Does the street maintenance sales and use tax raise my property taxes?

No, the street maintenance tax is a sales and use tax, not a property tax.  It is levied on qualifying purchases within the city limits.  Therefore, visitors, who do not pay property taxes to the city but utilize city streets, contribute to their maintenance and repair costs when they make taxable purchases within the city.
