Vision Zero Action Planning Begins

Every two weeks, 13 people on average are seriously injured or killed on Cleveland roadways. This is unacceptable. That is why we are working in partnership with the City of Cleveland, Cleveland City Council, and community organizations to develop a Cleveland Vision Zero Action Plan.

Vision Zero Cleveland’s action plan will guide stakeholders towards eliminating serious injuries and deaths on Cleveland roads through clear, measurable strategies to provide safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all. We shared what Vision Zero is and about Cleveland’s work towards ending traffic fatalities and serious injuries with a Keynote from Leah Shahum from the Vision Zero Network at our Annual Meeting in January.

We encourage you to visit to learn more about the initiative and read below for ways to get engaged.

We need you to get involved with creating Cleveland’s Vision Zero Action Plan by: 
1. Taking the Vision Zero Cleveland survey to help the City and stakeholders understand how traffic crashes affect Cleveland residents and how we can create safer streets together. Results from the survey will help establish an inclusive, community-led vision of safety that supports the mobility needs of all of Clevelanders, and will inform targeted strategies in Cleveland’s Vision Zero Action Plan.

2. Joining the virtual Vision Zero Action Plan kick-off event. Participants will hear from nationally renowned speaker Karin Korb, focusing on designing environments and policies to increase accessibility for all. The event will also include more information on the Vision Zero Action Plan and ways Clevelanders can get involved to improve access and safety on our local streets. Register here.

3. Join a community meeting to learn more about Vision Zero and share your priorities for street safety. All are welcome to join there public events to learn more about the City of Cleveland’s Vision Zero Action Plan. Gain insights on city-wide traffic crash data and share your thoughts on the most important issues the Vision Zero Action Plan should address.

This is important work that aligns with our mission of advocating for safe streets and we are excited to see it moving forward. This plan has the potential to shift policy and programs that will make our roadways safe for all road users. We need you to be engaged with crafting Cleveland’s Vision Zero Action Plan. As more community engagement opportunities are scheduled will be sure to share them.
