A TRAFFIC CALMING POLICY AND PROCEDURES FOR THE DISTRICT OF NORTH VANCOUVER BRITISH COLUMBIA

This paper was presented at the 'Community traffic solutions for the future' session. The District of North Vancouver is committed to maintaining and enhancing neighbourhood livability, retaining desirable characteristics of each neighbourhood and encouraging community-based solutions and decision making. Consequently, the District of North Vancouver employs a public involvement process to develop Traffic Calming plans for neighbourhoods which may be experiencing negative impacts from motor vehicle traffic. Traffic Calming is the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behaviour and imporve conditions for non-motorized street users. Traffic Calming can be installed as a retrofit improvement to an existing neighbourhood or in newly constructed neighbourhoods as a design feature. This paper describes the District's policies and procedures to determine the need from a traffic calming project. It also shows how the District conducts performance reviews of installed traffic calming plans. For the covering abstract of this conference see IRRD number E200820. (A)
