Concerned about traffic in Naperville?
The public is invited to attend an open house to provide comments about traffic concerns related to Zone 11 of the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Study Program. Zone 11 is bounded by Edward Hospital on the north, Washington Street on the east, 75th Street on the south and West Street on the west and includes the subdivisions of Olympic Terrace, West Highlands, Hobson West and Maplebrook I.
The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7 in the gymnasium at Elmwood Elementary School, 1024 Magnolia Ln. The purpose of the meeting is to allow the public to provide the city with their questions and concerns related to traffic conditions in Zone 11. This is an open house event; no formal presentation will be provided.
For those who are not able to attend, the exhibits will be posted on the project webpage at www.naperville.il.us/zone11.aspx following the open house. Comments are encouraged and will be accepted via email through 5 p.m. on Monday, March 18, 2013.
Beginning this year, the city of Naperville is working with consultants to implement a new Neighborhood Traffic Study Program, which will address traffic conditions within identified neighborhoods in the City in a comprehensive manner rather than on an individual request basis as has been done in the past. Every year, the city receives numerous resident requests to investigate traffic issues such as speeding, cut-through traffic, pedestrian safety and parking concerns.
Through the Neighborhood Traffic Study Program, the city will evaluate and address neighborhood traffic concerns programmatically on a comprehensive neighborhood-wide basis. Using the City’s Master Thoroughfare Plan map, the city has identified 33 neighborhood study areas and anticipates completing one to three studies a year until all the study areas are completed. A map of the study areas and more information on the Neighborhood Traffic Study Program can be found at www.naperville.il.us/ntsp.aspx.
