The City of Knoxville's new Neighborhood Traffic Safety Program (NTSP) will get underway in September of 2017.

Here is the final draft of the NTSP Program Guide, including appendices. A public meeting to go over the Guide will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, at the City's Public Works Building, 3131 Morris Avenue. This is a new building located south of Middlebrook Pike and east of Liberty Street.

Once the program is launched in September, the City will begin taking applications for traffic safety studies. Applications will NOT be accepted until the program officially launches.

The NTSP has been developed by the Engineering Department, Police Department, and Office of Neighborhoods in response to numerous concerns and complaints voiced by citizens who witness speeding vehicles in their neighborhoods.

An early draft of the Program Guide was released in May of 2016. City staff took comments via email, phone, public meetings, and an online survey. Here are these comments, minus names and identifying information:
