The mission of the Fresno Slow Streets Initiative is to increase opportunities for safe, socially distanced walking and biking, for both essential and recreational travel during the pandemic. Slow Streets typically use temporary, low cost traffic countermeasures, as have been implemented in other communities worldwide during the pandemic.
The Fresno Slow Streets Initiative is sponsored by the City of Fresno Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee Slow Streets Task Force in collaboration with a number of community organizations including the US Green Building Council and Every Neighborhood Partnership, with the support, by unanimous resolution, of the Fresno City Council on June 16, 2020.
The City has released guidelines on Sept 21, 2020 to allow implementation of slow streets projects on local neighborhood streets in neighborhoods requesting them. So far, a neighborhood Slow Street has been proposed for Huntington Blvd in SE Fresno, and a committee formed by the Huntington Home Owners to consider the proposal.
Slow Streets Fresno is currently exploring opportunities at both Huntington Blvd and Audubon Drive.
We are in the process of conducting a community wide survey for Audubon Drive to get feed back from local residents on whether there is support for consideration of additional traffic calming strategies west of Freeway 41.
