Collaboration, Committees, and You

A black woman in athletic clothing rides a shared electric scooter in a bike lane under a skybridge in downtown Minneapolis. There are cars parked alongside the curb where people are waking and eating at Murray’s. The travel lanes of the road are empty, and there is a NiceRideMN bikeshare station on the opposite curb.

Collaboration across department, agency, and community partners is essential to achieving Vision Zero. Minneapolis Vision Zero is a collaboration of 11 City departments. We also partner with Hennepin County and Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Toward Toward Zero Deaths initiative. We are grateful to the community members, stakeholders, and other agency partners who contributed to the development of the Vision Zero Action Plan.

Three committees worked to shape the Vision Zero Action Plan and the Action Plan engagement process:

  • The Vision Zero Task Force, comprised of City of Minneapolis department directors.

  • The Vision Zero Advisory Committee, comprised of community stakeholders and agency partners.

  • The Vision Zero Technical Advisory Committee, comprised of City of Minneapolis staff who will help implement the actions developed in the Vision Zero Action Plan.

Most importantly, there is our community. Your voice is important. We thank you for sharing your thoughts to help inform the Vision Zero Action Plan. A summary of what we heard in engagement to shape the Vision Zero Action Plan is available here.

Vision Zero Advisory Committee

People finish crossing the street and walk on the sidewalk in downtown Minneapolis, amid a forest of yellow traffic signal masts. A small SUV completes a left turn as the walk signal appears for those heading in the direction perpendicular to the folks finishing their crossing. The scene occurs at either the early morning or early evening hours.
