SAN DIEGO - The Port of San Diego is now taking public input on a proposed neighborhood sign for Barrio Logan.
The sign would be similar to those displayed in Little Italy, Hillcrest and El Cajon, but this one would have a distinct Barrio Logan flavor.

"It's definitely an image for the community and that's what Barrio Logan residents have told us that they've very excited about," said Tanya Castaneda from the Port of San Diego.
The Port is picking up the tab, which is between $125,000 and $300,000 for the sign. It's a goodwill gesture to a neighborhood that sees extra truck traffic from the port.
The sign will span Cesar Chavez Parkway, and the Port Authority believes it's the perfect location since there's new housing in the area as well as a new market under construction.
The three current proposals were inspired by community input the Port has received.
"An architect, Vicky Estrada, took those brainstorming ideas and came up with some renderings," said Castaneda.
The proposals could change after more public input. Port officials said the sign will ultimately reflect the people who live in the neighborhood.
