The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) looks at the planning and budgeting aspects for all public improvements within the Village. This includes alleys, buildings/grounds, CDBG projects, equipment, parking lots, parks, sanitary sewer, sidewalks, streets, street lights, storm sewer, and water mains. Typically, these projects are funded through a combination of borrowed money and a variety of other funding sources. Each project looks at different levels of work to continually keep the Villages infrastructure in good condition.
The Village is responsible for providing and maintaining all of the street signs throughout our network of roadways and parking lots. Please call (414-962-6690) or email the Village Engineer for more information regarding signage.
Information Regarding Stop Sign Requests
- Write a letter or email to the Village Engineer. Be specific on why you think a stop sign would help at the requested intersection.
- The Village Engineer will review the crash map to determine if there is a frequency of crashes. The Village Engineer will also notify the Police Department to get their input on safety at the requested intersection.
- If several crashes have occurred at the intersection, then the Engineering Department will make field observations and obtain accident reports to verify the types of crashes that occurred.
- If the crash data indicates that a stop sign may reduce the frequency, then the Engineering Department will conduct a study of the criteria listed above to make a recommendation to the Village Board.
- The Village Board will make the final decision regarding the request.
Stop Sign Purpose
The purpose of a stop sign is to reduce the frequency of crashes at an intersection that can be preventable by such a device. In order to determine whether a stop sign will actually lower the crash incidents the following criteria are reviewed:
- Three-year accident history
- Vehicular and pedestrian conflicts (more than 100 pedestrians per hour for an 8 hour period)
- Vehicular volume or concentrated traffic
