Public Input Sought on Traffic Calming Guidelines

The City of Beverly Hills has released a Draft Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) “How to” guide for public review. The proposed program is aimed at reducing speeding and cut-through vehicle traffic on residential streets. It will also help implement physical design elements and strategies such as speed humps, traffic circles, signage and more to create safer neighborhood streets.

 The Draft NTCP includes various potential options, as well as step-by-step instructions for the community to request and obtain approval for traffic calming measures on their own streets.

Residents are encouraged to review the Draft NTCP on the city’s website at and provide their feedback by Oct. 14 in one of the following ways:

•  By phone: 310-285-2467

•  By email:

•  Submit a comment at

The city anticipates presenting the Draft NTCP and comments received to the Traffic and Parking Commission at the Nov. 3 regular meeting, followed by consideration and approval by the City Council.
