TRN-2.04 - Conditions of Revocable Permit to Modify City Intersections

CONDITIONS OF REVOCABLE PERMIT TO MODIFY CITY INTERSECTIONS
Binding City Policy
BCP-TRN-2.04

 
PURPOSE
 
The Council finds:

1. On April 29, 1998, City Council passed Ordinance No. 172207, which authorized the City Traffic Engineer to review and issue revocable permits to applicants for neighborhood projects that are similar in scope to the demonstration "Intersection Repair" project at SE 9th Avenue and Sherrett Street, and provided conditions for these permits.
 
2. Additional information and analysis of this type of project has shown the need for minor changes for the previously established conditions.
 
3. Changes include increasing the combined traffic volume entering an intersection from 1.000 vehicles per day (vpd) to 2,500 vpd; clarifying language regarding the petition of support to reflect the intention that the two-block condition related to properties with frontages on the affected streets, and allowing the City Traffic Engineer the authority to adjust those boundaries when appropriate; and other changes that do not affect the content of the conditions and are housekeeping in nature.

 
POLICY
 
NOW THEREFORE, the Council directs:
 
a. Accept the proposed changes to the Conditions of Revocable Permit to Modify City Intersections, attached , and direct the City Traffic Engineer to review and issue revocable permits to applicants for neighborhood projects that meet the applicable terms and conditions.

 
HISTORY
