Traffic Control Committee

The Traffic Control Committee (TCC) consists of 5 members representing police, fire, engineering, public works and one community member. The purpose of the committee is to perform a formal review of all incoming traffic control device requests, taking into consideration the perspective and expertise of each represented group to review, approve, deny, or recommend additional studies or options. The city engineer will lead the committee and be the funnel of all requests and processes.

The TCC will meet at a minimum quarterly (unless there are no pending applications) and more frequently if there are 3 or more pending applications before the next scheduled meeting.

To assist the Traffic Control Committee and City staff involved with traffic control, a Traffic Control Policy and Procedures Manual (Manual) has been created. The Manual is intended for use by city staff as guidance for the design, operation, maintenance, and management of traffic operations in the public right-of-way. The manual establishes standard processes for control of this work and will help ensure consistency in their application. This document will also be used by the Traffic Control Committee as the main guide when making decisions on residents’ requested traffic control device installations.
