City Council has given the green light to a rainbow crosswalk, but it will be up to city staff to suggest where it should go.
Shelly Shenton from Pride Alberni said she was very happy to see how quickly they were able to fundraise, bringing in more than $2600 through an online fundraising site.
The money will be used to pay for the crosswalk and have money left over for maintainance, so there’s no city money required.
Mayor Mike Ruttan said they hope to approve the final plans after they receive staff recommendations at the next council meeting.
Pride representatives suggested the 4th avenue crosswalk between city hall and the Capitol Theatre would be the best place, and they hope it can be done in advance of Pride Weekend in Alberni on July 22nd and 23rd.
