Land Use Initiatives

The Land Use Committee meets every Third Wednesday of the month in the Gazebo Room (Plaza level) of the CPMC Davies medical campus (above the Emergency Department entrance). All are welcome, though only DTNA members in good standing can vote on formal decisions.

SF Housing Element Rezoning 

San Francisco is currently undergoing a rezoning as part of the Housing Element of the SF General Plan. The rezoning must be completed by January 2026 in order to comply with state mandates, and must have a viable and data-driven proposal to add 36,000 new units across the city by 2031 through rezoning (the city had 412,000 housing units as of July 2021).  An Autumn 2023 zoning proposal emphasized the development along high-density corridors; as of May 2024 we are waiting for an updated proposal from the Planning Department to reflect new guidance from Mayor Breed to emphasize development of 6-to-8-story buildings.

Zoning-related resources:

Maximizing use of Commercial space

In order to support a vibrant and walkable local neighborhood, we want to reduce commercial vacancies along the triangle. Every neighbor can help fight blight by taking personal action to report vacant storefronts:

We work with the Castro Merchants' Association and the Castro Community Benefit District to support a thriving ecosystem for local businesses which contribute to the vitality of the neighborhood.  See the "I'm Available!" program of the Castro CBD for more details on storefront opportunities.

Guiding New Development

The DTNA acts as a liaison between the community and city government in supporting new developments that will strengthen the neighborhood as a vibrant and walkable place at the heart of the city.  If you have development plans, or want to provide feedback on a proposed development, please reach out to us.

Activating Public Spaces

Our built landscape includes important public resources:

Noe & Market Commons Activations

Duboce Triangle is home to the Noe & Market Commons, a space at the south end of the Noe Slow Street which is frequently used for community events:

  • Seasonal community events including the Easter Eggstravaganza, Family Pride, Halloween, and Winter Wonderland events
  • Monthly Castro Art Mart (First Sunday of each month, 11AM-5PM)
  • Weekly Farmers' Market (Wednesdays April-November, 3-7PM)

Bulbout Plaza Activations

Noe St and Sanchez Street feature plazas at many of the street corners, which were designed as gathering spots for neighbors.  We are interested in ways to highlight and activate these unique features of our neighborhoods.

Parks and Recreation

We work with the Friends of Duboce Park to handle any issues with Duboce Park, and with Parks And Rec to address problems with Corona Heights Park. We want to ensure that these neighborhood gems are accessible and enjoyed by all neighbors.
