The YBCBD is proud to partner with the community working to elevate the quality of life in the neighborhood to even greater heights. Our services focus on creating a cleaner, safer and more enjoyable district. YBCBD services are in addition to City cleaning, safety and marketing services. See Reports for cleaning schedules.

Clean Team
Our team sweeps and steam-cleans sidewalks, removes graffiti, picks up litter, and responds to immediate neighborhood cleaning needs every day 6 a.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Community Guides
Our Guides help everyone in the district and are our eyes on the street— directing visitors to local businesses, contacting our dispatcher to have areas cleaned, reporting safety issues, and helping those in need — every day 6 a.m. – midnight.
SFPD Bike Patrol Officer
On top of existing police services, the YBCBD funds an SFPD bike patrol officer to keep us safer – 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are also developing pedestrian safety and traffic enforcements initiatives to make it safer for everyone to traverse the neighborhood.
Social Service Specialist
This new specialist connects people living on district streets to available services as part of a one-year pilot program.
Streetscape Improvements
We fund streetscape programs – large and small — to improve our public spaces with artful bike racks, seating, alley and crosswalk designs, and public art plans. For more information on these projects, please download our Yerba Buena Street Life Plan.
Marketing & Events
We promote Yerba Buena with websites, events, social media, street banners, and more to keep our economic engine humming.
Community Benefit Fund (CBF)
We give grants to neighborhood nonprofits that support family programs, public art projects and cultural exhibits, and public safety. We are now accepting grant proposals for our August deadline. To download the applications, click here.
