Earthquake Bond Vote

Supervisors Catherine Stefani and Sandra Fewer cosponsored a push by Mayor London Breed to put before city voters a $628.5 million bond to fund earthquake safety and critical services. The money raised by the bond would fund seismic retrofitting and resiliency for such public safety infrastructure as the Emergency Firefighting Water System, police stations, and fire stations.

District 2 Supervisor Stefani said the bond “is a vital investment to strengthen our disaster preparedness and public safety infrastructure.”

If approved by voters in March 2020, the bond would provide $275 million for seismic retrofitting for fire stations and other fire department facilities, $153.5 million for the Emergency Firefighting Water System, $121 million for seismic retrofitting and resiliency projects for police facilities, $70 million for disaster response facilities, and $9 million for the 911 call center.
