Neighborhood Traffic Complaints

Neighborhood traffic safety is one of the top complaints that citizens have about their community, and it continues to be a priority for Westminster City Council, law enforcement, and area schools. After years of use and evaluation, more traditional methods of traffic calming, including speed bumps and traffic circles, have proven ineffective. We have found that the best approach is to have officers evaluate each individual concern and work to provide the best solution. The concern will be assigned to a traffic officer for evaluation. If the officer sees there is a problem, additional enforcement can be scheduled for the neighborhood. They may also work with city traffic engineers and local HOA's to resolve the problem. 

If you are concerned about a traffic issue in your neighborhood, you may report it online here, call 303-658-4335, or email tcunning@cityofwestminster.us.
