In addition to the physical items that control traffic, the Public Works Department maintains parking meters, the parking deck pay units, and coordinates the Plan Commission’s signing requests as well as develops programs to address current traffic safety issues.
Transportation and Parking Commission
The Transportation and Parking Commission conducts meetings related the transportation of people and materials; parking; traffic, including control, daily trends and abatement; pedestrians and non-motor vehicle traveling persons; and traffic signage. They are an advisory body to the Village Council.
The Village is committed to maintaining safe streets for both vehicles and pedestrians and performs vehicular and pedestrian traffic count studies as needed. There are a number of types of studies which can be performed, such as a vehicle count, speed count, average daily total, vehicle type, and directional count. If a resident feels as though traffic on a particular street is not safe, they may apply for various physical and operational solutions through the Village’s traffic calming program.
In order to begin the process of traffic calming, a resident should review the Village’s Traffic Calming Application Packet, which details the Village’s traffic calming program and gives residents information regarding the following:
- What is Traffic Calming?
- Typical Traffic Calming Review Process
- Traffic Calming Process Flow Chart
- Traffic Calming Petition Form
- Traffic Calming Policy
After the resident and at least four neighbors have completed the Traffic Calming Petition Form included in the packet, staff will review the petition and send it to the Transportation and Parking Commission and the Village Council for review and a decision.
