Effective Date: March 3, 2008
This policy is intended to provide guidance to citizens and City staff regarding the process to be followed for submitting and reviewing a request for the installation of traffic calming measures on a public street. Traffic calming is the application of traffic engineering and other physical measures designed to control traffic speeds and encourage driving behavior appropriate to the environment. It is not the policy of the City to use traffic calming to deter people from using certain public streets with traffic calming measures installed, but rather is used to ensure that traffic is traveling at a safe speed.
