American Public Works Assiociation (APWA), National Public Works Week (May 15-21, 2022)
APWA is proud to announce the theme "Ready & Resilient" for the 2022 National Public Works Week poster. Within every public works professional lies a superhero, which is dramatically represented in this year's poster. Public works professionals are always READY to serve their communities and RESILIENT as ever in their abilities to pick themselves up off the ground after encountering challenges.
The "Ready & Resilient" theme highlights the ability of these professionals to perform regular public works duties and be ready at a moment's notice to react as first responders during natural disasters and overcome trials seen in the field.
Public works superheroes help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. They are what make our communities great places to live and work. So join us in celebrating these superheroes!
2021 National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 26-30 - Drive Safe. Work Safe. Save Lives.
Each year in the spring, National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is held to bring national attention to motorist and worker safety and mobility issues in work zones. Since 1999, FHWA has worked with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) to coordinate and sponsor the event. The first national event was held at a work zone in Springfield, VA in April 2000. Over the years, other transportation partners have joined the effort to support NWZAW. In addition to a national event conducted each year, many States host their own NWZAW events.
City Council Adoption of Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) Requirements (February 11, 2021)
A Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is a study that is required by a private developer to analyze the impacts that the proposed development would have on the road network. It helps to identify necessary improvements (if any) to offset those impacts to the transportation infrastructure. The new TIA Ordinance helps create a consistent standard among the development community, citizens, and staff to ensure minimum requirements for development approvals are met.
