A number of small businesses in San Francisco’s Excelsior District will soon receive a facelift as part of a city storefront beautification program, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s office announced.

Approximately 20 Mission Street businesses will be painted, their signs and awnings will be replaced and graffiti will be removed, among other improvements.

The project is funded through the Office of Economic and Workforce Development’s “SF Shines” facade improvement program, Lee’s office said.

The office has worked with the Excelsior Action Group on multiple beautification projects, including plating projects at Mission Street and Geneva Avenue and Mission Street and Persia Avenue.
