San Francisco Public Works crews and San Francisco Police Department officers began clearing streets of tents and their residents throughout the Mission District early Wednesday morning after Mayor Mark Farrell called for the clean-up action in a press conference Monday, when he proclaimed that Proposition Q, the tent-ban law he authored and voters approved in 2016, would be implemented in “a more aggressive way.”
