A collaboration between two organizations may bring a new splash of color to NoPa. The North of the Panhandle Neighborhood Association (NOPNA) and pedestrian advocacy group Walk SF are putting out feelers for an "intersection mural" to be permanently painted at one of the neighborhood's intersections, brightening up the streets.

Walk SF describes intersection murals as "a community-building tool—murals are generally designed by the neighborhood, and represent the local community." They're also a proven traffic-calming tool. San Francisco currently doesn't have any intersection murals on its streets, but Walk SF is working with various neighborhood groups and the city to get some started.

11 intersections are being considered for the mural, and NOPNA is looking for input. Fill out this survey to cast your vote; we'll let you know which intersection is chosen.
