Traffic Operations Committee
The Traffic Operations Committee (TOC) considers requests for traffic control devices, regulatory signs, speed limits, parking restrictions, traffic circulation changes, and street modifications. The Committee examines issues using established standards found in such laws and guidelines as the California Vehicle Code, Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, established City warrants, and Coastal Commission standards.
The work of the Traffic Operations Committee is technical in nature. Its recommendations are based wholly on objective findings due to the considerable exposure to liability if decisions are not based on existing laws and accepted standards. The work of the Traffic Operations Commission differs substantially from that of other typical advisory boards and commissions because there is less local discretion associated with the role.
Recommendations for changes to existing traffic control devices, regulatory signs, speed limits, parking restrictions, traffic circulation changes, and street modifications are forwarded to the City Council for consideration.
Members are the City Engineer, Police Chief, Fire Chief, Public Services and Engineering Director, and Community Development Director.
Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 1825 Strand Way.
The staff liaison is Jim Newton. He can be reached at (619) 522-7313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
