The fight about replacing the pride banners in the Castro is back to members of the Board of Supervisors.

As first reported by The San Francisco Examiner, the gay-pride banners in the Castro are 10 years old and in need of replacement. The poles on which they hang, however, are designated historic landmarks, which complicates hanging new banners.

The legislation by Supervisor Bevan Dufty — whose district includes the Castro neighborhood — that would allow the banners to be replaced and stay indefinitely is scheduled to be heard by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee on Monday.
