Castro Rainbow crosswalk designs released, go vote!
The Castro Community Benefit District has released their survey showing 4 design ideas for new crosswalks for the upcoming Castro Streetscape Improvement Project that will begin construction end of February / beginning of March.
They are asking for community members to vote on their favorite design and also the location for the decorative crosswalks. Option A (shown above) has 4 different variations depending on how you like your rainbow stripes. Option B is inspired by the Castro Theatre foyer paving. Option C is inspired by rainbow handkerchiefs. Option D is an abstract pattern inspired by the overhead catenary wires. It also looks like a decorative crosswalk at Market and Castro has been nixed and the CBD is asking folks to vote to have the four decorative crosswalks placed either 2 each at Castro and 18th and Castro and 19th or all four at Castro and 18th.
If you’d like to vote in person and see larger renderings, the CBD and the Planning Department will also be seeking the public’s input on the final design and locations in a survey they will be conducting at Jane Warner Plaza this Sunday, February 23rd, from 1-4PM.
Go vote on your favorite here. For people not thrilled with the designs, be warned, I didn’t see an option for “NONE!!!”
