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.
Our team sweeps and steam-cleans sidewalks, removes graffiti, picks up litter, and responds to immediate neighborhood cleaning needs Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 8:00 p.m, Saturday & Sunday, 9:00am – 8:00pm.
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 Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 8:00pm, Saturday & Sunday, 9:00am – 8:00pm.
SFPD Bike Patrol Officer
On top of existing police services, the YBCBD funds an SFPD bike patrol officer to keep us safer – 14 hours a day Monday – Friday and 12 hours a day Saturday & Sunday. We are also developing pedestrian safety and traffic enforcements initiatives to make it safer for everyone to traverse the neighborhood.
