In addition, the updated plan will allow municipal planners to focus on necessary traffic projects by looking at where hospitals, jobs, education and shopping may be placed, and to identify immediate traffic needs.

Davis also on Thursday presented to the Town Council a traffic signal update. The town contracted Lee Engineering to complete a traffic signal timing study that includes recent traffic count data and field observation.
The town operates and maintains 21 traffic signals and the collected data will be used to update traffic computer software to improve the signal timings, Davis said.
He mentioned also that many of the intersections now feature protected or green-arrow left turns. "Something people don't think about while waiting for the green arrow is the technology involved with those protected signals," Davis said.
Parks and Recreation Director Brian Witty presented his proposal for the Antelope Park improvements.
Witty said planned expansion is necessary because of current demand levels. Antelope Park gets a lot of use, second to Mountain Valley Park. Improvements would include additional turf space, new ramada, a walking path, 19 additional paved parking spaces, parking lot lighting, trees and fencing.
Staff would pay for the expansion using the balance of $30,000 in current fiscal year Parks Development impact fees and a requested project budget of $180,000 in FY 2014/15. Witty said that the department recently completed expansion projects at Tonto South and Viewpoint parks by using development impact fees.
In the special StoneRidge Community Facilities District meeting that took place prior to the work study, the council members approved the resolution adopting the official canvass of the election that resulted in a "yes" vote to rescind $33 million in unissued bonds.
