The program, part of the Traffic Calming and Greenways Program (TCGP), invites residents to collaborate with the City in managing motor vehicle traffic on residential streets. The focus is on implementing traffic calming measures such as speed cushions and speed humps to enhance road safety.
The Bloomington Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Commission (BPSC) seeks resident-led projects for the Traffic Calming and Greenways Program (TCGP). The TCGP provides a process for residents to work with the City to manage motor vehicle traffic on residential streets. Traffic Calming devices primarily considered for this program are speed cushions and speed humps; in some contexts other devices may also be considered.
Up to a total of $50,000 has been allocated for Resident-Led Traffic Calming projects in 2024
