Slow down! Do you feel like everyone is speeding in your neighborhood? You know, flying down the street doing like 50 MPH. Well, the City of Boston Transportation (BTD) is now accepting applications for 2017 Neighborhood Slow Streets projects. Residents, neighborhood associations, and other community-based organizations are invited to apply to have their neighborhood participate in the Neighborhood Slow Streets. The program works to use “traffic calming” measures to improve roadway safety within a defined residential area. The BTD and the Boston Public Works Department will work with selected applicants to plan and implement Neighborhood Slow Streets projects that meet the specific needs of their communities. Sound good? More information on the Neighborhood Slow Streets program, including applications, are available at www.boston.gov/transportation/neighborhood-slow-streets . If you would like to see our neighborhood to be a part of the slow streets program, kindly sign this petition!
