Stage 2: traffic plan
(Typical duration: 2 to 5 months)

- Letter and survey sent to entire community to introduce proposed plan and determine support from community
- Information session: to present the proposed traffic calming plan to community
- Modify proposed plan if required and as appropriate
- Letter sent to community to inform of recommended plan details
