Arlington residents responded to a recent poll stating that safe streets is their highest concern. If the TBP is renewed, this will be a primary focus for the City. In July, the City Council adopted a six-year Transportation Improvement Plan with $350,000 obligated each year to neighborhood traffic calming improvements that will be funded by the renewed Transportation Benefit Program. In addition to neighborhood traffic calming projects, the renewed will:
- continue pavement preservation of city streets,
- install safety projects such as improved crosswalks, sidewalks and street lighting,
- add transportation capacity improvement projects.
