Take the Vision Zero Survey


Vision Zero is a community program that works to create safer streets for all of us, whether we are walking, biking, driving, or taking transit, and regardless of age or ability. In May 2019, Mayor Keller signed an Executive Order committing the City to work toward the goal of zero traffic deaths by 2040. We are drafting Vision Zero Action Plan to guide our efforts ​and would like your input!​ The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and can be done in English or Spanish.
