The City of Port St. Lucie is committed to ensure the overall safety and livability of residential neighborhoods. One way to meet this commitment is through a collaboration of city staff and property owners in an effort to minimize the impact of traffic on neighborhoods.
The City of Port St. Lucie Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy and Guidelines provides a process for identifying and addressing problems related to speeding, excessive volumes and safety on neighborhood streets. The policy will provide a procedure to consider, evaluate and implement requests for traffic calming measures within the City of Port St. Lucie.
To develop the draft Traffic Calming Policy, staff researched and gathered adopted Traffic Calming Policies from similar municipalities throughout Florida and the United States and incorporated their adopted guidelines and thresholds as a starting point. After the draft was complete, a public involvement workshop was conducted by staff to solicit comments and concerns on the proposed policy. In addition, the draft Policy was made available on the city’s website and a dedicated email address was established to allow residents to comment on the Policy if they were unable to attend the workshop. After a six-month review period, comments were reviewed and incorporated (as applicable) into the Final Policy.
To initiate a request for traffic calming, a resident, private developer or city staff can submit a Traffic Calming Request Form (and associated petition) via mail or in person to:
121 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd.
Public Works Department
Attn: Traffic Calming Request
Port St. Lucie, Florida 34984
Or via email to TrafficCalmingRequest@cityofpsl.com. For questions, please call the Public Works Department Traffic Operations Division at (772) 344-4360.
