PHILADELPHIA- City Councilmember Brian O’Neill (10th District) announces that the Managing Director’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, & Sustainability is once again accepting applications for the Vision Zero “Neighborhood Slow Zone” traffic calming program. The program invites neighbors to apply for traffic calming in an entire zone of residential streets. The city will work together with successful applicants to bring traffic calming to the designated “Slow Zone”. Within selected Slow Zones, the program will work to: develop a plan for traffic calming that responds to safety issues, lower speed limits to 20MPH, install traffic calming such as speed cushions.
People and organizations who want to do something to control speeding on residential streets are encouraged to apply. Applications are due by February 15, 2023.
Councilmember O’Neill has four Neighborhood Offices in the Northeast to serve you.
