Approximately $750 million dollars annually will go directly to cities for street maintenance and rehabilitation projects. Cities are being encouraged to promote the positive effects of SB 1 in their communities by issuing press releases, op-eds, and social media posts whenever a project funded by SB 1 begins or ends.
The League of California Cities®
recently updated the SB 1 media toolkit
for cities to use to announce their SB 1 funded projects and ensure that their residents have information about how their city will be investing in their local infrastructure.
This toolkit comprises:
- Talking points;
- Sample ordinance;
- Press release;
- Sample social media posts;
- Sample op-eds; and
- The SB 1 logo.
It is critical that cities demonstrate the benefits these dollars will bring to their communities. These materials are also located on the League’s website
, along with general information on transportation funding.
