From May 16-31, 2018, we collected feedback online on this evolved design scheme. Thank you for participating.
Following the short presentation, the participants were invited to explore the poster boards arranged around the auditorium. Each participant could submit their feedback on an prepared comment card. This singular design incorporated the most popular elements of the four design schemes presented in Community Meeting #3 on April 7, 2018. The goal of the activity was to evaluate the design in achieving the four community established criteria: Memorial Experience, Universal Access, Public Health/Safety/Security and Successful Public Space. From this process, Perkins Eastman will incorporate this feedback into this concept design before bringing this design to city agency review.
Open House Comment Cards
Participants were invited to fill out individual comment cards. The input contributed will help guide the architects from Perkins Eastman incorporate feedback into this design and schematics.
Participant 10 Comments transcribed
1. Semi circular roof over Castro Station entrance will become roof for homelss people on rainy nights
2. Balcony above Muni entrance will be homless encampment overnight.
3. Castro has a homelss problem that is some what unique. For example, there are far fewer homelss in Noe Valley / 24th St. Castro has a unique homeless problem worse than other neighrbohoods.*
4. Homless already occupy the notches by the wavy wall on the south side of Market. This design has provided many more confortable, isolated and roofed habitat for homeless.
5. Only thing yo ugo right is the elevator.
*If you believe homelessness is a city wide problem then solve THAT problem first priopr to redesigned the station!!
