Active Community Environments (ACE)

Many communities across the nation have begun to take action to slow traffic on their streets and to balance the needs of motor vehicles with walking and bicycling. The result has been an adoption of 'traffic calming' measures, and designs for narrower streets, lanes and alleys. While these changes have raised some concerns by fire departments and other emergency responders as well as local service providers, such as utilities and sanitation agencies, there is no reason for alarm. Well-conceived traffic calming techniques and narrower street design can accommodate the needs of emergency responders and local service agencies while creating pedestrian friendly neighborhoods.
