Office of Traffic Management (OTM)
In response to citizen mobility concerns, the City has created the Office of Traffic Management. The OTM is a team of City staff members focused on making our streets, sidewalks and pathways safer and easier to navigate so you get to where you are going safely and in the fastest time possible. Members of the OTM team come from a variety of mobility-related departments, such as Police, Fire, and Public Works. This team is dedicated to improving the City's mobility and making the City a desirable location to live, work, and play.
