Castro Street Design Final Open House

Since January the City of San Francisco has worked with the community to develop a new design for Castro Street between Market Street and 19th Street.


The final conceptual design for Castro Street will be unveiled at a Community Open House on May 14. Members of the public are invited to stop by anytime between 7pm and 9pm to view plans and illustrations of the new design. City staff will be on-hand to answer questions and listen to your thoughts on the conceptual design.
The event is co-sponsored by the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefits District, the Merchants of Upper Market and Castro, and the Castro/Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association.
