Over the past sixty years, the Council has distinguished itself by drawing together the disparate merchants associations in the neighborhood commercial districts of the City. Together, they have advocated for street lighting, traffic control, parking, and legislation to improve the business climate in the City.

Our members represent a variety of local businesses including an eclectic mix of food and drink, salons, spas, healers, shopping, schools, business services, entertainment and more.

Our Mission is to protect, preserve, and promote small businesses in San Francisco.
