He also assisted city departments on compliance with the Language Access Ordinance that ensures equal access to city services and programs for limited English Individuals in San Francisco.

Introducing Ray Law New Legislative Aide for Supervisor Tang D id you know that over 24 tons of mattresses are collected from San Francisco streets and sidewalks each month? And that over 3,000 street and sidewalk dumping requests are submitted to 311 every month as well? In an effort to combat illegal dumping of bulky items, our ofce asked 311 to handle bulky item pick-up requests and route them to Recology on behalf of residents. We are happy to report that 311 quickly implemented a way for San Francisco residents to request a bulky item pickup request by calling 311. Previously, residents could only submit requests by calling Recology directly or submitting a form on their website. We are also working with 311 to allow for requests to be received through their website and smart phone application within the next few months. We would like to thank 311, Recology, and San Francisco Public Works for working with us on this issue. As a reminder, all residential customers – both property owners and tenants – are entitled to one or two free bulky item curbside pick-ups each year.Visit  to learn more about bulky item pick up requests. NEW: You Can Now Request Bulky Item Pickup Through 311  4 O ur Front Yard Ambassadors program helps Sunset residents remove concrete and landscape their front yards with the assistance of experts and volunteers. In total, through the Front Yard Ambassadors Program, we have installed 24 gardens and removed 1,928 square feet of concrete in the Sunset District, which will divert 23,136 (and counting) gallons of water from our combined sewer system. All gardens are planted with drought tolerant and very low maintenance landscaping that tolerates the climate in the Outer Sunset.Participants receive an estimated $1,500 of improvements and are only required to pay for the $185 sidewalk landscaping permit. Applicants must partner with a minimum of four houses on their block (ve total). Applications for the Front Yard Ambassadors Program will be open through November 30 th  and can be found online at . T he lower Great Highway from Sloat Boulevard to Lincoln Way is currently planned for an efcient and cost-effective pavement treatment called “micro-surfacing”. The Department of Public Works (DPW) is applying this technique to more than 250 blocks throughout the City to prolong the life of our streets. Micro-surfacing preserves the asphalt pavement by protecting the surface from the effects of natural aging and the environment. It extends the life of the road at a fraction of the cost by sealing off moisture, preventing oxidation and restoring the wearing surface of the road. Micro-surfacing is applied in dry, moderate to warm weather conditions – so please be prepared for project delays if we have wet weather. The process uses a large steam-roller like truck that pours the material on the street and workers spread the material across the roadway. 7-10 days before the work begins, residents and merchants will receive a notice and 72 hours prior crews will place “no-parking” signs on the affected block. Streets that are being treated will be closed to all trafc on the indicated dates, except for emergency vehicles.

The Garden Project's mission is to empower young adults through environmentally based job training and life skills programming, while transforming the urban environment. Apprentices learn organic horti-culture and landscaping skills working on the streets of San Francisco, in the Crystal Springs Watershed, and at the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.
