Indorsing of Amendment for Planning Commission by
Supervisors Marks Another Victory for Civic Clubs
Another great victory for progress
has been won by the improvement
clubs of this city. The board of
supervisors have indorsed the amend
ment to the city charter giving them
pow«r to appoint a city planning com
mission. A campaign will now be
waged for its adoption by the people
at the election on December 10.
The proponents of this measure
maintain that planning is. necessary
for the beautification of the city and
for its systematic growth, and that
every dollar spent for this purpose
should be used so that the improve
ment made will eventually be a part
of a developed scheme of beautifica
The amendment provides that the
board of supervisors shall by ordi
nance create a city planning commis
sion which shall ascertain the cost of
and devise plans for the improvement
•ad beautification of San Francisco
and for that purpose shall conduct in
vestigations and recommend methods,
systems, plans and surveys to the
various departments of the city gov
ernment for the prevention of dupli
-4 ation and waste, the securing of
greater efficiency in municipal man
agement and making adequate pro
vision for the future growth, develop
ment and welfare of San Francisco.
The members of this commission
shall receive no salary or compensa
tion and are not subject to any prohi
bition forbidding officials from holding
more than one office or position.
The board of supervisors are to pre
scribe the number and qualifications
of the members of the commission and
to provide the funds necessary for its
It is planned to have the board of
supervisors provide that membership
on the commission be composed of rep
resentatives of all the departments of
the city government, labor unions and
civic improvement clubs. It is felt
that such a commission composed as
stated will be a great factor in the
development of the city and one that
will do much to promote the get to
gether spirit in the community. Seattle
has such a commission and has found
It a successful institution that has
accomplished much for the advance
ment of the municipality. Denver has
such a commission composed of dele
gates of the labor organizations and
the chamber of commerce. It is held
that the beautification of that city
dates from the organization of the
city planning commission.
The amendment would create a body
of representative citizens, thus keep
ing the city officials in touch with the
people more than they are at the
present time. Such a body would also
tend to develop citizens familiar with
the municipal government who would
in time become experts in the various
activities of the municipal administra
tion. That is something that is sin
cerely to be hoped for, as all students
of municipal government realize that
the lack of experts In American cities
has caused to a great extent the pre- j
vailing inefficient city administrations, j
This amendment If passed by the
people will do much toward giving us
& body of municipal experts such as ta
, f<-'und in the cities of Europe and which
for the better administration
to be found in the old world.
A large body of citizens giving their
time and attention to municipal affairs
can not help but be a benefit to the
entire community, as it will help to
educate the people along these lines.
The proponents of this measure in
tend to have the city employ a sec
retary for the commission that will
devote his entire time to a study, of
San Francisco's municipal problems in
the light of the experience of other
cities of the world, this information
to be placed before the commission
when considering* any municipal prob
lem. There is little fear by those con
nected with the improvement clubs that
the people will not see the advantage
of providing for such a commission
and expect that this amendment will
receive a large and fatorable vote at
the coming election.
The Mission Promotion association is
taking active steps to co-operate in the
movement to secure the best possible
character of pavement for the streets
in the Mission district. The direct
ors of the association participated in
the conference held this week by the
board of public works for the purpose
of discussing the qualities of the vari
es kinds of paving material now be
ing used and of those it is contem
plated to use in the future.
The association has strongly advo
cated vitrified brick pavements in sev
eral sections of the Mission and is
closMy watching the specimen block
this pavement recently laid in Pow
street between Ellis and OFarrell.
The board of public works is ex
perimenting with the latest approved
type of oiled macadam roadway in the
Nineteenth street boulevard, Which bi-
the MfssMon park between Church
and Dolores streets.
A specimen of combination bitumen
and concrete pavement will shortly be
installed in the southerly Mission, as
well as several blocks of carbolated
wooden pavement which have met with
success in other cities. After a
* thorough test has been made of the
different pavements, the association
will request the board of public works
and the board of supervisors to adopt
some definite policy in granting per
mits to contractors for the perform
ance of streetwork under private con- ,
tracts throughout the Mission district.
The unsatisfactory results obtained
on streets where the gutterways have j
been constructed of basalt blocks
grouted ■with cement has placed the
association on record In favor of laying
uniform pavements throughout the city.
as was done on the Mission road south
of Twenty-eighth street, where the
gufterways were constructed of as
phalt on a concrete foundation. The
insanitary character of the basalt block
gutterway is evidenced on numberless
strpets throughout the city, and the
association believes better results can
be obtained if all gutterways are con
structed of the same character of pave
ment that is employed in paving the
adjacent street frontage and that the
repair cost to the city can in this way
be greatly reduced.
