Art or Not?

GraffitiIs graffiti a problem in your neighborhood? You can form a Community Benefit District with your neighbors to have regularly scheduled street cleaning, pressure washing, and graffiti abatement. This will reduce the wait time to complete the job and keep your home looking in a first class condition.

What is a Community Benefit District (CBD)?  This is a program that strives to improve the overall quality of life in targeted districts and neighborhoods through a partnership between the City and local communities. Once an area has voted to establish a CBD, local property owners are levied a special assessment to fund improvements to their neighborhood. The funds are administered by a non-profit organization established by the neighborhood.

Leaving their mark: After implementing daily sweeping, street cleaning and sidewalk maintenance services, the Noe Valley CBD has seen a 77% decrease in graffiti activity.

Current CBD's in San Francisco: Ocean Avenue, Civic Center, Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, Tenderloin/North, Castro/Upper Market, Fillmore, Noe Valley, Central Market, Tourism Improvement District, Yerba Buena and Mission Miracle Mile.
