What kind of qualifying criteria does a city street have to meet to be covered by the city’s policy?
Requests for traffic calming measures will be considered if all of the following criteria are met:
  • Local Streets
    • Posted speed limit does not exceed 25 miles per hour.
    • Street must be zoned primarily as residential use.
    • A minimum rate of residential development of 15 dwellings fronting the street per 1,000' of roadway.
  • Collector Streets
    • Posted speed limit does not exceed 30 miles per hour.
    • Street does not serve as primary or dedicated access to commercial or industrial sites.
    • A minimum rate of residential development of 10 dwellings fronting the street per 1,000 feet of roadway.
If the conditions are not met, special consideration may be given to those locations where historic districts, school zones or frequent special event traffic warrants management consideration of endorsed traffic calming as a viable solution. If you have any questions, please email the Department of Engineering.
