MMTSP - Multi Modal Transportation Safety Program
Thank you for attending our Community Workshop on October 30!
Thank you to all who joined us for the Community Workshop on October 30, 2019!
The city traffic engineer, other city staff and design consultants were also available to answer questions and receive feedback regarding the safety concerns and ideas for improvements from residents. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming meetings and opportunities to participate!
The General Services Department (GSD) regularly receives requests for new signs, striping, crosswalks, speed humps, traffic calming and traffic enforcement. The majority of these requests are in response to resident concerns of vehicle speeds and right-of-way violations on residential roadways. The Multi Modal Transportation Safety Program (MMTSP) will develop guidelines and procedures to initiate and evaluate requests. In addition, development of 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 a summary document of the Program with 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
