Posted: May 8, 2019

CITY OF TRACY CITY COUNCIL
PUBLIC HEARING
 
The City of Tracy City Council will conduct a Public Hearing on Tuesday, May 21,  2019, at 7:00 p.m. or as soon after as possible, in the Tracy City Council Chambers, 333 Civic Center Plaza, Tracy, to consider the following:
 
Public Hearing to introduce an Ordinance amending Section 3.08.580 (Special Speed Zones) of the Chapter 3.08 (Traffic Regulations) of Title 3 (Public Safety) of the Tracy Municipal Code
 
The use of radar equipment is one of the most effective tools for enforcing speed limits and traffic safety on City streets. In order to legally use radar equipment for speed enforcement, engineering and traffic surveys are needed to establish posted speeds once every five years.
 
Section 3.08.580, Article 12, of the Tracy Municipal Code (TMC) establishes speed zones on various streets in the City. The speed limit on streets is established on the basis of engineering and traffic surveys and the applicable traffic engineering standards. An engineering and traffic survey was completed on a total of 39 segments of arterial and collector streets segments by the Engineering Division. This survey will update the posted speeds and provide the basis for the proposed amendments of the municipal code; thus resulting in continuation of special speed zones with updated speed limits on the street segments.
 
The speeds are getting updated for the following street segments:
