At the February 5 Study Session (4 pm), the City Council will review and provide feedback regarding a study to identify traffic calming strategies and devices on Selby Lane.
In December, the City Council received information about the placement of traffic control devices at the intersection of Selby Lane and El Camino Real. At that time, the Council was not ready to commit to the installation of any devices, but asked staff to return with steps to discuss traffic calming strategies on Selby Lane. to address vehicle speeds and traffic volume.
At the February 5 Study Session, staff is providing a proposed Scope of Work to begin that analysis. It is estimated that the work will cost between $15,000 - $20,000 and it will involve technical study and analysis as well as stakeholder outreach meetings. The range and effectiveness of potential solutions will vary and could include everything from raised vertical elements (speed tables) to signing, striping and enforcement.
The February 5 Study Session is not designed to identify the solution or vet alternatives, rather it is designed to provide staff with feedback on proceeding with the Scope of Work, identifying alternatives that might be considered as part of the study, and providing feedback on the breadth of public outreach and stakeholder involvement.
Your input is important. If this issue is something you have an interest in, please plan to attend.
