News & Highlights

OEWD Releases State-of-retail Report for San Francisco

1.jpg

Vacant San Francisco storefronts may paint a dire picture, but new research suggests the city’s retail market is simply at a crossroads—not at the edge of a cliff. The Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) released a state-of-retail report analyzing the impact of ecommerce, sales tax revenue, vacancies, employment and the cost of doing business in the city. The study was in response to landlords making requests to convert vacant retail space into office use, in particular space above street level. The takeaway from the study is that San Francisco is not immune to the massive changes rolling through the national retail industry, and the city needs to adapt to keep vacancies at bay. However, San Francisco has weathered the national retail storm better than other cities across the country. This can be attributed to the region’s strong economy, support for local shopping, robust tourism industry, limited number of regional shopping malls, and diverse neighborhood shopping districts.

Small Business Commission Approves Legacy Status for Five Businesses

Five businesses were unanimously approved by the San Francisco Small Business Commission for the Legacy Business RegistryBabylon Burning, The Lab, The Mindful Body, The Plough and the Stars, and Slim’s. The Registry recognizes longstanding, community-serving businesses as valuable cultural assets to the city.

Babylon Burning: 63 Bluxome Street – A screen printing company that started like many small businesses, with a DIY set-up in a garage. The business was founded in 1980 by Steve Patton and has been owned by Mike Lynch since 2001.

The Lab: 2948 16th Street – A nonprofit organization that provides under-resourced artists and audiences with the space, time and resources to experiment with alternative ways of living and working. The organization was founded in 1984 by art students from San Francisco State University.

The Mindful Body: 2876 California Street – A wellness center which provides health and healing services, including yoga, massage and acupuncture to those in the community that seek mindfulness and healing practices. The business was founded in 1994 by Roy Bergmann.

The Plough and the Stars: 116 Clement Street – An Irish pub which has featured live Irish music and entertainment for over 40 years. Founded in 1975, Bob Heaney ran the businesses until Sean Heaney, a former bar owner from Ireland took over in 1981.

Slim’s: 333 11th Street – A live music nightclub which provides a lively atmosphere, good food and drinks, and artists performing Blues, R&B, Jazz, Alternative, Hip-Hop, Pop and more. The business was founded by legendary R&B musician Boz Scaggs in the SoMa district in 1988.

Construction Training Program Provides Job Opportunities to Disadvantaged Residents

3The Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), and community and labor partners celebrated the expansion of the Mayor’s Gleneagles Academy, a collaborative effort to link to local residents in Visitacion Valley with hands-on job training programs. In January, OEWD’s CityBuild Program launched the newest iteration of Gleneagles Academy training program in Visitacion Valley. The program enrolled 10 participants from programs targeting the most vulnerable populations in the City, including participants at risk of violence, residents of public housing, and recipients of public benefits. The program opens doors to new jobs in the city’s construction industry. “Workforce programs like the Gleneagles Academy are critical to advancing shared prosperity for all San Franciscans,” said Todd Rufo, Director of OEWD. “Breaking down barriers to employment for disadvantaged residents and placing them in union career paths helps build a stronger, more equitable San Francisco.” Read more…


The Accessible Business Entrance Program

4.jpgIs your business a place of public accommodation? If so, your property owner or landlord may need to comply with a new local disability access ordinance called the Accessible Business Entrance Program.

The Accessible Business Entrance Program, established by Ordinance 51-16, requires property owners of buildings with places of public accommodation to make primary entrances accessible to people with disabilities. Places of public accommodation include restaurants, bars, retail stores, dry cleaners, grocery stores, hotels, day care centers, nail salons, gas stations, hair salons, yoga studios, gyms, health spas, hardware stores, medical offices, message establishments and professional offices. (Visit ADA Title III for details about public accommodations.)

Buildings fall into one of four categories ranging from fully accessible to having major barriers to entry. Barriers include one or more steps to entryways, non-compliant door handles and sloping/narrow doorways. In conjunction with a licensed design professional or Certified Access Specialist (CASp), property owners must submit a compliance checklist to Department of Building Inspection (DBI) identifying their building’s category compliance. The first deadline is May 23, 2018 for categories 1 and 2—buildings that are fully compliant or have minor barriers.

Attend an upcoming workshop to learn more:

  • March 30, 12-1pm
  • April 16, 12-1pm

Register here to reserve your spot! Hosted by Department of Building Inspection in partnership with Office of Small Business, SF Planning, SF Public Works, Mayor’s Office on Disability and Access Appeals Commission, this interagency group is working together to conduct outreach and identify streamlined processes for compliance.

For more information
