How to Communicate Traffic Issues

Published December 7, 2023

Like a lot of communities with high development, including the Palisades Neighborhood, are increasingly burdened by the additional, heavy traffic. The police and City receive much data with areas of high concern regarding traffic issues.

If you have a concern your best recourse to see action is to:

Fill out this speed monitoring request form (if speed is the issue)

Fill out this Traffic Safety Concern Report Form for concerns about Speeding, Pedestrians, Bicyclists, Visibility, Vegetation, Traffic Calming, Signage, Signals, Congestion, Wildlife, Parking, Driver Behavior, Road Condition, Sidewalk, Street Lighting

Express your concerns at a City’s Transportation and Advisory Board meeting

Recent comment from the City’s Engineering Dept.: We are currently looking into a program for the installation of driver feedback signs (that flash people’s speeds underneath the speed limit sign), similar to the one we have on Quarry. They have been observed to be effective, and they are good for collecting a steady stream of data points. It’s still early, but our goal is to develop a list of locations throughout the City, prioritize them, and seek funding for the installations.
