Check the status of your Legacy Business Registry application

We accept applications year-round.

We are currently prioritizing the review order of applications from businesses located in Bayview, Excelsior, Inner and Outer Sunset, Portola, Visitation Valley, and other neighborhoods where we don't have as many registered Legacy Businesses. We will review all other applications in the order that we get them.

We will contact you by email when we begin reviewing your application materials.

After you submit your application, we review it and help edit it. We process applications in groups of 5-10.

Then we send it to two commissions for approval:

  1. Historic Preservation Commission (HPC)
  2. Small Business Commission (SBC)

From the time you apply, it can take a few months for approval.

Applications being processed

These applications were recommended by HPC on May 17, 2023, and will be heard by the SBC on June 26, 2023:

  1. Simple Pleasures Cafe
  2. South Beach Yacht Club
  3. Swensen's
