City officials launched the Slow Streets program. This program places signs and temporary barricades on assigned residential streets to provide improved access to the local community.
With slow streets it still allows local traffic to pass at lower speeds and with this, the community can enjoy various activities. From running, cycling, playing, and many activities the community would like to do. As quarantine rules are lifted sidewalks will be crowded and to ensure the six feet rule slow streets provide an ideal opportunity.
The changes are temporary and allow the community to ease out of quarantine by providing space to ensure social distancing and not limiting activities.
Slow Streets is currently no longer accepting application. We were able to get two applicants to get Slow Streets within Koreatown.
The program is currently looking to create a permanent Slow Street program via bollards and community input on how the streets should made.
