Neighborhood shopping corridors get improvement grants 

Mayor Gavin Newsom doled out more than $520,000 in grant money to various commercial districts in The City for capital projects including new murals, graffiti removal signage and landscaping improvements.

The grant money, which is being distributed through the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, is meant to support businesses and stimulate the local economy at a time when San Francisco is facing a roughly 10 percent unemployment rate. Projects were selected through a competitive process.

“San Francisco owes much of its global appeal to the unique character of its neighborhood commercial districts,” Newsom said. “Small businesses in these commercial corridors are the lifeblood of our local economy. These grants will help stimulate the local economy and help ensure that these corridors weather these tough economic times.”
