The Town of Huntersville’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy inform residents of the process used to identify and resolve traffic concerns on residential streets. Under this policy, the Town’s Engineering and Public Works Department work with the subdivision's Home Owners Association (HOA), or residents to identify neighborhood traffic concerns and find appropriate solutions. This policy addresses local residential and neighborhood collector streets and does not apply to main thoroughfares that are maintained by North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).
Residential participation is an important part of all traffic calming projects. Experience in other cities has shown that traffic calming projects that are implemented without involving the neighborhood, are frequently unsuccessful, often resulting in the future removal of traffic calming measures. The Town’s goal is to give the residents who live and work in the project area the opportunity to become actively involved in the planning and decision-making process.
If you have concerns about traffic in your neighborhood, please start by reading the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy and contacting your HOA so they may address the concern. If the HOA is unable to address the concern, they may submit the Traffic Calming Request to the Town. If your neighborhood does not have an HOA, please obtain signatures and information from three (3) supporting households and submit the Traffic Calming Request Form to the Town of Huntersville Engineering Department for consideration.
