Neighborhood Traffic Management Program

Neighborhood Traffic Management Plan (NTMP) or "Traffic Calming" is a program that the City of La Habra takes very seriously.  The City invites residents of each neighborhood to become traffic engineers and design plans to help calm traffic for their area.  With the amazing cooperation of the neighborhoods, we currently are able to complete 3 projects each year but are planning to increase that number.  If you have any comments please call (562) 383-4151.

We are currently working on Neighborhoods K, L, and M.  Neighborhood Traffic Committee Meeting #3 is scheduled for Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 6p (Neighborhood K), 7p (Neighborhood L), and 8p (Neighborhood M) at the City Hall in Atrium-A.

We will be updating this website with the latest information.  You can find the complete NTMP list with maps and dates when we will get to your neighborhood.  If your neighborhood is currently not on the list, please contact us so that we can add it.

About the Program


On August 21, 2006, the La Habra City Council approved the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP). The development of the program was the result of several months of work from an Ad Hoc Committee and traffic engineering consultant.

The intent of the NTMP is to better accommodate residents’ requests to address traffic-related concerns and provide the City with a systematic approach to handling these requests. In addition, the NTMP provides the City and residents with a wider range of traffic management strategies to address these concerns in residential neighborhoods.

Community representatives were also appointed by the City Council to serve on the Committee. A total of 21 persons participated on the Committee.
