There are hereby established and adopted traffic control maps as prepared by the City Engineer, designated by letter as set forth herein, showing the City's lawfully authorized traffic control and restricted parking areas as follows:

Notwithstanding the above, in areas restricted for street sweeping, no penalty shall attach if street sweeping is not effected in that zone on that date.
The definition of "traffic calming devices" and the specifications for installation of such devices shall be as contained in the January 2001 edition of Pennsylvania's Traffic Calming Handbook, Publication No. 383 of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and as periodically revised by the same.
No less than 10 days prior to the introduction by City Council of an ordinance amending Traffic Control Map J by providing for the installation of a speed hump, notice shall be provided via first-class mail to the owners of all properties located within 50 feet in either direction of the proposed site of the speed hump installation. Such notice shall inform the property owners/residents of the content of the proposed ordinance and provide them with a ten-day time period in which to express their approval or objection to the proposed ordinance.
Amendments to the traffic control maps shall be made by ordinance.
This section shall not restrict the authority of the Mayor to establish traffic regulations for a temporary period not exceeding 90 days in conformity with Chapter 3-107, Temporary Traffic Regulations.[1]
Editor's Note: Former § 3-109.3, Procedure for traffic map recommended amendments, which immediately followed this section, was repealed 7-13-1999 by Ord. No. 27-1999. Section 2 of Ord. No. 8-2005, which amended the repealed section, has been included as § 3-109.1D.
[Ord. No. 8-1996; amended 7-13-1999 by Ord. No. 27-1999]
Traffic control maps shall be prepared and maintained on the City Geographic Information System (GIS), a computer-based record. The City Engineer will ensure that files are maintained on the GIS that reflect an accurate record of the traffic control system/devices as specified in § 3-109.1. The information maintained on the City GIS shall be public record, but the keeping of the traffic control information shall not be a requisite condition for the prosecution of any violation of this Traffic Code. For purposes of establishing a violation of the Traffic Code, the office of the City Engineer shall, when requested by the defendant, submit an affidavit indicating that the area in which the violation occurred is designated as a prohibited/restricted parking area.
[Amended 7-13-1999 by Ord. No. 27-1999]
The City Engineer shall maintain a permanent file or record setting forth all amendments to the traffic control maps.
