SAN FRANCISCO, July 14 (Xinhua) — U.S. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, along with a diverse group of civic, business and community leaders, on Wednesday launched Shine On SF, a new recovery initiative designed to reignite civic pride and improve the conditions of San Francisco’s streets and public spaces.
Shine On SF will build on the care San Franciscans from all walks of life have for their neighborhoods, inspiring a renewed culture of pride across the city and motivating and empowering the next generation of caretakers, the official announcement said.
The initiative is composed of two main parts: creating civic engagement opportunities for San Franciscans to volunteer and directly contribute to creating a cleaner and more cared-for city; and expanding and improving the city’s cleaning and beautification programs through immediate investments and long-term systemic changes. Funding and staff time are being provided by both private and public partners, according to the announcement.
Shine On SF is championed by the Shine On SF Partnership, a new coalition of public and private partners representing more than 40 organizations, together with the City and County of San Francisco.
“San Franciscans care deeply about our city – for its unique beauty, culture, diversity and its neighborhoods,” said Breed. “During this pandemic, we showed what we can do when we come together to protect and care for one another, and we need to carry that spirit forward to care for our city.”
