What is a neighborway?
Neighborways are residential streets designed for low volumes and speeds for auto traffic, where children can play, and bicycle and pedestrians are given priority. They are usually one, sometimes two blocks away from major streets and provide extended connections between neighborhoods, schools, squares, and parks.
Neighborways can range from simple and quick treatments such as painted surfaces and wayfinding signage to more expensive things like moving curbs, plantings and public art.
it all together
Portland Oregon is a leader in Neighborways integrated with schools. As our program matures we can do more expensive things that involve landscaping, moving curbs and the like.
