SF Planning Department: Castro Street Design Workshop #1

From SF-Planning:

The City of San Francisco in coordination with the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefits District, the Merchants of Upper Market and Castro, and the Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association invite you to the first CASTRO STREET DESIGN WORKSHOP.Please join us to discuss the future of Castro Street from Market Street to 19th Street.

In 2011, San Francisco voters passed the Road Repaving and Streets Safety Bond. With the support of Supervisor Scott Wiener, funds from this bond have been allocated toward the design and construction of Castro Street improvements.

We want to hear your ideas on ways to improve and beautify this important neighborhood street. At this workshop there will be a brief presentation of a preliminary design concept, followed by an opportunity to provide feedback.

Lane reconfiguration on Castro Street north of Market Street will be considered, if necessary. The proposed study area is outlined in red below.
