The Multi Modal Transportation Safety Program was approved at the December 10, 2020 Council meeting
Stay tuned for implementation details in early spring 2021.
Project Description & History:
The General Services Department (GSD) regularly receives requests for new signs, striping, crosswalks, speed humps, traffic calming, and traffic enforcement. The Multi-Modal Transportation Safety Program (MMTSP) will replace the 2001 Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) accompanied by a tool to prioritize requests and ensure the items and locations most important to the community are evaluated and prioritized for implementation.
The majority of these requests are in response to resident concerns of vehicle speeds and right-of-way violations on residential roadways. MMTSP has developed guidelines and procedures to initiate and evaluate requests. In addition, the MMTSP will:
Identify collision patterns, trends and “hot spots”
Develop prioritization methodology and tool
Conduct significant community engagement
Evaluate and prioritize past resident concerns
Research methods and potential funding sources for implementation
The final product will include strategies, the prioritization methodology, and an outline of the process for residents to initiate requests.
Overview of the Program:
The City of Citrus Heights is working to make roads in our community safer for everyone who uses them, with the goal of making sure our neighborhoods are safe places to walk, drive, bike and roll. The MMTSP will update and improve the way the city addresses traffic and safety concerns raised by residents. This program will:
Develop a clear and transparent process for addressing complaints, identifying the best way to fix the issue, and outlining when and how changes will be made
Develop a catalog of safety measures to address specific types of problems including guidelines for how to best apply different safety measures
Develop a way to prioritize citizen requests to address speeding, cut-through traffic, and other safety issues in their neighborhoods
Package the above features into a “tool” that allows the city to quickly respond to citizen requests and track the status of requests anywhere in the process
Give Citrus Heights residents tools to promote safety in their neighborhoods
