About CVIA

Cole Valley Improvement Association (CVIA) 

Our mission is to promote a sense of responsibility and mutual respect throughout the district; preserve the character of its architecture; support the police in law enforcement efforts; encourage neighborhood-serving businesses; and be constructively involved in San Francisco’s governmental process.

CVIA publishes a quarterly newsletter, coordinates the Clean Cole Street project for daily sidewalk cleaning of the commercial corridor of Cole Street, and is involved with a variety of neighborhood issues. The CVIA Board meets monthly at the home of a board member at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of every month. All members of the organization are welcome to attend. Contact us to learn the location.  

CVIA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. CVIA’s boundaries include Hayes Street, Divisadero Street, Clarendon Avenue, and Arguello Boulevard.
