Debating rainbow crosswalk

The District of Peachland is considering installing a rainbow crosswalk.

Council debated a request this week to install the multi-coloured crosswalk at the intersection of Third Street and Beach Avenue.

Installation would be conducted by a professional line painting contractor at a cost of between $1,000 and $1,500.

But, instead of authorizing the work, council asked staff to bring back a report on the rationale behind rainbow crosswalks.

Several communities across the Okanagan have installed the crosswalks over the past number of years.

Rainbow crosswalks are a visible show of inclusivity of LGBTQ individuals in the community.
