Neighborhood Street Safety Program
The Neighborhood Street Safety Program website and application process is now live! SBNA will be actively working with the city and the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance on this program to make city streets safer.
What is the Program?
This Neighborhood Street Safety Program (NSSP) is a new program for small-scale, local, residential street projects to address pedestrian and bicycle safety, safe routes to school, speeding, intersection control and crossings, and other local street traffic safety related issues.

- More than 3 blocks long (approx. 1800 ft.),
- Local street intersections with a collector or arterial street, or
