Historic Preservation Commission to receive update on SF’s legacy business program

The Historic Preservation Commission this week is set to receive an update on San Francisco’s legacy business program, which aims to help longtime local businesses remain and thrive in The City.

Specifically, the program gives up to 300 businesses and nonprofits each year one annual grant ($500 per employee, up to 100 employees), while property owners who negotiate a long-term lease (10 years or longer) for their legacy business tenants can then apply for a yearly grant of $4.50 per square foot (up to 5,000 feet).

The update Wednesday on the program will be presented by Planning Department staff, who are expected to include an overview on the number of applications to date, how the application process is working and any issues or areas for improvement along with potential solutions.

The Historic Preservation Commission will meet at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, Room 400.
