Mount Hope / Canterbury
Neighborhood Slow Streets is a new approach to traffic calming requests in Boston. We're focused on street designs that self-enforce slower speeds and safer behaviors. Through this program, we aim to:
- reduce the number and severity of crashes on residential streets
- lessen the impacts of traffic, and
- add to the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
Mount Hope / Canterbury is one of five communities that was selected to join the program in 2017.
On July 19, we met with residents from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Home for Little Wanderers on American Legion. We shared:
- information about Vision Zero, the Neighborhood Slow Streets program
- data that we've collected in the Mount Hope / Canterbury zone, and
- some concept designs for review and discussion.
We've provided the presentation for your review. Use the form that's linked below to give us your input. The form will be open through August 15, 2018.
We joined community members for a neighborhood walk on Wednesday, October 4, at 4:30 p.m. We started at Walk Hill Street and Paine Street. What we learned from the walk will supplement information:
- received in the application
- reported through the Vision Zero Safety Concerns map, and
- collected through speed and volume studies.
Neighbors were welcome to join all or some of the walk. The walk was not the only time or place that neighbors can provide input on the Neighborhood Slow Streets project. Neighbors can also share their concerns on the Vision Zero Safety Concerns map or at future public meetings about the project.
*All streets that we will consider for changes are marked as "zone streets." During the planning process, we may determine that some streets won’t see any changes. We generally will not consider any additional streets that are not marked as "zone streets."
