Developments - Traffic Study
February 05, 2018
The City of Campbell Planning Department received the administrative draft of the Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) study late in the week (January 8 - 12, 2017). According to Sr. Planner Daniel Fama, they "will need some time to review it." As of February 5, 2018, we have still not received a draft copy for review.
Traffic Study – Traffic Impact Analsyis (TIA)
January 10, 2018
Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) which was initiated in September 2017, is not
yet complete. Discussion with the City of Campbell Planning Department this
week indicates that the administrative draft is expected this week. The
consulting firm conducting the study, W-Trans, is having someone else look
at it before submitting it to the City. Administrative drafts are not made
public, and there may be several iterations of the report as the City
checks to ensure that all issues are addressed and included in
expectation is that the final TIA report will be released to the public in
the first week of February. Once the final report is released, the City
will forward copies to Citizens For Sensible
Growth (CFSG), VTA, CalTrans, City of San Jose
and any other agencies which are impacted by the proposed use of this
property. All groups will have approximately 2-3 weeks to respond, in
writing, with any issues, concerns or comments. It is the intent of
Citizens For Sensible Growth, employing traffic
engineer professionals as appropriate, to closely scrutinize the final
report and respond as required.
