Overview: Enacting the ordinance will prohibit through trucks from using Henderson Street between Rosemary Street and North Street, and North Street between Henderson Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. This recommendation is in response to a petition from three residents on behalf of those living along Cobb Terrace.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council enact the attached ordinance, which would prohibit "through trucks" on Henderson Street between Rosemary Street and North Street, and North Street between Henderson Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Key Issues:
* The Town maintains Henderson Street and North Street.
* The travel lanes are narrow along both streets and there are limited pedestrian sidewalks along North Street.
* Delivery trucks are increasingly using Henderson Street and North Street as a cut-through given the construction project on Rosemary Street and future growth in the downtown.
* Town staff reviewed the concern and are amenable to the ordinance changes.

Fiscal Impact/Resources:

The staff estimate a $500 cost for installing the two signs, including staff time. The Traffic Engineering Division operating budget could absorb this cost. Enforcement of the ordinance will have a minimal impact on the Police Department.
