City of Edmonds seeks public input on 2023 traffic calming program

The City of Edmonds is requesting public input on its 2023 traffic calming program, with forms due March 3.

The program has a budget of $33,000 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 2023 traffic calming program, both a citizen action request and neighborhood petition form need to be submitted to the city. The petition form must have supporting signatures from at least eight different households within the neighborhood.

Both forms can be found here.

City staff will evaluate each petition based on a set of criteria and determine if it qualifies for the traffic calming program. Projects deemed qualified 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 this program, submit the forms by March 3 to Bertrand Hauss, transportation engineer, either by email to or mail to:

Edmonds City Hall

  1. I tried last year to get a lighted safety crosswalk signal installed at the intersection of 3rd S and Walnut, and I’ll try again this year. It’s a busy, dangerous intersection.
    I think, however, that $33,000 isn’t going to go very far.
