Neighborhood Traffic Management

    Public Works provides traffic calming solutions where appropriate in order to influence driver behavior and create more livable neighborhood streets. We work closely with neighborhood residents to properly identify their concerns, conduct appropriate studies to quantify any problems, and develop strategies to moderate traffic speeds and reduce the number and severity of collisions should they occur. While there are budgetary and public input considerations, it is the goal of Public Works to find ways to address as many issues as feasible each year.
