The Issue
City Council members want to speed up road and other infrastructure repairs.
Why It Matters
For decades, the hasn’t spent the money required to fix and maintain its streets, buildings, storm drains, leaving San Diego with $840 million worth of needed repairs. During the past two years tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure money has sat idle despite the considerable need.
What They’re Doing About It
In the coming weeks, two council committees will hold hearings almost exclusively devoted to attacking San Diego’s massive and unwieldy infrastructure repair backlog.
