SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Mayor London Breed unveiled new streetlighting in the Tenderloin District today, aimed at increasing safety and visibility in the area. 

“Since taking office, I have been out regularly in the Tenderloin talking to residents and merchants about how we can bring meaningful change and improve public safety for people who live and work in the community,” the mayor said in a statement. “The increased lighting we are unveiling today is an important project that residents have asked for, and today we are delivering.”

The lighting was paid for using funding from the $4.25 million allocated for the city’s Cathedral Hill Hospital Agreement. 

A total of 97 streetlights were unveiled today with a goal, the mayor’s office said, to enhance the pedestrian experience in the Tenderloin.
