The City of Edmonds is inviting citizens to submit requests for projects that could be funded through its 2020 Traffic Calming Program. The city has a budget of $18,000 to address speeding concerns and reduce cut-through traffic on streets where a problem can be documented.
The program consists of a three-phase process: (1) petition and review for qualification; (2) education/enforcement; and (3) possible installation of traffic calming devices.
For a location to be considered in the 2020 Traffic Calming Program, applicants must submit a Citizen Action Request and Neighborhood Petition Form to the city. Both forms can be found here. The petition must have supporting signatures from at least eight different households within the affected neighborhood.
City staff will evaluate each petition and determine if it qualifies for the Traffic Calming Program. All projects that qualify will be prioritized and pursued based on available funding.
In past years, the program has funded the installation of speed radar feedback signs, signing and pavement marking. Alternative solutions may be considered depending on location and the traffic concern.
For your street to be considered for the program, please submit the forms by Feb. 14, 2020 to Transportation Engineer Bertrand Hauss, either by email at email@example.com or mail to Edmonds City Hall (Attn: Engineering Division), 121 5th Ave. N. Edmonds, WA 98020.
