Slow Streets LA

Thank you for your interest in the Slow Streets program. The department is incredibly proud of the work we've been able to accomplish, partnering with community members, to deploy more than 50 miles of Slow Streets throughout the City. As health and safety measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the department is assessing its limited resources, and prioritizing critical fixes for existing Slow Streets projects.

We will be in touch with you if we are able to move your application forward.

On May 15, 2020 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.
