Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program: Traffic Safety Meetings
Neighborhood Traffic Operations (NTO), a workgroup within Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is holding neighborhood traffic safety meetings in the community. These meetings are geared toward residents who are interested in working with NTO concerning speeding on their residential street.
The meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. and will conclude at 7:30 p.m.
The meetings will include a power point presentation, with a brief overview of different traffic calming options, what steps a neighborhood must take to be considered for traffic calming, criteria staff use to prioritize projects, and possible funding sources.
Residents will also become familiar with the proper use of radar speed guns.
If residents want to enroll their street in the traffic calming program, a representative from their street must attend one of these meetings.
