Introductory Meetings

The Introductory Meeting phase has now closed.  This page will remain active if you wish to review the presentation or refer to any of the resources listed on this page in the future.  Please use the link under Step 2: Initial Ballot: Should the City explore traffic calming options for this street for all ballot updates and updates surrounding the project for each street.

The Introductory Meeting is the first step in a five-step process for approved streets to receive a traffic calming project.  Streets deemed eligible for a traffic calming project have been approved by City Council as part of the next project cycle.   A traffic calming project is not a mandate, but rather a choice offered to streets ranked the highest out of those deemed eligible based on the warrants outlined in the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program’s policy.  We strongly encourage you and all your neighbors to be active participants in this process.

At this time, we have no proposed designs for the streets currently eligible.

This Introductory Meeting serves as an informational meeting to:

  • Notify a neighborhood of its eligibility, giving a brief overview of traffic calming
  • Outline the process and next steps
  • Act as a forum for residents to ask questions as it relates to a potential traffic calming project

After this meeting period ends, you will be balloted to see if your street would like to continue exploring a traffic calming project and enter into the design portion of the process.

Everyone involved in this process either lives directly on the street or within a two-block radius of the street.  Due to your firsthand knowledge of the areas that most need our attention, we want to discuss the project design directly with you.  This Introductory Meeting is not a design meeting and we ask that you reserve any design comments until we enter the design portion of this process.  You will have two opportunities to give design comments and feedback as eligible streets continue to move through this process.

Although we have grouped all 20 eligible streets into one large Introductory Meeting, each street will go through the traffic calming project process individually and independently after this point.

Eligible Streets:

  • Lineberry Drive: between Trailwood Drive and Joanne Drive 
  • Harps Mill Road - Middle: between Haymarket Lane and Litchford Road
  • N State Street - North: between Oakwood Avenue and Glascock Street
  • Oakwood Avenue – Middle: between N Elm Street and N Raleigh Boulevard

  • Little John Road: between Cooper Road and the end

We want to hear from you!

Now is the time for you to ask questions and help us mobilize your neighborhood.  All 20 streets are eligible for a traffic calming project, but no projects are guaranteed at this point.  The ballot period to immediately follow the closing of this Introductory Meeting will determine if your street continues to move forward.  Please be an active participant in this process and encourage your neighbors to do the same.

The Introductory Meeting is open for viewing below and an active comment section will be available Jan. 11 -  Feb. 5.

We look forward to working with you and getting to know all of you a little better as we work together moving forward!
