Mid-Market Prominent in New Budget

New, 2 comments

Sure, Newsom's new $6.48 billion budget includes layoffs and cuts galore, aimed at squeezing the city's biggest budget deficit ever. Newsom says "there are not grand ideas" but it seems downtown is getting a little special attention. The budget specifically includes funds earmarked for repaving Market Street, as well as to grow arts programs and police presence in the area. He even announced the budget on Mid-Market, at the Luggage Store gallery. Is Mid-Market the neighborhood of 2009 and 2010? Well, sure, if it takes this long to get things fixed. [SF Appeal]
