Mayor proposes new web feature that will keep citizens updated on hundreds of projects

San Diegans will be able to track the status of city infrastructure projects with a simple click of the keyboard if the City Council adopts a series of mayoral reforms, Mayor Jerry Sanders announced Monday.

Under the mayor’s proposal, the city’s web page will allow the public to track the progress of more than 950 active infrastructure projects such as street repairs, power-line undergrounding and water-main replacements. This new feature would be added to the web site in May and would also include information about the cost and schedule of each project.

“One of my biggest priorities is making sure we work as efficiently and transparently as possible when performing these vital upgrades of the city’s infrastructure,” the mayor said. “By adopting my reform package, the City Council will go a long way towards accomplishing this goal.”

The Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the mayor’s proposal, which also includes a series of reforms designed to streamline the process of bidding out and completing these infrastructure projects.

Last July, the Mayor’s Office instituted other reforms that enabled the bidding process to move twice as quickly. Under those reforms, the city hired a contracts program manager and reorganized city staff under the Public Works Department, among other things.
