San Francisco’s property based improvement districts (PBIDs) also known as BIDs, CBDs GBDs and TIDs improve public space throughout the City.
BID - Business Improvement District
CBD - Community Benefit District
GBD - Green Benefit District
TID - Tourism Improvement District
Per State law*, the City does not maintain sidewalks or remove graffiti on private property; it is the responsibility of the fronting Property Owner. This is why improvement districts are so important for San Francisco neighborhoods. By forming an improvement district, communities can pool property owner contributions to collectively identify, procure, manage and pay for improvement programs specific to an area.
