Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced a new program allowing local residents to gain access to more space for recreation activities in their neighborhoods, while protecting Angelenos from overcrowding on sidewalks and promoting social distancing.

Slow Streets are for local residents only. These are not intended as gathering areas for the general public.Residents and neighbors using a Slow Street must adhere to the latest health guidelines, as outlined by the Mayor’s Safer at Home order. Gathering of groups, barbequing, playing games that involve physical contact with others, or programming of any kind is prohibited. These streets should be treated like all other recently opened active recreation sites, including beaches and trails.

Local traffic and local parking is still allowed on these streets and emergency evacuation routes are still in order.

To apply for Slow Streets, please organize with your neighbors, complete the application and contact us at Board@SouthwestNC.org.
