Stud, Castro Country Club get legacy status

Two iconic LGBT businesses in San Francisco – the Stud bar and the recovery-based Castro Country Club – could get some help after the city’s Small Business Commission granted them legacy business status.

Among other benefits, a legacy business’s landlord may get grant money if he’s willing to enter into a 10-year lease.

The commissioners voted 5-0 Monday, November 28 to support the businesses. Two commissioners were absent.

The legacy business registry is the result of Proposition J, which was approved last November. It defined a legacy business as those that have operated for more than 20 years and that the Small Business Commission has found have significantly contributed to the history or identity of a particular neighborhood or community and would face a significant risk of displacement.
