The Traffic Safety Committee meets monthly to review and discuss new traffic-related applications such as traffic signs, traffic calming controls, etc. The committee is made up of a traffic engineer, a representative from the Supervisor's Office, a community member and a representative from the Suffolk County Police Department.
The Committee will then, if deemed warranted, submit an application to the Division of Traffic Engineering. Traffic Engineering will then do a site study and make a recommendation on the request. This may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
The Traffic Safety Committee will review the request and the engineering site study. After consideration, the committee will make a recommendation to the Town Board, who will then schedule a hearing. If the Town Board issues a resolution, that will then finalize the process and effectuate the change.
This entire process may take several months before a final decision is rendered.
