OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — The Oxford Board of Aldermen expects to get a first look at a proposed traffic control ordinance when it meets April 16.
The board this week asked the Oxford Pathways Commission to come up with a traffic calming policy for the city.
The Oxford Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/p2p8XY) that Assistant City Engineer Reanna Mayoral has presented a draft proposal to the Pathways Commission.
Mayoral says the draft is a combination of a previous policy developed by city officials and modeled after the traffic calming policy used in Sunnyvale, Calif.
It outlines a process people will use for their streets considered for traffic calming measures, such as speed bumps, and how the city will determine what, if anything, should be done.
Only local, neighborhood roads will be considered — not main roads.
