Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (Traffic Calming)

This map depicts the treatments from the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program and shows the different types of traffic calming for the City of Salinas, Monterey County, California. The City of Salinas has adopted a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) to address and resolve Salinas neighborhood traffic concerns. These new tools and their appropriate applications provide a response to the negative effects of speeding and traffic volumes on Salinas neighborhood streets. The Institute of Transportation Engineers defines “traffic calming” as “the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behavior, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users.”

Traffic Improvement Program (Final Report)

The Traffic Improvement Program report represents the 2010 review of the City of Salinas’ (City) Traffic Fee Ordinance (TFO) program and, where appropriate, makes adjustments to the development impact fee based upon completed street construction, and revised project descriptions and cost estimates.

Traffic and Transportation Commission

The Traffic and Transportation Commission makes recommendations regarding improvements to traffic flow and safety on City streets, locations of traffic control devices, speed zones, and traffic islands.  The Commission advises on the safe use of public streets, crosswalks, sidewalks, alleys, parking lots, and curb parking. The Commission also studies and makes recommendations regarding municipal transportation systems. 

The Traffic and Transportation Commission meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Rotunda.   Please call (831) 758-7241 for general information or questions regarding agendas or minutes.  Please visit our Commission Page for more information.
