The Slow Duboce Triangle Study, also called Vision Slow Triangle or Duboce Triangle Vision 2030, was led by the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association and engaged the community in workshops to understand the visions for the future of the Duboce Triangle neighborhood. 

The idea for Slow Duboce Triangle originated during the COVID-19 pandemic as traffic patterns changed and Slow Streets were implemented in San Francisco. DTNA proposed the idea to explore the concept of a Slow Duboce Triangle and in Fall 2021 worked with student groups at UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design to research three topics: 

  • Walkability and mobility
  • Sustainability, and 
  • Activation. 

The research formed the basis for implementing improvements to the public realm and to continue the conversation and community engagement about a Slow Duboce Triangle. In February 2022, DTNA Board Members, Transportation Authority Board Chair Rafael Mandelman (District 8), San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency staff, and San Francisco Planning Department staff toured the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood to discuss the research findings and implementation of recommendations from the student work. 

At the request of Chair Mandelman to continue this work, DTNA worked with two UC Berkeley students during Summer 2022 to run community workshops and develop concept designs for the Slow Duboce Triangle Study. Community engagement was conducted during Summer 2022 through four community workshops, outreach tabling, online surveys, one-on-one conversations with community members, and feedback from City agencies. 

The project resulted in two final products:

The research and final products from the Slow Duboce Triangle Study form the basis for the next steps towards implementation. Learn more and get involved by visiting the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association's website.
