Calle 24 resolution to be voted on at Board of Supervisors meeting this afternoon

Supervisor David Campos

resolution to designate a portion of 24th Street and surrounding areas in the Mission District as a Latino cultural district will go before the Board of Supervisors today for approval. 

The resolution, proposed by Mayor Ed Lee and cosponsored by Supervisor David Campos, would establish the area bounded by Mission Street, Potrero Avenue, 23rd Street and 25th Street as an official cultural district, called Calle 24 Latino Cultural District.

Designating the area as a cultural district is a move against the gentrification that has swept through the area and displaced longtime Latino businesses and residents. Although the resolution will have no formal regulatory power, it will ease the process for Calle 24 to become zoned as a Special Use District.
Such zoning, currently in place in Chinatown, North Beach and Japantown, allows residents to mark locations as having cultural or historic significance. The Planning Department weighs these designations when considering future development in the area. 

The Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the Calle 24 proposal this afternoon.
