Performance Observation

The Scorecard program rates the cleanliness of New York City’s streets and sidewalks based on regular assessments conducted by a team of service inspectors and raters employed by the Mayor’s Office. For the past 35 years, inspectors have rated a randomly chosen set of blocks throughout the five boroughs to develop monthly cleanliness ratings for all of the City’s 59 community board districts. Besides providing a regular “scorecard” for the citizens of New York City and their representatives, this information is used by the Department of Sanitation to target its street and sidewalk cleanliness resources to focus on the neediest sections of the city.
