Castro Street Makeover
One of San Francisco’s well-known and iconic streets, Castro Street will be redesigned to help accommodate the thousands of residents and visitors who use the street daily.
The City, along with the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefits District, Merchants of Upper Market and Castro, and the Castro/Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association invites all interested parties to attend the project’s first workshop scheduled for Wednesday, January 23, 2013 from 6-8 pm at the Eureka Valley Recreation Center on 100 Collingwood Street.

>> Workshop details
Staff will present a preliminary design, and attendees will have the opportunity to provide comments.
The project focuses on the busiest part of Castro Street, the two blocks between Market and 19th Streets, which is also a major transit hub for the Castro muni metro subway station, the F-Line historic streetcar turnaround, in addition to a number of transit lines.
As part of the project, the City will look at widening sidewalks, improving intersection safety, adding street trees, landscaping, lighting, and other streetscape amenities. Funding for the planning and construction of this project will be allocated from the 2011 Road Repaving and Streets Safety Bond.
The second and final workshop will take place in February 2013, and the conceptual design is scheduled to be completed in April.
