13. Development of a Potential Local Transportation Revenue Measure and Expenditure Plan – INFORMATION*  memo

The Mayor and several members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors have collaborated on a Transportation Expenditure Plan that would direct approximately $100 million per year for 25 years to critical transit services and transportation improvements in every neighborhood, including safer, well-maintained streets, transit maintenance and expansion, and Muni equity and affordability programs. The Expenditure Plan is described in a charter amendment that would create General Fund set-asides for homelessness programs and for transportation (Attachment 1). The budget set-asides would be funded by the City’s General Fund. A general sales tax increase of 0.75% has also been proposed for the November ballot. While the two measures are not legally linked, if both measures were approved, they would result at least initially, in approximately equivalent increases in General Fund revenues and expenditures. A separate ‘back-up’ option under consideration for the November ballot, should the Charter Amendment not move forward, is a dedicated 0.5% sales tax increase ordinance for transportation only (Attachment 3). The Expenditure Plans of both measures are identical. In order to keep the transportation sales tax ‘back-up’ option on the table, we must hold a public hearing on the sales tax Expenditure Plan before the Metropolitan Transportation Commission can approve the plan. This June 28 Board meeting will serve as the official public hearing for this purpose. A hearing on the Charter Amendment legislation has also been scheduled for the June 30 Rules Committee at the Board of Supervisors. We are seeking input on the Charter Amendment Measure and Transportation Expenditure Plan from the Board and public.
