One exception to the City's position is crosswalks with school crossing guards. In this case they do permit painted lines and signs (without a stop sign or traffic light), but presumably this is because crossing guards carry their own little stop signs and so these are considered to be de facto signalized crosswalks, at least when the crossing guard is there.

I suspect this is the case for the last photo, which is signed for a school crosswalk, not a general pedestrian crosswalk.

Maybe we should just equip intersections with crossing guard stop signs, that pedestrians can use themselves when they want to cross the street! There could be sign holders on each side of the street...
