Yerba Buena Community Benefit District

We’re a nonprofit dedicated to improving the Yerba Buena neighborhood in downtown San Francisco — the City’s cultural district. Our Clean Team, Community Guides and Bike Patrol Officers help to keep our public spaces clean, welcoming and safe. We promote district businesses and attractions, hold events, and enhance public spaces. We work with our volunteer Board of Directors and committees and as partners with residents, world-class museums, Moscone Convention Center, hotels, and educational institutions to enhance our neighborhood.
