Should funds from the DAO Treasury be allocated to finance a new community-led project addressing issues outlined herein?

Linked Pitch Proposal

Road Modernization


We need to tastefully modernize the roads. Almsot any change would be an improvement.

Problem Statement

The 2018 fake flower planters currently in the middle of DCL roads do not match the overall aesthetic of the majority of our land builds. We need to modernize our aesthetic.

Technical Specification

I leave this to the coders.

Use Cases

People spend a lot of time on roads. I think simple pavement with no plastic looking planters and streetlights that turn on at dusk and off at dawn is all we need to vastly improve.


All your base belong to me (you guys are the experts on building so I took this opportunity to make you lol).

This is such a low priority in my opinion. Roads are a public utility. Their purpose is to get people from one place to another. I agree with @dax in the previous stage of this prop - low poly is the way to go at this stage of development in DCL. The current state of the roads is fine. Why spend DAO funds on this? When we can play music anywhere in-world and have a party in the streets, maybe then we can look at a redesign.

Sure, it’s a thing that can be changed but with so many hungry baby birds crying out for nourishment, let’s not give any DAO funds to a flightless penguin at this time.


Agree! And if we “modernized” roads now, they would probably need to be re-modernized again anyway by the time they actually become useful.

I like the idea of modernizing the roads. Thanks KalebK for your enthusiasm.

I would expect to have a more detailed Tender proposal, particularly on the Technical Specifications. I guess if someone else can do it better, they can escalate a new tender from the original Pitch and then Tenders definitions will compete.

Is this correct @ginoct?

That is correct, multiple Tender proposals can be promoted from a Pitch until a Tender gets passed

As much as I would like to see prettier roads, seems pretty low on the priority list of things that time, money or energy should be spent on. Voting no until the general platform improves.
