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 be trained in 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. I suggest at least two residents from your street to attend meeting.
