CITY OF KNOXVILLE Petition - Neighborhood Traffic Safety Program
We, the undersigned residents of Craig Road, Milam Circle and/or Colonial Forest Lane (street name), are concerned about excessive speeding on our street. We request that the City of Knoxville conduct a Neighborhood Traffic Safety Study to determine if the speeding is severe enough to justify possible traffic calming measures in our neighborhood.
We understand that:
- “Traffic calming measures” may include physical devices (such as neighborhood traffic circles and speed humps) and/or route modifications (such as partial street closures and making a street one-way).
- The City may install traffic calming if the evidence shows such measures are the only effective means for reducing speeding that endangers public safety.
- The City would not take these steps without public neighborhood meetings and opportunities for citizen input on the traffic calming plan for our neighborhood.
Please provide phone & email so that you can be notified of neighborhood meetings about speeding and traffic calming. City may spot-check to verify signatures.
