Press release from the City of Elk Grove

The City of Elk Grove is launching a program that encourages resident involvement in addressing neighborhood safety and speeding on Elk Grove’s streets.

Adopted by the Elk Grove City Council on November 12, 2008, the City’s speed control program will allow Public Works staff to closely monitor traffic and consider speed control devices on a street-by-street basis throughout Elk Grove.

“We’re asking for the community’s assistance by being our eyes and ears to keep our neighborhoods safe,” said Mayor Patrick Hume. “Together, the City of Elk Grove and our residents can partner to identify potential hazards and improve public safety by reducing speeding.”

Residents concerned about speeding on a specific street are encouraged to submit a request to the City of Elk Grove. Forms are available at www.elkgrovecity.org/speedcontrol or at the Public Works public counter (8401 Laguna Palms Way, Elk Grove).

With information brought forth by residents, Public Works staff will examine the feasibility of speed humps, tables and lumps on a given street using set criteria that includes speed, volume, adjacent land use and street length. The guidelines also establish a priority ranking system to determine the order in which requests will be addressed.

Public Works staff will collect, investigate, and rank requests throughout the year. The number of qualifying streets that will have devices installed on them will depend on available funding.

For additional information about the speed control program or to view the program guidelines, please visit www.elkgrovecity.org/speedcontrol or contact Dorothy Kam at dkam@elkgrovecity.org or (916) 478-3604.
