To assist in promoting social distancing, Glendale has developed a temporary slow streets program to create more opportunities for residents to bicycle and walk. The program will promote social distancing by encouraging drivers to slow down and recognize that there are more pedestrians and cyclists using the right-of-way during this time.

Slow streets are not closed streets. Automobile traffic can still use the street, but motorists are reminded to slow down and be observant for pedestrians and cyclists as they practice social distancing.

How to make your street a Slow Street?

  1. Identify the block and street you wish to make a Slow Street
  2. Submit a sponsor application
  3. Submit your application to the City at

The City will evaluate your proposed street and will deploy the necessary signage if approved.

Please contact Bradley Calvert, Assistant Director of Community Development if you have any questions about the Slow Streets Program.
