Community invited to Feb. 21 Neighborhood Traffic Mitigation Plan Meeting
The City of Boulder invites the community to a Feb. 21 meeting to discuss an update to the Neighborhood Traffic Mitigation Program (NTMP):
- Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017
- 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
- First Presbyterian Church, Westminster Room (1820 15th St.)
Through a series of table discussion activities at the Feb. 21 event, participants will share ideas and concerns about how a new NTMP will work. The feedback generated by discussion of various community perspectives will be used to develop staff recommendations for council.
The NTMP designs and implements education and enforcement to slow speeding traffic on residential streets. When the city created the NTMP in the early 1990s, the program also included a variety of engineering treatments; however, funding for these and for program management were eliminated during the economic downtown in the early 2000s.
In October 2016, the City Council directed city staff and the Transportation Advisory Board to provide options for restoring the engineering treatments to the Neighborhood Traffic Mitigation Program for consideration in the 2018 budget. In response, a program development process will take place this February through May 2017, and the Feb. 21 event is an opportunity for the community to provide input.
Additional information will be available on the city’s NTMP webpage as the project develops: https://bouldercolorado.gov/transportation/neighborhood-traffic-mitigation-program.
