Dirtier Streets, Confusion to Ensue

Starting this week, the Department of Public Works will save some money by cleaning the streets every other week instead of every week in certain neighborhoods (including Noe Valley). If you live on one of the streets outlined in blue or yellow above, you can expect confusion about which day you risk a parking ticket (it's the 2nd and 4th week of each month). No change for the streets in red.

The City's grimier neighborhoods will continue to get regular scrubbings. As they get cleaner and we get dirtier, the City will have a more uniform sparkle. Or something like that.

Update (Sep 22): Street signs are being altered as of now.
