Regular City Council Meeting
Ordinance 2nd Reading - Traffic Operations:
Consider Ordinance No. 2022-O0094, amending Section 20.05.103 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Lubbock, with regard to the establishment of school zones and speed limits.
On June 14 2022, the City Council approved the first reading of the ordinance.
Section 20.05.103 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Lubbock establishes the locations of school zone reduced speed limits. School districts within the city limits of Lubbock make requests for traffic control to the City's Public Works Traffic Engineering Department through the school district police departments. Traffic Engineering completes a pedestrian study and presents the results to the members of the Citizens Traffic Commission (CTC) for consideration.
On May 17, 2022, the CTC recommended amendments to Section 20.05.103, Article 20.05, Chapter 20, of the City Code of Ordinances to add 4 new school zones at 3 schools. School zones with reduced speed limits are recommended at the following locations:
Carmona-Harrison Elementary School - Avenue U, 20 MPH Flashing Beacon Assemblies
Carmona-Harrison Elementary School - Cesar Chavez Drive, 20 MPH Sign Assemblies
Heritage Middle School - Iola Avenue, 20 MPH Flashing Beacon Assemblies
Oakridge Elementary School - Oakridge Avenue, 20 MPH Sign Assemblies
The ordinance amendment also includes the removal of the reduced speed school zone for Dupre Elementary, in anticipation of the school closure prior to the 2022-2023 school year.
Equipment and materials for the new school zones are estimated to cost $11,000 and will be funded from Capital Project 92742 - Traffic Signals FY 2021-22 through FY 2025-26.
