Is San Francisco ready to shine on?

The local and national opprobrium over well-publicized dirty streets in San Francisco has struck a nerve. A group of business, civic, and community leaders teamed up with Mayor London Breed on July 14 to unveil Shine On SF, a three-year initiative to enlist residents in an effort to clean up the city’s streets and other public environments. The initiative will create opportunities for people to volunteer in cleaning the city (such as with neighborhood cleanups, gardening projects, and more) and will invest in immediate efforts to address graffiti and power wash sidewalks, as well as expand efforts to respond to residents’ requests.
