Resolution to Approve the Installation of Traffic Calming Devices on Hilldale Drive
Attached for your approval is a resolution for the installation of traffic calming measures on Hilldale Drive.

The residents of Hilldale Drive have been surveyed and support the attached proposed traffic calming plan for their neighborhood. The Hilldale Drive traffic calming project began with the residents’ petition received on September 24, 2008. After the initial evaluation and completion of the required speed study, two public meetings were held onsite on April 28 and May 26, 2010.

A questionnaire was sent to each address in the project area to determine their concerns, location of those concerns, and preferred traffic calming devices, among other information. This information proved useful in allowing us to attend the first meeting with a draft plan based on feedback from the residents. We walked the project limits and discussed the draft plan, which resulted in a revision of the draft plan for a total of two speed humps and one raised intersection for discussion at the second meeting. At the second meeting, the revised draft plan was shared and the devices were painted on the street for visual review and the residents requested relocation of one speed hump to be between the two drive approaches of 461 and 464 Hilldale Drive resulting in a final consensus plan.

The final consensus plan from the second meeting was mailed to the residents in the project area. Each household was surveyed if they support the plan as shown, or allowed to indicate device-by-device which portion(s) of the plan they supported. The final results are as follows:

No. of Addresses- 14

No. Surveys Supporting Plan- 12
% Surveys Supporting Plan- 92%*
