The Request Process
The process to request a speed hump is based on the City of Hapeville Code of Ordinances at Sec. 41-3-8. The steps below represent a simplified version. To view the full code, click here.
- Property owners or residents can submit a request on the Report A Concern form with the specific location in question. Please click here to complete the form.
- A traffic engineer or the local authority charged with traffic studies, such as the Police Department, will complete a traffic study and publish the results to the resident who made the request.
- If 85% of traffic from the study is 11 mph+ over the posted speed limit, the request proceeds to the residents of the street.
- Next, at least 80% of residents on the street must sign a petition in favor of the speed hump.
- Finally, the traffic engineer presents the results and a petition to the Mayor and Council for approval or denial of the installation.
Additional questions residents have asked me that need clarification.
- What is the process to request a standard stop sign, caution sign, slow sign, children playing sign, etc... or a blinking version of such a sign?
- What is the process to request official on-street painted symbols or words to help mitigate speeding traffic?
