Duboce Triangle Vision 2030 (prev Slow Triangle)

SIGN UP TO MAKE IT A REALITY - HERE


VISION SLOW TRIANGLE IS NOW DUBOCE TRIANGLE: VISION 2030

In a 4-month process in 2022, residents, merchants, and friends of Duboce Triangle have provided input on their hopes and visions for the future of the Duboce Triangle neighborhood. 

Noe Slow Street served as an initial provocation for DTNA to launch a series of workshops to understand what our neighborhood really wants. These workshops focused on traffic safety, but our community-led visioning and design process allowed us to understand more broadly what our neighbors care about in the public realm. 

In recognition of this, we decided to rename Vision Slow Triangle now Duboce Triangle: Vision 2030.

Traffic safety and traffic calming will remain a core focus of our efforts, complemented by three other areas including, greening & sustainability, neighborhood identity, and equitable access. 

We are making strides towards implementing what the neighborhood expressed in summer 2022. We need your help to make this a reality. Please sign up to be involved HERE

Please review this presentation and sign up here for areas to champion. We will follow up with a meeting in November.

How can I be involved?

If you'd simply like to stay in the know about Slow Triangle activities, please attend the DTNA General Meetings, review this page and its blog section, or email us at slowtriangle@dtna.org. (yes, we'll update the email!) 


What was the Slow Triangle effort?

Slow Triangle is a study of all the ways people move to and through Duboce Triangle. It started with evaluating the pros and cons of Noe Slow Street and has grown to an overall survey of the neighborhood's public space. With feedback from neighbors, the study seeks to generate ideas and solutions that balance vehicular, pedestrian, and cyclist access. The goal of the study is to make Duboce Triangle a safer, more equitable, and more beautiful place for all. 

Between June and August 2022, DTNA lead a series of community workshops to determine what our neighborhood wants. With the help of 2 interns from UC Berekeley's urban design program and funding from SFCTA and private donors, DTNA has now a set of recommendations on how to implement the community's Vision Slow Triangle.  

The FINAL PRESENTATION is available on the Slow Triangle Blog on this website. If you are running a community organization and are interested in our process, and the learnings we derived from it, please review the SLOW TRIANGLE PLAYBOOK.

How did the process work?

Slow Triangle is an open-to-all, community-led effort. Our activities include community surveys, interviews, workshops, case study research, and design workshops to crystallize problem areas, develop real solutions, and produce outcomes. We need diversity of opinions and debates. We seek input from people who are not or cannot be at the table. 

Over the last two years of community work, we have learned that our community cares most about:

  • Traffic Safety: Pedestrian, bike, vehicular

  • Access: Equitable access for all members of the community

  • Greening: Tree canopy, bulbouts, neighborhood gardens, guerilla gardening 

  • Neighborhood identity: Signage, culture, activation, community building

What is Slow Triangle NOT?

  • An effort to ban all cars from the Duboce Triangle

  • A policy effort or a ballot measure

  • A plan developed by city departments or companies to be rolled out in the neighborhood

Who is behind this effort?

  • The Community: residents and businesses located inside and outside the Duboce Triangle. 
  • Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association to facilitate conversations, process and coordination with city departments.
  • UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design to provide research, thought-leadership and conceptual designs.
  • City Departments & Supervisor Mandelmann's office to provide support and help implementation.

I disagree. What should I do?

Be part of the conversation and join us in incorporating your perspective into a solution. 

I am not a resident of the Duboce Triangle. Can I be part of it?

Yes, please! Many of the decisions in the Triangle have consequences for other parts of the City. Please provide us with your input.
