Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) Ordinance and Process and Procedures Manual. 

In 2015 the Weddington Town Council adopted a Traffic Impact Analysis Ordinance that requires any major subdivision, or conditional rezoning, or portion thereof, which is expected to create fifty (50) or more peak hour vehicle trips or 500 or more daily vehicle trips to perform an analysis. This ensures the adequacy of service levels for local, private, and state road intersections that serve or are affected by a proposed project. The TIA Ordinance can be found online under Appendix C

The purpose of the process and procedure manual is to guide implementation of Appendix C, “Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) Ordinance”, of the Town of Weddington Zoning Ordinance. This manual contains processes, procedures, design requirements, and guidelines for the preparation of TIAs. This manual also details the interaction between Town staff, the applicant, traffic consultants, and the requirements for the certification and re-certification of qualified traffic consultants who prepare TIAs, as required, for development proposals in the Town of Weddington.
