Neighborhood traffic management policy proposed
The City of Georgetown is asking for feedback on a proposed neighborhood traffic management policy. The goal is to take a holistic approach in addressing concerns expressed by residents about traffic speeds or volume on residential streets.
The intent of the draft policy is to provide an objective and comprehensive framework to better address adverse levels of speeding and traffic volume on residential streets and be responsive to resident concerns.
The policy works to identify issues, involve the public and City Council in the decision making process, develop possible solutions to mitigate the issues, ensure compliance with City policies, and create a budgeting process to implement approved solutions.
There will be a public meeting on the proposed policy on Monday, June 25, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Friends Room at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St. Comments from the public on the proposed policy will be collected, recorded, and shared with City Council prior to their next workshop on the policy.
