The proposal included temporary installation of <br />tluee-way stops signs at the intersections of Harding, Vista de Sierra and Vista del Campo. The <br />temporary devices were installed in December 2009, with the purpose to slow down vehicle <br />speeds. Prior to installation, the 8~[I' percentile vehicle speeds averaged 31.8 mph. <br />Staff gathered traffic data to assess the effectiveness of this proposal for approximately five <br />months after die stop signs were installed. Data collected indicates vehicle speeds have <br />decreased to 29 mph. The last step in the Traffic Calming policy process is to inform residents <br />of. the data findings and conduct a final vote on the devices. <br />A final ballot was sent to residents in June 2010, asking if residents would be in favor of <br />permanent installation of these traffic devices. A total of 68 ballots were mailed originally, <br />however, due to residential vacancies, 3 ballots were retxu-ned. Out of the 66 mailed ballots, 39 <br />residents responded. The Traffic Calming policy requires 67% approval rating from the votes <br />returned in order to forward the proposal to Town Council for review. <br />1 - t, ~,'~} ~w~) <br />PREPARED BY: TODD CAPURSO <br />Director of Parks and Public Works <br />__...,._. __.._~__._ ~ ~`~ ...A__._ ~_. ._.._.__ ___.._______ <br />__._ <br />Reviewed by: ~S.~Assistaut Town Manager ~~Ufown Attorney Clerk Administrator <br />!Finance Commxmity Development <br />NiPP0.r,,~lANAGE~IGNr\COUNCIL~COUNCIL REPORTS'~~010 Repors~Augus[ 2\Vis[adel\~lon[e.Traffic Calmine Permanen[ Devices.docx <br />
