After successfully piloting a Neighborhood Slow Streets program in the Talbot-Norfolk Triangle in Dorchester’s Codman Square and Stonybrook in Jamaica Plain, the Boston Transportation Department is accepting applications for the next round of its Neighborhood Slow Streets program to improve roadway safety.
North Allston is home to schools, churches, a library, parks, and senior housing. There is also a significant amount of cut-through traffic that too often drives at high speeds through the residential neighborhood. This combination could make it a great candidate for this program. The application process does not include specific recommendations, it is more a general expression of interest and willingness to collaborate with Boston Transportation and Public Works Departments through a series of public meetings.
If you’d like to support this application, please send a letter of support to email@example.com by March 1. You can use this template if you’d like: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZjGde2MFBQ1i6_Cz28f7cBSy4XOXUMV6yMT_XhvT62Q/copy
