Sign to support Chinatown’s request before March 24 to become a Neighborhood Slow Street Zone at BCNC, 38 Ash Street, Boston, MA 02111 or online at http://ow.ly/KlmA309I57J.

 

The City of Boston will work with Chinatown residents to:

  • Increase city resources devoted to redesigning streets and enforcing safety measures.
  • Design safer pedestrian crosswalks for children and elders to cross.
  • Almost every intersection in the Slow Street Zone will be studied to increase safety.

 

Examples:

  • Increased signage
  • Ensure 20 mph speed limits
  • Wider sidewalks and raised, more visible crosswalks
  • More time to cross
  • Street art to remind drivers we are a community
  • Add bicycle lanes
