We recently submitted petitions to SFDPW for mechanical street sweeping from over 60% of residents on the 1700 block of Clay Street. We had learned that both the 1600 and 1800 blocks of Clay are included in weekly street cleaning, but the 1700 block was not. The process was not complicated, and was actually welcomed by DPW. Our campaign was successful, SFMTA posted “No Parking” signs for the days and hours of scheduled cleaning, DPW has confirmed that cleaning will begin next week (4 February) and they anticipate that we will see a difference within 4-6 weeks. Thank you to the residents who support this action, and kudos to SFDPW and SFMTA for responding so quickly.
