The Planning Department, MTA, DPW, and Supervisor Scott Wiener have announced the launch of the Castro Street Design Project. With a goal of creating a "transit-first and pedestrian-friendly city," the work will focus on the busiest part of Castro Street between Market and 19th streets, and include ideas like widening sidewalks, improving intersection safety, adding street trees, landscaping, and lighting. If everything stays on schedule, the conceptual designs should be finalized by April, with construction following soon after. If you want to get in on the planning process (and we know you do), the project's first workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, January 23 at 6pm at the Eureka Valley Recreation Center.
