An Updated NTMP
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 (NTMP) for consideration in the 2018 budget. In response, staff is developing a process for updating the program this February through May 2017, and we need your input.
The project has a fast timeline, but is following a deliberate, phased process.
- Working with the community, the city team will document both the city’s current program and best practices from other cities.
- This information and information will be consolidated to help identify ideal components for an updated NTMP.
- Finally, the project will focus on proposing an updated NTMP and developing a budget proposal to council.
If council accepts the proposal, then the city will begin to consider the details of selecting treatments, affected streets, and other details of program implementation.

What is the NTMP?
The city's Neighborhood Traffic Mitigation Program (NTMP) designs and implements education and enforcement to slow speeding traffic on residential streets. When the city created the NTMP in the early 1990s, it also included a variety of engineering treatments; however funding for these and for program management were eliminated during the economic downturn in the early 2000s.
