Speed Control Program


Car speedingPublic safety is a high priority for the City of Elk Grove, and we want to make sure our streets and neighborhoods are safe. That’s why the Elk Grove City Council adopted a Speed Control Program on November 12, 2008 that allows residents to work with city staff to identify tools to address speeding in your neighborhoods. Here’s how it works:

  1. Resident submit a completed Speed Control Program Petition Form.
  2. City staff review the requested street based on the initial qualifying criteria.
  3. City staff evaluate and rank the qualified street based on the traffic counts and speed survey collected and adjacent land uses.
  4. Residents vote on the proposed devices installed on the requested street – 50% response rate with 67% of respondents in favor.

Petitions submitted by November 23rd will be in the upcoming evaluation and ranking cycle for construction in 2012-13.  Petition submitted after November 23rd will be placed in the following years’ cycle.
