***UPDATE***

We are one step closer!

Let's take this ORDINANCE TO THE FINISH LINE as we FIGHT to SAVE our SF SMALL BUSINESSES at the SF Board of Supervisors Hearing on Monday 11/9!

***

The fight continues!

San Francisco Small Businesses need your HELP.

They are barely hanging on! Each day, more and more San Francisco small businesses are forced to close shop and leave behind empty storefronts and the communities they represent.

THE PROBLEM

COVID-19 Shelter in Place Orders forced our small businesses to close for over six months. Although the current City Moratorium on commercial tenant evictions are in place until November 30 2020, it does not specify the terms to provide a reasonable rent repayment program.

We are a City that pride ourselves on our unique and diverse business community. These businesses put their heart and soul into their stores. It is their life. Please help us retain this important and vital aspect of what makes us “The City”.

THE SOLUTION

San Francisco Board of Supervisors Aaron Peskin & Dean Preston introduced an Ordinance providing further protections for small business tenants at the upcoming Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee Meeting on Monday, November 9, 2020.

THIS COMMERCIAL EVICTION MORATORIUM ORDINANCE would:

  1. Provide protection to small businesses, not office tenants or formula retail tenants.

  2. Extend rent deferral to the date of the Governor’s order, currently March 31, 2021, as may be extended by any future order by the Governor.

  3. Provide Options for tenants with less than 10 employees so they would also have the right to terminate the lease upon payment of the sum of (x) any delinquent rent prior to March 2020.

Details: The rent deferred would be based on the size of the tenant:

  • Tenants with less than 10 employees would have 2 years to repay the deferred rent

  • Tenants with more than 10 employees but less than 25 employees would have 18 months to repay the deferred rent

  • Tenants with more than 25 employees but less than 50 employees would have 12 months to repay the deferred rent
