Traffic Calming

The Transportation and Parking Commission oversees the City’s traffic calming program, which aims to encourage safe driving behavior through visual and physical measures.  The measures used in this program, such as pavement markings, speed humps, and speed tables, may reduce travel speeds and traffic volumes on residential streets.  The traffic calming manual describes the process that is used to initiate possible projects.  Recorded traffic data and characteristics of the roadways are used in determining if there is an issue and what device is most appropriate to alleviate the problem.  Please note that narrowing long stretches of roadways, intersection redesign, or any other major reconstruction is not done under this program.

For more information on the program, please view the Traffic Calming Manual.  To initiate the process, please fill out the Traffic Calming Application and mail it to the address listed at the bottom of the form.  The Commission Chair will be in contact and will notify you when it will be discussed at a future meeting.  If you would like to see the status of your application, please check the Traffic Calming Project Status spreadsheet.
