Slow Streets Neighborhood
At the City Council meeting held this past Monday, the City Council authorized a temporary pilot program to encourage reduced driving on a few streets, while the Shelter-in-Place Order is in effect. The intent of the Slow Streets program is to allow residents to more safely walk and bike with members of their households on already low-traffic streets.

  • Maintains local access to homes and businesses
  • Maintains emergency and delivery access

  • Install barricades and signage at every intersection (only select streets have been identified)
