The SLOW DOWN Campaign is Back to Raise Awareness  

Slow Down Campaign

The Slow Down campaign has returned to raise driving safety awareness in the City of Batavia and you can join other residents by posting a sign up at your home. For those picking up signs to post, here are guidelines on how far back from the curb the signs should be placed to avoid placing them in the parkways:

- Thirteen feet away from the curb if you have a sidewalk.
- Nineteen (or more) feet away from curb without sidewalk.

You can pick up your signs at the following offices beginning Friday, May 24: 

City of Batavia (upstairs in reception)
Batavia Park District (central offices on Wilson Street)
Batavia School District (Rosalie Jones admin center on Wilson)
Batavia Public Library (at the main checkout desk.)

Let's keep our community safe this summer.

When the campaign ends July 12, please take down your signs. We encourage you to keep them for use year to year.
