The BID is receiving calls regarding the abrupt scaling back of the City’s encampment and sidewalk cleanups. The cleanups returned in September after an 18-month absence due to Covid. They were curtailed in October. Details regarding why are not entirely clear. The crews still perform their 14-day schedule, but do only spot-cleaning rather than the more intensive (and necessary!) sidewalk disinfection. The BID is doing all it can to persuade the City to restart the comprehensive cleanups.
