AREA 11 TRAFFIC CALMING PROJECT

Background 

In early 2020, ICHA and the Homeowner Representative Board (HRB) met with the UCI Police Department and residents on Turing Street to discuss unsafe driving and safety. Neighbors voiced concerns about cars speeding in areas with pedestrians, cyclists, and in particular, children at play. Since that time, ICHA and the HRB Transportation Committee, in collaboration with UCI PD and residents, have been working to understand the issue and analyze potential solutions. On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, ICHA Manager of Planning & Construction Bryce Bunker presented the findings of a traffic study of Area 11 performed by traffic engineering consultant KOA. Area 11 residents were invited to attend the presentation, which was followed by a questions and answers session. A recording of the February 3 meeting is available, along with the Traffic Study presentation, by clicking on the buttons at right. Communications to the community from ICHA are detailed below.  At the February 3 meeting, various traffic calming measures were discussed and debated by neighbors who attended. ICHA will compile these recommendations and create an outline of the expected processes and general timelines necessary to implement them. We hope to send these details to the community later this month. In the meantime, we invite you to review these materials and direct additional questions to Bryce Bunker (contact information is below). Thank you for your attention and commitment to enhancing the safety of University Hills.
