Slow Down Boulevard, Inc. is an independent, non profit (501 c3), community advocacy group, dedicated to creating traffic calming solutions on Boulevard SE between I-20 and McDonough. Our mission is to increase awareness of Boulevard SE's 25 mph speed limit in order to stop the endless speeding of cars and trucks on Boulevard in Grant Park that repeatedly threatens the lives of pedestrians, cyclists, pets, and other drivers and to make our neighborhood safe for all who live here or pass through.
Our initial aim is to raise funds to purchase multiple flashing "Your Speed Is" signs along Boulevard SE between the CVS and the Beltline. By purchasing one of our "Slow Down" signs you are helping to calm traffic while raising the necessary funds to purchase the permanent flashing signs.
There are also plans in the works for Slow Down Boulevard t-shirts, bumper stickers, and more. If you are interested in these other items, please check back!
Our intention is to work independently but in cooperation with the Grant Park Neighborhood Association, A Safer Boulevard, and the City of Atlanta to make our street safe. As we achieve success, we are open to expanding our efforts in future to our Grant Park neighbors between I-20 and Memorial Dr and then on to our fellow Boulevard friends all the way to Ponce de Leon.
