We understand that traffic congestion, speeding, bad driving, or searching for a parking spot can be the most frustrating part of your day. We are doing our part to reduce congestion, enforce speed limits, encourage better driving, and provide balanced parking options.

Traffic Calming

We have a program in place that allows you to request Traffic Calming Initiatives be considered to help address concerns related to speeding and high traffic volumes on your neighborhood street. View our Neighborhood Traffic Management Program Calming Guidelines document. In order to qualify for the program your street would need to meet one of the following thresholds:

Traffic Criteria Minimum Threshold
85th Percentile Speed Greater than 5 mph over the posted speed limit
Significant Speeding 10% of traffic at or greater than 10 mph over the posted speed
Traffic Composition 10% or greater cut-through traffic (est. only)
Daily Traffic Volume Exceeds 800 vpd on neighborhood streets or 1,500 vpd residential collectors
Crashes Street or intersection averages more than 2 crashes per year over three year time period

If you believe your street qualifies for the Traffic Calming Program please complete and return the application form or fill out the online form. Once we receive your application we will begin collection of data and evaluation of eligibility. Due to the number of requests received the initial data collection and analysis process may take up to six months.


We are committed to providing fair and balanced parking solutions throughout the City. Various parking solutions have been implemented across the City:

  • Overnight parking permission
  • Parking citations
  • City parking lots
  • Curb painting program
  • Stop sign requests
