Neighborhood Crossroads Program

Cross roads

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.

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.

We Want it! How do We Apply?
