Money to shine up Fillmore Street

Fillmore Street could see an infusion of up to $800,000 under The City’s SF Shines Façade Improvement Program and The City’s Neighborhood Marketplace Initiative.

On Tuesday, the Redevelopment Agency will vote whether to authorize a three-year agreement with the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development to help revitalize Fillmore Street in the Western Addition.

SF Shines is a citywide program that provides grants and design assistance to property owners and merchants to improve facades, storefronts and signs. The marketplace initiative provides marketing and promotions programs, streetscape enhancement and recommendations for business attraction and retention.

Among the goals, the city would “identify priority façade and tenant improvements, awning and sign upgrade projects, and will create design guidelines to assist the existing small businesses,” according to the agency’s report. “These storefront improvements will help small businesses compete and promote their services productively within the Fillmore Street commercial corridor.
