Neighborhoods

We prioritize the safety of Greeley residents. We help ensure children's safety in school zones through reliable school flashers and other traffic control measures including crosswalks and proper pedestrian signage. Staff also works with residents who have concerns about speeding and cut-through traffic in their neighborhoods to find solutions that will improve safety and enhance the neighborhood.

Safety Near Schools

Having safe routes to school is important for parents and students; if parents feel safe allowing their children to walk or bike to school, it creates an opportunity for the child to be active and get exercise and helps relieve school-hour traffic jams. We facilitate safe travel to and from school through pedestrian traffic control devices, route maps, and educational materials.

School Flashers

School zones in the City of Greeley reduce the speed limit to 20-mph while the flashing yellow beacons are operating. Please slow down while driving through these zones and watch for children crossing the street!

Neighborhood Traffic Safety 

Neighborhood traffic management responds to citizen concerns regarding speeds and traffic flow on residential streets. Staff conduct traffic studies in areas that have been identified by residents and assist residents with developing and implementing traffic calming solutions for their neighborhood.
