Neighborhood Crossroads Program
What is It ?
Neighborhood Crossroads is a new program to create neighborhood gathering places; enhance community identity; and calm traffic through intersection installations. These may be placed at low-traffic intersections, selected by Recognized Neighborhood Associations, and approved by the City. Projects may include an intersection painting, a bench, or a variety of other creative installations.
In response to requests from residents, the City is also piloting a program to allow limited use of other right-of-way and City-owned property through the Neighborhood Nooks program.
What is the Benefit?This program encourages people to create a gathering space for their neighborhood, a place for community interaction and celebrations. An added benefit may be to slow down drivers, making the streets safer for everyone.
