Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program
What is the NTCP?
The Town's Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) implements engineering, education, and enforcement to slow speeding traffic on residential streets. The NTCP is administered by the Public Works & Utilities Department in conjunction with the Transportation & Safety Committee (TSC).
Status of Current Requests

A neighborhood meeting took place on June 24, 2019 to discuss traffic calming on Rock Creek Circle and a potential mid-block crossing on Coalton Road between The Summit and Community Park. View the presentation materials.
