The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) addresses traffic related problems in residential neighborhoods, including excessive vehicular speed and cut-through traffic. The NTMP implements "traffic calming" measures, such as speed cushions, traffic circles, median islands, curb extensions, diversion techniques, etc. aimed at enhancing safety for pedestrians and cyclists. Applications for the NTMP may be made by one or more residents/property owners and are reviewed by the department to determine eligibility. Final plans require City Council approval. There's a long list of NTMP applications; NTMP staff will contact you as soon as they are able to begin working on your application.
