Beverly Hills Launches Slow Streets Program

In an effort to reduce speeding traffic on neighborhood streets, the city of Beverly Hills launched a temporary “Neighborhood Slow Streets Program.” The initiative hopes to provide a safer use of streets for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic on local residential streets and prevent overcrowding on sidewalks to allow for physical distance.

“As an outdoor enthusiast, I am excited about this program that allows residents to take full advantage of our beautiful streets by connecting with their neighbors while also maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Bob Wunderlich. 

A designated Slow Street will be equipped with signage to discourage speeding and cut-through traffic, allowing residents the chance to use more of the street space for outdoor activities like walking and cycling.

Instead of pre-designating streets for the program, the city is encouraging interested residents to sponsor to nominate their street by filling out an application online at beverlyhills.org/slowstreets. To be eligible, street blocks must be in a residential zone with a 25 MPH speed limit. Major streets and commercially zoned streets are not eligible.

Once the application is approved by the city, the resident sponsor must have support for the program from at least 51 percent of the dwelling units on the block before it can be implemented. 

Slow Streets do not limit access to residents, visitors, delivery vehicles, street sweeping, trash pick-up or emergency vehicles, and all regular parking regulations remain in effect.

To learn more and access the application, visit beverlyhills.org/slowstreets or contact the Public Works Customer Service at 310-285-2467.
