Presidio Slow Streets

What are Presidio Slow Streets?

Parks are vital to our health and well-being. The Presidio Trust implemented the Presidio Slow Streets program in 2020 to provide additional space for recreation during the COVID pandemic and to create more opportunities for visitors to enjoy the Presidio. Throughout the program, we’ve listened to the community, collected usage data, and adapted the roadways to current needs.

Presidio Slow Streets currently include two types of roadways:

  • Recreation Zone (Red) – Vehicles are not permitted.
  • Slow Street Zone (Yellow) – Vehicle access is limited to residents, tenants, deliveries, and emergency vehicles.

Seeking Public Feedback on Presidio Slow Streets – Tell Us What You Think!

The Presidio Slow Streets program has proven popular, and now we’re exploring what aspects of it to formalize through signage, traffic barricades, and traffic calming for the long-term benefit of park visitors. To do this, we want to hear what you like and what we can improve. There are two ways to provide feedback in November:

  1. ONLINE: Make comments using our interactive online map​ through November 30, 2021.
  2. IN PERSON: Talk with us in-person on Saturday, November 13, 2021, between 10 AM and 2 PM. We’ll be on the Ecology Trail at the intersection of Arguello Boulevard and West Pacific Avenue. View the location on a map.

We’ll then use public comments and the usage data we’ve collected to develop concept plans for the Presidio Slow Streets network. We’ll share the concepts with the public in February 2022 and again invite public comment. In summer 2022, we’ll make final decisions on the Presidio Slow Streets program.
