San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer is advocating the City take steps to put ‘Rebuild San Diego’, a measure that would commit sales tax, general fund growth and pension reform savings for street, park and neighborhood upgrades over the next three decades, on the June ballot.
On Monday the mayor and Councilmember Mark Kersey will appear together to discuss steps to move the measure forward. The speech will take place at 12:30 p.m. in front of City Hall.
Councilmember Kersey's measure is projected to secure up to $5 billion for infrastructure projects over the next 30 years. The plan doesn’t include a tax increase.
The mayor endorsed the proposal in his “State of the City” address earlier this month. The City Council is scheduled to vote at 2 p.m. Tuesday to direct the City Attorney’s office to draft the language for the “Rebuild San Diego” measure so it can be ready to be placed on the June 7 ballot.
