Can the speed limit on my street or in my neighborhood be lowered?

Local entities have limited ability to change residential speed limits. There are opportunities to lower the speed limit to 25 mph in certain situations. However, the criteria and signage requirements typically make this unfeasible.

Based on historical evidence, Town staff has found that law enforcement is the best method to ensure drivers maintain speed control. The Police Department can deploy radar trailers and additional patrol officers to an area of concern.
