WHEREAS, upon incorporation of the City of Lakewood in 1996, the City accepted responsibility for traffic signalization throughout the City, which system is intended to protect the public health, safety and welfare; and,

WHEREAS, to assist in assessing traffic signalization and traffic patterns throughout the City, a Request for Qualifications was issued, seeking a consulting firm to assist the City?s Public Works Department in this effort; and,

WHEREAS, over the course of approximately one year, staff and the consultant reviewed the existing traffic signalization system, assessed needs, compared various available signal systems, issued a publicly advertised Request for Information to signal system vendors, tested two systems, and interviewed other governmental agencies currently utilizing these systems; and,

WHEREAS, at the conclusion of this process it was determined that the Naztec Apogee? controller and Naztec ATMS.now? central control system best meet the City?s operational requirements and future signal system needs; and,

WHEREAS, in addition, it was determined that an ethernet-via-copper communications system supplied by Actelis? best meets the City?s operational requirements and future signal system needs where existing copper interconnect infrastructure is sufficient; and,
