The San Leandro Improvement Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that’s run by a board consisting of property owners, residents, community members and businesses. The SLIA Board of Directors and sub-committees deliberate and advocate on initiatives designed to improve the Downtown San Leandro experience comprehensively; including issues ranging from sidewalk cleanliness, public-safety coordination, district promotion as well as event programming, and public space development. A flourishing community takes an active community, and the SLIA looks to empower all local stakeholders to contribute to the revitalization of our Downtown community cooperatively.
The SLIA collaborates with other institutions and individuals to preserve the historical nature of downtown sites while also working to engage the community in discovering San Leandro’s unique historical past.
The association is actively facilitating a wide array of local projects designed around its constituents best interest, taking on initiatives ranging from enhancing existing public spaces to district traffic calming—all in an effort to create a vibrant, safe and beautiful downtown destination.
The San Leandro Improvement Association works daily to maintain our downtown public sidewalks and plazas with a dedicated maintenance staff working seven days-a-week to keep downtown clean and beautiful for the community to enjoy.
