As part of the analysis for a Neighborhood Traffic Assessment, City transportation staff will conduct various studies such as vehicle volume counts, speed surveys, and review collision patterns. Staff's analysis of the data and existing traffic conditions may qualify a neighborhood for a Traffic Improvement Project. Traffic Improvement Projects require neighborhood-wide support, therefore a petition from the neighborhood in support of a future Traffic Improvement Project is the first step. Once the petition is received, the neighborhood is placed in the queue and is addressed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Once a neighborhood reaches the head of the queue, a neighborhood kick-off meeting will start the project and residents will work with City staff to identify and document the traffic concerns. A Neighborhood Action Team will be formed consisting of 5 to 10 residents to act as representatives of the neighborhood and work with City staff to develop a draft Traffic Improvement Plan.

The draft Traffic Improvement Plan will be voted on by the entire neighborhood prior to being presented to City Council. A vote will be considered successful when a minimum of 51% of the study area’s households complete and return the ballot and 67% of the returned ballots support the plan. If the neighborhood votes in support of the Traffic Improvement Plan, it will then be presented to the City Council. Upon City Council's approval and funding is available, the project will be implemented and monitored.
