Neighborhood Streets Program

We help improve quality of life in urban neighborhoods outside of cities through traffic calming measures.

Our Neighborhood Streets Program (NSP) helps improve the quality of life in urban neighborhoods outside cities by reducing speeding and cut-through traffic.

The community is an important part of this process. We help those who live and work in the project area find solutions that work for the neighborhood.

Safety campaigns are one option. They are usually a two-year process and can include:

  • Conducting community meetings to talk about traffic concerns and the Neighborhood Streets process.
  • Selecting  first-year safety measures.
  • Evaluating how well the safety measures worked.
  • Deciding if further safety measures are needed.

The traffic calming process outlines how we determine which roads are eligible for the Neighborhood Streets Program and how we can help.

Request a safety campaign, yard signs or temporary speed radar trailer placement to see what works for your neighborhood.

Neighborhoods concerned about parking can request Parking by Permit. The purpose of the Parking by Permit program is to reduce non-resident, on-street parking congestion in neighborhoods while providing residents with the ability to park on-street near their homes. This program is a way to address quality-of-life issues such as parking infiltration.
