SAN DIEGO -- The city of San Diego Thursday unveiled its first gender-neutral restroom inside a public facility.

Councilman Todd Gloria, City Human Rights Commissioner Nicole Murray- Ramirez and Connor Maddocks, of the San Diego LGBT Community Center are scheduled to attend the 2 p.m. unveiling of the restroom in the University Heights library branch on Park Blvd.

The restroom is the first step in the city's compliance with new state law, which requires that all single-user toilet facilities in businesses or public places be made gender-neutral by March 1. The law, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in September, also calls for local officials to inspect such facilities for code compliance.
