As part of the JCBD community engagement, we reach out to City departments, local neighborhoods and community organizations to keep Japantown informed of any updates and news that have an impact in our community. We welcome you to attend these community meetings so that you are informed of what is going on in Japantown.
Working hard to keep our community engaged and thriving!

Accessible Building Entrance Program
Have you completed your ABE form yet? The JCBD wants to ensure that you’re on track to be in compliance with the program. The Accessible Business Entrance (ABE) ordinance (no.51-26) applies to all San Francisco businesses with buildings of “public accommodation” to have all primary entrances accessible for people with disabilities.
One of 3 forms (Category Checklist Compliance, Waiver, or Pre-screening/Exclusion) form must be turned into DBI. The due dates are dependent upon which category your building falls under.
