The goal of the County’s Policy on Traffic Calming is to provide a structured process to apply traffic calming measures, where appropriate, to improve neighborhood livability by reducing the negative impacts of motor vehicles on neighborhood streets.
The objectives are:
➢ Promote conditions that provide safe neighborhoods for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and residents while maintaining access and services.
➢ Improve neighborhood livability by encouraging adherence to the speed limit.
➢ Foster a collaborative working relationship between neighborhood residents and County staff in the development of traffic calming measures.
➢ Integrate education, enforcement, and engineering, the three “E’s” of traffic calming.
➢ Efficiently use public resources based on need.
➢ Periodically evaluate the policy to ensure the goals are being met.
