Traffic Management Program for Neighborhoods

The City of Clive strives to ensure overall safety, protect its neighborhoods and to enhance the quality of life for its residents. Traffic that is traveling at improper speeds and an excessive amount of cut-through traffic that is consistently using residential streets can affect a neighborhood's livability, including pedestrian and bicyclist activities. To address a variety of traffic concerns expressed by local residents, the City of Clive initiated a comprehensive approach to neighborhood traffic management. The creation of the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) for residential streets represents the City's commitment to ensure the safety and livability of residential neighborhoods. 

The NTMP is designed to serve as a guide for City staff and residents to study, plan and implement processes appropriate for the particular traffic issues neighborhoods are experiencing. One of the Program's hallmarks is its focus on developing a partnership between the City and neighborhood residents to create and implement solutions together; solutions that balance the community needs and the neighborhood needs effectively. 

The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program's objectives are as follows: 
- Identify problem areas; 
- Reduce vehicle speeds on residential streets; 
- Reduce number and severity of accidents; 
- Discourage cut-through traffic; 
- Encourage pedestrian and bicycle activities; 
- Create and/or enhance attractive streetscapes; 
- Establish clear guidelines of the process and procedures to evaluate traffic calming requests; and 
- Partner with residents for the best overall program for the affected street.
