Traffic Claiming Program

The City has instituted a traffic calming program to help address traffic related concerns of its residents on residential streets. Through this program, staff works with residents to identify traffic problems in their neighborhoods and create a neighborhood traffic plan that consists of solutions that are acceptable and appropriate.
