North Peachtree Traffic Calming
Traffic Calming Study
The North Peachtree Corridor between Davantry Road and Mount Vernon Road has qualified for Traffic Calming improvements per the city's Traffic Calming Policy. The city received an ititial petition with signatures from 20% of the affected residents and conducted a speed study, which showed that the 85th percentile for speed is 36 mph along one segment measured. The city has since selected a consulting firm to facilitate a neighborhood meeting and produce a comprehensive design for the project.
A neighborhood meeting was held in June 2016 for affected residents. The participants were presented with the available traffic calming tools that may be implemented and were able to provide their feedback to city staff and its consultant. A final design recommendation was developed and distributed to the community in July. Per the city's policy, 65% of the affected households must be in favor of the plan in order for the city to create a Traffic Calming District and construct the proposed traffic calming measures.
In October 2016, the neighborhood submitted a petition to the city showing that 73% of the affected households were in favor of the proposed traffic calming measures. As a result, a Resolution to create a Traffic Calming District was approved by the City Council in November 2016. Construction for this project is anticipated to begin in the Summer of 2017.
