The City is proposing updates to its Traffic Calming Policy and has developed a new set of Traffic Calming Guidelines to better address vehicle speeding concerns in neighbourhoods across Kingston. The updated policy and guidelines recommend new ways for traffic calming concerns to be considered and include additional traffic calming tools available for use. These include:

  • Type I (minor-adjustment) measures
  • Type II (engineered-based) measures
  • Community-based initiatives

The City is seeking input from residents on these new approaches to traffic calming. Before providing your input below, please take a few moments to review the Traffic Calming Policy and Guidelines Summary that outlines important information about the proposed updates. A list of Frequently Asked Questions and a draft of the Traffic Calming Policy and Guidelines are also available for review.

City staff will review and consider input when finalizing the policy and guidelines.

All input will be compiled in a report and presented to the Environment, Infrastructure & Transportation Policies Committee with the proposed policy and guidelines in June.
