years, something never before done before. His pledge to repair 1,000 miles of roads within five years was completed ahead of schedule and cemented street repair as the City’s top infrastructure priority.
Mayor Faulconer is focused on managing the City’s finances responsibly to make historic investments in roads and communities and expand services like parks and libraries that were cut due to the city’s fiscal mess in the early 2000s. Neighborhood investments include building or renovating 50 parks in five years; opening three new branch libraries; investing in public safety including nine new fire stations and launching the largest police recruitment campaign in recent city history.
Mayor Faulconer more than tripled annual infrastructure funding since he took office, with the City now investing more than half a billion dollars into its capital improvements budget each year. The infrastructure reforms Mayor Faulconer launched after taking office have produced exceptional results for neighborhoods across San Diego. Now, shovels are getting in the ground faster and poorly performing contractors are being held accountable.
