The HBA offers discount services for its members.

Though most services are free, the HBA does provide some services for a fee. These services are heavily discounted and are provided to members at cost.

 

Featured service: Security subscription

The HBA has an on call security patrol in the core of Hillcrest (Hillcrest MAD) from 4am to 4pm every day to assist with issues such as individuals who are causing trouble in the neighborhood, individuals who are panhandling, or those that are blocking sidewalk access.  Members that are outside of this area, or want their alleys patrolled, are able to apply for security patrol services on a subscription basis. The cost for subscription services is roughly equal to the cost of services within the Hillcrest MAD and is $75 per month for a 50’ storefront. Discounts for multiple storefronts are available.

Available services

Steam cleaning

The HBA currently steam cleans the core of Hillcrest on a monthly basis. Members in this area fall within the Hillcrest Maintenance Assessment District (Hillcrest M.A.D.).  Members that are outside of this area are able to apply for sidewalk pressure washing services on a subscription basis. The cost for subscription services is roughly equal to the cost of services within the Hillcrest MAD and is $75 per month for a 50’ storefront. Discounts for multiple storefronts are available.

Storefront Improvement Program

The City of San Diego offers grants to neighborhood businesses to renovate their storefronts. This is a rare matching grant program that you don’t have to repay. The match is better if multiple storefronts are included.

Security and steam cleaning in the MAD

Your property owner may have already paid for your subscription to the security and steam cleaning. If your business is within the area of the map shown below, you should be already receiving services.

Permits for your sidewalk signs and cafes

The HBA provides permits for sidewalk cafes, business “A” signs, and sidewalk furnishings.  This service is provided so businesses don’t have to participate in the City’s costly permitting program. The cost of the program is $52 a year.
