Public Meeting to Discuss City of Waterbury Residential Traffic Calming Study

(Waterbury, CT) – The Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) will be hosting a public meeting and charrette activity to gather public input for the development of the Waterbury Residential Traffic Calming Study. The NVCOG invites Waterbury residents, business owners, transportation advocates, and local officials to participate in this event set to take place on Monday, June 17, 2024, 6:00 PM at Silas Bronson Library (267 Grand Street, Waterbury, CT). This marks the first of several meetings throughout the City of Waterbury.

As the NVCOG works to achieve its goal of zero deaths and serious injuries from traffic crashes by 2060, the agency is developing a sample policy and guidebook outlining how Waterbury may best address road safety concerns and respond to resident requests. Following its completion, the city will consider ways to best implement the study’s recommendations.

The goal of the public meeting is to solicit public input regarding perceived speed issue locations, preferred traffic calming interventions, and ideal public request processes. The charrette is an interactive activity that allows participants to collaborate with professionals, share ideas, and explore innovative solutions. During the meeting, NVCOG staff will provide a brief overview of the study, and participants will have the chance to actively contribute their ideas, suggestions, and concerns.
