    San Francisco leaders are revising their plans for the upcoming Pride Parade.

    A meeting held Wednesday was attended by nearly 50 people representing businesses, most in the city's Castro District, and discussed safety during the celebrations.

    Steve Porter, manager at Harvey's Restaurant, said he certainly feels better coming out of the meeting and that his concerns were addressed.

    Safety concerns have been really high since the mass shooting in Orlando.

    Though police say there is no known threat in the area, businesses and officers are stepping up their safety measures.

    Police will also have additional resources on hand during Pride celebrations, set for June 25-26.
