Cleaner streets are healthier and safer streets. The TLCBD seeks above all to create a safer, more vibrant Tenderloin by keeping its 29 blocks clean.

Through a partnership with SF Clean City, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cleaning and beautifying the city of San Francisco, the TLCBD has developed a comprehensive set of cleaning and urban maintenance services that continue to benefit the neighborhood. Services are applied to all property frontages within the District out to 8 feet from each frontage.

Systematic services include:

  • Twice daily sweeping
  • Monthly steam cleaning
  • Twice monthly sidewalk scrubbing
  • Graffiti and hazardous waste removal
  • ‘Hot-spot’ supplemental steam cleanings

While making our streets more beautiful, SF Clean City programs provide transitional employment to number of men and women annually. This employment is a bridge for individuals to rejoin the workforce and all program participants receive employment readiness support and job training.

The City of San Francisco owes much of its global appeal to the unique character of its neighborhood commercial districts. San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development’s (OEWD) ‘Neighborhood Economic Development Division’ is responsible for the ongoing support and improvement of the City’s many neighborhood commercial districts. The overall goals of the division are to create cleaner, safer and more vibrant neighborhoods in order to increase the quality of life for the City’s residents and workers; and to create economic opportunities for residents of the City’s low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.


The Invest in Neighborhoods Initiative a program of OEWD is one of the 17 points of Mayor Lee’s plan for jobs and economic opportunity and provides focused, customized assistance to meet the specific needs of San Francisco’s neighborhood commercial corridors. The TLCBD partners with OEWD to realize unique and focused projects that enhance and beautify areas within the District.

Community Benefit Districts (CBDs) and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are an effective tool for community district revitalization and economic development used in many California cities and throughout the country.
All CBDs and BIDs in San Francisco are members of the CBD/BID Consortium which meets every other month to share resources and discuss challenges, opportunities and successes pertaining to operations and services provided to individual districts throughout the city. The Consortium offers a unique opportunity to leverage ideas and resources from each organization. [/tab]
