The new Discover Polk Community Benefit District became the 15th CBD in the city when it was formed in July. The group will have at its disposal about $600,000 a year to spend on improving cleanliness, marketing, and business retention in an area that stretches for about 14 blocks, bounded by Polk, California, and Broadway Streets and Van Ness Avenue.
“I am incredibly proud of this neighborhood’s three year-long effort to transform how services are delivered to the community,” said Supervisor Aaron Peskin. “Middle Polk is part of a culturally and economically vital corridor in District 3, and I’m confident that the CBD and its leadership will improve the quality of life for everyone within its boundaries.”
The funding is provided by assessments paid by property owners in the region covered by the CBD.
