PHILADELPHIA- City Councilman Brian O’Neill (10th District) announces that the Managing Director’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, & Sustainability is implementing a new 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 January 18, 2019. For application materials or questions about the Neighborhood Slow Zone program, please call or visit one of Councilman O’Neill’s five full-time offices: Rhawnhurst at 7522 Castor Avenue (215-685-0438); Fox Chase at 432 Rhawn Street (215-685-6431); FOP Lodge #5 Headquarters at 11630 Caroline Road (215-437-9167); Bustleton & Bowler above the 7th Police District (215-685-0432); City Hall (215-686-3422).
