Commercial Vacancy Audit
The Excelsior Action Group is beginning to conduct a 2020 Commercial Vacancy Survey and we are looking for volunteers to help with surveying. The Commercial Vacancy Project is a way to identify buildings that are or appear to be long-standing empty buildings along the Excelsior, Outer Mission and Broad/Randolph commercial corridors. Empty buildings depress the vibrancy and economic health of the community and inviting needed business to operate in the neighborhood is a concern to EAG and its partners. These surveys will help inform EAG of its business support work as well as provide current data on neighborhood vacancies. EAG plans to address these concerns in a written report and a walk with city officials, the police department, and other agencies, calling on them for action.
Each week volunteers will conduct surveys along the Mission Street commercial corridor, Geneva Avenue corridor and the Broad/Randolph corridor and gather data on active and vacant businesses. The goal is to You will gather about 300 Surveys for the whole month of March.
Dates: Fridays March 8, March 15, March 22, March 29.
Time: 12pm-3pm (3 hour commitment)
Location: 35 San Juan Avenue (Excelsior Action Group Office)
