A Big Win for City Infrastructure

Yesterday voters helped further the City’s 10-Year Capital Plan call to continue making smart investments in infrastructure by approving Proposition A, the $400 million Earthquake Safety and Emergency Response Bond (ESER 2014).  ESER 2014 will fund critical seismic and reliability upgrades to neighborhood fire and police stations, the high-pressure Emergency Water Firefighting System, and other important facilities that enable first responders to quickly and efficiently respond in the wake of an earthquake or other disaster.

Voters overwhelming supported the bond, which passed with a 79% approval rate. ESER 2014 is the second of three G.O. Bond measures that the Capital Plan proposes. The first ESER Bond was passed in 2010. The impact of these two measures on San Francisco’s public safety infrastructure and its ability to withstand large earthquakes or other major events will be appreciated by generations to come.
