All sign requests should be made to Citizen Services at (631) 957-TOWN (8696) or by using this online form. Requests for new signs (or other traffic devices) will be submitted to the Traffic Safety Committee for review and analysis. The Committee will then, if warranted, submit the application to Traffic Engineering. Traffic Engineering will then do a site study and make a recommendation on the request. This may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The Traffic Safety Committee will make a decision based on a review of the original request application and the engineering site study. The recommendation then goes to the Town Board and a hearing is scheduled. Once the hearing is held the Town will consider a resolution at the next Town Board meeting to finalize the process and effectuate the change. This entire process may take several months before a final decision is rendered.
In other cases, the Town will alert other government agencies if it receives a request regarding a sign that is not in its jurisdiction of responsibility.
Reports of damaged or missing traffic signs are then sent to the Traffic Safety Division, (631) 957-3106 or the Traffic Sign Shop, (631) 957-3104. Reports should include the location of the missing or damaged sign such as the address and the cross street name and/or intersection. The Town is responsible for responding to such reports within two hours of receipt and then correcting the situation within 72 hours.
