Traffic Calming Program
The Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) is a procedure to use positive methods of speed tables,
geometry, and/or landscaping to alter the negative effects that traffic flow creates in a residential area. The negative effect most
often occurs when motorists use a local street as a short cut between arterials and by motorists who travel faster than the posted
neighborhood speed limit. This unnecessary neighborhood thru-traffic, by motorists travelling at unsafe speeds, on streets designed
primarily for local access to properties poses safety hazards.
To determine if your residential street qualifies for the program complete the online form,
fill it out, and submit the application. If you have questions, contact Tom Sisco.
