Project Background: 

The Clover/Taylor Run community contacted the City early in 2015 about the large volume of commuter traffic cutting through the neighborhood.  A meeting was held on April 8, 2015 to discuss issues and brainstorm potential solutions.  Staff collected traffic data and analyzed the most promising solutions and then hired an independent consulting firm to peer review the work. The results of the analysis were presented at a community meeting held on July 20, 2015. The outcome of the meeting was to conduct a community survey to capture more information. A survey, which is one of the public outreach tools the City uses to gauge opinion about a project, was conducted from October 2 to October 23, 2015, with over 500 responses.  The survey is now closed. Frequently asked questions about the survey can be found here.  Results from the survey can be found here.
