Hello fellow Oaklanders,
This weekend we launched
Oakland Slow Streets
– city streets closed to through car traffic and open for residents to exercise and practice physical distancing.
We can’t stress this enough: Slow Streets are for distancing, not for gathering. Our sidewalks are too narrow. Our regional park trails are stressed. We need more space for our fitness and health.
As this pilot progresses, we will rely on community feedback to adjust accordingly. We’ll keep residents aware of the next slow streets at
this website here
Remember, those who live on the streets can still drive up to their front door and emergency vehicles and delivery vehicles can still access their streets.
And please continue to follow the CDC recommendations to wear a mask when outside!
