The Draft Neighborhood Traffic Management Program was adopted by the Santa Barbara City Council on November 9, 2001.
The Program establishes a process to include neighborhoods in the discussion of the effects of traffic on residential streets. Through a community process that includes education, community participation, enforcement, and design, the neighborhood will develop a Neighborhood Area Mobility Plan that addresses traffic and mobility concerns of residential areas throughout the City.
Since 2001 staff have worked in three neighborhoods: Oak Park, St. Francis and most recently, the Eastside neighborhood in 2013.
To improve pedestrian, bicycle, and traffic safety in Santa Barbara’s Westside and Lower West Neighborhoods, the City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department, Transportation Planning and Parking Division is conducting a bilingual outreach effort in 2019 to help the neighborhoods identify areas of concern and action steps to address those concerns.
The Listening Workshop was held on April 6, 2019, and based on the input provided, Public Works is proposing some solutions. An Approach Workshop will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 to discuss the proposals. View the Workshop Flyer. Please take the online survey in English or Spanish by June 30, 2019.
The entire outreach process will be summarized in the Westside and Lower West Transportation Management Plan, which will describe the process in which the neighborhoods participated, the input they provided, and the plan of action they determined to address its concerns. The Plan is required to go before City Council for review and approval and is tentatively targeted for Council review in late 2019. The Neighborhood Transportation Management Plan is a powerful tool that can position the City to compete more successfully for limited funding opportunities.
