Slow Triangle Initiative

What is Slow Triangle?

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. 

How does it 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.
