20 is Plenty

20 is Plenty Works to Create More Space for Safe Walking and Biking on Residential Streets

On Friday, May 8, 2020, the Tacoma City Council passed Resolution No. 40600 relating to vehicle speeds, social distancing, and safe movement on Tacoma’s streets.


The 20 is Plenty campaign is partnering with Compassionate Tacoma, under the belief that each of us has the ability to make Tacoma a more welcoming, connected, resilient, and vibrant community by listening and serving others with love.


20 is Plenty is working to create more space for safe walking on residential streets, as well as promote walking, biking, and people powered transportation. More than ever, people are out using residential streets differently than they have before. This campaign encourages us to all look out for each other, be a good neighbor, and slow down to 20 miles per hour while driving on residential streets, because 20 is Plenty.

Where Can I Put Them?

  • YES: in a window on your property or in your front yard (clear of sidewalks or public pathways

  • NO: on someone else's property (without their permission), on utility poles, or too close to an intersection or driveway that it blocks visibility (sight distance tip sheet)

20 is Plenty signs should only be placed on residential streets.
