Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP)

In an effort to create solutions for responding to neighborhood traffic mitigation requests, the City has adopted a comprehensive Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP).

The program's primary objectives are to: improve traffic safety on neighborhood streets by reducing speeding and cut-through traffic; foster pedestrian safety; efficiently allocate the use of public resources; and encourage citizen involvement in solutions to neighborhood traffic problems.


Funding for the NTMP program is limited. All qualifying applications are ranked using criteria specified in the NTMP manual(PDF, 6MB) . Applications that rank higher will receive a program priority. Review the NTMP flowchart for additional information regarding the process of an application.

Residents requesting neighborhood traffic calming measures are encouraged to become familiar with the requirements and options provided in the NTMP manual.

The manual was formulated with the assistance of community stakeholders, including emergency response providers, schools and a citizen-member Traffic Advisory Committee. Changes to enhance the public engagement process were adopted in May, 2013.