The respective merits of basalt and
asphalt pavements will receive a good
t<?st on the northerly approach to the
Mission viaduct between Bosworth
street and Crescent avenue, one side
of Mission street at this point now be
ing in course of construction with a
basalt pavement and the other being
simultaneously paved with asphalt on
a concrete foundation. This course is
being followed on the recommendation
of the city engineer, the grade on Mis
sion street at this point allowing an
asphalt pavement under the provisions
of the paving ordinance now in effect.
The recommendation made by the as
sociation to the board of public works
relative to the arrangement of streets
in newly opened residential tracts has
been adopted by the public works com
missioners. This provides for a thor
ough discussion of the various subdivi
sion maps submitted for the approval
of the board before such maps have
been finally adopted. In this way pro
[ vision can be made for the proper ar
! rans«ment of streets and for the con
veyance to the city of euch lands as
may be needed for parks and play
ground sites and for school and engine
i house purposes. Such procedure will
! also preclude the possibility of allow
ing , cul de sacs in newly opened tracts,
which may at a latter date necessitate
extension for fire protection purposes.
The Central Ellis Street Improve
ment club Is doing all in its power to
hurry the construction of the Fillmore
street tunnel, and to that end passed
the following resolution at a recent
Whereas, we believe the project
ed Fillmore street tunnel will be
of inestimable advantage to the
entire city and county of San
Francisco and particularly to the
Western Addition district for the
reason that traffic to the Harbor
View district is now barred by
reason of the intervening Pacific
Heights and only accessible
by steep and almost prohibitive
grades, and
Whereas, we believe that the
opening of the Panama canal, with
its great commercial possibilities,
will result In Harbor View de
veloping into a great shipping,
manufacturing and commercial
center, and that a great deal of
this traffic will of necessity tra
verse through our district; now
therefore be it
Resolved, that the Central Ellis
Street Improvement club respect
fully petitions the honorable board
of supervisors to so expedite mat
ters that the construction of the .
Fillmore street tunnel will begin
at an early date.
At a special meeting of the Pacific
Heights Improvement club, called to
consider the controversy over the use
of the outer tracks in Market street by
I the United Railroads and the municipal
i Geary street line, the following resolu
tion relative to the matter was unani
mously adopted.
Resolved, by the Pacific Heights
Improvement club, that we protest
to the board of supervisors against
the refusal to permit the Sutter-
Jackson streets cars from running
to the ferry. There is no reason
why the people of this section of
the city should not have a through
route to the ferry, the same as the
people of any outlying district.
Resolved, further, that the board
of supervisors and the mayor be
requested to settle this controversy
by permitting the Sutter-Jackson
streets cars to run to the ferry and
waive the right to transfer at Lar
kln and Kearny streets.
The following petition has been
signed by the property owners in Sut
ter street indorsing the stand taken by
the Pacific Heights Improvement asso
ciation concerning the controversy
over the use of the outer tracks in
Market street:

The North Beach Promotion associa
tion at an executive meeting last night
at "Washington Square hall recom
mended a resolution presented by the
Vlttoria Colonna club, which calls upon
the city authorities to repair and
sweep, at least every Friday, the small
streets and alleys of North Beach. The
indorsed statement Recites that the
children of the district use these places
for play and. therefore, as well as for
other hygienic reasons, they should not
be neglected.
A communication was received from
the board of education, stating that
the latter had sent a letter to the su
pervisors, indorsing the request of the
association for additional lights in
front of the Jean Parker school.
At the solicitation of the Golden Gate
Valley Improvement association, the
school committee of the North Beach
Promotion association was instructed
to co-operate in the movement to se
cure a high school in the northern sec
tion of the city, as the removal of the
Ix>well high school had left the sec
tion without this educational need.
John Condit reported prospects on
the exclusion of the oriental school
from Washington street near Powell
At a recent meeting of the South
Central Improvement association res
olutions were passed unanimously lrir
! dorsing a suggestion made relative
]to the changes in the present sidewalk
' improvement law. At the present time
it is impossible for the city to induce
contractors to bid on this work, as it
is very difficult for the contractor to
collect his money. It is planned to
change this law so that the city will
pay cash to the contractor and then
recoup itself by placing the cost of
the work on the tax bill.
