Our primary goal is to make sure that Cumberland is a safe community to live, work, and play. One of the ways in which we’re seeking to do this is through the
implementation of a formalized Traffic Calming Policy.
Traffic calming is a method of employing specific measures to reduce speeding, aggressive driving, and high levels of vehicular traffic traveling through local neighborhoods.
This policy has been developed in order to establish a structured process through which the Town can respond to and address residents’ concerns regarding these types of traffic issues that occur on Town maintained residential streets.
The purpose of the policy is to verify a concern once it is brought to the Town’s attention, evaluate it against set criteria, rank it against other known locations in Town, provide recommendations to address the issue, and determine the
effectiveness of the recommendations that are implemented.
