Vision Zero Action Plan
The Draft Vision Zero Action Plan has been released! The public comment period on the draft plan ended October 16, 2019. Thank you to the hundreds of people who shared comments on the draft. Staff are reviewing the feedback and will bring a revised final Vision Zero Action Plan to the City Council for consideration in late 2019 or early 2020.
The Minneapolis City Council adopted a Vision Zero goal to eliminate traffic deaths and severe injuries on City streets by 2027. The Vision Zero Action Plan outlines key steps in the next three years to make progress toward that goal. The plan was developed by City staff across multiple departments with significant input and direction from community stakeholders, partner agencies, and the public.
To reduce traffic deaths and severe injuries, the Vision Zero Action Plan includes strategies and actions that address four systems:
Safe Streets: using street design, infrastructure, and operations to improve traffic safety
Safe People: supporting and encouraging safe human behavior
Safe Vehicles: regulating and maintaining safe vehicle fleets
Safety Data: supporting a data-driven approach to Vision Zero and ensuring accountability for progress towards goals.
The Vision Zero Action Plan includes 16 strategies and 68 actions to be implemented between 2020 and 2022.
