City changes speed limits for several roads

TULARE – Tulare is setting its sights on speed limits, and is poised to have a public hearing at the second city council meeting in February to discuss and confirm the proposed changes.

Visalia firm QK, Inc. (formerly Quad Knopf) was hired by the city to conduct the speed studies. Regular speed limit studies come as a requirement for radar-enforced speed zones. Of the 150 speed zone locations studied, eight resulted in recommendations to establish new speed zones, 11 to decrease an existing speed zone, 14 to increase an existing speed zone and 117 resulted in a no-change recommendation. The city council was expected to approve the changes on Feb. 16, which happened after press time. The recommendations are as follows:
