12 Feb Discover Polk-Cleaner, safer, starting today!
As of 07:00 this morning, 12 February 2019, you will see cleaning and safety crew ambassadors along Polk Street and Van Ness between California Street and Broadway, and along the side streets between Polk and Van Ness, every day between 07:00 and 15:00. For the time being they will be wearing the uniforms of Lower Polk Community Benefit District, with whom we have contracted for important services. Please welcome and greet them, and let them know how delighted we are to have them on board. They will be picking up trash, removing bulky items, cleaning sidewalks, looking out for potential hazards, and assisting as liaisons between street population and city services. Businesses and property owners who wish to have our graffiti abatement specialist remove tags from the ground floors of their buildings must sign an authorization for abatement on private property (click here).
