Renderings of Castro Street Design on public display
If you are curious about what the SF Planning Department has in store for the Castro Street Design Project, you can check out the renderings of the streetscape at the soon-to-be CVS location at 2278 Market Street (where Trader Joe’s was going to be) near Radio Shack.
As we’ve covered, the Planning Department has been holding town-hall meetings for the past several months, soliciting feedback from the community via surveys to determine what should be included in the new design. The base of the project rests on widening out the sidewalks on either side of Castro between Market and 19th Street. Though the deadline to submit the department’s survey has passed, they are still encouraging folks to email or call (415.575.9066) to share their ideas and opinions on the finer points of the new design such as: crosswalk enhancements, sparkly cement, bulbout locations, tree selection, etc.
The Planning Department has set a tentative date of mid-May for their final town-hall meeting. We’ll let you know the when and where once we find out.
