The City of Citrus Heights receives hundreds of requests each year for the installation of stop signs, speed humps, and other traffic control devices to reduce speeding in neighborhoods. The current Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) requires investigation, analysis, and a determination of whether the request is the most effective solution. This process takes time and is not very transparent to the community. The initiation of the MMTSP is intended to update, improve, and streamline the process allowing the City to quickly respond to citizen requests and track the status of requests anywhere in the process. Further, the MMTSP will promote and provide tools for Citrus Heights residents to improve safety in their own neighborhoods. The community is invited to help develop the MMTSP so that they have input into the program, and better understand how it works.
The MMTSP is funded through a Caltrans Sustainable Communities $180,000 grant with a local $23,321 match from the City of Citrus Heights.

The MMTSP will be completed by JULY 2021. However, there are important program milestones between now and the completion date. See the MMTSP Community Meetings for event announcements and stay informed of the program’s progress. You can also keep up with the project and other events at Facebook.com/CityofCitrusHeights/.
Previous requests made by residents for safety improvements will be incorporated into the new process being developed and remain in the order they were received. They will be ranked and prioritized using the procedures being developed as part of the MMTSP with input from the community.
The city will identify and prioritize safety improvements ranging from education and enforcement programs to capital improvements that may be incorporate into the City’s 5-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
One of the goals of the program is to develop low-cost, near-term solutions that can be implemented and evaluated for effectiveness. Should the evaluation near term treatments warrant higher cost solutions, the city will program funding toward improvements through the budget and CIP process, seeking grant and/or other funding sources to supplement construction costs.
