The input on a new Barrio Logan community sign the Estrada Land Planning Group got back from the locals during three community meetings last year settled the vision on the sign that will span the Latino Community's street filled with the most green lights, Caesar E. Chavez Parkway. The sign design is moving forward to the city councilmembers who will vote on a permit.
Port commissioners were the last group at a community meeting to size up the sign that will cross the street between Main Street and Newton Avenue, just west of the living apartments at the recently opened at Estrella del Mercado. This year's meeting followed up on the meetings barrio locals and property owners attended last year to give the design the Barrio Logan touch. Commissioners looked over the final design Estrada's architect and the community members designed together.
Work on the project that was scheduled for later this year, in Summer, makes up part of a Port project funded by Trade Corridor Improvement Funds set up for project work by Proposition 1B.
Barrio Logan will hang above cars that drive down the path commercial trucks taking freeway route were taken off in 2007 when the city opened a freeway ramp at 28th Street, and shifted freeway routes to 32nd Street.
The community' name will signal the change from the Tenth Avenue terminal area on the waterfront, near the Blue Line trolley station, to the growing family barrio. The dividing line stands between the Caesar E. Chavez Park added to the community plan for picnics and bicycle trips and the people' park, Chicano Park.
