The Town’s streets and right-of-way are maintained by the Public Works Division. Regular maintenance includes street sweeping, installing and replacing street name and regulatory signs, repairing sidewalks, filling potholes and removing debris from the roadway. The streets division also undertakes an annual road resurfacing program, which includes slurry seal, chip seal and pavement overlays.
Transportation improvements are a top priority with the Mayor and Town Council. A number of new roads and street widening projects are currently under design and construction. As it takes time to complete major infrastructure projects, temporary improvements have been and will be constructed or installed in several locations to improve the flow of traffic in and through the Town. The overall goal is to help traffic get in and out of Town safer and with less congestion.
Transportation Advisory Committee
A citizen Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) was established in January 2006 to address transportation issues in the Town. The TAC serves in an advisory capacity to the Town Council, providing information and recommendations on issues concerning overall transportation planning within the Town. The TAC reviews transportation projects and proposes changes to the General Plan’s circulation element; provides input to the Town on the five-year Capital Improvement Program; and serves as a forum for communication with residents on transportation issues.
