ACTION REPORT

February 13, 2018 FROM: Department of Engineering SUBJECT: Adopt the City of Fontana Neighborhood Traffic Management Program

Tagged Passions:neighborhood, traffic, and program

RECOMMENDATION: Adopt the City of Fontana Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP). COUNCIL GOALS: * To invest in the city's infrastructure

(streets, sewers, parks, etc.) by focusing on relief of traffic congestion. * To increase citizen involvement by informing the public about issues, program and accomplishments. * To increase citizen involvement by promoting healthy lifestyle opportunities to Fontana residents of all ages. DISCUSSION: The purpose of the City of Fontana Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) is to improve quality of life and reduce speeds of motorists driving through residential neighborhoods. The need for the program stemmed from the City s desire for a systematic and easily accessible approach to handling neighborhood traffic requests. The program is designed to provide consistent, citywide policies to neighborhood traffic management and to ensure equitable and effective solutions to a variety of traffic concerns expressed by local residents such as speeding and other traffic and pedestrian safety concerns.
Tagged Passions:streets, council, Utility, Pedestrian, neighborhood, utility, traffic, program, parks, and sewer

On December 12, 2017 a Joint City Council and Planning Commission Workshop was held to present the City of Fontana Neighborhood Traffic Management

Program (NTMP). The presentation highlighted the program s process in working cooperatively with neighborhoods to resolve neighborhood traffic issues and concerns. The program was developed in cooperation with the traffic engineering consultant Fehr Peers. Additionally, staff reached out to other cities who implemented similar programs. Highlights of the program are as follows:
Tagged Passions:boards and commissions, services, council, neighborhood, planning, traffic, and program

The program was developed by creating a committee that included staff members from the City s Police Department, Public Works, Engineering, Community

Development, and County Fire Department. The program provides a framework for the selection, application, and implementation of traffic calming improvement measures in neighborhoods and provides a workflow of the Traffic Calming Process (see Figure 1 - Traffic Calming Process workflow). The program's intent is to treat similar traffic problems equally, while recognizing the differences in individual resident levels of concern and traffic

Page 13 of 219

Regular City Council Meeting - February 13, 2018

tolerances. The program is designed to provide guidelines and methods of evaluation to systematically address neighborhood traffic problems. The

program will be implemented through neighborhood engagement. The neighborhood engagement process will allow residents to request traffic calming studies and address various types of traffic conditions. The program provides a toolbox of potential mitigation and solutions such as stop controls, speed signage, speed lumps and other methods and devices. Most importantly, the program includes substantial community input in the design of traffic calming solutions and relies on residents to bring traffic calming needs to the attention of City staff.
Tagged Passions:advertising, signage, neighborhood, traffic, and program

This approach helps ensure that traffic calming solutions are crafted to address unique neighborhood interests and to be consistent with neighborhood

character. The proposed Program is designed to improve transportation safety in residential neighborhoods and be responsive to neighborhood concerns about traffic conditions. FISCAL IMPACT: No new funding is being requested to implement the Traffic Management Program at this time.

Chapter 1. Introduction 1

CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) is a city-wide initiative to empower citizens to address

traffic calming issues. The need for the program stemmed from the City s desire for a systematic and easily accessible approach to handling neighborhood traffic requests. This document provides a framework for the selection, application, and implementation of traffic calming improvement measures in the City of Fontana. The document is intended for use by City staff in creating a consistent approach and by residents in developing traffic calming plans with guidance from City staff. DEVELOPMENT In the spring of 2017, an advisory committee of City of Fontana staff worked with a consultant to develop the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program. The advisory committee included members of the City s Police Department, Public Works, Engineering, Community Development, and County Fire Department. This document is a result of the committee s efforts.

PLANNING AHEAD Slowing and diverting traffic by means of traffic calming is beneficial to neighborhoods and can improve safety for pedestrians and

non-motorized roadway users. However, there are trade-offs with traffic calming treatments, such as slowing emergency response times and increasing commute times. The full extent of these trade-offs need to be weighed before implementing a traffic calming plan. The traffic calming methods and devices discussed in this program have been implemented effectively throughout the United States. However, traffic calming is an evolving practice and new methods should be adopted and implemented as they are proven effective. Traffic calming, or similar features, should be included in designs for new development or redevelopment projects. By designing to keep traffic calmed, a greater emphasis may be placed on non-motorized forms of transportation, such as walking and bicycling. Additionally, residents will be more receptive to traffic calming devices installed in the neighborhood prior to purchasing their home, as it is a known condition. The traffic calming treatments in this program are meant to be implemented on existing streets, not new streets. However, the City also desires to include similar designs for new streets as they are built. The design of new streets falls outside of the scope of this document, but City staff will continue considering new street design methods that create streets and balance the needs of City residents and businesses. Example street design guidance for new development is presented in the appendix.

KEY TERMS The following are key terms used in this document:

Average Daily Traffic (ADT) the number of vehicles per day on a roadway during a typical workday. Cut-through results from motorists who use minor

roadways, usually residential streets, as opposed to major roadways to avoid congestion. 85th Percentile Speed as established by California Vehicle Code, the speed used to set roadway speed limits in order to enforce by radar. As an example, of 100 vehicles, 85 of those would be traveling at the 85th percentile speed or less.
