In July 2006, the City Council adopted a formal Traffic Calming Program to address citizen complaints regarding traffic related issues. This includes some of the more typical issues of speeding cars and requests for speed bumps or stop signs.
The program consists of a phased approach to ensure the proper solution is used to solve the problem, and certain criteria must be met at each stage. An Introduction to the Traffic Calming Program is available or a full version of the Traffic Calming Manual can be viewed at the Mill Creek City Hall.
The first step is for a citizen or group to submit a validation flyer or petition to start the process, for a copy of the required Traffic Calming Forms and for more information on the program, please call the City Engineer at 425-921-5708.
Private land development projects in the City and surrounding unincorporated County area must pay fees to both the City and Snohomish County to mitigate for their traffic impacts on the surrounding roadway. These fees are used to build various road improvement projects in the approved Capital Facility Plan to improve traffic flow.
For a full copy of the Traffic Mitigation Program Methodology or for a copy of the City Traffic Mitigation Review Policy or for more information on the traffic mitigation program, please call the City Engineer at 425-921-5708. (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
