Traffic Analysis for Proposed Development

The City’s development review process is designed to help the City achieve its goal of managing growth in a responsible and sustainable manner. The applicant for development is required to submit full and accurate information upon which the City staff and elected officials can base decisions. A developer-submitted transportation study prepared by a professional engineer qualified in the traffic engineering field is a critical tool used by the City to assess the expected transportation system impacts associated with a proposed development and the long-term viability of the transportation system. A study must highlight development-specific issues, present a mitigation plan to mitigate for traffic impacts, and alert the City to the potential need to program specific projects from the Transportation System Plan into the Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
